rina’s ACS general manager Mr Warren Hughes raised $2,000 in eight minutes on Thursday, June 20, for 2GO’s Give Me Five for Kids campaign. Mr Hughes joined 2GO’s Give Me Five for Kids bed pan challenge and donned a bright green monster onesie in support of sick kids on the Coast. Mr Hughes elicited a $1,000 donation from ACS, $300 from The Beach

Early Learning Centre, $100 from Central Coast Cleaning Supply Shop, $100 from Living Green Designer Homes and $50 each from Totally Workwear Tuggerah, Goodyear Autocare Gosford, City Plan Services, Outback Plumbing Australia, Greenroom Espresso Cafe, The Sanctuary Cafe (Ken Duncan Gallery), Precision Fire Protection Services, Figtree and Moran Accountants, Power2Grid and KR Jones and Healey. Mr Hughes then ventured

to Westmead Children’s Hospital on Friday, June 21, to accept a thank you gift from Head of the Rehabilitation Unit Ms Mary Claire Doherty for a donation of $9,000 made by Warren and his wife Donna on behalf of ACS. “If ever you think you are doing it tough, come to the kid’s hospital for a day and see the challenge many of these little ones face on a daily basis,” said Mr Hughes. “It brings you back to earth very quickly.”

Give Me Five for Kids pyjama day a success

Joy Allan, Ettalong Beach Club

A Give Me Five for Kids PJ Day was held on Monday, June 3, at Ettalong Beach Club which saw over $600 raised from donations. Give Me Five for Kids is a fundraising initiative supported by over 40 radio and TV stations across regional Australia. For almost 20 years, the month of June has been dedicated to raising much needed funds for local community hospitals. All donations received stay local and go directly to the children’s ward in each market to help provide the best possible care for local sick children and their families when they need it most. At Ettalong Beach

Club, not only were staff encouraged to wear their pyjamas to work, but also club members and guests. The club’s staff were given a challenge to raise over $200 which would see the club’s newly appointed CEO Mr Bill Jackson wear his pyjamas for the day, and the staff succeeded in the challenge. Despite having a number of appointments scheduled for the day, Mr Jackson attended the meetings in his pink polka dot pyjama pants and slippers. To further encourage members and guests to wear their pyjamas, Ettalong Beach Club provided free entertainment with an arts and crafts table set up for

the kids. The kids also participated in a disco and face painting as well as a movie showing on the large projector screen. For a gold coin donation, a coffee station was available for the mums and dads while the kids were being entertained. “The fundraising of these funds back into the children’s ward at the local hospitals is one of the most humbling and rewarding days for the club,” said Mr Jackson. “I’m proud to announce at the recent Board of Directors meeting held June 13, the Board resolved to donate a further $5,000 to 2GO’s Give Me Five for Kids 2013.”

A report will come back to Council outlining options for alternative sites for a resource recovery facility, options for the gradual rehabilitation of the site and the ownership of the land and adjacent parcels. Council will explore a number of alternatives for the use of this site, now and into the future, balancing the financial impact of resource recovery activities and ensuring the environmental concerns of residents are addressed. The quarry was initially purchased by Council in 1997 and operated as a sandstone quarry supplying materials for some of Council’s road works. More recently, Council lodged a planning proposal for a Resource Recovery Facility on the site which caused wide spread community disquiet.

the discussion was not unanimous, with Crs Bob Ward, Hillary Morris and Vicki Scott opposing the amendment moved by Cr Chris Burke. Cr Morris, who starred the Notice of Motion, said

Springfield Quarry had been around since 1971 and Springfield “is obviously a very different place now”. “The purchase of Springfield Quarry was negotiated specifically for inclusion in the Coastal

Open Space Scheme (COSS) and the purchase price reflected this. “I would like to see the return of the quarry to COSS and the community and put an end to this,” said Cr Morris.

intersections Wyong Council Major to be upgraded restructured M A

Your independent local sports newspaper - 4325 7369

Adam Ashley-Cooper stars in Wallaby performance F

Mr Spence said this t its Ordinary Meeting of Wednesday, June 12, Wyong Council adopted a revised organisational structure which builds upon was a great win for the people of the Central major changes adopted in November last year.

The restructure aims to achieve an equitable distribution of responsibilities across the organisation. It also attempts to support council’s strategic priorities, in particular, a renewed focus on stimulating local economic development. Wyong mayor Cr Doug Eaton said the changes would allow council to maximise the community’s value for money. “It clearly shows our increased focus on commercial activities and functions, as opposed to a traditional public service provision role,” he said. In terms of Infrastructure and Operations, the new structure will allow resources to be dedicated to the areas of major concern raised through recent community consultation. These are roads, lakes - natural areas and drainage. The new waterways group will be in a position to dedicate resources to

lake improvements and put a concerted effort into drainage issues that previously have been of a lower priority. The changes also mean there will be no unit dealing specifically with the environment. Instead, Wyong Council general manager Mr Michael Whittaker said the environment would become entrenched in the roles of 1,200 council staff members. “Having [the environment] in one area makes people think it’s only one person’s job,” Mr Whittaker said. “We need everyone to understand that they have responsibility for the environment.” The Sport, Leisure and Recreation Unit will become Community, Business and Tourism under the restructure and will focus on those community services that are a business. This will incorporate pools, recreation centres, childcare and in future, cemeteries. The unit will also

We

provide a central focus on tourism, identifying and assisting in grasping opportunities that will impact the Wyong Shire. Open Space will be renamed Open Space and Recreation to more accurately reflect its function. Council has also adopted a reduced target for total full time staff equivalent numbers of 1,000 by the end of 2016 2017, while resolving that no existing permanent award staff member would be impacted by the change. The restructure continues the trend to decrease middle management with the number of service unit managers reducing from 20 in 2011, to 26 in 2012, and 19 from the adoption of the latest structure. Staff and staff representation groups now have the opportunity to comment on the restructure.

Coast. “The NSW Government has committed to funding the upgrades of the four pinch-point intersections on Wyong Rd in full, totalling over $100 million,” he said. Mr Webber also said that day after day, motorists sat bumper to bumper on Wyong Rd. “The intersections Wyong Road - Tumbi Road Intersection at Pacific Highway, Enterprise Dr, Mingara to get them underway,” intersection upgrades at Tumbi Rd and Mingara Dr and Tumbi Rd have he said. “This year we have Dr, a further $800,000 in long been identified as problematic, and we are a total of $5.6 million progress planning for the including Enterprise Dr intersection, excited that this budget allocated, has delivered the funding $800,000 in progress and $4 million for Pacific planning for the Highway.” Construction funding will be allocated in the 2014/2015 budget and will begin in the same year. “The Liberal members across the Central Coast have made sure that the needs of the region continue to be a priority and today we see evidence that the NSW government is listening,” Mr Spence said.

The Wallabies were defeated 23-21 in front of a new ground record crowd of 52,499. The Wallabies would have won the match had they not missed four kicks at goal, two of which were in

the last ten minutes. The match was lit up by two of the best solo tries in recent memory, to George North for the Lions and Israel Folau for the Wallabies (twice), who scored individual tries as the Lions held on for the nail-biting victory, after the Wallabies were severely disrupted by four injuries to key backline players. Ashley-Cooper was replaced with four minutes to go by reserve scrumhalf Nick Phipps. The teams now move on to Melbourne at Etihad Stadium on Saturday, June 29, for what is sure to be a thrilling second test of the three.

The match was the final qualification match for Australia’s group with the top two earning direct qualification to the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. Rogic troubled the Iraqi defence before Josh Kennedy scored the winning goal in the 1-0 victory. Needing a win to assure a spot at a third straight World Cup, the Socceroos looked like blowing their chance

as the stubborn visitors held firm for more than 82 minutes. But in his first Socceroos appearance in 19 months, Kennedy came off the bench to nod home Mark Bresciano’s cross seven minutes from time to send the crowd of 80,532 into delirium. Australia boss Holger Osieck received a few boos from the home fans when he opted to substitute favourite son Tim Cahill for Kennedy just a few minutes earlier. But the decision proved a masterstroke as Kennedy did what he does best, giving Iraq ‘keeper Noor Sabri no chance with a wellplaced header from just six

yards out. The nail-biting victory meant the Socceroos finished second in their group behind Japan and avoided going into the lottery of the play-offs later this year. Knowing a win over the inexperienced Iraqi’s would ensure Australia’s berth for a third straight World Cup, there was a sense of excited anticipation amongst the fans before kick-off. Searching for ways to unlock the stubborn Iraqi defence, Holger Osieck introduced young star Tom Rogic on the hour and the Celtic midfielder immediately lifted the tempo. The Socceroos thought

they had the crucial breakthrough 25 minutes from time when a poor headed clearance landed perfectly for Kruse to volley home from just outside the box. But celebrations soon turned to despair as Iranian referee Faghani Alireza had already blown for a foul by Ognenovski in the lead-up. The close call only added to the tension, which soon turned to shock among the home fans as Cahill made way for Kennedy.

Cr Ward echoed Cr Morris’s views and said he didn’t understand why the quarry had to be located in a residential area. “It was very isolated in 1971, it is now very built up,” said Cr Ward. Cr Gabby Bowles said she understood the issue was an emotional one for a lot of people. “It’s fair enough that they’d like to move on with their lives and get back some of their tranquillity,’ said Cr Bowles. “But there is work that will need to take place on this site to remediate it. “That land as it is now is not in a position as it stands to be turned back over to our community. “It’s quite overgrown,” said Cr Bowles. The report on rehabilitation, alternative sites and ownership of adjacent land will come back to Council no later than September. As a result of the deferment, the site will be inactive, with the exception of the removal of the current won materials and storage of material, until a final decision is made.

