RUFC - Ref Watch v the Cobblers

RUFC - Ref Watch v the Cobblers
Rob Lewis from Shropshire

Rob is quite infamous as the assistant who didn't see Roy Carroll retrieve the ball from a good yard over the line after a shot from Spurs' Pedro Mendes had been fumbled by the 'keeper.

Rob actually worked his way up to be a League referee some years ago and officiated at nearly fifty games before a lengthy injury cost him his place on the National List.

After running the line in the Premiership and refereeing in the Conference he was added again to the list for the start of last season and, ironically, he was in charge of our game last year at Don Valley against Saturday's opponents, Northampton Town.

The Millers went into the lead on four minutes from a Ryan Taylor goal and fifteen minutes later Marcus Marshall put doubled the lead. Then, in the twenty-third and twenty-fourth minutes Abdul Osman and Andy Holt got the visitor's level which was the end of the goal scoring. Booked that day were Jamie Annerson, Kevin Ellison and Mark Bradley from the Millers and Marcus Hall and Dean Beckwith of the Cobblers.

This season Rob has been in the middle for nine games and has given out twenty-five yellow and two red cards.

Running the line on Saturday will be

Rob Hyde from London
and
Carl Fitch from Suffolk

The Fourth Official will be

Geoffrey Russell from Northampton
