CEO pulls the pin early Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au FRANKSTON Council CEO Dennis Hovenden has called time on his tenure despite having four months left on his contract. Mr Hovenden’s four year contract was set to expire in October. On 19 June he announced his resignation effective from 30 June. The Frankston council CEO earns $325,000 annual remuneration including pre-tax payments on a vehicle. Mr Hovenden turned down a two per cent pay rise last year. When asked if Mr Hovenden had his contract paid out, the mayor Michael O’Reilly said “Dennis will receive all his statutory entitlements”. When asked why he resigned just months before the end of his contract, Mr Hovenden provided a short statement to The Times that said “I have enjoyed working with council and the staff over the past seven years. I now look forward to taking a break with my family and wish Frankston City Council every success for the future”. Councillors voted in April to advertise the position externally. That meeting was held in closed council, as is customary when discussing personnel matters at council. A temporary CEO will be installed until the end of October, when council expects to appoint someone to the position permanently. Two special meetings of council

have been called this month to discuss “confidential personnel matters”. One was on 11 June and one on 24 June. Frankston Council did not comment when asked if those meetings related to the CEO. Mr Hovenden arrived at Frankston Council in October 2012 after resigning from his position as CEO of Swan Hill Rural City Council. He signed a four year contract in 2015. In 2017, the state government appointed a municipal monitor to investigate and report on council’s governance. The monitor’s stint at Frankston Council is due to finish this month. Cr O’Reilly said “I have been fortunate to work alongside Dennis for seven years, and through this time have been impressed by his genuine heartfelt concern for the wellbeing of the community and passion for achieving great outcomes for Frankston City.” “Attracting someone with the skills and knowledge Dennis has to offer will be difficult to say the least, and whomever is successful in being appointed to the position will have some big shoes to fill,” he said. “Dennis’ current contract expires in October this year, and while in April a majority of councillors voted in favour of advertising the position externally, I had very much hoped that we would see Dennis retain the role and be given the opportunity to continue his valuable work.” Continued Page 7

Unclear future for gymnastics and tennis clubs Public invited into

police network

Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au THE future of the Frankston Tennis Club and Frankston Gymnastic Clubs is up in the air, after a meeting between the clubs and Frankston Council failed to come up with a concrete solution to Centenary Park’s lack of funding. Council has spent $247,000 in ratepayer funding on planning and concept design work for the Centenary Park redevelopment, which had been touted by Frankston Council as a new home for the tennis and gymnastics club. Frankston Tennis Club and Frankston East Tennis Club would merge as part of the move. The land that Frankston Tennis Club is currently based on is set to make way as part of an expansion to the Frankston Hospital. Frankston Council pledged $11 million to Centenary Park’s redevelopment, and was seeking $8.05 million from state and federal governments. Neither level of government has yet stumped up the cash. With the funding not in the bank, council has begun discussing alternate options for the clubs. They held a meeting with representatives from Frankston Tennis Club, Frankston East Tennis Club, Bayside Gymnastics Club and Tennis Victoria. The mayor Michael O’Reilly said “with works set to commence within the coming 12 months on the Frankston Hospital expansion, a decision needs to be made in consultation with stakeholders as to what our next steps are for the relocation of Frankston Tennis Club members.” “It was decided at the meeting that officers will finalise concept design work on interim refurbishment options at the Frankston East Tennis Club site to house both clubs, whilst further detailed work on council’s forthcoming tennis strategy is completed,” he said. In regards to the future of the gymnastics club, Cr O’Reilly said “no better interim arrangements

FRANKSTON police are inviting members of the public to have their say on tackling crime by joining the Frankston First Community Network. The network has been launched in an effort by police to engage with the community on local crime issues. Frankston local area commander Inspector Paul Cripps said the network aimed to “bring together community leaders from across Frankston.” “Through the Frankston First Community Network we aim to build on the strong relationships police have with our wonderfully diverse community,” Inspector Cripps said. “This is a great opportunity to interact with your local police, gain a greater understanding of other community groups and have an impact on issues which affect the Frankston community.” The network was set up in response to the results of a survey. Over 2500 people responded to the survey, with burglary offences, illicit drugs and dangerous driving named as the most prominent concerns among residents. A launch event will be held on Wednesday, 26 June, at 12.30pm at the Mechanics Hall in Frankston. The Frankston First Community Network will run until the end of October.

