Game plan: Footy great Gary Buckenara has dedicated himself to the Dolphins’ resurgence. Picture: Yanni

Dolphins face AFL grilling Stephen Taylor steve@baysidenews.com.au THE playing future of the Frankston Football Club hinges on a must-win presentation to AFL chiefs on 30 June. That deadline is concentrating the mind of new Dolphins general manager Gary Buckenara as he plots the club’s course back into VFL ranks.

A successful outcome will help the club get its playing licence back for next year after being forced to sit out the 2017 season. Crippling pokies-related debts and an under-utilised function centre brought the 1887 club to its knees and provided a huge wake-up call to sporting clubs relying on gaming income for their survival. It is believed the Dolphins paid $30,000-$40,000 too

much for each of their 29 under-used pokies machines and set the seeds for a disastrous chain of events. “Paying too much for the machines would have been OK if we had the patronage,” Buckenara said. “If we had paid less for the machines we would have been making more money, but patronage was not enough to cover loan repayments.” Accumulated debts mounted until the

club owed $1.5 million, making player and staff payments difficult. This lack of cash flow inhibited promotion of the new function centre, undermining both sources of income. “We didn’t have the funds to promote the centre as we should have. It’s a fantastic venue but because we didn’t have the money to pay a manager and had a skeleton staff from the football club running it, it was just sitting there.

“So many people didn’t even know it existed.” But things are looking up for the club which is desperate to resurrect itself and become the powerhouse for football it has previously been. “A manager has been appointed and we see a successful future relies on getting the Functions by the Bay centre running successfully,” Buckenara said.

Chance for say on city’s plan, spending FRANKSTON mayor Cr Brian Cunial says the council’s draft 2017-18 budget and five-year council plan “overcome impediments caused by the state government’s rate capping to deliver services and capital works that our community needs and deserves”. This was the second budget to be framed under the revenue restriction, which this year impose a two per cent

cap on rate increases. The draft budget and council plan are on public display, with members of the public able to have their say until 5pm, Friday 12 May. The budget provides $3.27 million to maintain and improve Frankston’s road and bridge network; $2.38 million for a multi-use pavilion at Carrum Downs Recreation Reserve; $1.4 mil-

lion for the Ballam Park East Pavilion, and $1.08 million to enhance the city centre alongside the Wells and Young streets’ redevelopments. The 2017-21 council plan sets out the council’s vision for Frankston City over the next four years. Its priorities are to develop a regional tennis facility; build a marina at Olivers Hills and a new Coast Guard building; electrify

the rail line to Baxter, and deliver stage two of the Frankston station precinct. Copies of the draft budget and council plan can be obtained from the council’s customer service centres or online at frankston.vic.gov.au A public information session will be held 6-7pm, Wednesday 3 May, at the Frankston Park Function Centre. Cr Cunial and Frankston CEO Dennis

Hovenden will speak and members of the public will have an opportunity to provide feedback and ask questions. A special meeting of council will be held 5.30pm, Monday 22 May, at the Civic Centre, where councillors will consider submissions on both documents. Public submissions can be made in writing to the CEO, or online at frankston.vic.gov.au/HaveYourSay

Cruel end for ‘puppies’ of the sea Keith Platt keith@baysidenews.com.au A CAMPAIGN has been launched to stop the mostly hidden killing and maiming of a group of fish known as smooth rays. The rays are rarely sought after for food but are often killed so they won’t waste a second bait or out of fear, in the case of stingrays. Although the rays will only attack if provoked, scuba diver PT Hirschfield says the level of fear has risen noticeably since Australian wildlife expert Steve Irwin died in 2006 after being pierced in the chest by a stingray barb while filming for the documentary, Ocean's Deadliest. Hirschfield likens the subsequent backlash against stingrays to the heightened fear of sharks caused by Steven Speilberg’s 1975 thriller, Jaws. She dives almost daily and has become increasingly horrified and saddened by the numbers of dead smooth rays littering the seabed around piers in Port Phillip. “The huge smooth rays I dive with are gentle, curious puppies.” Hirschfield wants rays to be protected near piers “as they are rarely the intended catch of fishers”. “People seem to have a real dread of stingrays and seem to assume they will attack. They don’t really understand that they can become tame and are easily caught.” Hirschfield blames anglers for most of the ray carcasses near “because they don’t want to catch them twice”. A closed Facebook group using the name Project Banjo Action Group has about 300 followers dedicated to raising awareness of the needless cruelty being dealt to rays, which include fiddler rays or banjo sharks. Hirschfield discovered one of the most callous instances of cruelty under Rye pier where a 250-300 kilogram ray had been dumped after hav-

Ray ban: Keen scuba diver P T Hirschfield wants the state government to ban the catching of smooth rays, including sting rays, near piers and jetties in Port Phillip. She says this ray was probably dumped under Rye pier after having its wings cut off for bait.

ing its wings and tail hacked off. She believes the meat may have been kept as shark bait “which would be against Fisheries Victoria Regulations”. “The rays at peninsula piers are iconic and much loved by locals, tourists, divers, snorkelers and fishers alike. An image of me with the remains of the

ray at Rye has begun to circulate and cause much outrage in social media,” Hirschfield said. “The Project Banjo Action Group is campaigning for greater education about rays on the peninsula to combat the Irwin Effect, as well as better compliance with Fisheries regulations. “Like timid, reclusive blue ringed

octopuses that have only ever been responsible for three fatalities in history, stingrays have been much maligned and have become the victims of global smear and fear campaigns and unjustified knee-jerk reactions. “Ignorant fishermen frequently cut off their barbs and tails, throwing the mutilated animals back into the ocean

or killing them without justification – what utterly cruel, irresponsible and senseless abuse of these gorgeous, essentially harmless creatures. “The reality is that stingrays do not prey on humans in any way, instead preying on smaller marine creatures.” Hirschfield says regulations allow for a bag limit of five rays of one or more species. However, the same regulations also state that it is an offence to fail to return [unwanted] fish to water without injury or damage. “Fisheries Victoria advises that fishers are to ‘dispatch fish you intend to keep immediately’. It is unacceptable common practice that the tails, barbs and wings of various species of sharks and rays - including fiddler rays and huge smooth rays - are often hacked off while the animal is still alive.” Hirschfield said the group wanted to increase “awareness and appreciation of” rays throughout the fishing and non-fishing community; and increase the understanding and compliance with regulations and best practice “as an integral part of the licensing process”. More signs about regulations, best practice and penalties were needed on the fishing end of piers. Hirschfield stresses that the Project Banjo Action Group “is not a vigilante group”. “The success of this campaign is dependent on operating from a position of respect for all parties involved. Showing disrespect for those with opposing views and behaviours may inflame the situation rather than resolve it.” Details of any offences can be reported to Fisheries on 133474.

Stephen Taylor steve@baysidenews.com.au A BOATIE’S frolic with friends in his half-cabin runabout on New Year’s Eve turned sour when they ran out of petrol at sea off Mordialloc and discovered there were not enough life jackets, had no anchor or fire extinguisher and the distress flares were out of date. The Cranbourne man, 43, has been charged on summons with failing to take care when operating a vessel and is expected to appear at court at a later date. The man, a mate and three 18 –yearold girls launched the 4.6 metre fibreglass boat at Frankston intending to cruise to Docklands to watch the fireworks. On the way they skylarked in a ski tube off Frankston in the fine conditions and light westerly wind. The man allegedly told the group that the boat had the required safety equipment on board. After watching the fireworks the mate decided to stay in the city while the man and three girls began motoring the 20km back to Frankston about 12.30am. Police said the man did not check on how much fuel was left in the two 25-litre removable tanks and passed easily accessible fuel outlets at St Kilda and Southland. At 2.30am, about two nautical miles off Mordialloc, they ran out of fuel.

