Referee David Webb, 39-year-old, from County Durham, works for a charity that supports adults with learning difficulties and mental health problems.

He took up the whistle at the age of 14 after reading the match programme in 1992 when his beloved Sunderland lost 2-0 to Liverpool in the FA Cup Final at Wembley, in which the Football Association wrote about their need to recruit referees.

Mr Webb dropped out after a year but returned six years later and became a Football League assistant referee in 2006 before graduating to the middle the following year.

Fulham have not been bossed by Ref Webb before.

Hull last had the pleasure of Mr Webb back in August 2015 when they drew 2-2 away at Accrington in the League Cup. He yellow carded three Hull players and one Accrington player.

Last Season Ref Webb reffed 45 games dishing out 119 yellows, a well below average 2.6 cards a game, and 3 reds.

So far this season he has reffed 23 games showing the yellow card 56 times, a below average of 2.4 cards per game, and 2 red cards.

His busiest game this season so far is Peterborough v Shrewsbury when he yellow carded four players from each side.
