Swab test milestone
THE 100,000 swab tests conducted by Peninsula Health for COVID-19 are being described as a “significant milestone for everyone involved”. The “milestone” patient visited the drive-through screening clinic at the Frankston Hospital campus, corner of Hastings Road and Yuille Street, last week. “Thank you to every single person who has come forward and done the right thing – getting that test at the earliest sign of any COVID-19 symptom,” the operations director of Peninsula Health’s screening clinics Jodi Foley said. “As the coronavirus situation evolved in Victoria over these past eight months, so have we, continually adapting our service to give more residents the opportunity to get a test quickly and locally,” Ms Foley said. “I want to pay tribute to our extraordinary team who have dedicated themselves to this purpose since we opened the first testing clinic at Frankston Hospital on 13 March.”

Rail passengers kept out of the loop Brodie Cowburn firstname.lastname@example.org FRANKSTON line trains will skip the City Loop for the next five years. Major changes to train services were locked in last week. Passengers on the Frankston Line will skip the City Loop and travel straight through to Flinders
Street until the opening of the Metro Tunnel in 2025. An extra 45 services a week have been added to the Frankston Line. Cranbourne and Pakenham line passengers will get 90 new services each week, and will now travel anti-clockwise through the loop. The changes come into effect 31 January, 2021.
Other changes have been made to encourage passengers to travel during off-peak times. For three months in early 2021, myki users will receive a 30 per cent discount if they travel between 9.30am and 4pm or after 7pm on weekdays. Public transport minister Ben Carroll said “we’re introducing the biggest timetable change in a decade, de-
livering 450 extra train services to our busiest lines to give Victorians more options on their journeys and increase capacity on our trains.” “We know COVID Normal will see people travelling differently than in the past. Working from home arrangements, more services and a discount for off-peak travel will make it easier for people to stagger their trips.
“This is just the first step in the massive improvements Victorians will see to our transport network, with new bigger, better trains as we prepare to deliver the Metro Tunnel and our upgrades of every regional rail line still to come.” Changes to bus services between Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula were also announced last week.

Body found in Pines reserve A BODY was found at Pines Flora and Fauna Reserve on 3 December. Police were called after the discovery at about 11.30am. Police say that “the body is yet to be formally identified but is believed to be that of missing Langwarrin man Malcolm Bohmeyer.” Police are not treating the death as suspicious, and will prepare a report for the coroner. Mr Bohmeyer was last seen on 12 August. He left his Cranbourne Road home in Langwarrin to go on a bike ride, but tragically did not return home. Air wing, mounted branch, and uniform police officers joined the SES to search for him in the weeks after his disappearance.

Buses get a budget boost Continued from Page 1 The state government allocated $13.85 million in the budget to improve timetables and the frequency of bus services on the Mornington Peninsula. Services on Route 788 from Frankston to Portsea will soon run every 30 minutes on weekdays and every 40 minutes on weekends – instead of the previous 40-50 minute frequencies – to tackle overcrowding and give passengers more choice about when they travel. Mount Martha bus users will have better bus access with an extension of the Route 781 service to Dromana, while Route 887 – between Rosebud and Frankston – will be redirected along the Mornington Peninsula Freeway to reduce travel times for some passengers. Mr Carroll visited Rosebud to announce the changes alongside Nepean MP Chris Brayne last week. Mr Brayne said the state government had “listened to the community who have been calling for better bus services”. “Peninsula locals will soon be enjoying more frequent and more reliable buses on the busiest routes in the area,” he said. The MPs said the new timetables would suit those who rely on buses to get to work, school or university, as well as medical services and social events. Also, tourists will be better connected to popular attractions and to Frankston station. with Stephen Taylor

FRANKSTON Arts Centre welcomed back its first live audience in 258 days on Saturday 28 November for a musical performance of Spirit Lines: A Musical Reconciliation. Frankston City Manager Arts and Culture Andrew Moon said it was fantastic to welcome an audience of close to 100 invited guests as Centre staff trialled new COVID-safe practices. “The guests were socially distanced throughout the 800 seat theatre. Other safety measures included all audience members wearing masks, regular cleaning of touch points and new layout of the foyer space to improve traffic flow and encourage physical distancing,” he said. Originally programmed as part of the 2020 Theatre season and re-scheduled twice, Spirit Lines: A Musical Reconciliation embarks on the journey of harmony and reconciliation. Joining the musical energies of Indigenous Australian singer Uncle Kutcha Edwards, three-time Latin Grammy guitarist Daniel Jauregui and AngloBrazilian percussionist and scholar Adrian Hearn, it was a fusion of traditions. Regular theatregoers Colin and Myrtle Hughes said the reopening of Frankston Arts Centre had brought them great joy. “Thank you so much for opening the theatre

