Referee Dean Whitestone had been a goalkeeper in his playing days but changed direction to follow his father, Tony, a local referee.

He progressed through the lower leagues joining the League list as an assistant referee in 2001 and succeeded in getting promoted to referee level in 2006. Mr Whitestone was a Metropolitan Police Officer  for some 16 years before joining the Referee Select Group 2 for the 2019/20 season

Mr Whitestone last refed Fulham on Boxing Day 2019 in the 3-3 away draw at Luton Town. Obviously keen to spread Christmas good will Mr Whitestone kept his cards in his pocket.

Earlier in the season he refed Fulham in a Championship game against Wigan in September 2019 which Fulham won 2-0 . Mr Whitestone booked five players including Harrison Reed and Aleksandar Mitrovic both for arguing with opposition players.

He also refed two Fulham games in 2015/2016 a 2-3 home defeat by Burnley in March 2016 when he booked three players, one from Fulham Madl (f) 85 and the 3-0 home league victory over Sheff Utd in Aug 2015. There were no bookings for Fulham but he booked two United players and sent off another two in the 88th and 90th minutes!!
