Council wages war on ‘shoddy’ developments Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au KINGSTON Council has fired a warning shot to developers and is preparing a campaign to let residents know where to turn to if they spot red flags in poorly built homes. The mayor Georgina Oxley said that council officers are currently preparing a report that will look into improving protections for occupants

of “shoddy” developments. “For most people their home is their biggest asset and their livelihood, it’s important that we’re able to support families and home owners in protecting their homes. We want developments to comply with the relevant standards. Anything short of this is simply unacceptable,” she said. “Council will write to relevant government agencies and will run a campaign to inform residents about their rights, let them know where they turn

to report any risks and offer support in tackling these issues. “We’ve seen the tragedies around the world occur because of shoddy construction and poor building materials. The time to act is now.” At the 25 February meeting of council, Cr David Eden moved for an advocacy plan to be prepared that would include “improving protections for occupants of existing and new developments in relation to shoddy constructions and poor qual-

ity or hazardous materials that may pose a risk to the health and safety of occupants” and “advocating to other levels of government requesting a mandatory reporting scheme for owners, body corporates, property managers, developers and surveyors if they are aware of threats that may pose a risk to the health and safety of the occupants.” Cr Eden said “hard working Australians who live in these properties need to be protected from rogue op-

erators who are putting profit not people first.” “Unknowing property owners aren’t to blame, but developers and surveyors who should know better need to be held to account,” he said. A Victorian Building Authority audit revealed that 11 privately owned buildings in the Kingston municipality had been identified as having dangerous cladding (“Eleven building at cladding risk”, The News, 27/3/19).

Exhibition: The Kingston Arts Centre will host an exhibition exploring the trauma of the Holocaust.

Exhibition explores Holocaust trauma KINGSTON Arts Centre is set to host an exhibition exploring the trauma experienced by Jewish Australians in the wake of the second World War. The exhibition is presented by artist Robyn Fuerst, the daughter of a man who was among those who took the traumatic journey to Australia on the HMT Dunera. Three weeks after her father had died, Ms Fuerst received an envelope which contained documents hidden by her father during

that voyage. Ms Fuerst’s journey of discovery will be presented at the Arts Centre from 9 May until 8 June. The exhibition will be formed from archival photographs, text, music, found objects and sculpture. Ms Fuerst currently works as a visual arts teacher at Mentone Grammar School. She completed her thesis, titled “Manifestations of Memories, Secrets and Trauma of Holocaust

Survivors and the 2nd Generation. An Australian Context,” at Deakin University. The “Trauma, secrets and memories of Holocaust survivors and the second generation” exhibition will open on 9 May at the Kingston Arts Centre, 979-985 Nepean Hwy, Moorabbin. Admission is free. Ms Fuerst will hold a talk on 15 May from 6pm - 7pm. More information: kingstonarts.com.au

FRANKSTON Council and Mornington Peninsula Shire have requested a meeting with public transport minister Melissa Horne and transport infrastructure minister Jacinta Allan to discuss their joint support for the extension of the Frankston line to Hastings. The extension of the rail line to Baxter is currently being discussed, with the federal government committing $228 million to the project and the state government in the process of conducting a business case. Frankston mayor Michael O’Reilly said that both councils had met and support “stage two” of the project extending the rail line through to Hastings. “If the project is to be delivered as a staged rollout, both councils support Frankston-Langwarrin as stage one and Langwarrin-Hastings as stage two,” he said. “Stage one of this vital public transport project would ease car parking congestion at Frankston Station and will directly benefit Frankston City’s health and education precinct which includes Frankston Hospital, Frankston Private Hospital and Monash University peninsula campus,” he said. “Given recent major investments within the precinct, including the Victorian government’s $562 million upgrade to Frankston Hospital, it is important to provide the transport in-

