RUFC - Ref Watch v Stevenage

Eddie Ilderton from Tyne and Wear

After having his playing career curtailed due to injury, Eddie was encouraged by his father to become a referee and he began refereeing in the Northern Alliance and Northern Leagues. Eddie has been on the National List of Referees since 2002 and in 2003 he was in the middle for the UEFA Regions' Cup Final and also an FA Trophy semi-final.

The last game Eddie was in charge of a Millers game was at the end of March. Hereford were the visitors to Don Valley when a goal just before half-time from Lewis Grabban was enough to give the Millers all three points. Eddie booked just one player in that match who was Danny Schofield from the Millers.

The Millers also won the game the season before when Eddie was in charge at Moss Rose when goals from Jason Taylor and Nick Fenton gave the Millers a win against Macclesfield and that day he booked Dale Tonge and Marcus Marshall.

The last time Eddie was in charge of a game we lost in was at Edgar Street when Hereford beat the Millers three-nil in May 2010 and he was also in the middle for our five-one loss to Morecambe at Christie Park in March 2008 with Mark Hudson getting the consolation goal for Rotherham.

He will probably best be remembered for the game he refereed at Millmoor in February 2007 against Huddersfield. Luke Beckett put the visitors ahead on three minutes but Chris O'Grady equalised from the penalty spot on the half-hour mark after Andy Holdsworth had hand-balled in the area for which he saw red. A minute into the second half Beckett put Huddersfield in front again and Michael Collins made it three for the visitors thirteen minutes later. Rotherham's substitute Delroy Facey, on for David Worrell) made it three-two and with the Millers going all out for a win the referee equaled things up by giving Ian Henderson a second yellow card after he lunged at Danny Schofield.

This season Eddie has been in charge of eleven games and has shown thirty-five yellow cards and one red.
