Dowd In Charge For West Ham Clash

Phil Dowd will referee Newcastle United's Barclays Premier League home fixture against West Ham on Saturday

By Anthony Marshall - Newcastle United Managing Editor

 

Phil Dowd will referee Newcastle United's Barclays Premier League home fixture against West Ham on Saturday (3pm kick-off).

The Staffordshore-based official took charge of four Magpies games last season - defeats against Chelsea, Swansea and Tottenham, and a goalless draw at West Ham in May.

In total last season he was appointed to 37 games across the Premier League, Championship, League One, FA Cup and Capital One Cup, issuing 126 yellow cards and five reds.

Dowd, aged 50, began refereeing in local leagues in 1984, and having worked his way up through the ranks, joined the Football League's full list of referees in 1997.

He was promoted to the Premier League list in 2001, and took charge of his first top flight match in December that year as Fulham took on Everton.

On Saturday at St. James' Park, Dowd's assistants will be Simon Bennett and Dave Bryan, with Kevin Friend the game's fourth official.
