Power outage compo Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au BAYSIDE residents left without power during a weekend heatwave may be financially compensated for the loss of refrigerated and frozen food during a widespread electricity outage. Homes in several Kingston suburbs including Mordialloc and Chelsea were among 50,000 homes across Victoria forced to cope with sweltering heat and humidity as temperatures rose above 40 degrees Celsius on Sunday evening (28 January). Premier Daniel Andrews coincidentally visited Mentone the next day to announce funding to build and upgrade kindergartens across the state when talk turned to frustration about the power outage. At a media conference to announce the kindergarten funding, the Premier said electricity distribution network faults caused the outage. “This was not a power supply issue,” Mr Andrews said. “This was about distribution and localised faults.” He said the Labor state government will “look at all means” to force energy companies to compensate the people af-

fected by the power outage. The extensive use of air conditioners across suburbs where residents sought respite from Sunday’s oppressive heat may have triggered network outages at a local level. South east region energy provider United Energy admitted it was to blame for electricity outages across the area after 500 fuses failed across its network. “We caused this and we’re looking into it as best we can,” United Energy Ross Musgrove told Channel 7 News. He apologised to those who suffered power outages. Liberal state opposition leader Matthew Guy said the state government should shoulder the blame for the power outage. “Energy is an essential service and it is the government’s responsibility to plan for a growing population and to ensure we have the necessary infrastructure to keep Victorians safe and keep the lights on,” Mr Guy said in a statement. “With Victoria growing by over 100,000 people a year, we need a plan to cater for this growth. “Daniel Andrews keeps passing the blame onto someone else – but the buck stops with him.”

Australia Day weekend water rescue, patrols CARRUM’S volunteer surf lifesavers were kept busy over the hot long weekend with record numbers of beachgoers, lots of preventative actions, several first-aid cases and a rescue. Over the three days, the lifesavers kept watch over 9400 visitors at Carrum beach during patrol hours – nearly half on Sunday (28 January). With temperatures over 40-degrees Celsius that day, the volunteers extended their patrols from 10.30am8.45pm. Normally they would patrol noon-5pm. The extra vigilance was warranted. In mid-afternoon, on the Sunday a four-year-old Cranbourne girl was rescued by a lifesaver on a rescue board 200 metres from shore. The man she was with was so fatigued he was unable to get them both back to the beach. Even before patrols had begun on Australia Day, lifesavers were called to assist a man who had dislocated and fractured his toe. Their four first-aid cases included a woman who had crushed her fingers in the electric sunroof of a car and a girl who grazed her leg falling down the rocks at Patterson River. Carrum lifesavers are keen to keep people from getting into danger, and they’re proud of the 90 preventative actions they completed over the weekend. “Every preventative action is a potential rescue averted, and

every rescue is a potential drowning averted,” Carrum SLSC patrol captain Charlie Barton said. Their hard work was rewarded with some beachgoers going out of their way just to say “thank you” to the volunteers. The key messages the lifesavers have for beach visitors are: It’s never safe to swim in or near Patterson River, and “We can’t save you if we can’t see you” – so swim between the flags.

To find out patrolled locations download the beachsafe app or visit beachsafe.org.au Multilingual resources can also be found at beachsafe.org.au/surf-safety/ multilingual which has guides on how to enjoy the beach safely. The Vic Emergency App has waterway warnings at emergency.vic.gov.au and up-to-date conditions and warnings can be found at the Bureau of Meteorology app or bom.gov.au

Bar pops up for sixth time SUMMER nights will once again be filled with live music thanks to the return of the popular Kingston Arts Pop Up Bar for a sixth consecutive year. The newly renovated Kingston Arts courtyard in Moorabbin will host free live music every Friday night in February. “This is a great annual event where our community gathers together with friends, family and workmates to enjoy fantastic live music right here in the neighbourhood,” the mayor Cr Steve Staikos said. The Pop Up Bar is part of Kingston Arts’ year-round calendar of events including theatre performances, children’s entertainment, art house movies and comedy shows. Performers at the 2017 Pop Up Bar include: n 2 February - Soulfire with Andrea Marr n 9 February - Jam The FUNK 16 February - Soul Sacrifice (Santana Cover Band) n 23 February - Soul Sister and Dirty Laundry Artist-in-residence Robert Scholten will be running a hands-on interactive art event to entertain all ages on 2 and 9 February. The weekly event will also feature: n a chill-out zone featuring DJs, giant Jenga game and interactive art a variety of food trucks including Greek Trojan, Mutter Krause, Nuoc Mama, Yo India and The Real Jerk n Braeside brewery The Boatrocker Brewing Company will supply craft beer. For further information see kingstonarts.com.au online.

