Drinks ‘dumped’ FRANKSTON is one of eight councils across Victoria participating in the first stage of the VicHealth Water in Sports grant program to promote “healthy choices” at sports club canteens and kiosks. Council will receive $84,000 in funding over two years to work with Peninsula Health to increase “availability, access and promotion of healthy drinks at council-owned sport and recreation facilities alongside local sporting clubs” (“Sugary drinks ‘out of sight’”, The Times 12/2/18). The Water in Sports initiative was officially launched in Frankston last Tuesday (13 February) at Ballam Park South Pavilion. Council will work from April with sports clubs and centres to downplay the promotion of sugary soft drinks in favour of healthier water.

Train ‘pain’ on line Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au NEWLY available data proves what long-suffering Frankston line commuters have often suspected — the train line is the most unreliable across the Melbourne metropolitan network. Public Transport Victoria figures released last week under a new online system aimed at greater transparency around train running times.

The statistics showed passengers on the Frankston line copped 862 cancelled train services in the past 12 months or so from 2 January 2017 until 31 January this year. A further 634 trains that ran skipped scheduled stops at stations along the line during the same period. The PTV figures reveal trains on the Frankston line were cancelled more often than on any other metropolitan rail lines.

Despite the frustrations for commuters, 98.4 per cent of train services did arrive and 89.4 per cent were on time although this was below the network average of 91.7 per cent running on time. Metro Trains passengers on the Cranbourne, Lilydale and Pakenham lines also faced above average delays and cancellations. PTV CEO Jeroen Weimar said the new online statistics tool offers greater

transparency about meeting contract targets. Mr Weimar said last month’s statistics showed Metro Trains ran 92.3 per cent of its services on time despite soaring temperatures potentially disrupting the network. “January saw the operators deal with the dual challenges of prolonged periods of hot weather and major upgrade works on our road and rail networks. Despite these challenges, both Yarra Trams and

Metro managed to deliver service levels above the targets in the new franchise agreements,” he said in a statement. “With detailed planning and close coordination across agencies and operators, we successfully ensured people could still access public transport to get them to their destination during as important upgrade works were carried out across the network, with more than 900,000 trips taken on our replacement buses in January alone.” Continued Page 6

Champ’s feats not forgotten Safe harbour gets CHAMPION boxer Johnny Famechon is finding a newfound appreciation of his sporting achievements among younger generations in the wake of the unveiling of a sculpture in his likeness and honour at Frankston’s Ballam Park. The 72-year-old former boxer visited the Mt Eliza Boxing Centre late last month after the statue’s official unveiling and was greeted with lots of questions from children about his boxing heyday in the late 1960s when Famechon was a champion of the world. The longtime Frankston resident has inspired and mentored young people since retiring from boxing in 1970, the year after taking out the World Featherweight Championship against Cuban Jose Legra and the year he defended the title twice in bouts against Japan’s Fighting Harada. Mt Eliza Boxing Centre owner Ron Smith said he and wife Sharyn who co-manages the gym were happy to see the children know about Famechon’s boxing prowess. “He visited during a school holiday program to teach kids about boxing so John was quite enthused about coming along to have some input,” Smith said. “When people ask him serious questions about boxing training and health he is very on the ball. “He was very impressed by the level of some of the kids there.” Famechon’s wife, Glenys, said Smith visits Famechon at home once a week to work of physio and boxing training to keep the champ

on his feet. Famechon suffered brain injuries after being hit by a car while jogging in Sydney 25 years ago. Wife Glenys said Smith does “wonderful work” keeping children who visit the Mt Eliza gym fit and health. “Ron also visits John at home and puts him through his paces out of the goodness of his heart including legwork to keep John’s fitness up,” she said. “He’s done that for about seven years and he and his wife are a great help to John.” The Ballam Park 2.5-high bronze sculpture of the boxing champ in his youthful pomp, installed after an im-

pressive $180,000 fundraising effort over several years by boxing fans, now stands as a fitting testament to Famechon’s feats. Famechon was inducted into the Australian National Boxing Hall of Fame in 2003 and was elevated to Legend status in 2012. Smith says the boxing fitness training is not just for children who want to step into the ring. “I try mainly to teach them about self-respect and not getting into fights. I’ve found over the years that once they have learned boxing or martial arts they can walk away from idiots at parties and all that.” Neil Walker

ENVIRONMENTAL investigations will begin with a view to building a safe boat harbour for vessels during heavy weather at Olivers Hill. Federal Dunkley Liberal MP Chris Crewther announced this month that stage one of a project to build a safe boat refuge will involve “hydrological, planning and other environmental studies. The studies will determine the further detail for stage two of the project, being the construction of the project”. A federal grant of $500,000 will go towards the studies and part of the construction of the harbour at Olivers Hill. Mr Crewther said The Safe Boat Refuge will include safety for small recreation craft and police boats in heavy weather, and a secure permanent mooring in 2-3 metres depth for the Frankston Volunteer Coast Guard rescue vessel, and potentially police boats. Mr Crewther told The Times that council will take the lead on the project and asked for the $500,000 before the 2016 federal election to start the project. He said KBR Commercial will design a concept plan by July at the latest and the council construction tender will then go out to market.

Construction is planned to begin by May 2019. The safe boat harbour will include a breakwater with access for emergency vehicles, plus lighting and CCTV. Stage one including hydrological studies and the concept plan will cost $253,000 and the remainder of the $500,000 will go towards construction when the scope of the project is known. The safe boat refuge will be used by the Frankston Coast Guard, Water Police, That’s The Thing About Fishing volunteers, Frankston Surf Life Saving Club members and recreational boaters. “Council will co-contribute to the project as required depending on the length of the breakwater,” Mr Crewther said. “It really depends what is needed to protect the boat ramp there and to provide a permanent mooring opportunity for the Coast Guard and Water Police.” Environmental studies will also be a factor in the scope of the safe harbour, Mr Crewther said. The safe boat refuge is separate from a long-floated idea to build a $38-$80 million marina to be “a regional boating hub”. The marina project is not listed as a strategic priority in council’s 20172021 plan.

