Finally, bus stop finished ■ Pheasant Creek’s bus shelter is finally completed, and local passengers now have some protection from the wild weather, says Eildon MLA Cindy McLeish. "I am very pleased that bus users will be safer now the shelter has finally been constructed," Ms McLeish said. Ms McLeish called on the Victorian Government last November to provide funding for the new shelter. "It's critical that locals are provided with a new bus shelter not only for their comfort, but for their own safety and the safety of road users," Ms McLeish told State Parliament at the time. Ms McLeish said students were being forced to wait in cars to shield themselves from the rain which often created traffic management problems. The State Government responded to Ms McLeish's request stating that a funding grant had been approved for the purchase and installation of the shelter. However, it took nearly six months for the shelter to be erected. "It is totally unreasonable that it can take this long for a simple bus shelter to be constructed, so long after funding has been approved," Ms McLeish said. "I would like to thank the community members who advocated for this new shelter and congratulate them on helping to achieve this outcome," Ms McLeish said.

Power prices soar

■ State MLA Cindy McLeish is calling on local residents to be extra vigilant with their household costs following reports that more customers are having their power supply switched off. "Daniel Andrews's reckless policy to shut down the Hazelwood Power Station has made energy prices unaffordable for more Victorians," Ms McLeish said. According to the Essential Services Commission's latest report, some Victorians will be forced to pay an extra $357 on their energy bills this year. The soaring price of energy has led to 12,718 Victorian households being disconnected from an essential service, 2000 more compared to the March quarter. "Under Daniel Andrews, Victorians have reached breaking point,” Ms McLeish said.

■ Smoking will be banned in all outdoor dining areas where food is available in Victoria from August 1. This will affect a number of hospitality venues in Alexandra, Eildon, Kinglake, Marysville, Whittlesea, Yea and Yarck. Currently in Victoria smoking is banned in all enclosed workplaces and certain public spaces where people gather and may be exposed to second hand smoke under the Tobacco Act 1987. Murrindindi Shire Council's Community Services Portfolio Councillor Sandice McAulay said the changes to the Act will now apply to premises such as restaurants, cafes, takeaway shops and licensed premises such as pubs, including courtyard dining areas and footpath dining. "Victoria is the last state to bring in smoking bans for outdoor dining areas, and this is a welcome development," Cr McAulay said. These bans will also be in place for food fairs and other organised outdoor events including community or street festivals. "According to the Victorian Government more than 73 per cent of Victorians support this reform. Murrindindi Shire Council is also pleased to see these laws introduced as it means a reduced impact on our community's health", Cr McAulay said.

"Smoke-free areas in our Shire have been a long time coming and they're important because they create a culture that reduces our exposure to second-hand smoke and supports people in our community who are trying to quit smoking," Cr McAulay said. "Importantly, this ban also means our family, friends and visitors to Murrindindi Shire can properly enjoy their outdoor dining experience as there's nothing like sitting in the sunshine enjoying lunch and a coffee. In April 2015 amendments to the Tobacco Act extended the areas where smoking was banned across Victoria to include: ■ entrances to indoor children's play centres, public hospitals and registered community health centres, and certain Victorian Government buildings ■ the grounds of, and entrances to, childcare centres, kindergartens, preschools and primary and secondary schools ■ outdoor recreational areas, including playground equipment, skate parks and sporting venues during under-age sporting events ■ outdoor areas of public swimming pools ■ patrolled beaches ■ enclosed workplaces ■ train stations, tram-stop platforms and tram and bus shelters ■ under-age music or dance events.

What The Papers Say Rate free deal

■ Strathbogie Shire will waive two years of rates for people who are eligible for the State Government's First Home Owners Grant to try and attract them to buy their first home in the shire. Strathbogie Shire encompasses towns such as Nagambie, Avenel and Mangalore. Mayor Amanda McClaren was positive about the initative. "We've only attracted a few first home buyers in the past and we have a shire with a more mature demographic so we're looking to encourage younger people to move to the shire." - Seymour Telegraph

Typical locals

■ Census data collected last year has revealed the typical Shire of Strathbogie resident as someone 52 years of age, a modest income earning, regularly volunteering atheist, born in Australia, living with a partner without kids, in their own house, working in a managerial position. There are now more living in the Shire of Strathbogie than at any other point in recent decades, with the population ticking over another milestone to reach 10,274, up from 9958 the previous year. The increase in population from 20162017 is the highest in recent memory, after more than a decade of fairly flat population growth. - Euroa Gazette

Shredded park

■ Healesville Police are investigating extensive burnout damage at Queens Park, believed to have occurred early on the morning of Sunday (July 9) Police believe the burnouts came from a four-wheel drive and that offenders used bolt cutters to break through a chain that surrounds the car park. Offenders have continued onto the grass area next to the Grace Burn Creek, doing burnouts which cover an area of around 100m. Yarra Ranges Council contractors were at the scene on Monday, erecting wooden bollards to prevent it from happening again. - Mountain Views Mail

Solar town

■ Harnessing the power of the sun to run an entire town could soon be a reality for Healesville. About 250 people have flagged interest in a move to make solar power accessible to residents and businesses through the volunteer Healesville Community Renewable Energy Project group. Group founder Jeff Barlow said the idea started because of frustration at the State and Federal governments’ lack of action on climate change and the rising cost of energy. - Lilydale Leader

