'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC - Ref Watch v Fleetwood



Chris Foy from Merseyside

The Millers have a high profile referee in charge of their first ever game at Highbury Stadium on Tuesday night to take on Fleetwood Town.

Chris began refereeing in 1983 and was promoted to to the List of Football League Assistant Referees in 1994. Two years later he became a Football League Referee and stepped up to be a Premier League referee in 2001. He became a FIFA listed referee in 2002 and has twice been the fourth official at International games - firstly in 2002 when England lost to Italy in a friendly at Elland Road and then again in 2006 when England beat Hungry at Old Trafford.

The last time Chris was in charge of a Millers game was in August 2005 at Millmoor when Bradford City were the visitors. Deon Burton netted for the Millers on eighty-one minutes only for Dean Windass to equalise for the Bantams three minutes later. The only card that day was a yellow for Scott Minto of the Millers.

Over the years Chris has been in the middle for various Millers games - a few being ...

Our nil-nil draw with Burnley in August 2004 and during the 2003/4 season was in charge of the Millers three times. Twice against Sunderland, firstly at the Stadium of Light which ended goalless while the game at Millmoor two months later was a two-nil victory for the visitors when Marcus Stewart scored twice. In April of that season he was in the middle for our game at Highfield Road where Andy Morrell put Coventry City in front on fifty-six minutes but a goal on seventy-five minutes from Martin Butler gave the Millers a point.

In 2002 Chris was the referee with our game at Turf Moor where the Millers went four-up in fifty-nine minutes with two goals each from Alan Lee and John Mullin. Steve Davis scored two goals for the home side but Darren Byfield scored in eighty-four and eighty-nine minutes to make it a six-two win to the Millers.

This season Chris has been in charge of ten games and has shown eighteen yellow cards
