Animal rescuers fee free Neil Walker KIND-HEARTED rescuers who adopt pets from Frankston pounds will no longer pay registration fees after councillors decided to “reward love with love” by dropping the fees. North-West Ward councillor Kris Bolam’s notice of motion was unani-

mously supported by fellow councillors at council’s latest 2 July public meeting. Council officers crunched the numbers and advised council would be forfeiting about $30,000 annually in registration fees. Cr Bolam believed the financial trade off is worthwhile. “It’s another way of saying thank you to people who are doing the right thing

and adopting animals,” Cr Bolam said at the meeting. “We should be rewarding love with love and that’s what we’re doing here.” Council saw 185 animals adopted from the Lost Dogs home over the past year. Abandoned animals cost ratepayers about $940,000 each year including capture and housing costs.

Councillors hoped the scrapping of registration fees for people who adopt animals instead of buying them elsewhere will lead to a rise in pet adoptions. “Anything that encourages pet purchases from the pound is a good thing,” Cr Glenn Aitken said. Councillors believed ratepayers will welcome the move to encourage pet

adoption from pounds. “Dogs bring a lot of happiness to many people in our municipality and I think we’re doing something that will be very well received by residents in our community,” Cr Steve Toms said. Pet shops across Victoria were banned from selling puppies, kittens, cats and dogs from “puppy farms” from 2 July this year.

Business chamber ‘goes bust’ shock

New deputy elected FRANKSTON has a new deputy mayor. North-East Ward councillor Michael O’Reilly was elected to the role at council’s latest public council meeting on 2 July. A split 5-3 vote of councillors saw Cr O’Reilly, first elected to council in 2012, become deputy mayor in predecessor Cr Lillian O’Connor’s absence on approved personal leave “for several months”. Crs Kris Bolam, Brian Cunial, Sandra Mayer, O’Reilly and the mayor Cr Colin Hampton voted for Cr O’Reilly to be deputy mayor. South Ward councillor Steve Toms, deputy mayor last year, also put his hand up for the deputy mayorship last week. Crs Glenn Aitken, Quinn McCormack and Toms voted for Cr Toms. “As a key marginal seat, Frankston City has an opportunity to make all sides of politics take notice of issues and projects which are important to our whole community ahead of the state election,” Cr O’Reilly said in a statement after the meeting. The deputy mayor role does not see the incumbent receive any additional remuneration on top of an annual $29,630 allowance plus expenses. The mayor of the day is paid $94,641 over a 12-month term. The deputy mayor is expected to attend functions and meetings the mayor is unable to attend and to chair public council meetings in the mayor’s absence. Cr Hampton thanked Cr O’Reilly for accepting the role. Neil Walker

Neil Walker THE members of a major business chamber group in Frankston will vote later this month on putting the organisation into voluntary administration. The Frankston Business Network (FBN), also known as the Greater Frankston Business Chamber, wrote to its members on Thursday (5 July) to advise a special meeting vote will be held on Thursday 26 July. “While no commitment has been made at this stage, Frankston City Council has indicated they may explore options for supporting a business entity in lieu of FBN in 2019,” FBN president Kath Ferry said in an email to members. The business chamber representing many businesses throughout the Frankston region was first established in 1955. Frankston mayor Cr Colin Hampton said council is aware of the FBN’s plight. “Members of council recently met with representatives of the Frankston Business Network who provided an update about their current financial situation, including the possibility that they may go into voluntary insolvency,” he said in a statement. “We are disappointed with this outcome and recognise the need for a business network. Council sup-

ports small business through a number of channels, including the facilitation of small business workshops and small business grants program.” The mayor said any decision on financial support for a business chamber will need to be agreed by councillors. Ms Ferry was contacted for comment but did not respond before publication deadline. The FBN email sent to members stated staff would end employment with the chamber on Wednesday 11 July “and all scheduled events and networking activities will be cancelled”.

Flushed away

TOILETS past their use-by date are being replaced across the Frankston area as part of council’s Public Toilet Action Plan. Frankston mayor Cr Colin Hampton said some old bluestone toilet blocks no longer suit the needs of visitors. “The new accessible toilet facilities will complement the natural coastal area with a smaller environmental footprint and will meet the needs of all users,” he said. “While there has been some talk of the bluestone facilities being of heritage value and we appreciate their enduring appearance along the foreshore, there are no such planning controls or heritage overlays in place.” See

Axed boulevard trees ‘unhealthy’ Neil Walker FRANKSTON Council has come under fire over the sudden axing of trees on Cranbourne-Frankston Road. Readers have contacted The Times expressing alarm about “a desolate bomb site” left in the wake of trees being removed on CranbourneFrankston Road between Fletcher Road and Moorooduc Highway. Council says more than 150 trees will replace the previous trees as part of a boulevard planting project and the mayor Cr Colin Hampton said an arborist report found many of the axed trees were “in poor health and no long-

er providing adequate amenity”. “Two species of trees have been selected for planting, including the iconic native Norfolk Island Pine along the central median to complement our city centre pines, including Frankston City’s favourite century-old Christmas Tree located outside the Civic Centre,” Cr Hampton said in a statement.  “Stunning Crepe Myrtles which produce a gorgeous white flower in summer will also be planted along nature strips. These grow to a reasonably low height, well below power line level and will add continuity to the white flowering Ti-tree  and Melaleuca further up Cranbourne-Frankston Road.” The mayor said VicRoads, who

owns the land, supports the boulevard works, expected to be finished this month. “This section of CranbourneFrankston Road is a major city gateway, and the new boulevard trees will provide a warm welcome to visitors and become an asset the community can be proud of.” Council advised the next stage of the works will see planting between Moorooduc Highway and McClelland Drive. Councillors last month slammed the state government’s Level Crossing Removal Authority (LXRA) for the removal of vegetation around Seaford’s RF Miles Reserve as part of the Seaford Road level crossing removal.

Access for all celebrated IMPROVED disability access across the Frankston region was celebrated last week when Frankston Council’s Disability and Access Inclusion Committee (DAIC) marked its 30th anniversary. The mayor Cr Colin Hampton thanked the committee, made up of residents with experience of disability and sector professionals, for significant improvements in disability access since its formation in July 1988. The DAIC has contributed to several projects including: n The design and functionality of the construction at the Peninsula Aquatic and Leisure Centre (PARC) n The beach accessible wheelchair, at the Frankston Visitor Information Centre n The Wheelie Ramble n Additional accessible parking bays in the City centre n The Wells and Beach Street taxi drop-off zones

n Construction of the accessible boardwalk on the waterfront and a beach access ramp at the Frankston Yacht Club building n The Young Street Improvement Project n Changing Places toilet advocacy “More recently we’ve seen a number of changes introduced to create a more accessible and inclusive waterfront, including improving access to the playground and barbecue,” Cr Hampton said. Committee veteran Henryk Kay, a member for 30 years, commended the use of the “Universal Design” approach to developing projects within Frankston City. He said projects like PARC are an example of building “for all”. “We should all embrace change when the end goal is a net benefit for our city. Sometimes extra work behind the scenes has to occur to achieve that goal,” Mr Kay said.

