Winner’s party Labor supporters in Dunkley celebrating the likely election of Peta Murphy as the member for Dunkley. Picture: Gary Sissons

Labor look to break Dunkley drought Brodie Cowburn WITH over 70 per cent of the vote counted from Saturday’s federal election, the seat of Dunkley will almost certainly be won by the Labor Party. For the first time since 1996 it appears the electorate of Dunkley will be in Labor’s hands with their candidate Peta Murphy holding an 6.4 per cent lead on a two party preferred basis with just under 73 per cent of the vote counted.

Incumbent MP Chris Crewther has yet to officially concede as of Monday morning, but has admitted that victory is “unlikely”. Ms Murphy, a former lawyer and a candidate in the 2016 election, said that the results in Dunkley were “looking good” and she was looking forward to getting stuck into work if elected. “We ran a really positive campaign, people responded to me being out and about in the community. I think I built on my positive work from last campaign, and having been a part of

the community people told me it was good that I came to their door, I met people in my community, and I had really positive ideas for Dunkley,” she said. “I really want to thank everyone on my campaign who gave up their time. It took a lot of work to be part of this campaign, and I really can’t thank them enough. I want to thank the community groups that invited me to come talk to them about what they wanted from the government, I’m really grateful for those opportunities. I also want to thank my husband, Rod Glover.”

The night was a bittersweet one for Ms Murphy, as she was one of only a small handful of Labor candidates to pick up seats from the Coalition. Labor conceded the election on Saturday night, but Ms Murphy said she is up for the challenge of working in opposition. “Really the first priority was always representing Dunkley in Canberra, and that doesn’t change in government or in opposition. I’ll have to be a little bit louder in opposition but luckily I’ve got a very loud voice,” she said. “Even in opposition, I’ll continue

to push really hard for all of the projects I’d committed to. I’ll be pushing for support from council and the state government on crucial projects, and I’ll be pushing the federal government very hard to deliver all the things the Liberals promised during the election. “If elected I’ll be first woman to represent Dunkley, and I will fight every day to do the memory of Louisa Dunkley proud and fight for our community.” Continued Page 3

Ten storey proposal has ‘issues’ FRANKSTON councillors have voted unanimously to signal their disapproval of a proposed ten storey development next to the South East Water building in Frankston. The proposal was to “construct a 10 storey building with an overall height of 38.6 metres on the subject site which is located on the south-west corner of Nepean Highway and Playne Street” that would “be used for a restaurant, a café, retail and office activities, accommodation in the form of apartments with communal facilities and a communal roof terrace.” Councillors unanimously voted to agree that a planning application “for the use and development of the land at 490-504 Nepean Highway Frankston for the construction of a 10 storey building for use for retail (shop), food and drink premises (restaurant and café), office and accommodation (108 apartments), and a reduction in the car parking requirements” would have been refused “should a review not

have been lodged (...) at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal.” The council officer’s assessment stated that “the development proposal raises two substantive issues. The proposed development exceeds the 20 metre mandatory height controls for Precinct 1B as adopted by council in Amendment C123, and the grant of a planning permit would be futile as council resolved at the council meeting of 23 April 2019 not to sell their interest in the site as part landowner of the land.” “Frankston City Council is the land owner of that part of the site below 5.55 metres AHD which currently provides public car parking by a lease arrangement. The development proposes to demolish the existing building and build over council’s land but does not address council’s interest in the site or propose a satisfactory resolution to the existing provision of public car parking on the site,” the assessment read.

Trailing Crewther ‘loves the community’ Continued from Page 1 Incumbent MP Chris Crewther was elected in 2016, replacing outgoing Liberal Bruce Billson. His time as member for Dunkley appears to have only lasted one term. He told The Times that he was proud of the work he had done for the electorate. “There’s been heaps of things done in this term and heaps of budgeted things done for Dunkley by the Coalition government. My proudest achievement was the actually the return of the breakfast club for those in need. I had instigated a meeting with the new head of Chisholm, and now that service is up and running five times a week,” he said. “There’s also been $228 million for Baxter line electrification and duplication, and I hope the state government gets on board working with the member for Dunkley on that project. There’s $32 million for the Health Futures Hub, funding for the Ballarto Road project, and a range of different sporting clubs. Civic Reserve, Lloyd Park, RF Miles Reserve, the Karingal Bulls, Centenary Park, Ballam Park, significant amounts have already been

ISAACS MP Mark Dreyfus was returned as the member for Isaacs on Saturday night. Mr Dreyfus has held the seat for the Labor Party since 2007. He celebrated the victory with supporters in Mordialloc. The Liberal Party’s candidate for the seat Jeremy Hearn was disendorsed before polling day after a series of anti-Islam comments made by him online were unearthed. The result was a 5.3 per cent swing towards the Labor Party in Isaacs, a larger swing than in most other seats around the state. In the seat of Flinders, Health Minister Greg Hunt weathered the storm of a tough election campaign against Labor candidate Josh Sinclair and independent candidate Julia Banks and was returned as the local member, although with a reduced margin. Mr Hunt’s seat had been targeted by activist groups such as GetUp. His role in the August 2018 leadership spill that ousted Malcolm Turnbull as Prime Minister had been a recurring message during the campaign. In the neighbouring electorate of Holt, incumbent Labor MP Anthony Byrne easily retained his safe seat.

