Foy's The Boy At Carrow Road

Chris Foy will referee Newcastle's trip to Norwich in the Premier League on Tuesday

By Anthony Marshall - Newcastle United Managing Editor


Chris Foy will referee Newcastle United's trip to Norwich City in the Barclays Premier League on Tuesday (7.45pm kick-off)

It is the third time this season the Lancashire-based official has taken charge of a Magpies match, following August's 1-0 home victory over Fulham and a single-goal triumph away at Tottenham Hotspur in November.

On that afternoon at White Hart Lane, Foy booked three players including Moussa Sissoko and Mathieu Debuchy.

In total this season, he has overseen 20 games across the Premier League, Championship, League One, FA Cup and Capital One Cup, issuing 49 yellow cards, two red cards and awarding two penalties.

Fifty-one-year-old Foy started officiating in 1983 and worked his way up the ranks before becoming a Premier League referee in 2001 - with his first appointment coming in December of that year as Bolton and Charlton played out a goalless draw.

He was in charge of the 2009 League Cup final and the following year's FA Cup final - his highest honours to date.

On Tuesday at Carrow Road, Foy will be assisted by Andy Garratt and Simon Bennett, with Keith Stroud the game's fourth official.
