Salisbury In Charge For Orient Clash - Referee Watch

19 August 2016

The most experienced referee in the EFL will be in charge of the game against Leyton Orient at the weekend.

LANCASHIRE referee Graham Salisbury has been confirmed as the referee for this Saturday's League Two fixture with Leyton Orient at Blundell Park.

The most seasoned official in the Football League with 15 seasons of experience under his belt prior to this one, Mr. Salisbury has officiated Town several times over the years.

The first of those was a 1-1 draw between Rotherham and Town at Millmoor back in January 2002 in which current Mariners boss Paul Hurst was part of the Millers line-up, whilst a 3-0 defeat to Torquay United at Blundell Park in April 2010 was the last time the official was in charge of a Mariners game.

Salisbury handed out 120 yellow cards and eight reds in 35 games last season and has given out seven yellows and one red in three games so far this campaign.

He last officiated Chesterfield's  2-0 victory over Swindon in League One on Tuesday night.

Salisbury will be assisted by Michael D'aguilar and Steven Copeland for the game, with David Benton acting as Fourth Official.
