Iain In Charge

29 May 2016

IAIN Williamson has been chosen by the Football League to officiate Argyle's Sky Bet League 2 play-off final against AFC Wimbledon on Monday.

Williamson, who in his tenth year as a referee, has mostly taken charge of Sky Bet Championship games this season, officiating 21 games in all. He has averaged just under three-and-a-half yellow cards a game, brandishing 75 in all in this campaign. Iain has also produced five red cards and awarded four penalties. 

As for Argyle's record with Williamson in charge, the Pilgrims have won three of seven matches with Iain in the middle since 2006 - the most recent being last February, when late goals from Ryan Brunt and Lewis Alessandra secured a 2-0 win over Cambridge United. Williamson was the man in the middle at Hillsborough for the Greens' 4-2 victory over Sheffield Wednesday in March of 2011, as well as the famous 1-0 victory over Leicester City in February 2008 - Ian Holloway's first game against Argyle after leaving to manage the Foxes.

Iain has also overseen a trio of losses for Argyle: 1-0 against Port Vale in 2012, 1-0 against Swansea - awarding a penalty to the Swans, converted by Jason Scotland - and 2-1 to Charlton Athletic in 2008, despite Williamson sending off Addicks' keeper Nicky Weaver.
