Umpires deserve more applause

Recognition: the teams, Fish Creek and DWWWW applaud as the umpires take centre stage, entering the field after the players, to mark Umpires’ Appreciation Round at the Alberton West Recreation Reserve on the weekend.

Umpires Appreciation Round has been a feature of the football fixture for quite a number of seasons and rightly so. More often than not the umpires attract a lot of negative press from players and spectators alike. Is it any wonder umpiring associations are struggling to recruit when it is seen as such a thankless […]

IT was all over bar even the shouting by half time at Korumburra on Saturday. The mighty Magpies descended on the town and with the likes of former Carlton footballers Thornton and Fisher on board, proved to have too much experience for the fledgling Giants. Bigger bodied and too strong, Dalyston clean bowled its hosts. […]

Just another challenge This game never reached […]

Leongatha back to earth

Up they go: Sale’s Jack Lipman and Leongatha’s Ben Willis compete to win the tap at a stoppage.

SOME people had been penciling in Leongatha for the premiership this year – not any longer. It has been playing some impressive footy that’s for sure but have now learned if you are not fully on your game and a bit of luck goes against you; you are vulnerable. With one win on the board […]
