'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Ref Watch: Stuart Attwell

Hopefully, Hereford United supporters won't be left complaining about poor refereeing decisions after the final whistle of this Saturday's Coca-Cola League Two encounter with Rotherham United.

Stuart Attwell from Nuneaton in Warwickshire is one of only nine referees to be added to the Football League list this summer, and Edgar Street will thus mark his debut at this level.

The referee started at a local level rising from the NIC Nuneaton Sunday League, Midland Combination, Southern League and Nationwide Conference before securing his level one status this term.

Billy Atkinson, a Nuneaton Referee's Association official, thinks Attwell can make it to the Premiership:

'Martin deserves this recognition. He's been with the Nuneaton Sunday League from a teenager and I believe he will go right to the top.

'Everyone at the Nuneaton RA and in local football wishes him well on his first season in the Football League.'

Attwell refereed a behind closed doors friendly between Leicester City and Cheltenham Town at the Walkers Stadium the night before Hereford entertained Wolves, but this weekend will probably be the biggest match, and largest crowd, he's ever been involved with.

One thing to watch will perhaps be the amount of added time allowed at the end....the York City boss Billy McEwan certainly took full advantage of this last term.

That's because his City side earned two victories at matches refereed by Attwell deep into stoppage time.

The first a game away at Northwich, and the second a narrow 1-0 success over Weymouth at Bootham Crescent in February!