Aftermath: Firefighters at Seaview Road home where girl rescued by neighbour. Picture: Gary Sissons

Mr Raynor said he used a “hip and shoulder” to “knock the front door in” to rescue the girl upstairs. He carried the girl out of the house and the fire brigade arrived “seconds” after he got out of the home “It was just instinct,” Mr Raynor said. “I’m sure most of us would do it.” The girl’s grandmother was rescued by firefighters and both she and the girl were taken to hospital. Frankston CFA senior station officer Doug Broom praised Mr Raynor’s actions before firefighters arrived.

Furniture thief nabbed Guitar returned AN unsanctioned removalist who stole furniture from two homes for sale in Seaford over the past two months (“‘Everything’ goes”, The Times 5/7/18) has been arrested by police. Frankston Detective Senior Constable Belinda Rampal said the furniture was recovered and a 38-year-old Seaford man will face court in September charged with burglaries and theft. The man fitted out his own residence with more than $20,000 worth of stolen furniture including two beds, a four-seater couch, tables, linen, cushions, donnas, plants and a dishwasher. He tied large items to the roof of a Holden Commodore and made several repeat visits to homes for sale in Kirkwood Avenue and Raymond Road between April and 19 June to allegedly steal the furniture. “The owners were very happy to get their furniture back,” Detective Senior Constable Rampal said. When police searched the man’s property they also found a small hydroponic kit used to grow cannabis so the Seaford man will also face a charge of cultivating cannabis when he fronts court.

A STOLEN guitar was returned to its rightful owner thanks to a tip-off from a shop owner. Police said a Frankston Local Cash Sales manager called the Frankston Crime Investigation Unit after “a suspicious male” tried to sell an expensive guitar in the store. The man left the store before police arrived but the guitar was recovered. It had been stolen from a car parked at Langwarrin’s Elisabeth Murdoch College on 30 June before a gig by 18-year-old Amber Walker. Police have identified the man who tried to sell the guitar the same day it was stolen.

A QUICK acting neighbour has been hailed a hero after rescuing a 12-year-old girl from a home ablaze in Frankston South’s Seaview Road at about 11pm on Wednesday night (4 July). Chris Raynor ran to the aid of the trapped girl in a neighbour’s home after being awoken by his daughter who told him she heard screaming at the property. Mr Raynor told radio station 3AW he “was glad” the girl recovered from the ordeal. “I didn’t get to think too much about it because I’d just woken up but I ran into the house and luckily found the girl in the house and brought her out,” he said.

Recently, I needed an electrician. It was impossible to put a globe into the ancient batten above my stove. I rang a few numbers which I found on the internet. “We don’t service that area anymore.” I was getting stressed. When I found a well organised operation which promised same day service. I simply said “yes”. I was delighted. However, I paid for it: $290 for two light battens to be screwed into my kitchen ceiling. I was stunned. I was also given an unsolicited quote for a new power board - it was more than $3000. Be warned. Prompt service can be very expensive. As an age pensioner (that was three days income) I’d be interested to know if there’s an ombudsman for old people who suspect they’ve been ripped off. It would be wonderful to be reimbursed some of that money. Evelyn Lawson, Karingal

Rally for refugees


An independent voice for the community

We are the only locally owned and operated community newspaper in Frankston City and on the Mornington Peninsula. We are dedicated to the belief that a strong community newspaper is essential to a strong community. We exist to serve residents, community groups and businesses and ask for their support in return.

What a great letter from Ann Renkin (“Answer to refugees” 25/6/18). I would like readers to come to the rally at 2pm on 21 July outside the State Library Victoria in Swanston Street, Melbourne in protest against the incarceration of the 137 children on Nauru. How can our politicians who have children or grandchildren growing up here condemn these to a life of isolation? It is monstrous - something akin to the way the Gestapo operated during the World War II. Do Australians want to be remembered in this way in the future - a country that isolated refugees on islands and left them without hope or a future?

Disaster in the making North bound traffic is a disaster waiting to happen at the Young Street, Frankston shopping precinct. I have seen many near misses. It is much too narrow without any adequate speed signage and it is only a matter of time before there is a serious accident. Frankston Council and VicRoads will be held accountable. Young Street may conform to current regulation standards, but it is still extremely dangerous. Where negligence is proven, those to blame can do gaol time. Make Frankston safe again. Vic Langsam, Frankston

Sensible approach All praise to the Mornington Peninsula Shire for its decision (this time) to re-advertise the CEO’s position as, of course, it should. It doesn’t matter how good the president of the Nepean

Ratepayers Association thinks Carl Cowie is in the job. It is very bad policy to rubber stamp anyone in the same position time after time, whether it is Mr Cowie or anyone else. Perhaps Colin Watson has a bias in the opposite direction (“Reappoint CEO” Letters 26/6/18)? What I would like to know is, what does the CEO precisely do to justify earning $400,000 a year? Does he actually work eight hours a day five days a week? I doubt it, but even if he did, no one is worth that amount of money. How did such an excessive payment come to be the norm, for the CEO, together with multiple perks for councillors? Wasn’t being a councillor once a prestige position for the privilege of serving the community? Bring back common sense. Gwen Thomas, Somerville

New rules winning ‘party house’ wars Stephen Taylor A SPATE of wild parties in Melbourne suburbs has shone highlighted the shotcomings of short-term “party” house rentals – an issue once rampant on the Mornington Peninsula. In Carnegie last month a $1 million house was overrun and trashed by youths and, on 1 July, in another party gone-wrong, the walls and windows of a $3.5 million Hawthorn East house were smashed. These incidents followed damage estimated in the hundreds of thousands of dollars to so-called party houses in Footscray, North Melbourne, Malvern East, Werribee and Altona. Houses were overrun, windows and doors kicked in and neighbours left fuming. Their sense of impotence was compounded when police, at one house, refused to enter a property being vandalised over safety concerns and leasing anomalies. In the recent disasters, young women reportedly used false names and documents to rent Air BnB properties online and, to allay owners’ concerns, claimed to be part of family groups with young children needing cots. Mornington Peninsula mayor Cr Bryan Payne said shire local laws officers had not received any complaints about party houses this term break – the first school holidays since the Short Stay Rental Accommodation regulations

were introduced in April. This confirmed his view that the tougher bylaws – the first of their kind in Victoria – were justified. The main feature is a registration system that identifies owners of properties, or their agents, who must respond to complaints by neighbours within two hours. A code of conduct signed by landlords gives the shire control over rowdy drinking sessions, abusive guests, thumping music late into the night, car parking congestion and inadequate rubbish disposal. Other rules include banning guests from using swimming pools, spas, outdoor decking and balconies from 10pm to 8am, and not allowing visitors between those times. The shire may cancel a property’s registration after it receives three or more “substantiated” complaints about tenants’ activities from nearby residents over 12 months, or it receives a substantiated complaint “of such severity that immediate cancellation is warranted”. Further fines can be issued for each day offences continue after a court has found an offence has been committed. Owners’ hip pockets could be hit with up to $3100 in fines for breaches. Cr Payne said the tougher rules should be the responsibility of the state government. “That’s the reason we had to bring them in,” he said. “We were powerless … we’d be getting complaints and not be able to do anything about them.”

