Diver dies at Frankston Pier Brodie Cowburn A MAN is dead after being hit by a speed boat in the water between Frankston and Mornington on Sunday, 5 May.

The man, in his twenties, was with another diver just before 1pm when he was struck by a speed boat. A passing boat picked up the diver and his dive partner and took them to Frankston Pier where they could get medical assistance. Paramedics arrived at the pier in order to per-

form CPR on the injured diver, but he could not be revived. He died at the pier. The second diver did not require medical assistance. The death sparked a search for the speed boat driver, who had yet to be identified in the hours following

the incident. Marine Investigation Unit detectives are investigating the death. A police boat and helicopter attended the scene, along with the Coast Guard. Investigators have appealed for assistance to help identify and locate

the driver of the boat. Witnesses to the incident or anyone who knows the identity of the driver are encouraged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report online at www.

NEWS DESK PROTESTERS demanded government funding for a multi-million dollar Centenary Park redevelopment on Friday, 3 May. Picture: Yanni

Tennis club protesters take to the streets Brodie Cowburn FRANKSTON Tennis Club members took to the streets to vocalise concerns about their future, with around two dozen people protesting outside the offices of local MPs Chris Crewther and Paul Edbrooke on Friday. The future of the club is up in the air, as their current home is set to become the site of expansion at Frankston Hospital. Frankston Council has been trying to move them into revamped facilities at Centenary Park, but neither state or federal governments have met council’s funding demands.

Council has asked for over $8 million each from state and federal governments to fund the project. It is believed that plans to include gymnastic facilities at the redeveloped Centenary Park have proved an expensive roadblock. Frankston MP Paul Edbrooke told The Times that “the state government has invited council to negotiate the project scope because we have a responsibility to avoid repeats of Frankston Council’s many previous unsuccessful projects which are still costing ratepayers tens of millions.” “Regardless of the fact that council insiders agree, council has refused to come back to the table and help us

fund a project for the tennis club.” Dunkley MP Chris Crewther appeared with the protesters on social media to declare his support for the project, despite the fact that the federal government has not made any financial commitment to it. “I’m very supportive in my advocacy for funding for this. I thank the council who have already put in around $11 milion,” he said. “It would be really helpful to get the state government on board to help me get the funding too.” The mayor Michael O’Reilly said last week that council would “investigate alternative options” if funding was not secured.

Session to have Green Wedge plan say on land sale out to consultation Brodie Cowburn THE sale of public land on Evelyn Street will be discussed at a two hour consultation session on 9 May. The sale of the land was to be debated behind closed doors at Frankston’s 18 February council meeting, but the debate was brought into open council. A “community drop-in session” will be held at the Frankston Civic Centre from 5pm until 7pm on 9 May. The mayor Michael O’Reilly said “residents are welcome to attend a drop-in session to speak with council officers one on one about the sale of the Evelyn Street land.” “I encourage residents to have their say and provide valuable feedback on the proposal. Feedback can also be given online.” Crs Glenn Aitken, Steve Toms, and Quinn McCormack opposed the sale of the land at the 18 February meeting. Cr Aitken said “ what you’re looking at is a sweetheart deal with one market. This is government working with another level of government, it is not an open market. This was brought up with the view of holding in closed council, with limited knowledge of the public so it wouldn’t blow up into public arena.” (“Move to cash in on public land”, The Times, 25/2/19) More information: frankston.vic.

THE proposed 2019 Green Wedge management plan will be put out for a six week period of public consultation. Frankston Council’s plan was debated at the 24 April council meeting, with Cr Glenn Aitken saying he was “totally dissatisfied” with the plan. Cr Quinn McCormack said “I’m not supportive of moving this forward to community consultation at this stage. I don’t support the findings or the recommendations of the draft Green Wedge management plan. They directly contradict the state planning policy in regards to the urban growth boundary which was implemented in 2017 and reinforced with the reelection of the Andrews government.” “To be pushing for changes to the urban growth boundary is foolhardy in my opinion, and it is not in keeping with the protection of the Green Wedge, which is what we were supposed to be doing in devising this management plan,” she said. Crs Aitken, McCormack, Kris Bolam and Lillian O’Connor voted that the process not proceed to consultation. Crs Michael O’Reilly, Colin Hampton, Mayer and Toms voted that it move forward. The mayor Cr O’Reilly used his casting vote and the motion passed in favour. The final plan will have to go to the planning minister before being approved. The plan can be viewed at council’s website and a hard copy can be viewed at their customer service desk.

