caning for council over its non-pop-up park YARRAVILLE

Irate supporters of the dumped Yarraville Pop-up Park are staging a last-ditch campaign for its return this summer. Hundreds of residents and traders attended a passionate protest in front of the Sun Theatre on Friday, demanding Maribyrnong council return the park for a third year. The protest follows a decision at last week’s council meeting to reject a call by Yarraville ward councillor Michael Clarke to spend $115,000 on once more setting up the popular park in Ballarat Street. Fiery speeches at the protest were followed by a mass rendition of All I Want for Christmas is a Pop-up Park. Sun Theatre owner Michael Smith said there was wide support for the return of the park to Yarraville, despite pockets of dissent. “With thousands of us saying yes, we want the council to say the same, because they represent us,” he said. Cr Martin Zakharov said the park was built on community effort.

Hear our call: Residents deliver their message to the council. (BENJAMIN MILLAR)

“It’s now been copied in quite a few places around Australia. Cr Clarke and I are still puzzling over why the decision was made,” he said. “To put the park back in this summer will cost 0.1 per cent of council’s budget.

There is no reason why we can’t afford to do it again this year.” Yarraville resident Michael Habir said the park was one of the council’s most popular community initiatives.

“It’s really well utilised,” he said. “I just don’t understand why they would want to can this when it’s been so popular.” The council has undertaken extensive consultation with Yarraville traders over the pop-up park, with a majority in support. People opposed to the park argue it draws customers away and unfairly benefits traders located nearby. Mayor Grant Miles said he wanted to see the park return as a permanent fixture in Yarraville but didn’t support a temporary return this summer. He instead backs the council’s three-year program to roll out pop-up parks across Maribyrnong, starting with a ‘parklet’ for Barkly Street in West Footscray from next month until March. An online Change.org petition supporting the park’s return to Yarraville has attracted almost 1500 signatures. \ BENJAMIN MILLAR » Picture gallery: maribyrnongweekly.com.au

He said the exercise identified several “holes” in council plans, which was the objective of the test. “A really good example is fuel, where people think, oh, I’ll get some diesel fuel,” Senior Sergeant Mayne said. “Well, if you’ve lost power then petrol stations are not going to be able to provide you with power because they won’t have generators. “Companies that have generators ... a lot of those generators for significant power outages are booked and pre-booked to existing contracts.

Would Maribyrnong, Hobsons Bay and Wyndham be able to cope if power went out for 72 hours? That was the emergency scenario put to the test last Friday in a joint council and police exercise dubbed Operation Devine.

MFB’s Commander Frank Besanko said some hospital patients and nursing home residents might need to be relocated in the event of a major power outage. He said in such an event, state back-up assistance and the army could be called in. “The Department of Human Services has semi-trailers with tents and showers and toilets to temporarily house people on local footy grounds,” he said.

free parking proves costly without a ticket altona

Ticket parking has been introduced for the first time in Altona in a so-called “honey trap” car park, catching unsuspecting shoppers at the newly opened IGA supermarket in Pier Street. While the first hour of car parking is free, Australian National Car Parks (ANCP) fines people $66 if they have not displayed a ticket for the free parking, available from the machine. If not paid within 14 days, the fine increases to $88, followed by subsequent debt-collection fees. However, the company has been subjected to legal class action in several states by people who successfully refused to pay their fines. Julian Burnside, QC, said fines incurred in the first free hour were unenforceable. Last week, the company offered a period

check for kids, drivers urged altona

After nearly being struck last week, an Altona mother is warning people walking their children to school to watch out for cars coming out of driveways. Fleur Stoios said that during November children were encouraged to walk to school, but little attention was given to educating children and drivers about taking extra care on driveways. “I walk my three children to school every day and I’m nervous about the dangers of cars colliding with pedestrians as they leave their driveways,” she said. “I don’t want to blame the driver; personally, I have a blind driveway and know it’s very difficult leaving the driveway when you can’t see pedestrians on the footpath. It’s even more dangerous when kids fly up and down on scooters, skateboards and bikes. “We encourage kids to cycle on the footpath instead of the road, but that often presents its own dangers.” According to VicRoads data, 354 pedestrian injuries were reported statewide from 2007-12, nine of them fatal.

