RUFC - Ref Watch v Brentford

RUFC - Ref Watch v Brentford
ANDY DAVIES from Hampshire

Andy was a former footballer at youth level with a number of clubs which helped when it came to climbing up the ladder in his refereeing and was appointed to the EFL Referees List for the 2012/13 season.

The last time the Millers and Andy met was in April 2015 at Craven Cottage where Matt Derbyshire opened the scoring on four minutes but Ross McCormack equalised in the second half to give each team a point. Kirk Broadfoot saw yellow that day for Rotherham with the hosts having Michael Turner, Dan Burn and Danny Guthrie booked.

He was also in charge of our game two months earlier at Vicarage Road when two goals from Odion Ighalo and one from Troy Deeney gave the hosts a three-nil victory. Kari Arnason and Richie Smallwood saw yellow that evening.

The first time Andy reffed a Rotherham game was at the New York Stadium in March 2013 when Dagenham and Redbridge were the visitors. The game was going OK until the fifty-eighth minute when Kari Arnason and Medy Elito had a 'coming together` just inside the box which Mr Davies was ignoring until his linesman got his attention. The next thing we knew was not only was Arnason shown a straight red but the Daggers were awarded a penalty which Elito duly took and scored from. Claude Davies got an equaliser on sixty-six minutes but eight minutes from time Luke Wilkinson got the winner for the visitors. Claude Davies and Daniel Nardiello were also booked that day. After the game Millers Manager Steve Evans said that when Andy Davies looked back on his performance he would be 'as disappointed as I am.`

In the twenty-eight games Andy has been in charge of this season he has shown one hundred and five yellow cards and four red cards.
