Referee chosen for Sunday

Andy Madley will be the man in the middle at Wembley. He doesn't seem keen on issuing red cards which can determine the outcome of a game: Referee for play off final

Andrew Madley began his refereeing career on the local Wakefield leagues. He quickly advanced through the levels before becoming a Level 3A referee in 2008. This allowed him to act as an assistant referee on the three Football League divisions.

The following year he was promoted to the Panel List which allowed him to referee in the Conference divisions. He then progressed further the following year by becoming a Select Group Assistant Referee, officiating on the Premier League. In 2011, he progressed to his current role, a National List Referee, officiating in the three Football League divisions. Andrew is the older brother of former Select Group Referee Robert Madley.

He refereed two matches in the Premier League this season so clearly is being considered for that level, but almost all his matches were in the Championship. His day job is as a teacher.

Some time ago I planned a visit to see our middle daughter's new permanent home in Spain between the semi-finals and the final. I am told that the WiFi is good in the remote rural valley where their hacienda is located, but I will have to compete with a teenager chatting with her mates in the UK.

Lyle Taylor has been nominated for goal of the season on Sky Sports. When I voted he was second behind Chris Maguire (who he? ed): Watch and vote
