Councillors signal concern over stabling Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au IN the wake of a decision to turn land in Heatherton into train stabling, Kingston Council will consider writing to the state government to declare the preservation of the Green Wedge and the Chain of Parks project as “fundamentally important to Kingston’s community”. At the end of last year the former

Delta site on Kingston Road, Heatherton, was acquired by the state government for use as stabling for the Suburban Rail Loop. Council had earmarked the land for its Chain of Parks project – to be used as a regional sporting facility (“Stabling planned for potential park space”, The News, 23/12/20). At their 27 January meeting, councillors will debate writing to the transport, planning, and environment ministers to again advocate for focus

on the Chain of Parks. The state government committed $25 million in funding to the Chain of Parks prior to its re-election in 2018. Kingston mayor Steve Staikos called on the government to follow through on that promise in December last year, and councillors will consider advocating for it again on Wednesday. The motion councillors will vote on also “calls on the Suburban Rail Loop Authority and the state government to conduct a meaningful information

and consultation process with the Cheltenham, Heatherton and Clarinda communities on this issue”. “Council requests that state government work closely with council and the community, in particular the directly affected local residents of Cheltenham, Heatherton and Clarinda, to ensure their needs and concerns are adequately represented throughout the project and recognise that the proposed station and Sir William Fry Reserve and the Stabling Yard have

much wider implications and flowon adverse impacts to all surrounding residents,” the motion reads. The motion notes that council will “recognise and articulate the concerns and issues raised by the community on the current proposed location and its damaging impact to the natural environment including the local flora and fauna” through the state government’s environmental effects statement process for the Suburban Rail Loop.

Rail to Rosebud is part of wider plan URBAN planning graduate and public transport advocate Robert Whitehill (pictured) says his dream of constructing a rail line to Rosebud under the first stage of his Peninsula Rail Link project would cost $6.1 - $7.5 billion. His project, which he began in 2012 as a “potential” train line running from Frankston to Rosebud, has since evolved into planning for better rail and bus services across the peninsula – including upgrading the Stony Point line (“All aboard for $20 billion rail ride to Rosebud” The News 11/1/21). Mr Whitehill said financial projections for stage one includes high-capacity signaling, triplication and grade separation through Mordialloc, and two new platforms at Frankston. They also include new buses and regional trains as well as the Stony Point line’s duplication. Over time, the two-stage project would connect the peninsula to the Melbourne CBD using the Frankston and Cranbourne rail links. Mr Whitehill says people have been put off by suggestions the project’s initial stages – just getting trains to Rosebud – would cost $20 billion. “This is not the case,” he said, admitting that errors in his initial estimates had increased the costs of the second stage to $14.7-$17 billion, pushing the totals of both stages to $20.8-$24.5 billion. Mr Whitehill said the project began as an investigation into running a rail line along the peninsula’s west coast. “I found the concept so feasible that I decided it should become a reality and have been pushing for it to happen ever since,” he said. “With summer seeing a mass exodus onto the peninsula there is always going to be a surge in transport demand that the road network

alone can’t handle. It happens every year.” Mr Whitehill, who earned a Bachelor of Urban and Regional Planning (Honours) in 2018, says he has presented the idea to politicians and “piqued the interest of many”.

“Council has been supporting businesses through this entire process, from application through to installation. Over the coming weeks we look forward to rolling out more parklets in Highett and Aspendale,” he said. “This is just one of the many ways that Kingston Council has been helping hospitality businesses to recover from COVID-19 trading restrictions. Council has been working with businesses to find practical ways to assist them to expand their outdoor dining

options, while still ensuring they are COVID-safe. “Council has waived fees for outdoor dining permits and dining popup licenses and has been streamlining application processes wherever outdoor dining can be safely established.” Permits for the temporary parklets expire on 29 June, 2021. The outdoor parklets can be found in Mordialloc at The Sporting Globe, Chilled@Mordy, Siesta Café, Mordi Supper Club, and Mordi Cellar Door.

