TWO Suffolk officials are celebrating high-profile promotions.
George Byrne and Carl Fitch-Jackson have been promoted to the Select Group 2 list of assistant referees on the EFL Championship.
Both officials finished last season by being involved in the League 2 Play-offs.
George, who is 28 and lives near Mildenhall, was an assistant referee for the final at Wembley Stadium between Northampton Town and Exeter City.
Thirty-four-year-old Carl, who lives in Ipswich, was an assistant referee in the semi-final first leg between Northampton Town and Cheltenham Town.
Suffolk FA Senior Referee Development Officer Alan Dale said: “George and Carl have both been promoted following excellent seasons on the Football League.
“This is a tremendous achievement and we wish them both well once the season starts again.”
