Match officials confirmed for Hammers clash

Written by Luke Vinton

Paul Tierney will be the referee for Saturday's Premier League clash against West Ham United (kick-off 3pm GMT).

The 37-year-old was at St. James' Park in late August when he was referee for Newcastle's 2-1 defeat against Chelsea.

Born in Wigan, Tierney was also fourth official for Newcastle's opening game of the season against Tottenham Hotspur.

He also got his first taste of officiating in the Premier League at St. James' Park back in 2008, when he was an assistant referee in Newcastle's 2-1 defeat against Hull City.

So far this season, he has refereed 11 games, showing 34 yellow cards. He has yet to send a player off. On Saturday, he will be assisted by Constantine Hatzidakis and Mark Scholes while Lee Mason is the fourth official.
