River edge danger sign Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au A NEW Year’s Day near tragedy has highlighted the need to play safe around and in water off bayside beaches in the hot summer weeks ahead. A boy and a girl playing by rocks near the mouth of Patterson River were swept into the river at about 7pm on 1 January. An adult family member reached the boy but the five-year-old girl was carried out to sea by the river current.

Three men responded to cries for help and managed to rescue the girl. Carrum Surf Life Saving Club is again urging people not to swim near Patterson River. Club president Ben Rooks says beachgoers should always swim between the flags so lifesavers on duty can see them if they get into strife. Lifesavers patrolled Carrum beach from 10am until 8pm on the hottest day of this summer so far on Saturday (5 January) and rescued four people in two incidents.

When the cool change swept through the area some swimmers were caught in a rip into Patterson River. “Two 18-year-old men ended up in the channel of the Patterson River and were rescued just after 6pm,” he said. A 12-year-old boy was plucked out of the water at about 7.20pm on the Saturday near the river mouth and a 16-yearold girl was rescued in the area at about 7.45pm. “It’s a notorious spot and there have been drownings there in previous decades,” Mr Rooks said.

“The population is growing and little Carrum beach is really quite dangerous. “People need to know about the danger there and swim outside the life saving club.” Life Saving Victoria advised there were 74 rescues by lifesavers across the state on Saturday as the temperature across Melbourne and its suburbs soared to 42 degrees celsius before the cool change. LSV lifesaving operations manager Greg Scott said it was a busy weekend for Victorian lifesavers.

There have been 11 drowning deaths across the state since the start of summer, the highest number in more than a decade. “Sadly, there were two lives lost to drowning at Victorian beaches on Saturday, with incidents at Altona and Williamstown, as well as a number of non-fatal incidents across the state,” Mr Scott said. “These incidents are a tragic reminder of the inherent dangers of our beaches and all waterways, including bay beaches, rivers, lakes and creeks.”

Roads take heavy toll on men MEN make up the majority of road deaths in the past year, accounting for 186 of the 255 fatalities in Victoria. The number of lives lost includes 151 lives lost on country roads and 104 in metropolitan areas. Road Policing Command Assistant Commissioner Doug Fryer said while the road toll was down for the first time in four years, “it’s sobering to reflect that 255 families move into the new year without their loved one”. “My deepest condolences to each of the families who I can only guess continue to contemplate why, why have they been thrust into the sadness and loss that is the unexpectedness of road trauma,” Mr Fryer said. He said it had been disheartening to be told on New Year’s Day of the death of the first person on the roads for 2018. “The information I have at this stage is that it appears the car may have swerved to miss a kangaroo,” Mr Fryer said. “I cannot accept that it is only a matter of time before another life is lost, that the cost of mobility will at times be someone’s life. “That is why police will continue to run intelligence led state-wide and local police operations that focus on speed, drink and drug driving, distraction, seat belt compliance and fatigue. “My resolve only strengthens too that we’ll continue to enforce and educate for greater road safety. And we’ll continue to call on the community to acknowledge that they, each and every motorist, rider, pedestrian and or cyclist, has a role in ensuring theirs and

other road users safety.” He said analysis of road deaths showed “increases and decreases and ups and downs, but really at the core of all of this is a deep frustration and sadness”. “Sadness of course, that families have lost a loved one but one of frustration, that people continue to lose their lives to road trauma.

Provisional road death figures in 2017 show: n 151 lives were lost on country roads which is 59 per cent of all the lives lost n About 80 per cent of the fatal injury collisions on country roads occurred in speed zones of 100kph or higher. n 104 deaths on metropolitan roads, a 37 per cent decrease to 2016 when

141 people lost their lives in metropolitan areas n The number of cyclist deaths has increased by 50 per cent, from eight in 2016 to 12 last year. n Motorcyclist deaths have decreased by 33 per cent from 55 in 2016 to 37 last year. One pillion passenger was killed. n Passenger deaths have also in-

