RUFC - Ref Watch v Stevenage
Gavin joined the list of Assistant Referees at the start of the 2002/3 season, progressing to the National List of Referees in 2007, when he officiated in the Euro 2008 qualifying game between Denmark and Liechtenstein in the September.
The first time he was in charge of the Millers was in December 2007, at Millmoor, where he sent off Matty Crowell of Wrexham on fourteen minutes for a two footed lunge at Millers loanee, Ian Ross. Five minutes before half time Derek Holmes put the home side in front, getting a second on seventy-two minutes. Marc Newsham pitched in with a third ten minutes from time to give the Millers a well deserved victory. That day Gavin booked Ian Sharps of the Millers and Wrexham`s Steve Evans and Chris Llewellyn.
Gavin recently upset former Millers` boss, Mark Robins, when he abandoned Barnsley`s game at Plymouth after fifty-eight minutes due to torrential downpours, with the visitors four-one up.
So far this season, Gavin has been in charge of nineteen games, showing forty-nine yellow cards and two red cards.
