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