Pink Ladies get a boost COLES stores from Rosebud to Patterson Lakes and Cadbury’s parent company Mondelez and have joined to donate $10,000 to the Frankston Hospital Pink Ladies Auxiliary. The donation couldn’t have come at a better time for the volunteer group whose fundraising activities have been severely hampered by COVID-19. Frankston Hospital Pink Ladies Auxiliary president Carole Thwaites said the donation would make a big difference to the Pink Ladies and the health service. “Due to COVID-19 restrictions we have been unable to operate the kiosk and have lost a great deal in funds we are normally able to generate – this helps make up for some of that,” she said. “To be recognised by our commu-
nity in this way is very rewarding.” Peninsula Health executive director Helen Cooper said the funds would be used to buy medical equipment. “Every year, we treat more than 95,000 people in our hospitals and this donation will assist our team to provide the very best of care for our patients,” she said. Fifteen charities across the country were chosen to receive $10,000 from Mondelez and Coles supermarkets, including Beyond Blue in Victoria and the Hummingbird House in Queensland. Coles regional manager David Czislowski said the Mornington Peninsula’s 11 stores wanted to donate to a smaller charity in the area and the Pink Ladies was a unanimous choice. “The Pink Ladies puts a smile on the
faces of everyone who walks through Frankston Hospital, whether they are a patient, visitor or an essential worker,” he said. “We also know they rely heavily on volunteers so we hope this donation will be a great surprise and help to them.” Mondelez International’s senior sales manager Angela King said the donation formed part of a $150,000 giving fund from Mondelez International with Coles. “The local Coles stores told us they wanted to give back to local charities whose fundraising has been impacted by COVID-19 and we were delighted to help. It’s fantastic to see the Coles stores paying it forward to support charities and causes that matter most to them.”

Mayor trialling MND treatment FRANKSTON mayor Kris Bolam worked out of Alfred Hospital last week. Cr Bolam volunteered to take part in a trial for a medication which aims to reduce the severity of Motor Neurone Disease. “While I don’t have Motor Neurone Disease, during my time as a councillor, I’ve met local people who do,” said Cr Bolam. “Their determination to find a cure is shared by high-profile advocates such as Neale Daniher, through his FightMND campaign. “Their strength inspired me to take part in the trial. It is the right thing to do”. The mayor was asked three weeks

Customers take a seat outside THE first businesses to expand to outdoor dining through council’s Extended Outdoor Dining Program have begun to serve customers. The program saw Frankston Council fast-track permits for cafes and restaurants to serve customers outside. The COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent restrictions have meant a surge in the popularity of outdoor dining. Rosie’s Kitchen Pantry applied for the permit, and has now begun
serving customers. Proprietor Rosie Major said “while business remained somewhat steady throughout lockdown through takeaways, since the creation of the outdoor dining customers have been coming back in droves, which is great for business. We have also been able to put on more staff.” Council installed concrete safety barriers between the road and outside dining area at the venue. It also added colour to the barriers and din-
ing parklet bays. The creation of the local parklets to serve customers is being funded through a $500,000 state government grant. “I absolutely love the bright colours the council have painted the safety barriers. They really enhance the vibe and fun atmosphere we strive to deliver to our customers every day,” Ms Major said.

CLASS OF 2020 - That’s a Wrap
John Paul College Class of 2020 THE COLLEGE would like to congratulate the Year 12 Class of 2020 for completing their secondary education journey at John Paul College. This cohort has experienced an unprecedented final year and the College is extremely proud of how they have conducted themselves through such challenging circumstances; showing tremendous spirit, resilience, persistence and determination. Year 12 students celebrated their final day in October, where they were greeted with balloons, streamers and decorations as they entered their Pastoral Care classes in the morning. The afternoon followed with a sunny outdoor picnic lunch. At the conclusion of their lunch, the Year 12 students attended a Liturgy and Assembly, where they received a final parting gift from the College. Principal John Visentin recognised that this particular
cohort had a Year 12 experience like no other, as a result of the changing nature of the COVID-19 pandemic. “The Class of 2020 have endured the separation from their friends and their teachers in what is a significant year of their education,” Mr Visentin said. “They have also missed out on many of the milestones and celebrations that would normally mark their final year, which is especially challenging during their final days.” As the Class of 2020 move into adulthood and begin the next phase of their lives, the College wishes them all well for whatever their future may hold. “We hope that their experience of welcome, community, faith and the joys that they have had at John Paul College will stand these students in good stead for the challenges ahead,” Mr Visentin said.

