Fred Hollows award for Carrum pupil A CARRUM Primary School pupil has been recognised for her compassion, integrity and kindness with the awarding of a Fred Hollows Humanity Award. Year 6 pupil Amelia Godino, 12, was nominated for the award by teacher Amanda Carmichael for always thinking of others less fortunate than herself. “Amelia is genuinely concerned with the issues of the world and behaves in a caring and thoughtful manner towards others,” Ms Carmichael said. The Fred Hollows Foundation is a charity that is working towards ending avoidable blindness around the world. The foundation, established by the late Fred Hollows — a humanitarian and eye surgeon — continues his mission and has helped more than 2 million people have their eyesight restored in more than 25 countries. “Fred would have been incredibly proud of the contribution these students are making to society and the foundation for recognising and encouraging them to help others, no matter how big or small their actions,” Fred Hollows Foundation founding director Gabi Hollows said.

Bay rays out of harm’s way Neil Walker A CAMPAIGN to save stingrays in Port Phillip Bay has made authorities act to increase protection for the animals dubbed “the puppies of the sea” by environmentalists. The Labor state government announced last week that recreational fishing rules will be tightened from 7 November to “ensure these beautiful animals are treated with respect”.

An 800-strong Project Banjo action group, led by Safety Beach resident and scuba diver PT Hirschfield, has campaigned for months for state authorities to ban the catching of rays from piers and jetties along the bay (“Cruel end for ‘puppies’ of the sea”, The News 19/4/17). The #RaysAwareness anti-cruelty campaign was triggered by the killing of a smooth ray on Rye pier on 2 April and the unfair demonisation of stingrays in the wake of the tragic death of

wildlife conservationist Steve Irwin from a freak stingray injury to the heart in 2006 off the coast of Queensland’s Port Douglas while diving at Batt Reef. Ms Hirschfield welcomed the decision by the Victorian Fisheries Authority to ban the catching of rays, skates and guitarfish, also known as “banjo sharks”, from within 400 metres of any man-made structure; ban the taking of any ray larger than 1.5 metres in width and lower the fishing

bag limit for all rays, skates and guitarfish from five to one a day. “The campaign was not about demonising fishermen in any way either — it’s all about working towards best practice,” she told The News. “In actual fact, things like the exclusion zone of 400 metres around a manmade structure is a win-win for all water users because when those animals are free to be able to do the job of being ‘vacuum cleaners of the sea’ around man-made structures that creates a

healthier ecosystem to fish from, to dive in and swim in.” Ms Hirschfield acknowledged most anglers do not target rays since the sea creatures are not generally regarded as seafood in Australia but is it good to recognise the rays’ role in helping the underwater environment. “The regulations will be part of a broader campaign of education and enforcement that we hope will be a positive experience for everyone.” Continued Page 2

Continued from Page 1 Beachgoers should not fear stingrays, Ms Hirschfield said. “I think most people who visit the people who visit the beaches already know all beautiful, how curious and how docile those animals are. “It’s really more on social media where you sometimes see people who don’t have the opportunity to encounter how great rays are who have that residual fear. “That fear has come from the passing of Steve Irwin. It kind of put rays in the same light as Steven Spielberg’s Jaws — one event has col-

oured the true perspective.” Ms Hirschfield said most bay residents and visitors love rays and they are a tourism drawcard. Victorian Agriculture Minister Jaala Pulford praised the Project Banjo action group’s campaign to save rays when announcing the VFA decision on 1 November. “We recognise the need to inform beginners and expert anglers alike about the new rules, which is why a dedicated education and enforcement effort will be delivered through spring and summer.” Ms Pulford said VFA officers will

launch Operation Liberty to encourage responsible fishing by anglers. Additional signage will be installed on piers around Port Phillip, Western Port and along Victoria’s coast to make fishers aware of the new rules prohibiting the catching of rays from within 400 metres of any man-made structure. The new regulations are the result of about 1200 submissions to the VFA during a public consultation process. The vast majority of submissions supported greater protection for rays, skates and guitarfish.

Plan to tackle family violence

Selfless service with a smile: Bev Smith has volunteered to help dish out Meals On Wheels food for 50 years and counting. Picture: Supplied

Half century of volunteering for ‘legend’ A KINGSTON legend is celebrating 50 years of volunteering for Meals on Wheels this year. Long-time Moorabbin resident Bev Smith has devoted half a century of volunteering to help make her community a more supportive, caring place to live. “At first I tagged along with a friend of mine who was volunteering, I never dreamed I’d still be here 50 years later,” Mrs Smith said. “But I like people, I like being around them and meeting all kinds of

people and hearing their stories.” Kingston mayor Cr David Eden paid tribute to Bev’s dedication over many years. “Our community would be lost without the hundreds of volunteers working tirelessly all around us,” Cr Eden said. “Bev is a local legend having dedicated 50 years to council’s Meals on Wheels program to make sure our elderly residents receive a good meal and a friendly chat each day. “She has made a remarkable contribution and on behalf of the Kingston

community I thank her for that fantastic effort.” Bev is a strong advocate for volunteering and encouraged others to roll up their sleeves and get involved. “It is good for you, rewarding, you make lots of friends and it is a great connection to the community,” she said. “You get to know the people you are delivering too, the little chats are great. It’s nice to make a connection with people and helping to allow them to live in their home.”