Eyes out for meter thieves

Bar back: A pop-up bar will be hosted at Moorabbin’s Kingston City Hall during the summer and live music will be a Friday night treat featuring bands including Jam The FUNK, right.

A SPATE of water meter thefts in the Bonbeach area is concerning police. Detective Senior Sergeant Shane Cashman, of Moorabbin CIU, said the meters were being taken from both established and new houses. Although the thieves get a paltry $20-$30 for the scrap metal their loss causes inconvenience and a much greater expense to property owners as their water is shut off for days and they are not able to shower, flush the toilet, or cook. They then have to arrange a time for reconnection and pay the new price to the water company and foot the bill for the plumber. Businesses can potentially suffer huge losses if machines have to be shut down until water is reconnected. About 20 meters were stolen from schools, sporting clubs, houses and commercial properties in the Seaford, Frankston North and Frankston areas over the past six weeks. Detective Leading Senior Constable Ash Eames, of Frankston CIU, said the meters were “easily stolen by desperate thieves and only require unbolting with a shifter”. “The issue for the thieves is offloading them, as reputable scrap metal dealers won’t accept them and provide details to police of anyone attempting to sell them,” he said. Police urge residents to keep an eye out for any suspicious activity, especially late at night or the early hours of the morning when most of the thefts occur.

New beach access soon for Pt Leo ORGANISERS hope accessing the beach at Point Leo will be made easier for the next event being held by the Disabled Surfers Association Mornington Peninsula. Plans have been approved for a boardwalk providing wheelchair access from Point Leo Lifesaving Club. DSAMP secretary Bill Hallett hoped the boardwalk would be finished in time for the association’s next surf day, Saturday 3 March “but certainly before the end of March”. When completed, the boardwalk will have a 1.2 metre wide wheelchair ramp leading to the beach from a six metre by six metre viewing platform. Two metre wide steps will also provide access to the beach from the platform designed to provide lifesavers with views along the beach. Mr Hallet said the boardwalk will follow the southern sand dune to the beach “making for

greater access for all our events and the general public throughout the year”. “Also, the Pt Leo Surf Life Saving Club will have the best viewing platform to work from while on patrol.” The project has been put together by DSAMP, Point Leo Foreshore Committee and the lifesaving club. The DSAMP surf day on Saturday 13 January saw 60 surfers take to the water with the help of 282 volunteers. DSAMP president Jenny Anglis-Goodall said the event was “fantastic” with “a few new ideas” contributing “really well to the event”. “DSAMP event days help bring the community together, improving understanding and joyfully recognising people who just happen to have a disability,” Ms Anglis-Goodall said.

The passengers were argumentative and the driver ordered them out on the corner of Thompson Rd and Gladesville Boulevard.

AN Edithvale man was hit over the head with a baseball bat or iron bar as he walked home from the station, 1.45am, Sunday 28 January.

Citizens of the Year saluted Ken and Sue Gooding with mayor Steve Staikos

Friends of Edithvale-Seaford Wetlands

Ron Fitch AN environmental group, an emergency services volunteer and a couple behind a key community charity were honoured at the 2018 Kingston Australia Day Awards last week. The awards were announced as part of Kingston Council’s annual Australia Day Breakfast on Friday (26 January) at the Kingston City Hall. Three awards were announced on Australia Day - Citizen of the Year, Outstanding Citizen Award, Community Group of the Year and Young Community Group of the Year. Presenting the awards, the mayor Cr Steve Staikos said the award winners were selected because of their passion and selfless commitment to volunteerism and to recognise the work they do to make Kingston a stronger community. “The recipients of these honours have made outstanding contributions across a wide range of areas in Kingston,” Cr Staikos said. “We have some amazing volun-

teers in Kingston and these awards are a great way to thank them for their efforts and acknowledge the positive impact they make.”

