Referee: Keith Stroud
Assistant Referees: Lee Venamore and Steven Meredith
Fourth Official: John Brooks
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. He has stepped in to take charge of the Easter Monday fixture, replacing James Linington, who was originally named.
Over the past 15 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 23 Bees games, dating back to 2006, most notably our 2-2 draw at Bramall Lane in April 2013, which saw four penalties and four red cards given. In total, we have won 12 and drawn three of those 23 games. This season Mr Stroud took charge of our home win over Queens Park Rangers, awarding a penalty for the opening goal.
So far this season, Mr Stroud has shown 86 yellow cards, and three reds, in 27 competitive fixtures.
