MR DAVID FOSTER FROM NEWCASTLE, TYNE AND WEAR.

This is David’s 2nd season on the National list of Referees after spending 5 seasons (2001-2006) as a Football League assistant Referee.

He has taken charge of 2 previous Millers games, both of which were at Millmoor.
The first was the 5-1 drubbing of Crewe Alexandra in October 2006 in which David booked Millers centre-half Colin Murdock and sent off Midfielder Eugen Bopp for a second bookable offence, whilst he also booked 1 Crewe player.

The second game was the 1-0 victory over Blackpool on March 27th this year.
4 players were booked in that game, with Neil Cutler being the only Rotherham player to see yellow for time wasting.

In total last season he took charge of 22 games, booking 40 (1.81 per game) and sending off 5.
This season he has only officiated at 1 game, this being Bury’s 2-1 win over Accrington on September 29th when 6 players were shown yellow.

MR Foster will be assisted at Millmoor by…

PAUL GRAHAM from Greater Manchester and HARRY W LEONARD from East Sussex

4th official will be…

KEVIN J MATTOCKS from Lancashire
