The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Final against Oxford United in April.

Barnsley make the trip to Wembley Stadium to face off against Oxford United on Sunday April 3 and the game carries a 2.30pm kick off time.

The match will be screened live by Sky Sports and highlights later on the day will follow on Channel 5.

This will be the 33rd Football League Trophy Final.

Referee: Andy Woolmer
Linesmen: Gary Hilton and Steve Rushton
Fourth Official: Phil Gibbs
Reserve Assistant Referee: Ravel Cheosiaua

This will be Woolmer’s first Wembley appearance having begun as a domestic match official back in 2003.

His first game as referee came in August of that year in the game between Stevenage and Dagenham and Redbridge – who were at the time in the Conference.

His Football League debut came a year later in the League Two fixture between Kidderminster and Notts County.

His Championship debut came at Gresty Road where Crewe hosted Preston in January 2005.

Woolmer has, so far this season in 2015-16, taken in 26 matches to date with 77 yellow cards and two red cards shown.

The Northamptonshire born referee has officiated one Barnsley game this year, and that was the three one loss to Chesterfield on August 8.
