Andre Marriner will referee Newcastle United's home Premier League fixture against Stoke on Sunday

By Anthony Marshall - Newcastle United Managing Editor


Andre Marriner will referee Newcastle United's home Premier League fixture against Stoke City on Sunday (3pm kick-off).

It is the fourth time this season the West Midlands-based official has overseen a Magpies' matches, having been the man in the middle of the 2-2 draw at Reading in September, a 3-1 home defeat against Manchester City before Christmas, and a 2-1 home loss at the hands of Reading in January.

On that afternoon against the Royals on Tyneside, Marriner booked five players including United duo Mike Williamson and Mathieu Debuchy.

In total this term, Marriner has taken charge of 29 games across the Premier League, Champions League, Europa League, FA Cup, Capital One Cup and Championship, issuing 85 yellow cards and sending off two players.

The 42-year-old began refereeing in 1992 when he was asked to stand-in for an official who did not turn up at a local league match, and he progressed through the ranks to become a Football League referee 11 years later.

Marriner's first Premier League appointment came in November 2004 with a 4-0 victory for Charlton Athletic over Norwich City, and he took charge of the 2010 Championship play-off final between Blackpool and Cardiff City at Wembley.

On Sunday at St. James' Park, Marriner will be assisted by Jake Collin and Ceri Richards, with Paul Tierney the game's fourth official.
