Referee Watch - Gateshead

5 October 2015

RICHARD Wigglesworth will be the man in charge when Town take on Gateshead at Blundell Park on Tuesday night.

The South Yorkshire referee will be assisted by linesmen Ian Johnston and Liam Jones, as well as fourth official Sean Richardson for the visit of the Heed.

Wigglesworth has been a familiar face to Town fans over the past few years, having refereed Town on no less than eight occasions in the National League.

So far this season, he has given out 14 yellow cards in the four games he has refereed, but has yet to give out a red card, whilst he gave out 67 yellow cards and three reds last campaign.


Wigglesworth last took charge of the Mariners in the 4-1 victory over Bromley at Blundell Park earlier in the season, where a brace from Padraig Amond and further goals from Omar Bogle and Craig Clay saw Town pick up their second straight home victory of the season.

The official handed out four yellow cards that day without showing any reds and gave Town a penalty in the eighth minute when Bogle was brought down by Jack Holland.

He also refereed the 2-2 draw at Southport on the final day of last season, as well as the 1-0 win against Telford.
