Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au BITTERN residents opposed to plans to link their close with a large subdivision are concerned increased traffic will diminish the familyfriendly character of their area. Hector Close resident Rhys Matulis, who has collected signatures from 14 of the street’s 24 properties who are opposed to plans to link Hector close with Henderson Road, says the proposal will endanger children playing in the street. “[Linking the two roads] is not in keeping with the character of existing subdivisions in Bittern in which streets are deliberately not joined to reduce through traffic and enhance their family-friendly character,” Mr Matulis said. “We are not against the development [in Henderson Road] – we just don’t want it to connect to our close. “A close by normal standards is not connected to other streets.” The residents would prefer the streets to be joined by a walkway. “This type of feature can be found elsewhere in Bittern and more broadly in the shire and would preserve the nature of the close,” neighbour Matthew Wood said. “It would allow pedestrians to safely walk around our beautiful suburb.” However, Mornington Peninsula Shire planner Emine Gurleyen in a letter to the residents said the council was satisfied the linking of the streets was “consistent with the provisions of the Mornington Peninsula

Planning Scheme and will ensure orderly planning of the area”. She said: “The continuation of Hector Close was always foreseen when the original subdivision of 125 Hendersons Road (which contains the dwellings on Hector Close today) into 21 lots was assessed and consequently approved.” The council says it prefers a vehicle connection with Hector Close to improve safety by allowing easier manoeuvring of rubbish trucks, Australia Post and newspaper deliveries. The planner said through traffic would “mostly be cars of those living and visiting properties within the subdivision”. But Mr Matulis said the council had “seen fit to completely ignore the views of the residents of Hector Close”. “To argue that the new subdivision needs to join our close for the collection of waste seems a very weak reason as council currently collects waste from dead-end closes [like ours] everyday across the shire,” he said. “Myself and the other residents … feel very strongly about protecting our close and will appeal any decision to issue a permit which approves the connection of the new subdivision to Hector Close at VCAT.” He said the council should “listen to the views of the residents … and work with the applicant to develop the new subdivision without the need to connect to the current Hector Close subdivision”.

Wearing It Wild for a cause TYABB Primary School’s Wear It Wild family day last week raised $300 which will allow it to adopt and support four elephants from the International Elephant Project. The money will help protect elephants Ginting, Freda, Cinta and Anna through Wildlife Protection units, medicine, veterinary care and food. Students at the school are learning about endangered animal adoption as part of their Studies of Asia, Indonesian program, after previously studying the plight of Sumatran tigers and orang-utans. Only about 1500 elephants remain in the wild in Indonesia, with their main threats being habitat loss and human-elephant conflict. During Wear it Wild day the students dressed up in animal prints and donated gold coins. “The current situation and future for Sumatra’s

elephants is bleak,” teacher Leanne Day said. “The island has undergone rapid change in the past 25 years and this has had a catastrophic effect on the habitat of the wild elephant. “The main goal of the International Elephant Project is to support the conservation of elephants by providing detailed and reliable information on elephant movement. “By protecting and monitoring one elephant in each animal group, we will be protecting the whole herd.” Ms Day said Tyabb Primary School was “incredibly passionate about protecting our animals and the environment”. “By supporting International Elephant Project we will endeavour to maintain a peaceful coexistence between humans and Sumatran elephants in the islands of Indonesia.”

‘Conti’ in new hands – again Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au A “LOCAL private developer” has bought Sorrento’s heritage-listed Continental Hotel after a two-month sales campaign by Colliers International. Vendor Julian Gerner on Friday would not disclose the buyer’s name or the price, which is tipped to be about $22 million. The sale of the four-storey limestone building at 1-21 Ocean Beach Road includes an adjoining former public car park at 23 Constitution Hill Road. Colliers International’s Guy Wells said the sale was a “significant win for both the much-loved hotel and the wider community, as the purchaser has committed capital and the ability to bring this iconic asset back to life through an extensive redevelopment”. He said the purchaser planned to “recommence works on the existing redevelopment as soon as possible”. Sorrento locals had feared the derelict icon in its half-finished state could be lost to the stormy winter weather – a concern repeatedly raised at a 400-strong public meeting at which Mr Gerner announced his intention to put the 1875 building on the market. (Turnout proves ‘Conti’ dear to Sorrento’s heart The News 8/7/19).

