    Jarred GillettGillett has taken charge of two Championship games this season

    Jarred Gillett will become the first overseas official to referee a Premier League game when he takes charge of Watford v Newcastle on Saturday.

    The 34-year-old Australian was promoted to Select Group 1 by the Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) before the start of the season.

    Gillett has been on Premier League VAR duty this season and has refereed two Championship games this term.

    He began officiating in England in 2019 after leaving Australia's A-League.

    The Premier League said he would become "the first overseas official" to referee a Premier League match.

    Although former Premier League referee Dermot Gallagher was born in Ireland, he moved to England aged 16 and was considered an English FA representative – and was even able to officiate in a Republic of Ireland game against Russia in 2002.
