📝Referee Watch | Swindon Town

A look at Saturday's match officials.

20 February 2019

Neil Hair

Peterborough-based official Neil Hair will take charge of only his second Town game at Swindon on Saturday.

It’s taken 22 years, roughly 1,300 matches and a lot of patience, but Hair has finally achieved his dream of becoming a Football League referee in the summer.

The 38 year old, who has worked his way through the ranks, spent the last two seasons refereeing at National League level and took charge of the National League play-off final at Wembley between Boreham Wood and Tranmere Rovers.

His Town debut was the early season clash at Newport County, a game where he controversially dismissed Wes Thomas in the closing stages.

In 23 games this season he has brandished the Yellow Card 70 times and the Red Card on 4 occasions.

Mr Hair will be assisted by Bhupinder Gill and Thomas Harty. The Fourth Official will be Justin Amey.