Mr Gerner – who is in Broome on holidays with his family – said the new owners had “more than three decades of experience in construction and development [and were] perfectly placed to pick up where construction left off”. “While the purchaser wishes to remain private and details of the sale are confidential, [they] have committed to deliver the vision as promised,” he said. “I continue to work closely with Mornington Peninsula Shire, Heritage Victoria and the heritage architect to ensure all obligations are met and the site is maintained appropriately during the settlement period.” Mr Wells said the sales campaign had “received strong interest from a wide variety of owner operators, developers and investors, with the successful purchaser a local private developer who plans to recommence works on the existing redevelopment as soon as possible”. “The purchaser will engage with stakeholders and ensure the development is in line with heritage and existing planning guidelines,” he said. “The sale is a significant win for both the much-loved Continental Hotel and the wider community, as the purchaser has committed capital and the ability to bring this iconic asset back to life through an extensive redevelopment.”

New wheels for peninsula students STUDENTS from Peninsula Specialist College, Dromana, can now access and enjoy more of the peninsula thanks to a purpose-built trailer for their bike riding excursions. Main Ridge Men’s Shed, with $5000 from a Mornington Peninsula Shire Placemaking Grant and funds from Red Hill Lions Club, built the trailer after receiving a request from the college. A basic trailer was bought locally at low cost from the Mornington Chamber of Commerce and remodelled to include a waterproof storage area for

equipment and luggage and space for 12 bike racks. Front and rear props were attached so that the trailers would be stable when stationary. The completed trailer was wrapped by Signforce at Somerville at a discounted rate. It is now ready to be towed by the school’s minibus. Shed member Paddy Byrne took up the skills challenge and fellow member Rob Barfus sought funding and completed the administration work. The mayor Cr David Gill said the shire’s Placemaking Grants program supported projects, programs and

services that “identify a community need and contribute to the building of stronger and more liveable communities”. “It was fantastic to visit the college and see the huge impact this new trailer will have for students,” he said. “Community partnership projects like this strengthen our communities.” To view the shire’s Placemaking Grants program or to apply for a grant, visit: mornpen.vic.gov.au/ grants

Getting to know you ESSO Long Island Point plant manager David McCord went back to school last week as part of the Principal For A Day program. The annual event organised through the Australian Council for Educational Research allows an industry leader to “shadow” a school principal and participate in normal day-to-day activities at a secondary school. The program aims to raise understanding and awareness between schools, business and the wider community; promote the work that schools do; provide business and community leaders with first-hand experiences of schools; enable principals to develop relationships with leaders in other spheres, and increase opportunities for schools and the community to work

together in beneficial ways. Mr McCord joined Western Port Secondary College principal Chris Quinn for the event and the pair spent the day discussing their roles as leaders in their organisations and the challenges and opportunities for young people in the community of Hastings. The day included a tour of the school’s facilities and a focus on the close working relationship between Western Port Secondary College and the cluster network of primary schools. This year, the program coincided with the Grade 5 Discover Day in which 223 Grade 5 students from feeder primary schools engaged in activities as part of the college’s suite of transition events across the year for students in grades 4-6.

“As a business leader, it was inspirational to me to spend a day at Western Port Secondary College to witness the tremendous work Chris Quinn and his team are doing educating and preparing our future business and community leaders,” Mr McCord said. Mr McCord said the Principal for a Day program was an “incredible opportunity that brings industry and education together and to share our common focus on enhancing the pathways and outcomes for young people”. “David has shown a real passion and commitment to the broader community of Hastings and I look forward to continuing to explore partnering opportunities between Western Port Secondary College and ESSO into the future,” he said.

