Football Local match assessors catch up with new adjustments in laws of the game |27 October 2021
Match assessors play a central and vital role in the development of modern day referees, while they are the guardians of standards and provide a quality service towards referee promotion, development and retention.
In line with that, the Seychelles Football Federation (SFF) is hosting a five-day training for local match assessors, enabling them to stay abreast of new adjustments in the laws of the game.
It is referee instructor Ali Ahmed of Somalia who is conducting the training which was officially launched on Monday by the chief executive of the SFF George Bibi, in the presence Clive Delorié, the SFF’s director of competition, and Jean-Claude Labrosse who is one of Seychelles’ three international assessors.
Launching the training, Mr Bibi said it has come at an opportune time, since football has evolved over the years and the laws of the game have been constantly changing, with amendments being made over the years.
He said, as assessors, the course participants should keep themselves abreast of all the ongoing changes.
He explained that as assessors, they should be on top in terms of knowing and understanding the laws in order to assess the referees.
Other than Mr Labrosse, the other Seychellois international assessors are Jason Damoo and Militna Marie.
