A pitch perfect season CHELSEA Soccer Club has its own team of ‘The Invincibles’ after its under 13 side went undefeated for the whole 2016 season. Arsene Wenger’s English Premier League title-winning Arsenal team were given the name when they went unbeaten throughout the 200304 season. After finishing first in the Sportsmart South Division, Chelsea Soccer Club’s under 13s played Glen Waverley in the semi-final winning 3-2 and then went on to win the metropolitan championship against the Western Eagles defeating them 2-1. Coach Carl Cafun and assistant coach Marius Roman have been coaching the core group for three years. “The great parent and club support for the

players has helped them achieve their success,” Cafun said. The club’s under 18s girls team finished as runners-up in the Metro League, a great achievement since the average age of the team is 16. Former Melbourne Victory champion striker Archie Thompson visited the club last month at the club’s annual presentation day on Sunday 18 September to hand out medals and trophies. The Chelsea Soccer Club’s annual general meeting will be held on Monday 10 October at the Edithvale Reserve in the HD Thomas Building.

Police patrol

Filming leads to trouble A WOMAN who filmed a group of youths assaulting and abusing an Asian man near the Patterson River boat ramp, Friday 30 September, was later assaulted by one of the alleged attackers. The Patterson Lakes woman, 62, was using her phone to film the youths on the walking path near the boat ramp at 6.18pm when she alleges one of them walked up to her and insulted her while telling her to stop filming. She said the youth then punched her hand, grabbed her phone and threw it over a fence. He is described as Caucasian, 17-18 years old, 183cm, dark hair, dark clothing with white writing on his T-shirt, and blue cap. The woman suffered swelling to her hand and pain up her arm, as well as soreness to her back and neck related to a pre-existing injury. Police patrolled for the youths but found only a T-shirt on a nearby bike path. Several hours later, a Frankston youth, 16, stag-

gered into a nearby supermarket claiming he had been bashed by a gang of Sudanese men in parkland near McLeod Drive. He said he was hit over the head with a baseball bat, kicked and punched. The youth was assisted by a passer-by while he passed in and out of consciousness. The passerby called his parents who took him to Peninsula Private Hospital. He was treated for multiple abrasions to his neck, chest and back, “two large eggs” on the rear of his head as well as neck, hip and leg pain. He was allegedly intoxicated, had no shirt on, and was wearing the same shoes and pants as the youth who allegedly assaulted the woman near the boat ramp. Police say “testimonies from numerous witnesses” point to him as the youth “seen climbing fences and stumbling around while running along North Shore Drive, most likely causing injuries to himself while running from police”. The youth is expected to be summonsed on charges of recklessly and intentionally causing

injury and making a false report to police.

Cars, cash stolen

Burglars stole two cars, large amount of cash, credit cards, and two handbags containing business papers and spectacles, all valued at almost $29,000, from a Patterson Lakes house, early Thursday 29 September. The 62-year-old owner of the Governor Arthur Drive house said she heard “male voices and a loud bang” about 2.50am but thought it must have been wind slamming the side gate. Thieves broke in through a sliding glass door and stole car keys and handbags from the lounge room. They then entered the garage and stole a white 2004 Honda CRV and a white 2012 Toyota Yaris. The woman woke to see the garage door open, interior light on and an unknown car speeding off. One of the cars was later seen refuelling at a

Camberwell South service station. The driver is described as Caucasian, 18-24 years old, black hair, wearing a grey hoodie, dark tracksuit pants with red print on right leg and black sneakers. Another man was asleep in the front passenger seat.

Couple rescued in bay Water police rescued a couple after their dinghy capsized off Mentone during Sunday’s wild weather. The man, 28, of Mt Waverley, and woman, 26, of Springvale, were spotted clinging to the side of the boat 300 metres offshore. They got into difficulties when they attempted to swim to shore. The Air Wing helped coordinate the rescue at 3.45pm. The couple were taken by ambulance to Sandringham hospital with mild hypothermia. A kayaker also had to be rescued off Mt Eliza and a windsurfer got into trouble at Brighton around the same time.

City Of Kingston Council Elections 2016 preferences

My name is Bob Halsall and I am a candidate in the south ward for the Kingston Council elections.

I have received calls from several candidates and preferenced accordingly, please feel free to vote for your preferred candidate and to give me your second or third preference.

You may not know me but together with my son and daughter we have run “The Mattress Shop” at the Chelsea Market shopping centre for over 10 years. I have learnt a lot about business in that time and we know about the importance of keeping overheads low and giving a high level of service. These are principles I believe could equally be applied to council.
