The man in charge of our game on Saturday against Dagenham and Redbridge is …

BRENDAN MALONE from Wiltshire

This is Brendan’s second season as a Football League Referee. Brendan got into refereeing after picking up an injury while playing football for a Hampshire League, which finished his career at the age of twenty-three.

As an Assistant Referee he states that running the line in the 2008 Johnstone`s Paint Trophy Cup Final between MK Dons and Grimsby at the new Wembley Stadium as one of his greatest moments.

The only time he has been in charge of a Millers match was in September 2010 at Underhill Stadium. The game suddenly burst into life twenty minutes from the end when five goals were scored. Kevin Ellison opened the scoring on seventy minutes and two minutes later Tom Pope got a second. Danny Harrison made it three-nil on seventy-six minutes with Mark Byrne getting a goal for the home side four minutes later. The final goal of the game was scored in the final minute of the game by Adam Le Fondre. The only card of the game was shown to the Millers’ Exodus Geohaghon.

This season Brendan has shown sixty-nine yellow cards and four red cards in the eighteen games he’s been in charge of.


Running the line on Saturday will be
Stuart Butler from Kent
and
Jake Hillier from Hertfordshire

The Fourth Official will be
Darren Blunden from Kent