Cash splash for school NEARLY $3 million will be spent to upgrade Carrum Downs Secondary College. The funding was included in the state budget handed down last month. Taxpayer funds will be directed towards refurbishments at the school’s science building, and other classrooms. Carrum MP Sonya Kilkenny said “I want to acknowledge the incredible school community at Carrum Downs Secondary College. Everyone has done a phenomenal job in supporting students to learn from home this year. And now, we want to make this wonderful local school even
better. Our kids deserve access to state-of-the-art facilities. And this funding will deliver that. It is an important investment in their future.”

PARC instructor among the best A PARC group instructor has taken out a big award at the Aquatics Recreation Victoria Industry Awards. Louise Craig won the group exercise instructor of the year award. “I’m blown away. I love my job. I love seeing people enjoy their fitness journey,” she said after her win. “I love seeing people who have never exercised in their life develop a passion for fitness and become someone who is coming week in, week out.”
Peninsula Leisure CEO Tim Gledhill said Ms Craig “doesn’t shy away from working hard herself within the class, motivating and inspiring her group to work hard and have some fun along the way.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...
Whale washes ashore at Stony Point Compiled by Cameron McCullough DURING last week, a huge whale was washed ashore at Stony Point. Weighing several tons, it measured 29 feet 8 inches in length. It had “a hole” in its side, as though it had been harpooned or shelled. We believe some, sailors are converting it into marketable properties. The value of the whale would be something like £200 or £250. *** “THE Age”, in a recent issue, reported that Kwong Sue Duk, the Chinese herbalist, who “hangs out” in Russell Street, was robbed of £1,200 in notes. Sue is what might be termed “a family man”. In China marriages are generally very fruitful, and as Sue had a quartette of wives he naturally accumulated a family, which today reaches the total of 56! Some family, that! – and a distinguished one too, as it includes doctors of medicine and philosophy, etc. Kwong Sue Duk proudly displays a photograph picture of the family in his shop window. Anyone who doubts the authenticity of these facts are advised by “The Standard’s” scribe, when next in the city, to visualise the prodigy themselves. *** LITERARY enthusiasts in the Frankston district, who may have perused Conrad Sayce’s latest output, “Golden Buckles,” were doubtlessly surprised to be informed, at the outset, that the Melbourne Town Hall clock boomed out eleven. That useful instrument has never boomed since it was erected!
It is, perhaps, a mere trifle, but those whose business it is to produce books should see that they are put out minus mistakes. The writer of these notes assisted in putting out Mrs Mabel Brookes’ “The Shadow of the Pyramids” some years ago, and realises the amount of energy that is spent on producing these works, but that does not explain away such glaring mistakes. *** ALTHOUGH every attempt has been made to ensure the capture of the three escapees from the Reformatory Prison, French Island, no trace of their whereabouts have been secured. It is believed that they did not come into Hastings, but escaped by the Forestry Department’s boat to the other side, and made into Gippsland. *** AT the Cheltenham Police Court some days ago, Mary Louden, of Frankston, was fined 10s and 7s 6d costs for travelling in a first-class carriage on a second-class ticket. She explained that she joined the train in a hurry, and was not aware what carriage she had entered. *** THE Red Cross Volunteer Motor Corps, who have so many times visited Frankston with patients from the various military hospitals, have made definite arrangements for their final fixtures. On Saturday last these untiring workers conducted many children from the city homes to the R.A.C.V’s children’s outing at Aspendale Park, where an enjoyable time was spent by young and old alike.
The second last trip will be to Chelsea on Thursday, Dec. 16th, whilst the last trip will be to Frankston on Sunday, Dec. 19th, when they will be welcomed and entertained for the last time by the indefatigable ladies of Frankston, the fame of whose hospitality has become State wide. *** AT the Cheltenham Police Court on Nov. 25th, James Reeves, of Bentleigh, was fined £5 and £1 4s 6d costs for using indecent language at the Carrum railway station. William Young, a North Richmond carrier, said Reeves was “sozzled through an overdose of stagger-juice” and made ungentlemanly remarks about a young lady’s stockings, whilst Mr James, the stationmaster, gave some idea of the “language that turned the atmosphere blue.” Reeves said that be had only two drinks that day, and was not intoxicated. “The language just slipped out”, he said. *** NEXT week, Saturday, Dec. 11th, the Frankston Pictures will present the far famed and fascinating superfine picture, “Male and Female”, which includes in its cast such noted artists as Gloria Swanson and Thomas Meighan. It is a picture, by Cecil de Mills, that recently attracted large audiences at Hoyt’s De Luxe. On Saturday, Dec. 25th, Thomas Meighan, with Betty Compson, will be featured in “The Miracle Man”, easily the greatest picture produced for many years. It was recently exhibited, at The Auditorium, and went better than any
