Monitor leaves six figure bill Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au THE municipal monitor’s stay at Frankston Council has come to an end. After beginning her tenure in December of 2017, the state government appointed monitor Prue Digby finished up at council on 16 September. Ms Digby was appointed to investigate council and prepare a report on

their governance. The total cost of her stay to ratepayers added up to just over $111,000 up to 30 June of this year. A travel bill of over $5000 has also submitted. Council CEO Phil Cantillon confirmed that Ms Digby’s stint had finished “following the recruitment of a permanent CEO”. “Costs from 3 December 2017 to 30 June 2019 amount to $111,210 including GST, equivalent to 84

sitting days, in addition to this were travel costs of $5,864.64,” he said. “Invoices for the period 1 July to 19 September 2019 are yet to be submitted.” The monitor had been due to finish in June, but had her stay extended after the resignation of former CEO Dennis Hovenden. After the extension of her stay was announced, the mayor Michael O’Reilly confirmed that the monitor has no requirement to submit

her report to council upon the conclusion of her tenure (“Monitor’s stay extended”, The Times, 1/7/19). When the monitor was appointed in 2017, the local government minister at the time Natalie Hutchins said “Frankston deserves a council that works in their best interests and is not beset by infighting.” “The monitor will work with the councillors to improve the way they work as a team, how they work with

Green light for Jubilee Park expansion Dogs let off the leash

Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au

A NEAR $35 million redevelopment of Jubilee Park is set to proceed after Frankston Council agreed to put an additional $9.74 million into the project. The works on the facility are set to include six multi-purpose indoor courts, including a 1,000 seat show court. It will also include four indoor cricket training nets, women’s change rooms, a creche, a cafe, and meeting and function rooms. Council had been lobbying for extra funding from the federal government, but eventually made the call to finish financing the project through Frankston ratepayers. The mayor Michael O’Reilly said “while it’s disappointing this important project didn’t receive the full federal funding it needed and deserved, council is excited to get the ball rolling on what will be an exceptional sporting facility for locals and the region.” “With netball and basketball such popular sports in Frankston City, particularly for young girls and women, this important project will deliver a regional facility suitable for everyone wanting to play as well as pathways for elite training and competitions,” he said. “Our $20.34 million contribution to build appropriate facilities at Jubilee Park demonstrates council’s commitment to increasing activity and health across the community generally as well as supporting our

$4.5 million. Frankston District Netball Association member Kelly Andrews said “this investment finally gives us a home for elite netball in the area after 15 years of searching as far as Cheltenham for a suitable facility.” Netball Victoria’s Amanda Basue said “we’re delighted to see this

rising sports stars in Frankston City and I’m delighted we can achieve this with all three levels of government working together.” Council allocated just over $20 million in ratepayer funding to the project, while the state government provided $10 million and the federal government provided just over

investment from council, state and federal governments to deliver a new home for the Peninsula Waves and netball across the region”. Construction is expected to start in early 2021 and be finished by 2023. More information at frankston.vic.gov.au/JubileeParkIndoorStadium

A DEDICATED off-leash dog area is set to open at Telopea Reserve, Frankston North. Frankston councillors voted at their last ordinary meeting to commit $70,000 in ratepayer money towards a 3750 square metre dedicated off-leash area for dogs with “signage, a multi use drinking tap, a dog bag dispenser, a solar light, a park bench, and table.” Cr Kris Bolam, who moved the motion, said that the decision to create a new offleash space reflected safety concerns from people who had been walking their dogs at Pat Rollo Reserve in Frankston North. “It is the view from a number of people that people can’t walk dogs in that area,” he said. The mayor Michael O’Reilly supported the move “for the sake of separating two groups and seeing how it goes.” “If this is successful it could be rolled out in the rest of the city,” he said. Crs Brian Cunial and Quinn McCormack opposed the move. Cr Cunial said that he did not believe that the construction of a new off-leash space was “going to make the area any safer”. Cr McCormack said she did not think it is “incumbent of council to provide offleash areas.” She said “there are 33 offleash areas [in the municipality], I don’t want to see $70,000 put towards one.” Councillors directed the CEO to find funding for the new area in the present budget.

“It doesn’t matter if your pet wears feathers, fur, wool, scales or a tutu, let this day be a celebration for them.” The annual event comes amid a renewed social media push to repeal the dog ban in Frankston’s CBD. The Frankston Community Noticeboard, a Facebook page with nearly 30,000 followers, penned a letter to the mayor last month asking for the ban to be revoked. The event starts at 10am and runs until 3pm. Attending pets must be on lead and vaccinated.