Complex family ties can lead to abuse of elders

Road safety success: McClelland College students Caitlin and Sarah took part in the Fit To Drive year 11 workshop. Pic: Supplied

Safe driving message reaches 100,000 THE VicRoads Fit To Drive year 11 workshop has now been brought to over 100,000 students, with the group celebrating the milestone at McClelland College, Langwarrin. The program was started by former McClelland College principal Graham Spencer in response to a spike in road deaths involving young people in Frankston and on the Mornington Peninsula. The workshop has been developed and has grown over the past five years, and on 19 June returned to McClelland

College to mark its 100,000th student reached. Fit To Drive foundation CEO Debbie Collings said “the F2D year 11 workshop was founded on a community’s passion and commitment to act to keep their young people safe on the road.” “That same commitment is reflected in every community we’ve travelled to since and that’s why we’ve been able to reach 100,000 Victorian year 11s in under five years,” she said. “Now more than ever, we have to keep listening to young people’s ex-

periences and perceptions of road use. Most importantly, we have to keep engaging them in coming up with the solutions to keep themselves and their mates safe.” McClelland College year 12 student Sarah Garnier completed the program last year. She said “a lot of our friends are getting their P’s now which is exciting. We are able to put into perspective what we learnt in these workshops and apply it to real life and I think it’s helped the overall safety of our friends.”

THE COMPLEXITIES of parent-child relationships family conflicts and rising living costs are some of the hidden factors behind elder abuse being uncovered by Peninsula Community Legal Centre. “Without adequate education of what constitutes this form of abuse, the perpetrator may be unaware their actions are abusive,” the centre’s legal services director Kate Ross said. PCLC says that Senior Rights Victoria’s help line data for the past two years points to the fact that 90 per cent of alleged perpetrators of elder abuse were related to the older person; often an adult son or daughter, or estranged ex-partner. “Part of the reason this form of abuse is under reported is the disbelief that a family member could behave in such a predatory way,” Ms Ross said. “The difficulty of raising the issue with the family member, let alone instigating legal action, is in many cases too much to bear.” Ms Ross said older people were sometimes alienated and disadvantaged in today’s technology-focused society which “enables the younger

generations to have the upper hand”. “In this environment, older people can be treated with contempt and seen as a waste of space; yet the vast majority of seniors have paid their taxes over many years and contributed much to the lives of their children,” she said. Ms Ross said PCLC saw elder abuse as a form of family violence, although “risk factors, relationship dynamics and outcomes are unique”. “The particular nature of the parent-child relationship and how it is affected by external pressure due to family conflict; the rising cost of living, the care needs of the parent, mental and physical issues of the child, can influence elder abuse. A history of family conflict or violence can also affect the parent-child relationship,” Ms Ross said. Peninsula Community Legal Centre provides free legal advice about family issues, fines and tenancy issues.

South East Water, waste transfer station among ‘achievements’ Continued from Page 1 Cr O’Reilly said that Mr Hovenden’s tenure as CEO featured a number of “achievements”. “Some highlights that spring to mind include the delivery of Frankston City’s waste transfer station and the attraction of South East Water, and its 700 employees to Frankston City,” he said. “Dennis also oversaw the construction of Peninsula Aquatic Recreation Centre and was instrumental in demonstrating to local government that this type of operation can be both an industry leader, and financially beneficial. “Dennis was pivotal in championing priority

projects, resulting in more than $1 billion worth of election commitments in Frankston City during his tenure, including countless major projects such as the Frankston Station precinct redevelopment, rail electrification from Frankston to Hastings and major road upgrades including the duplication of Lathams Road in Seaford and Hall Road in Carrum Downs. “Dennis will be greatly missed by staff from across the organisation. It’s rare to find a CEO as approachable, down to earth and personable as Dennis is. His door is always open and he makes time for everyone.”

THE story of The Sapphires is set to be told at the Frankston Arts Centre next month. The now famous Australian play, written by Tony Briggs and first performed in 2004, tells the tale of four young Indigenous Australian women who tour Vietnam during the war. The four performers travel across

the country to sing. The play is set in 1968, a year after the 1967 referendum that expanded the rights of Indigenous Australians. The play was adapted into a feature film in 2011, and won a Helpmann Award for best play in 2005. It will be performed at the Kingston Arts Centre by the HIT Productions theatre com-

pany. The company has taken the production across Queensland and New South Wales this year. Jade Lomas-Ronan, Lorinda May Merrypor, Mindy Kwaten, and Matilda Brown perform in the lead roles. The Sapphires will take to the stage on 16 July. Tickets at artscentre. frankston.vic.gov.au