Citizen of the Year: Ken and Sue Gooding HUNDREDS of families in need of help turn to Pantry 5000 each week for food, support and a friendly face. The service is run by a team of volunteers spearheaded by Ken and Sue Gooding. The retired schoolteachers dedicate countless hours to the service which is based at Carrum’s St Aiden’s Church Hall. The couple make an incredible difference in the lives of many in the community and they have had an incredible impact on people in need plus the team of volunteers they lead. For those in our community requiring extra support, Ken and Sue provide a place to feel safe, comfort-

able and respected. The service requires substantial effort and Ken and Sue rise to the challenge spending much time collecting food, holding fundraisers, running the service and organising volunteers. Thanks to their efforts Pantry 5000 has become a key community-led initiative that serves around 600 people each week to help them back on their feet.

Outstanding Citizen: Ron Fitch

WHEN disaster strikes, the community calls on the dedicated Chelsea SES team in their hour of need. Ron Fitch has been answering their calls for help for over 25 years, helping local families through difficult times. An SES controller for more than two decades, Ron has been at the forefront of training, recruiting and raising funds to keep the Chelsea

unit going strong. He has also helped improve community safety across the entire municipality through his role on the Kingston Municipal Emergency Management Planning Committee which works to make sure emergency services are well prepared and working together in times of emergency events. Due to Ron’s dedication, the Chelsea unit has been recognised by the SES for its training regime and has received a number of awards. He has also been instrumental in successfully lobbying for government funding for a new Chelsea SES headquarters that will serve the community for decades to come.

Community Group of the Year: Friends of Edithvale - Seaford Wetlands FOR more than 25 years the Friends of Edithvale-Seaford Wetlands has been helping protect, preserve and

celebrate the jewel in Kingston’s environmental crown. The group’s team of active volunteers undertake a wide range of activities to showcase the internationally recognised EdithvaleSeaford Wetlands to the community including: n Hosting more than 20 wetlands group tours last year n Leading regular wetland community walks n Manning the Bird Hide and education centres n Maintaining a website and social media to promote the wetlands to the community. The Friends of Edithvale-Seaford Wetlands Group works in partnership with Melbourne Water and conducts regular community consultation and services offered at the site. They were instrumental in reopening the Bird Hide at Edithvale in 2016 - a mecca for bird watchers that has attracted hundreds of new visitors.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Young Frankston boy reported missing Compiled by Brodie Cowburn A CHILD of five years has been missing from Frankston since Saturday afternoon. The foster mother, Mrs Rose Priest of Gwynne Avenue, Frankston Heights, states that the child was taken away in a buggy by a soldier from Broadmeadows camp and no trace of him had since been obtained. He was in no way related to the child but had been boarding with Mrs Priest. He is supposed to be a deserter from the camp, as on inquiry there it was ascertained that he should have returned last week. His wife resides at Carlton but he had not been there since Friday last. Mrs Priest said she had reported the matter to the Frankston police on Saturdy and they advised her to take out a warrant. The child is described as fairly tall for her age with dark complexion and dark brown hair, and was dressed in a black coney skin coat and bonnet, and tan sandals. *** A VERY petty case of theft was perpetrated at the Frankston State School a day or two ago, when the rope belonging to the flag pole, in the school grounds, was taken away. The School Board offers a reward of £1 for evidence sufficient to convict the person who did the deed. It is to be hoped he has now got enough rope to hang himself with. *** AN enterprising Frankston worker, rumour says, has set his mind on raising £100 for the funds of St Paul’s Church of England of and it is safe

to assume that the labours of the individual referred to will bear the anticipated fruit. *** IF Frankston runs a Water Carnival and Regatta on Easter Monday as is mooted, we hear the donor of a valuable trophy for a yacht race can be found locally. It is to be hoped that the meeting called for Friday evening February 1st will be packed to the doors. *** CR Dave Bell, Mrs Bell and family, of ‘’Banff” Princes Hill, have returned home after a very pleasant holiday spent at Frankston. *** THE Misses Pratt of “Durham” South Yarra, have just returned from Frankston, after a very enjoyable holiday spent there. *** A FETE will be held at the Tyabb Recreation Ground on Monday next, in aid of the local Red Cross Society, when a good programme of sports will be gone through. *** THE annual meeting of the Frankston Mechanics and Free Library takes place on Thursday next in the hall, when the annual report and balance sheet will be received and officers elected for the ensuing year. *** A MEETING is called for Friday, 1st February, in another column. Seaside allotments are again selling freely in Frankston. During last week several lots changed hands at good prices. Frankston is fast growing , and appears to possess an excellent future.