KINGSTON Council is taking a leading role to tackle domestic and family violence in the community. Kingston mayor Cr David Eden said council will launch a family violence working group and roll out a practical action plan to support victims and reduce family violence in our community. “Councils are in a unique position to address this very serious issue at the local level and Kingston Council is committed to taking positive action,” Cr Eden said. The working group will include representatives from Victoria Police, health services, women’s support groups, community representatives and council officers. It will develop the Kingston Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Action Plan to include: n making sure key information is available to the community n training staff and community groups to provide early intervention and assistance n building partnerships with other support services n ensuring family violence prevention is considered a priority in any relevant council policy “We are working to ensure our community is a safe place for all, and this council hopes to leave a lasting legacy when it comes to the reduction of family violence in Kingston,” Cr Eden said.

Bushfire season

SUMMER is nearly here and Kingston Council preparing for action in case of emergency due to bushfires during the peak fire season. Kingston mayor Cr David Eden said

summer posed the greatest emergency risk due to heat waves, bushfires and storms. “Council is working closely with other councils, the MFB, CFA local police and other emergency services to make sure we are ready to respond to any potential summer emergencies,” Cr Eden said. “Throughout the year we put our emergency response teams through their paces with training drills and simulated emergencies to make sure ready to act if an emergency occurs.” Council responded to a number of emergencies in the past 12 months, including two major storm incidents which caused flash flooding across the municipality. “Unfortunately we are facing incredibly dry weather conditions with a heightened risk of bushfires this summer,” Cr Eden said. Council has an audited Emergency Management Policy and Action Plan to respond to key summer emergencies which can include heat waves, bushfires and increased community risk at large-scale summer events. Kingston — together with Greater Dandenong, Frankston and Mornington Peninsula Shire councils — has also received Natural Disaster Resilience Funding to develop tools to help the community prepare for emergency events.

Remembrance Day THE Longbeach RSL Remembrance Day Service will be held outside the Chelsea City Hall, Station St, Chelsea, starting at 10.30am on Saturday 11 November. The service is expected to conclude at 11am.

Drones focus of marine safety push DRONES will be the focus of a state government push to protect marine life in Port Phillip Bay. This comes as Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning officers begin marine mammal patrols to make sure members of the public keep their distance – especially those flying drones. “We’re increasingly noticing more drones appearing on populated beaches,” DELWP wildlife officer Suriya Vij said. “While drones don’t have large motors, many marine mammals are sensitive to noise, and buzzing from their motors can distress them. “There’s also the potential for amateur operators to unintentionally strike the animals. “Though it may be tempting to fly a drone close to these animals for a photo, our message is simple – don’t.” The officers are asking beach goers to behave responsibly so animals aren’t harmed or stressed in their natural environment. Aircraft, including drones, are not allowed to fly within 500 vertical metres or within a 500 metre radius of whales under the Wildlife Marine Mammals Regulations 2009. But drones are becoming a problem. “With the increasing accessibility and use of small and large drones, we’re seeing more of these being flown over marine mammals,” Australian Marine Mammal Foundation director and researcher Dr Kate Charlton-Rob said. The issue has become “so prevalent” that the foundation plans to

Police patrol Shattered glass OFFENDERS shattered the glass front doors of three businesses causing more damage than the thefts would warrant, overnight 2-3 November. A home-renovation business in Chifley Drive, Mentone, was broken into overnight Thursday 2 November by offenders who smashed their way into the office. Nothing was taken. Offenders used a fire hydrant bollard to smash the glass front door of a motor repairer in Chesterville Rd, Moorabbin, 2am, Friday 3 November. They ran off when the alarm sounded. A vacuum cleaner and a carpet shampoo machine were stolen from a home appliance retailer in Parkdale Plaza, 2.53am, Friday 3 November. The thieves forced the door lock to gain entry.

investigate the extent drones are impacting on dolphins in Port Phillip Bay and in the Gippsland Lakes. “Breaches of regulations caused by drones or boats can cause undue stress to these animals [affecting] behaviours like feeding, resting, mother-calf bonding and mating,” Dr Charlton-Rob said. Boats must stay 100 metres from dolphins, except if approached. Beach goers can allow the dolphins to approach them, but must leave them alone otherwise. Jet skis must stay 300 metres away

from dolphins, and, when walking or swimming, members of the public must stay 30 metres from a seal on land, and five metres from seals on structures such as Chinaman’s Hat in the bay. See or call 136 186. Call the Whale and Dolphin Emergency Hotline 1300 136 017 to report a whale or dolphin stranded, entangled or struck by a vessel.

A BURGLAR stole two spray guns and a sander valued at $300 from a house in White St, Mordialloc, overnight Friday 3 November. The man may have entered through an unlocked door. He is described as being in his 20s, 165cm tall, dark hair, beard and wearing a dark coloured jacket and pants.

Rifle found in ute

A STOLEN ute which evaded police on Peninsula Link was later seen in a Seaford service station with a rifle in the tray, early morning Tuesday 31 October. Acting Senior Sergeant Glenn Michie, of Frankston police, said police spotted the yellow Ford ute with false number plates at 12.05am. They ordered the driver to pull over but he sped away and the chase was abandoned. At 3.10am the ute was seen at the service station on the corner of Frankston-Dandenong Rd and Klauer St but, as police approached, the man jumped out and ran off. They searched the car and found a .22 rifle in the back. The man was aged 20-30.

NEWS DESK Crossing confirmed A NEW pedestrian crossing will be built near Patterson Lakes Retirement Village. Victorian Roads and Road Safety Minister Luke Donnellan and Carrum Labor MP Sonya Kilkenny announced on Friday (3 November) that a new crossing will make crossing McLeod Rd safer for retirement village residents and visitors. VicRoads data showed more than 60 people cross McLeod Road at near the retirement village every day. “Many elderly people, enjoying the retirement village, cross the road here and access the bus services and they will be able to do so in a safer environment thanks to this project,” Ms Kilkenny said. “I thank the local residents for their advocacy in helping bring about this important safety initiative.” Retirement village residents had raised concerns about the existing crossing between Snapper Point Drive and Schooner Bay Rd that features a pedestrian “refuge island” in the middle of McLeod Rd. The new crossing will cost about $400,000 to build. Pedestrian operated traffic lights will be built to stop traffic when walkers are crossing the road.

