    The Parramatta Referees Association continues to serve as a great breeding ground for up & coming referees with Jason Ndeira & Joseph Eid officially announced as members of the Junior Representative Squad for 2014. Both gentlemen have received appointments for this weekend’s first round of the Harold Matthews competition. Jason & Joseph continue the trend of Parramatta Referees who progress into the Junior Reps squad with this being the third year in succession that Parramatta has had added new members to the squad. It is exciting to think of the large number of prospects from Parramatta pushing to make the step up in 2015. Currently Parramatta have five representatives in the squad with Jason & Joe being the newest additions.

    The hard working & persistent Jason Ndeira has been appointed as a touch judge for the Harold Matthews fixture between the Canterbury Bulldogs & the Canberra Raiders at Belmore Sportsground. For a man who probably thought his opportunity to progress further in refereeing was just about over, Jason has fought tooth & nail to ensure that he made the most of the opportunity presented to him. It is fantastic to see Jason make it into the Junior Reps as he has given so much to refereeing in Parramatta without receiving too much credit for his contribution.

    Joe Eid has been appointed as a touch judge for the Harold Matthews fixture between the Cronulla Sharks & the St.George Dragons at Remondis Stadium. In his first season trialling for the Junior Reps, Joe Eid has impressed, showing a new level of maturity with his approach to his training, match preparation & training. He has shown great improvement in his fitness results throughout the trial period.

    Congratulations to both men on their achievement. We look forward to seeing your ongoing development & success throughout this season as well as in years to come.
    Other Parramatta Referees to feature in round one of the Junior Reps season are Patrick Mackey who will referee the SG Ball match between Manly & South Sydney, Chris Chalkley who has been appointed touch judge for the SG Ball match between North Sydney & Balmain whilst Daniel Luttringer will patrol the touchline in the Bulldogs vs Raiders SG Ball match.

    Robert Pahulu

    The Rookie of the Year award is awarded to a referee who during their first season shows potential and significant achievement. In 2013, Parramatta Referees recruited over 30 new referees. However one referee was seen to be the cream of the crop with Robert Pahulu being chosen as the Rookie of the Year for 2013. Robert has settled into refereeing quickly, making his way to mod football and finishing the season with an U9/’s Grand Final. Congratulations Robert and we look forward to your continual development.

    Referees Referee

    Daniel Luttringer

    The Referees Referee is voted upon by the active members at the season’s end to highlight a referee who they believe has performed well and been a joy to run with. Daniel Luttringer was voted the Referees Referee for 2013. Daniel exhibits an irrepressible enthusiasm for refereeing both on and off the field. He epitomises the culture of Parramatta Referees as recognised by his fellow referees.

    Junior Referee of the Year

    Robert Morey & Robert Pahulu

    The Junior Referee of the Year recognises a junior referee who is deemed to be the best performing throughout the season. In 2013, the appointments panel could not split Robert Morey and Robert Pahulu, who were named joint Junior Referee of the Year. Both softly spoken young gentlemen off the field, they have let their high quality of performances on the field do the talking in 2013. Robert Morey is in his fourth year of refereeing and continues to show plenty of potential for the future, this year refereeing the U14/3’s Grand Final. Rob Pahulu’s achievement is particularly significant as this was his first season of refereeing. Rob Pahulu quickly moved up the ranks into mod football during 2013 due to his willingness to listen and learn as well as his application to training each week.


    Ernie Bull Trainer of the Year

    Daniel Luttringer

    The Trainer of the Year Award is named after the late Ernie Bull who was the trainer and a life member of the Association. The award is presented to a referee who turns up to training every week with the right attitude, doesn’t complain about the methods used and leads by example. Daniel Luttringer was the Trainer of the Year for 2013. He showed great dedication to training and put 100% effort into every session.

    Bob Jones Most Improved Referee

    Ben McMurray

    The Bob Jones Trophy for the most improved referee is presented to a referee who has shown exceptional improvement throughout the course of the season, taking their refereeing to a new level. Ben McMurray was the worthy recipient of the award for 2013. Ben made his C grade debut during season 2013 and refereed 16’s & 17’s football on a regular basis. He was rewarded for his hard work with a trip to Bathurst to referee the under 18’s in which he performed very well. Although injury struck him towards the end of the season, he has developed a firm foundation to develop upon in future years.

    Patron’s Trophy

    Chris Chalkley

    Chris was appointed to the 2013 A Grade First Division Grand Final between Wentworthville Magpies and All Saints Toongabbie played at Ringrose Oval. The appointment to the Grand Final brings the status of being the number one referee in the Parramatta district. This was Chris’ 1stA1’s Grand Final after previous C Grade Grand Finals. Chris’ performances on the field throughout 2013 put him in good stead to start the Finals Series in the number one position and from there he did not let the spot go, refereeing some difficult fixtures very well. The referee who is appointed to the A1’ Grand Final receives the Jack Argent Patron’s Trophy. Chris was awarded the shield by current co-patrons Max Dunn and Ian McCall.
