Happy Friday all,

Hoping all are faring well and venturing outside and getting that much needed sunshine and exercise.

The executive met on Wednesday night and it has been agreed that we will be holding an end of season bbq lunch at the clubrooms next month.

During the luncheon the majority of our traditional awards will also be presented to celebrate and recognise the effort that you the members put in umpiring what was the 2021 SFNL season.

More detailed information will follow shortly

Be well and stay fit,

President Hawk

"often you're seeing men of 50 (years old) plus do the umpiring. So you have to ask the question - where are the young people coming from? where's the next generation of umpires coming from?

I've heard many stories of young umpires being involved and doing one year if they can stick out that one year and then moving away from the game because they feel like pretty average so of reward, the abuse and some of the treatment they get just doesn't really make it a worthwhile and pleasant experience.

The game is big enough is address it and face up to it and try to turn it around and hopefully this incident and event is a watermark in terms of the game. Saying okay - well lets try to shift things a little bit here."

The Toby Green incident has definitely sparked conversation and that is healthy in many ways. It may be that many AFL players and commentators were not as sympathetic as we may like in terms of condemning the action of Green, but it has definitely put the role of the umpire and the umpire shortage issue in the headline and will likely see changes accross the board to limit a repeat incidents. Hopefully this doesn't deter people from putting their hand up and just giving it a go, its not for everyone but it can be a great adventure, competitive, frustrating, challenging but very rewarding. The SFUA has always and continues to work hard and contribute much to local football and hopefully through the discussion today the support for the role of the umpire will grow and people will defy the odds and just give it a go.

A sad end to the season. I would like to pass on behalf of the SFUA executive our appreciation to all involved in delivering a vital service to the football community this year. Although we will not be in a position to celebrate the end of the footy season in our traditional setting, discussions will be held over the next weeks about how and when we can support the umpiring fraternity in preparation for the 2022 season. This will involve some event to provide recognition for the efforts of the 2021 season.

All the best,

President Hawk

Surely when the time is right we can have a get together to celebrate our season and awards

A disappointing and difficult season for the whole football community, whether the leagues or the umpires you have all committed immemse time and energy to try produce another season under very difficult circumstances. Well done to all, in all roles, all levels, hopefully 2022 will bring relief and a time to return to normality to enjoy a new season without disruption.

You have all done your best with a horrible year

Good Afternoon Everyone,

Given the lockdown orders across New South Wales and Victoria, the SFNL board have met and have determined that the finals series for 2021 has been cancelled. A statement about this will be shared with media outlets this afternoon.

I would like to thank everyone who managed to stay with the association throughout all the lockdowns we endured over the season. Season 2021 was not an easy season to be a part of and the roles that everyone played to make season 2021 for the association possible is greatly appreciated.

Planning for season 2022 will soon start to begin and I am very keen to get members' thoughts on ideas that they would like to see introduced next season to either contact Adam or myself. Hopefully season 2022 will bring more success to the association and that we can get through a full season and finals series next year with no interruptions.

Enjoy the offseason and stay safe while in lockdown,
Kind Regards,
Joshua Leske