Every dog has its day: Labrador Poppy AKA Santa Paws looks forward to Christmas with owner Kerry Ford. Picture: Gary Sissons

Santa Paws is coming to town CHRISTMAS is just around the corner and pet owners can be photographed with ‘Santa Paws’ and four-legged members of their own family at Petbarn Mentone at 27/29 Nepean Highway on Saturday 18 November and Sunday 19 November, 10am-4pm. Proceeds will be donated to RSPCA Victoria to help ongoing operations to prevent cruelty to animals. RSPCA Victoria CEO Dr Liz Walker said Santa Paws had been a family tradition among pet owners for more than a decade.

“We’ve seen all sorts of families over the years, made up of adults, children and furry, feathered and scaled creatures,” Dr Walker said. “All creatures are welcome, as long as the animals will be comfortable in the setting.” National Petbarn foundation manager Sam Morton said the organisation was delighted to be offering pet owners an opportunity to celebrate the silly season with a fun photograph while raising funds for RSPCA Victoria. “It’s great to grow our adoption

partnership with RSPCA Victoria in this way,” Ms Morton said. A range of Santa Paws photography packages are available for purchase, with more than half of the funds raised going to RSPCA Victoria’s animal welfare work. See or call Petbarn Mentone on 9908 5181 to book a photo session. Photos, taken by a professional photographer, can be printed and collected on the day of photoshoot.

Stroke Rehabilitation inspires Stroke4Stroke JEREMY Naik, a radiographer at the time, was attending a cardiac conference in San Francisco in October 2015. That is when he suffered his first stroke. This is his story: I suffered my first stroke while attending a conference overseas. This happened in my sleep and when my wife woke me in the morning, I was unable to speak and did not recognize my family. I spent four days in hospital and recovered quickly. I was fit to fly back home two weeks later.When we arrived back home I felt really good and no one could believe that I had suffered a stroke Three weeks later I began slurring my speech and making no sense at all. It was then discovered that I had suffered a second stroke. This time it was much worse. I could not put two words together. It was extremely hard time for me and for my family. I was initially admitted to Peninsula Private hospital and then transferred to St John of God Frankston Rehabilitation Hospital (SJGFRH) for intense rehabilitation therapy. This is where I met my speech therapists, Georgia and Jenny. I would see them every day for two weeks. They were extremely kind and patient with me as I found it very frustrating at times. I knew what I wanted to say but the words would just not come out. My background as a radiographer enabled me to understand what they wanted to achieve with me but I could not necessarily understand

what was going on for me. This was a very emotional time for me. There were times when my wife and I would just sit and cry. Physically I have no deficits but the stroke affected my speech and my memory. I am still unable to read. Once discharged from hospital I was then an outpatient. I saw Georgia twice a week. She always gave me homework. I told her “it was harder than going to school or work”. SJGFRH Rehabilitation Physician, Dr Abbott, decided I could no longer return to work and the physiotherapist encouraged me to return to playing golf or to go to the gym. Returning to golf gave me a purpose. A purpose to get up and interact with the other golfers. As a keen golfer, I wanted to combine my personal experience with golf to help other stroke survivors. I want to encourage other stroke survivors and their families to accept their challenges and to keep moving forward. Like golf, my faith was also my saving grace. In my early years, I never went to church. I always joked that I did not go to such “rough places”. Five years ago, I started attending mass with my wife every Sunday this was the beginning of my faith journey. We never questioned “why us” as we knew that this was God’s plan, not just for me but for our family as well. God saw a way to bring my faith and life journeys together. And so, Stroke4Stroke was born - Stroke4Stroke is a nonprofit

Chelsea Mordialloc Mentone News 8 November 2017


Ansett land sale raises concerns Stephen Taylor THE sale of the final parcel of land held by the trustees of the late Sir Reginald Ansett estate in Mt Eliza next month is being described by the selling agents as having potential for “redevelopment and a range of uses”. That potential includes commercial uses, leisure, hospitality, healthcare, education and a clifftop dwelling, the brochure says. While the future development of the 90 Kunyung Rd site is subject to approvals, any subdivision or overuse of the 22.3-hectare site next to the Urban Growth Boundary will generate angst among those determined to preserve its Green Wedge zoning. Ernst and Young, acting for Equity Trustees which oversees the RM Ansett Trust, has organised an expressions-of-interest campaign closing on 13 December for the sale of the property which is expected to reap about $35 million. The company says the sale of the predominantly rural land would allow the proceeds to be reinvested into income-producing assets earning the trustees a higher return for their charitable works. The parcel of land is held in four separate titles. The agents say one option is for the buyer of the entire block to realign the boundaries so that the existing large parcel and three separate 500 square metre blocks could be more equitably divided into four blocks of fiveand-a-half hectares each. This would leave the Green Wedge intact, they say.

Truly Stunning Landmark Waterfront Property

Mornington Peninsula Landholding

The Ansett Estate Mount Eliza

90 Kunyung Road, Mount Eliza, Victoria Expressions of Interest Close Wednesday 13 December 2017

Let’s go to work: Sir Reginald Ansett at his Mt Eliza property now for sale, above.

