He blamed the state government for making TAFE courses inaccessible for those who needed them. ‘‘For all intents and purposes, this government is hell bent on removing access to programs for low income and disadvantaged students.’’ University of Canberra vice chancellor Stephen Parker said the Chadstone campus was going to be a very significant tertiary base for the university. ‘‘I hope that it is going to be the beginning of something bigger so that the university’s programs and Holmesglen programs can be taken nationally together.’’

HOLMESGLEN TAFE could suffer a further round of staff redundancies next year, despite the University of Canberra last week moving to open a campus at its Chadstone headquarters. Australian Education Union TAFE spokesman, Greg Barclay, said he feared that Holmesglen’s increased fees would turn away students and force the TAFE provider to cut jobs to make more savings. Next year, student fees are expected to rise by about 60 per cent, Holmesglen chief executive Bruce Mackenzie told the Weekly. He also said that the TAFE’s future would depend on maintaining its enrolments for next year. Mr Barclay said that since many TAFE students came from disadvantaged backgrounds they were particularly sensitive to fee increases. ‘‘Our fear is that those fees will actually turn people away, which will mean that in turn, courses are no longer viable and need to be shut down,’’ Mr Barclay said. ‘‘We will probably see another wave of redundancies for our members in February and March next year.’’ After it lost $30 million in funding from the state government, Holmesglen was forced to make cuts to its staffing levels to save $6 million, resulting in 60 staff redundancies this year. Mr Mackenzie said there was no need for more savings ‘‘provided that we capture enrolments and we capture fees’’. ‘‘We’re trying to minimise the impact on staff and students and that’s why we’ve dragged money from everywhere we can.’’ Holmesglen won a partial reprieve from the impact of state budget cuts with the University of Canberra announcing it would open a campus at its Chadstone headquarters. The branch campus, to be known as the University of Canberra Melbourne, will offer 11 new degree courses in areas such as business, commerce, justice, sports management, design, and information technology. Mr Barclay told the Weekly that the union understood TAFEs were businesses.

Parachute pollie pledges to stay in town BY DANIEL TRAN A MONASH election candidate who doesn’t live in Victoria for most of the year has vowed to drop out of university to return home to Chadstone if he is elected. Oakleigh ward candidate Benjamin Djung returns to Melbourne only twice a month, but he is standing for the Monash local government election this month. The 19-year-old political science student confirmed in a telephone call from Canberra last week that most of his time is now spent north of the border, where he’s in his first year of a bachelor of arts at the Australian National University. But Mr Djung says that he will abandon his studies for the next four years if he’s elected this month. ‘‘If the people of Oakleigh choose to elect me, that takes precedence over my personal commitments,’’ he said. Despite living in Canberra for most of the year, Mr Djung is still on the Victorian state electoral roll as a

Chadstone resident. Mr Djung says he was advised by a Liberal Party member he could run in the council election because he still returns to Melbourne regularly — about twice a month. ‘‘I’m not exactly sure what the exact specifications are but I do know that if I do return back to Melbourne on a regular basis I can still be classified as living in Melbourne.’’ In his Weekly election questionnaire, Mr Djung refused to answer whether he was a member of a political party. But on LinkedIn — a social media website for professionals — Mr Djung lists himself as a member of the ANU Liberal Club and a member of the Liberal Party since November 2010. The page also reveals he has worked as an intern with Queensland Liberal National Party senator Sue Boyce since May. On social media website Facebook, Mr Djung is friends with Theo Zographos, the Liberal Party candidate for Oakleigh and the electorate officer of Liberal MP Graham Watt. The two

Coming home?: Oakleigh Ward candidate Benjamin Djung spends most of the year in Canberra. men have been been connected on Facebook since November 2010 and share 21 mutual friends, including deputy opposition leader Julie Bishop,

Mr Watt, former Liberal Party member Matthew Hammon and Tony Smith, the former parliamentary secretary for John Howard and the cur-

rent federal member for Casey. Mr Djung said he had not disclosed his Liberal Party membership because he was running as an independent candidate. ‘‘In hindsight, given how it looks now, maybe I should have disclosed it.’’ Should he not be elected, Mr Djung is directing his preferences to fellow Oakleigh Ward candidate Theo Zographos. His next four preferences flow to Christian Farinaccio, John Scannell, Tony Nalbant and Catherine Jane Ettery — all of whom also preference Mr Zographos. Mr Djung says that he and Mr Zographos met through the Liberal Party. ‘‘We’re really good friends, and obviously that plays as a factor into who I preference because he’s my mate, but also because he shares the same political values as I do.’’ Mr Djung rejected the notion that he and Mr Zographos are running mates. He insists he’s a genuine candidate. ‘‘I am running with the intention to win.’’

