Coming off of the heels of the Member Association Referee Training Course held last week. The St Kitts Nevis Football Association received confirmation of the appointment of FIFA Referee Graeme Browne as Assistant Referee for the CONCACAF Men’s U-17 Championship 2011 to be held in Jamaica from February 14-27, 2011.
Graeme is the only referee selected from the OECS countries which is a testament to the quality of referees we have in St Kitts and Nevis. The other Caribbean countries with selected referees are Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados and Aruba. Referees that have also been selected are from South America and North American countries.
The St Kitts-Nevis Football Association would like to congratulate Mr. Graeme Browne on his appointment and wish him much success during the tournament.
St Kitts-Nevis currently has five Referees on the FIFA list, which is a high rate of referees per capita in the Caribbean.