*** THERE is talk about a great treat for lovers of music, in Frankston, about Easter time. A number of star city artists will probably be brought to Frankston, to raise revenue for the Repatriation Fund. *** AT a committee meeting of the Wattle Club held in the Hall on Thursday afternoon last, Miss Young’s resignation as secretary of is the Club was tendered and reluctantly accepted. Miss Young, who has held the position for fifteen months, finds that the Club has grown to such in extent, that it requires more energy and attention than she has time to devote to it on account of being tied to business. Mrs Wilcox has been appointed secretary till the end of the financial year. *** AT the Roseville tennis Championships tournament recently held near Sydney, Mr Frank Plowman, (who has just completed his third year as a Staff Cadet, at the Royal Military College, Duntroon) has, with Mr A. H. Raleigh, won the New South Wales country doubles championship. The Sydney sporting press speaks in very high terms of his play and especially of his remarkable service. *** MRS Lee notifies in another column that she is opening an emporium for ladies and children’s underclothing, general drapery and dressmaking, in premises in Young street, adjoining Mr Wells’ butcher’s shop. As Mrs Lee comes with good credentials and guarantees to sell under

Melbourne prices, she will doubtless be well patronised. *** SINCE operations connected with the Naval Base and Mornington Peninsula were begun several townships have applied to share in the supply. The Water Commission states that, while conserving the interests of centres included in the original scheme, it will add to the list any township that can he supplied effectively if the financial return to the State will prove satisfactory. Construction work has been expedited lately, and in a report the commission states that the construction of the Beaconsfield reservoir, which is to act as a regulating storage, is progressing well, the site being in the Haunted Gully, about 3 miles north of Beaconsfield. In this over 200,000,000 gallons of water can be stored at very small cost. This storage will enable a very early supply from the Toomuc Creek to be sent to the Naval Base, and although it will eventually be connected with the main supply on the Bunyip River it will afford a satisfactory service in the meantime. It is hoped to supply the Naval Base with water during the current year. *** A DEFINITE settlement of the dispute concerning coal supply between the Victorian Government and New South Wales Government was reached on Tuesday. In the morning Victoria and New South Wales Ministers interviewed the Railway Commissioners with Mr J. Brown, from whose mines coal

for Victoria is being drawn, and a proposed contract be discussed. The Railway Commissioners, Mr Brown, Mr Heagleth, (ex-Minister for Agriculture) and New South Wales Minister attended a Cabinet meeting in the afternoon when the proposed agreement was again considered at length. *** OPPOSITION is being shown by some local residents to the rating system which will be necessary, under the Water Commission scheme, for drainage of the area south of the Eel Race Road. The scheme, which has been undertaken at the request of certain settlers, involves an expenditure of £1250, and a deputation on Monday placed their views before the Commission. *** £1 REWARD will be paid for information leading to the conviction of the person who removed the halliard from State School flag pole. *** MRS SHEARER (Organist) desires to return sincere and heartfelt thanks to the members of the Church of England Langwarrin. who so kindly presented her with a beautiful hymn book with music, which will always be very highly valued. *** ADAMSON, STRETTLE, and CO. Prop. Ltd. will hold a Special Horse Sale on March 11 at One’ o’clock, When they will offer 80 Horses and Ponies. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 26 January 1918

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

The Great Gingerbread House Decorating Epiphany By Stuart McCullough I GOT carried away. Which is to say that my transition from bewildered detachment through to enraptured hysteria was such that I temporarily abandoned any notion of goodwill to others. Instead, I elected to mercilessly crush the opposition and do all things necessary to secure a glorious victory that, in my mind at least, would be celebrated through the ages. I speak, of course, of competitive gingerbread house decorating. I was a third wheel of sorts. Which is to say that I was attending a Christmas lunch with my sister in law who, in turn, was hosting her in laws. I’m not sure what an in law once removed is, but that’s what I was. (I’m not sure about the expression ‘third wheel’. When you think about it, a third wheel is, in actual fact, pretty useful. Try driving without a third wheel and see how far you get.) As a ‘plus one’, my job for the day was to refrain from any conduct that could be remotely described as embarrassing. This is more difficult than it sounds. Lunch was delightful. Both the food and the conversation were great. As the meal ended, I wondered what might come next. In our family, we defy the gravitational effects of a really large lunch by playing cricket in the back yard. This goes on until all the balls have been tonked into the long grass of the paddock next door and we decide to leave them to the snakes. For other families, Christmas lunch is followed by a screening of a movie – like A Very Brady Christmas, It’s A Wonderful Life or, depending on your preference, Die Hard.

