RUFC - Ref Watch v Port Vale



ROB LEWIS from Shropshire

Rob actually worked his way up to be a League referee some years ago and officiated at nearly fifty games before a lengthy injury cost him his place on the National List.

After running the line in the Premiership and refereeing in the Conference he was added again to the list for the start of the 2010/11 season.

His first time in charge of a Millers game was at Don Valley in November 2010 when Northampton were the visitors. Ryan Taylor and Marcus Marshall put the Milers two up in nineteen minutes but the Cobblers scored two goals in two minutes to make it two-two five minutes later. Abdul Osman and Andy Holt got the visitors goals. That day Rob showed yellow cards to Jamie Annerson, Kevin Ellison and Mark Bradley of the Millers and Northampton`s Marcus Hall and Dean Beckworth.

Rob was in charge of two Millers games the following season Firstly our game at Sixfields when Gareth Evans put Rotherham in front on just two minutes then a bizarre own goal from Conrad Logan on twenty-four minutes gave the Cobblers a share of the points. He was then in charge of our game with Bristol Rovers in February when a goal in the final minute of the game gave Rovers the three points.

Last season Rob came to the New York Stadium to take charge of our game against Wycombe Wanderers. Daniel Nardiello scored in the opening minute only for Dave Winfield to equalise just before the half-hour mark. Six minutes later Mark Bradley put the Millers back in front but two goals in the second half from Matt McClure sent Wycombe home with all three points.

Rob isn't unknown throughout the football world for controversy as he is the assistant who didn't see Roy Carroll retrieve the ball from a good yard over the line after a shot from Spurs' Pedro Mendes had been fumbled by the Manchester United 'keeper. He was also reported by Bradford City a couple of years ago when he is alleged to have verbally abused a player.

This season Rob has been in the middle for twelve games and has shown forty-five yellow and three red cards.