Let the joy of kite flying begin! REMEMBER the joy of flying your first kite? The anticipation as it lifted into the air? The spark of magic as you discovered you could actually play with the wind? Well, you can experience it all again at one of Australia’s premier kite events: The Rosebud Kite Festival. On Sunday 11th March, both the young and the young at heart will come together to celebrate the art of kite flying. Visitors can make and fly their own kite courtesy of local outfit; Kites 4 Kids. And alongside the novice kite flying arena, will be the latest designs and displays from a team of internationally acclaimed kite flying professionals with their giant super-sized maxi kite creations. Crowds will be mesmerised by a flotilla of whales, spacemen, flying red and green dragons, and all manner of creatures from the deep. There’ll also be

a display of Australian-themed delta kites, animated designer kites and the extremely agile sport kites. With a jam packed festival program on Sunday 11th March, the fun line-up of live entertainment on the main stage (from 11am – 5pm) will be hosted by the fabulous Frederico Boogie, as well as kids rides and carnival, live bands, circus workshops, wildlife encounters and much more.

Mobile kitchen help gets knocked back Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au A REVEREND named a Citizen of the Year by Frankston Council last year says he is disappointed council will not financially support a mobile kitchen trailer to dish out meals to homeless and disadvantaged people. Rev Angel Roldan attended the monthly public council meeting in January and asked councillors to support a mid-year council budget request to contribute $8000 towards a custom-made trailer for an existing Life-Gate food van. Rev Roldan and wife Pastor Ulli Roldan, co-founders of charity Life-Gate, based in Frankston’s Olsen Street, jointly received Frankston Council’s Citizen of the Year award in January 2017. Councillors were advised by Rev Roldan at the council meeting that the trailer will be a “mobile kitchen” and would mean volunteers can serve more food to the needy and boiling water will no longer be a hazard within the close confines of the Life-Gate van. Life-Gate is trying to raise $36,000 to pay for the mobile kitchen trailer and has pledges of $28,000 from corporate and government sources. After the meeting Rev Roldan told The Times council had approved a $1000 grant to Life-Gate last year that will be put towards the mobile trailer. “I was expecting them to see there is a need in the community,” he said. “I’m very disappointed and it’s just plain bureaucracy to me. “I don’t know why they won’t give any more money towards the project.” Federal Dunkley Liberal MP Chris Crewther promised $11,000 of taxpayers’ money via a stronger communities grant. South East Water and Bayside Shopping Centre have pledged $5000 each. Mt Eliza marketing business Creative Artroom is contributing $2000 and $3500 has been raised by donors in an online GoFundMe campaign. Some councillors at the 29 January meeting voiced concerns about budget processes not been followed in any granting of money to Life-Gate as a result of a last-minute submission to Frankston Council’s mid-year budget review. “The demand has increased because City Life is not offering meals,” Rev Roldan told councillors. “The situation hasn’t got any better in relation to homeless people and people in need.” He said a mobile kitchen trailer would mean Life-Gate volunteers can feed “100 to 120 people” in an evening by travelling between locations rather than “50 or 60” in one spot. He said volunteers will have “more time to relate to the people in need” to find out if they need

more help including counselling or rehabilitation services. Crs Brian Cunial, Sandra Mayer and Michael O’Reilly said they support Life-Gate but could not sanction a one-off payment to the charity as part of the mid-year budget review rather than a separate grant application. Cr Glenn Aitken noted council expects a cash surplus of $3.376 million in the mid-year budget review so believed $8000 towards a “humanitarian group of people” was a cost ratepayers could pay. Cr Kris Bolam, who declared an interest in common but not a conflict of interest as a former director of Life-Gate, said he was disappointed councillors debated over such “a paltry amount of money” compared to the cash surplus. Cr Mayer mentioned monitor Prue Digby, sent in by the Labor state government to report back on “governance issues” when discussing the LifeGate appeal for ratepayers’ money. “I’m just going to make a note of something here for the monitor,” she said at the meeting before describing the Life-Gate submission for money to the mid-year budget review “an anomaly” since it was not “technically” listed on council’s formal agenda for the meeting. “I don’t know if they should have made a submission and I don’t know if they should be taken into account,” Cr Mayer said. The North-East Ward councillor said Life-Gate regularly gets council grants and support for the hire of Frankston Arts Centre’s Cube 37 space for an annual art exhibition with disadvantaged children in partnership with Karingal’s McClelland College. “It’s ad hoc so we’re making a decision on the run where we don’t have all the information and it sets a precedent. We’ll get approached by other organisations that want to skip the queue and not go through the grants program,” Cr Mayer said. “A great organisation, love their work, but just not comfortable doing that [approve money through mid-year budget review].” The mayor Cr Colin Hampton said Cr Bolam’s notice of motion to grant $8000 to Life-Gate lapsed during the debate since it was not formally moved as an alternate amendment. Cr Hampton disregarded a suggestion by council CEO Dennis Hovenden during the debate to adjourn the meeting for 5 minutes to resolve the matter. “No. Why? It’s quite straightforward,” the mayor said. “I trusted in the process,” Cr Bolam said when advised by the mayor at the meeting the notice of motion would not be voted on by councillors.

No cigarette: punched A COCKATOO man smoking under a footbridge on the Frankston foreshore received a fractured cheekbone and other facial injuries when he was set upon by four men, 10.10pm, Sunday 28 January. Detective Senior Constable Mark Garrett, of Frankston CIU, said the man, 41, and a mate were approached by a man who asked for a cigarette. When he refused the man walked away but another man – one of four – approached and said the refusal had caused offence. This prompted all the men to attack the man who was allegedly punched several times in the head before managing to run away and seek help. He was taken by ambulance to The Alfred hospital for treatment. A 17-year-old male was charged with assault over the incident and remanded to a children’s court at a later date. He is alleged to have been involved in at least seven drunken assaults and robberies, several on Frankston foreshore on Australia Day, in which frightened youngsters were threatened with violence if they refused to hand over wallets and phones. Detective Senior Constable Shane Smith, of Frankston CIU, said most of the robberies were “senseless” as only one of five stolen phones was kept by the thieves and one was thrown into Kananook Creek. He said it was also distressing for parents to see their children frightened. Three others with the 17-year-old are of Pacific Islander appearance. Detective Garrett said CCTV showed many people out on the beach at the entrance to the creek on the hot night. He is appealing for anyone with information to contact him at Frankston CIU 9784 5529 or Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

384 years of togetherness

Line’s train pain revealed Continued from Page 1 On the connecting Stony Point line 4.8 per cent of train services were cancelled from 2 January 2017 until 31 January this year compared to a 1.1 per cent cancellation rate on the Frankston line. The Frankston line cancellations may make state Labor MPs in the marginal sandbelt seats of Frankston (Paul Edbrooke), Carrum (Sonya Kilkenny), Mordialloc (Tim Richardson) and Bentleigh (Nick Staikos) nervous ahead of the upcoming state election in November. The four sets swung from Liberal to Labor at the 2014 election and could be the key to winning government for both the Labor Party and Liberal National Coalition. Train service performance results going back to 2001 showing service delays and cancellations also when Coalition state governments were in power are now available at PTV’s website.

