Jones to referee Magpies' Red Devils reunion

Robert Jones will referee Newcastle United's Premier League game against Manchester United this weekend.

Saturday 2nd December
Newcastle United vs Manchester United
St. James' Park
Kick-off 8pm GMT

An EFL referee since 2016, Jones' rise has been swift and he began officiating in the top flight just three years later.

The 36-year-old has already taken charge of two games involving the Magpies so far this season and interestingly, both of those matches also involved Manchester-based clubs. He was the man in the middle for City's 1-0 Premier League win over Newcastle at the Etihad Stadium in August, and also the 3-0 victory over United in the Carabao Cup at Old Trafford last month.

Jones is also a FIFA-listed international referee, and has officiated in the Europa Conference League, EURO 2024 qualifiers and international friendlies already this term.
