Body of work tells disturbing story

Mr Trethowan remains linked with the latest proposal, listed as the contact on the planning application and providing a letter in support of the building’s demolition. “The retention of the building cannot be countenanced and the only course available is demolition,” it states. “My opinion is that demolition should take place as soon as possible in order to avoid any possible damage to the public or property.” A 14-day public submission period ends on Thursday, but Hobsons Bay council will accept Newport’s iconic Masonic Hall may be torn submissions right up until a decision is made. down.

Newport’s iconic Masonic Hall may be torn down after developers lodged plans to demolish the 1924 heritage building. A structural condition assessment report lodged with a planning application to Hobsons Bay Council found the building was “not suitable for continued use” as part of a proposed four-storey apartment and retail redevelopment. “The building has received little maintenance over many years, resulting in significant deterioration of its structure, particularly the vertical elements,” the report added. But the demolition proposal has met strong community resistance, the planning application already attracting more than 200 submissions. A 2006 Hobsons Bay Heritage Study found the former Freemasons Hall to be historically,

socially and aesthetically significant because of the importance of Masonic associations to the development of Newport, the building’s prominent position and neo-Grecian design. Williamstown Historical Society president Brain Haynes said the Masonic Hall had been on the site for 91 years and was a landmark for the region. “While it’s acknowledged that the building is in poor condition, I feel, at the very least, the facade should and can be kept,” he said. “Newport has few structures remaining from the past.” A 2012 plan by the owners to retain the facade and demolish the rest of the building was rejected by Hobsons Bay councillors and the Victorian Civil Administrative Tribunal. Tribunal member Rachel Naylor noted the building had significant heritage value and she placed “limited weight” on expert heritage 1219971-HM10-16

Grief for dog killed by tiger snake By Benjamin Millar A devastated dog owner is warning of the danger of snakes after her young dog was killed while playing at a popular Newport park. Williamstown resident Kylie Champion said her Great Dane cross Fini was bitten a number of times by a tiger snake at Newport Riverside Park on October 2. “My partner Beth took our dog down to the dog park. Some of the grass was a bit long and Fini has come out with a snake in her mouth. People were trying to get the snake off her but she seemed to think it was a bit of a game.” By the time Fini and the snake could be

separated it had bitten her repeatedly. Ms Champion said her partner rushed Fini to the vet where she was given antivenom and placed on a respirator. But Fini’s condition deteriorated and she died two days later. Now Ms Champion is being consoled by the community and friends, who have organised a special event to commemorate Fini and help pay the vet bills. The gathering will be at Newport Lakes Reserve from 10am-2pm on Sunday, October 30, and feature live entertainment, a barbecue and stalls. Ms Champion recalls, “We had had Fini 18 months and had been to that park a lot. We’d never heard of anyone being bitten there.”

Hobsons Bay council chief executive Chris Eddy said the council routinely mowed Newport Riverside Park as it was aware it had become a popular spot for dog owners to let their pets run. “The grass has been growing quickly after the recent rain so we’ve increased the frequency of our mowing.” Mr Eddy said that with warmer weather, snakes would become more active in and around local parks and reserves. “Council advises owners to be sensible and keep dogs on leads in areas where snakes might be present.” While upset by the loss of Fini, Ms Champion said: “People put their own personal safety at risk trying to help her at the time.”

House call uncovers stolen tradies’ tools A tradies’ treasure trove of stolen tools has been uncovered at Footscray. Footscray police are inviting victims of power tool thefts to the station today for a chance to reclaim their goods after the discovery of a cache of stolen tools at a house on Beevers Street last month. The tools were located when police attended the home on Tuesday, September 27. Sergeant Kris Hamilton said as they arrived at the address, police saw a car speeding away. A closer inspection of the property revealed items that roused police suspicions, leading them to obtain and execute a search warrant. The raid uncovered two box trailers, one of which contained a large number of power tools, all believed to have been stolen. The discovery follows a spate of recent cases of tradies’ vehicles being broken into across the inner west. Thieves have been breaking into utes and work vehicles, often making off with thousands of dollars worth of tools. The thefts are occurring in driveways overnight, as well as from construction sites, when tools may be left unsecured. Tradies are being urged to lock their vehicles and take the time to remove all valuable items. A list of tools and photographs of all items have been compiled and stored at Footscray Police Station. Today’s viewing and collection day at the station is between 9am and 5pm.

Repeat volunteer Tuli Serra said taking part in V4U had helped her develop leadership skills.

Tunnel levy linked to land values By Benjamin Millar A future rail tunnel from Newport to Clifton Hill via Fishermans Bend and Southern Cross station could be partly funded by households near the rail corridor, according to Victoria’s key infrastructure advisory body. An Infrastructure Victoria report flags a proposal for up to a quarter of the estimated $19 billion cost of the Melbourne Metro 2 project to be borne by landowners who would directly benefit from an estimated $20 billion boost to land values.

The “betterment levy”, starting at an average of $435 a year for residential properties, would be applied for 30 years to households and businesses within a kilometre of train stations in the Werribee corridor. The proposal has been outlined in the independent authority’s draft 30-year infrastructure strategy, released last week, which lists the second Metro tunnel as a medium to long-term priority to be delivered in the next 15 to 30 years. Infrastructure Victoria chief executive Michel Masson said that while the Melbourne

Metro 2 tunnel project might have merit, it required further investigation. “While our evidence is clear that there is a need for a further significant uplift to rail capacity on the Mernda, Sunshine and Werribee corridors over the long term, the proposed solution comes at a very high cost and all possible alternatives need to be identified and tested first,” he said. Consultation on the draft strategy closes on October 31 before the final 30-year infrastructure strategy is delivered to State Parliament in December.

Asked whether the government would consider applying a betterment levy on the Metro 2 project, a spokesman for Public Transport Minister Jacinta Allan said the final report’s recommendations would be fully considered as part of the government’s five-year infrastructure plan, which is to be released in the middle of next year. “We’ve ruled out a levy on existing properties to fund the [first] Metro tunnel and our unprecedented pipeline of major public transport projects, including 50 level-crossing removals,” he said.

Gary’s kicking the goals A Seddon resident has been honoured for his tireless work introducing new Australians to the nation’s indigenous game. Gary Lee was named AFL Multicultural Community Ambassador of the Year by Victoria’s Governor, Linda Dessau, in a recent presentation at Government House. Mr Lee, a Malaysian migrant, said he had revelled in his role over three years as one of the league’s multicultural community ambassadors, taking international students and people from diverse communities to footy games and banner-making workshops. He said he had been humbled by the opportunity to help build communities through what he considers an “amazing sport”. “Australian football is such an enigma,” he said. “For a sport predominantly played in one part of the globe, it has such powerful ability to transcend cultural barriers and bring communities together.”

