Finley on his way to Sydney

Congratulations to Finley Magee who has been selected to go to Sydney with the squad from AFL Goldfields. The location and matches have been changed from Townsville / Mackay to encourage a more compeitive game for the players and umpire. When asked about how he feels to be selected for the trip and the change of location from Far North Queensland Finley said. "The first word that springs to mind is exciting!. I feel extremely priviliged to have been given this amazing opportunity. I think overall it should provide the players and umpires alike with a more beneficial and enjoyable expereince".

Finley will be lucky enough to umpire two games during his time in Sydney, he will be officiating the AFL Goldfields squad against the Sydney Swans Academy team and the North Shore Bombers. Finley will be representing the Riddell Umpires Association, he does so very 'proudly' and looking forward to some "good, hard compeittive footy". 

Finley will be lucky enough to attend the Round 16 GWS Vs Brisbane AFL match at Spotless Stadium, he will get to meet the AFL Umpires and umpire coaches on the day & Finley will get to attend a State umpiring training and review session. Finley will recieve an AFL Club expereince where he will get to visit a Sydney Swans training session with coach and/or player exporsure.

Finally Finley will get to have a Manly Ferry expereince as well as Sydney CBD expereince.

It will be a very fast 6 days for Finley but we are sure he will have a great time and enjoy every minute. Stay tuned as Finley will look to fundraise his trip and it would mean a lot to him if you could support him.  

Congratulations Finley.
