ROB Jenkins has spoken of a whirlwind week of refereeing.

The Guilsfield based official served as fourth official in Wales’ friendly clash with Trinidad and Tobago last Wednesday night before refereeing TNS’ JD Welsh Premier meeting with Bala Town on Friday.

Jenkins had been looking forward to a well deserved rest when he was contacted by Guilsfield Football Club officials in desperate need of a match official for their fixture against Rhyl in the Huws Gray Alliance after the original matchday officials were involved in a road traffic accident.

Jenkins stepped up to the plate and officiated the game.

Jenkins said:”The appointed match officials travelling from North Wales had been involved in a car accident.

“Thankfully all were not seriously injured but were taken to Shrewsbury Hospital to be checked out.

“Unfortunately as it was short notice there weren’t any available match officials to be assistant referees on the game so after a quick warm up the match kicked off at 3pm with myself also being responsible for offside decisions.

“The match was played in a good spirit throughout.

Meanwhile Jenkins was delighted to make his international bow in Wrexham on Wednesday.

“The Wales match was a fantastic occasion to be involved in,” said Jenkins. “It was the biggest match of my refereeing career to date and hopefully the first of many international matches.”

Jenkins joined the three Northern Irish officials in a one hour training slot on the Racecourse Ground the night before the friendly before undertaking a morning briefing with groundstaff, security and police representatives on the morning of the match which Wales went on to win 1-0 with an injury time winner.
