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
Dec 2016 v Scunthorpe (h), W 3-2
Sep 2017 v Doncaster (h), W 2-1
Jan 2018 v Lincoln (h, CT), L 0-1
Feb 2018 v Wigan (a), L 0-1
Aug 2018 v Middlesbrough (a, CC), L 1-2
Oct 2018 v Bradford (a), W 2-0
Apr 2019 v Southend (h), W 1-0
Aug 2019 v Shrewsbury (a), D 0-0
Sep 2020 v Huddersfield (a, CC), W 1-0

This will be Ben’s fourth match this season, with the previous three producing six yellow cards. His last game was Cambridge v Burton just over a week ago.
