RUFC - Ref Watch v Swindon

RUFC - Ref Watch v Swindon
DEAN WHITESTONE from Northamptonshire

Dean began his refereeing career in the United Counties and Southern Leagues and in 2001 reached the National List of Referees. Midway through the 2005/6 season Dean was promoted to the Referees' List.

This will be the second time Dean has been in charge of a Millers game this season, the first being way back in August at the New York Stadium when Shrewsbury were in town. Jon Taylor put the visitors in front in the first half but twelve minutes into the second half an Alex Revell goal equalised for the Millers. Just after the hour mark the Shrews went in front for the second time with a Tom Bradshaw goal which prompted Steve Evans to bring Daniel Nardiello off the bench for Matt Tubbs and within three minutes the Millers striker had equalised again. Not long after Nardiello received a yellow card for 'unsporting behaviour` and incensed at the end of the game he ran over to the ref and started an argument which saw him get a second yellow after the final whistle.

Dean has been in the middle for other Millers games n the past, the first being at the Liberty Stadium two days before Christmas in 2006. Eugen Bopp put the Millers in front eleven minutes into the second half but an Adebayo Akinfenwa goal on the stroke of full-time gave Swansea a share of the points.

In January 2008 a hat-trick from Derek Holmes at Sincil Bank saw the Millers beat Lincoln City three-one. That day Dean showed red to Shane Clarke of Lincoln City in the final minute of the game.

Last season Dean was in the middle for our nil-nil draw with Barnet at Underhill when he sent Alex Revell off ten minutes from the end of the game for what he said was a 'two-footed challenge`.

This season Dean has been in charge of thirty-three games showing eighty-four yellow and four red cards.

Running the line for the last away league game of the season will be
Brett Huxtable from Devon
and
Elliott Kaye from Essex

The Fourth Official will be
Mark Pottage from Dorset
