Referee Andy Woolmer, age 49 years, used to keep fit by walking his route around Northampton as a postman. He has been a National List referee since 2004 which was some twenty years after he first started refereeing at aged just sixteen.

He graduated through the United Counties League, Southern League and Conference route to the Football League National panel. Prior to achieving this he was also an Assistant for a total of ten seasons, which included four on the Select Group.

In the summer of 2016 he was appointed to the Select Group 2 of fulltime Championshp referees.

The last time Ref Woolmer bossed a Fulham game was on the 17th December 2016 in the 2-2 home draw with Derby County of the four players he yellow carded three were from Fulham, Fredericks (32,f), Johansen (40,f), Madl (90+2,f) .

Cardiff last had the pleasure of being bossed by Ref Woolmer in October 2016 when they won 2-1 away at Nottingham Forest.

Last season he refed 37 games and dished out 109 yellows and 2 reds, an under average rate of just about 2.9 yellows per game so not too bad. He is one of only nine refs out of 64 who issued 2 or less red cards last season

This season so far he has reffed 25 games, dished out 57 yellows, again an under average rate of just about 2.3 yellows, and one red so similar to last season.