Equity Trustees managing director Mick O’Brien said: “Through the sale process we plan to release the value in the land and invest it back into the community. It is our responsibility as trustee to act according to Sir Reginald’s philanthropic intent, and to deliver the best outcome for his trust.” The block has unobstructed Port Phillip Bay views, 100 metres of beach frontage and backs onto Kunyung Rd and Albatross Avenue at the rear. The 22.3-hectare block is a separate tranche to the 11.7-hectare Gunyong Valley estate bought from the estate of the late Mrs Joan Ansett by retirement village owner Chas Jacobsen for $14.5 million in 2006. Mornington Peninsula Shire has quashed any potential residential redevelopment plans. The shire’s planning services execu-

tive manager David Bergin said the site could be used for a range of different uses, subject to planning permit approval, including a school, place of worship, single dwelling, caravan park, plant nursery or “a range of other similar uses”. “You could use the land for agriculture without a planning permit and a few other land uses, subject to meeting strict conditions,” he said. Mt Eliza Association for Environmental Care president Des Berry confirmed the land could not be subdivided for residential development. “It is in the Green Wedge and any prospective buyers should carefully check the legal ramifications of any possible subdivision,” he said. “We are an environment group and our aim is to protect the area’s significant native vegetation, especially along

the foreshore.” Mr Berry said his group doubted the land’s existing boundaries could be “realigned” as stated in the Ernst and Young brochure. “We would fight any redevelopment,” he said. Across Kunyung Rd, Ryman Health Care last year paid close to $40 million for the 8.9-hectare Moondah Estate. That waterfront property with a 42-room mansion built in 1888 was bought from the University of Melbourne, which still has six months left on a lease to run it as a business school. A covenant restricts the Moondah Estate’s use to aged care, education, religious or primary production. It has a historic gatehouse, servants’ quarters, conference, training, meeting and office spaces and four dining areas.

Sale ‘poses new threat to wedge’

MORNINGTON MP David Morris said the proposed sale of the Ansett land meant the Mt Eliza Green Wedge was “once again under threat”. “It is difficult to see how some of the potential uses proposed for the site could be undertaken without either a change to the Urban Growth Boundary, or a substantial redrafting of the Planning Statement and the Green Wedge Zone, or both,” he said. “I wish to place on record my total opposition, and that of the state opposition, to any change in the long-standing urban boundary south of Mt Eliza. “The boundary has been in place for decades, and it has been understood by successive generations of peninsula residents that the location is permanent. “I will not support movement of the boundary or a weakening of the Green Wedge Zone, under any circumstances.” Mr Morris said the zoning was intended, among other things, to “protect the character of open rural and scenic non-urban landscapes”. “While some of the potential uses identified may be permitted under the planning scheme, they are usually required to be undertaken with agriculture or as part of a vineyard, not as a standalone use,” he said. “The Mornington Peninsula Localised Planning Statement, introduced by the Napthine government in 2014, and still state policy, includes an objective intended to protect the peninsula’s landscape and cultural values.”

Illegal log carting results in fine Compiled by Brodie Cowburn THE following cases were disposed of at the Frankston Court of Petty Sessions on Monday last, before Mr Cohen, P.M, and Messrs Williams, Oates, Grant and Mc Lean. McGrath was charged with having neglected to send his child to school the required number of days and was fined 2s. M. Parker for a similar offence was fined 5s. A. E. Ryan was fined 4s in each case for non-vaccination of two children. John Knight was charged by John. E. Jones (shire secretary) with carting pine logs over roads in the centre Riding on dates within the time during which pine log carting was prohibited by the Shire. The defendant pleaded guilty to three charges and was fined 23s 6d on the first two and 29s for the third. A number of persons were fined in sums varying from 1s to 5s for omitting to have their names placed on the electors’ roll. *** NEWS has been received that Captain Claude P. Russell, of the Indian Frontier Mounted Police, has been awarded the Victoria Cross for conspicuous bravery in France. Captain Russell, who had at the outbreak of the present war already gained four medals for service in previous campaigns in India and South Africa, volunteered for service in France when war was declared.

He is now in hospital, severely wounded. *** MR S. S. Gault will hold a special horse sale at his Somerville yard on Monday next when a good yard of all description of horses will be yarded. *** ON Thursday next the elections for representatives in the State Parliament will take place throughout Victoria. In the Mornington electorate Mr Downward (the old member) is opposed by Mr R. M. Anderson, the selected Liberal candidate. The latter gentleman has spoken at the principal places throughout the electorate, and created a very favorable impression. It is generally thought that he will get good support on polling day. *** A RUG, made and presented to the Red Cross Society by Mrs Hague, is or view in the window of Mr Guumes. This beautiful piece of work, whichtook six months to make, is to be raffled shortly. *** MR and Mrs McSweeney and family desire to express their heartfelt thanks to their many friends of Frankston for kindness shown to them while their son Bert was so very ill, especially to Dr Maxwell for his unremitting care and attention.

