Council reveals election campaign wishlist Brodie Cowburn KINGSTON Council has outlined a series of projects they would like to see federal parties commit to in the lead up to the 18 May election. One of council’s requests is for the the development of a sporting facility

at “the delta site,” a 34 hectare space in the green wedge on Kingston Road. Council is also asking for investment into the green wedge for a pipeline to pump recycled water for use on gardens, golf courses and parklands. Council is asking for investment into sports by way of an upgrade to Kingston Heath Reserve, home of the Bentleigh Greens.

Transport investments have also made council’s wishlist, with improved safety at Moorabbin airport and the “creation of a freight rail hub in Dandenong South” to help reduce the number of trucks on roads being advocated for. Transport investment around the “monash jobs hub” has also been asked for. Increased action on climate change

and improved bandwidth speeds close out council’s campaign wishlist. The mayor Georgina Oxley said “these key regional projects would make a significant difference by investing in vital transport, infrastructure and sporting facilities.” “In the lead up to 18 May election we’re calling on all parties to commit to supporting these key projects

and investing in the local community. We’re keen to work in partnership with the Australian government to deliver high quality services to Kingston and the entire region,” she said. Further details on council’s advocacy plan can be found at kingston.vic.

TWO new purpose built netball courts at Bonbeach Reserve have been officially opened. Kingston councillors David Eden and Georgina Oxley were on hand to officially signal the opening of the new courts. The development of those

courts was greenlit by council in 2017. The new courts include floodlighting to help illuminate the play. Carrum MP Sonya Kilkenny also attended the opening. “More netball courts means more women in sport, and that’s a very good thing,” she said.

“The new courts will give the Bonbeach Football Netball Club the opportunity to play an even bigger role in increasing the numbers of girls and women participating in community sport.”

Conquered cancer cause for centre celebration Cameron McCullough THE Gateway shopping centre in Langwarrin is turning pink to raise much needed funds for Breast Cancer Network Australia. The week-long event, running from 29 April until 5 May, will see stores in the centre turning pink, a barbeque and raffle tickets being sold. The event was inspired by Sally Bell, who works at McKays Quality Meats in the centre, and her recent battle with breast cancer. “I was the fittest I’d been for ten years, and feeling fantastic, when I got the shock call after my regular mammogram,” said Mrs Bell. “Follow up testing showed I had early stage cancer in my breast. While everybody else was celebrating on New Years Eve, I was having a breast and my ovaries removed!” The mother of three was off work for four weeks, recovering from the surgery. “When I got back to work, my boss said he wanted to do something in recognition of my battle with cancer.” Brett Thompson, the owner of McKays Quality Meats at The Gateway, originally envisaged turning his business pink, and placing a tin on the counter. But things quickly escalated when the centre’s management caught wind of his idea. Soon, the plan had changed to turn the entire centre pink. During the week, raffle tickets are being sold by The Gateway ‘walking group’ with the over $4000 of prizes

A new life: Sally Bell is looking forward to life after cancer, including spending time with her newly arrived grand daughter, Evie-Mae. Picture: Andrew Hurst

donated by the centre’s retailers. Prizes include a signed and framed jumper from the Sydney Swans, a year’s membership to Jetts Fitness, more than $600 worth of gift cards from different stores, a children’s bike from Stockdale and Leggo plus much more. There will also be a sausage sizzle on the Saturday with the CFA.

The prizes will be drawn Sunday 5th May at 11am. As for Mrs Bell, she is “tickled pink” at the event, and hopes it raises awareness and funds for Breast Cancer Network Australia. “I really was one of the lucky ones. The care I got at Frankston Hospital was amazing, and I am now back to full health.

