Paul Tierney to take charge on Sunday

Tomorrow's Match Officials have been confirmed

21 May 2022

Our remarkable first season in the Premier League comes to an end tomorrow as Leeds United head to TW8. There's plenty riding on our Sunday afternoon clash as we chase a top ten spot while Leeds head into the final game filling the final relegation place. Paul Tierney has been charged with overseeing tomorrow's game and you can find out more about the officials below. 

Referee: Paul Tierney

Assistant Referees: Lee Betts and Neil Davies

Fourth Official: Robert Jones

Video Assistant Referee: John Brooks

Additional Video Assistant Referee: Sian Massey-Ellis

After seven seasons in the EFL, Paul Tierney was added to the Select Group of Premier League referees in March 2016. Less than two years later, the Lancashire Official was elevated to the FIFA list of referees for International matches. 

The 41-year-old's career highlight so far came in April 2021 when he took charge of the EFL Cup Final between Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur. That was the third of four trips to the National Stadium for Tierney, which began with the 2014 FA Vase Final between Sholing and West Auckland Town.

The Bees record under Tierney is good with three wins, three draws, and just one defeat from seven previous encounters. The most recent of those seven came in March as the Greater Manchester Official sent off Nathan Collins, and awarded us a late penalty, in a 2-0 win over Burnley. Our previous wins under Tierney came against Rotherham United in January 2015 and at Wolves in October that same year. 

This season he has shown 115 yellow cards and four reds in 33 domestic and international matches.
