New face of Anzac legend Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au KINGSTON residents young and old turned out in their thousands for Anzac Day dawn services across the city last Friday. Longbeach RSL president Michael Weissenfeld said the turnout was “huge� and more than 100 wreathes were laid at the Chelsea cenotaph to show respect to those who have served the nation in its armed forces. “It was a very impressive show of support and I’ve never seen so many people out for the parade,� Mr Weissenfeld said. This year’s Longbeach RSL Anzac Day march was led by former 5th Battalion private Thomas Deveson. The 24-year-old Chelsea resident returned from a tour of duty in Afghanistan in July 2011 and was invited by the RSL to be the main flag bearer. Mr Weissenfeld said it was good to have Afghanistan veterans such as Mr Deveson involved in the day. Mr Deveson’s ex-comrade, Thomas Williams from Albury, joined him at the head of the parade. “It was an honour and it was great to march with Tommy who I served with in Afghanistan,� said Mr Deveson, who is a Longbeach RSL member. The pair were stationed in Oruzgan Province in Afghanistan. “We mentored the Afghan army there to take over from Australian troops after we left,� Mr Deveson said. “Serving over there was an eye opener for all of us but I found a previous deployment to East Timor helped me adjust to being so far away from home.� Mr Deveson said he had been “overwhelmed by the great show of support� by Kingston residents on Anzac Day. He left the army in early 2012 and is now employed on the railways as a track worker, a job he said he enjoys. He has found it “fairly easy� to reintegrate back into civilian life but he knows “some of my mates have struggled�. “I’ve got a great support group of family and friends,� Mr Deveson said.

Ethel joins the 100 club IT was a family affair for Ethel Hulls when the Chelsea resident marked her 100th birthday last week. The centenarian’s extended family including 7 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren gathered at Nieman Hall to celebrate the occasion. Daughter Shirley Johnson said friends also attended to wish her mother well and thank her for her friendship over the decades. Ms Hulls emigrated from England to Australia in 1965 and met her late husband, Neville Hulls, in 1945 when she was in the Women’s Air Force at the end of World War II. Mr Hulls was in the British army and the pair met in Wales at a dance for armed forces.

They were married three months after they began dating and had four children together. Ms Johnson said her mother and father, married for 60 years, maintained their love of dance throughout their time together and were regulars at their local RSL events. Ms Hulls was a kindergarten teacher in Chelsea Heights for many years. Ms Johnson said her mother had enjoyed her milestone birthday and received cards from all over the world. “She had always wondered whether she’d get a telegram from the Queen when she turned 100,” Mrs Johnson said. “So it was great when it arrived.”

Chelsea Mordialloc Mentone News 30 April 2014


Crawf hawks Mordi as the wheel deal PREMIERSHIP Hawthorn star Shane Crawford dropped in to Mordialloc last week and Kingston is what he’ll be talking about next month. The former AFL footballer and The Footy Show larrikin was in town to film an episode of Channel 9’s Postcards tourism TV show. Kingston will be one of four areas featured on Postcards in May, according to show producer Ellen Mathews. “Shane had a great time in Kingston and visited several local landmarks including Pompei’s Landing,” she said. “He also popped into some eateries such as the Windsor Hotel and Doyles Bridge Hotel.” Main Street Cafe took to Facebook to comment: “Was great to have Shane Crawford and the crew from Postcards drop in on Thursday. I can tell you we were a bit nervous in the kitchen at first, but our professionalism kicked in and we served Shane up with three great dishes.” “(He) attracted a bit of a crowd as well, and Shane seemed a very humble guy who was very happy to have his photo taken with some of our loyal customers.” The episode of Postcards featuring Shane Crawford’s visit to Mordialloc will be aired on Channel 9 at 5.30pm on Sunday 18 May.

Volunteers are friends in deed MORE than 600 Kingston residents regularly volunteer their time and effort to helping others. SES emergency service, working in community gardens, delivering meals to the elderly and volunteer transport schemes are just some of the tasks people put their hand up for. Kingston City Council will host an Introduction to Volunteering event as part of Volunteer Week in May. Mayor Paul Peulich said volunteering gave people a real sense of purpose and pride. “The work volunteers undertake in the community is invaluable and we are indebted to them for their contribution in making our city all the richer,” he said. The Introduction to Volunteering event will be held at 1-3pm on Wednesday 14 May at Mordialloc Neighbourhood House. The event is free but bookings are required. Visit www.kingston.vic.gov.au/GetInvolved for full details.

Jobs for builders

KINGSTON City Council will host a Meet The Builder event at Clayton South Primary School Hall on Wednesday 7 May from 4-6pm. Ausbuild Constructions is keen to meet with prospective suppliers and contractors to discuss work contract opportunities for Kingston businesses and handymen during construction of the $1.6 million Clayton South kindergarten.

‘Secret’ panels slammed Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au A REVIEW of the way Kingston City Council seeks feedback from residents has been branded “secretive” by a former councillor. Trevor Shewan said he was concerned major changes to the village committees community consultation process are being considered “behind closed doors” by current councillors. Mr Shewan has raised his fears about the review directly to councillors in his current role as a member of the Patterson Lakes Carrum village committee. Councillors met “in camera” last month and Mr Shewan said “there had

been a lack of consultation with village committees” about any possible changes. He wondered whether councillors had made a decision but were now just debating how to implement changes. “Newly appointed village committee members have only been given a 12-month term which has never happened before,” Mr Shewan said. Nine Kingston village committees consisting of appointed residents provide feedback to council on issues affecting the municipality. Members are usually appointed for a minimum of two years. The committees advise council and provide comment on council strategies, plans and

its annual budget. Each committee presents feedback from its monthly meeting to councillors at Kingston City Council’s monthly council meeting. Mr Shewan said the last review of the village committees system, conducted in 2002, sought and used input from village committee members but it seemed councillors would solely make any decisions regarding the community feedback platform this time around. Mr Shewan lost his South Ward seat at the 2010 council election. A survey asking how the feedback process could be “improved” was sent out to village committees late last year and Mr Shewan said it was “ominous” that nothing had been heard from

council since then. “Many village committees are concerned their views will not be considered and many current councillors seem to be anti-village committees,” he said. Cr Rosemary West said village committees are a vital “sounding board” for councillors to seek feedback from the Kingston community. “Too much of what this council does is done behind closed doors,” Cr West said. Council advised Mr Shewan at this month’s council meeting that the Patterson Lakes Carrum village committee’s comments had been noted and further information would be provided as soon as possible.