Intersection reopens WORKS on the intersection at Wells Road and Thames Promenade have finished early. The intersection shut on 2 January to allow for the demolition of the roundabout. Lights have been installed and cars are now back on the road. Major Road Projects Victoria says that “while the road was closed, we removed more than 4800 square metres of materials to remove the roundabout and widen the road, laid 2650 tonnes of

material for the base of the new intersection, placed 5000 tonnes of asphalt, installed new public lighting, and switched on the traffic lights.” “Now that we’ve built the new intersection, we’ll close the southbound exit ramp at Thames Promenade that was temporarily open during the closure. We’ll complete the finishing touches while we build the northbound entry ramp and open them permanently in late 2021.”

NEW outdoor dining parklets have begun to open up. Kingston Council fast-tracked the approval process for temporary outdoor dining spaces last year. Six new parklets have now opened up across Mordialloc and Moorabbin. Kingston mayor Steve Staikos said these are “the first of several parklets we’ll start to see temporarily replacing car parking spaces in Kingston, to help cafes and restaurants provide additional capacity for diners, while remaining COVID-safe.”

A FREE clinic to help teach boaters how to maintain their life jackets is coming to Patterson Lakes Transport Safety Victoria’s FloatSafe program pilot began this month. MSV recreational boating safety manager Gareth Johnson said “if you’ve fallen into the water unexpectedly and you get yourself in trouble, having a life jacket that doesn’t inflate isn’t much good to you.” “If you own an inflatable lifejacket in Victoria, you should be performing regular checks to make sure it is going to work when you need it. This program is about familiarising boaters with their lifejackets so that they can conduct these checks effectively.” FloatSafe attendees also receive a $30 voucher from a local retailer for a new lifejacket, service kit, or other safety equipment. The clinic runs at Patterson Lakes on 17 February at 4pm, 5pm, 6pm,

THE MPNFL season is all set to start under lights. The newly installed light towers at Frankston Park will get a run when the ground hosts Pines and Frankston YCW in a blockbuster Round One clash. Frankston YCW confirmed the news on 21 January. “Tonight, after 12 months of planning, Pines Football Netball Club President Jeff Svigos, Frankston Dolphins Football Club CEO Adrian Lloyd and Stonecats

President Andrew Schneider finalised the agreement to play the first MPNFL game under the new lights at SkyBus Stadium,” the club said. The match will take place on 9 April. The lighting towers were installed at Frankston Park last year. The project was funded through $850,000 from the federal government, $650,000 from the state government, and $1.3 million from council ratepayers. Council touts the new lights as around nine times more powerful than

the previous lights. Illumination levels are expected to exceed 500 lux a maximum of six times a year, but the lights will be switched off by 10.30pm on those occasions.

Shop break-ins investigated A MAN who broke into a chemist, automotive shop, and bottle shop over the New Year period is wanted by police. Police believe a man broke into and stole tools from an automotive store on Berwick-Cranbourne Road, Clyde North, on 29 December. The next night the man broke into a bottle shop on South Gippsland Highway, Cranbourne North, and stole multiple boxes of alcohol. Police also believe the man broke into a chemist on New Year’s Day. Police said in a statement that the man is “believed to be Caucasian in appearance, aged between 35 to 50-years-old, and was driving a blue

1998-2005 Holden Astra CD 5 door model with nil plates. On each occasion the man was wearing a distinctive blue and grey cap with a red emblem and reflective rims.” CCTV images of a man police wish to speak to has been released. Anyone who recognises him or has information can contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au.

observe marine safety laws, local by-laws, or those who commit criminal and anti-social behaviour – there will be no warnings. We just want people to think particularly when they’re on and next to the water. I can assure the greater community that police won’t hesitate in holding offenders to account if people don’t obey the rules.”