delivered to these projects and more, and will be completed in years to come whether I’m in the seat or not. “I really do love the community, not just as the local member but just as a local in the area. I’ve been passionate about the people and giving them opportunities. Hopefully whoever the member for Dunkley is going forward will be genuine and honest.” Mr Crewther said that the redistribution of the seat that made it notionally Labor had been the most significant factor in his likely loss. He paid tribute to his campaign team and said if he couldn’t come back and claim victory, he was looking forward to spending more time with his family. “If I don’t get across the line, I’m looking forward to spending time with family, and especially my newborn son. In this job around election time, you’re working 21 hour days. That comes at a cost to your family, and I look forward to spending more time with them,” he said. “I’d like to thank my wife Grace who has been a great help. I’d also like to thank my campaign team, there has been heaps of people volunteering. Jake, Ken, Michael, Kerry, Jan, Arthur, someone was always out and about putting signs up or helping. I thank everyone for their terrific efforts, the amount of volunteer hours has been massive. “It’s been fantastic over the last few years to serve the community, it’s been a community I love.” ABC election analyst Antony Green called the seat for the Labor Party on Saturday night.

GRADUATES from the Cafe Creations program. Picture: Supplied

Cafe graduates ready to serve THE Cafe Creations program has served up its second batch of graduates. The program, run out of Frankie’s Cafe in Frankston South, aims to give young people who are not employed or in the education system a chance to learn new skills. Graduate Hayley, who has recently moved to the Frankston area, said the experience was a positive one. “I’ve worked in hospitality before so I do have some experience, but working

with the team at Café Creations really helped me to take my skills to the next level,” she said. “Being new to the area, I didn’t really know anyone. Now, thanks to the program I have a group of awesome friends who I will to stay in contact with in the future.” At completion of the course, participants receive their Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) Certificate and their Food Handlers Certificate.

The mayor Michael O’Reilly said “the Cafe Creations program is about giving disengaged youth the best chance possible of finding future employment by arming them with the industry skills and knowledge needed to succeed in hospitality.” “Council dedicates a large amount of time and resources to support local youth, and the Café Creations program is another shining example that it is money well spent,” he said.

Safety check before warm-up A SAFETY warning has been issued for property owners to check and maintain their fireplaces, chimneys, fireboxes and flues. The CFA says there has been a rise in the number of chimney fires from both fireplaces and wood heaters. CFA’s manager community safety Jude Kennedy said over time there could be a build-up of creosote, a black tar-like residue, which is highly flammable and could clog up chimneys. “Creosote is not only caused by general use, but it can also build up quicker if you are using incorrect fuels, such as green wood or treated timbers,” he said. To reduce the risk of fire starting from a fireplace or wood heater: Use a torch to check for creosote build-up or obstructions; have chimnies professionally cleaned annually; only burn dry, clean wood; and, extinguish fires before going to bed or leaving the house. Mr Kennedy said gas heaters shuold be inspected and serviced every two years to guard

against carbon monoxide poisoning or fire. “Every household should consider their fire safety practices and examine the potential risks around their home,” he said. “Cooler weather conditions and the winter months are one of the riskiest times of the year for fires in the home and sadly, most of these fires can be prevented. “Chimney fires can quickly turn into house fires so the few minutes spent now could be one of the most important fire safety actions you take. “Fireplaces can also be a fire hazard if fuels are allowed to fall out of the fireplace. A secure guard or fireproof screen should be used at all times. “If drying clothes ensure they are positioned at least one metre away from the heat source and constantly monitored to reduce the chance of them igniting.” “One of the nicest things about winter is curling up in front of a warm fire, and with these small tips we can ensure you do this safely,” Mr Kennedy said.

Station Street facelift: Robinsons Bookshop’s Lana Menheere and Frankston mayor Michael O’Reilly observe plans to revamp Station Street Mall. Picture: Supplied

Station Street mall revamp scheduled WORKS to revamp Station Street Mall are expected to start within weeks. The $1.63 million project will include a new decking area, trees, seating, and provisions for outdoor dining throughout the area. The mayor Michael O’Reilly said the project would “revitalise the area for local traders and visitors.” “The Station Street Mall improvements will contribute to the transformation of the Frankston

Station precinct into a safer, more modern place of business and activity. Station Street Mall is set to become a destination to stop and unwind, rather than pass through, with improvements to create a great space for all to enjoy,” he said. “We’ve worked closely with the affected businesses, the community and other stakeholders to ensure we make the most of this project. The shops will remain open during

the works. Some are taking the opportunity to also complete their own renovations and I encourage you to support these businesses during the project.” The project will start in mid-June and are projected to take around five months. It is funded by $1.17 million of ratepayer funding allocated by council, $360,000 from the state government and $100,000 from Vicinity.

