able, people should sell up and move out, while preserving the character of the area.’’ Tony Skinner, who has plans approved for subdivision on the back half of his block, said the council’s decision had taken away people’s democratic rights by not allowing further exhibition. ‘‘I have spent $10,000 taking this through the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal and they stated that there was no reason this subdivision should not be allowed,’’ he said. Mr Skinner said subdivisions could be handled appropriately, without removing native vegetation and still retaining the bush feel of the area. Geoff Oxford, who also has plans approved for subdivision, said the issue was handled badly by councillors. He said changes to the amendment also meant that people would not be able to rebuild their houses in the future in the same position. The issue is due to be voted on at an ordinary council meeting on June 11.

OVERLAY proposals for the Mt Eliza Woodland estate have divided a neighbourhood. Friends and neighbours have turned against each other over conflicting opinions on whether subdivision should be permitted in the area. Most of the 1700 homes in the estate — which covers the patch south of the Nepean Highway between Humphries and Canadian Bay roads — are built on large 2600-squaremetre blocks [0.6 acres]. At a May 20 development assessments committee meeting, councillors voted to adopt a Mornington Peninsula Shire planning scheme amendment to limit further subdivision in the area. In a controversial move, councillors adopted the recommendation put forward by officers and abolished a further exhibition period, opting instead to send the matter to an ordinary council meeting where, if passed, it will be sent

to Planning Minister Matthew Guy for his consideration. For the past decade many residents have been fighting against allowing subdivision in the bushy Woodland estate to preserve the neighbourhood character of the area. But others believe they should have the right to subdivide their properties and rebuild homes, as is now the case. A successful amendment put forward by Cr David Gibb stated the minimum lot sizes for the estate would be set at 2500 square metres and essentially put an end to further subdivision if it was endorsed by the council. Resident Stuart McIlroy, who has lived in the area for 33 years, said tighter planning controls were long overdue and he was happy with the meeting’s outcome. ‘‘It is a very unique area. You will not find an area like this anywhere in Melbourne and I would like it to stay that way,’’ he said. ‘‘That’s the reason most people move here in the first place.

It is as if the council election in 2012 never was. On Monday, May 13 the council defeated a motion by Cr Fraser by six to five. That decision negated councillors who share community concerns about shire debt. The fiscally responsible councillors, Bowden, Colomb, Rodgers, Fraser and Pittock, wanted to reduce the shire’s debt, by not increasing rates, and deferring more avoidable debt, through a strategic and sustainable process. The ‘winning’ councillors, Shaw, Dixon, Garnock, Martin, Gibb and Celi, want to increase the shire’s debt. Their failure to exercise fiscal restraint has committed the community to more borrowing and debt. The council has missed an opportunity to provide financially responsible leadership to the community, that would have over time, provided real and sustainable benefits. Ken Dyer, Rosebud West

This tip has a massive community resistance and I am outraged by Peninsula Waste Management development manager David Maltby’s assumption that having a landfill at this site will not impact negatively on anyone. What about the thousands of people who have signed the various petitions? I attended the official community meeting where it was standing room only at least 250-300 people. When asked questions regarding the tip, the shire members simply could not or would not answer. Seriously, what world are these shire members living in when they are confronted with a room full of people concerned about their homes, children’s school and welfare and they are more focused on discussing the upcoming Archibald Prize exhibition.

Nurses ‘feel betrayed’ over violence BY LEE OPITZ NURSES and midwives are being punched, hit, kicked, bitten, pushed, threatened with weapons and receiving death threats while at work caring for patients in Victorian hospitals — including in Frankston — says the Australian Nursing Federation. Union secretary Lisa Fitzpatrick said if violence of this sort was happening in any other workplace, something would be urgently done to stop it. “Nurses and midwives more often than not are left to fend for themselves, sometimes in extremely dangerous situations. They feel abandoned by those with the power to stop the violence and they feel betrayed when they are reprimanded for responding to the situation by calling for security or calling the police,’’ she said. Figures provided by Frankston Hospital show that in March and April there were 227 code greys (violence, aggression and threats without a weapon) and 134 planned code greys, where a person who has been previously identified as ‘problematic’ telephones the hospital to let staff know when they will be coming in to visit or for treatment.

