THINGS OF STONE AND WOOD DEC 15 with special guests Thomas Hugh & Shannon Bourne Twenty-seven years ago a rag-tag bunch of folkies got together and formed a band called Things of Stone & Wood that went on to define Melbourne in the early 90s. Off the back of their top 10 single ‘Happy Birthday Helen’, the band achieved national success, international tours, a gold album ‘The Yearning’ and even a Late Show parody, kicking off a career that would place them as one of Australia’s most loved Folk-Rock bands. Their live show has always been full of energy and passion and whilst they’ve won many an industry award, including an ARIA and APRA Songwriter of the Year, it’s on stage that demonstrates why they’re so loved. Things Of Stone & Wood play the Grand Hotel as part as one of only two VIC appearances, and with no Melbourne date this’ll be bound to be packed and vibing big time. DATE: 15 December [DOORS 8PM] TICKETS: $35* grand.oztix.com.au

Pools still shut down No fix yet for PARC plumbing problem Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au A PLUMBING problem continues to plague the two main swimming pools at the Peninsula Aquatic Recreation Centre. The PARC’s main 50-metre pool, aquatic playground and a learn-toswim pool have been closed for more than a month after a plumbing system malfunction. Leisure centre management initially predicted the pools would reopen by 27 October but the plumbing problem seems to be more complex than first thought. “Following a critical failure of the complex plumbing infrastructure within the 50m pool balance tank at PARC, specialist independent consultants have been engaged to assess the cause and to redesign the infrastructure to ensure such an issue does not occur again,” Peninsula Leisure CEO Tim Gledhill said last week. “Peninsula Leisure is working closely with Frankston City Council on this matter. We are currently waiting to receive the final assessment report before repair works can commence. “Until the report is received and the substantial works commence, we are unable to confirm when we will reopen.” The gym, wellness centre and other fitness operations remain open to the public. Peninsula Leisure Pty Ltd was established in 2012 and is wholly

owned by Frankston Council. The company manages and operates the PARC and the Pines Forest Aquatic Centre in Frankston North. Councillors voted to reappoint Peninsula Leisure chair Roseanne Healy and board member Phillip Johnson, also the chief financial officer of South East Water, last month until October 2020 (“Another lap for swim directors”, The Times 23/10/17). Five Peninsula Leisure board members are collectively paid about $116,000 a year. PARC won the statewide Aquatic Recreation Victoria Facility Management Award last year. Council statistics show about 850,000 people visit the sports, swimming and recreation centre each year. Councillors voted in May to stop Peninsula Leisure “tendering for projects outside of their core obligation, that being the management of PARC and the Pines pool”. It emerged that Peninsula Leisure had talks with Mornington Peninsula Shire council about possibly managing peninsula sports centres. The shire announced in August that the management of five of its leisure centres has been outsourced to private operator Belgravia Leisure from 29 October. Mr Gledhill said Peninsula Leisure will keep PARC members up to date with the progress of the plumbling solution.

Care all year round from calendar SALES of a calendar showcasing illustrations by Frankston area preschool and primary school pupils will raise money for projects helping vulnerable children. The Awesome Kids Family Calendar was officially launched at Frankston Arts Centre last Thursday (9 November) by Anglicare Victoria. Funds raised will go towards a community chest for community projects. Anglicare Victoria’s communities for children program manager Cathie Valentine said “the amazing artists’ tales” in the 2018 calendar could make a great Christmas stocking filler that also helps a good cause. “The calendar aims to foster fun and positive learning. It is a useful resource

for families and children that assists them with organising family life, with its colourful and plain language design,” she said. “It promotes relationships with local schools and kindergartens as the hubs of school and community life and provides us with an opportunity to hear and learn about the things that are important to children. “Most importantly though, is the opportunity to gather the thoughts and ideas of children about the world they live in, and the type of world they aspire to create. We have a great deal to learn from them and the calendar continues to capture the interest of the broader community in their vision for the present and future.”

The Awesome Kids Family Calendar is released in partnership with Atchison Consultants and Wilkinson Publishing and is available for $19.99 throughout Victoria in store and at booktopia.com. au online. The calendar is a collaboration between Communities for Children Frankston, Anglicare Victoria and primary schools and kindergartens including Aldercourt Primary School, Mahogany Rise Primary School, Karingal Primary School, Ballam Park Primary School, Naranga School, Banyan Fields Primary School, Banyan Fields Kindergarten, Seaford Primary School, Kingsley Park Primary School and Ballam Park Preschool.

