Stephen In The Middle

STEPHEN Martin will be the man in charge of Argyle’s Sky Bet League 2 clash this Boxing Day when the Pilgrims travel to Newport.

So far this season, Stephen has officiated 18 games, showing the yellow card 53 times, the red card on just two occasions, and has awarded a total of four penalties.

Argyle’s record with the Staffordshire-born official is not the best, with the Pilgrims yet to taste victory with Stephen officiating. We have drawn two, and lost one, of the three games in which he has been the referee.

The last game Argyle played featuring Stephen was last season in Argyle’s Dockyard Derby at Home Park, where the ‘Battle of the Ports’ ended in a 1-1 draw.

Stephen’s last game was December 13th, which saw Oxford beat Bury by two goals to one. In that game, Stephen showed six yellow cards.
