LUFC Change in referee for Grimsby clash

In a change to the advertised referee for Tuesday`s game, Neil Swarbrick will now be the man in charge for the Leeds v Grimsby Johnstone`s Paint Trophy tie.

Andy Penn was the original referee appointed for the fixture and took charge of the Wealdstone v Rotherham FA Cup tie on Sunday.

The Lancashire official has taken charge of 15 games already this season and shown 33 yellow cards and 1 red.

Last season he took charge of 36 games showing 82 yellow cards and 4 reds.

He`s already taken charge of a Leeds cup game this season on the TV when he officiated the sides 1-0 win at Darlington in the Carling Cup early in the season.

He was in charge of Leeds twice last season, the embarrassing cup exit at Histon and Leeds 2-0 home win over MK Dons.

The last time he took charge of a Grimsby game was early last season when they lost 1-0 at home against Chesterfield.

Referee: Neil Swarbrick (Lancashire)
Assistants: P.R Marsden & A.J Scregg
Fourth official: J Waugh

Thats a shame that Penn's not refereeing, we have a good record under him.

Whether he picked up an injury at Wealdstone, he's not refereeing at the weekend either. Maybe Penn's run out of ink!
dazza71
No the FA decided he wasnt Write for the game. At least its not Clattenburg. Just watched him have another shocker in the Barnsley v Sheff Utd game.
erni
They need a ref thats got a maths degree so he lose track of the score.

I thought he had a good game, quite a few times he could have produced a card but decided to keep them in his pocket. I think a few more refs are using common sense this season.