THE current management of Karingal Neighbourhood House is set to wind up operations. Karingal Neighbourhood House Incorporated, a not for profit community organisation, has been running programs out of Karingal PLACE Neighbourhood Centre for close to four decades. On 9 May they made the decision to wind up their work. A statement issued by the group said “based on the outcome of a review undertaken by the Committee of Management into the organisation’s financial projections, the Committee has made the difficult decision to wind up the organisation. This decision has not come lightly nor without significant consideration of alternatives.” “We understand that this decision will have an impact on both our staff and the local community that we have served for nearly 40 years. The Committee of Management and the KNH staff would like to thank the community and volunteers who have supported the house since it commenced operation in 1982 and our funding bodies who have enabled us to provide programs of activities as dynamic and diverse as they have been over the years,” the statement read. “The KNH Committee are working closely with our stakeholders to support a transition of current services and to make the process as smooth as possible for the community. The programs currently run by KNH and the management of the rooms that are currently hired, will transfer to other service providers.” Occasional child care run by Karin-

gal Neighbourhood House concluded 17 May. Council run services at the centre will continue to operate. Maternal and child health, youth services, and kindergarten services will continue to run at the centre.

Sand shipped from Mordi Beach THOUSANDS of cubic metres of sand will be shipped from Mordialloc Beach in the coming weeks as part of a project to “renourish” Parkdale Beach. The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning has begun works to give Parkdale Beach a facelift. They plan to place 8000 cubic metres of sand on the foreshore area of the beach. DELWP Port Phillip land and built environment program officer Cass Philippou said that sand from Mordialloc would be taken from an area where it would be “naturally replaced.” “Parkdale Beach has eroded over time from the action of wind, waves and tidal flow. Sand will be taken from Mordialloc Beach and trucked to Parkdale Beach where it will be placed in the foreshore area in front of the Parkdale beach cafe and Parkdale Yacht Club,” she said. “Sand generally moves in a southerly direction to Mordialloc Beach at the rate of 2500 cubic metres per year. The sand will be taken from a site at Mordialloc located next to the water’s edge where the tide will naturally replace the sand and smooth the beach. “These works will add up to 25 metres to the beach, and will take around five weeks to complete.”

SES pays tribute to volunteers Brodie Cowburn

Join a branch: Chelsea SES volunteers Katie, Evette, Loryn, and Peter donning orange in preparation for Wear Orange Wednesday, 22 May. Picture: Gary Sissons

CHELSEA SES are paying thanks to their volunteers and encouraging others to get on board and help out too as part of National Volunteer Week, 20 May - 26 May. “Wear Orange Wednesday” will be held on 22 May, with members of the public encouraged to don orange to pay tribute to the hard work of SES volunteers. Chelsea SES member of 16 years Phil Wall said that volunteers were the lifeblood of the local SES. “If we took the volunteers away from the Chelsea SES there would be nothing. We can have all the flashy equipment in the world, but without the people nothing gets done,” he said. “These are ordinary people you know and see everyday. You don’t have to be somebody special to be a part of this. SES volunteers are just people like me or you. “I’ve been asked why I do it and why I give up my time, and it’s because at the end of the day, someone has to. At any time any of us could be in trouble and need the SES. Our people say that they want to be there, and they help out.” Mr Wall said that as part of the week, Chelsea SES will be profiling their hard working volunteers on their Facebook page. “Going through all our volunteers and the one thing that kept coming through was that I could look at them and think that they’re not what I expected to see. None of us are heroes, we’re just people who want to help,” he said. “It is also a two way street, and after 16 years I’ve got more out of it than I’ve ever put in. It’s an incredible feeling to make a positive difference.” More information on how to volunteer with SES can be found at

Car found in flames after chase A CAR has been found burnt out after a “dangerous” police pursuit on 8 May. Police observed a white Ford Ranger driving on the center of the median strop and veering onto the wrong side of the road, causing the other drivers on the road to swerve to avoid collision. A Give Way sign was also observed to be lodged under the car. Police followed the car into Lee Street and attempted to intercept the driver. Police said the driver continued to drive down the wrong side of the road and was displaying “dangerous

behaviour” and the chase was called off. At around 10.30pm, the car was found on fire and abandoned by Jubilee Park in Frankston. CFA were called and extinguished the blaze. Witnesses said they saw a man exit the vehicle and set the car alight, before getting into a blue ute and fleeing the scene. Two other witnesses saw the blue ute at a McDonalds earlier in the night. Any other witnesses are encouraged to contact Crime Stoppers.

Public helps to make arrest A 24-YEAR-old Frankston man has been charged with burglary after a call for public assistance. Frankston Police said that their call for help from the public proved very successful, and they were able to make an arrest as a result of seeing CCTV images. The man was arrested on 8 May. He is alleged to have committed a burglary in November. He was remanded overnight. The man was charged with burglary and theft related charges.

On the run after beach assault in Seaford POLICE are on the hunt for two people who are alleged to have assaulted a man on a Seaford Beach at around 1am on 9 May. Frankston Crime Investigation Unit detectives were told that the victim was at the Riviera Hotel and crossed the road to the beach. Police were told the man was approached by two other men who asked him for cigarettes, and then assaulted him. Witnesses are encouraged to contact Crime Stoppers.

Smoke from the fire entered the second story of the building. The fire brigade attended and extinguished the fire. Frankston Police Senior Sergeant Warren Francis-Pester said “although the building is in disrepair, the structure has historical meaning to many in the Frankston community.” He appealed for witnesses to contact Crime Stoppers at 1800 333 000.

