Officials for Accrington Stanley confirmed

17 August 2021

Scott Oldham will be the referee in charge for Rovers’ away trip to Accrington Stanley on Tuesday.

Oldham last took charge of Rovers last season – an impressive 2-2 away draw at Peterborough United last April. During that game he handed out three yellow cards to each team.

He was also kept busy in his last Stanley game back in May - a 3-1 loss away to Rochdale. Three yellow cards were handed out to Stanley, the hosts received one.

Oldham has not distributed a red card since January 2020 - the recipient was then-Scunthorpe United striker Lee Novak who received it against Newport County for violent conduct.

Hailing from Poulton in Lancashire, the referee’s father Barry was also an official in the Football League, as an assistant referee. Oldham has risen quickly through the refereeing ranks and officiated the Premier League 2 final in 2017.

On Tuesday, he will be assisted by David Avent and Peter Gooch. Matthew Parry will be the fourth official.
