Man In The Middle

Man In The Middle

Experienced referee Phil Joslin will be the man in black for Saturday's home game against Millwall.

Joslin has been a Football League referee for 8 years and is no stranger to refereeing Alex games. He's been referee for one Crewe game of each of the last five seasons, starting the trend in 02/03 when he refereed a rather drab 0-0 affair at home to Chesterfield.

Last season he refereed the away trip to Tranmere Rovers, where Gareth Taylor got the only goal for Tranmere. That day he booked Nicky Maynard and Gary Roberts, both for 'unsporting behaviour'.

He's also been referee for Millwall games on five occasions, including twice last season. Milwall fans may remember him for sending off Tim Cahill in the dying moments of a 2-1 win over Coventry in 2003/2004 for two bookable offences.

Last season, Joslin averaged nearly 4 yellow cards per game and handed out six red cards.

He will be assisted on Saturday by D Mohareb and N Smith, the fourth official will be R Merchant.