Place to celebrate community spirit LONGBEACH Place is inviting volunteers to celebrate another year of volunteerism in Kingston. The celebration will be the fifth year the community centre has opened its doors to recognise those who selflessly devote time to helping others. Patterson River Secondary College students will prepare the food and the Chelsea Yacht Club will serve at the bar. Entry is free but wine and beer is $2 per glass. Volunteer groups are encouraged to participate in this year’s Limerick Duel to present to the crowd. Call Kathy at ChelCSS on 9772 8939 or email kathy@chelsea.org.au to book attendance. The event will be held on Wednesday 14 May at 6pm at Chelsea Activity Hub, Showers Ave, Chelsea.

Film buff takes shining to horror Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au BUDDING Parkdale movie director Matthew Goodrich has long been a fan of on-sccreen psychopaths. The 26-year-old aficionado of horror has now taken the first creeping steps towards his long-term goal of helming his own full-length film. Goodrich is the writer, director, producer and editor of a 15-minute horror thriller called Scission, with the short to have its premiere next week at St Kilda’s Astor Theatre. He said the film had taken about three years to complete from concept to finished flick and not all of the blood involved had ended up on screen. “I’ve poured my blood, sweat and tears into the film,” he said. “It’s been a long process.” When not filming horror scenes at night, Goodrich has a day-time job as a teacher at Kilbreda College in Mentone. He said he had saved as much as he could to put together the $60,000 short as a calling card. “It’s a way to hopefully put myself on the map,” he said. “I’m aiming to direct a full-length feature film and an independent Australian production company is very interested in the concept.” Goodrich cited late director Stanley Kubrick as an inspiration for his directing style and said he preferred “psychological horror” to “blood and guts stuff”. He said films such as The Blair Witch Project and The Exorcist were movies he admired for their ability

to build suspense by “playing on the imagination” to deliver shocks. Closer to home, he noted Wolf Creek showed the horror genre was commercially viable in Australia. Scission is the tale of Kev, a father of two who slowly breaking down after his wife mysteriously disappears. His daughters and sister in law become increasingly worried as he battles feelings of abandonment and betrayal, and is haunted by outlandish fantasies of a beast that stalks his home and its surrounding woods. “I’d describe Scission as a cross between The Shining and Rosemary’s

Baby,” Goodrich said. The film’s cast features several Australian actors including Steve Hayden (Wildside, Water Rats and Home & Away), Rachel Soderstrom (House Husbands, Small Time Gangster and the telemovie Hawke) and Jessica Gower (Sam in The Secret Life of Us). Goodrich said he had made a few industry connections while studying for a Bachelor in Film and Television at Swinburne University. His previous short film The Judges, “a satirical piss-take about short film festival judges” just missed out on the

top 15 Tropfest films and made the final cut of 15 in the international short film comedy festival Over the Fence. He said co-producer Steve Hayden, Julian V Costanzo and many others had helped make Scission, his most ambitious project to date, a reality. Scission will have its premiere screening with four other short films at The Astor Theatre at 8.15pm-9.40pm on Tuesday 6 May. Comedian Lawrence Mooney will host the screening. Tickets to see all four films are $20. Visit www.scissionfilm.com for further details.

Drunk driver falls flat on Anzac spirit POLICE arrested and charged a man after he drove to a Dingley bottle shop on Anzac Day while four-times over the legal alcohol limit in car with a blown-out tire. An employee at the Boundary Rd bottle shop contacted police after the 39-year-old man pulled up to buy more alcohol in old Toyota Camry with a flat tyre about 3.30pm. The Parkdale man was still at the bottle shop when Moorabbin highway patrol officers arrived a short time later. He was breath tested and returned a reading of .219 per cent. The man was charged with highrange drink driving and his licence was immediately suspended. Police have asked anyone who saw a blue 1994 Toyota Camry driving in the area around the time of the incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. Meanwhile, police said they have been left “shaking their heads” at the number of drivers detected flouting the law over the Easter and Anzac Day holidays. A “staggering” 22,331 traffic offences were detected on Victorian roads over the 13-day holiday period, including 8307 motorists caught speeding, 865 found to be unlicensed and a further 456 who were driving while disqualified or suspended. More than 300,000 drivers were breathalysed over the period, with 640 found to be over the limit and a further 180 testing positive to drugs. Chris Brennan

Chelsea Mordialloc Mentone News 30 April 2014


Explosions, fire gut Bolwell plant Chris Brennan chris@baysidenews.com.au A MASSIVE fire that destroyed three factories at a Mordialloc manufacturing plant last week erupted when a build-up of fibreglass dust was ignited by a spark from an exhaust fan, fire investigators have revealed. Thirty workers were evacuated as more than 80 firefighters from the Metropolitan Fire Brigade and Country Fire Authority arrived to battle the blaze at the Bolwell fibreglass and composites plant in Wells Rd early Thursday morning. Peak hour traffic was thrown into chaos as police closed surrounding roads after the fire erupted with a series of explosions about 6.15. Thick black toxic smoke fuelled by large volumes of fibreglass products blanketed surrounding areas, sparking an emergency warning for residents and workers as far away as Braeside, Aspendale, Aspendale Gardens, Waterways and Edithvale to seek shelter indoors and block windows and doors. Workers at the plant heard a number of large explosions believed to have been caused when drums containing highly flammable fibreglass resin were ignited shortly after the fire broke out. The fiercely burning fire spread quickly from the first factory floor into the roof of the plant before engulfing two adjoining factories. Three aerial appliances, 20 fire trucks, 82 firefighters and specialist hazardous material appliances took about 90 minutes to bring the fire under control. The blaze gutted three of four factories at the plant, leaving a multi-million dollar damage bill. MFB officials said the fire was fuelled by large amounts of fibreglass and resin and had been sparked by an electrical fault. “The fire was caused by a build-up of dust from the fibreglass manufacturing and a spark from the exhaust fan, which ignited the explosion,” MFB investigators reported on Tuesday.

Worksafe officials are awaiting the completion of the MFB investigation to determine if further action is warranted. An MFB spokesperson said “thick, black acrid smoke filled the air and a community warning was issued for nearby residents to close their windows and doors and shelter in place”. “The fire was threatening adjoining properties as both MFB and CFA crews worked quickly to stop its spread as additional appliances were despatched,” the spokesperson said. Police urged motorists to avoid the area as traffic jams built up in surrounding streets during the morning peak. Boundary Rd was closed between White St and Governor Rd, while Wells Rd was closed at Beach Ave and Springvale Rd while fire crews battled the blaze. Police said traffic in the area was “significantly impacted” over the course of the morning.