“I am extremely grateful to Brett for all the support he gave me while I was ill, and now I have beaten this, nothing is going to hold me back,” Mrs Bell is hopeful her story will raise awareness of breast cancer and educate other women. “It just drives home to me how important those regular screenings are. If I had put my mammogram off, my outcome could have been totally different. The message is clear for other women. Go and get your screening. Don’t even think about putting it off!” Breast cancer is the most common cancer affecting Australian women. In 2019 it is estimated that 19,535 Australians will be diagnosed with breast cancer – this includes 150 men. This works out to be 53 Australians diagnosed each day. Breast Cancer Network Australia supports, informs and connects Australians affected by breast cancer. They have a range of resources to help people through their breast cancer journey and make decisions that are the best for them, They hold information forums across the country, run an online network for those affected by breast cancer, and a phone support line. Anyone who has been affected by breast cancer can call the BCNA Helpline on 1800 500 258 or visit for information and support.

Council drops support for ANZAC service Brodie Cowburn FRANKSTON RSL president Kevin Hillier is “frustrated” by Frankston Council’s decision to pull in-kind support for their ANZAC Day memorial service. Mr Hillier said that the sudden pulling of council support would prove a $35,000 hit for the RSL. “Frankston Council have been helping us for as long as I can remember, and I’ve been here for 16 years. The service has grown since then, but this year they’ve basically decided to stop all the funding. This has suddenly become a $35,000 expense. They’ve told us after this year we’ll get nothing,” he said. “ANZAC Day is a national day of remembrance. It’s actually a community event, it’s not the RSL’s job to do it all. It’s our job to implement the service, but now council have moved down this track and will only be providing very minimal support this year.” The RSL has held their annual ANZAC Day service at the Frankston War Memorial since 2016. Mr Hillier said the growth in attendance and interest since moving there had made running the event more expensive. “For many years council had provided chairs and a lectern, all gratis. Since 2016, council have been providing audio, chairs, they’ve paid for safety audits, and provided someone from events team to work in conjunction with us. In 2014 we had complaints from people that they couldn’t see or hear the service. Last year we’d done

a bit extra and got two big screens, and we decided to pay a little bit towards that. Now this year they’ve decided to stop all the funding,” he said. “The Frankston RSL looks after our veterans, we do a lot for the community, we sponsor sporting clubs and we put money into the community. When something like this comes up it’s very

frustrating.” Mr Hillier said that the RSL was only made aware of council’s decision in February. He said the RSL would “fight like hell” for council support, but committed to continue to hold the services. “We will push forward. We won’t stop doing them, but it’s money that could be better spent on our veterans.”

Frankston mayor Michael O’Reilly told The News that support for the RSL would be lowered to that “offered to all community groups.” “Financial support was provided as agreed to between the Frankston RSL and Frankston Council for the specific purpose of the centenary commemorations, after which council support

returned to the levels afforded to all community groups. Council has previously provided in-kind support to the Frankston RSL in the form of tables, chairs and a lectern for the commemorative services,” Cr O’Reilly said. “Council recognises the importance and significance in commemorating ANZAC Day and how valuable these commemorations are to the community. As with other community groups who organise events in Frankston City, the events team and other council departments will continue to work with the Frankston RSL.” The move was condemned by federal Liberal MP Chris Crewther and state Labor MP Paul Edbrooke on social media. “With $1.39 million spent on councillor notices of motion this financial year and $22 million in surplus, I think you can afford to reprioritise and help the Frankston RSL appropriately acknowledge the people who have sacrificed their lives to make our community safe,” Mr Edbrooke said. Mr Crewther said “if any events should be supported by council during the year, it should be days like ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day in particular. In my view, it is terrible that council plans to withdraw their support for services honouring our veterans and I strongly request that they reconsider their decision to withdraw all financial and in kind support.” Frankston RSL’s dawn service on ANZAC Day will take place at the Frankston War Memorial. Proceedings begin at 5.45am.

Support for hospital’s x-ray vision FRANKSTON Hospital will get a new x-ray machine after a promise of more money from the state government. The machine is paid for under a grant from the Medical Equipment Replacement Program and Engineering Infrastructure program. Premier Daniel Andrews and health minister Jenny Mikakos vis-

ited the hospital alongside Frankston MP Paul Edbrooke to announce the grant. “Doctors and nurses at Frankston Hospital do an amazing job providing the very best care for patients. We’re supporting them with the cutting edge equipment they need to save lives,” Mr Edbrooke said. “New state of the art equipment

and better hospital infrastructure will make sure more Victorians can get the world class care they need, when they need it, closer to home. The new x-ray machine will provide improved image quality and diagnostics capability, provide OH and S benefits through ergonomic design, and reduce radiation dose for patients in Frankston.”