Three arrested POLICE have arrested three people after an alleged crime spree through Frankston on 17 June. Attempted carjacking, robbery, affray, and assault are among the charges laid. At around 8pm 17 June, a victim was allegedly knocked unconscious outside the Frankston Bowls Club. Later in the evening a victim in a Toyota Camry on Gould Street was targeted. A 48-year-old and her 10 year-old son were in the car. The alleged offender leant into the car and demanded the keys from the mother. The alleged carjacking attempt was unsuccessful after the victim chased the offender away. The alleged offender met up with two other people and went towards McDonalds. Police said they slapped another victim near the Yacht Club and stole money from them. Police arrested a 16-year-old Noble Park boy, an 18-year-old Morwell man, and a 19-year-old Cranbourne man. They were charged and remanded in custody.

Manslaughter charge

on 20 October 2017. A 51-year-old man died after that alleged incident. The 19-year-old Eildon man appeared at Shepparton Magistrates’ Court on 21 June.

Credit card thief hunted POLICE are looking to identify a man who stole and used a credit card in Carrum Downs during the early hours of 10 June. Frankston Crime Investigation Unit detectives believe that the credit card was stolen from a parked car on Oberon Drive, Carrum Downs, overnight between 9 June and 10 June. The stolen card was used to buy $150 worth of cigarettes at a Frankston-Dandenong Road service station just after 5am on 10 June. Investigators have released an image (below) 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.

A MAN has been arrested and charged with manslaughter following the death of a 51-year-old Frankston man in 2019. A 19-year-old Eildon man was arrested and charged by homicide squad detectives on 21 June. Police had been investigating an alleged physical altercation outside a licensed premises on Goulbourn Valley Highway, just before midnight

POLICE, SES, and investigators attend the scene of a stabbing in Chelsea Heights on 18 June. Police want Frankston man Alex Manuel (inset) for questioning.

Fatal stabbing investigated A MAN has died after being stabbed in the head in Chelsea Heights during the early hours of 18 June. Police were called to the car park of the Chelsea Heights Hotel at around 3.35am. When they arrived they found 44-year-old Bonbeach man Ricky Thompson with a stab wound to his head. Mr Thompson was taken to hospital and died on 19 June. Twenty-seven-year-old Frankston man Alex Manuel has been identified by police as a “person of interest”. Police are appealing for public assistance

to help locate the man, who was captured on CCTV footage. Detective Inspector Andrew Stamper said “we’re seeking assistance from anyone who may know Alex’s whereabouts in particular his family, friends or associates.” “We know he frequents the Frankston area but believe he may have gone to ground. I’d also like to make it clear that if he’s being harboured by someone, that person risks committing a serious offence as well,” he said. “We are calling on Alex to make

contact with police himself, police are actively searching for him and it will only be a matter of time before we catch up with him.” As of 20 June no arrests had been made and the investigation into the incident was ongoing. A Victoria Police spokesperson said it is believed that the parties are known to each other. Anyone who witnessed the incident or with further information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. A confidential crime report can be submitted online at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au

New MP must work hard to tackle drugs in community I congratulate Peta Murphy in succeeding Chris Crewther as our new Federal Member. I implore Peta to make one of her first priorities as our new representative to uncover where federal funding is being allocated to combat illicit drug use in our region, namely the ongoing increase in methamphetamine (also known as ‘ice’) cultivation and usage in Frankston and the wider region. $300 million dollars was announced in 2015 by the federal government to increase prevention and treatment to reduce the rate of ‘ice’ addiction throughout Australia. However, local crime and quantitative data indicates that narcotic use continues to rise in the Frankston municipality. Mostly concerning are statistics coming out of Frankston North where, in some offence categories, increases in offending rates have reached triple digits. As a city councillor, I have not seen tangible trickle down evidence of the $300 million dollars that the federal government earmarked for communities under duress due to the scrounge of ‘ice’ and other illegal substances. Former Frankston Citizen of the Year Reverend Angel Roldan continues to advocate for a regional rehabilitation / detox facility for drug users wanting to get clean. Thus would be an excellent use of public monies. Last week Frankston City Council was successful in passing (almost unanimously) a national resolution at the Australian Local Government Association Conference in Canberra which called on the federal government to ensure public monies intended to fight ‘ice’ and narcotics are expended in consultation with local communities to maximise both breadth and reach. Therefore, Peta, I ask that you keep the

federal government accountable in its promise to tackle narcotics in our community, as well as work with them and the other tiers of government to decrease drug use in Frankston and the greater region. Kris Bolam, councillor North-West Ward

