Games involving Hibs

Gavin Duncan has never refereed a match involving Hibernian.

Incidents of note

With little or no experience to speak about Mr. Duncan, in 2012 sent a deaf 24-year-old footballer off after he celebrated an offside goal because he couldn’t hear the whistle.

Initial incident

Unable to hear Gavin Duncan’s instructions the deaf lad continued playing and was given a caution for ignoring his signal.

Second incident

The same player was given a second yellow card for allegedly diving moments later. And we know what happens when two yellow cards are given in the same game.

Following a red, the chap ended up serving an automatic two-match ban.

Bit harsh wouldn’t you say?

Climbing up the ranks

Friday 7 September 2018, Duncan was allowed to be the fourth official for the UEFA Under-21 Championship Group 6 qualifier between Sweden and Hungary.