PAGE 12

As it turns out, my in laws in law (if that’s a thing) are not ones for back yard cricket or yuletide viewings of Die Hard. No one was interested in a nap. As the plates were cleared, one family member emitted a battle cry declaring it was ‘game on’ and that the annual gingerbread house throwdown had commenced. At first I didn’t take it seriously. But it soon became clear that this annual competition involved picking teams, strategy sessions and, in the end, a winner and a loser. Determined not to make any waves, I resolved to do just enough to avoid ignominy whilst taking the first opportunity to slink away. To make me, as the relative newcomer, feel as welcome as possible, I was chosen dead last.

Chelsea Mordialloc Mentone News 31 January 2018

Clearly, despite the convivial atmosphere, everyone regarded me as something of a deadweight. I headed into the strategy session, where various ideas were floated. None of them seemed quite right. I’d earlier spotted a packet of gummy bears in the kitchen and was convinced that the only logical theme for our gingerbread house was ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’. My team members embraced the idea with gusto. Having quickly drawn up blueprints and gained local council approval, we set about decorating our gingerbread house. I started by hand-carving Goldilocks using a chocolate button, icing, half a Smartie and small pieces of licorice. With my Goldilocks setting in the fridge, I moved on to

creating lawn by pulverizing a mint crisp chocolate bar I stole from my wife’s handbag. In the midst of my feverish pounding, I looked up and noticed that the rest of my team were proceeding in a far more casual manner. It was then that I crossed over. Suddenly, I was barking orders. I had a vision for this gingerbread house and nothing was going to stand in my way. We made snow by grating white chocolate, a window for Goldilocks to look through and a pathway for the returning bears. Using a licorice strap, I carved a small shotgun for one of the bears. Whilst the idea of a fairytale character packing heat may seem odd, it’s worth remembering that Goldilocks, at its heart, is the story of a home invasion.

Those bears have a right to defend themselves and their porridge by any means necessary. Then I took things too far. When one of my teammates held up a car made of licorice allsorts (you didn’t expect Goldilocks to walk, did you?), I demanded to know how fuelefficient the engine was. Like Kurtz, I was heading further and further up the river into complete madness. Naturally, the end result was a masterpiece. Indeed, our gingerbread house was so awesome that I wouldn’t have been a bit surprised if a tiny gingerbread Kevin McCloud had appeared and showered me with praise. That the other house was deemed to be the ultimate winner was a substantial miscarriage of justice. I haven’t given up hope - the results of the drug tests I insisted on are yet to come back. I’m pretty sure the other team will be disqualified. Christmas is a funny thing. Sometimes you’re with your immediate family, sometimes with a newer family. In a way, family is as elastic a concept as anything else and it’s these kinds of events that serve a reminder of how life moves and changers. For me, it’s always interesting to see what role ritual plays in these gatherings. Traditions give us comfort, make us feel safe. More than that, they make us feel as if we belong. As for me, I will spend the coming year working on my gingerbread house decorating skills so that I’m ready for Christmas when it next rolls around. Assuming, of course, that I’m invited back. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Mounties, POB in epic contest PROVINCIAL

By IT Gully MT Eliza and Peninsula Old Boys are locked in an epic battle in the match of the day in MPCA Provincial cricket. The Mounties lasted just 54.1 overs before being bundled out for 151. The top order did OK, but the Mounties were failed by their lower order. Tim Clarke top scored the Mounties

with 41 while Lyle House contributed 30. Surprisingly, POB skipper Wade Pelzer was the pick of the bowlers, snaring 3/24 from nine overs. Jon Forrest was at his best picking up 3/24 off 18 overs. James La Brooy also claimed 3/38. POB was forced to face the final 25 overs of the day and will resume at 3/50. Pelzer is still at the crease unbeaten on 22.

