About Riddell Umpires
The Umpires association was formed in 1983 under the title of Riddell District Football League Umpires Association (RDFLUA). Prior to 1983 the RDFL was serviced by Field Umpires supplied by the VFL (AFL) “country grade”. Goal and Boundary Umpires were supplied locally from 1968 and 1971 respectively. From 1975 they were managed by Keith Cook. There was also an unofficial group of Field Umpires who umpired junior games that were not supplied umpires by the VFL. This was managed by Rod Baguley.
