RUFC - Ref Watch v Crawley

RUFC - Ref Watch v Crawley
Andy Haines from Tyne and Wear

Andy started refereeing in London in 1995. After two seasons as a Panel referee Andy was promoted to the National List of Referees in 2007.

This will be Andy's second game at Don Valley already this season, the first one being last month when Burton Albion were the visitors. The Millers got off to the worst possible start in this game when Jimmy Phillips went by the Millers' defence like it wasn't there, got the ball to Cleveland Taylor who's shot deflected off Tom Newey, fell to a blatantly off-side Justin Richards who tapped it into the back of the net. The Millers never seem to get over this and the game ended one-nil to the Brewers. Andy Haines booked Danny Harrison of the Millers that day plus three Burton players.

Andy has been to Don Valley on several other occasions - in September last year when an Adam Le Fondre goal eight minutes into the second half was enough to give the Millers all three points against local rivals Chesterfield.; when Bradford were the visitors in March 2010 Michael Flynn opened the scoring for the visitors on the hour mark. The Millers got a penalty on the ninetieth minute after Flynn had handled the ball and Adam Le Fondre scored an equaliser from the spot only for James Hanson to get another for City four minutes into time added on.

Andy was also in charge of the very first game at Don Valley when the Millers beat Lincoln City with a Reuben Reid goal a minute before half-time.

This season Andy has been in charge of seventeen games, showing forty-five yellow cards and two red cards.

Running the line on Saturday will be

Michael Denton from Lancashire
and
Alf Greenwood from North Yorkshire

The Fourth Official will be

Ian Dudley from Nottinghamshire
