Billy Mitchell Appointed Director of Coaching / Field Coach for the BFUA

The Ballarat Football Umpires Association (BFUA) have annouced thier appointment of former Riddell Umpire Billy Mitchell to the role of Director of Coaching / Field Coach.

Billy takes with him to the BFUA a wealth of experience having held positions with Riddell Umpires (RU) incuding Junior Coach, Assistant Senior Coach and Fitness Advisor. Billy has also umpired multiple Senior Grand Finals and represented RU at interstate carnivals and Senior interleague macthes.

We see Billy's appointment as not only a testament to his knowledge of the game, skill, ability and interpersonal skills both on and off the field but also to the coaching, experience and environment at RU that have been the basis of his umpiring journey up to now.

The RU family will miss Billy, having said that we wish him every success in this next step of his personal development and umpiring journey, we have no doubt that the BFUA will benefit greatly from his appointment.
