access_time 7 years ago

STEVEN RUSHTON has been named as the referee for Sunday’s FA Cup with Budweiser Round One match at Gloucester City.

The official has been refereeing Football League games for more than three seasons and has already taken charge of an O’s fixture this term.

That was the east Londoners’ 1-0 defeat to Stevenage in August, in which the man in black dished out yellow cards to Gary Sawyer and Anthony Griffith, and Boro’s David Gray.

He has refereed 13 matches in 2012/13, issuing 42 yellow cards at a rate of 3.2 per game, in addition to eight red cards.

Rushton will be assisted on Sunday by Justin Amey and Adrian Tranter, while the fourth official is Marvyn Amphlett.