Councillor Paul Sladdin took the reins at the special budget meeting, and on behalf of his fellow councillors told the shire they would need to find $35,000 to keep the service operational. “This was the most passionate of the (budget) issues,” he said when addressing the gallery. “We, as councillors, were unfairly branded as being uncaring, which couldn’t be further from the truth - we all have children at school, or grandchildren. “Our concern has always been to ensure we get the best deal from VicRoads.” - Mansfield Courier

■ Major Purcell writes:--" Wherever you travel you are bound to meet someone from the town of Yea, but I got a bit of a surprise on a visit I paid to Wagga Wagga, N.S.W., last week. At the hotel about the first thing I heard was two men discussing Yea, and it made me feel quite at home. Shortly afterwards the wife of the proprietor of the hotel invited me to have afternoon tea with her, and she turned out to be a very frequent visitor to Yea, and knew also a great number of prom.inent Yea people. The Mayor, I found, was an old Yea citizen - Mr Hugh Oates. He had taken a great interest in the recruit ing movement, and getting 40 recruits together, had gone off into camp with them in Sydney. Shortly after arriving in the town I found that the sensation of the hour was a strike of nurses at the local hospital. Everybody was talking about it, and I was given the particulars. I found that the principal in the sensational happenings was a Yea residentMatron Brennan,well known in Yea.

Yea footy club’s history challenged ■ Evidence of local Yea football matches prior to the accepted formation date of 1893 has been discovered. It had been generally accepted that the first meeting to form a Yea Football Club was held in 1893. (An advertisement in The Yea Telegraph of March 27, 1890, asked those willing to form a football club to attend a meeting. “Documentary evidence confirms that nothing came of it, although a match was played against Tallarook shortly after,” notes the Tigers club webssite.) “Locally, a competition started in 1893 after a meeting was held at the Royal Mail Hotel Yea, on Wednesday, April 18,1893 to form the Yea Football Club. “This was four years before the formation of the Victorian Football League in 1897.” However, an 1887 edition of the Alexandra and Yea Standard gives details of clubs in both towns, six years earlier than the 1893 formation date quoted. “The football match played on Saturday afternoon last on the local ground, between the Yea and Alexandra clubs drew together a good concourse of patrons of the game, and had the contest been of a more even character it would have been a most interesting match to the onlookers,” reported the July 29, 1887, issue of the Standard. “For the visitors (Yea), Messrs. Lee and the Kelson brothers did good service, and showed to advantage many times in the game, the play of Lee being singularly good in many instances. “Unfortunately the Yeaites have not the experience in the game of

There had been an earlier match for Yea, in the previous month. On June 3, 1887, the Seymour Express local Yea correspondent wrote: “A football match is to be played Saturday next between the local club and a team from Alexandra. A deal of (?) is manifested in the match and wagers have been made." The June 10 edition of the Alexandra Standard reported Yea’s first recorded game against Alexandra (see next pages).

Besides several large trees there is a nasty bit of terrace near the eastern wing, which caused a deal of trouble during the play, as when the ball once got there it was a difficult mattter to get it away again, and a lot of useful time was lost. “I should certainly advise my Yea friends to select a more fitting piece of ground. “The Alex andra team arrived at Yea a little after 8 o'clock by rail from Molesworth, and as the match was timed to start at 2.30 p.m., there was lots of time for the visitors to view the pleasant little township and surroundings. “It is almost needless to say that the Alexandra boys received a hearty welcome at host Davey's, who soon had a special breakfast prepared, to which ample justice was done. “Of the match itself I must say that it was a stubbornly contested one, though inclined to be a bit rough at times. “Then again the ground was awful greasy, and the falls were of course more frequent, and the wonder is that more hurts were not incurred besides the nasty one to Harry Asling. “During a scrimmage in the second spell this player fell and received a severe kick over the forehead, which neceasitated his removal to the local surgery, where the hurt was skilfully attended to, but his team had to suffer his loss for the rest of the game. “The match was played with 20 a side. Mr F. Hills acted as central umpire, and certainly did his best to give satisfaction, and where the game was so fast and rough his pretty constant demand for "ball up" was about the best decision he could give when there were tiny doubtful marks. “Messrs J. Rose and A. Popple filled the position of goal- umpires for Yea and Alexandra respectively. Yea having won the choice of goals, W. Dobson kicked off for the redand-black towards the township end, and the play at once became most exciting. “For the first ten minutes the red and-blacks managed to keep the ball in close proximity to tihe sticks, and Hubbard obtained a mark at rather a difficult angle, but only a behind resulted, which was followed directly after by another from Maddeford. “ The local men at last got the

