Referee Watch - Chester H

21 April 2016

STAFFORDSHIRE official Simon Bennett will take charge of the final home game of the season against Chester FC at Blundell Park on Saturday.

Bennett, who has officiated Town on a number of occasions so far this season, has been an assistant referee at a number of games at the highest level so far this season and ran the line in the FA Cup Final when Arsenal and Aston Villa met last May.

He has handed out 45 yellow cards and five reds so far this season, with one of those being Town's Josh Gowling against Lincoln City at Sincil Bank back in September.

Bennett will be assisted by Dean Hulme and Helen Conley, whilst Sean Ferrick will be fourth official.


Bennett has officiated Town on four occasions far this season, with the last time being the 1-0 victory over Forest Green in front of the BT Sport cameras in March, where a late Craig Disley goal was the difference.

He also took charge of the 1-1 draw with previously mentioned 1-1 draw with Lincoln City in September, the 3-1 victory Harrogate Town in the FA Trophy in October and then the 1-0 victory over Kidderminster in November.
