Refs did well in Turks

Local referees Nolan ‘Falcon’
Foster and Kenville Holder were in Turks and Caicos from Monday to Thursday
this week where they were officiating in the Caribbean Football Union Men’s
Under-20 playoffs.

Both refs are members of the Cayman
Islands Referees Association, an affiliate of the Cayman Islands Football
Association. They were appointed to officiate by the CFU.

Foster, who holds a degree in
Physical Education and Sports, joined the referees association just for the fun
of it. He became more involved and has since adopted refereeing as his second
career. He was appointed to the position of a FIFA referee in January.

Holder is a police officer with the
Royal Cayman Islands Police Service and earned his FIFA status in 2007. He was
an assistant referee at the FIFA level before he was promoted to officiate in
the middle.

A delighted Jeffrey Webb, president
of CIFA, said: “I am extremely proud of these referees who have placed
tremendous efforts into the physical and mental aspects of refereeing in order
to reach this level. On behalf of the CIFA I wish them all the best at the
international level and hope that they will be an example to be emulated by
those who will follow this career in the future.”

Presently there are four referees
on the FIFA list from the Cayman Islands besides Foster and Holder – Dwayne
Ebanks and Swason Owen who are assistant refs.
