Umpires in need of support

THE Western District Umpires Association (WDUA) is asking for help ahead of the 2021 football season with a shortage of umpires set to cause issues.

After a year off with no games played last year, the WDUA has seen many former members either move on, retire or unable to re-commit.

While this is an occurrence every season, the problem this time surrounds the association’s inability to recruit throughout 2020.
