Referee James Linington can claim that every match in the EFL is an overseas appointment, requiring the short hop over from his home on the Isle of Wight.

He is a very experienced referee having refereed in the EFL for 12 seasons and last season he has joined the new elite group of full-time referees to officiate Sky Bet Championship matches, titled as Select Group 2.

Mr Linington last reffed Fulham in the 2-1 home victory over Barnsley back in December 2017 and he booked Liverpool loanee Sheyi Ojo for simulation along with two Barnsley players for fouls.

Prior to that game Ref Linington bossed Fulham in the 5-4 away win at Sheffield United when he booked three Sheffield United players and four Fulham players, Fredericks (33,arg), Ayite (45+2,f), Odoi (73,f), Kamara (90+6,tw).

He also reffed us in the opening game of the season when we drew 1-1 at home to Norwich and he booked 6 players three from Fulham, Cairney (66,f), Johansen(85,f), Fredericks(88,d), who got upset after their goal, clearly offside, was given. and Oliveira (88,ec, who scored their goal and got over excited), Dorrans (89,f), Maddison (90+4,f).

Last season Mr Linington bossed three Fulham games in March 2017 when we beat Newcastle 3-1 away at St James'. He booked six players, two were from Fulham, McDonald for a foul and Malone for time wasting.

In February 2017 in the 3-2 home win against Nottingham Forest when he booked Madl for a foul and McDonald for handball.

The first time Mr Linington refed a Fulham game in the 2016/2017 season was the 2-2 home draw with Norwich in October 2016. He booked Aluko and Malone for fouls. Parker for disent and Johansen for "arguing" with a Norwich player. Malone gave away TWO penelties.

The last occasion Mr Linington reffed QPR was was in January 2019 when they drew 2-2 away at Aston Villa and he booked two Villa players and five QPR players.

Last season he refed 33 games and dished out 115 yellows and 3 reds, so an average 3.3 yellows per game.

His busiest game recently was the Bristol City vrs Charlton game in October 2019 when he booked seven players and sent off a City player.