picture previously exhibited there. It is a nine-reel picture, and gives the good humored Meighan and glad eyed Betty the opportunity to give a good glimpse of their histrionic abilities. *** A READER sends along the following chestnut regarding an American editor, who was in the habit of waxing sarcastic when he lost a subscriber. To one irate subscriber, he wrote: “Now that you have got angry and stopped your paper, just poke your finger into some water, then pull it out, and look at the hole you made – you will then see how much you are missed.” *** WHY is not railway travelling made more attractive to the general public? The time it takes to traverse the distance between Melbourne and Frankston is not typical of a speedy age, but the fulfillment of the electrification scheme will remedy grievances in that respect. Yet, the Railways Department contrive, unconsciously, perhaps, to make travelling more and more irksome as the years go by. A writer in a leading city weekly has made complaints with just cause about the inability of the public to book right through to Mornington from, say, Moonee Ponds or Northcote. As arrangements are, he must take a ticket from Moonee Ponds to Melbourne, and then go outside to procure another to take him on to Frankston or Mornington, and, except in season, a single at that. There’s no semblance of economy about the procedure, at all.
*** AMONGST the visitors to Frankston last weekend was Mr Roy H. Sprigg, of South Yarra, a scenic artist who devotes his talents to the art of making “the home beautiful” in Melbourne’s select localities. *** AT the last cattle sales at Flemington, five trucks of cattle from the Bittern district were yarded, and sold at good average prices. Calves yarded by Messrs L. J. Mulready and K. Greenway, of Balnarring, also realised satisfactory prices. *** WE desire to acknowledge the receipt, from Mrs Geo. Shepherd, of a photo of Le Estaminet conducted by “the Diggers” at the recent fete at Somerville. The Diggers raised nearly £100 on that occasion. *** SATURDAY last was a red letter day at Mount Eliza. It marked the opening of the new post office and the “Cambrian” Tea and Dining Rooms recently erected by Captain Davies, one of the most enterprising residents of the district. It was natural that such an important event should not be allowed to pass without a suitable demonstration, and it is pleasing to this chronicle that the ceremony arranged to mark such tangible evidence of the progress of this rising district proved even more successful than the promoters had dared anticipate. *** FROM the pages of the Mornington Standard, 3 December 1920
2020 National Works on Paper opens at Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery The Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery biennial National Works on Paper (NWOP) prize is one of the most prestigious awards and exhibitions in Australia, attracting leading contemporary artists from across the country working in the fields of drawing, printmaking, collage, animation, digital prints and paper sculpture. Coinciding with MPRG’s 50th anniversary, the 2020 NWOP exhibition takes place 5 December – 21 February. Seventy-six artists have been shortlisted from close to 1200 entries. NWOP supports and promotes contemporary artists with up to $50,000 acquisitions and awards, including the major $15,000 acquisitive award. The finalists represent how artists are constantly adapting and transforming the medium of paper. Paper that is soaked and pressed becomes embedded with the intricate detail of Annika Romeyn’s mark making that re-imagines the landscape at Guerilla Bay (Yuin Country), New South Wales, for a mesmerising large-scale watercolour piece titled Endurance 2 2019. Compositionally complex, Romeyn trusts in the process and the materials, relying on memory and intuition to match the wash and tonal areas across the panels. Paper is transformed in Jenna Lee’s captivating work re/verse/d, a series of small sculptural vessels created from deconstructing and reconstituting the pages of colonial texts which misrepresent or perpetuate hurtful stereotypes of Aboriginal people. For Jenna, the act of reading the original books opens a way of understanding how to deconstruct and transform the text. Paper is integral to Brian Fuata’s work Paper waits, a unique propositional work that invites gallery visitors to activate a stack of white A1
paper. This participatory performance takes the idea of a work on paper to a new dimension, embedding the structure of the paper as the object and central to the action. Through a set of instructions, visitors engage with a sheet of paper and their own imagination. The 2020 National Works on Paper prize is a celebration of paper, as well as artistic resilience. The works make up a time capsule of creativity, prior to the instability and uncertainty caused by the global pandemic. The 76 works presented in this iteration of the award were made in the preceding two years leading up to the middle of a tempestuous year where bushfires had already scorched Australia and a virus had started to plague the world. This exhibition offers a chance to step back in time and re-visit a period before we transitioned into ‘a new normal’ of social distancing and mask wearing. MPRG Artistic Director Danny Lacy said: “It’s worth reflecting on this in relationship to the vibrancy of the work on display. The positive energy, confidence, experimentation, humour, wit and clarity of the works sits in stark contrast with Melbourne’s recent lockdown and the residual haze of having just woken from hibernation.” The winner of the NWOP award will be announced during a special online launch on Friday 11 December via the MPRG website, judged by Louise Tegart, Director Art Gallery of Ballarat, Gina Mobayed, Director Goulburn Regional Art Gallery and Danny Lacy, MPRG Artistic Director / Senior Curator.