Program cut: Former youth mayors Gerard Felipe and Aaron Quarrell. Picture: Supplied

Youth mayor program scrapped Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au THE youth mayor program at Frankston Council has been given the chop. The program ran for less than two years. Gerard Felipe was appointed the inaugural youth mayor in early 2018, and completed a one year term. The second youth mayor Aaron Quarrell resigned four months into his term. At council’s most recent meeting, councillors voted to discontinue the program. Cr Brian Cunial supported scrapping the program, calling it a “complete and utter waste of time.” Cr Quinn McCormack said that the program should be scrapped because it has “no real benefit to council”. “The role has resulted in more negatives than positives,” she said. She said that the work

done by youth council had proved much more positive. Cr Kris Bolam said that abolishing the program would be a “shocking indictment on young people.” “Just last month we voted to continue [the program], now a month later we’re voting to take it away,” he said. “People complain that young people don’t get engaged. (...) It would be a damn shame to take this away.” Crs Glenn Aitken, Kris Bolam, and Lillian O’Connor supported keeping the program, and Crs Cunial, McCormack, Sandra Mayer, and Michael O’Reilly voted to scrap it. Councillors had begun the discussion by debating the merit of lowering the age bracket for the program down to 12 years old, before an alternate motion was moved to abolish it entirely. Just three weeks earlier, council had debated the merits of the program behind closed doors and not voted to discontinue it.

The hammer was used to remove the cement drain cap out of the way, and the echidna was successfully freed.

Grand final arrests POLICE removed 243 drinks drivers and 265 drug drivers from the road statewide as part of Operation Scoreboard. They detected 8702 traffic offences and 746 crime offences while their increased presence was out on the roads. Road Policing Command Assistant Commissioner Stephen Leane said it was “disappointing to see so many people make the conscious decision to drink or take drugs and get behind the wheel of a car.” “Everyone wants to have a good time on the footy grand final weekend, but unfortunately due to poor choices some people were either hit with a fine, lost demerits or had their car impounded,” he said. “Saying this, the majority of people did the right thing and were able to enjoy the weekend for all it had to offer.” Over 100,000 breath tests were conducted across the course of the police operation.

Police deploy spikes CARRUM Downs police members responded to a call that a person was standing over someone with a hammer, but arrived to find that they were trying to help an echidna. The echidna was stuck in a drain and could not get out.

TR0727

TWO men have been charged over a series of burglaries and thefts in Frankston and on the Mornington Peninsula in the past three weeks. A Rosebud man, 23, and a Port Arlington man, 32, were arrested at a Mornington McDonald’s car park by members of the Somerville Highway Patrol and Mornington police, 11.30pm, Thursday 26 September. The allegedly stolen car they were driving had been seen earlier at Mt Martha and again in the restaurant car park. The Rosebud man is facing 15 charges, including aggravated carjacking, firearms offences, theft of a vehicle and handling stolen goods. The Port Arlington man is facing 47 charges, including burglary, theft of, and theft from, motor vehicles. Detectives say the offences were committed between 6 and 26 September, and included an incident at Frankston on 17 September in which a man was allegedly hit on the forehead with a hand gun at a Nepean Highway service station. The arrests formed part of Operation Night Eagle, a Southern Metro Division 4 operation focused on recidivist offenders. It aimed to reduce high harm and high-impact crimes, including vehicle-related crime. The pair appeared before a bail justice on Friday and were remanded in custody. The Rosebud man was remanded in custody and is due to appear in the Melbourne Magistrates court on

17 October. The other man is set to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court at a later date.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Hard line taken with the Frankston Gas and Electric Supply Co Compiled by Cameron McCullough AT the Council meeting last week particulars in connection with the Frankston Gas and Electric Supply Coy were laid on the table. The Order-in-Council granting the Company its concessions was made on the 18th April 1916. Under the provision of the order the electric light was to be extended throughout the Frankston Riding 18 month after the date named, and 12 months after that was to be available in Somerville and Hastings. Cr Mason – It should have been in Hastings long ago. Cr Murray said the war probably was partly responsible for the delay. Cr Mason said the company now asked that they be given an extension of time in which to electrify the street lamps in Frankston. The Council was paying £6 per lamp for gas whereas the electric light would be only £4. He would move that the Company be informed that it must take immediate steps to effect the electrification of the street lamps in Frankston, to be completed by the 1st January 1920, and that the Council be notified in a month’s time as to what progress had been made with the work. Cr Oates seconded the motion which was carried. Cr Howell said he saw no mention of Seaford in the Order-in-Council. In a recent letter to the Seaford Progress Association the Company said it held rights over Seaford. From a casual glance through the conditions embodied in the Order-inCouncil he noticed that Section 24 required the Company to maintain a