NEWS DESK Survivor: Frankston bowler and cancer survivor Jeanette Kent with chemotherapy day nurse Michael Bethel. Picture: Supplied

2020 Prep Information Evening Cancer can’t knock bowler over COMPETITIVE bowler Jeanette Kent had dreams of representing her country in Japan last year, but was stopped by a breast cancer diagnosis. “My lump was 9.5 centimetres in diameter, it wasn’t small,” Ms Kent said. The Frankston local’s treatment meant she was not able to make it overseas to compete, but Ms Kent did not let that disappointment of missing out get in her way. “I had chemotherapy first and the lump shrunk down to 2 centimetres. Then I had a bilateral mastectomy, reconstruction and 35 lymph nodes removed,” she said. Ms Kent has now finished her treatment and recovering well. She opted to have her treatment at Frankston Hospital to help her keep up with her busy life. “It was awesome being able to have the treatment at Frankston Hospital. If I couldn’t

drive my son could easily drop me off, I’d get a taxi or they’d help organise a pick up for me,” she said. “When I was upset I spoke to Fiona in the chemotherapy unit who was lovely, Rhonda the breast care nurse was also so supportive and Dr Zee Wan Wong answered all of the questions I had. The staff are just fantastic, I could not have asked for better care.” After fighting her cancer battle, Ms Kent has now set her sights forward to her next challenge. “With my tenpin bowling I was supposed to represent Australia in Japan December last year. I did say to all my specialists that actually hurt me more to have to give up my spot, than being told I had breast cancer,” she said. “Now I’m getting my energy levels back and I hope to qualify to compete in Hong Kong next year.”

Faulty airbags have no respect for age SPONSORED CONTENT AR manufacturers want owners of older vehicles to ensure they check whether their cars are affected by the Takata airbag recall. Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries chief executive, Tony Weber, says thousands of older vehicles on Australian roads were affected by the recall. "Thousands of the outstanding vehicles are many years old. "Some are approaching 20 years old. They may be with their third, fourth or fifth owner," Mr Weber said. "Many of these vehicles will be in outlying suburbs and in regional and rural areas. "No vehicle is too old to check on and all necessary rectification work is free." Globally, there have been 26 reported

deaths and more than 300 reported injuries attributed to the faulty airbags. "A faulty airbag can seriously injure and even kill," Mr Weber said. "It can pose a serious danger to vehicle passengers as well as drivers. "This includes children regardless of whether they are sitting in the front or the back of a vehicle."

AIRBAG RECALL WEBSITE He urged vehicle owners to check the recall status of their family vehicles by using the automotive industry's Takata Airbag recall website and taking prompt action to arrange for the rectification of any affected vehicles. "It's a simple process - just go to the website and enter your vehicle's registration

number and state or territory.

OR TEXT TAKATA "If you have children, friends or work colleagues with older cars, please make sure they have taken a couple of minutes to check on the industry website or by texting TAKATA to 0487 AIRBAG (247 224)," Mr Weber said. "We understand vehicle owners are busy people, but we are dealing with a major public safety issue which can cause serious injury and even death." Australian vehicle owners have identified more than 1.15 million vehicles affected by the recall since the industry website was launched in July 2018. ■ This is sponsored content for Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries.

ARCHERS Jai Crawley, Tian Mortimer and Zachary Tonizzo ham it up before their events. Pic: Lyn Crawley

Archers find their target


BET TER N O I T A C U D E FOR YOUR CHILD On election day there is a real choice. A change of Government means Scott Morrison’s $14 billion public school cuts will be reversed. That means fairer funding and more resources for local schools to invest in helping all our children succeed.

MORNINGTON archer Zach Tonizzo had great success at the Youth National Archery Championships at Armidale, NSW, 12-16 April. As a member of the Frankston Archery Club he and teammates Jai Crawley, Elizabeth Ainge and Tian Mortimer brought home 11 medals: three gold, three silver and five bronze. Zach, 17, came second in Target in under-20 Male Recurve; third in Field and third in Short Range. Asked what he enjoyed most about the tournament he said: “It's hard to pick a single event as they were all so much fun. It would have to be the field course because, not only was it fun, I shot with great people and finished with a personal best.” Zach said he chose archery because of books he was reading at the time. “I thought it was really cool,” he said. “I’ve kept it up because of the joy it’s given me, and the friends I’ve gained since starting. “I'd love to compete at a few world cups, and, hopefully, the Olympics. I also aspire to claim a medal for Australia from a world event.”

The teammates competed in four different categories over the four-day event. Two different target competitions included one similar to the archery at the Olympics and the other a field event where archers follow a course through a bush setting to shoot at 24 targets – a bit like golf. Another event category was Clout where archers shoot at a long distance target pegged to the ground. Each category requires considerable practice and skill and archers must be accomplished within their ranking to participate. “We’re very proud of the achievements of our young archers and their commitment to endless hours of practice,” the club’s Katherine Mulheron said. “Each one has also shown themselves to be personable and encouraging of other archers.” She said the Frankston Archery Club was fortunate to have archery “legend” Hans Wright OAM, Australian Archery Hall of Fame inductee, as a life member. “He gives freely of his time to mentor other archers – including these four teenagers. Hans is also very proud of their achievements,” Ms Mulheron said.

