Referee Watch - Wrexham

24 March 2016

OFFICIAL Wayne Barratt will be the man in the middle for the clash with Wrexham at Blundell Park on Saturday afternoon.

Born in Worcestershire, he has refereed in the National League since the 2007/08 season, first taking charge of the 1-1 draw between Stevenage and Woking in October 2007 and is also a regular part of the officiating team at Football League level.

He was involved in an interesting incident in October when a fan had to step in as Fourth Official after Barratt had to replace the injured James Adcock as referee during a League Two game between Portsmouth and Newport County.

So far this season, he has handed out 35 yellow cards and one red card in 16 games this season, sending off Lincoln's Lee Beevers in the Imps' game with Woking in December.

Barratt is to be assisted by Dean Chapman and Helen Conley for the game, whilst Sean Richardson will take on the role of Fourth Official.


Barratt took charge of Town's game at Welling in January, where after a first half stalemate, top scorer Padraig Amond hit a 13 minute hat-trick after half time before Craig Disley wrapped up the game and sent Town back to Cleethorpes with a convincing 4-0 away victory.

Barratt was also the official when Town came away from Eastleigh with a 1-0 victory in November.