POLICE breath-tested about 14,000 drivers in the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula Shire council areas over the Melbourne Cup long weekend with 28 being found to be either drink-ordrug driving. Another 315 traffic offences were detected, but only two serious injury collisions were recorded, which police said was pleasing “considering the amount of traffic that flowed through the area”. A 46-year-old Mt Eliza woman was allegedly driving at 107 kph in an 80kph zone when Somerville Highway Patrol intercepted her on Nepean Highway, Mornington, 2am, Wednesday 8 November. She blew 0.117 per cent and lost her licence on the spot for 11 months and received $1110 in fines. The woman said she had been drinking at a function all day, and thought she might be over the limit but drove anyway as she “needed to get home”. Her weekend could have been a lot

worse if she had been involved in a collision and killed or seriously injured herself or someone else, police said.

Arrest after assault

A FRANKSTON man has been arrested after an 87-year-old woman was allegedly sexually assaulted at Aspendale station, Friday 22 September. The 40-year-old man was charged with sexual assault by Transit Unit detectives. The woman, holding a walking frame, was waiting at the station on Nepean Highway about 11.25am when a man called out to her and asked if she wanted money. He then approached the woman and kissed her on the cheek before allegedly sexually assaulting her. The woman broke free and boarded the train. It is believed the man boarded a Frankston-bound train and got off at Carrum about midday. He has been bailed to appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court, Friday 15 December.

‘Unemployed workers’ united Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au A UNION for the unemployed may seem like a contradiction in terms but that’s exactly what an organisation setting up shop in Frankston is all about. Australian Unemployed Workers’ Union volunteers will host fortnightly meetings at Frankston Arts Centre to help people on the dole negotiate the welfare system and know their rights when dealing with Centrelink and job agencies. “Our mission at the Australian Unemployed Workers’ Union is to fight for the basic human rights of unemployed Australians, most of whom are living in poverty,” the group’s mission state-

ment says. “We are fighting back against Australia’s unfair welfare system. It was recently revealed that the basic Newstart payment is only half of what Australians need to live out of poverty.” Frankston co-organiser Paul Callanan said the Frankston branch of the AUWU is open to people “from Portsea to Mentone and Crib Point to Cranbourne” and it is free to join. “It makes sense to have a Frankston branch taking in all those areas,” he said. The organisation “run for the unemployed by the unemployed” is not a registered union and is an incorporated association, according to Consumer Affairs Victoria records. The group’s website declares “official endorsements from National Union of Workers (NUW) and the Electrical

Trades Union (ETU)”. Federal Liberal Employment Minister Michaelia Cash slammed the AUWU in June, saying the group’s “sole purpose appears to be keeping members out of gainful employment and encouraging them to shirk their responsibilities.” Mr Callanan — a former taxi driver, multi-storey plumber and employee of the Cain government era Victorian Economic Development Corporation — said he is helping the AUWU with spreading the word about the nascent Frankston branch online. The AUWU is calling on all Centrelink payments to be increased to $517 a week; work for the dole programs to be abolished and the axing of privately owned job agencies in favour or reinstating the Commonwealth Employment

Service to get the unemployed back to work. AUWU Frankston branch convener Fae Roth, a Hastings resident and former factory company director, said she got involved in helping the organisation after hearing about its work on community radio station 3CR. “I don’t think the general public realises how tough some people are doing it,” she said. “Unemployment, redundancies and job losses are affecting people directly more than anything else I can think of in horrific ways.” She said the factory she worked at for many years was eventually forced to shut its doors due to cheap overseas imports. The group opposes mandatory drug testing for the unemployed, increased

waiting times for the dole and “the completely unjustified expansion of cashless welfare” featuring debit cards for those receiving welfare payments. An editorial in the September edition of its Fightback! newsletter states: “With the Australian Labor Party and a number on the cross bench failing to commit to voting one way or the other on a number of issues, it’s up to us to let them know why they should oppose these punitive measures”. “I’m hoping our Frankston branch will be the prototype and role model that will inspire AUWU branches to open up all over Melbourne,” Ms Roth said. “It’s just so extreme what the parliamentarians get compared to how the unemployed are treated.”

