Keith Stroud has been chosen as the man in the middleHampshire based official Keith Stroud will referee the Fylde Coast derby between Fleetwood Town and Blackpool on Saturday.
Stroud has never officiated a Cod Army fixture so his visit to Highbury this weekend will be the first of his career.
The experienced official has taken charge of a total of 42 games in all competitions so far this season, and has shown 183 yellow cards and 11 reds.
The last time he was the man in the middle for a Tangerines clash was last season, when they were beaten 3-1 at home to Wigan Athletic in February.
He will be assisted on the day by James Mainwaring and Thomas Bramall, while Anthony Tankard has been named as the fourth official.
