MAN IN THE MIDDLE | John Brooks

7 May 2021

John Brooks will be the man in the middle when Newport County AFC travel to Southend United for the final fixture of the campaign.

The Leicestershire-born official has taken charge of five County games, overseeing four draws and one defeat for the Exiles.

He most recently oversaw County's Carabao Cup fourth-round clash against Newcastle United, which ended in a penalty shootout victory for the Premier League side.

During the 2020-21 season, Brooks has produced 101 yellow and five red cards across 30 games.

Brooks, who is now in his fifth year as an EFL referee, will be assisted by Nick Greenhalgh and Akil Howson, while Declan Bourne will be the fourth official.