Mr Lee, who was earlier this year named by the Australia Day Council as the New Australian of the Year for 2016, sees the AFL as an agent for bringing together people from all walks of life. “AFL has the ability to unite people and break down stereotypes and cultural barriers, and I want to be part of this positive transformation,” he said. AFL Victoria multicultural participation co-ordinator Salim Mahazi said the award was deserved recognition for Mr Lee. “Gary has been a truly dedicated AFL Victoria multicultural ambassador and very active in his support programs.” Benjamin Millar Gary Lee has been named AFL Multicultural Community Ambassador of the Year.

Violet, 5, has her waders on for litter patrol at Jawbone Marine Sanctuary. (Damjan Janevski)

Beach bugs battle litter The community is being invited to get involved in a project to reduce litter and waste at the source. Wader Beach for Birds not Litter project aims to raise awareness of litter problems in and around Williamstown and Newport, and encourages people to reduce waste for landfill. Wader beach, named after the wader birds that frequent it, is next to the Jawbone Marine Sanctuary. Friends of Williamstown Wetlands treasurer and project co-ordinator, Marilyn Olliff said she was shocked when she visited the beach and found it clogged with litter from stormwater drains. “When I first saw it I was horrified by it and I was also horrified by the fact that the people I was with all said, ‘Well, what on earth can we

On Sunday, they are inviting the community to join them at Williamstown High School’s Bayview campus, to take part in a water-bug survey, snorkelling and litter patrol between 10am and 2.30pm.

Prison for arsonist’s ‘rampage’ By Benjamin Millar A serial arsonist who volunteered for the CFA and worked for Metro when he caused millions of dollars of damage to trains and the rail network has been sentenced to 14 years’ jail. Nicholas Archer, 28, previously pleaded guilty to 12 counts of arson, three counts of reckless conduct endangering life and a series of sabotage and criminal damage charges for incidents in Newport and across Melbourne. County Court Judge John Smallwood said last Tuesday that Archer’s offending was

“extreme” and betrayed the trust of his fellow CFA volunteers and Metro employees, causing millions of dollars worth of damage. “In many years [working] as a criminal lawyer and judge I don’t think I’ve seen a rampage from an adult approaching what you did in that period of time,” he said. Archer’s crimes included cutting wires at signal boxes of railway stations and burning down vintage railway carriages at a Newport museum where he volunteered. He derailed three train carriages at Hurstbridge railway station late last year, causing damage valued about $3 million.

Archer was sentenced to 14 years’ imprisonment with a nine-year minimum non-parole period. Judge Smallwood said Archer had repeatedly set fires and damaged the rail network despite being “fully aware” of his actions and the impact they would have on the public. Judge Smallwood dismissed defence counsel Ian Crisp’s argument his client might have set some of the fires at Newport’s Steamrail Victoria site because he was previously sexually assaulted there. On March 4 last year, he started a fire at the Steamrail Victoria clubhouse in Newport,

that damaged a building that housed historic locomotives. He returned to the club on August 8 and lit a fire that destroyed historic carriages. Archer was a member of Steamrail Victoria at the time, the court documents say, and he contacted emergency services after lighting the fires. Archer damaged a signal hut in Newport last year that affected nearby boom gates, cut rail operations on the line between Melbourne and Adelaide and cut services along the Werribee line. with The Age

Art as a dream keeper Muir, a finalist in last year’s National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Awards, sees his artistic expression as part of a long tradition. “Aboriginal people and people in history have always used art as a way of communicating a message,” he said. Muir struggled throughout his teenage years, dropping out of high school and experiencing his first drug overdose at the age of 15. Now 25, he is able to revisit those dark times to weave a cautionary but uplifting tale. “I make art that gives people a vision to open their mind,” he said. “I’m creating a way of spending time with people rather than hiding in the shadows.” Josh Muir will host an art talk from 2pm on Wednesday at the VU Footscray Park library.

Rising artist Josh Muir hopes his harrowing journey can inspire other young people to keep hold of their dreams whatever their struggles might be. Visiting Victoria University this week to discuss his art and personal journey, Muir will open up about his years of hardship, depression and drug addiction. The Yorta Yorta/Gunditjmara man said art and creativity held an important place in his life and offered a way to pull himself out of dark places. “It’s a positive outlet for me,” he said. “Visuals became my way of sharing my voice, they became something I could show to people rather than having to explain things through words.” Muir’s art, drawing on street art and hip-hop, often depicts the entwined history of indigenous people and European settlers.

2016 Annual Meeting

The family of renowned Footscray doughnut maker Nick Tsiligiris has been forced to quash rumours that he has died. Posts on Facebook at the weekend citing the death of the 81-year-old local identity were shared thousands of times, as the rumour also raced across other social media, including Twitter and Reddit. The posts triggered an outpouring of grief and commiseration, and the Tsiligiris family was inundated with messages of condolence. The rumour appears to have been triggered by a Rest in Peace poster taped to the front of the closed Olympic Doughnuts stall at Footscray Station on Saturday. Mr Tsiligiris’s daughter, Gina Hasapis, told Star Weekly the rumours had been spread without being checked with any family members before they were posted or shared. “I think somebody wants to get a lot of likes and comments,” she said. “But it’s not true … it’s upsetting for people and the family,” she said. “It’s just caused an enormous amount of work.” Ms Hasapis said upset relatives had spent most of Sunday refuting the claims and trying to get the truth out. The family released a statement advising everyone that Mr Tsiligiris had not passed away. “We don’t know where this rumour has started … or who has started it. We thank everyone for their love, support and care all through this time.” The incident spurred a number of internet memes in response to the rumours. Ms Hasapis said her father and the family are in the process of deciding the future of Olympic Doughnuts, which has been closed since earlier this year due to Mr Tsiligiris’s poor health. The 80-cent hot jam doughnuts have long been regarded as among Australia’s best, tempting locals and visitors alike since 1979.

