Meet the officials | Ipswich Town

15th February
First team
John Busby

John Busby will be the referee when Swansea City host Ipswich Town on Saturday (3pm kick off).

It will be the eighth 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 against Millwall at The Den in September. The Swans won 3-0 on that day with goals from Jamal Lowe, Matt Grimes and Mykola Kuharevich.

Busby handed out four yellow cards with Carl Rushworth and Ben Cabango booked from the Swans.

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 22 matches – mostly in the Championship – and has handed out 22 yellow cards and one red.

On Saturday, he will be assisted by Richard Wild and Lee Venamore. Tom Nield will be the fourth official.
