Linington To Take Charge
James Linington will officiate Blackpool’s season opener at Colchester United on Saturday.
The Newport-based referee took charge of 38 matches last season, dishing out 107 yellow cards and 10 reds.
Linington’s last Blackpool match was back in April, when The Seasiders were beaten 3-2 at Ipswich Town.
His only Colchester United fixture last season came in the FA Cup, as Cardiff City beat The Us 3-1 in the third round.
On Saturday he will be assisted by Richard Kendall and Michael Webb, while Gavin Muge will be the fourth official.
