Ref watch: Simpson takes charge

Confirmation of match officials for Wanderers' midweek cup clash with Bury

Lancashire-based referee Jeremy Simpson will be the first official to take charge of a competitive match at the newly-christened Macron Stadium as Wanderers face League Two side Bury in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday evening.

In 33 games throughout the Football League last season, Mr Simpson dished out 90 yellow and five red cards. 

Tuesday night’s game will mark Mr Simpson’s first visit to BL6. However, he has taken charge of one Trotters match prior to the midweek cup clash, overseeing the Whites’ 1-0 away victory against Huddersfield Town back in April last season. 

Shaun Hudson and Glen Hart will run the line, while Peters Bankes is the fourth official.
