Referee Watch - Cheltenham

31 March 2016

REFEREE Martin Coy will be the official when Town head to Cheltenham Town in front of the BT Sport cameras on Friday night.

The Durham official is in this third season at this level, beginning his National League career in August 2013 with a 1-1 draw between Hyde and Southport.

He has handed out 57 yellow cards and two reds in 19 games so far this season, with Torquay's Nathan Smith and Halifax's Jordan Burrow being sent off when he's been the man in the middle.

Coy will be assisted by Thomas Harty and Kevin Howick, with Antony Coggins acting as Fourth Official.


Coy took charge of Town in the 2-0 FA Trophy quarter-final victory over Woking in February. A first half brace from Nathan Arnold was enough to give the Mariners their second victory over the Cardinals that day, whilst the referee was also the official when Town drew 1-1 with Tranmere at Blundell Park in September.
