Round 10 – Umpires Appreciation Round

July 12, 2019

Put Simply – Without the umpires our game could not proceed.

As we head on into the pointy end of the season, it’s time to recognise the contribution that our umpires make week in week out.

It can be a thankless role, which is all the more reason for us individually and collectively to take the time to thank them.

Luke and Phil Murdoch (FJFC President)

Our Club and others have a number of children that take on an official umpiring role either on the field or boundary. It is an endeavour we encourage and support. Potential junior umpires take their cues from us as coaches, parents, supporters and fellow players and we can set the tone of encouragement by our actions.

So this weekend, think twice about offering that gratuitous advice and instead pat the umpire on the back and say, Thankyou!
