RUFC - Ref Watch v Gillingham

RUFC - Ref Watch v Gillingham
Andy Woolmer from Northamptonshire

Andy has been on the National List of Referees since 2004 after coming through the UCL and Southern League to get there. He was an assistant for ten years, including three in the Premier League, and his major appointments include the FLT Final, FL Cup Final and the Community Shield.

His last game in charge of the Millers was the Friday night game at the Memorial Stadium when the score ended five-two to Bristol Rovers. The Millers started the livelier that night but it was Rovers who scored the first goal on ten minutes from Scott McGleish and he added a second nineteen minutes later from the penalty spot after Johnny Mullins had challenged Scott Rendell in the area. Three minutes later the Gasmen went three up when a free-kick found Cian Bolger, who unchallenged, headed past Andy Warrington into the net. Danny Schofield made it three-two seven minutes into the second half but just five minutes later, Guy Branston, who had returned to the Millers on loan that morning, was shown a red card for a two-footed tackle on Stuart Campbell and the Lee Brown scored from the resulting free-kick. Rovers did get their fifth goal in the final three minutes of the game when Joe Anyinsah, on for McGleish, put in an angled shot that dipped and went over Warrington`s head and into the goal, breaking the net. Mr Woolmer showed yellow cards to Michael Raynes, Jon Harley and Lewis Grabban that night.

The first time Andy was in charge of a Millers game was in October 2005 at the National Hockey Stadium when the Millers drew with MK Dons one-all. The game was a scrappy affair and Andy Monkhouse put the Millers in front on twenty-four minutes which started with a Shaun Barker long throw. Ten minutes from time Malvin Kamara got the Dons' equaliser. There were five bookings that day - Pablo Mills and Dean Lewington from the home side and Paul McLaren, John Mullin and Monkhouse from the Millers.