Exclusively Family Law TIC Group’s managing director of mattress recycling, Michael Warren. (Damjan Janevski)

Plant tackles sleeper issue A Tottenham business has sprung into action rather than rolling over on a serious environment issue facing the sleep industry. TIC Group’s managing director of mattress recycling, Michael Warren, said the business is now set up to recycle every mattress disposed of each year in Victoria, putting in Australia’s first automated mattress recycling plant. “At the moment, in excess of one million mattresses end up in landfill in Australia every year … if these mattresses were stacked on top of each other, they’d reach the international space station,” Mr Warren said. TIC recycles 2000 mattresses per week, he said, about 100,000 per year. “But we have the capacity to do far more.” TIC works with about 40 per cent of Victorian councils, collecting mattresses left out for hard

waste collection. But Mr Warren wants stricter controls on mattresses still going to landfill. “The state government and councils need a ban on mattresses going into landfill,” he said. “We have just succeeded to tender with Maribyrnong, but clearly there are other councils we would also like to work with.” Based on Dutch technology, the automated process means a mattress can be recycled in 40 seconds. Coverings and foam are removed to create carpet underlay, while metal from the springs is shredded and melted down. The state government provided a $250,000 grant to help build the new plant, officially opened by energy, environment and climate change minister Lily D’Ambrosio last Friday. Benjamin Millar

If These Walls Could Talk was created at VU Metrowest on Monday night by almost 100 Victoria University students using body paint to blend 20 models into a background of intricate wallpaper panels. Each model was painted by a team of students over a six-hour period. Creative director Sam Pattison said having the models fade into the background of the wallpaper symbolised society’s silencing of the

estimated one in six women who experience domestic violence in Australia. Ms Pattison said the aim of the exhibition was to show the fear, shame and lack of having a voice felt by women experiencing domestic violence. “Discovering that intimate-partner violence is the most common type of violence against women was a real revelation,” she said. “We wanted to help raise awareness of this issue and the exhibition is our students’ way of making a statement.” Money raised on Monday night has gone to support the White Ribbon campaign to end men’s violence against women.

Steven Rhall with part of Gesture (70º East) New Day Rising Rising. (Bryony Jackson)

Art goes off the grid The multi-layered history of an iconic Melbourne site has inspired the latest work by Footscray artist Steven Rhall. Rhall is one of a handful of artists invited to take part in the Public Art Melbourne Biennial Lab at Queen Victoria Market, with the result unveiled this week as part of Melbourne Festival. He describes Gesture (70º East) New Day Rising Rising, as an “intervention” that draws on the history of the site both in its time as a cemetery and before white colonisation. A Taungurung man, Rhall said the work reconnected the site with the original landscape by orienting its lines and cross-hatching with Birrarung, the Yarra River. “I was really interested in the visual landscape of this place … how the cycles of nature interacted with the landscape,” he said.

Rhall said the market, like the cemetery beforehand, run east-west, whereas the adjacent CBD “Hoddle Grid” follows the course of the river and the natural landscape. His artwork in M Shed plays with these colonial grid lines, including clear panels in the roof to create shadows that will shift with the cycle of the seasons in the next six months. Gesture (70º East) New Day Rising will be launched at M Shed with a performance event from 1-1.30pm this Sunday. Rhall and fellow artist Kiron Robinson will join Biennial Lab chief curator Natalie King to lead a free walking tour at the Queen Victoria Market from 12.30-1.30pm on Friday, covering the projects happening as part of Biennial Lab.

All for a good cause A decade of service to the communities of Hobsons Bay features in a new publication. The work of the philanthropic Hobsons Bay Community Fund (HBCF) is celebrated in a new brochure that highlights the help the fund has given diverse groups and organisations since 2006. Committee member John Clarke said he is proud to be part of the fund after joining about five years ago. “It’s really expanded over the 10 years – there was a big lift in our corpus in 2013 when the state government offered to match $100,000 if we raised $100,000, which we did,” he said. Mr Clarke said local business and industry, including Toll and Qenos, have played a key role in enabling the fund to grow and increasing the size of the grants it delivers each year.

“We are a perpetual fund; we use the interest each year to make the grants, and the number of grants is getting stronger each year,” he said. “Each year the committee follows up with one of the groups … it’s great to see what’s happening – for many of these organisations in their start-up phase, it can be very positive.” Mr Clarke said rather than resting on their laurels after 10 years’ good work, committee members have set an ambitious goal. “We have set ourselves a target of $1 million in the corpus,” he said. “We are looking at various strategies – industry is one, but the other is bequests.” Find more about the HBCF, go to www. hbcommunityfund.org.au.

MY PLACE Williamstown yoga teacher Blandina Stecca tells Benjamin Millar raising seeing eye puppies is incredibly rewarding. What is your connection with Williamstown? Efrem – my husband – and I love green areas and wanted to live close to the ocean. Moreover, being a yoga teacher I was searching for a spot with a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere. After the first walk in the botanic gardens and on the beach, I felt this was the place to be. What do you love most about the area? Green areas. Plenty of space to get around with Irwin – my Seeing Eye Dog – walk with my friends, do yoga outdoor and meditation in front of the ocean. I just love it. And the people are so friendly. I have felt welcomed since my very first day here. What are your favourite local places to spend time? I love organic food, Novel Kitchen is a natural stop for me – and Steve and the staff love dogs. Replenish has great organic produce, as does the Farmers’ market. My husband often brings me to Altro Pizza, while Irwin’s favourite shop is the Dog Town Pet Shop. I teach and practice yoga at the Williamstown Yoga and Meditation centre, a very special space full of peace, tranquillity, and positive energy. When it comes to being outdoors, the Cyril Curtain Reserve is a fantastic place to walk dogs and meet with dog lovers. How did you become involved in yoga and why is it important to you? I started practicing yoga in 2001 as a rehabilitation practice after an accident while

skiing on the Dolomites. To me, yoga is a fascinating and joyful journey of discovery. This journey has enabled me to move toward a deeper understanding of my body, my breath, my thoughts, my emotions and my actions. What made you decide to be a puppy carer and what do you find most rewarding about it? I have a vision impaired friend – Cecilia – back in Italy. Spending time with her and her dog Loren made me realise that a Seeing Eye Dog can truly change a blind person’s life. Hence, after arriving to Melbourne, I decided to get in touch with Seeing Eye Dogs Australia (SEDA) and enter their puppy caring program. Being a member of the SEDA family is simply fantastic. Raising the pup is quite a commitment, but also a lot of fun, the love and affection that the pup gives you will always stay with you and warm up your heart forever. What’s something people might be surprised to learn about you? When I was a baby, I learnt how to walk thanks to Harold, my parents’ big dog. I would grab his fur and he would gently move a few steps forward. A very funny way to learn… and a very patient dog! Blandina is running a free yoga workshop 2.30-5pm Saturday October 29 at the Williamstown Yoga and Meditation Centre in collaboration with SEDA to promote their puppy caring program. Register by sending an email to blandina.stecca@gmail.com. For further information on SEDA contact wendy. lake@visionaustralia.org or call 9381 6438.

