Nine umpires have earned the chance to officiate in Saturday’s NAB League Boys Grand Final between the Eastern Ranges and Oakleigh Chargers at Ikon Park following strong seasons at state-league level.
Victorian State League and Talent Pathway Umpiring Head Coach Cameron Nash said he was confident the NAB League Boys Grand Final umpiring panel would perform well in the deciding match of the season for the state’s top under-18 competition.
“All the umpires selected for the NAB League Boys Grand Final have umpired some Hard Yakka / Totally Workwear VFL games this season and then umpired during the NAB League Boys Finals Series,” Nash said.
“They are therefore well prepared for the Grand Final and have been appointed based on their consistent seasons and continued development in their umpiring journey.”
