Charles Breakspear to take charge of first competitive game at our new home

Match Officials confirmed for visit from The Chairboys

4 September 2020

Life at our new stadium kicks-off this Sunday when Wycombe Wanderers head to West London for a Carabao Cup First Round tie. The Chairboys will become the first opponents in an competitive fixture at our new home and the match officials have been confirmed.

Referee: Charles Breakspear

Assistant Referees: Stuart Butler and John Flynn

Fourth Official: Samuel Allison

Sunday's game will start Charles Breakspear's eighth season as an EFL referee. 

The Surrey-born official took charge of his first professional game on the opening day of the 2013/14 season after a year in the National League. 

The end of that season saw his first Brentford assignment; a 3-1 home win over Notts County which included an early red card for Mapgies defender Haydn Hollis.

Breakspear has only taken charge of us once more, a 3-0 Sky Bet Championship victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers at Griffin Park in February 2016.

Not one to shy away from the big decisions, Breakspear has shown 82 red cards, including 18 during the 2017/18 campaign alone, and awarded 101 penalties in 282 professional games. His tally last season stood at 12 red cards and 140 yellows in 32 matches.

53 yellow cards - 17th in Sky Bet League One

4 red cards - 4th in Sky Bet League One
