Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) has announced that two new referees, Tim Robinson and Darren Bond, have been promoted to Select Group 1 and will officiate in the Premier League next season.

Robinson (above left) took charge of his first Premier League match in December 2019, Burnley v Newcastle United. The Sussex FA-affiliated official had been an assistant referee in the EFL between 2009 and 2012 before becoming an EFL referee. He refereed two Premier League matches last season.

Bond (above right) made his debut as a Premier League referee in January this year, for Leicester City v Fulham, the first of four matches in the competition he has taken charge of.

Like Robinson, Bond, who is affiliated to the Lancashire FA, ran the line in the EFL until 2012, before becoming an EFL referee as well as an assistant referee in the Premier League.

The 2023/24 Premier League season will resume on the weekend commencing 12 August.