LOVE is in the air at Baptcare’s Peninsula View Community in Moorooduc Highway, Frankston South. Nine couples living in the aged care community have been married a total of 384 years. Peninsula View has provision for couples to stay together, and encourages them to support one another during the sometimes-difficult transition into residential aged care, communications officer Claire Macuz said. Jack and Dot Cayless have been married for 71 years – slightly longer than Gwen and Doug Hildebrand who have been together for 70 years. The recent romance of Margaret Grey and Francis Thompson proves that love has no bounds, with the couple enjoying their first year together after a Commitment Ceremony early last year. Other couples at the community having been together for between 10 and 66 years, proving Peninsula View is a great place for elderly couples, Ms Macuz said.

Roundabout way to safety

Works overdue: A roundabout is being built at the Robinsons RoadWestern Port Highway intersection to improve “the most dangerous road on the peninsula”. Pictures: Gary Sissons

WITH a recent history that includes 17 crashes requiring emergency services, the intersection of Western Port Highway and Robinsons Road, Langwarrin, is receiving an overdue upgrade. A roundabout at the intersection is expected to be completed in June. Of the 17 crashes during the five years to June 2015, 14 involved cross traffic which resulted in seven serious injuries and two fatalities – one involving 19-year-old Olivia Steadman-Meconi, of Mt Eliza, who crashed in May, 2015.

VicRoads’ website says. In the first stage, a section of Robinsons Road (West) entering from Western Port Highway will be closed for about eight weeks from late January. Police are urging drivers to note the changed traffic conditions in the area during the building of the roundabout, citing short-term pain for long-term gain. “The end result will be a much safer intersection for everyone travelling through it,” they said.

Patterson River survey say THE Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) is seeking community feedback on how they use the Patterson River area, and how it should be transformed. DELWP is working to create a concept plan that will outline ways to improve the Patterson River infrastructure and facilities. “The plan will guide future development and funding proposals along the land adjourning the river,” DELWP land and built environment program manager John Downs said. “The area the project is looking at is between the Frankston train line and the Mornington Peninsula Freeway and includes the National Water Sports Centre. “This project will address a number of issues in the area, as well as explore the area’s future potential. “In the lower precinct, the boat ramp area is known to


suffer congestion in peak boating and fishing periods. This has been causing issues not only for boat-ramp users and anglers but also those who use the area for cycling and walking. “In the upper precinct, The National Water Sports Centre has the potential to be a high-quality recreational land and water sports facility, but a coordinated plan for the site’s development has yet to be developed. “We are looking forward to hearing from the community, who will play an integral part of this project,” Mr Downs said. The survey is open until 1 March. To complete the survey and find out more information on the project, see engage.vic.gov.au/patterson-riverconcept-plan online or call The final concept plan is anticipated to be released at the end of June.

Baxter prepares for centenary BAXTER will celebrate its centenary on Sunday 6 May and, to mark the occasion, Baxter Residents and Traders Progress Action Committee will hold a shindig at Baxter Primary School on Sunday 18 March. All proceeds will go to the school. The event will honour the renaming of Mornington Junction, Baxter’s Flat, as Baxter after Captain Benjamin Baxter the original settler. “The residents’ and traders’ committee, parents group and school council, as well as residents and businesses, are working hard to ensure this will be a great day for all,” BRATPAC secretary Gail Forbes said. A mural being painted by Melbourne Murals on the front of the Telstra Baxter Exchange on BaxterTooradin Road depicting the history of Baxter is creating a lot of interest. It will be officially opened as part of the celebration week beginning 11 March. There was an early hiccup to the mural when the artists painted the likeness of American civil war soldier Benjamin Baxter instead of Victoria’s Captain Benjamin Baxter. The mistake was painted over and replaced with the correct portrait within hours of it being exposed on social media. Another cause for celebration is the 100th birthday of Baxter resident Alfonso, who has been invited to “cut the birthday cake” on 18 March, Ms Forbes said. “We have also been contacted by relatives of John Sage, of Sage’s Cottage fame, who are interested in assisting with their family history, and

former residents who were around when Golf Links Rd was a dirt track, and Baxter Primary School was next to Mulberry Hill. Their memories will be included in our Baxter story display.” Wallara Australia, the new owners of Sages Cottage, have just filmed the history of Sages Cottage and it is hoped footage will be available on the day of the event. Despite being a small community, Baxter has a colourful history, Ms Forbes said. Mulberry Hill, home

to the artistic Lindsay family, played host to many noted artists and famous visitors from overseas. Baxter also had its own speedway on which many highly regarded racing car drivers competed. Motorcycles and midget cars also raced there. Nevil Shute, author of On the Beach and A Town like Alice, bought property in Baxter in the 1950s and, despite some referring to the location of the property as being Langwarrin, the town is determined to “claim him”, Ms Forbes said.

Other well-known former residents include Diane Dunleavy, of Grubby and Dee Dee fame, now on 3AW, who grew up in Baxter and went to Baxter Primary School, and daredevil rider Blake “Bilko” Williams, with Nitro Circus, who has travelled the world stunt riding. “At the end of the day, we have something to shout about – not to forget the township’s founder was believed to be the first white man to settle on the Mornington Peninsula,” Ms Forbes said.

