Reading v Fulham - Match Officials

Reading v Fulham - Match Officials

As Fulham prepare to go head-to-head with Reading, we are now able to confirm who the match officials will be for the game.

Referee - Simon Hooper

Assistant Referee - Robert Hyde

Assistant Referee - Daniel Robathan

Fourth Official - Lee Swabey

With regards to the referee, Simon Hooper, last season, officiated in 43 games during which he handed out 149 yellow cards and 3 red cards.

Last season, Hooper took charge of the following Fulham fixtures:


• August 5 - Fulham 1 Newcastle 0
• March 4 - Fulham 3 Preston 1

In one fixture Hooper refereed last season, a Championship clash between Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest, he issued 9 yellow cards and 1 red card.

This season, Hooper has taken charge of 2 fixtures and issued 2 yellow cards.

Let`s hope Simon Hooper has a game where he isn`t noticeable and he lets the action flow.
