Practice makes perfect, says Natonga

Mr. Saby Natonga, VFF Vice President calls on the 33 referees who attended the FIFA MA Referee course in Teouma last week that their certificate is for them to keep at home, but they must apply what they have achieved in the field.
"I assure you, there is nothing more than knowing the rules and it should be on your must-read list if you want to become a better referee", he said.
"The more often you read and understand the Laws of the game, and practice it day by day, the better you will be. Practice makes perfect", he said.
"Your certificate is for your house but the most important element now is how you apply the laws of the game during a soccer match."
"You must prepare yourself before taking matches. It is important to always keep fit and doing exercises, plus group trainings are very important for you", he added.
Mr. Natonga concluded his special remarks by encouraging all the referees to stay strong and take their challenging role with pride so to gain respect from fan's and also for the betterment of the sport.
"I tell you fans will go crazy because football is dear to their hearts. Football is number one sports in Vanuatu, but I encourage you referees to stay on track and be strong".
Mr. Natonga also thanked the referees for their hard work and their efforts for their work and continuous support to develop football in their Member Associations.