Langwarrin is in the box seat against Sorrento at Lloyd Park. The Kangas batted first and once again it was Matt Prosser who got his team away to a flyer. Skipper Travis Campbell was more than handy with the bat yet again, while Joel Bateman hit a timely 43 and Jake Prosser 35. CJ King was the pick of the bowlers for the Sorras, taking 3/40. The Kangas total of 261 is going to

Hillmen back to best

be a tough chase for Sorrento. Brad McDonald has once again steered Mornington to a competitive total of 208 against Crib Point. McDonald top scored with 45 while Nick Johnson provided a valuable 42 batting in the bottom order. Magpies star Luke Herrington sent down 19.2 overs for a return of 4/51. The Magpies faced the final over of the day and escaped without loss. Baxter has some work to do with

the ball after scoring just 190 against Pearcedale. The home side was 2/15 when Joe Rule and Dale Irving were dismissed cheaply. Chris Brittain (39) and Daniel Warwick (63) got things back on track while Justin Bridgeman also added 32. Unfortunately for Baxter, only 41 runs came from the last 6 batsmen. Jake Roberts was a revelation for the Panthers taking 5/65 from 30.5 overs.

PENINSULA

By IT Gully RED Hill was back to its run machine best, smacking 7/313 against Moorooduc in MPCA Peninsula cricket. Matt Merifield was back to his vintage best with 83 off 93 balls, while Brent Martin also played a significant role scoring 88. The evergreen Kenny Cremen wound back the clock opening with 16 overs and snatching 4/48. Long Island and Pines are locked in a dour struggle at Eric Bell Reserve. The Islanders batted first and didn’t set the world on fire with the bat, scoring just 154 despite a number of players getting starts. Captain Aaron Paxton opened with a top score of 31 while brother James Paxton hit 21 batting at number 10. Harley Parker was the best of the Pines bowlers with 4/32 while Alex Coad snared 2/34. Pines didn’t fare well with the bat in the final 14 overs of the day, losing 2/22. The Delacombe Park and Main Ridge match is sure to go down to the wire after 11 wickets fell on the opening day. The Parkers batted first and were bowled out for 197, Ricky Ramsdale top scoring with 77 while Jon Guthrie opened with 34. James Abbott was the pick of the Ridge bowlers with 3/37 while Luke Collins helped himself to 3/47. The Ridge faced the final seven overs of the day and the Parkers claimed the vital wicket of Michael Holmes. The Ridge will resume at 1/8. Flinders has set Somerville 208 for victory in their clash at Somerville Reserve. The Sharks won the toss and Blake Hogan-Keogh got his team away to a good start with 57 while Shane Beggs continued his run feast with 47. Matt Eager was the pick of the Somerville bowlers with 3/38 while Jayde Herrick and Jay Parker each took two wickets.

Tigers close to victory SUB-DISTRICT

By IT Gully DROMANA is just 14 runs shy of victory with six wickets in hand against Tyabb in MPCA Sub District cricket. The Yabbies batted first and faced just 50 overs. Brodie Bennett hit 36 off 34 deliveries including three sixes. Nick Toranto was the next best with 21. Jeff Bluhm was superb for the Hoppers bowling 20 overs and picking up 4/24. Jye Voelkl was also impressive with the ball picking up 3/24 off nine overs. Dromana batted the final 30 overs of the day and despite a horror start (3/25) they recovered to be 4/115 at stumps.

PAGE 14

Jack Fowler was the last man to go for 51 while Jedd Savage is unbeaten on 38. Boneo needs 51 runs with just six wickets in hand against Tootgarook in the top of the table clash. The Frogs batted first and lasted just 55 overs for 88 runs. Cameron Williams was superb for the Pandas with 6/23 from 19.4 overs. In reply, Boneo lost its top four batsmen for just 38. Frankston YCW has set Ballam Park a massive task to score the 285 required for victory. Stonecats captain Jason Bedford was at his brilliant best scoring 112 while Luke Hutchinson opened with 68. Justin Moore was the best of the Ballam Park bowlers, claiming 3/56 from

Chelsea Mordialloc Mentone News 31 January 2018

16 overs. Carrum Downs will be looking for 235 runs when they bat this week chasing Carrum’s 9/234. Zack Dent top scored for the Lions with 46 while Corey Hand and Craig Foster each hit 42. David Dervan was the pick of the Cougars bowlers with 3/53. Balnarring will be looking for another 152 runs on the second day of its match against Skye. Skye batted first and made 171. Clint Donohue opened with 60 while Sam Beckham was next best with 21. The Saints’ Ben King bowled 22 overs for a return of 4/50. In reply, Balnarring will resume at 1/20.

