RUFC - Ref Watch v Northampton



The man in charge of our first away game of the season is well known to Millers fans as it's ...



Trevor Kettle from Berkshire

What can we say about Mr Kettle?! He was in charge of our last ever game at Oakwell and what a game it ended up being thanks to a spot of inept refereeing by this man. It started well for the Millers and Shaun Barker put them in the lead just after the half-hour mark. On fifty-six minutes Deon Burton received a second yellow card after he was brought down by Steve Watt (I kid you not!) and ten minutes before the end Lee Williamson also saw red, for what, no one really knows, leaving the Millers down to nine men. Mick Harford was sent from the dugout by Mr Kettle and, in the fourth minute of three added on, Barnsley's Steve Watt got an equaliser, though whether the ball actually crossed the line is still debatable. Skipper, Colin Murdock went to have words with the referee at the final whistle and he too was shown a red card. Even the Barnsley players and fans were bemused by what was going on.

Trevor has been in charge of Millers games since, the last one being last season at the Kassam Stadium, in a late change. Scot Rendal put the home side ahead on the stroke of half-time with Asa Hall making it two-nil seven minutes after the start of the second half. A Lewis Grabban penalty on eighty-three minutes, after Adam Chapman hacked down Jason Taylor in the area, gave the Millers a life-line but it wasn't to be. Mr Kettle booked Mark Bradley and Alex Revell of the Millers plus two Oxford players that day.

Last season, Trevor was in charge of twenty-two games and gave out ninety-eight yellow cards and eight red cards.

In the one game he has been in charge of this season, the Capital One Cup game between Sheffield United and Burton Albion, Trevor showed five yellow cards and one red.

Running the line on Tuesday night will be