Money to preserve What happened to pure unrestrained giving by those that have spare? Philanthropy is the name, but we have a lack of it around the Mornington Peninsula now that the late and much loved Dame Elisabeth Murdoch has passed on. Frankston and Langwarrin have visible signs of her generosity and, hopefully, Cruden Farm and the McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park will be maintained. Where are such magnanimous donations to the net public good around our peninsula? Do we rest on the laurels of Beleura, McCrae Cottage, Sages Farm, The Briars and Coolart and not make the effort? A wonderful restoration of the Norman Lodge historical cliff top heritage building has been completed and we, the patient public, have to wait until the National Trust ( Victorian branch) and the current owner of this private land adjacent to the Nepean Highway Mt Eliza, actually allow us to see this important public colonial establishment. Mt Eliza has other important listed historical buildings as well, including the listed Ranelagh Estate, the Moondah Hotel, the Gate House, several cliff top houses such as Rubra and, of course, the colonial Anglican church of St James the Less on Nepean Highway. Surely some well meaning local citizen with access to surplus money could consider

making some ongoing and community minded gesture to return their hard earned assets to the people of the peninsula in the form of property purchases. Kunyung Road is such an area where a genuine intervention of local money could preserve its current open sea and cliff views, the variety of local flora and fauna, the koala habitat, the flying foxes, the southern croaker frogs, the Sir Reginald Ansett-inspired open pastures, and the most fortunately located state primary school in Victoria, if not Australia. Ian Morrison, Mt Eliza Community Alliance

Guessing with quotes Many ratepayers will know that extracting information from Mornington Peninsula Shire officers can be more painful than pulling teeth. Occasionally though, they drop their guard and you get two very different answers to the same question. Facing an exorbitantly large fee to have a footpath constructed residents emailed different shire officers inquiring about the cost they faced. A senior shire project manager stated that the “special charge” would be $4531.24. Absolute precision. Around the same time his superior, a director, refusing to answer the question, indicated that “… it is impossible to know the exact final cost of a project in advance”. They can’t both be correct, but the smart money is on the first answer. Geoff Allen, Sorrento

Council’s class war Boat shed owners are not all wealthy people. Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor Cr David Gill’s comments about boat shed owners smells very like then Labor leader Bill Shorten [during the recent federal election campaign] when they tried to establish a class war in our community, but failed. The majority of boat sheds have been in the same family for 20-30 years and should not be treated like cash cows to make up for socialist

Adani good, and bad Now that the Adani coal mine has been approved, the good news is that there will be 100 permanent jobs created by Adani once the mine is built and operational. All the rednecks in Queensland are celebrating. Now for the not so good news; Australia has decided to destroy our kids and grandkids’ future right around the globe by making it possible for the coal from Adani’s mine and the many more that will be opened in the same area, to be burnt. This in turn will increase CO2 in our atmosphere and so hasten global warming to such an extent our planet will become uninhabitable in the very near future. Thanks LNP and Queensland Labor for your “forward thinking” policies. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring

Painful viewing Nothing matters? At best, wise words prior to death. Everything matters. Triptych, from the Greek adjective three-fold, in my case pain and suffering over two days, albeit in the scheme of things, insignificant. Where to advertise one’s angst, to cry pain, than in the letters pages of our healthy The News? Collingwood’s Jaidyn Stephenson’s unfair suspension via the AFL’s (Fort Knox?) anti-gambling hypocrites; our home affairs minister suggesting women using rape and abortion as a ploy to get to Australia; the current suggestion to watch AFL football (or any football apparently) with buttoned-up lips. There, and I haven’t even mentioned Adam Goodes, Rosie Batty or John Setka. I feel better now. Cliff Ellen, Rye

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Benefit concert for motor accident injured Compiled by Cameron McCullough THERE was a splendid attendance at the Mechanics’ Institute, on Tuesday night when members and supporters of the Frankston Football Club assembled to discuss the position in relation to the regretable motor car accident whereby several Frankston players were more or less injured. The proceedings were animated and there appeared to be a general desire to adopt the best means of affording relief to the incapacitated. Mr E. J. Parker (president of the club) presided, and he struck the right note when he opened proceedings by calling for cheers in connection with the signing of Peace. All present responded lustily and cheers for the Allies followed. The chairman briefly explained the position in connection with the club members who had suffered by the accident. He invited suggestions as to the best means to adopt to raise money to pay medical fees and other expenses. He also explained that an advertisement had been inserted in the Metropolitan papers thanking the unknown gentleman who had so kindly removed the injured men from the scene of the accident to Mornington. They had not secured the number of this gentleman’s car, and all efforts to trace him had been unavailing up to the present. Mrs Burton moved that a minstrel concert consisting of local artists be held, with a dance to follow. Seconded by Mr Murphy. The chairman said Mr Cuthbert had suggested a picture show from 8 till 10

