Pilbara News - - Sport - Greg Emms

Last week­end Foot­ball West gen­eral man­ager foot­ball Eddie Len­nie was in Kar­ratha for the an­nual ref­er­ees devel­op­ment week­end.

This was an op­por­tu­nity for Pil­bara ref­er­ees to learn from and re­ceive ad­vice from a ref­eree who has of­fi­ci­ated at the pin­na­cle of the game, the World Cup.

On Satur­day, Len­nie was at Pegs Creek Oval where he as­sessed lo­cal soc­cer ref­er­ees and ran a train­ing ses­sion for them.

His feed­back was that the Kar­ratha com­pe­ti­tion was for­tu­nate to have all the games of­fi­ci­ated by qual­i­fied ref­er­ees who pre­sented and con­ducted them­selves to a high stan­dard.

On Sun­day, Len­nie ran a na­tion­ally ac­cred­ited Level 4 Ref­er­ees Course.

The full-day course com­prised sev­eral the­ory ses­sions and a cou­ple of prac­ti­cal ses­sion which cov­ered player man­age­ment, whis­tle tech­niques and flag sig­nals.

The four grad­u­ates of the course will now ap­ply their skills in the lo­cal ju­nior com­pe­ti­tion.