A Bolwell spokesperson said company officials were “not interested” in talking to the media about the fire or its effects on employees and customers. Bolwell is one of Kingston’s best-known businesses, earning international renown first for its high-performance Nagari fiberglass sports cars before the company diversified into designing, engineering and manufacturing a wide range of moulded products. While the Nagari production line is now located at a separate plant at Seaford and therefore not affected by the fire, the company’s production of composite truck bodies for Kenworth, Paccar and Iveco, is believed to have been severely affected. Bolwell started production in Melbourne in 1962. The company produced its now highly collectable six-cylinder and V8 Nagari two-seat sports car at the factory from 1970 to 1974 before

government regulations aimed at stopping car makers producing overly powerful vehicles killed off the local industry. The Nagari was resurrected in 2008 with the carbon fibre-bodied V-6 Nagari Mark X, which sells for between $150,000 and $260,000. Bolwell’s capabilities were “adapted from sports cars to other vehicle applications, including heavy transport, marine, defence, architecture, mining, infrastructure and OE automotive”, company literature states, adding that it had supplied more than 30,000 GRP Kenworth truck bodies since 1982. The company launched the Bolwell Edge caravan in 2010, while Bolwell “teams” also work on “next-generation defence projects to deliver lightweight components to heavy-duty military specifications, including external armour and internal fitout”.

What price private ownership?

Double standards

COUNCILLOR Ron Brownlees seems to be saying in the Kingston Your City newsletter that private landholders in the Green Wedge can do what they like with their land (‘Mentone Grammar ready to engage’, The News, 16/4/14) He has different standards for the foreshore, where the Gang of Five have voted to ban the planting of trees – and have backed the proposal by the Beachside Residents in Kingston Association (BRIKA) for Council to prune and clear existing foreshore trees to improve their views. Our foreshore is publicly owned, yet the Gang of Five thinks it should be managed by Council to improve the private views and property values of beachfront residents. Landowners can do as they like in the Green Wedge and beachfront residents can do as they like with the foreshore, even though it is publicly owned, according to Cr Brownlees. The only thing consistent about Cr Brownlees and the ‘Gang of Five’ is their support for vested interests everywhere.

Smoke on the water: CFA firefighters from Frankston and Patterson River battled a fire aboard a luxury cruiser moored at Patterson Lakes Marina last Tuesday. Picture: Gary Sissons

More bad news for boatie POLICE are probing the cause of a fire that destroyed a luxury leisure cruiser moored at Paterson Lakes last week.

CR Ron Brownlees’s excuse for voting to allow landowners to carve up Kingston’s Green Wedge for subdivision gives an insight into his pro-development bias on urban issues (‘Mentone Grammar ready to engage’, The News, 16/4/14). Cr Brownlees said “approximately 80 per cent of what we refer to as ‘our’ Green Wedge actually belongs to …landholders and residents.” As “council and other levels of government will never be in a position to obtain all the private land for public use,” he argued “some form of negotiation and compromise is necessary.” So landowners can do as they like with their land? This may explain why Cr Brownlees and four other councillors vote to approve almost all planning applications that come to council, from two-storey dwellings in backyards to 6-7 storeys in the Mentone Activity Centre as well as waste-related activities and subdivision in the Green Wedge, even though they breach council policies. Buying up the 80 per cent of privately owned land including market gardens, nurseries and golf courses is the last thing we need in the Green Wedge, although we do need the state government to purchase reclaimed tip-sites to create the chain of parks and phase out the landfills and other waste-processing that has blighted our Green Wedge for decades. Wherever we live or own land, our use of it is – or should be - governed by the planning scheme which keeps our city liveable by balancing economic development with protection for our residential streetscapes, shop-

ping centres, environment, agriculture and heritage. Even though the land is mostly privately owned. Rosemary West, Central Ward councillor

ANZAC DAY 2014

Chelsea Dawn Service

Pictures by Gary Sissons

The following is a speech given by St Louis de Montfort’s grade 6 student Keely Ortland on Anzac Day in Aspendale. I AM honoured to be able to speak about Anzac day. Anzac Day stands for Australian New Zealand Army Corps. It is celebrated every year on the 25th of April. It is not just another day off school, nor is about a footy game even if the mighty Pies are playing. Anzac day is a day of reflection, a day to remember those who were so brave, a day of being a proud Australian and a day to pay our respect and not forget the generations before us. For me and those my age, it is difficult to understand why we went to war and even more difficult to understand how many lives were taken. I have never had grandpas or great grandpas in my life to share stories with me about the experience of war and what it was like to be needed by your country. But what I do have is the passing on of history, tradition and knowledge from my teachers and family. This is what Anzac Day means to me... A is for anniversary. A day to remember when more than 20,000 Australian and New Zealanders arrived in Gallipoli in 1915. A is for ANZAC cove, named now as the beach where our soldiers arrived. It was here that within hours of arriving, many were shot by machine gun fire. N is for National pride. I think about how brave these men and women were. They inspire me because they fought for all Australians. They were loyal and determined. We are very proud of them and need to say thankyou. N is also for nightmare. Families having to say goodbye to their husbands, brothers or fathers and having to deal with them not returning or not being the same if they did. I read about a boy who was only 14 years and 9 months old. He lied about his age to attend the war in Gallipoli. He unfortunately passed away during a major shooting. He could have been my brother and I just cannot imagine having to say goodbye to a loved family member who I may never see them again. My godfather walked the Kokoda track. From him he thought the experience was emotional. It was very hard for him because he too was always thinking about the nightmare that was experienced by the men and the conditions they were fighting in. One thing he took away from the Kokoda track experience was their bravery and respect for what they did. Z is for Zimmerman. One of the 61,720 Australians who died in the First World War. We honour this person and all others on our honour roll for this war and all other wars in which we have had Australian men and women serve. A is for Army and air force. These service men and women together with our Navy fought for our country and showed actions such as bravery, loyalty and determination. We acknowledge and praise them. C. This was an easy one. Courage and commitment is what I see in those who have gone to war. Fighting for the cause of freedom and for a country they were proud of. They showed compassion and demonstrated camaraderie. They looked out for each other and many times died for one another. C is also for carrying on the spirit from past generations to my generation and the generations to come. We must remember all current and former members of our Defence force. I mentioned to you I was 11. It does not really matter how I learnt about Anzac Day. Whether it was on the TV, googling on my iPad, hearing from my teachers or even being able to attend last year’s Anzac Day footy match when the silence was amazing during the Last Post. What really matters is I can now carry on the spirit and meaning of today...I will not forget. Lest we forget.

