Wolves vs Brentford kicks off at 12.30 this Saturday in the Premier League - and the game will be officiated by Darren England.

Here are the match officials in full for the fixture. 

Referee: Graham Scott

This is Doncaster-born referee Darren England’s second season in the top flight, following his promotion to the Select Group 1 last summer. 

England refereed the League Two Play-Off Final in 2017 between Blackpool and Exeter City and made 69 appearances as a Premier League assistant referee between 2012 and 2015.

Assistants: Harry Lennard, Peter Kirkup

By the end of the 2020/21 season, Sussex-based Harry Lennard reached the milestone of having been linesman for 250 Premier League matches. He first ran the line in the Football League in 2009 and has been involved in three Europa League games. 

A veteran of the Premier League, Peter Kirkup first officiated in the league in 2008. He has since been assistant referee for 27 Champions League and went to Euro 2012 before retiring from international duty as a linesman. 

Fourth Official: David Coote

David Coote started refereeing as a 16-year-old, in the Notts Alliance League, the Northern Counties East Football League, the Northern Premier League and the Conference North before being promoted to the Football League. 

Coote was promoted as a Football League referee in 2010 and was the video assistant referee in the Merseyside Derby who controversially recommended that Jordan Pickford remain on the field after injuring Virgil van Dijk after the linesman had blown for offside. 

VAR: Stuart Attwell

Nuneaton-born Stuart Attwell has been refereeing in the Football League since 2007. Attwell was promoted to the Select Group of referees for the 2008/09 season, making him eligible to referee in the Premier League - but was later dropped in 2012 and returned to Football League duty, with Professional Game Match Officials Limited general manager Mike Riley backing him to improve. 

Attwell returned to officiating in the Premier League in 2014 and was promoted once more to the Select Group Referees list in March 2016. 

Assistant VAR: Stuart Burt

Stuart Burt was assistant referee for three games of Euro 2020 and the FA Cup final 2021. The Northamptonshire linesman officiated 34 Premier League 2020/21 games and was the assistant referee for the 2021 and 2012 FA Cup finals.