Four classes will be delivered on the day for one to four-year-olds and parents are welcome to come and observe with morning tea provided. “It’s a wonderful opportunity for parents,

grandparents or carers to see what happens in a typical early childhood music lesson at the Conservatorium,” said Head of CMP Ms Melissa Lark. “It’s also a great way to meet other parents with children the same age and with similar interests,” she said. The first stages of CMP include the parent as a participant and contain a variety of activities including songs, rhymes,

movement and playing percussion instruments. “The classes provide a stimulating range of musical experiences and encourage children to respond to music, to join in the music-making and to make their own music,” said Ms Lark. Anyone interested is encouraged to attend the Conservatorium on Thursday, July 11, and register in the Robert Knox Hall for either the 9:45am or 10:30am class.

Viola on show

A roaring good time

Lisa Kelly, Central Coast Conservatorium

T

he Central Coast Conservatorium will host a concert at the Gosford Anglican Church on Friday, June 28, featuring the Central Coast Youth Orchestra who will premiere a piece by local composer Adrian Bell. The work, entitled Concertino for Viola, will feature Olivia Bell as soloist, and was designed to highlight the viola instrument. “Of all the string family instruments, the viola is neglected the most as a soloist,” Mr Bell said. “Yet if its voice can be allowed to cut through, it will penetrate the heart like an arrow and open the most wonderful vistas. “It may come as a surprise that the viola was the instrument of choice

for many of the great composers when playing in ensembles, among them Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert. “My intention with the Concertino was to embody the viola’s rich, pastoral beauty, its melancholy, its introspective joy, its sense of contemplation and its ability to speak with equal eloquence of mystical India and pastoral England,” Mr Bell said. The Youth Orchestra will also be performing Rimsky Korsakov’s Procession of the Nobles, and Mussorgsky’s Night on the Bald Mountain. Also on the program for the evening is the Central Coast Chamber Group, The Central Coast Children’s Choir, Katandra Voices, The Jazz Ensemble and Central Coast Symphonic Wind Orchestra.

Central Coast Children’s Choir director and conductor Ms Joanne McMahon will also be debuting a piece called Wally Wombat Shuffle, composed and arranged by Lisa Young. “It is a wonderful, fun song, albeit challenging in places, that the children have thoroughly enjoyed,” Ms McMahon said. “This song will be performed in Acapella.” There will be two other composers’ concerts held at the Conservatorium this year, with the second featuring a composition by Phillip Rutherford on Friday, September 20, and the third featuring a composition by Youth Orchestra directorconductor Mr John Nottle on Friday, December 6.

The Central Coast’s New Empire Ballroom Ragtime Dance Orchestra will perform memorable songs from the 1920s era, including ‘Yes Sir That’s my

Baby’ and ‘Five Foot 2 Eyes of Blue’. Orchestra director Mr Barney Waters has encouraged Central Coast residents to attend and pay tribute to the music of the era. “This unique 18 piece orchestra plus vocalists is made up of some of

the Central Coast’s most talented young musicians playing timeless melodies from that fabulous era,” Mr Waters said. “Dust off your dancing shoes, sing along, or just sit back and take a trip down memory lane and enjoy the great music of the roaring 20s.”

“Umina Beach Yoga has had a wonderful first year, with two successful bush retreats, charity events, a great timetable, pop up classes and happy satisfied customers,” said yoga teacher Ms Helen Macnair. Ruby Sheehan from Umina was diagnosed with

cystic fibrosis at a week old after needing bowel surgery. At 2-years-old, she takes over 40 medications a day and spends around two hours every day doing breathing treatments. “Attending Mini Yoga is a social highlight of her week, as well as a great way of sneaking in extra physiotherapy and teaching her to use her lungs to their full capacity,” said Ms Macnair. Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease that affects a number of organs in the body, especially the lungs,

by clogging them with thick, sticky mucus. Every four days, a baby in Australia is born with cystic fibrosis. There is no cure and the average life expectancy of someone with cystic fibrosis is currently 37. One in 25 people carry the cystic fibrosis gene and most don’t know it. Class prices for the Family Yoga Class are by donation. With inquiries, contact Helen 0431 732 143 or helen@uminabeachyoga. com.

DEB DELIVERS $668,464 EXTRA FOR COMMUNITY INFRASTRUCTURE The Federal Government has announced that Gosford Council is about to receive an extra $668,464 to improve the lives of Coasties. This builds on the $58 million investment that I have delivered for locals through our Council in just the last two years. That’s 5,700% more money for us than the last Liberal member got. This new money is about infrastructure for Coasties, because as a local for 28 years I know we need more things for the Coast - but we can’t afford for our rates to go up. That’s why federal money for our local Council is so important. I’m asking that you HAVE YOUR SAY by emailing or phoning my office and telling me what you would like to see this money spent on. It could be sporting facilities, cycleways, local libraries, playgrounds, more CCTV, or upgrades to seniors or cultural facilities. I will pass on your ideas to Council to make sure that our community voice is heard in building our new infrastructure.

Already delivered: $7.6m for local roads $2m for the Ettalong Foreshore $70,000 for CCTV for Terrigal $122,000 for CCTV and safety lighting for Umina

VOLUNTEER AWARDS Recognising our dedicated volunteers

Local artists to feature P at wine, cheese and art evening

Youths play the Gosford project Sharon Aldrick, Youth Arts Warehouse

olitical comedy play, ‘The Gosford Project’, will be performed at the Youth Arts Warehouse in Gosford on June 27 and 28 from 7pm to 8pm.

Gwynneth Weir, The Bays Community Group

T

he Bay’s Community Group will hold its annual Wine, Cheese and Art evening at The Bays Community Hall on Saturday, July 13, from 7:30pm.

The event will see an exhibition by painters of the Peninsula comprising Graeme Balchin, Karen Medcalf and Jan Purcell. Graeme, who has entered works in the Archibald Prize, teaches art at the Gosford Regional Gallery and also from home. After starting his working life as a sign writer, Graeme developed his own detailed and accurate artistic style with intricate brush work which, along with his use of colour and shade, captured the natural beauty of his subjects. Graeme now works as an artist full-time and has won numerous awards and prizes for his work. Karen, who is one of Graeme’s students, paints a wide variety of subjects including seascapes, marine art, portraits, landscapes and floral compositions.

She has successfully exhibited at various studios on the Coast. Karen is also an accomplished silk artist and her work is recognised in private collections in the United Kingdom and Australia. Karen recently won the Viewer’s Choice Award at the Rotary Portrait Prize for her painting of ‘Captain Jack Sparrow’. Jan is a resident of The Bays and her work consists of colourful abstract images. Jan has also been a teacher of young children, and has helped run the centre on McMasters Rd, where she taught pottery. Jan paints under the name of Janni Jones. Entry to the Wine, Cheese and Art evening costs $25 and is by ticket only. Tickets must be bought in advance and cannot be purchased on the door.

“The live performance will have you laughing at the well-illustrated characters drawn from the local city of Gosford, past and present,” said Youth Arts coordinator Ms Sharon Aldrick. “You may even see yourself reflected in this exaggerated over the top cast of young performers aged 12 to 17 years. “The talents of young creative minds from the script writing and performance program, Playwrite have put pen to paper writing a hilarious play about our Gosford and what could happen to this beloved City, when evil developers plan to mine the CBD for gas and oil and re-locate the residents. “All tongue in cheek, it features local politics, businesses, Gosford history and our next big plan for the city. “The theatre group consists of many talented, dedicated and bright young people from a range of schools and backgrounds. “Under the tutelage of James Wright and Amy Wilson who co-direct the final work, the students develop their skills in script writing, theatre production, acting, and characterisation. “This is a great

opportunity to see live theatre in a contemporary space written, directed, acted and performed by

young people. “The Playwrite program will be continuing next semester

Lah-Lah’s big live act

Tina Harris, Lah-Lah Productions

A

u s t r a l i a n children’s music group Lah-Lah’s Big Live Band will perform at the Davistown RSL on Friday, July 12. The group, which have been together for four years and have just finished filming their debut international TV series, are about to embark on a Sydney and Melbourne tour with Davistown as their last stop. Lah-Lah features some of Australia’s local talent in the areas of gypsy, jazz, rock and classical music, including Tina Harris who has performance credits with Opera Australia and Mark Harris from Monsieur Camembert, who plays Buzz the Bandleader. The band also features

Nic Cecire as Tom Tom the drums, Matt Ottignon as the Mister Saxophone and Gary Daley as Squeezy Sneezy. “What makes LahLah different is that it’s a band of friends, of great musicians who love music and love playing for families,” Mr Harris said. “Parents often comment after shows that they can’t believe it is kid’s music, because they love our songs as much as the kids do. “That’s because all the music on stage is live and the band improvises their solos just like they would in a jazz concert. “This gives the music energy and makes every show exciting,” Mark said.

Donna Judge, The Entrance Town Centre Management

T

he Entrance Winter Blues and Jazz Festival is back after two years and will be held on Sunday, July 7, at Memorial Park.

