REFEREES AND ASSISTANTS CONFIRMED FOR 2008 FIFA LIST
Thursday, 03 Jan 2008
In the latter part of December, FIFA confirmed to the SFA that all the Referee Committee’s nominations for inclusion in the 2008 List of International Referees and Assistant Referees had been accepted.
The officials are:
Stuart Dougal retired after 11 years service as a FIFA referee at the end of December due to his reaching the age limit of 45 years. The Referee Committee chose, on this occasion, not to submit a nomination in his place but will return to submitting seven referee nominations in the future.
There is one change to the group of male assistant referees – Willie Conquer replaces Jim Lyon, who has served as a FIFA assistant since 2003.
The Referee Committee chose not to re-nominate Morag Pirie as a women assistant referee to open the possibility of her being nominated as a referee for 2009. FIFA’s regulations require a period of one year to elapse before an official can be nominated as a referee after serving as an assistant.