Councillor’s demand: scrap Oakleigh poll BY DANIEL TRAN A MONASH councillor has taken the extraordinary step of asking the Victorian Electoral Commission to declare the Oakleigh Ward election void and re-run it at a later date. Last week, Glen Waverley Ward incumbent Geoff Lake lodged an official complaint with the VEC against Oakleigh Ward candidate Benjamin Djung. The Weekly has learned that Mr Djung, 19, lives in Canberra, where he studies at the Australian National University (see page 4). Mr Djung said he was advised by a Liberal Party member he could run in the Oakleigh ward because he still returns to Melbourne regularly — about twice a month. But in a letter to Jeff Gazzard, the returning officer for the Monash council elections, Mr Lake said Mr Djung was not eligible to be a candidate despite being listed on the electoral roll at a Chadstone address. ‘‘By his own admission, Mr Djung does not satisfy the residency requirements on which his

enrolment, and therefore his candidature, is based because this Chadstone property is not his principal place of residence,’’ it said. ‘‘It would appear that Mr Djung is not qualified to be a candidate given that he is not entitled to be on the electoral roll at the Chadstone address.’’ Preference data shows that if Mr Djung fails in his bid to win a seat on the council, his preferences will flow to fellow Oakleigh Ward candidate and Liberal Party member Theo Zographos, and then to other candidates who also preference Mr Zographos. Mr Lake told the Weekly he had asked the returning officer to declare the Oakleigh election void. ‘‘I understand this is an extraordinary step, but when a major political party is implicated in running illegal candidates that will likely tarnish the electoral outcome, the community deserves appropriate action be taken to protect the democratic legitimacy of the process.’’ ‘‘The Oakleigh Ward election is now tarnished beyond repair.’’ While the VEC would not directly comment on

Huge step: Glen Waverley ward incumbent Geoff Lake has lodged a complaint with the returning officer for the Monash council elections. Picture: Mario Borg/The Age the case, information officer Paul ThorntonSmith clarified the criteria for candidates to run in a local election. ‘‘I can’t speak about any individual but you have to be enrolled for the principal place of residence,’’ he said. ‘‘The principal place of residence includes the place of living to which a person, when temporarily living elsewhere, has a fixed intention of returning for the purpose of continuing to live at that place.

‘‘If somebody’s temporarily living away from their home but they intend to go back there, it’s still the principal place of residence. There are quite a few students in that position.’’ Mr Thornton-Smith said the definition was vague. ‘‘It’s up to the person to be honest but to interpret it.’’ ‘‘When everybody nominates, they have to make a declaration saying they’re qualified to be a candidate. They have to basically say it in good faith, that they’re qualified to be a candidate.’’

Kinder class still on despite theft BY DANIEL TRAN A 40-year-old Oakleigh South man will appear in the Melbourne Magistrates Court this week, charged with the theft of more than $200,000 from a Monash kindergarten. Police allege that between January and August this year the man, who is a member of the kindergarten’s parent committee, stole $200,879 from the kindergarten’s accounts. The money is believed to be the proceeds of several years of fundraising by kindergarten parents, and

state education department grants. Detective Senior Constable Matt De Boer, of the Monash crime investigation unit, said the man has been bailed and was due to face a filing hearing tomorrow. The kindergarten is run by Early Childhood Management Services, a not-for-profit organisation. Chief executive Bernie Nott said the organisation wanted to reassure parents that the kindergarten would continue to offer its services. ‘‘There’s no problem with our continuing operation of the

kindergarten at all,’’ Mr Nott said. ‘‘It’s unfortunate that this event has occurred and we’ll let the process follow through the courts as it will.’’ Mr Nott said the alleged theft would not impact the day-to-day running of the kindergarten. ‘‘Parents can be confident that the kinder will continue to operate.’’ According to its most recent annual report, ECMS runs 47 kindergartens and nine daycare centres across Melbourne. Almost 4750 families use ECMS early childhood services and about

3000 children are enrolled in the kindergarten program. Term fees are $265 for three year olds and $455 for four year olds. Mr Nott declined to comment on whether kindergarten staff had noticed anything out of order. ‘‘We’ve got a really dedicated team of staff at the kindergarten who are in no way implicated in this investigation. ‘‘They’re certainly concerned about it but they’re working really hard to continue to provide the great service they do.’’

YOURVOICE Re: Party claims questioned

Re: Not in the council’s interest

Isn’t the definition of Liberal something along the lines of: open to new behaviour or opinions and willing to discard traditional values? I would expect someone like Mulgrave ward candidate Tiffnee Mellech who has ‘‘strong Liberal values’’ to support the ALP as the Liberal Party does not hold liberal values at all.