continuous service. Section 27 provided for a penalty of £2 per day if the Company failed in that respect and Section 29 also required that constant power should be maintained. In every instance it seemed under the order that the company was compelled to supply constant power. He knew and every one else knew that they did not supply constant power or anything like it. Cr Mason said that Seaford was included in the area to be supplied with electric power within 18 months from the granting of the area. Cr Howell said the company should be compelled to carry out its agreement and extend to Seaford at once, where there were four business places waiting to install the light. These also would pay interest and sinking fund. Cr Armstrong agreed that steps should be taken to insist on the company carrying out its agreement and extend to Seaford at once. Cr Latham moved, that the Company be informed that if the terms of the agreement are not carried out the full penalties would be enforced. Cr Unthank seconded. He thought there had been enough fooling about. The motion was carried. *** THE Cornopia in connection with the Frankston State School has been postponed. *** MR F. N. Fairs dentist will visit Somerville on Tuesday October 14th and October 28th. See advt. ***

OWING to a printers error the names “Cameron and McCulloch” were omitted from our par, “Veterans praised” in the last week’s issue. We are well aware that these players need no bouquets from us, and in all probability 99 per cent of our readers will have read the names where they should have appeared, however, this explanation is for the benefit of the one hundredth. *** HASTINGS Social Club – The Hastings Hall social will celebrate its opening night on Saturday (to-night.) An attractive programme of singing, dancing and games will be provided and a refreshment bar will be available for patrons. The gathering will also witness the installation of the new light which is sure to be appreciated. Particulars appear in advertisement. *** IT will be seen by reference to our advertising columns that Messrs Sherlock and Hay intend entering into business in Frankston as timber merchants, builders and contractors etc. The new firm are erecting premises on a commanding site in Young Street, abutting on the Station yards and in this commanding position they intend opening out in a large way and on progressive lines. The members of the firm are both well and favorably known throughout the district. Mr R. Sherlock recently returned home after several years abroad (incidentally serving several years at the battle front.) Prior to the war he spent a long period in South Africa where he gained a

wide and varied experience in matters relating to modern building requirements. Mr A. Hay has been established in Frankston for some years and is a thoroughly practical man. *** THE dinner tendered to the Frankston football team on Saturday 4th inst. proved a great social success. The tables were beautifully decorated with red and black drapings, red ixias and palms and simply groaned under the burden of good things to eat and drink. A huge doll dressed as a Frankston footballer occupied the centre of the top table until commandeered by “Smitho.” The ladies who acted as hostesses have already gained a reputation for doing this sort of thing in regal fashion and this their last effort adds another laurel to the wreath. Among the fifty odd guests were Messrs Floyd (capt.) and Moffat (Hastings) and Messrs Firth (capt.) Benson and Webb (Somerville). After the sumptuous repast had been partaken of Lieut. Turner as chairman rose and proposed the toast of The King which was drunk with musical honors. “The Premiers” proposed by Cr Oates was then drunk and Mr W. Cain, Frankston’s captain suitably responded. Mr McCulloch followed with “The visiting teams” thanking the Hastings and Somerville representatives for their presence, he (the speaker) thought their attendance was consistent with their sportsman like conduct throughout the season.

Messrs Floyd (Hastings) and Firth (Somerville) responded. The next toast was the Frankston Committee which was proposed by Mr Dalman and replied to by Mr E. K. McComb who made reference to the assistance rendered by the Ladies Committee. “The Trainer” was honored and after Mr Humphries in reply had hoped to do the same thing next year “Smitho” was called upon to propose The Goal and Boundary umpires to which Messrs Clipperton, and Keith Tait replied. “The Ladies present” proposed by Mr Wall who said that although he had played with several teams he had never met such fine supporters as the Frankston ladies. Pte. Bolger also spoke eulogistically of the hostesses. Sgt. Thompson responding. Miss McLean then favored the company with a recitation and, later “The President” was proposed by Mr E. McComb. “The Beef Tea” ladies and Mr Coxall by Mr Humphries, Mr Reg. Coxall responding, and Mrs Maloney (who has given sherry every match) by Mr Murphy. When the tables had been removed dancing was started and continued until midnight. Messrs Brierly (piano) and Buller (violin) providing delightful music. Mr H. Garrood took a flash light photo during the evening. *** FROM the pages of the Mornington Standard, 11 October 1919

WHAT’S NEW...

