Trevor Kettle will referee Saturday's FA Cup first-round tie between Bolton and Grimsby Town at Macron Stadium.

Wanderers go into the game, their first at this stage since 1993, on the back of a 3-1 victory over Port Vale last Saturday, while Grimsby held Yeovil Town to a goalless draw at Huish Park.

Kettle, who will take charge of the game, has officiated nine matches so far this season - issuing 39 yellow cards and two red.

His most recent outing was on October 22, when he was the man in the middle for Northampton Town's 4-2 win at Shrewsbury Town in League One. The Rutland official produced six yellow cards in that game, as well as pointing to the penalty spot on two separate occasions.

Kettle's last match in charge of Bolton was on September 17, when they were beaten 1-0 by Walsall at the Banks's Stadium. Five cautions were issued that afternoon, four of which were handed to Wanderers players, while each side also had a man sent off - with Keshi Anderson seeing red for the visitors.

The last time he refereed a Grimsby fixture was in January 2010, as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Bury in a League Two encounter at Blundell Park. Three players entered the book that day, including Town defender Paul Linwood.

Below is the full set of officials for Saturday's game between Bolton and Grimsby Town:

Referee: Trevor Kettle
Assistant Referees: Andrew Hendley and Matthew Parry
Fourth Official: Joe Simpson
