Johnson In Charge At Colchester- Referee Watch

15 August 2016

A man from Town's National League days will officiate the trip to the Western Homes Community Stadium.

SOMERSET official Kevin Johnson has been appointed as the referee for Tuesday night's trip to Colchester United.

Mr. Johnson spent six years officiating at non-league level before being promoted to the EFL for the 2013/14 campaign, and dished out 88 yellow cards and 2 reds last campaign.

He was in charge of a number of Town games during his time at National League level, most notably the 3-1 Play-Off Semi-Final Second Leg defeat to Gateshead in 2014. The Mariners were reduced to nine men during that game when Scott Neilson was controversially sent off before Sam Hatton was dismissed in extra time to end the game as a contest.

The official was last in charge of a game in Sheffield United's 1-1 draw with Rochdale in League One action at Bramall Lane over the weekend

He will be assisted by Geoffrey Russell and Louis Marks, with Lee Betts acting as Fourth Official.
