Chamberlain Lends A Hand

Talented young umpires will have the chance to learn from the likes of Ray Chamberlain through the 2014 Mates Program.

SFL umpires Andrew Scott, Luke Porter and Kai Allison are lucky enough to be involved in the 2014 Mates Program and they are keen to learn from the best.

“It’s a huge opportunity to learn from someone at the highest level and to be able to understand how they got to where they are now,” Scott said.

“I’m not too sure yet if Ray will get to one of our games but it would be great to get some feedback.”

Scott said he would also tap into Chamberlain’s experience when it comes to the all-important bounce.

“The bouncing of the ball isn’t something that I’ve had a lot of experience with so it’s probably something I’ll speak to Ray about.”

“I’m keen to go as far as I can with umpiring and obviously bouncing is a pretty important skill.”

“So I’ll definitely speak to Ray and ask him how handle the crowd pressure and things like that.”
