Rotherham United’s derby game on Wednesday evening against Sheffield Wednesday sees yet another ‘new-to-Millers’ referee with Jarred Gillett from Australia in the middle.

Born in Queensland, Jarred was an A-League Referee in Australia from 2010 to 2019, refereeing five Hyundai A-League Grand Finals as well as being named the Hyundai A-League Referee of the Year five times. He was also part of the Asian Football Confederation Project Future referees programme which saw him visit the Premier League in 2010. His first game as an A-League Referee was in the 2010-11 season and in April 2017 he was appointed as one of the inaugural Video Assistant Referees.

He has also officiated in the J-League, the Indian Super League, the Chinese Super League and the Saudi Professional League and a the 2015 International Champions Cup before moving to England to take up a post-doctoral research position at Liverpool John Moores University.

At the start of the 2019/20 season, Jarred joined the Select Group 2 in England, his first game being between Morecambe and Cheltenham of League Two in April 2019.

This season he has been in the middle for six games showing twenty-one yellow cards and one red card.

Running the line on Wednesday night we have Paul Hodskinson and Philip Dermott while George Michael will be the Fourth Official.