creased by 29 per cent from 35 in 2016 to 45 last year. n Pedestrian deaths have decreased by 23 per cent from 40 in 2016 to 31 last year. n Single fatality collisions decreased 15 per cent from 261 in 2016 to 219 last year. n Double fatality collisions decreased 19 per cent with 13 in 2016 compared to 11. n Triple fatality collisions have increased 75 per cent with one in 2016 compared to four last year in which 12 people lost their lives. n The 254 lives were lost from 234 fatal collisions. n Males accounted for the majority of lives lost with 186 compared with 68 females with one unknown gender (following up reports). n The 25 to 29-year-old age bracket saw the biggest decrease in lives lost on our roads with 33 lives lost in 2016 compared with 19 in 2017, a decrease of 42 per cent. n November recorded the most lives lost with 32, up from 25 in 2016. n April had an increase in lives lost with 28 compared to 16 in 2016, a 75 per cent increase. Two double fatality collisions and thirteen single fatality collisions during the end of term one and Easter holidays contributed to this increase. n There were 44 lives lost as a result of collisions involving heavy vehicles, a 10 per cent increase from 2016 which had 40. n Heavy vehicle fatalities accounted for 17 per cent of all fatalities.

ce patrol Rings thief did runner

Home robbed

A PARKDALE man who went out for a run returned to find his car, keys and cards missing, 7am, Sunday 7 January. The man’s wife and children were at the Nepean Highway house at the time but did not hear or see the thief. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

Bike taken

AN expensive French mountain bike was stolen from a storage cage beneath a Mentone apartment block, overnight Saturday 6 January. Thieves cut into the cage at the Phillips St property and stole the Lapierre Zesty bike, which is valued at $3000-$4000.

Schools the targets

THIEVES stole two TV sets and an iPad from Mentone Primary School, Childers St, 6.20pm,

Saturday 6 January. St John Vianney’s Primary School, Parkdale, was hit by vandals who climbed in through the roof, Friday 29 December to Tuesday 2 January. Offices at the school were ransacked and food and drink stolen from staff rooms.

Items stolen, left behind A DELL laptop and coins were stolen from a Canterbury Rd, Braeside, business, while drills and rotary cutters which the thieves piled up at the door were left behind, overnight Thursday 4 January.

Authorised by M Dreyfus, 566 Main St Mordialloc.

A 26-YEAR-OLD woman who was captured by police while driving a stolen car on the Monash Freeway, Monday 8 January, may be charged with stealing expensive jewellery from Southland. Detectives will allege the woman visited a high-end jeweller on Boxing Day and asked to see two rings valued at $20,000. When a staff member’s attention was diverted she allegedly “did a runner” with the rings. Although detectives knew her identity the woman was not seen again until a pursuit in which a Pakenham woman’s Suzuki Swift was driven across road spikes and crashed into three police cars with its tyres shredded. She is also expected to be charged with aggravated burglary, theft of a motor vehicle and conduct endangering serious injury.

Lock before you leave POLICE are appealing for residents to lock their cars and secure their valuables, especially while at home, at the beach or shopping. Detective Sergeant Michael Coughlin, of Moorabbin CIU, said laptops, phones, wallets containing cash and credit cards and other valuables were common targets for thieves who preyed upon the careless and the unwary. “Even if your car is parked in the driveway it should still be locked and valuables removed – especially overnight,” Detective Coughlin said.

ASPENDALE Gardens and Edithvale residents who backed the formation of a community bank branch of Bendigo Bank in 2010 are receiving their first dividends this month. Bank chair Anna McDonald said 212 shareholders will receive dividends since the bank has moved into profit. “The result is the culmination of a lot of hard work and local support from the Aspendale Gardens-Edithvale community and surrounding area,” Ms McDonald said. “Without their support the branch would not exist.” The bank’s remaining profits are channelled back into the community via donations, sponsorships, grants and scholarships.

Year-long power test for paddlers KAYAKS and canoes can be fitted with small electric motors without being registered. The trial aims to reduce red tape for low-powered vessels travelling up to five knots and ends 31 December. The exemption is for kayaks and canoes with electric motors of up to 40 pounds thrust (or one horsepower or 750 watts). “If the trial period shows that the safety of paddlers is not compromised in any way, this exemption is likely to become permanent,” Maritime Safety Victoria director Peter Corcoran. “This will also enable an easier process for people taking their paddle craft interstate.” The trial is in response to a recom-

mendation from the Red Tape Commissioner to bring Victorian requirements closer to New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia and Tasmania. Mr Corcoran said the benefits of motors are that kayakers and other paddlers can conserve energy and have some assistance in getting home after their trip. “Maritime Safety Victoria reminds paddlers that the addition of a motor presents different risks while operating their craft, including incorrectly fitting a motor that results in the hull no longer being watertight; travelling beyond competence and capability levels; overestimating the capacity of the kayak to handle conditions further offshore that may change without warning,” he said.

