Yeovil Town's home match against Milton Keynes Dons this coming Saturday will be looked after by referee Chris Sarginson (Staffordshire). Mr Sarginson was only appointed to Football League level last summer as a referee, and so we have only had him as a match referee on one occasion, although he has been an assistant for a couple of away matches in the last few years.
The one occasion in the middle was November 2008's 0-1 home defeat against Peterborough United. We were a little unimpressed by Mr Sarginson's handling of the game, where six players got booked, but where a firmer grip on some of the earlier action might have stopped the game from boiling over at various points. In the end the only surprise was that both sides kept 11 players on the pitch.
As an assistant referee, he has waved the flag at an FA Vase Final, a Football League Play-Off Final and a UEFA Cup tie. As a referee, his biggest game was to take charge of the Conference Play-Off Semi-Final Second Leg tie between Torquay United and Exeter City.
Mr Sarginson will be assisted by Andrew Bennett (Devon) and Andrew Rodda (Devon). The Fourth Official will be William Bull (Hampshire).