Historical space for out there images THE Mornington Peninsula Astronomical Society is bringing its digital images of the universe to the walls of the historic Coolart Homestead, Somers. The display of members’ photos will feature a selection of all aspects of astrophotography including wide field shots of the Milky Way, eclipses, comets, views of the sun through

solar filters, shots of the moon and planets, nebulae and galaxies seen through telescopes and auroras. Also on display will be various items of astronomical paraphernalia. Science in the Park will be held on Sunday 12 August as part of Science Week and astronomical society members will be on hand to talk to visitors about the exhibition and the

club’s activities. There will be scientific demonstrations on show in the park grounds as well as free science activities for all ages. Coolart Homestead is in Lord Somers Road, Somers (Melway 193 J9) and the exhibition runs 16 July to 12 August. Details:

Man rescued from burning house Stephen Taylor AN off-duty policeman dragged a Somerville resident from his burning home, probably saving his life, on the afternoon of Friday 29 June. Senior Constable Darren Prestney, formerly of Mornington police and now at Dandenong Sexual Offences Unit, was walking his dog in Rex Court about 3.40pm when he saw smoke coming from the roof. Running to the front door he peered inside and heard a faint call for help. A man in his 60s was lying in the hallway after falling from his wheelchair as he attempted to crawl to safety from the kitchen. He had earlier fallen asleep

in front of the stove while cooking and been overcome by smoke when parts of the kitchen caught fire. Senior Constable Prestney kicked in the front door and rushed inside to pull the man out. The brick veneer house was well alight and the interior filled with flames and smoke. Firefighter Geoff Gommers, of Somerville CFA, said the house was “40 per cent involved” when crews rushed to the scene 10 minutes later. Power lines were sparking and the entire front of the house was ablaze. The fire took 45 minutes to bring under control and another two hours to fully extinguish. CFA crews managed to save two boats and a shed, as well as jewellery, mementoes, and two wheelchairs from inside the house. One electric mobility

scooter was lost. Firefighter Gommers said he was recommending Senior Constable Prestney for a bravery award. This was confirmed by Somerville CFA Captain David O’Brien who said the policeman had “made a really good effort”. “I’ve just completed the paperwork for the award and sent it to district headquarters and they will make the

recommendation.” Hastings Senior Sergeant Shane Pola also commended the policeman’s efforts in saving the man’s life. “He did very well,” he said. “He was in the right place at the right time to help.” A fire investigator had been requested to examine the scene next morning. CFA stations launched a residential fire safety campaign on Wednesday 20 June to raise awareness of fire safety around the home in colder months. Across Victoria, CFA crews attended 467 preventable house fires last winter – up 15 per cent on other seasons. Unattended cooking is the single biggest cause of fire in the home throughout the year, with heating-related fires up over winter. CFA areas recorded 121 chim-

ney fires and 29 fires related to woodfuelled heating. Preventable fires also started when clothes were left to dry too close to the heat source, in clothes dryers, and from candles. So far this season, CFA fire investigators have attended fires caused by candles left unattended close to furniture, cooking left unattended, embers from open fireplaces falling onto carpet, and portable heaters left too close to towels. CFA Chief Officer Steve Warrington warned that there was no “off-season” when it comes to fires. “Winter is a time where we’re spending more time inside keeping warm by enjoying an open fire and a home-cooked meal or cranking up the heater,” he said.

Exploring the effects of “school transition on student wellbeing” formed the basis of a talk given by Toorak College, Mt Eliza principal, Kristy Kendall, to 750 educators from 22 countries in the United States. Mrs Kendall said it had been an honour to be one of the few Australians invited to speak at the Global Forum on Girls’ Education in Washington DC. “I passionately believe in girls' education and the power of building resilience, self-esteem and self-confidence in the next generation of leaders,” Mrs Kendall said on her return. Her presentation to the forum “explored the social, emotional, cognitive and moral developmental periods of girls and how disruption in the form of school transition can have detrimental effects on a student’s mental health and academic performance”. “We know that changing schools is harder when girls have low selfesteem and when they are in the early stages of establishing their own identity. “Throughout my presentation, I encouraged the audience to put the developmental milestones of their students at the heart of the decisions they make. This includes everything from entry points, transition processes, how and what they teach, and how they build capacity in the minds of young girls.” Since becoming the 16th principal of Toorak College at the beginning of 2016, Mrs Kendall says she has made it her “mission to ensure that at the

centre of every consideration, discussion and initiative are the needs of her students”. “Every day I strive to provide my students with the best possible education, to expose them to a range of challenges and opportunities and to inspire

them to aim high and dream big. We don’t believe in a one-size fits all transition plan and encourage our students and families to join us when it is right for them.” Mrs Kendall will speak at Toorak College’s next open day on Wednesday 8 August. Keith Platt

IN BUSINESS Bayside Shoes I never expected to be running a business when I started at the young age of 15 working in an accountant’s office, learning how to manage trust accounts and fill in tax forms. Here I am over 50 years later, as the owner of Bayside Shoes that I have been managing for the past 30 years. Combining a young family of four children, coaching while playing A Grade basketball and Netball (later playing Masters) and at one stage running two stores, it is difficult to understand how I found the time. I have lived and worked in the Seaford/ Frankston area for most of this time and seen significant positive changes in the life style environment that has flowed through to

the local community. During the 1980’s we sold low cost, high volume footwear, while today we offer a large range of quality leather shoes and boots to suit children, ladies and men for work, school, play or that special occasion like a wedding. Bayside Shoes also works with the local podiatrists to offer a “ shoe solution” for difficult foot problems whether you are a size 5 or size 17 in shoe size.