*** MR Downward addressed the electors in the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall on Friday night. The Candidate said this was the most important election ever held in Victoria. Owing to its financial position the State was not far from financial blizzard. This State was not alone in the ordeal. All the States had a difficult row owing to the outcome of federation. The States were now indebted to the Federal Government for £20,000,000, and had agreed to pay this back at the end of the present year. It was absolutely impossible to do so. *** THERE was a good attendance at the Red Cross social at Tyabb last Saturday night and a very nice evening was spent. Mr Phillip Mair as M.C. kept the dances going and splendid music was supplied for same by Messrs Gibson Chalwell and Mr Baker junr of Somerville who took a turn at the piano when not dancing and played excellent music (he can come again if he likes.) *** ON November 30th the Miniature Picture Campaign in aid of St. Vincents Hospital, Melbourne will cease. This Campaign was inaugurated in order to raise £25,000 which is urgently needed by the hospital. It is an appeal for help for those who cannot help themselves. Although this campaign has been

in progress for some months, some people are still in doubt as to what it exactly means. *** A BULLETIN on the Evaporation of Apples has just been issued by the Department of Agriculture. It consists mainly of portion of a pamphlet issued by the State College of Washington Agricultural Experimental Station and a reprint from the Journal of Agriculture of a short article on Apple Drying by Mr Farrell one of the Orchard Supervisors of the Department of Agriculture. In view of the heavy apple crop expected next season and as very little of it can be exported this bulletin will no doubt be of practical use to Orchardists *** HELEN Mathers wonderful story “Comin’ thro’ the Rye” of self renunciation will be screened at Frankston, Wednesday, Nov 14th. It attracted the largest audience in Melbourne ever drawn to a picture house, and has been shown through out the suburbs with great success. *** THE secretary of the Wattle Club acknowledges with thanks, a donation of £1 1s from Mrs Manu, “Harbury”Frankston. *** THIS afternoon the ceremony of unveiling a Roll of Honor will take place at the Mount Eliza State School. Sir John Madden will perform the ceremony.

A cordial invitation is given to the residents to be present by the chairman (Mr Jas Grice). The function being commenced at 3 oclock. *** READERS are reminded of the Novety night which is to take place on Friday, November 9th, in the Hall, to raise funds to provide Xmas Cheer for the boys at Langwarrin Camp. A very bright evening’s entertainment has been arranged and it is expected that everybody will come along and participate. Among numerous other attractions the orchestra from Langwarrin will be in attendance. *** LETTER TO THE EDITOR: In 1910, 154,031 were employed in farming in 1916 their number had decreased to 147,655 whilst the population of Melbourne has increased in 11 years by 178,514. What do our time serving and place hunting politicians care about these things? Not a jot. They proceed merrily with their mad extravagance. The greatest benevolent asylum in the country is the State Parliament House, where mediocrites, and persons who have out lived their usefulness practise. F. M. LINLEY, Mornington. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 10 November 1917

Kangas show they’re real deal PROVINCIAL

By IT Gully LANGWARRIN has announced itself as a true contender for the MPCA Provincial title after beating Peninsula Old Boys on Saturday. Defending 9/216 going into the second day of the clash at Lloyd Park, the Kangas celebrated early when the dangerous Dylan O’Malley was the first man to go without a run being scored by the Old Boys. Old Boys’ skipper Wade Pelzer and Glen Prendergast dug-in and got the score past 50 before things started to

turn pair-shaped for the ladder leaders. Matt Prosser, who has been in superb form with the bat but not so much with the ball this season for the Kangas, regained his leg-spin mojo and took ownership of the Old Boys’ batting line-up, snatching 5/36 from 15.1 overs. The Old Boys went from being 1/56 to 6/79. Prosser was well supported by Matt Campbell, who helped himself to 2/22 while Langy skipper Jake Prosser picked-up 2/3 from eight overs. Mornington cruised past Pearce-

dale, winning by more than 130 runs. Pearcedale resumed on Saturday at 0/12, however, had a lot of work to do to get to the 4/298 that Mornington posted on day one of the match. Brad Trotter (73) and Chris Dew (25) got the Panthers away to a reasonable start and there was no momentum lost when Will Kennedy (34) came to the crease at three. The Dales cruised past 100 with just one wicket lost. However, the Dogs were able to regain the ascendancy, snaring 3/2 to have the Panthers in a sport of trouble at 4/115.

It was pretty much all over at that point, although they did scramble to 167. Michael Heib was superb with five wickets for the Doggies while Matt Foon started the ball rolling with three early wickets. Baxter pulled-off a sensational win against Sorrento, successfully defending its ordinary total of 133. The Sharks were well and truly in the box seat at the beginning of the second day, resuming at 1/47, less than 90 runs to get with 80 overs and nine wickets in hand. Enter Baxter boom recruit Yohan

Maddege, who tore through the Sorrento batting line-up and finished with match-winning figures of 6/61 from 30 overs. Roommate Chamika Sattambi snared 3/19 from 10 overs. Whilst Maddege did the damage at the top of the order, Sattambi cleanedup the tale, rolling Sorrento for 127. Mt Eliza had little trouble running down Crib Point, who had made just 123. Resuming at 1/8, Mt Eliza cruised to 4/125 from 66 overs before the game as called. Keith Beggs top scored for the Mounties with an unbeaten 33 while Justin Grant was also unbeaten on 28.

Main Ridge fall over PENINSULA

By IT Gully MAIN Ridge was completely embarrassed in its MPCA Peninsula match on Saturday, smashed by Pines by more than 150 runs. Cruising at the top of the table after the first three rounds, Main Ridge was set 235 for victory after the Piners were bowled out for 234. The Ridge never looked like winning, losing wickets from the outset with Nick Wilcox, Pat Jackson and Alex Coad all getting amongst the wickets for the Piners. Coad played arguably his best game for Pines, again realising his substantial potential and finishing with 4/27 from 14 overs. Harley Parker was also in the game, bowling just two overs and snaring 2/6. Shaun Foster top scored for the Ridge with 33, while skipper Nick Jewell was next best with 13. Long Island had a lot of work to do on the second day of its match against Somerville. A total of 13 wickets fell on the opening day of the clash with Somerville bowled out for 136 and Long Island finishing the day at 3/46. Pubudu Edirisinghe (69) and Michael Burke (51) were the not out batsmen when play resumed on Saturday at Ballam Park. When Burke became the first wicket of the day, the Islanders had won the match and were eight runs ahead (4/144). Stuart Swift (24) and Andrew Tweddle (32) then made a contribu-

