Dean Whitestone is one of the longest serving referees in the professional game, having taken charge of his first EFL match back in 2005.
His first Brentford game was a 1-1 draw at home to Bristol City in October 2006 and since then he has gone on to referee a further 14 Bees outings, including our EFL Cup Fourth Round tie at Birmingham City in 2010. After a two-year absence, the Northamptonshire official's most recent Bees assignment was our 1-0 defeat at Nottingham Forest in October.