Taken card POLICE are appealing for public assistance to identify a man who is believed to have stolen a credit card and cash in Chelsea Heights. Kingston Crime Investigation Unit detectives believe that a man broke into a vehicle on Talab Court, 2.30am 2 May. The man is alleged to have stolen a credit card, laptop, wallet and a large quantity of cash. The allegedly stolen card was used to make purchases at service stations across Patterson Lakes and Springvale, and a fast food restaurant on Westall Road in the following hours. Investigators have released images and CCTV footage of a man who they believe can assist with their enquiries. Anyone with information or who recognises the man is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.

Fire started at Playne Street site FRANKSTON Police are appealing for information after a fire was started at a “disused” site on Playne Street. Police were called after fire was lit by unknown offenders at around 4pm, 12 May. It is believed the offenders accessed the building and used cardboard to ignite a blaze.

Volunteers essential to local community

VOLUNTEERS have always played an important role in the delivery of services to our customers here at 39plus. Our varied range of social support and respite programs are designed to support the frail aged, people with a disability and carers across the “39” postcode and without our volunteer workforce our capacity to meet the demand for service would be greatly impacted. Since our inception in 1982, our Medical Appointment Service has remained an essential resource for our local community. With the continued growth of the region and the demand for such services, 39plus has expanded its regional scope to include access to vital healthcare to destinations as far away as the inner-city suburbs of Melbourne. Without the dedication of our volunteer drivers who gladly offer their time and compassion to assist some of our communities most vulnerable members, the services personalised approach would cease to exist. In addressing some of the health implications found to relate to social isolation, 39plus Social Support Groups serve as an important resource in combating community disengagement. “The Club” based at Eastbourne Rd in Rosebud is not only a place where our customers come together to enjoy a range of activities in the company of others but is home to some of our longest serving volunteers, some of whom have recently celebrated 20 years of continuous service to the organisation. As many non-profit organisations would appreciate, the impact volunteers have on the lives of our customers and the organisation

as a whole, is immeasurable. The time and commitment given by volunteers is priceless and without these amazing people many services like ours we would be at a disadvantage.

greatly appreciates all that you do! If you are interested in volunteering, have time and compassion for others then please contact 39plus (03) 9017 3284 we’d love to welcome you to the family.



MYERS Road, closed at Hendersons Road.

Police probe couple’s death MAJOR Collision Investigation Unit detectives were last week investigating the circumstances surrounding the deaths of an elderly Chinese couple when a car driven by their son collided with a truck at Bittern, Monday 13 May. Police said the car was travelling towards Hastings along Myers Road after a brief sightseeing tour of the peninsula when the collision occurred, 1.30pm. The couple, in the back seat, died at the scene. Their son, 52, of Carrum Downs, was taken to Frankston Hospital by Air Ambulance

with unspecified injuries. The driver of the truck was not injured. Detective Sergeant Colin Schmidt, of the Major Collision Investigation Unit, said he was looking at all factors, including driver error. He said the son had not been spoken to and no charges – if any – had been laid as of Thursday. Anyone with information or who may have witnessed the incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online at crimestoppersvic.

Wetlands key to safety of long range avian aviators Keith Platt THE Arctic Circle may be a long way from Western Port, but activities this far south have an important role to play fort birds that annually fly between these two areas. Boats and other watercraft in Western Port can have a dramatic effect on the capability of birds to survive the arduous seasonal trip. The wetlands that line Western Port are a major food source and place of protection for the birds before they take off for the Northern Hemisphere. However, their wetland feeding areas are also the hunting ground for people wanting to catch fish. The wester Port Biosphere and the Port Phillip and Westernport Catchment Management Authority are raising awareness of the need to protect Western Port’s wetlands which are recognised under the international Ramsay convention. Australia is home to 65 wetlands listed by the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands of International Importance as waterfowl habitat because of their ecology, botany, zoology, limnology or hydrology. Governments of countries containing Ramsar wetlands are obligated to afford these areas some protection. In Australia, the federal government says that an action that will, or is likely to, have a significant impact on a Ramsar wetland will be “subject to a rigorous environmental assessment and approval regime under the EPBC Act” (Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999).

Contraventions of the EPBC Act may attract a civil penalty of up to $5.5 million, or a criminal penalty of up to $46,200 or, in extreme cases, up to seven years' jail. The state government is paying for the project headed by the biosphere to lift awareness of Western Port’s wetlands. “We have birds that make an annual migration over thousands of kilometres to come to Western Port as this place is so special,” project officer Casey Lee said. “The project will engage with recreational watercraft users across the Ramsar site to raise awareness of the vitally important wetlands

and how to limit impacts on them. “The wetland consists of seagrass meadows, mudflats, mangroves and saltmarshes which fringe the bay. These start the food chains that sustain the fishery and provide for our international migratory shorebirds. These birds rely on the wetland for food prior to their epic migrations to the Arctic Circle. “Our local fish like the King George whiting grow to adults in the seagrass meadows of Western Port. Whiting from our bay then migrate along the Victorian coast to spawning sites far along the coast to the west.” “Western Port faces challenges, as

do most natural systems, in balancing conservation with recreation. However, these factors can be reconciled as responses to pressures on conservation can overlap with recreation. For example, damage to seagrass can lead to less fish for us to catch and can deny birds the nutrients that they need for migration. “The project will bring together bay users to collaborate in looking after this special place so that future generations are able to enjoy it like we have”. Boat users can attend a biosphereorganised field day. Details: po@ or call 5979 2167.

