Man in the middle: Andy Woolmer

First team

Andy Woolmer will be the man in the middle when Swansea City go to Brentford on Saturday (3pm).

The Northamptonshire official has refereed the Swans on four previous occasions.

The most recent of those was back in February 2010, when Paulo Sousa’s Swans drew 1-1 with Newcastle thanks to a David Cotterill goal.

Woolmer once refereed at Vetch Field, when an Adrian Forbes goal secured a 1-0 win over Leyton Orient 14 years ago.

That was during Woolmer’s first season as a Football League official.

He last refereed Brentford in December 2016, when they won 1-0 at Bristol City.

Woolmer will be assisted this weekend by Robert Hyde and Michael George, while Andy Davies will be the fourth official.
