Bay rays out of harm’s way Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au A CAMPAIGN to save stingrays in Port Phillip Bay has made authorities act to increase protection for the animals dubbed “the puppies of the sea” by environmentalists. The Labor state government announced last week that recreational fishing rules will be tightened from 7 November to “ensure these beautiful animals are treated with respect”.

An 800-strong Project Banjo action group, led by Safety Beach resident and scuba diver PT Hirschfield, has campaigned for months for state authorities to ban the catching of rays from piers and jetties along the bay (“Cruel end for ‘puppies’ of the sea”, The Times 17/4/17). The #RaysAwareness anti-cruelty campaign was triggered by the killing of a smooth ray on Rye pier on 2 April and the unfair demonisation of stingrays in the wake of the tragic death of

wildlife conservationist Steve Irwin from a freak stingray injury to the heart in 2006 off the coast of Queensland’s Port Douglas while diving at Batt Reef. Ms Hirschfield welcomed the decision by the Victorian Fisheries Authority to ban the catching of rays, skates and guitarfish, also known as “banjo sharks”, from within 400 metres of any man-made structure; ban the taking of any ray larger than 1.5 metres in width and lower the fishing

bag limit for all rays, skates and guitarfish from five to one a day. “The campaign was not about demonising fishermen in any way either — it’s all about working towards best practice,” she told The Times. “In actual fact, things like the exclusion zone of 400 metres around a manmade structure is a win-win for all water users because when those animals are free to be able to do the job of being ‘vacuum cleaners of the sea’ around man-made structures that creates a

healthier ecosystem to fish from, to dive in and swim in.” Ms Hirschfield acknowledged most anglers do not target rays since the sea creatures are not generally regarded as seafood in Australia but is it good to recognise the rays’ role in helping the underwater environment. “The regulations will be part of a broader campaign of education and enforcement that we hope will be a positive experience for everyone.” Continued Page 4

Deadline demand for basketball lease Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au COUNCILLOR disquiet about how much money is invested in representative basketball compared to community and junior basketball has emerged as a potential deal breaker that could sink the long-awaited redevelopment of the Frankston Basketball Stadium. Frankston councillors met on Wednesday 25 October for a special meeting behind closed doors to discuss giving the Frankston & District Basketball Association an ultimatum

to hand over “a full breakdown” of the association’s expenditure. The FDBA has provided council with audited financial accounts under the terms of its existing lease that expires in about nine years’ time. The association originally paid to build the stadium on council-owned land. Representative basketball teams are picked on the basis of players’ ability. The FBDA also fields two Frankston Blues teams — a men and women’s team — in the South East Australian Basketball League (SEABL).

Council’s special meeting was held in private for commercial-in-confidence reasons. It is understood that a 5-4 majority of councillors, led by Cr Colin Hampton, voted that a full breakdown of the association’s expenditure must be provided before council will release $4 million of ratepayers’ money towards a $12.7 million stage one expansion of the stadium in Seaford. The stage one upgrade will include more basketball courts bringing the total to ten, a new entry and reception area, new change rooms and an

upgraded car park. Frankston mayor Cr Brian Cunial issued a statement after the council special meeting confirming council has given the FDBA a deadline of Monday 14 November to sign a new lease required for the upgraded stadium. The deadline is the latest in a series of deadlines imposed by council. The mayor says council will walk away from the project — that includes $5.2 million of federal government and $2.5 million of state government funding — if the FDBA does not sign

a lease by 14 November. “There is a danger that the state or federal government, or both, may make a decision that would involve shelving the $12 million Frankston District Basketball Stadium expansion,” Cr Cunial said. “More than two years of negotiations with the Frankston District Basketball Association have placed state and federal funding in breach of guidelines as milestones have passed. “Furthermore, building costs have escalated due to the delay in signing a new lease.” Continued Page 6

Surf ’s up for new savers MAKE this summer the start of a lifetime lifesaving journey. That’s the call from Frankston Life Saving Club as it seeks new surf life savers. Club lifesaving director Ash Presser said the club wants to boost volunteer numbers to pitch in and help those who get into aquatic strife at Frankston beach. “All sorts of people are surf life savers. They come from all walks of life, in all shapes and sizes,” Mr Asher said.

“No matter if you are young at heart or simply young. There’s a role for everyone on and off the beach.” Frankston Life Saving Club runs beach patrols during the summer months, rescue jet ski patrols and lifesaving competition events. All-terrain vehicles, inflatable rescue boats and the jet skis are available thanks to state government funding. “Joining a lifesaving club is a re-

warding experience that can change your life and the lives of others,” Mr Presser said. Frankston Life Saving Club will host training for new surf life savers in late November and early December at its clubhouse at 1/1N Long Island Drive, Frankston Beach. See frankstonlsc.com.au for details and email membership@frankstonlsc.com.au or call 9783 9730.

A PLEDGE by the state government to run “more trains, more often” along the Frankston line has been welcomed by a regional advocacy group but there is also a call for the rail line to be extended to Langwarrin. Victorian Public Transport Minister Jacinta Allan visited Frankston late last month to officially open a drop-in information hub about the Skye Rd/Overton Rd level crossing removals. The Transport Minister said the separation of road from rail at 13 level crossings on the Frankston line will ease congestion for commuters. “This project is not only about removing yet another dangerous and congested level crossing, but will also allow us to run more trains, more often along the Frankston line,” Ms Allan said in a statement. Ms Allan also attended a Committee for Greater Frankston lunch at the Peninsula Aquatic Recreation Centre on the same day (Wednesday 25 October). The group hosts business lunches, open to all, with guest speakers with any money raised over and above lunch costs invested in the operations of the Committee for Greater Frankston. Committee for Greater Frankston president Fred Harrison, CEO of Ritchies Supermarkets, welcomed the Labor state government’s investment of $63 million into a redevelopment of Frankston train station and its surrounds but urged Ms Allan to

consider reopening a station at Langwarrin “to connect Frankston people with the jobs they deserve”. “The population of the greater Frankston region is predicted to increase by 50 per cent over the next 30 years. But job growth lags well behind. Our area has fewer than 28 local jobs per 100 residents,” Mr Harrison said at the lunch. “We need to bring more jobs into our economy, and we need to better connect our workers with jobs outside our area. Bus access to Frankston station is woeful. If you’re serious about getting people out of their cars and onto the Frankston train line, more commuter parking will be needed. “The electrification of the train line to Langwarrin will provide ample opportunities for car parking at Langwarrin. In addition, it will better connect young professionals moving to Karingal and other fast-growing suburbs in our region with jobs right up the train line.” Ms Allan said at the lunch that the Labor state government is focused on prioritising a $2 billion upgrade of the Frankston line at this stage. The level crossings information hub at the corner of Skye Rd and Farrell St opened by the Transport Minister last month was built by young people “facing barriers to education or employment” as part of a TRY Build social enterprise project helping the unemployed learn new skills.

It’s a shame about rays: A diver with five slaughtered rays, right (Picture: PT Hirschfield), while another ray, above (Picture: Gary Bell), vacuums the seabed.