A WHITE Renault van which ran into the rear of the car in front on Bungower Road, Mornington, caused a nose-totail “concertina” collision which damaged six cars. Leading Senior Constable Greg Wolfe, of Somerville Highway Patrol, said the van driver, 48, of Donvale, was later charged with failing to stay a sufficient distance behind the vehicle in front, 8.50am, Wednesday 7 February. He received a $238 fine and lost one demerit point. The accident occurred between Derril Rd and Moorooduc Highway. Five of the cars were described as being extensively damaged and one with minor damage. Two drivers were taken to Frankston Hospital for treatment. “Traffic builds up quickly on these roads, especially at that time of the morning, and motorists really need to concentrate,” Leading Senior Constable Wolfe said. “They have to watch out for cars in front – especially near roundabouts.” In another incident, drivers travelling too close to the car in front were left to count the cost after the lead car braked on Eastlink, just north of Thompsons Road, Saturday morning, 27 January. Police said seven cars were damaged and, of the 29 occupants, four received minor injuries. Many of the cars had to be towed away causing further traffic disruption. Police investigating the incident are seeking dash-cam footage. Anyone who can assist is asked to call Somerville police 5978 1358. “Rear-end collisions are the most common sort that we attend, and they are relatively easy to prevent,” Leading Senior Constable Wolfe said. “He said rear-end collisions could result in on-the-spot fines or charges of careless driving and an appearance in court.

A LONG-STANDING passion for helping people has led John Pachiyannis to become the first business owner of Specsavers Audiology in the Frankston area which opens to customers this week offering hearing care and hearing aids. “Seeing the tears of joy in my patient’s eyes when they come to the realisation of what they’ve been missing is what I love most about my job,” John said. “In my personal experience, I have seen so many cases where a person’s hearing loss can affect their physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. Often people unconsciously start to avoid social situations as they feel embarrassed that they can’t hear properly, this leads to a loss of self-confidence.” With 13 years of experience as an audiology professional, John says he is most looking forward to providing local Frankston residents with the latest hearing aid technology at a great low price. “At the moment it takes most Australians 7-10 years to acknowledge they have hearing loss before they do anything to help it – if they do anything at all. We’re encouraging locals to get their hearing checked regularly as wearing hearing aids can actually slow the decline of hearing loss over the long term,” John said.

John is encouraging all locals who might have concerns about their hearing, to book a free 15-minute hearing check. “One in six Australians experience hearing loss, yet only one in three does anything about it.” If you feel like your hearing isn’t as good as it should be Specsavers Frankston are taking bookings for free 15-minute hearing checks. If further testing is required, comprehensive hearing assessments are being offered for $49. If you require hearing assistance as a result, Specsavers has a range of hearing aids designed and built by leading manufacturers, which feature cutting-edge innovations in hearing assistance. A pair of hearing aids at Specsavers starts at $1495. Specsavers Audiology is accredited as a qualified hearing service provider by the Australian Government Hearing Services Program, which provides eligible people with access to hearing services such as hearing assessments, subsidised hearing aids and aftercare services. If you think you might be eligible, you can apply for the Australian Government Hearing Services Program online or via post. For more information or to book a free 15-minute hearing test, see specsavers.com.au/hearing or call Specsavers Frankston on 9783 4013.

There’s no questioning the facts. Bushfires can start quickly and threaten lives within minutes. When it comes to fire, what you need to do is black and white. Check Fire Danger Ratings in your district daily, and monitor conditions. Most bushfire deaths happen close to home, so on high-risk fire days, leaving early, before a fire starts, is always the safest option.

Home safe: Pensioner Larry has found a place to live in return for helping out his landlord. Picture: Yanni

Happy ending follows housing plea A PENSIONER’S fears that he could be evicted from his fourth rental property in as many years struck a chord with readers – and it seems help is at hand. Larry (surname withheld) said he feared becoming homeless if the new owners of his Hastings unit decided to renovate or move in themselves – or perhaps re-let it at a higher rental. Either way he would be forced to look for a new home – with the few available being offered at rents he could not afford (“Pensioner feels the brunt in house hunt”, The Times, 5/2/2018). A reader has now come to the rescue offering Larry a self-contained unit or bungalow on 12 hectares at Pearcedale. Larry has accepted and will take over yard duties, such as lawn mowing and looking after the animals. “It’s a two-bedroom apartment with a kitchenette and is ideal,” Larry said. “The owners are away a lot and need someone to look after the place and keep it looking lived-in.” Larry’s new landlord said he would make an ideal tenant. “We went through everything and he was rapt,” said the owner, who asked not to be named. The Salvation Army was also helpful, adding

Larry’s name to a Department of Housing list for those seeking independent living quarters. Larry, 70, says his age means he will be moved higher on the list, which will also suit his new landlord’s family situation later on. Also interested in Larry’s plight was the Council to Homeless Persons, which says the state government should finance social housing projects through stamp duty revenues. “The number of people being evicted into homelessness has more than doubled over five years as rents rise,” CEO Jenny Smith said. Figures from the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare show that, last financial year, 43,751 people presented at Victorian homelessness services due to eviction, she said. The Council to Homeless Persons says the increase from 17,930 just five years ago, is due to rising rents. Ms Smith said homelessness was also being driven by population growth, federal government housing taxation settings, and an absence of a national affordable housing plan. “Australia increasingly views housing as a commodity rather than the shelter we all need,” she said .

Educated for excellence, prepared for life As Principal of Mount Eliza Secondary College I could tell you about our excellent VCE results or the recognition we have received internationally for some of our unique programs, but I know that as a parent, you want to know how the school will interact with your child each and every day. I believe that teaching is a privilege that comes with obligation, and that parents deserve to feel comfortable with the school, confident that their values will be upheld and that they can work with the school to help their child to be successful in whatever area is important to them. From my perspective, there are three things that I think best summarise what parents are looking for in a secondary school: They want their child to feel safe, they want them to be happy, and they want them to be smart. We know that the first two must be in place in order to achieve the third, and as a smaller secondary school option, Mount Eliza Secondary College is very well placed to achieve all three and absolutely committed to do so. As a Candidate School for the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program [7-9] we offer the only opportunity for this rigorous and exceptional approach outside of Melbourne and are one of only two government schools able to deliver the MYP. This is an exciting development to an already strong program which focuses on academic excellence, as well as the skills required for the future – problem solving, citizenship, creativity, collaboration and initiative. We would welcome the opportunity to talk with you regarding the opportunities that exist at Mount Eliza Secondary College, and invite you to visit to experience the positivity, strong work ethic, friendliness and calm for yourself.

I have been involved in the Karingal Heights Primary School community for over 20 years. My children attended school here and I have been involved as a teacher and parent for that time. I love our school. Coming back to Karingal Heights Primary School after the holidays is always an enjoyable experience. Saying hello to our students, old and new and chatting to their parents is always fun. Being a small school of approximately 80 children allows us to know all our children and their families well.

