Sunbury’s carpark relief By Serena Seyfort Help is finally on the way to solve what many residents argue is Sunbury’s biggest issue – carparking. The state government has announced more than 300 new carparking spaces are on the way for Sunbury station. Public Transport Minister Jacinta Allan said the exact location of the new carparks was being finalised, but that funding had been secured for construction, which is expected to start early 2019. The project will be funded in the 2018-19 state budget in which $60 million will be allocated for 2000 extra carparking spaces,
secure bicycle storage facilities and better pedestrian access at Melbourne train stations. Sunbury MP Josh Bull said the government was still in discussion with local stakeholders and Hume council to work around the “complex mix of land ownership and regulatory arrangements” in Sunbury CBD to secure the best site for the carparks. He hinted a multi-storey approach was likely. “There’s only a limited amount of space available,” he said. “It only makes sense to go up.” He said he was thrilled to be able to help alleviate the frustration surrounding Sunbury’s lack of carparking. Local groups and residents have been
pushing for more parking in Sunbury CBD for years, with the existing carparks at Sunbury station usually filled by commuters before 7.30am. Sunbury Residents Association president Peter Free said the announcement came as a great relief after a long-time campaign by the association for more parking in the town. “That’s fantastic news,” Mr Free said. “It will take pressure off the rest of the town – at the moment we’re really struggling.” Some local businesses have been attributing the lack of carparking in Sunbury CBD to a significant downturn in local business. Sunbury Business Association secretary and shop owner Sylvia Unferdorben told Star
Weekly in August that her discussions with community members revealed accessibility to the town was Sunbury’s “biggest issue”. She said residents had told her they no longer bothered going into Sunbury to shop, instead preferring the longer parking times and availability of carparks at Watergardens and Highpoint shopping centres. Hume residents labelled traffic and parking management as the municipality’s biggest issue in the council’s Community Survey 2017-18. Almost 50 per cent of respondents from the Jacksons Creek ward, which is made up of Sunbury, Bulla and Oaklands Junction, nominated carparking as the main issue in the ward.

Medcraft rejects social media By Serena Seyfort Sunbury councillor Jack Medcraft says he “can’t be stuffed dealing with social media” after he was suspended from the council last week over a comment he made online. The Jacksons Creek ward councillor was also removed as Hume council’s portfolio spokesperson for indigenous support amid a flurry of social media reactions to a racist remark made on his personal Facebook page on April 4. Cr Medcraft said he was “surprised” by the response to the post.
After community backlash, mayor Geoff Porter issued a statement on the council’s Facebook page on April 9 announcing Cr Medcraft’s suspension. Cr Porter said he was “disappointed” by the comments posted by Cr Medcraft. “In a frank conversation, he took responsibility for the comments and gave an immediate unreserved apology,” the statement read. “Cr Medcraft has also informed me that he will undertake cultural diversity training and issue an apology to the community.”
Cr Medcraft later “sincerely” apologised in a post on his personal Facebook page. “I never intended any hurt or malice towards others, nor did I appreciate that my comments did not reflect well in my role as a councillor or a community representative,” the post read. “But I appreciate how my comments may have offended some people and as a result, I have volunteered to undertake cultural diversity training and I will make every effort to be more understanding.” Cr Medcraft has been suspended for two meetings – an ordinary meeting on April 16
and an internal meeting. He will be re-instated by April 30 when the council considers its budget. Some community members took to Facebook and Twitter labelling the punishment “pathetic”, and asking why Cr Medcraft was not sacked. Cr Medcraft came under fire in September, 2016, after racially inflammatory posts on Facebook. Cr Porter said the council had received a number of inquiries about the issue but he said the sanctions were in line with the councillor code of conduct.
Emergency open day
Sunbury’s iconic Emu Bottom Homestead has been put on the market for the first time in 50 years. The 25-hectare site, boasting what is believed to be the oldest surviving homestead in Victoria, has been listed for sale with Ernst and Young Real Estate. The property has been owned by Hedley and Jane Elliott since 1968 and is leased to the Epicurean Group, which hosts about 100 weddings and functions a year within the grounds and in two dining facilities. Ernst and Young Real Estate’s Ben Desmond said the property had already received a lot of interest. “It is incredibly rare for a property of this calibre and with such historical significance to be in private ownership for so long,” Mr
Desmond said. “Revenue generation through the existing lease and business activities, and the development potential, make it quite a unique opportunity.” Seven years are left on the current lease, under which the owners receive a base rent plus a percentage of gross sales. Mr Desmond said the property, at 410 Racecourse Road, had planning provision for high-quality accommodation, subject to council approval. “It’s uncommon for town planning schedules on Green Wedge sites like Emu Bottom to make provision for otherwise prohibited uses,” he said. “Any approved development could greatly enhance the existing business activities, or a new owner could go in another direction entirely.”

