Sunny emulates father Jarnail Singh and becomes EFL referee

Sunny Singh Gill will follow in father Jarnail Singh's footsteps after earning promotion to the EFL National Group of match referees.

Jarnail Singh is the first turbaned referee in the history of English league football and took charge of more than 150 games across the divisions between 2004 and 2010. Jarnail retired from league officiating in 2011 and now advises the Football Association but still occasionally referees in the Combined Counties League.

Sunny is the most senior referee of British South Asian heritage in the country and joined the highest-ranked Black referee Sam Alisson to preside over the League Two game between Swindon Town and Leyton Orient in April in a landmark moment for officiating in English football.