SCHOOL SHOES, ALL SIZES, ALL YEAR ROUND Brands include Harrison, Roc, Wilde, Surefit & Clarks Harrison Indy II just arrived. Sizes up to US 11

Without an anchor the boat’s bow could not be held in position in the small chop and, as it drifted, the group realised they had no idea where they were. One of the girls ignited two flares to alert other boats in the area. They were six years out of date and one exploded in her face, causing minor burns. Another girl dialled 000, but Water Police said they had trouble finding the boat because they could only be given an approximate location. The three girls then noticed that there was only one life jacket on board. Water police managed to find the stricken boat at 3.50am and the three girls were taken on board. The boatie was given an approved life jacket and towed back to Mordialloc pier where he was interviewed by police.

Bag snatch attempt A WOMAN in her mid-30s was attacked by up to five teenagers who tried to steal her backpack, 8.45am, Thursday 6 April. Detective Senior Constable Mitchell Hardisty, of Frankston CIU, said the woman noticed the group when she was walking along Hastings Rd, Frankston, near Foot St. One of the teenagers rode his bike into the back of her legs and tried unsuccessfully to pull the backpack off her shoulder. Nothing was stolen in the attack but the woman received bruising to her legs. Anyone with

information is urged to call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

Explosives charges A SEAFORD man, 31, will face Frankston Magistrates’ Court in June charged with manufacturing and storing explosives. Detectives executing a drugs warrant on the man’s property, Thursday 6 April, thought they had come across a clandestine drug laboratory after allegedly finding a white powder. However, specialist units later discounted that assumption. Detective Senior Constable Adam Pagram, of Frankston CIU, said police would allege powders were found in the garage which are consistent with the making of explosives.

Couple’s court date over drugs A WOMAN, 60, and a man, in his late 30s, have been charged with cultivating a drug of dependence after police raided a Seaford property, Friday 7 April. Detective Senior Constable Lonie Butler, of Frankston CIU, said police found six cannabis plants growing in the garden and an amount of cash during the raid. The pair will appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court at a later date.

Shared experience: Patterson River Secondary College students Laura Mahoney, left, and Emily Hibberd, teach dental hygiene to primary pupils at a school at Siem Reap, Cambodia.

Students can enrol for ‘trip of a lifetime’ ROTARY’S Alternative Schoolies trip to Cambodia is leaving on 26 November and is open to students graduating from year 12. The cross cultural visit will take the students to Phnom Penh and Siem Reap where they will volunteer for various projects. Rotary past president Judy Rebecca said funds from a 2014-15 schoolies trip provided money for a classroom to be built, and toilets and running water installed. Student also teach English and dental hygiene, help with gardening or whatever jobs are needed. Students also experience all of the South-East Asian country’s cultural highlights, as well as such sombre realities as the genocide museum and the killing fields, where they learn about Pol Pot’s regime and gain an understanding of

the recent history of this poor country. They also visit the ancient temples of Angkor in Siem Reap, enjoy the local cuisine and have a lot of fun. The Rotary Club of Frankston Long Island has been running this alternative Schoolies program since 2010. It has now amalgamated with the Rotary Club of Frankston Peninsula 2.0. Ms Rebecca described the annual trip as “a fantastic life changing experience”. The $3600 cost “includes everything”. “Our past students are only too happy to talk about the impact these trips have had on them,” she said. “It has changed their lives.” An information night will be held at 7pm, Monday 24 April, at Langwarrin Community Centre in Warrandyte Rd.

standalone or non-aligned VFL club and offered an important gateway for young players – especially from Gippsland and the Mornington Peninsula – to enter AFL ranks from their local clubs. “The chances of young players getting a game each week with us is much greater than at the aligned clubs, such as Sandringham or Casey; we offer 23 positions each week.” “We have got all of the Mornington Peninsula and south-east Victoria – it’s a huge catchment but we will have to fight hard for it,” he said. “Kids playing junior footy, say in Frankston or the Mornington Peninsula, can go on to play for the Dandenong Stingrays but, after that, there needs to be an elite level of football – which we say is the Dolphins. “That will be part of our presentation to the AFL.” Buckenara said the south-east region of Victoria had the highest football participation rate in Australia. He said the Dolphins had produced 240 VFL/AFL players – more than any other club. Those to have gone on to become big names include John Coleman, Leigh Matthews and Dermot Brereton, as well as Bulldog’s premiership coach Luke Beveridge and players Matthew Boyd and Tory Dickson, Tiger Sam Lloyd and Essendon’s Mark Baguley and Michael Hibberd.

Continued from Page 1 The Dolphins debt has been brought down to a more manageable $410,000 over four years “which gives us a fighting chance”. The club is aiming for 1000 members by the time of the AFL presentation – up from 350 now – which he believes would be the largest of any VFL club. “That would give us something to crow about and would certainly turn heads,” Buckenara said. He said “a lot” of commitments from sponsors for 2018 depended on getting the playing licence renewed, and that the Frankston Council had approved a naming rights sponsor for Frankston Park to be announced on 31 April. “We offer fantastic opportunities for sponsors and anyone can get their name linked to the club.” He hinted that Frankston-based South East Water would be an ideal fit, given its presence in the town and links to supporters. Buckenara, who lives at Rosebud, said the club’s strengths were based on having a stable nine-member board, with AFL life member and long-time football administrator Ian Dicker, of Mt Eliza, acting as an advisor. “We have put the past behind us and are going forward as a new entity,” he said. He said the Frankston Dolphins were the only

Voters’ who don’t reply face fines Stephen Taylor steve@baysidenews.com.au MOST infringement notices issued to those deemed not to have voted at last year’s Frankston City Council elections were because no response was received to apparent-failure-to-vote notices, the Victorian Electoral Commission says. The notices were sent out to 17,322 Frankston voters – or 16.31 per cent of those 106,203 enrolled. The VEC says the notices are not a fine but an “opportunity for people to explain why they didn’t vote. The VEC urges recipients not to ignore the notice”. Spokesman Mike Lagastes said they resulted in 1857 infringement notices being issued to voters for not providing a valid response, and 11,146 infringement notices for not responding at all. On the Mornington Peninsula, apparent-failure-to-vote notices were sent out to 12,531 of the shire’s 156,170 registered voters. About 80 per cent related to no response being received to the initial failure-to-vote notice. This figure is said to compare favourably with previous elections. Mr Lagastes said voter turnout at Frankston’s three wards was: North-East Ward 73.55 per cent; North-West Ward 66.25 per cent and South Ward 71.62 per cent. He was responding to complaints on social media sites that voters had been sent infringement notices for not voting when they are adamant they had. The fine is $78. Frankston MP Paul Edbrooke said “many people who believe they voted correctly expressed

concern on social media that they may have been fined for not voting”. “My office has been contacted by about 10 people who wished to pursue the issue,” he said. Mr Lagastes said there had “been a lot of cases” where ballot material had been returned to the VEC after the deadline of 6pm 21 October. He said there were “no reports of mass delays in the post that would have contributed to that many people sending their notices back late”. “In some cases voters may have written down the wrong date, with some even putting down November and December. Others simply said they had forgotten [to vote],” he said. To complete a postal vote, voters must sign and date the declaration envelope that is then placed into a larger reply paid envelope. “If this declaration is dated by the voter after the close of voting on 21 October 2016, this is a late return and we are obliged to conduct non-voter follow-up,” he said. “Submitting a postal vote after the deadline is the same as not making it to a polling booth before it closes in an attendance election. You are considered to have not voted.” Mr Lagastes’ advice to voters is to “make sure you respond to the infringement notice, especially if you didn’t reply to the apparent-failure-tovote notice. “If you did vote, or believe you had a valid excuse for not voting, request an internal review and provide the VEC with as much supporting information as possible so we can make an independent assessment of your circumstances.” He said the 1300 551 575 helpline can provide specific personal advice.

