The man in charge of our opener of the 2010/11 season is . . .

RL Shoebridge from Derbyshire

Rob progressed through the Central Midlands and Northern Premier Leagues and reached the National List of Assistant Referees in 2003. His first league game as a full Referee was at the start of the 2006/7 season.

The first time he was in charge of a Millers match was in August 2007 at Millmoor. Rotherham beat Peterborough 3-1 with two goals from Derek Holmes and one from Chris O’Grady all before half-time. Aaron McLean got the consolation for the visitors.

Last season, Rob was in charge of our game at Morecambe when the Millers went down two-nil. He booked just one player, Drewe Broughton from Rotherham, that day.

Last season, in the thirty-one games he was in charge of, Rob gave out sixty-nine yellow cards and just one red card, which was to Jeff Goulding of Bournemouth who came on as a seventieth minute sub and was promptly red carded one minute later.

The men with the flags will be

AJ Horton from Wolverhampton
J Hull from Cheshire

The Fourth Official will be

C Akers from South Yorkshire