Call to address station work ‘issues’ Brodie Cowburn KINGSTON councillors have voted unanimously to advocate for “changes and improvements to the level crossing removal project plans” at two Frankston line stations. As part of the motion passed at the 23 April public council meeting, Kingston Council will seek “further discussion” about expanded decking areas at both Mentone and Cheltenham stations. The successful motion stated that council would “authorise officers to negotiate for the additional decking at Cheltenham and Mentone up to a maximum financial contribution by council.” The amount of that financial contribution was kept confidential. The council officer’s report read that “LXRP wrote to council on 12 March 2019 advising the expanded decks were outside of project scope but indicating that subject to a funding contribution from council, the structures could be delivered.” “The delivery of expanded open spaces at the core of two major activity centres is seen as beneficial, offering growing populations more diverse open space, improved connectivity and a high level of amenity which will support economic growth and urban renewal of these centres,” the report read. “Existing allocated funds within the forward capital plan could be used to assist council to invest in the two extended deck areas with funding in the 19/20 and 20/21 financial years.” Council also agreed that there were a number of other “issues” with the

Station plans: Designs for revamped stations at Mentone and Cheltenham were unveiled in March. Picture: Supplied

project. The officer’s report stated that at Mentone, matters that needed to be addressed as a “matter of priority” are the “relocation of as many bus stops as is possible to the southern end of the station precinct maintaining efficient access between public transport modes, improvements to the design detail and

materiality of the new station building and surrounding landscape response, provision of an off-road bike path between Cheltenham and Mentone that optimally does not require re-entry into the road network, ensuring wherever possible the centre is not subjected to the loss of publicly available car park-

ing within the core of the centre and along the rail corridor noting the desire to enhance the positioning of the buses in relation to the station location, and maximising the retention of existing vegetation along the rail corridor between the proposed new station building and Warrigal Road.”

Cr Rosemary West said at the meeting that “residents may remember being consulted on council’s plans to put to the level crossing removal authority. Most people who made submissions or attended the meeting at council wanted more open space provided by decking over the railway trenches.” “LXRP has come back to us and told us if we want a town square over the line at Cheltenham and if we want to expand the Mentone station gardens with decking over the line, it will cost us an amount recommended by officers in a confidential part of the agenda. Officers are recommending we pay this amount, and I agree,” she said. The mayor Georgina Oxley said “it’s probably no secret I haven’t been a huge fan of the dealings we’ve had with the LXRA. I think we’ve been promised a number of things and a number of those things haven’t eventuated for one reason or another, whether that’s at Carrum or Cheltenham or Mentone or where any of the designs have been released.” “While there’s been a number of good outcomes, there are a number of things that were discussed, that we did consult with residents on, that we had many discussions with the LXRA on, and I think we have been dudded in this sense,” she said. “I think asking our ratepayers to foot the bill of what is a confidential sum at the moment, I think is unfair. I think these projects are in the broader sense not our projects, but in a local sense we have an opportunity to shape them. To ask us and our ratepayers to cover the entire cost of this is unfair.”

Crime ‘spike’ in Seaford Brodie Cowburn RESIDENTS in Seaford are being reminded to stay vigilant and keep an eye out for suspicious activity after a crime “spike” in the area. Frankston police detective sergeant Rudy Marsilli said that residents should be aware of a rise in criminal behaviour. “We need people to be aware. If you

see people loitering around or looking into houses, be sure to ring us to come and check it out,” he said. “Keep an eye out for people loitering on foot or people riding their bikes without helmets. “There’s been a crime spike in Seaford, but often we’re catching them after the fact. We need people to report suspicious behaviour before it happens.” Det Sgt Marilli told The Times that

there had been an attempted robbery from a Seaford Caltex on 10 April at around 5am. Two offenders forced their way through glass sliding doors and attempted to break into the cigarette cabinet. They were stopped by a smoke vapour deterrent which was deployed from the cabinet, and fled empty handed. Police believe the same offenders then targeted Seaford IGA on the Nepean Highway on 18 April, this time

successfully stealing cigarettes. It is believed the two balaclava wearing offenders committed the crime between 2am and 3am. Those offenders are still at large. Det Sgt Marsilli also said that around 11am on 18 April, a motorbike was stolen from Seaford. The Frankston Crime Investigation Unit are currently investigating. He also said on 6 March a home was broken into in Seaford, with jewellery stolen.


On 24 April a 42-year-old Seaford man was arrested and charged with seven counts of theft from motor vehicle and four counts of attempted theft from motor vehicle after witnesses observed him behaving suspiciously and called the police. The thefts are alleged to have occurred outside Seaford train station. On 21 April it was alleged a woman was sexually assaulted at Seaford beach.

Water pollution threat to dolphin health THE Hastings-based Dolphin Research Institute is hoping to widen its support base to help safeguard the lives of the entertaining aquatic mammals. Its adopt-a-dolphin program aims to have 100,000 people involved in ‘i sea i care communities’ by 2020 through citizen science, dolphin ecology and health and education. DRI director Jeff Weir last week told a meeting organised by BERG MM at Mt Martha House that the communities were launched in June last year with the Western Port community of Tooradin followed by Mornington on Port Phillip. Programs are run in schools, businesses and there are community events such as an annual walk and community workshops. “Our marine family is fragile in the face of coastal pollution, human disturbance and a changing climate,” Mr Weir said. “By adopting a dolphin, people are contributing to our marine research and education programs which teach and inspire us all to care for our living marine treasures. “Community support now will ensure future generations can be touched by our ambassadors of the sea.” The cost of adopting a dolphin is $98 and the DRI also enables members to adopt a dolphin with a dolphin swim for $180. Mr Weir said reporting sightings of whales and dolphins in the two bays was an important way the community could help conservation outcomes in Victorian waters.

