RUFC - Ref Watch v Torquay

RUFC - Ref Watch v Torquay
Trevor Kettle from Rutland

Mr Kettle will be no stranger to most Millers - having brandished his red card to three Rotherham players the last time they visited Oakwell. The game was just over five years ago and, without some baffling decisions by the referee from Rutland, the Millers could well have won the game. The game wasn't a dirty game and the Millers were well on top when Shaun Barker scored just after the half-hour mark. Ten minutes into the second half, Deon Burton went racing through and appeared to be brought down by Barnsley defender Steven Watt. Mr Kettle took out his red card, and to the amazement of everyone, including Barnsley fans, he showed it to Burton! Millers Manager, Mick Harford, spoke out of turn and was immediately banished to watch the rest of the game from the stands. With the game quite even Mr Kettle stuck again on eighty-five minutes when an innocuous challenge by Lee Williamson saw another red card shown. The Millers thought they'd only five minutes to hold onto the lead and battled well with Neil Cutler pulling off a great save only to be outdone by another poor decision on ninety five minutes when a Barnsley corner fell to Watt and he hit the ball towards goal only for a Millers defender to scramble it away. So, imagine the anger and surprise when Mr Kettle gave a goal! Blowing the whistle a minute later the referee was immediately surrounded by Millers players resulting in Colin Murdoch being shown the third red card of the day.

The last time Mr Kettle was in charge of a Millers game was last season against Crewe at Gresty Road with the Millers winning the game 3-2. Steven Schumacher put the home side ahead on six minutes and Kevin Ellison equalised nine minutes later. On fifty-one minutes, Calvin Zola regained the lead only for Adam Le Fondre to equalise again from the penalty spot. Five minutes before full-time Drewe Broughton, on for Tom Pope, got the winner for the visitors.

So far this season Mr Kettle has been in charge of fourteen games, giving out forty-eight yellow cards and four red cards
