FOOTBALL THE WINNER What a great weekend of amateur football we just witnessed with the undoubted highlight being the first win of Chadstone since Round 17 2008 when they played under the moniker of Syndal Tally Ho. Sixty-nine matches, 1828 days without a win would test any clubs patience but if you had been following the clubs progress this year there were signs they were closing in on a win. The vibes would have been positive going into the game as their last win was also against Mt Lilydale. The VAFA community has got behind Chadstone’s win with our twitter and Facebook sites reaching record numbers of ‘Likes’ and ‘retweets’ of the news. Instantly the club and coach Dave Cafarella achieved celebrity status as he he gave media interviews for most of the week. Starting on Sunday morning with Tom Brain’s Ammo hour on Southern FM. Chadstone earlier this season were entered in the Wild Turkey promotion with $10,000 in prizes and a further $10k up for grabs. This led to Triple M’s Danny Frawley and James Brayshaw to take training one evening and they were on his coat tails on Monday afternoon with an interview on The Rush Hour. You can listen to that interview on our website at www.vafa.com. au. Finally David finished up with the 96.5 INRFM VAFA Footy panel this morning. Whilst they were in front by five goals at three quarter time, there would have been a few nervous players as the coach gave his final address. More nervous were the players when they sang the club theme song as barely a handful had played in a winning Chadstone team. Well done to them and hopefully you can get another and give you something to build on for 2013. The other club to win their first game was Power

House in Division 3. They had a draw earlier in the season but with that win they have a chance to stave off relegation. All of a sudden a season that was seen as one of the clubs worst in history can have a silver lining. They will need at least one more win in the final two matches, but how quickly things can turn around. The other highlight was at the Kew ground where Ivanhoe’s twenty year old full forward sensation Ash Close became the first player to kick the ton this year. Ash has progressed from the Ivanhoe Under 19 team and developed into the leading full forward in the VAFA. It wasn’t enough to stop Kew from defeating Ivanhoe although the loss won’t affect their double chance prospects with two games to go. The Club XVIII finals commenced last Sunday with three qualifying finals in Section 1. There is no doubt there were some anxious moments in the first two games as no one was guaranteed the double chance. However the top three teams all had convincing wins and the beneficiary of the new format has allowed fourth placed Prahran Assumption to progress to the Preliminary finals this Sunday. In Section 2 Hawthorn’s victory takes them straight into the Grand Final whilst Therry and Richmond Cardinals do battle in the Preliminary Final. The action in all sections is hotting up with only two matches left in the Division and Junior sections and three in the Premier sections. The highlight match in Premier is Old Carey hosting a revitalised Old Scotch. These clubs have been engaged in a battle for the fourth spot for the past two months. A win to the Cardinals will see them secure their place in the finals.

WEEK OF REVELATIONS Every week when casting an eye over the upcoming fixtures there is a certain trepidation of only selecting the form sides. In amateur footy there are always upsets and its often just a matter of picking which one it will be. Last week despite tipping the favourites in all games, the planets were aligning for an upset and it was just a matter of guessing which game it would be. Initial thoughts were that the upset would come via a win for Old Trinity or Old Carey. Trinity threatened Old Scotch but they couldn’t hold on and Carey never got going as Collegians played their best footy in recent weeks. Many were surprised to see it Uni Blues beating Old Xaverians when checking the live scores app and were maintaining their lead as the day progressed. Astute readers will note that the past two weeks I have suggested Old Xavs were not far away from having the loss they had to have but we shouldn’t take anything away from Blues who beat Old Xavs for the fist time in a couple of seasons. At University Oval Uni Blues trailed Old Xaverians at quarter time but in a low scoring match had edged ahead by three points at the main break. A strong third term where they kicked four goals to one gave the Blues a lead and the hope they needed going into the last. Peter Summers kicked three goals and Marshall Rippon and Charles Shaw were great for the Blues. Xavs lost top spot but have three weeks to build their form before finals. University Blues are in control of their own fate. The collective joy at the final siren was only marginally louder than the sigh of relief in securing a valuable four points. Collegians almost have their full squad back available and more importantly are back to some of their intimidating best as the brushed aside the threat of Old Carey at home. The ball 2

spent large periods of the game in the Collegians forward half as Carey without Matt Laidlaw fell down badly across half forward. Carey led at quarter time but Collegians kicked 10 goals to four after that to win by 37 points. Cam Lee was best on ground for slick work across half forward and the centre line, contributing two goals as well. A close second was Nick Ries with four majors whilst Charlie Holst rounded out the votes repelling every Carey attack across halfback. Last time St Bedes / Mentone Tigers met Caulfield Grammarians the margin was reduced late by Caulfield side who charged home at Brindisi Street. This time the margin was the same but manor in which it was achieved was quite different. Caulfield led by 17 at the long break thanks to the good play of Dean Scheetz and Tom O’Sullivan in the middle. The third quarter was a reverse – on the scoreboard at least – of what happened in the second and the Tigers led by five points going into the last. The Tigers had to hold on against a desperate Caulfield side, Darcy Holden found space for a couple of goals and Simon Richards was in an under everything. Caulfield had three goal contributions from Tom Quinn and Will Edwards there is still reason to believe they will get a win in 2012. Last week it was about confirming that Old Scotch are back and I was almost made to eat my own words thanks to a desperate Old Trinity who came from 35 points down at quarter time to just five points down at the final change at Camberwell. Beware of the relegation threatened side as Old Trinity kept coming with Tim Walsh leading the goal kickers with four in the absence of Andrew Ramsden who did his hammy during the game. At the other end Mar Passador had no TODAY SELECTIONS IN BOLD Old Carey v Old Scotch Old Trinity v University Blues Old Xaverians v Caulfield Gramm St Bedes/Mentone Tigers v De La Salle St Bernards v Collegians

second-up issues as he slotted five following his four the previous week. Unfortunately for Trinity a goalless first quarter and catch up football is sometimes just too hard to keep going with all day. Old Scotch secured fourth spot back and Old Trinity are two games off safety with three to play. De La Salle were expected to come out firing after an insipid performance a week prior and that didn’t augur well for St Bernards. The Snowdogs have run out of steam in recent weeks but have played well enough at times this year to suggest it won’t be a short-lived return to Premier competition. Having secured safety in the division St Bernards have exposed more of their younger players to senior football in preparation for next year. De La Salle have used a large number of players as well this year but anytime you have 10 goal kickers six of the them kicking multiples then you are likely to win. Brett Eddy also second-up kicked five (four in the last

quarter) as a five goal three quarter time lead was extended to 83 at the final bell. Messrs.’ Vickers and Jarvis led for De La whilst Josh Madden was best for the Bernies. This week will reveal all if two results on Bulleen road go the way of the visiting teams. If Old Scotch defeat Old Carey and Uni Blues defeat Old Trinity then the season’s key placing will be known. However that would make the last two rounds insignificant so we can’t have that. For the sake of the competition the Bulleen Road home sides will both win. Old Xaverians won’t drop two in a row on their visit to Caulfield, St Bedes / Mentone Tigers will push De La and might hold on to win and Collegians will produce against St Bernards as they fine tune their campaign.