Call for cheaper access to diabetes technology A CARRUM Downs woman is appealing for the federal government to improve access to Flash Glucose Monitoring. Lucy Simons said her plans to have children with her partner were thrown up in the air because she could not get affordable access to it. “I want to have kids, so I need to get my glucose levels under control before I even start trying. And if I do have kids, and it’s $200 a month, where does that money come from,” Ms Simons said. “It’s not great because you have all the added extra costs of being pregnant. As a diabetic, I would be a high risk pregnancy and would need private doctors for best care.” Ms Simons said that using Flash Glucose Monitoring costs her approximately $2400 a year out of pocket. She called on the federal government to help by subsidising the cost. Flash glucose monitoring allows people with diabetes to test their glucose levels without pricking their finger. The National Diabetes Services Scheme announced in March that “the government intends to include the FreeStyle Libre flash glucose monitoring system on the list of products subsidised under the scheme. Negotiations with the product sponsor are ongoing, and further information will be provided once negotiations are complete.”

Frankston to get its own grammar school The teacher was giving a nature study lesson on a hen’s egg. Having elicited the fact that an egg is oval, he naturally inquired the reason for its shape. Much to his amusement a small child answered “Please, Sir, so that it will fit in an egg cup.” *** THE following letter has been received by the Editor: Through the columns of the “Standard” we wish to thank the parties who render valuable assistance to our pal who was stricken with influenza while on a holiday to Somerville during the Easter vacation. Unlimited praise is due to Mrs Meldrum and family, well known residents who did everything possible to relieve him of his sufferings and Dr Griffith for his prompt and kind attention. Also Mr Jack Webb for leaving his jinker and pony at our disposal. Yours etc., F.R. Webb & F.H. Swain, Richmond. *** A GRATEFUL Ratepaper writes: Great credit is due to the Frankston and Hastings Shire for the water trough erected on Cranbourne Road. When it is stated that recently the writer travelled 20 miles on one Main road without finding a trough to water his steed and eight miles in another direction, it can be readily seen what a boon to travellers is this work. It is so well constructed that the authorities evidently mean it to last for several generations. *** IT is safe to assume that if the Frankston Brass Band is established

it will receive solid support from local citizens, for undoubtedly a good band is of great benefit to any town. We are informed that one of the best Frankston barrackers and well wishers can put his hand on a score of pounds in donations if the Frankston Band comes here to stay. *** MRS J. H. Fielder who has successfully established a dancing class for children in Frankston, has consented to conduct an evening class for adults to commence on Tuesday 17th June, in the Mechanics. *** AT the special meeting of the Frankston Sub Branch R.S. & S.I.L.A. held on Monday’ night 19th. inst, the following office bearers were elected.—President, Mr A. Wilcox; Vice-Presidents — Messrs C. Bunney and W. Hanton; Treasurer — Mr A. Hill; Auditors — Messrs Carter and J.

Greene is returning from the front and is due to arrive in Melbourne on 30th May. *** PRIVATE Gus Goodwin who, is suffering from shell shock met with a painful accident on Saturday last.

MPNFL take out interleague clash INTERLEAGUE

By Brodie Cowburn THE MPNFL interleague side scored a win on Saturday, mounting a good comeback against the side from the Ovens and Murray Football League. Ovens and Murray looked the better side early on, and were up by three goals at half time. The MPNFL side came out with more fire and intensity in the second half, and wrestled back the lead with a seven goals to two third term. MPNFL’s run of momentum continued into the final quarter, and they ended up running away with the victory 10.11 (71) to 16.16 (112). Shane McDonald booted six goals for the representative side, while Shannon Gladman booted three. Picture: Andrew Hurst

Hillmen secure 200 point win DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn TWO games were played in the MPNFL this weekend as most of the league took time off to accommodate the interleague match. The marquee match of the weekend was at Pearcedale Recreation Reserve, as Pearcedale played host to Chelsea. Pearcedale were boosted by addition of former Essendon captain Brendon Goddard, who had signed to play in one match. Goddard was coming into the match on the back of a hand injury sustained in another league. Pearcedale have struggled in 2019 and only registered a solitary win. Unfortunately for them, even with the added boost of a former AFL star, they would not add to that win against the Seagulls. Chelsea flew out of the block with a nine goals to two first term, setting the tone for what would be a completely one sided game of football. Pearcedale never got close and were down by 80 points at half time. After the main break they were a little better, but still couldn’t stop the flow of goals. When the final siren sounded, Pearcedale would have been glad that what was supposed to be a good day for the club had come to an end. The final score read Pearcedale 8.6 (54) to Chelsea 25.14 (164). James Brain bootes six majors

for the Seagulls, while Jack Francis kicked five. Brad Clark also put on an impressive display in his side’s big win. It was a dark day for Crib Point as they travelled to take on the rampaging Red Hill. Red Hill have dominated teams regularly this season, and given Crib Point’s struggles the match was not expected to be competitive. Few could have predicted the scale of the loss. Red Hill were completely dominant, and went into half time up by 95 points. The Hillmen didn’t let up after the main break, and continued to punish the miserable Magpies. Another 18 second half goals sealed Crib Point’s fate, as they succumbed to defeat by over 200 points. The final score was red Hill 34.20 (224) to Crib Point 3.4 (22). Kane Hawkins, Zach Vines, Jonathon Ross, and Harry Larwill kicked five goals each.