farewell history, welcome future jobs hub: minister PLANNING

State Planning Minister Matthew Guy has hit back at criticism over his handling of planning in the inner-west. Earlier this month, Maribyrnong councillors took Mr Guy to task over a 24-storey, $280 million multi-tower development on the former Le Mans Toyota site in Footscray.

suburban club galloping ahead williamstown

MMP13479-01-a16Oct©FCNVIC

One of Victoria’s last suburban pony clubs, which has a unique reason for remaining barely 10 kilometres from Melbourne’s CBD, celebrates its 50th birthday this Sunday. Williamstown Horse and Pony Club president David Vinycomb said the club had survived because it was lodged in a buffer zone between an oil refinery and one of Melbourne’s wealthiest residential areas. “We think it’s the last suburban pony club left in Victoria because most of the inner-suburban clubs have all gone by-the-by now, including Altona, Yarraville and Footscray,” he said. “We’ve managed to hang on due to the fact that we’ve got quite a large agistment paddock which is next to the pony club, in Maddox Road. “That land belongs to Mobil so they lease the land to us at peppercorn rates and we look after it and have turned it into a horse agistment. That’s one of the main reasons why we’re still viable, really.” Conceived by Dorothy MacAdie, the club was established by Vi Colquhoun and Pat McDonald in 1963. It remains predominantly

female with 26 members ranging in age from five to 22. Mr Vinycomb said the club might be small, but its members were very proactive. A few years ago, it needed money for a sand arena so it contacted singer Paul Kelly. “One of our members is his builder,” Mr Vinycomb laughed. “So, he said to Paul, ‘Could you do us a favour?’ So we lined up that and a few of the Triple J bands and had a massive concert down at the Pines and that was a huge fund-raiser for our sand arena. “We got some [Hobsons Bay] council grounds at Quarry Reserve, which is next to the cemetery. But we’ve now got permission to actually have a sand arena built where we do show jumping and dressage and things like that.” Past and present members and supporters are being invited to the arena’s opening and anniversary from noon on Sunday. It will be held at the club’s rally ground in Quarry Reserve, Park Crescent, Williamstown. \ GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK » Kate Sagar, 0412 563 597

HEALTH SHAKE-UP

The biggest community health shake-up in the west in decades is under way as Western Region Health Centre merges with Doutta Galla Community Health and North Yarra Community Health. The WRHC board has voted in favour of creating a single organisation that will service about one-third of Melbourne. Western Region Health chief executive Lyn Morgain said the three organisations had worked hard over the past year to ensure the new organisation would deliver benefits for local communities as well as staff.

staff losses are expected in the merger, which comes as WRHC was named Victoria’s top primary health service at the 2013 Victorian Public Healthcare Awards. Health Minister David Davis said the centre had been recognised for its work in refugee health, gay and lesbian health, and preventing family violence. “In addition, the centre delivers innovative statewide programs such as the Refugee Health Nurse Co-ordination and Multiple and Complex Needs Initiative, as well as providing leadership through the Health Champions project.” \ BENJAMIN MILLAR

a special day to learn together yarraville

A group of Footscray students has raised disability awareness among fellow students in a special day of activities at Yarraville Special Developmental School. The year 9 Footscray City Secondary College students organised a series of activities at the Yarraville school last Wednesday as part of their community learning project. The day comes ahead of International Day of People with Disability on December 3. Student Nadire Thomas Capar said the project included arts and crafts as well as outdoor games and sports. “The day allowed those students taking part to gain a better understanding of the challenges facing people with disabilities and to raise awareness among their peers at Footscray City Secondary College,” she said. “The two schools have worked together on community action projects in the past and this day will further strengthen the link between the two school communities.” The project is the final part of a leadership program for the students. \ BM

he uber-successful St Jerome’s Laneway Festival traces back to the infamously seedy, now defunct, Essendon Grand Hotel. It was the early ’90s when founders Danny Rogers and Jerome Borazio met while working at the venue. Rogers was 17 and Borazio, whose cousin managed the bar, was a few years older. “He invited me back for a few beers at his parents’ house,” Rogers says. “We drank about eight bottles of their champagne. They came back the next morning and saw these two kids in their kitchen quite intoxicated. That was the beginning. I guess that night I never would have thought that 22 years later we’d be best of mates and running a festival that’s spread around to push the boundaries a bit ...