A MAN is believed to be stealing mail across Frankston and Seaford. Frankston Crime Investigation Unit are investigating the recent thefts, which occurred over the Christmas and New Year period. Police say that they are looking for a man who they describe as “large, heavy set male with short hair and a goatee beard can assist them with their enquiries”. “Frankston CIU understands that a number of people on local Facebook groups have made comments as to being victims of these thefts,” a statement on the police eyewatch social media page read. “Anyone who has had their mail stolen during this period, and who may also have any CCTV or images of the incident, is urged to report it to Frankston Police Station on (03) 9784 5555.”

‘Poached’ abalone seized SEVEN men were arrested and 50kg of abalone seized in a joint operation by Mornington police and Fisheries officers last week. Two men were nabbed as they beached their boat south of the town, 2.50pm, Tuesday 19 January, allegedly with 20kg of abalone aboard. Five others were intercepted at 8pm on the Mornington-Tyabb Road allegedly with 30kg of abalone inside their car. The day was a no-take day for the valuable shellfish. Acting Sergeant Cam Fields said diving equipment and two cars used in the alleged poaching were also seized and that many of the abalone had been undersized. He said most were able to be returned to the water unharmed. The men, from Cranbourne, Hampton Park and Endeavour Hills, were charged with taking a commercial quantity of abalone and bailed to appear at Dromana Magistrate’s Court next month. Acting Sergeant Fields said strict bail conditions prohibited the men from being within five kilometres of Victorian marine waters. This means they cannot go near any marine waterway, such as beaches, rivers or lakes, or be found in possession of any dive equipment, such as goggles or flippers, at least until the court date in February. Other restrictions are aimed at reducing their risk of reoffending and ensuring their appearance at court. Further investigations may result in new charges being laid, Acting Sergeant Fields said. Anyone seeing or suspecting illegal fishing is being carried out is asked to call iFISH on 133 474.

Patrolling Port Phillip A POLICE operation will dedicate more resources to monitoring Port Phillip Bay over the long weekend. Operation “Unity” runs from 24 January to 26 January. Police officers and Water Police Squad members will be at local beaches to enforce water safety and try to reduce the number of marine incidents and collisions caused by unsafe behaviour. Rosebud Police Assistant Sergeant Flyn Loughlin said “we generally see a surge in the holiday population on the Mornington Peninsula over this long weekend and more people utilise the foreshore precincts and the nearby water. It’s a great atmosphere over the summer period, and I encourage everyone to have fun. But it’s been well publicised recently that there have been a spate of water related incidents ranging from drownings, injuries due to misadventure, and jetski collisions.” “We simply won’t tolerate people who fail to

FRANKSTON’S Ventana Fiesta will return this year. From 9 February to 24 March, a packed calendar of events will take place to celebrate Latin-American, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish cultures. High-flyers will take to the sky in a showcase of Lucha libre professional wrestling. Music, dancing, food, and art will all feature over the course of the event. Frankston councillor Suzette Tayler said that “Ventana 2021 Reimagined” will be an “amazing celebration with something for the whole family.” “There’s so much to do, enjoy and explore – from the online drinks activity where participants can learn to make margarita with Mexican-style icy poles, sangria and mojitos, as well as cooking where you can learn to make delicious Spanish paella and mouth-watering tacos,” Cr Tayler said. “There’s great activities for the kids including craft where the younger members of our community can make face and head art and design their own fantasy mascot. You can also learn how to wear a contemporary poncho and watch Guatemalan weavers at work. “In addition to our usual amazing program, this year’s Fiesta is also heading online for the first time bringing the best of Latin into your living room.