■ In 1903, there was a fierce dispute over the result of a football match between Yea and Alexandra. The Alexandra & Yea Standard, in its June 26 issue, reported: “A meeting of the delegates of the Alexandra and Yea District Football Association was held at Jennings' Shamrock Hotel, on Wednesday after noon last. “The following were pre sent:Messrs: W. Buckley and G. Kent (Thornton), Redpath and Purcell (Yea), J. W. Leckie and T. A. Fox (Alexandra), and S. Carmichael and W. Payne (Yarck). “Mr. W. Buckley was voted to the chair on the motion of Messrs. Leckie and Redpath. “The minutes of the previous meeting were read and confirmed, on the motion of Messrs. Leckie and Kent. “The matter of the difference or disagreement of reports received from Alexandra and Yea in connection with points scored at the match on June 13, was then mentioned. “Alexandra was the first to to lodge results, which showed the match to have ended in a draw, 4.10 each; on the other hand Yea claims to have won the contest by a point. “Mr Leckie, who represented the case as one of a cross verdict between the umpires, entreated the Yea delegates to withdraw as the inference appeared to be that Alexandra was entitled to the behind that the Yea umpire failed to acknowledge. “A long and desultory discussion ensued, which was concluded with the following motion :- By Messrs Leckie and KentThat the match in dispute be declared a draw. Carried. “An amendment by Messrs Purcell and Redpath, that the case be submitted to the League, was lost. “A further amendment, that the match be played over again on the Yarck ground, was also defeated. “The conduct of the field umpire in connection with this dispute was adversely commented upon. “In lieu of the match on July 4, with a combined Mansfield team, it wasdecided - That a match between the combined association be played on August 22, say at Merton, and that the four captains select the team on the following basis:- Five from the two leading clubs and four from each of the other two clubs. “The following donations were read out as having been promised :-Mrs W. H. Whiting, £2 2s.; Mr H. Wood, pennant or equivalent in cash; Mr Redpath, £3 3s.; Mr. Buckley, £2 2s. A vote of thanks to the chairman concluded the business.”

Ms McGowan apologises to Wilson Transformers for any inconvenience caused by the mistake.

On October 4, 2016 at around 10.30am Justin Fitzpatrick was on his way to an appointment in the Yea area. Justin was involved in a car accident before getting to his destination which resulted in his tragic death. His family desperately needs to make contact with the person or company Justin was going to see. Your help will assist in giving the family some closure.

130 Years of Local Press

Count revealed 23 players ■ Newly-discovered press files show the Yea was active in football prior to the commonly accepted 1893 formation date. Contemporary reports offer match descriptions from; ■ 1887 and 1889: against Alexandra and Tallarook; ■ 1890: against Alexandra and Muddy Creek. The first match appears to have been on June 4, 1887, against visitors, Alexandra (see below, right). Other games that year were also played against Tallarook (see match description on next page). No press reports can be found for local football for 1888, but the following year sees fixtures also organised at Muddy Creek (Glenmore). The 1889 report of the Tallarook match was published on September 13:“The football match, Yea v Tallarook, played on Saturday last, ended in the defeat of the former by 5 goals 5 behinds to 2 behinds. “It is only fair to the Yea team to state that several of their best players did not put in an appearance, and that their opponents played with 23 men against 16 up to three-quarter time, when the men were ranged up and counted. “Tallarook then gave Yea three men, and with this assistance Yea pressed their antagonists very hard indeed, just missing a goal or two.” The Seymour Express newspaper (June 28, 1889) had previewed the Yea-Tallarook match: “The recently formed football club are practising regularly in anticipation of a challenge from Seymour or Tallarook. If either event comes off 'our boys' will not be far behind.” A report in the Alexandra & Yea Standard from April 4, 1890, suggests that Yea had a football heritage going back much earlier. “The annual meeting of the football club was held at Davey's Hotel, on Mon day, when it was ultimately and unanimously decided to reform the club thoroughly, go regularly to practice, and endeavour to reachieve the honors the club used to possess some time ago.” In the previous year, the Club had been active socially. The press scribe noted in the Standard’s ‘Yea Jottings’: “I hear it is the intention of the football club to close the season with a ball, to be held in the shire hall.” Teams in the region also included combinations from Yarck, Gobur, Ruffy, Thornton, Tallarook. Seymour Mansfield and Darlingford. There was certainly a ‘Yea Football Club’ in existence in 1889. It wrote a letter to the Yea Shire Council seeking a refund. The Seymour Express (Sept. 17, 1889) reported: “From Yea Football Club, requesting that a portion of rent paid by them for use of Sliire Hall be refunded. — Cr Purcell was of opinion that no refund should be made. “It cost the council 7s 6d each time the hall was used, and he thought when it was used for the purpose of holding an entertainment, those using it ought to be able to pay for it. No action taken.” On July 4, 1890. The Yea correspondent wrote: “A football match was played here on Saturday between a scratch team fron.Glenmore and the local men. The game was very very unequal, Yea having the