New home and hosed: Volunteer Camille Pola gets to grips with firefighting training at the CFA Skye brigade’s training base. Picture: Supplied

Female first in decade at CFA Skye A NEWCOMER to the Skye community has got stuck right into helping fellow residents by volunteering for the local Country Fire Authority brigade. Camille Pola recently moved from Warrnambool to the Frankston suburb and was inspired to volunteer to learn new skills and pitch in to the community. The 26-year-old financial planner is the first woman to join the Skye brigade in a decade. “I’d just moved to the area and didn’t really know anyone and wanted to find something to do,” Ms Pola said. “I was going to join a netball team

“Check out what’s on at Bunnings Carrum Downs”

but I thought the CFA was better for the community.” Ms Pola officially started as a volunteer in June and has completed her minimum skills training and continues to train alongside her fellow volunteers every Monday night. “I love it, it’s good fun and I’ve learned a lot about tankers and trucks but more importantly about teamwork and learning to communicate with other people,” she said. “Everyone has been very friendly and it’s not difficult at all.”Last week the brigade hosted cross training with Coast Guard members, following similar joint exercises with SES volunteers.

New brigade captain Troy Wallace said he hopes more women will sign up as CFA volunteers at Skye. The CFA brigade trained with Coast Guard members last week after similar joint exercises with State Emergency Services volunteers. “We’re only a relatively small brigade with 32 members but our volunteers are well trained and equipped to manage anything that comes our way,” Mr Wallace said. The Skye brigade has experienced a 25 per cent rise in calls over the past four years and now responds to about 260 incidents a year, along with supporting the CFA’s surge capacity across Victoria.

Radio station pops up at shops “The Voice of the Peninsula”, community radio station RPP FM, has opened its first pop-up studio, away from its Mornington base, at Frankston’s Bayside Shopping Centre. RPP FM’s new studio shop front at Balmoral Walk hit the airwaves for the first time last Friday (10 November). “Local radio depends on local people. RPP FM encourages people to get involved and for local businesses to utilise the station’s broadcast and production facilities when it comes to promoting their services,” RPP FM station manager Brendon Telfer said. “The reach of the station encapsulates the entire Mornington Peninsula and is also heard across greater Melbourne.” Mr Telfer said the radio station now has an app and releases podcasts online that “tap into local news, issues and events”. RPP FM personality Jacki Mitchell hosted the inaugural broadcast from the pop-up studio and

welcomed Ritchies stores CEO Fred Harrison, Frankston Foundry co-founder Cameron Rambert and Frankston Business Network president Karin Hann to the station’s newest digs to talk about business challenges and opportunities in the Frankston and peninsula region. RPP FM broadcasts across Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula on 98.3FM. In 2011, the community radio station -- then known as 3RPP -- decided to move from Moorooduc Coolstores to a classroom block at the former Mornington Secondary College site on Wilsons Rd. Frankston Council at the time offered the station a section of the former Milpara Park aged care hostel in Ebdale St but the proposed annual rent of $90 per square metre was not regarded as “a community group rate” by radio station management who opted to take a Mornington Peninsula Shire council offer of a move to Mornington.

A CALL has gone out asking for contributions to a good cause in the name of art helping people struggling with mental health or disabilities. Not-for-profit mental health and disability support organisation Wellways and artist Annabelle Carver are on the look out for unwanted art supplies donations to ensure the paint never runs dry at community art groups. “Art and creativity is a fantastic way for any person to express their dreams, hopes, fears, happiness or any other emotion,” Wellways south eastern Melbourne regional manager Marinette Dames said. “People can show their feelings and experiences in a way that cannot be done using words.” Ms Carver struggled to live a productive life after suffering from anxiety and depression from the age of 14 until 22, before seeking help and finding producing art can be a way to keep the

fog of depression at bay. “Art therapy classes need art supplies and I’ve been wanting to do a charity paint drive for a while,” she said. Ms Carver said a weekly Artwell program at Frankston Art Centre’s Cube 37 facilitated by Peter Fanton is just one such art group that can benefit from donated arts supplies. The Artwell program enables people to practice mental wellness through painting, drawing and sculpture. Unwanted art and craft supplies can be dropped off at Wellways, 45 Davey St, Frankston or by calling Wellways on 9784 6800 to arrange collection. See wellways.org for more information on the organisation’s work helping people needing community care.

Beamer rams patrol cars

A BMW X5 sporting stolen number plates was rammed into two police cars in a McDonald’s car park at Frankston North, early Friday morning, 10 November. The force of the impact knocked one of the cars into a policeman standing beside it. He was not injured in incident at 12.30am. Sergeant Anthony Maxwell, of Frankston CIU, said the driver of the black four-wheel-drive, described as Caucasian, sped off along Ballarto Rd. The car has roof racks and registration plates AHO 096. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000..

Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Paul Busuttil, of Frankston CIU, said police would especially target those selling synthetic cannabis in shops, usually “adult shops”, in which the drug can make up 80 per cent of sales. “We will visit all 10 retailers in Frankston and take a zero tolerance approach,” Detective Busuttil said. “They are being put on notice that there will be random visits and that ignorance is no excuse.” Retailers were able to change the mix of ingredients to remain clear of the ban under previous legislation which identified specific molecules in the product. Now a “blanket ban” makes this harder to bypass.

Shop set on fire

FRANKSTON detectives say they will take a hardline approach against the sellers of synthetic cannabis now the practice has been criminalised. Legislation passed by state Parliament on 1 November prohibits the production, sale, supply or advertising of drugs that have psychoactive effects. Heavy penalties apply. A first offence can result in a $19,000 fine or two years in jail.

A BAG containing a man’s wallet and other personal items was stolen from a Frankston hotel last month.

Dedication to health the ‘best in the nation’ THE Atticus Health Medical Clinic in Carrum has received a welcome shot in the arm as the winners of the 2017 award for Best General Practice in Australia by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners. Owner Dr Floyd Gomes started the clinic four and a half years ago and is proud of what his practice has achieved in that time. “It’s a big deal -- I think it validates our willingness to be a bit different and try to extend beyond the clinic, and that takes a lot of effort from a lot of people along the way, including our doctors, our nurses, and our receptionist.” The award was handed out by the RACGP, Australia’s largest organisation representing general practitioners. They represent more than 22,000 GPs working in Australia. Atticus Health won the award for best General Practice in Victoria, before being named the best in the country. “We get out in the community, and we really try and support our patients 24/7. We have our own internal after hours service that takes calls at all hours in the night, and we try our best to support our patients once they’ve left the consulting room,” Dr Gomes said. “We’re not keen to just go through the motions, we reflect on if what we’re doing has had an actual impact, and if it hasn’t, we’ll change what we’re doing.” The Atticus Health practice offers a number of services to make sure they are keeping their patients healthy, including general practitioner services, a gym, healthcare at high schools and nursing homes, as well as talks about health at local football clubs. “We try our best to treat each patient in the community as an individual and look at their needs and stories, and that’s made a big difference. ‘We’ve been welcomed and integrated into that community, and we try our best to help out by keeping our patients well from a preventative health perspective. We’re keen to give our patients wings as opposed to just Band-Aids.” Atticus Health also has clinics in Hastings, Bittern, and Somerville.

Dishing up pride at school FREE and healthy lunches are on the menu at Mahogany Rise Primary School to ensure school children are “happy, healthy and resilient”. The Frankston North school is one of 500 schools across Victoria that also has a School Breakfast Club to dish up free healthy breakfasts to pupils. A $200,000 community kitchen to cater for the free meals each school day was opened in May thanks to a state government grant. State Education Minister James Merlino visited the school last Wednesday (8 November) for a tour of the community kitchen and school. “Healthy food programs ensure students have the fuel that they need to learn throughout the entire school day,” Mr Merlino said. “It’s exciting to see Mahogany Rise

Primary School serve up these fantastic meals and I look forward to seeing many more cooked up in the school’s kitchen.” Frankston Labor MP Paul Edbrooke welcomed Mr Merlino to the school and praised staff for the hard work behind the scenes serving us so many hot meals each day. “Mahogany Rise is not only making sure students have a full stomach it is teaching them cooking and healthy eating skills they can rely on their entire lives,” he said. Mahogany Rise principal John Culley said the school’s new kitchen has been a boon for staff and pupils. “This is what can be achieved when good ideas are turned into realities,” he said. “There are now 135 students being fed healthily every day.”

Smart school resourceful LANGWARRIN’S St Jude’s Primary School missed out on the top gong in last month’s ResourceSmart Schools Awards but its nomination as “Community Leadership School of the Year” shows the school is heading towards an environmentally-friendly future. St Jude’s was one of just four schools in the running for the award at the Sustainability Victoria awards ceremony for pupils’ and staff efforts to introduce Waste Wise initiatives including energy efficiency and reduced water wastage. A sustainability garden built at the school teaches pupils about biodiversity to protect the environment. “St Jude’s are working towards sustainability as we are custodians of the Earth, we do not own it but must leave it in better condition than when we found it,” Principal Mick Kerin said. “Kinder children attend St Jude’s, the

They harvest some food and take it to the kitchen to learn how to cook it and then share a meal.” Hastings electorate MP Neale Burgess visited the school last Friday and congratulated staff and pupils including teachers Helen Pepi and Martine Taylor on the award nomination. St Louis de Montfort’s School in Aspendale was named both the Community Leadership School of the Year and Community Leadership School of the Decade at last month’s ResourceSmart awards.

