Ref watch: Pawson to officiate Leicester game


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Craig Pawson will officiate this weekend’s home fixture with Leicester City at Vitality Stadium.

Last season, he officiated twice at Vitality Stadium, most notably the 2-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion, the Cherries’ opening Premier League win of the 2017/18 campaign.

So far this campaign, the referee has taken charge of three top flight matches, handing out ten yellow cards and two red cards, as well as awarding one penalty.

Pawson has also taken charge of European fixtures, including a Champions League qualifier featuring Dynamo Kiev.

On Saturday, he will be assisted by Lee Betts and Ian Hussin, with Simon Hooper the fourth official.