WINDING DOWN, WINDING UP As relegation seems all but certain for Oakleigh who will join Old Ivanhoe in Premier C next year, how do these teams make the best use of the remaining three games? Blood some youth, experiment with their list and structures, or change nothing and pursue remaining pride and points? Similarly AJAX, Werribee and (probably) Old Haileybury are now in that static Bermuda Triangle of nothingness until season’s end, so how best do they gain some positives? Meanwhile the upper echelon are ramping up their campaigns; analysing their opponents and fine tuning strategy as players trickle back from injury and travel, bolstering depth and on-field dynamics in their quest for finals contention and premiership glory. With amazing accuracy given the slogging, muddy conditions last week, AJAX kicked 16.1 to defeat arch rivals Werribee by 45 points at Gary Smorgon oval. But as Bernie Sheehy pointed out each team fielded just nine of their respective 2011 grand final sides, Werribee the hardest-hit with significant preseason losses – one of whom (Cam Lee) was busy getting best-on ground honours next door at Harry Trott. Jacka David Fayman (6.1) was back to his creative best despite the solitary blemish and ruckman Jarrod White returned with immediate impact after a lengthy absence. Matt Dean was best for the Tigers, along with exciting young ruckman Bol Kolang. Both sides should give Premier B a better shake in 2013 if they can unearth (and hang onto) a few more rising stars.

dominant return to the midfield for Skob, although a few of his team mates (and coach Harford) were suffering bad cases of man ‘flu. Phil Edgar was literally filthy in the conditions kicking five majors, Jack Weber and Sam Bishop shut down the Krushers who battled valiantly in the gloomy shadow of relegation; James Chapple and Chris Lamb their best. After a tardy start against Old Haileybury at South Road the ‘Tonners found their rhythm in a brilliant show of contested footy to stamp their claim on the match. Jack Beaton came in to replace the ill Tom Skewes and dominated the ruck, Brock Rawlinson added intensity around the ball and Dan Anthony booted five goals, several from strong pack marks at full forward. The Bloods’ Travis Ridgeway (7) was outstanding, Brighton struggled to contain him as the Magentas kicked the last four in junk time, but ran out 19-point victors nonetheless. Old Melburnians continued their improved form with a five-goal win over Old Ivanhoe at Pine Lodge, despite the better-performed Hoe’s efforts. Rhy Gieschen and Andrew Paine put in solid games for the home side, but were no match for the bullocking Beaumont brothers (James and Jeremy), while Beck and Bennett kicked four goals apiece. OMs sit in fourth place challenging better-percentaged Beaumaris for third yet cross swords with Old Brighton this week just one game behind them in fifth. Stalwart Shark defender Mark ‘Dougie’ Ensor was recalled to the senior lineup as they took on ladder-leaders Uni Blacks at Banksia Reserve. Dougie’s been having a lark in the two’s forward line this year, but his side struggled against the TODAY SELECTIONS IN BOLD AJAX v Old Ivanhoe

Old Ivanhoe could possibly sneak this one at Gary Smorgon oval despite the seven goal loss to AJAX in round nine, however the Jackas looked strong and creative at home last week and should salute.

NODDERS CLAIM FOURTH SPOT With three rounds of the home and away season remaining in Premier C, we’re set for a great run in to finals. Marcellin’s stunning return to form against the Vultures gives those two sides the inside running for the double chance; while Fitzroy and Mazenod’s wins resulted in the Nodders overtaking Old Camberwell in fourth position. PEGS and Banyule are still in the mix and it promises to be an intriguing final couple of rounds before finals. PEGS headed down to Boss James, for a date with the Rovers and kept themselves in finals calculations with a solid win. An amazing fifteen goals went through in the first term, with twelve of them coming off PEGS’ boots. Hampton gradually got things back on their terms and managed to take the honours in the second quarter to give themselves a sniff. But it was again PEGS who were quick out of the blocks when play resumed, putting the result beyond doubt in the third, before the Rovers got a few back towards the end, nearly pushing their score past triple figures for the first time in 2012. Chris Goullet has been in sensational form recently and was one of seven multiple goalscorers for the visitors with three. Jones and Towner were solid as always and Daniel Flaherty kicked five goals. From Hampton’s perspective, Nathan Smith was a welcome inclusion and Fletcher and Donald were busy. The Ashes had Mazenod at home and, with Fitzroy and Old Camberwell locking horns elsewhere, a win was all the Nodders needed to take fourth spot. And that was how Adrian Connolly’s men played it, winning every quarter to run out easy victors. Nick Thomas, Tim Bourbon and the Chamberlains were important players for the Nodders, who now hold the upper 6

hand in the race for fourth spot. Alex Armstrong played his best game of the year for the Blues and big Joe Cosgriff was back to his early season form. Out at the barnyard, the Wellers and Fitzroy were fighting for third spot, with the loser dropping to fifth, if, as expected Mazenod was able to beat Monash. Conditions suited the mudlarks and the Roys started like it meant more to them, banging through seven straight to a single point from the home side in the first quarter. Fitzroy’s wayward kicking has been a source of consternation at times this season for Pickers, but another two without a blemish, made it 9.0, while the Wellers got themselves back into the game, kicking five for the quarter. That’s as close as it would get though, with the Roys piling on another five goals in the third to seal the win. Only three players managed to register a sausage for the Wellers, with Warren Carlyle contributing three. Jack Parkinson was outstanding for the Roys and Matthew Kyroussis kicked four. Marcellin had an excellent return to form against the competition’s pace-setters, with a fighting 21 point win against Parkdale. The Eagles started strongly in front of their home supporters, but it was a seesawing game in the first half, with the Vultures gaining control and taking the lead into the half time break. When the teams came out for the second half, Marcellin played like a team that was ready to fight for its position in the top two, taking the lead back and finally running away TODAY SELECTIONS IN BOLD Fitzroy v Monash Blues Mazenod v Banyule PEGS v Old Camberwell Parkdale Vultures v Hampton Rovers Rupertswood v Marcellin

with the game to register a crucial win. Jarrod Carlson was at his brilliant best for the Eagles and received good support from Anthony Beaini and Ash Viney. For the Vultures, Tim Boland and Mitch Grant were sensational. In a hard fought contest out at the cave, Banyule kept themselves in the hunt, with a tough win over Rupertswood. The momentum was with the visitors, after a six goal to one second quarter saw them head into the rooms with a narrow lead at halftime. It was the Bears who responded, with a solid performance in the premiership quarter providing the impetus for the win. Ryan Hay played a phenomenal game and Jake Rice was important in the win for Banyule, who need something special from here to qualify for the four, but can’t be counted out. Brent Swallow was a clear BOG for Rupo.

THE AMATEUR FOOTBALLER 2012

This week, we have Mazenod hosting Banyule, in a crucial game for both sides. The Nodders will be fired up after finally cracking the four and I think they’ll take the points. Hampton heads to Parkdale and the Vultures will bounce back in convincing fashion. PEGS hosts Old Camberwell and I’ll stick with the home side in this important clash. The Eagles travel to Rupertswood and with every win critical to keep their top two spot, they’ll do enough. And Fitzroy will take the honours at home against Monash, to keep the pressure on the teams above them.

CHADSTONE SECURE FIRST WIN IN FOUR YEARS Chadstone football club won their first game in 69 games of football when they defeated Mt Lilydale on the weekend. The win came 1828 days after their last win which was under the different name of Syndal Tally-Ho on August 9th in Round 17 2008. They went past the four year mark without a win on Thursday but the feeling was a positive one heading to the clash with 9th placed Mt Lilydale. President Steve Allsopp was so anxious in the fourth quarter that he had to walk out of the ground and started to watch the game through the trees so that nerves didn’t get the better of him. Finally getting the courage to return to the game with enough time left to celebrate the final moments as the clock wound down

to a famous victory. The cub was due to have its pre-planned cocktail party fundraiser that evening which had slow-ish ticket sales in the lead up. The result that afternoon saw a mad rush for tickets to the party that evening with numbers for the night doubling from what was pre-sold. The party continued long into the night with the club inspired by their first win since the name change to Chadstone Football Club the feeling is that there will be many more in the future. We secured this photo thanks to club photographer Victor Wong although we notice that the recent tradition of having all those who played in their first win stand in the middle was not followed.

