Officials - Norwich v Brighton (21/4/17)

The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Norwich City and Brighton this Friday.

Norwich City host Brighton on Friday April 21 for the game at Carrow Road and the match carries a 7.45pm kick off.

Referee: Peter Bankes
Linesmen: Geoffrey Russell and Daniel Leach
Fourth Official: Tim Robinson

Match Day referee Bankes has officiated 38 games in 2016/17 with a return of 127 yellow cards and 12 red cards already.

He was most card happy so far this season in the game between Newcastle United and Norwich City where he showed ten yellow cards. He also showed eight yellows and two reds in the match between Rochdale and Bury.

He took in 38 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 153 yellow cards and five red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Birmingham City and Reading on August 8 with a total of nine yellows being shown.

Bankes began refereeing in Liverpool in 1996, aged 14. Bankes was subsequently appointed to the EFL Referees List in 2014, prior to which he spent two years as a Select Group Assistant Referee, which included his appointment to the FA Cup semi-final between Wigan Athletic and Millwall. He refereed the National League Play-Off Final at Wembley in 2014. In his two seasons on the Referees List he has overseen two Play-Off semi-finals and was the fourth official for the FA Vase Final at Wembley in May.

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