Who’s grazing on the Priestfield turf this afternoon?

Well, it’s the league’s most senior match official, Paul Taylor of Hertfordshire. He’s been given special dispensation to carry on in the role until his 50th birthday this June despite that surpassing the ‘official’ retirement age of 48.

Taylor hasn’t been involved in a Bradford City fixture for a while. The last time he officiated was a 0-0 draw at Huish Park when the Bantams visited Yeovil and before that it had been games in the Championship. And that tells you all you need to know about how long since that has been!

So far this season Taylor has issued 85 yellow cards and 7 reds in matches that have predominantly been at a higher level than League Two. Hopefully his pedigree results in a competent performance on the pitch!

If, come full time you feel that hasn’t happened then give us a shout! We always want to hear from you and this website is for you to air your opinions, not just mine!