Darwin to Adelaide on a luxury train By John Huxley, via The Age Silhouetted against infinite blue skies and a dusty, red background, surrounded by old friends such as Bernie the Buffalo, Tin Shaker the Brahmin cow and Cecil the Mule, Tom Curtain climbs atop an old favourite, “Legend the Trick Horse”. From the centre of one of several stockyards – hung with boards bearing messages such as “You’re in cattle country… eat meat, you bastard” – he plays his guitar, banging out a few tracks from his award-winning album Smack Bang Bang. Earlier, he has held a big, predominantly townie audience, entranced as, before our eyes, he breaks in a wild horse with a mix of cajolery, gentle pushes and prods, rewards and, of course, whispers. Clearly, Legend is, in the words of celebrity chefs, “one I prepared earlier”: he and Tom make a moving double act. Or triple, if his attractive, hard-working cowgirl partner Annabel Mclarty is included. They, their animals – and, it seems, the noisy jets from the nearby Tindal air base – are all part of the Katherine Outback Experience. Like the alternative, “dreamtime” river cruise-walk, up the nearby Nitmiluk Gorge, the outback experience offers a glimpse of the slow-beating heart of Australia from a stopping train. The magnificent. The luxurious. The historic. The Ghan. Katherine is just the first stop on a memorable, three-night, four-day, 2979-kilometre trip from Darwin to Adelaide, on a 902-metre-long train that, in the course of a year, travels 369,000 kilometres, serves 585,000 meals and – a private interest – 23,000 cans of Coke. Throughout its trip, the train offers 330 or so guests not just a measure of ingeniously

engineered comfort, good company, cheerful service and fine dining, but a cultural, historical and, in the burning-hot, backblocks of Coober Pedy, an underground experience. As The Ghan guest brochure notes approvingly, famous travel writer and train

of the elusive, starry blue opal upon which the fortunes of the town have wildly waxed and waned. There is a magic, too, in many of the evocative names of the places through which The Ghan travels. They include, from north to south, Muchaty, Illoquara, Coondambo, Pimba, Bookaloo, Hesso, Crystal Brook, Rocky River, Dry Creek. It was not until 2001 that The Ghan line was extended by 1420 kilometres to connect Alice Springs to Darwin, the guide explains as we rejoin the train to resume our trip south. That night, our first on board, we dine on such local delicacies as scallops, crocodile sausage, smoked duck and grilled barramundi, washed down by a wide choice of top, predominantly Australian wines. That night, too, we experience the deft way in which cabin seats and side tables, are replaced by drop-down beds. As all guests are warned in advance – especially in the main, gold class – space on The Ghan is at a premium. Bulky bags should be stowed elsewhere on the train. Waiters and waitresses, dressed in checkered black and white shirts, serve guests sitting at dazzling, wedding-white tables, from a menu including poached chicken and saffron shallots, followed by Thousand Guineas tenderloin and the chef’s selection of pavlova and chocolate brownies. The atmosphere is laid-back. Some guests are happy to sit around chatting to new-found friends. Some go, aptly, for a camel ride. Some inspect the old telegraph station and its fascinating museum pieces. Others dance away the night to the music of a local country singer or, best of all, enjoy the trip through the starry, starry skies by a local astronomer. It is a

Lunch is taken in the Umoona Opal Mine and Museum. It’s underground, of course, in an abandoned tunnel. All too soon, we run out of time. But a short drive away, there are two more excursion treats, before we head back to The Ghan and enjoy the 882-kilometre home stretch to Adelaide. John Huxley was a guest of Tourism NT and The Ghan.

FOOD REVIEW STARWEEKLY.COM.AU

CONSIDER THE SAUCE Kenny Weir uncovers an Italian job he’s walked past for years … Bennie and I have an engagement in Altona – the launch party for a new eating place. In truth, we’re not sure how – or if – this will work for us. It’s a weeknight, with school and work the next day, and it remains to be seen whether CTS will get enough of a look-see at the food to generate a story. We get through the security cordon, stride up the stairs and find that, nope, this isn’t for us – it’s all about people standing around drinking. Bennie’s in his school uniform and we just don’t feel comfortable. This place will have to wait for another day. So around the corner we go, still chasing a feed, to throw our lot in with Pier 71 Bar e Cucina. This turns out to be an ace move on our part, as this very cool Italian has until now escaped our notice, even though it’s been around for a couple of years. It’s all about casual Italian – something along the lines of Ovest in West Footscray or Mascalzone in Williamstown – big on pizzas, pasta and salads, not so gung-ho about steaks and pricey seafood. The place is roughly split into three areas – a communal table at front, what amounts to a long hallway of both booth and table seating next to the kitchen/serving areas, and a flexible alfresco area out back. We eat very well, and find the service and timing fine for a busy mid-week night. Pizza Napoletana ($17.90) is as good as we

PIER 71 BAR E CUCINA Address: 71 Pier Street, Altona Phone: 9398 8598 could hope for – simple, very fine and expertly done. There’s stacks of anchovies – good for me, not so good for Bennie! The chips that accompany our “hamburger” (Italian style, $18.90) are superb – hot, crisp, plentiful. Fried discs of chorizo atop chips seem something of an affectation, though, and our first conclusion is that we’d be happier if that effort had been put into more heft in our burgers, which seem smallish for the price. Bennie makes rude comparisons with burgers elsewhere, but after eating I conclude he’s being unfair – because, as is so often the case, this eats bigger than it looks. And it is indeed in the “Italian style” – the meat is much more finely minced than is the case with burgers generally, be they old-school Aussie or the American style. It’s a delight with its capsicum, onion, mozzarella and sauce. We go for it in terms of indulgence by sharing the tiramisu ($10.90). It’s a dreamy, rich fantasy – much stiffer in terms of consistency than we’re used to, the booze-tinged cream a thing of grinning decadence.

MADE WITH LOVE

Recently my poor hubby was laid up in hospital and totally miserable. I asked if there was anything special I could bring him to cheer him up. He promptly produced a page he’d torn out of a magazine, showing the recipe for Donna Hay’s salted caramel peanut brownies. It was a labour of love, I’ll admit, but the result was sublime. And, yes, they DID make him feel better! I was also pleased to see the photo I took of my brownies stacked up pretty well against the one in the magazine.

SALTED CARAMEL PEANUT BROWNIES

Brownie base: 100g dark (70%) chocolate, chopped 125g unsalted butter, chopped 1 cup brown sugar 2 eggs 2/3 cup plain flour, sifted 1 tablespoon cocoa powder, sifted Caramel filling: 115g unsalted butter, chopped 3/4 cup brown sugar 1/3 cup golden syrup 2/3 cup single (pouring) cream 1 cup salted roasted peanuts

BARRY MICHAEL FORMER WORLD BOXING CHAMPION

Preheat oven to 180°C. To make the base, put the chocolate and butter in a saucepan over a low heat and stir until melted and smooth. Place sugar, eggs, flour and cocoa in a bowl, add the chocolate mixture and combine. Pour into a lined, square cake tin and bake for 30-35 minutes. To make the caramel, place the butter, sugar and golden syrup in a saucepan over a medium heat and stir until sugar melts. Bring to the boil and cook for eight to 10 minutes, keeping an eye on it. Add the cream and cook, stirring for two minutes. Add the peanuts and combine. Pour this over the brownie base and return to oven for 15 to 18 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes then refrigerate. Melt 200g dark (70%) chocolate with 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil and pour over the top. Refrigerate and slice. It helps if you use a warm knife!

