Football West official Josh Mannella has been appointed for this Sunday’s Hyundai A-League Grand Final between Perth Glory and Sydney FC.
Mannella will be the Fifth Official, or reserve assistant referee, at Optus Stadium. He was an assistant referee for Glory’s penalty shootout win over Adelaide United at HBF Park last Friday night.
Football West Head of Referees Eddie Lennie said: “I am delighted for Josh in receiving this well-deserved honour.
“Josh has worked very hard over the years on the Hyundai A-League panel and these appointments are a fitting reward. We wish him the very best in the Grand Final on Sunday.”
Mannella has been a member of Football West’s top panel of referees since 2011 and joined the Hyundai A-League Assistant Referee panel in the 2009-10 season.
He won the Football West Assistant Referee of the Year award in 2014 and 2017.