A big crowd is expected for the free event with acts including Bondi Cigars, The New Empire Ballroom Ragtime Dance Orchestra, Keith Hall and Pat Dow Band, Mumma Jane Blues Band and Neilsen Gough. “Bondi Cigars are our headlining band and rarely do you see an Australian band be as consistent and widely acclaimed from music critics and fans than these guys,” said The Entrance Town Centre Management events and promotions coordinator

Ms Donna Judge. “With nine fabulous albums under their belt and over 21 years of constant touring, this award winning quartet has well and truly worked their way into everyone’s hearts.” The Bondi Cigars will perform from 3:15pm until the close of the festival at 4:30pm. The New Empire Ballroom Ragtime Dance Orchestra will kick off the festival with their concert from 10am to 11am. The Orchestra is a re-creation of the Hot Dance Orchestras of the 1920s and early 1930s and is made up of young musicians aged 15 to 23. Keith Hall and Pat Dow Band are a national

and international blues rhythm and blues - roots touring band. Keith and Pat’s 2012 album ‘This Kind of Blue’ debuted at number eight on the Australian Top 25 Blues and Roots Chart. The album climbed to number six the following month and stayed in the charts for six months. During this time they embarked on a national tour whereby they were finalists in the SBS national blues challenge last year. Catch the boys perform from 11:20am on the Memorial Park Stage. Mumma Jane Blues Band will be on stage from 12:30pm. Mumma Jane was formed in 2000 by Jane

Stewart Kemble and Jim Wright to play the blues of the 40s and 50s Chicago style and to also pay homage to the greats - Muddy Waters, Koko Taylor, Little Walter, Etta James, Willie Dixon, Jimmy Rogers and Jimmy Reed. Mumma Jane enjoys a reputation for delivering u n c o m p r o m i s e d authentic slices of Chi Town Blues. Mumma Jane is a six piece band featuring vocals, bass, drums, two guitarists and a blues harp. Neilsen Gough, with his natural lyricism and masterful jazz playing on the trumpet, will perform from 1:45pm.

Work commences on waterfront redevelopment The first sod at the $5.2 million Ettalong Waterfront redevelopment was turned on Friday, May 24, with Member for Robertson Ms Deborah O’Neill, Member for Gosford Mr Chris Holstein and Gosford mayor Cr Lawrie McKinna celebrating the start of the collaborative project. Ms O’Neill said this was a project of great pride for the entire community. “I’m very proud of this Federal Government’s investment in our region and it is a real boost for local residents and businesses in Ettalong. “The redevelopment of the Ettalong Beach Foreshore will help us to showcase the natural beauty of our area and will allow both locals and visitors a better chance to share the great lifestyle we enjoy here on the Central Coast,” Ms O’Neill said. Mr Holstein also welcomed the redevelopment. “This project is long overdue, and will be appreciated by both

locals and visitors alike,” said Mr Holstein. Mayor Cr McKinna said the local community had been very involved in this project and everyone was excited for works to be commencing. “The local community is really getting behind this redevelopment and we are happy to see the project will be consistent with the Ettalong Beach Reserve Foreshore Plan of Management. “Council has undergone consultation with the neighbouring property owners, the Peninsula Chamber of Commerce and the Ettalong Beach Business Group, with everyone working together to ensure the redevelopment is reflective of the natural characteristics of the area and meets the needs of the local community,” mayor Cr McKinna said. Scheduled works include a new sandstone seawall, cycleway - footpath, playground, park furniture, carpark realignment, stormwater infrastructure and landscaping in the reserve area between Beach St and the

Gosford Council’s director water and sewer Mr Rod Williams said Gosford Council welcomed IPART’s final report as it would allow Council to get on with the job of maintaining and improving water and sewerage services for the community. The new prices will result in a gradual price increase of 28.0% or $297 over the four year period from July 1, 2013, to June 30, 2017, for

a typical residential bill. Mr Williams said the new prices would help council continue to make multi-million dollar system improvements for approximately 70,000 properties currently using its water supply, sewerage and stormwater networks. “These charges cover the cost of harvesting, treating and delivering safe drinking water to over 68,000 properties through 1,000 kilometres of water mains. “During this pricing period council will be delivering major improvements to the water supply system including a $7.9 million Somersby Water Treatment Plant upgrade that involves the replacement and renewal of

A Beach Facilities Building consisting of a café, kiosk and public toilets will also be constructed at the end of Beach St as will a pedestrian walkway - cycleway along Lance Webb Reserve, between Picnic Pde and Ferry Rd. Beach nourishment and restoration will also take place. Construction of the new public toilet facility at Ferry Rd and the demolition of the Schnapper Rd public toilet in November 2011 are also included in the redevelopment project. The Ettalong Waterfront redevelopment has a $2 million dollar funding contribution from the Federal Government, $2.79 million from Gosford Council, $300,000 from the NSW Government’s Metropolitan Greenspace Program and just over $83,000 from the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage.

Mr Williams noted that reports from the National Water Commission showed the bill for a typical Gosford household remained below the national average in recent years. “We understand any price increase can be a concern for residents and we will always strive to deliver services that provide value for money,” Mr Williams said.

The meeting will provide an update on the current negotiations to sell the property of the club and enter into an agreement which would allow it to continue to trade at its present location. Should these negotiations be unsuccessful, it is highly likely that the club would be forced to close, according to Hardys Bay Residents Group spokesman Mr Allan Wilson. Whatever the outcome of the meeting, the club will require funds to meet its own current liabilities, including entitlements to the staff who are presently working, he said. The club was built in 1983 and houses an 80-plus seated restaurant, lounge bar, gaming room with 15 poker machines, a covered barbecue area, verandas and car parking for over 40 vehicles. “Over the years, a number of fine chefs have graced the club’s restaurant and added

A fundraising function is also being planned for the club for Saturday, June 29, which will feature a performance from a well-known band.

“It will provide the guests with an opportunity to enjoy the excellent food provided by the restaurateur, Dorothee Meyer, who has injected new flavours acquired from her French background,” said Mr Wilson. “It will also enable the patrons to dance the night away and drink a toast to the health and future well-being of this local symbol which has provided so much relaxation for the public for so long,” he said.

The NSW Government has announced it will monitor visitor parking locations for the Broken Bay Sport and Recreation Centre at Little Patonga and implement changes if necessary. The Brooklyn Community Association had asked the Member for Hornsby Mr Matt Kean “to take steps to relieve parking congestion at Brooklyn” by moving the centre’s adult pick-up point from Brooklyn to Patonga. Announcing the monitoring plan, Mr Kean said the centre had been hosting school and community groups for 75 years. “These visitors are important for the local Brooklyn community as they bring much-needed business to local shops and cafes. “The Centre is an asset to the village’s tourism industry and we’re happy to work together with the community so everyone can enjoy this beautiful part of the Hawkesbury region. “We don’t believe our clients are causing any problems with parking in Brooklyn – the majority are school children who arrive by bus.” However, Brooklyn Community Association president Mr Robert Arnold said there was a “major parking problem in Brooklyn”. “We have a range of people

who utilise parking for a holiday or multi-day holidays. “We want to look at how the longer term parking can be better handled,” he said. Mr Arnold said conversations had taken place with Mr Kean about a study into Brooklyn’s parking issues and a plan was in place to perform the study. “The Broken Bay Sport and Recreation Centre in Patonga is just one of the parking issues of about half a dozen different parking requirements that we have. “We want to provide parking for people who are catching the train as well. “Our goal is that if we have medium-term, long-term parking then we move that off what is now our best short-term visitor parking place. “The parking for people travelling to Patonga is right in the centre of Brooklyn so I understand why it is a big issue for the people involved. “These issues have been in Brooklyn for many years and parking has been an issue for many years and there are quite a few people who are passionate about these issues.” Media Statement, 5 Jun 2013 Matt Kean, Member for Hornsby Kaitlin Watts, 23 May 2013 Interviewee: Robert Arnold

Rehabilitation unit is officially opened Woy Woy Hospital’s new $11.6 million 30-bed Rehabilitation Unit was officially opened on Tuesday, June 11, by Minister for Health Ms Jillian Skinner. Ms Skinner was joined by Member for Gosford Mr Chris Holstein, Member for Robertson Ms Deborah O’Neill, Woy Woy Hospital Auxiliary president Ms Phyllis Thomas, Woy Woy Hospital Alliance president Mr Ivan Kinny and Central Coast Local Health District Board Chair Mr Paul Tonkin. The facility was joint-funded with the NSW Government investing $5 million into the project and the Australian Government, under the COAG New Subacute Beds Guarantee contributing $6.6 million. Ms Skinner said she was pleased to deliver on their preelection commitment to restore rehabilitation services to Woy Woy Hospital, which were relocated to Wyong Hospital in 2008. “It is with great excitement that I can be here today to celebrate the fulfilment of a pre-election commitment to provide enhanced rehabilitative care for patients on the Central Coast. “It’s no secret that this area has a growing and ageing population

and to meet this demand we must continue to invest in these services to deliver quality care to the community,” Ms Skinner said. The new unit comprises 30 patient beds including two inpatient rooms, multiple courtyard therapy areas, a gymnasium and a dining room that includes a self-serve beverage bay. The facility also features new kitchen areas, staff facilities, linen

holding areas and waste collection facilities as well as additional parking. Mr Holstein said he was proud to deliver much-needed services for Woy Woy and Central Coast communities. “The NSW Government is delivering on the commitments it has made to the community and our new rehabilitation unit is a wonderful example of this,” Mr