It is shameful that Charlotte Baines would attack Lorraine Morrissey, a female candidate in the council elections. The MAV encouraged females to nominate and Charlotte is involved in the Building Bridges and Women in Leadership programmes at Monash Council, funded by local grants. Together with three current female councillors,

she mentored four other women who have nominated as candidates. It doesn’t make any sense for a female councillor who is a leader in these programmes to attack another woman who has nominated for election. Are female candidates only acceptable if they support her ALP philosophy? The MAV initiative is to be applauded. Jeanette Milnes, Wheelers Hill

MULGRAVE’S Alfred Sung didn’t expect to be dropped in the middle of Mildura when he asked his grammar school principal to help with a transfer. It was the ’60s and for the teenager who had spent most his life in Hong Kong, the move to the Australian countryside was a shock. He arrived in Australia in 1960 as a 17-year-old to study at Box Hill Grammar School. But his father, who he fondly describes as a blue collar worker, was only able to afford the fees for one year. In a bid to continue his education, Mr Sung, 70, went to the school principal — a Rotary Club member — and asked for help to get into a public school. ‘‘He talked to his club and they sponsored me as an exchange student to Mildura,’’ Mr Sung said. He spent the next year living with Rotary members and their families who helped pay school fees, supported him and even found him a job. They also made sure he did some extra homework. ‘‘They knew I didn’t speak English, so they tried to make conversations with me all the time. ‘‘Also, I wanted to learn. That made a difference.’’ When Mr Sung left Mildura and settled in

Leads sought in ’80s assault

‘It’s about repaying kindness’ BY DANIEL TRAN

â—?

Mulgrave, he left with more than what he had come to Australia with. In 1981, when he was offered the chance to join Rotary by the club’s Mildura district governor, he jumped at the opportunity. After 30 years as a loyal member, Mr Sung has taken on the presidency of the Rotary Club of Wheelers Hill. As the new head, he’ll continue to support the running costs of two school buses at St Jude’s College in Africa. Another project in East Timor supports the training of local women to use sewing machines. Closer to home, Mr Sung hopes to improve club membership and is a considering a project to install adult fitness equipment at a nearby park. He said he has never forgotten the kindness he received from Rotary. ‘‘I just want to repay back what Rotary did for me. ‘‘I just want to repay back and help the local community.’’

POLICE are again appealing for witnesses to a sexual assault on a work experience student in Glen Waverley more than 20 years ago to come forward. Detectives from the Box Hill Sexual Offences and Child Abuse Investigation Team were recently alerted to the crime and believe there may be other victims. The victim, who was 15 years old at the time of the alleged assault, reported the matter to police earlier this year. The sexual assault, which took place between 1988 and 1989, is alleged to have happened while the male victim was doing work experience with a builder in his 40s. The assaults were said to have occurred across the eastern suburbs, including Glen Waverley. Police believe other crimes of a similar nature were committed throughout the 1980s and 90s. Anyone with information about it or similar incidents can call Crime Stoppers, 1800 333 000.

Giving back: Alfred Sung has not forgotten the opportunities Rotary created for him as a young man.

From the beginning of June every year, Ms Kalan gets dozens of orders for her sought-after hats and things don’t slow down after the Melbourne Cup. ‘‘After the cup carnival, then interstate ones start,’’ she says, referring to the country races. ‘‘Right through the year, I’m busy.’’ Ms Kalan was trained at the Melbourne School of Fashion and qualified as a milliner in 1995. Her business, Maya Kalan Millin-

ery, has been successful both in Australia and overseas after numerous Fashion On the Field wins. It takes about a week for Ms Kalan to make one of her trademark creations. ‘‘I’m famous for big hats,’’ she quips. First, she has her customers bring in their outfit, shoes, handbag and jewellery, and she accounts for the shape of a client’s face. On average, Ms Kalan makes about 60 hats a year. Last year, one of her creations won fashions on the field at the Caulfield Guineas. Despite how much she works, it is certainly not a chore. ‘‘My passion is hats.’’