Former cop’s memoirs on way BUILDING the fabric of Frankston’s community is a collaborative effort and that’s exactly what a writing group will be doing to put together the memoirs of a founding father of several community groups. The Frankston Writers and Poets Society Incorporated are working with retired detective chief inspector Bryan Mace to write a book detailing the former police officer’s time helping groups form in what will become a snapshot of Frankston’s recent history. Individual writers group members will pen a chapter each to collaboratively bring Mr Mace’s experiences to readers. “Bryan’s early years in the police force and his affiliation with Frankston has culminated in many completed projects, including the establishment of the Frankston Dolphins’ football ground, Frankston Sunday markets and the Frankston Youth Centre,” Writers group spokeswoman Beverley Allen said.

“Members of the Frankston Writers and Poets Society were so impressed with Bryan’s efforts in making Frankston a better place they decided to invite him to allow them to write his memoirs as a lasting legacy to the people of Frankston and his family.” Mr Mace was guest speaker at a society meeting at Frankston Library on Saturday 28 October to speak about the changes he saw across Frankston during his career as a police officer. The book will be finished to coincide with a writers and book festival the society is planning to be held in March next year at Frankston Arts Centre. The Frankston Writers and Poets Society meets at Frankston Library, 60 Playne St, Frankston on Saturdays every fortnight.

Panthers purr on day one PROVINCIAL

Swashbuckling innings: Pearcedale dominated Sorrento in their MPCA Provincal match. Picture: Andrew Hurst

By IT Gully PEARCEDALE is just 39 runs away from victory after dominating Sorrento on the opening day of their MPCA Provincial clash. Sorrento won just one battle for the afternoon, the toss, and it did them no good at all. The Sorras were put to the sword and made to look second rate by the Panthers, rolled for just 98. Pearcedale’s Chris Dew started with the new ball and had an immediate impact, removing both Sorrento openers, Corey Harris (4) and Tom Clarke (5). At that stage the Sorras were 2/12. Things really turned pair-shaped for the home side when Jedd Falck was run out for 10, just as he and skipper Bobby Wilson were resurrecting the innings. Beau Scoble then got involved for the Panthers, including picking up Leigh Poholke for a blob, and finished the afternoon with 2/16 from nine over, Dew finished with 4/43 from 23 and skipper Kaine Smith jumped on the gravy train and cleaned up with 3/8 from 7.5 overs. Wilson top scored for the Sorras with 22, while Liam O’Connor chimed in with 19. With 28 overs left in the day’s play, Pearcedale lost opener Brad Trotter (4)

early but were cruising at the end of the day with Dew unbeaten on 30 and Will Kennedy on 21. Pearcedale will resume on 1/60. Mt Eliza has the upper hand over old foe Mornington and looks highly likely to grab victory in this match. Mornington batted first but could only muster 144, thanks largely to Michael Heib, who made 41 batting at nine. The next best bat for the Dogs was Brad McDonald with 21. Lyle House did most of the damage with the ball for the Mounties, picking up 4/38 from 21 overs, while Nick Baron took 2/33 from 15.2 overs. The Doggies started sensationally with the ball, removing both openers Damien Kent (9) and Tim Clarke (1) before the score had reached 15. However, Josh Goudge (15) and Keith Biggs (25) were unbeaten at stumps with Mt Eliza in a strong position at 2/50. Peninsula Old Boys have set Baxter 212 for victory and the reigning champs will already go into day two with star Daniel Warwick back in the sheds. Baxter rolled POB for 211 and had to face the final two overs of the day. Bowling the second and last over of the day, POB’s Tom Shyler had War-

Christides hit 41 to get the visitors away to a strong start. The Parkers then lost quick wickets before Daniel Ballard (34) and Ricky Ramsdale (21) got things going again. Andrew Stapleton added 19 runs at the end which were handy. Flinders’ skipper Neil Barfuss was the best of the bowlers with 3/34 from 20 overs, while Will Tuck picked up 3/42 from 15. Pines and Red Hill are locked in an interesting battle after the conclusion of the opening day. Pines batted first and made 166. Brent Martin did the bulk of the damage with the ball for the Hillmen with 3/45 from 23 overs, while Simon Dart snared 2/18. The Hillmen faced the final four overs of the day and lost the dangerous Matt Merifield for a duck, courtesy of Pat Jackson. The Hillmen will resume this week at 1/13 after Andrew Mock (7) and Riley Shaw (6) saw their side through to stumps.