KINGSTON Council has splashed out $2.49 million on a property in Moorabbin to “improve pedestrian access between Moorabbin Junction and Moorabbin Reserve.” The property at 2 Horscroft Place will be turned into green space. The mayor Georgina Oxley said the “purchase will encourage commuters to catch a train and walk to the redeveloped home of St Kilda Football Club and beyond, to Holmesglen Tafe and Holmesglen Private Hospital.” “This green space will better connect the community and visitors to Moorabbin Reserve, and provide much needed additional green space for the suburb’s growing population,’ she said. St Kilda Football Club CEO Matt Finnis said “the most appealing aspect of returning to Moorabbin was the chance to reconnect with the community in our heartland. One of the great strengths of the sporting precinct is the number of community groups who benefit from the facilities.” “Improving the access from Moorabbin junction is an important step in increasing the accessibility to the facilities, particularly as more community assets come online,” he said. Council spent $5 million on “stage one” works at the facility in 2017. Cr Oxley said the “stage two” works at Moorabbin Reserve will “see the addition of a new aquatic facility, a 1000 seat grandstand, increased car parking spaces and facilities to accommodate a woman’s football league.” Those works are scheduled to finish at the end of the year.

They are truly inspirational with their enthusiasm, questions and ideas.”

Brisk motor car business over Easter Compiled by Cameron McCullough The Peninsula Motor Garage Pty. Ltd. has added a Siddeley Densey motor car to its already fine flock of motor cars at the Mornington branch of the company. At the Frankston branch of the company during Easter week quite a number of visitors were daily noticed viewing the company’s superior 35 h.p. Itala. The general opinion was that no Victorian garage has a superior car plying for hire. Business was exceptionally brisk at the local garage, during Easter week. *** THE members of the Vestry of St Paul’s Church of England, Frankston had smiling faces after the Easter offering had been totalled. To use the secretary’s own words the response was excellent. *** FAREWELL to Major Conder. The public meeting held at Frankston on Thursday evening decided to entertain Major Conder at a banquet on the 8th May. Cr Oates was made Chairman of committee, and Cr. Mason secretary. It was also decided to arrange a social on a date to be fixed, and in another column the chairman invites the public to attend at the Mechanics’ Hall next Monday evening to arrange further details. *** MORNINGTON Peninsula Football Association. Delegates from Frankston, Mornington, Somerville, Hastings and Dromana Clubs met at Somerville on Wednesday evening.

The association was reformed and officers appointed for the year (A full report will appear in our next issue). The draw for the first round of matches resulted as follows: May 10 – Mornington v. Hastings; May 17 – Frankston v. Dromana; May 24th – Somerville, a bye. The games to be played on the ground of the first mentioned club. *** REV G. S. Lloyd, of Carnegie, will preach at Frankston on Sunday morning next, and at Somerville 3 and 7 p.m. in connection with the Sunday School Anniversary. *** FOR Children’s Hacking Cough Woods’ Great Peppermint Cure. 1s 9d and 2s 9d. *** DRIVER Hay returned home on Saturday night, and there was great rejoicing at Frankston House. Private E. Kinsman arrived home yesterday (Friday), and the town was beflagged in his honor. To celebrate the home-coming of Lieutentant W. Pentland, of the 46th Battalion, who has just returned from three years’ active service in Egypt and France, a week-end party was arranged at “The Ark,’ Frankston. Motoring was enjoyed during the day and music in the evenings, when Mr Lou. Murton (at the piano) was assisted by Mr. D. Kilgour and Mr Smitham. *** WE regret to learn that Mrs C. Tait of “Inverkeithing” Frankston, has been very ill, we are hoping for a speedy recovery.