There was just one code black, called when staff suspect there may be a weapon involved. No Frankston Hospital nurses were prepared to talk to the Weekly. The nursing federation is calling on the state government to implement basic staff protections recommended by Drugs and Crime Prevention Committee inquiry into violence and security arrangements in Victorian hospitals. These measures include developing and implementing clinically-led aggression management policies and procedures, annual education and training in preventing and managing violence and bullying, funding additional security personnel 24-hours a day and ensuring there are no adverse consequences for staff who speak out publicly about violence in the workplace. Health Minister David Davis said the government had invested an initial $5.8 million over four years and was making further investments to improve security and safety in Victorian hospitals and health services, including upgrading duress alarms and installing CCTV cameras in emergency departments. Forty hospitals will share in $1 million of funding announced last week to upgrade and improve safety and security systems.

Alarm bells: Frankston Hospital is not alone in experiencing threats and violence. Frankston Hospital was allocated $25,000 to develop a psychiatric assessment medical unit next to the emergency department, fitted with duress alarms and an emergency call system. Rosebud Hospital also received $25,000 to install a fixed duress alarm in a behavioural

assessment room and add a window to improve visibility and safety. Mr Davis said the government was also preparing legislation for longer jail sentences for people who attacked hospital emergency staff or other emergency workers while they were carrying out their duties.

Special delivery was on the nose BY SAMANTHA ROBIN

Unwelcome delivery: Commonfolk Coffee Company head roaster Ryan Toleman with the manure that was dumped on their doorstep.

[ 6 ] WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE May 29, 2013

A MORNINGTON coffee shop owner discovered an unpleasant delivery on his doorstep on Monday. A truckload of manure was waiting at the front of Sam Keck’s Commonfolk Coffee Company premises on Progress Street when his staff arrived at 6.30am. While laughing it off, Mr Keck said he was glad it wasn’t more serious. ‘‘It wasn’t a threat, but it still took a while to clean up. We hired a trailer and shovelled and removed it,’’ he said. ‘‘I’m surprised they managed to get so much of it. I’ve never heard of horse-shit coffee.’’ The coffee shop has come under fire from nearby businesses who say the eight on-site car parking spots are insufficient for the business, which is in the heart of Mornington’s industrial area. In April, the Weekly spoke to many nearby business owners who expressed concern about the busy street, lack of parking and potential

Mr Keck said apart from missing out on some beauty sleep following the weekend’s barista championship in Melbourne, there was no harm done. ‘‘I used most of it on the garden at home, away from my customers. ‘‘It is the intimidation that is the worst part, and my staff shouldn’t have to deal with it when they come to open up in the morning. It’s a petty and childish way to deal with things. ‘‘We’ve gone through the right protocols and had everything approved by the council. We have a business to run and we just have to get on with it.’’ Asked what his message to the culprits would be, Mr Keck said: ‘‘Thanks for the fertiliser.’’ Police are investigating the incident.

Actor escapes lure of the pokies BY SAMANTHA ROBIN ACTOR Steve Bastoni was the perfect choice to perform a skit promoting responsible gambling at a community awareness event hosted by the Seawinds Community Hub in Rosebud West last week. The high-profile actor, who has appeared in Neighbours and Underbelly, spoke about his own successful battle to overcome a gambling addiction. ‘‘Not everyone can gamble responsibly, some people suffer from addiction. I was one of those people,’’ he said. ‘‘It had a very negative impact on my life, I wasted a huge amount of money and it affected my domestic relationships. For me it was never about making money, I used the pokies as an escape.’’ Bastoni said he was now able to resist the temptation and hadn’t gambled in more than four years. His experience highlighted the message that there was no single profile for someone with a gambling addiction.

‘‘People may look at me and think I have the perfect life, but it has been a hard road fighting the addiction that controlled me for so long,’’ he said. ‘‘It can affect anyone, it doesn’t matter who you are. I have seen some very smart people become addicts.’’ Bastoni encouraged anyone struggling with a gambling addiction to get help. ‘‘The hardest part is admitting you are powerless over the addiction. Once you admit that, the road to recovery is easy.’’ Bastoni, who lives on the Mornington Peninsula, said he wanted to help create a safe and responsible community for his children. Gambler’s Help venue support worker Christine Cooper said gambling was becoming more readily available with the prevalence of smartphones and gaming on social networking sites. ‘‘These days people don’t need to go to the casino to have a bet. More than 8 million people have a smartphone,’’ she said. ‘‘A colleague was recently talking about his five year old playing a Simpsons game and when you got to a certain level you could go to the dog

