"If you want to get to the next level you have to go for a run" Matt Bellina reflects on the support he's received through his 150 QAFL Senior Games
Matt Bellina is set to umpire his 150th QAFL Senior match this weekend when Surfers Paradise taken on Redlands at Sir Bruce Small Park . Matt a Brisbane-based umpire, shared some insights into his umpiring journey. When asked how he first got into umpiring, Matt explained that he began in 2007, when he offered to help out his local footy club, Moorooka. After making his way to AFL Brisbane Juniors in 2009, he has since umpired in a number of high-profile games, including two QAFL Senior Grand Finals (in 2017 and 2022), two QAFL Reserves Grand Finals (in 2016 and 2021), and three AFLW games in 2017. This year, he has been given the opportunity to umpire the Under 18's national championships, which will be his first national championships.
When asked about the mentors and influences who have helped him along the way, Matt cited a number of people who have played a crucial role in his development as an umpire. Ryan McConnell, who encouraged him to get fitter during a few off-seasons, has been a major influence, as has Tim Neville, who initially believed in him to go deeper into September and then back it up and run the initial season of AFLW. Chris Fawcett, who has been in and out of Matt's umpiring career since he started with the HP group, has also been a significant mentor. Ashley Dunstan, who went from on-field mentor to QAFL coach, has been a big influence in fine-tuning Matt's umpiring.
Last but certainly not least, Steph (Wife), has been a massive influence on Matt's umpiring over the years with her continuous support and comments of "if you want to get to the next level you have to go for a run" when it was 37 degrees in the middle of the off-season.
Congratulations again Matt
Mitchell Blashak is set to celebrate his 50th QAFL game this weekend when Labrador take on Redland at Cooke Murphy Oval. Mitchell, known simply as ‘Shak’, made his QAFL debut in Round 3 2018, officiating Wilston Grange vs Morningside. Despite a nervous start, shanking the opening bounce, Shak quickly found his footing and has been a reliable presence on the field ever since.
Reflecting on his journey, Shak emphasised the importance of constantly learning and seeking guidance from the right people. "You're never done learning," he said, "ask questions from the right people and always reflect on yourself to improve the best you can." Shak’s dedication to skill development is evident at each training session, resulting in a reputation as one of the league’s best bouncers. His on-field moments of joy come from executing the perfect bounce, or as Shak refers to it, “putting up darts”.
The pursuit of improvement makes Shak a natural leader within any group setting, whether he be running on-field or assisting the team while injured. Sam Somerville, current VFL umpire and running mate in Shak’s debut, saw his leadership qualities shine from the very beginning, “He was quickly accepted into the group as a leader in the Academy. That [leadership] showed when he did the matchday observing in QAFL when he was injured.”
Now in the VFL Development Squad himself, Shak credits his success to the coaches who have supported him along the way, singling out Aaron Hall for special praise. "I just remember the push you to your limits attitude, that self-drive he gave you to be better".
We have no doubt that Shak will continue to be a valuable asset to the QAFL and competitions above for many seasons to come.
Congratulations Shak on game number 50!
Tom Gordon is set to make his QAFL Seniors debut this Saturday, appointed to the Wilston Grange vs Sherwood showdown. Tom's journey began in 2014, honing his natural skills in the Brisbane Juniors and later the QFA, before finally earning the opportunity to officiate the 2022 QFA Division One Grand Final.
Community Umpire Head Coach, Dean Armstrong sung Tom’s praises and reflected on his desire to be the best; “Tom’s attitude was second to none when it came to training and also game day, his preparation and willingness to learn was fantastic.”
The news of the appointment has Tom “pumped”, clearly showing us his excitement for the task at hand on Saturday
The night before the game, Tom can be found glued to the TV, watching the footy while enjoying family bolognaise night. Come game day, his focus, dedication, and countless hours of training has put him in the best position possible for a ripping debut.
Congratulations Gordo, we hope you have a sensational match!
