Neil Swarbrick – season 2017/18

The 52-year-old self-confessed Preston North End supporter has taken charge of 23 domestic league and cup ties, during which he’s brandished 65 yellow and NO, yes, not a single red card.

Games involving Manchester City this season

Just the one and that was a Premier League home fixture against Crystal Palace, Saturday 23 September 2017 when City won 5-0. On this occasion, Benjamin Mendy, Leroy Sane, and Danilo ended up in the ref’s naughty book.

Blast from the past

Who remembers this from 2015?

Swarbrick apologises after wrongly sending off West Brom’s Gareth McAuley.

Will Mr. Swarbrick keep his red card firmly in his pocket on Sunday?
