Langley United Appoint Head of Officials
It is with great pleasure that Langley United announce the appointed of Rubin Smilev as our Head of Officials.Arnout Stams our 1st VP Technical said “This position is a result of our growing player development program. Each week we have many games that are not supported by referees and many times parents or coaches have to fill this role. With the appointment of Rubin, we now have the opportunity to run our own in-house referee development program on a weekly basis, Rubin will be seen on fields during games assisting and mentoring our referees both youth and adult, we are very please about this appointment”
I personally would like to welcome Rubin to our LUSA family, Rubin is a highly respected individual with in the soccer fraternity, he is a highly qualified individual and I look forward to him creating a solid officials development program that not only produces the best officials, but also attracts new referees to our program.
