In 20014/15 he started refereeing in the Conference League, moved up to the Football League in season 2016-17 and then the Championship in 2018/19.

He became part of the Select Group 2 of full time referees in 19/20, meaning that he can officiate matches at Premier League and Football League level, whilst he also joined the FIFA International Referees List as an assistant referee earlier 20/21.

Fulham were last refed by Mr Brooks in October 2022 when we drew 0-0 at home to Everton. He booked two Fulham players, Aleksandar Mitrovic and Bobby De Cordova-Reid, both for fouls, and on Everton player. Fulham's 24 shots against Everton is their most in a single Premier League game without scoring (since 2003/04).

in August of the same season, 22/23,Mr Brooks refed Fulham when we drew 0-0 away at Wolves, he booked six players including Harrison Reed, Joao Palhinha, for fouls, and Aleksandar Mitrovic for arguing. Mitrovic had a penalty saved in the 80th minute.

Mr Brooks previously bossed Fulham in the 1-1 away draw at Wigan in July 2020. He booked seven players four of which were from Fulham, Denis Odoi, Josh Onomah, Neeskens Kebano and Michael Hector all for fouls. Neeskens Kebano was Fulham's goal scorer

Earlier in that season in October 2019 he refed the 3-2 home victory over Luton . He booked one piayer, Tom Cairney for a foul in the 73rd minute. Aleksandar Mitrovic scored all three Fulham goals

The last time Ref Brooks bossed an Man Utd game was in May 2023 when they won 2-0 at home to Wolves, he booked three Man Utd players and two from Wolves.

Last season he officiated at 30 matches issuing 114 yellow cards and 3 reds, so 3.8 yellows per game.

His busiest game in recent times was West Ham against Chelsea in August 2023 when he booked six players and sent off a West Ham player for a second yellow.
