Since taking up the whistle in 2006, Rob has progressed from the Central Wales development group in 2010 and through the Spar Mid Wales and the Huws Gray Alliance Leagues, before making it on to the Welsh Premier League as an assistant referee in the 2013/14 season.  In 2015/2016, Rob was promoted to the Welsh Premier League talent referees list to complete a meteoric rise to the top flight of Welsh football. In May 2017, Rob represented Wales as the Referee on the UEFA CORE (Centre of Referee Excellence) development scheme. As part of his preparation for CORE, he travelled to Northern Ireland to officiate a game with his two Welsh CORE assistants. The match was PSNI v Loughall FC in the Irish Championship. Some notable appointments in Rob’s refereeing career to date are the FAW Welsh Trophy final, the 2015/2016 FAW Youth Cup Final and an International under-19 friendly as the match referee in a Wales versus Greece match as well as last season’s Huws Gray Cup final.