The stone homestead was built in 1836 by Sunbury’s first settler, George Evans. It is listed on the Victorian Heritage Register as “one of, if not the oldest surviving homesteads in Victoria”. The National Trust of Australia has given the homestead an “A” classification, determining its preservation to be essential. The property was restored by the Elliotts in 1968-69. The homestead was named Emu Bottom by Mr Evans because the low-lying ground of the valley was, at the time, well frequented by flocks of emus. Some estimates have valued the property about $6 million. Expressions of interest for the property close on May 9.
The community is being given an opportunity to look inside the new Victorian Emergency Management Institute at Mount Macedon on Sunday, April 29. The world-class training facility, which offers programs and activities for the emergency management sector to prepare for, respond to, and recover from emergencies, officially opened in February after undergoing extensive renovations. The site, at 601 Mount Macedon Road, Mount Macedon, was formally home to the Australian Emergency Management Institute. It was bought by the Victorian Government in 2016, along with the golf course, which is managed by Mount Macedon Golf Club. Emergency Management Commissioner Craig Lapsley said a lot of hard work had gone into the institute’s redevelopment. “It has been great to see the institute leading the way, fostering multi-agency training and developing the next generation of leaders in emergency management,” Mr Lapsley said. The accommodation facilities have been upgraded and contain 52 rooms and new technologies have been installed. The 75-seat theatre has been refurbished. The institute’s open day will offer emergency services displays, tours of the building and gardens, virtual reality demonstrations and golf competitions. There will also be a barbecue fundraiser for local Scout groups and kids activities such as face-painting. It will run from 11am-3pm. Serena Seyfort

Macedon, Mount Macedon and Hesket residents will find themselves belonging to the federal electorate of McEwen under a Redistribution Committee for Victoria proposal. Published early this month, the proposal would see the transfer of a projected 2734 voters in Hesket, Macedon and Mount Macedon from Bendigo to McEwen to better balance the electorates’ voter numbers and local interests. Voters in those towns would be placed together with those in Gisborne and Sunbury.

Adoption brightens lives Craigieburn’s Ken Pang and Dean Robertson know the joy that an adopted greyhound can bring to your life. They adopted their greyhound, Rocket, in 2015, as part of the Greyhound Adoption Program. Rocket was the 200th greyhound fostered as part of Tarrengower Prison’s prison pet partnership with Greyhound Racing Victoria. The prisoners help prepare the greyhounds for life as a family pet by spending time socialising and exercising the dogs, helping them learn new skills.
Mr Robertson said Rocket had become an important part of the family in the past three years. “Greyhounds are great pets. They are a very easy dog to have, as long as you walk them for about 20 minutes each day,” Mr Robertson said. The Greyhound Adoption Program will be hosting a national adoption day on Sunday, April 29 at 80 Northcorp Boulevard, Broadmeadows, from 11am-3pm. Details: gap.grv.org.au Laura Michell

