Hobsons Bay Councillors have elected Cherry Lake Ward Councillor Sandra Wilson as the Mayor of Hobsons Bay for the year ahead. Cr Colleen Gates was appointed Deputy Mayor. The Mayor said helping community organisations prosper, engaging young people, social enterprise and helping the community realise their leadership potential would form part of the 2014 Mayoral Program. “I am looking forward to continuing to advocate on issues such as public transport, education and affordable housing and I await our new community engagement strategy, open space strategy and reformed residential zones that will give greater certainty to development in our municipality,” said Cr Wilson. “There will be a number of master plans finalised for our sporting precincts, which will provide wonderful opportunities, we will open the Newport Gardens Early Years Centre and start work on the Newport Youth, Library and Seniors’ centre – and planning for the future of our young people through the development of a Children and Young People’s Plan. I will also champion our natural environment, in particular our wetlands that support such an array of coastal and migratory birds. “It will be a dynamic year ahead for Hobsons Bay City Council as we celebrate our 20th anniversary in 2014 and I look forward to working with my fellow councillors to make Hobsons Bay an even better place.”

Hobsons Bay’s foreshore is popular for a range of different recreational uses.

A new team of women has taken over the reins at Hobsons Bay council, with Sandra Wilson as mayor and Colleen Gates her deputy. The two, who were elected to the council in October last year, were the only nominations at a special council meeting on Friday. They replace outgoing mayor Angela Altair and deputy Luba Grigorovitch. Cr Wilson (pictured), who represents Cherry Lake ward, emphasised that being a councillor was about working together with fellow councillors and the community. “Being a councillor is both challenging and extremely gratifying,” she said. “To be mayor certainly takes it up a notch, but I relish that challenge for the future and I look forward to

giving it my all for the next 12 months. “I think our collaboration and collective commitment to working hard for Hobsons Bay is a hallmark of this term of council. “This emphasises the fact that the business of council is indeed a team effort. “It’s about elected representatives working together ... and most importantly working together with our community. “After all, why are we here if we are not working for community?” Cr Wilson said she would champion Hobsons Bay’s natural environment and advocate for better public transport, provision of education and affordable housing. Cr Gates, who represents Wetlands ward, described Cr Wilson as a “very genuine person” and said she looked forward to working with her. \ GD

truck rally blocks road as mayor demands action yarraville

Hundreds of demonstrators brought a busy Yarraville road to a standstill yesterday in a protest calling for truck curfews on Somerville Road during school crossing times. Pupils played hopscotch and other games on the road while protesters waved placards and a banner warning of the dangerous mix of trucks and children. Marrickville Truck Action Group president Samantha McArthur said of the 21,000 trucks using inner-west streets every day, most were doing so as a shortcut between the Port of Melbourne and container yards further west. “That’s just not acceptable,” she said. “The port container movements are set to double by 2020, so this is not going away if we don’t take action. “We can already see from the way the government has been completely silent on this issue that it will not disappear. Our kids, like any kids anywhere in Melbourne, deserve clean air.” Maribyrnong mayor Grant Miles asked what it would take for Premier Denis Napthine to respond to calls for help and to look at the issue.

“It’s not too much to ask – trucks should be on the West Gate Freeway where they belong. It can be done right now.” Cr Miles has invited Transport Minister Terry Mulder to visit the area and witness the effects of the trucks for himself. Dr Merryn Redenbach, of Doctors for the Environment, told the rally air pollution killed more people in Australia each year than car accidents. “Children are particularly vulnerable because their protective systems aren’t fully developed,” she said. “We have the responsibility to provide a safe environment for children. Unfortunately, in Australia our air pollution standards are failing us and we see an example of that here. As we know, children and trucks don’t mix.” Kingsville Primary School pupil Ella Edith said she loved her school, but the trucks were a big problem. “There are too many big trucks on Somerville Road and they make it very noisy and polluted,” she said. Fellow pupil Edith said trucks often came too close to the footpath when she walked to school. “I worry they might not stop at the crossing,” she said. “I’m worried that little kids aren’t safe to walk to school.”