and dance from 10 till 12. Mr Murphy thought that pictures did not draw well in Frankston. Mr C. Wood said the machine from Langwarrin camp could be borrowed. As an alternative he suggested that the Scottish concert party be asked to give an entertainment. Mr J. Cameron was in favor for a straight out canvas of the town for subscriptions. The motion was carried and the arrangements as to date of concert and other details were left in the hands of the ladies committee. Mr Murphy said a benefit football match was likely to prove successful but his motion to arrange same was not seconded. Mr J. Cameron moved that the town be canvassed for subscriptions at once and that the following be appointed collectors: Messrs Verney, Murphy, Tivendale, Parker, Hartland and the mover. Seconded by Mr Smith and carried. The chairman stated that the two collection boxes had yielded £2 0.11½d. *** AT the Frankston Police Court on Monday, before Messrs C. G. V. Williams (chairman) and W. J. Oates Js.P., a young man named Herbert Thomas Harker was charged with stealing the property belonging to Archibald Raseby and William Tute. Senior Constable Bray, who conducted the prosecution said that on the 10th June the accused entered the tent occupied by Raseby and Tute at the water works and removed wearing apparel, other articles and cash to a value of nearly £20. It appeared that the theft took place while the men were at work.

Constable Hanlon deposed to the arrest of the culprit in Bourke St, when he was wearing a suit belonging to Tute. When taxed with the theft he admitted his guilt and said he had pawned some of the stolen articles. The missing property was recovered. Accused pleaded guilty and asked for leniency. He had only borrowed the property intending to return same. He claimed to be a returned soldier but had lost his discharge. The Bench imposed a fine of £10 in default 2 months imprisonment on each charge. There were two charges. The chairman remarked on the seriousness of the offence and said that men who went to work and had to leave their camps all day must be protected. *** ON Monday night, at about 11 o’clock, residents of Frankston were aroused by the ringing of the fire-bell. The knowing ones smiled and murmured “Peace celebrations” and prepared to resume their fireside slumbers. There was an insistent note in the clanging of the bell, however, that finally drew a few householders into the street and coaxed them to the spot where half a dozen residents were handling water buckets and giving the finishing touches to a dying conflagration. The scene of the outbreak was in an old disused shed, situate between Mr Murphy’s dairy and Mr Shannon’s store, in Bay street. Mr Macafee, who happened to be passing, noticed smoke issuing from the shed, and he quickly raised the alarm. Mr Murphy was early on the scene and applied the first bucket of water to the steadily growing flames.

Messrs Cooper, Macafee, Shannon and others also rendered good assistance. Fortunately there was little, or no wind, and the fire was quickly extinguished. The shed, which was in poor repair contained only a number of packing cases and a quantity of old straw. The origin of the fire has not been accounted for. *** FRANKSTON Cemetery. To the editor. Sir, May I through the medium of your paper direct attention to the vandalism exhibited in the local cemetery whereby the majority of the of shapely and beautiful sheoak and native cherry trees have been destroyed and the beauty of the enclosure altogether marred. I know not who is responsible for firing the reserve, and thus rendering these once beautiful trees fit only for firewood, but someone should be held accountable for the havoc occasioned. One would naturally expect that in deference to the feelings of the relatives of the dead to the necessity for protecting the fences around, and plantings on graves, there would have been some regulation prohibiting the use of fire in the reserve, and, if such a regulation be in existence, one should be equally justified in asking why any violation thereof has been allowed. Whether done under the pretext of being the at easiest method of clearing grass and undergrowth or from motives less praiseworthy, the fact remains that irremediable damage has been done, and it is a matter for grave surprise that before resorting to the use of fire no provision was made to protect these trees which for about forty years have