FEATURE PROPERTY

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

First class country WITH a list of attributes perhaps more suited to inner-city townhouses, this stylish rural property is literally a breath of fresh country air with a modern and sophisticated finish. Set on about 3.4 hectares (8.5 acres) of relatively flat pasture land and light bush, the home has a knockout floor plan highlighted by spectacular dimensions that accentuate the sense of space, and an emphasis on indoor and outdoor entertaining. A formal sitting room featuring a cosy gas fireplace is a tranquil space for quiet contemplation away from the upstairs rumpus room which will be great for childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activities and console games. Flanked by glass allowing the natural light to spill throughout, is a family zone incorporating a living and dining space which effortlessly flows through a series of sliding doors out to a generous deck and undercover dining area. A stylish kitchen has granite benchtops with an island bench, quality appliances and a walk-in pantry. A ground-floor bedroom and bathroom - also with granite benchtops - complements four more bedrooms found on the top floor. The impressive master bedroom has a walk-in robe, ensuite with spa bath and opens to a private balcony with a view over the property. Improvements to the property consist of a fully serviced, 195 square metre machinery shed. This stunning location, tucked amongst the gum trees, is tailor-made to create your own unique lifestyle. There is ample room to add a pool or tennis court (STCA) and the land will suit some small-scale agriculture, such as an orchard, or you could run some horses.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Butcher’s horse causes commotion, cadets to set sail for Great Britain Compiled by Matt Vowell From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 2 May 1914 AN exciting bolt occurred here on Tuesday, when the horse attached to the butcher’s cart of Mr J. Sage took fright while the owner was delivering meat at Mrs White’s. The animal tore down the main street, and across the railway line. When captured, it was found that practically no damage had been done. *** MR R. K. Ritchie, son of Cr T. Ritchie, of Frankston, was one of a party of 29 Australian cadets who left by the R.M.S. Orontes on Wednesday for a tour of Great Britain and the Continent, with a view to studying commercial and military matters. The contingent is under the command of Captain Rushall, and comprises 22 cadets from Victoria, 3 from New South Wales, 2 from South Australia, and 1 each from Queensland and Western Australia. Prior to departure to the cadets were presented by the Lord Mayor (Cr D. V. Hennessy) with Pt naval and military ensigns. He hoped they would conduct themselves like the cadets engaged in the previous tours, as young gentlemen. By having self-respect they would respect the Commonwealth. When they came back, they would find there were worse places than Australia to live in. Many friends of the young traveller assembled at the pier, and gave him a most hearty send-off. *** PARTICULARS of a sale of Crown lands, to be held on 6th May, are advertised in this issue. ***

MR R. W. Jones, of Carrum, and Mr E. J. Alexander, of Rosebud, in have been appointed Justices of the Peace for the Central Bailiwick. *** RATEPAYERS are requested to attend a public meeting at the hall, Frankston, on Wednesday evening next, for the purpose of discussing the water scheme for the Peninsula. *** THE liquid assets of the Colonial Bank of Australasia Ltd. referred in our last issue should have been shown as £2,078,787 11s 6d, not £2,070,787 11s 6d. *** THE meeting of the Political Labor Council, to have been held in the Frankston Hall on Monday evening next, has been postponed to Monday evening, 11th May. *** ENTRIES for the Mornington races which takes place on the Drywood estate racecourse, on Tuesday 12th May, close on Monday next 4th inst., with Mr H. Sutton, at V.R.C. offices Melbourne, and the secretary Mr H. Downward, Mornington. *** A MEETING of the proposed Baxter’s Flat Racing Club is called for Tuesday evening next in the Mechanics’ Hall, Frankston. As the business to be considered is important, it is hoped that all interested will attend. *** GREAT satisfaction is expressed in Mornington at the inclusion of a Sunday train to Mornington in the winter time table. A daily motor car service is to run between Frankston and Sorrento, commencing this month.

*** A PLEASANT evening is anticipated at Somerville on Thursday next,

We understand that Mr C. Murray contemplates establishing a poultry farm. We wish him success in his new venture.

when 12 of the lady members of the Fruitgrowers’ Guild give one of their enjoyable entertainment. The one mentioned will take the form of a party, supper, and dance, and, from past experience, we predict that that those who attend will have no reason to regret having invested the modest sum asked for admission. *** THE concert to be given next Saturday day (May 9) in the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall, in aid of the local

fire brigade, promises to be a musical treat. “ We Four,” (Messrs Frederic Earp, Herbert Slattery, Claude Schilling, and Walter Burleigh) who are giving the concert, are gentlemen well per known in the musical world, and they will be assisted by the Misses Jessie and Maud Crombe, Mr F. Plummer (Jute) and Mr W. P. Mason (violin). *** THE many friends of the Rev. Father Donoghue will be very sorry to learn that he has been transferred to Daylesford. The Rev. Father Lee of Daylesford will take Father Donoghue’s place at Mornington. The rev. gentleman only received word on Thursday afternoon and left Mornington Friday morning. The whole of the parishioners deeply regret his departure, for during his short stay of eighteen months amongst us he has it endeared himself to all by his kind and amiable manner. *** THE secretary of the Frankston H. and A. Association has received advice from the Department of Agriculture, under date 24th April, that the Minister of Agriculture has approved of Government poultry medals being awarded to the above Society for their forthcoming show in January next. There are certain stringent conditions entailed with the award, particulars of which will appear in our next issue, so as to give poultry breeders an early chance of competing. *** ON Wednesday evening, the 29th ult., about 200 people assembled in the church hall to wish bon voyage to the Rev. Cyril and Miss Eva, prior

to their departure from the district, and were presented with handsome travelling cases. Mr Eva sails for England on Wednesday next, and Miss Eva for Queensland in about a month’s time. The Rev. Bernard and Mrs Eva, formerly vicar of the pariah, were also present. A fuller report of musical programme next issue. Regret was also expressed on all sides when it became known that we are losing our popular towns people, Mr Les. and Mrs and Miss Owen, whose places will be hard to fill. *** WE understand that Mr C. Murray contemplates establishing a poultry farm. We wish him success in his new venture. *** A PARTY consisting of Messrs B. and T. Gomm, K. Webb, J. Thornell, and others had a successful nights mutton birding at Woolamai on Monday night. Over 200 pairs of birds were captured. *** FRENCH Island cricket club play ed a match against the locals on Saturday last, when an interesting game resulted in a draw.

