RUFC - Ref Watch v Daggers
David began refereeing in 1999 and was promoted to the National List of Referee`s in 2006. In 2003 he was in charge of the Conference Play Off Final between Morecambe and Dagenham & Redbridge, which he has gone on record as saying is the best game he`s ever been involved in.
David visited Millmoor twice last season, the first in October when we beat Mansfield 3-2. We were three up with goals from Marcus Bean, Marc Newsham and Stephen Brogan with Town coming back to scare us with goals from Michael Boulding and Nathan Arnold in the final ten minutes or so. There were no yellow or red cards that game. He was also in charge of our loss in January to MK Dons when Mark Wright scored the winner with less than ten minutes to go. That day, David booked the Millers` Ian Sharps and Dons` Jemal Johnson.
This season, David has officiated at ten games and given out 19 yellow cards and 3 reds.
David will be helped at Don Valley on Saturday by
RT Hewitt from North Yorkshire
AJ Madley from West Yorkshire
The fourth official will be
SM Hutchinson from Nottingham
