Referee of the Month

Check out some of our outstanding referees that have been awarded Referee of the Month.


Mandy Ratcliffe
Mandy Ratcliffe
Warrandyte Referee Association

Mandy has been reffing for 15 years. She started reffing so she could ref with her boys.

She started with the Warrandyte/Eltham refs association and is still with them as Warrandyte/Park Orchards refs association.

There weren’t many female refs at Warrandyte in those days and Mandy wanted to inspire girls/women to ref.

Mandy recommends reffing to females because it gives you independence, makes you a stronger woman and for the friendships you can form. It teaches you how to handle adversity with grace & poise which was a skill Mandy needed on Friday in a game which had many vocal spectators.