Holstein said. “The Rehabilitation Unit is designed to provide support for patients including coordinated medical, psychological and rehabilitative care tailored to individual needs. “We want to see these patients recover so that they are able to return to the community and live with optimal independence while being supported by communitybased health services. “Provision has also been made for bariatric patients with a specially designed room with a ceiling mounted hoist that also provides access to the ensuite, helping to ensure the safety of both patients and staff,” Mr Holstein said. Ms O’Neill said bringing back the Woy Woy Rehabilitation Ward would make a real and practical difference to local residents needing care and support on the Peninsula. “Anyone can have an accident or a stroke or an illness that puts them in need of rehab services in a dedicated facility,” said Ms O’Neill. “Being near family and friends is part of that healing journey. “I’m very proud to be a part of the Federal Government that has delivered this great new building, and brought this service back to life

here in Woy Woy.” Ms O’Neill also thanked the strong community campaign that made bringing this facility back possible. “This is truly a win for the community. “I want to thank people like Ivan Kinney, Marj Cleere and their dedicated team who, alongside the Woy Woy Hospital Ancillary, kept up their petitioning to make this possible. “We are committed to ensuring that all Australians have access to the right health care, at the right time and in the right place – and better integrating it across public hospitals, primary care and aged care. “By investing in the availability of subacute care services, the Government is improving the capacity of our health system to meet the challenges of an ageing population.” Media release, 11 Jun 2013 Samantha Day, Office of Jillian Skinner Media release, 10 Jun 2013 Richard Mehrtens, Office of Deborah O’Neill MP

A new Central Coast resident, Ms Naseby has been running workshops in Sydney for the past six years, including a one day event at the 2012 Sydney Writers Festival. In 2006, Murdoch Books published ‘Ursula

Her workshops are the result of questions she received from readers about the difficulties of writing so close to the bone. Ms Naseby said the aim of the workshops were to help participants tell their

story honestly and bravely. The week one workshop was titled Learning to Go, with the week two class called Marinate your Head with Research. Week three will see participants involved in the Using Detail to Tell It workshop and, in week four, Ms Naseby will run the workshop Looking from the Outside.

Central Coast Conservatorium cello student Sebastien Hibbard, a participant in the previous week’s Pearl Beach Showcase concert, said it was an exciting experience as he and his parents were in the audience for the Sunday afternoon David Pereira concert. “David Pereira is regarded as one of Australia’s finest cellists,� said Pearl Beach Progress Association publicity officer Ms Lynne Lillico.

From 1980 to 1987 David was principal cellist with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. He was also the founding cellist of the Australia Ensemble and, from 1990 until recent times, was senior lecturer at the Australian National University where he now teaches part-time. “Across his career David Pereira has c o m m i s s i o n e d , performed and recorded more cello music than perhaps any other Australian cellist,� said Ms Lillico. “For 10-year-old Sebastien Hibbard it was a thrilling moment as the previous day he had a very special meeting with David who confirmed that he would

be delighted to tutor Sebastien on a monthly basis. “Sebastien is an outstanding young musician who was recently awarded the Central Coast Conservatorium’s e n c o u r a g e m e n t scholarship for 2013. “He has also been awarded a scholarship to the Central Coast Grammar School from 2014 to 2019. “The Pearl Beach Progress Association congratulates Sebastien and wishes him every success in his chosen musical career. “The Association is delighted to announce that he will perform at the Pearl Beach August Glee Club Variety concerts,� said Ms Lillico.

New cricket nets

Coasties Cup at Adcock Park

Wyong Council Media

onstruction of the new cricket nets at Ourimbah has begun as part of an almost $1 million recreational facility upgrade in the area.

C

Wyong mayor Cr Doug Eaton recently joined Member for The Entrance Mr Chris Spence in an inspection of the construction of the new nets, which will be used by the Lisarow Ourimbah Cricket Club. Mayor Cr Eaton said he was proud of the work Council had been doing to upgrade a number of recreational facilities in the Ourimbah area. “Last month Chris Spence and I jointly opened a new amenities block at the Ourimbah soccer field, where Council had also spent money on new floodlights, drainage and levelling the playing field,” mayor Cr Eaton said. “The upgrade at the soccer club started four years ago by fully funding the floodlights to the value of $150,000, and working on drainage on the playing field. “All up, with funding from Council and the State Government, almost $500,000 was spent over four years to improve this facility. “We are also nearing

completion of the new state-of-the-art playground at the Sohier Park sporting complex, which includes a flying fox. “The new cricket nets at Sohier Park are the just the latest in close to $1 million worth of recreational improvements in the area.” Council contributed $30,000 from the Councillor Local Project Fund, and the State Government contributed $31,500 through the Community Building Partnership Program towards the construction of the nets. In addition, the club itself chipped in $5,000. “This project is an excellent example of the community coming together and how two levels of Government can work together for the benefit of the community,” mayor Cr Eaton said. “The old nets were nearing the end of their use by date and it’s great to see the new nets, which are probably the best on the Coast and should help the club attract new members. “I know the club’s members are excited about these new facilities and they will be delivered on time for the start of training for the next summer season.”

Bat & Ball

he Central Coast Baseball Association’s (CCBA) 19th Coasties Cup will be held at Adcock Park from July 5 to 7.

T

The annual tournament will host U10, U12 and U14 junior baseball teams from the Central Coast, Newcastle, Illawarra and Sydney Metropolitan areas. Twenty-five clubs and 40 teams are registered for this year’s event which is expected to attract over 1,500 people each day. CCBA publicity officer Ms Megan Morgan said she believed the event would help to build the profile of baseball on the Central Coast, a sport which has received little recognition in recent times. “Baseball was a very big sport here on the Coast,” Ms Morgan said. “Say 10 to15 years ago we had about 2,000 to 3,000 players across the Coast. “The Sydney Olympics in 2000 was the last event where baseball was hosted as an Olympic event and,

Lewis & Bayley

since then, it’s not really had the profile that other sports have.” Despite the underrepresentation, Ms Morgan said she believed events such as the Coasties Cup were helping to build the image of baseball as a unique sporting choice.

“There was a big announcement recently by the premier that the American Major League will be opening its season here in Sydney next March, so that’s really helping to boost the profile and generate more interest as an alternative sport for children.

Laura Bradley

“We had five new clubs register last year that we hadn’t seen before; we certainly are attracting new clubs all the time; it’s very successful.” Megan said she hoped that this year’s turnout would be reflective of the growing team numbers, as spectators are bound to enjoy watching the three day competition. “We’d like as many people who haven’t seen baseball played before to come along and experience the game. “It’s an exciting game to watch; it’s an exciting game to play, and it’s really addictive, once you’ve seen it you’re hooked. “We’d really like people from the Central Coast to come down to Adcock Park and just watch one or two games, you think it’s only children, but in the junior age range the games are a lot more fast paced than the adult baseball games, so they’re a lot more exciting, you’ll really enjoy it.” Games commence from 9am each day and finish at 4:30pm.

AFL legend and Origin

Community Kick In Ambassador Kevin Sheedy said the program provided a great way of giving back to those who have spent years contributing to the game they love. “All football clubs have volunteers who donate their time and commit a huge amount of their lives to their football club. “They are usually helping out behind the scenes and much of what they do goes unnoticed, but they are the heart and soul of their club. “The Origin Community

Local highlights in national budget V

ital infrastructure projects and new and continuing community support programs were highlights for locals in the 2013-14 Budget, according to Member for Robertson Ms Deborah O’Neill.

Ms O’Neill welcomed the new investment and thanked the Coast community for their involvement. “New funding in the Budget will make a real difference for people on the Coast. “Whether it means more support for people with a disability through DisabilityCare Australia, or less time stuck in traffic with funding for the F3-M2. “I am proud to share these announcements with the Coasties who have signed my petitions and called for these commitments, but there is still more work to do,” Ms O’Neill said. Ms O’Neill highlighted the importance of ensuring that the Budget promoted job creation and economic growth for Australia’s future prosperity. “This Government has made targeted and responsible decisions, in line with our Labor values, to ensure that we are a stronger, smarter and fairer Australia. “We will always act responsibly to prioritise jobs to ensure that the economy works for more people. “With DisabilityCare Australia set in stone in this budget, Coasties can now be assured that they will benefit from one of the biggest social reforms in Australian history. “This government is proud to be bringing this issue to the forefront of policy discussions and community attention. “In the seat of Robertson, approximately 2,497 locals may be eligible for support under DisabilityCare when the scheme rolls out across the country. “To better nurture our young creative talent, this Budget will allocate $23,500 to each electorate to encourage, support and celebrate the participation

of young people in creative, cultural, academic and community events or training. “Gosford Council will be eligible to apply for one of 14 competitive grants of up to $375,000 to deliver innovative online local government services using the NBN. “Our local Broadband for Seniors kiosk will be eligible to receive extra funding for a new computer and touchscreen monitor, ensuring seniors can benefit from a wider range of interactive computer applications and programs. “Each kiosk will also be eligible to receive a grant to deliver training and information sessions on the importance of cyber safety and personal security. “For pensioners wanting to downsize their homes, the sting of losing chunks of their pension because of the sale is often discouraging. “Under a trial outlined in the Budget, eligible pensioners who want to downsize, can put at least 80% of excess sale proceeds (up to a max of $200k) into a special account that is exempt from the pensioner means test so that it won’t affect their pension. “In the electorate of Robertson, this could benefit around 15,830 pensioners who are home-owners. “The Federal Government is investing $5.5 million in Childcare Flexibility Trials to test innovative approaches to provide families with access to more flexible care options. “Gosford and Peninsula Family Daycare have received extra support to extend hours to better cater to the needs of our local police officers. “To better support families receiving the partnered Parenting Payment, Newstart Allowance and Widow, Sickness or Partner Allowance, the Federal

Government is increasing the amount recipients can earn before their payments are affected. “This means people can take home $494 extra per year and for the first time the income free area will also be indexed to the Consumer Price Index (CPI) from 1 July 2015. “In the electorate of Robertson this will immediately benefit 1,038 people on income support currently earning over $62 a fortnight, and potentially benefit 3,994 more people should they move into work. “Labor established disability employment services in mid-2010 – getting rid of the cruel cap and quota based system that was put in place by the Howard government. “Now, everyone who needs help to find a job gets that help. “In the electorate of Robertson, this investment has seen 2,083 people placed in work since the program began. “This Federal Budget provides $84.5 million over four years for the provision of around 1,650 additional Commonwealth supported sub-bachelor and postgraduate places to universities. “In the electorate of Robertson, Labor’s uncapping of places has seen a 15.2% increase in students commencing University. “This is vital in ensuring that locals are able to access affordable university education, and are able to get the skilled jobs of the future,” said Ms O’Neill.

