Kevin in Charge
KEVIN Wright will be the referee for Saturdays’ Armed Services Day fixture against AFC Wimbledon at Home Park.
He last officiated Argyle on August 30, 2011 at St James Park in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy where a 1-1 draw led to a penalty shoot-out. Exeter City went on to beat Argyle 3-0 on penalties.
This will be the 11th time that Wright has refereed Argyle, having previously officiated in fixtures against Exeter City, Bournemouth, Sheffield Wednesday, Doncaster, Blackpool, Southampton, Reading, Derby County, Crewe Alexandra and Colchester Untied – resulting in three victories, one draw and six defeats.
He has previously produced two red cards for Argyle players in the past, sending off Barry Hayles in the 1-1 draw against Southampton at Home Park on January 1, 2007 and Paul Connolly in the 1-0 away defeat at Derby County on February 25, 2006.
Kevin is an experienced referee, having officiated his first match in August 2003 in a match between Southend United and Cheltenham Town.
Thus far this season, Wright has officiated 32 games, producing 101 yellow cards and five red cards.
