RUFC - Ref Watch v The Cobblers
Carl started his career in the Hull Sunday League before being promoted to the National List of Assistant Referees, via the Northern Premier League in 1996. In 2002 he reached the National List of Referees.
The last game Carl was in charge of involving the Millers was the rather explosive game at the County Ground in September, which was played live in front of the TV cameras. Making his league debut, Alex Revell put the Millers in front with a fantastic header on twenty-one minutes only for Matt Ritchie to equalise eighteen minutes later for Swindon Town. On sixty-five minutes Revell was there again to gain the lead for the Millers with another header. The Millers` jubilation at re-taking the lead was short-lived however when Schofield was shown a second yellow for a foul on Kerrouche and from the resulting free-kick the home side got a corner which Alan Connell headed home with his first touch of the game. Ten minutes from time Connell put the home side in front for the first time. With five minutes to go, Swindon went down to ten men when Alberto Comazzi was shown a second yellow card.
The last time Carl was at Don Valley was in the nil-nil draw with Hereford in April last year.
This season Carl has been in charge of thirty-six games, showing ninety-six yellow cards and eleven red cards.