Burgess grabs point for Langy SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie LANGWARRIN defender Luke Burgess snatched a point for the local outfit with an injury-time equaliser against Moreland City at Campbell Reserve last Saturday. Moreland took the lead in this NPL2 clash in the 5th minute after a quick break down the right and a cutback was met first time at the near post by striker Apai Ukono whose shot was turned in almost on the line by Burgess for an own goal. Three minutes later Moreland fans were incensed when referee Perry Mur turned down penalty appeals after Alex Van Heerwarden poleaxed an opponent inside the penalty box. It took until the 80th minute for Langy to level with a superbly taken strike on the right of the area from attacking midfielder Jordan Templin. Moreland’s Jacob Colosimo thought he’d given the home side all three points when he evaded two opponents on the left in the 88th minute then sent in a low shot that beat Langy keeper Fraser Maclaren at the near post. But Burgess had the last laugh when a deflected Callum Goulding shot fell to him inside the area and he thumped it into the back of the net. In NPLW news the first significant move in the Melissa Maizels makeover of Southern United came late last week when the local club signed experienced utility player Erin Clout who made her debut in Saturday night’s 2-0 loss to Geelong Galaxy United in Norlane. Canberra-born Clout, 26, has played with Canberra FC, Gungahlin United, APIA Leichhardt and Box Hill United and is a Player Relations and Engagements Executive with Professional Footballers Australia. Southern may make other player announcements shortly and is understood to be in talks with a defender to fill one of its visa vacancies. Maizels has only been at the coaching helm for a fortnight but already has seen major improvement. “The result (against Galaxy) can almost speak for itself but the improvement I’ve seen in the past two weeks with these girls has been nothing short of incredible,” she said. “They’ve been professional, dedicated and disciplined and I’m looking forward to seeing what we can achieve in the back half of the season.” Southern’s under-19s drew 1-1 with Galaxy with Talia Palmer scoring for Southern. The under-16s came back from 3-1 down to record a 4-3 win with all of Southern’s goals coming from ace striker Rhys McKenna. The under-14s won 1-0 with Rhiannon Kelleher scoring. In State 1 news Mornington turned in its best display of the season when it strolled past Beaumaris 4-2 at Beaumaris Secondary College on Sunday evening. Former Salford City striker Josh Hine enjoyed a mixed night with two first-half goals only to be sent off for a second caution in the 53rd minute. Sammy Orritt completed the win with a second-half double.

In State 2 news Peninsula Strikers and Brandon Park had to settle for a share of the spoils when they drew 2-2 at Centenary Park on Saturday. Strikers were outplayed in the first half but fought back from 1-0 down at half-time with two second-half goals within six minutes from star striker John Prescott. The English import scored in the 67th and 73rd minutes but a superb interpassing move by Brandon Park in the 80th minute was finished in style by Jarrah Clear. In State 3 news Skye United had super sub Daniel Attard to thank for its fourth straight win when it downed South Yarra 3-1 at Skye Recreation Reserve on Saturday. Skye started well and was rewarded in the 7th minute when Saj Sugrim’s endeavour saw him win back the ball then send in a deep cross that Mitch Blake headed home to make it 1-0. Skye continued to dominate proceedings and only had itself to blame for not putting the game to bed early as South Yarra equalised minutes before half time. Skye failed to clear from a corner and South Yarra’s Taylor Matthews finished off a square ball to drag the visitors back into the contest. South Yarra was denied a stonewall penalty on the hour mark as the ball clearly struck the hand of Skye defender Daniel Walsh only for the referee to ignore a chorus of appeals. In the 68th minute Skye gaffer Phil McGuinness threw on strikers Attard and Mikey Turner and the move paid dividends. Attard put Skye ahead in the 83rd minute when he poked home a loose ball in the box following a Marcus Anastasiou strike. The big man then sealed the points in injury time as he finished well following a Harrison Michaelis cut back. Frankston Pines recorded its first home win of the season when it defeated nine-man Diamond Valley United 4-1 last weekend. Pines went into the contest without midfielder Serge Yanez who had work commitments, central defender Daniel