Plant Sale

been the admiration of visitors to the reserve, and the like of which, grace no cemetery within a radius of fifty miles. As a lover of local beauty spots I deplore this mutilation which could and should have been avoided. If it is needful to denude this reserve of its timber surely the best rather than the worst trees should have been retained and instead of one or two privileged persons getting the value of the firewood (which I presume is or could be retailed in the township for 10s 6d per ton) should not the work of denudation be done with method under the supervision of a competent and responsible Shire officer, and every ratepayer have an equal chance to bid by auction or by tender for the firewood thus obtained? The amount of money thus raised would serve to defray the cost of clearer delineation of roads, pathways, alignment of graves and denomination divisions within the reserve upon which to the present little attention has been bestowed. As a rate payer then and one interested in native trees I herewith raise my protest against further vandalism in the destruction of the beautiful she oak trees that remain and hope that in further setting out of grave lines which must inevitably ensue the Powers that be will not overlook the desirability of having these lines so laid out that as many of these beautiful trees as possible may be retained. Thanking you Sir in anticipation, I am, JOSEPH R. McCOMB . *** FROM the pages of the Mornington Standard, 28 June 1919

Sharks snatch win against Stonecats DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn POWERHOUSE clubs Sorrento and Frankston YCW faced off in an epic clash on Saturday, with the Sharks just getting over the line for the win. Sorrento made the most of their opportunities in front of goal early on, and led by four points at quarter time. Despite being behind, the Stonecats had nearly double the amount of scoring opportunities. The Stonecats performed a little better in the second term, and by half time had wrestled back the lead. Both sides traded blows in a tight and tense affair. YCW had plenty of chances to get away to a lead, but were too wasteful in front of goal to capitalise. At three-quarter time scores were level, with the game poised to go down to the wire. The game remained close and when the final siren sounded, it was Sorrento who just had their noses in front. They delighted the home crowd with a 15.5 (95) to 12.18 (90) win. Leigh Poholke was excellent in front of goal for the Sharks, kicking five. Chad Harris was also named among the best. The win sees Sorrento stay equal top of the ladder. Frankston YCW are faring far worse, and sit a game out of the top five. At Alexandra Park, Mornington’s hopes of avoiding relegation were dealt a major blow. The Bulldogs took on fellow strugglers EdithvaleAspendale. Both sides have faced tough seasons, but the Bulldogs came into the clash rooted to the bottom of the ladder, A win over Edi-Asp would have been crucial to their hopes of moving upwards.

Mornington looked up for the challenge all afternoon, and held a two goal lead going into the final term. The game ended in heartbreak for the Bulldogs, after Edi-Asp got a run of momentum going and eventually took the lead. Edithvale-Aspemndale snatched victory 10.14 (74) to 11.14 (80). With just one win to their name this year, the Bulldogs have a mountain of work ahead of them to stay in the top division. Dromana had a disappointing afternoon at home, going down to Rosebud. The Tigers have relished life in the top division this year, and have proven to be quite hard to beat. The Buds looked ready to battle though, and led by 26 at the half time break. Dromana were able to chip the lead back to 13 points heading into the final term, but ran out of steam. They kicked just one behind in the final quarter and eventually were defeated by Rosebud 9.9 (63) to 14.14 (98). At Eric Bell Reserve, Pines got the better of Mt Eliza in a scrappy affair. The Pythons got the jump on the Redlegs early, and didn’t give up their lead all day. Mt Eliza struggled to find the scoreboard, and didn’t have any player kick more than one goal for the afternoon. Pines secured all four points with a 9.13 (67) to 7.9 (51) win. Lachlan Marshall was named as Pines’ best. A four goal haul from Trent DennisLane helped Bonbeach to a win over Frankston Bombers. The Bombers were the better side early and led at quarter time, but a scoreless second term sealed their fate. The final score read Bonbeach 10.12 (72) to Frankston Bombers 7.3 (45).

Seagulls soar in battle of the birds DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn CHELSEA have claimed a nail biting victory over Somerville at Chelsea Reserve, coming from behind to nab a five point win. Somerville started off on the right foot, and looked comfortably the better side at the half time break. Somerville led by 15 going into the third term. In the third quarter Chelsea chipped the lead back, and only trailed by five heading into the final term. Somerville couldn’t stop their wave of momentum, and eventually the Seagulls escaped with a thrilling victory. Somerville kicked just one goal in a wasteful second half. The final score read Chelsea 9.9 (63) to Somerville 7.16 (58). Curtis Bywater booted five goals for Chelsea. He now has 10 in his last three games. Red Hill put on another defensive masterclass at home, holding Langwarrin to just three goals in their clash on Saturday.