Regulations with which paddlers must comply include wearing a lifejacket, carrying a bailer or bilge pump and a waterproof buoyant torch, having the means of calling for help such as a mobile phone and having an alternative means of propulsion, such as a spare paddle. Safety equipment requirements, and guidance on how to fit a motor is available at: transportsafety.vic.gov.au/msv/ paddling Paddle power: Kayakers and canoeists, like this one at the mouth of Patterson River, can rest easy in the knowledge that they don’t need a permit for small electric motors to supplement their paddling.

Teen arrest after bush blaze threatens homes Neil Walker Neil@baysidenews.com.au A FIRE that swept across part of Carrums Downs during Saturday’s statewide heatwave may have been started intentionally. Police arrested a 15-year-old girl in relation to the bushfire that forced the evacuation of about 30 residents from Darnley Drive and Augusta Court on Saturday (6 January). The initially small fire began in nearby Blue Wren Rise at about 3pm and quickly threatened to engulf homes. A Darnley Drive house was badly damaged by the fire. No-one was injured and firefighters managed to bring the blaze under control by about 9pm on Saturday evening. Police announced on Sunday morning that Frankston Crime Investigation Unit detectives charged the arrested Carrum Downs teenager with intentionally causing a bushfire. She was bailed to appear at a children’s court at a later date. More than 300 firefighters responded to control the Carrum Downs fire amid the hottest day of the summer in Melbourne with temperatures topping 40 degrees celsius on Saturday afternoon. A cool weather change brought with it high winds but fears this may fan the flames did not eventuate. The blaze ripped through 36 hectares of bush. Two water bombing helicopters were called in to help fight the fire at its peak. “We’ve had one property which has sustained some fairly significant damage where some embers have come in through the roof, through an evaporative cooler,” Country Fire Authority regional chief officer Trevor Owen told ABC News. “There is also some fencing at the back of those

properties and we’ve also sustained some damage to four sheds.” The CFA advised residents to evacuate to a safe point at Carrum Downs Shopping Centre while firefighters brought the blaze under control. Firefighters also tackled a grass and scrub fire in Hastings at Cemetery Rd on Saturday afternoon. A water bomber was called in to douse the fire that burned close to a BlueScope Steel oil and gas pipeline. The two fires were among about 50 across Victoria reported to firefighters. Victoria’s Emergency Management Commissioner Craig Lapsley defended a decision not to issue an emergency warning for the Carrum Downs fire. “Even though there may be structures alight, or there may be fences alight or outbuildings that’s something the incident controller will determine about what is the immediate threat versus the immediate threat to life and injury,” he said at a media briefing. “Obviously that’s a dynamic environment. “The emergency warning is where there is imminent danger to your life.”

Sand sculptures tell tales THANKFULLY it took less than 1001 nights to build the latest attraction on Frankston’s foreshore telling the tales of Aladdin, Sinbad the Sailor, Ali Baba and the forty thieves and other Arabian Nights stories. Twenty skilled sculptors put in more than 5000 carving hours over 30 days using 3500 tonnes of brickies’ loam sand to build the Sand Sculpting Australia exhibition illustrating the stories of the Arabian Nights. Sandstorm Events director Sharon Redmond says the exhibition is open to visitors until 25 April. “Our aim is to capture the imagination and provide a unique experience that reappropriates the natural environment and encourages people to enjoy it in a new way,” she said. “This summer, you’ll be transported back in time to explore the ancient and ever-so-magical stories of the 1001 Arabian Nights, made completely from sand.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Escaped detainee found in Frankston Compiled by Brodie Cowburn DURING the early hours of Wednesday morning (Boxing Day) 4 boys, who were amongst the lads detained at the training farm on Tortoise Head Island, escaped to the mainland. One lad swam out to a boat which was anchored some hundreds of yards from the shore. He then picked up his companions and they sailed to Stony Point, a distance of five miles. One of the lads William Hennessy, aged 16 years made his way as far as Frankston where he was promptly arrested, as the police had been warned of the boy’s escape. So far the other boys have not been traced. *** LIEUTENANT L. P Little, 27th Battalion, A.I.F, is reported to have won the Military Cross. He is the son of Mr David Little. Shire engineer, of Werribee, and nephew of Mrs C Maxwell, of Frankston. *** SERGEANT Horace Picking, nephew of Mr R. T. Picking, has been awarded the Military Medal for conspicuous bravery on the field. He is now lying in hospital, wounded and suffering from the effects of gas. *** FORCIBLE language is used by Gunner H. S Smith, who is serving in France, in referring to strikers in Australia. He regards them as worse than cowards. ***

