During the autumn and winter months i goal umpire local footy games.

It’s something i’ve been doing for the past 24 years. Although i’ve had 2 and a half years off. 2014 due to my uncle’s passing away from cancer. And from July 2015 after breaking my left elbow severely that required surgery.

People don’t realise that i have such a bad break and they don’t think i would be able to make it back to umpire footy again. I made it back at the start of last year.

I’m back again this year. But will only be doing BFNL u/18’s games and any double headers if Rhys Brehaut gets stuck with numbers.

I don’t mind this as i work 3 days a week at SS Traders here in Ballarat.
