Rotherham United’s Boxing Day game sees them travelling to Shropshire to take on Shrewsbury Town at the New Meadow and in the middle will be Marc Edwards from County Durham.
This is Marc’s first season refereeing in the EFL but not his first time this season in charge of the Millers the first being in October at the New York Stadium. The game was the Football League Trophy when Doncaster Rovers were the visitors. Rotherham went in front on eleven minutes with an own goal from Joe Wright with Kieran Sadlier equalising for the visitors twenty-six minutes later. Rovers went in front nine minutes into the second half when Wright made amends for his goal in the wrong net but goals from Carlton Morris and Trevor Clarke, making his Rotherham debut, saw the Millers win three-two.
As a footnote, Marc is married to the female Assistant Referee Helen Byrne.
Of the sixteen games Marc has been in the middle for this season he has shown thirty-eight yellow cards and one red card.
Running the line at Shrewsbury will be Andrew Dallison> and Ravel Cheosiaua while the Fourth Official is Steven Plane.