Lift accident results in death Compiled by Brodie Cowburn A DISTRESSING fatality occurred in Melbourne on Thursday last when a lad named Arthur Albert Verney 14 years, son of Mr and Mrs Verney of Frankston was killed. Shortly after 4 p.m. a salesman employed at Shanks and Co’s warehouse, 351 Flinders Lane, noticed that the goods lift was some distance below the ground floor. Closer inspection revealed that a boy had been crushed between the lift and the wall. Constable Froher was called and the boy was extricated and taken to the Melbourne Hospital. On arrival there he was found to be dead. The lift in which the fatality occurred opens out on to Bond St. and has an automatic door which closes immediately the lift ascends. It is thought that the lad, who had been employed as a messenger for Henry Buck and Co., Swanston St. managed to get into the lift while the door was open. In coming down from another floor he apparently became bewildered when nearing the ground floor and being unable to stop the lift he attempted to jump out with the result that he sustained fatal injuries. Great sympathy is expressed for the parents in their sad bereavement. *** THE sad news was received from the Defence Department on Monday, February 11th, by Mrs Elliot “Bee Farm” Frankston, that her only surviving son, Private Michael Elliot,

AT the childrens’ court at Frankston on Monday last, several youthful offenders were dealt with. Thos Jenson was charged with illegally using a bicycle; a boy named Saunders was charged with stealing postal articles; and, the charge against a boy named Osborne was that he stole a large sum of money from Keast’s store at Frankston, on 18th January last. *** DEATH has removed another very old and respected resident of Pearcedale, in the person of Mr Nathanial Pearce. The late Mr Pearce was, at the time of his death, the last of the original settlers. He took up land here many years ago and with his family, has been in the district ever since. The funeral, which was largely attended, took place on Monday, the Rev A. P. McFarlane officiating at the graveside. *** SEVERAL reports have reached us that men have entered private property and fallen timber for the purpose of obtaining honey. As this is contrary to the law we may inform these honey thieves that a vigilant society exists in the Peninsula to deal with this matter. Becoming bolder, the thieves have actually robbed private hives left in isolated parts. In one case they fell a tree and burnt over 4 tons of firewood before the owner of the week end villa arrived.

had died at the First Auxiliary Hospital, England, on the 7th February. The late Private Michael Elliot enlisted on January 17th 1916, and sailed with the 24th battalion on March 21st 1916. He was on active service from September to December, when he was sent to England suffering from trench feet. He returned to France again on Sept 20th 1917 and was wounded in the head on Oct 16th, 1917. On the 18th January of this year he was reported suffering from pluerisy, and as stated above died on the 7th February, 1918, at the age of 23½ years. The late Private Elliot was the brother of Gunner Matthew Elliot who was killed in France on Feb 27th 1917. Much sympathy is felt for Mrs Elliot and her daughters in their sad loss. *** MR A. G. Wilcox, who recently, returned to Frankston from active service abroad, has been rather seriously indisposed, and is under the care of Dr Atkinson. We trust Mr Wilcox will have a speedy restoration to health. *** MRS Rimmer of the “Plaza” Playne St, Frankston has been ordered by her medical adviser to relinguish business. She has therefore decided to dispose of the business as a going concern and to take a complete rest. ***

When we state the men are in receipt of regular pay from the State it can be realised how mean the creatures are. *** THE Presbyterian Young Men’s Bible Class Union of Victoria, will again Camp this Easter on the Frankston Cricket ground, near the station. The camp starts on March 28th and ends on April 1st. An attendance of about 150 members is expected. Last year the Union arranged a successful concert in the local Mechanics’ Institute, in aid of the Red Cross Funds. This year another concert will be given, the proceed to be for the Repatriation Fund. A good programme will be staged by members of the Union, assisted by leading Melbourne artists. *** A MEETING of the Frankston branch of the National Federation will be held in the hall on Wednesday next, February 20th at 8pm. On the same date a meeting of the Citizens’ League will be held, when it is to be hoped there will be a good attendance. There should be a good attendance of citizens of Frankston at the meeting on Monday evening called for the purpose of discussing ways and means of improving Kananook Creek. The matter is one of importance to all, as the present state of the creek is most unsatisfactory *** IF sufficient inducement offers, the

Peninsula Motor Garage Pty. Ltd. will run a service of motor cars from Mornington, Somerville, Langwarrin and Carrum, in connection with the concert in Frankston on Saturday, March 9th for the Soldiers’ Repatriation Fund. Patrons wishing to attend the concert from the previously mentioned towns, should at once get into touch with Mr Bradbury, the company’s manager. *** THE tennis club intend to win some laurels his year, if practice will accomplish it. The addition of Miss Marsh to the committee will only strengthen it and the lady champion, Miss Nicholls, will have to look to her laurels against a promising young player in Miss Amy Clark, daughter of Mr John Clark, in his day, a good all round athlete. *** A PUBLIC meeting was held in the Tyabb Hall on Tuesday 12th February. Cr. Longmuir was voted to the chair. It was moved that the Red Cross society hold social evenings which would include raffles, lucky bags etc. The Fruitgrowers’ are to be asked for donation of fruit or cash, the fruit to be sold and the proceeds devoted to the funds. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 16 February 1918

The Pirates of Penzance UNDOUBTEDLY the most critically acclaimed and most popular of the Gilbert & Sullivan musicals is The Pirates of Penzance. A true family musical comedy is what lies ahead with the Pirates clashing swords and trading barbs in this modern take. This fast paced and beautifully sung production which tours with a full set and costumes is the complete production…but beware in 2018, it will contain nuts and Donald Trump additives… hilarious!! I am the Pirate King, Policeman’s Lot is not a Happy One, Cat Like Tread and Poor Wandering One are just a few of the hit songs performed in this production. The stellar cast is led by musical theatre star Philip Gould as the swashbuckling Pirate King, veteran comic baritone Brian Hannan as the Major General and the Police Sergeant


, international soprano Alison Jones as Mabel, Opera Australia mezzo soprano Caroline Vercoe as Ruth, Chris Mckenna as Frederic and Dominic Woodhead as the musical director on piano. So say farewell to the Pirates as they sail off into the sunset, but not before providing the whole family with a truly great time in the theatre. The Pirates of Penzance Friday 9 March, 10.30am & 1.30pm Tickets: $20 Bookings: thefac.com.au, 03 9784 1060 or in person at Frankston Arts Centre

