Howard Webb swaps shirts after being bitten by midges (Newcastle vs Arsenal)

Posted by - May 20, 2013 - Arsenal, Kitman, Newcastle United

Referee Howard Webb and his team of officials swapped shirts at half-time during yesterday’s match between Newcastle and Arsenal amid fears that their yellow jerseys were irresistible to Tyneside’s insect life.

After being bitten by midges in the first-half, Webb and his assistants swapped to green shirts at half-time.

Any midge found to be involved can expect a 10-match ban from the FA.

And for those of you who think that only Manchester United swap shirts at half-time, well… you know… generic Webb is a United player joke.
