Graham the Ref

THE referee for Tuesday night's FA Cup clash with Port Vale is Graham Scott.

Graham is in his sixth season as a Football League referee. Scott is an experienced referee having overseen 181 matches in his refereeing career so far and has refereed in the Championship, League 1 and 2. He has officiated in 19 matches this season; he has shown 65 yellow cards, six red cards and given four penalties.

The one time Mr Scott has refereed Argyle this season resulted in a 1-0 defeat to Scunthorpe with bookings for Durrell Berry and Reuben Reid. Reid had the ball in the back of the net twice but had the goals ruled out each time. Mr Scott also turned down a vociferous penalty appeal for the Pilgrims.

Argyle do not have much luck when Mr Scott is in charge; not only have the Pilgrims not won a match with him in charge, they have failed to even score a goal. 

Graham’s first Argyle match was a 1-0 home defeat to Watford in the 2009-10 season with Krisztian Timar, Kari Arnason and David McNamee being cautioned. He refereed two Argyle matches last season. Firstly he was in the middle for a 0-0 draw away at Dagenham and Redbridge, then a 1-0 home defeat against Chesterfield. Luke Young and Curtis Nelson were cautioned in the 0-0 draw and former loanee Mark Molesley was booked in the Chesterfield defeat.