THE family that swims together ... Dolphin mother Esther and her youngster Bouncer swimming close to shore. Picture: Dolphin Research Centre “We lead several important citizen science projects aimed at improving our understanding of cetaceans in our region and the issues they face,” he said. “Our programs, especially the Two Bays Whale Project, are carefully designed so sightings are validated to ensure that data are reliable.”

The best places to see whales were Barwon Bluff, Port Phillip Heads, Cape Schanck, The Nobbies, Pyramid Rock, Cape Woolamai on Phillip Island and along the Bass coast. Mr Weir said human behaviour needed to change to reduce catchment pollution. “While we have made progress with

pollution from industry, the pollutants from the impacts of us living around the bays remains as the major threat to our bays’ sustainability,” he said. “The institute’s social research shows that about two-thirds of our population think that rubbish on beaches is left by beachgoers. In reality, most litter on beaches is flushed

by rain, down drains and waterways. “This is a huge challenge because we only act if we feel part of the problem – and solution. “If it’s not safe for us to swim after rain, then it’s not safe for dolphins and other marine life.” Barry Morris

Labor onside for football works LABOR set their eyes on women’s sport in Frankston this week, with candidate Peta Murphy promising $1.3 million to revamp the home of Southern United if Labor wins government. Monterey Reserve homes both the women’s football team Southern United and the Frankston Pines Football Club. Ms Murphy said the promised federal funding, combined with a $600,000 state government grant would “ensure the community had access to modern, fit for purpose, female friendly facilities.” “Our investment in a new pavilion at Monterey Reserve will ensure it includes not only welcoming, appropriate amenities for women and girls but also that the facilities

are upgraded to provide a better sporting experience for all members of both clubs, and a better facility for family, supporters and the community,” she said. “Southern United is dedicated to developing female football talent, from juniors right through to its Victorian WNPL team. Labor will ensure the club has appropriate facilities to continue to encourage greater female participation at all levels while supporting aspiring players looking to reach higher levels of competition.” Monterey Reserves’ new pavillion is planned to contain a community function space, four new change rooms, two umpires rooms, toilets, a kitchen, office, storage space, and a first aid room.

Playing ball: Labor candidate Peta Murphy celebrating an election promise made at Monterey Reserve. Park pledge: Treasurer Josh Frydenberg and Dunkley MP Chris Crewther campaigning in Dunkley.

Push to ease parking pain TRAIN station parking was the target of the Liberal’s campaign in Dunkley last week, with MP Chris Crewther announcing $38.5 million in “budgeted” funding to go towards adding parking at Frankston, Seaford, and Kananook stations. “This funding includes $38.5 million towards a $56 million project to build parking upgrades for Frankston, Kananook and Seaford stations with Frankston to get 600 new spaces, including 100 short term parking spots, and Seaford and Kananook getting 100 new spaces each,” Mr Crethwer said.


“These 800 new car parks will take cars off the road and help our locals get home quicker to spend more time with their families.” Mr Crewther said the remaining funding for the “$56 million project” was a “budgeted amount the state government have already put towards Frankston commuter car parking.” “Funding is budgeted, so we’ll just have to work with council and state government on exact sites plans, designs and build. The start date will depends on the willingness of council and or the state government to push along the projects as owners of the site and or co-funders.” (Small green ballot paper)

Progress association refuses resignations Compiled by Cameron McCullough A MEETING of the Frankston Progress Association was held on the 2nd May when the following gentlemen were present: Messrs Jolly (president) Brody, F. Wells, Jacobs, P. Wells, McMurtrie, Wood, Lawrey, Jennings, Hyndes, W. W. Young and Mrs Burton. The secretary reported; that the Hallam-Berwick drainage scheme was in abeyance pending the completion of certain other water works; that the petition re Kananook creek was being well-signed at the various busness places; that the Health Officer had asked to be supplied with a specific case of sickness caused by the Kananook creek; that the Railway Commissioners said no alteration could be made in the train service till the time to revise the time tables arrived; and that the Shire Council had improved the portion of Williams Road, as requested. The Hon. Secretary tendered his resignation, and pointed out that he had accepted the position, conditionally on being relieved, by Mr Russell, in December. That gentleman had, in the meantime, left the district. In spite of all protests, the meeting refused to accept Mr Jeinnngs’ resignation. Mr J. B. Jolly stated that his time was now so limited, and his absences from Frankston so frequent, that he thought a purely local man could do more justice to the position of President. In tendering his resignation he thanked members for the loyal support they had given him and hoped

