The man in charge of our game this evening at Don Valley is ….

PHILIP GIBBS from the West Midlands

After twelve years of being working the non-league circuit and being and carrying a flat, Assistant Head Teacher, Phil stepped up to be a League referee in July 2008.

This will be Phil`s third visit to Don Valley, the first was in September 2008 when a bizarre goal from Alex Rhodes was enough to give the Millers all three points. Just after the hour mark, of what had been an uneventful game, Rhodes seem to over hit a cross from the left hand touchline and with both defenders looking on disbelievingly it sailed over them and Hatters` ‘keeper, Dean Brill, into the net.
