(Late call up). Getting a Grand Final Appointment has to be earned so with all the Wilston Grange Boys getting an appointment it was a fantastic effort. Congratulations Boys – continue to do yourselves proud. But the season doesn’t end there – As the recipient of the “BJ Umpires Junior Coaches Award”, Chris Jardine will be going to Melbourne Umpire a half time game during the 2011 Grand Final on October, 1.