1889 grudge match between Yea-Alexandra councillors ■ “An unexpected visit from the Alex andra Rangers quite took our young men by surprise on Saturday last, as it was understood the football match was off,” reported the Yea correspondent to the Alexandra and Yea Standard on August 30, 1889. “However not to disappoint the visitors the local men mustered 20 strong, the game coimmencing about 2.30. p.m. “It was evident from the start that the Rangers were not on a par with a team of a partly somewhat similar name hailing from Alexandra, their play being at times anything hut good, with exceptions of course. “Yea, I must say, played remarkably well, and although the team was not a strong one, shared good form. “A lad named Clarke, from Tasmania, played an excellent game as did McCann who kicked an almost impossible goal, also Anthony, Develin, Toohey, M' Leish and several others. “For the .Rangers - Watt, (1 goal), Stillman, Vining, Asling, McMartin, (2), Tossol, (2), showed very fair form. “The game resulted as follows :-Yea, 2 goals 12 behinds ; Rangers, 1 goal 4 behinds. I must mention in all fairness to the losers that they played with only 18 men, while their opponents had their full complement and declined although asked to play with equal numbers. “Mr Stillman mentioned this fact in replying (as captain) for his club. Mr J. Robinson made a very fair and impartial umpire. “The football match of the season is about to take place shortly, and intense interest is being evinced as to the probable result of the match, viz, that between the Alexandra and Yea Shire Councillors. “Money is changing hands in this, the greatest event of the year in sporting circles. Several councillors are privately taking lessons and tuition in the rules of the game. “I suppose all the officers will be allowed to take part in this game , poundkeepers included. “It seems to me that the man who will desire most sympathy at the end of the game will be the central umpire. ● A football match between Yea Shire and Alexandra Shire councillors was organised in 1889, reported The Standard. game in their own hands kicking 7 goals 4 behinds to one behind. It is only fair to state Glen more did not play with anything like their best team but they expect to turn the tables when Yea visits Glenmore.” In 1893, the Alexandra and Yea Standard quoted The Yea Chronicle: “Commenting on the recent football match betweeda Alexandra and Yea, the Chronicle says:-" The Yea players would have shone much more brilliantly had they remembered the golden rule of football, i.e., Stick to your places and not rove all

So meantime, and the men must keep far as the records go, Saturday’s beat- to their positions in the field just as ing was the worst the Yea boys ever had, and Giles and his team are to be complimented on the effective way in which they did their work. “I hope to see Yea, in the return match, retrieve the disaster, if they do not actually turn the tables on their victorious opponents “One thing must be mentioned to their credit, viz.. they took their gruel, though given with a pot-stick lnstead of a spoon, like genuine footballers.

Yea and Homewood combine for match against Alexandra ■ “On Saturday afternoon last a return football match between the (Alexandra and Yea-Homwood Combined teams) was played at Johnson's Creek, opposite the Belle Vue Hotel, in a paddock kindly lent for the occasion by Dr E. W. Sampsson, it was reported on September 30, 1892. There was a fairly large gathering of spectators, amongst them being Dr Jee, Messrs Doberty, Munckton, Graham, Jackson, J. Murphy, J. McMinn, McNicol, H. Maubey, E. W. Sampson, A. Stillman, A. Baker, Oates (Yea), and Elliott (Miller's Ponds). Amongst the ladies on the ground were Mrs.Hutchinson. Miss Thom, Miss Barras, Miss N. McMinn, Misses Johnson, Miss Robinson (Thornton), and Mrs Parsons. Mr W. Parsons was central umpire, the goal umpires being A. Hall (Alexandra) and Pettigrew (Yea). The play all through the match was not up to much. In fact, it was very unlike football. At quarter time the score stood Yea’s goal 1 behind, Alexandra nil. Half time: Alexandra 1 goal 2 behinds, Yea.1 goal 1 behind. In the third quarter Yea added a behind and in the fourth Alexandra scored two, the final result being Alexandra 1 goal 4 behinds, Yea 1 goal 2 behinds. Alexandra's goal was kicked by Kenny, and Yea's by M. McLelsh. The former's behinds were scored by Kellock, Peck (2), and Lee, the latter's by McPherson and Drysdale. For Alexandra, Kellam, Kenny, Lee, Maddeford, and H. Robinson played best; and for the visitors Maynard (captain), M'Pherson, Antony, M'Leieh, Robinson, W. Williamson, Burns, and Mitchell well.

● A press report of what is believed to be Yea’s first football match, against Alexandra, printed in the Alexandra and Yea Standard on June 10, 1887.

First game may have been played on June 4, 1887 ■ Old newspaper clippings indicate that Yea’s first football match may have been held locally on Saturday, June 4, 1887, against Alexandra. Reports in both the Seymour Express and Alexandra and Yea Standard newspaper point to a match at Yea, manned by the “recently formed” club. The June 10 Standard says the match ended with Alexandra scoring 2 goals, 5 behind; with Yea restricted to 2 behinds.

Yea’s best players were named as Lees, Lang, Dods and Davis. It was reported that because of bad weather the ‘Yeaites’ did not expect Alexandra to make the journey for the match. The 2pm match did not start until almost an hour later. The visitors were entertained that night at Rankin’s Hotel. A return match, with Yea visitors travelling to Alexandra, was staged on July 23. A game against Tallarook was played on July 9.