Three new members were proposed and after the business was concluded, a social was held, at which a varied programme of songs, recitations etc. were rendered. A tasty supper was afterwards handed round, which was greatly enjoyed.

Eighth wonder

THE eighth annual Harvest Festival has something for everyone including non-stop music, fresh food and cooking demonstrations in the Harvest Kitchen with market stalls, delicious local food, boutique wine and beer. ARIA country music chart topping duo McAlister Kemp are headlining the event joined by Todd Cook, Little Wise, Robert James Kirk Band, Marisa Quigley, the Migrations, Slim Dime and the Prairie Kings, The Rebelles, Rory Ellis & The Devil’s Right Hand, The Go Set and Mustered Courage (pictured). Kingston mayor Paul Peulich said the Harvest Festival is an ongoing success story for Kingston. “Harvest is one of the few dedicated country, bluegrass and rockabilly music festivals in Melbourne attracting thousands of locals and visitors alike. We’re proud to play host to such a wonderful line up of new and established performers and I encourage everyone to get down to Roy Dore Reserve for what will be a great day.” This year sees the Green Hub and Jam Café return after a successful Harvest season last year. Other activities on offer during Harvest Festival include social clogging and line dancing, the Patterson Lakes Community Centre gymnastics display, a Scarecrow Orchestra for kids, a circus workshop and Disco Daddy. The Harvest Festival will be held on Saturday 10 May at 11am – 10pm at Roy Dore Reserve, Carrum. Gold coin entry. Dogs, other animals and BYO alcohol are not permitted.


Driven to Easter eggstremes By Stuart McCullough THE Christmas message is one of goodwill to all. Easter, on the other hand, is more about wet camping and chocolate-induced psychosis. In fact, Easter is a lot like daylight savings; each year it stretches out further and further. It is a period of time much like the cosmic elastic in the great interstellar underpants of the Universe that forever threatens to take over the entire twelve months. Before the Yuletide tinsel has been packed back in its cardboard box, buns and eggs start appearing. For many, it’s a time to cherish. For me, it’s a painful reminder that I am wholly and utterly without the slightest skerrick of self-control. Or, at least, I am wholly without self-control compared to my brother. But there’s an upside though. In a Mission Impossible sense, Easter takes some beating. Father Christmas only needed to make it as far as the tree in the living room before dumping the presents and scoffing the milk and biscuits. But the Easter Bunny, cunning creature that he is, succeeds in sneaking into your room and leaving a brightly coloured egg on the dresser. This is especially impressive when you consider that rabbits don’t have fingers. Try opening a door with a clenched fist and you might begin to understand that this is no ordinary bunny. Only the Tooth Fairy has a tougher job and word is that she’s considering a move to direct debit. Most kids want to devour their eggs

instantly. The coloured foil is defoliated and the contents swallowed as near enough to whole as is possible. I was no different to any other child, I guess. However, just as surely as my voracious appetite would ensure that my Easter eggs had a lifespan of less than ten minutes, my brother Cameron would do all he could to resist. Brightly coloured foil would remain undisturbed. Nary a morsel of chocolate would pass his lips. On one level

it was an act of extraordinary self-control. But it wasn’t motivated by a desire to eat well. Rather, he was inspired by something far darker. My brother’s wellspring of malevolence was such that he would hoard his Easter chocolate for one reason and one reason only – power. As the rest of us sat amongst the ruins of our Easter bounty; all torn foil and dark smudges in the corner of our mouths, Cam would pick up his eggs

and hide them somewhere in his room. At various intervals in the following decade, he would produce an egg after dinner and proceed to eat it in front of the rest of us. He would do so slowly, methodically and, generally, with a pair of tweezers that ensured the whole thing moved at a glacial speed. It was agony. The Easter Bunny doesn’t deliver his wares to me anymore. Whether it’s because I’m older or that the poor varmint despaired at how quickly I consumed something that he’d been making for the best of part of a year, I couldn’t say. So instead of having chocolate treats delivered to my dresser, I now have to go out and purchase Easter eggs for other people. This means selecting appropriate confectionary orbs for my ever-expanding family. It’s an exercise fraught with danger. I used to get in early – no sooner was the partridge and accompanying peartree been packed away for another year and I was out buying Easter eggs. This meant there was never a problem in terms of supply. It also meant that I was shopping in the height of summer and there was a substantial risk that the entire bounty might melt and form one huge sugary puddle. But not this year. Instead of buying early and paying full price, I was urged to wait until Easter Sunday to pick eggs up at a discount. Let me say now that this approach defied my every instinct – natural, unnatural and even supernatural. We arrived at a large department store at about eleven o’clock. Foolishly, I thought we’d arrive to find a ghost

town. But it soon became obvious that the early bird not only gets the worm, he also gets a fifty percent discount. We were not the only ones wanting to pick up a little marked down confectionary. It was a madhouse. Hoards of anxious shoppers descended on a small section of metal shelving like piranhas who had just finished the 40-hour Famine, stripping them of anything resembling either an egg or a rabbit. Given the contents of some of the trolleys, it was clear that some people had decided to make this a once in a lifetime event and were stocking up for every Easter between now and doomsday. There were elbows, there was pushing in and there was rudeness on an unimaginable scale. But then my wife pointed out that I was the only one acting in such a brazenly high-handed manner and sent me to the menswear section for “time out”. I deserved as much. Eventually, we emerged with the Easter eggs, if not our dignity, intact. I was still recovering from the entire trauma when we visited my brother that night for dinner. Over some Chinese takeaway, Cam found the whole thing amusing. Then he disappeared for a moment, only to emerge with a bowl full of Easter eggs. From just a glance, I could tell they were vintage. “1979,” he said, pushing them forward. “A very good year.” Any year where eggs appear on your dresser is a good year indeed. www.stuartmccullough.com

