Referee Michael Salisbury from Penwortham, South Ribble, Lancashire, started refereeing in the local leagues in Preston in 2001 after being inspired by his dad Graham, who has just retired after 588 Football League games.

The 36-year-old former PE teacher began refereeing in the Football League during the 2016-17 season, having only been appointed to the Vanarama National League Referee a mere 12 months earlier.

He was appointed to the Select group 2 of full time referees in summer 20/21 after leaving his role at Parklands High School in Chorley and one year later has now joined the Select Group 1 of full time Premiership referees.

This will be the first time Mr Salisbury has bossed a Fulham game or a West Brom game.

Last season, 20/21, he refed 27 games and dished out 60 yellows and 1 red, so a low average of 2.2 yellows per game.

His busiest game in recent times was the Middlesbrough vrs Blackburn game, back in August this year, when he yellow carded three Blackburn players and one Middlesbrough player following up with a straight red for a Boro player and a second yellow for one of the Blackburn players.
