A Night for the Yarra Umpires16th September, 2021
Last night the YJFL held the annual Umpire Presentation Night online for the first time.
A night full of guests, interviews and awards, last night’s presentation event had it all. Hosted by Jon and Ben Thiele, two of the YJFL’s most experienced umpires, it was an occasion to recognise those who make our game possible.
We’d like to thank AFL Umpires Matt Stevic and Nick Brown for joining us and wish Matt all the best for the AFL Grand Final next week.
Also give thanks to Andrew Talbot from Umpire AFL, YJFL Vice President Ishbel Moodie and YJFL CEO Tim Murray for joining to give out a message and present awards.
Congratulations also go out to Surrey Park JFC for winning the AFL Umpire Engagement Award.
Thanks to all that joined and interacted during the event and we look forward to seeing you next year in season 2022.
