The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Morecambe on Friday.

Hartlepool United host Morecambe on Friday December 30 for the game at Victoria Park and the match carries a 7.45pm kick off.

Referee: Sebastian Stockbridge
Linesmen: Danny Markham and Helen Byrne
Fourth Official: Graeme Fyvie

Match Day referee Stockbridge has officiated 23 games in 2016/17 with a return of 94 yellow cards and four red cards already.

His highest card count this season was eight yellows in the game between MK Dons and Port Vale.

He took in 30 matches so far in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 102 yellow cards and six red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Scunthorpe and Bury in April where he showed six yellow cards with one red.

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