This season sees the introduction of Select Group 2 – a group of officials who will operate on the Football League Championship and Jeremy Simpson has been given a full time contract in this group.

Mr Simpson last reffed a Fulham game at the beginning of this season when we drew 2-2 at home to Cardiff. He booked Madl for a foul and three visiting players.f

Prior to the above game he last bossed a Fulham game last season in April 2016 when we beat Cardiff City 2-1 at The Cottage in the Championship and he booked Ryan Fredericks.
