Referee Andy Davies, former player with Portsmouth, Gillingham and Yeovil had to stop playing through injury at the age of twenty-eight so turned to refereeing in 2003. He has made rapid progress and reached the National List in August 2012 and since then has refereed over 100 EFL matches.

In 2016 he became part of the Select Group 2 Referees and will now be employed on a full time basis

Ref Davis has reffed three Fulham games, so far this season, the most recent of which was the 2-0 home win over Barnsley in which he booked two players both from Barnsley.

Prior to that game, back in September, he refed our 2-1 defeat by Bristol City at The Cottage in the third round of the EFL Cup when he booked Joronen for a foul, and then in August in the 3-2 away win at Leyton Orient in the First round of the League Cup when he booked teenager Dennis Adeniran for excessive celebration after scoring the opening goal.

The last time Ref Davis refed a Blackburn game was in their 1-0 away defeat at Bristol City in October 2016. He booked three players, two from the home team.

Last season he officiated at 36 matches issuing 127 yellow cards and 5 reds, some 3.5 yellows per game, just about the average. His busiest game was Charlton vrs Leeds when he booked three home players and five away players.

This season so far he has reffed 31 games and has issued 111 yellows, an average of 3.6 per game, and four reds. So he is waving his cards a bit more than last season. His busiest games so far have been Ipswich v Brighton with 7 yellows and one red and Cardiff v Aston Villa when he issued 8 yellows.
