In 2016 Stu made the transition from Umpire to Coach for the Sunbury Lions C Grade team and in collaboration with Jenni Lewis had a wonderful first season with their team taking out the Premiership. In 2017 Stu and Jenni move into their second year as Co-Coaches of the C Grade Netball Team, no doubt chasing back-to-back premierships.

Stu’s umpiring career began spontaneously when the Sunbury coordinator at the time suggested he come to training in white and he’s been umpiring ever since. Stu’s extensive understanding of the official rules of netball has assisted his team appreciate the complexity of the game and adjust their playing styles accordingly.