Colourful protest to shoot down council plan Stephen Taylor steve@baysidenews.com.au ORANGE became the colour of protest on Monday 10 April as up to 500 people marched from the Frankston Yacht Club to the council chambers in support of Frankston Basketball Club. Marked “Save Our Stadium” and “United We March”, the marchers’ tshirts symbolised the basketball community’s stance against Frankston Council as it negotiates over the stalled $12 million stadium redevelopment works and a controversial rent deal. Basketball Victoria says the council’s decision to “raise [the club’s] rent by 250 per cent and attempt to leverage a six per cent tax on future earnings remains a sticking point … as the council aims to force further expenses onto ratepayers”. Frankston District Basketball Association has contributed $1 million towards the redevelopment’s $12 million budget. It says it is “in bad faith that the council would overlook this capital contribution in favour of driving up the costs of local basketball by wanting to take over the facility and run it on its own”. The Times understands the council had wanted to charge the association about $60,000 in rent plus six per cent on any revenue above $1 million, taking the total to about $130,000 a year. This had earlier prompted basketball association general manager Nathan Jolly to accuse the council of making a “cash grab” after the association had pitched in the $1 million. The impasse led to the council halt-

ing works at the stadium. Basketball Victoria CEO Nick Honey told marchers the “increased financial burden that council has tried to shift onto the FDBA is unacceptable”. “Basketball Victoria will always support our member associations in their times of need,” Honey said. “As a state body, it is our role to help protect the association from such actions and, with the Frankston basketball community showing up on its

doorstep this morning, this peaceful march has sent the strongest possible message to Frankston City Council. “We hope council finds the commonsense necessary to seek a middleground in negotiations that doesn’t increase the costs of participation or place an unnecessary financial burden on Frankston’s basketball community.” Frankston MP Paul Edbrooke told the crowd he wanted a “speedy resolution to the impasse”.

Cr Glenn Aitken on behalf of council accepted a basketball association petition signed by 6000 members, players and supporters. FDBA president Gary Emery told Radio 3AW that the council had “trebled” the stadium rent which would force up costs to be passed on to already pressed parents and fans. “People who are struggling now would be forced out,” he said. “They [council] justify this by say-

ing they need a proper return on their investment, [so] we are being penalised for being financially responsible. “We all know what sport means in the Australian culture except this local government. “Sport helps our young people who don’t go wayward because they have something to be involved in and they are being offered something to do.” Strengthening the FDBA’s stance is its nine-year lease on the stadium.

SIGNS at Mornington Peninsula National Park outline the plight of the hooded plover.

Dog ban ‘helps plovers’ THE state government says banning dogs from the coastal Mornington Peninsula National Park has already proved its worth in protecting the endangered hooded plover. Parks Victoria says eight chicks survived the most recent breeding season compared with one two seasons ago. The controversial dog ban was put in place along the 42 kilometre coastline in November 2016 to protect the hooded plover and its habitat. Banning dogs has also enabled Parks Victoria to extend fox control programs to help protect the 32 other fauna species of conservation significance that also inhabit the park. Parks Victoria is undertaking regular targeted patrols to ensure people continue to obey the ban. “Our dog ban is protecting the hooded plover and benefitting all wildlife in the national park.” Energy, Environment and Climate Change Minister Lily D’Ambrosio said. MP for Eastern Victoria Daniel Mulino said a “few people” had been caught disobeying the dog ban over summer although “most … are doing the right thing - which is helping us protect the Peninsula."

Boat repair: Keith Gledhill and Derek Davies with the boat that is being restored as a project by Mt Eliza Men’s Shed.

Shed men fixing a boat MESSING around with boats has taken on a whole new meaning for members of Mt Eliza Men’s Shed who are about to restore a boat donated by the 4th Mordialloc Sea Scout Group. The goal is to “restore this boat into a piece of treasure”, shed member Don Reeves said. The Mt Eliza Men’s Shed is inviting men who “share a passion in boating” to be involved in the restoration. Mr Reeves said shed members were working with two Monash University occupational ther-

apy students on a project to help connect men from Mt Eliza to engage in a variety of projects “They are hoping to promote awareness of the benefits of this men’s shed and its importance on men’s health and well-being,” he said. Activities at the shed include woodwork, toy making and community-related projects. The shed is in the grounds of the Mt Eliza Country Club, 32 Old Mornington Rd, Mt Eliza. Boat restoration sessions will be held 9.30am– 12.30pm Thursdays.

Defender of the bay dies hiking in hills Keith Platt keith@baysidenews.com.au

JOHN Clarke

Picture: Yanni

TRIBUTES for satirist John Clarke flowed from far and wide last Monday week (3 April) as news spread of his death the previous day while hiking in the Grampians National Park. The location of his passing indicated his love of nature, which for many years had included a deep concern for the future of Western Port. Born in New Zealand, Clarke, 68, was a founding member of Western Port Seagrass Partnership, an independent trust formed in 2001 to lobby for the protection and restoration of Western Port and its catchment. Regarded by many as the funniest satirist in Australia, Clark three years ago told journalist Mike Hast that he became interested in Western Port’s environment after “sitting on the beach years ago and noticed lots of black particles in the usually clear water” (“Funny man on a mission” The News 1/2/14). Clarke, who owned a holiday house at Phillip Island, said his “greening” followed subsequent conversations with scientists and ecologists. He saw Western Port as “a special place … under great pressure from human development”. Clarke said sediment resulting from draining Koo Wee Rup swamp was “one of the principal problems” facing the bay “. “This was a bad idea. It was a huge, 50 miles by 15 miles sponge that filtered runoff before it entered Western Port. It was a work of genius by nature.” Clarke’s death sees the loss of a strong and sincere advocate for the environmental health of Western Port as well as one of the most astute commentators on the often hypocritical actions of those who play a part in the wellbeing of Australia.

OPEN NIGHT

The twinkle of his eye, drawn out pause or completely ignoring the question posed by his long time on air collaborator Brian Dawe often said more about a politician than any number of words. Clarke seemed able to convince the viewer that they were hearing direct from the politician without any use of disguise or accent. The seagrass partnership’s secretary Doug Newton said he had been “staggered and devastated” to hear of Clarke’s death. “He will leave a big hole in our organisation – he’s done so much for us,” Mr Newton told The News. Later, in a prepared statement, Mr Newton said Clarke and Professor John Swan had helped “forge and launch” the seagrass partnership, “an organisation which champions community desire for independent advocacy and fearless protection of the wonderful ecosystem of Western Port through education, awareness, partnership projects and scientific knowledge”. “Perhaps his most valuable legacy has been his direction and production of an outstanding resource, Western Port the DVD. This DVD is hugely popular and succinctly describes the treasures and challenges of Western Port and what people can do to help. The DVD includes fabulous interviews with local champions and scientists and several historic documentaries about Western Port and its wildlife. “Our board meetings will never be the same without that trademark wit, clarity and out of the box thinking and inspiration. “Most of all we will miss the company of this thoroughly decent man.” Seaford-based cartoonist and mural painter Tony Sowersby said news of Clarke’s death brought tears to his eyes. “The news of John Clarke’s death hit me hard and the thought of a world without him had me close to breaking down all day,” he

said. Sowersby remembers a winter’s walk on sand exposed by a low tide at Phillip Island and seeing a man with two children “occasionally turning side on and doing something that produced small explosions of sand”. It was Clarke playing a bunker-style shot that would send his golf ball 20 to 30 metres “and then walk to where it landed, stop, look up at an imaginary green, waggle his hips and another plume would arise”. “We recognised him of course. He was already quite famous. It was chilly and he was wearing a white woollen jumper and his pate was covered by a more presentable version of the floppy hat he wore in the Fred Dagg skits,” Sowersby recalls. Clarke said good morning and asked if Sowersby minded him playing through. “He had a twinkle in his eye. Later I came to think of that twinkle as the lighthouse on the island of sanity. We were too surprised to say anything witty or show that we were fans. “A short while later I stopped and mentally kicked myself for I had missed the chance to use Fred Dagg’s regular sign off line in context: I’ll get out of your way now, I’ll see you later.” Years later Sowersby and Clarke corresponded by email. In one of their exchanges in 2013 Clarke commented on a cartoon of Christopher Pyne captioned: “In four days this man will be the education minister.” While many people made rigorous comments, Clarke responded with a single line: “Be still my beating heart”. “I took it first as irony, but then thought it might be delicious anticipation of the satirical opportunity ahead. But now it is almost too poignant to read,” Sowersby said last week. “I loved John Clarke. I never actually met him, but I loved him anyway.”