Passions build: Protesters deliver their message at the blockade. (WAYNE HAWKINS)

Parent Marney Junge said many parents were troubled by the number of trucks travelling on Somerville Road during school crossing times. “The sheer number of trucks in the morning is unbelievable,” she said.

VicRoads is investigating the curfew call but argues it would push more truck traffic to Yarraville’s Francis Street. \ BENJAMIN MILLAR » Pictures: maribyrnongweekly.com.au

The inner-west faces a freight traffic nightmare within the next two decades, planning experts have warned. Dr Bill Russell told Melbourne’s Transport Crisis forum in Footscray last week that a failure to push freight on to rail would place unprecedented pressure on the local road network as truck numbers more than tripled in the next 20 to 30 years. “We will have severe problems with traffic congestion.

opened mail sparks warning

probus membership has its benefits west footscray

ALTONA

Women in Melbourne’s west are being encouraged to become involved with the West Footscray Ladies’ Probus Club. The club, which celebrated its 23rd anniversary on Monday, once had more than 90 members, but that has dwindled to fewer than 40. “It has been over a long time – slowly but surely we have been going down,” president Mary Logan said. She said the monthly meetings and regular outings offered women a chance to enjoy companionship while hearing from entertaining speakers on a range of subjects. “We go out to lunches, we go to the movies and we always have events like lunches, Christmas in July,” she said. The women, aged from their 60s to movies, 90s, meet from 10am-noon on the second talks on the Monday of each month at the Raleigh agenda Road Activity Centre, 54 Raleigh Road, Maribyrnong. \ BM

An Altona resident is alerting others to suspected mail theft after finding a pile of opened envelopes containing bank and tax statements. Kay, who asked that her last name not be used, said she found a stack of about 15 letters removed from their envelopes dumped next to a bus stop in Blyth Street. They were addressed to two homes in the street. “We delivered the mail to the correct addresses but would like to warn others in the area to be on the lookout for anyone behaving suspiciously,” Kay said. “We knocked on the people’s door; we didn’t just leave it in their post box, we actually went to the door and said, ‘Look, we found your letters up the road’. “Over the past year we have had numerous letters and cards go missing, but assumed they had got lost in the mail. But now we are not so sure.” Retired police officer Charlie Bezzina, who is an ambassador for a CCTV security firm, said people should keep their letterbox cleared if going away to avoid advertising an empty house to burglars. “Get someone you can trust to pick up the newspapers and clear your letterboxes out – all these tell-tale signs to say no one’s home.

st stephens wins a reprieve Williamstown

St Stephens Uniting Church at Williamstown North will not be sold, with the parish’s victory against church leaders sparking a statewide revolt against the synod’s decision to sell 56 properties. On Monday night, the parish held a meeting, steadying itself for battle and the message was clear: This church is not for sale. A packed nave unanimously passed a resolution to “wholeheartedly support” Supreme Court action against 20 members of the Uniting Church synod who were trying to sell the 130-year-old church and adjacent hall to recoup a $56 million debt incurred by the collapse of Acacia College at Mernda. John Beckman, whose martial arts class is among 23 community groups that use the hall, vowed it would be a David and Goliath battle with a difference. “There’s a bit of deja vu because I think they’re getting their 30 pieces of silver for this,” he told the meeting. “This is like a real David and Goliath. The only difference is, us being David, Goliath has no idea how big a stone we’re gonna hurl at him.” When told by the Weekly that church leaders yesterday had agreed not to sell the church and hall, he said: “I tell you what –

David doesn’t have to fling the rock at them, hey.” Church elder and Save St Stephens convener Iris Whitehurst said the synod had decided that St Stephens could retain most of the property, including two tennis courts, with the exception of the manse at 177 Melbourne Road. Reverend Doctor Ken Dempsey, who does not live in the manse so will not be affected by its sale, said their masters had tried to sell the property from under them to pay a debt “generated through negligence and incompetence”. Retired County Court judge Ross Howie, who had initiated legal action to stop the sale, said there were other ways the synod could recoup its debt over time without causing the “great anguish and sense of betrayal” to Victoria’s parishes. Synod general secretary Mark Lawrence said aside from St Stephens, “there were no other changes to the synod’s divestment list”. \ GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK Message heard: Sally, Ashleigh, Aaron and Madison had their demand met.

