The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has appointed three Sierra Leonean referees to officiate the second leg match between the host SC Praia and AS Far of Morocco in the MTN CAF Champions league this weekend.
One of Sierra Leone’s vibrant and most experienced referee who has contributed to the development of the referee association Billy Edward Parkinson will be in the centre alongside two other referees Dawdu Williams and Sheriff Newland who will be assistant one and two respectively.
The match commissioner will be coming from Senegal – Ndiaye Youssou.
This is not the first time Sierra Leonean referees have officiated international matches. The late Ahmed Jalloh during his reign created an impact in officiating international matches that is why Billy Parkinson will be seen as not an exception.
