Tomorrow's ref could get the Rickshaw

Tomorrow's referee, Clive Penton, hails from Brighton but as far as I remember he is not a member of the West Sussex branch of CASC. He has been refereeing since 1986 and was a big name in the Isthmian League until finally making it to the national list in 2001.

He has a reputation for sending players off, but three-quarters of them are away players. He is also known for giving penalties when the incident, if any, occurred outside the box. Quite what optical defect that involves I don't know, but Specsavers are online.

You can read an interview with him here: Referee