Rays in bay protected Continued from Page 1 Beachgoers should not fear stingrays, Ms Hirschfield said. “I think most people who visit the people who visit the beaches already know all beautiful, how curious and how docile those animals are. “It’s really more on social media where you sometimes see people who don’t have the opportunity to encounter how great rays are who have that residual fear. “That fear has come from the passing of Steve Irwin. It kind of put rays in the same light as Steven Spielberg’s Jaws — one event has col-

oured the true perspective.” Ms Hirschfield said most bay residents and visitors love rays and they are a tourism drawcard. Victorian Agriculture Minister Jaala Pulford praised the Project Banjo action group’s campaign to save rays when announcing the VFA decision on 1 November. “We recognise the need to inform beginners and expert anglers alike about the new rules, which is why a dedicated education and enforcement effort will be delivered through spring and summer.” Ms Pulford said VFA officers will

launch Operation Liberty to encourage responsible fishing by anglers. Additional signage will be installed on piers around Port Phillip, Western Port and along Victoria’s coast to make fishers aware of the new rules prohibiting the catching of rays from within 400 metres of any man-made structure. The new regulations are the result of about 1200 submissions to the VFA during a public consultation process. The vast majority of submissions supported greater protection for rays, skates and guitarfish.

‘Battle of Young St’ rages on Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au TRAFFIC is flowing along Young St again, although some bus services are not yet running through the street, amid a bitter war of words over businesses impacted by the $13 million redevelopment of the central Frankston street. Frankston Labor MP Paul Edbrooke has called on federal Dunkley Liberal MP Chris Crewther to resign over claims by the Dunkley MP that 26 businesses in the Young St area have closed due to delays in the redevelopment. The works by contractor Seymour Whyte were slated to be finished in May but complications from the need to move underground electrical cabling and the need to handle asbestos in Telstra pits with care saw the project end date delayed until October. When asked, the mayor Cr Brian Cunial confirmed in a statement late last week that Frankston Council has received two applications from businesses for a one-off payment of $750 under a council trader’s assistance package offered despite the Young St upgrades being a state government project. “One application has been reviewed and approved by the assessment panel,” Cr Cunial said. “The other recent application will be reviewed to determine eligibility.” Mr Crewther and Frankston deputy mayor Steve Toms, a Labor Party member, have been sharing stories online from traders about business strife in the Young St precinct.

Mr Edbrooke disputes the claim that 26 businesses have closed due to the Young St works. “As the member for Frankston, I receive my information from accurate sources like Frankston City Council’s economic development department, The Frankston Business Network and management at Bayside Shopping Centre,” Mr Edbrooke said. “The member for Dunkley has made these unsubstantiated claims for months against all advice from business experts, is now effectively inferring that these professionals are liars and can’t find the evidence … I call on the federal member to resign immediately.” Frankston Council intervened in the dispute “to put the facts on the table” by issuing a statement from the mayor on 27 October.

The mayor Cr Brian Cunial said: “As mayor, I’d like to put the facts on the table about recent statements claiming that 26 businesses have closed due to the Young St improvement project works. “These comments do not accurately reflect the situation in Frankston City. “Since January, a total of 14 businesses located in the area affected by the works have closed. “Council officers spoke to these business operators to determine the reason for their closure, and four have connected their closure to the Young St works. “Since January, there have also been a total of five businesses which have relocated within Frankston, three of which have moved into Young St.” The mayor said council analysis shows “the current level of business closures in the area affected by the works is consist-

ent with the previous two years”. Council said 10 businesses in the Young St area closed in 2016 and 11 shut down in 2015 before any street works began. The mayor advised council defined “the area affected by the works” as Young St, Beach St, Ross Smith Avenue East, Balmoral St, Station St and Wells St. Cr Toms questioned the council figures about business closures when contacted by The Times. “I’m very disappointed that the mayor has chosen to release this statement. In my view, and the data that I have, it is factually incorrect and grossly misinformed,” the deputy mayor. “I would have expected the mayor to have chatted to one of the traders’ advocates or me or to Chris Crewther before he would release such a statement.” Mr Crewther said he is “unsure of the methodology used” by council to determine how many businesses in the area had closed as a result of the Young St works delay. He said he believes council’s “figures to be inaccurate on whatever methodology was used”. He said eight businesses featuring “real people, with real stories” featured on the Facebook page promoted by the Dunkley MP and the deputy mayor. “Their stories demonstrate those [council] previous figures to be inaccurate on whatever methodology was used,” Mr Crewther said. “Evidence from traders themselves indicate that many have closed in the Young St Precinct due to the works, not to mention those affected but still open.

Traders will be releasing more of their own personal stories over coming days and weeks.” Mr Crewther welcomed the upgrade of Young St but he called on Mr Edbrooke to “fight for relief and compensation on traders’ behalf”. “While I am surprised by the unstatesmanlike and negative statement from Mr Edbrooke that I should resign as a consequence of my advocacy for affected and closed traders, at their request, I remain very willing to work with Mr Edbrooke on getting a positive solution for affected traders, if he is willing to work with me to do so.” Cr Cunial said council supports the Young St rejuvenation as part of the state government $63 million revamp of Frankston train station and its surrounds. “These works not only aim to improve pedestrian access and safety in the area, they are designed to improve the vibrancy of Frankston and cement the city’s reputation as a destination for shoppers, visitors and residents alike,” he said. VicRoads confirmed on Friday (3 November) that temporary bus stops are in place along Young St while work is finished on new bus bays. “Recent bus trials have been completed and 10 of 20 services are now using the new interchange on Young Street, including the popular SmartBus services,” VicRoads metropolitan projects director Brendan Pauwels said. Ten bus services are using temporary stops south of Young St while VicRoads works with Public Transport Victoria to move all bus services back to the Young St interchange.

Stadium lease stoush heads into overtime Continued from Page 3 Devco Project & Construction Management, the builder hired to expand the stadium, now wants at least an extra $200,000 due to project delays. Council and the FBDA are negotiating a 50-50 split on paying the $200,000 bill. Cr Cunial said: “Council has written to the FDBA imploring them to agree to the draft lease presented to them on 16 October 2017 and provide increased details of their expenditure by 14 November 2017, or council will be forced to withdraw from the project at the following council meeting.” The mayor said council “is committed to delivering improved community basketball facilities and is eager to commence works”. FBDA president Gary Emery accused council of being “alarmist” in stating federal and state funding for the stadium upgrade is at risk. “Statements the basketball stadium funding hangs in the balance is contrary to the advice the FDBA has received from government representatives,” Mr Emery said. “It would appear by using this type of language, council have adopted an alarmist approach which is counterproductive and only acts as bulldozing what the FDBA felt was an amicable process since agreement was reached in late June.” The FBDA says changes were made to a proposed lease agreement negotiated at a meeting mediated by former Liberal MP for Dunkley Bruce Billson in June.

“The FDBA believed it had a productive meeting with council officers last week [before the councillors’ meeting] and from this council would be formalising an agreement reflecting terms negotiated in late June by the former federal member for Dunkley Bruce Billson,” Mr Emery said. “The FDBA has previously publicly stated it is comfortable with the ‘Billson’ terms which was again conveyed recently to council officers who did not indicate at the time this was unreasonable or that the goal posts had shifted.” Mr Emery said: “Sport and Recreation Victoria representatives recently confirmed with council officers that audited financials, which the FDBA provide council as part of its current lease terms, is an appropriate level of financial disclosure in this instance. “The FDBA believed that this issue was resolved upon council receiving this advice. “This council managed project has been delayed for various reasons with no resolution in sight and demonstrates the precarious position council find themselves in that any future major projects undertaken by council, including the planned $13 million regional tennis centre, which is part of relocating Frankston Tennis Club, will require significant state government investment. “This process of successfully lobbying for future funds by community groups will be significantly undermined if council continue to mismanage grants totally in the multimillion dollars destined to benefit ratepayers.”

Driving to learning success THE road to getting a driver’s licence can be paved with a few speed bumps but the L2P program gives young people the chance to clock up the 120 hours of driving under supervision learner drivers need to sit the P-plate test. The Frankston Council supported driving program in partnership with the Lions Club of Frankston is seeking more adult volunteer driver supervisors to help families struggling to provide the needed 120 hours of driving time for youngsters. The L2P program is being expanded thanks to the donation of a second car by the Brotherhood of St Laurence. Demand is high for the program. Thirty-five young drivers are currently working towards P-plates and 50 are on a waiting list.

