Federal Capital Territory Referee Council member Hannah Elaigwu has been voted the NWFL Premiership Referee for December.
The FIFA accredited referee earned the accolade on the back of an impressive performance in the NWFL Premiership week one encounter between Nasarawa Amazons and FC Robo Queens.
A game the ‘Lagos Landladies’ won by a lone goal and she was adjudged to be very fair with her decisions all through the game, according to the assessors at the stadium.
The monthly award which is proudly sponsored by the NFF 1st Vice President Barrister Seyi Akinwumi is aimed at honouring women referees who have strong work ethics, have knowledge on the rules of the game and are positive role models. The winner will go home with a cash prize of N25000.
A team of women football experts and panelists voted based on reports gathered by assessors all around various match centres.