Ventana Fiesta kicks off next month


100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Quarries opened by Chairman of Country Roads Board under the supervision of Mrs H. McComb, assisted by other lady helpers, and as the weather was extremely hot, the council’s thoughtfulness in this connection was much appreciated. The Shire President (Cr Mason), in welcoming the visitors, said they were taking part in a function of considerable importance. From a monetary and utility standpoint, it was one of the biggest enterprises undertaken by any shire. When first mooted it seemed too large, as several thousands of pounds had to be provided, and the money market presented difficulties. Ultimately all obstacles had been overcome, and the plant was now in running order at a present cost of £12,000. The Council had been fortunate in securing as manager, Mr Frank Jolly, in whom they had implicit faith, and he was carrying the full responsibility of the works. In launching the new venture, the council had been subjected to much criticism. This was not resented as long as it was fair and reasonable. Some critics said they had paid too much for the land—400 acres had been purchased at £6 per acre. The area was covered with timber, still growing, and the value of the wood as fuel was £6 per acre. He was satisfied the council had secured a very fine asset. The machinery was capable of turning out 400 yards of metal per day and no difficulty would be experienced in disposing of the stone. A contract had just been entered into to supply the Railway Department

Compiled by Cameron McCullough THE opening of the stone quarries at Moorooduc on Friday, January 7 proved a notable event, destined to prove memorable in the history of the district’s development. Men competent to express an opinion on the subject give the unqualified verdict that the Council of the Shire of Frankston and Hastings has done the right thing in establishing an industry so vital to the needs of the municipality. The great need of the day is for roads and yet more roads. The council, assisted by the Country Roads Board, has not been unwilling to supply all reasonable demands for improved thoroughfares, but in many instances construction has been retarded, owing to the inability to obtain adequate supplies of road making material. In establishing quarries and crushing plant of its own in the heart of the shire, the council has become independent of outside supplies, and although the initial cost had been heavy, the ultimate gain will be proportionately large. The official opening attracted a large number of visitors to the works, where the Shire President (Cr W. P. Mason) directed the proceedings. Mr Calder, the Chairman of the Country Roads Board, was in attendance, and representatives of many neighboring municipalities were also present. The extensive nature of the works caused considerable surprise to many and great interest was taken in the working of the massive machinery and the adjoining quarries. Light refreshments were provided

with 12,000 yards of metal at a very favorable price. He wished to make it clear that the council would never have been able to establish the plant had it not been for the forward policy of the Government in establishing the Country Roads Board. (Applause) They were pleased to have Mr Calder (chairman of the Roads Board) present at the opening of their quarries. (Hear, hear) The Board had done such excellent work that the system was now being copied by the Government of New South Wales. It was at last recognised that good roads were essential to the proper development of the country. Good roads made good neighbors and good towns, and kept the railways going. The Mornington Peninsula would have remained in a somewhat primitive state had not the Country Roads Board stepped in and provided adequate highways for the producers, and he hoped before long to see the Board take over Humphries Road and the 3-chain road linking Tyabb and the main Hastings Road. If these were treated as developmental roads, the council would have little to complain about. Mr Calder, who met with an enthusiastic reception, said he was acting on behalf of Mrs Mason, the wife of the shire president, in setting the machinery in motion. He felt flattered at being asked to take part in such an important ceremony. He congratulated the shire council on the progressive step it had taken. People were inclined to whine a little

when large expenditures were mooted and deplore the high cost of labor, etc. It was necessary, however, to look forward hopefully, for times were not always to be as they were now. The effect of the backwash of the war was being felt all over the world. The country or State that made provision for the future would reap the full benefit when the change for the better came. It was necessary to have good highways, and he was glad to notice the progress being made in that direction by the shires of the Peninsula. He had strong faith in the future of the Peninsula. (Cheers) It was admirably adapted for Closer Settlement with its splendid soil, which was easy of cultivation. The Frankston and Hastings shire council had taken a broad and favorable outlook, and the ratepayers would have no cause to blame them for lack of enterprise. Mr Calder said he had inspected this quarry site 8 years ago, and was surprised that it had not been developed before. As soon as the council expressed its desire to establish a quarry, the C.R.B. gave the movement every encouragement. It was a costly undertaking, but he believed it would be remunerative. The C.R.B. would use as much of the stone as possible, and the adjoining shires of Mornington and Flinders would find it convenient to do the same. Neighbouring councils were under a debt of gratitude to the Shire of Frankston for making available supplies of metal at their very doors. While the stone was not quite first

