The officials have been announced for the forthcoming Carling Cup Final between Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur, with Chris Foy given the honour of taking charge of proceedings.

The Merseyside-born referee was appointed to the Select Group list in 2001 and was the Fourth Official for last season's FA Cup Final between Portsmouth and Cardiff City.

He will be assisted on the day by Peter Kirkup (Northamptonshire) and Andy Butler (Lancashire) while Andre Marriner (West Midlands) has been handed the role of Fourth Official.
