Craig Pawson to take charge of home league opener

The Match Officials have been confirmed for tomorrow's game against Huddersfield Town

18 September 2020

Tomorrow we play the first league game at our new home, Huddersfield Town the visitors on this historic occasion. Ahead of the visit from The Terriers, the Match Officials for the game have now been confirmed.

Referee: Craig Pawson

Assistant Referees: Richard West and Timothy Wood

Fourth Official: Antony Coggins

Craig Pawson has been a referee since 1993, working his way up the Football League ladder since the 2008/09 campaign.

The Sheffield & Hallamshire FA referee was then placed in the Select Group of Premier League officials from the 2013/14 season. 

Pawson has been involved with Play-Off, League Cup, and FA Cup finals, as well as refereeing in the Champions League, Europa League, and World Cup qualification. 

Tomorrow's game will be the fourth time he has officiated us, more than seven years after his last outing. His three previous Bees games all ended in home wins, with us losing 3-0 on the road at Chester in 2008 and 1-0 at Stevenage in March 2013, either side of a 1-0 Griffin Park win over Bristol Rovers in February 2011.

Pawson's first assignment of the season came on Monday as he took charge of Chelsea's 3-1 Premier League win over Brighton and Hove Albion, showing one yellow card and awarding The Blues a penalty.