Mounties hang on despite draw PROVINCIAL

By IT Gully MT ELIZA maintained its position in the top four in MPCA Provincial Cricket on Saturday despite playing out a dramatic draw against Sorrento. Defending 117 Mt Eliza already had Sorrento on the ropes at the beginning of day two at 2/12. With arguably one of the best bowling attacks in the competition Mt Eliza was always in the box seat to defend such a low score. Sorrento’s Kane Gordon (40) and Liam O’Connor (36) were the only batsmen to offer any assistance. Mt Eliza was bowled out for 117 with more than 15 overs up their sleeve. At one point late in the match Sorrento looked home at 8/115. Nick Baron was the pick of the Mt Eliza bowlers 3/28. Langwarrin retained the Bushman’s Cup after beating Pearcedale by almost 50 runs. Kangas skipper again took the game by the scruff bowling 22.2 overs with a match winning return of 5/72. Coach Jake Prosser was also impressive with ball in hand snaring 4/35. Pearcedale’s Chris Dew was the

only batsman who looked likely to help Pearcedale to the 220 required for victory, however he was dismissed for 67 and that was the end of the ball game. The Panthers were eventually all out for 173. Baxter’s waft of finals cricket is still in the air after it cruised to victory against Mornington. Resuming at 0/8 Baxter required just 123 for victory. Chris Brittain made light work of that getting all of those runs himself, hitting eight boundaries and ten going straight over the rope finishing on 133. Joe Rule scored 40 runs also. Baxter pulled up stumps in the sixty ninth over at 4/213. As predicted Peninsula Old Boys took Crib Point to the cleaners, bowling them out for 137. Defending 212 the Old Boys already had Crib Point 1/6 overnight. Once again it was Old Boy’s skipper Wade Pelzer who stole the show with the ball snaring 6/25. Luke Herrington was the best of the Crib Point batsmen with 44. Shark hunt: Despite this setback, Red Hill made light work of Flinders. Picture: Andrew Hurst

Blues get off the bottom DISTRICT

Ducks pull off outright PENINSULA

By IT Gully MOOROODUC scored a miraculous reverse outright against Main Ridge in MPCA Peninsula Cricket on Saturday. Main Ridge had a wonderful opportunity to all but cement its place in the top two, however blew it despite getting first innings points. Last week after the first day Main Ridge bowled out Moorooduc for 55 before declaring its first innings at 7/141. With 19 overs left in the day the Ridge were able to take 3/64 still leaving the Ducks 40 runs behind. On day two what the Ridge didn’t count on was Madushanka Perera scoring 92 and Kasun Perera helping himself to 89, eventually declaring after 54 overs at 9/236. Needing 152 runs in 60 overs, the Ridge fell 13 runs short, bowled out for 139 in 44 overs. Justin McCleary was the best of the Moorooduc bowlers with 4/46 off 13 overs. A cracking 132 runs from arguably one of the Peninsula’s greatest ever

sportsman, Michael Burke, has helped Long Island to an unlikely victory against Delacombe Park. Chasing 248 for victory Burke was joined at the crease by Pubudu Edirisinghe who helped himself to 65. Helping Long Island to 6/251 in 73 overs. The Parkers used eight bowlers in a desperate attempt to remove Burke, the match winner. As expected Somerville proved far too strong for Pines. Chasing Somerville’s 173 Pines lost 3 wickets in the final seven overs of day one. Resuming day two at 3/20 things never recovered for Pines, bowled out in the fifty second over for 119. Jayde Herrick was the best of the Somerville bowlers with 4/27 while Jay Parker picked up 3/7 from seven overs. Red Hill made light work of Flinders picking up the victory total in the sixty seventh over. Simon Dart finished unbeaten on 85 as did Tim Collette on 51. Red Hill declared at 5/179.

By IT Gully HASTINGS has clawed its way off the bottom off the MPCA District ladder after beating Seaford Tigers outright on Saturday. Rosebud now looks after the unenviable position of bottom of the ladder and is now under pressure to avoid relegation. The Blues had pretty much wrapped up victory last week, however there was always that chance of the Tigers pulling off a reverse outright. That wasn’t the case as we headed into day two, even though the Blues resumed at 3/35 and were eventually bowled out for just 106. With a lead of 128 Hastings’ bowlers again needed to perform at their absolute best. That came in the form of Isuru Dias who took 5/23 off 10 overs (he

also took 6/34 in the first innings). The Tigers were rolled for 47 in 20.1 overs. Mt Martha was able to get pre-finals bragging rights over Seaford in their clash. Mt Martha now hold second place on the lader, .05 of a percent clear of Seaford who sit in third place. Given the tightness of the season it was an important win for the Reds. It was an incredible victory for Mt Martha who resumed day two at 7/29, chasing Seaford’s first innings total of 126. Make no mistake Brad Schreuder was the match winner with an unbeaten 42, while Kane Hawkins was not far behind at all with 39. Right at the end when Mt Martha needed somebody to stick around with Schreuder, Curtis Stone was the man to step up to the plate, scoring 19 runs and helping to get his team over the line.

Heatherhill has grabbed Rye’s position in the top bracket after a convincing 100 plus runs win. Set 223 for victory, Rye resumed at 0/7. They were bowled out in the 42nd over for just 100. Matty Meagher was the destroyer for Heatherhill, taking 5/22 off 13 overs. Looking for an outright victory the Hills sent Rye back into bat, however were not able to pick up the ten wickets. Rye opener Tom Baron proved to be the thorn in the Hill’s side, scoring 101. It was a game between top versus bottom – Baden Powell vs Rosebud. Enough said? Not quite! Resuming at 1/62 and chasing 110 for victory, the Braves skipped along to victory scoring 5/244 in a leisurely 92 overs. Coen Chernishoff top scored for the Braves with 84 while Craig Entwistle finished unbeaten on 59.

Subbies produce predictable results SUB-DISTRICT

By IT Gully THINGS went absolutely as expected in MPCA Sub District Cricket on Saturday. After the conclusion of day one it appeared that all matches would have a predictable outcome. For

instance, Boneo was always going to be up against it to beat Dromana who had set them 271 runs for victory, they fell almost 100 runs short, bowled out in the 53rd over for just 177. Jye Voelkl took 4/69 off 17 overs for the Hoppers while Ryan Jellie scored 77 for the Pandas. Skye was left with some work to

do to chase down Carrum Down’s total of 9/253. It too fell 60 runs short thanks largely to the Cougar’s Jordy Watters who picked up 5/44. Balnarring needed just 35 runs to beat Tyabb at the end of day one. They may have resumed at 5/80 but they were always going to pick up the required runs with five wickets

in hand, they declared at 8/151. Batting second against Tootgarook, Frankston YCW was always going to be up against it chasing down 205. Zac Stevenson was back in Frog colours after a stint at Rye and picked up 4/19 restricting YCW to just 152. In the final match Ballam Park’s

total of 157 was always going to be 60 shy of what was required against Carrum. The Lions scored 234 in 67 overs, a victory of 77 runs. Knight’s skipper David Cross was a stand out in the match taking 5/28.

