Rotherham United’s home game on Saturday against Oxford United sees Scott Oldham from Lancashire with the whistle.
After refereeing in the National League Scott became a League Referee in the 2017/18 season where he was in charge of the Millers three times.
The first time was also at the New York Stadium in our five-one win over Walsall when Lee Frecklington got a hat-trick with Jon Taylor scoring the other two in September 2017 with the second time being two months later for our FA Cup game at Gresty Road. Despite Will Vaulks putting Rotherham in front on twenty-one minutes, second half goals from Brad Walker and Callum Ainley saw League Two Crewe through to the next round where they took Blackburn Rovers to a replay before bowing out of the competition. Sean Cummings, Ryan Williams and Kieffer Moore saw yellow for the Millers that day.
The third time Scott was in the middle for a Millers game was a Friday afternoon game in March when Caolan Lavery gave hosts Rotherham the lead on sixty-eight minutes only for visitors Peterborough to get a late goal to give them a point to take home with Jack Marriott scoring eight minutes into time added on at the end of the game.
Scott has shown twenty-eight yellow cards in the nine games he has been in charge of so far this season.
Running the line at the New York Stadium will be Peter Gooch and Geoffrey Liddle and the Fourth Official is Helen Byrne from Merseyside.
