Three Guyanese match officials have been selected to officiate at ongoing Central American and Caribbean (CAC) Games being held in Barranquilla, Colombia from July 18th–31st.
The officials are Referees Gladwyn Johnson and Maurees Skeete and Assistant Referee Kevin Stephens.
According to Stanley Lancaster, Head of the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) Referring Department, “This is the second time, if my memory serves me correctly, that match officials from Guyana have been invited to participate in the CAC Games.” He further said, “This is certainly encouraging and shows the confidence bestowed on the match officials from Guyana to sustain the rigors of competition.
This opportunity will also contribute to enhanced technical development considering the expected networking and level of competition.”
The female leg of the CAC Games began on July 18th and will conclude on July 30th, while the male competition runs from July 19th–31st.
This year’s event features 38 nations competing in 40 disciplines. Among the major sports are athletics, field hockey, football, cycling, swimming and beach volleyball.
