Mark Halsey ready for return to Premier League

Mark Halsey is back to full fitness and eagerly awaiting his next Premier League appointment — a year after fearing for his life.

The 49-year-old referee is in remission after battling throat cancer and will find out on Monday if he will officiate on the opening weekend of the Premier League season.

He said: “I didn't think I'd referee a football match again — I was wondering if I was going to live.”
