SMJFL Field Umpires playing in finals - 2018
Firstly, CONGRATULATIONS! There is nothing that compares to being part of a team who is in the running to win a premiership.
Secondly, unfortunately this also means that you will NOT be available for selection as a field umpire during the finals series.
Finals players are permitted to act as boundary umpires or goals umpires, but only if their playing time permits.
This policy has been adopted to ensure that players can fully commit to their team during a very special time; and field umpires can be fresh and alert to umpire finals football.