130 Years of Local Press First match FOOTALL. ALEXANDRAV.YEA. “On Saturday last fifteen members of the Alexandra football club journeyed to Yea to "battle" with a like number of the club recently formed at the latter place. “Real football weather greeted the players, for when the Alexandra contingent left it was raining in torrents and continued until Yea was reached. “At noon the rain ceased and made the game somewhat more agreeable than otherwise would have been the case, footballers heeding not the mud and slosh. so long as there was an absence of rain ... “The following is the team that represented Alexandra: E. Hall. W. Hubbard, A. McKay, T. Mensforth, G. Milroy, R Empoy W. Dobson (captain), J. Davies (vice-captain), H. Dobson, W. Cocking, J. Tossel, A. McMartin, E. Lipsconmbe, W. Hemmings, and C. Fooks. “It was arranged that the match should commence at two o'clock sharp, but owing to the bad weather the Yeaites did not expect that Alexandra would venture the journey “This caused a considerable amount of delay, as not only did the Alexandra team arrive early, but were on the ground in all readiness a quarter of an hour before the appointed time, and spent three quarters of an hour in practice. “The game was started shortly before three o'clock and Captain Dobson, of Alexandra, winnirg the toss took choice of goals. “Captain Lang, of Yea, kicked off and for the first part of the game the play was very even. “Shortly before the first change Alexandra forced the ball down and secured first goal, kicked by Milroy. “Upon changing positions it was seen that Alexandra had the game in their own hands, and at call of time the result was Alexandra 2 goals 5 behinds; Yea 2 behinds. “Mensforth registered the second goal for Alexandra. Those deserving of mention for Alexandra are-Mensforth, Dobson's (2), Lipscombe, E. Hall, G. Milroy, and Cocking; and for Yea - Lees, Lang, Dods, and Davis. “The visitors were entertained in the evening at an excellent supper at Rankin's hotel, and all seemed highly pleased with the associations that had been formed that day. “Mr. E. Hall, the energetic secretary, deserves the thanks of the club for the arranging of tlis match, and has proved himself most worthy of the office recerntly vacated by his brother, Mr Fred Hall. “The club is certainly to be complimented upon gaining the first victory in this district this season, and we hope that it will not be the last. “It is expected that matches will be played with Doon, Tallarook, Kilmore, Mansfield, Jamieson, and probably a team from Melbourne, selected by Mr. W. O'Connor. “This gentleman is particularly anxious that Alexandra should meet a junior teaml from the mntropolis, and no doubt thei Alexandra Football Club will willingly consent to such if the arrangements are officially conveyed.” - Alexandra & Yea Standard June 10, 1887

In 1891, the Seymour Express noted: “Seven acres of land at northern side of Snodgrass-street, Yea, have been reserved for a recreation ground.”

Meeting to form club ■ It was on April 19, 1893, that a meeting was held at the Royal Mail Hotel, Yea, “for the formation of a Yea Football Club”. The meeting was convened by Chas. Carr. A July press report said a match with Alexandra did not go ahead because the visitors had an outbreak of measles. “Tne Yea Footballers were deemed to disappointment through the Alexandra team not being able to put in an appearance last Saturday owing to the prevalence of measles. “The match will, however, be played on some future date. “On Saturday next the Yea team meet Homewood on the ground of the latter. “The Yea team will be chosen from the following :- Barratt, Anderson, Blackburn, Burns, Borrie, Cleeland, Corlhue (Corlass?), Carr, Dean, W. Drysdale, R. Dryslale, J. Hume, Lloyd, M'Asey, McManus, McLeish, A. Smith, E. Smith, Snodgrass, Thompson, Wilson, Withers.” On September 21, 1893, local paper readers were told: “On Saturday next the Yea footbhallers travel to Flowerdale. “The Yea team will be chosen from the following players :- Burns, Barrett, Blackburn, Baird, Borrie, Corlass, Carr, Cleeland, Drysdale (3), Hume, McAsey, Snodgrass, Dean, Thompson, Sandilands, E. Smith, A. Smith, McManus, MnLeish, Maynard, Lloyd, Sheard, and Dillon. “As this is the last match to be played from home, the Yea boys are expected to turn up in full force. The Chronicle reported that a football match between the Seymour and Yea Shire Councils would probably take place on Saturday week (Sept. 30), and ‘Lonehand' in the Seymour Express, tought that some really good fun may be expected.

Early days

■ Formed in 1859, Melbourne and Geelong are among the world’s oldest football clubs. They were soon followed by Carlton (1864) and North Melbourne (1869). More teams were created in the 1870s; including Essendon (1871), St Kilda (1873), and Hawthorn (1873). By this stage, football clubs had also formed in other parts of Victoria Huge crowds soon attended games in Melbourne. In 1880, big matches might attract crowds of 15,000. In 1886 a South Melbourne v Geelong game attracted 34,000, “possibly the largest football crowd in the world up to that point” according to Prof. Geoffrey Blainey.