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES
Charles and Diana – My Part in their Downfall By Stuart McCullough A NEW season of ‘The Crown’ has been released. Season 4 of ‘The Crown’ covers the years 1977 to 1990 and, apparently, one of the episodes is set is set in Australia, based on a tour by the Prince and Princess of Wales. This prompts the obvious question – who will be playing the (presumably) significant part of, well, me? This is not the first time ‘The Crown’ and I have crossed paths. Earlier episodes focused on Prince Phillip’s time in the Navy. His friend, Commander Parker, lived out his days in Melbourne and was the chair of an organization that ran public speaking competitions for school kids, which is how I met him. It was weird to think that the kindly elder gent I met back then is now the subject of a fairly dramatic episode of ‘The Crown’. Now, it seems, it’s my turn. It was 1985. Prince Charles and Princess Diana were touring Australia. In response, we did the not-so-obvious thing and put on a rock concert at Hamer Hall when, for a more uniquely Australian experience, we should have invited them to a B & S Ball in Ouyen, with his Highness responsible for drawing the winner of the meat tray. In retrospect, it’s obvious, but we seldom thought to have dignitaries watch circle work back then. The concert included ‘I’m Talking’ (Kate Ceberano’s band), The Models and INXS. And ‘Kids in the Kitchen’ which accounted for my attendance. Being just fourteen, I wasn’t a member of the band. Rather, I was in a choir that was to be wheeled out during the performance by ‘Kids in the Kitchen’
to give one of their songs some much needed emotional heft. In the eighties, if you wanted to say something big, you’d stand on something big – preferably a mountain, building or, if you’re Cher (and let’s be frank – who hasn’t wanted to be
Cher at some point in their lives), a naval destroyer. For mystery, get some venetian blinds and – hey presto! – instant mystique. For heartbreak, show flowers being thrown to the ground in slow motion. In fact, pretty much anything in slow motion is shorthand for
emotional turmoil. Then there was the music. As a result of something I like to refer to as ‘We Are the World-itis’, quality music in the eighties had to stand for something. And if you had something profound to say, it wasn’t enough just to say or, for that matter, sing it yourself; you needed a choir. That’s where we came in. The song was called ‘Current Stand’. The chorus was incredibly uplifting and featured the lyrics: ‘Do what’s needed, meet still the sorrow, this is the way we stand’. To this day, I’ve no idea how anyone might ‘meet still the sorrow’. But it means something profound, reinforced by the sweet, sweet sounds of a choir. That’s how we ended up on the recording and, later, at a performance for Charles and Di. I’ll be the first to admit, I was worried. Having just turned 14, my voice was becoming a little – shall we say – unreliable as it transitioned gradually from pre-pubescent squeak to adulthood. The stress of it all was so great that by the time it came to the day of the concert, I had a cold sore on my lip so large that it could be seen from space. The day itself is something of a blur. It could have been that a lot was happening or, alternatively, it could have been the cold sore medication I was taking. When it came time for the choir to strut our stuff, I gave it my all. My voice had other ideas and I sounded like a wounded walrus, fracturing under the strain of a lethal combination of over-exertion and teenage hormones. I was horrendous. After it was over, I was struck by a deep sense
of shame. Having just witnessed my performance, Charles probably thought that Australia becoming a republic seemed like a pretty good idea. Later, we were escorted to a balcony when the Royal couple made an appearance. Cue general mayhem. Somewhere amidst the madness, I thought Diana glanced in my direction. There was an expression on her face, a mix of pity and admiration. Clearly, she knew that behind the colossal cold sore on my face was someone of indisputable quality and charisma. Someone profound. This was reinforced by the sound of ‘Current Stand’ by ‘Kids in the Kitchen’ playing in the background. Clearly, this what they call in the biz, ‘the money shot’ around which the entire season of The Crown should turn. Hugh Jackman will play me. Granted, we’re the same age and he’ll stand about three feet taller than the other choir members, but he’s so talented that he can do anything. And the part demands someone who can convey the emotional heft the moment requires… I’ve just finished watching season 4 of ‘The Crown’. It seems the producers have elected to focus on the couple’s 1983 tour of Australia rather than the altogether more compelling 1985 tour. There’s no ‘Rocking with the Royals’, no ‘Current Stand’ and no Hugh Jackman in the highly prized role of the younger me. Naturally, I’m disappointed. So disappointed that might go right out and meet still the sorrow. firstname.lastname@example.org

