We need more referees; Fred

For the last four years only 20 referees in Port Vila Football has been officiating matches in three different fields until today.
Referee Development Officer, Lencie Fred made a special call to all 24 clubs to think seriously about refereeing and help provide referees to training before the season starts in September 2014.
“It is very sad to see some clubs never sent their referees to meetings but always ready to make complains against the match officials.” Said Lencie Fred.
“It is about all the clubs think seriously about refereeing and sent three referees each to represent their club this season.”
“We have 24 clubs and only 20 referees officiating matches which is not very good.”
“Sometimes one referee can officiate 2 to 3 matches a day.”
“If the 24 clubs sent 3 referees each to meetings and trainings, we will have 72 referees in 2014/2015 season.”
“On behalf of the referee committee, I am asking the clubs in Port Vila football and other member associations in Vanuatu to help refereeing department to provide more referees to training in the next few weeks.”
“If you would like to become a referee, you need to take part in a basic referee’s course.”
“Please call VFF on 25236 and ask for Lencie Fred or call your local member association in your area to speak to a local referee instructor to help.” Said Lencie Fred.
