LAGOS – The Nigeria Referees Association (NRA) on Saturday said experience from international training tour in the UK by match officials, would improve performance in the 2015 Glo Premier League (GPL).

NAN reports that 11 top referees participated in the program that was bankrolled by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) during the outgoing year.
Maude said, “the two-week program took place at the English FA High Performance training center, St. George Park.
“We learnt a lot, it was a refreshing program that was needed. There will be lots of improvement in our officiating come next season.
“The first batch has gone; more will still go. So, nobody will be left out.
“This training has exposed us to various structures of work and communication in the course of officiating.
“We want to appreciate the NFF for their efforts in ensuring that we have the much needed exposure.
“I believe other structures of football will improve with more exposure”. (NAN)