Ducs are all lined up against Eagles PENINSULA

By IT Gully MOOROODUC has placed itself in a wonderful position to knock over Somerville after the first day of round five in MPCA Peninsula cricket. The Ducs batted first in perfect conditions and progressed to 210 before being bowled out with nine overs left in the day. Ben Williams got the visitors away to a solid start with 42 at the top of the innings, while Rashimal Mendis provided great support at four with 57, including six boundaries. Keeper Nick Williams added 28 and there was some wag in the tail, which saw the Ducs get past 200. The Eagles used seven bowlers throughout the innings, Blake Terlaak the best of them with 3/33 from 17 overs. Jarryd Parker claimed 2/28 from six overs and skipper Jayde Herrick opened the attack with 2/31 from 11 overs. Somerville got away to a woeful start in the chase, losing its first three wick-

ets for just nine runs with openers Parker and Brad Jones removed for ducks and Sean Parker for four. Pathum De Mel picked up 2/4 and Kenny Cremen 1/9 for the Ducs. Bailey Henderson and Brenton Alp will resume for the Eagles on Saturday with the score on 3/22. Main Ridge has set Long Island a healthy score to chase down after batting first and making 9/260 at Ditterich Reserve. We all know that 260 is probably a sub-par score on the smaller Main Ridge deck, however, runs on the board give the Ridge the upper hand. Michael Holmes opened for the Ridge with 50, Shaun Foster was runout for 72, Nick Jewell made 25 and Ed Aarons scored 55 to get the Ridge past 250 and in a commanding position. Lachy Dobson was expensive for the Islanders with 3/87 from 21 overs, while Andrew Tweddle snared 3/58 from 18 overs. Delacombe Park was unable to capitalise on a great start against Flinders but still managed a good score of 237. Jon Guthrie opened with 64 and Nick

wick caught by Dylan O’Malley for a duck, leaving Baxter at 1/4 at stumps. Ealier in the day, Baxter would have been reasonably happy with the effort of the bowlers, although Jon Forrest did get away from the visitors with a fine knock of 79. Forrest saw POB go from 4/55 to 6/190 when he was finally out. Hugh Peacock was also very good for POB with 36 and Wade Pelzer continued his great form with 34. Ben Brittain was the pick of the Baxter bowlers with 3/17 while Chamika Sattambi snared 3/40 from 16 overs. Langwarrin has given itself every opportunity to win away against Crib Point. The Magpies batted first after winning the toss and made 162. Jake Prosser was once again in the wickets for the Kangas with 3/23 from 18 overs, including eight maidens, while Matt Campbell picked up 2/41 from 18.1 overs. Skipper Trav Campbell opened the bowling with 2/30 from 13 overs. Langwarrin faced the final three overs of the day and came away unscathed. They will resume at 0/12 with Tay Smith and the in-form Matt Prosser at the crease.

Tigers tough against the Hills DISTRICT

By IT Gully A MIDDLE order revival has seen Seaford Tigers go from being in trouble to holding the upper hand in its MPCA District clash against Heatherhill. The Tigers won the toss and batted first on their home deck but looked to be in all sorts of trouble early when it lost its opening three batsmen for just 11 runs. Skipper David James was out for four, Dave Roach for two and Anthony Joel for three, all courtesy of Hill’s

PAGE 26

opening quick Jake Theobald, who was on fire early. The Tigers needed some intervention and it came in the form of Mackenzie Gardner and Ash Mills. Gardner hit 48 and Mills 56 to help the Tigers move on from 3/11 to 4/89. Jack Brooking then played one of his finest First XI innings with 50 and Jon Plakourakis added 36 to help the Tigers to a more than respectable 8/262 – a long way from 3/11. Theobald finished with 3/53 from 21 overs for the Hills, while Jon Powell and Luke Whitmore picked up two

wickets each. Tigers’ neighbour, Seaford, didn’t fare as well against Rosebud at Olympic Park. Seaford batted first and were restricted to just 138 in 75 overs. Jason Nagel was at his absolute vintage best, toiling for 28 overs for a sensational return of 5/62. Chip off the ol’ block Pat Nagel was equally as impressive, bowling 19 overs and finishing with 3/31, including eight overs. Billy Quigley bowled 10 overs and went for just nine runs, while Nathan

