The Labasa Football Referees Association awards night was held over the weekend.

Sponsored by Jaiendra Sahay, the annual event acknowledged the hard work of the members and their fami­lies over the past 12 months.

Three referees from Savusavu, four from Seaqaqa and 12 from Labasa at­tended.

Association interim president Salesh Chand said the work of refer­ees was crucial as they are often chal­lenged to make decisions on the spot.

“Often we are criticised or assault­ed when we are just doing our job,” Chand said.

“There are times when our families are victimised at the park or outside or on social media.

“Hence, we organise annual awards night to reward our members for their commitment and their families for their support.
