Ref­er­ees ex­change with

●The first time that an al­lGoz­i­tan team of of­fi­cials is ap­pointed for a match abroad

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

A week af­ter the ref­eree ex­change with San Marino Foot­ball Fed­er­a­tion – when Mal­tese and Sam­mari­nesi of­fi­cials con­trolled do­mes­tic top level games in each other’s coun­try – the com­ing week­end will see this sea­son’s third such ex­pe­ri­ence ma­te­ri­alise, this time with the Gi­bral­tar Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion.

Elite of­fi­cials Mario Apap and Emanuel Grech (ref­er­ees), Paul Apap and Sammy At­tard (as­sis­tant ref­er­ees), will be trav­el­ling to Gi­bral­tar to take charge of the fol­low­ing two Gi­bral­tar­ian Premier League matches at the Vic­to­ria Stadium:

To­mor­row at 8.30pm, Mario Apap will con­trol Lin­coln FC vs Mons Calpe SC.

On Sun­day at 4.30pm, Emanuel Grech will con­trol Europa FC vs Gi­bral­tar United FC.

(In both matches, Mario Apap and Emanuel Grech will al­ter­nate their roles as ref­eree and fourth of­fi­cial).

On the same dates, ref­er­ees and as­sis­tant ref­er­ees from Gi­bral­tar will be in Malta to con­trol two Premier League and Di­vi­sion 1 matches.

As al­ways, from such matches in ex­change pro­grammes away from their shores, of­fi­cials in the top cat­e­gory gain in­valu­able ex­pe­ri­ence not only for their future lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional ref­er­ee­ing ca­reers, but also on a per­sonal level; which give the Malta FA much sat­is­fac­tion in its en­deav­our and aims for the ref­er­ee­ing sec­tor to be in the high­est pos­si­ble level.

In the near future, the Malta FA Ref­er­ee­ing Cen­tre will be an­nounc­ing other such ref­eree ex­changes.
