Referee Paul Tierney became a member of the National Group of Referees ahead of the 2009/10 campaign, bossing Macclesfield Town against Notts County in his first game.

Mr Tierney was then promoted to the Select Group of Referees ahead of the 2015/16 season after a successful seven years on the National List.

The last time Mr Tierney bossed a Fulham game was last season, 2018/2019, when we were beaten 3-0 at home by Manchester United.

Prior to the Man Utd game Ref Tierney refed Fulham earlier in the season when Fulham lost 2-0 at Liverpool in November. He booked two players one from each team, the Fulham man was Calum Chambers.

Referee Tierney was also our ref when we lost 5-1 to Arsenal at The Cottage. Two Fulham players were booked, Vietto (57,f) and Schurrle (70,f).

The last time Ref Tierney refed a Cardiff City game was in their 3-2 home win against Barnsley  in December 2019. Six yellow cards were issued with five going to Barnsley players.

Last season Ref Tierney refed 32 games dishing out 101 yellows, a slightly below average of 3.2 cards a game, and ONE red card.

This season so far he has dished out 105 yellows in 33 games, so again an average of 3.2 cards a game, but with three reds.

In recent time his busiest game was the game between Arsenal and Huddersfield when he booked nine players, five from Arsenal and four from Huddersfield.
