Ross Joyce to referee Hull City pre-season clash

23 July 2021

Ross Joyce will be the man in the middle for the Iron's home pre-season encounter against Hull City on Saturday.

The Cleveland-based official is preparing for his seventh campaign as an EFL referee, travelling to the Sands Venue Stadium for one of his warm-up matches.

He's taken charge of the Iron on nine competitive occasions in total, with the last coming last December when he oversaw the 2-0 home win over Leyton Orient. All five of the cautions on the day went to the away side. In the nine previous games, he's shown 31 yellow cards and no reds.

Meanwhile, he's refereed Hull City on just two previous occasions, both of which coming in the Papa John's Trophy last season. He's issued a total of four yellow cards and no reds across the two matches.

In 2018-19, he took charge of 44 games, including back-to-back visits to Wembley, taking charge of the FA Vase Final and the Sky Bet League Two Play-Off Final.

Last season, he issued 130 yellow cards and four reds in 32 games.

On Saturday, Joyce will be assisted by David Avent and Rob Atkin, while Ethan Nundy has been appointed as the fourth official.
