Andy Woolmer is the referee who will take charge of Scunthorpe United’s home match against Fleetwood Town on Tuesday.

It’s the Iron’s second home game of the season and they will be looking to bounce back following the 4-0 defeat against Preston North End on Saturday.

The Northamptonshire based referee refereed the opening game of the season between Exeter and Portsmouth. He showed two yellow cards in the 1-1 draw at St James Park.

Woolmer’s last game in charge of the Iron was on New Years Day this year when he oversaw a 3-0 victory at home to Rochdale. Two goals from Sam Winnall and a Dave Syers goal won the match for Scunthorpe United and Rochdale finished the match with ten men after Woolmer dismissed Michael Rose in the 80th minute. As well as the red card, he also showed eight yellows with Christian Ribiero and Deon Burton the only two Iron players being booked.

Fleetwood also had a game officiated by Woolmer last season, in their 2-0 away loss at Southend United in October.

The 45-year-old referee also works as a postman and is in his 18th consecutive year refereeing in the Football League and has officiated in the 2003 Worthington Cup Final and the 2003 FA Community Shield, both as a linesman.

He will officiate at Glanford Park, where the Iron will be looking to get their first League victory of the 2014/2015 season.
