Not the Refs fault he is bald and short and not his fault that all good football fans hate refs
It is his fault if
A- He does not understand the rules of the game
B- He shows unrelenting bias against one of the two teams

The first yellow against CIFC was for a head clash between two players fairly competing for a 50/50 header
That was how he started and it was how he continued, our right back having suffered at least minor surgery from their mid-fielder was booked for (single sentence) verbal argument with the ref who did not book said mid-fielder, within minutes he failed to book opposition LB who chased ref arguing for some 25 yards

Our CB caught the heels of the winger who recovered in a stride kept control of the ball and ran on a further 30 yards to be one on one with our GK, the keeper won the confrontation and the ref then blew the whistle for the earlier heel tap

These are typical incidents of his dreadful performance

Of course we should continue to find fault with referees as part of being a football fan but this man was the very worst and should never be allowed to officiate at higher than under 11s level

Although I have been known to criticise Canvey players in the past (and upset quite a few of the fans) I rarely criticise referees. I think it is a thankless task and thank goodness someone is prepared to do it. If a referee is bad, well, at least he is bad for both teams so I guess things do even out. But this on Saturday was something else. Bad doesn’t even come close to describing his inadequacy.

It seems that from the off he was hell-bent on being the Man of the Match. He went well out of his way to be noticed, to be the star of the game and to be the centre of attention. And in this at least, he succeeded. The game revolved around him and his ridiculous decisions.

Main problem was that his decisions were nearly all one-way. Offences that were punished against Canvey went unnoticed when committed by the visitors. Players who offended whilst wearing yellow were booked whereas identical actions by players in blue were waved on. He stopped the game from flowing by being far too whistle-happy.

To think that Canvey had 6 yellow cards and one red and Wealdstone had none is amazing. That Canvey had 3 players go off injured following clashes and Wealdstone had none is astonishing. The stats probably show Canvey up as being a ‘dirty’ side but the truth is that the visitors were easily the more physical.

Congratulations to the team who, when down to 10 men, pulled everything out of the bag and fought for a very well deserved point.

The referee was a total joke. It was not a dirty game at all but the fact 6 of our players were booked, makes it look like we were very physical when it fact it was Wealdstone who were the far more physical side.

The tackle on Jay just before half time deserved at least a yellow but the ref didn't even stop the game for a foul. Ridicolous!!!!

Credit to the players for fighting back and earning a superb point.