CENTRAL GARDEN COURTYARD

School houses A contemporary model of boarding builds on Wesley’s philosophy and principles, writes Liz McLachlan

W

esley College has welcomed the first 35 students to its new $17-million senior years’ residential learning centre, integrated within the senior school of its Glen Waverley campus. The centre’s opening marks the reintroduction of boarding to Wesley College in Melbourne and follows its successes in residential learning in regional Victoria and Western Australia. An official opening by Victorian Governor Linda Dessau is planned for November 14. The aptly named Learning in Residence centre is light years beyond what most parents would traditionally associate with school boarding, with no large institutional dormitory blocks in sight. Instead a collection of eight stylish contemporary architect-designed houses with extensive decks is artfully arranged around a landscaped central garden courtyard. Designed by acclaimed Melbourne design practice Cox Architecture, the overall effect has far more in common with Grand Designs than St Trinian’s. At the heart of each house there’s a large light-filled shared space designed to make students feel at home with oak floorboards, a natural stone-tiled fireplace, table and banquette seating for reading and lounging. Each house has eight twin-share student bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and mentor living quarters. Residential students will eat their meals at long refectory tables in a new 240-seat communal dining hall shared with other senior year students and they will have access to the campus’ music, sport and drama facilities. The dining complex includes four learning and recreation spaces and will provide a hub

for the senior years’ students after-school and weekend curriculum. Three staff houses and an administration and laundry building complete the Learning in Residence centre. Wesley College principal Dr Helen Drennen says the school developed a new and contemporary model for student boarding in years 10, 11 and 12 after much investigation and research into successful boarding schools around the world. The new model also builds on Wesley’s philosophy and principles in operation at its Clunes outdoor education centre in Victoria and the Yiramalay Wesley Studio School in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. “The design translates the importance of cultural and social engagement in the learning process for a modern world and supports the full integration of our residential and day students,” Helen says. Learning in Residence director Damon Emtage says the residential program is designed to be inclusive, integrated and holistic. “The new facilities and curriculum, aside from the residences themselves, are for all senior students. Every part of the program is integrated within the senior school so there is a seamless transition of support for all students – there are no divisions between day and residential students and every member of staff is a point of contact for every student.” Damon says the Learning in Residence program recognises that learning is a continuous process that doesn’t stop with the end of the school day at 3.30pm. The Learning in Residence curriculum focuses on student development with academic, employment,

A coeducational independent school, Wesley College is Australia’s largest school by enrolment and has three metropolitan Melbourne campuses at St Kilda Road, Glen Waverley and Elsternwick, residential campuses at Clunes in Victoria and Yiramalay Wesley Studio School in Western Australia as well as outdoor education centres at Healesville, Gippsland and near Portland.

extension and health and well-being programs. Students will have the choice of sessions including subject masterclasses, extension and remediation tutoring, vocational certification and yoga and strengthening classes. Wesley College plans to enrol a balance of international and Australian students, including students from metropolitan Melbourne, rural and regional Australia and indigenous students from Yiramalay. Wesley College’s brief to Cox Architecture emphasised the need for all students to feel secure and at home. Project architect Brett Seakins says the design team researched the concept and meaning of home in different cultures, particularly south-east Asian and indigenous Australian. “It was critical to achieve a balance between privacy and observation. Maintaining open lines of observation from the dwellings through to the central landscape was just as important as providing a bedroom and study nook that the students could feel was their own territory. “The level of connection builds gradually from student bedrooms with their private nooks to living areas and shared spaces such as the terraced fire-pit and recreation rooms within the adjacent dining hall,” Brett says. To minimise disruption to students and the school, the houses were built offsite, two at a time, by specialist prefabrication builder Prebuilt. The houses, broken down in modules, took a day to put together followed by two to three weeks of finishing work. The exterior is finished in engineered timber and charcoal metal cladding that wraps over the roof and down the walls.


LEARNING IN RESIDENCE AT WESLEY COLLEGE

BOARDING RETURNS TO WESLEY At Wesley, we recognise that young people are intellectual, emotional, physical, social, cultural and spiritual human beings. That’s why our new Learning in Residence program is carefully designed to enhance development across each of these dimensions. State of the art boarding facilities are available for senior students (Years 10 - 12) at our Glen Waverley campus. Enrolments are now open for full-time and weekly boarding options.

Alexa Park Residences

The selling point

Contemporary architect-designed apartments at an Essendon address on the city tram line with city or park views at an affordable price.

A

lexa Park Residences at 1050 Mount Alexander Road is an affordable entry point to one of northern Melbourne’s most sought-after areas, with the added incentives of stamp-duty savings in a building already under construction. Apartments in the seven-storey Essendon

development start from $357,000 compared to the suburb’s $1.1 million-plus median for free-standing homes. Although construction began soon after the building’s sales release earlier this year, developer Accord PG is absorbing the cost of the stamp-duty savings for buyers. This affordability, along with an

address on the city tram line, an adjoining park and proximity to cafes, shops and schools, is proving popular with buyers, says CBRE residential projects managing director Andrew Leoncelli. Essendon’s leafy boulevards and grand Victorian and Edwardian houses and

mansions, wide choice of schools, proximity to the city and thriving cafe society have long made it a highly desirable address, he says. “At Alexa you can live in Essendon on the city tram line with city or park views, surrounded by extremely expensive houses, at a very affordable price.” Accord PG has an association with builder Buildcorp and was able to begin building without waiting to reach a sales target. Buyers have a short waiting period with settlement planned for the second quarter of next year. “Alexa buyers can benefit from stamp-duty savings without having to wait years for construction,” Andrew says. Two-thirds of the project’s 85-plus apartments have been reserved; but he says there are still residences available with city views or outlooks over Cliff Allison Reserve, which adjoins Alexa. The majority of the apartments are in one and two-bedroom layouts and have been designed for optimal efficiency by architects ClarkeHopkinsClarke, with an emphasis on storage, natural light and ventilation. The open-plan living areas are finished with engineered oak floorboards and have full-height sliding windows to private outdoor spaces. Most apartments have an integrated desk in living areas or bedrooms. There are two three-bedroom penthouses and options to combine apartments on upper levels to form further three-bedroom layouts. All apartments have parking and storage in one of two secure basement levels and audio-visual intercoms. Liz McLachlan

Location, location Alexa is eight kilometres from the CBD and its residents will be a few metres from Cliff Allison Reserve and the tram stop and moments from local cafes and gyms. Walking, it’s 11 minutes to Essendon station and an easy distance to St Therese’s and Essendon primary schools, Penleigh and Essendon Grammar and Lowther Hall. By bike, Alexa is five minutes from Queen’s Park and seven minutes from the Moonee Ponds Creek Trail, which ends in Docklands. Local shops include Puckle Street and Highpoint Shopping Centre.

