Touch Luxembourg is proud to announce Dan Fahy as our new National Director of Referees, and we are equally proud and lucky to have Laurence Cortey volunteer to assist Dan in his role.
Both Dan & Laurence have been keen and key players for RCL Touch for several years and with this playing experience they have a good foundation and knowledge of touch. Furthermore, both have developed greatly as referees in the last 2-3 years, gaining Touch Europe Level 1 Badge accreditation in this time, being lead referees in Luxembourg’s local tournaments, as well as refereeing in several neighbouring country tournaments in France, Belgium, and Germany. Laurence has in fact already refereed at international level being a referee at the European Touch Championships in Nottingham in 2018, an experience which she thoroughly enjoyed and did herself and Luxembourg proud. With this wealth of touch experience, enthusiasm, and dedication, we know all our referees are in good hands with Dan & Laurence at the helm.
In the first few months in their roles Laurence and Dan have already helped numerous developing touch referees and players in Luxembourg attend recent Touch Europe Level 1 and 2 referee courses. Furthermore, they are also key figures in ensuring that all players and referees are fully aware of, understand, and able to adopt the recent rules changes introduced by FIT in their new 5th edition International rules.
They have big plans to help referees and players in Luxembourg develop further in the coming years, and are excited about the upcoming 2022 European Touch Championships.
We’re so happy to have Dan & Laurence on board and am sure we will have more fantastic refereeing news to follow thanks to their handiwork, so watch this space!