LOCKED IN AT TRIBUNAL This was the case for Mazenod’s player advocate John Mann at last week’s tribunal hearing at the VAFA’s offices at Sportscover Arena. John was happy with the outcome of the tribunal results and decided to get on the phone to tell other members at the club about the result before driving off from his park in the grounds of Sportscover Arena. It turns out that John must have been caught up in conversation 8

for quite some time and after completing his calls was the last to leave the ground. The only problem was that the VAFA steward had locked the electronic gates and John was stuck inside the ground with no way to drive out. A few phone calls saw him finally get on to VAFA General Manager of Umpiring Brian Goodman who assisted John in his exit from the ground at about 10pm. THE AMATEUR FOOTBALLER 2012


CELEBRATING A CENTURION Ash Close kicked the required four goals on the weekend to bring up his century of goals for the season. A huge effort to do so in just 16 games of footy, and with 2 rounds left he has a chance to go past Ben Spencer’s 107 for St Francis Xavier last year. A group of 4050 supporters of the Moose had turned up for the away fixture with Kew and they were full of voice hoping that Ash could secure the ton this week. Coach of Ivanhoe had issued strict instructions to the supporter group not to run on to the ground to celebrate with the Moose if the century was achieved and we can report that all followed these instructions. Unfortunately Ivanhoe couldn’t double the celebrations on the day as they fell two goals short of Kew. The win for Kew keeps them in fourth spot whilst Ivanhoe look almost certain to finish second despite the loss. PRELIMINARY FINAL WEEKEND This weekend is the first time we will have duel preliminary finals to determine the two grand finalists in Club XVIII (1) as this section trialled a final six for this year’s finals series. The results from last weekend’s finals all went according to the finals seedings with the team that finished fourth (Prahran Assumption) getting a double chance as the highest placed Game

POWER HOUSE CELEBRATE IN STYLE In a week where we celebrate the first win in a long time for Chadstone it would be remiss of us not to acknowledge the first win of the season for Power House as well. Last Saturday was Les Gordon tribute day. The Power House Football Club past and present faithful turned up in huge numbers on Saturday to celebrate the life of Life Member, Club Legend and VAFA Legend Les Gordon who died earlier this year after a long battle with cancer. Les’s wife Elgin, and his two grandsons Michael and Scott represented the family at the luncheon which was attended by many of Les’s teammates, past players, past Presidents, Life Members and Premiership heroes. Les is the games record holder for the Power House Football Club; he played 357 games in a playing career that spanned 1952 – 1971. Les is a 4-time Seniors Best and Fairest winner (1960, 1961, 1962 and 1964) and was

10

Senior Captain in 1962, 1963, 1964 and 1971. He was Senior Coach for 6 seasons. He was a member of the 1959 Invincibles Premiership Team and was Senior Playing Captain-Coach of the 1971 Premiership Team and in 2011, Les was elevated to Legend status of the Power House Football Club. In addition to the memorial lunch, the Power House Football Club had another agenda on the day – to win their first game this season and try to stave off relegation. The boys ran away with a 41 point win to sing their famous club song for the first time in 2012. An excellent day was had by all and the boys were heard celebrating well into the night!

One of Old Westbourne’s favourite sons, Adrian Board, was an inaugural member of the club in 1991 and is now the clubs longest serving player. A stylish, tough and versatile player Adrian was a member of the clubs 2004 Reserves Premiership side. Adrian is also the longest serving Treasurer of the club and valued life member. The Board name is synonymous at Old Westbourne and Adrian has rarely missed training, is an excellent clubman who has given his all to the football club and has constantly gone above and beyond. A consummate professional around the club, he has been an inspiration to all at the Warriors both on and off the field, and we look forward to many more years on the famous number 15 running around.

Old Geelong’s Tim Bayles is a dual Best and Fairest winner for the Reserves and had also played in a couple of premierships for the OGS. This season he has dominated in the forward line for their Clubbies, kicking 74 goals to date and would love to add another premiership to his collection.

MHSOB’s Ryan Czwarno started at the club in 2003, and has become one of the club’s most respected and experienced players. His likeness to Wendell from the Simpsons contrasts with his relentless, tough playing style. Ryan’s ability to get first hands on the ball or to lay the first tackle from clearances has made him an asset to both Senior and Reserve sides over the years. Ryan currently captains the Reserves and hopes to lead them in 2012 towards their first finals berth in some years.

Ivanhoe’s favourite son, Matthew Franich, brings up the ton and has been a long time coming as Matthew has had several serious knee injuries, blood clots, an overseas sojourn and the lure of golf all getting in the way of this staunch defender reaching this milestone.

Richmond Central Shannon Collins has been a valuable member of the reserves side through several finals campaigns. Shannon loves nothing more than running around the forward half and jagging a couple of goals. Off the field he has served on the committee and is at the centre of many a function. His developing career as a graphic designer has also served the club well -most recently involving an unflattering and unsettling - and therefore hilarious picture of the President.

MHSOB’s Tom Rendell joined the club in the Under 19’s in 2007 and has become part of the furniture. The highly skilled midfielder now holds a spot in the Seniors where he regularly marks over and out-positions more sizable opponents. Tom brings plenty of personality to the club and is always good for an off-field laugh. Swinburne University’s Benjamin Fleisneri is a neat and organized left footer and a gentleman on and off the field. His quite demeanor plays second fiddle to his towering and deadly accurate kicking. Benjamin’s poise on the field has a been a source of inspiration to all his team mates as he often kicks the miracle goal. Beaumaris’ Michael DeFontenay joined the club as a junior and progressed through the age groups to play 100 VAFA games and experience two VAFA premierships . His first premiership was in 2008 in the U19’s and his second in the 2010 senior C Grade team. Michael is a very courageous player and was rewarded with the best defensive player award in 2010. MHSOB’s Adam Ashton joined the club in the under 19’s in 2009, and has quickly becoming a key part of the club’s ruck division. Although he is the current CoCaptain of the Under 19’s, Adam has played a number of Senior games this year, where he has stepped up to the challenge of rucking against bigger bodies. Adam is also making a mark at the club as a talented off-field entertainer. South Melbourne District’s Kieran Jones should be capable of speaking multiple languages by now just looking at his travel map in the past 4 years. In between these character building trips, Kieran has managed to squeeze out 50 quality games, debuting in the seniors against Peninsula in 2010. Aquinas’ Nick Gordon , Reece Greig and Luke Brouwer Kew’s Alistair Youssef Oakleigh’s Robbie Holden first senior game was in 2005 against St John’s. MHSOB’s Liam Ferris originally joined the club in 2010 from a soccer background. Over the last 50 games he has greatly developed his skills not only as a player but as a leader. Liam is currently the co-captain of our under 19s and this year has played games in our senior side, which attests to how he has developed over the last 3 years. MHSOB’s Lachlan George started at the club in the under 19s in 2010. During his time in the under 19s he’s played a number of roles primarily as a leading full forward. Over the last 2 years Lachlan has worked extremely hard on both his skills and fitness and this year he has cemented a spot in the senior squad, which is a great testament to his willingness to work hard and absorb from the senior players around him. Fitzroy’s Vice Captain of the U19’s Dylan Patcas joined the club in 2010 from the Fitzroy Juniors and played in the U19 North (1) premiership team that evaluated the team to U19 Premier. St John’s Rhys Dyker arrived at the club in 2010 and he immediately made an impact with his genuine leg speed and since made his name as an electrifying rebounding defender. He was best and fairest in his first year at the club which coincided with the club being promoted from Division 3 to Division 2. Rhys was also a member of the 2011 Division 2 premiership team. North Brunswick’s Andrew Cooper is now an established player in the seniors and is a solid centre half back with a liking for a goal. Richmond Central Daniel Ryding arrived at the club in 2009 and has improved continuously through sheer hard work. The reward has been senior selection this season and sentimental favouritism for the reserves Best and Fairest.