Rogers has his pet story about the eclectic Ariel Pink that makes him cackle. “Ariel was special,” he says. “We’ve had some real characters. Every year these personalities really start to come out. You spend a couple of weeks with all these characters. I remember Ariel Pink was really scared around me at the festival. He didn’t want to talk to me. On the last day I was in his band room talking to one of his guys and he walked in and walked out and I said, ‘Mate, what’s your problem? Have I done something wrong to you? He’s like, ‘Nah nah you’ve done nothing wrong’. I said, ‘Well, cool, we haven’t really met properly cos every time I go to talk to you, you don’t want to. I’m Danny, I’m the organiser’. And he thought that I was an undercover cop. For two weeks he thought I was following him around.” Rogers says he’d be a happy man if Laneway could continue on its merry way. “It’s so hard to look too deep into the future,” he says cautiously before Borazio butts in with: “I wouldn’t mind doing one in the Bahamas.” \ rfedele@mmpgroup.com.au » The St Jerome’s Laneway Festival is on Saturday, February 1, at Footscray Community Arts Centre, 45 Moreland Street, Footscray.

They also provide back-up and service for products they sell and, where possible, for products purchased elsewhere. The business sells, rents and repairs motorised scooters; three- and four-wheel rollators; carer- and self-propelled wheelchairs; lift/recline and fixed-posture chairs; canes and crutches; and bathroom products. “We have a great space where people can safely trial our mobility scooters - we understand the importance of selecting a product that exactly meets individual needs,” Guppy says. The team has helped many locals remain active in the community, including a lady who wanted to buy a new scooter because she had a punctured tyre on her much-loved existing one. “She felt the job wasn’t big enough to warrant assistance but we were happy to fix the puncture and now she is mobile again.” Your Mobility, at 18/2 Burleigh Street, Spotswood, opens 10am-4pm Mondays-Thursdays and by appointment.

Managing director Craig Stephens said about 300 people went through the former prime minister’s Altona home at 9 Medford Street.

ethiopia irresistible to filmmaker

vernon street plan under discussion

A Seddon filmmaker’s love affair with Ethiopia will continue next year when he returns to make the first Australian short film shot in the African nation. David Willing (pictured) “fell” for Ethiopia while travelling two years ago. With his home camera, he filmed Walking With The Mursi, a documentary about his solo hike across the remote tribal region of the Omo Valley. “There is such diversity. I realised how little I knew and other people know,” he says. “I’m heading back over next year, looking at shooting a film early in January.” Already titled Lost & Found In Addis, the 15-minute film will trace the journey of an Ethiopian female police officer as she uncovers a crime. Based on a true story, the film will be created with Ethiopian cast and crew. “When I heard about this story and this woman I was really moved,” Willing says. “One rule I had set myself was to create a fi lm that was not about poverty, famine or war.” Willing has been developing the script with members of the local Ethiopian community. He hopes the film will open the world’s eyes to a nation that has a long history but is more

Elly ‘Big Al’ Haddad said customers had abandoned his shop because it was no longer easy to access. Restaurateur Jimmy Marwaha said his diners complained that they had to park in nearby Kernot Street. The council has developed a draft concept plan for the street and will hold an information forum from 6-7.30pm on December 5 at South Kingsville Community Centre.

zombies at their fingertips FOOTSCRAY

There will be zombies and intergalactic adventures aplenty when the children’s writing centre ‘100 Story Building’ launches its second edition of Early Harvest in Footscray this Saturday. The literary magazine has been edited and published by pupils at local primary schools working with award-winning authors such as Sally Rippin to create an issue full of choose-your-own adventures and quizzes. Publishing industry professionals including Sam Cooney of The Lifted Brow and Kat Muscat of Voiceworks mentored the young editors, including Ahmed (pictured), in after-school workshops that covered various aspects of the publishing process. Early Harvest is a collaborative project developed by 100 Story Building, author and editor Davina Bell and creative program co-ordinator Emma Hewitt. It aims to support literacy and self-confidence in young people such as 12-year-old Huz, who says he likes being part of Early Harvest ‘‘because you never waste your time or get bored”. “That’s why I like coming here. Firstly some fun stuff and, secondly, it’s awesome.” Early Harvest 2 will be launched from

