Narayan wins again

AVINESH Narayan was again selected the Amalgamated Packaging Referee of the year during the Vodafone/Fiji FA Awards night last Friday.

And let out a secret to his success- fitness.

“It was really hard to get this award again this year as we have a lot of referees in Fiji doing their best.

“Fitness is the most important thing for referees to progress in refereeing career.

“I resigned my work back in 2013 just to give my 100 percent commitment towards refereeing and I have always tried to do my best in all the games,” Narayan said.

Narayan got his FIFA Referee’s badge in 2012.

He received his appointment to officiate at the Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) semifinal between Team Wellington and Auckland City this Sunday.

“I went to the first stage in American Samoa and second stage in Tahiti.

“I did not get any appointment for quarterfinal but now I have been called for the semifinal stage for the second time.”