DESIGN

Grey natural stone benchtops and splashbacks feature in Alexa’s kitchens with an elegant shadow line between benchtop and joinery. The natural stone is matched to a grey, white and oak palette. Kitchens have oak laminate display shelving with overhead cupboards and grey under-bench joinery. AEG appliances include a multi-function stainless-steel oven, stainless-steel gas four-burner cooktop and concealed range hood. Most kitchens include an integrated Fisher & Paykel dish drawer with integrated dishwashers in three-bedroom apartments.

There’s immaculate attention to design and detail in Alexa’s bathrooms, starting with a full-height feature wall of mosaic tiling. The rest of the bathroom is finished in large-format porcelain tiles and the floating oak laminate vanity is topped with white Caesarstone. A huge mirrored cupboard reaches from the vanity to the ceiling and its rounded edges reference the building’s curved architecture. The walk-in shower has a frameless glass screen and linear grate and the toilet has a concealed cistern. The shower, tap and toilet fittings are all bright copper.

Architects ClarkeHopkinsClarke designed Alexa to complement its triangular site, giving all apartments abundant natural light in living areas and bedrooms. The 18 ground-floor apartments have garden courtyards of up to 75 square metres – five apartments have as much or more space outside as inside. Balconies generally range from seven to 19.6 square metres. The building is finished with bronze laser-cut metal screens, concrete and timber, with curves and cut-outs creating a dynamic facade with solid and clear glass balustrades protecting balconies.

Looking pretty as a picture kerbside, this period abode is ready to change owners after 36 years … and it’s chockful of promise. There’s the possibility of extending up, not just for space, but to get bay views. And the block of about 493 square metres makes possible dreams of spreading out the back (STCA). A great locale has the train station and Botanic Gardens within a five-minute stroll, and Nelson Place dining precinct and waterfront are reached in 10. The house has three bedrooms and a bright bathroom (original lemon tub and pedestal basin) ranged along a hallway, which ends at the big kitchen. A lounge room links with a dining room next to the kitchen, which has timber cabinetry and gas appliances. A large rumpus room at the back accesses a study and bathroom with second toilet. The pretty backyard has a shed.

With a backyard dedicated to entertainment, this property will attract people looking for style and substance in equal measure. The house, on a great block of about 700 square metres, has been revamped inside to a high standard – the large main bedroom’s en suite opens out to the pool area … the other three bedrooms share a chic bathroom with freestanding tub. Living areas include a carpeted lounge room with cast-iron fireplace, and a tiled family-meals zone opening onto a covered deck. The kitchen has glossy white cabinetry, granite benchtops and Bosch appliances. Next to a glass-framed pool and spa, the garage is converted to include a home theatre set-up and cable TV.

The Allotment, The Address, The Attraction Period character and present day comfort explain why its 36 years since this three bedroom, two bathroom home was last on the market. In addition, its deep, wide rear garden illustrates the attraction of a generous allotment on a tree-lined street so close to the bay that the sea breeze is an appealing accompaniment. Scope to renovate when ready, STCA, can be considered from today’s engaging proportions including central living and dining areas, a substantial separate kitchen and a family room that reveals the garden. The option to extend upstairs is inspired by the idea of bright new spaces with bay views, a prospect that further enhances the future of a residence with a rich family past. Walk to the beach, wander to the Botanic Gardens and reach transport, schools and Nelson Place in moments.

63 MARIBYRNONG & HOBSONS BAY STAR WEEKLY \ OCTOBER 19, 2016


SPORT STARWEEKLY.COM.AU

Demons spur on draft pick By Tara Murray Kyneton’s Ainslie Kemp was among the nervous footballers gathered for the inaugural AFL women’s draft last week. In the room was the best football talent from across Victoria, and some from across Australia, all hoping to hear their names called. The 19-year-old had to wait until the second half of the draft to hear her name. Melbourne, which with the Western Bulldogs is one of the pioneering AFL clubs of women’s football, called her name at pick 88. “To be honest, it hasn’t sunk in,” Kemp said the day after the draft. “It was incredible being there, I can’t describe it – there was so many people getting selected. “I was with my mum and boyfriend. I cried when I was selected, then I looked over at my mum and she was worse than me.” Having played for Melbourne in an exhibition game earlier this year, the VU Western Spurs’ young gun knew her name was on the radar, but she wasn’t taking anything for granted. “I had meetings with a couple of clubs, but I wasn’t getting my hopes up,” she said. “I didn’t want to get cocky thinking I would be selected. I didn’t have a preference where I played – I just wanted to play next year. “As I had previously played with Melbourne, it felt special to be selected by them.”

Kemp, who played junior football at Trentham before being part of Kyneton’s first youth girls side and then with Bendigo Thunder, will be around some familiar faces at the Demons. Spurs coach Debbie Lee is women’s football operations manager at the Demons, while Spurs teammates Shelley Scott, Alyssa Mifsud and Sarah Lampard were also selected by the Demons. She said she was especially thrilled to see Lampard selected.

‘‘

I didn’t have a preference where I played – I just wanted to play

’’

- Ainslie Kemp “It will allow us to develop together,” she said. “It could be the key next year and the difference between the good and great sides.” Kemp said the travelling from Kyneton each week to train and play with the Spurs had been worth it. “I think that everything that I’ve done has influenced my game. Moving from playing regional to premier football has helped me.”