“It took a while to get into the program, but it was worth the wait,” learner driver John Flandez, 18, said. “I’m thrilled to have my licence and now have my own car that will help me get to university next year.” Lions Club of Frankston president Maurice Blackburn said the club has a strong focus on supporting the young in the community. “L2P gives people a leg up and an opportunity they may not otherwise get and we’re proud to be supporting the program.” The L2P program began in 2010 and 84 mentor volunteers have helped 211 learners clock up 11,400 hours of driving time to obtain a probationary driver’s licence. Volunteer driving mentor John Davidson urged others to step up and

get involved in helping young people learn how to drive responsibly on the roads. “John has been a delight to mentor towards his recent success in obtaining his probationary licence. If he had any questions, he asked. “He didn’t race off and do his own thing and I congratulate him on his dedication throughout the program.” See frankston.vic.gov.au/L2P or call 9768 1313 to volunteer as a mentor driver or to offer financial support to give young drivers the right start on the road. Frankston Council coordinates the L2P program, funded by the TAC and managed by VicRoads, with the backing of sponsors and supporters including the Lions Club of Frankston and the Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Ringing the bell at Point Leo Flat bottom, sharp or blunt nose, swallow tail with flyers and rounded rails near the shoulders, and lots of rocker. Descriptions can be misleading, but all those words are part of the vernacular of surfers when describing a surfboard. They are words that will be freely used among the crowds expected at the Vintage Surf Day at Point Leo on Sunday 12 November. It is the third vintage day at Point Leo and sees the display of boards of all shapes, sizes and ages. And every board has a story. Bob Smith, honorary historian at the Torquay Surfworld Museum and Surfing Victoria, is bringing rare and valuable memorabilia from the annual Bells Beach surfing contest, including the official contest trophy and the bell won by 1970s Australian surfer, the late Michael Peterson. Stalls on the foreshore will include old surfboards and other devices used to catch waves. There will be Kombis and woodies (surf cars) and food stalls. Peter White, formerly of Seaford but now operating Classic Malibu, at Noosa, is bringing a range of modern boards down from Queensland and will be able to compare the evolution of designs over the years. One of the boards is a copy of a five-stringer George Rice mal that he used to make under licence in the

Smith, who turned 70 this year, has surfed since 1964 and still competes regularly on longboards. He’s recognised as a standout talent at west coast breaks, particularly Point Impossible. He has won 23 Victorian titles and two Australian Masters Games titles, as well as two Surfing Australia Hall of Fame awards and multiple titles for the Torquay Boardriders and

Surfcoast Longboarders. He was awarded life membership to Surfing Victoria in 2014. “Bob is a mine of information about the surfing history of Victoria, including the Mornington Peninsula and will be happy to talk history when he’s over here,” Vintage day organiser Rod Jones said.

Racist abuse before Rifle found in ute ute which evaded police gun threat at servo AonSTOLEN Peninsula Link was later seen in

Unwelcome visitor

A FRANKSTON man who allegedly shouted racist abuse at a motorist at a service station lifted his shirt to reveal a handgun tucked into his pants, 2.10am, Saturday 21 October. Acting Detective Sergeant Alistair Boyd, of Frankston CIU, said the man approached a 28-year-old Sudanese man after buying petrol at the 7-Eleven on Frankston-Cranbourne Rd, corner of Karingal Drive. Detective Boyd said the man, 44, became aggressive towards the Sudanese man and allegedly shouted: “This is my country so get in your car and f*** off.” The victim got out of his car to approach the man who lifted his shirt and pointed to a gun tucked into his pants before allegedly saying: “Get in your car before I blow your head off.” Detective Boyd said the man with the handgun had a swastika tattooed on his chest. After the incident, the swastika-tattooed man walked to a car which was driven away by another person, and the victim of the racist abuse called Frankston police. They executed a search warrant and arrested a man on Monday 30 October. He was charged with making threats to kill, possessing a handgun and extendable baton and unlawful assault and was remanded in custody. A man appeared at Frankston Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday (31 October) and was remanded to reappear on Monday 6 November.

a Seaford service station with a rifle in the tray, early morning Tuesday 31 October. Acting Senior Sergeant Glenn Michie, of Frankston police, said police spotted the yellow Ford ute with false number plates at 12.05am. They ordered the driver to pull over but he sped away and the chase was abandoned. At 3.10am the ute was seen at the service station on the corner of Frankston-Dandenong Rd and Klauer St but, as police approached, the man jumped out and ran off. They searched the car and found a .22 rifle in the back. The man was aged 20-30.

Tree set alight

A HOME-MADE ‘Molotov cocktail’ was thrown into a tree on a Langwarrin street setting the tree alight, 11pm, Monday 30 October. Police said the fire caught hold halfway up the trunk, prompting residents to call Langwarrin CFA for assistance in putting it out.

Wind fans flames

STRONG northerlies fanned flames at two spot fires in landscaped areas near the BP service stations on Peninsula Link, Baxter, last week. CFA crews extinguished a small blaze at 1.50pm, but were recalled an hour later when fanned embers reignited a second fire nearby. No major damage was reported.

A FRANKSTON North man who went outside for a cigarette allegedly saw a woman rifling through items in his garage, 7.50am, Saturday 28 October. After being challenged the woman walked down the driveway and along Ribbon Court towards Monterey Boulevard with the man following. She was arrested in Lambert St. Police later found goods allegedly stolen from the man’s house and garage packed into his car. The woman, 41, of no fixed address, was charged with burglary and theft and intending to steal the man’s car. She faced Melbourne Magistrates’ Court last week and was further remanded for a court date to be fixed.

Servo ‘ram raid’

TWO men were arrested after allegedly attempting a ram raid on a Dromana service station early Friday morning. Somerville Highway Patrol police spotted the pair after a Ford sedan was reversed through the doors of the Pt Nepean Road servo about 1am. A 24-year-old and a 20-year-old, both of Seaford, were arrested inside the 7-Eleven store. An attendant was not injured. The men were charged with armed robbery. They faced Melbourne Magistrates’ Court Friday morning and were remanded to reappear at the same court at a later date.

Mobility scooter man killed A MAN riding a mobility scooter died after being struck by a car in Langwarrin, Wednesday night (1 November). Emergency services were called to McClelland Drive after the incident which involved a Toyota about 9.05pm. The 47-year-old Langwarrin man died at the scene. A 62-year-old Sandhurst man driving the car stopped to help. Sergeant Mark Sims, of Somerville Highway Patrol, said the deceased man was a resident of the nearby Log Cabin Park. He was crossing the road near Storage King in a dark, unlit area and was not wearing reflective clothing or carrying a light. “The driver of the Toyota only saw him at the last second and is devastated,” he said. “There is no evidence of alcohol, drugs or speeding.” After the fatality and following concerns from nearby residents, Frankston Council will investigate the site and surrounds to “determine if there are any ac-

tions that might be required” to make it safer. “This is a terrible and unfortunate incident that has occurred within our local community,” Council CEO Dennis Hovenden said. “Our thoughts are with the pedestrian, his family and friends during this difficult time. “It appears the pedestrian was crossing at a non-designated crossing point. To the best of our knowledge, we have not received any complaints or requests regarding a pedestrian crossing; nor does there appear to be any recorded crash statistics for the site.” Sergeant Sims said police investigating the collision had contacted Frankston Council to alert them to the area’s dangers. Anyone who saw the incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report at crimestoppersvic.com.au online.