DIVISION 1

DOWN, BUT DEFINITELY NOT OUT It always saddens me a little when it is confirmed that a club has been relegated. In those immediate awful moments, it can seem like years of grinding and grafting and striving to climb the competitive rungs of the Ammos divisional ladders have been laid to waste in one fell swoop. Unfortunately, the dreaded axe fell on St John’s Old Collegians last week when they ventured out west to the Fearon Reserve and failed to contain a spirited last quarter fight-back from Williamstown. Believe me, I have experienced the lows of dwelling in the cellar in a football sense, of course but I feel that the Jocs are uniquely positioned to take plenty of positives out of their year in Division 1. After consecutive grand final appearances, the highlight of which was the famous victory over Glen Eira in 2011, St John’s endured a preseason marked by the retirements and relocation of numerous experienced cattle. As a result Matt Jones, in his fourth year as senior coach, had little choice but to place his faith in a young and inexperienced playing group. There has been only one win to date, but the courage and application shown by this hardy group from Dandenong particularly since midseason would indicate that they will be extremely competitive in Division 2 next year. In fact, in that win over Ormond in round 4, twelve of the Jocs were aged under 21! According to assistant coach Dylan Cousins, some of the stand-outs this year have been midfielders Liam Mara, Jarrod Gaget, Keith Ash and defender Cam Christianson. He reserved a special mention for Josh Green, a 17 year old in his first season of senior footy. It is with a heavy heart that we say good-bye to St John’s, but I have a feeling it will not be farewell for long. Williamstown’s final-term heroics against the 14

Jocs ensured that will live to fight another day, or this week in fact. At three quarter time, it looked like the CYs would be joining Jocs in the drop (and they may yet), but six goals to nil in the last enabled the home team to record a creditable come from behind 14 point win. In the end, it was potent forwards Josh Vanderloo (8) and Steve Barlow (4) who were the difference, booting twelve of Willy’s fifteen goals. It’s the close ones that count and don’t Old Mentonians know that only too well after being subjected to the pain of a third defeat by seven points or less. This time, Old Geelong’s three point triumph drove the stake into the heart of the Panthers’ finals aspirations. The heavy conditions meant goals were at a premium on a miserable day at Keysborough, and when the Panthers hit the front with ten minutes remaining, their season was still alive. But the Hoops managed to winkle out a final major to record a tough three point win. In what was a battle of defences, it was no surprise that the Panthers’ best were backmen Rowan Ball, Zach Nelson and Mike MyersSynders. Oggers’ best were Mike Rockefeller, Angus Macdonald and Henry Johnstone. Peninsula’s percentage of 219 proves that they have rarely been troubled by the bottom teams, and last week was no exception: the Pirates pounded the Saints by 71 points. However, North Old Boys/ St Pat’s had a tougher time of it. In an entertaining shootout, they called upon all their reserves of experience to eke out a one goal win TODAY SELECTIONS IN BOLD MHSOB v Ormond North Old Boys/St Pats v St Johns Peninsula v Old Mentonians Whitefriars v Old Geelong Williamstown CYMS v Glen Eira

over MHSOB. Whitefriars had an easier time of it at Gunn Reserve, turning a four goal half-time lead into a convincing 40-point win. Preview: Although the final four is set, the penultimate round offers up plenty of interest, particularly in the lower reaches of the ladder. Whilst top teams NOBs and Peninsula should have no problem beating their lesser-ranked opponents St John’s and Old Mentonians respectively, the Whitefriars-Old Geelong clash at Friar Park showcases a first semi-final dress rehearsal.

bragging rights. As all those “L’s” indicate, neither team has been on fire in the last month, but the Unicorns’ form has probably been a little better, particularly at the high school. To the victor will go the spoils of Division 1 survival: Williamstown and Glen Eira meet at the Fearon in a game with massive ramifications - the loser almost certainly will accompany St Johns into Divvy 2 next year. Both teams have had hugely disappointing seasons, and it is with my head and my heart that I tip the CYs to take a huge step toward survival. But regardless of the result, like St John’s, I would expect that the vanquished will quickly rebound.

DIVISION 2

Rich Hummerston

TOP 4 ALL SET? With only two rounds remaining until the finals campaign begins for the top four sides in Division 2, it is fair to say that the current top four sides have certainly cemented their spot in the finals leaving the other six sides to reel over the missed opportunities and what could have been in season 2012. The bottom six will hope to gain some confidence with victories in their last two matches, and will also start to look forward and prepare for season 2013. Last weekend’s results saw a few close and surprise encounters in the matches across the section with tenth placed La Trobe University gaining some confidence in their last few games with a victory over South Melbourne Districts by seven points with Stuart Patten and Jack McMeel kicking five and four a piece, whilst Adam Curwood put in another strong performance for the Uni.

Therry Penola travelled out to Assumption College to take on third placed Prahran Assumption and weren’t disappointing as they came to play, and to only be beaten by 15 points is a credit to them. John Robbins was best for Prahran Assumption, whilst Andrew Doyle for the Lions. In the match of the round ladders leaders Bulleen Templestowe and Old Eltham Collegians battled it out for bragging rights. The turtles lost there round eight encounter by 44 points, but significantly showed how they had improved only losing by 25 points this round and could possibly play the Ants in the second semi final in a few weeks time to get redemption.

An inaccurate St Mary’s Salesian (5.16) who no doubt ably looking forward to the seasons end were disappointing as they suffered a major defeat against Old Paradians by 11 goals on their home turf. Stefan Gutts and Henry Wong were the highlight for the Saints, whilst Daniel Giddings and David Boundy for the Paradians had a field day in front of the sticks kicking four and three respectively as they continued their outstanding goal kicking form in season 2012. Ninth placed Emmaus St Leo’s put in a great contest and despite the loss against Monash Gryphons by 16 points there were some positive signs with Nic Robin and Ronan Stafford putting in great performances in a losing side. This week there will be a few interesting games. Emmaus St Leos and St Mary’s Salesian go into

battle as a possible relegation match, and I believe Saints will pull through with the goods on the day. Fourth placed Old Paradians take on ladder leaders Bulleen Templestowe who will be too strong for the Paradians at Garvey Oval, likewise in the Therry Penola and Old Eltham match I don’t see Therry matching Old Eltham’s strong outfit. Prahran Assumption will be too strong for La Trobe University, who despite getting the four points last week haven’t had the best of seasons and finally the Gryphs will be too good for the Districts.