DOUGLAS Picking, only son of Mr and Mrs R. T Picking of “Mydugra” Glen Huntly and “’Dindorbonda, Frankston, has enlisted for active service abroad. *** MARK Reginald Peters, for being drunk in charge of a horse and cart in Bay Street on 22nd December was fined 5s or 12 hours imprisonment. *** A BOAT house at Seaford, belonging to Mr Charles Hunter, Middle Park, was broken into on Christmas evening and a quantity of fishing tackle stolen. A telephone message was sent to the Frankston police at about 8pm. Constable Ryan arrived at Seaford by train and arrested on suspicion three young men who had boarded the train at Seaford. The suspects were searched by the Constable and the stolen property was found in their possession. *** A SUCCESFUL reunion of Roman Catholics was held at Frankston on Boxing Day and attracted from all parts of Melbourne and Suburbs a crowd of between 30,000 and 40,000 people. Fifteen special trains, in addition to the usual augmented holiday service were run from Flinders Street to Frankston and they were all uncomfortably overcrowded. One of the trains as it passed through Chelsea was pelted with eggs. *** NOTICE TO READERS.

THERE is no doubt that many events in the outlying districts are unrecorded. We will be pleased if readers will furnish us with the details of any occurrence of public interest for publication in THE STANDARD. The aim of the proprietors of the ‘Standard’ is to do all in their power to foster the continual material welfare of the district—but naturally the more liberally we are supported the better paper we can produce, and the greater will be our opportunity to cater as an enterprising journal for the news wants of the community. *** THROUGH the energy of some of the ladies of Langwarrin the sum of £5 was collected and spent in the purchase of gifts to fill 40 bags which were distributed amongst the invalids at the Camp on Thursday. *** T. R. B. MORTON & Son report having sold, per J. L. Parkes, one of their auctioneers, Mr John Boyds property with residence in Norman S. Flinders, for £600 cash. *** FOR many years past Frankston Park has been a rendezvous for some of the best athletes in the State assembling on New Year’s Day to try conclusions in running, cycling and woodcutting, and the committee has always put down with a strong hand anything they observed in the way of crook performances. Not withstanding the many adverse influences that existed this year towards having a successful

meeting, the sports were carried out most successfully, thus showing that the public retain their confidence in having a pleasant outing and a good day’s amusement. Mr Bendixsen, the promoter, and his energetic committee, are to be heartily congratulated on the success of the first Henley on Kannanook Creek. The boats left the starting point at 4.30 and hundreds of spectators witnessed a most picturesque sight as they came down the creek.

WHAT’S NEW... Coast: The artists’ retreat – Cape Schanck to Point Nepean

8 DECEMBER – 18 FEBRUARY At Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery

WHAT’S ON

COAST: THE ARTISTS’ RETREAT CAPE SCHANCK TO POINT NEPEAN

• FREE INTERACTIVE ACTIVITY Add a sea creature to the rockpool during the exhibition

An MPRG exhibition

FOR over 200 years, the Mornington Peninsula has been a muse and haven for artists. Attracting a stellar roll call of some of the most recognisable names in Australian art, the wild and rugged coast has inspired works from artists such as Eugene von Guérard, Nicholas Chevalier, Louis Buvelot, Violet Teague, John Perceval and Albert Tucker. This ambitious exhibition brings together masterpieces from these iconic artists as the basis of an extended conversation, considering our relationship to the coast, to the Australian landscape and our environment. Newly commissioned works from GW Bot, Megan Cope, Raafat Ishak, Euan Macleod and Kerrie Poliness tackle contemporary questions of our connection to landscape. These commissions, the result of a recently established artists in residence program at Police Point in Portsea, consider the beauty

and magnitude of the coastline through painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography and video. Visitors are invited to add a sea creature to the rock pool in the interactive activity area. Also on display over summer is Glass: Art Design Architecture, a JamFactory touring exhibition showcasing 23 outstanding projects by contemporary Australian artists, designers and architects. Visitors can enjoy free guided tours on Saturdays and Sundays at 3pm, curator talks are run on 16 and 27 January, there are also school holiday workshops, artist talks and excursions and a one-day artist camp at Police Point for creatives, guided by artist David Hugh Thomas. Visit the MPRG website to find out more about the exhibitions and special events and to listen to podcasts and artist videos mprg.mornpen.vic.gov.au

HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS

Refurbishment completed! In November 2016, St John of God Frankston Rehabilitation Hospital commenced their $9.7 million refurbishment. After 12 months, they are pleased to announce they have now completed all major renovations, with only some minor works remaining. New external signage will be also be completed in the next month. Many milestones have been achieved: • Refurbishment of 46 rooms and ensuites, including building 4 entirely new patients rooms • Increased single room capacity • New spaces on ground floor include: extended foyer with airlock entry, new Chapel, Multipurpose room and Café • Improved spaces on first level include Occupational Therapy (OT) ADL Kitchen, OT gym and upgraded pharmacy. • Ambulance entrance has relocated to a new undercover area at rear of hospital, to improve traffic flow and ease of patient entry. • Many behind the scenes mechanical and services include a new 17 tonne generator, upgraded airconditioning and plumbing. Chief Executive Officer / Director of Nursing, Sally Faulkner, said the most critical component of the refurbishment was to increase the number of single rooms at their hospital to better support patients through their recovery.

“We have converted our three and four bed rooms to two bed rooms and refurbished all bathrooms. Providing our patients with greater comfort and privacy was our ultimate goal,” Sally said. For a rehabilitation hospital, access is incredibly important and new front and rear entrances to the hospital will make it easier for patients as well as vehicles that transport patients after surgery or injury. “Whilst this was a comprehensive and detailed refurbishment, it occurred in stages to minimise the impact on our inpatient and outpatient services. There was a buzz of excitement as each stage finished and we are so pleased with the result”. “Living through a refurbishment is never easy with disruption and changes. We are very thankful to our patients and families for their understanding as we have undertaken this essential work. Our caregivers and contractors efforts to ‘keep calm and carry on’ during the refurbishment works whilst supporting our patients and families during this time has been wonderful.” Sally said REFERRALS: Outpatient referrals can be sent to: St John of God Frankston Rehabilitation Hospital 255-265 Cranbourne Road, Frankston 3199 Fax: (03) 9788 3280 Inpatient referrals can be sent to: Fax: (03) 9788 3304

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

A Not So Close Shave By Stuart McCullough ENOUGH was enough. I’d let it do as it pleased for far too long and the time had come to take tough and decisive action. For several weeks I’d allowed my facial follicles complete freedom and, in that time, they’d made the most of the opportunity. In a surprisingly short amount of time, my beard had gone totally free-range. The end result was not so much a cultivated piece of man-scaping as it was the unkempt backyard of an abandoned rental property after the tenants have long since scarpered. It was messy and made me look like a castaway. The time had come for a serious bit of trimming. The first crucial step in a successful beard trim is to charge the trimmer. This requires finding the charging dock, placing the shaver on said charging dock and remembering to turn the electricity on. It sounds surprisingly simple, but you’d be amazed how often I have succeeded in fouling up one if not several of these steps. There’s nothing worse that a flat battery mid-trim. Bitter experience had taught me that having the trimmer konk out mid-trim results in the blades taking my beard in the kind of vice-like death-grip that only the Jaws of Life can release. It was mistake I was determined not to make. Again. There was little room for error. The need to trim had been prompted by an important meeting; the type of meeting where looking like a derelict could well be a disadvantage. It was essential that I make myself as presentable as the raw materials would permit. Perhaps foolishly, I waited until the last possible minute before attending to my man-scaping needs. With the benefit of hindsight, I appreciate that this was an act of pure facial follicle folly. Indeed, I was not so much tempting fate as I was taunting it, baring my metaphorical buttocks and daring it to do its worst. With the battery charged, things started

