The Select Group 2 Officials for the 2020/21 season have been confirmed, with ten new faces added to the listings.

Leigh Doughty, Michael Salisbury and Josh Smith will be joining the pool of referees for the upcoming campaign, whilst there are a further seven promotions to the Select Group 2 Assistant Referee list.

Doughty was appointed an EFL referee in 2019, before officiating in the 2019/20 League Two Play-Off Finals, and also as acting Fourth Official for the Play-Off Final between Exeter City and Northampton.

Similarly, Salisbury was appointed as the referee for that particular game, the first competitive fixture at Wembley Stadium following the outbreak of COVID-19.

Smith, following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather, also has considerable experience, including refereeing the League Two Play-Off Semi Final between Colchester United and Exeter City in 2020.