Pets Haven dealt charity blow By Serena Seyfort Woodend’s Pets Haven Foundation has been stripped of its accreditation as a charity for abusing its position. The Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) last week revoked the charity status of the Woodend animal shelter. ACNC commissioner Gary Johns said the animal shelter had been involved in serious misconduct.
“Pets Haven Foundation has abused their position as a trusted charity in the community,” Dr Johns said. “Revocation is the most serious action we can take when a charity has been mismanaged. “In most cases, we are able to resolve issues with charities without reaching this stage. In this instance, we have been left with no choice but to revoke Pets Haven Foundation charity status.” The commission says it has evidence of the organisation breaching the standards
required of an Australian charity dating from December, 3, 2012. Pets Haven Foundation has announced it will appeal the ACNC’s decision. “We are willing to submit ourselves to any reasonable voluntary undertaking with ACNC to address any concerns raised by ACNC,” it said in a media release. “Given that the issues highlighted related mostly to the infancy stages of our establishment dated back to 2012, we are confident that the current processes will satisfy the requirements
of ACNC in regards to maintaining public trust and confidence.” The organisation said it had fully complied with the ACNC’s record-keeping requirements. It said it would continue to operate as a not-for-profit organisation and would continue to rescue and re-home animals. With its charity status revoked, Pets Haven Foundation can no longer access commonwealth charity tax concessions and cannot display the ACNC’s tick of registration.
We remember them Thousands of people are expected to convene at Mount Macedon Memorial Cross at daybreak on Wednesday, April 25 for the Mt Macedon Anzac Dawn Service. Run entirely by local volunteers, the service is one of the largest dawn services of remembrance held in Victoria to recognise servicemen and women. Service committee chairman Bruce Mildenhall said the committee had been working hard to ensure the 2018 service would continue its tradition of commemorating significant events in Australia’s history of service. “The focus of this year’s service will be on the centenary of the famous Battle of Villers Bretonneux, fought on Anzac Day 1918, and the enduring links forged between that French community and the Australians,” Mr Mildenhall said. The committee encourages as many people as possible to attend the service, which will
begin at 5.45am on Anzac Day. About 3000 people have attended the service in recent years so the committee advises people to aim to arrive by 5.15am. Private vehicles will be unable to drive to Mount Macedon Memorial Cross for safety reasons. Free buses will operate from around the shire and Sunbury to the memorial service. Bookings are required for the buses which will leave from Gisborne train station, Woodend train station, Romsey Community Hub, Lancefield Mechanics Hall, Riddells Creek Primary School and Sunbury train station. Visit organscoaches.com.au to book a place. A shuttle bus will take people from Tony Clarke Recreation Reserve in Macedon to the service from 4.15am through to 5.20am.

Bullied teen takes a stand By Tate Papworth A Caroline Springs teenager has turned a harrowing experience into the catalyst for change. Monique Mastrobattista, 14, suffered at the hands of bullies after transferring to a new school in 2016 and said the experience had a lasting affect on her. “I had a very bad case of bullying in 2016. I moved to a new school and didn’t know anyone and got really badly bullied,” she said. “I developed really bad anxiety from it and had a really bad stutter.” However, instead of letting the experience haunt her, Ms Mastrobattista has used it as an opportunity to start a bigger conversation. “I was seeing a psychologist and since I couldn’t talk, she told me to write down my feelings. “As I was writing these feelings down, it slowly started to turn into something bigger.” From Ms Mastrobattista’s notes emerged My Discreet Bully, an illustrated book which provides an insight into the scourge of bullying. “It’s based on my own experience so it wasn’t very difficult for me to write,” she said. “After that, we contacted an illustrator, a publishing company and things started to happen. Now the book is here, we’re trying to get it into as many schools as we possibly can.” Since releasing her book, Ms Mastrobattista, who is now homeschooled, has taken her message to schools around Victoria and even overseas. “I’ve gone into a few schools in Victoria and done a bit of a talk with the students, answered questions and done some signings – I think it really made a difference that these students were being spoken to by a younger person and not an adult,” she said. “I actually had the