Local Councillor Catherine Cumming joins Thomson incorporating Frank Trimboli Real Estate Former Mayor and local councillor Catherine Cumming has taken a sales role at Thomson Inc. Frank Trimboli Real Estate, one of the oldest real estate agencies in the area. A lifetime resident, Cr Cumming has been a rate payer for over 20 years, having purchased her first shop when she was 20 years old. “What I love about Thomson’s is the family values of the company. As a mother of 5, I understand the importance of family and being a good role model. With 17 years on council, I needed an agency that I could trust with my reputation. With Thomson’s, I immediately felt I would be part of their Footscray family. Frank’s long history in Footscray clearly demonstrates he is doing something right”. Cr Cumming was attracted to working in real estate because it gives her the chance to help people. “I understand that buying and selling homes are significant events in people’s lives. I’ve personally been through all the reasons why people buy and sell and that’s experience you just can’t buy”. With over 55 years in the real estate industry, Frank Trimboli is thrilled to welcome Cr Cumming on board, saying “we have known her whole family, in both business and property related matters for years. The fact Cr Cumming chose us is tremendous and I, along with my fellow partners, John Verduci and Frank Forti, will do everything in our power to make sure that she succeeds.”

This well-maintained Victorian still has plenty of years left in it for the next owners to etch their story. Established gardens out front add to the weatherboard’s character, while inside elegant features of a bygone era – including ornate fireplaces, ceiling roses and cornices, leadlight windows, picture rails, corbels and baltic pine floorboards – provide enhancement. A wide hallway leads to three bedrooms, an open-plan living-dining room and kitchen with timber-lined walls and ceiling. At the back is a bathroom with shower over bath, a separate toilet and laundry. The backyard, with paving and lawn, is surprisingly spacious. The property is within walking distance of shops, restaurants, Mappin Reserve, Yarraville Gardens, schools, childcare and Seddon railway station. \

The fact this house is on the market for the first time since its construction in 1952 is testament to its appeal. It still presents terrifically for a new owner. Within walking distance of Wembley Primary School, the property is introduced by manicured gardens and has a triple-fronted brick facade. The once-three-bedroom floor plan has been reconfigured to provide a separate lounge room with fireplace and decorative cornices, and carpeted living and dining domains. Two bedrooms close to the entrance have wide cornices and picture rails. The original kitchen has a freestanding cooker and cream cabinets. A sunroom at the back has a retro bar, and outside you’ll enjoy a garden, immaculate patios, a greenhouse and space to extend (subject to council approval). \

T

here’s one thing you can say about the little Mercedes-Benz A 45 AMG, and that is it’s a lot of fun to drive. Also, it goes, as they say in the suburbs in less delicate terms, like sand off a shovel. And it handles like it looks, offering an exciting, sporty driving experience. The A 45’s four-cylinder 2.0-litre engine packs quite a punch, boosted by a twin-scroll turbocharger that, Mercedes says, provides a more spontaneous build-up of charge pressure. It develops 265 kilowatts, with a torque peak of 450 Newton metres at 6000 revs, giving rise to claims it’s the most powerful four-cylinder in series production. It’s also fast, topping out at 270km/h (electronically limited – and probably just as well). It can cover the zero to 100km/h sprint in 4.6 seconds, although some lead-footers reportedly have recorded 4.1 seconds. With that sort of grunt under the bonnet, it’s too tempting not use it. And when you do, this little red bullet lets out an exciting, throaty howl from its twin AMG performance exhaust system. You tend to put your foot down just to hear it. While Mercedes’ official fuel figures are recorded as a frugal 6.9 litres per 100 kilometres, if you want to have some fun in this exotic little car, you can expect to see the fuel nudging 14L/100km. But that’s the price you pay to play. To get 6.9L/100km, you’d have to put a little old man in slippers at the wheel. The A 45 is a sporty four-door. It was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show last year, labelled as the smallest Mercedes tuned by the company’s performance arm. It is also the first AMG car with a four-cylinder engine and, like all the AMGs, the engine is assembled by hand. It’s mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic sports transmission. Paddles behind the steering wheel let you drive the car as a manual, if that’s your thing. Flick the left paddle to kick the seven-speeder down a notch and the back end will emit that wonderful growl. Plant the foot from standstill in auto, though, and while the car will take off like a wildcat in pursuit of its prey, it tends to jerk a tad, leaving you with the impression that it just has too many gears to choose from. But get it moving and it launches