Anzac Day game for lost teammate Stephen Taylor steve@baysidenews.com.au FORMER teammate Jordan Penpraze will be in the thoughts of Mornington and Frankston baseball club players when they contest a memorial game on the Anzac Day weekend. Sapper Jordan Ronald Penpraze played juniors through to seniors at Mornington Baseball Club. In 2012, his dream career with the Australian Army, Jordan was cut short at the School of Military Engineering when he was injured in a vehicle accident. He was left in a critical condition and his family was forced to make the heartbreaking decision to turn off his life support on 11 October 2012. The Jordan Penpraze Memorial Shield will be played between the two clubs at the Mornington Baseball Club, CB Wilson Reserve, Wilson Rd, Mornington on Saturday 22 April. “The club is hoping to secure this fixture as an annual event,” Mornington Pirates Baseball Club Vice President Myles Dowsett said. “As well as honouring Jordan and all other Anzacs this event is about raising awareness and much-needed funds for The Warriors Return – an organisation dedicated to helping veterans return and adjust to civilian life after service. “They are particularly focused on those suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.” Jordan went to Mt Martha Primary School and Dromana Secondary College. He played softball at Frankston over the summer and baseball for Cheltenham under-16s helping them

win a premiership. He was happy to give all sports a go, including wakeboarding, waterskiing and dirt-bike riding, and was a qualified scuba diver. Jordan's grandfather was an engineer in the Army. “All he ever wanted was to join the army and be a Sapper,” family friend Elizabeth Tobias said. “He was also interested in joining the Army’s dog squad or de-arming bombs. He was always looking for ways he could help as many people as possible. “While in Sydney, Jordan and a fellow soldier helped resuscitate a member of the public, for which they received an Army Commendation Medal.” On the day an A2-grade game will be played as a curtain raiser from noon followed by a ceremony featuring the national anthem, The Last Post and one minute’s silence. This will be followed by the A1 grade game at 2:30pm. Food and drinks, raffle and special edition baseball caps will be sale on the day. The caps have the Pirates’ logo on a camouflage hat as well as the No. 5 which was Jordan's playing number. Profits from the day will be donated to The Warriors Return. Details: thewarriorsreturn.com

Services and marches FRANKSTON RSL’s Anzac Day services, Tuesday 25 April, will continue to commemorate those who went into battle during World War I. This year’ services will be at the new war memorial and cenotaph at Beauty Park, Frankston. The dawn service will be at 5.45am between the end of Baxter Av and High St. The gunfire breakfast will be after the dawn service, between the war memorial and the lake. The commemorative march will begin at 11am from the corner of Yuille and High streets, Frankston. Organisations marching will muster at 10.30am at the starting point. The march will proceed down High St to Baxter Av and turn into the war memorial. The centenary of Anzac commemorative service and wreath laying will follow the march. Service and affiliate members, marchers and their families have been invited to Frankston RSL for a complimentary lunch from midday.

In their thoughts: Mornington and Frankston baseball clubs will contest the Jordan Penpraze memorial game on the Anzac day weekend.

Commemorations, marches across the peninsula THERE will be 13 Anzac Day marches and services on the Mornington Peninsula. The mayor Cr Bev Colomb said the day is a time for “reflection, thankfulness and remembrance of the Anzac landings at Gallipoli”. “While Anzac Day has always been a huge day of national pride, each year reignites the community’s dedication to remembering the sacrifice so many have made for our country. “We will remember not only the original Anzacs who served at Gallipoli, but commemorate more than a century of service by Australian servicemen and women.” Anzac Day program: Balnarring 9.30am service at Balnarring Village Shopping Centre. Crib Point 10.55am march from

Crib Point RSL for 11am service at the cenotaph in Tingara Place. Dromana 6am dawn service at Peninsula RSL; 9.15am march from O’Donohue St for 9.40am service at the cenotaph at Dromana Hall.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Thirteen dinner knives missing after French soldiers visit Compiled by Cameron McCullough IT is a regretable fact that thirteen dinner knives, which had been lent for the occasion, mysteriously disappeared while the entertainment of French soldiers, was in progress, on Sunday, last. Two songs “My little Gray Home in the West” and “Coming Home” are also missing. This kind of thing is contemptible in the extreme and will be well guarded against on future occasions. *** The report of the Mornington Shire Council’s last meeting will appear in our next issue. *** The Church of England Floral Fete will be opened at 3 30.p.m, on Friday next, in the Mechanics’ Hall. *** The Australian Club will hold a dance in the Frankston Hall this evening, the proceeds to go towards the wounded soldiers’ fund. *** The “Wattle” Club will hold a dance in the Mechanic’ Hall on Monday, evening next. A good supper and good music will be provided. *** The Secretary of the Frankston Junior Football Club begs to acknowledge with thanks subscriptions from the residents of Frankston towards the funds of the club. *** Messrs Brody and Mason will sell by auction today, on the property near the Mile Bridge, on account of Mr E. Kitson, the contents of a seven roomed villa residence. Large iron stable, buggy sheds etc, for removal. The sale will

commence at one o’clock punctually. *** Lance Corporal M’Cartney, after being in charge of the military police in Frankston for the last seven months, took his departure for Melbourne this week, where he will be stationed for the present. He has been promoted to the position of Corporal. *** We are pleased to note that Mr Tasker, assistant station master at Frankston, has returned home from hospital, where he has been for the last three or four weeks and underwent two severe operations. He is a slowly recovering. *** In our report of the Australian Club dance last week, in giving a description of the dresses, an error occurred. It should have read: Mr Andrews, Servis; Mrs Andrews, Russia; Mr W. Andrews. French officer; Miss W. Andrews, Belgium; Miss A. Andrews, fairy. *** Messrs Alex Scott and Co Pty, Ltd will hold an unreserved clearing sale at Flinders on Saturday next 28th inst on account of Mr N. Hopcraft, whose lease has expired, of horses, cattle, pigs, sheep, poultry, farm implements, vehicles and farm sundries. The sale will take place at the property, on Musk Creek road three miles from Flinders, at 1.30 sharp. *** It was decided at a “Wattle” Club committee meeting, held on Monday evening, to hold fortnightly entertainments during the winter months. As large troopships of soldiers are

being returned regularly now it is very evident that soldiers’ entertainments will be frequent in Frankston, and it is hoped by these fortnightly dances to make sufficient money to carry on the work. *** A meeting of members of the Frankston Branch of the National Federation will be held at the Mechanics’ Institute on Monday evening at 8 o’clock. It is particularly requested that all those interested in the return of the National Candidates (whether members or not) should attend. As there are a number of important details relative to election matters to be discussed and correspondence from the head office dealt with every member should not fail to put in an appearance. *** An exceedingly pretty and interesting wedding took place on Wednesday, April 11th, in St Francis’ Church, Frankston. It was a typical and ideal Australian day, and all nature seemed to glow and smile on the occasion of this union linking together Ireland and Australia. The contracting parties were Miss Agnes Mary Spillane, eldest daughter of Mr and Mrs J. Spillane, Port Magee, County Kerry, Ireland, and Lieut. V. L. Hyndes, son of Mr and Mrs M. P. Hyndes, Church Hill, Goulburn, New South Wales. The wedding had more than ordinary interest attached as the bride groom is a Gallipoli hero, who, on account of his severe wounds has been returned, and the bride being a general favorite with all classes in Frankston and who, since

coming from Ireland some ten months ago to reside with her aunt, Mrs Moloney, of the Pier Hotel, has worked in every movement for the benefit of the town. In patriotic work Miss Spillane was always foremost and in no small degree has helped in this cause. In the absence of the parents of Miss Spillane, Mrs Maloney undertook the arrangements of the wedding which were carried out in perfect order and only as Mrs Moloney can see things through once she takes them in hand. This lady has proved, her capabilities on more than one occasion, and the large number of guests who were invited, found nothing wanting. The bride, who is uncommonly beautiful was taken to the alter by her cousin, Mr Fitzpatrick, and presented a charming picture in her bridal gown of white crepe de chene and lace, with court train, and the customary wreath and veil. A beautiful string of pearls also worn and an exquisite bridal bouquet composed of orchids and azaleas, completed the pretty picture. Miss Fitzpatrick, cousin of the bride, and Miss Nerrina Day acted as bridesmaids,’ the former wearing a very pretty and, becoming frock of shell pink crepe de chene, with black velvet hat, lined with the same pretty shade of pink. The latter wore a frock of white muslin and lace and a wreath of small pink roses on her head. Their bouquets were composed of pink carnations and azaleas with streamers of white and green, the colors of the bridegroom’s battalion, they