mother of one boy send me a message saying she hasn’t seen him this happy in a long time and the talk really helped. “That absolutely made my day, if this even helps just one person it’s all worthwhile.” Ms Mastrobattista has also started an online kindness campaign.
“Bullying isn’t just confined to the school, there’s a huge cyber bullying problem these days too,” she said. “This isn’t just a behavioral problem now and I think we need to find new ways to tackle it or it will continue to grow.” My Discreet Bully is available in book stores and on online at www.getkind.net
Vandals strike railway again A beloved Bulla community asset has been the target of vandalism for the second time in a month. Members of the Tullamarine Live Steam Society arrived at Bulla Hill Railway station on April 11 to find some of the track’s gates had been broken, and posts and signs had been pulled from the ground. The wooden signs had been snapped and metal poles had been bent. One of the toys used to decorate the track had been torn up. Society president Kris Siderov said the “mindless vandalism” was “frustrating” for the volunteers, who put a lot of effort into maintaining the railway as an attraction for the community to enjoy. Mr Siderov said the damage had occurred some time since volunteers were last at the station on Saturday, April 7. The society is having to carry out repairs for the second time in just weeks, after it was put back about $1200-$1400 when the station house was broken into and robbed in March. The “mindless vandalism” occurred in the same week that the community tennis pavilion next door was broken into. Bulla Village Tennis Club president Larry Pelley said the pavilion clubrooms were broken into early last week. He said some coaching equipment had been stolen. Serena Seyfort

Pathway open for Ranges tracks By Serena Seyfort Two new walking and cycling tracks for the Macedon Ranges are being explored as part of a new council project. Consultancy company TRC Tourism has been appointed to look at options for a trail that connects Woodend to Macedon to Riddells Creek and a trail from Hanging Rock to Daylesford. The project will determine feasible on and off-road shared-trail route options,
development and management costs and the construction components required. Macedon Ranges council is asking interested community members and groups to get involved in discussions with the consultants as part of the Macedon Ranges Shared Feasibility Study project. Macedon Ranges Cycling Club president Brett Ellis said club members were already actively engaging with the project. He said dedicated cycling tracks in the Macedon
Ranges “would be hugely beneficial for cycling tourism in general”. He said the routes would create “a focal point in the region” and a specific reason to visit the area, similar to the reasons cyclists from Macedon Ranges Cycling Club travelled to Bright and Lilydale. Mr Ellis said the opportunity to ride on a trail would be particularly beneficial for parents wanting to ride with children because of the difficulty of riding with children on roads.
There is currently one shared trail in the Macedon Ranges, between Romsey and Lancefield. In the 2017-2027 Macedon Ranges council plan, the council said it aimed to “invest $1.1 million in planning, renewing and building new footpaths and cycling paths to improve access and community connections”. Anyone interested in the project should contact Michelle Nolte on 5422 0240 or at email@example.com
Art’s new treasure hunt Kyneton is currently the scene of an art treasure hunt for the inaugural Kyneton Contemporary Art Triennial: Force Fields. The works of 10 contemporary Australian artists are hidden in unusual sites across the town – both indoor and outdoor – until April 22. Most of the artists, who are from across the country, have been living in Kyneton and working with the community to develop their projects. Sarah Rutledge has been staying at Kyneton Motel while producing an installation in one of the rooms. Her program ‘Run Kyneton’ invites the community on a series of group running events around Kyneton to consider what the altered bodily state of being hot and sweaty brings to the experience of art. Georgie Mattingley has been working with residents at BUPA Aged Care, researching personal histories from post-war Kyneton. Jessie Stanley has been working with the
Friends of the Botanic Gardens to research the history of the gardens and the geology of the area. She has helped the group to develop a new website in the lead-up to her exhibition. The Kyneton Contemporary Art Triennial has been sponsored by a $19,500 Victorian Arts Grant. To find out what artworks are located around Kyneton and where they can be found, visit kynetoncontemporary.com A $15 ticket provides entry to most venues. Under 18s are admitted free. Serena Seyfort

