Referee Watch - Eastleigh

7 April 2016

REFEREE Michael Salisbury will be the man in the middle for the National League clash with play-off chasers Eastleigh at Blundell Park on Saturday afternoon.

Refereeing runs in Salisbury's family, with his father Graham being a Football League official, and the Lancashire based official followed in those footsteps when he became a National League referee at the beginning of this campaign.

So far this season, he has given out 20 yellow cards in 14 games so far this season, as well as two reds. The first of those was for for Halifax goalkeeper Russell Griffiths in their match at Gateshead earlier in the season, a card that was eventually rescinded, and the second for FC Halifax's James Bolton in their match against Altrincham last weekend.

Salisbury will be assisted by Mark Powell and Duncan Carratt for the game, whilst Sean Richardson is to be the Fourth Official.


It is only a few weeks since Salisbury was last at Blundell Park, with him being the man in the middle when goals from Jon-Paul Pittman and a brace from Padraig Amond saw Town beat Woking 3-1 in February.

He also took charge of the 1-0 victory over Dover in December.