McKay memorial Friday night SOCCER
By Craig MacKenzie MORNINGTON will celebrate the life of long-serving team manager Tony McKay on Friday when it takes on Manningham United Blues at Dallas Brooks Park. McKay was 77 when he died at the Alfred Hospital on Sunday 15 March after collapsing a week earlier prior to a practice match against Caroline Springs George Cross. Friday’s commemorative event starts at 6.30pm and the Tony McKay memorial will be unveiled at 6.45pm. The match kicks off at 7.30pm and Mornington’s facebook page last week invited the family and friends of the much-loved figure and the local football community to attend. “Tony would have loved nothing more than to have all his family, his many friends and football family getting together to enjoy and celebrate his life and we can finally do this appropriately now that restrictions have been lifted,” the club said. “We have all been cooped up for too long and we finally have an opportunity to re-connect with each other over football, so please share the word … and come on down to Dallas Brooks Park … for a football celebration.” There will be an outdoor bar and BBQ as well as other fundraising activities. Proceeds from the evening will go to the Tony McKay Foundation which was established to support families of young players who find the cost of funding their children’s involvement in the sport prohibitive. “We are in the process of setting up a website and families will be able to apply for assistance,” club president Matt Cameron said. “It couldn’t come at a more appropriate time given the situation with COVID and a lot of parents doing it tough and not working. “The foundation will be separate from the club committee and will be run by people directly linked to Tony.” In NPL2 news while welcoming star goalkeeper Fraser Maclaren back to the fold Langwarrin also has had departures from its senior squad. As previously reported Luke Goulding has joined Mornington and goalkeeper James Burgess is now at South Melbourne.

Midfielder Jordan Avraham has left Langy and is training at former club Frankston Pines, flying winger Delarno Pharoe is now at Dandenong City while defender Reese Cox has returned to New Zealand. Defender Alex Van Heerwarden had been training with Strikers as he weighed up his options but a training mishap two Saturdays back has had devastating consequences. Scans last week confirmed an ACL tear which will sideline him for the 2021 season. It’s a hammer blow for Van Heerwarden who now faces a second knee reconstruction. In State 2 news Scott Morrison has stepped down from his role as assistant coach of Peninsula Strikers for family reasons. “The year off helped me realise how much time I was missing with my boys,” Morrison said. “Archie’s going to be playing closer to lunchtime which will make it a bit more difficult for me and Ollie will start doing his own little sports stuff. “Work is ridiculously busy as well.”
Donn Delaney will become head coach Paul Williams’ assistant and the club is looking for a reserves coach to fill the role vacated by Delaney. Skye United continues its efforts to secure a decent venue that can accommodate its growing needs. An audit of other local clubs in the Frankston council area reveals that Skye has the worst team to ground ratio in the municipality (12.5) having just two grounds at Skye Recreation Reserve and 25 teams. And Skye is a co-tenant at its home ground so it only has use of the two pitches from April to September. During the season Skye is forced to stagger training throughout the week and the senior men’s and women’s sides often have to wait for another group’s session to end before their session can begin. It’s a challenging situation for the progressive club to be in given that its senior men have won promotion to State 2 and its senior women are the only women’s State 1 outfit in the entire peninsula. The women’s program will enter the

