RUFC - Ref Watch v Crewe
Christopher was appointed to the National League of Referees in 2008 and his first ever league game was on 16 August that year which saw the Millers travel to Morecambe. Mark Lynch gave the Millers a nine minute lead with Ryan Taylor doubling that five minutes before half-time. Neil Wainwright of Morecambe pulled one back for the home side on seventy-seven minutes but Mark Lynch made sure of a Millers victory in the final minute of the game which gave the Millers minus eleven points in the league. That day, Christopher booked Lynch and Reuben Reid of the Millers.
Millers team that day
Christopher has already been in the middle for two Rotherham games this season. The first was a one-all draw with Shrewsbury at Don Valley in October where Lewis Grabban opened the scoring to put the Millers one-up on twenty-two minutes but Shane Cansdell-Sherriff equalised on the stroke of half-time. He was also in the middle when the Millers visited Edgar Street in December and got all three points thanks to a brace from Johnny Mullins. Mullins put the Millers one up on thirteen minutes and Alex Revell made it two ten minutes later. Yoann Arquin and former Miller Delroy Facey equalised for Hereford before half-time but on sixty-five minutes a Sam Wood corner found Mullins who buried his shot into the back of the net to give the Millers all three points.
Christopher has been in the middle for twenty-five games this season showing sixty-five yellow cards and five red.
