Young ref Caleigh wins award

Football West News

Teenager Caleigh Ormerod has received the Female Referee Encouragement Award for WA as part of the rebel Female Football Week.

Caleigh, 16, took up refereeing when she was just 12 and this year is aiming to complete her Level 3 course which will allow her to officiate matches up to Under 18s.

Caleigh, a Year 12 student at Leeming Senior High School, still plays and this year will be in the senior ranks at Murdoch University Melville.

She told Football West: “What I really like is that get to teach younger kids the rules of the game and how to play safe and fairly, to make it better for everyone.”