TIMEOUT ●

On a blokey frequency BY DANIEL TRAN OR the men out there who can’t make it to their local Men’s Shed, never fear; all you need is your radio. The Monash Men’s Shed has been hitting the airwaves for the past few months and recently promoted to a monthly morning slot on community station 3WBC. The show, Hanging out in the men’s shed, is hosted by Monash shed coordinator Ray Allen on the first Saturday of every month and goes out to about 46,000 people. ‘‘We talk about anything to do with Men’s Sheds and men’s health,’’ Allen says. The Men’s Shed movement started in Australia and recognises the need

for older blokes to maintain contact in retirement, to share experiences and to talk about their health. Music on the show ranges from Neil Diamond to Peter, Paul and Mary — tunes that baby boomers, who as it happens make up most of those hanging out in the shed, would appreciate. And although they’re unable to take calls from listeners at this stage, Allen hopes to be able to do so in the near future. He says the radio program was aimed at men who couldn’t get to their local shed. ‘‘It doesn’t matter where you are in the world because if you go to www.3wbc.org.au, you can follow the links and you can hear it, as my son did in Ireland.’’ The program will also be uploaded to theshedonline.com.au, a new initiative by the Australian Men’s Shed Association. ‘‘There’s lots of blogs and topics that they can get involved with from home.

And as of next month I’ll be uploading the program to it every month,’’ says Allen. The radio program is only one of a number of successes the Monash Men’s Shed has celebrated this year — it’s also recently recorded its 110th member. Allen says the shed gives retired men who can succumb to loneliness a feeling of camaraderie. ‘‘Men essentially are not communicators. They’re not good communicators and they’re not good at looking after their health. ‘‘One of the great things about the Men’s Shed is when they come in oneon-one, working shoulder-toshoulder, they find they open up to each other.’’ Residents can hear Hanging out in the men’s shed on the first Saturday of every month on 3WBC 94.1FM.

Now, it’s over to the savvy voter ET’S try a quick quiz: Who’s the prime minister of Australia? Can you name the premier of Victoria? What about the mayor of Monash Council? Or the councillor for the very ward in which you live? If you’ve answered each of those, well done. But if not: why not? Figures from the Victorian Electoral Commission imply voters are far less engaged with councils than other levels of government. In the 2008 council elections, almost 76.5 per cent voted in postal elections. By contrast just 70 per cent turned out at the handful of attendance elections. In Monash, there were 119,575 registered voters at the previous election. But of these, only 94,271 people voted and 3492 did so informally. A staggering 25,304 people either declined to vote, forgot to fill out their ballot papers or were too lazy to exercise their democratic rights. Voting is compulsory at a council election for residents on the state electoral roll. Residents aged over 70 are encouraged to vote, as are nonresident property owners, but will not be fined if they don’t. Locals who don’t vote are intially given the benefit of the doubt and asked to provide an excuse, but at the previous election Monash council raked in $326,309 in fines from 6849 people who failed to give a valid reason for failing to vote. By contrast, about 92 per cent of people took part in the 2010 state election, with an informal voting rate of 4.96 per cent — half the informal vote of the council poll. So why are people so uninterested in their local council — and willing to cop a $56 fine for not voting — when the decisions it makes are so much closer to home than those of Spring Street or Canberra? “I think it’s that local government is misunderstood,” says Rob Spence, chief executive officer of the Municipal Association of Victoria. “I know there’s a view that councils are a waste of time, but stand out on your front lawn and look

L

In the 2008 council elections, just 76 per cent of enrolled voters across Victoria cast their ballots. With voter turnout rates much higher for state and federal elections — and this month’s council elections looming — NATALIE KOTSIOS and DANIEL TRAN ask: Why don’t we care about local government? out — everything comes from the council. The roads, the footpaths, the parks, and you can have a say in shaping that.’’ Councils’ main responsibilities are broken down to the three Rs: roads, rubbish and – the touchiest subject of all – rates. But their duties go much further. They, more than any other level of politics, decide what sort of development happens in your neighbourhood and what direction your suburb’s future will take. Ken Coghill, director of Monash University’s governance research unit, says the importance of local government to people’s day-to-day lives cannot be underestimated. “They’re in charge of everything, from safe and secure roads right through to the really important decisions about the future of the community, so it’s really important councillors know they’ve got the full support or authority of the public. “The lack of interest weakens democracy. If a council does something you don’t like, then you’ve only got yourself to blame. “If 20 or 30 per cent of voters don’t vote, then that’s 20 or 30 per cent who don’t have their views represented.” But Mr Coghill is quick to say the responsibility is not just on residents. Councillors — and candidates — need to get out and show people what they stand for, make themselves available and encourage their interest. “The responsibility is on the candidates to get out and about, meeting and greeting, and taking every opportunity to communicate with the peo-

