The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game between Gillingham and Reading’s Under 23 side this Tuesday in the EFL Trophy.

Reading’s Under 23s travel to Gillingham on Tuesday November 7 for the EFL Trophy tie at the Priestfield Stadium and the match carries a 7.45pm kick off.

Referee: Craig Hicks
Assistant Refs: Rob Smith and Samuel Ogles
Fourth Official: Lee Collins

Match Day referee Hicks has officiated 16 games in 2017/18, showing 66 yellow cards and two red cards so far.

He took in 27 games in 2016/17 mostly at National League level, with a return of 70 yellow cards and six red cards.

His highest card count that year was seven yellow cards and one red card in the Bromley v Solihill Moors clash.

Let`s hope it`s not another repeat and more of our players edge closer to automatic bans.