n m u t u A Sale

also wore pearl pins the gifts of the bridegroom. The church had been previously decorated by friends of the bride, no pains being spared to have it looking its very best. The officiating clergyman was the Rev. Father Gibbons assisted by the Rev. Fathers Rowan, Gallagher, O’Sullivan, and Flannery. Miss M’Hugh played the wedding march as the party left the church. Mrs Moloney was dressed in a handsome creation of black crepe de chene and ninon, relieved with shades of pink oriental trimming and hat to match. She carried a bouquet of autumn colored dahlias and leaves. Mrs Hyndes, mother of the bridegroom, wore a gown of black silk relieved with white, and hat to match. She also carried a bouquet of dahlias and autumn leaves. The bridegroom, who was in uniform was supported by Gunner Maxwell Brown, also a returned soldier. The wedding reception and breakfast were held at the Pier Hotel where between fifty and sixty guests partook of a feast second to none, and compliments and congratulations made everything bright and pleasant. It was noticed that six soldiers who had fought and had returned to Frankston, were present to wish their fortunate comrade “good luck.” The happy couple left by car, later, en route for the Blue Mountains, where the honeymoon is to be spent. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 21 April 1917

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

Rental as anything - tale of a phantom X-Trail By Stuart McCullough I BRING these things upon myself. I tempt fate by rolling my trouser leg up just beyond the knee until fate can no longer help itself, giving in and smoting me right between the eyes. A run of bad luck is one thing. It’s another thing entirely to be eviscerated by the fate’s fickle finger. But that’s how I’d describe my afternoon back about three weeks ago. And to think, all I was trying to do was pick up a hire car. It began with a trip across town. This, it seems, is something that is becoming increasingly difficult. Indeed, there are plenty of times the idea of visiting Mars in a home-made rocket ship seems eminently more achievable than getting to Northcote via Punt Road. Surely, the day is not too far off when all traffic finally grinds to a standstill and gridlock sets like concrete. For me, I had to get from Footscray to Ormond. My first mistake was to use an automobile instead of, say, the train or dolphin skis. The fact that the Grand Prix was about to occur meant extra road closures and an added degree of complexity. It was hot. Rain was forecast and, as I tried to weave my way through the traffic, the air was dense with humidity. In addition to major events, I personally find that strange weather makes for strange traffic. I’m not sure why, but odd things happen when the atmosphere is unsettled. It meant cars were travelling at a snail’s pace. I know this for a fact because half way along Queen’s Parade a particularly agile gastropod

mollusc overtook me with a ‘Magic Happens’ bumper sticker on its shell. Sadly, there was nothing very magical about my trip home. It took an entire hour. Somewhere during this journey, it’s possible that my soul left my body because by the time I pulled into the driveway, I felt physically and emotionally depleted. But rather than wallow in my extraordinarily well-developed sense of self-pity, I raced inside to get changed. That’s because I had exactly twenty minutes to walk to the car rental place before it closed for the evening, potentially throwing my plans into disarray. Having quickly ditched my suit, I pulled on a pair of jeans and a shirt and began the two-kilometre trek towards the rental office. Given time was of the essence, my legs moved like pistons. I’d go so far as to describe it as a ‘power-walk’ but strictly in the South Australian sense whereby the supply was intermittent and I had to stop for breaks along the way.

The humid conditions meant that I quickly looked like a wet sponge just as it’s being wrung out. But the clock was against me as I realised for the first time that I might be late. So long as it didn’t start raining, I assured myself, things would be fine. About half way along, I upped the pace. I even started to jog a little. It was at that moment that a bus appeared over the horizon. All I had to do was get to the next bus stop and I’d be saved. Running with the speed and grace of a gazelle if the gazelle in question was wearing jeans and size eleven sneakers, I made the stop just in time for the bus to pick me up. As I touched on with my myki card, I could see the other passengers were somewhat alarmed by my clearly dishevelled state. It mattered not. All that mattered was that I would get to the car rental place in time. Still puffing and at risk of drowning in a puddle of my own sweat, I arrived with barely two minutes to spare. You could tell it was close

to knock-off time, because the guy whose job it is to stand behind the counter was missing, but there was a bag by the door, ready for its owner to appear and go home for the evening. It was clear that I’d need to let them know I was at reception. I cleared my throat. I banged two bin lids together. Finally, I leaned over the counter and used to public address system. Amidst the resulting feedback, a slightly worried young man appeared. At the outset, he looked confused. I told him that I’d come to collect the car. Oddly, he looked only more confused. He asked for my name. He asked for my phone number. He continued to look like someone who’d been handed an especially complex maths problem at the very moment his calculator was confiscated. As I continued to press, he told me they were expecting me earlier. Just as I began to curse my one-hour trip across town, he revealed that they were expecting me around nine

o’clock and, that when I didn’t arrive, they gave my car to someone else. This, of course, violates the entire point making a booking. He glanced lovingly at his bag by the door, knowing that he was now stuck with trying to solve a problem that would still be here once five o’clock rolled around. He then told me they had no other cars. Having expended all my energy getting there on time, I was now faced with the prospect of walking back home again. No sooner had I stepped outside the office than the heavens decided to pour forth their watery bounty. Within moments, I looked like a wet hamster. Water rushed along the gutter and I was soaked to the bone. At one point, I swear I saw a snail with a ‘Magic Happens’ bumper sticker being washed into a drain. Things, I suppose, could be worse. But not by much. stuart@stuartmccullough.com Frankston Times 17 April 2017

SHIRLEY VALENTINE

LEE KERNAGHAN Lee Kernaghan is one of the undisputable alltime greats of Australian country. 2017 marks the 25th anniversary of the launch of Lee’s amazing career and the release of his first chart-busting hit, Boys From The Bush. The iconic song was the first of many number one singles from the classic album The Outback Club, which went on to achieve double platinum certification, win a swag of awards and redefine contemporary Australian country music along the way. Since the release of his mega hit Boys From The Bush, Lee has notched up 34 number one hits on the Australian country music charts, won a staggering 36

Golden Guitars and has sold over two million albums in the local market. In March Lee was inducted into the CMC Hall Of Fame and also released a new album called The 25th Anniversary Album which features gust appearances from some of Australia’s great country artists including John Williamson, Troy Cassar-Daley, Kasey Chambers and The McClymonts to name a few. On the same week as the album release he performed at CMC Rocks QLD to a sold out 20,000 strong audience and deleivered a blistering show that set the bar very high for the American supergroup Dixie Chicks to follow.

Lee Kernaghan’s Boys From The Bush 25th Anniversary Tour is guaranteed to be one of the most sought after tickets of 2017. The concert will cover 25 years of smash hits and will also feature songs from Lee’s new 25th Anniversary Album. Fans are encouraged to book tickets early to secure their place to celebrate this amazing career milestone of 25 years with Lee at what will be a very special musical event. Wednesday 3rd May. 7.30pm. Frankston Arts Centre. Special Guests: The Wolfe Brothers & Christie Lamb Book now on www.thefac. com.au | 03 9784 1060

With much humour, warmth, sympathy, human insight and a great deal of empathy for his female protagonist, playwright Willy Russell brilliantly shows Shirley breaking out of the mould in which she was cast by society. “This play is a modern classic and its theme of achieving your full potential remains universal and very relevant today.” Denny Lawrence, Director Shirley Valentine is a wonderfully entertaining monologue by a 42-year-old Liverpool mother whose selfesteem has been battered by school, marriage and life in general. When her best friend wins a Greek vacation for two, Shirley grasps the chance to head for the sun, to re-find herself, follow her dreams and to get a new lease on life. Shirley Valentine won the award for Best Comedy at the 1988 Laurence Olivier Awards. This production stars the talented and vibrant Mandi Lodge of Busting Out, Menopause The Musical and Always...Patsy