ple they want to vote for them. They have to have a strong bond with the community they want to represent and they should work hard to maintain the local channels in the community.’’ Mr Coghill says the council as an institution should “let people know what’s going on and what decisions are being made” and encourage them to be involved in its processes. Any inclination to closed council meetings, or not making all its decisions transparent just weakens its authority and further discourages local engagement. “If people know what’s going on, they are much more likely to take an active interest.” But Mr Spence — who’s been involved with the MAV since the late 1980s — is quick to defend councils’ processes and rejects the suggestion that they prefer to operate behind closed doors. “In my view, the legislative framework of council drives transparency and openness. Most decisions have to be made in open meetings. We are an incredibly highly regulated arena.” Less regulated is the increasing party politics in council elections. Once the domain of the state and federal arenas, it’s now not uncommon to have council candidates who are also members of political parties, or parties beefing up the ballot with dummy candidates. Mr Coghill, however, believes there is no problem with party politics in the council sphere. “I’m aware the Liberal and Labor parties are backing people, and I believe the Liberal Party is doing so much more than previously. It’s a useful guide to voters – if they are open about it.” Mr Spence agrees, providing candidates disclose where they stand. “I’m not advocating the

Bated breath: Candidates for the Monash Council election eagerly await for the ballot to be drawn. party structure, but it does challenge how we operate. To really politicise the structure would be a bad thing, though.” Some would argue though that the system is already politicised, particularly with the use of dummy candidates. But this is something Mr Coghill says is an inevitable outcome of the preferential voting system. “It’s worrying, but then if one person is vocal and another is running dead, I think voters are smart enough to see through that tactic. “The really important thing is that people who are genuinely interested have to make the effort to attract voters.” The answer in the end seems clear: We get the democracy we deserve because we all – residents, voters, councillors, candidates – are responsible for creating it. Mr Spence is not sure if the perceived apathy is a fault of councils or voters, but muses it also has much to do with media attention. “With state and federal government elections, every piece of media leads with it, you’re saturated with it. “There’s nowhere near that attention in local government. It’s much more low-key, which affects the turnout and interest – a lot say they don’t even realise they need to vote.”

GETTING out and about in our neighbourhood is something most of us take for granted. For disabled people, getting out and joining in social activities can be an uphill battle, not to mention the possibility of isolation and remoteness. Sharon Browne of Villa Maria, a not-forprofit support organisation for the elderly and people with a disability, said for many clients community access was difficult. Villa Maria, which has care centres in Mount Waverley and Wantirna, has launched a new fund-raising appeal and it is hoped Monash residents will get behind the cause. Ms Browne said transport was a huge issue given the complexities of various disabilities. ‘‘Some people may not live close to a transport route and are entirely reliant on others for support.’’ She said in most instances, regular buses

A MONASH researcher is making inroads into discovering how doctors can stifle the spread of breast cancer through the bodies of people who suffer high levels of stress. Caroline Le, 23, says there is a clear link between the effects of chronic stress on the immune system and cancer progression. Her Monash University pharmaceutical science team is studying mice to try to ‘‘decipher the mechanics’’ about what’s going on, and how to stop it. “Stress is very difficult to measure, so I’m looking at ways to quantify stress and identify molecular markers in the body to help with this quantifying process,” Ms Le said. Findings so far raise the possibility of common drugs, called beta blockers, being used to prevent the spread of breast cancer. Beta blockers are normally used to treat hypertension, high blood pressure and chest pains. Since starting her research in March 2011, Ms Le says her determination has been fuelled by the fact that the research takes a fresh look at one of the most common conditions of modern life.

‘‘It’s well-established that when you’re stressed you get sick more easily, because your immune system is weakened. ‘‘But you hear about stress, and people automatically think it’s bad for you, but it’s never really been quantified and there’s never been any real evidence behind it. ‘‘Then you hear about cancer, about how it affects a lot of people, but in terms of causes there’s not a great deal that’s been done on it. I guess that’s why this work is interesting.’’ Ms Le hopes to finish her 100,000-word thesis by early 2013.

Tie a ribbon Monash residents still have the opportunity to volunteer for Pink Ribbon Day. The day raises money and awareness for breast cancer — which remains the most common cancer in women. Last year, of the 763 Victorian women who died from the disease, 27 were from Monash. Money from the sale of pink ribbons and other merchandise will go towards research, prevention programs and support services. Volunteers will be asked to give up a morning or an afternoon to help at a Pink Ribbon Day stall. Details: Lynette Phuong, 9635 5201 or email lynette.phuong@cancervic.org.au.

MOTORING ●

A coupe de grace The Volkswagen CC is all style, says Ewan Kennedy.