frastructure needed to cater for the expected visitor growth. “Both councils acknowledge the complex consideration for the future metropolitan train network, however, both are opposed to any stabling and maintenance facilities being located in valuable green wedge land or altering the urban growth boundary and will work together with the Victorian government on possible solutions.” Frankston and Mornington municipalities have a combined population of 305,000, with Frankston classed as a metropolitan activity centre and Hastings a major activity centre. Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor David Gill said that with an estimated 82 per cent of the peninsula having no access to bus services and limited access to such services as health and higher education “the region is in desperate need of greater investment into bus services”. “Mornington Peninsula Shire has the second lowest provision of public transport out of the 31 councils in the Melbourne Metro Area. The aged, youth and mobility affected deserve at least a basic level of service no matter where they live,” he said. “The existing 788 bus service carries over half a million passengers annually, with current frequencies from 45 to 100 minutes failing to meet growing demand. “We need the Victorian and Federal governments to get moving on these public transport projects that will deliver better outcomes for our joint communities.”

Winter wrap for The Pillars fence

Isaacs contest ready to go THE federal election has officially been called for 18 May, with four candidates having put their hands up so far for the seat of Isaacs. The seat has been held by Labor since 1996, with incumbent MP Mark Dreyfus acting as the sitting member since 2007. Mr Dreyfus will again contest the seat, which he retained with a 5.73 per cent margin in 2016. Contesting against the shadow attorney general is Liberal candidate Jeremy Hearn, an architect who says a “strong economy” is his top priority. Clive Palmer’s United Australia party has listed Anthony Seals as their candidate for Isaacs on their website. The initial media release issued by the party on 7 February listed Barry Prior as its candidate for Isaacs. That release said Mr Prior is a man with an “extensive background in small business and technical/management experience in the military, serving as a commissioned officer in the RAAF.” The Animal Justice party will run a candidate in the seat, and have named Bronwyn Currie. The Isaacs electorate encompasses Moorabbin, Carrum, and Dandenong South.

Keith Platt keith@baysidenews.com.au The fence along the Esplanade at Mt Martha designed to cut off access to The Pillars cliff-jumping site will be pulled down after Easter. Although not entirely effective, the fence did lead to a large drop in numbers of people gathering on the cliffs, but it also saw police refusing to cross it in pursuit of anyone drinking alcohol in breach of the shire’s local laws. Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors will decide whether the fence is reinstalled in time for next summer after receiving a report from council officers. The 400-metre long fence effectively blocked a walking track along the Esplanade, forcing walkers onto the road. In the previous year, wooden bollards were erected by the shire to separate walkers from vehicles travelling along the Esplanade. At a sometimes-fiery public meeting in the Mornington council offices last Wednesday (10 April) heard from residents annoyed by the “temporary” fence as well as emergency services’ personnel who have to “go in and pick up the bodies”, the mayor Cr David Gill told The Times. While admitting the use of the word bodies was an exaggeration, Cr Gill said these emergency teams “are doing things they shouldn’t have to do” when called to attend to injured people at The Pillars.

Campaign begins: Labor MP Mark Dreyfus (top) and Liberal candidate Jeremy Hearn (bottom) will stand for the two major parties for the seat of Isaacs. Pictures: Supplied

Cr Gill, who describes himself as the last councillor standing when it came to approving spending close to $200,000 on hiring and erecting the fence, wants the Department of Lands Water and Planning to be involved in “finding a solution”. The shire also used a drone to film and count cliff jumpers at The Pillars. “No one likes the wall, including me,” Cr Gill said. Describing the cost as “outrageous”, Cr Gill said, “no one at the meeting liked the wall, but we’ve got to force some action from the DLWP, from my point of view”. “We’ve gone through the public consultation and now we’re awaiting a report from our officers.” Labor’s candidate for the federal seat of Flinders, Joshua Sinclair, last month said a boardwalk should be built along the cliff top near The Pillars (“Pillars a poll issue” The Times 26/3/19). Following last week’s public meeting, Mr Sinclair said he was “pleased that local police have backed my common-sense approach to The Pillars”. “Residents I speak to have continued to slam the fence as ugly and demanded it be removed,” he said. “The wall has created a more dangerous situation due to people walking on the road. “I welcome this decision [to tear down the fence] from council and thank them for their continued engagement with the community on this issue.”

