Referee Watch - Macclesfield

27 March 2016


REFEREE Steven Rushton will take charge of the Easter Monday trip to Macclesfield Town.

The Staffordshire official began his career as a professional official in the 2007/08 season, where he refereed half a dozen games in the National League.

He spent just two seasons at that level before being promoted to Football League status in 2008/09 but returned to National League level last campaign.

So far this season, he has handed out 48 yellow cards and four reds, with three of those sendings off coming in Forest Green's 3-0 victory over Altrincham in November.

Rushton will be assisted by Aaron Jackson and Ian Gittins, while James Madine will take on the position of the Fourth Official.


Rushton last took charge of Town in the 1-0 defeat to Gateshead in January, where an early goal from Danny Johnson ended a nine game unbeaten run for the Mariners. He was also the man in the middle for the 1-1 draw with Forest Green in November.
