Refs get Africa as­sign­ments

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Sikhum­buzo Moyo

IN what could be a clear sign of con­fi­dence in the re­cently ap­pointed Zim­babwe Ref­er­ees Com­mit­tee, five Zim­bab­wean ref­er­ees will in the next two months be ac­tively in­volved in re­gional and in­ter­na­tional as­sign­ments.

Women as­sis­tant ref­eree and reign­ing Castle Lager Premier Soc­cer League As­sis­tant Ref­eree of the Year Claris Si­mango yes­ter­day flew out of the coun­try for Cameroon to at­tend a one week Caf elite course for ref­er­ees and as­sis­tant ref­er­ees.

Si­mango is likely to be one of the match of­fi­cials at next month’s To­tal Africa Women Cup of Na­tions in the same coun­try.

Bu­l­awayo’s Faith Mloyi and Brighton Chimene have been ap­pointed ref­er­ees for the African Union Sports Coun­cil Re­gion Five Un­der-20 Youth Games pen­cilled for An­gola from De­cem­ber 5-15, while No­more Musundire will do duty at the Cosafa Un­der-20 foot­ball tour­na­ment in South Africa from De­cem­ber 7-19.

“We will also have Nor­man Mate­mera at­tend­ing a Caf B elite ref­er­ees’ course in Cameroon for a week be­gin­ning Novem­ber 1. It is pleas­ing to note that our ex­ter­nal stake­hold­ers have not taken long to recog­nise that there is now or­der in the or­gan­i­sa­tion of ref­er­ee­ing in the coun­try,” said Zim­babwe Ref­er­ees Com­mit­tee deputy chair­per­son Glad­more Muzambi. — @ skhu­moyo2000
