Refwatch: Rochdale v Wealdstone
Sunday, 25th Feb 2024 12:00 by TVOS

Wealdstone will make their first visit to Spotland on Tuesday for a match that will be refereed by DAVID McNAMARA.

The Preston-based official is in his first season refereeing in the National League and Tuesday will be his 13th appointment of the campaign.

One of the previous twelve was Dale’s 0-0 home draw with York City in mid-December.

Mr McNamara has been refereeing for 17 years, during which time he has also had employment in quite a senior, high-pressured career.

David is a Chief Petty Officer in the Royal Navy and is currently a Submarine Warfare Training Instructor, having previously been a Warfare Specialist on HMS Vanguard, an Electronic Warfare Analyst for the RAF and an Operations Manager on an active nuclear submarine!

Although Tuesday will be only the second time Dale have met Mr McNamara since our relegation to the National League, we have seen him in the past in charge of pre-season friendlies at Chester and AFC Fylde.

Possession football looks good but if the ball doesn't go in the net then it makes no odds whatsoever. I'd like to think that we were just unlucky, but this is happening too many times now.

McNamara, based in Preston, is in his inaugural season as a referee in the National League. Despite being relatively new to this level of officiating, he brings extensive experience from his 17-year tenure as a referee.