like the proverbial rocket. The paddles, however, do provide extremely quick shifts. There’s also plenty of safety gear, such as seven airbags, and vented, cross-drilled and grooved disc brakes front and rear. You only have to look at the big red brake calipers inside those 19-inch AMG multispoke alloys to know the car can stop on a pinhead. It also has an AMG aerodynamics package, four-wheel ABS and traction and stability control and AMG sports suspension, including what’s called Curve Dynamic Assist, which gives the car its precise cornering ability. The cockpit comes with red-stitched and red-piped black leather, red-ringed chrome air vents and body-hugging AMG Performance seats. Even the AMG badges in the chrome strips under the doors light up at night. The A 45 AMG has most of the features of its bigger brothers, such as satnav and a reversing camera, panoramic electric sunroof and heated electric front seats with three-stage memory and xenon headlights. In normal driving it uses front-wheel-drive for optimum efficiency, but put the foot down and the variable AMG 4Matic all-wheel-drive system kicks in and splits torque 50-50 between front and rear axles. It was inevitable that Mercedes would eventually join the hot-hatch brigade. I can remember all the excitement after the launch 20 years ago of the Subaru Impreza WRX, the original “pocket rocket”. From memory they were quickly sold out. I also remember someone in Melbourne flying to Perth and paying about $60,000 just to get his hands on one. The price at the time was $40,000-$45,000. These two cars come from different playing fields but, just for comparison, while at $75,000 the A 45 AMG sounds expensive, when compared with $60,000 paid for a WRX 20 years ago, you’d have to say the A 45 AMG is cheap. And you get a lot more bang for your bucks. \ kevinnorbury@theweeklyreview.com.au

cyms saved by washout Cricket

Spotswood was cruelly denied the points against Williamstown CYMS in the Victorian Turf Cricket Association north division. Rain halted play in the local derby as the Woodsmen were closing in on a resounding victory. CYs were bowled out for 78, with Charith Fernando’s 54 avoiding what would have been an embarrassingly low total. Fernando’s knock would be a significant one, as it forced the Woodsmen into having to build an innings in a bid for a result. The Woodsmen made a bright start to be 1-63 after 20.5 overs with David Buysen leading the way with 38 not out. But then the rain washed away hopes of any result other than a draw. In response to the weather coming to their rescue, CYs official Twitter account @ WCYMSCC cheekily tweeted: ‘Washed out! Stiff but that’s cricket’. In the other local stoush, Laverton rolled Altona North. Laverton posted 133 with opener Matthew O’Brien top-scoring with 38. North, dismissed for 112, had no answer to Kane Hallinan, who took 4-32 to go with his 30 runs. Footscray United had a successful 80th reunion but couldn’t cap it with a first XI victory. The Bulldogs (71) were outclassed by Doutta Stars (7-144) in a one-sided game at Scovell Reserve.

Washed away: Spotswood’s Tom Johnstone runs back to the clubrooms after rain halts play. (WAYNE HAWKINS)

Bowls Yarraville-Footscray remains without a top-flight win after a 21-shot loss to Brighton in the Bowls Victoria metro premier division on Saturday. In an encouraging sign, the Bulldogs managed to pick up two rinks against the top side, even though they could not halt their eight-game losing streak. The Dogs face the other winless side Burwood District away on Saturday. \ Cricket Williamstown had an almighty struggle against ladder-leader Bayswater in the Victorian Sub-District Cricket Association first XI. The Seagulls were bowled out for a sub-par 96 in their chase for the 229 run target. Yarraville, who posted 141, failed to defend the small total, as Oakleigh did as it pleased en route to 6-213. \

In senior division, Yarraville Club is languishing on the bottom half of the ladder after it was pummelled by reigning premiers Greenvale in a rain-affected match at Greenvale Recreation Reserve on Saturday. The Clubbers could manage only 9-55 with their innings reduced to 26 overs because of intermittent rain. The Vales had no trouble picking off the runs, finishing with 3-121.

