SENIOR DEBUTS - SEASON 2022

Congratulations to James Robinson & Jones Bates on their Senior debuts in Rd 5 this season!

James Robinson: This is James first year umpiring and he's been working really hard at training. He's always been up there with the top runners at every training session. He's throw ins have been improving, getting more consistent and also getting some nice height as the season goes on. He's been developing really well under the guidance of junior umpire coordinator Josh Lee and boundary umpire coach Tyler Garraway. Well done James!

A DAY TO REMEMBER

Last Saturday was a day to remember for reasons we wouldn't even thought of when we went out to the field to start the game. Going into the game we knew it would be Steve Flory last match and Riley Glare seniors debut.

Everything changed in the first quarter when Jason unfortunately sustained an injury and had to go off the field. So our senior boundary Nathan Bruinhout put his hand up to senior field umpire (and also make his seniors field debut too). He's been doing the junior games this season under the guidance of Josh Lee and support from our experienced field umpires.

So that means our 4 boundary system turned into a 3 for one and a half quarters. After half time - we went back in history with Andrew (Elvis) Dowdy running in boundary - first time since the 2013 GF. He's a very experienced boundary with heaps of grand finals under his belt.

So with Andrew (Elvis) running boundary. Gavin Slade put his hand up to do goal umpiring who also is a very experienced umpire with plenty of grand finals experience too.

Some people might not know this but there's plenty of teamwork involved in umpiring. And also supporting and helping each other. Great work team!

JUNIORS EVENT - TENPIN BOWLING

Great turnout by all juniors that were able to attend today's event. It was great to see everyone enjoying themselves. A bit of friendly competitiveness between some participants! Saw some very creative and effective bowling techniques 😎 (looking at you Archer and Cooper!). Everyone bowled very well and some were lucky enough to get a spare or strike (and some, both!). I hope everyone had fun today, please see below for links of the scores.

Thank you Sunraysia Tenpin for your hospitality and also Domino’s Mildura for making & delivering delicious pizzas!

GAMEDAY - ROUND 17 - Anti-Family Violence Recognition round

This weeks edition of Whistlestop - tinyurl.com/yz6yvw5p

With only 2 rounds to go of the regular season we are more than happy to appoint 2 lads to their first senior games this week. After putting in the hard yards all season and working hard at both training and the games we would like to congratulate Riley Glare and Levi McClelland on making their senior debut this weekend. You both should be very proud of what you have achieved.

Today is senior field umpire Steve Flory last game (Imperials v Irymple) before he goes over to New Zealand for a new adventure. He's been umpiring with us the last 4-5 years, he's been a great club person for the SFUA and helped with umpire development. Will miss your banter mate. Good luck for todays game and best wishes for the future!

With finals selections just around the corner make sure you give your all and make us and yourself proud.

Don't forgot to go past Turtles bar (located in the SFUA Rooms) after the Seniors games this evening for some light refreshments. Food will also be available, Saturday night menu - tinyurl.com/bdejkeeh

Also Members Draw tonight at 6.30pm (only eligible for members 18 years old and over) - Winner tonight gets $75 - Member needs to be present to collect the winnings.