David Hockney: Prints – A National Gallery of Australia exhibition DAVID Hockney is considered one of the most influential British artists of the 20th century and an important contributor to the pop art movement of the 1960s. This exhibition highlights his talents as one of the greatest printmakers of our time and is a thrilling insight into the mind of an iconic artist still searching for new ways of seeing. The exhibition is drawn from the National Gallery of Australia’s extensive collection, presenting over 80 works from 1961 to the present day including prints developed using lithography and etching, photocopiers and fax machines, and more recently, iPhones and iPads. A truly international artist who moved to Los Angeles in 1964 and during his lifetime exhibited widely in the USA, UK and Europe, David Hockney has always demonstrated a profound visual curiosity and desire to surprise, shock and entertain. Visitors can explore David Hockney and printmaking further through curator floor talks, a printmaking workshop, kids programs and a special talk with John Hockney, David

ON THE COVER

DUAL FAMILY ACCOMMODATIONS ON A FANTASTIC HALF ACRE COMFORTABLY set across a fantastic, flat 2023 square metre block, this well-presented property is perfectly set up for large or extended families with two self-contained homes providing endless options. Set well back from the road for a welcome sense of privacy, the block is completely fenced and features excellent lawn areas to the front and back for children and pets. A long gravel driveway provides plenty of off-street parking and there is a double carport in between the two residences. A separate, fully-lined double garage - currently being utilised as a personal training studio - also has additional storage space. The main home has an inviting lounge room with bay window and the adjoining formal dining zone, or even a great games area, is tucked around the corner. Handsome polished timber floors extend throughout the space and a raked timber ceiling adds a nice touch of character. The dining area leads through to a bright kitchen which has plenty of storage solutions and from the family meals zone you step out to the rear timber deck. The master bedroom at the front has a walk-in wardrobe and a large ensuite has a spa bath, whilst two more bedrooms both have built-in robes and share the main bathroom.

INDUSTRIAL & COMMERCIAL

WINNING THE CROWD: Geoffrey and Michael Crowder work the bidders at the auction of 233 Beach Street, Frankston

CHEERS ALL ROUND AS FREEHOLD PROPERTY IN BEACH STREET HITS A NEW MARK DEMAND for commercial property from investors remains exceptionally strong if the results from a recent Frankston auction are any indication. A property at 233 Beach Street - a popular bottle shop in a busy retail strip – was successfully sold under the hammer on August 23 after receiving an astonishing 114 bids. The property was put on the market when bidding reached $530,000 with the building eventually being sold to the owner of an adjoining property for $730,000. A new 5 x 5 year lease had been exercised in advance by the long standing tenant, and the current rent of $21,818 comes up for a market review next February. “This property is in the best retail shopping strip in Frankston where there is hardly ever a vacancy. A strong lease, business and tenant, freehold title and the price point generated nearly 50 enquires.” Geoffrey Crowder explained “Too much is made about overseas investors; they seldom look at property under $10 million and generally stick to capital cities and inner suburbs. There’s still plenty of money around for good, small investments, and with interest rates likely to stagnate at around 1.5% on term deposit, real estate is still the preferred option for most investors”.n

DON’T PUT YOUR FOOT IN IT AND MISS OUT TO be auctioned on site, Friday November 1, this prime peninsula freehold is perfect for any investor looking to get a foothold into the commercial property market. Set on a 873 square metre block along busy Point Nepean Road, the building measures about 240 square metres and comprises five consulting rooms, a reception area, and staff facilities. It has been securely leased for 21 years to a well-established podiatry clinic. A 5 x 5 x 5 year lease is in place and rental return is $84,000 per annum with annual increases. There are 10 on-site car spaces and a fantastic road frontage of more than 17 metres which really adds potential for any future re-development (STCA).n