*** MR S. Pearce, of “The Plaza” Frankston is able to be about again after several days illness which contained him to his room. *** PRIVATE Percy Darcy arrived by the Derbyshire on Tuesday after an absence of 3 years at the front. He is a brother of our townsman Mr G. Darcy who is also a returned man. Two other brothers of the same family have yet to arrive from which it will be seen that the Darcys took more than a small share in the great struggle. *** THE close of hostilities has brought about the demobilisation of many local soldiers among whom we note Lieut. W. Fisher, so well and favorably known to Frankston. With the single exception of Capt. Sherlock no local officer was more highly respected. For years he was a permanent member of the Frankston rifle club. His love for the profession of arms enabled him to fill the various positions from Private to Adjutant and in several occasions he was acting O.C at Langwarrin camp. He fought at Gallipoli and returned a commissioned officer badly wounded. *** TO raise funds for an Oakleigh family in distress, Miss Marion Montgomery and other horsewomen, assisted by members of the Melbourne Hunt Club have organised a gymkhana for Saturday, on the Oakleigh Cricket Ground.

None the less, members of the State Parliament, while insistently demanding economy from the Administration, in consequence of the public outcry against extravagance, showed little disposition to curtail the work of the board, having in view the great value of that work as a developmental factor. Every year since its formation the board has been enabled accordingly to carry out considerable sections of the roads on its original plans. During this year the contracts let since 1st. July last for permanent works carried out with loan money have involved the expenditure of £218,900, allocated among 89 municipalities. The contracts for maintenance work total £57,000. The board is also pushing on with work under the Developmental Roads Act, passed in March, 1918, and the contracts let since 1st. July, 1918, for the construction of developmental roads have reached £91,000. Up to the present 22 shires are involved in these contracts, and a large proportion of this number belong to the Gippsland and Otway Forest districts. During the year the board has investigated numerous applications for roads to be constructed under the Developmental Roads Act, and has inspected 140 different roads in 45 municipalities. *** FROM the pages of the Mornington Standard, 26 April 1919

Stonecats stop unbeaten start DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn DROMANA’S impressive start to life in the first division of the MPNFL has come to an end, after they were defeated by Frankston YCW on Saturday. The Tigers so far had an unbeaten start in 2019, but were bested by the powerhouse Stonecats at John Coburn Oval. YCW were decent to start with, but Dromana stuck in and stayed within reach. The hard fought contest saw both teams struggle to hit the scoreboard, with the Tigers behind by ten points at half time. After the main break YCW broke the game apart, getting the upper hand with a six goals to two third term. Frankston YCW ran away with it in the end, and claimed victory 16.18 (114) to 9.8 (62). Lachlan Street was best afield for YCW for the second week in a row, kicking four majors. At Eric Bell Reserve, Pines were able to stamp their authority with a comprehensive win over Mornington. The reigning premiers were on top the entire afternoon, and were most impressive in defence. The Bulldogs only kicked one goal each in the first three quarters of the match. Guy Hendry was in form in front of goal and kicked four, helping the Pythons to a 13.13 (91) to 7.7 (49) win. Jackson Calder kicked four for the losing side. Another of the premiership favourites

this year is Sorrento, and they proved their credentials with a massive win on the road against Rosebud. Leigh Poholke was in red hot form for the Sharks, kicking seven goals to help his side to a massive 90 point victory. Things were close up until half time, with Rosebud only behind by 14 points at the main break. In the second half it was an onslaught, with the Sharks scoring 14 goals and Rosebud scoring two. When the final siren sounded the scoreboard read Rosebud 5.6 (36) to 19.12 (126). Frankston Bombers had a worse day than their cross town rivals as they went down to Mt Eliza at Emil Madsen Reserve. A close contest up until half time, Frankston Bombers were in with a chance and only behind by less than a kick at the main break. The Redlegs ran away with it in the second half, with a five goals to one final quarter sealing the deal. Mt Eliza defeated the Bombers 13.13 (91) to 7.12 (54). The script read just about the same at Regents Park, as a contest that was close at half time ended up blowing out to a comprehensive win. Edithvale-Aspendale would have fancied their chances at home, and were behind their Bonbeach opponents by two points at the main break. Bonbeach were hugely impressive in the second half, and ended up securing the win 10.5 (65) to 16.24 (120). Tom Lamb kicked five for Edi-Asp.