SHANNON Smit and Nadia Hughes are not your average pen-pushing accounting nerds. As accountants and financial advisors, business owners and property developers, they each understand the challenges business owners face. Not to mention, both of these inspiring and driven women have young families of their own, each juggling their roles of mother and business owner beautifully. After nearly 8 years abroad working at some of the world’s leading accounting firms, and following the birth of her second child, a newfound focus quickly led Shannon to identify a crucial gap in the accounting market for small to medium

businesses: SMART Business Solutions, a boutique accounting firm providing high-end tax and accounting expertise to small to medium size enterprises. Originally working as a journalist in Russia and migrating to Australia, Nadia completed her university degree with flying colours. Her professional development continued with networking events, which is where the duo eventually met. Nadia soon discovered Shannon’s shared passion for technical excellence and a diverse and progressive workplace, which is exactly what they set out to create. A partnership was formed, and the rest, as they say, is history.

MID-CENTURY HEAVEN IN BLAIRGOWRIE THEY say that a true classic never goes out of style and this certainly applies to this beautiful mid 20th century modernist beach house. “Four Winds� is a uniquely original home, built in about 1959, that has since been respectfully upgraded to retain its charming original architecture, whilst still providing all of the modern day comforts. The home is immaculately presented and set on a picturesque 1100 square metre block dotted with quaint patio areas overlooking the established trees. Four living areas include a fabulous open plan zone incorporating a kitchen with meals area, and a spacious family room that opens to a private patio. The recently renovated kitchen features an integrated Miele dishwasher, and a fridge and second dishwasher from Leibhher. A formal lounge embraces the northerly aspect with large windows capturing the sun and at the same time affording a gorgeous view of the surrounding gardens, whilst a very cool man cave has polished concrete floors and provides ultimate privacy, storage and escapism for everyone in the family. Three bedrooms include the huge master bedroom with ensuite and a wall of wardrobes with remaining bedrooms sharing the main bathroom. This home really is for the purchaser that is after something undeniably different and if the glass etched doors displaying palm trees or the beautiful bluestone fire place or the luscious lime-wash floorboards or the crazy pave patios where you can enjoy a sundowner or two do not utterly enchant you, the clincher has to be the magnificent iron gates that proudly stand guard at the front of the property.

The Rev John Leaver - minister, chaplain, education pioneer and family man

A lifetime of service: Reverend Leaver (left) and pictured with wife Wendy (above).


John Aylmer Leaver AO RFD ED 1930-2018 School chaplain By Peter McCullough THE Reverend John Aylmer Leaver AO RFD ED died on 15 May at the age of 87. It was estimated that more than 900 attended the memorial service which was held at The Ansett Hall, Peninsula Grammar, on 24 May. Best known as the chaplain at Peninsula Grammar, a position he held for 24 years, the Rev Leaver also played a key role in the setting up of a number of Christian schools and he was a long-time chaplain in the Army Reserve. In 2000 he was awarded the AO for his services to education and his work in the community. Stuart Johnston, principal of Peninsula Grammar, gave the welcoming address and eulogies were given by The Right Reverend Dr Paul Barker, Bishop of the Jumbunna Region, the Anglican Diocese of Melbourne; Brigadier Doug Perry OAM RFD ED ; and Stephen Higgs, executive general manager of Victorian Ecumenical System of Schools. The homily was given by the Rev Roger Rich. Family tributes were provided by daughter Susan Collopy and grandson Charlie Collopy. This obituary is based on the addresses given by the various speakers. Studies and Marriage John Leaver was born on 29 August, 1930 to Esmond and Dorothy Leaver. At the time John’s father was the Anglican priest at Myrtleford and the childhood of John and his two siblings (David and Laurel) was spent moving around the Diocese of Wangaratta. This included time in Wodonga, Violet Town, Alexandra and then Seymour; many hours were spent in local swimming pools and consequently John became a strong swimmer. He was also a member of junior cricket and football teams.


Frankston Times 9 July 2018

In 1941 John became a boarder at Ivanhoe Grammar School. He embraced all that Ivanhoe had to offer but still enjoyed his school holidays: swimming in the Goulburn River at Seymour, attending the local movie theatre on Friday nights, and reading book after book. Even books on the banned list were sought out. In his final year at Ivanhoe John was a school prefect, captain of the boarding house, the debating team and tennis team as well as librarian and editor of the school magazine. On matriculating he became an active member of the Old Ivanhoe Grammarians, remaining true to their school motto: Faithful even unto Death. John’s first job was with the Commonwealth Oil Refinery as a junior clerk, then as an assistant librarian at the University of Melbourne (where books were plentiful), and then the Royal Insurance Company as an insurance clerk. After much soul searching, John enrolled for theological studies. In 1956 the Rev John Leaver took up his first appointment at St Peter’s, Murrumbeena; it was an active parish with Sunday school, youth groups and a tennis club. The church’s annual revue was being directed by a talented young teacher from Korowa Girls Grammar School, Wendy Tonks. With the assistance of his brother’s yellow MG , John started courting Miss Tonks which led to their marriage on 5 February, 1960. Wherever they went, whether it was Lancefield, Seymour, Maryborough or Mt Eliza they worked as a team with Wendy’s music complementing John’s ministry as parish priest and chaplain. The “John and Wendy show” was always a time of caring and sharing, and support for all ages and all backgrounds. Christian Education It was during John’s time at Maryborough that he started his incredible contribution to education. In 1972 the local Catholic priest got in touch with him: could he encourage Anglicans

to send their children to St Joseph’s Secondary College to avoid its impending closure? John realised that if all churches supported a ecumenical school, its future would be secure. As a result Highview College was established in 1974. This led to Braemar College in Mt Macedon in 1975, Bayview College in Portland in 1977 which grew from the struggling Loreto convent school, followed by Newhaven College on Phillip Island, Beaconhills College (Pakenham), Overnewton College (Keilor), Christian College (Geelong), Casey Grammar (Cranbourne), Hume Anglican Grammar (Craigieburn), Trinity Albury, Trinity Wodonga, Cathedral College (Wangaratta), Moama Anglican Grammar, and, more recently, Balcombe Grammar, Mt Martha. All were initiated or assisted by the Rev John Leaver. John initially formed the Association of Ecumenical Schools then, in 1996, the Victorian Ecumenical System of Schools with himself as executive officer. Today there are 14 schools which he had a hand in founding and another 12 members of VESS which have benefited from the system. This is a phenomenal record of benefit to young people, and the advancement of Christian education. Peninsula Grammar School Meanwhile, in the Easter of 1974, John, Wendy and their two daughters (Jane and Susan) arrived on the Mornington Peninsula as John had accepted the role of chaplain to both Toorak College and The Peninsula School (as it was then known). With the support of the two school he also became the founding priest of the Parish of Mt. Eliza North. It was in this role that John’s selflessness became widely known. He worked tirelessly to unite the community in a shared vision of faith and hope. Worship was held in The Ansett Hall and so began the first school-based parish in Australia. In all of these activities he was ably supported by Wendy; they led by example, with grace and dignity, and