Performance THE huge reaction to rumours that Australia’s biggest rock band, AC/DC could be calling it a day due to 61-yearold founding guitarist Malcolm Young being too ill to continue showed how adored the band still is. Interestingly, Mick Wall did mention in his 2012 book Hell Ain’t a Bad Place to Be that Malcolm Young had health problems. During their last world tour between 2008 and 2010, AC/DC played to more than 5 million people and reportedly grossed more than $450 million. Not long after there were stories that Angus and Malcolm Young were buying properties in Australia for a permanent move back here. Lead singer Brian Johnson told London’s The Telegraph the global rock powerhouse intended to still attend sessions at a Vancouver recording studio in May, although he did admit a band member had “a debilitating illness”. Earlier on Wednesday, Choirboys frontman Mark Gable confirmed Malcolm Young’s illness in an ABC radio interview: “From what I understand, and it’s even been confirmed in part by his son Ross Young, that it would appear Malcolm is unable to perform any more.” A close source at Albert Music told me this week there was some talk of George Young, now 67, brother of Angus and Malcolm, taking up the rhythm guitar reigns for the planned AC/DC 40th Anniversary tour. For their fans like me, AC/DC remains one of the purest and most successful bands in rock’n’roll. I have fond memories of spending some great times with the band in their early years; at that time I did not grasp their ultimate impact in one day becoming the rock gods of the world… *** OPERA Australia kicked off its 2014 Melbourne Autumn season with a sensational performance of Eugene Onegin at the State Theatre.

Early bird tickets are now on sale and the festival has announced its initial line up of 40 Australian and international Celtic acts. Kicking off the international line-up are Barrule (Isle of Man), The Druids (Ireland), Heartstring Quartet (UK), Feis Rosi (Scotland), Mairead Hurley

Opera House artistic director Kasper Holten. OA’s performers relished the experience of working with this dynamic young leader - none more than Melbourne soprano Nicole Car whose star is shining bright. This incredible new production is an apt showcase for her rising talents. Following Eugene Onegin comes The Turk in Italy starting on Thursday 1 May and Carmen beginning on Wednesday 14 May. Horses and singers share the stage for a ten-show season of Francesca Zambello’s much-loved production of Carmen. The outdoors of the Arts Centre Melbourne will be transformed into a slice of Spain, with nightly entertainment, and themed dining and drinking. Spain’s very own Carmen, Nancy Fabiola Herrera, alternates with Milijana Nikolic in the title role. For anyone new to opera, this is the

double toil and trouble. *** To describe Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop as “vindictive and churlish” (The Age) is soft criticism. Darling Julie is right up there with Michael Kroger as Australia’s top two “born to rule” aficionados following in the footsteps of Alexander Downer, surely a “Lord” candidate. Superiority reigns, dripping in every look and comment. *** 2006: My feet are itching. I try scratching but they worsen. Bastard. I turn the light on. 3.30am. Try savlon. Bloody heat rash I expect, or this new thong? Two cigarettes. Strange Greek Island. Nobody speaks English? Some “Yassou”s, “kalimera”s. “A better class of Greek” said the guide book; Agios Pahatio, Sifnos. We got off the bus in the main street and nothing? Tavernas all facing the sea, no obvious main entrances. High Noon and Gary Cooper or Bad Day at Black Rock? Booked in tiny rooms, spooky overweight proprietor. Pine furniture on marble floors, doors that SLAM shut. A tiny shower, no hook up high? How difficult to screw in a hook? Careful not to bump anything; an exercise in small space survival. What am I doing here? Grief, loss of sex drive, loss of opportunities, private meditation? Only the brick wall to speak to.

They’re here all right, the better classes. Around the tables, talking, but they don’t see me. The stranger. Maybe this is a movie and I’m watching? They must know I’m here, I ordered coffee, lovely Greek girl, nice thighs. Try not to look; end up in jail. No, this is Greece, not Cairo; you’re allowed to smoke. I was desperate to relate. That’s my way in downtown Rye. Not here, not among the better class of Greeks. I’ll swim after coffee, no sharks, all the way to Mykonos, floating in the salty water. Hard going without a wife. *** MOTORING Enthusiast Party senator-elect Ricky Muir may be a man of substance but as a senator representing motor cars? Ditto mining magnate, sometimes almost charming Clive Palmer. Does money assume intelligence? Apparently. You don’t remember what Ricky looks like? No matter; he will be back come July with other unknowns, just behind Clive Palmer’s backside. God give me strength. *** THE letter writers demand “Judges must reflect community standards”, encouraged as always by dashing Denis Napthine as a sure-fire vote winner.

A Grain of Salt I’M growing old. Obvious in years, but darker proof arises. I falsely prided myself on never being caught on April Fools’ Day. Alas, three times, my confidence shattered, maybe never to recover? I didn’t realise it was 1 April; just another day but a weak excuse. All three were clever, but had I stopped and thought for two minutes? I didn’t, I accepted and must take the embarrassment to my grave. The obvious was Mount Eliza renamed Frankston South West. “Muggins” is my new name. *** I LIVE alone, and far from being a food connoisseur, meals on wheels is out of the question. It follows I’m always busier than those living with a partner, made no easier by ridiculous packaging laws, scissors and a sharp knife being necessities. In Sydney recently at a hotel I fancied a cup of tea and English breakfast. How to open it? One teaspoon? They confiscated my nail scissors at the airport to stop the terrorists? I stabbed the teabag brutally and had my cuppa, disgusted with human simplicity. Then there’s the waiting time required to telephone Centrelink, Telstra, United Energy, the bank et al. Idiots abound. I try not to whinge; I’ve seen too much of it with older people, but changes, like the April Fools debacle shatter my inner confidence. Double,

promises by Labor on the Frankston line rail is even more weird, given that’s where they lost the last election. Free fares on trams, Wi-Fi and an airport link. Immediately the Johnny Mathis song Wonderful Wonderful springs to mind. Denis, the tooth fairy. I say there is no darkness but ignorance. *** AN honest, interesting piece in The Age (Sport 2 April) by The Secret Footballer suggesting AFL standards of behaviour doesn’t so much stop some players culture towards females as does the real fear of exposure on social media, particularly group sex practices. As expected letters of protest arrived the following issue along “unacceptable behaviour” lines. This is one for our band of talented armchair psychologists. *** It wasn’t long ago there was talk of whether or not Lord Tony would keep Treasury secretary Martin Parkinson in the top job. Now Martin comes out with the big sell on a higher GST. No mention of dumping the mining tax and carbon price, both revenue raisers. Then there’s the closure of fringe benefits and super earnings over $100,000. Former Labor ideas. Again no mention. Falling into line for “goodies”, Martin, like our former Governor-General?