Fevola kicks five in MPNFL debut DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn BRENDAN Fevola ran out for his MPNFL debut on Saturday in front of a big home crowd at Hastings. The Blues took on Devon Meadows, who were looking to spoil the occasion. Devon Meadows started well and led at quarter time, but were eventually made to pay for inaccurate kicking. Coleman medallist Fevola was getting plenty of the footy for the Blues, and ended up kicking five goals for the game. Had he been more accurate in front of goal, it would have been a lot more. Both sides struggled to convert on their chances, but eventually it was Hastings who came out on top, with Fevola celebrating his debut with a win. Hastings claimed victory over Devon Meadows 13.18 (96) to 5.19 (49). At Crib Point Recreation Reserve, it was Red Hill who proved to the rest of the competition that they are the team to beat in 2019. Travelling to take on Crib Point, Red Hill were absolutely dominant. Coming off a huge win last week, the Hillmen managed to put together an even more complete performance. Crib Point failed to kick a goal for the entire afternoon. The siren sounded to put them out of their misery with the final scoreboard reading 0.3 (3) to

27.12 (174). Harry Larwill kicked nine goals for the Hillmen. Jonathon Ross and Sean Marchetti kicked four each. Another premiership favourite in Karingal also claimed a big win over the weekend, as they got the better of Seaford. The Bulls got started on the right foot, getting things kicked off with a six goals to one first term. Seaford were little hope of clawing their way back after that, and succumbed to defeat 15.12 (102) to 7.7 (49). Karingal forward Marc Holt kicked seven goals to take his total for the year to 23 from four games. With the Bulls flying to start the year, the recruitment of Holt looks to be a huge success. The closest match of the weekend took place at Lloyd Park, as Langwarrin hosted Somerville. The Eagles were on top early, and looked as if they would run out with a comfortable victory. They were up by five goals at three-quarter time, but Langwarrin worked hard in the final term to chip that back. Despite a four goals to one final term, Langwarrin were defeated 13.9 (87) to 16.10 (106). At RJ Rowley Reserve, Rye scored a comfortable victory over Tyabb. Tyabb led at half time but Rye ran over the top of them in the second half. Rye claimed the win over Tyabb 16.12 (108) to 6.14 (50). Chelsea Mordialloc Mentone News 24 April 2019



Crook steals it for Skye United SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie WHAT Jonathan Crook did to Upfield last week was night-time robbery. The big man from Matamata Swifts effected a string of remarkable saves to keep Skye’s nose in front and keep Upfield’s onslaught at bay in a pulsating FFA Cup tie. Try as it might Upfield could not find a way past Crook and Skye held on for a 1-0 win that clinched one of 32 Victorian spots remaining in the 2019 national competition. This clash had to be replayed after a floodlight failure in the 70th minute at Aston Fields in Craigieburn had forced an abandonment a week earlier with scores locked at 5-5. Now both sides were forced to travel to Darebin on a Tuesday night thanks to a bizarre Football Victoria decision and Skye was staring down the barrel as injury had claimed Gerard Lawler, Daniel Attard and Harrison Michaelis. However the local side was the benefactor of Aaryn Rix’s brief flirtation with Baxter and the new signing featured in the starting line-up. Skye scored in the 8th minute when a precise Mark O’Connor free-kick was powered home by the head of Daniel Walsh, his fifth goal of the competition. This was the cue for a bombardment of the Skye goal but a string of Crook saves kept Skye ahead while a rare chance on the break saw Jason Nowakowksi miss an opportunity to double the lead. Nothing changed in the second half as Upfield laid siege to the Skye goal and Billy Painting, John Andrinopoulos, O’Connor, Walsh and Nowakowski all received cautions. Skye midfielder Jack Gallagher was red carded in the 70th minute and despite Upfield breaking through on a number of occasions Crook was unbeatable. Skye gaffer Phil McGuinness was still marvelling at his keeper’s display the following day. “I’ve never seen a goalkeeper put on a display like that at amateur level,” McGuinness said. “It was unbelievable and when you have the opposition supporters applauding your performance you know you’ve done something right. “He’s an excellent keeper and I’m just glad I got to witness a display like that.” Upfield later congratulated Crook on its facebook page describing his effort as “exceptional”. Last Thursday night a second local club reached the round of 32 when

