Man in the middle: John Brooks

30th September 2018
First team

John Brooks will be the man in the middle when Swansea City go to Wigan Athletic on Tuesday night (7.45pm).

The Leicestershire and Rutland official has been working in the Football League since 2016, and did his first Championship game in December 2017.

This will be Brooks’ second Swans assignment of the season, as he was also in charge of the Carabao Cup tie against Crystal Palace in August.

He has also refereed Wigan once this term, when they won 3-0 in the Championship at Stoke.

Brooks will be assisted on Tuesday by Robert Merchant and Mark Jones, while Graham Salisbury will be the fourth official.
