Referee Bio

Roger East joined the Select Group of officials in 2013 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.

East was in charge of Huddersfield Town's 2012 League One Play-off Final victory over Sheffield United at Wembley Stadium and in the following 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 2012.

After impressing during the 2012/13 season, East earned a permanent spot in the Select Group of officials from the 2013/14 season and has now accumulated over 50 Premier League matches as a referee.