Langwarrin took care of business against State League 2 North-West ladder leader Corio with a 4-1 win at Hume Reserve in North Geelong. Despite this being a potential banana skin for the visitors Langy head coach Scott Miller gave debuts to former Melbourne Victory youngsters Luke Goulding and Dionis Shabani with Goulding playing as a central defender in a 3-2-4-1 formation and Shabani joining Jordan Templin as an attacking midfielder. Although Langy enjoyed the bulk of possession in the first half it took an own goal to give it a slender half-time lead. Five minutes into the second period Corio striker Alessandro Stefano equalised with a header but three goals in six minutes sealed the home side’s fate. Roddy Covarrubias was gifted a tap-in in the 60th minute after Corio keeper Tom Banks mishandled. Two minutes later Johnny Kuol made it 3-1 when he rounded his opponent at the far post and slotted home from close range. A trademark David Stirton free-kick bent around the defensive wall in the 66th minute completed the scoreline. Langy head coach Scott Miller is keen to take the side deep into the prestigious competition while maintaining its promotion challenge in NPL2 East. “A good cup run gives the club great exposure,” Miller said. “It’s a brilliant tournament and having worked with Foxsports last year and seen a number of games I think it’s a great concept. “For Langwarrin to be potentially playing an A-League club within four games would be amazing.”

Sudoku and crossword solutions

But Miller’s focus now turns to the club’s league campaign with a challenging away fixture on Friday night against Moreland Zebras. Jaiden Madafferi has recovered from injury and is available for Friday’s match while Wayne Wallace returns from suspension. In State 3 news Frankston Pines recorded its first win of the season when it downed Monash Uni 2-0 at Tatterson Park in Keysborough on Saturday. This home match for Monash was mired in controversy as it could have been played a few weeks ago but the university side refused to reverse the fixtures and play on a Friday night under lights at Monterey Reserve, an option offered when it became known that Monash playing fields would be unavailable. Football Victoria’s competitions department had allocated pitch three, a grass pitch, for Saturday’s clash but Monash successfully argued that it had booked the venue’s synthetic pitch with the local council and that the game must be played there. The heat made conditions oppressive and Pines had keeper Alfonso Cardinale to thank for a 1-0 half-time lead after Monash had fashioned the better chances. Winger Sarmad Nikakhter was a constant menace down the left and could have put Monash ahead from a tight angle in the 5th minute but Cardinale spread himself well and blocked at the near post. In the 19th minute Pines’ central defender Cedric Benza was caught in possession but Cardinale saved his teammate’s blushes when he effected a superb smother to deny Nikakhter in a one-on-one. Pines broke the deadlock five min-