Panthers put on notice after dismal defeat NEPEAN LEAGUE

By Toe Punt PEARCEDALE coach Ben Cadd has put his players on notice after their pathetic display against Somerville on Anzac Day. On a day when players should have felt a sense of privilege and pride to play a game of footy to honour the men and women who have and continue to serve our country, the Panthers were lethargic, effortless and weak. Somerville kicked the first seven goals of the game and finished with nine of the first 10 goals of the match. The game was over at half-time when the spirited Eagles led 9.5 (59) to 1.9 (15). The Panthers showed a little more in the second half but still went down by 52 points, 16.14 (110) to 7.16 (58). Cadd said after the dismal preseason that his club had endured, it wasn’t surprising to see them without a win at this stage of the season. Pearcedale had low attendance rates by players during the pre-season, resulting in the loss of a number of players. “When you don’t commit to the season, it’s hard to expect any great results,” Cadd said. “We looked disinterested and refused to play to instruction. Our game plan is pretty simple but we still fail to carry it out. “If players don’t want to play for the Pearcedale Football Club, then I’m happy to sign a clearance form and they can go and play somewhere else. “I was honest with the players after the game and told them if they didn’t want to commit, then don’t bother coming to training on Tuesday night,” Cadd said. After a really poor first quarter, Cadd pleaded with his players to be more committed in the second quarter. “Please, please, please man up. We’re not out of the game. We should be but we’re not. If it’s not your man, it doesn’t matter, make the effort,” Cadd pleaded at the first change. The message fell on deaf ears. Somerville kicked seven goals to one for the term and made the Eagles look less than ordinary. In fact, when Panthers’ players were heard abusing each other and questioning one another’s commitment, it became downright embarrassing. Whilst Pearcedale had a match it would rather forget, Somerville kick started its season. The Eagles were ordinary in their first two matches but really hit back on Friday, their good players getting plenty of the footy. Cal Dixon was dominant, especially early, Leigh Stewart got plenty of it in his 300th game, Jedd Sutton had the ball on a string playing forward and through the middle, Josh Collie ran around doing as he liked providing enormous run from half back, Kane McKenzie, playing at full back, destroyed a lacklustre Pat Heijden and Todd Farrelly marked anything and everything that came near him. Sutton and Farrelly finished with four goals each. The only shining light for Pearcedale was Basil Sibosado, who played half forward and finished with three goals and gave a real effort. Crib Point enjoyed arguably its

PAGE 26

Tight tussle: Reigning premier Dromana lost to Crib Point by just one point in a thriller on Saturday. Picture: Andrew Hurst

best victory in five years when it came from behind to beat reigning premier Dromana by the smallest of margins on Saturday. Trailing by five points with a minute left on the clock, electrifying Magpies half forward Brad Davidson got on the end of a scrubber kick forward, gathered the footy and from a tight angle 30 metres from goal, gave his side a match winning one-point lead. The Davidson goal came after Dromana defender Christian Ongarello received a 50-metre penalty and goaled to give the Tigers the lead with a few minutes to play. The Magpies are in second place on the ladder, one of only two unbeaten sides after three games. Red Hill is the other. It was a “terrific victory” according to coach Duane Annable. Crib Point won the match 13.16 (94) to 13.15 (93). “The win was great for the group. It gives them a bit of belief and more importantly, hopefully gives us the respect that we are looking for,” Annable said. “We added a number of players to the list in the off season and they have certainly made a difference to the way we have approached the season. “No longer do you simply rock up to training and get a game. You have to earn your spot and you have to perform to keep it. “Better depth allows us to have rotations, which we haven’t been able to do in the past. “From the start of pre-season we have been doing competitive work with the football in our hands. If we

Chelsea Mordialloc Mentone News 30 April 2014

got injuries at training, so be it. We needed to get better defensively and this was the only way to get where we wanted to be. “In our first three games, it’s our tackling and pressure that has held us in good stead. It’s now important that we maintain it. It’s a tough competition with a lot of teams looking to play finals. Torin Petrie, cousin of Kangaroo Drew, and Glenn Boyd in his first game each kicked three goals for the Pies, while Jake Bromley was again among the best. “Jake is a club junior and has had a great start to the season. He puts his head where you wouldn’t stick your foot and he’s led the way in how we want to play our footy. Terry Wheeler was Dromana’s best, while Anthony Bruhn booted three goals. Rosebud went within four points of handing Sorrento its third straight defeat on Saturday at David McFarlane Reserve. Trailing by just 13 points at three quarter time after leading at half time, the Buds dominated the latter part of the last quarter after Sorrento got three goals in front, only to let themselves down with bad kicking (4.10 to 4.1), losing 12.16 (88) to 11.18 (84). Arguably the best player on the ground, Jack Jarman, shut down Sharks coach Troy Schwarze playing as a defensive half forward and finished with three goals. Jarman had a chance to win the game in the dying seconds but his shot just missed. However, there were plenty of other shots throughout the game that were also missed.

Rosebud played on its terms for the majority of the match but it couldn’t get the job done. The Sharks had seven goal kickers but lost Ben Schwarze with a quad strain. Rosebud should regain Greg Bentley this week. Rye stormed home to beat Devon Meadows in a low scoring game, 9.15 (69) to 7.10 (52). Brady Egan was superb for the winners with five goals while Jake and Luke Semmel and Jai Lloyd were also significant in the win. Ryan Semmel is still a contestant in the reality TV show The Rookie, which offers players the chance to be drafted by an AFL club. Callum O’Hare and Clint Setford were among the best for the Panthers, while James Bow, who kicked 12 goals last week, was restricted to just one major. Some individual brilliance from boom Hastings recruit Justin Berry and long-time stars Jason Kestle and Colin McVeigh helped the home side shake off Frankston Bombers on Anzac Day. Dylan Hand with four goals, Daniel Wishart and coach Brendan Dunne were also big contributors in the win. Trailing by seven points at three quarter time, the Blues struggled to get going in the last but eventually the quality all over the ground shone through and they were able to kick clear to win 13.12 (90) to 10.12 (72). The Blues played selfish footy in the first three and a half quarters while the opposition did exactly the opposite. Brendan Dunne coached sides are usually a very disciplined, cohesive,

committed football team but the Blues are a long way off that at the moment. They run forward of the footy, are not prepared to push back to defend and try and be too cute with the footy. Talent, which the Blues have it in spades, will only get them so far. They need to lift their work rate and stay disciplined and structured to compete against the best. The Bombers were fantastic but rely very much on their good players to get the job done - Mitch Bosward, Jay Reynolds, James Degenhardt, Duncan Proud, Zac Longham (six goals), Shaun Foster and Jeremy Waixel. The Bombers won’t be easy beats this season and the kids will continue to improve with game time. Red Hill is on top of the ladder after thrashing Tyabb 27.16 (178) to 2.3 (15). While the woes of the Yabbies are understandable, Red Hill recorded its first 20-plus goal win in more than a decade on Saturday. The Hillmen have arrived. Hillmen coach Tony Blackford rested five players for the match, all with soreness. It made little difference, Jarred Eames booting six goals and Michael Dillon five, while Matt Hyden kicked three and was one of the best players on the ground, along with Harry Larwill and Michael Mock. Ethan Rahilly was the best of the Yabbies.

