Ref Mark Halsey Matchday Referee: Mark Halsey, Welwyn Garden City

Mark Halsey enjoyed a fairly meteoric rise to the Premier League referees list having only taken up the profession in the 1988/89 season. The 41-year-old self-employed driver - or white van man - caught the refereeing bug in the Hertfordshire County League, before joining the football league as a linesman in 1993.

Halsey came into the Premiership with a reputation as a lover of injury time. He was in charge of the 1998/99 Division Two play-off final in which Manchester City scored in the 95th minute to equalise with Gillingham, before winning the match on penalties.

His first season in the top flight was relatively controversy free, averaging 3.1 bookings per game in the 16 matches he took charge of. Since then, Halsey has become one of the league's most respected referees and took charge of over 20 matches last season.

(Ed. - Ref Halsey reffed 3 Fulham games last season the League Cup 1-2 home defeat against Spurs, our 2-0 home victory over Blackburn, he booked Malbranque, Marlet and Melville, and the 1-0 home defeat against West Ham in which he booked Finnan. Last season only 5 ref's dished out more red cards than Mr Halsey)