2021 season aiming to clinch promotion to the women’s Victorian Premier League. Skye’s attempts to arrange a preseason venue have become an annual battle. The club is understood to have approached council having identified nine potential venues that could be used before Skye Recreation Reserve becomes available. Skye believes that some of these venues are used by cricket on weekends for spillover purposes and are not used throughout the week. The club also has asked council to allow it to use the Wedge Road multipurpose facility on Wednesday nights until late March. In State 3 news while Frankston Pines’ players are champing at the bit to face Doveton in a friendly at Monterey Reserve on Thursday night at 7pm the club also is looking forward to hosting Melbourne Victory’s local communities weekly football program which starts today (Tuesday) and runs from 4pm to 6pm. The program is targeted at primary
school children however juniors of all ages are welcome. In State 4 news Chelsea could lose attacking midfielder Nate Giabardo next season. Chelsea head coach Carlo Melino was waiting on Giabardo’s decision on which sport to pursue. “Nate has taken up jujitsu and if he chooses to do it on a serious level then he won’t play football next year which will be a big loss as he was our MVP and Golden Boot winner in our 2018 championship season,” Melino said. The club also expects to see Lachlan Davies back in action by round 3 or 4 next season after recovering from ACL surgery. Davies was injured during the 2020 pre-season. In State 5 news Aspendale Stingrays’ president Derrick Berends announced on the club’s facebook page last week that membership fees for 2021 had been capped for the fourth straight year. Fees for Minroos (under-6 to under-11) are $290 per player while under-12 to under-20 fees are $350. Stingrays senior coach Lee Barber looks set to sign 30-year-old striker Ugur Erdem from Tullamarine. “We are excited by his goalscoring abilities, his size and the wealth of experience he can share with the younger players,” Barber said. Mount Martha announced last week that Rhys Piper was the club’s new president replacing Dean Whitehead who had stepped down. Piper has been a Mount Martha resident since 2007 and joined the local club in 2017 when he started coaching his sons’ teams. He played in Wollongong and Canberra prior to moving to Mount Martha. In other news Football Federation Australia announced last week that it had struck a three-year partnership agreement with Priceline to support women’s and youth soccer in Australia. FFA and Priceline will co-develop sponsorship toolkits that will encourage Priceline’s franchise network to support local football clubs and associations. The national body also announced that it is currently transitioning to the new company name Football Australia after this change was approved at FFA’s AGM late last month.

Sayumi’s layoff makes 'world of difference' HORSE RACING
By Ben Triandafillou MATT Laurie’s progressive mare Sayumi has broken her maiden tag in comfortable fashion with a win first-up at The Valley on Friday 4 December. The four-year-old daughter of Sebring had placed in three of her four starts before being sidelined for eight months with a slight strain to her suspensory. Returning first-up and winning with her ears pricked by half-of-a-length in town, Mornington-based trainer Matt Laurie believes the layoff has made a “world of difference” for the promising mare. “She’s really thickened up into a lovely style of mare now,” Laurie said after Sayumi’s maiden victory. “I thought we might end up back on the fence and from that draw we were going to need a little bit of luck but they were just going well enough for a bit of space and Ben [Melham] gave her a peach of a ride so it’s nice to see her finally break the maiden.” With three 1200m races on The Valley card, Sayumi comfortably clocked the quickest time winning in 1:10.28 – more than half of a second quicker than the other sprints. Jockey Ben Melham repeated Laurie’s sentiments believing the mare has come back as a superior racehorse. “She’s improved a lot this filly,” Melham said. “I haven’t had a lot to do with her this preparation but she actually really surprised me with the way she let down the last furlong. With the way she let down, she’s definitely capable of winning better class races than this.” With the way Sayumi handled The Valley’s tight turning track, Laurie pointed to a possible return to the venue for her next start. “I didn’t have any lofty ambitions. It was just to get this out of the way but clearly she likes this venue so we’ll be looking for other races [back here],” he said.