Ansett land sale raises concerns Stephen Taylor steve@baysidenews.com.au

Sale ‘poses new threat to wedge’

Truly Stunning Landmark Waterfront Property

Mornington Peninsula Landholding

THE sale of the final parcel of land held by the trustees of the late Sir Reginald Ansett estate in Mt Eliza next month is being described by the selling agents as having potential for “redevelopment and a range of uses”. That potential includes commercial uses, leisure, hospitality, healthcare, education and a clifftop dwelling, the brochure says. While the future development of the 90 Kunyung Rd site is subject to approvals, any subdivision or overuse of the 22.3-hectare site next to the Urban Growth Boundary will generate angst among those determined to preserve its Green Wedge zoning. Ernst and Young, acting for Equity Trustees which oversees the RM Ansett Trust, has organised an expressions-of-interest campaign closing on 13 December for the sale of the property which is expected to reap about $35 million. The company says the sale of the predominantly rural land would allow the proceeds to be reinvested into income-producing assets earning the trustees a higher return for their charitable works. The parcel of land is held in four separate titles. The agents say one option is for the buyer of the entire block to realign the boundaries so that the existing large parcel and three separate 500 square metre blocks could be more equitably divided into four blocks of fiveand-a-half hectares each. This would leave the Green Wedge intact, they say.

The Ansett Estate Mount Eliza

90 Kunyung Road, Mount Eliza, Victoria Expressions of Interest Close Wednesday 13 December 2017

Let’s go to work: Sir Reginald Ansett at his Mt Eliza property now for sale, above.

Equity Trustees managing director Mick O’Brien said: “Through the sale process we plan to release the value in the land and invest it back into the community. It is our responsibility as trustee to act according to Sir Reginald’s philanthropic intent, and to deliver the best outcome for his trust.” The block has unobstructed Port Phillip Bay views, 100 metres of beach frontage and backs onto Kunyung Rd and Albatross Avenue at the rear. The 22.3-hectare block is a separate tranche to the 11.7-hectare Gunyong Valley estate bought from the estate of the late Mrs Joan Ansett by retirement village owner Chas Jacobsen for $14.5 million in 2006. Mornington Peninsula Shire has quashed any potential residential redevelopment plans. The shire’s planning services execu-

tive manager David Bergin said the site could be used for a range of different uses, subject to planning permit approval, including a school, place of worship, single dwelling, caravan park, plant nursery or “a range of other similar uses”. “You could use the land for agriculture without a planning permit and a few other land uses, subject to meeting strict conditions,” he said. Mt Eliza Association for Environmental Care president Des Berry confirmed the land could not be subdivided for residential development. “It is in the Green Wedge and any prospective buyers should carefully check the legal ramifications of any possible subdivision,” he said. “We are an environment group and our aim is to protect the area’s significant native vegetation, especially along

the foreshore.” Mr Berry said his group doubted the land’s existing boundaries could be “realigned” as stated in the Ernst and Young brochure. “We would fight any redevelopment,” he said. Across Kunyung Rd, Ryman Health Care last year paid close to $40 million for the 8.9-hectare Moondah Estate. That waterfront property with a 42-room mansion built in 1888 was bought from the University of Melbourne, which still has six months left on a lease to run it as a business school. A covenant restricts the Moondah Estate’s use to aged care, education, religious or primary production. It has a historic gatehouse, servants’ quarters, conference, training, meeting and office spaces and four dining areas.

MORNINGTON MP David Morris said the proposed sale of the Ansett land meant the Mt Eliza Green Wedge was “once again under threat”. “It is difficult to see how some of the potential uses proposed for the site could be undertaken without either a change to the Urban Growth Boundary, or a substantial redrafting of the Planning Statement and the Green Wedge Zone, or both,” he said. “I wish to place on record my total opposition, and that of the state opposition, to any change in the long-standing urban boundary south of Mt Eliza. “The boundary has been in place for decades, and it has been understood by successive generations of peninsula residents that the location is permanent. “I will not support movement of the boundary or a weakening of the Green Wedge Zone, under any circumstances.” Mr Morris said the zoning was intended, among other things, to “protect the character of open rural and scenic non-urban landscapes”. “While some of the potential uses identified may be permitted under the planning scheme, they are usually required to be undertaken with agriculture or as part of a vineyard, not as a standalone use,” he said. “The Mornington Peninsula Localised Planning Statement, introduced by the Napthine government in 2014, and still state policy, includes an objective intended to protect the peninsula’s landscape and cultural values.”

Views, culinary delights with a sculptured touch PT LEO Estate with its enormous cellar door, 110-seat restaurant and “Australia’s foremost sculpture park” opened last week. Set on 134 hectares it has sweeping views over Western Port Bay. The sculpture park features a privately owned collection of 50 large-scale contemporary local and international works which will “continue to grow and evolve over coming years”. Curator Geoffrey Edwards is former director of Geelong Gallery and former Senior Curator of International and Australian Sculpture at the National Gallery of Victoria. An exciting addition will be Jaume Plensa’s internationally regarded Laura which is currently on the final leg of its journey from Spain. Other major works are by prominent international figures, including Tony Cragg, George Rickey and Zadok Ben-David and Australian pioneers of modernism Inge King and Lenton Parr. Visitors to the sculpture park will guided by an app that can be downloaded on site. Designed by prominent Melbourne architectural and interior design firm Jolson, the semi-circular cellar door and restaurant is set on the highest point of the property with fine views and abundant natural light. Principal architect Stephen Jolson nominates the building’s entry as one of its standout features: its form being an abstract interpretation of wine pouring from a bottle.

Visitors entering the sheltered forecourt come across sculptor King’s five-metre steel Grand Arch as well as a sculptured bottle tree. The estate’s culinary director Phil Wood says he will focus on simple, flavoursome, seasonal and regional food in the 110-seat Pt Leo Estate Restaurant. It has a modern bistro buzz with a central wood-fired oven that lends itself to a menu designed for friends and family to share. Features dishes are Dutch carrot soufflé, brown butter and wild scampi roe; wood-roasted flathead with macadamia and seaweed, and duck breast glazed in peninsula honey with lavender, celeriac and turnips. The wine list features up to 100 Victorian labels from the Mornington Peninsula alongside benchmark and emerging wines from across the state. The adjacent cellar door offers tastings of Pt Leo Estate’s cool-climate wine portfolio as well as selected back-vintages. The range aims to express region and variety, with pinot noir, chardonnay, shiraz and pinot gris said to be the stand-outs. The cellar door offerings can also be enjoyed on the restaurant terrace as well as cocktails (named after the sculptures), local craft beers and a smaller menu of snacks and finger food. Pt Leo Estate is the long-held vision of the Gandel family. “The estate is a celebration of life’s greatest pleasure – food, wine and art – and has the people of Victoria and Australia at its heart,” John Gandel said.


Drones focus of marine safety push

‘Over the rainbow’ about award PENINSULA Health has got a tick of approval for its role in improving health outcomes for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) community. The healthcare provider — manager of Frankston Hospital, Rosebud Hospital, The Mornington Centre and Golf Links Road Rehabilitation Centre — won the ‘Supporting LGBTI health’ category at the Victorian Public Healthcare Awards. “Being the first full public health

service in Australia to achieve the Rainbow Tick is a significant achievement,” Peninsula Health acting CEO David Anderson said. “I thank all our staff who put so much effort into this project which will dramatically improve the health and wellbeing of our LGBTI community.” Peninsula Health’s Rainbow Tick accreditation project manager Rebecca Thompson said changes made at hospitals and healthcare

centres means everyone is treated equally and individually. “The Rainbow Tick accreditation is not about changing individual beliefs or personal values, it is ensuring that everybody has equity in their healthcare and place of work,” she said. “It’s about ensuring the services we provide at Peninsula Health are delivered in ways that are non-discriminatory, GLBTI inclusive and welcoming for everybody.”

