Referee Watch | Backhouse In Charge Against Morecambe

4 January 2018

CUMBERLAND referee Anthony Backhouse will take charge of Saturday afternoon's clash with Morecambe (3pm) at Blundell Park.

Mr Backhouse was promoted from the National League in the summer so is a new official at EFL level, becoming the first referee in his area to reach that level in over 40 years.

He last officiated Town way back in December 2013 in a 1-1 draw with Welling, where a 96th minute equaliser from Dayle Southwell saved a point for the Mariners in a frustrating encounter.

Blackhouse has handed out 68 yellow cards and seven reds in 22 games so far this campaign and will be assisted by Lee Freeman, Richard Wigglesworth and fourth official Nigel Smith for the fixture.
