Referee Graham Scott, the Oxfordshire-born referee, played as goalie for Abingdon Town before injury ended his career. He then switched to refereeing working his way up to refing in the Conference from 2006/07.

In the 2008/09 season he was promoted to the National List of referees. Ahead of the 2015/16 Premier League season, Scott was promoted into the Select Group of referees and officiates in the Premier League.

The last time Ref Scott refed Fulham was earlier in the season, in October 2020, when we lost 2-1 at home to Crystal Palace. He booked one Palace player and sent off substitute Aboubakar Kamara in the 88th minute, some twenty minutes after coming on, for a bad foul.

Mr Scott's previous vist was in March 2019 when we played Chelsea at The Cottage. He booked three players including Calum Chambers and Kevin McDonald, both for fouls. Calum Chambers was our goal scorer.

Ref Scott also refed Fulham earlier in that season in the New Years game against Arsenal when he booked Timothy Fosu-Mensah (77,f). Aboubakar Kamara scored our goal in the 69th minute.

Newcastle United last had the pleasure of Mr Scott's presence last month, on the 27th November 2020, in their 2-0 away win at Crystal Palace. Mr Scott booked two players from each team.

Last season he officiated at 26 matches issuing 79 yellow cards, so a slightly below average 3.1 yellows per game, and a table topping 7 reds.

His busiest games in recent times was a Championship game between Luton and Birmingham. The Brummies won 2-1 and Mr Scott booked one Luton player and four Birmingham players adding a second yellow to Birmingham's Harlee Dean's in the 86th minute.
