Bond to Referee Swans Bournemouth Game

Darren Bond has been appointed the referee for the visit of promotion chasing Bournemouth to the Swansea dot com stadium on Tuesday evening.

It will be the first time that Bond has officiated a Swans fixture this season and the Lancashire official will be assisted by Mark Pottage and Mark Russell, with Joshua Smith the 4th Official for the game.

This will only be the fourth Championship game that Bond has taken charge of this season, and his first game for both Swansea and Bournemouth.

His three Championship appearances to date have seen him hand out just 7 yellow cards – four of which were in the Cardiff City v Blackpool game this weekend.

Bond stole the headlines, after not awarding a seemingly blatant penalty for Seasiders winger Josh Bowler midway through the second half.