SAM’S TOWN - 1 Have you people ever loved somebody? Sometimes it comes very quickly, very easily, as easy as the way Moose Close puts his two fingers on top of his head after booting ten. Sometimes it disappears just as quick. You wake up one morning, the butterflies stop fluttering, but you want it back and you want to fight for it, you want to breathe that fire again. So you call for it, you call out. It seems that at Elsternwick, the things they are fighting for more than anything are hair follicles. In 2004 David Grace saw the writing on the wall and shaved his head. Some six years later Skull Christian followed the great man’s lead. On Saturday these great skulls combined (although the latter was dominating the two’s) to keep the wickers finals dream alive and helping them to retain the Tom Brain Challenge Cup, with an emphatic 46 point victory over Albert Park. With one deep breath, and one big step, Elsternwick now move a little bit closer, they move a little bit closer (to the finals). It seems they have finally caught their stride, flew and flied. If destiny’s kind, well they’ve got the rest on their mind. It’s hard to say what Ivanhoe love this week. Certainly Ash Close’s performance this year, and again on the weekend his efforts would be up there. The ’big man’ booted his 100th on Saturday, albeit in a losing side. Oh, have you ever seen the lights? That was the question being asked by the Hoers at full time, after they watched one of Kew’s more vintage performances. It was a muddy affair and it was often hard to tell the two teams apart – the game resembling more of the Egyptian version of female jelly wrestling at times, but the victory puts the Bears into fourth spot on the ladder. The feeling certainly has not disappeared out at Yarra Valley. The visitors in St. Francis were brave early, but could not match the might of the Bushies, despite the 100 game milestone of club legends Anthony Pryor and Jarrod Leaworthy not 20

a bad effort considering St Francis as a Club have only played 112 games to date. After another comfortable victory the Bushies were heard singing ‘Bling’ (Confessions of a King) instead of their usual anthem. It went something like “Higher and higher, were gonna take it down to the wire, we’re gonna make it out of the fire, higher and higher. Higher and higher, were gonna take it down to the wire, were gonna make it out, out, out, higher and higher. It ain’t hard to hold when it shines like gold you’ll remember me”. I pack my case, I check my face, I look a little bit older, I look a little bit colder. With one deep breath, and one big step, I move a little bit closer. For reasons unknown it would cost you $65 to attend the VAFA Umpires Association dinner this year; and for reasons unknown I tipped Uni High to beat Aquinas this week, hence why I’m having a GHL (good hard look). Aquinas showed that they are real chance to go deep into September. The Bloods showed glimpses of their best football, and they took full advantage of an ‘off the boil’ Uni to run out 26-point victors. Its funny how you just break down, waiting on some sign. I pulled up to the front of Power House’s drive way, with magic soaking my spine. Power House never really gave up on, breaking out of this two star town, when they got the green light, they got a little fright, they said “we’re gonna turn this thing around”. And they did, recording their first victory of the year. This great club has had a very tough season, but it seems things may finally be turning for them. They led the lad’s from the West at every break in a domiTODAY SELECTIONS IN BOLD Aquinas v Kew St Francis Xavier v UHS-VU Old Westbourne v Albert Park Power House v Ivanhoe Elsternwick v Hawthorn Richmond Central v Yarra Valley

nant display. Michael Chylinkski was man of the match while big gun Paul Edwards was photo for second, kicking six. No more restless hearts, just thoughts of the Promised Land for the House. Finally it was that old rivalry again between Richmond and Hawthorn that completed the round. While neither side can make the finals, this game was played in high spirits and was of high quality. Richmond was far too good for the second time this year defeating the Hawks by comfortable 31-points. Seb Angus was back for the Snakes and booted six, while for the Hawks it was again David Pritchard that stood up.

CHADSTONE, VICTORS AT LAST! The hottest topic in the Amateurs this week had nothing to do with the trials and tribulations of the top flight or of the other higher grades. Instead, the main focus was on the inspirational story of the Chadstone Football Club. A club that in recent times has endured an onslaught of week in and week out humiliation. In the feel good story of the year, the Synners won their first game in just over four long and torrid seasons against Mt Lilydale. After a recent push by the Triple M Football Team there has been an evident increase in morale and competitiveness from the Chadstone outfit in the second half of the season. And on Saturday the dam wall was finally broken as the Synners led from start to finish to dispose of a shocked Mt Lilydale side by 20 points. A staggering seventy home and away games have come and gone between their most recent victories. A painful memory not lost on those who have remained a part of the club through this difficult patch. Holders of the last four wooden spoons in division Four, Chadstone will not avoid this trend at seasons end, however a newfound faith should spur the club on to bigger and better things in season 2013. In an amazing round of action, Box Hill North continued their impressive recent form holding finals bound Point Cook to a thrilling draw. Whilst two points isn’t the four, the Demons would have been happy to split the points after coming from fourteen points behind at the final break. Ethan Doney found plenty of the ball for the home side and he was well assisted by big man Steve Harrison. The Bulldogs would have to be disappointed with their final term as they seemingly had the game in control before a last quarter lapse. In sloppy conditions at Koonung Reserve, Swinburne Uni grinded out a six goal victory 22

against Manningham. In amazing circumstances, the Cobras jumped out of the blocks booting five goals to just one behind in the opening term. From there on the Cobras only kicked another three goals for the game in a disappointing performance. After a big rev up at quarter time the Razorbacks responded to close the gap by half time, before going on to take the ascendancy in the third term. Damon Green was the difference in the end with six goals in a commanding performance out of the goal square. Phil Wild and Nick Mauran were also instrumental in the victory. Sean Leonard continued his sensational second half to the season with another quality four-quarter effort for the Cobras. Without being dominant, the South Mornington Tigers were back to somewhere near their clinical best with a routine five goal victory over West Brunswick on the weekend. There have been some question marks raised recently over the Tigers form and their performance on the weekend did little to stamp out the doubters. However a win is a win, but the yellow and black do need to lift a gear before September. Kade Woodruff collected more than his fair share of disposals, as did Tom Mitchell. For the Magpies Tim Henderson was their standout player on the ground. In the game of the round the Sharks stole victory over the Bulls at the death.

SPORTS INJURY CASUALTY - 316 Malvern Road, Prahran


even on a dirty day. The finals bound Sharks were tested from the opening bounce where North Brunswick trumped the home side seven goals to five in an entertaining opening stanza. From there, a wasteful Eley Park outfit almost kicked themselves out of the contest with fifteen minor scores. David Viola’s five goals was a standout performer in a business like performance by the Sharks. Uri Pech’s disposal by foot was clinical for the visitors and Sahand Ghasimzadeh’s five goals almost stole the show from the finals bound

Sharks who might just go all the way come September. Today: The impressive Bulls host an out of form Point Cook line up in what stands as an important game for the travelling Dogs. Chadstone will get a taste of reality when they travel down to face South Mornington. Box Hill North will be no push over for the Sharks at Elgar Park in another local derby. The lackluster Rams will be up against it when they host Manningham. At West Brunswick, the Razorbacks will be looking to ramp up their form heading into the finals.