plan sows seeds for greener future environment

A greener west is on the cards following the release of a new strategic plan. Greening the West, launched with a tree-planting at Footscray’s Whitten Oval, brings together two years of work by nine councils, three water businesses and 20 community and stakeholder groups. It pinpoints eight goals to improve local health and liveability, with an emphasis on more trees and vegetation. Maribyrnong council chief executive Vince Haining said: “Creating more open spaces and planting trees across the west will deliver great benefits to the people of the western suburbs.” Pilot projects include a West Yarraville street tree replacement program and JBS abattoir planting project in Brooklyn. Further work is under way on a Braybrook Community Garden expansion and Footscray Primary School eco-masterplan. City West Water is supplying water to the projects. \ BM » healthyurbanhabitat.com.au

clinic offers free criminal law help

Braybrook

laverton

Access to free criminal law advice is being provided by a Western Suburbs Legal Service clinic at Laverton Community Hub. The clinic will open every second Thursday afternoon from November 21, to accompany a fortnightly Tuesday night general advice service. WSLS chairwoman Sandra Kerr says a need for a specialist service at Laverton has been identified. “The need for criminal law advice could be due to a combination of factors such as the decrease in legal aid funding, socio-economic pressures and population growth,” she said. The service is for people who live, work or study in the west, particularly in Hobsons Bay. Principal solicitor Annette Au Yeung said WSLS provided advice on matters ranging from family law to debts or Centrelink problems. “We will still run our legal advice night services in Newport and Laverton, but this specialist criminal advice service will allow us to assist more people and address an identified need,” she said. The hub is at the corner of Railway Avenue and Crown Street, near Laverton railway station. For appointments, phone 9391 2244 \ GD » wsls.org.au

Maribyrnong mayor Grant Miles says the decision by the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation to reject a bid for 19 extra poker machines in Braybrook is a win for the community. The Braybrook Hotel wanted to increase its number of pokies to 50 as part of a $6.2 million redevelopment. The application was knocked back by the commission on October 31 following hearings on September 16 and 17. The commission is expected to provide its reasons for the decision by November 28. Cr Miles said the rejection was “common sense”, and he would like fewer pokies in Melbourne’s west. “I’m not saying we should have none, but there’s an over-concentration of pokies in Maribyrnong,” he said. “As a council, we have limited powers, which is frustrating. “Maribyrnong has some of the worst poker machine use in the world, not just Australia.” Braybrook has 81 electronic gaming machines. A spokesman for the Braybrook Hotel’s owner, Armada Hospitality Group, said it was disappointed with the decision. “The real disappointment is for the people living in Braybrook and within the greater Maribyrnong and Brimbank communities, who will not at this stage get the opportunity to enjoy a state-of-the-art facility with so many offerings,” he said. \ BEN CAMERON

Melbourne and surrounding areas switch on 10 December 2013*

MARIBYRNONG & HOBSONS BAY

The analog TV switch off is happening on 10 December 2013* – and there’s no turning back. After this date you won’t see anything if you’re not ready for digital-only TV.

What do I have to do? Remember, to keep watching free-to-air TV shows, you’ll need either: • one set-top box or a digital TV recorder for each analog TV you use; or • a new TV with a built-in digital tuner. Most importantly, you do not have to buy a new TV if you do not want to. Most antennas and cabling should work after the digital switchover. However, if you have any concerns about your reception, you may consider asking an endorsed Antenna Installer to check your antenna and cabling. If you have any other questions, or to find your nearest endorsed Antenna Installer, visit our website or call the Digital Ready Information Line.

Don’t put it off any longer. Get ready for digital TV today. *Please note: switch off may occur earlier in some towns. Residents in these towns will be informed about the switchover dates. See the website for more information.