track and have a bet. These games can seem innocent but it gets children into the habit of betting, and in these games they are geared for the gamer never to lose so it gives them an unrealistic picture of gambling. ‘‘It’s incredibly important for parents to monitor their children’s use of games and talk to them about these issues.’’ Ms Cooper said Gambler’s Help was not anti-

gambling — after all who didn’t enjoy an occasional flutter or buying raffle tickets for a school fete. ‘‘We just want people to know that help is available, it’s free and is only a phone call away. Don’t feel like you’re alone.’’ Gambler’s Help can be contacted on 1800 858 858.

No dropouts in push for hire education BY SAMANTHA ROBIN MORE young people are completing year 12 and going on to obtain higher qualifications than a decade ago, figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics show. Recently released data from the 2011 Census showed 85 per cent of 20-24 year olds had completed year 12 — up from 76 per cent in 2001. A group of Dromana College year 12 students said they were keen to see out the year and go on to further study. Tom Webb, 17, told the Weekly he was motivated to complete year 12 to fulfil his career ambition of becoming a Royal Australian Air Force pilot. ‘‘If you wanted to get into it without finishing year 12, you would be setting yourself up to fail,’’ he said. ‘‘You’ve got to put the hard work in now to reap the rewards later.’’ Fellow student Sarah Beardmore is hoping to study nursing at university. ‘‘I wouldn’t be able to become a nurse without completing further stud-

ies,’’ she said. ‘‘My qualifications will allow me to travel, so there are lots of advantages.’’ Gone are the days when many students could walk away from school at year 9 or 10 and fall into a trade or apprenticeship. Most employers now require prospective employees to have completed year 12 at the very minimum and the state government has lifted the school-leaving age to 17. These factors are contributing to many students having to study harder and longer than their predecessors. But the Dromana students said hitting the books was well worth the effort if it got them into a career they enjoyed. ‘‘Even though being a pilot for the air force does pay well, I would do it without getting paid. If it isn’t going to be fun, there is no point,’’ Tom said. Census director Sue Taylor said the proportion of young men and women in further education had changed dramatically over the past 40 years. In 1971, 29 per cent of 20-24 year old students in further education were women, but by 2011

Good prospects: Dromana College year 12 students Sarah Beardmore, Brad Shakespeare and Tom Webb are working hard to finish the year with flying colours. Picture: Samantha Robin that proportion had jumped to 53 per cent, she said. “A similar trend can be seen at both university and TAFE. ‘‘In 1971, 13 per cent of 20-24 year olds at TAFE were women, but by 2011 the gap had nar-

rowed considerably with women accounting for 44 per cent of TAFE students. ‘‘In 1971, women were in the minority at university, making up just one-third of students aged 20-24, but by 2011 they accounted for more than half.”

INBRIEF Drowning at Rye pier A 30-year-old man drowned in Rye at 2.15am on Saturday after falling into the water while fishing with a group of friends on the pier. No one in the group, including the victim, was able to swim. One of the friends called triple-0 and police, who were nearby, attended soon after. A police officer entered the water and recovered the man but a 70-minute resuscitation effort by police and paramedics failed to revive him. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Police are investigating the incident.

Car stolen and dumped Police are seeking witnesses to the theft of a black 2006 model Kia Rio, stolen from premises in Morris Street, Tootgarook, on Saturday. It was last seen about 1pm at the Main Creek picnic area in Cape Schanck, where it was later dumped. Flammable liquids were found in the boot of the vehicle but it were not set alight. Police believe the thieves had planned to torch the car. Anyone who may have seen the car in the Mornington Peninsula National Park on Saturday is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Computer room break-ins Police are investigating a spate of break-ins at school computer rooms. The most recent

incident happened on Saturday night at Red Hill Consolidated School where the computer room was broken into but nothing was taken. Police believe the would-be thieves were disturbed. It follows two similar incidents at Dromana College where computer equipment and laptops were taken. Anyone with information or who saw the break-in is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Fishing boat hits pier Four men were taken to hospital after their fishing boat crashed into the Portsea pier about 12.15pm last Wednesday. Sergeant Ian Christensen of Rye police said the commercial fishing boat, with a skipper and three divers aboard, hit the pier at an estimated speed of 15-20 knots. The four men on board were thrown forward. One of the divers was flown to The Alfred hospital with serious injuries. The other three were taken to Rosebud Hospital with minor injuries.