Mota, whose wife was expecting their first child, and a trio of injured first teamers in Lewis Potter, Cedric Benza and Alex Bevacqua. They all could be available this weekend but senior coach Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor may be an absentee after securing a ticket to next Monday’s Championship play-off final at Wembley between his beloved Derby County and Aston Villa while striker Jason Bradbury is off on his honeymoon and will miss the next three matches. Diamond Valley keeper Peter Kourkoulis kept Pines at bay with two acrobatic saves in the opening exchanges but allowed the ball to escape his grasp in the 24th minute. Bradbury pounced but his goalbound strike was handled by Diamond Valley’s Abdelhadi Deroune leaving the referee little choice but to send him off and point to the spot. CJ Hodgson converted with aplomb sending Kourkoulis the wrong way. But a minute into the second half Diamond Valley hit back with a stunning break down the left and an inchperfect cross that Will Dixon headed over Pines keeper Alfonso Cardinale to make it 1-1. For the next 15 minutes Pines could have rewritten the manual on how to play against 10 men and look ordinary but Diamond Valley forward Marvin Masso had been booked in the first half and when he chose to throw himself on the ground when tackled he was booked for simulation and sent off. Pines midfielder Nick Simmons sent Joe O’Connor clear down the left in the 72nd minute and his cutback gave Hodgson a tap-in and the killer blow for the visitors came in the 83rd minute when a long ball from Connor McAndrews was lobbed on the volley by O’Connor over the stranded Kourkoulis to make it 3-1. Hodgson completed his hat-trick in the 91st minute with a low shot from the left of the area. Finishing a match with just nine men seemed to be the order of the day at Monterey Reserve last weekend as Pines’ reserves had two players sent off yet managed to record a remarkable 4-3

success. In a bizarre contest which featured goalkeeping heroics, player indiscipline and a Diamond Valley official who thought it okay to stroll onto the pitch during a second half flashpoint and argue with Pines players it took a late Leevy Gatteck goal to separate the sides and give the home team its maiden league win of 2019. In State 4 news Harry McCartney reports that Seaford United lost 5-3 at home to Sandown Lions in a controversial clash last weekend that saw both sides finish with nine men. Seaford took the lead in the 10th minute after Dylan Waugh was tripped as he prepared to score and player-coach Matt Morris-Thomas converted from the spot. Three minutes later a botched clearance from Sandown keeper Norman Vellien fell to the feet of Matthias Schwellenger and his precise lob over Vellien gave the home side a surprising 2-0 lead. Sandown hit back with a blistering drive from Yangdow Kong in the 30th minute. In the 42nd minute a challenge on Gatwetch Kuichloch saw him collide with the fence which incensed the visiting supporters who threatened to encroach on the pitch. A five-minute delay followed as the referee and local officials regained control. Right on half-time Waugh was brought down on the edge of the box and Sandown defender Tristan Contreras was sent off. Two minutes into the second half the 10 men equalised from a headed own goal by Dean Snoxwell. In the 50th minute a slick interpassing move by Sandown ended when Wumjock Gatluak calmly side-footed the ball past Seaford keeper Liam Swift to make it 3-2. But Seaford substitute Mitch Lander equalised three minutes later when he was credited with the final touch after Sandown failed to clear a MorrisThomas free-kick. This seesawing contest again turned in Sandown’s favour in the 55th minute

when Seaford defender Dion Brown gave away a penalty which was converted by Masur Kuei to make it 4-3. Seaford was reduced to 10 men when Morris-Thomas was given a second caution in the 65th minute and Sandown was reduced to nine men in the 71st minute when Yangdow Kong handled and received a second yellow card. But Sandown went further ahead in the 81st minute when Seaford failed to clear and Wari Puoch scored with a leftfoot shot from just inside the area. Brown was sent off in injury time and his departure sparked angry scenes as a group of Sandown supporters rushed towards him as he left the pitch forcing officials and players to step in and try and restore order. Shortly after referee Aurel Ioana blew for full time in what was one of the more difficult matches he’s likely to oversee. Meanwhile Baxter’s recent run of wins ended last Saturday when it lost 2-1 at home to Noble Park United. Baxter’s Lewis Gibson was denied from the penalty spot in the first half by an excellent save from Noble Park keeper Branislav Karaga and a Bogdan Graovac goal in the 35th minute allowed the visitors to go into the break in front. New signing Lawrence Komba from Dingley Stars equalised five minutes into the second half when he took advantage of Noble Park’s inability to deal with a cross and scored from inside the six-yard box. The pivotal moment came in the 86th minute with a controversial penalty decision and Aleksandar Djukic scored the winner from the spot. Baxter continues to build its first team squad and signed Komba and two other players late last week. Utility Liam Stuckenschmidt and left-sided player Ehab Hilal have joined from Frankston Pines. In State 5 news Aspendale Stingrays recorded their biggest win of the season when they hammered visiting Bunyip District 8-1 last weekend. Aspendale had this wrapped up when it led 4-1 at half-time and the home side’s goals came from James Macnab (2), substitutes Luiz Dobre (2) and Ben Garside-Weinert, Ryan Mravljak, Sam Timuska-Carr and Adrian Pace. This week’s games: WEDNESDAY, 7.30pm: South Melbourne v Langwarrin (Lakeside Stadium, FFA Cup round 7). FRIDAY, 8.30pm: Springvale City v Seaford Utd (Ross Reserve pitch 1). SATURDAY, 3pm: Mornington v St Kilda (Dallas Brooks Park), Mooroolbark v Peninsula Strikers (Esther Park), Skye Utd v Diamond Valley Utd (Skye Recreation Reserve), Elwood City v Frankston Pines (Elwood Park), Sandown Lions v Baxter (Ross Reserve pitch 2), Somerville Eagles v Hampton Park Utd (Tyabb Central Reserve), Old Mentonians v Rosebud (Mentone Grammar), Casey Panthers v Aspendale Stingrays (Prospect Hill Reserve).

