Guyana’s FIFA referee Sherwin Moore and Assistant Referee Trevor Porter will officiate at the finals of the Scotiabank CFU Men’s Caribbean Cup tournament scheduled for June 22nd-25th in Martinique.
According to a release from the Guyana Football Federation (GFF), head of the federation’s Refereeing Department Stanley Lancaster said, “It shows that we have the quality referees to officiate at the highest level. We’ve seen Kevin Stephens do his part at the CONCACAF U17 finals in Panama and now we’re seeing Trevor Porter and Sherwin Moore participating in the Scotiabank finals in Martinique.”
He added, “With the developmental programmes that we now have in place, we should see more of our officials moving from the national programme to competing among the best in our region. Congratulations to the two match officials, we offer our complete support and wish them well throughout the tournament.”
The teams competing for the crown of Caribbean Champion are Jamaica, French Guiana, Curacao and Martinique. Jamaica will battle French Guiana, while the hosts will engage Curacao on the 22nd.
The eventual victors will face-off in the final on the 25th, with the resulting losers locking horns in the third place playoff.
The four Caribbean Cup final round teams have already qualified for the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup to be played in July.