Stripped of modesty to aid veterans BY LEE OPITZ VIETNAM veteran Allan Paynter has shed his inhibitions to help raise money to support his comrades. Mr Paynter, of Mt Martha, is a contender for man of the month in the 2014 Men at War and Peace calendar in aid of Vietnam War veterans. The calendar will feature veterans posing in the buff while carrying out their favourite activity. As a keen fisherman, a billabong and strategically placed fishing rod were chosen as fitting props for Mr Paynter’s shoot. ‘‘Our kids call him ‘Mr Prudey’, so it’s a big thing for him to take his clothes off. The family thinks this is all very funny,’’ his wife Lucy said. Former veteran Greg Carter said he and his wife Annie decided to produce the calendar to raise funds for veterans’ welfare services and their Bairnsdale retreat Cockatoo Rise, where Vietnam veterans, their partners and widows can stay and play free of charge. This is the second naked calendar produced by the pair. The first, in 2006, raised $65,000.

‘‘Men at War and Peace sees veterans shed all their worries, fatigues, medals and RSL badges to flaunt the freedom they served for,’’ said Mr Carter, who also photographed the subjects. ‘‘We may not be as taut and trim as we were in army days, but if older ladies can get their gear off, why can’t we? We want to show the world how much we Vietnam veterans can still enjoy life.’’ Mr Paynter, 66, was a ‘tunnel rat’ with the Royal Australian Engineers and served in Vietnam in 1968-69. A member of the Mornington RSL, he said it was important to do something for his mates, and the retreat was a wonderful place for veterans to stay. Mr Carter is looking for more veterans willing to pose for the calendar. Monthly winners will be chosen by the ladies of the local bowls club, and the rest will be included in a gallery at the back of the calendar. To volunteer, call Allan Paynter on 0409 418 332 or go to menatwarandpeace.com.au.

In the buff: Allan Paynter exposed more of himself than ever before in public in support of fellow veterans.

Holidays still enjoyed, thanks to hospital hours of dialysis, three times a week. ‘‘Patients come from everywhere,’’ dialysis and chemotherapy nurse unit manager Andrea Sutton said. ‘‘Most live in Melbourne, but there are also regular interstate visitors and some have travelled from as far away as England and New Zealand. ‘‘It allows people who normally can’t travel for more than two days without treatment to have a break with their families.’’ While some hospitals, including Frankston, can provide a dialysis chair for respite — depending on availability — Rosebud is one of the few Australian hospitals with a dedicated chair. The unit has received more than 40 nominations for the award from patients, family members and staff. “It is so exciting to be nominated. We work really hard to provide our patients with this opportunity so it’s nice to be recognised,” Ms Sutton said.

PEOPLE with a kidney condition who are restricted by treatment can still enjoy a holiday on the Mornington Peninsula, thanks to a program at Rosebud Hospital. For the past eight years the hospital’s dialysis unit has run a holiday program specifically for dialysis-dependent patients which enables them to enjoy a holiday with family and friends. The program has been nominated for a Kidney Health Australia Operation Angel Award which recognises people and organisations who make outstanding contributions in the kidney community. Nominees may be a person living with kidney disease, carer, family member, volunteer, health professional or organisation. Last year, the unit completed 351 holiday treatments and is likely to provide even more this year for patients who require four to five

Vintage look on a budget

Green Route – Rosebud to Monash University Clayton (via Frankston Station) - Return

BY LEE OPITZ THE Mornington Vinnies Centre has become the bridal hub of the region after an unexpected boost in donations. Shop manager Sue Hill said there were a variety of dresses on offer, old and new, in all sizes and styles. Prices range from as little as $5, up to $150. ‘‘They are appropriate for weddings or debs. We also have bridesmaid, flowergirl and confirmation dresses, as well as shoes, accessories and stationery,’’ she said. ‘‘People like to recycle and these dresses are something special. And best of all, the money goes straight back into helping others.’’ Retail operations manager for Vinnies stores Michael Rawlinson said many of the gowns came from a large donation of formal wear by an anonymous business. “A lot of it is brand new, and with something like bridal wear it’s better for customers when you’re able to present them with a range of options. ‘‘We see more and more women who are

from the restaurants bring the kids


FEATURESTORY With National Volunteer Week just past, the Weekly visited a group of volunteers who help young people — and their families — through tough times. LEE OPITZ reports.

