2016 sees some new faces among the refereeing ranks with most of them being newly accredited whistle-blowers thanks to the efforts of our Provider in Frank Leonard.
Last Sunday week we had the face-to-face course at Berkeley conducted by Frank with the support of Mitch James, Scott Murphy and Steve Brown where we put seventeen new referees through the course. They are William Cambourn, Dylan Boyd (yes, another one, brother of Bryce and Brayden), Cooper Winklebauer, Callum Blight, Clay Brett, Jackson Valk, Cooper Corcoran, Wil Heffernan, Jayden Tye, Ethan & Noah Galway (grandsons of Steve Brown), Brock Sepulveda, Jhet Steyger, Callum Reh, Emily-Jo Smith (who will referee in Gp 7), Michael Innes and Billy Parremore (who has returned to us after a break).
Already Callum Blight, William Cambourn, Ethan & Noah Galway, Wil Heffernan, Michael Innes, Billy Parremore, Brock Sepulveda, Jhet Steyger, Jayden Tye and Jackson Valk have joined our Association with some of them already having controlled their first games on the weekend.
As well s these newly accredited referees we also have a new member who joins us from Group 7 in the form of Paul Lees who we will welcome into our senior ranks. Paul has considerable experience in refereeing seniors and will be a great asset to us in our own senior competition. We did a trade with Group 7 as long term Illawarra member, Larry Kent has left us this year for our southern cousins.
So if you see any of these new members around then please make them welcome into our Association just as you were welcomed when you first started. Give them the help and assistance that you would expect to receive if you arrived in a new place for the first time.
