Officially John

JOHN Brooks will take charge of the Pilgrims for the first time...

...when Argyle entertain Newport County at Home Park in the Emirates FA Cup this Saturday.

This is John’s first full season refereeing in the EFL after previously officiating in the Vanarama National League for the previous two seasons. 

The 26-year-old has refereed 19 games this season and has shown 85 yellows and six reds. 

One of those games was Newport’s 1-1 draw at home to Crewe Alexandra on Saturday, August 20.
