Lee Mason

By Anthony Marshall - Newcastle United Managing Editor


Lee Mason will now referee Newcastle United's Barclays Premier League fixture against Everton on Tuesday night, after replacing Mike Jones.

Forty-two-year-old Mason has overseen two Magpies' matches this term - a 2-0 home victory over Chelsea in November and a New Year's Day defeat away at West Bromwich Albion.

In total this term, the Lancashire-based official has taken charge of 28 fixtures across the Premier League, Championship, FA Cup, Captial One Cup and League Two, handing out 95 yellow cards, five red cards and awarding four penalties.