the Association would develop into a valuable asset to the district. The meeting, however, was in an autocratic mood and refused to accept his resignation. It was decided to donate a one guinea trophy to the Peace Celebrations Committee, and the sum of one guinea to the Anzac Memorial Hall appeal. Mr Jolly, on behalf of the Peninsula Motor Garage Pty Ltd., offered the use of a motor car, to be decorated for the Pageant. The offer was thankfully accepted. On the motion of Mr Frank Wells, it was decided to hold a working bee to clear up the undergrowth and ti-tree in the cricket ground, on Saturday, the 10th May (to-day) at one o’clock. All are requested to bring mattocks and axes. Mr Frank Wells was appointed captain-in-charge. The resulting bushwood will be used for a Peace bonfire. Mrs Burton generously promised to give the workers afternoon tea. Before the meeting closed, the President said “As Mr Young, senr, is present, I desire to congratulate him upon the success that has attended the joint efforts of himself and his able son, in making the ‘Standard’ one of the best country papers. It is a credit to Frankston, and is rapidly developing into a most valuable asset of the Mornington Peninsula”. He moved that this appreciation be recorded on the minutes. Mrs Burton, in seconding, said the “Standard” certainly, was a fine production.

Mr Brody, in supporting, said Frankston was fortunate in having a journal which so ably furthered the interests of the district. Mr Jennings, in further support, said that while his sons were away battling at the front, Mr Young and his daughters carried a heavy burden, and he well deserved the rest that came when his eldest son took the editorial chair. A town is largely judged by its paper, and the paper can make the district. The whole Peninsula should unite, in every way, in backing up an Editor who is such a valuable acquisition in our midst. Mr W. W. Young responded on behalf of the “Standard”. *** FOR SALE – 12 acres 2 roods 20 perches, 4–roomed House, 5–acre orchard balance cultivated, on cemetery road, Hastings, Price, £365. W. H. Steer, Tyabb. *** A GENERAL meeting of the Somerville Fruitgrowers Association will be held on Monday next, April 12th at 8pm in the local hall. *** A MEETING of lady members of the Frankston “Welcome Home” Committee will be held on Wednesday 14th inst. (see advt.) *** WORD has been received that Sapper L. L. Hearps is returning by the “Wandilla” which is due to arrive in Melbourne about the 12th May. *** HELD Over: Mr Murphy’s reply to

Messrs Johnson and Thompson was received too late for publication this week, but will appear next issue. Major Conder’s letter of thanks to the Red Cross, Frankston, the visit of soldiers to Somerville last Saturday, and other items of interest have also been crowded out. Contributors would oblige by sending in “copy” early in the week. *** WE are pleased to report that the Frankston Brass Band met for practice last Wednesday evening. There was a good muster of players and everything points to the Band being successfully re-established Mr. C. Willox will be pleased to afford particulars to any one interested in the movement. *** At the Dromana Police Court on Thursday the police proceeded against a man named Hans Carbukn for driving on the wrong side of the road and not allowing room for a vehicle to pass. Defendant was fined 20s with 29s costs. This charge arose out of an accident which occurred to Mr Goulding’s car some weeks ago. *** THE ladies of the Frankston Wattle Club entertained a large party of invalid soldiers on Sunday last. After a good lunch a programme of music was carried out. The remainder of the afternoon, until tea time, was spent “each in their own way”. The men say – “The outing was one of the best; it is useless to offer



comment on an outing to Frankston; it is ‘painting the lily’ or gilding refined gold”. *** IN another column Mr W. P. Francis announces that he is a candidate for the South Eastern Province in the forthcoming Legislative Council election. *** HEARD in the Train That there was a splendid attendance at the meeting of the Frankston Progress Association on Friday evening last, considering that the “Welcome Home” social to soldiers was the same evening. That on the representation of the valued secretary of the association and other members, the president (Mr J B.Jolly) has undertaken to interview Mr H. Masterton, who has a great influence in Melbourne shipping circles, and ascertain if it be possible to have a Bay excursion steamer call regularly at Frankston. That the road leading to “Beachleigh “and “Rubra” Frankston, is very dangerous especially the turning to “Rubra” at the corner of Mrs Foster’s property. That while “Ole Bill” (of Better Ole fame) is enjoying well earned repose, his friend Cupie indulges in terpsichorean revels even as late (or early) as Cock Crow. We are assured that this is “dinkum ile”. That Seaford intends playing a big part in the peace pageant at Frankston. *** FROM the pages of the Mornington Standard, 10 May 1919

Family fun day at Crossfit 1010 CROSSFIT 1010 was established just over ten months ago when owner, Candice Thomason, wanted to start something special. After being a part of CrossFit for six years and owning a CrossFit box in London, her drive to open CrossFit 1010 in Carrum Downs, was watching her nephews play basketball and their movements. Candice knew then, that she wanted to complete her kids qualification and help kids get better at sports and improve their physical mechanics. Having already completed her CrossFit qualification, Candice has turned her passion into a reality, with a big focus on families and bringing functional fitness into the lives of both young and old. Now, along with trainers, Ashlee and Scotty, their big focus for CrossFit 1010 is to change the perception that CrossFit is just for elite athletes, but a functional fitness movement that can help the fit get fitter but also help those that need it the most. We encourage older athletes, those suffering from illness, such as diabetes, those with injuries or mobility issues to come in and make the change towards a healthier life. Another big aim is to reintroduce the social and community element into working out. Having kids and parents work out together not only provides a great example for their children but it also reduces the screen time that so many children face these days.

