RUFC - Ref Watch v Northampton



Nigel Miller from County Durham

Nigel was appointed to the National List of Assistant Referees in 1996 and seven years later was promoted to the National List of Referees. He says that the highlights of his career so far are his three trips to the Millennium Stadium.

The last time Nigel was in charge of a Millers game was almost a year ago at Don Valley Stadium where a Shaun Harrad penalty on twenty-eight minutes was enough to give the Millers all three points against Accrington Stanley. That day the only card Nigel produced was a yellow for Stanley's Aristote Nsiala.

Not a stranger to the Millers, having been in the middle for a few games, he has twice sent off Millers players. In the game at Don Valley against Torquay in February 2010 with the game at one-one, and in the last minute, a bad tackle from Gary Roberts on Rowe-Turner saw him receive his second yellow of the night and an early bath.

He was also in the middle for our Carling Cup game at Hillsborough in August 2008 when the game was one-all at ninety minutes thanks to an Alex Rhodes equalising goal a minute after Etienne Esajas had put Sheffield Wednesday into the lead. In the one hundred and sixteenth minute Marc Joseph saw red after fetching down Leon Clarke and Esajas curled the ball into the bottom corner of the net from the resulting free-kick. Two minutes later Reuben Reid got a second equaliser for the Millers and the visitors won five-three on penalties.

So far this season Nigel has officiated in twenty-five games and shown seventy-two yellow cards and two red cards.

Running the line at the New York Stadium on Saturday will be
Warren Broadbent from Tyne & Wear
