Call for more new referees

FIJI Football Association's new referee's director and Ba academy manager Rajendra Kant Sharma wants to see the younger generation take up refereeing.

Master Sharma as he is commonly known is not new in the refereeing circles.

He took up refereeing in 1978 before hanging the whistle in 1990 to become the referee's assessor.

Sharma said the aim was to get more cadets.

"We have a good lot of referees and there is a young lot that is coming up," he said.

"We are grooming them to become better. We want to get in more cadets and hopefully we will be able to recruit them when we go around the country.

"There are plans which we will implement as soon as the referee seminars are held. There is a course coming up in October."

A total of 18 match officials were part of the panel for the Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giants group stage in Ba.

Sharma said the formalisation of the referees associations in all districts would strengthen their base.

"We are hoping to have local district courses where we will get the younger match officials," he said.

"The formalisation of the referee's associations in all districts is one area we will look at.

"There are a lot of match officials controlling the local district competitions but there is no formal organisation for them."
