AGE NO LIMIT TO MAN IN BLACK - February, 2012
If you're playing in the Granville District, chances are you have had - or will have - the Greystanes man controlling your match. Filipczyk is not just refereeing children's games either. "I think I might be the oldest active referee in NSW who still does Premier League or Senior 1's", the spritely veteran said. "I still enjoy it as much as when I started." "I do it for the sake of the sport, as well as my own fitness."
That long history means players often remember "Wilf" when he arrives at their own ground on a Saturday. "I've been doing this for 32 years. In every team, I know somebody", he told The Advertiser. Yet is not so easy for him to remember all the players. "I have people come up and say 'remember me, you refereed me when I was 16'. "I have to say 'Sorry, I don't remember you'."
Filipczyk started refereeing unofficially when his children, who played for Greystanes, needed a referee for their matches. After they stopped playing the sport, he registered to become an official. "I could see how desperate the clubs were for referee," he said. "I would see the under 9's saying 'Mum we have a referee with the uniform today'. They enjoy it."
He has gone on to referee countless district and representative matches. Only once was he assaulted, when a player wanted a corner awarded instead of a goal kick. At half time the player kicked Filipczyk in the backside. He laughed off the incident to The Advertiser, and recalled his standard reply to critics. "A lot of people say 'how much money to you get?". I say 'not enough to put up with some of you blokes'."
