Referee Geoff Eltringham, 36, a talented footballer in his youth, after leaving school, decided he still wanted to be involved in the game and thought refereeing was the best way to do that.

He came through the Russell Foster Tyne and Wear Youth League, Northern and UniBond leagues and then, the Blue Square North and Blue Square Premier, being promoted to the National List of Referees in 2009. In 2016 he was appointed to the new elite group of full-time referees to officiate at Championship matches.

Mr Eltringham has only reffed one Fulham game before, which was the 3-1 away win at Rotherham last seasonin Aug 2015. He yellow carded 3 players, two were Fulham players, McCormack and Christensen, both for fouls. Ref Eltringham also gave us a penalty in the 16th minute which was converted by McCormack

Eltringham last reffed Sheffield Wednesday in a 2-1 away win at Brentford last season in September 2015. He sent off two players, one from either side, and also yellow carded the Brentford keeper, a certain David Button.

Last season he reffed 37 games and dished out 93 yellows, so a low 2.5 yellows per game, and an above average 8 red cards. This season so far he has reffed 15 games and dished out 46 yellows and 2 red cards, so he appears to be holding back on his reds while increasing his yellows
