Referee Geoff Eltringham, 36, a talented footballer in his youth and, 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 Select Group of full-time referees to officiate at Championship matches.

The last time Ref Eltringham bossed a Fulham game was in the First Leg of the Playoffs in July 2020 when we won away at Cardiff 2-0.Mr Eltringham booked two players for fouls both were Cardiff players. Josh Onomah and Neeskens Kebano were our goal scorers. Just two weeks earlier in July Mr Eltringham refed us when we drew 0-0 away at West Brom. Three players were yellow carded all of them from the West Brom squad.

Mr Eltringham previously bossed Fulham on the 1st of January 2020 when we lost 2-1 at home to Reading. Mr Eltringham booked seven players, three from the Reading Squad and Joe Bryan (45,f), Ivan Cavaleiro (62,f), Aleksandar Mitrovic (73,sim) and Anthony Knockaert (90+2,arg).

Before the Reading game he refed our 1-1 away draw at Sheffield Wednesday in September 2019. He booked three players including Bettinelli in the 90th minute for time wasting.

In January 2018 Ref Eltringham bossed the away 1-0 win at Middlesbrough. Mr Eltringham booked seven players, three from Fulham, Stefan Johansen (13,f), Ryan Fredericks (57,f), Denis Odoi (60,f) and more importantly he gave Fulham a penalty in the 95th minute which Oliver Norwood converted.

Prior to the Boro game Ref Eltringham bossed our home draw against Bolton Wanderers, in October 2018, when he yellow carded five players, four from Bolton and Kevin McDonald for dissent in the 84th minute. McDonald then went on to provide the cross for Cairney's last minute goal.

So far this season Mr Eltringham has refed Cardiff once which was in January2020 in their 2-2 FA Cup home draw with Carlisle. One player from each team was yellow carded

Last season Mr Eltringham reffed 30 games and dished out 81 yellows, so an average of 2.7 yellows per game, and an average 5 red cards.

His busiest game in recent times was the Notinham Forest game against Brentford when he booked six players. The player he sent off was Anthony Knockaerton on loan at Forest from Fulham.