FOOD REVIEW STARWEEKLY.COM.AU
CONSIDER THE SAUCE Kenny Weir takes a 180 on vegetarian food at this funky cafe At Consider The Sauce HQ, we figure if we ever went completely meat-free, our diet would be based mostly around the foods of the Mediterranean – African, European, Middle-Eastern. Your actual “vegetarian food”? Not so much. Yes, we are cynical about such stuff. Some of that is down to probably unfair baggage and previous bad experiences. Why have any truck with such food when the various national cuisines deliver meat-free food so effortlessly and with such delicious panache? No doubt that’s why we’ve gone so long without trying Eka Wholefoods. And why, after ordering, we are a mix of anticipation and crossed fingers. We need not have had any fears, as what we lunch on is very fine. The joint is the expected mix of one half wholefoods of many kinds and one half gorgeous cafe, a tranquil space in which we enjoy stopping for a while. Bennie loved his bao tempeh sliders ($12.90). The crispy, but seemingly rather salty, tempeh dances with organic kimchi, house-made peri-peri sauce, grilled shiitake mushrooms and caramelised onion. This pretty food goes down a treat. My soba noodle salad ($16.50) is even better. Joining the organic noodles are cherry tomatoes, chopped toasted almonds, black sesame seeds, cinnamon-crusted organic tofu and a sesame-lemon dressing.
EKA WHOLEFOODS CAFE Address: 129 Buckley Street, Seddon Phone: 0412 485 132
This salad is expertly done and a pleasure to consume. We depart without trying the good-looking range of sweet treats but with some brown rice and tamari in hand. It’s been wonderful to have our skepticism so wonderfully rendered daft.

Gisborne Taekwondo is the oldest Taekwondo Club in the Macedon Region since 2001.
When asked what he loves best about being owner of Harvey Norman Furniture at Watergardens, Binh Nguyen is quick with a response: “Meeting the locals in my culturally diverse patch.” Binh, 35, has been with Harvey Norman for more than eight years, gaining loads of invaluable experience in Melbourne and Sydney stores. “I started in Maribyrnong, moved to Chadstone and then packed up to help run Sydney’s Caringbah before relocating to the flagship Auburn store,” he says. “A couple of years ago, my wife and I returned to our hometown Melbourne, this time with a littlie in tow. “I felt immediately at home in the Watergardens store and I’ve loved getting to know my community, listening to what they need and presenting solutions.” “We have an exciting mix of customers and that can present the types of challenges I get a buzz
from. It might be a young couple, with a tight budget, looking for a sofa to see them through the renting years. Or it might be a family looking for a statement piece for their new home. “All our staff have the knowledge, expertise and experience to help guide that couple to the right choice. Our team have the latest trends at their fingertips and understand how to put together the right look.” “Whether people need a new dining setting or something else to give their home a fresh look, there are ways to introduce a new decor item to achieve the biggest bang for buck. “We can help with ideas – that’s what we’re all about.” Harvey Norman Furniture Watergardens, 450 Melton Highway, Taylors Lakes.

