Refwatch: Rochdale v Liverpool U21's (Papa John's Trophy)
Monday, 30th Aug 2021 18:00 by TVOS
Ben Toner will referee Dale’s first game in the Papa John’s Trophy when they host Liverpool U21 on Tuesday night.
The Darwen official has been a regular at our matches since he joined the National List in 2015, the most recent of which was the 1-0 win at Huddersfield in the Carabao Cup at the start of last season.
A science teacher at Fleetwood High School, Ben’s first Dale game was at Shrewsbury in March 2016, where we lost 2-0 after a disappointing display.
In 2018/19 we saw Mr Toner three times, including the final home match of the campaign when Dale defeated Southend 1-0 to confirm their League One status.
He was also the man in the middle for the 2-1 Carabao Cup loss at Middlesbrough early in that season.
Ben’s most dramatic Dale appointment came in September 2017 when two injury time goals helped us to a thrilling 2-1 home win over Doncaster.
All told, Toner has refereed ten previous Dale games:
Mar 2016 v Shrewsbury (a), L 0-2
