Meet the officials | Millwall

4th April 2022
First team

Andy Davies will be the man in the middle when Swansea City travel to The Den on Tuesday evening to take on Millwall in the Championship.

The man from Hampshire is one of the only officials plying their trade in the EFL who previously played professional football. He turned out for Gillingham, Portsmouth and Yeovil Town before being forced to retired aged 28 due to an injury.

His refereeing journey began during the 2004-05 season and he quickly advanced through the leagues. In May 2012, he took charge of a National League play-off semi final and the following season he was added to the National List of Referees.

In 2016, he was included in the Select Group 2 officials and has been included in that group every season since.

He was due to be the referee for Swansea's home match against Birmingham in March, but withdrew late on.

He most recently took charge of a Swans’ match in January this year. He sent Flynn Downes off in the 90th minute of that game as Russell Martin’s side played out a goalless draw at Loftus Road.

He was also the referee when Swansea picked up three points at the CBS Arena against Coventry City in November.

In total throughout this campaign, Davies has overseen 28 games handing out 79 yellow cards and two reds.

On Tuesday, he will be assisted by Graham Kane and Adam Crysell. Gavin Ward will be the fourth official.
