Roger East is one of the Premier League’s most recent recruits after a successful spell as a Football League referee.
The Wiltshire FA official, who has been on the National list since 2006, was an assistant referee at the 2004 FA Cup Final and 2006 FA Community Shield before stepping into the middle for the 2006/07 campaign.
Most recently, he was in charge of Huddersfield Town's 2012 League One Play-off Final victory over Sheffield United at Wembley Stadium. In the 2012/13 campaign, he oversaw his first Premier League match, when Swansea City and Sunderland battled out a 2-2 draw at the Liberty Stadium in September.
East isn’t a Select Group referee for the Premier League yet, but he will be bidding for a permanent promotion to the top tier if he can impress during the 2012/13 season.