DRONES will be the focus of a state government push to protect marine life in Port Phillip Bay. This comes as Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning officers begin marine mammal patrols to make sure members of the public keep their distance – especially those flying drones. “We’re increasingly noticing more drones appearing on populated beaches,” DELWP wildlife officer Suriya Vij said. “While drones don’t have large motors, many marine mammals are sensitive to noise, and buzzing from their motors can distress them. “There’s also the potential for amateur operators to unintentionally strike the animals. “Though it may be tempting to fly a drone close to these animals for a photo, our message is simple – don’t.” The officers are asking beach goers to behave responsibly so animals aren’t harmed or stressed in their natural environment. Aircraft, including drones, are not allowed to fly within 500 vertical metres or within a 500 metre radius of whales under the Wildlife Marine Mammals Regulations 2009. But drones are becoming a problem. “With the increasing accessibility and use of small and large drones, we’re seeing more of these being flown over marine mammals,” Australian Marine Mammal Foundation director and researcher Dr Kate Charlton-Rob said. The issue has become “so prevalent” that the foundation plans to investigate the extent drones are

impacting on dolphins in Port Phillip Bay and in the Gippsland Lakes. “Breaches of regulations caused by drones or boats can cause undue stress to these animals [affecting] behaviours like feeding, resting, mother-calf bonding and mating,” Dr Charlton-Rob said. Boats must stay 100 metres from dolphins, except if approached. Beach goers can allow the dolphins to approach them, but must leave them alone otherwise. Jet skis must stay 300 metres away from dolphins, and, when walking or swimming, members of the public must stay 30 metres from a seal on land, and five metres from seals on structures such as Chinaman’s Hat in the bay. See delwp.vic.gov.au or call 136 186. Call the Whale and Dolphin Emergency Hotline 1300 136 017 to report a whale or dolphin stranded, entangled or struck by a vessel.

Breakfast champions jobs for autistic FORMER Western Bulldogs vice president Susan Alberti was guest speaker at a Frankston breakfast function at Functions By The Bay last Tuesday (31 October) launching a support program for young people living with autism in Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula. Ms Alberti, a businesswoman and philanthropist, told the assembled breakfasters about “growing up tough” and building up a successful industrial and commercial building and development company. She spoke about tragic personal circumstances including the death of her daughter from Type 1 diabetes

and how it inspired her voluntary work to support medical research. The LabPRO program launched at the breakfast by Autism Helper will be trialed across Frankston and the peninsula over 12 months, with the support of Frankston Council, to give young people aged 17-25 the chance to work in IT and computer clubs and prepare to be “work ready” by learning about the “hidden rules” of workplaces. Austism Helper is an initiative of former VFL Collingwood and Carlton football Ron O’Dwyer. Proudly Frankston president Alan Wickes, a former Magpies teammate

of O’Dwyer, hosted the breakfast event at Frankston Football Club’s function room. “Susan is an inspiration to so many people and especially young women in sport,” Mr Wickes said. “Several of our most promising local women footballers were thrilled to meet Susan and express their thanks for her groundbreaking work in helping to create the AFL Women’s League.” Individuals and organisations interested in supporting or learning more about LabPRO can contact The Lab Network at LabPRO@thelab.org.au by email.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Illegal log carting results in fine Compiled by Brodie Cowburn THE following cases were disposed of at the Frankston Court of Petty Sessions on Monday last, before Mr Cohen, P.M, and Messrs Williams, Oates, Grant and Mc Lean. McGrath was charged with having neglected to send his child to school the required number of days and was fined 2s. M. Parker for a similar offence was fined 5s. A. E. Ryan was fined 4s in each case for non-vaccination of two children. John Knight was charged by John. E. Jones (shire secretary) with carting pine logs over roads in the centre Riding on dates within the time during which pine log carting was prohibited by the Shire. The defendant pleaded guilty to three charges and was fined 23s 6d on the first two and 29s for the third. A number of persons were fined in sums varying from 1s to 5s for omitting to have their names placed on the electors’ roll. *** NEWS has been received that Captain Claude P. Russell, of the Indian Frontier Mounted Police, has been awarded the Victoria Cross for conspicuous bravery in France. Captain Russell, who had at the outbreak of the present war already gained four medals for service in previous campaigns in India and South Africa, volunteered for service in France when war was declared.

He is now in hospital, severely wounded. *** MR S. S. Gault will hold a special horse sale at his Somerville yard on Monday next when a good yard of all description of horses will be yarded. *** ON Thursday next the elections for representatives in the State Parliament will take place throughout Victoria. In the Mornington electorate Mr Downward (the old member) is opposed by Mr R. M. Anderson, the selected Liberal candidate. The latter gentleman has spoken at the principal places throughout the electorate, and created a very favorable impression. It is generally thought that he will get good support on polling day. *** A RUG, made and presented to the Red Cross Society by Mrs Hague, is or view in the window of Mr Guumes. This beautiful piece of work, whichtook six months to make, is to be raffled shortly. *** MR and Mrs McSweeney and family desire to express their heartfelt thanks to their many friends of Frankston for kindness shown to them while their son Bert was so very ill, especially to Dr Maxwell for his unremitting care and attention.

*** MR Downward addressed the electors in the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall on Friday night. The Candidate said this was the most important election ever held in Victoria. Owing to its financial position the State was not far from financial blizzard. This State was not alone in the ordeal. All the States had a difficult row owing to the outcome of federation. The States were now indebted to the Federal Government for £20,000,000, and had agreed to pay this back at the end of the present year. It was absolutely impossible to do so. *** THERE was a good attendance at the Red Cross social at Tyabb last Saturday night and a very nice evening was spent. Mr Phillip Mair as M.C. kept the dances going and splendid music was supplied for same by Messrs Gibson Chalwell and Mr Baker junr of Somerville who took a turn at the piano when not dancing and played excellent music (he can come again if he likes.) *** ON November 30th the Miniature Picture Campaign in aid of St. Vincents Hospital, Melbourne will cease. This Campaign was inaugurated in order to raise £25,000 which is urgently needed by the hospital. It is an appeal for help for those who cannot help themselves. Although this campaign has been

in progress for some months, some people are still in doubt as to what it exactly means. *** A BULLETIN on the Evaporation of Apples has just been issued by the Department of Agriculture. It consists mainly of portion of a pamphlet issued by the State College of Washington Agricultural Experimental Station and a reprint from the Journal of Agriculture of a short article on Apple Drying by Mr Farrell one of the Orchard Supervisors of the Department of Agriculture. In view of the heavy apple crop expected next season and as very little of it can be exported this bulletin will no doubt be of practical use to Orchardists *** HELEN Mathers wonderful story “Comin’ thro’ the Rye” of self renunciation will be screened at Frankston, Wednesday, Nov 14th. It attracted the largest audience in Melbourne ever drawn to a picture house, and has been shown through out the suburbs with great success. *** THE secretary of the Wattle Club acknowledges with thanks, a donation of £1 1s from Mrs Manu, “Harbury”Frankston. *** THIS afternoon the ceremony of unveiling a Roll of Honor will take place at the Mount Eliza State School. Sir John Madden will perform the ceremony.

