RUFC - Ref Watch v Wycombe
Dave started reffing in 1981, when he was still playing, and progressed through the West Sussex League, Sussex County League and Southern League. In 2003 he got a double promotion onto the Panel League as Referee and Football League as Assistant Referee and five years later was promoted to the National List of Referees, which he says is one of the highlights of his career along with getting his Three Lions at the 2008 FA Youth Cup Final.
The last time Dave was in charge of a Millers game was in April 2009 at the Recreation Ground when a Reuben Reid goal in eleven minutes was enough for Rotherham to beat Aldershot and get all three points. That day there were bookings for Anthony Charles, Richard Newman and Anthony Straker from the home side and Millers Drewe Broughton and Ian Sharps.
So far this season Dave has been in charge of eighteen games, shown fifty nine yellow cards and four red cards.