By IT Gully FOR one of the first times this season Hastings has placed itself in a strong position to win after batting first against Mt Martha in MPCA District cricket. The Blues were sent in to bat by the Reds, clearly aware of the Blues’ recent batting form. However, Nathan Hunt opened with 49 and Luke Hewitt contributed 40 while the middle order picked up some handy runs as well, to help the Blues to 187. Kade Bendle sent down 25 overs and was rewarded with 4/71. Brad Schreuder was the next best for the Reds with the ball snaring 4/56. Mt Martha faced the final 15 overs for the day and will resume at 1/22. Seaford is in a world of pain against Rye, even though 14 wickets fell on the first day. Rye batted the first 70 overs of the day and were bowled out for 160, Aar-

on Fidders top scoring with 31 while Andrew Dunn scored a timely 25. Facing the final 10 overs of the day, Seaford slumped to 4/42. Rick Graham snared 2/4 from two overs. Seaford Tigers have already won their game against Rosebud. The Buds batted first after winning the toss and could only muster 77. Pat Nagle was the only batsman who should be satisfied with his performance scoring 34. In reply the Tigers took Rosebud to task, clearly hunting an outright victory. The Tigers scored 3/141 in just 33 overs with Ash Mills belting 85. Kristian Miller scored a sensational 104 in Heatherhill’s 236 against Baden Powell. Brett Maxwell batting at 10 contributed 31 at the end of the innings to help the Hills to a very competitive total. Braves skipper Craig Entwistle took 4/48 from 19.2 overs.

Peace breaks out at Southern United SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie SCRIPTWRITERS for the hit TV series Vikings could draw inspiration from the goings-on at Southern United. The NPL women’s club came into being in late 2015 as a consortium comprised of representatives from Langwarrin, Casey Comets, Mornington, Peninsula Strikers and Seaford United. There was much fanfare and high expectations for a club with the largest catchment area in the elite competition. But while trying to find its feet in the newly created league Southern found itself slowly but surely immersed in a civil war that would have brought a smile to the face of Ivar the Boneless. The club’s inaugural president was former Matildas keeper and Football Federation Australia Hall of Fame inductee Theresa Deas who stepped down to become vice-president at the AGM last November. She resigned a fortnight ago. Stuart McLeod had taken over from Deas as president. He resigned a fortnight ago. The club’s inaugural secretary was Michael Woodward. He resigned three weeks ago. Last November Southern announced the appointment of Graham Dudley as operations manager and technical director. He resigned a fortnight ago. In December the club announced the appointment of Brian Murphy as under-19s coach. He resigned a fortnight ago. And the list goes on. But emerging from the wreckage that was a crunch committee meeting a fortnight back was Shannon Palmer, co-owner of STR Truck Bodies, Southern’s major sponsor until recently and destined to once again fulfil that role. Her daughter Talia was part of Southern’s allconquering under-13 side which swept to championship and Grand Final glory last year and remains the jewel in the club’s thorny crown. Palmer, who now heads a seven-member committee, is the club’s third president in three months and she has a mountain to climb. First and foremost Southern has a $40,000-plus debt to deal with. Coaches are owed money from last season, a sticking point with the NPL’s 2017 Coaches of the Year, Rob Giabardo and Bill Mihaloudis, who quit their roles as joint senior coaches last October and switched to rival Bayside United taking the bulk of the senior squad with them including Candy Ferreyra-Bas, 2017 NPLW Gold Medal winner. But Palmer aims to tackle the financial turmoil head-on. “At the moment we are piecing together information from the previous committee,” she said. “It’s going to take a good 12 months (to stabilise) but addressing the financial situation is a priority and I’ll take all the measures required to see that this is rectified.” The club almost struck another major hurdle a week ago when senior coach Aaron Myatt came

perilously close to joining the burgeoning list of resignees. The debt, the player exodus, the administrative upheaval and a lucrative offer from a rival club which included paying for his A licence coaching course and subsidising his Pro licence tested him to the limit. But Myatt takes pride in being one of the club’s foundation coaches and after a warts-and-all meeting with the new committee, he reaffirmed his commitment to his role. He then headed straight to Murphy’s home and after a lengthy conversation the Irishman is back in charge of the under-19s and assisting Myatt with the seniors. Just five players from last year’s senior squad remain – goalkeeper Freya Crocker, defender Natasha Dakic, midfielder Nikolina Bucalo, forward Jess Beddows and defender Indre Christy – but the club has signed Hong Kong international midfielder Lau Yui Ching (Avery Lau) from Kitchee. The 22-year-old former Lung Moon star is required for international duty and doesn’t arrive until Tuesday 6 March so she should make her debut in Southern’s Sunday 11 March clash with Alamein at Monterey Reserve at 6pm. Defender Ella Douglass and forward Sarah Wieck have been signed from Bayside United along with 16-year-old winger Maylinda Emini from Brandon Park. Southern has a Scottish contact and is currently on the lookout in the UK for a central defender to fill its second visa spot. The club’s under-12, under-14 and under-16 squads are strong and in good hands.