Willing helpers filling the void he 2012 World Giving Index shows Australians are the most generous people on Earth. The index, compiled by the Charities Aid Foundation, shows in that year 75 per cent of Australians gave to a good cause, 67 per cent went out of their way to help a stranger and 37 per cent volunteered their time in the service of others. This generosity is reflected in 2011 census figures: about 6700 people in Frankston and more than 3200 on the Mornington Peninsula volunteered their time to a group or organisation. Some of them have lent a hand to OzChild, the longest continuous service to children and families in Victoria since the gold rush era of 1851. The Frankston branch has about 117 volunteers and on average, 80 clients at any one time. The recruitment and training co-ordinator Lisa Jones is responsible for bringing volunteers into the program, trying to hang on to the ones it has got and making sure they are trained. ‘‘We have a big turnover of people. We get a lot of students coming in who tend to commit for 12 months but also have a lot of people who’ve been in the program for a long time. One of them has been matched for five years. “Many are retirees who have finished their careers and are looking for something fulfilling and have more time to give. ‘‘So as fast as we get people out of the door we are getting them back in, but demand always far exceeds supply.” OzChild provides family support services, foster care, home-based and residential care, disability services, education support and legal advice and representation. Family support programs operate from its Frankston office and cover Frankston City and the Mornington Peninsula and Cardinia shires. Former funeral director Annie, a volunteer whose surname cannot be mentioned for privacy reasons, lives on the peninsula and has been with the program for four years. ‘‘When I retired I wanted to do something where I could help someone less fortunate, helping to guide them through difficult times in their lives. It’s rewarding to be with somebody who gives you their trust. They can talk about things that they know won’t go any further,” she says. For one of Annie’s clients, Susan, that trust is everything. For the first time in her life, the 17-year-old single mother has someone she can rely on. “I had to look after mum when she was sick, and had to be the adult when I was still a kid,’’ Susan says. ‘‘I didn’t have a childhood. I had to look after everyone else and wasn’t looking after myself. The baby was unexpected. I was told I couldn’t have kids. “Annie was already there as mum’s mentor when I fell pregnant. Dad didn’t approve and kicked me out. She was there for me throughout the pregnancy and has always been there for me. She’s helped me so much. I can talk to her about anything, and if I didn’t have her, I’d be lost.”

T

Making a difference: Paul enjoys his volunteer work with young people.

‘Anyone can make a good volunteer; as long as you have a kind heart and willing to give your time. Everyone has something to offer one way or another.’ — Paul With Annie’s encouragement, Susan has returned to study in Frankston and is hoping to get a builder’s apprenticeship. “I know now what I want to do.’’ In the nearby shire of Cardinia, which has a relatively small population, about a fifth of the residents volunteer their time. Kathryn, 32, is among them. “I was studying psychology and wanted to get practical experience and an understanding of the families I would be working with. I’ve worked with two families since I started 12 months ago,” the OzChild volunteer says. ‘‘You become emotionally involved to an extent, but you have to have boundaries. I have two kids of my own and I think that helps. A lot of families struggle with their kids trying to get them to do stuff, and getting them into routines is really frustrating when they are already

emotional because of their circumstances. ‘‘Everything seems so overwhelming and we can help them to break it down into small bits and put things into place to help them gradually make it better. “It’s great to see them come from a place where they just don’t know what to do, and start to put things back together. It’s a privilege. I have friends involved with other organisations and this is one of the best.’’ While more women volunteer their time, overall men are not far behind. But generally, they are happy to put their hand up to help out at a sports club but they tend to steer clear of welfare organisations such as OzChild. Peninsula resident Paul, 28, is an exception. Like Kathryn, Paul was looking for an organisation where he could put into practice skills he had learned while studying counselling and community services. “I’ve got something to give, so I looked for somewhere I could be of use. I’ve not seen any other guys working in this area, and there are only three guys in my class of 30 looking to work in welfare. But a few of my mates have asked about it [working with OzChild], and I’m hoping they’ll come on board. “Anyone can make a good volunteer; as long as you have a kind heart and willing to give your time. Everyone has something to offer one way