CrossFit 1010 believes in celebrating everyone’s success, no matter how small. “We uplift those who get good results. We don’t expect people to come in and be the very best. We just want them to come in, and not be limited by what they think they can’t do. Come in and let us help you to see what you can do. We appreciate those who work hard and do their best. We award equal status to those that have completed their first push-up to those that compete at the CrossFit Sanctionals”, says owner Candice. CrossFit 1010 run classes Monday - Saturday in both the morning and evening, and welcome anyone that may be willing to make an improvement on their health and fitness. On Saturday May 18th, they open their gym doors and invite you to attend their Open Day. From 9am, there will be coaches available for a chat, body composition scans, stalls, and loads of free samples and workouts.

IRELAND’S MOST FAMOUS SINGING DUO RETURN TO AUSTRALIA THIS legendary Irish folk music duo began in 1975 when Mick Foster & Tony Allen formed their duo FOSTER & ALLEN. For three years they toured cabaret venues in Ireland and the UK. Their big break-through came in 1978 when they released the single A Bunch of Thyme in Ireland which stayed in the Irish Charts for an unbelievable 53 weeks. However, at this stage their success was only known to Ireland and it was not until 1982 that A Bunch of Thyme was released in the UK. It was played by all the radio stations in Britain and was soon in the pop charts, becoming their first top-selling Number One single. This increased their popularity and demand for Foster & Allen was now immense all over Ireland and the UK. They released another single Old Flames which made its way into the UK charts and along with their mega-hit single Maggie. These three hit songs became signature tunes at the sell-out concerts. Foster & Allen were now an international act playing sell-out concerts in the UK, USA, Canada, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. Foster & Allen have now achieved album and video sales in excess of 20 million

worldwide. Their easy-listening sound remains as fresh and exciting as ever and they have now released 30 charting albums over a 40-year career, the only act in the world to achieve this. Share a night of Irish music, songs and humour with Foster & Allen...Ireland’s most famous singing duo! Foster & Allen will be performing at Frankston Arts Centre on Wednesday 22nd May, 2019.

Pythons prevail under pressure DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn PINES have gone another game without a defeat this season, after just beating the Frankston Bombers past the post on Saturday. The Bombers proved they could be a threat to the reigning premiers with a strong first quarter. Frankston Bombers went into the first break with a 14 point advantage. Pines worked their way back into the lead by half time, but the momentum swung again in the third quarter. Heading into the final term, Pines would have to overcome a nine point deficit to keep their unbeaten start to the year intact. Despite their best efforts throughout the rest of the game, the Bombers could only manage one goal in the final term. Pines ended up grinding out a hard fought victory 12.9 (81) to 10.12 (72). Corey Buchan kicked six goals and nearly dragged his side over the line. Dromana kept up their impressive start to life in the first division when they took on Mt Eliza at Dromana Recreation Reserve. Both sides struggled to hit the scoreboard in a low scoring affair. Dromana led during every break of play, although they were only up by eight points going into the final term.

The Redlegs blew a chance to get back in contention, as they kicked six behinds in the final quarter and couldn’t score a goal. Dromana ran out victors 8.9 (57) to 5.10 (40). At John Coburn Oval, Frankston YCW lost at home in a major upset against Rosebud. The Stonecats led at quarter time but were put on the back foot by a four goals to zero second term. They were able to close the gap to less than two goals, but Rosebud ran away with it in the final quarter. Keegan Downie’s five goal haul was a big help for his side. The final score read YCW 6.9 (45) to 12.6 (78). Sorrento had little trouble securing a victory over Edithvale-Aspendale at David Macfarlane Reserve, claiming the points thanks to a six goal haul from Leigh Poholke. The Hallahan brothers also starred as Sorrento got the win 15.17 (107) to 10.8 (68).

Hillmen continue frightening run DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn CHELSEA restricted Brendan Fevola to just one goal on Saturday to secure an impressive win over Hastings at Thomas Barclay Reserve. Fevola hit the scoreboard with a goal just over a minute into the game, but failed to make an impact after that. He managed four behinds for the rest of the afternoon. Chelsea had to work hard and trailed at every break of play, but only by less than a goal. The Seagulls saved their best for last as they stormed home in the final quarter. They scored three unanswered goals to establish a buffer, which Hastings couldn’t chip back. Hastings also couldn’t find the scoreboard through their regular avenue Luke Hewitt, who finished scoreless for the second game running. The final score read Hastings 8.11 (59) to Chelsea 10.7 (67). Andrew Silva booted four majors for the Seagulls. At RJ Rowley Reserve, the form team in the competition Red Hill travelled to tackle Rye. The Hillmen have been defeating their opponents in dominant fashion as of late, and were out to do something similar to the Demons. A six goals to