well. Facial hair tumbled into the sink in huge clumps. In moments, I would be transformed from looking like Grizzly Adams’ stunt double to sporting the kind of stubble that would make Don Johnson weep with envy. I’d be out the door in no time, ready to prepare for my big meeting. And then, at exactly the half way mark, the trimmer stopped working. To be precise, it was still making a sound, but was not longer trimming anything. To have a bushy beard is one thing. To have designer stubble is another. But to half exactly half of each is nothing short of catastrophic. The difference between the two sides of my face was so pronounced that I looked like a human Neenish hair tart. I’ll admit I started to panic. Did I have time to shave it all off? Could I sit through a meeting with my head turned to one side the whole time? Or, alternatively, should I rest my head in my palms and hope that no one thought it was weird, even when I was speaking? So many options, so little time. As is so often the case when disaster of the mechanical variety strikes in our house, I decided the best course of action was to panic. Which involved waking up my wife and asking her to help. This, of course, required her to overcome the waves of convulsive laughter she experienced upon catching sight of my fifty-fifty face. Producing a screwdriver, she pulled the thing apart. This, of course, took me even further away from being ready for work. She then prodded, poked and scraped, before asking me when I’d last oiled it. Luckily, I knew exactly when I’d last oiled the trimmer because the last time I’d done it was… never. Sure, the instructions said it should be oiled on a regular basis and I’d been using that thing for at least six years without a second thought. Some might call such conduct reckless. I, however, like to think of myself as an optimist. I have great faith in machinery. Perhaps more than it deserves.

Chelsea Mordialloc Mentone News 10 January 2018

It’s not the first time I’ve done this. I remember being at University and complaining to my brother that my electric shaver had packed it in. He then asked how long it’d been since I’d last emptied it. Until that moment, I had no idea that emptying your electric shaver was, in fact, a thing. The poor mite had simply choked on stubble until it could take no more. Goodness knows where I thought all the hair ended up. Presumably taken by the shaving fairies. Having applied oil before putting the screws back in, things took a turn for the better when I flicked the switch and it sounded like its old self. As I raised the trimmer to my face, hair rained down once more. I was saved. Within minutes I was wholly transformed. I no longer looked like

a roadie for Billy Thorpe and the Aztecs but like someone who, by rights, should be attending a very important meeting. I’ve no idea why it is that I leave these things to the last minute. Or why it is that I think that I can ignore the need for routine maintenance, despite my previous experiences. I vow to be better. From this day on I will either learn to follow instructions or, alternatively, never trim my beard again. You’ll know which way I’ve gone next time we run into each other. Until then, if you see someone in the distance who looks like he should be a member of ZZ Top, please look the other way. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

So far Armour has retained Mark O’Connor, Daniel Attard, Marcus Collier, Jason Nowakowski, Johnny Andrinopoulos and Jonathan Crook. New NPL2 side Langwarrin will play an intraclub match at Lawton Park on Saturday 13 January at 10am. Other pre-season games are against Heidelberg United at Lawton Park on Saturday 20 January at 10am (under-20s) and 12 noon (seniors), Green Gully at Green Gully Reserve on Tuesday 23 January at 7.30pm and a seniors’ intraclub match at Lawton Reserve on Monday 29 January at 6.30pm. Frankston Pines and new playing assistant coach Ben Caffrey get their 2018 pre-season underway this week on the training track and the Monterey Reserve outfit will have its first hitout at home on Saturday 20 January against Skye United with the reserves kicking off at 1pm and the seniors at 3pm. Pines host Geelong Rangers (seniors only) on Saturday 10 February at 3pm and are at home again on Saturday 17 February (seniors and reserves) against East Brighton at 1pm and 3pm. Pines seniors and reserves are away to Casey Comets on Saturday 17 March (kick-off times to be confirmed). Peninsula Strikers aim to bounce straight back following last year’s relegation from State 2 South-East and English imports Oscar Marsden and Ryan Thompson are due to arrive in Australia this week. Forwards Thompson and Marsden played with Brigg Town in England’s Northern Counties East League Division One. Although Thompson is only 21 he is the longest serving player in Brigg Town’s senior squad and in 2015/16 was the manager’s player of the year and the players’ player of the year. Marsden is 20 and his previous clubs are North Cave, Sculcoates Amateurs and Pocklington Town. Marsden’s brother lives in Sydney and both players will stay there for a few days before heading to Melbourne. There has been a change in Striker’s coaching set-up with reserves coach Jamie Paterson becoming assistant to senior coach Andy O’Dell. Graham Watson is now in charge of the reserves assisted by his son John. Initially new signing Aron Wilford was appointed as playing assistant to O’Dell but work commitments have forced the big central defender to concentrate on playing duties. Strikers will play Doncaster Rovers (seniors and reserves) at Centenary Park on Saturday 17 Febru-

