Assistant referees: David Benton and Mark Jones
Fourth Official Richard Bartlett

He’s been involved in quite a few controversial incidents in his career. He managed to annoy Exeter fans on the opening day of the 2011/12 season, when loanee Nicholas Bignall in a run towards goal (and the standing Exeter fans) was pulled down by a Stevenage defender within minutes of the start of the game, but Ward was unable to make a decision that early in a game. ref_Gavin_ward_thumb