Tougher rules on the way for jet skis Stephen Taylor steve@baysidenews.com.au JET-ski zones are likely to be in place on several Mornington Beaches next summer. The zones will confine jet skis to strict speed limits within a narrow corridor until they are 500 metres offshore. This tougher line on the noisy water craft follows discussions between Mornington Peninsula Shire, Maritime Safety Victoria, Water Police and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning. Shire local laws officers are being trained to enforce the tougher ap-

proach for the coming summer season after the inappropriate use of jet skis inflamed tensions at Safety Beach and especially Rye over summer. The mayor Cr David Gill said there was a “resoundingly positive reception to the solutions, which the attending community supported wholeheartedly”. “The shire has listened to the community and recognised the significant concern of many beachgoers about the increased presence of jet skis and the dangerous use of personal water craft,” Cr Gill said. “Indeed, council and many other organisations have been inundated with complaints and concerns from the community – ranging from seri-

ous risks through to petrol cans on the beach and noise pollution.” Cr Gill said there was agreement that: Jet skis should be treated differently to other watercraft, such as paddle boards, and that the “significant increase and inappropriate use” of jet skis meant enforcement would pose a “significant resource challenge”. The meetings were told that jet-ski registrations had jumped 122 per cent to 252,000 in the 10 years to 30 June 2018. There has been a 65 per cent jump in accidents over the same time, with 94 infringements being issued for dangerous use of jet skis over the 2017-18 summer.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Frankston’s Ragged Boys Home to get a new wing Compiled by Cameron McCullough AT the last meeting of the committee of the Ragged Boys’ Home it was reported that 40 boys were in residence at the Frankston Home, and it was agreed that a new wing be added to the home. Mr. J. Menzies, M.L.A. the chairman, announced that a donation of £100 had been promised for this work. Mr. William Brown was elected a member of the committee, and Mr Rushberry was appointed assistant secretary. *** THE date of the next meeting of the Frankston Progress Association has been moved forward a week to avoid the Easter holidays. *** FRANKSTON Repatriation Committee. At the last weekly meeting of this body the resignation of Mr. V. N. Hyndes as hon. secretary was received and accepted. Mr Hyndes has removed up to the city end, and on account of his studies has seen the necessity of applying all his time to this. The committee recognise the very useful work he has done whilst associated with them. Cr Mason was appointed in his stead. *** ATTENTION is directed to new advertisement appearing in this issue. Miss Nellie Thomson advises that she has taken over the dressmaking, millinery, and drapery business lately carried on by Mrs Lee in Young Street, and solicits a share of public patronage.

*** MESSRS May and Picking of Collins Street, Melbourne, announce the merits of “Stimla” which may be procured locally. *** WESTERNPORT Fishing Sections: As the result of last week’s conference between the Chief Inspector of Fisheries, Mr. C.E. Semmens had the representative of the various fishing sections at Westernport, it is likely that regulations will be gazetted reducing the maximum weekly catch for each fisherman from seven bags to five bags of three bushels each. The object of this limitation will be to prolong the life of the deep sea beds, which, under netting conditions, is necessarily limited. Careful provision will also be made, it is understood, for the disposal of the dredged rubbish and oyster shells, attached to which are invariably a quantity of young oysters capable of attaching themselves to new beds if chosen with discrimination. Feed and the nature of ocean current are the main considerations in the selection of such beds, but with the assistance of fishermen it is hoped to prolong the life of the oyster industry at Westernport, which was worth £8000 last year to the various fishingsections, for a considerable period. *** TO THE EDITOR. Sir,— I would deem it a favor if you would publish this letter for the benefit of a certain class of the community who find themselves completely “fuddled” when called upon to exercise their brains. A statement in the circular my wife

