Darren Drysdale from Lincolnshire.

Darren became a National List Referee in 1996.

In 1998 he was promoted to the SG of assistant referees and spent 4 seasons as a FIFA match official.

The last time he was referee for a Millers game was the home game with Rochdale in 2008, when Reuben Reid came up with an injury time leveler to salvage a precious point for the Millers against their ten man opponents.

Rochdale had been reduced to ten men after substitute Lee Thorpe was sent off just three minutes after he came on in the 69th minute.

Rhodes had opened the scoring for Rochdale scoring four minutes before the break and Will Buckley extended the lead in the 51st minute.

Then Rory McArdle put the ball in his own net after 77 minutes to give the Millers hope, with Reid netting the equaliser four minutes into injury time.

This season Darren has taken charge of just 4 Games issuing 9 Yellows but no Red cards.

Running the lines will be Keith Lawson (South Humberside) along with Scott Duncan (Newcastle-upon-Tyne)

The Fourth Official is Ricky Wootton (West Riding)