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

Boris Johnson – My Part in his Downfall By Stuart McCullough IT happened again last night. There I was, fast asleep at two o’clock in the morning when I was awakened by the sound of a small stone tapping against the window. I was, of course, suspicious. Small stones don’t tend to tap themselves against windows. They require assistance. I turned on my bedside lamp, put on my slippers and picked up the emergency cricket bat I always keep on hand in case of intruders, before walking to the front door. I gripped the handle. I gritted my teeth. I flung open the door and was confronted by the unholy sight of Boris Johnson. Without hesitation, I used my cricket bat to give him an absolute thrashing. As he whimpered, “It’s me! Boris!” over and over and over again; it never dawned on him that he was being beaten precisely because he was Boris Johnson and not as a result of mistaken identity. After tiring, I threw the cricket bat to one side and let him come in. He thanked me profusely and scurried inside before perching on the couch, at which point he started rocking back and forth. There’s no point denying it – for some time now I’ve been giving Boris Johnson advice. It is not going well. He emailed me after seeing my ad in the Frankston Times, offering strategic guidance on geo-political matters and basic grooming. We skyped each other shortly afterwards and, after catching sight of the man, I’ll admit I viewed it as something of a personal challenge. However, I’ve begun to regret ever agreeing to help, as he seems determined to turn even the sagest of advice into an unmitigated disaster that makes the Hindenberg look like a minor fender bender. Gripping his knees and rolling back and forth, he began to mumble. “It’s breakfast”, he whispered. Not again, I thought. “Look, I’m happy to walk you through the toaster once more but this is the last time….” His head snapped up, his red, tear-stained cheeks began to puff. “No, no, no!” he wailed. “Not breakfast. Brexit!” I’ll

admit that made more sense. Boris and I had agreed weeks earlier to abandon the toaster in favour of an ‘Up and Go’ to avoid confusion. He explained to me that he’d just been required to return to work against his will. I suspected it was not the first time this has happened to him. “I’m having an absolutely beastly time”, he explained. “I tried to prorogue Parliament, just like you suggested, but the Supreme Court said it was blooming well out of order!” My heart sank. I asked him which imbecile had been so mentally bankrupt so as to suggest cancelling Parliament before he looked at me from beneath his blonde mop and said, “It was your

idea”’ Incensed, I looked around for my cricket bat before the penny dropped. “I never said prorogue. Not in a million years would I suggest something so totally stupid”. He looked hurt and began shaking his head. I realized then that, when last we spoke, I had cleared my throat in such a way that, to a dimwitted mature-age Etonian, it may have sounded something like the word ‘prorogue’. Then again, it would also have sounded a little like ‘Poroit’, but I don’t see him growing a little moustache and speaking in a Belgian accent – after all, not speaking in a Belgian accent is kind of what the whole Brexit thing is about. Besides,

the only mystery that needs solving right now is how a giant cabbage patch kid managed to take something that was broken and bust it up beyond recognition. In the same way that someone might decide to fix a flat tyre by setting fire to the entire car, so too has Boris managed to louse things up; in spite of my excellent advice. “What should I do now?” he whimpered, a hangdog expression sitting on his face like a wet towel. Desperately keen to move beyond the reach of those European overlords who, according to Boris, were being “quite beastly about the whole thing”, the answer was obvious – tow Britain out to sea. Forget negotiating an exit deal; those bureaucratic thanatoids will struggle to find the UK much less cut a deal with it. I could see he was thinking it over because his lips were moving. “But what about Ireland?” he eventually asked, probably for the first time ever in his entire adult life. I leaned in. “Exactly”, I answered. Granted, towing the old island out to sea might seem a bit like running away, but I told Boris he should think of it more like doing a runner at a restaurant after being served a lousy meal. But as he mulled things over – which he did by rolling his eyes around and groaning, I told him to think about the consequences of leaving. Indeed, leaving the European Union might be the single biggest over-reaction to getting rolled at Eurovision since Dustin the Turkey got trounced in 2008. But Boris seems determined. It’s just that he doesn’t seem to be much else other than determined. It’s probably not enough. To say nothing of re-imposing an Irish border without any consideration of the consequences. By now, I’d had enough of Boris. Using a muffin to lure him outside, I then shooed him away with a broom handle. Last I saw, he was galloping away on all fours, chasing random cars and barking at the moon. Hopefully, that’s the last I’ll see of him. stuart@stuartmccullough.com Frankston Times

Shark attack: Sorrento bowled out Mornington to cement a 13 run win. Picture: Andrew Hurst

Red Hill snare last wicket win By Brodie Cowburn

PENINSULA

RED Hill have started their 2019/2020 season with a bang after a thrilling win over Long Island. Long Island chose to bat first and set a tough target of 175 runs for Red Hill to chase down. Opener Nick Jewell impressed for Long Island with 59 runs before he was caught and bowled. In response, Red Hill looked shaky and found themselves struggling at 2/22. A stunning 97 run third wicket partnership got their run chase back on track, but after their middle order were removed the tail began to struggle. With just one wicket in hand, Red Hill managed to scrape themselves over the line with no time left to spare. Andrew Tweddle put in a big effort with ball in hand, posting figures of 4/26. Moorooduc had a tough time at home against Main Ridge, failing to defend their total of 143. Oliver McEnroe did most of the damage to Moorooduc, taking 5/11 from his eight overs. Main Ridge opener Michael Holmes got things started on the right foot, posting 75 runs. His side reached their target with six overs to spare.