John Meades is in charge of the under-12s, Debbie Nichols and Emma Bracken oversee their stellar under-14 squad while noted development coach Andrea Vignati has the under-16 reins. All three squads swept past Alamein in an impressive recent hitout. Former Langwarrin president Tanya Wallace is now Southern’s community club liaison officer. She also is an ever-present advisor and Palmer is certain to draw upon Wallace’s experience as a football administrator. It’s clear that bridges need to be rebuilt and one of the first is to reopen a dialogue with the consortium’s foundation clubs, especially Casey Comets which has a successful and growing women’s program and has become estranged from Southern for various reasons. Palmer has already spoken at length with Football Federation Victoria president Kimon Taliadoros and plans to arrange a meeting with Comets president Dawn Stone among others. On Monday (29 January) Palmer meets with FFV’s commercial and media manager Anthony Grima to formulate a strategic plan to present to Taliadoros and his board. On Tuesday morning Palmer meets with council representatives to get a full rundown on the Wedge Road sports facility in Carrum Downs where Southern’s administrative headquarters will be based. The multi-million dollar upgrade received another boost last week with the state government announcing a further $2.2 million grant for a multi-purpose synthetic playing field. On Tuesday afternoon Palmer meets with the FFV’s club development team.

For Southern, there is so much to be done and so little time. Its season kicks-off on Sunday 25 February. And if the scriptwriters from “Vikings” were arranging the fixtures which club do you think they would have pitted against Southern for the season opener? You guessed it, Bayside United. In other news, Langwarrin’s two NPL visa spots will go to Scottish striker Liam Baxter and English midfielder Paul Speed. Connor Belger was widely tipped to take up one of the visa spots but is unable to commit to a full season and has been snapped up by Casey Comets where it is hoped he will be available for up to 16 games. The NPL2 season kicks off in under three weeks and features 28 rounds of matches. Langwarrin plays Box Hill United at Wembley Park on Saturday 17 February at 3.15pm and its first home game is at Lawton Park on Saturday 24 February at 3pm against Goulburn Valley Suns. There was a flurry of activity at Langy last week and the club has agreed terms with the following players: Andy McIntyre, Robbie Acs, Lewis Foster, Boris Ovcin, Paul Speed and Dylan Kilner (all with Langy last season), Luke Burgess (from Whittlesea Ranges), Harrison Michaelis (Bulleen), Andy McLean (Eltham Redbacks), John Kuol (Morwell Pegasus) and Victor Medini (Dandenong Thunder). More signings are expected this week. In State 1 news Max Etheridge arrives on Saturday from the UK to head up Mornington’s strike force. He is a former Morwell Pegasus, Bentleigh Greens and Kingston City player and is expected to play a pivotal role in the club’s title tilt. Mornington will take on Knox in a friendly at Egan Lee Reserve on Wednesday 7 February at 7pm. On Saturday 10 February Mornington travels to Kingston Heath Soccer Complex to take on NPL giant Bentleigh Greens. The reserves kick off at 9am and the senior match starts at 10.30am. Next Saturday the focus of local soccer switches to Baxter Park with the sixth staging of the Steve Wallace Memorial Cup. Group A comprises Langwarrin, Casey Comets, Peninsula Strikers and Baxter. Group B is made up of Mornington, Frankston Pines, Seaford United and Skye United. The annual fundraiser for the emergency department at Frankston Hospital is a round-robin event which kicks off at 10am with the Langwarrin v Peninsula Strikers (pitch 1) and Mornington v Seaford United (pitch 2) matches. In State 3 news Brett Heskins may be the bolter in Billy Armour’s Skye United senior squad. Heskins, 24, broke into Langwarrin’s senior team in the 2014 season after playing in the juniors and reserves. The defender stopped playing in 2015 and headed to the US the following year. Armour rates Heskins highly and is keen to lure the big man back to the sport.
