Officials for the League Two match between Lincoln City and Yeovil Town have been published by the Football League. The match takes place on Friday 8th March 2019, with a 3.00p.m. kick-off at Sincil Bank. The man in charge of the fixture will be referee Scott Oldham (Lancashire).
He is a relatively new official on the circuit, having been promoted to Football League level in the summer of 2017. So far, he's taken charge of 25 matches, giving out 80 yellow cards and ZERO red cards. He last went to Sincil Bank in January 2018, overseeing their 3-1 victory over Newport County. The last time he sent a player off was back in January 2018, when two Notts County players were red carded in the 90th minute of their 1-2 home defeat against Crawley Town.
He comes from Poulton - a town on the Fylde coast near Blackpool, and is 36 years old. He is a self-employed joiner, whose father Barry Oldham was a Football League assistant referee. Just prior to his promotion to the League, he was given the Premier League 2 final between Swansea City Under-23s and Reading Under-23s, as well as the National League play-off second leg between Tranmere Rovers and Aldershot.
He took charge of one Yeovil Town match during the 2017-18 season. That was our FA Cup Second Round match against Port Vale at Vale Park. The game ended in a 1-1 draw, with just one booking for each side, and was a good-spirited affair, unlike some of the other meetings against the Valiants in subsequent times. He didn't raise any concerns about his performance on the day, although the match was an extremely scrappy affair.
Mr Oldham will be assisted by David Plowright (Nottinghamshire) and Robert Atkin (Lincolnshire). The Fourth Official will be Graham Salisbury (Lancashire).