Stonecats get the chocolates PENINSULA LEAGUE

By Toe Punt FRANKSTON YCW got the chocolates on Good Friday against Mt Eliza and once again stamped themselves as the team to beat in Peninsula Division. Billed as the grand final replay, the Stonecats completely controlled the game for all but five minutes in the second quarter when Mt Eliza kicked three unanswered goals to open up a 19 point break. By the end of the first term, the Redlegs didn’t add to their onslaught while the Stonecats dominated and booted 4.8 to lead by 12 points at the big break. The margin was 12 points at three quarter time before YCW broke the shackles and went on to record a 10.14 (74) to 6.8 (44) victory. The win meant that after two rounds, YCW and Pines are the only two sides with two wins. Only Chelsea and Langwarrin are without at least one win, while six teams have one win and one loss. It shows the evenness of the competition in 2017. The Stonecats went into the match with six of their VFL-listed players, including Lachy Wallace and Matt LaFontaine (Collingwood), Anthony Bruhn and Anthony Barry (Footscray), BJ Credlin (Richmond) and Ryan Santon (Sandringham). On the other side of the ledger, they were missing Christian Ongarello (hamstring), Michael Debenham, Sam

Widdowson, Ricky Morris and David Bodley. Coach Wayne Capp told the RPP Footy Show on Saturday morning that the club expected to see a bit of Wallace, LaFontaine, Bruhn, Santon and Credlin throughout the season. “When the AFL lists are strong, that means the VFL lists are strong too of AFL-listed players, so we might get those five more often than not,” Capp said. “Bundy is a two-time premiership player at Footscray so I doubt we’ll see a lot of him, while (other VFL listed players) Lachy Williams and Jake

Lovett will spend most of the year in the VFL,” Capp said. Mt Eliza went into the match without Grant Goodall, Aaron Dunne, Karl Lombardozzi and Darren Booth, while Shaun Knott dominated in the reserves. Rohan Heasley also went down with a hamstring injury early in the match. Goodall was a massive loss, leaving Lillie and an undersized James Anwyl to do battle with Ash Eames and monster kid Macklin Raine, who stands 203cm and is pushing 120kgs. BJ Credlin carved up Justin Van Unen, keeping him goalless and under a handful of touches. Shane Tennant

was outstanding for the Redlegs but he looked proppy after injuring his knee. In a team full of stars, YCW defender Riley Hodson goes under the radar but the kid is a jet, while Luke Paynter is another emerging star for the Stonecats. Fin Bayne was a standout for the Redlegs and skipper Sam Gill and Jay Neratzoglou were resilient in defence. Langwarrin has kicked just seven goals in two matches after again being restricted to just two goals against Pines on Saturday. The Kangaroos booted 1.5 to Pines’ 2.3 in the opening term before running out of steam and being held to 1.2 in three quarters as Pines ran out 13.20 (98) to 2.7 (19) winners. Aaron Edwards booted five goals and Shane Waterstone three for the Pythons while Lachy Marshall played his best game for his new club. Blake Harkness, Shane Paterson and Sean Herdman were the best of the Kangas. Mornington and Karingal played an entertaining game at Frankston Park, the Doggies getting the job done 14.13 (97) to 11.7 (73). Central Highlands recruit Peter McGettigan booted four goals for the Dogs and Eastern Football League recruit Xavier Barry-Murphy dominated for the second week in a row. Brad Harvey and Joel Miller were also outstanding contributors for the Dogs. Although the Dogs opened up a handsome lead on a number of occa-

sions, the Bulls just never went away. Jake Kelly was clearly the Bulls best with four goals while Duncan Proud and Luke Van Raay showed tremendous leadership. After being put through unwarranted and never seen before grief from Devon Meadows FC (three clearance knock-backs and two meetings with the committee), Steve Mihevc was finally cleared last Monday night and celebrated with a strong performance in his new colours. Seaford had 37 scoring shots against Chelsea on Saturday at Miles Reserves and won 19.18 (132) to 7.8 (50). Tom Shaw booted four goals and a further 10 players contributed on the scoreboard while Kyle Matthews, Nick Shannon and Rourke Fischer shone. Simon Mitchelhill was again Chelsea’s best, while Daly Shannon and Jack Francis were strong performers also. Bonbeach controlled most of the match against Edithvale-Aspendale, winning 10.11 (71) to 6.12 (48). The Sharks led by five points at the first change before extending that lead to 19 at half time and 21 at three quarter time. Trent Dennis-Lane found his rhythm and finished with four goals for the Sharks while Jackson Casey, Owen Hulet and Dylan Jones were again among the best. Brent Bowden, Craig Wray and Timmy Mannix were the best of the Eagles.

Big, bad, bustling Barry kicks the winner NEPEAN LEAGUE By Toe Punt FORMER Sydney Swans premiership captain Barry Hall booted eight goals for Pearcedale in its thrilling five point victory against Frankston Bombers on Saturday. ‘Big, bad, bustling’ Barry lived up to all the hype and excitement, putting the Dales in front after converting a right foot snap with less than a minute left in the match. It was a fitting conclusion to what was a high-quality contest. Pearcedale led for much of the afternoon, thanks largely to the conversion of Hall, who booted his eight goals from just eight kicks. The final score was 18.3 (111) to 15.16 (106). A rightfully jubilant coach Leigh Stewart told the RPP Footy Show on Saturday morning that Hall was well worth the investment. “To be fair, Barry was the difference between the sides,” Stewart said. “What he and Daniel Kerr (former West Coast Eagles star who played for Pearcedale in round one) were able to do was the give the whole group something to really look forward to during a tough pre-season. “The whole list had a spring in their step and the club was and still is buzzing,” Stewart said. An estimated crowd of more than 2500 people turned up to Pearcedale to watch the match, while it is estimated that the club would turn over more than $40,000 for the day. Hall captivated a packed luncheon for more than an hour prior to the match, then stayed around after the game to

take photographs with players, supporters and most importantly, the kids. The cost to have Barry Hall was more than $10,000, however, if you were at Pearcedale Football Club on Good Friday, you would have locked him in for next season immediately. It would be unfair to say the day was all about Hall though. Luke Dalmau, who skippered the Stingrays last season, was exceptional for the Dales, as was Harry Prior, who dominated two Frankston Bombers ruckman, including Ryan Kitchen. Matt Cottrell was a clear winner on the day for the Dales too, as was Daniel Heijden and Laughlin Cowell. Glenn Anderson also added another three goals to his four last week. Alex Harnett against his old side was clearly Frankston’s best, although he

wasn’t listed in the team’s best. If the loss against a side that didn’t make the five last year was bad enough for Frankston, in worst news coach Beau Muston left the field after injuring his knee. He will have scans this week to assess the full damage. In the traditional Easter Saturday clash, a full house watched as Sorrento wore down and eventually smashed Dromana by almost 10 goals, 18.22 (130) to 10.14 (74). While the day belonged to the Sharks, the story was all about Dromana. The Tigers have been hammered by two teams expected to go deep into the finals by 10 goals (Frankston in round one). Sam Fowler was the only Dromana forward who looked dangerous and he won’t be sited for much of the season

as he’s VFL listed. Beau Cosson didn’t take his place with foot soreness. Billy Quigley too looked lively in attack but it is believed he is heading to the UK to play cricket. Ruckman Rory Gregg was the best of the Tigers, while seasoned campaigners Rikki Johnston and Adam Hunter were also outstanding. Recruit Ryan Smyth restricted the dangerous Leigh Poholke to two goals in three quarters after he kicked three in the first quarter. Daniel Guerts left the field in the first quarter with what appeared to be a serious knee injury. Sorrento’s relentless pressure and disciplined structures just wore down Dromana after an even start to the match. It was the kids that really shone for the Sharks with Shannon Gladman getting best on ground, while Zac Byrns, James Brigden, Danny Stephenson and Chad Harris dominated. Troy Schwarze was at his best and Luke Tapscott and James Hallahan had a heap of it also. Chris Dawes was missing with a hamstring injury but might be a chance against Rye this week, while Tom Langford played in the reserves because it would have pushed their points over the limit. Sorrento coach Nick Jewell said having quality players in the reserves “was a nice problem to have”. “We have players who wanted to come to the footy club and they are all aware of the situation,” Jewell said. “The reality is though that you rarely have your best team on the park consistently, so we don’t see it being a real problem. “Tom Langford missed yesterday but will spend most of his time at Rich-