shared an unwavering belief in their faith. As the school chaplain John involved himself in a wide range of activities from worship services and impassioned addresses at assemblies to conducting the “Holy Donut” stall at the school fete. During his 24 years as chaplain he touched the hearts of so many young people and their families and maintained a close connection with many of them after his retirement. When one of the speakers at the service asked for a show of hands of those who had been baptised or married by John, at least 400 responded; in some instances both hands were raised. John Leaver’s standing at Peninsula Grammar was summed up by Stuart Johnson: “He was a loyal friend, a role model, an entrepreneur, a teacher, a confidant, an adviser and a colleague. His memory will live on through the brightness that he brought to our community, the selflessness of his giving to others, and the time that he spent ensuring that all of us, here today, could unite and share our faith, our hope, our love together.” In 2000 the Rev John Leaver was awarded the AO for his services to education and his work in the community. But he still worked tirelessly for those causes in which he believed. One of his last projects was his involvement in the establishment of the Abacus Learning Centre in Hastings; a school for children with autism spectrum disorder on the peninsula. Working with this group of parents who had a vision to enable their children to reach their fullest potential, and to observe the development of the children in the program, would be one of John Leaver’s most rewarding contributions. Army Reserve. John Leaver enlisted in the Army Reserve as a chaplain in July 1959, and retired after 26 years service with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. At the time of his enlistment he was the vicar at Seymour and consequently

his first posting was to Puckapunyal. For most of his service in the Army Reserve however, he was attached to 2nd Field Regiment, a reserve artillery unit. There he established a reputation for seeing that the hierarchy was made aware of any errors, shortcomings, or injustices and then ensuring that appropriate corrective action was taken. His success in this role led his fellow reservists to abandon the old expression “pulling strings” in favour of “pulling leavers”. Even in retirement John continued to minister and mentor his military colleagues in many ways and revelled in the ongoing social and ceremonial contact, from the Peninsula Grammar cadet unit to the full suite of formal and informal military functions, including the Anzac Day services at RSL Park. Family It would be remiss not to mention John Leaver’s devotion to his family. Their home was always happy and John and Wendy’s daughters, Jane and Susan, were taught the importance of generosity and kindness, friendship and love, respect and humility. There was also a need for determination and perseverance, as well as a thirst for knowledge and learning. His ability to read five books at the same time was quite incredible; to be able to retain the information was even more amazing. Guests would always be amused at the built-in book rack in the toilet; John’s explanation was “It’s the only room where I can get any peace”. The girls were encouraged in their chosen careers (teaching and pharmacy) and this support has been extended in more recent times to John’s grandchildren: Alex., Georgia, Emily and Charlie. The grandchildren have said: “We are more than fortunate and proud to have had the joy of having him in our lives as our Grandpa. We will miss him every day, but know he will be watching over us for the rest of our lives. We loved him so much.”

Oh me, Oh my, OBike By Stuart McCullough SO that’s it, then. After just a few short months, they’ve given up and shipped out. For good. And while their appearance seemed a truly mysterious thing, their exit from our fair city is not mysterious at all. We drove them to it. Which, given we’re talking about bicycles rather than cars, is perhaps the cruelest insult of them all. Having now broken their spirit, they decided to roll on to some less-hostile territory. So long, obikes. I first saw one when jogging. It was dark and I was pretty tired, and I’ll admit I was a little startled to see it. I simply didn’t understand why a yellow bicycle was standing on the side of the road as though someone had left it behind. It never occurred to me that it was on purpose. I jogged past hoping that the rightful owner might remember where it was he or she left it and that all would be right in the world. That, so I thought, was that. Until I saw another. It seemed so much more than mere coincidence. Or carelessness. It became clear to me that these yellow contraptions were a thing. A slightly confusing thing but a thing nevertheless. I assumed that this was some kind of broad-ranging art project, doubtless connected to some festival. But I was way off. They were, in fact, for riding. Apparently, you need an app and you scan something and then it’s unlocked. By which time you might as well have walked. The great attraction of the oBike was the fact that it was ‘dockless’ and could be left pretty much anywhere, which is


Frankston Times 9 July 2018

exactly what people did. It was as if we resented both the intrusion and their freedom and set about punishing them for it. OBikes were strewn across the country and abandoning one in the most obscure place possible became something of a national pastime. They were welded together, abandoned in trees and light

poles and thrown into the river en masse where they were left to rust in a watery grave. Frankly, we were cruel and we were mean. It begs the question: what was it about the oBike that made us so angry? Perhaps we fear change. Something new that challenges traditional ways of thinking can be difficult. Or maybe

it was the bike itself – would we have felt such antipathy if – for example – they’d used a brand of bike we all know and love, like a Malvern Star? Could it be that they were far too utilitarian for our tastes? Truth be told, the oBike was the cycling equivalent of a Trabant. You didn’t see packs of middle aged dudes in lycra riding along Beach Road on oBikes. I suspect the element of surprise kind of worked against them. They seemed to appear pretty much without warning or explanation and we resented the intrusion. The social contract had not been drafted, much less signed by all interested parties. They turned up without invitation and were treated as party crashers as a result. You can’t walk through a front door and then try to knock. You put people off that way. Our response was to treat it as an invasion of our turf and in a gang war, pretty much anything goes. It’s been ages since I’ve ridden a bike. As a kid, I evolved from a dragster through to a BMX without a second thought. Owning a bike is an essential piece of equipment that you have as a child. Along with a torch and a dressing gown, I couldn’t have imagined life without a bike back then. But for some reason, I haven’t ever owned a bike as an adult. That’s despite being middle aged and a perfect candidate for lycra – if, indeed, such a thing exists. The moment I could drive was the moment I left behind my bike. It’s still at my father’s place – he’s no doubt saving it just in case, some

twenty five years later, I should change my mind and decide that I really need to start riding a BMX again. It’s unlikely that I’ll feel overwhelmed by the need to perform jumps, bunny hops and monos anytime soon, but I’ll ask him to hang on to it. Just in case. I’m hoping he still has my torch and dressing gown. I miss them. After years not riding a bike, a ride on an oBike might have been the ideal way to get back into it. I’m not sure what was holding me back. Now it’s officially too late. I’ll never get the chance to cruise down to the milkbar and back or give anyone a dink. If dinking is still the done thing when it comes to bikes. (Come to think of it, when I see those large groups of riders on a Sunday morning, no one’s giving anybody a dink. It’s totally dinkless.) So farewell oBikes. Hopefully they’ll be collected up and released back into the wild where they can roam together across the open plains. Many years from now – once I’ve got my BMX back in working order – I’ll go for a long ride and see if I can spot a herd of them grazing together beside a river. Grazing beside a river would be a lot better than being thrown into one, that much is certain. Granted, they were a bit strange and were visual clutter of a kind, but I’m not sure why we know why we felt the need to punish them. Good luck to them. Long may they ride.

