Jarred Gillett is a 33 year old Australian referee who has been officiating for 10 years. He has now become the first foreign referee to work in the EFL.

Gillett will join Select Group 2 in England at the start of the 2019/20 season after taking up a post-doctoral research position at Liverpool John Moores University, where he will specialise in research on children with cerebral palsy.

On 15 April 2019 Gillett was selected to take charge of his first fixture in the EFL.

He was chosen to officiate the EFL League Two match between Morecambe FC and Cheltenham Town FC on 22 April 2019. Gillett officiated his first Championship match, Blackburn Rovers v Swansea City, on the final day of the 2018/19 season.

Ref Gillett has never bossed a Fulham game and he has never bossed a Barnsley game either.

Last season Mr Gillett refed 3 Football League games and dished out 12 yellows and no reds, so an average 4 yellows per game.

Mr Gillett's busiest game so far was the 0-0 draw between Fleetword and Bristol Rovers when he yellow carded eight players, six from Bristol Rovers and two for Fleetwood players.