mond and when Chris (Dawes) is right then we’ll have to make that call. “The club is in a really strong position and we’d rather have a points issue than an injury issue,” he said. It was a bumper day for the Sorrento Football Club, who had 180 people at their luncheon at $90 per head and sold 100 slabs of beer before the end of the match. Hastings booted six goals to one to turn a 10 point deficit into a 26 point victory against Devon Meadows, winning 13.19 (97) to 10.11 (71). Steven Robb was exceptional with three goals and Mark Devereaux was at his best. Despite the win, it was again very unconvincing. They trailed Rye in round one by 37 points halfway through the second quarter and trailed Devon all day on Saturday. Both Rye and Devon are expected to finish in the bottom three – there are some early concerns for the Blues. In the traditional Rosebud v Rye clash, the Buds had 41 scoring shots to Rye’s 11 and won by 100 points, 21.20 (146) to 7.4 (46). Keegan Downie was clearly the best player on the ground with five goals and Greg Bentley was at his very best too. Bad news for Rye was the rib injury to star Adam Kirkwood. On Good Friday, Andres Everitt booted four goals for Somerville and Tim McGenniss and Adrian Speedy dominated in the their 19.17 (131) to 10.6 (66) win against Tyabb. The first quarter was even before the Eagles booted 16 goals to seven after the change. Jordan Pollard was again the best for the Yabbies. Frankston Times 17 April 2017

Hine no show, Skye’s English import arrives SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie WHILE Mornington has been forced to call off the Josh Hine deal Skye United was welcoming the arrival of English recruit Jacob Scotte-Hatherly. Skye United officials greeted the 22-year-old midfielder at Melbourne Airport last Wednesday night and are excited about what he could bring to the State 3 South-East side. Scotte-Hatherly’s last club was Bovey Tracey AFC in Division 1 East of the South West Peninsula League and the attacking midfielder from Newton Abbot in South Devon has won two player-of-the-match awards in just nine appearances this season after joining the club in late December. He has also played for Western League Premier Division club Buckland Athletic and has had a four-year stint with the University of Jamestown in North Dakota. While in the US he also played with Wisconsin-based Maddison 56ers and Little Rock Rangers from Arkansas. Skye United followed in the footsteps of Peninsula Strikers and Casey Comets by contacting football agency Soccer Smart Ltd, which holds trials in the UK, Europe and the US for players wanting to play overseas. “We identified a gap in our playing group and we felt that the local market was significantly out of our financial reach to be honest,” said Skye vicepresident Stuart Lawrence. “We’d heard about other clubs using Soccer Smart plus the company targets clubs anyway and sends speculative emails so when we got one of them I flicked it over to Billy (Armour, senior coach) and asked him if we should look at this option so it all started from there.” The video evidence suggests that Scotte-Hatherly has a fine first touch and good passing skills. He also is a set-piece specialist. He is expected to line up alongside Marcus Collier in Saturday’s home fixture against Middle Park. Meanwhile Salford City striker Hine has failed in his bid to be granted a work visa and has also been denied a holiday visa. The Englishman had been courted by Mornington for months and the club had high hopes of him forming a lethal partnership up front with Ryan Paczkowski. “We’re keeping our options open and we’re having a look for players in different places now,” said Mornington head coach Adam Jamieson. “We’ll probably bring in two or three and release two or three.”

Anderson arrives: Scottish midfielder Craig Anderson.

Scottish midfielder Craig Anderson, 28, is firmly on Baxter’s radar after star striker Mark Pagliarulo was contacted by his former coach at Edinburgh City and told that Anderson is already in Melbourne. Whether or not Anderson wants to play at Baxter remains to be seen but his CV suggests that he would be one of the stars of State 4 South if he did sign and clubs in higher leagues are already showing interest. Anderson has played for Montrose, Forfar Athletic, Berwick Rangers, Civil Service Strollers, Stenhousemuir and Craigroyston and has recently finished a second spell with Whitehill Welfare in the Lowland League. Baxter had its sights set on signing former Langwarrin striker Mikey Turner who quit Peninsula Strikers recently. But Baxter lost out to arch rival Rosebud Heart after Turner failed to turn up at Baxter training last Tuesday and scored for Heart in a practice match two days later. “Mikey agreed to join us last week and now it’s just a process of getting Strikers to deregister him so that we can register him before Saturday’s game,” said Heart head coach Scott

Morrison. “He’s going to form a good combination up front with Dave Greening.” Turner had also attracted the interest of Skye United. The match of the round next weekend is the derby showdown between Langwarrin and Casey Comets at Lawton Park on Saturday afternoon. It was confirmed last week that Langwarrin’s English import Kieron Kenny who returned to the UK last month for family reasons is expected back within the next fortnight and Nick Thorogood is also expected to be available within the same timeframe. Kenny’s former central defensive partner at English club Congleton Town, big George Whiteoak, played for Langy in a practice match last Tuesday night against Berwick City and is likely to be on the bench against Comets. “It’s not going to be easy and Jamie (Skelly, Comets gaffer) won’t be coming down here to give away three points because he’s always got something to prove against us,” said Langy head coach Gus Macleod. Skelly is yet to decide whether or not to use both English striker Ryan Hughes and Canadian teammate Al-

lando Matheson in the starting line-up. If he uses both strikers it’s likely that one will play in a wide role but Skelly also has the option of using conventional wingers with just one big man through the middle. The game is a personal challenge for former Langy stars Alex van Heerwarden and Ray Markley and Skelly expects both players to stand up and be counted. “I guess Alex and Ray will have something to prove in that they want to go back and show that as players they have progressed since they’ve been there and it’s a massive incentive for them to do well against a Langy side that sits on top of the league,” said Skelly. Marce Janneker remains sidelined due to an ankle injury. Comets are close to signing a current NPL central midfielder but if they negotiate his release he won’t be available until May. Social media bragging rights are up for grabs when Peninsula Strikers host Doveton in their State 2 South-East clash at Centenary Park on Saturday. Strikers’ boss Craig Lewis and Doveton goalkeeper Stuart Webster are regular sparring partners on Facebook

where the latter is a serial provocateur. Webster played down the recent capture of former Scottish professional Ryan Stevenson saying that the winless Strikers needed more than the former Hearts star to turn their season around. That may come back to haunt the cocky keeper as Stevenson was expected to arrive this week in time to face the Doves. Lewis was enthusiastic about Stevenson’s signing and pointed to the positive impact it already had on the club. “Since the story about Ryan went all over social media and the Scottish media we’ve had players enquiring about joining us including a 21-yearold from Cowdenbeath, another boy from Kirkintilloch Rob Roy and an NPL player,” said Lewis. Teenage midfielder Emmanuel Brima signed for Strikers last week and the former Bentleigh Greens midfielder will come straight into the matchday squad on Saturday. Strikers are also keeping a close eye on any player movement at Mornington. The wait for an international clearance is over for Frankston Pines defender Cedric Permal whose Mauritian club Cercle de Joachim has cleared him in time to face Doncaster Rovers at Monterey Reserve on Saturday. Permal, 25, has been capped 12 times by Mauritius. But Mauritian international teammate Christopher L’Enclume was waiting to be cleared as we went to press. As soon as 26-year-old striker L’Enclume is cleared Pines will focus on bringing over attacking midfielder Fabrice Pithia and striker Dwayne Diamond-Heerah. Two other Mauritian internationals, striker Adrien Botlar and left back or defensive midfielder Damien Balisson are expected in July. This weekend’s games: SATURDAY, 3pm: Mornington v Clifton Hill (Dallas Brooks Park), Langwarrin v Casey Comets (Lawton Park), Peninsula Strikers v Doveton (Centenary Park), Frankston Pines v Doncaster Rovers (Monterey Reserve), Skye Utd v Middle Park (Skye Recreation Reserve), Baxter v Dandenong Sth (Baxter Park), Rosebud Heart v Bayside Argonauts (Truemans Road Recreation Reserve), Chelsea v Somerville Eagles (Edithvale Recreation Reserve). SUNDAY, 3pm: Seaford Utd v Nth Caulfield (North Seaford Reserve).