class, it was superior to the best basalt from Melbourne, and was well suited to the requirements of the district. The C.R.B. would do its best to keep the plant going. (Cheers.) *** AT the Frankston Police Court on Monday last — before Cr W. P. Mason and Mr C. W. Grant, J’s.P — a female offender, who admitted prior convictions, was fined £1, in default three days, for being drunk and disorderly at Frankston on Saturday last. A defendant, charged with non-compliance with the Vaccination Act, was fined 10s. *** WESTERNPORT Bay owes its discovery to Sir George Bass, the surgeon, who came to Australia in 1795. Its discovery was the outcome of a remarkable feat on Bass’s part, for the voyage from Sydney to Westernport was made in a miniature type of whaling craft. Bass was a fearless, wandering spirit, but his fate was ultimately a sad one, for whilst visiting Valparaiso, he was seized and sent into the slavery of the Brazil quicksilver mines. *** SPORTS in the Bittern and Balnarring district are thinking about holding a race meeting at the Emu Plains Racecourse shortly. Nothing definite yet, but it’s coming. *** SOME of the latest land buyers in the Frankston district include residents of Barnwartha, Kiewa, Benalla, Rushworth, and Strathmerton. *** FROM the pages of the Frankston and Somerville Standard, 21 January 1921

Somerville net the Sharks, Dromana prevail, Seaford let it slip, Sorrento slide in for a win By Brodie Cowburn

PENINSULA

A GREAT performance by Somerville’s batsmen got them a win over Flinders on Saturday. Somerville looked comfortable out in the middle, and set a huge total. Opener Brenton Alp and number four Bradley McDonald top scored with scores of 83 and 85 not out respectively. Flinders worked hard to get within reach of a target of 282, but fell short. A middle order collapse proved costly, and they ended up all out for 229. Flinders opener Kane Hawkins can hold his head high after scoring a half century. Long Island’s bowlers were in fine form on Saturday, helping their side defend a total of 172 against Seaford Tigers. The Tigers stumbled out of the gates, and at 9/49 were no chance to win. Their tail end batsmen were gutsy, and dug their heels in to help get their side to 125 before being bowled out. The Tigers were defeated by 47 runs. Daniel Kelly was the pick of the bowler, taking four wickets. At Ditterich Reserve, Heatherhill notched up a win over Main Ridge. Main Ridge set a target of 148, which proved to be too small. Heatherhill hit the winning runs with four wickets and four overs to spare. Pines had little trouble dealing with Moorooduc. They won by seven wickets on their home deck.

DISTRICT

A HALF-CENTURY from opener Dewayne Bowden set Dromana up for a victory on Saturday. Pearcedale hit the road to take on Dromana. The travelling outfit chose to bat first and put 174 runs on the scoreboard before being bowled out. Dromana’s run chase started well, and at 1/96 they were in pole position for the win. Despite losing a few late wickets, Dromana were eventually able to claim the points. They hit the winning runs with three wickets left. First drop batsman Matthew Whelan’s knock of 79 was the highlight of the day as his Delacombe

Park side took on Carrum. Delacombe Park set 157 runs for Carrum to chase down. Carrum struggled badly, and their run chase came to an end when they were bowled out for 96. Whelan also starred with the ball, posting figures of 3/5 off eight overs. Hastings bowled impressively to defend a total of 156 against Frankston YCW. The Stonecats were toothless, and were bowled out just 88.