Matthew (Youngy) Young made his AFL debut at Carrara Stadium on Sunday, umpiring the Gold Coast Suns vs Geelong Cats Round 3 AFL match.
Melbourne has been home for Youngy since 2015, umpiring in the VFL, forging a path to the AFL List. Queensland though, will always be home, having started his football journey playing for Jindalee Jaguars. Youngy’s first game playing Australian Rules, was officiated by a first game umpire, our very own VFL Field Umpire Coach, Chris “Farra” Fawcett.
Youngy’s officiating journey began umpiring club football at Jindalee, in 2006, before moving onto Brisbane Juniors. Some of Youngy’s fellow umpiring mates at the time were future AFL umpires Alex Whetton and James Strybos, VFL umpire Chris Melin and state league umpires Ryan Downes and Tyler “Higgo” Higson.
Youngy was considering giving up umpiring before it really got started. This changed following an invite to the State Umpiring Development Squad led by the passionate, quirky personality, Nic “Palmy” Palmer.
Palmy ran things a bit differently. The precocious aforementioned names were on the journey together forming lifelong friendships. Youngy grins broadly when asked to recollect a particular “training” night organised by Palmy.
“One night, we thought we were doing something to do with umpiring, Palmy told us to be at this place.
“He took us ball room dancing, like lessons!
“We were matched up with these older women and we were doing ball room dancing with them.” Youngy recalls.
“Palmy’s mantra was to get out of your comfort zone.
“Get comfortable being uncomfortable.
“It was character building for us, to get ourselves out of our shells.” Youngy surmised.
Youngy made his NEAFL debut in 2012, umpiring two finals in 2012 and 2013. Sitting the bench for the 2013 NEAFL Northern Conference Grand Final, well-known Queensland names, Aaron Hall, Andrew Stephens, and Jason Baldwin (7th state league grand final) the running umpires.
2014 was somewhat a year of stagnation in the rapid rise thus far. Former AFL boundary umpire, Grant Kent encouraged Youngy to make the move down to Victoria to give VFL Football a crack in a different environment.
With no job lined up or family in Melbourne, Youngy made the leap of faith to follow his AFL dream. Youngy was able to live with fellow Queensland umpire Andrew Stephens who was already on the AFL List at the time.
Queensland State League Field umpires coach in 2013-14, Cameron Nash had moved into the Head Coach role in the VFL in 2015, coinciding with Youngy’s move south. This connection helped to ease the stresses of transitioning into a new environment from interstate. A successful first year in Victoria, Youngy umpired the 2015 TAC Cup Grand Final.
The following years, Youngy dealt with consistent injuries, the worst a 12-week layoff in 2019 due to a grade 3 hamstring tear.
We all remember COVID lockdowns, Victoria having particularly long lockdown stints. After years of injuries, niggles and not getting a full, consistent season, Youngy used the time off as a line in the sand moment.
“I thought, ‘Do I want to keep getting injured or am I going to do something to change it.’” Youngy reflected.
Youngy sourced expert knowledge from fitness coaches, worked to strengthen specific areas of their body which were continually breaking down and started training the house down. The months of training during COVID lockdowns in 2020 and 2021 translated to significant improvement in fitness and strength. Youngy improved his 10km run time from more than 40 minutes (still very impressive) to an elite 35 minutes.
Asked for one area which has helped them prepare and be ready for a spot on the AFL List. Maybe surprisingly, it is not the improved fitness and injury free years but prioritising off field improvement and knowledge of the laws.
“I used to think it was just fitness and the rest would take care of itself.
“The last 4-5 years, I have spent the equal amount of time watching vision, revising laws, following up with coaches.
“Honestly, the last couple of years, seeking clarity from coaches and asking questions has been more important than my fitness gains.” Youngy said.
Looking toward officiating in an AFL match for the first time was a mix of excitement and nerves.
“Overriding excitement for sure, certainly a bit of nerves.
“It will be a proud moment, I know what I have put in, over the last 17,18 years and what it has taken to get there.” Youngy said days before their debut match.
