WOMEN in the country are pursuing football officiating career. They are breaking barriers across the sport of football and making history for themselves.
Neverlyn Wanemau is one of the young female from the country who is very interested in taking up a role of refereeing the world’s loved sport.
“To be a referee I find it very busy for me as a student but also it is interesting helpful because I do earn a little from the job. My aim is to be a FIFA referee in the future.
Neverlyn has recently taken up the refereeing after undertaking referees training course at the Solomon Islands Football Federation (SIFF) academy. She made history when she took charge in a official match in the women’s football league this year.
At the moment she is currently doing her studies at the University of the South Pacific Honiara Campus.
She encouraged other young women in the country to follow her example in obtaining a referee certificate to officiate in future football tournaments.
“To engage in sports is another best opportunity for us to be somebody representing the country in the future. It is timely that young female should take up football refereeing as a career.”
