At 18, Luke Xuereb is a recognised assistant referee after completing a course at the MFA Referees Academy.


 “I have officiated more than 100 matches and I can only say that it has been an incredible experience," Xuereb said.


"I was forced to quit playing after suffering a serious injury but I wanted to stay in football because I love sport.”


Tasmarie Busuttil is another Referees Academy graduate who is currently officiating at grassroots level.


“Refereeing is an interesting career," she said.


"I didn’t really know what to expect when I joined the Referees Academy. My friends encouraged me to enrol. There were no female students at the time as we were a small group but nowadays I’m a referee and I have a career in front of me.


"I have learnt a lot during my time at the Referees Academy.”
