Barracking for the UmpireBy Andrea Gibbs
What are we willing to sacrifice for the great game?
Following a standout Perth season in 2022, Barracking for the Umpire is set to embark on a regional tour in Western Australia for 2024, and Mandurah is fortunate to be included on the tour.
This family drama tackles head-on the fragility of the human body and the impacts of footy on our players, our family, and our community.
Donnybrook Football Club is set to honour its greatest son – Doug Williams.

All the kids are flying home to join the celebration.