Ainslie Kemp has been picked by Melbourne for the AFL women’s league. (Damjan Janevski)

SPORT Senior Clubbers claim premiership points A five-wicket haul from Emmett Bronca and a pair of 50s from Joseph Blake and Konrad Kurta puts Yarraville Club in a commanding position after day one of their Victorian Turf Cricket Association clash with Tullamarine last weekend. The Clubbers became the first side to claim premiership points in senior division, rolling the home side for 140 en route to 2-165 at stumps, putting a stranglehold on the contest. Unveiling boom recruit Will Sheridan – who comes from Premier Cricket outfit Monash Tigers with 12 first-class games with Victoria to his name – Yarraville took control with a new ball, and never gave it back throughout

their 41 overs on the field. While Sheridan had a tidy start with 3-42, Bronca stole the show, grabbing 5-38 off a dozen classy overs. With 39 overs to bat, the visitors had a slight scare when Jonathon Blake (3) departed early. But that brought Joseph Blake (67) and Kurta (70) together, and they re-asserted control with a 136-run stand. Kurta’s dismissal late in the day brought Sheridan to the crease and, with a century for Monash last season, he is more than capable of piling on the runs when he resumes on 13 this week. In north west division, Footscray United face a difficult chase on day two after they

dismissed Haig Fawkner for 259 in the first day’s penultimate over. Srinath Vanapalli was the pick of the bowlers with 4-46 off 22.2 overs, while Syed Abbas was good with the new ball, snaring 2-34 off 18 overs. Altona North were 0-57 chasing Laverton’s 170 at the close of play, while Seddon is on the brink of defeat after being dismissed for 113 by West Coburg. West Coburg is already 4-101, with Seddon needing a minor miracle to avoid losing first innings points when play resumes on Saturday. Ewen McRae

IN THE DOGHOUSE Much has been written in recent weeks about the contribution that the medical people have at our sporting clubs, and rightly so. Over the years I have seen many doctors and surgeons who have made it possible for footballers and others to not only continue their careers, but more importantly, enjoy life after the punishment of a professional sporting career. The long lasting effects on the body after two or three hundred games of football vary, but very few players get off scot free. Most will shrug their shoulders and say it is just part of the game and while that is true, they should expect to lead a normal post-sport life. The Bulldogs doctors Jake Lansberger and Gary Zimmerman have been around the club for decades and deserve the plaudits for their work this season and for what they have done in the past. Werribee Football Club was well served by Dr Greg Anderson until he retired last year after more than two decades of service with the Tigers. The Doc has always been a very colourful character and that should certainly come to the fore at his ‘roast’. The event will take place on Friday, November 18 from 7pm at The Views Bar & Grill at Werribee Park Golf Club and tickets are available through Darren Hellmann on 9741 6688 or dhellmann@werribeefc.com. au. The Doc - who is a pants dropping youtube star - will be roasted by Donald McDonald, Simon Atkins, Greg Welsh, Paul Satterley, Bruce Montgomery and Frank Lesiputty, plus there’ll be a few surprises and comedian Des Dowling. Good thing he is not easily embarrassed.

■ The

Dogs win in the long run By Ewen McRae Footscray Edgewater overcame a bizarre mis-measured pitch to register a strong Premier Cricket win over St Kilda on Saturday, before falling to Melbourne on Sunday. The Saturday game at Harry Trott Oval saw the Dogs and Saints battle it out on a pitch that was later discovered to be eight feet longer than regulation, leaving Dogs coach Steve Chapman scratching his head. “There was a lot of guys saying the pitch was too long,” he said. “But we didn’t really believe it until we measured it after the match. “I don’t know how it happened, but I know Jeremy Hart was ropeable with how he bowled and now it makes a bit more sense.” With the unusual conditions, the Dogs grabbed an early Saints wicket after losing the toss and were largely able to restrict the scoring of the home side’s top order. Only Josh Manning (94no) got away from the Dogs, but a good team bowling performance

from Lucas Dredge (3-37) and Hart (3-42) kept the Saints to 197. In reply for the Dogs, Dean Russ put together one of his finest innings with a sparkling 103 not out to guide the Dogs home with nearly three overs to spare. Chapman said that although Russ had set high standards with his batting over the years, Saturday’s innings was something special. “You always feel with Dean that if he gets through 15 to 20 balls, he is a good chance of posting a big score,” Chapman said. “I told him afterwards not to under-estimate just how good that innings was. He was the biggest influence on the game and that hundred was of the highest quality.” The win meant the Dogs returned to Merv Hughes Oval on Sunday with a perfect record and confidence high when they took on the might of Melbourne. Unfortunately for the hosts, the game did not go quite to plan, the Dogs batted first and posted 7-191 from their 50 overs.

Russ (44) was again among the runs, while Timothy Buszard (62no) and Matthew Gudde (31) shared an important partnership through the middle of the innings. In defending the total, the Dogs struggled for wickets against a strong Demons line-up, with just three wickets falling in the 36.1 overs bowled before rain set in. Melbourne’s 3-140 was enough to deliver the visitors a win under Duckworth-Lewis. Chapman ended the weekend content with splitting the two games, giving the Dogs some strong momentum early in the season. “I think we were all pretty happy with how we performed,” he said. “Even though we lost the Melbourne game, we felt we played pretty well. “There is lots to be pleased and enthused about early in the season. “Plenty of lads are getting a go and contributing in one or more discipline, so if we can continue that this week we’ll be in a strong position early in the season.”

Werribee Park Golf Club is holding its 40th anniversary dinner on Saturday, December 10 at The Views from 6.30pm. The club wants to acknowledge the work done by the original Board and Committee which oversaw the construction of the course. In golf club years, 40 is not a big number but certainly significant to warrant such a celebration. Keen golfer and Werribee Park member Merv Hughes will be the guest speaker and I will be the host for the evening. I promise not to let Merv talk about his two holes in one.

Young bowler’s exciting times By Tara Murray The rise of Werribee cricketer Matthew Watt continues. Having represented his state at the under-15 national championships earlier this year, Watt recently returned from the under-17 national championships, in which he played for a Cricket Australia XI side selected on the strength of performances at the under-15 event. “We were a bottom-age side playing against top age teams,” he said. “We won two of eight matches and tied another match against Tasmania. We played some really good cricket but unfortunately lost a few games. “The side gelled really well … we all met up just three days beforehand.” Watt is the first to admit he didn’t have the best tournament at the under-17 event in Queensland, but he said he would learn from the experience. “I only took one wicket and made six runs,” he said. “It was a great experience to bowl to players like Austin Waugh [son of former Australian captain Steve]. They were tough players to bowl to.” The medium-to-fast bowler only found out a month before the tournament that he would be playing. “The bowling coach from Cricket Victoria said that he believed I would get a chance,” he said. “ I was excited to get the opportunity.”

Returning home from Queensland, the 16-year-old’s attention has quickly turned to local cricket with Werribee. He’s playing in both the juniors and senior for the Victorian Sub-district Cricket Association club. “I started playing cricket at under-9s at Werribee Centrals,” he said. “At under-13s, I moved over to Werribee and we won a flag the first year. Centrals didn’t have a team so I moved across with my mates.” A move to Premier Cricket in the next couple of years looks inevitable – he’s already had one offer to play in the state’s top competition. “I had an offer to play at Footscray Edgewater,” he said. “I want to keep growing at Werribee first and then I’ll hopefully make the move to Premier Cricket.” Watt has his fingers crossed that he will be part of the Australian under-16 team that will travel to Dubai to take on Pakistan in a limited overs series. He was named as a standby player. Watt is the monthly nominee for the Don Deeble Rising Star Award. The award is run by Sunshine Western Region Sports Club and Star Weekly. Watt will receive $1000 donated by the Yarraville Club Cricket Club and other prizes that will assist him in achieving his sports goals. The Don Deeble Rising Star Award recognises young athletes in the western suburbs who have achieved outstanding results at a state and/or national level.

