Fantastic referee, quite rightly highly regarded. Much better than Bennett and Dowd etc who seem to have a dislike of Wigan Athletic!

IT IS definitely Steven Melling he was one of my mates at Gidlow school better ref than footy player but great lad Ray was a terrier of football player played with him at goose green LC but I think Dave Smith was the best local ref
