Keith Stroud is one of the most recognisable referees on the EFL circuit having taken charge of his first professional game way back in 2004.
Over the past 14 seasons he has been involved in FA Cup and Play-Off finals, as well as spending a number of seasons officiating in the Premier League. In total, Keith has taken charge of 21 Bees games, dating back to 2006, most notably our 2-2 draw at Bramall Lane in April 2013, which saw four penalties and red cards given. In total, we have won ten and drawn three of those 21 games, most recently our 2-1 Boxing Day victory over Aston Villa.
This campaign Keith has taken charge of 29 matches showing 125 yellow, and seven red cards.