Prime Minister in Kariong to reaffirm F3 upgrade rime Minister Julia Gillard joined Federal Infrastructure and Transport Minister Anthony Albanese and Member for Robertson Ms Deb O’Neill in Kariong on Friday, May 24, to reaffirm Federal Labor’s $600 million plan to ease congestion and cut travel times along the F3.

P

Member for Robertson Ms Deborah O’Neill speaking in the Chamber at Parliament House

State and Federal governments agree on missing link funding

A

deal had been struck between the Federal Government and the NSW Government to build the F3-M2 Missing Link.

Work on the 8km long tunnel under Pennant Hills Rd could start as early as next year with $400 million each being provided by the Federal and State Governments, with the remaining cost to be met by the private sector. “I have been fighting for the F3 to M2 link ever since I first became the candidate for Robertson, and it is still one of the single biggest issues that people talk to me about today,” said Member for Robertson Ms Deborah

O’Neill. “More than 3,000 people have signed my petition to have this vital piece of infrastructure built and constant pressure from the Central Coast community has made this announcement possible. “This is a major project and will take investment from both government and non-government sources to ensure that it is delivered. “This project will make a massive difference for commuters heading to

Sydney every day. “It will mean less time stuck in traffic, and more time at home with family. “If we can make sure this important road project is built, it will mean tens of thousands of motorists will be able to forget about the nightmare that is currently Pennant Hills Rd,” Ms O’Neill said. This commitment builds on previous investments from the Federal Government for the project Continued on Page 3

The corridor is used by some 75,000 cars and 7,000 trucks a day, with freight volumes predicted to nearly double within the next two decades. The centrepiece of Federal Labor’s plan is $405 million to bring forward the construction of the “missing link” between the F3 and M2. As well as delivering smoother, quicker driving conditions, this new 7.7km dual two lane road tunnel beneath Pennant Hills Rd would also greatly reduce traffic congestion through Sydney’s northern suburbs. The project will be

delivered in partnership with the NSW Government, which will provide the same amount of upfront funding. The balance of the required funding will come from the private sector, with the project expected to go to market within months. In addition to making the F3 to M2 Link a reality, Federal Labor’s plan also funds targeted improvements to tackle congestion and improve safety along the existing F3, including widening the section between Tuggerah and Doyalson, widening the section between Kariong and Somersby, upgrading

the Kariong Interchange and upgrading the Weakleys Dr intersection. The staged delivery of these projects could begin as soon as next year and will be jointly funded by the Federal and NSW governments, with each contributing $195.8 million. The extensive upgrade of the road corridor between Sydney and Central Coast is part of the much larger Federally-funded capital works program currently being rolled out across the State.

$13 million upgrade officially opened T

he $13 million upgrade to the Central Coast Highway and Wisemans Ferry Rd intersection was fully opened to traffic on Friday, May 24, two months ahead of schedule and on budget.

Minister for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Mr Chris Hartcher said the intersection upgrade funded by the NSW Government would benefit motorists by improving safety, reducing delays and lessening congestion. “This key intersection provides a major road link

between suburbs of the Central Coast and the F3 to Newcastle and Sydney,” Mr Hartcher said. “Importantly the upgraded intersection improves safety for motorists and cyclists by separating traffic movements and minimising merges. “The upgrade has

extended the existing right turn lane and provided a second right turn lane from the Central Coast Highway into Wisemans Ferry Rd. “And in another benefit to road users, the intersection has opened two months ahead of schedule.” Member for Gosford Mr Chris Holstein said work on

the intersection upgrade commenced in June last year and was carried out by Roads and Maritime Services. “Minor finishing work including improved street lighting, building shared paths, final line marking and median upgrades is expected to be completed in late July,” Mr Holstein said. “Traffic control and reduced speed limits will

be in place where needed to ensure the safety of workers, motorists and other road users.” Further features of the upgrade included an additional left turn lane from Wisemans Ferry Rd into the Central Coast Highway controlled by traffic lights, a continuous lane on Wisemans Ferry Rd for southbound vehicles exiting F3, removing the need to merge, a right turn

bay from Wisemans Ferry Rd onto the northbound on ramp of the F3 to separate traffic and an off road cycle path. “I thank motorists and nearby residents for their ongoing patience throughout the upgrade and while this essential finishing work is carried out,” Mr Holstein said.

Springfield Quarry discussions postponed osford Council has agreed to postpone discussions on the future of the Springfield Quarry until a detailed report addressing community concerns can be provided.

G

A report will come back to Council outlining options for alternative sites for a resource recovery facility, options for the gradual rehabilitation of the site and the ownership of the land and adjacent parcels. Council will explore a number of alternatives for the use of this site, now and into the future, balancing the financial impact of resource recovery activities and ensuring the environmental concerns of residents are addressed. The quarry was initially purchased by Council in 1997 and operated as a sandstone quarry supplying materials for some of Council’s road works. More recently, Council lodged a planning proposal for a Resource Recovery Facility on the site which caused wide spread community disquiet.

Cr Ward echoed Cr Morris’s views and said he didn’t understand why the quarry had to be located in a residential area. “It was very isolated in 1971, it is now very built up,” said Cr Ward. Cr Gabby Bowles said she understood the issue was an emotional one for a lot of people. “It’s fair enough that they’d like to move on with their lives and get back some of their tranquillity,’ said Cr Bowles. “But there is work that will need to take place on this site to remediate it. “That land as it is now is not in a position as it stands to be turned back over to our community. “It’s quite overgrown,” said Cr Bowles. The report on rehabilitation, alternative sites and ownership of adjacent land will come back to Council no later than September. As a result of the deferment, the site will be inactive, with the exception of the removal of the current won materials and storage of material, until a final decision is made. The decision to postpone

the discussion was not unanimous, with Crs Bob Ward, Hillary Morris and Vicki Scott opposing the amendment moved by Cr Chris Burke. Cr Morris, who starred the Notice of Motion, said

Springfield Quarry had been around since 1971 and Springfield “is obviously a very different place now”. “The purchase of Springfield Quarry was negotiated specifically for inclusion in the Coastal

Open Space Scheme (COSS) and the purchase price reflected this. “I would like to see the return of the quarry to COSS and the community and put an end to this,” said Cr Morris.

“From all reports, grade four was a little unlucky being eliminated in the first round of the play-offs but there is no doubt that all our bowlers will benefit from this experience and they will be back next year hoping to be more competitive,” said Toukley RSL Men’s Bowling Club publicity officer Mr Barry Middleton. “This is the time when we must evaluate the

performances of all pennant bowlers and ascertain how we can make improvements to future nominated grades. “This unenviable task of defining grades and nominating bowlers becomes the responsibility of the selectors, in which they consider to be our strongest, reliable and compatible bowlers. “There is no doubt that a selector’s job is a very difficult position to contend with “This situation is further compounded by the fact that some bowlers may hold a different opinion to the selectors but some never nominate for a selectors job.

“So please accept the decision made by the selectors. “Remember these men are bowlers and are a dedicated group who are willing to volunteer and give their additional time and energy for the benefit of the bowling club and its members. “Always remember some bowlers may not get selected for Pennants, some bowlers will. “However, we all should be good sports to play sport and by so doing we strive for harmony within the club and enjoy representing your various clubs,” said Mr Middleton.

Rugby League

Tigers secure top four ranking after win over United he Entrance Tigers rugby league team consolidated their top four ranking in this season’s Massey Cup competition on Sunday, June 23, following a 30-6 victory over Burwood North Ryde United in miserable conditions at the TG Milner Field.