“S

ome people don’t want others to know they grew up in the western suburbs,” Shane Jacobson says. “Some say it under their breath or quietly so people don’t hear them. But I say it from the hilltops. It’s made me who I am.” Dressed casually and sitting by the Maribyrnong River in Avondale Heights, Jacobson is flooded with pleasant memories. He’s as warm and genuine as plumber Kenny, the role he is most known for. Born in Essendon in 1970, Jacobson spent his childhood in Avondale Heights. Although his parents divorced when he was four, Jacobson’s blue eyes light up as he says growing up in the ’70s in what was the “tough western suburbs” was full of “laughter, mischief, magic and adventure”. Endless days were spent swimming, canoeing, fishing and cheekily spying on a hermit living on a makeshift raft tied to the shore, surrounded by his old cats and enclosed in a fence made of wire and cans. “He is one of my most vivid childhood memories. To me he was a part of the river and one of the many characters of my childhood.” Jacobson says the Maribyrnong River is like “another member of our family” that continues to weave its way in and out of his life. “I spent a lot of my childhood canoeing along the river and always found it fascinating that the river was connected to ocean and if I kept going I could end up anywhere in the world,” he says. Jacobson’s father Ron, who was born into a family of carnival performers, grew up in a tent on the banks of the Maribyrnong in Newstead Street. For more than 50 years Ron, who now lives in Maidstone, has owned the Maribyrnong Boxing Gym. Jacobson’s mother Jill, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2002, still lives in the Avondale Heights family home. Since the ’60s she has run the renowned Avonde Calisthenics College. “My father is the funniest man I know,” Jacobson says. “He has shaped me completely. My mother’s strength inspires me every day. My parents have always backed me no matter what and steered me in the right direction. Parents shape you, they carve you out and make you who you are.” It was a family filled with laughter and love that sustained Jacobson and inspired him to perform. “My dad and my uncles were without a doubt the first comedians I met,” he says. “They were my real superheroes. I always felt when I “my saw Superman and Batman, yeah, you’re doing well children but you just got to hope you don’t do the wrong thing to my dad or uncles because they’d be stronger than are my you.” everything, Jacobson’s journey to national stardom is almost my world’’ as zig-zagging as his acting and singing career. Before he snagged the leading role in Kenny, which he made with his brother Clayton in 2006, he worked as a credit card fraud investigator, a medical supplies sales rep and a pyrotechnician for the likes of AC/DC and Guns N Roses. It was while working as a festival event manager that Jacobson encountered portaloo suppliers Splashdown Toilets. Coincidentally, Clayton, who directed and co-wrote the film Kenny with Jacobson, had cleaned toilets to pay his way through film school. Jacobson says his encounters with the men who cleaned other people’s waste sparked the mockumentary. The film attracted a cult following and became a surprise hit, grossing almost $8 million at the Australian box office. It was nominated for eight AFI awards, with Jacobson winning the In 2009, Jacobson was thrust into the spotlight again for his award for best lead actor. most challenging acting role – trapped miner Brant Webb in “The men doing this job are some of the most genuine, the TV mini-series Beaconsfield.

reveals he spent his life preparing for stardom. But his most rewarding role is fatherhood. His three children, a daughter and a son with partner Felicity Hunter and an eight-year-old son from a previous relationship, are “my everything, my world”. “Everything you do is in the hope you’ll provide them with a better life and in return you get love, and that’s a pretty good deal.” He met Hunter six years ago and they have been inseparable since. “Felicity is my rock, my witness to everything I do,” he says. “She is the first person I come to see, ring or tell; she is my best mate. My life is her life and her life is mine.” Never one to sit still for long, Jacobson has started filming for the series Fat Tony & Co, about the life of underworld figure Tony Mokbel, due out next year. Jacobson has been cast as Jim O’Brien, the former officer in charge of the Purana taskforce. “I want to continue to entertain,” he says. “I want to continue to be a parent. I want my family and children to be proud of me and my partner to enjoy me as much as I enjoy her.” \ mcunningham@mmpgroup.com.au NOVEMBER 13, 2013 \ MARIBYRNONG & HOBSONS BAY WEEKLY 13

