Meet the officials | Huddersfield Town

16th April
First team
John Busby referee

John Busby will be the man in charge when Swansea City travel to Huddersfield Town on Saturday (3pm kick-off).

It will be the ninth time the Oxfordshire-based official has overseen a Swans match following his promotion to Select Group 2 in the summer of 2021.

The most recent of those matches was a 2-1 defeat to Ipswich Town, while prior to that he was in charge for the September fixture between the Swans and Millwall at the Den; goals for Jamal Lowe, Matt Grimes and Mykola Kuharevich sealed three points on that latter occasion. 

Busby began his career as an assistant referee, and served in the EFL for eight years before switching to the whistle and joining the National List of Referees in 2016.

In total this season, he has overseen 30 matches – mostly in the Championship – and has handed out 117 yellow cards and one red.

On Saturday, he will be assisted by Richard Wild and Ian Cooper. Matthew Donohue will be the fourth official.
