Graham Scott to take charge of Brighton and Hove Albion clash

Match Officials confirmed for Saturday's visit from The Seagulls

9 September 2021

We return to action following the international break, welcoming Brighton and Hove Albion to the Brentford Community Stadium on Saturday. The Seagulls sit in eighth, winning their opening two games before slipping to defeat against Everton last time out. The match officials for the weekend's return to action have now been confirmed.

Referee: Graham Scott

Assistant Referees: Darren Cann and Mark Scholes

Fourth Official: Dean Whitestone

Video Assistant Referee: Lee Mason

Additional Video Assistant Referee: Adrian Holmes

Saturday's game will be the 15th time that Graham Scott has taken charge of a Brentford game, with only one of those previous 14 coming in the last five years. 

The Oxfordshire-born referee officiated non-league and FA Cup First Round matches from 2006/07 before joining the National List of referees at the beginning of the 2008/09 season.

It was during that campaign Scott took charge of his first Brentford games. He oversaw our 1-0 win at home to Macclesfield before refereeing the Griffin Park promotion party against Luton Town on the final day of the season. 

We would win six of our next eight games under the Berks and Bucks official. In that run was a 2-1 victory over Norwich City in August 2009, a 5-1 home win over Crewe Alexandra at the start of the 2012/13 season and our dramatic 3-2 success at Cardiff City in December 2014. 

The 2014/15 season also saw him take charge of our 3-0 defeat at Charlton Athletic and the 1-1 draw against Derby County. Scott was promoted into the Select Group of Premier League referees before the 2015/16 campaign, the same season which saw him take a 2-1 defeat at Birmingham City. That was his last Bees appointment until March and our 1-1 draw at home to Nottingham Forest. 

In total we have won seven, drawn five, and lost two of his 14 games in charge.

Scott's only outing so far this season saw him dish out five yellow cards in Manchester City's 5-0 win over Norwich City.

Brighton and Hove Albion 21/22

25 fouls - 14th in Premier League

6 yellow cards - 7th in Premier League

0 red cards - Joint-Fewest in Premier League
