James In The Middle

JAMES Linington will be the man in the middle for Argyle first round FA Cup clash against non-league AFC Fylde this Saturday at Home Park.

His name might ring a bell, as it was James who officiated Argyle’s 2-0 win over Hartlepool a little over a month ago. He did not issue a single card in that game.

Argyle boast a mixed record with Linington in charge, boasting four wins, one draw, and four losses - a record stretching back for over four years.

So far this season, the self-employed plumbing and central heating engineer has shown a total of 39 yellow cards, five reds, and has awarded four penalties in the 15 games he has officiated.