tion to help the Islanders to 245, a comprehensive 109-run victory. Red Hill continued its recent domination of Delacombe Park, rolling the home side by three wickets. There is no love lost between these two sides after a fiery grand final last season and the Hillmen would have been tickled pink to put the Parkers to the sword yet again. The Parkers were always up against it though, defending just 137. Matt Merifield opened with 40 and Simon Dart scored 38 to steer the Hillmen to victory. Tim Collett added 24. Dean Blight was the pick of the Parkers’ bowlers with 3/56. Red Hill scored 7/148 in 64 overs. Moorooduc got the job done against Flinders, winning by almost 100 runs. The Ducs had put 192 on the board on day one and had Flinders 1/14 overnight. New recruit Pathum De Mel was the destroyer for the Ducs, bowling 16 overs and finishing with 7/35, including five maidens. Justin McLeary opened the bowling also and finished with 2/31 from 14 overs. The evergreen Kenny Cremen picked-up the other wicket. Flinders was rolled for just 106.

Seaford pulls off a big win DISTRICT

By IT Gully SEAFORD has pulled off one of its best wins in recent times, picking up a reverse outright against Baden Powell in MPCA District cricket. When play resumed on Saturday, Seaford was 2/27, chasing Baden Powell’s first innings of 189. There were early celebrations for the Braves, ripping through Seaford’s batting line-up for just 98. Seaford skipper Ryan McQueen top scored with half of the entire score, hit-

ting 49, while Shaun Allardyce hit 15. Braves’ skipper Craig Entwhistle was the pick of the bowlers with 4/17 while Nathan Rice snared 3/33. With first innings points locked away and a 91-run lead, Baden Powell went back out into the middle. Problem was, it lasted just 21 overs, bowled out for 70. Dale Christie snared 6/18 for Seaford. With 151 runs to get and operating against the overs’ clock, Seaford needed someone to ‘go off’ with the bat to get their side over the line. Enter Dean Polson. Seaford lost

some early wickets before Polson strode to the crease. He hammered 84 in just over 15 overs to help his side score 7/162 and pick-up the unlikely reverse outright. At the end of the first day of the Hastings v Rye clash, the Blues were in the box seat, defending 177 and having Rye on the ropes at 3/27. By the end of the second day, the Demons’ Tim Symons (58) and Clayton Barnes (34) set up the visitors’ victory. However, the work wasn’t done. It needed a wagging tale to get the job done. Josh Gana (26), Todd Harnett

(21), Andrew Dunn (25) and Dean Collins (10) were the final four batsmen for the Demons and steered their side to victory, finishing on 222. Ryan McNamara was the best of the Hastings’ bowlers with 4/75 from 24 overs. Mt Martha made light work of Seaford Tigers, winning by more than 100 runs. Resuming at 1/38 and chasing 117 for victory, Mt Martha middle-order bat Brett Wilkinson finished unbeaten on 59 to drive the Reds to victory. Elliott Lord opened with 32 and Max

McKenzie finished with 35. Tigers’ skipper Dave James was the pick of the bowlers with 4/37 from 18.3 overs. Rosebud was smashed by Heatherhill. Chasing 307 for victory, the Buds were rolled for 166, Jason Nagel top scoring with 58. Jake Theobald was superb for the Hills with 6/56 off 34 overs, including 12 maidens. Jason Hinde was also good with the rock, snaring 3/25 from 11.3 overs.

Pandas have dip but fall short SUB-DISTRICT

By IT Gully BONEO failed in its attempt to pick up a reverse outright win against Carrum Downs in MPCA Sub District cricket. The game was set up for an enthralling second day with the game poised with Carrum Downs just six runs ahead with five wickets in hand. Boneo was rolled for 73 in its first innings and Carrum Downs was resuming at 5/79. The Pandas achieved exactly what

they were after at the beginning of the second day, taking five Carrum Downs wickets for just 20 runs, rolling the Cougars for 99. Trailing by just 26 runs, Boneo needed at least 160-170 on the board in its second innings to have a total to defend. They were bowled out for 137, giving them a second-innings lead of just 111. The Cougars started well, set a foundation and cruised to victory five wickets down, finishing at 5/115. Leon McConnell top scored with 37. Balnarring had no trouble against

Frankston YCW, despite half-centuries to Jo Gott (50) and Jason Bedford (51). Defending 257, the Saints rolled the Stonecats for 198. Balnarring skipper Mal Coutts was at his best with the ball, snaring 4/34 from 21 overs, while Mitch Kleinig picked-up 3/33. Tyabb tasted victory against Skye. Skye kicked-off the second day of the match defending 142 and having Tyabb 1/21 overnight. However, the Yabbies cruised to victory six wickets down, James

Holland-Burch scoring 56 and Aidan Pateman scoring 50. Tootgarook had no issues against Carrum, winning comfortably. The Frogs trailed by just 80 runs heading into the second day and had an outright win on offer. Tootgarook declared at 3/158 after batting just 41 overs on the second day and threw Carrum back in to bat. The Frogs went so close to winning, however, fell agonisingly one wicket short. Carrum finished at 9/49, still seven runs behind.

Dromana was able to do what was expected and pick-up victory against Ballam Park, however, it wasn’t easy. The Tigers resumed at 3/15, chasing 136. That scoreline became 4/41, then 5/49 and 6/58 before Zac Klan (39) and Sam Fowler (49) took the Hoppers to victory. Dromana finished all out for 176, 40 runs ahead. Stuart Plunkett was the best of the Knights’ bowlers with 5/58 from 32 overs.