Having won the criterium aggregate earlier in the year, it’s clear that the 30-year-old is the club’s most “complete” rider, topping both disciplines, a fact he attributes to his competitive nature. “I’m naturally a competitive person so the competitive aspect of cycling is definitely a big part of the appeal. It’s a great feeling when the training pays off in the form of a race win.” \

wolves take a step in hunt for form Baseball

Williamstown Wolves have a long way to go to recapture last season’s title-winning form in the Baseball Victoria summer league division 2. The Wolves were 13-3 winners over the Bonbeach Bluejays at Bicentennial Park on Sunday, but coach Dean Marnell isn’t getting carried away with what he described as an “ugly” win. “We didn’t play that well, but we got the chocolates, so I’m happy with that,” he said. “We haven’t been playing too well, so hopefully our best baseball is just around the corner.”

The Wolves endured a rough week on the Marnell said. “He could’ve easily got out of diamond.

bulldogs lead the pack Cricket

Footscray Edgewater will head into the pre-Christmas period as the top dogs of Victorian Premier Cricket. The Bulldogs stand alone in first place after a hard-fought, two-wicket win against Frankston Peninsula at Merv Hughes Oval on Saturday. Their No.1 status was confirmed when news filtered through that Carlton had lost to cellar dweller Hawthorn-Monash University. Life under new coach Steve Chapman could hardly be better for the Bulldogs: six wins from seven starts. “The club is bouncing. It’s really buzzing. It’s good for the members and life members,” Chapman told the Weekly. The Bulldogs have been the most consistent side during the first two months. “I really want the lads to be methodical in what they’re doing so they understand how to get from A to B,” Chapman said. “Take simple options and be really calculated. Playing the game with a simple model is suiting them.” The Bulldogs might have been chasing a tiny 167 for victory against Frankston Peninsula, but it would test their mettle. Stop-start play because of rain made it hard for them to settle into a groove, and having to confront a menacing pace attack, led by statelevel bowlers Jayde Herrick and Scott Boland and Australian under-age international Ben Ashkenazi, was a massive test. The Bulldogs reached the target eight down. Captain Dean Russ did most of his work late on day one to set up the innings with 48, but Dylan Kight was the match-winner with 60 and he batted through five partnerships. The Bulldogs next face Greenvale Kangaroos at Greenvale Reserve in a two-day weekend game. Veteran import Shanuka Dissanayake could get a game after having his visa cleared to arrive in Australia. \ LANCE JENKINSON 58 MARIBYRNONG & HOBSONS BAY WEEKLY \ NOVEMBER 27, 2013

altona beats up on fellow struggler Bowls

Altona has put a month of travails behind it with a bullyboy win over last-placed Burwood District in Bowls Victoria metro premier division at Civic Parade on Saturday. By no means does the 93-53 victory mask November’s three other losing efforts, but it does provide the A’s with a much-needed recalibration of their mindset. “They’ve been struggling, Burwood, and we’ve been struggling a bit ourselves,” A’s skip Brett Dodd said. “It was a game we had to win and, thankfully, we did. “We’d lost the last three on the trot so confidence was pretty low ... to have a big win like that can boost the confidence.” The A’s have not performed anywhere near the expectations of a premiership contender. They have a 4-4 split in the win-loss column, sit in sixth on the ladder and are well off the pace set by the leading sides. “They’ve been training really well,” Dodd said. “They haven’t been doing anything wrong in the preparation – it’s just that mental thing of playing out the entire game. “We’re playing good at the start of games and for patches, but we’re having flat spots halfway or three-quarters of the way through the game. “You can’t afford to have a flat spot at all; you’ve got to be on your game the whole 84 ends.” Brad Peck had a welcome return to form with a 21-shot win. Peck had lost his previous three and was desperate to snap out of his slump. A new addition to the Peck rink was 14-year-old Matt Young, who joined his older brother, Bryce, in the top side for the first time. “They’re two great kids,” Dodd said. “Matt’s been a standout in the twos – you’ve got to earn a game and he’s earned it. “Youth definitely helps him. He’s young, he’s eager and there’s big upside to him. “He’s a kid who trains hard and has no fear.” Brenton Coad had a massive 18-shot win. Brett Foley snatched a two-shot victory from the jaws of defeat with a late run, while Dodd did the opposite, losing by a shot after leading all day. The A’s know this return to form will mean little if they can’t back it up with a win over Mentone on the road on Saturday. “We’ve dug a big hole for ourselves,” Dodd said. “We’ve got our sights set on winning every game between now and Christmas and coming back fresh after the break.” \ LJ

