Remember that last minute goal by George Dobson last season which all but confirmed our League 1 safety for another season?

Yes we vaguely remember it too….the referee for that game was Mr Sebastian Stockbridge.

We can confirm that he has been named as the official to take charge of our game with Shrewsbury this Saturday.

Confirmed match officials


Assistants: Wayne Grunnill and Hristo Karaivanov

Fourth Official : Gary Hilton

Stockbridge has officiated thirty-five games this season, dishing out one-hundred and six yellow cards and three reds, he has also awarded six penalties this season.

If we needed a lucky omen for Saturday then we have just had it.

I dont think my heart could take another last minute goal mind.

The Saddlers need to win – should we do so then we will require two of the following

  • Southend United to draw/lose at home to Sunderland
  • Plymouth Argyle to draw/lose at home to Scunthorpe United
  • AFC Wimbledon to lose away to Bradford City
