Consett Referee Dropped Over Ed Sheeran Gig
Consett-born Premier League referee Mark Clattenburg has been dropped for this weekend's Premier League fixtures after breaking protocol so he could watch an Ed Sheeran concert.
It's claimed Clattenburg drove home alone after officiating West Brom's home game against Crystal Palace so he could get back to Newcastle to watch Sheeran perform at the Arena.