A cordial invitation is given to the residents to be present by the chairman (Mr Jas Grice). The function being commenced at 3 oclock. *** READERS are reminded of the Novety night which is to take place on Friday, November 9th, in the Hall, to raise funds to provide Xmas Cheer for the boys at Langwarrin Camp. A very bright evening’s entertainment has been arranged and it is expected that everybody will come along and participate. Among numerous other attractions the orchestra from Langwarrin will be in attendance. *** LETTER TO THE EDITOR: In 1910, 154,031 were employed in farming in 1916 their number had decreased to 147,655 whilst the population of Melbourne has increased in 11 years by 178,514. What do our time serving and place hunting politicians care about these things? Not a jot. They proceed merrily with their mad extravagance. The greatest benevolent asylum in the country is the State Parliament House, where mediocrites, and persons who have out lived their usefulness practise. F. M. LINLEY, Mornington. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 10 November 1917

Stroke Rehabilitation inspires Stroke4Stroke JEREMY Naik, a radiographer at the time, was attending a cardiac conference in San Francisco in October 2015. That is when he suffered his first stroke. This is his story: I suffered my first stroke while attending a conference overseas. This happened in my sleep and when my wife woke me in the morning, I was unable to speak and did not recognize my family. I spent four days in hospital and recovered quickly. I was fit to fly back home two weeks later.When we arrived back home I felt really good and no one could believe that I had suffered a stroke Three weeks later I began slurring my speech and making no sense at all. It was then discovered that I had suffered a second stroke. This time it was much worse. I could not put two words together. It was extremely hard time for me and for my family. I was initially admitted to Peninsula Private hospital and then transferred to St John of God Frankston Rehabilitation Hospital (SJGFRH) for intense rehabilitation therapy. This is where I met my speech therapists, Georgia and Jenny. I would see them every day for two weeks. They were extremely kind and patient with me as I found it very frustrating at times. I knew what I wanted to say but the words would just not come out. My background as a radiographer enabled me to understand what they wanted to achieve with me but I could not necessarily understand

what was going on for me. This was a very emotional time for me. There were times when my wife and I would just sit and cry. Physically I have no deficits but the stroke affected my speech and my memory. I am still unable to read. Once discharged from hospital I was then an outpatient. I saw Georgia twice a week. She always gave me homework. I told her “it was harder than going to school or work”. SJGFRH Rehabilitation Physician, Dr Abbott, decided I could no longer return to work and the physiotherapist encouraged me to return to playing golf or to go to the gym. Returning to golf gave me a purpose. A purpose to get up and interact with the other golfers. As a keen golfer, I wanted to combine my personal experience with golf to help other stroke survivors. I want to encourage other stroke survivors and their families to accept their challenges and to keep moving forward. Like golf, my faith was also my saving grace. In my early years, I never went to church. I always joked that I did not go to such “rough places”. Five years ago, I started attending mass with my wife every Sunday this was the beginning of my faith journey. We never questioned “why us” as we knew that this was God’s plan, not just for me but for our family as well. God saw a way to bring my faith and life journeys together. And so, Stroke4Stroke was born - Stroke4Stroke is a nonprofit

Kangas show they’re real deal PROVINCIAL

By IT Gully LANGWARRIN has announced itself as a true contender for the MPCA Provincial title after beating Peninsula Old Boys on Saturday. Defending 9/216 going into the second day of the clash at Lloyd Park, the Kangas celebrated early when the dangerous Dylan O’Malley was the first man to go without a run being scored by the Old Boys. Old Boys’ skipper Wade Pelzer and Glen Prendergast dug-in and got the score past 50 before things started to

turn pair-shaped for the ladder leaders. Matt Prosser, who has been in superb form with the bat but not so much with the ball this season for the Kangas, regained his leg-spin mojo and took ownership of the Old Boys’ batting line-up, snatching 5/36 from 15.1 overs. The Old Boys went from being 1/56 to 6/79. Prosser was well supported by Matt Campbell, who helped himself to 2/22 while Langy skipper Jake Prosser picked-up 2/3 from eight overs. Mornington cruised past Pearce-

dale, winning by more than 130 runs. Pearcedale resumed on Saturday at 0/12, however, had a lot of work to do to get to the 4/298 that Mornington posted on day one of the match. Brad Trotter (73) and Chris Dew (25) got the Panthers away to a reasonable start and there was no momentum lost when Will Kennedy (34) came to the crease at three. The Dales cruised past 100 with just one wicket lost. However, the Dogs were able to regain the ascendancy, snaring 3/2 to have the Panthers in a sport of trouble at 4/115.

It was pretty much all over at that point, although they did scramble to 167. Michael Heib was superb with five wickets for the Doggies while Matt Foon started the ball rolling with three early wickets. Baxter pulled-off a sensational win against Sorrento, successfully defending its ordinary total of 133. The Sharks were well and truly in the box seat at the beginning of the second day, resuming at 1/47, less than 90 runs to get with 80 overs and nine wickets in hand. Enter Baxter boom recruit Yohan

Maddege, who tore through the Sorrento batting line-up and finished with match-winning figures of 6/61 from 30 overs. Roommate Chamika Sattambi snared 3/19 from 10 overs. Whilst Maddege did the damage at the top of the order, Sattambi cleanedup the tale, rolling Sorrento for 127. Mt Eliza had little trouble running down Crib Point, who had made just 123. Resuming at 1/8, Mt Eliza cruised to 4/125 from 66 overs before the game as called. Keith Beggs top scored for the Mounties with an unbeaten 33 while Justin Grant was also unbeaten on 28.

Main Ridge fall over PENINSULA

By IT Gully MAIN Ridge was completely embarrassed in its MPCA Peninsula match on Saturday, smashed by Pines by more than 150 runs. Cruising at the top of the table after the first three rounds, Main Ridge was set 235 for victory after the Piners were bowled out for 234. The Ridge never looked like winning, losing wickets from the outset with Nick Wilcox, Pat Jackson and Alex Coad all getting amongst the wickets for the Piners. Coad played arguably his best game for Pines, again realising his substantial potential and finishing with 4/27 from 14 overs. Harley Parker was also in the game, bowling just two overs and snaring 2/6. Shaun Foster top scored for the Ridge with 33, while skipper Nick Jewell was next best with 13. Long Island had a lot of work to do on the second day of its match against Somerville. A total of 13 wickets fell on the opening day of the clash with Somerville bowled out for 136 and Long Island finishing the day at 3/46. Pubudu Edirisinghe (69) and Michael Burke (51) were the not out batsmen when play resumed on Saturday at Ballam Park. When Burke became the first wicket of the day, the Islanders had won the match and were eight runs ahead (4/144). Stuart Swift (24) and Andrew Tweddle (32) then made a contribu-

tion to help the Islanders to 245, a comprehensive 109-run victory. Red Hill continued its recent domination of Delacombe Park, rolling the home side by three wickets. There is no love lost between these two sides after a fiery grand final last season and the Hillmen would have been tickled pink to put the Parkers to the sword yet again. The Parkers were always up against it though, defending just 137. Matt Merifield opened with 40 and Simon Dart scored 38 to steer the Hillmen to victory. Tim Collett added 24. Dean Blight was the pick of the Parkers’ bowlers with 3/56. Red Hill scored 7/148 in 64 overs. Moorooduc got the job done against Flinders, winning by almost 100 runs. The Ducs had put 192 on the board on day one and had Flinders 1/14 overnight. New recruit Pathum De Mel was the destroyer for the Ducs, bowling 16 overs and finishing with 7/35, including five maidens. Justin McLeary opened the bowling also and finished with 2/31 from 14 overs. The evergreen Kenny Cremen picked-up the other wicket. Flinders was rolled for just 106.

