The FA have announced the officials set to take charge this weekend.
Mark Haywood will be the man in the middle of Port Vale’s FA Cup First Round clash with Stevenage at Vale Park.
Haywood has officiated in seven League One games and three League Two games, giving a total of 38 yellow cards and two red cards so far this campaign.
It will be the second Port Vale fixture Haywood has officiated in this season since he took charge of Vale’s 2-1 defeat against Carlisle in the EFL Cup earlier in the season.
He will be assisted by Nigel Smith and Mark Griffiths, while Richard Bartlett will act as fourth official.