Ex-Sydney trainer reignites career on Peninsula By Ben Triandafillou SINCE leaving the hustle and bustle of his Randwick training complex in 2014, Grahame Begg has begun to reemerge onto the racing scene with his boutique stable located at Pinecliff, Mt Eliza. Begg earnt his first winning double since returning to racing, at Cranbourne on the 31 March with local jockeys, Jake Noonan and Jamie Mott, guiding Woman in Red and Phoenix Park to victory. The double is a testament to Begg’s horsemanship and although he was unable to attend the meeting, said that it was a step in the right direction. “I was at the Sydney Easter yearling sale purchasing two horses for clients and wasn’t able to make it but I was thrilled when I got the news and for the jockeys to be local boys is a bonus,” Begg said. “The next step will be to eventually get a winner in town.” Begg’s stable of 12, which consists of mainly unraced thoroughbreds, has been highly successful with their placement of runners, with almost every second runner finishing in the first three. Grahame’s training career spans 25 years with 14 Group One victories from star thoroughbreds such as All Silent, Ilovethiscity and Secret

Admirer. Grahame handled some of Australia’s best thoroughbreds, including the 1984 Australian Horse of the Year, Emancipation, when learning the trade from his father, a legendary Hall of Fame trainer, Neville Begg. The tiresome routine and endless loop of what many trainers face became too much for Begg and so he decided to close his Sydney operations in 2014. “I had just had enough of the day in-day out routine, so I decided to take a break,” Begg said. “After about 15 months I decided it was time to come back and a good friend, Anthony Freedman, told me about the opening here at Pinecliff.” “The set-up here is brilliant and it’s a lot calmer than it was in Sydney.” Grahame says he continues the demanding career as a horse trainer in hopes to one day have the privilege of training another gifted thoroughbred. “We start and end the day cleaning out the stables but we continue our routine in hopes to one day get the opportunity to train the next best thing, that one remarkable animal.” Begg will now be looking to continue his success and expand the stables training operations in the coming months.

Peninsula boxers crowned nations best By Ben Triandafillou PENINSULA Boxing has been rewarded with two gold medals after a flawless performance at the 2017 Australian Boxing Championships in South Australia on April 8. Peninsula Boxing went undefeated at the national championships with the Victorian representatives Tyla McDonald and Jason Whateley triumphing in their respected divisions. Tyla McDonald, 13, added to her impressive record defeating last year’s national champion, Tameriah Barney-Sandy, in the final round of the ‘Schoolgirls Division’. Jason Whateley, showed his class at the Elite World Games breezing through the opening rounds of the 91kg division and earning gold, defeating fellow Victorian, Adrian Paoletti, in the final. Peninsula Boxing head coach, Marcos Amado, said that the result is recognition of the athletes continuous training and constant hard work. “It takes a lot of commitment and dedication to reach a high standard,” Amado said. “We really make sure that we are training with a purpose and have a goal in mind otherwise it doesn’t work, you can’t do it aimlessly.” The training has clearly paid off for Peninsula Boxing as they returned home as

the only gym in Victoria with two gold medals. Amado said that the gym rallies behind their athletes when they have an important fight coming up. “It’s an individual sport but it’s been a team effort,” Amado said. “We all chip in to help out our boxers and with one person being successful out of the gym, the whole gym feels the success.” Tyla was the only female in Victoria to earn a gold medal at the nationals and will now be looking to head to Canberra for an AIS Boxing Camp. “She could go five or six months without getting a fight but we want to keep her active and she’s flying at the moment so we might as well strike while the iron’s hot,” Amado said. Whateley has taken his record to five wins from five fights since joining Amado at Peninsula Boxing and will be attempting to qualify for the Commonwealth Games later in November. “He’s at the pinnacle of boxing and to have five fights already for a 91kg boxer is massive,” Amado said. Whateley will fly over to Poland for the Feliks Stamm tournament in four weeks before heading to the OCBC Oceania Confederation Boxing Championships in June.

Mornington junior footballers tour New Zealand By Ben Triandafillou THE Mornington Peninsula Junior Football League (MPJFL) will join the 2017 New Zealand Football Tour for the first time by themselves under the name, ‘The BlueScope Steelers’. The MPJFL has competed in the tour for the past two years with the Frankston football league but will this year be tackling the tour on their own. The teams will leave for Wellington on April 21 for their five-day tour which will be held over the ANZAC Day weekend. MPJFL president, Andrew Souter, said that it has been six weeks of hard work by both AFL New Zealand and the MPJFL representatives but it will be worth it for the players to have this opportunity. The BlueScope Steelers will take their youth girls side and an under-16 boy’s side to face the AFL New Zealand Academy Level Two (youth boys) and the New Zealand Kahu Youth Girls. Representatives from the southeast football league will also be joining the MPJFL BlueScope Steelers on the tour. “It’s a fantastic opportunity for our players to represent the league,” Souter said. “We have a dawn service on the final day to remember the ANZAC’s but we will also be interacting and embracing the New Zealand culture, so it’s a real learning experience.” The junior footballers will get to show their talent in four matches at Hutt Park and the Westpac Stadium. The tour follows a successful trip to Tasmania where the MPJFL youth girls and under-16 boy’s side got the chance to sing their song loud and proud with victories over Tassie.

Sliz, Skye sign up for Wings for Life By Craig MacKenzie FORMER top jockey Gemma Sliz and 16 players, administrators and supporters from Skye United soccer club will compete in the 2017 Wings for Life World Run next month. The event takes place on Sunday 7 May at 11am UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) which translates to 9pm at night in Melbourne and all proceeds go towards spinal cord research. Across its first three editions (2014, 2015, 2016), the Wings for Life World Run attracted more than 280,000 people from 193 nationalities running in around 40 countries across six continents. They raised 13.8 million euros while covering more than 2.8 million kilometres. The Melbourne event starts at Patterson Reserve in Hawthorn East and continues along the Monash Freeway eastbound which will be cordoned off during the run. A half hour after the race starts, a moving finish line, the Catcher Car, chases runners along the course, gradually getting faster until each one is caught. The first runners passed after a few kilometres are the first to celebrate their accomplishments, while the last man and woman to be caught are declared Global Champions. Participants pay an entry fee of either $66 (if registered before 31 March) or $71.50 and 100 per cent of monies raised goes directly to lifechanging spinal cord research projects and clinical trials at renowned universities and institutes worldwide.

Wings for Life: Gemma Sliz (front row, far right) and some of the Skye United team competing in the Wings for Life World Run. Above, Gemma Sliz and 2004 Auckland Cup winner Upsetthym.

It is a cause dear to Sliz’s heart as she would have ridden in the 2004 Melbourne Cup but for a fall that left her with serious spinal injuries and eventually forced her to quit a sport she loved deeply. In January 2004 Sliz was the toast of New Zealand racing after guiding Upsetthym to victory in the Group 1 Auckland Cup. In September of the same year a fall at Ruakaka left the champion appren-

tice with three broken vertebrae in her lower back, broken ribs and broken bones in a foot. It also left her wondering if she would ever walk again. “I wasn’t allowed to move for six weeks and although my mind knew what to do my body couldn’t do it so I had to learn to walk again,” said Sliz. “It was quite a hard time,” she says in an understated manner.

She returned to racing after a lengthy rehabilitation but the emotional and physical scars remained. “It takes its toll on you both mentally and physically and I had to stop riding, not just for my own safety but for the safety of the horses and the other jockeys. “It’s a very demanding sport. You are riding a 500 kilogram animal travelling at around 70 kilometres an hour and there are no seatbelts or roll

bars so when you hit the ground you hit it with a lot of force. “You have to make split-second decisions and if you start second guessing yourself you are putting everyone in danger and that’s what happened to me so I had to stop riding.” Sliz has friends who haven’t been so fortunate and she is competing in the Wings for Life event for the third time.