It is in a way, completing the circle for Youngy, having made their NEAFL debut on the Gold Coast in 2012, beginning the umpiring journey at Jindalee Jaguars, umpiring his first AFL match in Queensland just feels right.
“It gives me a sense of comfort that I am doing it back home.
“Even though, I haven’t lived there for 8 years now, I am proud that I still have a lot of friends that I am close to in Brisbane.
“I mean it is almost like all the pieces of the puzzle have come together perfectly, the stars have aligned.” Youngy reflected.
Congratulations on a successful debut Matt and all the best for your career, we will be supporting you along the journey.

Daniel Furze has made a remarkable journey in his umpiring career, from starting as a club umpire in Umpire4Fun in 2018 to making his QAFL umpiring debut in 2023. After umpiring the Under 14 Division 3 Grand Final in 2021, Furze joined the QAFL Umpiring Academy in 2022 and immediately made an impact through his high work ethic.
Furze was selected to umpire the 2022 Colts Grand Final, a great achievement that showed his dedication and hard work paid off. However, he was in Japanese class at school when he found out about his QAFL debut, a surprise that he did not expect in round 1. Despite the unexpected news, Furze was excited to take on the challenge and said, "I've really been striving to get there, really been building up to something."
QAFL Academy Coach David Grogan is thrilled of Furze’s elevation saying, “he has always ticked a lot of favourable boxes as a young umpire – committed, intelligent, highly coachable; but it’s also been his humility and selflessness that has impressed”.
Asked about the secret to his round 1 success Furze reflected, “Hard work pays off. If you put in the effort, it will pay off at the end of the day”.
Before the game you can expect him to be pumping up to the tune of Call Me by Blondie before walking out for his highly anticipated debut.
We can’t wait to see Daniel in action this weekend when Redland-Victoria Point take on Noosa, 2pm at Totally Workwear Park. Well done Furzey!

Andrew (Andy) Adair and James (Jimmy) Strybos have been elevated to the AFL Field Umpire List. Former Brisbane Juniors and NEAFL umpire, Matthew Young also joins the AFL list in 2023 having relocated to Melbourne in 2015 for work commitments. The trio join former Brisbane Junior umpires, Andrew Stephens and Alex Whetton on the list. With five Queenslanders now on the AFL field umpire list it is a testament to the strength of Queensland umpiring.
Andrew and James have spent much of their journey on the talent pathway side by side, becoming AFL rookies in 2018. Both have had to overcome disappointments, setbacks, and hurdles. Years of high quality, consistent umpiring have built a body of work matching AFL standard.
Andy joined the community umpiring group from Brisbane Juniors in 2014. That year Andy was presented with State Umpiring Academy heritage number 1 (there have now been 130 umpires through the program) in the revamped program run by Aaron Hall. From there, Andy progressed rapidly through the ranks earning the moniker “Golden Child” by former State Umpiring Manager, James Waldorff (Duffy). Andy was seemingly, always destined for higher honours. Since becoming a rookie, Andy was on the cusp of elevation to the AFL list for a few years, having first interviewed at the end of 2019. Being so close to a dream, can come with its own difficulties, maintaining the work ethic to perform consistently at an elite level.
Jimmy’s journey has been one of perseverance, near misses and redeveloping his body and mindset to make it at the elite level. Debuting in state league (NEAFL) football in 2012, Jimmy umpired his first state league grand final in 2016, remaining near the pinnacle of Queensland umpiring since that breakthrough.
Andy and Jimmy had interviews with the AFL late last year. They described the experience as more of a get to know you as a person, discussing strengths and weaknesses etc. than an actual interview.
Following a successful 2022 culminating in the 2022 VFL Grand Final and VFL Umpire of the year, Andy didn’t have to wait long for his chance with several spots opening up on the AFL list. In late October, Andy’s dream became a reality. Phone calls from Jenno (Michael Jennings – AFL Field Umpire Coach) and Chippa (Adam Davis - AFL Umpiring List & Talent Manager) notifying Andy of the news took a while to sink in.