Somerville resident farewelled

Compiled by Brodie Cowburn THE news of Mrs George Gomm’s death, which took place at her residence last Sunday, was received with deep regret by a large circle of friends. Mrs Gomm was an old resident of Somerville and had been in failing health for some time. She was a valued worker of the local branch of the Lady Mayoress’ Patriotic League. She leaves a husband and two daughters to mourn her loss and our sympathy is extended to the bereaved family. The funeral took place at the Mornington Cemetery on Tuesday afternoon. Rev Rymer conducted the burial service. *** THE concert held in Frankston on Saturday evening last, in aid of the funds of the Langwarrin Military Training Camp, was undoubtedly one of the best concerts given in Frankston. The audience was a large one, and during the evening Mr Jolly announced that he had personally sold 102 tickets in Melbourne, which were not represented in the hall. The programme was a novel one to a Frankston audiences and every item was loudly applauded, encores being the order of the evening. The dancing of Miss Raie Langley was a treat in itself and the singing of Miss Rona Miller was splendid. The Langwarrin Orchestra played excellent music. Mr J. B. Jolly presided and in a neat speech introduced the Merry Eight Comedy Company, and welcomed them to Frankston.

In the course of his speech the chairman said that this company of talented young ladies had for a long period, with unfading energy and success, been creating pleasure for thousands who had extended patronage to them, and thereby swelling Red Cross, Repatriation and various patriotic funds. To date this company have netted £700. *** THE ceremony of planting an honor avenue to the memory of the men who enlisted from Frankston will take place at Frankston today, at 3 o’clock. The State Governor, Senator Miller and Captain Bruce, M. P. will be the principal speakers. When completed the avenue will be one mile long, and the tree selected is that fine Australian specimen Eucalyptus Batryoides. A feature of the function will be the presence of 500 returned soldiers. These will be conveyed to Frankston by the Volunteer Motor Corps, which on that day will complete its 500th soldiers’ motor excursion. The corps reserved its 500th trip for Frankston, in recognition of the extensive hospitality of the Frankston Wattle Club to soldiers. The Wattle Club will entertain the 500 returned soldiers at luncheon after the ceremony. *** HASTINGS school boys journeyed to Crib Point on Saturday to play football, the game being a very fine one. The total scores being, Hastings, 8 goals 6 behinds 54 points to Crib Point 5 goals 10 behinds 40 points.

Mrs Lewis and Mrs Davis of Crib Point treated the boys to afternoon tea, which was much appreciated by them. *** THE Lady Mayoress’ League (Somerville Branch) is giving a Japanese Fair in aid of the Comforts Fund etc, on August the 16th and 17th. Captain Bruce M. C., M H.R. has been asked to open the Fair. Mr Duncan Puckle is Hon. Organiser and Mrs Ralph Philbrick Hon. Sec. and a strong committee is being formed to make the affair of as widespread interest as possible. The local Red Cross Society has been asked to cooperate and share the profits. The interest of the Shire Council and other local bodies is also asked. The fair promises to be a huge success. Particulars will appear in our advertising columns at an early date. *** THE Frankston Electric Lighting Company is gradually enlarging its sphere of usefulness. Since Monday last it has been running an all night service, viz, from 5 p.m. to 7.30 a.m. This will prove of great benefit to those requiring light after the usual hours and should be an incentive to those not having it laid on to have it as speedily as possible. *** IN aid of that worthy body, the Frankston Red Cross society, a grand concert will be given in the Frankston hall on Saturday evening, 17th August. Mr J. B. Jolly, the Hon. Organiser, is

getting together some of Melbourne’s best professional artists, who will give their services gratis. It is expected that the celebrated actress and dancer, Miss Maud Chatwynd will appear, together with the gifted soprano, Miss Elsie Trewick. *** ADAMSON Strettle and Co will hold their monthly sale at Tanti, on Monday, when a good yarding will be offered, for sale, and on Wednesday next they will hold a clearing sale at Carrum, on behalf of Mr Christensen, who is disposing of his dairy cattle, horses, implements, etc. The sale will commence at 1.30 o’clock. *** THE Rev. Watts, of Holy Trinity Church, Hastings, preached a memorial service to the late Mrs Olive Bowells. *** ARBOR Day was observed at the Langwarrin State School on Friday, July 5th, when a number of trees were planted by the scholars and parents who attended. The school grounds are now stocked with a variety of trees and shrubs and gives promise of soon becoming an attractive, and picturesque spot. A rain gauge has been purchased and the following rain record for June has been registered by. the scholars and Head Teacher. *** SHIRE of Frankston and Hastings, MONTHLY MEETING. The monthly meeting of the above was held on Thursday, 4th July. Present:– Crs Oates, in the chair,

Mason, Turner, Hodgins, Watt, Unthank and Longmuir. An apology was received from Cr Clements for inability to attend. Engineer’s Report – The work of sheeting the Pt. Nepean road, over Oliver’s Hill, is just about completed and the road is now in very good condition The work has been carried out by Foreman McComb and. party. Honor Avenue – Arrangements have been made to form the Honor Avenue at Frankston with the road machine. Works at Langwarrin – Nine chains of metalling have been carried out near the Military encampment at Langwarrin. Repairs Pt Nepean road, near Nyora – Repairs have been effected to this road between Nyora and Oliver’s Hill. Culvert Short Road to Baxter. Foreman Bladen has completed the culvert on this road. *** THE annual plain and fancy dress ball, under the auspices of the Frankston Wattle Club, is fixed for Friday, July 26th. Full particulars will be advertised next week. *** THE Hon. Treasurer Roll of Honor fund gratefully acknowledges receipt of the following donations:— Mrs B. M. Garrood 14s 6d, 15s; Mr C. Wood 1s 6d. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 13 July 1918

Sharks slip up in sluggish conditions DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn LADDER leaders Sorrento Sharks succumbed to Bonbeach in a shock loss at home this Saturday in wet and windy weather. Bonbeach, who have struggled with inconsistency all through the season, had to endure a fast starting Sorrento in a first quarter that saw Bonbeach only register two scoring shots to their opponent’s 12. Sorrento were wasteful in front of goal however, and could only register two goals and 10 behinds to keep Bonbeach in touch. Bonbeach capitalised on Sorrento’s wasteful form in front of goal in the second quarter, as they established a nine-point lead going into the halftime break. Given the horror conditions, both teams were struggling to put goals on the board, which ensured the contest remained even right through to the final siren. Although Bonbeach could only manage one goal in the second half, they managed to hold on their lead to claim an important victory over Sorrento 4.15 (39) to 6.11 (47). The loss sees Sorrento lose their firm grip on top of the ladder, as Edithvale-Aspendale are now only behind them on percentage following their impressive win over Seaford. Edithvale-Aspendale also endured a difficult start and failed to adapt to the tough conditions, as they kicked seven straight behinds in the first term and went into the first break trailing last place Seaford. Edithvale-Aspendale quickly recov-

ered from their sluggish first quarter and established a lead in the second term that they would hold onto for the rest of the day.