SUB DISTRICT

SEAFORD let a good chance at victory go to waste on Saturday. They failed in their run chase against Mt Martha. On their home deck at Ferrero Reserve, Mt Martha struggled with the bat. They got off to a rough start when they lost their first three wickets for

Tootgarook defended a total of 202 against Skye. Travis French top scored for the winning side with a knock of 87. Skye opener Ishtiaq Ahmed scored 80 runs to give his side a chance, but they still lost by 42 runs. Around the grounds Tyabb defeated Ballam Park by 90 runs at Bunguyan Reserve, and Carrum Downs defeated Boneo by 25 runs at Boneo Rec Reserve.

just 11 runs. When Mt Martha’s innings came to a close they were at 9/111. Seaford’s run chase was shaky. At 5/43, a win was far from assured. They got things back on track and were in the driver’s seat at 7/100, but then disaster struck for Seaford. The side lost their last three wickets for nine runs and ended up all out for 109. Mt Martha emerged victorious by just two runs. Balnarring claimed a win over Rye in another low scoring clash on Saturday. Rye chose to bat first but did no damage on the scoreboard. They were bowled out for 78, with just two batsmen making double-digit scores. Balnarring were hardly convincing, but managed to get the job done. They won by just two wickets.

runs to put his side in a good position. At 7/143, Sorrento were moments away from claiming the win. They lost two quick wickets in a late scare, but eventually scored the winning runs with one wicket in hand. Mt Eliza fell just short in their run chase against Peninsula OB. The Old Boys took to the crease to bat first, and put 138 runs on the scoreboard. Mt Eliza took the game down to the final over, but couldn’t drag themselves over the line. Stumps was called with Mt Eliza four runs short of a result. Langwarrin bowled out Mornington for 114 to claim a 66 run win at Lloyd Park. Baden Powell also secured a comfortable win last weekend, defeating Red Hill by 94 runs..

Greening returns to Somerville SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie THE topsy-turvy relationship between Dave Greening and Somerville Eagles took another twist last week when the club appointed him senior player-coach for 2021. The peninsula goals king with nine league Golden Boot awards to his name was re-appointed last week for his third stint as player-coach. He resigned from the role last June but recent changes at the club played an important role in his return. Close friend Stan Packer stepped down as senior coach earlier this month and took over as director of coaching and he supported Greening’s return as did club president Luke Mulder. “I’m thankful to Luke and Stan and the rest of the committee for their efforts in getting me back to the club,” Greening said. “After what was a really tough year for me personally in 2020 it feels fantastic to be back as those that know me well know that this this club is very close to my heart. “I had some interest from other clubs but I didn’t have the drive and passion to succeed that I have here. “This is the sort of family club where I can bring my wife Emma and son Alfie to and it’s a place where I can see out my playing days while continuing to learn from a fantastic mentor in Stan whom I have the highest regard for. “Over the past eight seasons I’ve also played under and worked alongside successful coaches like Scott Morrison and Kevin Taylor and I’ve taken a huge amount of positives from them. “That has served as a good apprenticeship for me. “This will be our first ever season at this level (State 4) which is super exciting and something to embrace. “It’ll be great to pit our wits against some of the big hitters in this league, many of whom have deep pockets along with the challenge of coming up against some very well-respected coaches.” In State 1 news Mornington coach Adam Jamieson confirmed late last week that the club had re-retained defender Lachlan Hogben for the upcoming season. Hogben joined Mornington from Eltham Redbacks last year. Jamieson now oversees a 21-strong senior squad which includes a number of teenagers. Here is the current squad with the previous club of new signings in brackets: GOALKEEPERS: Taylor Davidson, Nathan Lynders. DEFENDERS: Joshua Heaton, Steve Elliott, Lachlan Hogben, Andy McIntyre, Andrew Goff, Charlie Gunning. MIDFIELDERS: Craig Smart, Sam Scott, Luke Goulding (Langwarrin), Dejan Radojicic, Kyron Kerr, Ethan Goulding, Thanasi Matziaris (Langwarrin). FORWARDS: Josh Hine, Milos Lujic (Port Melbourne), Wayne Gordon, Matt Harrington, Campbell Steedman (Bulleen), Zach Hutchison. In State 2 news Peninsula Strikers and Skye United continued their pre-season programs with friendly matches last weekend. Strikers defeated State 5 outfit Aspendale Stingrays 4-0 at Centenary Park while Skye lost 2-1 to State 3 side South Yarra at Comets Stadium. Strikers’ New Zealand forward Riley Anderton continued to impress with a second-half double after Tom Hawkins had put the home side ahead in the first half when he beat the offside trap on the right and hammered the ball home from close range. Aspendale’s failure to quickly close down Aaran Currie in the second period allowed the Scot to pick his spot from just outside the area and his strike eluded the diving attempt of young Stingrays’ keeper Matt Self. The pick of Anderton’s goals was his second, a firmly struck finish from inside the area following a cutback from the right. Strikers featured newcomers in former Langwarrin and Hampton Park United attacking midfielder Ahmad “Sosa” Suleiman and ex-Langy and Mornington defender Tim Millar. Former South Australian striker Chris Mara (ex-Northern Demons and Modbury Jets) played wide on the right for Strikers as Jai Power was rested but injury forced Mara to go off in the first half.

