LUFC Carlisle v Leeds Match Officials

LUFC Carlisle v Leeds Match Officials

Premiership referee Mark Halsey will be the man in charge when Leeds travel to Carlisle United on Tuesday night

Halsey only recently returned to refereeing after a fight against cancer.
He`d been taking pain killers for a sore throat for three month`s before finding out in August last year that he had a cancerous tumour in his throat.

The Bolton official found out earlier this year that he is in full remission and remarkably set about a return to refereeing at the top level.

He returned on the 3rd April when he took charge of the Rotherham United v Port Vale game.

This will be his third game in his comeback having taken charge of the Oldham Athletic v Bristol Rovers game at the weekend.

His last game in charge of Leeds United was in the second leg of last season`s play off semi final at Elland Road against Millwall when the game finished 1-1.

Referee: M. R Halsey (Lancashire)
Assistants: A. M Garrett & B. Roberts
Fourth official: B. Khatib
