RUFC - Ref Watch v Huddersfield

RUFC - Ref Watch v Huddersfield
Peter Bankes from Merseyside

Peter began refereeing at the age of fourteen in his native Liverpool area. Spending two years as a Select Group Assistant Referee, he was appointed to the EFL Referees List in 2014.

This will be Peter's fourth time in the middle for a Millers game, two of those being last season. The first was in September when Nottingham Forest were the visitors to the New York Stadium. Jon Taylor put the Millers in front on the half-hour mark but Forest scored twice in the second half from Matt Mills and Apostolos Vellios. In between the visitors goals Mr Bankes gave Darnell Fisher a second yellow card banishing him to the dressing rooms. A goal three minutes from time again from Taylor gave the Millers a point on the night. Also booked that evening was Joe Mattock and Izzy Brown for the hosts plus three Forest players.

He was also in charge of our game away at Ashton Gate in February when a goal on seventy-five minutes from Milan Djuric gave Bristol City the three points.

The first time Peter was in charge of a Millers game was in October 2015 for our Friday night game at home to Burnley in front of the TV cameras and the one where caretaker Manager Eric Black was in the dugout. Andre Gray opened the scoring on nine minutes but with fifteen minutes to go a wonder strike from Grant Ward levelled things up. Unfortunately for Rotherham six minutes later Sam Vokes made it two-one to the visitors giving them all three points.

This season Peter has shown eighteen yellow cards and one red card, which was to former Millers loanee Gavin Gunning now playing for Port Vale, in the five games he has been in charge of.