Langwarrin, Somerville off to a flyer SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie LANGWARRIN’S much anticipated NPL2 debut and David Greening’s player-coaching bow both ended in triumph last weekend. Langy travelled to Wembley Park on Saturday and celebrated a deserved 2-0 win against a Box Hill side that enjoyed a lot of possession but whose slow and purposeless interpassing game suited the visitors. Greening’s two goals spearheaded Somerville Eagles’ 3-2 FFA Cup win against Old Mentonians at Somerville High School on Saturday. Somerville raced to a 3-0 lead thanks to Greening and Ash Scholes with the latter’s bullet header from a Matt Curd corner in the 50th minute giving him his first goal in senior football. A James Bingham goal in the 74th minute gave Old Mentonians a glimmer of hope and a moment of madness from Somerville keeper Brad Klarenbeek allowed Tyler Pollard to score from the penalty spot in the 87th minute. “We dominated the first 70 minutes but it was a tense and nervy finish as we ground it out,” said Greening. “It should never have got to that though so our game management is definitely something to work on.” Somerville’s starting line-up featured six newcomers in Greening, Scholes, Klarenbeek (all from Rosebud Heart), Matthew Curd (Seaford United), Louis Griffiths (Baxter) and Michael Clarke (Elwood City) while Jack McKenna (Langwarrin), Stephen Curd (Seaford United) and Kadison English (Rosebud Heart) were on the bench. Langy’s success was due to a double from Liam Baxter and late heroics from goalkeeper Robbie Acs. Big “Yaya” (Mat Luak) revelled in an attacking midfielder’s role while 20-year-old Callum Goulding from Melbourne Victory anchored the Langy midfield with Lewis Potter and Paul Speed either side of a diamond formation. The pace of and trickery of Baxter and Johnny Kuol were constant dangers. Langy led 1-0 at the break thanks to a slick interpassing move involving Luak and Kuol with the latter teeing up Baxter for a tap-in in the 38th minute. That should have been the Scottish striker’s hat-trick but he’d shot over from the right of the area in the 16th minute and a minute later was denied by a point-blank smother from Box Hill keeper Luke Gavalas. Langy earned some breathing space when Baxter was brought down inside the area in the 71st minute and the referee had no hesitation in pointing to the spot. Baxter slammed his conversion high into the roof of the net before charging towards the large travelling support to celebrate.

Victor Medini, Sam Klepac and Esmael Zahiri replaced Luak, Baxter and Kuol in the second half and Langy appeared to be coasting to the line. But Acs had to spring into action in the 89th minute to block a close range Ryan Go shot and two minutes later Andy McIntyre was controversially ruled to have brought down Nicholas Edwards inside the area. Acs’s reputation as a shot-stopper was enhanced when he flung himself to his left to parry Phillip Petreski’s spot kick and end the home team’s dismal day. “It was very pleasing and it will give us a lot of confidence but at the same time we’ve got to do it again this week because there’s no point winning away from home then losing at home,” said long-serving Langy gaffer Gus Macleod. Langy squares up to Goulburn Valley Suns at Lawton Park on Saturday and the Shepparton-based club started the season with a 2-1 home loss last weekend to big spending title contender Dandenong City. Former AFC Wimbledon striker Craig Carley rejoined the Suns last May after stints at Hume City and Avondale and was appointed playercoach of the seniors last October. The club recently announced the capture of 24-year-old former Everton youth team midfielder Jordan Barrow. “We know they’ve strengthened but my focus is on our players and my job

Frankston Times 19 February 2018

is to make sure that they keep their concentration and focus on what we do well,” said Macleod. Langy’s under-20s bombed out 3-1. A sweeping interpassing move and a cross from the right by Keegan Guy in the 31st minute saw Langy captain Max Boulton charge in at the far post between two defenders and power his header home for the opener. The home team levelled right on the stroke of half-time via a stunning 30-metre strike by Sung Min Lee. Box Hill hit the front in the 64th minute when an inch-perfect cross from the right by Ryan Kirkus was headed home by unmarked substitute Nikita Cicmil. Langy lost its shape and discipline in the final half-hour and was a sitting duck on the break. It appealed in vain for offside in the 85th minute but Vasili Tsoumpris strolled clear and slammed the ball past helpless Langy keeper Ben Caballero to round off the scoreline. Langwarrin’s NPL juniors start their season on Sunday when they travel to Kingston Heath Soccer Complex to face NPL giant Bentleigh Greens with the under-12s and under-13s both kicking off at 10am, the under-14s and under-15s at 11.15am and the under16s and under-18s at 1pm. In State 3 South-East news Skye United confirmed late last week that it had signed former Mauritian international Chris Driver.

The club had already captured the signatures of Caleb Nicholes, Mitch Blake and Jordan Redburn from Langwarrin and Driver is a former Langy midfielder. Skye boss Billy Armour is still on the lookout to add to his squad. Skye beat State 4 East outfit Ringwood City 4-1 in a friendly at Ringwood on Saturday with Nicholes and Lawrence Komba scoring twice. Another former Langy player, Cameron Leopold, played for Skye but is yet to sign. Southern United’s season gets underway on Sunday when it hosts Bayside United which has signed around a dozen of Southern’s 2017 players. Southern’s senior squad has undergone a massive revamp under new head coach Aaron Myatt who comes face to face with Bill Mihaloudis and Rob Giabardo, Southern’s senior coaches last year and now in charge at Bayside. “We’ll approach this as we will do every game – believing in our strengths as a team unit,” said Myatt. “We have a young squad and although we haven’t gelled yet if we are solid and compact at the back we can get something from this game.” Here are Southern’s 2018 squads with the previous club of new players in brackets. The under-12s have eight players who have graduated from the club’s successful 2017 Skill Acquisition Pro-

gram (SAP). UNDER 12s: Taylen Wolf, Rhianna Kelleher (SAP), Jasmine Smith (SAP), Emilia Ingles (SAP), Ceara Taylor (SAP), Eden McKeown (SAP), Kayla McLeod (SAP), Leah Plavljanic (SAP), Gemma DeVos (SAP), Chiara Renzella, Savannah Lapenta, Lauren Riha, Ava Guarascio.