Tyabb troubles: The Yabbies could not get the better of Seaford at home. Picture: Andrew Hurst

Both sides had difficulties finding the scoreboard for the afternoon. Langwarrin only kicked two goals in the first half, and trailed by 20 at half time. Things didn’t get much better for the Kangaroos, as they added just one goal to their tally before full time. Red Hill eventually claimed a 30 point win 8.5 (53) to 3.5 (23). Daniel Allsop, Marcus Del Lago, and Daniel Frampton were among Red Hill’s best. They went on top of the ladder with Karingal having a bye on the weekend. At Thomas Barclay Oval, Hastings were boosted by the return of Brendan Fevola. They made quick work of Crib Point. Hastings skipped out to an early lead over the struggling Magpies, and never looked in too much trouble. The Blues kept in control the whole afternoon and eventually claimed a 67 point win. Fevola contributed two goals for the afternoon. Luke Hewitt and Caleb Watkins scored three each. The final scoreboard read Hastings 15.16 (106) to Crib Point 5.9 (39). At Bunguyan Reserve, Tyabb endured a difficult day at home. They were defeated by Seaford. The Yabbies started poorly and scored just one goal in the first half, they improved but were defeated 7.5 (47) to 13.12 (90). Frankston Times 25 June 2019

Skye United surges into second SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie SKYE United hammered Whitehorse United 5-0 away from home last weekend and leapfrogged its opponent into second spot in State 3 SouthEast. Skye midfielder Mark O’Connor was suspended and recent recruit Alex Rojas made his first start for the club. Skye’s bench was boosted by the returns of Jack Gallagher from overseas and Maxim Avram from injury. The visitors controlled the opening exchanges but chances went begging for Mitch Blake and Daniel Attard. This nearly proved costly but Skye had Jonathan Crook to thank as he kept the hosts at bay for the remainder of the half and on the stroke of half-time a fine cross from Jason Nowakowski saw a clever looping header from Blake put the visitors ahead against the run of play. The second half was a completely different story as Skye’s forward pressure took its toll on the Whitehorse defence. In the 62nd minute another Nowakowski assist enabled Blake to break the defensive line to make it 2-0 and six minutes later he had his hattrick after Nowakowski cleverly played him in with a quickly taken free-kick. Attard got in on the act in the 83rd minute as substitute Gallagher put him through and the big man curled it round Whitehorse goalkeeper Michael Van Eijk. In the 89th minute Attard got his brace after being sent clear by substitute Aaryn Rix to complete the rout. “Our fitness has been a huge part of our success lately but that also comes with the desire and determination that these boys have,” Skye senior coach Phil McGuinness said. “I think our biggest asset is the pressure we put our opponents under when they have the ball and we can do it for 90 minutes and that’s a massive credit to the hard work the lads have put in so far.” Promotion has always been on the agenda for McGuinness and assistant Stephen Duffy. “There’s still plenty of football to be played and some very good teams battling it out for the top two spots but if we end up being one of them I’ll be the happiest man in the southeast I think,” McGuinness added. In other State 3 news Frankston Pines downed Monash Uni 3-0 at Monterey Reserve on Friday night. Pines fashioned the best two chances of the first half but neither Travis Ernsdoerfer nor CJ Hodgson could capitalise. That changed 10 minutes into the second half when a superb through ball by midfielder Nick Simmons sent Hodgson motoring down the left before chipping the ball across goal to Ernsdoerfer who chested down and drilled a half-volley past Monash keeper Alex Grantham. Connor McAndrews’ floated cross from the right in the 73rd minute was met by a superbly timed Hodgson leap and a looping header that made it 2-0.

Bailey Atkinson came off the bench in the 75th minute and was only on the pitch for a few seconds when Kevin Brown sent him clear and Atkinson’s calm finish from 10 metres silenced the Monash coach and sealed the visitors’ fate. In NPLW news Southern United’s home clash with Box Hill United was called off on Saturday due to the condition of the Monterey Reserve main pitch. The previous night two matches involving cotenant Frankston Pines had taken place (seniors and reserves) and prior to having the under-19 and senior fixtures called off Southern’s under14s and under-16s had used the pitch. However Pines’ under-15s played on the main pitch the following day. Southern’s under-14s lost 4-1 with Eden McKeown scoring for the local side while the under16s won 2-0 with both goals coming from Alex Jones, her second from the penalty spot. In NPL2 news Langwarrin suffered a 2-0 away loss to Northcote last weekend with Anthony Rizk (8th minute) and Noah Mihailidis (62nd) scoring. It’s been a miserable month for the Lawton Park side having picked up just one point in June but that could change dramatically with news that Scottish striker John Baird, 33, arrived in Melbourne on Sunday night. Last season Baird was a playing assistant manager at Forfar Athletic and has also played for a host of Scottish clubs including Clyde, St Mirren, Dundee, Partick Thistle, Falkirk, Inverness Caley and Morton. He joins Langy for a 10-match stint after being recommended by Socceroo Scott McDonald. In State 1 news Mornington lost 3-2 away to Malvern City last weekend. Josh Hine scored in the 8th minute for Mornington and the visitors had to wait until the 87th minute for their second, an own goal from Malvern defender Daniel Bowman.

