Darren Bond refereeing a Championship game

Darren Bond will be the referee when Swansea City host Sheffield United in SA1 on Tuesday evening (7.45pm kick-off).

The official from Lancashire has been refereeing in the Football League since the 2012-13 season, and took charge of his first Championship fixture in February 2013. He was formally included in Select Group 2 in 2016.

He first had the whistle for a Swans game in November 2018, a home defeat to Norwich City, and has taken charge of a further seven Swans fixtures. The most recent of those being the 3-3 draw with Bournemouth at the Stadium in April.

So far this season, he has handed out 23 yellow cards and no reds across six Championship games.

On Tuesday, Bond will be assisted by Philip Dermott and Samuel Ogles. Tim Robinson will be the fourth official.