Williamstown’s water police have issued a warning to boaters after two vessels ran aground on Sunday. Four people were aboard a boat that failed to anchor properly and drifted on to a reef off Point Gellibrand about 2pm. Another boat got stuck on rocks after cutting a corner while leaving The Warmies channel at Newport. Acting Sergeant Matt Henderson said that in the first incident, the people did not realise their boat’s anchor hadn’t caught on the bottom. “The weather came up and they drifted on to the shallows,” he said. “They tried to get themselves out of the shallows ... and started the motors, I believe, and damaged their propellers. Then they couldn’t get out of there.” He said a police rescue vessel unsuccessfully tried to tow the boat off the rocks. “ Our two water police guys who were swimming in the water actually waded out and escorted them back to shore. It was only about waist-depth by the end.” Acting Sergeant Henderson said two men aboard a vessel at Newport found themselves in a similar situation when their boat hit the

They bailed out water and waited until high tide to be towed in by police. “I think it’s really important that people actually receive some training, particularly in anchoring,” Acting Sergeant Henderson said. “And the other thing is, have a good understanding of navigation and the hazards in your area. The water police are certainly available to discuss that if people need advice.” \ GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK » Pictures: maribyrnongweekly.com.au

study gets a jump start

pair step up to charity challenge Altona Meadows’ Donna Margo and Yarraville’s Chris Price are both aiming for the top. Ms Margo, a 40-year-old formerly overweight smoker (pictured), just hopes she can manage to climb the 1642 stairs to the top of Melbourne’s tallest building, the Eureka Tower. Before losing 20 kilograms and quitting smoking, she couldn’t even climb two staircases to get to the cinema at Werribee Plaza. Mr Price, who finished ninth in last year’s annual Eureka Climb for charity, wants to be No.1 with an ultimate goal of qualifying for the Empire State Building Tower Run in New York. This year, he has finished second in stair-climbing races in Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth. This year’s Melbourne event has the closest top three ever seen, including a stair-climber from Norway. The crowd favourite – Victoria’s Emergency Service Challenge – is even more competitive this year with the Ambulance Services and Victoria Police teams trying to catch last year’s winner, the Metropolitan Fire Brigade. Last year, about 2500 entrants raised more than $308,000.

Yarraville Special Development School students have a bounce in their step thanks to a special new donation. The “iJump” talking trampoline was presented to the school last week by year 10 students from Presentation College, Windsor. The college students worked with Yarraville students with intellectual and physical disabilities (pictured) and Victoria University to develop the interactive trampoline, which rewards jumping children with sounds, words of encouragement and music they have recorded. VU School of Engineering lecturer John Chlond said the prototype was developed during a week of intensive engineering training and work experience through the Engineering Students @ Work program. “This program is an excellent way to introduce young students to the world of engineering by focusing on the creative and human aspects of engineering rather than the hard maths and sciences,” he said. Previous projects in the program include an award-winning interactive teddy bear that helps autistic children to communicate and a pedestrian crossing device being used in road safety programs. \ BM

FOOTSCRAY DEVELOPMENT: TOWERING BLAST FOR PLANNING MINISTER (Weekly, October 30) Planning Minister Matthew Guy has a fetish for “growth” and high towers. His personal preferences should not be enforced onto the public, against their will and leaving them to pay for the extra infrastructure. He’s paid as a public servant, not to undermine the community. Considering we are meant to live in a democracy, Mr Guy is riding

rough-shod over any community concerns and enforcing his own preferences against the judgement of the public. There’s no great rush to live in these towers. Southbank has many vacant apartments. This decision is about wantonly creating jobs for property developers rather than being based on rational planning and public need. Matthew Guy, Mr Skyscraper, is out of his depth and should resign. Politicians should be objective, not heavily involved in promoting an industry. VIVKAY \ VIA ONLINE When Sarah Carter was mayor, the council rejected an industrial rezoning in a residential street and was then completely silent when the minister secretly rezoned the site months later for the second-richest family in Australia, without telling the council, the residents or even the other affected land owner.