or another. You could be just kicking a football around, or sitting on the beach having a chat. “As a volunteer we see a lot more of the happier side of things. We are there to try to make people smile, and it’s very rewarding. Whereas on the welfare side, they may be coming into a situation that is much more dire. It’s very rewarding.” Since October, Paul has been matched with three teenage boys; two from separate families who needed support through sudden changes in their family circumstance, and a third younger boy who has had a more permanent relationship with his mentor. “A little bit of time can make a big difference in their day,” he says. Volunteers do not require any specific qualifications or experience to join the program. They must be aged 18 or over and prepared to commit to two-four hours each fortnight for a minimum of 12 months, depending on family needs. Ms Jones said the support offered depended on specific needs of the family. This may include providing parenting strategies and emotional support, companionship, mentoring, outings, helping to develop household routines and linking into the wider community and support networks. There is a particular need for Oz Child volunteers in the Hastings, Crib Point and Rosebud areas. To find out more, call 8796 0000.

A ‘Little Archies’ window art exhibition will be held in Main Street and there will be guided history-walks. The festival is a joint effort between Mornington Peninsula Shire and Mornington Chamber of Commerce. “Ticket sales have been going really well,� chamber manager Jeni Doherty said. “James Morrison, upstairs at The Grand, should be amazing, We’re going to give it a real jazz club vibe.� Along with the headline performers, a clutch of talented artists will play at various smaller venues and at key

Event organiser Marty Williams said the Friday night program would feature sets played by his band, The Marty Williams Experiment, with Deb McLeod on cello and the Cardwell Swing Guitars lending a hand. “We will mix up a few tunes that have formed the heart of my solo story over the past few years, like a framework that we’ll hang new ideas from,� Williams said. On the Saturday, Aaron Roberts, Brad Kennedy and The Mojo Pearls will perform. Pete Kaighin will play sax, flute, vibes and double bass on both nights.

The full program can be found at morningtonjazz.com.au. Bookings are required for some events.

Crowd of one witnesses a blinder BY GREIG WHITELAW A DISAPPOINTING crowd of one poured into the David Collings Leisure Centre on Thursday night in expectation of another night of table tennis magic. When the crowd is so small, it almost seems rude not to get to know them personally, so I’d like to all readers of this report to know that the crowd’s name was Sam. Sam, or ‘Sam the Fan’ has been a staunch supporter for many seasons, so much so that consideration was given to having him stuffed and put on display in the players’ lounge before it was realised that this would be detrimental to crowd numbers going forward. The idea was shelved, much to Sam’s relief. But I digress. Sam was privy to one of the best matches the Mornington Peninsula Table Tennis Association has ever hosted with Australia’s leading under-18 player and Mornington product Dillon Cathcart taking on New Zealander Myles Collins. Collins has represented the Kiwis before and it didn’t take Cathcart, who was filling in for his brother Jarryd, long to realise he was in for a fight. With match scores tied at 2-2 after this scribe had finally made a team contribution and defeated the hapless Peter Du Plooy, the crowd swelled to 20 as other players stopped playing or delayed leaving the centre to watch the action unfold. And they weren’t disappointed. Those in attendance were treated to some exquisite shotmaking and amazing rallies that left Sam ‘the Fan’ and other spectators speechless and

me feeling totally inadequate. Collins, who has formerly represented New Zealand in international competition, found himself down 3-1 before regathering his composure and tying up the match 3-3. With Collins leading 11-10 in the deciding seventh game, you could have heard a pin drop. I know this for a fact as I always carry a pin with me in case I ever find myself in these situations and when I dropped it I’m sure I heard it hit the ground. I have an awful feeling that Cathcart may have heard it, because at that very moment he made an uncharacteristic, unforced error to hand victory to the ex-New Zealander and a 3-2 win to Somerville. Frankston chalked up its sixth consecutive victory when, as predicted, they absolutely hammered the underperforming and last-placed Langwarrin, 4-1 on the show court. Frankston got off to a flyer with a comprehensive 3-0 victory in the doubles and it was all downhill from there for the bottom-of-the-ladder Langwarrin duo. Sam Palmer chalked up 4-0 victories against both the outof-form Luke Bronsema and partner Shane O’Connor. Gary Anderson brushed aside O’Connor and was more than competitive against Bronsema before going down valiantly in the seventh. On court three, the Carrum Downs combination of Phil Bolitho and Mark Flavel continued to prove that age is no barrier to success when they came away with a 4-1 win against Mt Martha. The win keeps alive their hopes of winning back-to-back premierships.

