Geoff Eltringham is one of the most seasoned pros on the refereeing circuit, having started as an Assistant Referee in 2008 before taking charge of his first game 12 months later. The County Durham referee was then appointed to the Select Group Two of referees in 2016.
His first Brentford game was our 2-0 win over Oldham Athletic in September 2011 before he awarded us a last-minute penalty at The County Ground in the 2013 Play-Off Semi-Final First Leg against Swindon Town. After four straight defeats with him in charge, Eltringham officiated our 3-1 victory over Birmingham City in January 2017 before overseeing last season's 5-0 demolition of the Blues at Griffin Park.
In total this season, Eltringham has shown 28 yellow cards and one red in nine matches.
100 fouls – 18th in Championship
12 yellow cards – 16th in Championship
1 red card – 2nd in Championship