sun rises on film festival

(to the same or higher value)

yarraville

The best filmmaking in Melbourne’s west will light up the silver screen when the Setting Sun Short Film Festival heads to Yarraville. The inaugural event, planned for March next year, is aimed at supporting filmmakers lacking a suitable local outlet for their creativity. Festival creator Anna Bourozikas (pictured with actor Stephen Brooks) says entries are now open in a range of categories to recognise filmmakers from the western suburbs and beyond. “The idea came from a conversation I had with my husband; we were talking about the lack of a film festival out here,” she says. The aspiring West Footscray filmmaker says there has been widespread support for the festival, to be held at the Sun Theatre from March 27-30. “I’ve been working on it since the start of the year and it’s all coming together even faster than I expected. There has been a lot of enthusiasm already, people saying this was something that has been needed.” The bulk of awards will go to filmmakers living or shooting in the west, but Bourozikas is encouraging entries from far

artist has west in stitches yarraville

A Yarraville artist is bringing familiar inner-west landmarks to the wall, using tapestry with a twist. Jessie Deane has threaded more than a million stitches to create Needlepoint West, more than 30 tapestries of familiar landmarks in Melbourne’s west including the West Gate Bridge, Yarraville Terminal and Altona Refinery, alongside stacks of colourful containers. The three-year project has involved numerous brushes with authority, including being escorted

away from the fence-line by security at the Altona Refinery. Deane’s industry-inspired tapestry overturns traditional ideas of the form as quaint, domestic or “pretty”. “It is thrilling to mess with these opposing elements that might conventionally be perceived in the realm of the ‘feminine’ and ‘masculine’ respectively, and creating something entirely original,” she said. Needlepoint West is showing at the Roslyn Smorgon Gallery, Footscray Community Arts Centre, until December 1. \ BM

T

here is conjecture in some circles that when Holden eventually stops building big rear-drive, six-cylinder Commodores and finally moves into the smaller, more efficient front-drive cars that people are actually buying, the Malibu will provide the template. I hope not. I got out of an Australian-made Commodore and straight into a Malibu, which is made in Korea, and the drop-off in fit and finish was obvious and painful. When I hit the road, things got worse. As far as build quality, perceived structural integrity and driving comfort are concerned, this car seems like a step back in time. The diesel motor is noisy, the manual mode of the automatic gearbox is clumsy, and the car lacks that reassuring feeling of strength and solidity that you get with the Commodore and many other cars these days. Hyundais and Kias have it, but the third Korean manufacturer, Daewoo – the one that built this car – still lags. I kept finding things I didn’t like. The parcel shelf kicks up high as it meets the back window, reducing rear vision. The spare is full sized yet it’s a temporary tyre speed-limited to 80km/h, a really sad exercise in penny-pinching. The road noise over coarse bitumen is high. The steering is vague with little real feel. The switchgear looks cheap, and so do the plastic interior surfaces. I did like the idea of the little secret

holden malibu cdx What is it? Holden’s biggest four-cylinder car.

“i kept finding things i didn’t like”

What’s in it? A 117-kilowatt two-litre turbo diesel with a six-speed auto. Is it thirsty? I used 10.5 litres per 100 kilometres in the city, 8 in the country. The official combined figure is 6.5.

storage space behind the centre LCD screen, but there’s a very obvious latch on it so it’s not much of a secret. Apart from its price, which is razor sharp given the equipment level, this car is almost unique in having no other strong points I could pin down. In everything else I could think of, the Malibu is indifferent to poor. Twisty roads reveal some body roll and vague, unsteady handling. This isn’t paid back by good ride quality; the ride is rather unsettled. I disliked the seating intensely – it took me a long time to find a position I could live with and even then I kept making adjustments, trying to make things just a little better. I never did get it right. The diesel motor has lots of torque, but it’s rather harsh and not brilliantly economical. The boot has plenty of depth but not a lot of height. My most disappointing car this year. \ reasdown@theweeklyreview.com.au