PAGE 20

Frankston Times

Pines had a good weekend, defeating Somerville with 13 overs to spare thanks to a 71 run innings from opener Damien Lawrence. At Bruce Park it was happy days for Heatherhill, who defended their total of 158 against Pearcedale. Pearcedale were bowled out for just 90.

DISTRICT

NOTHING separated Rosebud and Crib Point at the end of a thrilling opening game of the season on Saturday. Crib Point batted first and set an attainable target of 126 runs to win. Patrick Nagel helped to restrict Crib Point’s total by bowling three maiden overs. In response Rosebud also struggled to score at a quick rate, and eventually found themselves running out of time. At the end of their 40 overs Rosebud ended up with 125 runs, tied with Crib Point. There was a more definitive result at Belvedere Reserve as Seaford Tigers started their campaign with a win over Carrum. Carrum batted first and scored 8/156. They struggled to deal with Mitch White, who took career best figures of 4/18. Seaford Tigers had to work hard to

get to their target, and were helped by a half century from opener Brayden Roscoe. The Tigers ended up wrapping up the win with two wickets and five balls to spare. Dromana had a bad day at home, bowled out for just 87 runs. Their Hastings opponents got the win with four wickets in hand and 12 overs left to play. Delacombe Park started the year well with a six wicket win over Mr Martha.

SUB DISTRICT

A TAIL end collapse has prevented Rye from chasing down Seaford in their opening game of the year. Seaford batted first and did well, setting Rye a tough target of 179 to chase down. Rye’s run chase started off well thanks to a big innings of 67 from opener Jordan Blades. Unfortunately for Rye, Blades didn’t get much support. Rye looked in a good position at 4/136, but soon collapsed. They ended up all out for 147, losing 6/11. At Peninsula Reserve, Frankston YCW secured a dominant victory over Skye to get their season off to a perfect start. The Stonecats opened the batting,

and set an impressive total of 217. Skye had a terrible time trying to chase down YCW, and ended up all out for just 70 runs. Stonecats bowler Stuart Plunkett posted figures of 3/12 and Neil Barfuss took 4/21. Carrum Downs also scored a big win, as they destroyed Ballam Park. Opener Nathan Harford played an exquisite innings for Carrum Downs, carrying his bat with a score of 140 not out. Harford’s century helped Carrum Downs post a huge total of 232. Ballam Park offered nothing in return, and were bowled out for just 69. Boneo did things comfortably in front of their home crowd on Saturday, getting the better of Balnarring. Balnarring set a small total of 109 to chase down, which Boneo did with ease. Boneo’s openers flexed their muscle and helped their side claim an emphatic 10 wicket win. At Bunguyan Reserve, Tyabb were able to hold on to defend their total of 3/174 against Tootgarook. The Yabbies won by 54 runs.

PROVINCIAL

SORRENTO have secured a narrow win over Mornington to get their

2019/2020 season off to a good start. Making the big road trip down to Alexandra Park in Mornington, Sorrento chose to bat first and ended up making 9/152. Chad Harris top scored for the Sharks with a score of 61. Mornington started their chase badly and looked in huge trouble at 6/57. A strong late effort by their tail put them back in contention, but the task was too great. They ended up bowled out for 140, 13 runs short of victory. Langwarrin also had a good start to their campaign, securing a hard fought win over Peninsula OB. Travis Campbell’s score of 66 helped put Langwarrin in a good position to win. They set a target of 203 for Old Boys to chase. William Crowder’s innings of 69 was big for Peninsula OB, but after he was dismissed he got little help from his team mates. Peninsula Old Boys ended up bowled out for 175 runs. Baxter had a tough day at home in their season opener, falling 35 runs short of a win against Mt Eliza. Baden Powell’s season started well as they comfortably defended their total of 224 against Flinders. They ended up winning by 122 runs.

