The Premier League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between West Bromwich Albion and Bournemouth this Saturday.

West Bromwich Albion host Bournemouth on Saturday August 12 for the game at The Hawthorns and the match carries a 3pm kick off.

Referee: Bobby Madley
Assistant Refs: M Perry and A Holmes
Fourth Official: R East

Match Day referee Madley has officiated one game in 2017/18 showing four yellow cards and one red card.

He took in 35 games in 2016/17 with a return of 146 yellow cards and four red cards.

That season his highest card count was eight yellows between Tottenham and Liverpool in August. He also showed seven yellows and one red in the match between Southend United and Scunthorpe United.

He took in 35 matches in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he handed out a total of 96 yellow cards and six red cards.

He was most card happy in the match between Chelsea and West Ham in March with eight yellows being shown, prior to that Chelsea and Southampton in October saw seven yellows.

Let`s hope it`s not another repeat and more of the players edge closer to automatic bans.