magpies pay the penalty VTCA

Laverton undertook a painstaking operation to return to relevance in its battle with West Coburg in the Victorian Turf Cricket Association north division at Morris Reserve on Saturday, falling short by a wicket in a bold comeback attempt. The Magpies displayed tremendous fight on the second day but would ultimately pay the price for a shocking first innings batting effort, losing outright. “It was a close game. It turned out to be a great game,” Magpies wicketkeeper Mark Logan said. “We backed ourselves to set them a [second innings] target, but we were probably 20 or 30 runs shy ... we almost got there.” Ashley Hulme has the right to feel dudded by his team-mates, making 31 of his side’s embarrassing first-innings total of 67. The Magpies were down, but certainly not

out. The bowlers picked up the slack, sending Wests to stumps at 9-99, at which time the declaration came. Trailing by 32 on first innings, the Magpies set out to build a lead in excess of 100, but didn’t hit the mark. After another batting letdown, the bowlers helped create a thrilling finish. Shaun Delaney (4-8), Jimmy Baker (3-20) and Mark Keenan (2-10) were superb with the ball. A turning point in the innings, and perhaps the straw that broke the Magpies’ back, was a rare five-run penalty after the ball trickled into a helmet, reserved for bat-pad, that lay behind the wicketkeeper. “We had 20 runs in the bag at that stage and to give them an extra five it was like, oh no!,” Logan said. “Over 30-odd years I’ve never seen that happen in a game I’ve played in.” The Magpies, in their second season in the VTCA’s second tier, have a 1-2 record after three matches. \ LJ

BRonca delivers coup de grace after centuries Yarraville Club is finally in the winners’ circle after a 202-run annihilation of Hoppers Crossing in the Victorian Turf Cricket Association’s senior division. The Clubbers held all the aces after posting 6-383 on the opening day at Hansen Reserve. All the Cats could garner in return was 181 after some sharp bowling from Emmett Bronca (4-45) put a dent in their chances. The game will be remembered for twin centuries on day one from Clubbers batsmen Andrew Cullen (160) and Aaron Mato (102). The Clubbers will travel to Greenvale for a two-day meeting of the past two top-flight champions. In north division, Spotswood (3-175dec) cruised to an outright victory over Footscray United (74 and 83). United’s brittle top order is a concern, falling to 6-16 in the first innings and 6-19 in the second before late revivals from the tail-end.

Take nothing away from the Woodsmen bowlers, who stuck to the task They were superbly led by skipper Andrew Dickinson and Andrew Butler, both taking six wickets in the match. Altona North (2-129dec and 6-125) hardly put a foot wrong in a big outright win over Royal Park-Brunswick (128 and 125). Williamstown CYMS (152) are struggling in third-last after a loss to Tullamarine (210 and 3-25). In north A1, Altona Roosters (120 and 5-81) had a tough day at the office in a loss to Haig Fawkner (9-170dec). St Andrews (196) is winless and finding the going tough in its promotion season after a heavy defeat to Taylors Lakes (5-388). Seddon (245 and 2-70) had a brilliant road victory over Aberfeldie (154) to leap into the top four. In west B1, Barkly Street Uniting (176) played out an entertaining tie with Deer Park Ardeer (176). \

Bowls

Baseball

Yarraville-Footscray is still awaiting that elusive first win in its promotion season in the Bowls Victoria metro premier division. The Combine suffered a sixth consecutive loss in heartbreaking fashion to finals contender Essendon at Francis Street on Saturday. They were edged 87-80 overall but scooped up two rinks that might have been more if not for an across-the-board final-end fade out. “We were with them all day,” Combine skip Wayne Roberts said. “We just couldn’t win any of the last four ends.” The Combine have been competitive in most of their games, despite being relatively inactive in the off-season transfer market. Three of their six losses have been by single-figure margins. “Essendon are a very good side and will probably make the finals,” Roberts said. “To be competitive against them was good; you can take something positive out of it.” Alan Dove’s rink was down and out at the midway point but stormed home to beat Aaron Tompkins 25-19 as the highlight of the day for the Combine. Jamie Pierce had a 20-15 win over Anthony Flapper, leading most of the way. Losses to Roberts (19-24) and Aaron Putts (16-29) deflated the Combine’s overall performance. With powerhouse Melbourne coming up this Saturday, the Combine’s job doesn’t get any easier. “It’s a matter of getting the first one and then two or three might come our way,” Roberts said. Altona’s inconsistent form sees it smack bang in the middle of the ladder with a 50 per cent record.