THE AMATEUR FOOTBALLER 2012


CLUB WAREHOUSE RISING STAR 2012 JACK LANGFORD - BANYULE Jack is in his second year at Banyule AFC, having played his junior football at Banyule JFC and Redland Sharks in Queensland. Jack played in the Under 19’s in 2011 where he won the competition goalkicking with over 70 goals. He played 1 senior game against Old Mentonians during the year. Jack put on 8kg in the off season and completed a massive pre season which saw him ranked in the top 5 in all of the running exercises. Due to his pre season Jack was picked in round 1 against Monash Blues where he kicked 3 goals, Jack showed his ability to influence a game in Round 2 where he kicked 5.0 against PEGS. Since that game Jack has played in a range of positions from half back, full back, wing and half forward. He has kicked 28 goals for the year and is second behind Adam Barclay in the goalkicking at Banyule. At 197cm his ability to clear the lines with his raking left foot and his versatility to play in various positions has made him a key member of the senior football club. Jacks’ football highlights include representing the Northern Knights in 2011 and being selected to represent the VAFA Under 19’s this year against VCFL. In this game he started forward but played the majority of the game in the ruck.

* to be eligible for the club Warehouse Jack is enjoying being part of a young and enthusiastic Banyule team Rising Star, a player must be born no that will continue to improve. We look forward to seeing Jack further earlier than 1991 and playing his first develop as a player and we see him as a future leader of our football club full season of senior football.

VAFA ELASTOPLAST TRAINER OF THE WEEK JESS SHEEHAN - MANNINGHAM COBRAS On behalf of the Manningham Cobras AFC we are excited to nominate Jess Sheehan for trainer of the year. Jess arrived at the Cobras as a little girl watching her dad, a life member of the club, Rodney ‘Rocket’ Sheehan play football. Growing up watching her dad play Jess was always there to lend a hand. With a keen interest in sports management Jess started as an assistant trainer 6 years ago learning from the other trainers. This year Jess was appointed as head trainer and is now passing on her knowledge to the other junior trainers helping them in their development. Not only has Jess been a fantastic trainer over many years she also lead the recruitment charge when we lost our other trainers from last season. We all know how hard it is to find trainers, so her efforts to help find replacement trainers and then help them be the best they can be has been tremendous. THE AMATEUR FOOTBALLER 2012

RETRO

Geoff Reilley played his 150th game against North Brunswick. David was a former best and fairest winner and premiership captain.

12 MONTHS AGO – 2011 A very sluggish AJAX were very disappointing against Rupertswood and did not look like a side assured of a second semi final berth. After quarter time Rupertswood easily won the centre clearances and their attack on the ball was excellent. As the game wore on AJAX looked ordinary and they finally succumbed 18.19 to 10.7. Best – Gay (3), Smerdon (4), Collins, Monzell, Grech, Smith (Rupertswood) and Marks, Winograd, M Jankie, Steinberg (4), Fayman, C Jankie (AJAX). The undefeated Banyule in Division 1 were gradually pegged back by a determined Old Paradians outfit but were good enough to finish with a 4 goals plus victory 14.9 to 10.6. Best – Barclay (6), Masters, Walsh, Christian, Green, Gayfer (Banyule) and Kappos, Huntley, J Kandilakis (3), C Kandilakis, Lidyard, Spithill (OP). 100 games up for Sam Chester (AJAX), Dan James (Prahran Assumption), Chris Le Maitre (NOBS), Tim Brady (NOBS) and Daniel Costello (Uni Blacks). 5 YEARS AGO – 2007 South Melbourne Districts made sure of their double chance by defeating Williamstown CYMS 18.11 to 10.15 in D2 Section. It was a comprehensive victory but Williamstown had matched the Districts after half time. Best – Cheevers, Jess, Kealy, Batchelor, E Costello, Bracchi (SMD) and Baskharon, McNamara, McGuinness, Gallivan, Munro, Wuchatsch (Williamstown). The two top teams in D3 Section met as Old Westbourne traveled to Hawthorn Amateurs. It was Hawthorn who triumphed after the visitors jumped Hawthorn in the first quarter. It was close for the remainder of the game until Hawthorn won 18.18 to 16.17. Best – Lynch, Pitcher, Pritchard, Ryan, Rowell, McPhie (Hawthorn) and Hunter, Balloch, Collins (4), Morrissey, Harmer, Jeka (OW). Eley Park’s longest serving captain, David Payne, 42

Eltham Old Collegians’ playing coach, John Garrard was leading the D4 Section goal kickers with a total to date of 96. 10 YEARS AGO – 2002 St Bernards took out the minor premiership in A Section when they defeated Old Ivanhoe 11.10 to 10.10 in an entertaining affair. With Old Xavs still two games plus plenty of percentage behind and only two to play it seemed the Xavs and Marcellin would fight out the other second semi position. Best – A Thomas, Fielding, Byrne, Clarke, B Jordan, McLaughlan (StB) and Oates, Toovey (4), Louchran, Corcoran, Young, Crowley (OI). Two Old Xaverians greats passed their 200th games, Michael Blood and Dan Richardson and what credentials for greatness – Michael was a six time premiership player, captain 1997 to 2000, 3 time B&F winner, competition B&F in A section, 2 times Jock Nelson Medalist, State rep 11 times and captain for three seasons. Dan was also a six-time premiership player, six representative games, leading goal kicker for Old Xavs 6 times and competition leading goal kicker twice. Both outstanding players and always presented the very best of amateur traditions. At Elsternwick Park, Mazenod Old Collegians held off Ormond in a B Section thriller with plenty riding on the game for both teams. Mazenod held a clear lead for the majority of the match but Ormond came back strongly in the last before just failing 10.11 to 10.9. Mazenod held their fourth position as a result and Ormond would still need a win or two to avoid relegation. Best – Dunne, Ryan, Apollonio (3), Hanley, tucker, Polan (Mazenod) and Collins (3), Martin (3), Murphy, Grace, Martinov, Miller (Ormond). 20 YEARS AGO – 1992 Elsternwick caused an upset in E Section when they defeated top four team Powerhouse 14.8 to 10.13. Level at three quarter time, Elsternwick, led THE AMATEUR FOOTBALLER 2012


by “spider” Christie and Peter Southall were terrific in the final term and met every challenge. Best – Southall, Christie, Tsiampas, A Contin, Andrew (7), Ward (Elsternwick) and Stafford, Baxter, Doyle, LeDeuz (6), A James, Gallo (Power House). It was not a good start for the day for St Leos in F Section when their reserves team, also on top of their section, were surprisingly defeated by West Brunswick. The seniors did not start as well as expected either but as the game wore on, got well on top of West Brunswick to win 12.15 to 7.9 and retain their undefeated season to date. Best – Miller, Corrigan B Vaughan (3), Robinson, Van Den Akker (St Leos) and Jackson, Gray, Fyffe, McNaughton, S Buckingham, Magafas (West Brunswick). Peter Latzer broke the record (340 games) of his good friend and former teammate, Owen Millis for Old Brighton. A true legend at “The Tonners”, big Pete was determined to continue on to add to his great achievements. 30 YEARS AGO – 1982 In E Section it was a high scoring match between Old Mentonians and Balaclava with Mentonians taking the four points 23.7 to 16.12. Best – Norton, Jamison, Hill (7), Jester, Taylor, Cater (Mentonians) and Crottie, McFadden, Thompson, S withers, Gregory (3), Palmer (Balaclava). Bulleen United ‘kicked the sweep’ in F Section, 27.16 to 10.9 against La Trobe University. Bulleen were 22.9 at three quarter time but were relatively inaccurate in the final term. Best – Pascoe, Pidutti (10), Morley, Ziogas (3), McFarlane (3), Alexander (BU) and Tucci, Brown, Hristovski (3), Newcomin, Saultry, Kleeman (LaT). Assumption Old Collegians congratulated their great clubman, Michael “Bull” Howe on his 300th VAFA game. After first playing with Uni Blacks’ Juniors, “Bull” became a foundation member of Assumption OC in 1964.

