Meet the officials | Middlesbrough

First team
David Webb referee

David Webb will be the man in charge when Swansea City host Middlesbrough on Saturday (3pm).

The man from County Durham was just 20 when he turned to the whistle and, after a spell in non-league, was promoted to the National List of Referees in 2008.

Webb was chosen to represent PGMOL at the 2009 Dallas Cup – a prestigious youth football tournament held in the United States of America which brings in clubs from all around the world to compete.

In 2018, he was awarded the Sky Bet League Two play-off final at Wembley and the following season he was promoted to Select Group 2.

Saturday will mark the fifth time the 44-year-old has officiated a Swans match this season but his first visit to the Stadium.

He was in charge of an opening day defeat to Blackburn Rovers, a win at Barnsley, draw with Huddersfield Town and defeat at Sheffield United.

His last visit to SA1 was in December 2020 when Swans played out a goalless draw with Reading.

So far in this campaign he has handed out 113 yellow cards and four reds across 33 games. In the four Swans matches, he has booked 13 players.

On Saturday, Webb will be assisted by Nicholas Barnard and Lee Venamore. Dean Whitestone will be the fourth official.