Seaford couldn’t keep up with the quality of their opponents and eventually fell to Edithvale-Aspendale 8.20 (68) to 5.6 (36).

Sam Monaghan and Michael Bussey were again amongst the best performers for Edi-Asp, who could claim top spot on the ladder should Sorrento slip up again in the coming weeks. Both sides sit at 10 wins and three losses going into the last month of the home and away season. At Greg Beck Oval, Frankston YCW were faced with a do or die situation as they looked to beat the Frankston Bombers claim their first win in six weeks. Since their victory over Mornington in Round 6, Frankston YCW have yet to claim a single win, and would shockingly drop out of the top five if they failed to secure a result over their Frankston rivals. The Bombers had the best of the early opportunities, as they dominated the inside 50 count and looked much the better side. Despite having all the momentum, the water-logged ground made it difficult to capitalise, and the Bombers only went into the half-time break with a narrow two-point lead. With the Stonecats battling hard to fight their way back into the game, the game looked set to go down to the wire. Only two goals were kicked in the second half, but the tough, contested football saw the rabid Frankston crowd on the edge of their seats. When the final siren sounded it was the Bombers who held onto a slim lead, as they claimed victory over the

Stonecats 5.11 (41) to 5.5 (35). The loss sees the Stonecats slump to sixth on the ladder, unchartered territory for the side that has dominated the league for so long. They will have a bye next weekend, which will allow them a chance to rest and regain some key names. YCW’s Byron Barry and Christian Ongarello were impressive against a relentless Bombers outfit, as they were able to provide consistent rebound to give their side a glimpse of hope. Jason Kingbury, Dale Sutton, and Matthew Harris were the best performers for the winning side. At Olympic Oval, Rosebud played host to Pines in what would turn out to be a miserable afternoon for the home team. Pines got off to an impressive start and took a twenty point lead into the first break, and Rosebud wouldn’t come close to catching up. Pines’ defence held strong and only conceded three goals for the whole afternoon, as they ran out as convincing 3.8 (26) to 11.12 (78) winners. Aaron Edwards kicked another four goals to take his tally for the year to 38 from 11 games. Most teams will enjoy a week off next week, with Seaford and Rosebud at Belvedere Reserve being the only MPNFL Division One action for the weekend.


Hastings hold onto top five by beating Yabbies DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn HASTINGS have established a sixpoint gap between themselves and sixth place with a big win over Tyabb to put themselves in pole position for a finals spot. Hastings showed their intent early with a stunning five goals to zero first quarter in tough conditions, which set the tone for the remainder of the afternoon. Tyabb fought back to get within reach, but ultimately ran out of time and fell short by 16 points, going down to Hastings 10.7 (67) to 8.3 (51). Shaun Foster booted four goals in a best on ground performance for Hastings, while Jake Anderson impressed for the Yabbies with four goals of his own. It was business as usual for top of the ladder Dromana at home, as they beat Devon Meadows in a fairly comfortable victory. Devon Meadows kept in arms reach in the first term and went into the quarter time break only down by four, but Dromana quickly asserted their dominance in the second quarter. Devon Meadows were held scoreless in the second term, as Dromana ran away to a convincing lead that they would not let go of throughout the rest of the game. Rikki Johnston played his best game for the year, booting four goals for Dromana to help his side to an 8.15 (63) to 5.8 (38) win. There were also no surprises at Ballam Park Reserve as Karingal claimed a solid victory at home against Pearcedale. Coming off a shock loss to Langwarrin last week, the Bulls were looking to bounce back with a vengeance. The Bulls worked hard to put on a complete team performance, as they had eight individual goalkickers contribute towards a healthy win. With Chelsea hot on their heels, the Bulls could not afford to slip up, and they kept a hold of second place with a convincing 8.12 (60) to 6.5 (41) win. Chelsea needed to win to keep in touch with Karingal, and they did so in impressive fashion over a disappointing Rye outfit. The Seagulls struck hard early and has established a 22 point buffer by quarter time, which would prove to be insurmountable in the rough conditions. Scoring just one first-half goal, Rye struggled badly and never


looked a chance against their impressive Chelsea opponents. James Brain and Curtis Bywater kicked four goals each for Chelsea, the latter taking his tally for the year to 47, as the Seagulls claimed a comprehensive win 13.9 (87) to 4.6 (30). The win helped close the percentage gap, and they are now only marginally behind Karingal going into the closing rounds of the year. At Red Hill Recreation Reserve, Langwarrin travelled to take on fourth-placed Red Hill. Langwarrin came into the contest full of confidence having knocked off Karingal last weekend but unfortunately could not back up that performance. The Kangaroos started strong as both sides kicked two goals in the first term, but Langwarrin quickly lost control of the game as Red Hill held them scoreless for the next two whole quarters. Red Hill quickly kicked away and put on one of the most impressive defensive displays for the year as they ran away to a comfortable win. Langwarrin managed to score a few behinds in the final term but again failed to score a major as they went a stunning three quarters without a goal. Ben Hughes impressed with three goals for Red Hill, as his side completed a comfortable 7.13 (55) to 2.5 (17) win. In the final match of the weekend, Somerville hosted Crib Point in what would turn out to be another miserable afternoon for the visitors. Crib Point approached the game looking to claim just their second win for the year but were quickly put on the back foot as Somerville took a 15 point lead into the first break. Crib Point were able to prevent the home side from blowing out the lead too much, but ultimately could not fight their way back into the contest, as they went down to Somerville 9.8 (62) to 4.9 (33).

