FIFA has announced the Referee and Assistant Referee List for 2021, with Tashun Simons named to the list yet again.
Back in December 2017, the Bermuda Football Association held an event at the Clyde Best Center of Excellence to mark a special presentation of the FIFA Referee Badges to newly appointed FIFA Referee Tashun Simons.
Bermuda Football Association Chairman of Referee’s Crenstant Williams referring to Simons said, “2020 was a challenging year, to say the least as it pertained to refereeing here in Bermuda. The pressure was immense to ensure that you remained motivated and remained on the list. You weathered the storm and then some.”
“There were lots of bad days but there were also plenty excellent days,” continued Williams.
Williams went on to say, “The culmination of it all occurred this morning when I received the email confirmation that you have been accepted on the FIFA list as an AR for 2021.”
Williams concluded, “Sir Grimes, today is one of those days when I wish I could just call and say ..... I just want to thank everyone that has played a part in this journey with Tashun. Onwards and upwards.
Bermuda, here is your FIFA AR for 2021.”
