In my latest 'behind the scenes' post I wanted to get into the mind of one of the World's leading Netball umpires.

In a female dominated game Gary Burgess is a rare and very successful male umpire who, after leaving teaching 2 years ago, is now the Head of Officiating at England Netball.

In a great insight into his World we chatted about how he warms up his eyes, reads the rule book every day and he gives his opinion on whether Netball will ever get into the Olympic well as announcing he will be disappearing off the netball court next year.