“It is a bit of a surreal feeling. For myself, it has been a dream for a long time, for it to materialise, it is quite surreal” Andy reflected.
In December, an additional spot opened on the list, Jimmy received a phone call whilst on school holidays on the Sunshine Coast asking if he could interview.
The week before Christmas, Jimmy received the phone call confirming his dream would become a reality.
“I was flying on cloud nine, I can’t believe it has happened, especially with all of the ups and downs over my career and journey.” Jimmy said.
Jimmy and Andy attended the AFL Umpires pre-season camp recently in Coffs Harbour. Spending time with the other umpires on the list, gave both an opportunity for their achievements to sink in and look forward to the upcoming season.
Immersing themselves with the group of experienced household names, including Matt Stevic and Brett Rosebury. The theme of the camp was “Belonging”.
“The one thing that stood out to me on camp, there are no real Alphas, there are definitely leaders, but everyone got on like a house on fire.
“I felt right at home, on the first night, it was fantastic.” Andy said.
Being elevated onto the AFL list in the same year has made the process extra special. The duo were stoked for one another, excited to continue sharing this unique journey together.
“Just push each other to be the best that we can, to hopefully push us both to the highest levels of AFL football.
“Now we are on the list together, I would love to see Andy get finals and go further” Jimmy said.
To go from a step below the AFL to making the list requires significant self-development, overcoming hurdles over the journey and finding a way to consistently perform to an elite standard. Andy and Jimmy have both faced these challenges and grown not only as umpires but as people in the past few years.
Andy has a couple of key messages that have shaped his journey.
“Taking your opportunities when they are given to you, just running with it, making them your own and putting 100% effort in.” Andy explained.
Andy had the opportunity to become an AFL rookie in 2018 when Alex Whetton was elevated to the AFL list following Chris Kamolin’s retirement.
The first couple of years on the rookie list, Andy admitted he took the position for granted, cruising along, thinking the next step would just happen. Andy had overcome a stress fracture in his lower leg in early 2021, missing the AFLW season and much of the VFL season. The extra motivation from missing opportunities in 2021 and a change in mindset propelled Andy to new heights in 2022.
“A lot of it is taking ownership of your game and performances.
“Whether it is reviewing each of my games, each of my errors. What was the root cause of that error, what could I have done to prevent it.”
“Even things like, I need to work on my change of pace.
“Last year, I spent a lot of time working with Farra (Chris Fawcett, Queensland based, VFL coach), working on my change of pace to make a better position on the field.” Andy reflected.
Jimmy identified process and not concerning himself with uncontrollable factors, like scoring systems as a major contributor to being where he is today. Each week, Jimmy keeps his review simple, focusing on consistency.
“What is one thing I can work on for next week, to be more consistent as an umpire and make sure my teammates know, what they are going to get each week.” Jimmy explained.
Jimmy’s fitness has been an area of huge growth in recent years allowing his umpiring to prosper.
“Being a taller, more solid sort of character, I can look different to others when I move around the field.”
“I feel like, the last few years, I have been able to show a consistent side of my running and the way I can move around (the field). Jimmy observed.
Jimmy realises though, that there is still more work to be done.
“It is only the beginning of that journey as well, it gives me a lot of confidence now, that I have overcome the challenges so far. Now, I want to build on it.” Jimmy emphasised.
There are many coaches, peers and mentors along the journey which contribute to a person’s success on the sporting field.
Andy credits Duffy as playing a big role in his umpiring journey. Duffy was Assistant Academy Coach when Andy joined the academy starting a relationship that grew over time. Andy rose to state league footy rapidly, umpiring alongside Duffy, before being coached and mentored by him. Duffy was a constant pillar of guidance and support over the years.
Steve Davis ran the club umpiring program in Aspley when Andy first picked up a whistle. Steve was involved in Brisbane Juniors for several years alongside James Price and Lachlan Chambers.
“Steve had a bigger impact, than he realises on me.