Pines, Doves in fight for Fisher SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie KEVIN “Squizzy” Taylor and Doug Hodgson are locked in a battle to win the services of well-respected technical director Stephen Fisher. They were joined in the contest to lure Fisher by Bentleigh Greens but this was always going to be between Pines and the Doves. Fisher’s son Dylan, a promising teenage player, is at the centre of a tug of war between Taylor and Hodgson who reasoned that the winner would also secure the services of his father, who recently stepped down as Langwarrin TD. Taylor is senior coach at Frankston Pines and Hodgson is the new under18s coach at recently promoted NPL club Doveton. Taylor gave the youngster his first chance at NPL under-20 level in 2018 and Hodgson coached him this year in the Langwarrin under-16s. “Dylan could stay at Langwarrin but that’s unlikely,” Fisher said. “It will probably be either Doveton or Pines which gives me and my son the opportunity to work with people we both like and respect.” Fisher’s departure from Langwarrin as its inaugural NPL technical director had been announced before the end of the season. He wanted to stay at Langy as assistant to Hodgson believing that they would work together with the under18s but that possibility vanished when Langy and Hodgson parted company. The jewel in Langy’s NPL underage program was its championshipwinning under-15s but once its coach Donn Delaney left the club to pursue an interest in senior coaching that squad was under threat of being decimated by departures. “Donn wanted to get involved in senior football and I think his decision (to leave) is a good one,” Fisher said. “A lot of the boys in the under-15s had been working with him since the under-8s at Strikers so the journey was pretty much done. “A lot of those boys want to challenge themselves and play 18s NPL and I expect plenty of NPL teams will attempt to lure them.” Some may end up switching to Strikers who now have a junior NPL licence and will field under-13s, 14s, 15s and under-16s next season. Strikers also recently announced a junior NPL fee that took rival clubs by surprise and Fisher expects that to have a major impact. “The fee that Strikers are offering

Coaching changes: Stephen Fisher (left) and Donn Delaney are expected to join new clubs shortly.

is appealing and looking at what they are giving people for half the price will definitely have an effect. “But whether that fee is sustainable is another matter. “Every team they field costs them $5000 to Football Victoria before they even kick a ball so you are up for around $350 a player before you start talking about other costs.” Sustainability is a recurring theme with Fisher when he discusses the NPL. “It’s turned into an arms race and Langwarrin is a case in point. “Dylan Kilner is the only player in the senior squad to have come through the club’s junior ranks and not having kids coming in is a serious problem. “Your budget just keeps going up and that’s not sustainable. “You have to ask the question: Are we dealing with what we’ve got and improving them to a level that meets our needs or do we keep throwing money at expensive players and say ‘go out there and play’? “I have so much admiration for (NPL2 champions) Eastern Lions and what they achieved this year. “They are a great example of what can be done with a very small budget against teams like Bulleen who spend massive money to try and win the league.

Sudoku and crossword solutions

“I think what Lions have done is as good an effort as we’ve seen in a long, long time.” Langwarrin’s budget is believed to be double that of Eastern Lions but a key to Lions’ success is home-grown talent with six players in its senior squad coming through the club’s junior program. “In Langwarrin’s defence Eastern Lions have had four years’ head start with their NPL junior program and I’m hopeful that in a few years’ time we will see those sort of numbers of Langwarrin juniors in the senior squad.” Fisher has a firm view on the structure of the junior NPL system and was stunned in August when FV announced that 12 new junior licences had been granted bringing the number of clubs competing in the junior NPL to 48. “It’s ridiculous. They went and reviewed something as if it was broken. It wasn’t. “We’ve now got 48 clubs which is great and I’m really glad we’ve picked up the 600 elite kids we missed last time we issued licences,” Fisher said tongue-in-cheek. “Seriously it’s far too many clubs and I have no confidence in this model. “It’s fundamentally flawed and from the outside looking in it looks simply like revenue raising. “All they’ve done is to dilute the

product.” Wherever Fisher ends up next season he’ll carry an impressive CV with glowing references from an NPL career that has taken him from Springvale White Eagles to Dandenong City then Lawton Park. And he has firsthand knowledge of what it takes to succeed as a technical director. “The most important thing is to be honest because you are going to have to tell people (mainly parents) what they don’t want to hear so you have to be strong in your convictions. “You also need a really good team around you and you have to clearly define what you want to achieve and set realistic targets. “And remember that people are paying a lot of money to your club and they want to see something for their outlay. “You need to give them improvement (in their child) and if you spend all your time in the complaints department then your coaches will be distracted and your whole set-up will fall down.” Meanwhile the man he could end up working alongside next season returned on the weekend from a successful tour of England with Langwarrin’s under-16s. Hodgson and his youngsters opened their tour in style defeating West Bromwich Albion 10-0 with goals from

