Referee Tony Harrington began refereeing in the Teesside Junior Football Alliance at the age of 14 years old, having completed the basic referee course whilst at school as part of the Duke of Edinburgh award.

After 4 years as an EFL Assistant Referee and 4 years as a National League Referee Tony was appointed to the EFL referee list in 2012/13 and has now refereed over 100 EFL matches. He is now part of the new elite Select Group 2 of full-time referees to officiate at Championship matches.

The last time Ref Harrington bossed Fulham was in the 1-0 home game against Birmingham in which he booked two players one from each side, the Fulham player booked was Oliver Norwood.

He also refed Fulham earlier this season, in September, when we drew 1-1 at home to Cardiff and seven players were booked, four from Fulham, Mollo (29,arg), McDonald (70,f), Johansen (71,f) and Button (82,tw)

Mr Harrington last reffed Aston Villa in November last year when they won 2-0 at home to Ipswich and he booked two players, both Ipswich players.

Last season he refed 34 games and dished out 121 yellows and 4 reds, so an average 3.6 yellows per game. So far this season he has refed 25 games and issued 91 yellows, so an average of 3.6, and 4 reds.

His busiest game this season, so far, was a League Cup game between Wolves and Bristol Rovers back in September when he booked four players from each side and sent off a Rovers player in the 119th minute.