used to advertise her intention of opening a dancing class, appears to be the disturbing factor in this case. Such statement reads to the effect that she was, at some time, a pupil of Miss Jennie Brennan. At least one person (of the species to whom “thinking means headache”) found cause to doubt the veracity of that statement, and went to the trouble of sending one of the circulars to Miss Brennan, evidently for verification purposes, or to obtain information that would show my wife to be sailing under false colors. I can quite imagine the feeling of satisfaction the person in question would enjoy on hearing Miss Brennan answer that she “never had a Mrs Fielder as a pupil.” The fact that Mrs Fielder was “Miss Somebody” before she became “Mrs Somebody,” and that it was during the “Miss” period of her life that she was under tuition from Miss Brennan was too soft to penetrate the thick skulls of the “Fuddled Ones”. Should any person of the class referred to feel that they would sleep more peacefully if they were in possession of my wife’s maiden name, I will give the consideration to any personal application at the address appended hereto.—Yours &c., J. H. FIELDER, “Erinville”, Playne St. Frankston. *** Heard in the Train.

That one genial sport of the party in making provision to protect his frame from the biting breeze experienced on the homeward journey, unwittingly succeeded in presenting a physiognomy so like “old Bill” of “Better ‘Ole” renown, that his companions roared with merriment. That Messrs Brody and Mason’s Frankston market on Wednesday attracted a record attendance to compete for a record entry of produce. That the market is a triumph for local enterprise, and is rapidly becoming one of the most important exchanges outside of Melbourne. That Auctioneer Mason did not relish the task of submitting Major Condor’s well-known charger “Midnight” to auction. It was too significant of other charges looming ahead. That Mornington footballers made a bad start for the season by failing to fulfil their engagement with the Frankston club last Saturday. That Frankston players assembled in full force and were considerably disappointed at the non arrival of the neighboring team. That the locals looked quite smart and business like in their new uniforms, and give promise of placing the red and black in a prominent position in the forthcoming competition. That the Frankston team has a solid backer in the clubs president – Mr. E. J. Parker, while their Secretary, Mr Matt. Kemp, seems to have the happy knack of keeping players together.

Sharks swim out of troubled waters DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn SORRENTO have edged out Mt Eliza in a thriller at David Macfarlane Reserve to back up their impressive victory over the Stonecats last week. The Sharks were once again made to fight back from behind, after a five goal to zero second term had the Redlegs 29 points up at the main break. After not making much progress chipping away the deficit in the third term, Sorrento required a massive final quarter to win. A six goals to zip surge in the last quarter saw the Sharks drag themselves over the line in a hard fought 11.13 (79) to 10.11 (71) victory. Luke Lowden and Leigh Poholke scored three goals apiece for the Sharks in their winning effort. Frankston YCW had less trouble in their clash against Mornington, as they made amends for their round one loss in convincing fashion. The Bulldogs looked on the backfoot from the get go, as YCW managed an astonishing 51 shots at goal. Their inaccuracy stopped the margin from blowing out to a disastrous degree. The Stonecats showed their intent to improve in 2019 by securing the win 9.6 (60) to 19.32 (146). Lachlan Street was best afield for the Stonecats, kicking four majors. Jackson Calder did his best for the Bulldogs and scored five. Dromana continue to look right at home playing Division One football, as they got the best of Frankston Bombers. Playing at home, Dromana were able to put the game to bed with a first half in which they held the Bombers goalless. Down 47 points at the main break, the Bombers could do little to fight their way back. Although much better in the second half, the Bombers still succumbed to a disappointing defeat 13.10 (88) to 6.12 (48). At Eric Bell Reserve, Pines continued their premiership defence with a scrappy win over Edithvale-Aspendale. Pines led at each break in the low scoring affair, although Edi-Asp kept in touch. The final score read 9.14 (68) to 7.4 (46). Bonbeach enjoyed a victory over Rosebud at home, thanks to a six goal haul from Joseph Fisscher. Rosebud started well but eventually fell away, losing 12.14 (86) to 9.7 (61). Bonbeach will take on Edithvale-Aspendale in a Good Friday clash at Regents Park this weekend. The action will kick off from 2pm, with both sides looking to move to 2-1 to start the year.