one first term set the tone, as Red Hill put together an awesome display. Rye couldn’t get close all day, as Red Hill piled on the scoreboard pressure. Jonathon Ross booted six goals while Daniel McNamara helped out with four goals. Red Hill ran out winners 20.9 (129) to 5.9 (39). At Ballam Park, the competitions other in form side Karingal continued their undefeated start to 2019 by grinding out a hard fought win over a brave Langwarrin side. Coming back from a big deficit, the Kangaroos closed the gap and only fell by 11 points. The final score read 8.12 (60) to 7.7 (49). At Pearcedale Recreation Reserve, a five goals to one first term set the tone for the travelling Somerville to secure a win. Pearcedale looked poor all day and struggled to find goal scoring opportunities. Somerville ended up claiming victory 6.5 (41) to 14.12 (96). Ryan Gillis scored four goals for the winning outfit. The Yabbies enjoyed a good day out on the road against Devon Meadows, securing a 47 point win. Tyabb led at every break of play and looked impressive, taking out the win 7.10 (52) to 13.11 (89). Seaford also had a brilliant day on the road, thrashing Crib Point by 99 points. Aaron Walton scored five goals for the second week running to help Seaford to victory. Crib Point have had a difficult start to the year and were left licking their wounds after a 4.6 (30) to 18.21 (129) loss.


Strikers in seventh heaven SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie PENINSULA Strikers are back on the promotion trail after a stunning 7-0 thrashing of Heatherton United at Centenary Park on Saturday. Heatherton had gone into this State 2 South-East contest with just one loss this season but a first-half hat-trick from the outstanding John Prescott had secured the points by half-time. Second half doubles from Josh Calle and Anton Vulic completed the whitewash. Strikers had lost three games heading into this clash and although they are just five points off the pace head coach Danny Verdun believes that there still is a lot of work ahead. “While we’re pleased with the result we’re a long way from where we want to be,” Verdun said. “We’ll keep working hard to try and keep the results coming and we’re really looking forward to playing Knox next weekend.” In NPL2 news Langwarrin’s promotion push stalled for the second successive match when it lost 2-1 away to league leader Eastern Lions last weekend. Goals to Ross Staley had Lions 2-0 up at the break and Langy’s response came four minutes into the second half from Luke Burgess. In State 1 South-East news Warragul United recorded a come-frombehind 3-1 victory at home over Mornington to severely dent the promotion hopes of the Dallas Brooks outfit. Mornington’s goal came from a first-half penalty converted by new English striker Josh Hine. In State 3 news Skye United enjoyed a 3-1 home win over Bayside Argonauts in the annual John Ramsden Memorial game. Skye hit the front after eight minutes when Jason Nowakowski’s ball across the penalty box was cleverly dummied by Marcus Anastasiou and struck into the far corner by Mo Elhassan. Aaryn Rix came close to doubling Skye’s lead while Skye keeper Jonathan Crook did well to react to a quickly taken free-kick to save in a one-on-one situation and ensure that the home side stayed in front heading into the break. In the 65th minute Skye striker Mikey Turner wasted a one-on-one opportunity and Bayside substitute Rob McKenna equalised from the ensuing counter attack.

This prompted Skye gaffer Phil McGuinness to throw substitutes Daniel Attard, Jack Gallagher and Mitch Blake into the fray over the next 15 minutes and the moves were effective. In the 85th minute Attard played in Gallagher whose square ball was blasted home from close range by Blake to the delight of the Skye faithful. A Mark O’Connor corner in injury time was headed home by Gallagher to secure the three points. Skye defensive midfielder John Andrinopoulos was unavailable for this clash as he was overseas and will also miss Friday night’s game against unbeaten league leader Collingwood City. Skye’s FFA Cup journey ended last Tuesday when it lost 4-0 to Geelong at Stead Park in Norlane. Fellow State 3 side Frankston Pines went down 2-0 at home to promotionchasing South Yarra on Friday night in a contest marred by inconsistent refereeing. Pines’ central defender Daniel Mota was held up at work and couldn’t get to the match before kick-off forcing head coach Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor to rearrange his side by playing Travis Ernsdoerfer at the back alongside Cedric Benza. The visitors struck after three minutes when Leo Holmes charged down the left and his cutback was easy pickings for the incoming Richard Morrisby. Mota got into the action after 22 minutes when he replaced injured Alex Bevacqua freeing Ernsdoerfer to play a more customary attacking

role. Pines came closest to equalising when Joe O’Connor let fly five minutes from the interval with a powerful shot from 25 metres that South Yarra keeper Nathan Slowey deflected onto the bar before retrieving. The visitors had to soak up long periods of Pines pressure in the second half and the Pines bench and supporters grew increasingly frustrated with the refereeing. Just before half-time Benza was kicked in the face and to the utter disbelief of the crowd the referee didn’t even book South Yarra striker Elvis Imarhiagbe. Benza had to be substituted during the second half and taken to an emergency dental clinic for treatment. Partway through the second period Pines substitute Serge Yanez was scythed down with a lunging studsup tackle from behind and the referee chose not to send off the offender. Then with time running out for a Pines equaliser the focus fell on the referee once more. South Yarra substitute Michael Drinkwater went to ground easily and quickly via a well-executed tumbleturn which the referee thought was a foul. To make matters worse Pines keeper Alfonso Cardinale, who had been in fine form, turned what should have been a regulation save low down from the resultant free-kick into a howler. The ball wriggled out of his grasp and Ronan Kelly slammed it home from point-blank range. In State 4 South news Seaford United and Baxter recorded back-to-back wins for the first time this season.