Tale of two sports teases Sunbury star Sunbury’s Sarah Lampard entered the inaugural AFL women’s draft thinking she was a slight chance of being selected. After all, she had played only one season of football. “It was hard to tell as there was so much good talent,” Lampard recalled this week. “I went to a talent search day earlier in the year run by [AFL-listed players] Daisy Pearce and Darren Flanigan. I went really well and they asked me to join the state academy. The next day I was training with Daisy and Melissa Hickey, who suggested I join a VFL team.” In fact, Lampard joined the VU Western Spurs under the tuition of women’s football legend Debbie Lee. On Wednesday, Lampard’s name was called at pick 134 by the Melbourne Football Club. Despite being one of the last players selected,

she didn’t give up hope. “I’m just ecstatic, it still feels like a dream,” she said. “I was at home with my dad and brother. I knew there were a few more picks for the Victorian teams and I was hoping I was a chance. We had technical issues … we had to wait to hear my name and we went nuts when we heard I’d been selected.” At the Demons, Lampard will be reunited with Lee, the football operations manager. She’ll also be joined by Spurs teammates Ainslie Kemp, Shelley Scott and Alyssa Mifsud, who were all drafted. “It’s great as you obviously know how they play,” Lampard says. “Debbie has been involved at Melbourne for a long time. It’s really exciting to have her involved.” Making Lampard’s successful move into football more impressive is the fact she’s been juggling football and basketball this year.

Most weekends she would play football with the Spurs then suit up for one, sometimes two, basketball games with the Sunbury Jets. She was part of the Jets’ Big V division 1 championship side which went through the season undefeated. “It’s been a couple of crazy months,” Lampard says. “There were a few clashes [of the two sports], about three or four games. I would go from playing football straight to basketball. I was lucky the training didn’t clash. Some Mondays I’d feel it a bit when my legs were sore.” Lampard says she will see how things go before deciding whether to focus on just one sport. “Football at present has better opportunities, but I’ll see how it goes.” Tara Murray

Sports shorts Bowls

Yarraville Footscray grabbed its first win of the Premier bowls season at the weekend, overcoming Bundoora RSL to win by three rinks to one. In a tightly contested afternoon, Yarraville Footscray came away with the win via a 77 (16)-62 (2) scoreline, with the one rink it lost only falling out of its grasp by a single shot. The news was not as good for the two division 2 sides, with one failing to win a rink against Maribyrnong Park in going down 91 (18)-65 (0), while the other had a heartbreaking single shot loss to Brunswick, 81 (14)-80 (4). The Premier side will travel again this weekend to play winless MCC.

Athletics

Western Athletics runner Nardine Bainbridge represented Victoria in the Melbourne Marathon on Sunday, turning in a personal best performance in finishing eighth in a strong field. Bainbridge’s time of 2:51.47 was a club record in the gruelling discipline, and was all the more impressive given windy conditions made for a difficult run. Fellow Western Athletics runner Daniel Barlow also tackled the marathon and finished a credible 62nd overall in a time of 2:48.02. Michael Mirindi finished 18th in the men’s half-marathon, while Adrian Jeffkins finished 809th. Alyssa Mifsud has made the successful transition from basketball and will line up for Melbourne in the AFL women’s competition.

Spirit of sport

AFL draft thrill for Spurs By Ewen McRae Seven VU Western Spurs have been picked up by AFL clubs for the inaugural women’s league season starting in February. More than 150 players were drafted to the league’s eight clubs last Wednesday in an afternoon of nerves and anticipation across the country as players waited to find out if they would be picked up and by which clubs. The Spurs didn’t have to wait long for one of their players to join the competition, with Ashleigh Guest snapped up by Greater Western Sydney at pick 16 to send the former state softball player north. “I was lucky enough to be in the room so that was super exciting,” Guest said. “Everyone was pretty quiet and nervous, waiting for their name to be called out. “I’ve been playing footy for eight years, and you just never think that something like this is going to happen. It never really crossed my mind until [Spurs coach] Debbie Lee got the Melbourne Football Club on board and got the

exhibition games started a few years ago.” The influence of Lee on all the players at the Spurs is not lost on Guest, who said every one of the women now on AFL lists and those who got them there are trailblazers. “The work that Debbie has done over many years – she’s the true trailblazer that started a Womens club 25 years ago when there was no league. This all started a long, long time ago.” Bree White was the next Spurs player to be drafted when Collingwood read her name out at pick 38. Despite playing for Melbourne in every exhibition game in the past few years, she said she couldn’t wait to pull on the famous Magpies guernsey. “To be a part of the biggest sporting club in Australia is pretty exciting,” White said. “Seeing the hype around the competition in the build-up to the draft and the games, you can really see where the women’s game is going. The support has been fantastic and I can’t wait to get stuck into pre-season.” A quartet of Spurs were selected by the

Demons, with Alyssa Mifsud (pick 40), Shelley Scott (pick 41), Ainslie Kemp (pick 88) and Sarah Lampard (pick 134) all now in the Dees’ squad. Mifsud, a former basketballer who has just completed her first year of football at any level, was overjoyed to be joining the Demons. “I still can’t believe how quickly everything has happened – I’m still pinching myself” she said. “I always wanted to play footy, but for various reasons basketball became my focus, but when the talk of an AFL women’s league picked up there was a definite motivation to switch and get drafted, so this is unreal. There’s a real energy around and we want to make sure we put our best foot forward and represent the game as best we can. “We are the first lot and we definitely want to show the rest of Australia what we’ve got because it’s been hidden for a long time.” Helen Roden, was drafted to Collingwood as a rookie after completing her first year of football at the Spurs.

Western Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge was honoured at the prestigious Sports Australia Hall of Fame awards night, receiving the Spirit of Sport award for his selfless gesture in giving his premiership medal to injured Dogs captain Bob Murphy. While the Hall of Fame inducts new members each year, the Spirit of Sport award has only been awarded five times previously and is meant to reflect performances that are very special and destined to be part of the Australian sports history. Beveridge was holidaying overseas, but sent a video message. “The modesty, generosity and mateship criteria of the award are great words,” Beveridge said. “They reflect our football club in its current state and it’s our challenge to keep it there.”