O’Sullivan snared 1/9 from seven overs. The Buds were simply superb with the ball. In reply, the home side is 0/3. Mt Martha has placed itself in a strong position against Rye, scoring 226 on the opening day of their clash. Rye faced the final five overs of the day and lost opener Coen Packer for a duck, leaving the Demons at 1/8 at stumps. Earlier, Reds’ opener Ryan Godwin top scored with 69 while a number of batsmen got starts before going out in their 20’s. Todd Harnett was the pick of the

Rye bowlers with 4/49 from 20.3 overs while Zac Stephenson picked up 2/55. The match between Hastings and Baden Powell will go down to the wire after a staggering 14 wickets fell on the opening day. Hastings batted first and once again failed dismally, rolled for just 119. Rob Hearn top scored with 23 and Isuru Dias hit 20. Sean Hewitt made 19. However, Baden Powell wasn’t much better with the bat, losing 4/23 in the final 11 overs of the day. Ryan McNamara and Dias picked up two wickets each.

The Saints go marching on SUB-DISTRICT

By IT Gully BALNARRING continued its superb form on Saturday on day one of MPCA Sub District cricket, scoring a massive 9/324 against Ballam Park. Seasoned campaigner Pete Mereszko was the star of the show for the Saints, opening with 74, including 13 boundaries, while there was plenty of support throughout the afternoon

from the rest of the line up. Darrel Brown scored a half century (50), skipper Mal Coutts added 41, Mark Walles 39 and Nathan Kleinig 35 as the Saints marched past 300. Ballam Park will need to produce something very special this week to win the match. Tootgarook has left Dromana with plenty of work to do after scoring 9/247 on Saturday at Pier St. Despite a superb 5/49 from 15 overs

from Jack Fowler, the Frogs have given themselves the upper hand. Dromana’s ‘lesser-likes’ need to make a contribution with the bat this week if they are to win. Tyabb was solid with the bat against Carrum in their match at Roy Dore Reserve, scoring 7/246. Jarrod White was exceptional for the Yabbies with 81, while Nick Taranto scored 42 and Matt Dimkos 45. Brodie Bennett was also solid with 37.

Jake D’Atri bowled 29 overs for the Lions and finished with 2/74 while Cory Foster and Deegan Vokes each picked up two wickets. Frankston YCW has started well in its run chase against Carrum Downs. The Cougars batted first and made 177, David Dervan again top scoring with 53 and Leon McConnell opening with 46. The Stonecats faced the final eight

overs of the day and will resume on day two at 0/25. Patrick Beckham top scored with 78 for Skye in its match against Boneo. Clint Donohue added 22 and Rob Gruar 21 to help Skye to 200. Leigh Janssen was superb for the Pandas, bowling a whopping 40 overs and finishing with 6/71, including 18 maidens.

Is Alana Murphy a Matilda in waiting? SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie THERE is a remarkable talent in our midst and she only turned 12 in September. Alana Murphy was five when she played her first game for Langwarrin. She scored twice at Lawton Park that day and she’s been scoring goals for fun every since. She is the second youngest member of Victoria’s mini National Training Centre squad which competed in the 2017 women’s NPL under-15 competition. Her team beat up on most opponents throughout the season losing just one game and strolling to the title with five rounds to go. Murphy was initially attracted to soccer through the involvement of her older brother Owen and father Steve. She played in boys’ leagues for some of her time at Langy and was just eight years old in 2014 when playing in an under-11 girls’ league. “I had to make a decision to stay with the girls or go with the boys’ league,” said Murphy. She chose the boys’ under-10s league in 2015 under coach Gary Brisbane and has never looked back. “I think it was a better challenge for me because it was like more physical and faster and I improved a lot in that year.” At the end of the 2015 season Murphy played futsal, an indoor fivea-side competition, was the MVP in an under-12 boys’ league and represented Victoria at the national futsal championships. The introduction of a women’s NPL competition for 2016 saw Murphy surprise many onlookers when she bypassed local club Southern United and signed for Box Hill United. She had been selected for a Skill Acquisition Program under Stefano Sakalis the previous season and chose to join Sakalis’ under-13 squad at Wembley Park. She was just 10 years old for most of the season but handled the elite

competition with aplomb. Box Hill finished third and lost the under-13 grand final 1-0 to Bulleen with the decider coming three minutes from time. Murphy’s 24 goals clinched Box Hill’s top scorer award and best and fairest. She was runner-up in the race for league Golden Boot honours. Partway through that season she joined a train-on squad doing one session a fortnight with the NTC and at the end of the season was invited to train with the select group on a regular basis. In October last year the Murphy family received a phone call from the NTC saying that they were delighted with what they’d seen from Alana and she was offered a full-time spot. The girl with the long ponytail again tormented opposition defences, scoring 23 goals to be NTC’s top scorer this year and third top scorer in the league. Every astute judge that has seen Murphy in action rates her highly. Skill has been described as a love affair between a child and a ball and for Murphy it’s a love affair that could carry her to the sport’s dizzy heights. “I want to play for the Matildas.