Somerville spoil the Yabbies’ party DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn TYABB brought out the big guns on Saturday with AFL premiership winning forward Travis Cloke running out for a one-off appearance, but their Somerville opponents were out to spoil the party. For the Yabbies it was a day of wasted chances, as they struggled to hit the scoreboard and convert their opportunities into goals. Somerville flexed their own forward line muscles away from home, with Paul Fermanis and Ryan Gillis both booting four. Despite the help from their former Collingwood star, Tyabb fell to defeat 11.16 (82) to 14.18 (102).

PAGE 12

Cloke kicked two for the day. Karingal’s superstar forward recruit had a better day at Chelsea Reserve, booting five majors to help his side to victory against Chelsea. Marc Holt backed up his bag of seven from last week with a bag of five this time around, taking his tally for the year to 16 from three games. The Seagulls were competitive and held the lead going into the final break, but the Bulls proved just too strong and ran away with it 11.7 (73) to 13.10 (88). The win is the Bulls’ third from three games, as they look one of the firm favourites to fight for the premiership this season. At Belvedere Reserve, Seaford se-

cured a huge win over Langwarrin to keep up their fight for promotion back to division one. The Tigers put a competitive contest to bed by tearing the Kangaroos apart in the third quarter. Aaron Walton and Sam Lonie were big contributors for the winning outfit, putting through four goals each to help their side to a 15.16 (106) to 7.11 (53) win. Around the grounds, Red Hill fired a warning shot to the rest of the competition by scoring a ruthless and dominant win over Pearcedale. Pearcedale were helpless against the dazzling Red Hill, with the scoreline reading 96 to zero midway through the third term.

Red Hill were out to make a statement, and the flow of goals never stopped. They claimed the win 24.25 (169) to 2.3 (15). Last year’s grand final losers proved they have what it takes to go one better in 2019. Jonathon Ross scored five goals for the Hillmen, while Harry Wynn-Pope and Jake Mold also had dominant displays. Things were much closer at Glover Reserve, as Devon Meadows clawed over the line against Crib Point. With the lead at each break of play standing at less than a goal, the Magpies stayed right in the contest until the end. Devon Meadows secured the four points as the final siren sounded with

the scoreboard reading 9.14 (68) to 9.3 (57). Playing away from home against Rye, Hastings secured another big win to go two from two in 2019. Star recruit Brendan Fevola has yet to pull on the jumper for the Blues, but that hasn’t stopped them from hitting the ground running this season. Their win takes them up to second in the ladder, only behind Karingal because the Bulls have played an extra game. Luke Hewitt and Taylor Stratton shared the goal kicking responsibility for Hastings with three each, as their side got the best of Rye 8.10 (58) to 11.15 (81).