Fairfield who had only won 6 games and after wasting shots for goal in the first quarter, Reservoir found themselves down by 3 goals at the first break. Reservoir continued to kick inaccurately but were only level at three quarter time and the upset of the season looked to be on the cards. As Fairfield continued to test the ladder leaders the last 5 minutes saw Reservoir wrest back the lead to win 12.22 to 13.7 and so protected their unbeaten record. Best – Massey, Bates, Aston, Ayres, Jarvie, Slater (ROB) and Cipola, Wykes (3), Grey, Keane, V Jones, Jowett (Fairfield). D Section ladder leaders, Old Brighton, only just got over the line against St Kevins Old Boys 12.9 to 11.13. Best – Kemp, Watkins, Agar (5), Finkmeyer, McBriar (4), Mackenzie (OB) and Nettlefold, B McArdle, Whitmore, M Mansour, Sheehan (3), O’Kelly (SKOBS). 40 Umpires attended a golf day at Torquay and enjoyed a BBQ at David Dressing’s parents holiday home. David was to go on and coach at Ormond and AJAX following his umpiring career. Bill Mason won the trophy. 45 YEARS AGO – 1967 Mick Mulcahy (Old Xaverians) was back from the Carnival and starred for his club with 6 goals but his club lost narrowly to MHSOB by 8 points. 60 YEARS AGO - 1952

40 YEARS AGO – 1972

Commonwealth Bank, battling for a top four spot in A Section kicked 9.3 in the third quarter, a record at the Harry Trott Oval. Don Malcolm kicked 7 goals. Les Morgan (Alphington) and Tom Baird (FTCOB) both played their 100th games.

Reservoir Old Boys were unstoppable in C Section and had not lost a game all season. They met

Geoff Harris, Ormond’s all Australian halfback was best player for his Club in this round.

U19 Premier Old Melburnians shaded a desperately unlucky University Blacks who were looking for their first win of the season. The final margin of just five points doesn’t acknowledge to ferocious nature of the comeback from the students who came from five goals down at quarter time and four goals down at three quarter time to fall agonisingly short. Tom Sharp was brilliant in defeat as was Harry Ukich whilst Melburnians were led by Nick Churkovich and Ed Fanning in their win. Ladder leaders De La Salle were also pushed all the way by St Bedes/Mentone Tigers at Brindisi St. The nine point difference at the final siren showing that the premiership is still and open race. It can be won from fourth spot which the Tigers currently occupy and they will take confidence into September that they are not far away. Jack Gava was best for De La and Ben Nicoll led the way for the Tigers. Uni Blues will be hoping that St Bedes/Mentone drop their next two games as they make a late bit for fourth spot thanks to their surprise 31 point win over St Bernards. Pat Ferguson and Louis Wardle led the way for the Blues who now sit just a game outside the four. Old Xaverians piled on the goals against Beaumaris as they won by 104 points. Rob Ralph (5) and Steve Berengo (4) combining for 9 goals. Old Scotch monstered Fitzroy by 88 points, the Cardinals with 12 goal kickers were too good all day. U19 Section 2 Old Brighton confirmed premiership favouritism with a big 58 point win over Old Haileybury at home Mic Tregear slotted four Chris Hardgrave was dominant in the win that leaves them on top a game clear. St Kevins inflicted worse damage on Old Trinity to be in hot pursuit of the Tonners with a 100 point win at home that belied the result the last time they met. Caulfield sent Marcellin packing by 44 points with a win that most likely secures them finals action. Old Carey didn’t send a side to play Werribee who collected the forfeit points. 46

The Phantom is back: I returned from assignment at the Olympics and was very impressed with the overall organisation of the Games from a spectator viewpoint. Trackside the high level of respect shown by competitors in different events towards each other and the officials was excellent. This leads to the Phantom’s Code of Conduct for the finals: The Phantom’s Final’s Player Code of Conduct Realise that you are playing in the best run football competition in Victoria. 1) Respect the umpires in finals games – they are doing their best. 2) Don’t try anything risky as experienced umpires have seen it all before. 3) At the end of the game shake hands with your opponent. 4) Thank your coach for giving up his time to do the very best with the playing group this year. 5) Thank your team mates for their efforts. 6) When it’s party time- Don’t Drink and Drive – Find a non drinking team mate to take you all home or do as the Phantom did once – walk 5km’s home. A thought on finals The finals series means sunshine, some wind, the smell of cut grass – sounds like a wine add! Bigger crowds gather to watch the action and it’s a great family atmosphere. For teams playing finals as a new experience it is a great day. The Phantom played in a winning A Grade Reserve Premiership many years ago with Ormond, when they were a powerhouse and he still has his medal today. They can be some of the best football experiences in your life so enjoy them and best of luck to all finals teams! U19 Section 3 Mazenod thumped Ormond by 126 points at home with Louis Greco kicking five goals and nine other team mates on the score sheet. Collegians blitzed Old Camberwell at the start to lead all day in a solid win at Gordon Barnard reserve to give them confidence before a potential first semi final clash in a few weeks time. Sam Hibbins and Lindsay Apted led the way for the Lions. PEGS THE AMATEUR FOOTBALLER 2012


outplayed St Bernards all afternoon to win by 41 points. Ben Caminiti and Jack Williams were best performed for PEGS whilst Sean O’Keefe and Jake Notaro were prominent for the Snowdogs. Northern Blues reconfirmed their Premiership credentials after a few wobbly weeks with a strong win over Old Xavs by 43 points. U19 North The game of the day was no doubt between MHSOB and La Trobe University and as we have seen in recent weeks in the heavy conditions a low scoring contest provides with tense and close football. La Trobe clung on to a two point win at the final siren to deny MHSOBs a second win of the season. Michael Hughes, Peter Melilli and Jake Duell were magnificent for the Unicorns but huge performances from Ed Mckenzie, Dom Moore and Luke Fraser help the Uni get over the line by two behinds. At Fawkner reserve Therry Penola couldn’t match Ivanhoe who are looking morals for the flag this year. The four goals loss was no disgrace for the Lions by any means but just two weeks out from finals the Hoers are looking good. Old Geelong had a good win against Williamstown CYMS at Como, winning by 21 points. The win for the OGs is a good confidence booster should the two sides meet again in September. Four goals to Sam Youngman let all comers on the scoreboard but Robert De Crespigny took best afield honours UNDER 19 Premier Beaumaris v Fitzroy Old Scotch v Old Melburnians Old Xaverians v University Blues St Bernards v De La Salle University Blacks v St Bedes / Mentone Tigers UNDER 19 Section 2 Caulfield Grammarians v Old Trinity Old Brighton v Werribee Districts Old Haileybury v Old Carey

on the day ahead of the CY’s best in Baxter Callan. U19 South De La Salle tuned up for the finals with a big win over Hampton Rovers at Boss James. The Rovers have improved greatly over the course of the season but they couldn’t prevent De La kicking 23.18 in their 127 point win. Damon Grant and Nicholas Lowrie each booted five goals whilst three other players kicked three each. A closer contest was held at Brindisi Street where St Bedes/ Mentone Tigers held off St Mary’s Salesian by 11 points. St Mary’s were goalless in the first quarter and outscored the home side after that but could never bridge the gap. The other games were more lopsided as Peninsula won by 160 points against Monash Blues and Parkdale Vultures by 162 points against Beaumaris. Hayden Brodie kicked 7 goals for Peninsula and Chris Welch kicked 6 goals for Parkdale in their win. Beauy must be commended for fronting and playing with just 17 players despite in a day where they failed to kick a goal. Thank you for your nominations of players for each section’s team of the year – I almost have them pencilled in but will take more nominations this week.

