Madley was sacked by Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) in 2018 after sending a video mocking a disabled person to a friend. Following discussions with PGMOL, Madley will return as an official at League One and League Two level from the start of next season.
He has also agreed to attend an FA discrimination workshop and will work in grassroots football for the remainder of the current campaign.

In a blog post, Madley wrote: "Eighteen months ago I lost my dream job as a professional football referee due my own regrettable, naive and stupid actions. I am delighted however that I have been given the opportunity to return to referee in the professional game in England.
Madley took charge of 91 top-flight matches between 2013 and 2018 until he was sacked. Following his dismissal, he moved to Norway where he refereed in the lower leagues.