Seaford pulls off a big win DISTRICT

By IT Gully SEAFORD has pulled off one of its best wins in recent times, picking up a reverse outright against Baden Powell in MPCA District cricket. When play resumed on Saturday, Seaford was 2/27, chasing Baden Powell’s first innings of 189. There were early celebrations for the Braves, ripping through Seaford’s batting line-up for just 98. Seaford skipper Ryan McQueen top scored with half of the entire score, hit-

ting 49, while Shaun Allardyce hit 15. Braves’ skipper Craig Entwhistle was the pick of the bowlers with 4/17 while Nathan Rice snared 3/33. With first innings points locked away and a 91-run lead, Baden Powell went back out into the middle. Problem was, it lasted just 21 overs, bowled out for 70. Dale Christie snared 6/18 for Seaford. With 151 runs to get and operating against the overs’ clock, Seaford needed someone to ‘go off’ with the bat to get their side over the line. Enter Dean Polson. Seaford lost

some early wickets before Polson strode to the crease. He hammered 84 in just over 15 overs to help his side score 7/162 and pick-up the unlikely reverse outright. At the end of the first day of the Hastings v Rye clash, the Blues were in the box seat, defending 177 and having Rye on the ropes at 3/27. By the end of the second day, the Demons’ Tim Symons (58) and Clayton Barnes (34) set up the visitors’ victory. However, the work wasn’t done. It needed a wagging tale to get the job done. Josh Gana (26), Todd Harnett

(21), Andrew Dunn (25) and Dean Collins (10) were the final four batsmen for the Demons and steered their side to victory, finishing on 222. Ryan McNamara was the best of the Hastings’ bowlers with 4/75 from 24 overs. Mt Martha made light work of Seaford Tigers, winning by more than 100 runs. Resuming at 1/38 and chasing 117 for victory, Mt Martha middle-order bat Brett Wilkinson finished unbeaten on 59 to drive the Reds to victory. Elliott Lord opened with 32 and Max

McKenzie finished with 35. Tigers’ skipper Dave James was the pick of the bowlers with 4/37 from 18.3 overs. Rosebud was smashed by Heatherhill. Chasing 307 for victory, the Buds were rolled for 166, Jason Nagel top scoring with 58. Jake Theobald was superb for the Hills with 6/56 off 34 overs, including 12 maidens. Jason Hinde was also good with the rock, snaring 3/25 from 11.3 overs.

Pandas have dip but fall short SUB-DISTRICT

By IT Gully BONEO failed in its attempt to pick up a reverse outright win against Carrum Downs in MPCA Sub District cricket. The game was set up for an enthralling second day with the game poised with Carrum Downs just six runs ahead with five wickets in hand. Boneo was rolled for 73 in its first innings and Carrum Downs was resuming at 5/79. The Pandas achieved exactly what

they were after at the beginning of the second day, taking five Carrum Downs wickets for just 20 runs, rolling the Cougars for 99. Trailing by just 26 runs, Boneo needed at least 160-170 on the board in its second innings to have a total to defend. They were bowled out for 137, giving them a second-innings lead of just 111. The Cougars started well, set a foundation and cruised to victory five wickets down, finishing at 5/115. Leon McConnell top scored with 37. Balnarring had no trouble against

Frankston YCW, despite half-centuries to Jo Gott (50) and Jason Bedford (51). Defending 257, the Saints rolled the Stonecats for 198. Balnarring skipper Mal Coutts was at his best with the ball, snaring 4/34 from 21 overs, while Mitch Kleinig picked-up 3/33. Tyabb tasted victory against Skye. Skye kicked-off the second day of the match defending 142 and having Tyabb 1/21 overnight. However, the Yabbies cruised to victory six wickets down, James

Holland-Burch scoring 56 and Aidan Pateman scoring 50. Tootgarook had no issues against Carrum, winning comfortably. The Frogs trailed by just 80 runs heading into the second day and had an outright win on offer. Tootgarook declared at 3/158 after batting just 41 overs on the second day and threw Carrum back in to bat. The Frogs went so close to winning, however, fell agonisingly one wicket short. Carrum finished at 9/49, still seven runs behind.

Dromana was able to do what was expected and pick-up victory against Ballam Park, however, it wasn’t easy. The Tigers resumed at 3/15, chasing 136. That scoreline became 4/41, then 5/49 and 6/58 before Zac Klan (39) and Sam Fowler (49) took the Hoppers to victory. Dromana finished all out for 176, 40 runs ahead. Stuart Plunkett was the best of the Knights’ bowlers with 5/58 from 32 overs.

UK trio for Strikers, Cairns trio for Langy SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie OSCAR Marsden, Ryan Thompson and Zach Reynolds are expected to arrive in Melbourne next year to join the Andy O’Dell revolution at Peninsula Strikers. Marsden and Thompson are due here on 10 January while Reynolds may not arrive until late February. The recently relegated Centenary Park club plans to bounce straight back into State 2 and O’Dell has been tasked with effecting a major overhaul of the senior squad. The three English imports are an integral part of his plans. Forwards Thompson and Marsden play with Brigg Town in England’s Northern Counties East League Division One. Ex-Mornington striker Ryan Paczkowski and wide midfielder Nathan Smith are former Brigg Town players. Although Thompson is only 21 he is the longest-serving player in Brigg Town’s senior squad and in 2015/16 was the manager’s player of the year and the players’ player of the year. Marsden is 20 and his previous clubs are North Cave, Sculcoates Amateurs and Pocklington Town. Reynolds is a 24-year-old left or right wide midfielder who is with Southern League Premier Division outfit Chesham United. His previous clubs are Crawley Town, Aylesbury United, Dunstable Town, Arlesey Town and Hemel Hempstead Town. O’Dell is worried that other clubs will try and poach Reynolds hence his arrival much later than his new teammates. The Strikers’ gaffer is also wary of NPL clubs chasing another one of his visa targets, a 24-year-old former Sheffield United striker who is already in Melbourne and who is set for talks with O’Dell this week. Strikers have also agreed terms with three players from State 2 North-West champion Altona City, O’Dell’s previous club. Defenders Hayden Beasley, 31, and James Neighbour, 27, were mainstays in Altona City’s titlewinning side. Beasley is a former Altona Magic and Brunswick City player while Neighbour has captained Clifton Hill and also had a stint with Altona Magic. Neighbour won Altona City’s 2017 best and fairest and players’ player of the year awards. Lucas Wootton, 26, is an attacking midfielder who previously played with Brunswick City and is the third Altona City player to head over the Westgate.

Strikers have also agreed terms with utility Marcus Slimane, 27, a former Altona City player who played at State 1 level with Caulfield United Cobras this year. Former Scottish professional Jamie Paterson has joined Strikers’ coaching staff. Paterson played with Falkirk, Scunthorpe, Halifax Town and Doncaster Rovers in the UK as well as Dandenong Thunder and Mornington. At this stage, the only Strikers players from last season to have agreed terms are goalkeeper Colin McCormack, striker Aziz Bayeh and midfielder Danny Brooks. Central defender Raphael Stulz has trialled with South Melbourne and was rumoured to be in Mornington’s sights but the Dallas Brooks Park outfit has denied any interest. “I’d like to see him (Stulz) stay and he’ll be an even better player with better players around him,” said O’Dell, who plans to talk to Stulz this week. Strikers have lost midfielder Sam Scott to Mornington and are keen to talk to former player and current Mornington midfielder Craig Smart. However, Mornington senior coach Adam Jamieson is due to hold talks with Smart and is confident of retaining the Scotsman and has added two NPL players to the squad chasing next year’s State 1 SouthEast title. “I can’t give you their names right now because they need to

