RUFC - Ref Watch v Cheltenham

Oli Langford from the West Midlands

Oliver Langford has his father to thank for him becoming a Ref. When Oliver was playing in a youth side, he had a go at the man refereeing them and afterwards his dad told him off and said that he should try it. Well he did and was an Assistant Referee for three years before progressing to the Referee`s List in 2008.

Oli was last in charge of the Millers at Don Valley in April against Gillingham when Rotherham lost out to a seventy-ninth minute goal from Andy Barcham. He was also in charge of our game the season before at Sixfields where Ryan Gilligan put the home side in front on ten minutes followed by two goals in the second half (Courtney Herbert and an Ian Sharps own goal) with Adam Le Fondre getting a consolation goal ten minutes from the end from the penalty spot.

The first time Oli was in the middle for a Millers game was at Gigg Lane in October 2008. Reuben Reid put the Millers in front on two minutes followed by a Drewe Broughton goal nine minutes later. On the half-hour mark, Paul Scott scored for the home team but the Millers hung on for all three points. Pablo Mills and Richie Barker were booked.

So far this season, Oli has been in charge of twenty games and has shown fifty-two yellow and five red cards
