The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Crewe Alexandra this Tuesday.

Hartlepool United travel to Crewe Alexandra on Tuesday August 16 for the game at Gresty Road and the match carries a 7.45pm kick off.

Referee: Ben Toner
Linesmen: Barry Cropp and David Plowright
Fourth Official: Paul Thompson

Match Day referee Toner has officiated two games in 2016/17 with a return of five yellow cards and zero red cards.

He took in 28 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 101 yellow cards and six red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Mansfield and Oxford on August 22 with a total of nine yellows being shown.

Let`s hope it`s not another repeat and more of our players edge closer to automatic bans.