Narrow win for Breakers

Juniors line up for Vic squad

three majors, all coming late in the day. The Pirates are set to endure more pain with midfielders Wade Sansom and Tom Stainforth both expected to have lengthy stints on the sidelines. The Old Boys will be desperate to get back on the winners list when they host Banyule this Saturday at the Peninsula School. In division 3, South Mornington slumped to its sixth straight loss, going down to Kew by 60 points.

THE strength of the Mornington Peninsula Cricket Association has been highlighted by four players being selected in the initial under-15 Victorian squad. Mt Eliza top-order batsman Tom Ewing and young paceman Lachlan Higgins headline the inclusions in the 53-member squad. Peninsula Old Boys’ all-rounder James Labrooy and Langwarrin fast bowler Andrew Smith have also been included. South-cast country regional cricket manager Jason Mathers said the quartet deserved their selection after outstanding performances with the South East Country Sharks. ‘‘To have four players from one league is pretty good,’’ Mathers said. ‘‘Tom was the leading performer with the under-14 Sharks last year and Lachie was leading with the ball.’’ The quartet will push their claim for a berth in the final state team when they train in the Bill Lawry Indoor Centre on Thursday, July 11.

MORNINGTON Breakers stayed in touch with the Big V division 2 top two with an 86-81 victory over Maccabi Warriors at Bialik Stadium on Sunday. The Breakers won each of the opening three quarters of the clash against the Warriors before a strong fightback from the home team gave the scoreline some respectability. Breakers ace David Smith was the standout player on the court with 26 points and 15 rebounds, while Andrew Lowe was also a force on the boards. Western Port Steelers were beaten 74-68 by Keysborough at Springers Leisure Centre on Sunday. The Steelers began the match brightly but didn’t have enough support for Alistair Granger (27 points) and Kevin Benn (20 points). In the division 2 women, the Steelers were beaten 47-34 by an impressive Warrnambool outfit at Warrnambool. Lauren Cooper was the standout for the visitors with 10 points and eight rebounds. In the Youth League 2 men, Mornington Breakers defeated Southern Peninsula Sharks 73-52 . Anthony Pegg (14 points, seven rebounds) was best for the Breakers. Jack Duff (18 points) was a strong performer for Southern Peninsula.

Injury-riddled Peninsula hammered again PENINSULA Old Boys have suffered their third successive smashing, going down to Old Ivanhoe by 123 points in their Premier C VAFA match at Chelsworth Park on Saturday. The Pirates have been cruelled by injury this season with only seven players from last year’s grand final side taking the field. Peninsula never appeared to be in the contest, with Old Ivanhoe blowing out its lead at every change and former Melbourne and Carlton defender

Upstarts Peninsula pull off a surprise BY BRAD McGRATH THE Peninsula League has thrown country football on its head by eclipsing the Ovens and Murray Football League by 45 points in their interleague clash at Visy Park on Saturday. The Sharks went into the clash against the traditional VCFL powers as outsiders mainly because of the interleague split of the three leagues under the MPNFL banner. But Stephen Ryan’s outfit played with passion and commitment to give themselves the chance to play for the No. 1 ranking against the Geelong Football League next year. ‘‘I was a bit surprised by the margin, but we played four quarters,’’ Ryan said. ‘‘We knew that we picked a team that was pretty quick, especially on a big ground, and it worked out pretty well for us. ‘‘The blokes that we picked we knew that they wanted to play interleague footy and that makes a difference and we had 22 blokes who wanted to be playing.’’ Both teams traded blows early as the Sharks’ star-studded midfield, which contained players such as Shane McDonald, Brayden Irving and Ricky Ferraro, attempted to get a grip on their equally talented O and M counterparts. In the second term the Sharks booted 5.2 to 1.4 to bust the game open and with the O and M’s star ruckman Luke Wells unable to come back onto the field the Peninsula team was leading by 23 points at the long change and could smell blood. O and M coach Matt Pendergast, who was one