This impressive newly built abode, perched on about 1190 square metres, will have families queuing up to get in on the space, class and wonderful atmosphere on offer. It’s all about period style externally, but indoors it’s streamlined panache all the way. Elements such as matte floorboards, white plantation shutters, crisp white walls, grey carpet and chic light fittings underpin the on-point elegance found in big, bright rooms. The scene is set by double entry doors,
behind which are 2.7-metre ceilings and an open study to the left of the hallway – this then ducks down to the laundry, with double garage access at the end. The graceful main bedroom, also with bay window and along the entry hall, has walk-through wardrobes and dual-basin en suite with white subway tiling in the large shower. At the north-easterly front of the house, three fitted bedrooms are zoned off from living areas via a trendy barn-style sliding door. One bedroom has a bay window and
the sleek main bathroom and separate toilet are nearby. Neighbouring the floorboarded living hub is a carpeted theatre room behind double doors. The hub is big enough to make a 10-seat dining table look small, while the sitting area is equally roomy. Marble benches put on a fine show in the kitchen, which has a breakfast bar for four, oodles of white cupboards, white subway splashback tiles, a large walk-in pantry (with coffee bar) and shiny appliances. There’s a glazed door in the kitchen to
the back lawn, while stacker doors in the hub open to a covered merbau deck of substantial size. Double glazing throughout, ducted heating and evaporative cooling ensure effective indoor temperature control, while the garage has extra space for workshop or storage. The envy-worthy property is just four minutes by car from Gisborne Secondary College and the main shopping precinct. Calder Freeway entry is moments away.

20 SUNBURY & MACEDON RANGES STAR WEEKLY \ APRIL 17, 2018
Proudly Sponsored By
Sunbury star’s pure gold By Tara Murray Carla Krizanic has added Commonwealth Games champion to her bulging lawn bowls resume. The Sunbury bowler has won state, national and world titles – and, in the past two weeks, she’s added two-time Commonwealth Games champion to the list of achievements. Krizanic was part of the 2014 Commonwealth Games, but didn’t win a medal. She more than made up for it at the Gold Coast. “If you had asked me three years ago if I would have two world championships and two Commonwealth Games gold medals, I would have said, ‘Yeah, OK’,” she said. “It’s yet to settle in. It’ll be good to go home and celebrate with everyone from Sunbury.” Australia’s Jackaroos entered both the triples and fours as favourites, fielding the same line-ups that won world titles in 2016. But there was plenty of pressure on them, given Australia’s failure to win gold at the Games since 2006. The Jackaroos were forced to fight to the end in the fours, with all three finals close calls. “To be able to get over the line in three close games was really good,” Krizanic said. “We played Malaysia in the quarter-final and won by one shot and then needed an extra end against Canada in the semi-final. “We took confidence into the final against South Africa [knowing] that we were playing well under pressure.” Having claimed gold, Krizanic didn’t have much time to let the win sink in – she was back on the green just two hours later for the opening round of the triples. “It was about regrouping and focusing on the triples,” she said. “We put the win behind us and got through the whole triples successfully.” The 27-year-old said she had never experienced a tournament like these Games. “The atmosphere and how loud and crazy – they were amazing,” she said. “There were people singing and chanting … you never get that at bowls. “Hopefully, people realise bowls isn’t a quiet sport and can be quite entertaining.” Krizanic was due to arrive home on Monday and said one of the first places she wanted to visit was the Sunbury Bowling Club. “It helps to have a club like Sunbury behind me,” she said. “I’ll get down to the club, have a few drinks. I’ve had a number of members send messages and people come up to Queensland and support me, including the chairman.”

One goal more than enough Gisborne’s winning start to the FFV state league 5 west season has come to an end. Facing Keilor Wolves, which were also undefeated, it was always going to be a challenge for Gisborne. At stages it didn’t look like the teams would get out onto the pitch with the wet and windy weather, but the skies cleared and they got under way. The Wolves scored first in the 15th minute and they held that lead at half-time. Neither team could find the back of the net in the second half, giving the Wolves the 1-0 win. Gisborne now has two wins and a loss and sits among a group of teams on two wins. It faces Deakin Ducks this week. In state league 3 north-west, Sunbury United had a hard fought 1-1 draw with Point Cook. United scored in the third minute through Jayden Mercieca and Point Cook hit back in the 34th minute. Despite having dominated play for much of the game, United had to settle for 1-1 at half-time. Both teams had chances in the second half, but neither side could shoot a winner. United remains undefeated after three rounds, with two wins and a draw and face Upfield this week. Tara Murray