utes from half-time with a superbly constructed interpassing move down the right involving Stefan Soler, Travis Ernsdoerfer, CJ Hodgson and Jason Bradbury with Bradbury’s low drive from inside the area beating Monash keeper Alex Grantham. Two minutes into the second half Nikakhter pounced on a defensive lapse from Bailey Atkinson and hammered a low shot that cannoned off the near post and in the 53rd minute there were howls of protest from the Monash bench after Cardinale charged off his line and clashed with Arnie Clever leaving the winger sprawling on the ground as the referee waved play on. In the 65th minute Pines constructed a flowing move down the left and when Soler was brought down the referee had little hesitation in pointing to the spot. Again Monash was unhappy and it was touch and go whether or not the offence was inside the area. Up stepped Hodgson who had no trouble converting and for the first time this season Pines were cruising. Serge Yanez had come on in the second half and his link-up play with Soler, Hodgson and Ernsdoerfer was a feature. Soler broke through in the 69th minute and should have put Monash out of its misery but Grantham did well to get a touch and send the ball out for a corner. A cheeky Yanez backheel in the 73rd minute sent the impressive Kevin Brown scooting down the left and his cross to the edge of the box was met by a superb diving header from Soler and Grantham was at full stretch as he parried. In the 80th minute Soler again broke clear into a one-on-one with Grantham only to shoot wide of the far post when he could have taken another touch. While Pines were good value for the three points no-one is getting carried away at Monterey Reserve with success against one of the poorer sides in the league.




Chelsea Mordialloc Mentone News 24 April 2019

Pines gaffer Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor used a different formation for this match with Bradbury and Hodgson up front and Ernsdoerfer freed up to play in behind them. “You could see the confidence of the players rise during the course of the game,” said Taylor. “I thought we were okay in the first half but lacked penetration however we trialled a new system on the Tuesday and Thursday and players were still adapting to it. “The win was important though to kickstart our season, very important.” Daniel Mota, Connor McAndrews and Alex Bevacqua were unavailable but will come into contention for this weekend’s away fixture against Brighton. In State 1 news Mornington defender Josh Valadon has had his suspension for being sent off against Casey Comets reduced from five to three matches. Comets midfielder Brodie Paterson was suspended for two years for his sending off in the same match. He was also directed to write a letter of apology to Mornington midfielder Sam Catherine. Paterson’s suspension starts after he completes a respect and responsibility course and should he wish to register to play after serving his suspension he must complete another respect and responsibility course. In State 4 news Seaford United is hosting a past members’ day for players and supporters at North Seaford Reserve on Saturday 4 May starting at 11.30am. The event is part of Seaford’s 50th anniversary celebrations and a past players’ match will take place before the reserves and seniors take on Keysborough.

Written By signs off from racing By Ben Triandafillou CHAMPION two-year-old colt and Group One winner, Written By, has been retired to Widden Stud in the Hunter Valley on Monday 15 April. Trained by Mornington-based racehorse trainer Grahame Begg and raced by Hall of Fame trainer, and Grahame’s father, Neville Begg, the speedy son of Written Tycoon has been key to Grahame’s successful return to the training ranks. The former Sydney-based trainer of 25 years spent more than three years out of the game before returning and landing his first Group One victory back with Written By in the 2018 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m). “He was the catalyst for us to kick off again,” Begg said. The homebred colt kicked off his career in perfect fashion winning his first four starts in succession highlighted by his dominant two and a half-length victory of the Blue Diamond Stakes. Sent to Sydney for the Golden Slipper, Written By was an easy winner of the Group Two ATC Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) and was then the first colt home in the Golden Slipper behind Estijaab, Oohood and Sunlight. The homebred colt went on to run some great races in his three-year-old season including a fourth placing in the Group One Coolmore Stud Stakes where he finished one and a half lengths off the victor, Sunlight. Having trained Written By’s sire, Written Tycoon, and raced his mother Yau Chin, Begg said there was always something a little bit special about

racing the colt. “There was a lot of synergy there,” he said. “He was pretty straight forward as far as soundness goes, he was just a full on two-year-old – he just got up and ran.”

“I would have liked his three-yearold runs to be a little bit better but in saying that he was beaten just under two-lengths in the Coolmore. Then in the Lightning Stakes he only got beaten about two lengths in that, so he really has been a very, very good

horse.” But for his career on the racetrack, Begg said it felt like the right time to retire his star colt. “If we waited another 12 months, he’d be four rising five and for us it was a good time for him to head to

stud,” he said. “He arrived safe and sound. He’s looking outstanding and looked brilliant when he left.” Written By will now stand his first season at Widden Stud at a fee of $24,750 including GST.
