Meet the officials | Burnley

31st December 2022
First team

Oli Langford will be the man in charge when Swansea City host Burnley at the Swansea.com Stadium on January 2. (3pm kick-off).

Having been refereeing since 1995, Langford was promoted to the List of Referees in 2008. When Select Group 2 was introduced by PGMOL ahead of the 2016-17 season, he was one of 18 referees added to that list.

He has taken charge of two Play-Off Semi-Finals and the 2017 FA Youth Cup final. Despite not being named a Select Group Official, he is VAR trained and can be part of the officiating team at the top level.

The west midlands official most recently took charge of a Swans game on September 3 when a Joel Piroe finish from close range earned Russell Martin’s side all three points against Queens Park Rangers.

Langford handed out three yellow cards that day – all of them to Swans players – with goalscorer Piroe, Matt Grimes and Jamie Paterson booked.

The match will mark the 12th time Langford has overseen a Swans game with all of these coming in the Championship.

On Monday, he will be assisted by Jonathan Hunt and Lee Venamore. Sam Allison will be the fourth official.