UK trio for Strikers, Cairns trio for Langy SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie OSCAR Marsden, Ryan Thompson and Zach Reynolds are expected to arrive in Melbourne next year to join the Andy O’Dell revolution at Peninsula Strikers. Marsden and Thompson are due here on 10 January while Reynolds may not arrive until late February. The recently relegated Centenary Park club plans to bounce straight back into State 2 and O’Dell has been tasked with effecting a major overhaul of the senior squad. The three English imports are an integral part of his plans. Forwards Thompson and Marsden play with Brigg Town in England’s Northern Counties East League Division One. Ex-Mornington striker Ryan Paczkowski and wide midfielder Nathan Smith are former Brigg Town players. Although Thompson is only 21 he is the longest-serving player in Brigg Town’s senior squad and in 2015/16 was the manager’s player of the year and the players’ player of the year. Marsden is 20 and his previous clubs are North Cave, Sculcoates Amateurs and Pocklington Town. Reynolds is a 24-year-old left or right wide midfielder who is with Southern League Premier Division outfit Chesham United. His previous clubs are Crawley Town, Aylesbury United, Dunstable Town, Arlesey Town and Hemel Hempstead Town. O’Dell is worried that other clubs will try and poach Reynolds hence his arrival much later than his new teammates. The Strikers’ gaffer is also wary of NPL clubs chasing another one of his visa targets, a 24-year-old former Sheffield United striker who is already in Melbourne and who is set for talks with O’Dell this week. Strikers have also agreed terms with three players from State 2 North-West champion Altona City, O’Dell’s previous club. Defenders Hayden Beasley, 31, and James Neighbour, 27, were mainstays in Altona City’s titlewinning side. Beasley is a former Altona Magic and Brunswick City player while Neighbour has captained Clifton Hill and also had a stint with Altona Magic. Neighbour won Altona City’s 2017 best and fairest and players’ player of the year awards. Lucas Wootton, 26, is an attacking midfielder who previously played with Brunswick City and is the third Altona City player to head over the Westgate.


Strikers’ signings: Brigg Town forwards Oscar Marsden, left, and Ryan Thompson have agreed terms with Peninsula Strikers.

Strikers have also agreed terms with utility Marcus Slimane, 27, a former Altona City player who played at State 1 level with Caulfield United Cobras this year. Former Scottish professional Jamie Paterson has joined Strikers’ coaching staff. Paterson played with Falkirk, Scunthorpe, Halifax Town and Doncaster Rovers in the UK as well as Dandenong Thunder and Mornington. At this stage, the only Strikers players from last season to have agreed terms are goalkeeper Colin McCormack, striker Aziz Bayeh and midfielder Danny Brooks. Central defender Raphael Stulz has trialled with South Melbourne and was rumoured to be in Mornington’s sights but the Dallas Brooks Park outfit has denied any interest. “I’d like to see him (Stulz) stay and he’ll be an even better player with better players around him,” said O’Dell, who plans to talk to Stulz this week. Strikers have lost midfielder Sam Scott to Mornington and are keen to talk to former player and current Mornington midfielder Craig Smart. However, Mornington senior coach Adam Jamieson is due to hold talks with Smart and is confident of retaining the Scotsman and has added two NPL players to the squad chasing next year’s State 1 SouthEast title. “I can’t give you their names right now because they need to

Chelsea Mordialloc Mentone News 8 November 2017

contact their clubs and tell them that they’ve signed with us but they are both very good players and we’re delighted to have signed them,” said Jamieson. It’s a fair hike from the far north of Queensland to Lawton Park but that has not stopped three teenagers from Cairns accepting offers to join Langwarrin’s new under-20s squad. Langy’s trying hard to keep a lid on it but that’s a big ask after you’ve beaten Croatian-backed Sydney United and Victorian clubs Box Hill United, Dandenong Thunder and Altona Magic to the punch. Brothers Cody and Ayden Eszes and their mate Josh Mulla impressed all onlookers during recent under-20 trials. All three have come through the ranks at Leichhardt Lions FC in the FNQ Premier League and have played regularly at senior and reserves levels. Mulla and Ayden Eszes are both 19 and can play as central defenders or as strikers. Cody Eszes, 17, is a midfielder or forward who played for Queensland at the national schoolboys championships. He was voted Queensland’s player of the tournament and attracted the attention of scouts from high-profile clubs. He has been selected in the Australian schoolboys side to tour the UK in January. Ayden and Cody are the sons of former Hungarian youth interna-

tional Jimmy Eszes. “All three are technically very good, big, strong and quick and with hard work and application I wouldn’t be surprised if all three were pushing for a senior gig at some stage of next season,” said Langwarrin under-20s head coach Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor. Skye United is holding trials for its State 1 women’s team on Sunday 19 November and Sunday 26 November starting at 10.30am at Skye Recreation Reserve in Ballarto Road. The club invites triallists as young as 14 and Skye is recognised for providing a genuine pathway to senior soccer. For further details contact Steve Babbage on 0418 632 121 or email Somerville Eagles are on the hunt for senior and reserve coaches and director of coaching Zach Pedersen is the go-to man for prospective candidates. “Our preference is for a senior coach who can bring in a couple of experienced players to show the younger players what it takes,” said Pedersen. “We’ve got a lot of talented young players but most of them have not played much senior soccer. “We’re hoping to hire a developmental coach for the reserves.” Pedersen can be contacted on 0400 026 912 or via email at zach@ Local women’s NPL club Southern

