Referee Gavin Ward became a referee, in the Conference League, in 2006 and joned the Football League in the following season. He was promoted to the Select Group 2 list of referees ahead of the 2018/19 season after over ten years as an EFL referee in League One and League Two.

He last refed a Fulham game when we beat QPR 2-1 at Loftus Road in June. He booked five players, three from Fulham, Cyrus Christie 32 (f), Tom Cairney 53 (f), Anthony Knockaert 64 (f).

Prior to the QPR game the last time Mr Ward refed a Fulhaqm game was when we beat Huddersfield 3-2 at The Cottage in February this year, after going 3-0 up. He booked four Fulham players, Kevin McDonald (48,f), Cyrus Christie (82,f), Marek Rodak (90+2,tw) and Stefan Johansen (90+4,f), and one Huddersfield player.

Mr Ward's previous meeting with Fulham was nearly three years earlier in August 2017 when we won 2-0 away at Wycombe Wanderers in a League Cup game. Mr Ward booked just one player Cauley Woodrow for dissent in the 32nd minute.

Mr Ward's most recent meeting with Cardiff City was in their 3-3 home defeat with Reading in February 2020. He booked seven players, four from the Cardiff squad.

Last season he refed 39 games and dished out 132 yellows and 8 reds, 3.4 yellows per game. So far this season he has managed 29 games, dished out 101 yellows and 3 reds, so 3.5 yellows per game

His busiest game recently was earlier this season, in the 2-2 draw between Hull and Wigan in September 2019, when he booked 8 players, six of them from the Wigan team.
