Expanding the family boundaries

THE McGregor family shared a special moment last Saturday at Macarthur with mother, Kath and her two kids, Emily and Ryan all umpiring a game of senior football together.

Both Emily and Ryan have been involved with the Western District Umpires Association (WDUA) for several years now, but round four of the Mininera and District Football League (MDFL) provided a new experience.