UMPIRES

Steve McCarthy & Cam Davidson

MILESTONE AND BON VOYAGE This weekend we’d like to wish Dean Schwab well as he steps out in his 150th VAFA game and last one for the year. Schwabbie tends to be a little excitable on the field at times so we hope he can keep it in check today. After a very trying couple of years off the field, he’s decided now’s the time for break and he heads overseas for about 6 months next week. A big thank you to him for serving the VAFAUA as Treasurer for the last couple of years and he hands over those reins to Jayson Nooy. Enjoy the day Schwabbie, but more importantly enjoy the trip and we’ll see you back and raring to go again in 2013. Of course you’ll be sorely missed at the poker table as well. Escargot? Umpires at a Premier section game last weekend were given a little culinary lesson in the rooms prior to the game. The VAFAUA’s own Gordon Ramsay in Graham Templar (lots of similarities there) and boundary umpire Merime Tamo were heard discussing the best ways to prepare and eat snails. Interesting. Not your usual pre-match talk. All sounded like French to the rest of the group. Worst excuse ever!! Field umpire Avi Wekselman recently arrived at Sportscover Arena to grab a new pair of umpiring shorts. We all have reasons for getting new gear, but his was a beauty. “My dog ate my shorts!” What can you say?

great job!!! In one of the more unusual things I’ve ever seen one of the Reserve Umpires was carried off on a stretcher after destroying a quad. Chris Roach summed it up with “well, I’ve never @$*^!! seen that” Then at the after match the umpires led by Russell Davidson won the Autobarn Ferntree Gully Prize. (Benny wants to know if Rusty will share the prize.)Many former players will also remember Anthony Damen who was a top A Grade Field umpire a few years back. “Damo” just won’t go away and has now rocketed up the goal umpire ladder and did his first Premier Division game with us on Saturday. Well done mate. Birthday Celebrations Last Saturday night a crew of umpires congregated at the Elsternwick Hotel and then took off on a pub crawl to celebrate the 18th birthday of Ben “Brick” Nicholson. Ben was last seen looking a little a little worse for wear after being led astray by some of his older “mates”. One or two too many pineapple cruisers sent him over the edge. Made it up St.Kilda Road with a few stops on the way, hit the city, some Spanish tapas and then, well… say no more. Hope you had a great night Ben. Well organised by Jon Auditore. Poor Ben woke up the next morning finding he’d bought four pairs of runners. Harris Family Butchers Don’t forget our sponsors who always do a sensational job in supplying our barby meat at our functions and meetings. Go down and visit them at 73 Mackie Road East Bentleigh and they’ll look after you. Personal Mortgage Managers For all your buying and selling needs in the real estate world, enlist the help of long-time sponsor Anthony Damen who will certainly do the right thing for you.

IF YOU DON’T MIND UMPIRE – From Collegians Football Club Very difficult conditions for the Umpires on the weekend and it pains me too say they all did a 54

GAME ON The first day of finals saw contrasting results which included one sided games, a late finishing burst and a come from behind nail biting finish. The scene now turns to Sportscover Arena for the next two weeks as the season concludes. Section 1 at Sportscover Arena started on an exciting note when North Old Boys/ St Pat’s came from three goals down to snatch a three point victory over Prahran/ Assumption. The Combine started better and led at the first change before Prahran/ Assumption took the ascendancy and lead until late in the last quarter. A crucial point in the combine comeback was the injury to Prahran/ Assumption dynamo, Jason Storer. Inaccuracy proved detrimental to Prahran/ Assumption as North Old Boys / St Pat’s triumphed with fewer scoring shots. The other two games were one sided affairs in which the two home and away leaders, Old Xaverians and Old Melburnians, easily accounted for their opposition. Old Melburnians never allowed St Bernard’s into their match which the Melburnians won by 83 points. Old Xaverians set up their 84 point victory over 2011 Premiers De La Salle with a strong opening quarter which gave them a 19 point lead at the first change. The Crocodiles went further ahead in the second quarter and led by 45 points at half time. De La Salle scored a solitary goal in half a match while Old Xaverians continued to dominate until the final siren. The First Semi Final in Section 2 provided a good contest between Old Geelong and Richmond Cardinals. Old Geelong drew away in the last quarter to win by 25 points. The Cardinals inability to score at the northern end proved costly as they trailed by a mere four points at the last change. A tense last quarter which was anticipated was not to be. In retrospect the O.G.’s 60

first quarter effort against the wind proved to be basis for their first final’s victory. The Second Semi Final between Hawthorn and Therry Penola was a hard fought affair in which Hawthorn set up their victory with four unanswered first quarter goals. Therry Penola was forced into playing catch up football which left them 31 points in arrears at half time. After half time, Hawthorn’s superior aerial strength and pace around the ground left the tiring Therry Penola players in their wake when they added another eight goals to two to record a 67 point victory. In Section 1 Preliminary Finals, this season’s four leading teams have won the right to play today. In the midday match second placed Old Melburnians meet North Old Boy’s/ St Pat’s who came from behind to win last Sunday. In their only meeting this season, Old Melburnians won by 75 points. Their leading goal kicker, Theodore Coad outscored the combine himself that day and with six goals last week, he showed he will be a force to be reckoned with today. North Old Boy’s / St Pat’s seem to have the ability to play well under pressure, although when their fortunes go awry their scoring dries up as instanced by their efforts against both Old Melburnians and Old Xaverians this season. I select Old Melburnians to win this game comfortably. Undefeated Old Xaverians play Prahran / Assumption who faltered near the end of last TODAY SELECTIONS IN BOLD CLUB XVIII (1) - Preliminary Final 1 Old Xaverians v Prahran Assumption CLUB XVIII (1) - Preliminary Final 2 Old Melburnians v NOBS/St Pats CLUB XVIII (2) - Preliminary Final Old Geelong v Therry Penola

THE AMATEUR FOOTBALLER 2012


Sunday’s Final. Is it a case of “No Storer, no Prahran / Assumption?” We will know by the end of this game. These sides met in Round 3 when the Old Xaverians won by 59 points over the markedly inaccurate Four Blues. The Xaverians that day shared their goal scoring among nine players and today I can foresee something similar happening as James McDonnell and Matthew Green will prove too big and strong for the Prahran / Assumption defenders. The big Sportscover Arena will be another factor in determining the result, because while the Xaverians scored an easy victory last Sunday, the Four Blues faltered when the game was theirs for the taking. I am in no doubt Old Xaverians will win this match.

CLUB XVIII (1)

Old Geelong defeated Therry Penola by a mere two points. A repeat of this close contest will set the scene for an exciting day’s football. From what I saw last Sunday, I favour Old Geelong to win again because I expect their big men led by Zac Taylor to prove too fast for the bigger but slower Therry Penola followers. Further the wide expanses of Sportscover Arena will favour Old Geelong because of their experience on Como Park. Star Therry Penola forward, Ray Steer had a Semi Final to forget and he will be anxious to prove his goal kicking worth today. If given latitude, he could kick Therry Penola to victory.
