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.

Referee Gavin Ward last refed a Fulham game when we lost 4-1 away at Coventry in October 2021. Mr Ward booked three Fulham players, Aleksandar Mitrovic (dis), Denis Odoi (f), Antonee Robinson (f), and one Covrntry player

On his previous visit we beat Cardiff 2-0 in July 2020. Mr Ward booked three Fulham players, Anthony Knockaert (39,f), Michael Hector (58,arg), Cyrus Christie (78,f), and one Cardiff player. Fulham's scorers were Aleksandar Mitrovic, he drew a foul in the penalty area and scored the penalty, and Josh Onomah, with a right footed shot assisted by Stefan Johansen.

Prior to the QPR game the last time Mr Ward refed a Fulham game was when we beat Huddersfield 3-2 at The Cottage in February 2020, 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 Birmingham City was in their 0-0 home draw Stoke City in August 2021. He booked three players, one from Birmingham City squad.

Last season he refed 31 games and dished out 108 yellows and 4 reds, so an average of 3.5 yellows per game. So far this season he has refed 18 games dishing out 71 yellows, so a slightly higher average of 3.9 yellows per game, and 3 reds
