Jarred Gillett confirmed as Grand Final referee

Football Federation Australia (FFA) Director of Referees Ben Wilson has announced that Jarred Gillett will referee the Hyundai A-League 2018 Grand Final between Newcastle Jets and Melbourne Victory at McDonald Jones Stadium on Saturday 5 May.

“The Grand Final is the pinnacle of the Hyundai A-League season and it’s an honour to lead the team of match officials in Saturday's decider,” Gillett said.

“This appointment wouldn’t be possible without the strong support of my colleagues, FFA Referees coaching staff, my wife Michelle, and my family.”  

“The refereeing team has plenty of finals experience and I’m confident that we’ll be fully prepared for what should be a competitive Grand Final on Saturday night,” concluded Gillett.

Wilson also announced that Gillett will be joined by Assistant Referees Matthew Cream and Paul Cetrangolo, Kurt Ams (Fourth Official) and Andrew Lindsay (Fifth Official) with Craig Zetter Video Assistant Referee.
