Scott Oldham is the man in the middle for Dale’s Carabao Cup tie at Shrewsbury on Tuesday.

The self-employed joiner from Poulton-le-Fylde, who is in his fifth campaign on the National List, has been a regular fixture at our games since 2017 and last season refereed Dale three times.

In October, he was in charge of our 2-1 defeat at Accrington, while a month later, Scott refereed the depressing 1-0 home loss to Stockport in the FA Cup.

Mr Oldham was then back at Spotland in April for the return fixture against Accrington, which Dale won 3-1.

Scott’s first-ever Dale appointment came in October 2017 when he oversaw our 1-0 home win over Bristol Rovers, although on that occasion he was a late replacement for Tom Nield.

He returned to Spotland in March 2018 for the 1-1 draw with AFC Wimbledon and then three weeks later, he was an 11th hour replacement for Andy Haines in Dale’s thrilling, but ultimately frustrating 3-3 draw with Portsmouth.

Mr Oldham appeared at Spotland again in October 2018 for the 3-2 home loss to Doncaster, before taking charge at Walsall four months later where both Ethans – Ebanks-Landell and Hamilton – were on target in Dale’s 2-1 defeat of The Saddlers.

Finally, in November 2019, Scott was in the middle when Ipswich won 1-0 at Spotland on their first-ever visit to this part of Lancashire.

This will be Mr Oldham’s fifth game of the season. He was due at Mansfield v Bradford on Saturday and his three previous appointments had produced five yellow cards.
