Our very own Ayrshire Ref, Ross Haswell had the pleasure of being invited to referee at the Paralympics in Rio, Brazil. Not only did Ross officiate at some of the group stage matches, his performances caught the eyes of officials and led to him being awarded the Gold Medal game between Ukraine and Iran. Congratulations Ross!
We were very fortunate to hear all about his trip to Rio, and see photographs of his time in the sun at our October monthly meeting. We also saw coverage of his gold medal game and some of the goal highlights of the tournament. Below are 2 stories run in the Irvine Herald and a link to a July article from the Daily Record... http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/local-news/stewarton-sfa-referee-ross-haswell-8441965
and here is a link to the best goals of the tournament.
In recognition of his achievements in Rio, Ross was presented with a watch from the Ayrshire Referee Association by our president, Mike Ingram.
