The Volta Regional Football Association (RFA) on Thursday January 10 met the executives of the Volta Regional Referees Association of Ghana (RAG) at the RFA secretariat in Ho.
The meeting was aimed at strengthening the existing relationship between the two entities, towards the development of football in region.
Among issues discussed were, challenges confronting RAG-Volta at the regional and national level.
The leadership of RAG- Volta seized the opportunity to state their concerns.
Interestingly, Mr. Daniel Agbogah, chairman of the Regional Football Association, is a member of the Referees Committee at the GFA.
Mr. Agbogah who reflected enthusiasm and sanguinity about the development of football in the region, asked the executives not to be discouraged by the happenings.
He was optimistic about football as a sport in the region, stressing that the region would produce quality that would dominate in play and officiating respectively.
“I am hopeful that these engagements would build a bridge between RAG and RFA, which is the best thing to do”.
“More so, RAG won’t be seen as an autonomous body, It is my wish that Volta would dominate in play and officiating,” Mr. Agbogah stated.
Mr. Agbogah maintained his earlier assertion at the meeting with Young Referees last Monday that the challenges so stated “will enable the RFA to develop a strategic plan for young and upcoming referees in the Volta Region”.
Mr. Agbogah stressed that refereeing was indivisible from the development of football and that he was in a hurry to see the Regional Executive Council of the RFA constituted for frequent and similar engagements.
