RUFC - Ref Watch v Port Vale

RUFC - Ref Watch v Port Vale
Mick Russell from Hertfordshire

Mick began refereeing in the 1990's and worked his way up through the South Midlands League reaching the National list of Assistant Referees in 2000. He was promoted to the Referees' list four years later. Mick is also a licensed FA Coach.

The last time Mick was in charge of a Millers game was in November 2009 at Don Valley. The visitors that day were Lincoln City and a goal in each half from Adam Le Fondre gave the Millers all three points.

In March 2009 Mick was at Spotland to see the Millers take on Rochdale. Reuben Reid and Ryan Taylor scored for the Millers with Adam Le Fondre getting on the score sheet - but that time it was a consolation goal for the home side.

Mick was also in charge of our game at London Road in January 2008. Charlie Lee put the Posh ahead on twenty-two minutes with Aaron McLean doubling the lead ten minutes from time. On ninety minutes Ryan Taylor got a consolation goal for the Millers with Craig Mackail-Smith scoring a third for the home side six minutes into time added on.

The first time Mick was in charge of a Millers game was the last game of the 2006/7 season when Bristol City gained promotion helped by a three-one win over Rotherham. A certain David Noble scored two goals in the first half for City with Alex Russell making it three-nil ten minutes into the second half. Marc Newsham scored a consolation goal on fifty-eight minutes for the already relegated Millers.