Council gives Somerville $550,000 SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie SOMERVILLE Eagles have secured significant grants from Mornington Peninsula Shire council. The promotion-chasing State 5 club understands that the council will spend $500,000 on clubrooms at Tyabb Central Reserve while also allocating $50,000 for a feasibility study which it hopes will identify a permanent home for the Eagles. “It’s not official yet but we understand that we’ve been granted the money which is great news for our club,” president Luke Mulder said. The Tyabb Cricket Club shares the reserve and will also benefit from a clubroom upgrade. The feasibility study will centre on Clarendon Reserve in Somerville and will look at the viability of developing three pitches with clubrooms at that venue. Currently the Eagles alternate between playing home games at Tyabb Central Reserve and on a synthetic pitch at Somerville Secondary College. “It’s exciting times for the club and the local community and a great reward for the amount of hard work the committee puts in to running the club and I know how hard they have pushed to get this far,” joint senior coach Scott Morrison said. “It’s been a tough juggling act for the club these past few years having to use different pitches but for everyone in the local community it will be amazing to get this soccer complex across the line in Somerville.” Another benefactor of a funding grant was NPL2 title contender Langwarrin who announced last week that it had secured $375,000 from the federal government’s Community Development Grants Programme. This will fund a stage 1 project to install floodlights on pitch 3 at Lawton Park and electrical upgrades to allow the as yet unfunded stage 2 which will install floodlights on the main pitch and upgrade the current floodlights on the top pitch near the entrance to the complex. The news wasn’t as positive on the main pitch last Saturday when Langy lost its NPL2 clash 1-0 against Manningham United Blues. The home side failed to clear following a long throw-in from the right in the 16th minute allowing Manningham’s Billy Romas to slam the ball home from close range. Last week Langwarrin announced the signing of defender Luke Goulding from Melbourne Victory, younger brother of senior team midfielder Cal-

lum. Luke Goulding is 18 and Langy is able to sign players from other NPL clubs outside the transfer window if they are under-20s. It’s believed that Kingston City midfielder Cooper Legrand remains firmly on Langy’s radar. The Mauritian international can’t be signed until the transfer window opens on 14 May. In State 1 news Mornington got back to winning ways when it downed Mazenod Victory 2-1 at Dallas Brooks Park last Friday night. Veteran striker Nick Waite was the local hero with two goals in the opening eight minutes, the first coming after a mistimed punch from Mazenod keeper Robbie Acs in the first minute. Waite was lurking as usual at the back post and when the ball fell at his feet Mazenod’s fate was sealed. Seven minutes later Waite’s attempted through ball was cut out but he followed up and slammed home a shot from inside the area to give the home side a two-goal cushion. Amir Osmancevic could have ended Mazenod’s hopes in the first few seconds of the second half but his near post header was well parried by Acs. Mazenod scored in the 53rd minute when Rob D’Angelo’s cutback from the left was met first time by Jayson Gucciardo whose low strike gave Mornington keeper Taylor Davidson

little chance. In State 2 news Peninsula Strikers went down 3-0 at home to BoroondaraCarey Eagles. The visitors were 2-0 at half-time and Lachlan Nichols’ second goal in the 72nd minute settled the issue. In State 3 news Frankston Pines received bad news last week when midfielder Cam Bryden was ruled out for the rest of the season with an ACL tear. The injury occurred during the club’s FFA Cup loss to Thornbury Athletic in early March but was initially misdiagnosed and now Bryden requires surgery. Fellow midfielder Joe O’Connor suffered a corked thigh against Whitehorse United on 6 April and could miss another fortnight. Their absence forced head coach Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor to rearrange his side for last Friday’s home clash with Collingwood City. But it was like shuffling deckchairs on the Titanic because Pines were thumped 5-0 by the ladder leader. This Pines side is a far cry from the Pines of old. Too many players wearing the club colours on Friday were non-combative and even pulled out of 50/50 challenges while some of the defending was farcical. Add this to an inability to create chances against a team that closes down well and is good on the ball and