T

The game was three minutes old when Tigers’ five eight Jake Fitzpatrick bombed into the corner for Jordan Tongahai and Scott Peachey to fly high. The ball skewed out of their collision and was scooped up by Rhys Pritchard for the opening try of the afternoon. In difficult conditions for the back division, Burwood left winger Tongahai fumbled a further kick three minutes later. From the ensuing set, centre Mason Harrison launched himself past United fullback Uluibau to pounce on an Arana Taumata grubber, securing the Central Coast team’s second try. Fitzpatrick once again missed the conversion but the Tigers were ahead by eight after as many minutes. Immediately beyond this early flurry of points, the game settled into a slip and slide slog as conditions deteriorated even further, making ball control near impossible. Thirteen minutes shy of the break, the former Sydney Roosters’ top

grader Rhys Pritchard restarted the scoreboard, nabbing his second try after another Jake Fitzpatrick bomb had rained down on Burwood’s shell-shocked left corner. The conversion pleased the touch judges and the visitors led 14-0. Worse was to follow for Burwood when, from the kick-off return, Tigers’ winger Harley Ridge was lifted and back slammed in an awkward looking tackle that saw referee Kasey Badger send United pivot Joshua Phillips off for the duration. Joe Rokoqo lifted the home crowds’ spirits just before half time when he twisted through a throng of orange, black and white to muscle his way into the right corner. A sideline conversion from BJ Nathan left the mid game score line reading 146. The early exchanges of the second period produced somewhat of a soggy stalemate as earnest endeavour succumbed to the realities of a hopelessly slippery Steeden. Hooker Troy Woodley managed to keep a firm grip on the pill in the 55th minute, pushing The Entrance further ahead when he dummied as if to throw the ball over the grandstand before diving through the ruck for a well taken try. Woodley’s effort was largely set up by a Ryan Dalziel charge on the previous play followed by the big props’ slick play the

Tigers centre Mason Harrison offloads to Jamen McLeod ball. A brace of Tigers’ tries followed in the final 10 minutes and were scored through a tiring Burwood North Ryde defence which had battled on gamely despite being a man down. The first of these late tries went to skipper Alan Munro off yet another attacking Fitzpatrick kick, before the final points of the afternoon fell to right winger Scott Peachey after Rhys Pritchard had shown Socceroo-like skills to dribble the ball down a narrow blind. The Entrance will return home to EDSAC Oval on Sunday, June 30, to take on the North Sydney feeder team Asquith in the battle of the F3.

Constitutional recognition of local government is vital for federal funding he mayors of both Wyong and Gosford Councils have encouraged residents to support a campaign to give constitutional recognition to local government.

T

A referendum will be held at the upcoming September 14 Federal election and both Gosford and Wyong Councils have joined 85% of Councils around Australia to support the campaign for constitutional recognition. A high court decision ruled the federal government cannot directly fund local government, which puts federal government funding across the Central Coast at risk. If constitutional recognition is supported, this would allow for direct federal funding of local government. “The present climate means government grants are decreasing and it would be disastrous if we lost any type of federal funding,” Wyong mayor Cr Doug Eaton said. “Local Government is the only level of government in Australia that is not financially recognised in the Australian Constitution and our income funding is limited in relation to the services we are expected to provide to our community. “Government funding is such a vital part of any

Council’s income and Wyong Shire Council has always been grateful for any funding we have received from the Federal and State Governments. “The Constitutional Recognition of Local Government will enable the Federal Government to have the capacity to fund Councils directly to achieve national objectives at a local level, such as major infrastructure projects and job creation ventures,” he added. For the referendum to be successful there needs to be a majority of yes votes from voters in a

We

majority of states. Gosford mayor Cr Lawrie McKinna encouraged all residents to support the referendum at the upcoming election. “Local Councils, including Gosford and Wyong, often rely heavily on federal funding to improve our roads and community facilities,” mayor Cr McKinna said. “By voting yes in the referendum, residents are voting to continue to access this funding, which contributes to many major projects in our local areas,” he added. Both Councils received

an $80 million grant from the Federal Government for the Mardi-Mangrove Link project, which has secured the region’s water supply. In Wyong, the Federal Government’s Caring for Country grant provided $20 million for the Tuggerah Lakes Estuary Management Program and $5 million for two new surf clubs at Shelly and Soldiers Beach. Other projects include $520,000 for a playground at Canton Beach which would be able to be used by visually impaired children, $400,000 for six new netball courts at Wyong’s Baker Park and $200,000 to upgrade community halls around the Wyong area and a number of grants to help complete Wyong’s shared pathway network. “Quite simply, federal grants are important for a number of projects right across the community,” mayor Cr Eaton said. “That is why it is so important people vote yes at the referendum to ensure this continues,” he concluded.

he NSW Government has approved a rezoning in the Lake Macquarie local government area with the potential to deliver 1,250 new dwellings. The rezoning at Wyee, which was approved on Friday, May 24, is a step towards establishing a framework to progress the long-standing “paper subdivision” in the town, which dates back to the early 20th century. The Department of Planning and Infrastructure’s Hunter and Central Coast regional director Mr Michael Leavey said the decision was in line with an aim of the 2006 Lower Hunter Regional Strategy to support housing supply in the Wyee area. This regional strategy is currently under review. The Department has approved the local environmental plan rezoning amendment proposed by the Lake Macquarie City Council for about 164 hectares of land adjoining the existing township and its railway station. The land in the rezoning area is owned by the Wyee Development Fund, Lake

lake improvements and put a concerted effort into drainage issues that previously have been of a lower priority. The changes also mean there will be no unit dealing specifically with the environment. Instead, Wyong Council general manager Mr Michael Whittaker said the environment would become entrenched in the roles of 1,200 council staff members. “Having [the environment] in one area makes people think it’s only one person’s job,” Mr Whittaker said. “We need everyone to understand that they have responsibility for the environment.” The Sport, Leisure and Recreation Unit will become Community, Business and Tourism under the restructure and will focus on those community services that are a business. This will incorporate pools, recreation centres, childcare and in future, cemeteries. The unit will also

Hard fought clash between Gosford and Terrigal

Two big matches in round 12

Larry Thomson, Central Coast Rugby Union

he Central Coast Rugby Union round 11 Match of the Day on Saturday, June 22, saw an intense and hard fought clash between Gosford and Terrigal at Gosford Showground.

T

Gosford were in control for most of the match on the scoreboard but in play itself the match was evenly fought. Terrigal had much of the possession in the game but simply could not score the tries until late in the match when the game was all but over. Gosford had more penetration to their play and, although struggling at times to get and maintain possession, when they did, they put it to good use. The first try of the match was typical of the early stages of the game. Terrigal were on the attack and an intercept by Gosford winger Adam Clift saw him race to score a converted try for Gosford for the home side to take a 7-0 lead against the run of play. A penalty goal to Gosford centre Tim Hill increased their lead early on to 10-0. Terrigal then responded with three penalty goals to their fullback Rob Richardson which reduced the lead to 10-9 and the game was up for grabs. Gosford gained an advantage just before halftime when, from a good scrum win, Gosford threw the ball wide and Adam Clift crossed for his second try in the half. The conversion of this try close to the break took Gosford to a 17-9 lead at the halftime interval.

Gosford went further ahead early in the second half when they crossed for their third try, and scored their fourth try not long after. So, in what was a tight game, Gosford had raced to a significant lead of 29-9. They were in a comfortable position on the scoreboard but it was Terrigal who were still playing good rugby and never gave in. The score line of 29-9 remained the score for much of the half before Terrigal crossed for three late tries. Gosford had two players in the sin bin at this stage which opened up the game for the Terrigal attack enabling them to score the late tries. Best players for Gosford were backs David Von Kotze and Tim Hill, while flanker Hugo Pike was everywhere in attack and defence. Winger Adam Clift finished well and was able to cross for a final tally of three tries. Terrigal had several good players but none were better than halfback Doug Angus, prop Daniel Hilton and number eight Rob Heads, who was able to cross for two individual tries. The win took Gosford to the top of the competition ladder while Terrigal sit in sixth spot. The other two matches resulted in big wins to the visiting teams. At Woy Woy Oval, Warnervale ran out winners over Woy Woy by 66 points to 10. Warnervale were in total control from start to finish and were able to cross for a total of 10 tries in the match. Flanker Moana Talakai dominated proceeding and crossed for four tries.

He was well supported by five-eight Josh Rennie who scored three tries and flanker Jack Croucher who, in his initial First Grade match, had a great game for the visitors. Woy Woy were best served by back Andrew McNamara. He never stopped trying and filled in several positions in the backline during the game. The win saw Warnervale cement fourth spot on the ladder while Woy Woy are yet to get their first win of the season. The other big score of the day saw Ourimbah defeat The Entrance at Joseph Banks Oval by 58-3. Ourimbah were in total control from start to finish. Ourimbah led by 34-3 at halftime and continued in the same vein in the second half to go on for a good win. Ourimbah centre Brenton Law directed play for his side brilliantly and crossed for four tries. He was well supported by the youthful Josh Cook and veteran Brett Marchant. The Entrance would have expected to have performed better on the day based on recent efforts but it was not to be. Their best players were Brendan Storey and Jarrod Grange. Ourimbah currently sit in third spot on the ladder and will definitely challenge for major honours at the end of the year. Avoca Beach defeated Northlakes in both lower grade matches at Heazlett Park. Avoca Beach proved they will be a threat in these grades as a result of these wins.

ound 12 of the Central Coast Rugby Union competition which will be held on Saturday, June 29, will see two important matches, in terms of who makes the finals series at the end of the year.

R

Terrigal are at home to Warnervale at The Haven Oval in a game that Terrigal must win if they are to reach the finals. If Warnervale can win, they will go a long way to reaching their first ever semi-finals. The other equally important clash is between Kariong and Gosford at Kariong Oval. Despite Gosford being cemented in the top four, Kariong are just out of it and must win to keep in touch with the competition leaders. The game between Terrigal and Warnervale is expected to be a cliff-hanger. Terrigal have had a frustrating year in that they have been so close to victory on numerous occasions but simply have not been able to get past the winning post. They have played some great rugby in recent games

but have been unable to score points. Terrigal have a good all round team and will need to get a good start and maintain the lead. Warnervale are having their best season ever and have a forward pack that rivals any on the Central Coast. They are big and strong and have led the way for their team this year. Warnervale had a strong win over Woy Woy in round 11 but know that, while they are in fourth spot on the ladder, have Terrigal and Kariong breathing down their necks. A win on Saturday for Terrigal against Warnervale will bridge that gap between the teams. Gosford are currently on top of the competition ladder and had a good win over Terrigal in round 11, however, Kariong have not lost a match for several weeks and were dominant in defeating Gosford three weeks ago in a deferred game. Kariong are out of the top four at present but with a win on Saturday can bridge the gap between themselves and fourth placed Warnervale. Kariong are coming off a bye so will be freshened up.