of their best players, urged his troops to lift and they burst out of the blocks in the third term with successive goals to trim the margin to 10 points. But goals to Fia Too Too and Jamie Messina steadied the Sharks and they extended the margin to five goals by the final change. Ryan asked his players for one more effort, knowing the O and M would come hard in the final term. He asked Kallum Searle to continue the outstanding job he was doing on O and M spearhead Adam Prior. Tim Mavric was tasked with providing the drive off half-back that was a feature of the match. It resulted in arguably a best-afield performance. Ryan asked the midfield to win the ball in the clinches and restrict their opponents. Searle completed his job to hold Prior, a former Sydney Swans rookie, goalless while the run of Mavric continued to cut the O and M to shreds. The midfield did their duty as the Sharks booted 3.5 to 1.2 in the final term to send the O and M back to the drawing board. ‘‘I said to Kallum before the game that this bloke [Prior] is probably the best goal-kicker in the Ovens and Murray besides Fev and if you can keep it under five goals it would be a great effort,’’ Ryan said. ‘‘Shane McDonald was good, Messina was good, Irving was good and Tim Mavric on the back flank was very good as well. ‘‘They linked up very well and shepherded well, which you don’t see much in interleague.’’ While it was well documented the O and M was missing players like Brendan Fevola and

Big stage: Peninsula League star Shane McDonald boots the ball forward in their victory over the Ovens and Murray Football League on Saturday. Picture: Rob Carew Dean Polo, several Peninsula League stars were also withdrawals through injury. Byron and Anthony Barry, Jackson Calder and Ash Eames were all absent. ‘‘It is a great effort from us mainly because they have split our team into three teams and a lot of people probably wouldn’t have given us a chance of winning

Nepean League demonstrates its class THE Nepean League has made a strong statement in its interleague match with a resounding 33-point victory over Heathcote & Districts at Queen Elizabeth Oval, Bendigo, on Saturday. An undermanned Nepean, coached by Gavin Artico and captained by Rhett Sutton, showed it is worthy of a much higher ranking than No. 18 in country Victoria. Heathcote showed it had done its homework in the opening term, clogging the play up and restricting the visitors’ ability to run. The home team booted the first four goals before the Nepean League responded, Hastings pair Tony Mirrabella and Colin McVeigh carrying over their strong club form. ‘‘They [Heathcote] had done a bit of research and been down to see how we play,’’ Artico said. ‘‘They congested the game up as much as they could to try and stop our run. ‘‘They focused on making a really ugly scrappy contest. ‘‘In the second term we were able to crack

it open a bit and get some run through the corridor. We played some really good footy in the second quarter which really set us up for the rest of the game.’’ Nepean was able to create a 25-point halftime buffer with some impressive midfield work coming from Frankston Bomber Jason Bedford. Nepean was able to continue to produce goals despite losing Mirrabella late in the second term with knock to the eye which ended his day. After the main change Nepean was able to hold Heathcote at arm’s length extending their lead out to as much as 44 points. ‘‘We didn’t go in with the junior mentality of let’s pick the best couple of players from each club,’’ Artico said. ‘‘We picked players based on their position as well as form, we wanted to play the guys where they would normally line up in club footy.’’ Bedford was named best on ground but was well supported with Hasting on-baller Taylor Stratton and Somerville midfielder Justin Farrelly, who were both influential.

The final term was played at a slightly subdued pace with Nepean firmly in control of the match, Heathcote sneaking some late goals to bring the final margin back to 33. This is Artico’s second year at the helm of the Nepean interleague team, this year taking a largely inexperienced line-up. Among the unavailable players for Nepean were in-form Pearcedale forward Pat Heijden and Sorrento gun Leigh Treeby. ‘‘We lost a few blokes we would have liked to have had,’’ Artico said. ‘‘A lot of guys pulled out with injury and we had some with other commitments. ‘‘We took a side up that really embraced the whole thing.’’ Among the first-time players was Sorrento young gun Leigh Poholke, Crib Point’s Zak Dekleuver and Dromana veteran Paul Minchington. ‘‘About 70 per cent of our side had never played interleague before,’’ Artico said. ‘‘A lot of players never get the chance to play finals so for some this [interleague] is the pinnacle of their careers.’’ — Morgan Cole

today because of that happening,’’ Ryan said. ‘‘It just goes to show that blokes who would have never got the opportunity to play have stepped up and played well.’’ For more pictures visit frankstonweekly .com.au.