it’s a recipe for disaster. Meanwhile fellow State 3 rival Skye United lost 3-1 to Elwood City at Elwood Park on Saturday. Midfielder Mark O’Connor scored for Skye which is still searching for its first league win of the season as is neighbouring Pines. In State 4 news Baxter earned its first point of the season thanks to a 1-1 draw with fellow struggler Dingley Stars at Baxter Park last weekend. Dingley took the lead in the 38th minute when Baxter was caught on the break and Erman Sepetci raced clear before striking a low shot across Baxter keeper James Foster and in off the far post. Baxter had to wait until the 89th minute for the equaliser and it came from substitute Lewis Gibson’s well-taken penalty conversion. Much has been made of Baxter’s nightmare start to its 2019 campaign but this was a competitive and spirited display albeit against another lowly ranked outfit. Veteran defender Matt McDermott has added some steel to the side and attacks the ball with intent while Nat Daher’s second half was excellent and his eagerness to run at opponents and take them on was a highlight. Fatih Akdogan took over the senior coaching reins at Dingley last week after the club parted company with Billy Armour and Billy Rae. Harry McCartney reports that Seaford United went down 2-1 at home to Endeavour United on Saturday. A fast break from Sebastian Goyenechea in the 13th minute and a welltimed cross should have provided an easy tap in for Endeavour forward Ifeolewa Ogidan but his miscued strike eventually crossed the line despite a defender and Seaford keeper Anthony Madafferi both getting a touch. Conor Mcfall, Jack Carter, Mitch Lander and Naseer Mohammad all had shots on target for the home side only to be denied by Franc Marateo with some solid saves. Lander equalised in the 37th minute after rounding two defenders and effecting a clinical finish and the sides went in locked at 1-1 at the interval. The decider came in the 83rd minute when Madafferi parried and former Langwarrin midfielder Matt Morgan struck a firm shot which Madafferi got a hand to but only succeeded in deflecting the ball into the roof of the net. In State 5 news Aspendale Stingrays recorded their first league win under Lee Barber when they defeated Rosebud 3-1 at Olympic Park last weekend. Pal Calvino scored with a header from a corner in the 14th minute.

ROUND 3 S U N D AY A P R I L 2 1 F R A N KSTO N VS CO B U R G P L AY E D AT P I R A N H A PA R K AT 2 . 1 0 P M

The Stingrays dominated the first half and two goals from Kenan Nuhanovic sent them in at the break with a three-goal cushion. Rosebud’s reply came in the 85th minute after a penalty was awarded for handling and Blake Hicks converted from the spot. Aspendale’s best were Calvino, Kieran Hughes, Peter Dimopoulos and Guilherme Ribeiro. Somerville Eagles bounced back from the previous week’s reversal to beat Pakenham United 2-0 at IYU Reserve on Saturday. Ben Meiklem started on the bench after his switch from Baxter late last week. Somerville talisman Mark Pagliarulo had returned from a holiday on the Gold Coast and gave the visitors the lead in the 40th minute when he rolled his marker and smacked home a low drive. Eagles co-coach Dave Greening had chances to increase the lead but eventually they forged further ahead after good work by Meiklem set up Pagliarulo in the 72nd minute and his firm strike gave Pakenham keeper Jarrod Reynolds no chance. In NPLW news Southern United’s senior and under-19 teams both lost 10-0 to Box Hill United last weekend. Southern’s under-16s won 7-1 with goals from Rhys McKenna (4), Eden McKeown (2) and Danica Vukcevic. Vukcevic’s backheel volley was the most spectacular of the goals but an interpassing move starting from the right-back position involving five players ended with a cheeky sidefoot volley from McKenna for the best team goal of the contest. Southern’s under-14s won 2-1 with goals from Erica-Derrick Sarfo-Sarpong and Rhiannon Kelleher. In FFA Cup action a floodlight failure in the 70th minute last Wednesday forced an abandonment of Skye United’s thrilling round 5 tie away to Upfield with scores locked at 5-5. Skye’s goals came from Mitch Blake (2), Nic Miliaresis (2) and Mark O’Connor. Football Victoria has taken both clubs by surprise by scheduling the replay for Darebin tomorrow night (Tuesday). This week’s games: TUESDAY, 8.30pm: Upfield v Skye Utd (round 5 FFA Cup, Darebin International Sports Centre). THURSDAY, 8pm: Corio v Langwarrin (round 5 FFA Cup, Hume Reserve, North Geelong).