F

Curvy: Shapely lines of the latest Volkswagen four-door coupe are its biggest talking point. the extra smoothness provided by a V6 engine and petrol injection but also VW’s 4Motion allwheel drive system. The latter provides added traction on slippery surfaces or when pulling sharply out of a side street into a small gap in heavy traffic. Just the thing for helping us make time during the school holiday period when dithery drivers slow us locals up.This powertrain can

accelerate the big coupe to 100 km/h from rest in just 5.6 seconds. Yet on test we found the VW CC using only eight to ten litres per 100 kilometres around town. Getting petrol consumption below seven litres per hundred when touring was simple with a bit of attention to economy driving.

lower-than-average door opening, particularly when getting into the CC. Soft-touch cabin surroundings and leather trimmed seats continue the feel of the exterior quality. The boot is relatively shallow but, cleverly, it can be opened by making a kicking movement under the rear of the car. You need to have the key in your pocket or bag so that the CC senses you’re authorised to open the bootlid in this manner. Volkswagen CC comes with the choice of two engines — a 3.6-litre V6 FSI petrol putting out 220kW of power and a 2.0-litre TDI commonrail turbo-diesel delivering 125kW. Both engines produce 350 Nm of torque: the petrol between 2400 and 5300 rpm, the diesel from a low 1750 revs. Both engines sit beside a six-speed DSG double-clutch automatic that has a semi-manual mode using either the gear lever or steering wheel-mounted shift paddles. Our test car was the petrol, which not only has

our-door coupes make a lot of sense in today’s world. As the baby boomers get older and their limbs get stiffer they want the convenience of a four-door sedan but love the idea of driving a sleek, stylish two-door coupe. Mercedes-Benz began the four-door coupe trend with its CLS in the early years of the 21st century. Volkswagen’s Passat CC was the first of the affordable cars in the class. In an interesting move, the German giant has decided not to call the all-new model a Passat, but simply a ‘CC’.

Comp gives rising talent a leg-up BY ROY WARD ASPIRING tennis professional Aaron LeederChard sees the new Asia-Pacific Tennis League Victorian competition as a major stepping stone into the summer season. The ATL was created to give emerging players some money and some tough competition in the lead-up to the major tennis tournaments of the summer while giving local supporters the chance to see tennis in a new format. Sets are played to four games instead of six and each club hosts a full round of matches. The competition, which has both men’s and women’s leagues, begins on November 11 with NSW, Queensland and South Australia also hosting versions of the competition. The best Australian teams will play in the ATL

playoffs at Melbourne Park during the second week of the Australian Open against competition winners from New Zealand and Asia. Leeder-Chard, ranked 1233 in the world, was asked by Waverley Warriors team manager Lyn Gillen to join the team, which will be run by the Waverley Tennis Association and play its home round at the association’s base at Doveton Tennis Club. Each team will have nine players who will play in four singles ties and two doubles matches with older, former tour veterans mixing with current and aspiring players. The 21 year old, who comes from Mt Eliza, said the format of the competition and the offer of match payments made it a winner in his eyes. ‘‘Being a tennis player is quite hard and really expensive.

‘‘So giving us player payments help us out, and if we can be at home and pick up a bit of money it will help us afford the travel to tournaments later in the year.’’ Leeder-Chard said playing in a team event also appealed to him after playing in futures events in Thailand and Japan along with other events in Cairns, Alice Springs and Western Australia. ‘‘I’ve never played with this format before. ‘‘It’s pretty interesting and exciting. You have a coach on court and the team spirit is always refreshing because it’s not just about yourself — it’s about the team.’’ Waverley Tennis will host a ATL super round, featuring men’s and women’s matches, at Doveton Tennis Club on November 25, starting at 1pm.

Warriors captain relishes short format ASHLEIGH Capannolo has been part of a team her whole life, so when it comes to the new Asia-Pacific Tennis League the team concept is nothing new. The 17 year old will join twin sister Taylor in the Waverley Warriors team in the ACL Victoria women’s division. The season will start on November 11 and Capannolo will captain a very young Warriors side into matches against some much stronger opponents. But Capannolo, who lives in Hawthorn, said she couldn’t wait to get on court and test herself in the shortformat matches. ‘‘I love playing in teams,’’ she said. ‘‘I have played doubles with my

sister a fair bit and hopefully we will get to play together during the season. As captain, I’m told I have to mix around our pairings and sort out who plays each weeks, so that will be something different as well.’’ Capannolo will also have to lead the line as the No. 1 player in the side. ‘‘There will be some really top players in the competition and some strong teams. ‘‘I played as the No. 1 this year in section 1 of the pennant competition but haven’t played in the [Victorian] premier league tennis, so it will be a really good test.’’ Capannolo has spent the past few months fitting school work between platinum events in Darwin, Western Australia and Adelaide against older,

more experienced players and she believes those matches will help her in the ATL. She said she looked forward to the mix of matches between Friday nights and Sunday afternoons during the six-week ATL competition. ‘‘I’ve done a few things like this [format] before in junior pennant and in some state grade competitions. I also love having the chance to get some good matches in before the summer, when we have so many tournaments.’’ Waverley Warriors women will play their first game in the ATL Victorian competition on November 16 at Frankston; they have a bye in round 1. — Roy Ward