contact their clubs and tell them that they’ve signed with us but they are both very good players and we’re delighted to have signed them,” said Jamieson. It’s a fair hike from the far north of Queensland to Lawton Park but that has not stopped three teenagers from Cairns accepting offers to join Langwarrin’s new under-20s squad. Langy’s trying hard to keep a lid on it but that’s a big ask after you’ve beaten Croatian-backed Sydney United and Victorian clubs Box Hill United, Dandenong Thunder and Altona Magic to the punch. Brothers Cody and Ayden Eszes and their mate Josh Mulla impressed all onlookers during recent under-20 trials. All three have come through the ranks at Leichhardt Lions FC in the FNQ Premier League and have played regularly at senior and reserves levels. Mulla and Ayden Eszes are both 19 and can play as central defenders or as strikers. Cody Eszes, 17, is a midfielder or forward who played for Queensland at the national schoolboys championships. He was voted Queensland’s player of the tournament and attracted the attention of scouts from high-profile clubs. He has been selected in the Australian schoolboys side to tour the UK in January. Ayden and Cody are the sons of former Hungarian youth interna-

tional Jimmy Eszes. “All three are technically very good, big, strong and quick and with hard work and application I wouldn’t be surprised if all three were pushing for a senior gig at some stage of next season,” said Langwarrin under-20s head coach Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor. Skye United is holding trials for its State 1 women’s team on Sunday 19 November and Sunday 26 November starting at 10.30am at Skye Recreation Reserve in Ballarto Road. The club invites triallists as young as 14 and Skye is recognised for providing a genuine pathway to senior soccer. For further details contact Steve Babbage on 0418 632 121 or email steve848@live.com.au. Somerville Eagles are on the hunt for senior and reserve coaches and director of coaching Zach Pedersen is the go-to man for prospective candidates. “Our preference is for a senior coach who can bring in a couple of experienced players to show the younger players what it takes,” said Pedersen. “We’ve got a lot of talented young players but most of them have not played much senior soccer. “We’re hoping to hire a developmental coach for the reserves.” Pedersen can be contacted on 0400 026 912 or via email at zach@ elevationsports.com.au. Local women’s NPL club Southern

United last week announced the appointment of Graham Dudley as operations manager and technical director. Dudley holds an AFC B coaching licence and arrived in Melbourne from England 11 years ago. He has coached at Carrum United (now Skye United) where he initiated a senior women’s program, assisted Ian Williamson at Casey Comets in the Women’s Premier League, coached at Southern Blue Tongues and is a former director of football at Beaumaris. Dudley was Bayside United’s technical director and the club’s inaugural senior coach. He is the founder and CEO of Global Performance Testing International Limited which provides state-of-the-art sport testing and comprehensive packages to train coaches in reliable and accurate data gathering and assessment. “Our immediate aim at Southern United is to grow the brand and reestablish what the women’s NPL is all about,” said Dudley. “We will specialise in weakness identification and coaching and development strategies and we aim to create the most professional environment possible. “Our coaches will coach as a team and won’t be confined to their roles within their individual groups.” Southern has appointed John Meades as head coach of the under12s and is set to announce its new under-16s head coach.

Pro boxer empowers the vulnerable By Ben Triandafillou TAKING up boxing to protect himself and his family at the young age of 12, professional welterweight boxer Adam Kaoullas is now giving back to the sport by empowering the vulnerable. Now aged 23, and heading into his fourth professional fight on Friday (10 November), Kaoullas has been teaching young junior boxers and adults self-defence through boxing. Currently coaching upwards of 200 boxers across three separate gyms, Kaoullas says coaching the young kids and building their confidence is definitely the most rewarding class he runs. “Boxing kept me on the right path as I used it as an outlet to keep fit, happy and healthy when I was younger, and now the fact that I can give this to the kids is very rewarding,” he said. “When you see the kids come in you’d think that the aggressive ones will be the ones who enjoy it the most but it’s really the kids who are the most timid who benefit the most as they feel empowered knowing they can defend themselves. “I have never allowed any type of violence other than self-defence for the kids. If I hear someone doing it outside the gym without it being the last resort then you can’t come back here.” Kaoullas coaches regularly at Crunch Fitness, Mentone and Fit2Box, Moorabbin but it’s at the Pure Combat Centre, Rosebud where he has started to teach the youth.

“I’ve always loved teaching boxing to females and kids as they are sometimes the ones who are vulnerable,” he said. “I grew up with four women including my mother and a younger brother so I’ve always wanted to protect my family and now others.” Kaoullas has been teaching children aged between four and 10-years-old at the Pure Combat Centre for the last year and began a teenager’s class last month for juniors aged between 10 and 15 years old. “We have only been running the teenager’s class for the last four to five weeks but they have picked it up amazingly,” Kaoullas said.

“They have been able to pick it up a lot quicker and we’ve been having an even mix of boys and girls turn up which is great to see.” “We focus more on technique and their boxing with the teenagers, while we do 30 minutes on technique, 15 minutes of drills and 15 minutes of games with the younger kids.” Under the guidance of Australia’s current top rank middleweight, Sam “King” Soliman, and secondary coach, Steve Kerr, Kaoullas said he has tried to replicate a lot from what he has learnt from his own coaches. “Sam Soliman took me under his wing when I was about 16 and Steve Kerr has been like a father figure to

me,” Kaoullas said. “I’ve tried to absorb as much as I can from what my coaches have taught me. “I have taken many fundamentals and drills, different techniques and moves from them to help my members and clients improve like I have.” Undertaking a professional boxing career of his own, Kaoullas had his first fight in October last year and earned his first title win earlier this year. At his last fight on Friday 21 July, Kaoullas defeated Natthapon Chalotorn by knockout in the opening round at the Malvern Town Hall to earn the Australasian Nitro title.

In preparation for his next fight on Friday night, Kaoullas has turned what was originally a holiday in Hawaii into a training camp. “I have been training twice a day and the sparring is giving me a great workout,” he said. “When you’re at home you need to focus on so many other things as well as training on top of that. “It’s worked out pretty well as I have had a clear head combining the holiday with training. “ Kaoullas will face Dillon Bargero in his fourth career fight at the Malvern Town Hall as he continues to strive for an Australian title in the welterweight division.

Sutton cycles to success By Ben Triandafillou UP AND COMING Mt Martha cyclist Sophie Sutton has won the Mountain Bike Series at the Victorian Schools Cycling Championships for the fifth consecutive year. The year 7 student represented Padua College in both the mountain biking and road cycling state finals in Bendigo over the weekend of Friday 20 October. Sophie ended her fourth and final round of the under-15s Female Mountain Bike Series in second place, leaving her in equal first position on aggregate points for the series. Sophie, a member of the Red Hill Mountain Bike Club, tied with another junior from the club, Millie Chester, who represented Frankston High School.

Sophie then went on to finish runnersup in the under-15s Female Road Racing state final on the Saturday. Kelly Sutton, Sophie’s mother, said cycling has become her life since she started mountain bike riding in 2013. “She loves mountain biking, going on the jumps and getting dirty,” she said. “She’s been hooked ever since she went with her father to a local event that they had on at the Red Hill Mountain Bike Club. “She said ‘I want to do this’ and has continued to go from strength to strength.” Sophie is now competing in the second round of the National Junior Track Series (velodrome) in Sydney over the long weekend. In the opening round of the series,

Sophie finished in fifth place at the twoday event which was held in Darebin, Victoria last month. “We were blown away by how well she did at the event as there were kids coming from everywhere to compete in it,” Kelly said. “She has only recently started competing in the velodrome races so she’s done a great job to finish so well. “She was getting a lot of help from the Mornington Cycling Club and now the Blackburn Cycling Club is helping her, so she’s got a lot of support behind her.” Sophie has two more races in the series over the coming months which will see her head to Brisbane and then to Adelaide.

With stunning views over Port Phillip Bay & surrounds our beautiful new Function & Event Centre offers the perfect venue for your upcoming celebration.
