Swarbrick to take charge of Hammers clash

Written by Tom Easterby

Neil Swarbrick has been confirmed as the referee for Newcastle United’s Premier League clash with West Ham United on Saturday.

It is Swarbrick’s second appointment of the season, having taken charge of Everton’s 1-0 win at home to Stoke City on the opening weekend of the campaign.

The 51-year-old oversaw two Magpies fixtures last term – the 1-1 draw and eventual penalty shoot-out defeat at Hull City in the EFL Cup in November in which he sent off Hull’s Dieumerci Mbokani, and the 1-1 FA Cup draw at Birmingham City in January.

In total, Lancashire referee Swarbrick dished out 126 yellow cards and three reds in 34 matches during 2016/17, and a further two yellows in his one outing of this season so far at Goodison Park a fortnight ago.

He will be assisted on Saturday by Darren Cann and Scott Ledger, while Mike Jones will be the fourth official.
