Man in the Middle: Darren England

14th August 2018
First team

Darren England will be the referee when Swansea City take on Birmingham City at St Andrew’s on Friday night.

The South Yorkshire official has been on the Football League list since 2015, and has taken charge of the last two League Two play-off finals.

He began refereeing at Championship level last season but has never previously refereed a Swans game.

England was the man in the middle when Birmingham were beaten 1-0 at home by Millwall in February.

He will be assisted on Friday by James Mainwaring and Nick Greenhalgh, while the fourth official is Peter Bankes.
