Referee Stephen Martin’s father and grandfather were both Football League officials and encouraged Steve to take up the whistle in 2002.

Mr. Martin’s rapid rise saw his appointed to the EFL assistant referee list in 2008 and to the National League referee list in the same year. After four years he became an EFL referee and has taken charge of over 150 games and is now part of the Select Group 2 professional officials.

The 0-0 away draw at Wigan in September was the last time Ref Martin bossed a Fulham game in which he booked a player from each team including Denis Odoi of Fulham for a foul.

Mr Martin last reffed Rotherham in their 1-0 home defeat by Blackburn Rovers in April of this year.

Last season he refed 38 games and dished out 83 yellows and 5 reds, so a low average of 2.2 yellows per game.

Earlier in December this year Mr Martin reffed the Nottingham Forest v Newcastle game which Newcastle lost 2-1 and Newcastle fans were not happy so they "trolled " him on Twitter unfortunately a number got the wrong Steve Martin over in Hollywood.
