Bhups and Sunny Singh Gill, sons of former referee Jarnail Singh are to officiate in the same Championship match at the weekend.

Sunny is an officer at HMP Feltham.

Another bit of officiating history. Well done lads.

Have spoken with Jarnail many times over the years at Brentford when he was assessing refs ( after he retired from the middle ) and if his sons have the same sense of humour as their father they will go far.

As someone who refereed after I stopped playing I can assure you that a sense of humour is a prerequisite ! :sorted: :sorted: :giggle:

He technically hasn't retired from the middle, he is found in the combined counties division 1. I've been on his line numerous times over the last few years. So much intelligence still, no wonder his kids have reached where they have.

Thanks for that Ladbroke...I know he has done a few games at Jersey Road but didn't realise he was still officiating at a lower level now. As you say he has so much knowledge and is always prepared to chat and discuss anything football related... :sorted:

Another positive step in the right direction.

Have crossed paths with Sunny Gill many times, as he used to referee Beesotted FC, on a Sunday Morning in the Chiswick and District League.

He was a "stickler" (for want of a better woird) and we had a few disagreements after games, but good luck to the chap.

Good stuff. Actually one of the best referees I have ever seen at GP was when we played Barnsley in 1993. A crucial last home game and we won 3-1. The referee was Sikh (can't remember his full name) but just let the game flow. Think he also shouted at the lino when he flagged for a foul when it was never a foul.

Ghurnam Singh probably? Think he packed in refereeing after getting some racial abuse.

Oh how I miss the days of refereeing Beesotted Smiffy, it was always guaranteed entertainment.

My dad mentions this exact game whenever we talk about refereeing. Brilliant!

Seen Sunny at H&W a few times and he seems to get decisions right without even looking like he's trying. It's very surreal to watch. Fair play to the bloke.

This thread is making me feel old. I ran the line to Jarnail (who used to be known as John to his fellow refs) several times on the Dr Martens/Beazer Homes Southern League. He's a few years younger than me and he's got two kids in their 30s on the line in the EFL!

Think Bhupinder was the assistant ref vs Derby in December.
He ran the line in front us and his family were sat a few rows behind.

Previous home game against Notts country I never felt so angry leaving a game because of the referee. The infamous Ray Biggar playing on until Notts County equalised. And the away game before Barnsley the referee somehow gave a penalty for Watford when the ball hit Pitball from less than a yard out. Even Brum in their final game of the season they scored from an outside goal. We really didn’t have any luck that season.

Many more but there were some highlights. Notably Smille heading a googly against Pompey ...
