Ref Swap - Pompey v Manchester City

Ref Swap - Pompey v Manchester City

Chris Foy, who was originally scheduled for this match, is now going to officiate in the match at Stamford Bridge between Chelsea and Middlesbrough. Mike Dean from Wirral takes over the match at Fratton Park.

Mike has officiated in 19 matches this season for the Premiership, during that time he has issued 65 yellow cards and shown his red card five times, putting him at seventh place in the Referees Table.

He has presided over Portsmouth once this season, which was the 3-0 defeat against City`s neighbours United at Old Trafford. Pompey`s Sean Davis was the only player to have his name taken that day. City have seen him twice; this was at home to Sheffield United which resulted in a 0-0 draw, the other match was their 3-1 win at Villa Park when they overturned a resurgent Aston Villa, who had Gareth Barry booked.

Mike began referring at local level back in 1987, making the grade of Football League Referee in 1997. He became a Premier League Referee in 2001 and went on to officiate in the 2004 FA Trophy and also the FA Community Shield between Arsenal and Manchester United. He was also the Championship Play Off Final referee in 2006.

Mike lists his interests and hobbies as golf, running, swimming, gardening, cinema, driving and horse racing.

The revised Match Official Team:

Referee: Mike Dean (Wirral)

Referee Assistants:
Red/Yellow flag: Roger East (Wiltshire)
Yellow flag: Peter Kirkup (Northamptonshire)
4th Official: Pat Miller (Bedfordshire)


Match Delegate: Geoff Mackrell

the article isn't a case of caring who the ref is Matt, just an introduction as to who the referee is, similar to the match preview. I cannot quite understand why you feel it is of little importance, so if you feel it is not worth adding to this site then I will ensure that it stops.

Its nice to see an article about the ref, so no, dont stop the article. I think, like me, the Who Cares, refers to peoples comments of doom and gloom that normally follow the article.
