Football West News

Two Football West match officials will be in Sydney next week hoping to book a place on the Hyundai A-League assistant referees panel for the 2018-19 season.

Joshua Nixon and Matthew Southern will run the line in a National Premier Leagues NSW match and be assessed as part of the A-League Possibles program.

Football West Manager Referees Eddie Lennie said: “Matt was on the panel last year and will looking to impress again, while this is the first time for Josh.

“He has been performing well in the NPL WA and deserves this opportunity.”

Football West already has two assistant referees on the Hyundai A-League Probables list for next season, Josh Mannella and Arvin Shanmuganathan. Both officiated in the competition last season.

And we have one referee on the Probables list. Adam Fielding has refereed in every Hyundai A-League season since 2014-15.