Pair may not stay at Cannons OAKLEIGH Cannons co-coaches Peter Zois and Bill Theodoropoulos look unlikely to lead the side together in 2013. The duo took over in round 10, taking the Cannons to the Victorian Premier League grand final last Sunday when they lost to Dandenong Thunder 2-1. The defeat was the Cannons’ second straight grand final loss. After the game, Theodoropoulos and Zois were asked about their plans for next year. Theodoropoulos said it was too soon to commit himself but wanted to remain in coaching. Zois, who is also goalkeeping coach with A-League club Melbourne Heart, didn’t state his intentions but it is believed he will not be returning to the Cannons next year. Theodoropoulos confirmed the pair had only agreed to take charge of the side until the end of this season. “We told the club we would wait the year out and be the stand-ins if you would like to call us that,” he said. “We would wait the year out and see

what we want to do with the team — on my behalf there is no commitment yet. “The committee will make its own decision.” But when pressed about whether he wanted to coach again, Theodoropoulos confirmed he was keen to remain. “The way I’m feeling at the moment, it’s a hard call,” he said. “But you are in it to coach and make a career out of it; you wouldn’t be in it for so long otherwise. “With the bunch of boys we’ve got we have an opportunity to challenge for the next couple of years and it’s a young squad.’’ Asked about the effect a second straight grand final loss might have on the Cannons, Zois said the disappointment of losing could hurt the club. “Firstly the club will have a direction they want to go in financially,” he said. “They will need to be looking at how successful they want to be in the league so I don’t think it will have too much of a positive effect.

Stars coach calls time FORMER Southern Stars coach Dean Hennessy is hoping to lead another Victorian Premier League club next year after leaving the Stars. The Hennessy-coached Stars went from division 2 in 2010 to playing in the VPL this year and, despite financial troubles, managed to keep their place in the top flight. After talking with Stars officials in the past few weeks, Hennessy has decided to call time on his tenure with the club as the player budget would be severely cut in 2013. ‘‘It’s been well-documented that the club has had its issues,’’ Hennessy said. ‘‘When I was told the budget we could work to next year, I felt it would be nowhere near what we needed to be competitive. ‘‘But while this journey for me and the team comes to an end, there will be a new coach and a new committee and they will go on their own new journey.’’ Hennessy was full of kind words for the Stars and his players, who continued to play hard in the second half of the season despite finding out halfway through the season that the club would not be able to keep to ‘‘all the financial deals agreed to at the start of the season’’. ‘‘Apart from losing one or two players who needed to move because of their own situations, everyone stayed together,’’ Hennessy said. ‘‘It’s showed great character. We had a conversation about the club on the Thursday and then beat Dandenong Thunder on the Saturday. ‘‘In the second half of the season I thought we did really well to stay in the VPL.’’ Hennessy also revealed club officials had assured his players they would eventually receive any outstanding payments. ‘‘The club has been really good. That’s one thing I love about them and they will always have my respect. ‘‘Anything that is owed will be paid in full. That will take some time. ‘‘Tony, [Kiranci] The former president has worked very, very hard to make sure that is achieved.’’ With only a few openings likely to become available in the VPL, Hennessy said he would also look at rising clubs in State League 1 but he still hopes a VPL job may come his way. ‘‘I’m not leaving the Stars because I have another job. ‘‘I’ve been in the VPL for 30 years — since coming to play as a 17 year old — and after this season I believe I know what’s required to be successful in this league. ‘‘The VPL isn’t an easy league to get into, but I think what the club has achieved shows other division 1 and 2 sides that it’s possible to get there with lots of hard work from everyone at a club.’’ — Roy Ward

Tenacious Tigers hit back to deny Geelong BY ROY WARD RICHMOND grabbed victory from the jaws of defeat in stirring fashion over Geelong at Central Reserve on Saturday. The Cats were within reach of the win at 3-73 early, chasing the Tigers’ paltry 124, before collapsing to all out 118 with the last two wickets coming from run outs. The Tigers fell to 8-46 after being sent in before Chris Weeks (45) and captain Allan Wise (34) formed a 76-run partnership for the ninth wicket. The Tigers’ unexpected win continues the club’s hold over the Cats in Melbourne. Geelong has never beaten them in city-based matches. Tigers captain Allan Wise said his side never

