Declan Bourne to referee Forest Green home game

12 October 2021

Declan Bourne has been appointed as referee for the Iron's home game against Forest Green Rovers this Saturday.

The Nottinghamshire-based official will travel to the Sands Venue Stadium for the eighth game of his season and his third in Sky Bet League Two. The current campaign is his second as an EFL official having served for two years in the National League.

He's refereed one past match involving the Iron, which was the 4-1 loss to Morecambe back in April. He showed two yellow cards. Last season, he was the man in the middle for Forest Green's 2-1 away win at Carlisle, in which he showed five yellow cards.

So far this term, he's shown 30 yellow cards in seven games, while last season there were 86 yellow cards and two reds in 30 matches.

On Saturday, he will be assisted by Mark Jones and Simon Clayton, while Stephen Wade has been appointed as the fourth official.
