RUFC - Ref Watch v York City
David was promoted to the National List of Referees in 2008 and was last in charge of the Millers for their penultimate game at Don Valley in April last year. Lewis Grabban opened the scoring on twenty-one minutes with Jordan Burrows equalising eighteen minutes later. Three minutes into the second half the Millers went back in front with a goal from Jason Taylor but when Ryan Cresswell toppled Danny Carlton and received his second yellow card of the game the Shrimps equalised again when Jack Redshaw scored from the resulting penalty. With it looking like the Millers wouldn't get the win they deserved up popped Grabban to get his second and the Millers third in the final minute of the game.
The first time David was in charge of a Millers game was his second League game of his career. Chester City were the visitors at Don Valley and with the Millers needing as many points as possible to get to nil, after starting on minus points, it was Ian Sharps who opened the scoring on just two minutes. Reuben Reid made it two-nil on fourteen minutes but they were pegged back to two-one four minutes later when Kevin Ellison, then with City, pulled one back for the Blues. On twenty-seven minutes Alex Rhodes made it three-one and that's how it stopped and brought the Millers to minus-eight points.
This season David have been in the middle for seven games and has shown twenty-one yellow cards.