Newport Rams fumbled a three-run lead in a disappointing 5-4 loss to the Sandringham Royals in the Baseball Victoria summer league division 1. A sloppy play in the last inning cost the Rams on Sunday, with the batter who reached base on a Travis Bass error being driven in off the pitching of Jeremy Young. Rams assistant coach Gavin Young was left frustrated after watching his side give up a healthy lead for the second time this season. “It’s another one that got away,” he said. “We’ve got to learn how to win these close ones, do that little bit more earlier in the game so we’re not left in these situations.” Leading 4-1 after five innings, the Rams were in a position of power. Lead-off batter Jordan Young was seeing the ball well with two hits and a walk and Bass had two hits to go with a strong 5.2 innings on the mound. “In division 1 ... sides are going to keep coming and are not going to give up,” Gavin Young said. “We just haven’t learnt to be that mentally tough yet. We just became complacent, had opportunities and didn’t capitalise and at the end when the pressure was on we faltered.” Matt Lawman, pitching in relief for the Rams, picked up the loss after conceding three runs in the sixth. But to nitpick one aspect of the Rams’ game and blame it for the loss would be unfair. “It was a bit of everything,” Young said. “We had opportunities late in the game in the batting box with runners on [but] we couldn’t do the job there. “We got into trouble with our pitching, walked a couple late in the game to let them tie. Then in the last inning, we made an error to put a guy on, and they scored him. You can’t do that late in games.” The Rams play Melbourne at KC White Reserve on Sunday. \ LJ

premier Cricket

Footscray Edgewater has moved into the Premier Cricket top two after holding off a surging Prahran to seal its fift h win in six matches. The Bulldogs posted an imposing 308 on day one after a 170-run opening stand between Anthony Barton (91) and Dean Russ (70), but their bowlers had a tough time defending the total. Prahran had a couple 100-run partnerships, both featuring the impenetrable Adam Bull, who went on to make a stellar 163. Bull’s best efforts were not enough for Prahran, which was bowled out for 294, 15 runs short of an improbable victory. Bulldogs paceman Jake Haberfield ripped through the Prahran line-up with 7-82 off 27.1 overs. But it was third change bowler, Travis Dean (2-23), who claimed the scalp of Bull in what was the turning point of the match. The second-placed Bulldogs will defend their loft y position when one-win Frankston Peninsula visits Merv Hughes Oval on the coming two Saturdays. \ LJ Seventh heaven: Jake Haberfield on his way to snaring a seven-wicket haul for Footscray Edgewater.

coach’s SANFL protege joins gulls vfl

Williamstown has significantly bolstered its leadership with the signing of former West Adelaide captain Ryan Ferguson as playing assistant coach. Ferguson is no stranger to new Seagulls coach Andy Collins, having played under him at the Bloods during a glittering SANFL career. “Ryan is not blessed with huge muscles or blistering pace, but I have coached him for the last six years and it’s easy to say that he’s the best player I have been involved with,” Collins said. Ferguson spent five years on Melbourne’s list in the AFL, accumulating 47 games.

The 32-year-old crossed to the Bloods after he was delisted at the end of 2007. The backman claimed the club champion player award in his first season and went on to repeat the feat on four occasions. There seems to be no slowing down the veteran, with 2013 a particularly memorable season. Ferguson claimed the Fos Williams Medal for best on ground in the SANFL’s interstate battle with NEAFL, which sat nicely alongside SANFL team of the year honours and a club champion award. His wife, Bree Munro, a former Olympic aerial freestyle skier, will offer advice to the players on athlete development and leadership. \ LJ
