It'll be a fresh face in the middle on Tuesday night with Andre Marriner taking charge of his first Brentford game.

The Birmingham FA official started officiating by chance. In 1992, he went to a grass roots match as a neutral spectator. When the referee didn't turn up, he was asked to referee it. At the end they paid him £10 for his services, Marriner caught the bug and passed his course in April 1992.

He was appointed to the Football League list of referees in 2003, and was given his first Premier League appointment on 13 November 2004, a 4–0 home win by Charlton Athletic over Norwich City.

In 2005, Marriner was appointed to the Select Group 1 of Premier League referees and, three years later, was added to the FIFA list of international referees. 

The Solihull-born referee has taken charge of five Wembley finals including Wigan Athletic's FA Cup Final victory over Manchester City, Manchester United's Carabao Cup win against Southampton, and Arsenal's 2021 Community Shield win over Liverpool. 

So far this season, Marriner has shown 43 yellow cards and two reds, in ten Premier League and EFL Cup games.