Douglas lands Super win at Caulfield By Ben Triandafillou MORNINGTON-based jockey Clayton Douglas landed his maiden victory at Caulfield on Saturday 13 April. Having had previously ridden at the track four times, the prominent jumps and flat jockey steered the Anthony Freedman-trained hot-pot Super Seth to a last-to-first victory in the opening race. After a six-length debut win, Super Seth overcame a muddling a tempo and an awkward position before ultimately pulling away for a comfortable one-length victory over the Leon and Troy Corstens-trained Stand To Attention. Jockey, Clayton Douglas, said he rode the two-year-old son of Dundeel as if he was the best horse in the field. “From what he did on debut, I sort of knew the sort of horse that I had underneath me – I’ve ridden him in a little bit of trackwork too,” Douglas said. “The boss said to me ‘just be patient, take your time, you know he’s a good horse so just let things unfold’. From the inside draw I was a little bit worried that I could probably get caught up in traffic but I was able to edge my way out and once he got out into open air, he really hit the line hard.” “I haven’t ridden many (classy horses) in a race but I think this one’s pretty good.” That victory provided Douglas with his fifth metropolitan win for the season. It also provided the Freedman stable with their 10th two-year-old winner for the season. Trainer Anthony Freedman said

connections have a decision to make on Super Seth’s immediate future. “(Brisbane’s) an option. We’ve had that in the back of our mind with him as is a race at Flemington on Anzac Day so we’ll work it out. He might even go for a spell,” he said. Freedman also gave an insight into

the pending decision with Godolphin two-year-old Chenier, who was beaten as an odds-on favourite at Sandown last week. Next Saturday’s Group 1 Champagne Stakes at Randwick remains an option but Freedman is thinking of putting an end to his campaign.

“I am leaning towards going for a spell,” he said. “He’s not really a two-year-old. I think he went OK the other day. The track didn’t really work out for him. He’s a big-striding horse and I think he struggled in that soft ground. He’ll be fine in the spring and that’s the way I am leaning.”

Another title for “Sugar Kane” Watts By Melissa Walsh KANE Watts defeated Jayden “Plugger” Joseph to take out the WBA Oceania cruiserweight title at the Melbourne Pavilion on March 1, in a bout that lasted the whole ten rounds. The six foot one, 200 pound boxer whose fighting name is “Sugar Kane” is a peninsula icon, having grown up in the area and playing for the Hastings and Mornington football clubs in his early days. “I started out as a kid when dad used to take me to taekwondo, and then moved onto kick boxing at the Somerville Martial Arts when I was 14,” says Watts, who came back to fighting last September after a two year hiatus. “My dad was training there and I used to go with him for fitness in between footy seasons.” “It was awesome to win the WBA Oceania title after a two year layoff. My first fight was in September and this one was on the cards for December but had to be delayed as I had a broken eye socket,” said Watts, who did eight intensive weeks preparation for the March fight. “I have never fought Plugger before as he is fairly new to the scene, starting about three years ago, but he held the Australian title before this,” he said. “It was a great fight going all ten rounds and I came off fairly unscathed.” With a fatal shooting outside on the night of the boxing tournament, Watts says he was unsure if the fight was even going to go ahead. “We were in the dressing room when a security guard came in and

said to run as there was shooting going on outside,” said Watts of the incident that was an escalation of an ongoing feud linked to a suspicious blaze at a Maribyrnong warehouse. “The match was delayed 40 minutes and we were unaware of what had even happened,” said Watts. “It was not the best lead up having something like that happen.” The title means Watts is rated number 15 in the world in the WBA, and he plans on looking to future fights. “I really enjoy training and the challenge of the fight, which I have been doing since I was a kid,” said Watts whose grandfather used to be a boxer years ago. “They called him the Springvale Kid, and I planned to have my first fight before he passed away.” Watts did have his first fight a month before his grandfather passed and while he couldn’t be there, his pride was always known. “I am also extremely lucky to have the Kings Creek Hotel as my sponsor. The pub in Hastings is an icon and I love that it is back to my home roots where I always used to hang out,” he said.
