Andre Marriner has been appointed as the match referee for the EFL Cup Final between Manchester United and Southampton.

The 46-year-old will be assisted at Wembley Stadium on 26th February by Richard West and Stuart Burt.

Kevin Friend has been appointed as fourth official, while Matthew Wilkes is the reserve assistant referee.

Marriner, a member of the Birmingham County Football Association, has been an EFL official since 2000.

He was given his first Premier League appointment in 2004 and was awarded a place on the FIFA panel in 2009.

His previous honours include the FA Youth Cup Final, the FA Community Shield, the Championship Play-Off Final and, most recently, the FA Cup Final.

Marriner featured in the Quarter-Final stage of this year's EFL Cup, taking charge of Liverpool versus Leeds United, before his appointment to the Final.