They have experience in players such a prop Shannon Beavan but also have several younger players who have come from their Colts. Gosford are getting back to full strength so will be far more formidable on Saturday but with the match being played on the mountain the result could go either way. Ourimbah and Woy Woy will meet at Ourimbah Rugby Park in what should result in an easy win to the home side. Ourimbah were convincing in round 11 and one cannot see Woy Woy troubling the scorer this week. Ourimbah have no obvious weaknesses in their squad. They have the forward pack to win and maintain possession but also have the backline to put this ball to effective use. Woy Woy, if they can compete for the full 80 minutes, can make a game of this match but based on performances in recent weeks one cannot see the home side being threatened. The Entrance and Northlakes will meet in second and third at Joseph Banks Oval.

Mariners Academy defeated by Sutherland Sharks he Sutherland Sharks now sit top of the table in the 2013 IGA National Premier Leagues NSW Mens 1 after an emphatic 6-1 win over a 10 man Central Coast Mariners Academy outfit at Pluim Park on Saturday, June 22.

T

The opening 10 minutes of play were evenly matched and both sides had a half chance at either end. The inform Panagiotis Nikas was already proving to be a handful upfront and Adriano Pellegrino embarked on his typical runs up the guts of the pitch. In recent weeks the Academy players admitted that their lack of discipline in the backline had resulted in the leaking of soft goals round after round. The desperation and mindset of the defensive make up was clear as Daniel Bragg dropped back to help out on several occasions and Liam O’Dell, who picked up the match’s first card, made some big tackles in the opening stages. The physicality continued throughout the fiery affair with a total of six cards

awarded, all to Mariners’ players. It didn’t take long for Sutherland to find a hole in the Mariners’ defence as they scored on the back of some tidy play down the left side through Jamie McMaster who played in a perfect ball to the feet of Olsen. Olsen picked the ball up from close range and tucked the opportunity away to have the game’s opener in the 24th minute. Three minutes later, the Sharks struck again as a loopy cross-floated in from the same side that made its way past David Bradasevic and to the feet of Nathan Elasi who had enough time to take a touch and successfully finish which doubled the away sides’ lead. The uphill battle continued for the Mariners Academy who went down to 10 men in the 44th minute as one of their main playmakers, Daniel Bragg, was sent for an early shower for an illegal challenge in the middle of the park. After both sides came out of the sheds for the second half, the Sharks were looking sharp and ready to expose their opponent’s one player disadvantage.

As the Sharks tactically played out from the back from Perry Moustakas, the ball continuously found the energetic Nikas who troubled the Mariners all night. A rare counter attack lodged by the Mariners almost had them back in the game in the 53rd minute as the lightning quick Ridge Mapu created space for himself on a powerful run and slipped through a ball for substitute Louis Bozanic who shot with the outside of his right boot but failed to hit the target. The away side continued to pressure and it was Olsen in the 57th minute who found himself on the score sheet, once again with another simple goal from a left flank cross as he finished from close range to give the Sharks a three goal cushion. The third unanswered goal did not deter the home side straight away, who created movement up front with several more chances created by Bozanic and Payne. But it was the lurking Jed Prater who would pick up the Mariners’ first goal of the night and bury a Payne cross from close range in the 61st minute of play, making the score 3-1.

When an emergency strikes, we’re there to help

In the 76th minute, Nikas looked to add one to the highlight reel as he curled a free kick that was top corner bound, but Bradasevic leapt up to make the save of the match with two hands to deny the strike. The final 10 minutes of play were mayhem for the Central Coast Mariners Academy who rained goals at their end of the pitch which allowed Sutherland to again double their lead off the back of three tap ins from Olsen who capped off his hat trick, Nikas with a hard earned goal and McMaster that finished them off. Central Coast’s Matthew Crowell said he was bitterly disappointed with the loss. “The send-off was embarrassing, the referee is killing us, it was a bit of lack of discipline but the call was a joke. “We made two mistakes and gave them two early goals, we get a man sent off, the third goal killed us, our

goal got us back but it was always going to be difficult. “We need to keep 11 men on the pitch, we need to man up, we just have to stick together and keep going, it’s not over and it’s been a tough season.” Match Statistics Central Coast Mariners Academy: 1 (16 Jed Prater 61’) Sutherland Sharks: 6 (8 Nicholas Olsen 34’, 57’ & 87’, Nathan Elasi 27’, 23 Panagiotis Nikas 90’, 10 Jamie McMaster 90+3’) Date: 22/06/2013 Venue: Pluim Park Referee: Michael Weiner Assistant Referees: Nicholas Backo and Sarah Ho Fourth Official: Karl Davies Central Coast Mariners Academy: 20 David Bradasevic, 8 Daniel Bragg, 2 Matthew Crowell, 9 James Monie (11 Louis

Bozanic’s transfer complete Central Coast Mariners Media

liver Bozanic’s transfer to FC Luzern has now been finalised with documents between the Swiss Super League side and Central Coast Mariners FC executed late on the afternoon of Wednesday, June 19.

O

Bozanic will his football at

play the

18,000-capacity Swissporarena for the next two seasons. The 24-year-old midfielder played a total of 87 competitive matches for the Mariners, 85 of which came between 2010 and 2013 following his return to the current Hyundai A-League Champions from England’s Reading FC. Central Coast Mariners Group general manager Mr Peter Turnbull thanked

FC Luzern for fulfilling their transfer requirements. “Over the past few days FC Luzern have moved to ensure the completion of the transfer and we would like to extend our thanks to their management for fulfilling the requirements,” Turnbull said. “We wish FC Luzern and Oliver Bozanic the best of luck for their 2013-14 Swiss Super League campaign.”

Matt Simon returns to Mariners

Central Coast Mariners Media

arksman Matt Simon, 27, will re-join the Central Coast Mariners for season nine of the Hyundai A-League after he signed a one-season deal with the Club on Thursday, May 16.

M

No stranger to Central Coast supporters, Simon left the Mariners in January last year for K-League Classic side Chunnam Dragons. However, an unfortunate string of injuries throughout his time in Korea Republic ended in him agreeing a mutual release from the Dragons earlier this year. Eager to return to his best, Simon opted to return to the familiar surrounds of the Central Coast under the guidance of Graham Arnold and his astute staff. The 2008 Beijing Olympian said he believed his first professional Club could help nurture him back to the level of form which led to him being courted by, and eventually transferred to, the Gwangyang-based outfit

last year. “I am really excited to come back to the Club,” Simon said. “I had a tough time in Korea with injury. “But it’s a great time to come back and I am happy to be joining the Champions.” Simon said knowing he would again be working with top professionals who understand how his body ticks was a key factor in his decision to sign on with Central Coast. “I couldn’t quite get my body right in Korea,” he explained. “‘Nealo’ (Mariners Physiotherapist Andrew Nealon), ‘Clarky’ (Mariners Head of Sports Science Andrew Clark) and ‘Arnie’ (Mariners head coach Graham Arnold) are the best in the business, and 100% working with them again was a big part of my decision of coming home. “I have been back on the park and have been using the Centre of Excellence with Clarky and Nealo over the last three weeks. Central Coast Mariners

head coach Graham Arnold said he believed the Mariners had secured a major playing coup by having Simon rejoin the Club. “It is great to have Matty back,” Arnold said. “He’s a local player, a fan favourite, was born and developed on the Coast, and it’s great the supporters will get the chance to see him in our colours again. “At the peak of his powers, Matt is one of the A-League’s best players. Central Coast Mariners chairman Mr Peter Turnbull said: “We’re delighted to have Matt Simon back with the Club.” “As he is a local boy, we hope his signing will further enhance the grassroots work we will be doing over the off-season in the Central Coast community.” Despite playing just 14 matches for the Mariners in season 2011-12, Simon shared the Club’s Golden Boot Award alongside Bernie Ibini and Patrick Zwaanswijk having scored seven goals in an impressive first half of the season.

Mariners selected in All Stars squad

Football Federation Australia

he Foxtel A-League All Stars voting process has concluded with four Central Coast Mariners players selected.