“The way he was able to guide me and lead me into umpiring.
“I probably owe my first couple of years club and junior umpiring to him and the assistance he was able to give.” Andy reflected.
Steve was one of the first people Andy contacted when he received news, he was elevated to the AFL list.
“It is those little things in umpiring, that are really nice.
“Knowing, that you have had an impact on someone else and you have made them proud.” Andy said.
Jimmy’s mentors include AFL Umpire Matt Stevic and current VFL Coach in Queensland Chris “Farra” Fawcett but pays special tribute to his Dad (David).
“My Dad, (was a big influence), he was an umpire himself, he would be the first person to message after a game with, ‘Well Done on this, what about that, kind of questioning, which makes you think a bit deeper at times.’ Jimmy said.
The Queensland AFL community can’t wait to support both Andy and Jimmy in their respective debut AFL matches and wish them long and successful careers.

High Performance Umpires, Caleb Stephens and Jackson Whittle have spent their Wednesday nights and Sundays giving back to junior umpiring.
Caleb and Jackson spoke of how umpiring has influenced their lives on and off the footy field. This has fuelled their desire to volunteer their time coaching Brisbane Junior umpires at Moorooka this year. The duo has created a positive environment for the next batch of junior umpires, following in their footsteps.
Recruitment and retention of umpires continues to be difficult due to a variety of factors including work and study commitments, health/injury/age related, inadequate support/pay, lack of enjoyment. (ABC, 2022)
“(We try and create) a relaxed environment, keep it fun, get the footballs involved, do some match simulation. We try and create activities that make people want to come to training.” Jackson said.
Both young men spoke of the positive environment their first umpire coaches created, influencing their passion and commitment to umpiring. Lachlan Chambers (Chook), James Price (Pricey) and Steve Davis coached the Brisbane junior umpiring group for several years in the 2010’s.
“I think for me, it was where (Brisbane juniors) I first started and found my love for the game.” Jackson said.
“We had Chook and Pricey as coaches, they had a large impact on me and my direction, I wanted to pass that down and give junior umpires coming through the ranks the same experience.”
Jackson and Caleb made their QAFL Senior debuts in 2022. The journey of coaching has no doubt assisted their personal developments on and off the field.
Jackson received some sage advice from former State League Umpire James Waldorff fuelling his desire to get involved in coaching.
“Something Duff said to me last year. If you can’t explain it to someone else succinctly, you probably don’t know it well enough.
“Having that extra session where I would be explaining to the group, law interpretation or positioning, it would help my game.
“Coaching has accelerated my progression a lot.” Jackson explained.
Caleb says umpiring has improved his skills off the footy field including being able to deal with stressful situations.
“On the footy field, you will see punch ups, you might get abused, it is about staying calm.
“I think going into different, pressure situations in life, if you are having a conversation or argument with someone, you know how to stay calm, and it is a skill you have practiced at footy.” Caleb said.
There is always a need for more umpires across all levels of football. The benefits are vast, from getting paid for being involved in a sport you love, making new friends, getting fitter, learning more about the game and developing your communication skills.
“Umpiring gives you a greater depth and understanding of the game, that you play and watch on the weekend.
“It is a real community; we have made some great friends in the umpiring community.
“It is really rewarding; I think it is something that everyone should have a crack at.” Jackson said.
AFL Queensland Umpiring Development Lead, Sam Bridges, acknowledged the importance of having people like Caleb and Jackson involved in the coaching space.
“Caleb and Jackson have been through that pathway themselves, so they can relate to the umpires coming through the junior system.
“It is such a great opportunity to have relatable, young, developing umpires, who have the energy and passion to develop other people.
“The feedback we have got about Caleb and Jackson in particular, has been outstanding regarding their engagement with the umpires in the group.
Sam’s philosophy is to have coaching tools available and positive environments to allow umpires to develop and enjoy umpiring.
“I think the more people that we can get involved, especially out of our high performance and community programs in junior umpiring, is going to elevate the progression of umpires through our ranks.” Bridges emphasised.

