Grenada’s Referee, Reon Radix, has been appointed yet again to officiate at the CONCACAF level.
Radix, who will be attending the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup Referee’s Candidate Course in Tampa, Florida, 27 April to 16 May, has been appointed as a referee in the 2019 Flow Concacaf Caribbean Club Championship in Jamaica, from 12-19 May 2019.
The Grenadian Referee recently returned from officiating in the CONCACAF Under-17 Boys qualification tournament Group Two in Bradenton, Florida.
Radix, however, is not the only local match official making his name on the International football circuit. Assistant Referee, Clenton Daniel, just wrapped up his stint officiating in the CONCACAF Caribbean Cup Shield 2019 in Curacao.
GFA’s First Vice President, Allan James, who is the Chairman of the Referees Committee, congratulated Radix on his achievement thus far as a match official. James noted its positive news for both Grenada and Radix. The referee’s Committee Chairman believes “opportunities like this will help motivate other young match officials to improve their skill, so they too can join Reon and Clenton Daniel on the FIFA list of referees.”
While attending the 3-day course from April 27, Radix and other participants will undergo thorough classroom instruction and technical sessions on the field of play, utilising players.
CONCACAF Director of Refereeing, Brian Hall, describes the move as a “new and unique approach to training and selecting referees for the Gold Cup which focuses on optimising the preparation from a technical and physical perspective.
He further stated they are committed to a world-class approach to meeting the demands of the Gold Cup.
