LUFC Card happy referee to take charge of Leeds
Keith Stroud will be the man in charge when Leeds United travel to Peterborough United on Saturday.
Stroud is well known for dishing out the cards and it is 88 games, stretching back to February 2009 since he last took charge of a game and did not hand out a card of any colour.
Since officiating his first game in the Football League during the 2004/05 season, he has taken charge of 247 games, showing 850 yellow cards (3.44 per game and 46 red cards (1 every 5.36 games).
Of the 247 games he has taken charge of, he has only failed to produce a card of any colour on four occasions.
The Hampshire official has taken charge of 12 games so far this season, showing 42 yellow cards (3.5 per game) and 1 red.
Last season he was in charge of 33 games, showing 125 yellow cards (3.78 per game) and 9 reds.
The last time he was in charge of Peterborough was last season when they were held to a 2-2 draw at Bristol Rovers.
His last game in charge of Leeds was also last season when they won 3-2 at Coventry.
In total, he has taken charge of Leeds on 8 occasions and he has shown 3 red cards, all to Leeds players.
He sent off Kevin Nicholls in a 1-0 defeat at Ipswich Town during the 2005/06 season. Alan Sheehan in the 1-0 win at Yeovil Town in the 2007/08 season and Jermaine Beckford in a 1-0 home win over Swindon Town during the 2008/09 season.
Despite showing 3 red cards in his 8 games in charge of Leeds, they have won 4, drawn 3 and lost 1.