Tallarook in 1887 game Tallarook v. Yea. (Held over from last week) “A well contested match was played at Yea on Saturday, 9th inst., between the abovenamed clubs, Tallarook playing 12 men, and the locals 15. “Winnell captained the visitors, and Laing the local club. “At half-time the game stood Tallarook 1 goal, 4 behinds; Yea, 1 goal 2 behind. “Shortly before half-time was called one of the Talla rook team kicked the ball, it striking another of his team, and went through the posts, the umpire giving it as a goal to Yea, which they (Tallarook) disputed, but the umpire allowed it to Yea. “The final result was Tallarook, 2 goals 9 behinds; Yea, 2 goals 8 behiuds. “Roberts, J. Howe, Winnell, Maddigan, Ryan, and Woods played a good game for Tallarook, as did Lee, Home, Laing, Mullens and Toohey for Yea. “At the conclusion of the match the Club entertained the visitors at Rankin's Hotel, where an excellent luncheon was laid. “After the usual toasts were proposed and responded to the visitors left by the 6.30 train after one of the most enjoyable matches played this year.” - Seymour Express, July 22, 1887

YEA FOOTBALL CLUB MATCH REPORTS SENIORS Yea 10.8 (68) defeated by Powelltown 12.10 (82) Yea took a giant leap forward in itsdevelopment on Saturday but couldn't quite finish the job, losing a tight contest with Powelltown by 14 points. After leading at every change, the Tigers were unable to sustain the same intensity in the last quarter, conceding four goals to one, two of which came on the back of 50 metre penalties. Yea made a bright start, taking a nine-point buffer into the first break and retaining this advantage at half time against a more experienced Demons outfit. Harrison Jarvie (two goals) was superb, putting in his best performance in what has been a great season already. Dan O'Dwyer was outstanding in the air and on the ground, while Riley Aldous was an everpresent danger at stoppages. Cameron Evans found plenty of the football, Zac Pell controlled the ruck and Eddie Neilson led a dour backline, with Trav Kirkham offering excellent aerial support. Short kicking and quick movement of the ball was again on display, exposing Powelltown on several occasions but there was still some basic skill errors that let the home side down. While there were plenty of positives to take out the match, it was disappointing that the Tigers couldn't get the four points after being ahead on the scoreboard for the first three quarters. Yea will attempt to knock over Yarra Glen next Saturday. Yea. Goalkickers: H. Jarvie 2, S. Pearce 2, C. Evans, T. McMahon, B. Bullen, P. Evans, D. Webb, L. Beattie. Best Players: H. Jarvie, L.

RESERVES

Yea 4.10 (24) defeated by Powelltown 11.9 (75) Yea's finals aspirations took a heavy hit on the weekend following a 51-point defeat at the hands of Powelltown. The Tigers went into the match undermanned and in need of a win to get back into the top five, but it wasn't to be as the visitors controlled the game from quarter time onwards. Yea actually looked the better team early on and took a five point-buffer into the first break, before the Demons hit back with a four goal to one second term handed them a 16-point advantage at half time. Rhys Ali returned to football after a week off and was simply brilliant, giving away more than a few inches in the ruck and holding his own before dominating through the midfield from an offensive and defensive perspective. Zac Butler battled hard in the centre, Ryan Akers was solid in the back half and Jack Sundblom continued his great year, while Ben Middleton offered plenty in the air on a tough day for key position players. The Reserves will have an uphill battle to reach the finals but it certainly isn't an insurmountable task, although they will be relying on other results depending on how may wins they can produce in the next month. The Tigers face a tough assignment in Yarra Glen at the Recreation Reserve on the weekend. Yea. Goalkickers: C. Armstrong 2, L. Dainter, T. Butterworth. Best Players: R. Ali, J. Sundblom, R.

YEA NETBALL MATCH REPORTS SOPHIE WATT’S 100 GAMES The Yea Football Netball Club was lucky when the Watts family joined the club in 2008, all fantastic contributors to the club, on and off the court. The second oldest of the sisters, Sophie, became a stand out junior player for Yea and in 2012, at 15 years old she joined the senior ranks. On Saturday against Powelltown she celebrated her 100th game, the first of the Watts family to reach the milestone. Sophie went straight into the B-Grade side and has had a remarkable senior career so far, playing in Grand finals in B grade in 2012, 2013, 2015 and 2016, just missing out on the 2014 grand final by a goal in the preliminary final. This is quite an accomplishment in just 100 games of netball and at such a young age. Of course 2013 and 2015 will be the years she remembers well as the team won the premiership and she played a major part in both. In 2013 the side was coached by her father Brad in what was a special day for the family. This season has seen Soph elevated to AGrade alongside her sister Nikki, playing mostly in WA or C. Soph is a fast and elusive midcourter and she has one of the best smiles on and off the court, a friend to everyone. Congratulations Sophie on your 100 games and we wish you many more.

A-GRADE

This was going to be a close encounter as last time A-Grade played Powelltown they lost in a tight contest. It was an awesome start by the Tigers, with all seven players throwing everything on the line right from the start. Meg and Nikki found their groove early, communicating and reading off each other well. Midcourt's Sophie Watts and Chelsea had a solid start, driving strong and applying some great defence. Defenders, Sarah, Megan and Bridget were outstanding, applying some heavy one on one defence. First quarter: Tigers led by 2 goals. In the second quarter there was only the one change to the WD position, with Soph Stares coming on. Soph brought some beautiful hands over and she worked the ball well from defence to attacking. It was a much better quarter, pushing the lead out by eight at half-time. The third quarter Yea kept pushing the lead out but Powelltown were still hanging around. Coach Cindy took the court this quarter, working with Sarah who played in the Centre position. Sarah brought some run through the court and applied some wonderful one on one pressure. Shooters, Meg and Nikki kept building and putting up shots, trying to score off every ball. Defenders, Megan and Bridget pulled in every possible ball, communicating well. The last quarter wasn't the Tigers best one. Powelltown took on the game, chipping back and scoring off Yea's errors. A little loss of concentration and possession brought Powelltown right back into the game. Yea took away the points in a close encounter yet again. Well done to all girls on not giving up in the final minutes of the game. They will face Yarra Glen next weekend at home. Yea 38 def Powelltown 34 Goals: M .Sundblom 25, N. Watts 13 Best: S. Watts, N. Watts, S. Armstrong Award: Sophie Watts

