Match Officials confirmed for visit from Boro

21 November 2018

Referee: John Brooks

Assistant RefereesSam Lewis and Graham Kane

Fourth Official: James Linington

Saturday's game will be John Brooks second in charge of The Bees as the Leicestershire and Rutland FA official continues to work his way through the football pyramid. 

Brooks is on the select group of assistant referees for the Premier League and, in 2015, joined the FIFA International referees list as an assistant. He ran the line at Wembley for the 2014 Sky Bet Championship Play-Off final and took charge of an EFL game for the first time in August 2016.

His first second-tier game was Burton Albion's 2-1 win at Reading just before Christmas last year. His second Championship assignment was his only previous one involving The Bees which saw us take three points in the north-east against Sunderland last February.  

So far this term, Brooks has taken charge of 16 matches, showing 59 yellow card and four reds.