Teenage central defender Noah Berends, Self and Kenan Nuhanovic were the visitors’ best and coach Lee Barber must have been pleased that his side was able to create chances against a higher-ranked opponent. Nuhanovic could have levelled from inside the area early in the second half but his shot struck the post. Last Thursday night Aspendale lost 4-2 to State 4 opponent Noble Park United at the Serbian Sports Centre in Keysborough. Ben Garside and Matt Bruce scored for Aspendale. The best for the Stingrays were Sam Timuska Carr, Garside and Bruce. Meanwhile Skye went into the clash with South Yarra with eight senior squad players unavailable so head coach Phil McGuinness was forced to use some newcomers and some young players to get through three 30-minute periods of play. The newcomers were right-sided defender/ wingback Naveed Ali (from Olimpia FC Warriors, Tasmania), striker Rod Saavedra (Berwick, Churches League), striker Duol Jang (Sandown Lions) and midfielder Denis Mujcinovic (Langwarrin). A thumping Marcus Collier drive from outside the area late in the first period put Skye 1-0 up but South Yarra took advantage of the many changes McGuinness made for the second stanza and goals from Ronan Kelly and Leo Holmes gave it a 2-1 lead. McGuinness made further substitutions and changed his side’s formation for the final 30-minute period but South Yarra ran out a deserving winner. “The game was probably better than any training session I could hold and you can’t beat match practice and fitness,” McGuinness said. “We have a long way to go to get back to the fitness we are accustomed to but it was our first hit-out and we also got the chance to give the new boys a run. “Huge thanks to South Yarra for making it a tough one and best of luck to them for the rest of the year.” A feature of the match was the return of Skye striker Travis Ernsdoerfer who had been out of the game for two years due to illness and last season’s shutdown. In other news the inaugural Mount Eliza Soccer Sevens tournament was concluded a fortnight ago. It involved 432 games played over six weeks with around 700 players and 72 teams from the peninsula and surrounding suburbs. Age groups from under-7s to under-15s participated in the tournament held at Mount Eliza Secondary College. Mount Eliza soccer club is embarking on an expansion program which will be boosted shortly with the installation of new lights at Emil Madsen Reserve as the club targets State League membership in 2022. This week’s friendlies: THURSDAY: Frankston Pines v Peninsula Strikers (Monterey Reserve, 7.30pm, reserves Centenary Park, 6.30pm). SATURDAY: Peninsula Strikers v Chelsea (Centenary Park, 1pm & 3pm), Frankston Pines v Skye Utd (Monterey Reserve, 5pm & 7pm), Baxter v Mooroolbark (Baxter Park, 3pm), Aspendale Stingrays v Tullamarine (Kingston Heath Soccer Complex, 7.30pm). SUNDAY: Langwarrin v Eastern Lions (Lawton Park, 2pm, U19s 12 noon, U21s 4pm), Seaford Utd v Hampton Park Utd (North Seaford Reserve, 11am & 1pm), Mount Eliza v Mount Martha (Mount Eliza Secondary College, 12 noon).
