Referee Stuart Attwell, 34 years old, made history as the youngest Premier League referee at 25 years old when he took charge of Blackburn and Hull in August 2008.

Ref Attwell graduated from Staffordshire University in 2004. Refereeing had been a lifelong ambition for him, according to his father. Attwell worked his way up from local games to non-League football, then to the West Midlands League and the Football League.

Ref Attwell became infamous for, amongst other controversial decisions, the ghost goal for Reading at Watford in 2008 when the ball clearly went wide of the post. He was suspended from the Premier League for two years

He last reffed Fulham in January of this year in the 2-1 home defeat by Brighton. He yellow carded 5 players three from Brighton along with Fulham's Smith and Fredericks, both for fouls.

Last season he refed 44 games and dished out 118 yellows and 4 reds, only 2.7 yellows per game.

This season so far he has refed 26 games and dished out 86 yellows nd 7 reds so only 2.4 yellows per game but an increasing number of reds, 4 given out in Championship games!

He enjoyed the Brighton 2-1 win over Sheff Wed back in Janury when he yellow carded five players and then sent off one from Brighton and two from Sheffield Wednesday.