Bulldogs give new coach plenty of reasons to smile Gisborne coach Clinton Young could not have asked for any more from his charges in the opening round of the Bendigo Football League season. The Bulldogs dominated from the opening bounce on their way to a 18.9 (117)-6.8 (44) win against Kangaroo Flat. Young was thrilled to start his coaching career in such a fashion. “It was a bit unknown with the weather but it opened up a bit and it was good to start the way we did,” he said. “We had a good margin and output at half-time and I was pleased with the way everyone played after doing the hard work during the pre-season. “Nothing changed all day and the boys were well prepared. As my first game as coach it was a bit seamless.” The Bulldogs had 11 players get on the scoreboard with Jack Scanlon and Jaidyn Owen
kicking three goals each. Young said it was a real team effort across the board. “Everyone was focused on playing their own roles. Jack Reaper playing centre half-back dominated, but after that we could have had 10 to 15 other players named in the best. “Everyone played a good game.” Callum Williamson made his senior debut after rising through the ranks, while Ross Celano, who is part of Footscray’s VFL side, made his debut. Young was forced to coach from the sidelines as he recovers from injury. “I’m out for a few more weeks,” he said. “I had a setback. It might have been a blessing in disguise to be able to get the coaching part down pat and then get back out onto the field.” On Saturday, the Bulldogs will get an idea about how much they have improved in the off season when they face last year’s premiers Strathfieldsaye.
Young said they were looking forward to the contest. “It’s a good challenge and we can see where we are at.” Kyneton started its season with a thriller against South Bendigo. In a low scoring affair, the two teams had to settle for a draw, both finishing 5.10 (40). Max O’Sullivan and Jack Exell kicked two goals each for the Tigers, while Harrison Huntley was named the Tigers’ best. In netball, Gisborne defeated Kangaroo Flat 47-34 in the A-grade competition. Kyneton’s top side, which is playing in A-reserve, lost by four goals. Tara Murray Jack Reaper was best on ground in Gisborne’s season opener.

Sunbury all set for fresh season By Tara Murray Sunbury Lions are looking for improvement. After finishing fifth last year, the Lions are focused on closing the gap on the top sides in the Ballarat Football League this season. Lions’ coach Ben Jordan said last year’s result reflected where they were, but a strong pre-season was the start of something better. “Hopefully we are a better team than last year,” he said. “The guys know me a fair bit better and we’ve addressed a couple areas of the ground that were a bit weak. “I’m not expecting anything less than improvement. Finals will be the aim.” The Lions’ practice match phase started earlier than normal with a match against a group of players trying out for Essendon’s VFL side. They’ve since played matches against Gisborne and Diggers Rest and Jordan has been encouraged by what he has seen. He said it would be hard to pick a team for round one. After a less-than-ideal start to the off season for the Lions – losing Adam Short, David Kovacevic, Tom Donoghue, Jesse Flannery and Ben Said – they have regrouped and added some talented younger players to the squad.