John Meagher joins racing’s Hall of Fame By Ben Triandafillou MELBOURNE Cup winning trainer John Meagher has come a long way since landing his first winner at Balnarring in 1971. So much so that the champion trainer was inducted into the Australian Racing Hall Of Fame on Friday 17 May. The trainer of more than 25 Group One victories including the 1985 Melbourne Cup with the Lloyd Williamsowned, What A Nuisance, and the 2000 Singapore Gold Cup with Kim’s Angel, Meagher joins nine other inductees to enter the Hall Of Fame this year. Meagher, whose two sons Chris and Daniel now train in their own right respectively at Mornington and in Singapore, has taken a step down from training the past few years but has helped oversee proceedings at his son Chris Meagher’s set-up in Roberts Road, Mornington. Meagher started out as an apprenticed jockey initially with trainer Bob Clarton in Mentone in the early-1960’s before moving to Bill Murrell and George McCormick to further his skills. Meagher kicked off his own training career in 1971 before landing his first winner with a horse called Ritzali (ridden by Alan Pickles) at Balnarring the very same year. Top sprinter Maniple was an early prolific winner for the humble horseman as he patiently

pendently in 1991 and had an early surprise winner when Connorvila took out the Grand National Hurdle at Flemington the same year. The run of success continued as Star of the Realm won the 1991 Victoria Derby and Ready To Explode won the 1991 Caulfield Guineas. Other top Meagher horses in the decade included Golden Sword (1993 Epsom and Toorak Handicaps) and Daacha (1995 Sydney Cup) among others. Meagher also memorably trained five winners on the final day of the 1993 Flemington Spring Carnival. Making the move in 1999, Meagher trained for 11 years over in Singapore and produced nearly 600 winners including Kim’s Angel in the 2000 Singapore Gold Cup. He returned to Australia in 2011 and established a training partnership with his sons Chris and Dan and set-up stables in both Victoria and Queensland. It can’t be understated the influence that Meagher also had in the jockey ranks as he mentored many champion jockeys with likes of Steven King, Brett Prebble and David Charles among others. Nowadays, the true trainer keeps a keen interest in his son, Chris’, stable by providing sound advice that he has obtained during his decorated career in racing.

began to build his reputation in the training ranks. Jack’s Doubt was another major winner for Meagher during the early part of his career as he took out the Great Southern Steeplechase at Mornington in 1972. Meagher’s first Group One training victory came with Ranger’s Son in the 1983 Marlboro Cup (Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes) at Caulfield before




Lloyd Williams engaged Meagher as his private trainer. Meagher continued to train for other owners as well during this period. What A Nuisance won the first sponsored, million-dollar Melbourne Cup in 1985 for the stable, with continuing success for the partnership following in the next seven years. Drought won the 1986 Peter Pan Stakes and was narrowly beaten


by Raveneux in the Victoria Derby, while Major Drive claimed the 1987 Sydney Cup for the team. Meagher relocated his stables from Epsom to Chicquita Lodge at Flemington in 1989. Between successes were near misses in big races with imported horses including Regimental March, Shantaroun and Nayrizi. Meagher resumed training inde-

Wider and longer than its predecessor, the Touareg Launch Edition is nevertheless lighter thanks to the combination of aluminium and high-tech steel used in its construction.

tion’s cabin is as practical as it is classy, there’s an impressive 1800 litres of boot space available with the rear seat folded. Few vehicles feature an exceptional array of technological innovation in one package quite like the Touareg Launch Edition. Whether for occupant convenience, comfort or safety, the technological aids in Volkswagen’s latest SUV put it at the pinnacle of its class. There’s no limit to the multimedia options available to you courtesy of Volkswagen’s pioneering 9.2-inch Discover Pro navigation system with Ges-

ture Control and Voice Control. Other driver aids have been fitted to make driving and life’s little challenges - such as parking - that much simpler. Also included is Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), an intelligent system that not only maintains a speed set by the driver but keeps a safe distance from the vehicle in front by modulating braking and accelerating as required. Negotiating shopping centre carparks is a cinch with Park Assist. It uses Rear View Camera and front and rear parking sensors to carefully guide you into, or out of, tight parking spaces. Peace of mind is yours when you

drive the new Touareg Launch Edition. A comprehensive range of active and passive safety features have been included in Volkswagen’s latest SUV, all of which have been designed and tested with one objective in mind - keeping vehicle occupants and other road users safe. It’s apt that a vehicle as technologically superior as the Touareg Launch Edition should receive safety systems never seen before in the Touareg range. Among the compelling new technology featured in the vehicle is Front Cross Traffic Assist, Predictive Pedestrian Protection, and Traffic Jam Assist. The Emergency Assist function uses ACC and Lane Assist to detect steering braking or acceleration inactivity on the part of the driver, such as when the driver falls asleep or is incapacitated. The system will initiate an escalating series of attempts to alert the driver before performing a safe emergency stop as a last resort. Touareg Launch Edition’s athletic styling and broad stance are the first indication of the performance potential lurking within Volkswagen’s latest premium SUV. With its 3.0-litre turbocharged TDI engine capable of providing an impressive 190kW of torque, this is a vehicle that has been built to be driven and enjoyed. With its combination of precision and prowess, Volkswagen’s newest Touareg lays down the performance gauntlet to its rivals in the premium SUV class.
