Match officials for City v Norwich

Last updated : 07 February 2008 By Michael Morris
After writing about Mike Riley ahead of the game the actual match referee turned out to be Steve Bennett.

This week the FL tell us that Richard BEEBY will be the referee. His assistants are W Barratt and O Langford with the Fourth Official A Rodda.

Mr Beeby, in 25 games so far this season, has an average of less than two cards per game being handed out. 45 yellow and four red cards have come in 19 of those games with 6 matches card free. That's some achievement.

He was the referee at Plymouth when we drew 2 - 2 in the live Sky game earlier this season and over the years he's officiated several Cardiff City games with the earliest recorded at Ninian Park against Blackpool in 1999.
