Really pleased for Bobby Madley in particular. A reward for sticking at it!! It would have been easy for him to have packed it in all together but his hunger must still be there to start from the National list again. He was very good in the Oxford game and like Iíve said before if I was a Championship manager I would much rather him referee my fixtures than most of the SG2 list.

Harrington has certainly gone under my radar somewhat which, I should add, is generally a most commendable thing. If SG1 take 2 promotions then he and Gillett are the candidates with Madley and Hicks going up to SG2.

It seems that Robinson has possibly had his chance for promotion and it hasn't gone his way.

Maybe the accepted view is that Gillett did enough on Saturday and Harrington needs another "test" to confirm (or otherwise) his promotion credentials?

No issue with Mr Madley getting the L2 final and I hope he and team do well. However, if he was pencilled in for this final, would have been better to give someone else a chance in the L1 semi, by promoting the best of the L2 quartet to the L1 game and giving someone (the 9th ranked?) one of the L2 semis. It's hardly as though Mr Madley needs the bigger match experience...

That did cross my mind however I wonder whether it is because there was an extra week between the play offs this time compared to usual. Therefore that would have meant Madley would have refereed on the last day of the season on 7th May and wouldnít have refereed again until the final on the 31st. Thatís quite a big time with no game so maybe it was to make sure he kept his match sharpness with a game in between?

Makes perfect sense for referees that have done the semis to be appointed to the finals, given the time lapse
Since the end of the efl season.