freak dismissal can’t stop altona

AFL draft

vsdca

It was a night of high tension for James Sicily, but the top Western Jets prospect found an attractive landing spot in the AFL national draft. Sicily was the Jets’ only live selection on draft night when his name was called out by reigning premiers Hawthorn with pick 56. A quiet night of business for the Jets on the face of it, but dig a little deeper and you’ll find a senior list elevation of Kyle Hartigan at the Adelaide Crows and a rookie spot granted to Johnny Rayner, both graduates of the Jets’ program. “It’s a good result for us,” Jets “HE’s a region manager Shane Sexton told genius at the Weekly. “We’re very happy to be getting to on the board, as it were. the right “We were hopeful for some of the spot” other kids, but there’s a big rookie draft coming up so hopefully we can add to that.” Sicily was being talked up in the lead-in to the draft because of a range of factors. For starters, his talent was identified early in the season when he represented Vic Metro at the national championships. His form with the Jets in the TAC Cup never waned. A top-three finish in the best-and-fairest reflected his consistency over 16 games, including 26 goals and being Happy Hawk: James Sicily will don the brown and gold of Hawthorn next season.

Altona did not let the bizarre dismissal of gun batsman Aaron Maynard stop it from securing its fourth win from five matches in Victorian Sub-District Cricket. All the talk in the A’s camp after Saturday’s scrappy four-wicket win against Croydon at the Frank Kirk Oval centred on the rare wicket of Maynard. He had moved along to a confident 29 when he smashed a shot to square leg. The ball deviated off the fingers of the fielder and into the umpire, only to rebound back to the fielder for a catch. The umpires convened and ruled it out, with Croydon captain Hagan Shakespeare accepting the decision. “It was a controversial decision,” A’s coach Mike Davenport said. “Probably in the spirit of cricket, their captain could’ve called him back ... I’m not saying that it’s right or wrong.” For the record, Cricket Victoria manager Peter Binns says the umpires got it spot on. Law 32.3 (e) states: “A catch shall be considered to have been fairly made if a fielder catches the ball after it has touched an umpire, another fielder or the other batsman.” Croydon still managed to post 121 from 37 overs as the A’s coughed up 24 extras and the tail wagged to recover from a precarious 4-8. Lee Elmore was the pick of the A’s bowlers with 3-24, while spinner all-rounder and captain Shane Jones took 3-28. The A’s run chase was patchy, like their bowling performance. They lost their first wicket for no runs, followed by a recovery before Maynard’s bad luck sparked a mini-collapse of 4-8. A second wind provided by Josh Young (38) and Jones (26 not out) proved to be the knock-out blow. \ LJ

knights’ delight fuels doggie boldness AFL draft

The Western Bulldogs made a bold decision to draft Marcus Bontempelli with their prized fourth pick in the AFL national draft. Bontempelli was initially tipped to go in the teens, but his draft stocks rose on the back of a stellar second half of the season with the Northern Knights in the TAC Cup. Bontempelli, who celebrated his 18th birthday last Sunday, has a lot of room for growth and development. He is a point-of-difference midfielder – tall, rangy and with a lethal left boot.

His endurance base is strong and he has the flexibility to play on most lines on the ground. The Bulldogs opted for a matured-aged player with their second selection, the 42nd overall. Matt Fuller, a 23-year-old from Norwood in the SANFL, will bolster the club’s mid-sized defensive stocks. Fuller is known for his lethal foot skills and ability to read the play. With the final pick, 60th overall, the Dogs snapped up Mitch Honeychurch from the Eastern Ranges in what could be a late draft steal.

Honeychurch, an in-and-under midfielder or small forward, was Vic Metro’s most valuable player at the under-18 national championships and made the All-Australian team. His attack on the contest is far superior to what his slight 175cm height and 67kg frame might suggest. The AFL’s rookie and preseason drafts will take place today. \ LJ Master and apprentice: Western Bulldogs coach Brendan McCartney welcomes first-round draft pick Marcus Bontempelli to the Kennel.
