Football and umpiring can truly reach a perfect harmony.

That is what young gun Kyabram footballer Liam Barrett has learnt during his two years of umpiring and playing the game.

The TAC Cup midfielder for the Bendigo Pioneers has also umpired junior football in the Murray and Goulburn Valley leagues for the past two seasons.

While many young footballers would be content to focus on just one aspect of the game, Liam said he had always enjoyed watching and umpiring as much as he had playing, though he admitted it was a tough initiation.
