First overseas Premier League referee


Recommended Posts

Jarred Gillett will become the first overseas official to referee a Premier League game when he takes charge of Watford v Newcastle on Saturday. 
 

The 34-year-old Australian was promoted to Select Group 1 by the Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) before the start of the season.

 

Gillett has been on Premier League VAR duty this season and has refereed two Championship games this term. 

 

He began officiating in England in 2019 after leaving Australia's A-League. 

 

Although former Premier League referee Dermot Gallagher was born in Ireland, he was considered an English FA representative - and was even able to officiate in a Republic of Ireland game against Russia in 2002.

Saw the thread title, thought "I hope it's not that bloody Australian, he's awful", saw it was that bloody Australian. He's awful by the way.

 

That said, he's a million times better than what we've had to put up with in L1 so far.
