REFEREE Steve Rushton will take charge of Town's game against Forest Green Rovers at Blundell Park this Saturday.
Rushton began his career as a professional official in the 2007/08 season, where he refereed half a dozen games in the National League. He spent just two seasons at that level before being promoted to Football League status in 2008/09.
After five seasons at that level, he returned to the National League last season and gave out 55 yellow cards and five reds cards over the 17 games that he played.
So far this campaign, he has given out 21 yellow cards and one red card, with the last game he officiated being the game between Guiseley and Southport.
LAST TIME OUT
The Staffordshire based official last took charge of the Mariners in the game against Lincoln City at Blundell Park last season, where he handed out four yellow cards.
He also refereed the Mariners away at Altrincham last campaign and has already taken charge of opponents Forest Green this season, in their opening clash at Moss Lane too.
