Jarred Gillett will be the man in the middle when Swansea City host Fulham in SA1 on Tuesday evening (7.45pm).

Born and raised on the Gold Cost, Gillett starting officiating at the top level in his native Australia in 2010. He was put in charge of the Hyundai A-League Grand Final for the first time just two years later and went on to referee four consecutive finals from 2015 to 2018. These dates coincided with him being named the league’s Referee of the Year.

In one of his final A-League games, Gillett and his fellow officials were mic’d up for a video released by Fox Sports Australia, which has been viewed almost three million times.

The 35-year-old made the switch to the EFL in April 2019 and Swansea's away match against Blackburn Rovers on the final day of the 2018-19 season was his first time in charge of a Championship match. The game ended in a 2-2 draw and with a yellow card apiece. 

He has since taken charge of four further Swans matches: draws against Derby and Huddersfield in 2019, a win at Birmingham in 2020 and a 1-0 defeat at home to Queens Park Rangers in 2021.

In 2021, Gillett became the first person outside Britain and Ireland to referee a Premier League match after being promoted to the Select Group 1 of officials in July of last year. 

In the current campaign, Gillett has handed out 42 yellow cards and three reds in 15 matches. He will be assisted by James Mainwaring and Timothy Wood on Tuesday night. Andy Woolmer will be the fourth official.
