Stuart Attwell to take charge of Sunday's Emirates FA Cup Fifth Round tie

Match Officials confirmed for tomorrow's visit to Liberty Stadium

16 February 2019

Referee: Stuart Attwell 

Assistant Referees: Constantine Hatzidakis and Derek Eaton 

Fourth Official: Simon Hooper

Stuart Attwell made history in August 2008 as he became the youngest referee of a Premier League game, taking charge of Blackburn Rovers vs Hull City aged just 25. That completed a remarkable rise for the Nuneaton-born official who had only taken charge of his first EFL game 12 months previously. 

We have lost just twice in nine matches which Attwell has officiated, winning six of the last seven. We did, however, suffer defeat the last time that Attwell was in charge, a 1-0 reverse against Millwall at The Den last March.

So far this season, the 36-year-old has shown 70 yellow cards and two reds in 22 matches.
