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 two Fulham games, so far this season, the most recent of which was, the 2-1 defeat by Bristol City at The Cottage in the third round of the EFL Cup, back in September, 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.

The last time Ref Davis reffed a Barnsley game was in their 0-0 draw away at Burton in April 2016. He booked three players, all 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 AFC Wimbledon v Notts Co when he booked three home players and four away players.

This season so far he has reffed 24 games and has issued 86 yellows, an average of 3.6 per game, and four reds. So he is waving his cards a bit more than last season particularly the red one. 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.
