SUNDAY 14 MAY 2023

As part of AFL Community Umpire Week, on behalf of the league I would like to acknowledge and thank a few people.

Firstly, Umpire AFL for this initiative. Every year our league looks forward to this round to celebrate our Umpire Academy, and this year was no exception. A big thank you to the AFL Umpires who attended Moorleigh Reserve for training last Wednesday evening:

· Chris Donlon

· Simon Meredith

· Nic McGinness

· Josh Furman

· Ian Burrows

· Shane Thiele

and a special mention to Nic McGinness and Brett Rosebury, who both umpired a SMJFL game this weekend. We really appreciate your time and support.

To our Major Partner, OpenCorp, who’s continued support of the SMJFL Umpire Academy has helped us to continue to develop and nurture the next generation of Umpires in a safe and inclusive environment, we thank you.

And lastly, to the entire SMJFL community, our Member Clubs, the players and most of all, our Umpires, who all celebrated and acknowledged the wonderful work our Umpires do to ensure everyone can play footy.
