Lachlan Brown and his twin brother Ethan will both be participating in this year’s W&DJFL Grand Final, but will both see it from different perspectives.
Youngster Lachie has been a newly appointed green shirt umpire this year in the Warragul and District Junior Football League.
His dedication to the craft allowed him to be selected by the Gippsland Umpires Association to officiate as one of the umpires in the Under 12 Grand Final, where Garfield will play Ellinbank.
His brother Ethan will also participate in the match, playing for Garfield, the team Lachlan was once on.
The twelve year old twins have a deep passion for the game, with Lachlan taking his umpiring very seriously and showing no favouritism.
Ethan has had decisions go against him when his brother has umpired him.
Not often is this sort of coincidence found but it is reminiscent of Brad and Chris Scott, coaches of North Melbourne and Geelong respectively.
One day the Brown brothers may assail the big leagues as sportsman and official.
To see what the future may bring, attend the W&DJFL Grand Finals on Sunday the 6thfrom 10:00am at Drouin Recreation Reserve.