United last week announced the appointment of Graham Dudley as operations manager and technical director. Dudley holds an AFC B coaching licence and arrived in Melbourne from England 11 years ago. He has coached at Carrum United (now Skye United) where he initiated a senior women’s program, assisted Ian Williamson at Casey Comets in the Women’s Premier League, coached at Southern Blue Tongues and is a former director of football at Beaumaris. Dudley was Bayside United’s technical director and the club’s inaugural senior coach. He is the founder and CEO of Global Performance Testing International Limited which provides state-of-the-art sport testing and comprehensive packages to train coaches in reliable and accurate data gathering and assessment. “Our immediate aim at Southern United is to grow the brand and reestablish what the women’s NPL is all about,” said Dudley. “We will specialise in weakness identification and coaching and development strategies and we aim to create the most professional environment possible. “Our coaches will coach as a team and won’t be confined to their roles within their individual groups.” Southern has appointed John Meades as head coach of the under12s and is set to announce its new under-16s head coach.


Pro boxer empowers the vulnerable By Ben Triandafillou TAKING up boxing to protect himself and his family at the young age of 12, professional welterweight boxer Adam Kaoullas is now giving back to the sport by empowering the vulnerable. Now aged 23, and heading into his fourth professional fight on Friday (10 November), Kaoullas has been teaching young junior boxers and adults self-defence through boxing. Currently coaching upwards of 200 boxers across three separate gyms, Kaoullas says coaching the young kids and building their confidence is definitely the most rewarding class he runs. “Boxing kept me on the right path as I used it as an outlet to keep fit, happy and healthy when I was younger, and now the fact that I can give this to the kids is very rewarding,” he said. “When you see the kids come in you’d think that the aggressive ones will be the ones who enjoy it the most but it’s really the kids who are the most timid who benefit the most as they feel empowered knowing they can defend themselves. “I have never allowed any type of violence other than self-defence for the kids. If I hear someone doing it outside the gym without it being the last resort then you can’t come back here.” Kaoullas coaches regularly at Crunch Fitness, Mentone and Fit2Box, Moorabbin but it’s at the Pure Combat Centre, Rosebud where he has started to teach the youth.

“I’ve always loved teaching boxing to females and kids as they are sometimes the ones who are vulnerable,” he said. “I grew up with four women including my mother and a younger brother so I’ve always wanted to protect my family and now others.” Kaoullas has been teaching children aged between four and 10-years-old at the Pure Combat Centre for the last year and began a teenager’s class last month for juniors aged between 10 and 15 years old. “We have only been running the teenager’s class for the last four to five weeks but they have picked it up amazingly,” Kaoullas said.

“They have been able to pick it up a lot quicker and we’ve been having an even mix of boys and girls turn up which is great to see.” “We focus more on technique and their boxing with the teenagers, while we do 30 minutes on technique, 15 minutes of drills and 15 minutes of games with the younger kids.” Under the guidance of Australia’s current top rank middleweight, Sam “King” Soliman, and secondary coach, Steve Kerr, Kaoullas said he has tried to replicate a lot from what he has learnt from his own coaches. “Sam Soliman took me under his wing when I was about 16 and Steve Kerr has been like a father figure to

me,” Kaoullas said. “I’ve tried to absorb as much as I can from what my coaches have taught me. “I have taken many fundamentals and drills, different techniques and moves from them to help my members and clients improve like I have.” Undertaking a professional boxing career of his own, Kaoullas had his first fight in October last year and earned his first title win earlier this year. At his last fight on Friday 21 July, Kaoullas defeated Natthapon Chalotorn by knockout in the opening round at the Malvern Town Hall to earn the Australasian Nitro title.

In preparation for his next fight on Friday night, Kaoullas has turned what was originally a holiday in Hawaii into a training camp. “I have been training twice a day and the sparring is giving me a great workout,” he said. “When you’re at home you need to focus on so many other things as well as training on top of that. “It’s worked out pretty well as I have had a clear head combining the holiday with training. “ Kaoullas will face Dillon Bargero in his fourth career fight at the Malvern Town Hall as he continues to strive for an Australian title in the welterweight division.

Sutton cycles to success By Ben Triandafillou UP AND COMING Mt Martha cyclist Sophie Sutton has won the Mountain Bike Series at the Victorian Schools Cycling Championships for the fifth consecutive year. The year 7 student represented Padua College in both the mountain biking and road cycling state finals in Bendigo over the weekend of Friday 20 October. Sophie ended her fourth and final round of the under-15s Female Mountain Bike Series in second place, leaving her in equal first position on aggregate points for the series. Sophie, a member of the Red Hill Mountain Bike Club, tied with another junior from the club, Millie Chester, who represented Frankston High School.

Sophie then went on to finish runnersup in the under-15s Female Road Racing state final on the Saturday. Kelly Sutton, Sophie’s mother, said cycling has become her life since she started mountain bike riding in 2013. “She loves mountain biking, going on the jumps and getting dirty,” she said. “She’s been hooked ever since she went with her father to a local event that they had on at the Red Hill Mountain Bike Club. “She said ‘I want to do this’ and has continued to go from strength to strength.” Sophie is now competing in the second round of the National Junior Track Series (velodrome) in Sydney over the long weekend. In the opening round of the series,

Sophie finished in fifth place at the twoday event which was held in Darebin, Victoria last month. “We were blown away by how well she did at the event as there were kids coming from everywhere to compete in it,” Kelly said. “She has only recently started competing in the velodrome races so she’s done a great job to finish so well. “She was getting a lot of help from the Mornington Cycling Club and now the Blackburn Cycling Club is helping her, so she’s got a lot of support behind her.” Sophie has two more races in the series over the coming months which will see her head to Brisbane and then to Adelaide.