B-GRADE

In the absence of coach/player Cindy Hayes the wins didn't stop there for the Tigers with another solid win from B-Grade. It all started with Tigers defenders, Chelsea, Lauren and Rhi working so well together. Taking some wonderful rebounds meant that Tigers could hit the front. Cindy and Kate moved the ball well through the midcourt, meaning that Reggie and Reg had enough time to create some space and drive to the post. It was a solid first

quarter with Yea scoring a top of 22 goals and keeping Powelltown to only one goal. Moving into the second quarter, Rach came on into GD who worked well with Rhi in GK, Loz moved out into WD who shut down Powelltown’s WA. Hannah was back again this week, playing with B-Grade. She was very handy through the midcourt making some strong leads to the ball and working well with Cindy, Kate and Reg. The third and fourth quarter Yea extended their lead. With all players doing their job and working as a team Yea took away the four points. They will train hard this week, with Yarra Glen coming up next. Well done girls on a solid win against Powelltown. Yea 73 def Powelltown 10 Goals: A,. Akers 28, R. Bell 27, R .Aldous 8, K. Elliot 10 Best: R. Aldous, H. Christie, R. Bell Award: Regina Bell

It was a close game and a lot more work had to be done by the Tigers to take home the win. It was a low scoring quarter, with both team scoring a few goals each. Alicia came in GA and really helped build on composure and keeping possession of the ball. She worked well with Ebony who popped back into WA and Tessa who also went back into C. Defensively, all players were still the same, as each one was working over time to gain possession of the ball. The last quarter was the Tigers’ best quarter scoring 6 goals to 2. Alicia and Amy worked themselves out, giving each other space and allowing midcourters Rhi and Ebony to do some work on the circles edge. Defenders Sarah Leisa and Jill were having a day out, taking amazing intercepts and communicating well. Yea came home with an eight-goal win; well done girls. Yea 18 def Powelltown 10 Goals: A. O'Connor 7, A. Smith-Jones 11 Best: L. Peters, A. Smith-Jones, J Hargreaves Award: Jill Hargreaves - Lauren Hearn

C-GRADE The Tigers came to win with an amazing start. First centre pass was going the way of Powelltown but it didn't get far until Emily and Jude picked off a loose ball. Working together, Molly, Jude and Jess worked it into Fiona and Yea scored. It didn't stop there, Tigers kept possession and kept building on their prelims and balancing the court. Defenders, Deb, Ruby and Emily were clean when trying to win possession, always having a go and backing each other up. They kept Powelltown to only two goals in the first quarter while we score an incredible 16 goals. Second quarter: both Jess and Fiona stayed the same, as well as Molly. Jordan came on into the Centre position to replace mum Judy. Jordan brought confidence to the team, giving an option to the ball at all times. Both Molly and Jordan fed well to Fi and Jess this quarter with them scoring 13 goals between them. Kim came on into GD to replace daughter Ruby, which brought a little competition on who could play it better! The defenders worked hard and they all showed improvement. The third and fourth quarter Yea crept out to a promising lead. Tigers kept building and building and the score line showed a well deserved win. Powelltown didn't score any goals in the last half, so credit to the defenders on applying a huge amount of pressure. It wasn't only the defenders on the day that kept them at only six goals, it was every single player. It was an amazing game to watch with everyone working together so well. One of the best games they've played all year. Great job girls! Keep up the good work. Yea 66 def Powelltown 6 Goals: F. Purvis 31, J. Armstrong 35 Best: F. Purvis, M .Jarvie, J. Armstrong Award: Judy Watts and Jess Armstrong

D-GRADE

It was a slow start this week for the Tigers, with major errors setting them back. There were patches of excellent play and then some patches of silliness. Alicia and Amy were working well together in the circle, working it around with midcourters Tess and Ebony. Defensively, Jill (best on court), Leisa and Sarah were outstanding, applying pressure on Powelltown attackers. It was an even quarter with both teams scoring four goals each. Going into the second quarter, coach Deb brought on some fresh legs to help hit the front. Defensively all players stayed the same as the pressure was enormous and they were all working incredibly well together. There was a swap in the Centre position with Rhi coming on, she helped create some space and steady the team. India came on in WA and worked well with Rhi. Amy stayed the same this quarter but in the GS position Molly came on and moved exceptionally well, really trying to work for the front spot. It was a much better quarter, with Tigers pushing the lead out by three goals.