Meanwhile State 4 South club Baxter faces a huge task in replacing veteran striker Mark Pagliarulo who has been appointed under-15 head coach at Italian-backed NPL heavyweight Bulleen. Pagliarulo was first approached by Alien Fitness founder John Maisano at his Rosebud gym in December and a few days later he was appointed to the Bulleen role by the club’s technical director Harry Bingham. “I’m officially retired now,” said Pagliarulo. “I’ll be doing three sessions a week at Bulleen on top of playing games so I’m going to put everything into the coaching side of things. It’s lucky for me to get this opportunity so high up so I had to take it. “I’m sad to be leaving Baxter though because

By Craig MacKenzie SKYE United completed the first signing coup of 2018 when it convinced scoring legend Caleb Nicholes to come out of retirement and join the State 3 South-East promotion candidate. Nicholes, 35, had three stints with Langwarrin having first joined the club in 1999. He has also played with Fitzroy City, Frankston Pines, East Richmond and Springvale White Eagles and scored 192 goals for Langy. Nicholes made 249 league appearances for the Lawton Park outfit and won an unprecedented 10 club Golden Boot awards. He retired after playing in last year’s State 1 South-East championship side and scored in the last game of the season. He is a senior pastor at Southern Lights church which is close to Skye United’s headquarters at Skye Recreational Reserve. “I’m mates with (Skye coach) Billy (Armour) and full credit to him for doing a lot of convincing,” said Nicholes. “I don’t know how many games I’ll play, maybe 10, maybe 15 or so, but we’ll just take it week by week and see if we can squeeze a few more games out of these legs. “My standard has always been a goal a game and that’s what I’ll aim for. I don’t really know a lot about Skye but I’ve been told it’s like a mini Langy and that they’ve got a good culture down there and that’s important. “It sounds like they have good people there who want to build the club up and I’m hoping that a bit of experience can help them get promoted. “It’ll be good to have a few derbies against Strikers and Seaford. “I haven’t played against those sides for years and I’m really looking forward to it.” Skye is buzzing with the news and the club has high expectations of the impact Nicholes can make. “Caleb’s impact will be huge,” said Armour. “His experience and his knowledge of the game will have a big impact on our players and it will make the rest of the peninsula sit up and take notice. “He’ll be a good drawcard for other players knowing that a player of his calibre has decided to join us.” Armour has lost Wumjock Jock, Dan Utting and English import Jacob Scotte-Hatherly from last year’s squad and aims to sign another four or five players. “We didn’t have enough depth last year and we need to address that.” The cagy Armour was unusually forthright when asked about his aims in 2018. “We want to get promoted. That’s our number one priority. “After the disappointment of that last game (in 2017) half the squad was ready to go again. They knew how much it hurt to just miss out and they don’t need me to tell them what the aim is this year. “They’re an ambitious group and they want to go one step further.”

what they did for me and my family was massive and I can’t thank them enough.” While Baxter gaffer Francis Beck sifts through a number of possibilities to replace Pags up front the saga surrounding the naming of a senior coach and confirmation of a home ground for State 4 South rival Rosebud Heart drags on. The club already faces a mass player exodus and the longer it dithers in signing a coach the less likely it is to retain the handful of players who remain from last year’s senior squad. State 5 South club Somerville Eagles look set for a major senior squad revamp under new playercoach and former Heart favourite David Greening. Likely newcomers include central midfielder Mick Clark from Elwood City, winger Kaddison English from Rosebud Heart, right back Jack McKenna from Langwarrin and central defenders Lachlan Davie from Diamond Valley United and Scott Laverty from Surfside Waves. Midfielder Bjorn Kutschera has recovered from the broken foot suffered in round five last season while Harry Van Staveren, top scorer in the club’s Bayside League squad last season is now available for the State 5 South squad. The seniors and reserves will take on Bayswater Strikers at Somerville Secondary College on Sunday 4 February, Sandringham at Somerville Secondary College on Saturday 10 February, Croydon City Arrows at Dorset Recreation Reserve on Saturday 3 March, and Mount Lilydale Old Collegians at Somerville Secondary College on Saturday 10 March. All kick-off times will be confirmed closer to the match dates. Check the club’s facebook page.
