The Referee Steering Committee (RSC) of the Liberia Football Association in collaboration with the Liberia Football Referees Association (LIFRA) has officially badge six referees who have successfully passed the Elite FIFA Referee Course.
The RSC chairman Mason Goe and Atty. John Kollie, the President of LIFRA, presented the badges to the referees over the weekend in the conference room of the Antoinette Tubman Stadium.
The referees are Jerry Yekeh, 35; Isaac Montgomery, 29, and George S. Rogers, Jr. (age unavailable).
Assistant referees are Francis Sannoh, 28; Johnson Gbartea, 35; and Elisha A. Johnson, 37.
However, Referee Christopher F. Nylander, 33, and Assistant Referee Joseph Hoff, 35 were not badge owing to administrative reasons.
Unconfirmed reports said the two were denied because of insubordination to the Referee Steering Committee.