FRANKSTON FOOTBALL CLUB

Doveton which slumped to a third straight defeat on Saturday going down 2-0 to St Kilda Celts. In State 2 news Josh Calle has left Peninsula Strikers and signed for rival club Brandon Park. Calle previously played with Langwarrin, Frankston Pines, Box Hill United, Dingley Stars and Knox City. Strikers’ midfielder Grant Lane has been asked by the club to take a break from the game to deal with issues of pending fatherhood and work commitments. Midfielder Alex Whyte joined Strikers from Langwarrin last week and made his debut as a 77th minute substitute in the club’s 2-1 away win over Old Scotch on Saturday. Alpha Turay and Matt Harrington scored for Strikers. In State 4 news Harry McCartney reports that Seaford’s come-from-behind 2-1 home win over Dandenong South last weekend was marred by controversy over the sending-off of Seaford player-coach Matt Morris-Thomas late in the match. Lindurim Tairi put the visitors in front in the 8th minute but Mitch Lander levelled in the 19th minute when he beat the offside trap and rounded Dandenong keeper Gabriel Alfaro before slotting home from an acute angle. In the 65th minute, Taulant Mane was given a straight red for a late, high, sliding challenge on Matt Schwellinger as Dandenong was showing signs of frustration due to the Seaford pressure. The deadlock was broken in injury time when an Adam Martin cross was met at the back post by Dylan Waugh who headed home to make it 2-1. Matt Schwellinger dribbled past three opponents shortly after and was brought down 25 metres out directly in front. Morris-Thomas had come off the bench in the second half and lined up next to Jack Carter to strike the free-kick. As they staggered their runups Morris-Thomas struck the ball into the top corner but it was disallowed and referee Sam

Gerges gave the player-coach a second yellow card (apparently for time wasting) and sent him off. Gerges then reversed the free-kick and awarded it to Dandenong. The incident left most spectators bemused. Baxter drew 1-1 with Chelsea on Saturday but came away from Edithvale Common bitterly disappointed at not collecting three points. Daniel Vella put the home side in front after 10 minutes but Baxter hit back in the 22nd minute when Lawrence Komba went down the left then struck a superb cutback that presented the incoming Lewis Gibson with a tap-in. In State 5 news Somerville Eagles smashed Endeavour Hills Fire 7-0 at Tyabb Central Reserve on Saturday and sent a clear message to league leader Old Mentonians that the title race is alive and well. Old Mentonians’ away fixture against Aspendale Stingrays at Jack Grut Reserve last weekend was washed out leaving Somerville on equal points with the league leader who now has a game in hand. The Eagles’ huge win was more meritorious as playing co-coach and scoring legend Dave Greening missed the match due to illness along with strike partner and leading scorer Mark Pagliarulo who was recovering from a calf injury. But Saturday’s story revolved around 20-yearold Nathan Grimshaw who marked his first senior start with a four-goal haul. Goals to Daniel Hodge, Grimshaw, a Ben Meiklem penalty and a quality Callum Richardson finish had the home side in cruise control at half-time. Grimshaw added his second in the 55th minute after Meiklem had done well out wide then completed his hat-trick in the 74th minute with a clinical finish from a tight angle. Four minutes later after good work by Michael Clark it was 7-0 when Grimshaw turned his marker and fired home from the edge of the box to round out a remarkable afternoon. Rosebud won 2-0 at home to Bunyip District last weekend. Ben Gamble converted from the penalty spot in the first half and Blake Hicks scored in the second half with a well struck shot on a tight angle after a poorly judged defensive header following a Chris Parry cross. This weekend’s games: SATURDAY, 3pm: Langwarrin v North Geelong (Lawton Park), Mornington v Doveton (Dallas Brooks Park), Berwick City v Peninsula Strikers (Jack Thomas Reserve), Skye Utd v Brighton (Skye Recreation Reserve), Bayside Argonauts v Frankston Pines (Shipston Reserve), Dandenong South v Baxter (Tatterson Park), Aspendale Stingrays v Pakenham Utd (Jack Grut Reserve), Tullamarine v Rosebud (Melrose Drive Reserve), Knox Utd v Somerville Eagles (Park Ridge Reserve).