YEA GOLF CLUB REPORT

■ There were 14 men players contesting a par event on Saturday at Yea. Michael Spagnolo playing off a single figure handicap of 9, scored -1 to win from Alan Pell (10) and Neil Peterson (13) on CB. Michael was also nearest the pin on the 11th hole. Malcolm Bett won the Club Award on CB from He. He didn't have a good golfing day but not to be outdone, won the super draw for chook lotto. New member Christine Simmons, playing her second round at Yea, won the ladies event Many thanks to Miranda and Rob Gill who stepped in at the last minute to cater for Rotary on Thursday night. Another example of the grea workers we have at Yea Golf Club. The first round of the three-week, winter gender challenge started at Yea Golf Club on Wednesday. Unfortunately for the ladies, with quite a few away, their numbers were down and the men dominated the results, albeit with some very good scores. Mick Spagnolo was the winner with an excellent 39 points from Martin Lowe on 38, Jeff Moss 33 and a number of players on 32. Vicky Butler, fresh from her Italian sojourn, was bes for the women with 30 points. No-one was nearest the pin. The club was pleased to welcome new member Christine Simmons for her firs round. The battle continues over the next two weeks culminating with a Christmas in July lunch on July 19. Members are reminded that the club's annual meeting will be held at 7pm on Tuesday July 18at the clubhouse. Please come along if you are able. - Gary Pollard

ALEXANDRA FOOTBALL NETBALL CLUB MATCH REPORTS SATURDAY

The AFLYarra Ranges League Round 12 of the 2017 season last Saturday saw the Rebels return to Rebel Park and host Yarra Junction for two games of football and four games of netball. It was the Rebels first home game in four weeks after narrow losses to the top sides, the weather was fine but cold and a big crowd boosted by the return of premiership players of 1997 (seniors) and 2007 (reserves) and other past players. The Alexandra players wore black armbands as a mark of respect to the Dundas family after their beautiful Steph lost her courageous battle with Cystic Fibrosis.

ALEXANDRA FOOTBALL NETBALL CLUB MATCH REPORTS RESERVES

The Reserves, after a run of three consecutive losses, were able to field a much stronger team on the field than had ventured to Belgrave recently with nine changes to the team. Alexandra began well and with new player Scott Isaacs showing out and the inclusion of Matt Steiner back after a serious facial injury and Isaac Hedger, the Rebels set the tone of the game with eight first-quarter goals. Alexandra continued to keep the scoreboard moving in the second and the defense led by Daniel Rouget had kept the visitors goalless until the main break. Ben Podger-Carroll with his dash along with Tom Halligan provided the forwards with a continued supply of opportunities and three third quarter goals to Jedd Hamill continued the momentum against the undermanned Eagles. Five further goals came to different players in the last quarter as Alex amassed their biggest win for the season 23.13 (151) to Yarra Junction 1.2 (8). Best players included Matt Steiner (2 goals), Isaac Hedger (4 goals), Daniel Rouget, Scott Isaacs (7goals). Conor Heaslip and Tom Halligan.

Jake Steyger to replace Nathan Dundas and Steve Steiner, began to the town end but some loose checking early allowed the visitors to score the first goal of the game. The Rebels were winning plenty of possessions but often turned the ball over with one too many hand passes. Ben Cooper, strong overhead, marked and kicked Alexandra's first goal as both sides were tackling strongly but Scott Hill reading the play well roved a ball off the hands and kicked a good goal. Yarra Junction also showed that they could move the ball well and leveled the score. Both sides fought to find a break but the defense of each team was on top as teams went to quarter time, 2.4 each. An early disposal error cost the Rebels the lead but Nick Waugh forwarded where Luke Heard took a fine one handed mark and kicked accurately. Brayden Norris always on the move snapped the next goal then provided Callum Tranter with the ball for Alexandra's fifth as they began to establish a handy break. The visitors then had a good period and goaled twice to steady but again Alex was able to break away as they realised that if they got the ball in quickly either Heard or Norris would probably mark it or bring it to ground. Alexandra kicked eight goals for the quarter and took a 17-point lead to the rooms as Zach Heaslip goaled right on the siren. Heard continued his strong marking and accurate goal kicking early in the third quarter but Yarra Junction also found a way to goal in a high scoring encounter.

Chris Mullins took on the heavy work and his battle with one opponent earned each a yellow card and a 15-minute rest. Alexandra had added six goals for the quarter (Heard 3, Norris 2 and Hill) but only their accuracy enabled them to increase the margin narrowly at the last change as well directed passes to Heard and Norris resulted in narrow misses at the hill end. Cooper continued his attack on the ball as did Ryley Norris, whilst in defence Jordan Purcell and the Goonan twins tightened up. Alexandra rotated all four talls against the Junction big man and gradually got on top whilst Tranter as normal found the goals when the opportunities arose as the Rebels went on to record a 41 point win: 21.8 (134) to 14.9 (93). Best players included Luke Heard (7 goals), Brayden Norris (4 goals), Ben Cooper, Ryley Norris, Chris Mullins and Scott Hill (4 goals). Awards: Alex Standard $50 fuel card - Luke Heard, Hoova's @ Mt.Pleasant $20 meal Brayden Norris, Corner Hotel $20 meal - Ben Cooper, Corner Hotel 5 pots - Ryley Norris. The gate raffle was won by Ray Kreeck, the points margin was 41, meat tray won by Toni Carter and wine by Harley Scott.