Keegan Myatt (4), Sam Maggs (2), Logan Crouch (2), Tom Duckett and Brodie McMinimee. They prevailed in another goalfest against Sheffield United winning 5-4 with goals from Allen Dzemidzic (2), Maggs (2) and Myatt then followed up with a 4-2 victory over Leicester City with Brodie Jones, Maggs, Duckett and Owen Murphy the scorers. Langy then twice came from behind to defeat Nottingham Forest 5-3 in the next match with a Crouch hat-trick and goals from Maggs and Duckett. The only loss Langy suffered was a 5-1 defeat by Coventry City (with Myatt scoring). Another Crouch hat-trick, another Myatt goal and an own goal resulted in a 5-5 draw with Warwick Academy in the final tour match. In other news Mornington has finalised its coaching appointments for its inaugural NPL junior season. Adam Jamieson will combine his role as senior coach with head coach of the under-13s. Mitchell Ball will be in charge of the under-14s. Ball has a C licence and has worked in the NPL junior area with Bulleen and Langwarrin and was assistant coach of Mornington’s reserves last season. The under-15s will be under the guidance of Jim Constantinou who has worked with the club’s community juniors for the past five seasons. He has a C licence and plans to complete his B licence next year. Constantinou worked with the under14s this year winning the league and finishing runner-up in the state final. Kyriakos Matziartis will take charge of the under-16s and he holds a B licence. He has coached at NPL junior level with Dandenong Thunder and Box Hill United. In State 2 news Peninsula Strikers look set to finalise their senior and reserves coaching appointments by the end of the week. Paul Williams and Donn Delaney are expected to be among the appointments. In State 3 news Frankston Pines has reappointed Paulo Pinheiro as reserves coach. “We are delighted to retain Paulo for the upcoming season,” club president Lee Davies said. “After a difficult start (last season) Paulo assembled an exciting, talented young squad that put together a great run of games in the second half of the season and we are confident he will continue to develop the next generation of Frankston Pines senior players.”

Footballers return from Japan as winners Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au UNDER 12s players at Langwarrin Soccer Club have returned from a competition in Japan as winners. In September last year, the side qualified for the Tomsan Cup tournament in Japan by winning a national seven on seven competition. The cup is an eight vs eight tournament competed over two days. The side arrived in Japan and got straight to work with 10 practice games in just three days. The cup kicked off on 22 September, with Langwarrin talking out a win in their first game 1-0. They went on to lose their next game 1-0 and draw their next 1-1. The win and draw qualified the side for the “tier three” finals of the cup, which was played on the second day. Langwarrin started the day with a 1-1 draw, and improved from there. They won their next game 1-0 and smashed their opponents after that 4-0. After finishing equal on top of the group, a penalty shootout was held to decide the winners. Langwarrin held their nerve to claim a 3-2 win on penalties and lift the trophy at the end of the day. The club presented a pennant to each of the sides they played during the tournament. The side has since returned home and celebrated their win.

Winners: Langwarrin players (in purple) Harper, Jett, Troy, Jackson, Jamie, Nathan, Logan, Jasper, Will, and goalkeeper James Serato with their opponents at the Tomsan Cup in Japan last month. Picture: Supplied

Freedman sends Derby Warning HORSE RACING

By Ben Triandafillou THE Anthony Freedman stable has unveiled a potential Victorian Derby candidate after the dominant display of Warning at Flemington on Saturday 5 October. Having drawn a good gate in the Listed Super Impose Stakes (1800m), Freedman passed up on taking the three-year-old son of Declaration of War to an 1850m maiden race at Kyneton on the Friday and instead lined up in the key lead-up race towards the Derby. The decision paid dividends for the Pinecliff, Mt Eliza-based trainer as the maiden galloper raced clear in the straight to score a comfortable two length victory over the Lindsay Park pair, Independent Road and Huntly Castle. Freedman said the addition of blinkers and the selection of Irish jockey, Martin Harley, made a massive difference. “We’ve always had a good opinion of him,” Freedman said. “He was disappointing the other day at Sale, but he didn’t have his blinkers on. They went on today, we knew he would improve with them as he’s a laid-back sort of horse and it panned out very well for him. Martin gave him a good ride.” Based on his breeding, Freedman is confident that Warning will run out a strong 2500m if he ends up heading towards the Derby in November. “He’ll front up again in a couple of weeks and we’ll see if we’re still in the

run for the Derby and how we’re going before heading in that direction,” Freedman said. The victory was made that little bit sweeter with the race being named

after the multiple Group One winner Super Impose - a sensational galloper that was a star for the Freedman stable in the early 1990s. “He got us going so we owe him a

lot and I’m glad he’s got a good race named after him because for a long time he either didn’t have a race or it was a very low level race so I’m glad he’s got this now,” Freedman said.
