RFC - Ref Watch v Accrington
Chris has been on the National List of Referee since 2008 with his first game being Morecambe v Rotherham in the August at Christie Park. Mark Lynch and Ryan Taylor put the Millers two-up before half-time with Neil Wainwright halving the deficit for the Shrimps on seventy-seven minutes. A second goal from Lynch on the stroke of full-time gave the Millers all three points.
Chris has been in the middle for a few more Millers games including the six-nil win over Lincoln in March 2011 when Ian Thomas-Moore score a hat-trick in the first game after his father had been sacked as Rotherham Manager. The last time Chris was in charge of a Millers game was last season at Don Valley when a clumsy challenge from Jason Taylor on Byron Moore resulted in a penalty which Harry Davis put away on sixteen minutes but an equaliser on sixty-two minutes from Lewis Grabban gave the Millers a point.
Chris has been in the middle for seven games so far this season and has shown twenty yellow cards and two reds
