‘I’ve never seen anything like it’ PL referee asked for autograph by fans…who is he?

A rare moment has been captured in the English Premier League (PL).

“Sunny Singh Gill has become the first British South Asian to referee a Premier League match,” Sky Sports reported on Tuesday (local time).

Crystal Palace and Luton Town met in the 28th round of the 2023/24 PL on Tuesday at Selhurst Park in London, England. The two teams played to a goalless draw after 90 minutes.

A rare sight was captured during the match. According to Sky Sports, referee Sunny Singh Gill signed autographs for fans. It’s not often that you see a non-player referee providing fan service to fans.

“Referee Gill was in charge of the match between Crystal Palace and Luton Town. He became the first South Asian to officiate in a PL match.”

While there was no controversy surrounding the call during the game, he was criticized afterward by former PL referee Mike Dean. He was criticized for signing autographs during the game.

Dean says, “I’ve been asked for autographs after officiating about 300 games. You have to sign autographs before or after the game. Not at half-time.”

Meanwhile, football writer Vijay Bhardwaj said, “As an Asian Englishman, I am proud of Gill for being the first South Asian Englishman to referee in the PL. It’s a great 카지노사이트 moment.” The Professional Football Referees’ Organization of England (PGMOL) congratulated Gill on his debut, tweeting, “Congratulations, Sunny!”

According to the media, Gill is the eldest son of Jarnail Singh Gill, the first turbaned Sikh referee in the English Football League (EFL). Gill’s younger brother, Bhupinder Singh Gill, made his debut as an assistant referee in the PL in January.