gave up on the win. “The guys were a bit quite out there in the field,” he said. “I don’t know if they were looking inside a bit, or if like me they knew we just needed a wicket and anything could happen. “We got that wicket and it went from there. This win shows we have that belief in ourselves in any situation.” Defending such a small total, the Tigers needed all the help they could get from their bowlers and got leading performances from Victorian captain Cam White (3-19 from 10 overs), Wise (1-10 from nine overs) and part-time medium pacer Dom Matarazzo (2-15 from six overs). “Cam is very hard on himself and that is partly why he has gotten to such a high level of

cricket and his bowling was fantastic today,” Wise said. “I threw the ball to Dom because the pitch was starting to play very low and he bowls stump to stump. “He ended up giving us two very good wickets at a key stage.” Wise also praised his players for finding two run outs late in the match although he partly credited them to the pressure of the situation. “It’s amazing what pressure situations can be created in cricket and how people’s decisionmaking reacts both in the field and for the batsmen. “We benefited from those decisions today in terms of their running between the wickets.” The Tigers played Ringwood yesterday and the

match finished after the Weekly went to print. The Tigers will host Fitzroy-Doncaster at Central Reserve this Saturday for day one of a two-day match. Hawthorn-Monash University put on a fighting performance against Carlton at Princes Park on Saturday. The visiting Hawks kept the Blues to 9-180 from their 50 overs, with Javid Khan, Daniel O’Shea and Rod Keogh taking two wickets each. In reply, the Hawks couldn’t find the top-order partnership needed to steer them home, being bowled out for 155. Grant Westgarth made 54. The Hawks host Northcote in a two-day game at Monash University starting on Saturday.

Mount determined to bounce back MOUNT Waverley will do everything it can to avoid a disastrous start to the Victorian Sub District Cricket Association season when it plays Croydon this Saturday. Mount lost to Noble Park by 98 runs in its season opener at Pat Wright Senior Oval on Saturday and a loss to Croydon would see it winless facing round 3. Mt Waverley captain Dhugal Bedingfield said such a start would not be tolerated by the club, which wants to make the finals after finishing just short last year. ‘‘Losing to Croydon would be a disaster,’’ he said following the loss to Noble Park. ‘‘We will be very keen to bounce back and win; it’s a must-win game for us.” Against Noble Park, inconsistent bowling allowed the home side to get

away to a strong start with Darren Seccull (48) and Chanaka Gunawardana making 58 for the first wicket. Noble Park captain Marasinghe Perera (62) and Mevan Fernando (65 not out) combined to make a 77-run stand for the fifth wicket, helping their side to score 7-234 from 45 overs. In response, Mt Waverley needed its top order to fire but fell to 3-27 and never recovered as Noble Park opening bowlers Rizan Mawzoon (3-26) and Elphan Pepola (1-18) bowled tightly. Bedingfield (36) and Andrew Northridge put on 38 for the fourth wicket but after Perera (4-26) bowled Northridge around his legs, the visitors lost steady wickets and were bowled out for 136 from 36.2 overs. Bedingfield said his top-order batsmen and bowlers had struggled on the day.

“We wanted to keep them below 200 definitely,” he said. “We didn’t bowl as well as we could have, our line and length was inconsistent. “Their batsmen got away to a flyer and pounced on our lose bowling and we couldn’t do that. “That was where it was won and lost.” Perera said his side had worked hard over the off-season and wanted to make an impact on the 2012-13 season. “It was really good to get the first one,” he said. “The first game is crucial and whatever we win before Christmas sets up the whole tournament. “The openers did fantastic — they batted until the 20th over. ‘‘They set up the foundation and we carried it on from there.’’

STRONG batting was the order of the day in Southern Cricket League Menzies Shield action on Saturday. Four of the five teams that batted first scored in excess of 200 as batsmen made the most of fine conditions. Salesian Old Boys continue to enjoy their promotion to the League’s premier grade and, through the agency of the Herft brothers, have set Notting Hill Brandon Park a formidable target of 255 to chase. Chris Herft top-scored with 86 for the Old Boys and Cecil contributed 46. Marlon Boustead hit up 68 for Chadstone Harlequin in its score of 218 against premiers Cavaliers. Mt Waverley Uniting reboun-

ded following its poor first-game batting effort to amass 9-267 against St Pauls Glen Waverley. Uniting’s score came mainly through Tarquin Leaver (91) and Marc O’Donoghue (73). Toorak-Prahran put up a consistent batting performance against Glen Waverley, which must now chase 256. In the one game where the ball dominated, Mt Waverley Catholics secured first-innings points against St James Malvern Valley. Matt Jeffries for the Catholics starred with bat and ball, making 43 not out and taking 3-19. East Oakleigh hammered the Notting Hill Brandon Park bowling for 285 in Mackay Shield action. — Bill Weeden