Judy gets back to clogging after stroke ON a cue of “Let’s clog Shirl,” Judy Phillips, stroke survivor, and Shirley Cheah, Peninsula Health physiotherapist, performed a type of folk dance called clogging before a large group of Allied Health staff at Peninsula Health’s Golf Links Road Rehabilitation Centre. Comfortable in the limelight after a career as a children’s television presenter, Ms Phillips said she had one clear goal after her stroke last June – “I really wanted to get back to clogging.” The toe-tapping show and lunch on Wednesday 4 September was organised as part of Stroke Week and most of Peninsula Health’s Stroke Detours team members who worked with Judy were there to enjoy it. “They supported me when I really needed it

Attention Schools, sporting clubs

and I would have been very lost and confused if it hadn’t been for them,” she said. The Stroke Detours Team works with patients in their homes following their discharge from hospital after a stroke. “Judy’s great cardiovascular fitness from clogging was a big factor in her recovery,” Stroke Detours team Leader Nicola Bronts said. “Our team worked with Judy, and her husband Bob, at their home to help her get back to doing what she loves to do, including clogging.” Ms Phillips spent many years hosting Fredd Bear’s Breakfast-a-Go-Go five days a week on Channel 10, which is where she met her two time Logie-winning husband Bob Phillips, the show’s producer.

She shared details of her journey and thanked Allied Health staff at the Stroke Week event. When asked what she would do differently if she had her stroke again, she didn’t hesitate. “As soon as I felt something was wrong I should have called an ambulance. I didn’t do that, I went to bed and it was Bob who insisted we called an ambulance.” Ms Phillip’s message to other stroke survivors is to never give up. “Put your boxing gloves on and be positive, every day is a new day.” The Stroke Foundation urges people to recognise stroke and Think F.A.S.T F– Has their face drooped?

Sports better the second time around CHILDREN living in many poorer and more remote areas can only dream of received old sporting items that, on the Mornington Peninsula, are being thrown out. That’s why balls, bats, racquets, shoes and apparel are all welcome in the Good Sports bin for use a second time around. Mornington Community Information and Support Centre is partnering with the Rotary Club of Mt Martha to support the Good Sports program. “We have installed a Good Sports bin in our centre and invite people to bring in all their old sporting equipment to donate to kids in communities, especially remote areas,” centre manager Stuart DavisMeehan said. “Mt Martha Rotary – and especially Rotarian Pat Morton – are working closely with Western Australian company Fair Game, which transports the second hand sporting goods to disadvantaged communities around Australia. “We are going to trial the bin for four weeks and I hope that we can make it so successful that it becomes a permanent fixture at the centre.” A second bin is at Mt Martha House.

CHASING Change is welcoming members of the community to come together to reflect, share stories, offer support and raise awareness of the importance of mental health at the annual World Suicide Prevention Day Walk at Mornington Park, 9am, Sunday 15 September. The walk is being held in collaboration with Mornington Peninsula Shire Youth Services, It’s Okay Not To Be Okay, Free Hearts, HALT and SEMPHN. “The aim is to create a positive, safe, and welcoming event in which people of all ages, backgrounds, and experiences can come together to acknowledge the impact suicide has on many people’s lives,” said Chasing Change’s Rebecca Tyler, adding that the suicide prevention network serviced all the Mornington Peninsula. “Chasing Change is out to spread word of the event and encourage more support networks, events and greater recognition of those who

have been lost. “This will be done through a ceremony in which people who have lost a loved one due to suicide can nominate to have their name and age read out to the crowd during a moment’s silence. “By doing this, it is hoped to extend the sense of support people feel within the community.” Ms Tyler said it was important people recognised that suicide was a community-wide issue requiring a community-wide solution. “This is a small step in a long process of bringing communities together to collectively work towards reducing suicide, and increase people’s awareness of positive mental health,” she said. All are welcome at the walk. Details: Information on the event and how to register a loved one’s name can be found on the Chasing Change Facebook Page, or by emailing frankstonspn@gmail.com