Southern is looking at three other prospective signings on the local market as well as two players from Scotland. In other news Pines have lost Jack Wrobel and Matt Davis to White Star Dandenong (who lost 7-0 to Chelsea in their FFA Cup clash last weekend), Seaford’s Dylan Waugh is training with Peninsula Strikers and the player exodus from North Seaford Reserve looks likely to include Matt MorrisThomas, Mitch Lander and maybe Daniel Walsh. This weekend’s games: SATURDAY 3pm: Langwarrin v Goulburn Valley Suns (Lawton Park), U20s 1pm. SUNDAY 3.15pm: Southern Utd v Bayside Utd (Monterey Reserve), U12s 9am, U14s 10.15am, U16s 11.40am, U19s 1.15pm.


Triathlon runners aim high THE Mornington Peninsula Triathlon Club is hoping to once again cement itself as one of the leading clubs in Victoria when it comes to junior triathlons. The club, based at Long Island Drive in Frankston, had four members competing in South Australia at the national level earlier this month with MPTC’s triathlon mentor, Luke Burns and some of the club’s up and coming juniors competing at the Glenelg Triathlon on Saturday 3 February. Burns, who trains out of Brisbane and competes internationally, ran against Australia and New Zealand’s best triathlon talent in the Oceania Cup where he finished in 15th position. MPTC performance coach Kyle Burns said that his son, Luke, has gone through the same system as the current juniors and has been a great mentor for the team. “He’s competed in about eight countries over the last year and three world cups so he’s really starting to find his feet internationally,” Burns said. “He went through the same system as the current juniors up until he was about 19-years-old.” Junior athletes, Lachie Watson, Oscar Riley and Lily Van Raay also competed in South Australia where they ran in the second race of the Australian Junior Triathlon Series. Burns said that not all went to plan for the juniors as they didn’t have best

of luck in their events after training so hard beforehand. “The results didn’t really reflect how they had been training,” he said. “Oscar copped a kick to the head in the swim and had to go to hospital afterwards with a mild concussion and Lachie fell off his bike and that was the end of his triathlon. “They had been training well beforehand so it’s pretty unlucky for the boys but they’re alright now and are working towards the All Schools in 10 weeks. “It was good to see Lily come back from a broken toe which she got at the start of the season and get through her race.” Having been chosen by the state coaches, Oscar returned the following day to join the Victorian Mixed Relay team and finished runners-up in the relay championships to claim his first national medal. Burns said it was a great result for Oscar with the event now being a major focus in Australia. “There is now an Olympic medal for that event so that triathlon has become a big focus,” he said. “Victoria has a really good team coming through and they only lost by nine seconds at the end. It’s really good and really encouraging going forwards.” MPTC also had five members competing in Elwood on the Sunday with Harrison Bolton, Ella Humphreys and Tomm Jansen all winning their

respected races while Grace Bunting finished in fifth position at the 15-19 World Championship Qualifiers. Burns said it was great to see the juniors compete so well considering that they’re still developing this year and will be aiming to step up next year. “They’re doing really well, some of them are fairly new and just learning at the moment,” he said. “Grace is going well and will be aiming to qualify for the World’s this year.” Burns said the results were a step in the right direction as the club has begun to put a greater focus on helping their juniors reach the podium.

Begg ready for first Diamond runner RETURNING to racing just over 18 months ago, Mt Eliza-based horse trainer Grahame Begg will have his first crack at the $1.5 million Group One Blue Diamond Stakes on Saturday (24 February). The former Sydney-based trainer will send his unbeaten colt, Written By, to Caulfield for the Blue Diamond Stakes after he ran away with the Group Three Blue Diamond Prelude at Caulfield a fortnight ago. The homebred colt, which is by Begg’s former star sprinter Written Tycoon and bred by his Hall of Fame father Neville, has defeated several Blue Diamond fancies in his two career starts and has done it the hard way having had to jump from the widest barrier both times. Trainer Grahame Begg, who trains out of Pinecliff, Mt Eliza, said he

couldn’t be happier with how the colt has pulled up from his last start and is looking forward to having his first runner in a Blue Diamond. “Obviously having a horse which is in good form heading into the Diamond makes it all that bit more exciting,” Begg said. “He’s very well and I’m very happy with him. He’s come through his run brilliantly and there hasn’t been any indication to make me think otherwise.” Jockey Jordan Childs, who has ridden Written By at his past two victories, equalled his biggest win to date in the Group Three prelude last start. He will be staying aboard the colt in the feature race on Saturday and will be hoping to capture his first Group One victory. Ben Triandafillou

PLAYERS from the St Kilda Football Club visited some of the most vulnerable in the community at Wallara’s Sages Cottage Farm, Baxter on Tuesday 13 February as part of their community camps initiative. The players visited the community garden which was built at the end of last year by some of the Saints executive management team and participated in a range of activities which provides training opportunities for people with different abilities. Wallara supports more than 500 people by providing community day services, residential and supported accommodation part and full-time employment, training and workplace opportunities for the disabled. As part of the two-day community camp, the Saints players also visited Peninsula Grammar where they kicked off their camp with a training session on the Monday morning. A further 45 schools across the Bayside, Kingston, Frankston and Mornington region were visited on the Tuesday as well as several football clubs and community groups. St Kilda’s general manager of community Lisa Laing said the club enjoyed the opportunity to get out and about in the region. “The camp was a golden opportunity for the club to give back to the community, while also allowing a future generation of Sainters to meet their heroes,” Laing said. “This region is so important to the club in all that we do, and the camp reminds us of the support that exists for the Saints in the bayside and peninsula communities.” The coaching staff and senior club

leaders also held a couple of functions on the Monday night aimed towards football communities. At the Frankston event, Nathan Burke was the keynote speaker, alongside Peta Searle and Southern Saints (Women’s VFL) player Georgia Walker while club CEO Matt Finnis, senior coach Alan Richardson and captain, Jarryn Geary headlined a second event in Sandringham focusing on leadership in football.
