RUFC - Ref Watch v Shots
Fred began his refereeing in his local leagues in 1988 and progressed to the National List of Referees in 2004 where he stayed for just one season before returning to the list of Panel Referees. He kept going and was promoted again in 2006, which he lists as being one of the highlights of his career.
This will be Fred's first visit to Don Valley although he has reffed the Millers before, at Meadow Lane in 2007. The Millers won that game 1-0 with a goal from Marc Joseph on thirty-four minutes.
In the thirty games he has been in charge of this season, Fred has given out seventy-six yellow cards and seven red cards.