Strikers down Pines, Seaford wins again SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie PENINSULA Strikers gave themselves a lifeline by winning Saturday’s State 2 South-East derby 2-0 against Frankston Pines at Monterey Reserve. It was only the club’s second win in a season of turmoil but it gives Strikers hope that they can climb off the foot of the league ladder. Referee James Milloy took centre stage before the match with opinions varied as to whether or not he should allow the contest to take place given the drenching the pitch had taken with little respite in sight. And eight minutes into the contest the home team was wishing that Milloy hadn’t given the fixture the thumbs up. Big Alex van Heerwarden smashed the ball onto the crossbar after Pines had failed to clear a low curled freekick from Nathan Smith and John Prescott hammered the rebound past Pines keeper Jarrod Nardino to open the scoring. Pines striker Mitch Lander broke down the left in the 16th minute then cut inside but he sent his low shot wide of the far post and a minute later it was 2-0. Brandon Jansz, Danny Black and Sam Luxford had all joined Strikers recently from Mornington and although Jansz’s through ball intended for Prescott was blocked it eventually fell to the English striker and his clinical low finish from 10 metres gave Strikers some breathing space. CJ Hodgson had Pines’ best chances of the second half but he volleyed wide in the 86th minute and 18-year-old Strikers’ keeper Dylan Mery got down well three minutes later to save Hodgson’s strike from inside the area. While Strikers’ gaffer Jamie Skelly was delighted with the win he knows the enormity of the task facing his men if they are to save their State 2 status. “We have to play five teams in the relegation mix and realistically we’d want to win all five games but we are capable of that,” Skelly said. Strikers continue to target new signings and take on title chasing Knox City this weekend. Don’t be surprised if another one and possibly two newcomers feature against Knox. In NPL2 news Langwarrin lost 3-2 away to championship-chasing Dandenong City last Friday night. Despite the gulf in class (and wages’ bill) and the home side dominating possession Langy proved to be a stubborn opponent and it took a contender for goal of the season from David Stirton

to settle the issue. Dandenong’s hallmark interpassing game was on show throughout the first half but the sides were locked at 1-1 at the break. Shaun Filipovic’s 8th minute header put City ahead but it paid for its profligacy in front of goal when Mehdi Sarwari’s close-range strike in the 33rd minute gave Langy the equaliser. But three minutes into the second stanza the Langy defence paid the price of failing to attack a curling cross from Shayan Alinejad on the right and the ball bounced inside the six-yard box before sneaking inside the far post to make it 2-1. When Brendan Richardson decided to take on two opponents in the 68th minute rather than pass he was stripped of the ball. Stirton spotted Langy keeper Robbie Acs off his line so he launched a remarkable strike from a few steps inside the attacking half sending the ball sailing over Acs’ head and into goal to the delight of the home fans and the City bench. But for Langy there’s no surrender and when John Kuol headed home in the 81st minute following a cross from substitute Liam Baxter it ensured an interesting finish to a contest that City should have put to bed earlier. In NPLW news Southern United’s under-12s drew 2-2 at home to Bayside United on Sunday with Emilia Ingles scoring for Southern. The under-14, under-16, under-19 and senior games were cancelled due to

the pitch condition. In State 1 South-East news Mornington paid the price for poor finishing and was eventually overrun by Richmond 4-1 at Kevin Bartlett Reserve on Saturday. A near post header from Mehdi Martin in the 17th minute put the home side in front and three minutes into the second half Vangelis Skraparas’ deflected shot from just outside the area made it 2-0. Arnold Suew broke down the left in the 59th minute and his cutback set up Juan Gallego for a tap-in and the same combination cut a swathe through the Mornington defence in the 80th minute with Gallego cleverly lobbing the ball over the head of advancing Mornington keeper Liam Little to make it 4-0. A superb long-range strike from Curtis Hutson in the 91st minute was the visitors’ sole reply. Mornington goalkeeping coach Peter Blasby has resigned. In State 3 South-East news Skye United won 4-0 at home to South Yarra in the race for second spot in the league. Referee Stefano Di Giovanni decided to play on a water-logged pitch and when Jack Gallagher was brought down inside the box in the 7th minute Caleb Nicholes converted from the spot. In the 43rd minute a Daniel Walsh volley following Jason Nowakowksi’s corner gave the home side a two-goal cushion at the break. Another pitch inspection took place before the second half started with


South Yarra adamant that the match should be called off. The referee disagreed and two minutes into the second half South Yarra’s Thomas Meredith told Di Giovanni what he thought of the decision to continue and was promptly red carded. Daniel Attard sent Nicholes through in the 56th minute and he gave Skye an unassailable lead with substitute Mitch Blake rounding off the scoreline in the 91st minute by heading home a Walsh cross. Harry McCartney reports that Seaford United’s push to avoid relegation continued on Saturday when Matt Morris-Thomas’ men defeated Bayside Argonauts 3-2 at Shipston Reserve to record their third straight win. Bayside struck first after a botched clearance from Li Nam Wang in the 29th minute. Anton Magee struck a 25-metre belter into the top left corner giving Seaford keeper Jimmy Zafiriou no chance. But Seaford hit back five minutes later when Bayside keeper Elliott Johnston parried a Dylan Waugh shot and Callum Richardson’s second spectacular overhead kick in three weeks squared the ledger. Bayside was the stronger side in the first 20 minutes of the second half having a goal chalked off for offside, hitting the crossbar twice and having a header cleared off the line. Against the run of play the visitors took the lead in the 70th minute after the tireless chasing of Matty Schwellinger was rewarded when he

won possession and his cross was met by Seaford captain Daniel Mota who side-footed home. In injury time Waugh turned on a bouncing ball and from long range struck it first time over a flat-footed Johnston to make it 3-1 but shortly after a through ball that should have been cut out by Zafiriou was won by Sam Jones who made it 3-2 making for a nervous few minutes for the visitors. In State 4 South news Baxter’s scheduled home clash with Dandenong Warriors was washed out. Meanwhile Somerville Eagles moved into second spot in State 5 South one point behind Lyndale United after Saturday’s 4-1 home win over Casey Panthers. Somerville player-coach Dave Greening opened the scoring in the 10th minute with a scorching low drive but within a minute Casey had levelled thanks to a Marcus Roberts’ free-kick that home team keeper Brad Klarenbeek would want to forget. A handball early in the second half allowed Greening to restore the Eagles’ lead from the penalty spot and within five minutes it was 4-1. A superb Damian Finnegan pass was controlled by Greening with a great first touch before he smashed his drive inside the near post then Joel Wade did well down the right before cutting the ball back to Greening who slammed in his fourth goal of another productive day for the league’s top scorer. “To be honest that could and should of been more,” Greening said. “But at this stage of the season it’s all about getting the three points, and we did that so that’s pleasing. “It was also good to ‘blood’ some of the in-form reserves late in the game to give them some senior game time to help their development.” Next weekend’s games: SATURDAY 3pm: Langwarrin v Springvale White Eagles (Lawton Park), Mornington v St Kilda (Dallas Brooks Park), Peninsula Strikers v Knox City (Centenary Park), Old Scotch v Frankston Pines (H.A. Smith Reserve), Seaford Utd v Whitehorse Utd (North Seaford Reserve), Dingley Stars v Skye Utd (Chadwick Reserve), Noble Park v Baxter (Norman Luth Reserve), Aspendale v Pakenham Utd (Jack Grut Reserve), Somerville Eagles bye. SUNDAY 3.15pm: Southern Utd v Calder Utd (Monterey Reserve, U12s 9am, U14s 10.15am, U16s 11.40am, U19s 1.15pm).