Nathan Doyle and Tom Werner are both part of the Calder Cannons program and Liam Berry and Jiaya Mitchell have come across from Rupertswood. Aaron Christensen has returned to his junior club after a premiership with Macedon. Jack Fenner is a key position player, and Matthew Wright will add depth to the ruck
department. Jordan said they hoped to see a bit more of Grant Valles, Jack Sullivan and Jack Sheahan on the park this year. “Grant Valles did a whole pre-season down at North Melbourne [VFL] … he’s impressed in our two practice games. He’s keen to have a big season,” he said.
Kangaroos kick away for a big win Sunbury Kangaroos made it two from two in the Essendon District Football League women’s competition after a strong win against Westmeadows. Both teams entered the match on the back of big wins in round one, so it shaped up as an interesting contest. The Kangaroos were able to have more impact on the scoreboard in the first half, in what was a tight contest. They kicked away in the second half to win, 8.14 (62)-1.1 (7). Kangaroos coach Allan Walters was thrilled with the result. “It was a tough fight in the first half,” he said. “They are hard at it and still learning the game, being their first season. “We kicked away in the second half and had lots of shots on goal which is always a good thing.” Walters said he thought experience was proving the difference, with most of his side having played together last year. Both Westmeadows and the Kangaroos’ round one opponent Abefeldie are fielding teams for the first time. Louisa Martino and Carly Blythe kicked two goals each for the Kangaroos as the side continues to get chances in front of the big sticks. Walters said they would continue to work on goal kicking and said it wasn’t all bad. “Sometimes it’s perceived pressure and they’ve got a bit more time than they think,” he said. “If we’re getting shots on goal it means we’re controlling the ball.” Walters said it was a real team effort and a pretty even spread across the board. “The back six were fantastic and everyone contributed. There were no passengers and if someone is down, someone else will stand up.” This week they face Craigieburn at DS Aitken Reserve. “We’re just focusing on Craigieburn who were a good side last year,” he said of the Eagles who finished fifth in a combined EDFL and Western Region Football League competition. The Sunbury Lions got their first win of the season, knocking off Keilor. The Lions showed why they’ve been a strong side for a number of years, winning 8.7 (55)-3.1 (19, keeping the Blues scoreless in the first half. The Lions this week face Westmeadows. Tara Murray Sunbury’s Carly Blythe looks to move the ball forward. (Shawn Smits) 22 SUNBURY & MACEDON RANGES STAR WEEKLY \ APRIL 17, 2018
“Jack Sullivan hasn’t done a lot of work, so I can’t see him playing seniors in the short term. He could give us another option up forward. “Jack Sheahan has slowly increased his workload and fitness, he’s missed a lot of footy over the last few years. “He’s a good contested mark and gives us a bit of height.” Jordan said he expected Valles, Sullivan and Sheahan to play key roles in a new-look forward line. “The forward line will have to have a different look about it. I think Grant having a full season and with Jack [Sheahan] down there, they could be used as go-to players,” he said. “We’ll try some different players down that end of the ground. Trent Stead is one who can have a run in the forward line and be a target. “Hopefully if we can move the ball a bit better this year, it will create a bit of space for the forwards to work in.” Jordan said he expected Will Healy, Mick Edwards, Jack Hannett and Jayden Eales to continue their development and cement their spots in the side. The Lions will kick off their season on Saturday against Redan at Clarke Oval.

Romsey and Diggers Rest will have to wait another week to get their Riddell District Football Netball League seasons under way. The two sides were due to do battle on Saturday night in both the A-grade netball and senior football at Romsey Park, but the matches were postponed after fallen power lines cut power to the ground. In other games, Melton Centrals and Wallan won the football, defeating Rockbank and Broadford, while Rockbank and Wallan won the netball.
East Sunbury made it two from two in Essendon District Football League division 2. The Thunder led at every break to defeat Burnside Heights, 9.11 11.16 (82)-6.3 (39). The Thunder is one of two teams with two wins after the opening two rounds.
Sunbury Jets suffered their second loss of the Big V women’s state championship division. The Jets lost the first three quarters to trail by 14 points at three-quarter time. The Jets had their best quarter in the last, but it wasn’t enough, losing 78-70. The Jets men’s side won their first match of the season.
Sunbury United’s tough start to the NRL Vic first grade season has continued. After losing to Northern Thunder 44-20 in round one, the Tigers lost 40-12 to Casey Warriors on Saturday. The Tigers reserves side also had a loss, going down 42-6 to the Warriors. They sit 1-1.
The winner of Romsey Golf Club’s Algie Mitchell Shield is still yet to be decided. Jim Paton and Rob Rea took to the course on Saturday in the final, but after 13 holes decided to call off the match due to heavy winds and rain.