T

The Foxtel A-League All Stars will play Manchester United at ANZ Stadium in Sydney on Saturday, July 20. The weighted voting system gave 50% to the fan vote, 20% to the Expert Panel vote, 20% to the players via the PFA Team of the Year selection and 10% to coach Ange Postecoglou. More than 30,000 fans voted by submitting their starting 11, plus four substitutes. The Expert Panel included Han Berger, Craig Moore, Tony Vidmar, Mark Bosnich, Stan Lazaridis, Andy Harper, Tom Smithies and Michael Lynch, who all named their starting 11, plus four substitutes. Football Federation Australia CEO Mr David Gallop said the Foxtel A-League All Stars voting process was a huge success in engaging with fans and launching the All Stars concept. “Our first priority is making sure the All Stars are

connected to A-League fans and the 30,000 votes cast shows there’s a high level of engagement,” said Gallop. “The Expert Panel choices created lots of interest and was hotly debated in online forums and of course the players had a strong voice via the PFA Team of the Year voting. “Now that Ange has lodged his preferences it’s great to release the final voting results. “The task now is to take this selection process and make the team a reality on July 20 against Manchester United. “There will always be issues with injuries, availability and international transfers, but we will work hard on the selection process.” At this point, defenders Patrick Zwaanswijk (retirement) and Adama Traore (injury rehabilitation) are all but ruled out, while Marco Rojas and Mathew Ryan are unavailable because of transfers to foreign clubs. All Stars coach Ange Postecoglou will name his final squad on July 13 ahead of a week-long preparation camp in Sydney. Under the selection process, Postecoglou

will refer to the weighted voting list of players when considering replacements for injured or unavailable players. Goalkeeper: Ante Covic (Western Sydney Wanderers) Defenders: Pedj Bojic (Sydney FC), Nikolai ToporStanley (Western Sydney Wanderers), Patrick Zwaanswijk (Central Coast Mariners), Adama Traore (Melbourne Victory) Midfielders: Thomas Broich (Brisbane Roar), Mark Milligan (Melbourne Victory), Michael McGlinchey (Central Coast Mariners) Strikers: Archie Thompson (Melbourne Victory), Alessandro Del Piero (Sydney FC), Marco Rojas (Melbourne Victory) Substitutes: Mathew Ryan (Central Coast Mariners), Shinji Ono (Western Sydney Wanderers), Youssouf Hersi (Western Sydney Wanderers), Trent Sainsbury (Central Coast Mariners) Coach: Ange Postecoglou (Melbourne Victory)

Kido Mingara Academy wins 10 medals at Australian Judo Titles

Umina PCYC boxers represent NSW

Joel Keegan, Umina Beach PCYC

hree Umina Beach PCYC boxers recorded victories while representing NSW in the inaugural Mayfire Challenge recently.

T

The Challenge was an interstate tournament between the best boxers in Tasmania and the NSW PCYC Boxing Academy. “A massive crowd in the lovely scenic town of Burnie came to watch their local boys and girls give the NSW boxers a hiding but were to be sent home mostly disappointed as the NSW team rallied to win the night five bouts to four,” said Umina Beach PCYC boxing coach Joel Keegan. “The baby of Umina PCYC at just 11-years-old, Thomas Deakin, a star for the Kincumber Colts and on his way to being a star in the boxing game, got the NSW team off to a cracking start with an 11-5 victory. “His opponent, Tasmanian Champion Kaleb Garth, a willing and capable boxer, had little answer for the hand speed and slick footwork coming from young Deakin. “By the end of the third round, the local boy had almost had enough of the barrage of well delivered combinations. “It was a very impressive performance by Thomas, in front of a hostile crowd as

well. “It was also a great moment to see his father Steve coach him and others that night. “Steve is one of a few fathers who have chosen to help out at the club and come on board as coaches. “These guys are talented people who make huge contributions to our program,” said Keegan. Jason Fawcett, the current Australian Amateur Boxing Champion, went up against Bailey Wells, who had a controversial points victory over the young Umina lad two months earlier. “Fawcett, who plays rugby league for the Woy Woy Roosters as well, was always going to be hard to beat in this mood, dominating the bout from the start,” said Keegan. “A natural puncher with a great eye, Fawcett landed his heavy right hand enough times to make the decision easy for judges.” Ben Howell, the veteran in the team at 25, took on Joe Corner, a middleweight with some recent victories over handy opponents. “Howell had some good form going into the fight, with two great performances at the recent Australian Health and Fitness Titles in particular, so fireworks were also expected from the big punching Umina boxer. “A dominant first round by the Peninsula boy had some

thinking an early night was likely, as he had Corner in massive trouble with several big bombs landing flush. “However, momentum swung sharply in the second round back to the Tasmanian as he began to connect with his own combinations. “Umina boy Howell, stood tall in the final round, rediscovering the dominance of the first round, making the decision pretty clear for all judges. “It was a great battle between two boxers with plenty to offer,” said Keegan. While the boys were representing NSW in Tasmania, team mate Satali Tevi-Fuimaono was taking part in a Boxing Australia preparation camp at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) for boxers selected to go to the World Juniors in Kiev, Ukraine, in September. “This camp had the best fighters in the country, and they were all tested over eight days of training and competition,” said Keegan. “It was very heartening to see Satali win every testing protocol set by the AIS among the group and also dominate both Competition Bouts, including one against a current junior world champion. “Again, this was real validation for the hard work this great kid puts in and the many great coaches who put in a lot of work to this program.”

She also received silver medals in both the U21 and senior divisions, and was selected for the Cadet World Championships in Miami, Florida. Also selected for the world championships was 15-year-old Neeson Naidoo from Wyong. Consistent solid training preparation paid off, with Neeson winning gold in the U55kg cadet division. He also scored bronze in the U21 competition. Liam Yokoyama received bronze in the U66kg U21 division and Daniel Villani

took out bronze in the U36kg senior boys round.

Among the 111 riders were a number of young riders competing in their first competitive pony club event. “With the grounds looking a picture due to the hard work of the club volunteers, the day got underway with four hacking events,” said Wyong Pony Club president Mr Simon Wood. “Equestrian hack, rider, pony club mount and bare saddle classes all tested the rider and horse combinations before the four guest judges. “The show jumping competition was an accumulator event where the

jumps increase in difficulty as the course progresses. “The course, designed by the Zone Chief instructor Peter Petherbridge, proved to be a challenging and enjoyable course for all grades, E to B. “The afternoon saw sporting events run with barrels, post a letter, square yard race and right angle bounce. “All four events proved to be hotly contested with many decided by tenths of seconds and a number of riders registering state qualifying times for barrels. “At the end of the day it was the Ourimbah based Tall Timbers Pony Club whose 21 riders closely edged out Wyong’s 20 riders to take out Champion Club of the day,” said Mr Wood. “The next interclub day on the program will see riders head to Matcham Valley Pony Club on July 21.

The club is one of 14 across Australia now in the running to win the experience of presenting the Championship medals at the 2013 ANZ Netball Championship Grand Final (if played in Australia). Now in its third year, the ANZ Junior Club of the Year program has provided more than $100,000 in prizes to netball clubs around Australia and has once again proven popular with junior clubs nation-wide. Throughout the 2013 ANZ Championship season, hundreds of junior netball clubs submitted colourful and creative entries into the ANZ Junior Club of the Year community grants program, requesting funds to help purchase equipment, uniforms and tickets to ANZ Championship matches.

received a $2,000 grant, as well as equipment to the value of $1,000, tickets to an ANZ Championship match and the opportunity to participate in on-court activities. The 2013 ANZ Junior Club of the Year winner will be selected and crowned by ANZ Netball Ambassador and Australian netball legend Sharelle McMahon. “I’ve seen first-hand the support ANZ provides to both

grassroots and professional netball in Australia,” said McMahon. “The ANZ Junior Club of the Year competition is just one fantastic example. “I’m very impressed by Central Coast and the other finalists. “The calibre of the applications this year has been amazing. “It’s going to be difficult to pick a winner and I’m definitely losing some sleep

over it, but I can’t wait to announce the 2013 ANZ Junior Club of the Year and meet the team.”

The Wallabies were defeated 23-21 in front of a new ground record crowd of 52,499. The Wallabies would have won the match had they not missed four kicks at goal, two of which were in

the last ten minutes. The match was lit up by two of the best solo tries in recent memory, to George North for the Lions and Israel Folau for the Wallabies (twice), who scored individual tries as the Lions held on for the nail-biting victory, after the Wallabies were severely disrupted by four injuries to key backline players. Ashley-Cooper was replaced with four minutes to go by reserve scrumhalf Nick Phipps. The teams now move on to Melbourne at Etihad Stadium on Saturday, June 29, for what is sure to be a thrilling second test of the three.

Rogic features in win over Iraq Football Federation Australia

ormer Central Coast Mariners’ player Tom Rogic was called on as a substitute in the 60th minute of the Socceroos’ match against Iraq on Tuesday, June 18.

The match was the final qualification match for Australia’s group with the top two earning direct qualification to the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. Rogic troubled the Iraqi defence before Josh Kennedy scored the winning goal in the 1-0 victory. Needing a win to assure a spot at a third straight World Cup, the Socceroos looked like blowing their chance

as the stubborn visitors held firm for more than 82 minutes. But in his first Socceroos appearance in 19 months, Kennedy came off the bench to nod home Mark Bresciano’s cross seven minutes from time to send the crowd of 80,532 into delirium. Australia boss Holger Osieck received a few boos from the home fans when he opted to substitute favourite son Tim Cahill for Kennedy just a few minutes earlier. But the decision proved a masterstroke as Kennedy did what he does best, giving Iraq ‘keeper Noor Sabri no chance with a wellplaced header from just six

yards out. The nail-biting victory meant the Socceroos finished second in their group behind Japan and avoided going into the lottery of the play-offs later this year. Knowing a win over the inexperienced Iraqi’s would ensure Australia’s berth for a third straight World Cup, there was a sense of excited anticipation amongst the fans before kick-off. Searching for ways to unlock the stubborn Iraqi defence, Holger Osieck introduced young star Tom Rogic on the hour and the Celtic midfielder immediately lifted the tempo. The Socceroos thought

they had the crucial breakthrough 25 minutes from time when a poor headed clearance landed perfectly for Kruse to volley home from just outside the box. But celebrations soon turned to despair as Iranian referee Faghani Alireza had already blown for a foul by Ognenovski in the lead-up. The close call only added to the tension, which soon turned to shock among the home fans as Cahill made way for Kennedy. And the beanpole striker took just six minutes to make an impact, sending his header past Sabri to get celebrations underway. Photo: Paul Barkley-LookPro