Kangas prove point with fighting win PENINSULA LEAGUE

By Toe Punt LANGWARRIN proved that it is capable of playing with the big boys of Peninsula League after fighting off Mt Eliza at Lloyd Park on Saturday. The Kangas appeared to be the big improvers of the competition leading up to the beginning of the season and backed that up by winning their opening two games of the season in easy fashion. However, the first two wins came against sides - Karingal and Pines - that are not expected to play finals footy in 2014. The real test for Langwarrin was on Saturday and it came out of it with a big pass mark, winning 13.9 (87) to 8.13 (61). The Redlegs won the toss and kicked with the aid of a three goal breeze in the first quarter. Although leading at the change by 11 points, the Redlegs probably didn’t do enough with the advantage they had. By half time, Langwarrin had kicked six second quarter goals to one and opened up a more than handy 16-point lead. The Kangas went into the game without key ruckman Luke O’Neil but replacement Nick Hammill, along with regular ruckman Matt Naughton, had the better of Redlegs man mountain John Meesen. Rikki Johnson was also back after missing a week and Matt Dimkos made his debut. The home side set up the win in the third quarter, booting six goals against the breeze to Mt Eliza’s four majors. At the final change, the Kangas led by 30 points. The final quarter was a scrap, the visitors booting four behinds to be the only scorers of the term. Langwarrin named young star Blake Harkness their best player, along with Hammill, Luke Churcher and Dan Wehner. Beau Muston booted three goals playing through the middle and in attack. Winning coach Gavin Artico said Harkness was “a gun”. “Blake just makes the right decisions all of the time and we all love him being in the team,”Artico said. “It was a real high pressure game. It looked sloppy and scrappy from where I stood but talking to Mt Eliza and my own players after the game, they said the pressure was enormous throughout the game. “From my point of view, for this group to hang in there and win a really high intensity game was really pleasing.

“Mt Eliza hit the front in the third quarter and in the past we probably would have buckled. But we got on with the job, hit back and opened up a five goal break. “It was a really important win for us. We are improving all the time and if we are going to play finals footy, we have to beat good sides like Mt Eliza,” Artico said. Langwarrin sits in second place on the ladder, one of three unbeaten teams of the competition, along with YCW and Edithvale. Frankston YCW is on top of the ladder with a massive percentage after beating Karingal by a whopping 29 goals. The Stonecats booted 13 goals in the opening half and a further 15 in the second hour, winning 28.20 (188) to 1.4 (10). YCW forward Ricky Morris booted six goals to make it 16 for the season while Michael Chaplin and Dave Bodley finished with three each. Anthony Barry, who is on Western Bulldogs VFL top-up list, was named best afield. Luke Van Raay and Michael Burke were named Karingal’s best. Before the game, YCW coach Scott Mathers said that the structure of his side hadn’t changed a lot in the off season. “We were disappointed to lose a couple of players during the off season but were fortunate to maintain the majority of our list,” Mathers said. “When you have the quality of our list, you should be confident that you can still perform against the best sides in the competition. “We might lose Bundy (Barry) for a few games and Ash Eames may move back to Albury but at this stage, they’re playing and playing well. “We tinkered with a few things but not a lot has changed in terms of our game style. If it’s not broken, I don’t see the need to fix it,” Mathers said. Mornington coach Stuart Seager wanted a big scalp and he got just that after his side thrashed Bonbeach by 43 points. Seager said before the game that if his side was to be a real threat this season, it needed to play well against Bonbeach. “The reality is that we’ve recruited well in the off season and if we are to be considered a top three chance, we need to beat Bonbeach on our own ground,” Seager said. Mornington trailed by two goals at quarter time but booted six unanswered goals in the second term to lead by five goals at the break.

Panthers smashed: Pearcedale failed to get to grips with tackling Somerville in its Nepean League game, going down by 52 points on Anzac Day. Picture: Doug Farr

Inaccuracy (15.21 to 10.8) cost the Doggies a bigger win in the end. Michael Gay dominated in the ruck once again for the winners while Aiden Speedy again got plenty of the footy, along with Danny Nolan. Shaun Foster booted three majors for the Sharks while Mark Tyrell, Matt Clifford and Jackson Casey were named amongst their best. Pines registered its first win of the season, dominating after quarter time to beat Chelsea by 45 points, 14.11 (95) to 7.8 (50). Shaun White kicked three goals and Dale Tedge and Guy Hendry two each for the Pythons while 18-year-old Jayden Luca finished with a couple of majors and plenty of touches playing at half forward. Todd Gardiner and Jack Greeley

were the Gulls’ best while Jayden Attard and Matty Baxter found plenty of the footy once again. Chelsea coach Paul Howroyd said he wasn’t expecting miracles from him team. “We have a lot of new faces and the guys who are here really want to be here. We’ll keep improving and that’s all we can do at this stage,” Howroyd said. In the final match of the round, reigning premier Edithvale-Aspendale had to pull out all of its tricks to get over Seaford. Coach Troy Shannon said before the game that things were always tough against Seaford. “I don’t know what it is but we always seem to have trouble beating Seaford. In fact, they’ve had the

wood over us for some time,” he said. History almost repeated itself on Saturday, Edithvale coming from eight points down at three-quarter time to eventually win by 10 points, 12.12 (84) to 10.14 (74). The Tigers welcomed back Brayden Irving to the team as a result of Frankston VFL’s Development squad having a bye. Whilst Irving didn’t have a major impact, he still helped the structure and potency of the team. The Eagles went in without Tim Mavric and Timmy Mannix, while Beau Turner resumed in the reserves. The Eagles’ Jeremy Heys was superb with three goals to be one of the best players on the ground, while Jeremy Stokes was Seaford’s best.