Ty Duncan made a shock, yet deserved AFL debut in Round 2. Just two weeks later, Ty was selected to umpire his first AFLW Grand Final in Adelaide. The prestigious appointments come off the back of a consistently high-quality body of work throughout the AFLW season and last 12-24 months.
Friday, March 25, was the start of a whirlwind 24 hours for Ty, receiving four miss calls from AFL boundary umpire coach Darren Wilson.
“I got hold of Darren and he said there is an opportunity because Nick (Swanson) was unable to umpire. They thought I was capable of it.
“It was a real exciting Friday, maybe better to have a day, rather than a week or a month to think about it (AFL debut).” Ty said.
Ty doesn’t have an AFL contract in season 2022, but his consistent performances gave the coaches, confidence Ty would be up to AFL standard. Ty was appointed to the AFLW final, between Brisbane and Collingwood at the Gabba; his late elevation to the AFL game had a slingshot effect for some fortunate Queensland umpires.
Delson Jones umpired his first AFLW final at the Gabba, while community umpire Luke Spanner umpired a VFL game. It shows with depth in quality, there are always opportunities for Queensland umpires.
Gold Coast Suns were playing Melbourne the following day. To umpire the reigning premiers in his first game, and with some of his umpiring mentors, including good friend Peter Bock was extra special.
“Walking around and you see Max Gawn, the premiers, was pretty cool.
“You see them pretty close when you are at the ground, but to think you are actually doing the game they are playing in was pretty exciting.” Ty said.
Ty grew up on the Sunshine Coast beginning his umpiring journey in 2014, field umpiring an Under 10s match at Maroochydore. Like many of us, Ty began umpiring to stay involved in the game.
“I wasn’t very good at playing, I was about to go into Colts, I was pretty small. I had some mates umpiring, Jonathan Angus was, so I joined him.” Ty recalled.
Ty began boundary umpiring in 2015. It wasn’t long before Ty was identified to join high performance training in Brisbane. Multiple trips down the Bruce Highway each week were the norm.
From reduced pies in the deli section and chocolate milk at Woolies on the drive home in his teenage years to a more nutritious burrito in recent times, Ty attributed an increase in professionalism to his rise to the top echelons of umpiring.
AFL boundary umpire Peter Bock has been integral to Ty’s umpiring journey. Peter took Ty under his wing and has been a source of motivation and constant feedback.
“I started training with Peter who taught me a lot about running. We are always discussing umpiring.
“He helps a lot with how it is perceived on TV, most games are televised, you want to look sharp on TV.” Ty said.
Ty would be at Peter’s front door every morning at 6am to run in the preseason.
“I helped Ty a lot, and spent a lot of time with him, because he wanted to get better. Bit by bit he has improved his 5km time, from 19 minutes to mid 15 minutes in four years.” Peter Bock recalled.
It is Ty’s growth off the field, which gives Peter immense pride.
“Ty is now a mature young man with great character, he lifts those around him.
“The future of Queensland umpiring at the elite level is in a good place with Ty Duncan involved, as he will continue to strive to get the best out of himself and those around him.” Peter said.
Apart from the friendships formed, one of the things Ty loves about being involved in umpiring is the competitive nature it brings out in him.
“I am still involved in the game, each level when you progress, there is extra incentive to get to the next level.
“I want to be the best, to beat the next person, which translates to game day.” Ty said.
It is evident why Ty is continually improving his umpiring. Ty has lofty goals for the coming 12 months. These include setting him up to umpire VFL finals and even a shot at an AFL contract for season 2023, after performing admirably in his unexpected debut AFL game. Ty is keeping it simple to improve his game identifying key areas to excel.
“Consistency with throws, keeping them the same, they are mostly big, just not always perfect, sometimes a little long. Also getting stronger as a runner is always a goal.” Ty explained.
We wish Ty all the best in his umpiring journey and can’t wait for AFL game number two in the future.