Both local clubs won at home with Seaford beating Keysborough 4-0 and Baxter downing FC Noble Hurricanes 2-0. Seaford keeper Anthony Madafferi put on a master class in how to react in one-on-one situations with a series of smothers that belied the scoreline. Keysborough’s task was made harder in the 27th minute when keeper Bobby Pejkovic was red carded after charging out of his area and bringing down Seaford striker Mitch Lander. A minute into the second half the deadlock was broken when Lander persisted on the right and won the ball back then sent over a precise left-foot cross that found Conor Mcfall unmarked at the back post for a simple header. That duo combined in the 64th minute to make it 2-0 with Mcfall supplying the cross for an unmarked Lander to head past makeshift Keysborough keeper Adam Banks. Goals from Dylan Waugh and Lander completed the scoreline. At Baxter Park the home side went in front in the 17th minute when Lewis Gibson’s corner fell to Stuart McKenzie and his goal-bound shot was handled by a defender. Gibson converted from the resultant penalty. McKenzie should have increased the margin in the 31st minute when he broke through with only the keeper to beat but skied his attempt. Dan Disseldorp somehow managed to miss a tap-in after five minutes of the second half but man-of-the-match Nat Daher sealed the result in the 70th minute when he cut in from the right past two opponents and hammered




home a strike into the top near corner. In State 5 South news Somerville Eagles made it three wins on end when defeating Aspendale Stingrays 5-3 at Jack Grut Reserve on Saturday. A classic attacking performance in the first half put this one to bed with Mark Pagliarulo setting up Dave Greening for the opener in the first minute. Kenan Nuhanovic equalised for Aspendale when he curled the ball past Eagles’ keeper Nathan Brown in the 13th minute but the Greening-Pagliarulo partnership struck again when Greening set up his partner in crime in the 22nd minute. The visitors extended their lead when Carlo Cardoso set up Greening who beat a defender then rounded Aspendale keeper Jack Lindsay for a tap-in. Cardoso and Greening combined in the 41st minute before finding Pagliarulo who beat his marker then scored with a strike that beat Lindsay at the near post to make it 4-1. Somerville went further ahead in the 53rd minute after a Ben Meiklem cross was acrobatically volleyed home by Greening from close range. Aspendale never gave up and hit back through goals from Kieran Hughes and Guilherme Ribeiro to make the scoreline respectable. The result sets up an exciting clash between early season title favourite White Star Dandenong and Somerville at Greaves Reserve in Dandenong on Friday night. White Star downed Rosebud 5-1 last weekend with Rosebud’s goal coming from Tyrone Van Der Spek. This week’s games: TUESDAY, 7.45pm: Waverley Wanderers v Langwarrin (FFA Cup round 5, Anderson Park). FRIDAY, 8.30pm: Skye Utd v Collingwood City (Skye Recreation Reserve), White Star Dandenong v Somerville Eagles (Greaves Reserve).

Princess Jenni crowned Oaks victor By Ben Triandafillou MORNINGTON-based racehorse trainer David Brideoake took out the Group One Australasian Oaks (2000m) in South Australia on Saturday 4 May with his classy filly Princess Jenni. Despite a pre-race delay, the threeyear-old daughter of High Chaparral scored a decisive one length victory to land Brideoake’s third career Group One win. With champion jockey Damien Oliver on board, Princess Jenni weaved her way through the field to defeat the Archie Alexander-trained Mirette and John Sargent-trained House of Cartier. The victory was the first of two Group One wins for Oliver on the day, and his fourth Australasian Oaks win. Brideoake’s racing manager, Alex Woodhams, was on site for the triumph. “It was a bit nerve racking when I was standing up there, but the main thing is that you got the job done,” he said. “I knew if she got a bit of room, she’s a good enough horse and she always puts in. [Oliver] got the split right when he needed it and it worked out well.” Woodhams said the progressive filly, who has now won four races from her six starts, has shown a fair bit of talent right from her first victory. “Every run she’s had, even since her maiden win, she’s always been sharp, she’s always had a serious turn of foot but to overcome a bunch of problems throughout the run and still to sprint like that when the gap came

was quite impressive,” he said. Oliver, who also won the Group One Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) on Spright in the following race, was also full of praise for the filly. “Her last couple of runs she’s

shown that when the chips are down, she really does answer the challenge for you and she didn’t let us down today,” he said. The Group One win adds to Brideoake’s previous success with talented

fillies, having won the 2008 Group One WATC Derby with Grand Journey and the Group One The Galaxy with her three-quarter sister Griante in 2016.