That’s my goal,” she says in a matterof-fact manner. Stephanie Catley and Sam Kerr are her current Matilda favourites. “Steph Catley is really calm on the ball and her passing is accurate and if she loses the ball she transitions really quick,” said Murphy. “And I like scoring goals and Sam Kerr scores goals.” Kerr scored one and set up two goals in the Matildas’ stunning 6-1 thrashing of Brazil in California on Friday 4 August this year to clinch the Tournament of Nations. Murphy was transfixed in front of the TV in her bedroom watching her idols strut their stuff and ended up arriving at Langwarrin Park Primary School 15 minutes late that morning. “I got caught up watching it but like I don’t really care about looking at the time because when mum says go I just go.” Mum is Emily Murphy and following Alana’s dream has taken the family to national championships at Coff’s Harbour and national schoolgirls’ championships in Perth. Next month the Murphy family and Alana’s grandmother are off to Adelaide to watch her play for Victoria’s

under-12s in the national schoolgirls championships for the second time. While winning awards has become second nature to the young goalscoring prodigy she is acutely aware of areas she must work on to raise her game to greater heights. “I mainly use my right foot (scoring goals) but I can finish on my left,” said Murphy. “Sometimes I need to take my shots a bit quicker and not have too many touches and every now and then my first touch is not so good. “I often kick the ball at a wall really hard then control it to improve my touch.” It will be interesting to see how she develops next year when she becomes a student at Rowville Secondary College, joining its renowned soccer program under noted developmental coach Ian Greener. Although Murphy has made her mark in front of goal she is keen to play in a more withdrawn role as an attacking midfielder in order “to become involved a lot more.” Whichever onfield role evolves her 2015 coach has no doubts about her ability to reach the pinnacle of the sport. “If you took her long hair away you couldn’t tell the difference between her and the boys,” said Brisbane. “She’s a naturally gifted player and as for having a soccer brain she looks like she’s been playing for 20 years. “She reads the play really well and as a minimum I expect that she’ll play for Melbourne Victory or Melbourne City. “But I can see a future similar to Bailey Wright. She’ll leave Langwarrin and one day she’ll be wearing the green and gold.” Meanwhile Mornington has made a key signing with the capture of experienced central defender Jamie Cumming from Avondale. “It’s a fantastic get as Avondale had the best defensive record in the NPL this year and Jamie played just about every game,” said Mornington gaffer Adam Jamieson.

Cumming has had stints at Oakleigh Cannons, Bentleigh Greens and Heidelberg United and was on Langwarrin’s radar before heading to Dallas Brooks Park. Mornington also has secured the services of goalkeeping coach Peter Blasby who has resigned from his position with Bentleigh Greens. Local women’s club Southern United continues to fall foul of the pied piper effect as senior players are lured to NPL rival Bayside United which has secured the services of former Southern coaches Rob Giabardo and Bill Mihaloudis. Bayside dropped a bombshell recently when it announced it had secured the signature of 2017 Southern captain and women’s NPL Gold Medal winner Candela Ferreyra-Bas. Within days Bayside announced the capture of the Fonau sisters from Southern, goalkeeper Christine and defender Lisa while Elisabeth Robers, Savanah Anastopoulos, Rebecca Saber and Tayla Evans have also been linked with Bayside. Word is that Southern isn’t going to take this lying down and don’t be surprised if some Bayside players head in the opposite direction. Southern starts pre-season training tonight at Monterey Reserve at 7.30pm. The 2018 Steve Wallace Memorial Cup will be held on Saturday 3 February at Baxter Park. Just on $9000 for Frankston Hospital’s emergency department has been raised from the three previous tournaments. Once again competing clubs will be split into two groups and play each other in a round-robin format. So far Langwarrin, Mornington, Casey Comets, Frankston Pines, Skye United, Peninsula Strikers, Seaford United and Baxter have signed up and tournament organiser Tanya Wallace is hopeful that Rosebud Heart will again be represented. State League 2 club Old Scotch is keen to participate and is the likely 10th team in the annual event.