Mayor thanks Wynne over Kaufland veto Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire Council has written to planning minister Richard Wynne to personally thank him for “rejecting plans for an inappropriately-sited Kaufland supermarket proposal” at the gateway to Mornington. This follows Mr Wynne’s rejection of the company’s bid for a 4000 square metre retail mega-hub at the corner of Oakbank Road and Nepean Highway, Mornington – the Bata Shoes site. The minister had said he made the decision after “community consultation raised concerns about the nature of the development and the site’s

proximity to the green wedge”. “We’ve listened to the community and ensured the gateway to Mornington is properly planned. We’re taking

Valid until 30th September 2019

action to ensure Victoria remains a great place to live, work and do business,” he said. In the letter the mayor Cr David

Gill said the knockback had “protected the viability of the Mornington Village – one of the few successful shopping strips in the state – and safeguarded the green approach to one of Victoria’s most popular regional towns”. He told Mr Wynne: “The news was warmly received by the Mornington Peninsula community. “The council worked closely with the community on this issue to ensure the voices of local residents were heard. The … community is passionate about protecting the unique qualities of this special region, as recognised in the state’s Localised Planning Statement. “The community is keen to express its gratitude and I would like to extend a warm invitation to [you to]

visit Mornington so that residents can thank you in person. I would be happy to host and facilitate such a visit. “Once again, I thank you for your willingness to listen to the community on this important issue.” A Kaufland spokesperson said the company was “disappointed with the outcome of Mornington”. “We still believe in the merit of our application [but] we respect the advisory committee’s decision. It’s the beauty of an independent process.” The German giant is going ahead with stores at Coolaroo and Oakleigh South, and has announced plans for at least nine other stores – at Braybrook, Lyndhurst, Geelong, South Morang, Bendigo, Narre Warren, Warrnambool, Coburg and Pakenham.

Monkey bike off the road A MAN allegedly riding a monkey bike without a helmet was later found to be unlicensed, and, when drug tested, proved positive to methylamphetamine. Police say they saw the bike on Graydens Road, Hastings, 8.35pm, Tuesday 3 September. The 32-year-old rider, of Mornington, will be summonsed to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court in relation to drug driving, unlicensed driving, riding an unregistered motor vehicle and not wearing a helmet. His monkey bike was impounded for 30 days for a cost of $1075. “Police receive constant complaints from the public about unregistered monkey or trail bikes due to them being ridden dangerously and causing a public nuisance,” Senior Constable Gregg Wolfe, of Somerville Highway Patrol, said. “Anyone with good information about the addresses or identities of people illegally or dangerously riding unregistered bikes should call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.”

Speedster’s thinking ‘beggars belief ’ A MASERATI was nabbed on mobile radar travelling at 189kph in a 100kph zone along Mornington-Flinders Road, Flinders, Saturday 31 August. Asked by Somerville Highway Patrol police why he was speeding, the 29-year-old, of South Yarra, said he

was running late to visit his sister. Like all drivers intercepted for any reason he was drug-and-alcohol tested with both tests proving negative. “Some people seem to think they can drive at these crazy speeds because they have a good car and they think they’re good drivers,” Acting Sergeant Anthony Deason said. “How someone can think 189kph on Mornington-Flinders Road is OK beggars belief. “The undivided two-way road has undulations, bends, rough surfaces, gravel shoulders, cars possibly coming out of side roads and property driveways and tourists – I mean, hello … what could possibly go wrong? “If you want to do speeds like that move to Germany and drive on the autobahns where it’s legal and the roads are purpose built for it. Doing those speeds here is just stupidity.” Acting Sergeant Deason said 13 people had died in collisions in the Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula areas this year “including one just around the corner from here in Boneo Road a few weeks ago”. “We’d prefer not to attend any more.” The driver’s sister turned out to be the owner of the Maserati. “We think given the choice of her brother driving safely and running a bit late versus him driving like a lunatic and having her car impounded for 30 days with a $1390 release fee, she would have chosen the first option,” Acting

Sergeant Deason said. The man will be summonsed to appear in court at a later date over several road policing offences. He faces a minimum 12 months’ loss of licence as well as extra fines.

Cash looking for its owner CASH found at Rosebud is being held at Rosebud police station. The money was in an envelope with a personal message written on the front. “If you are the owner of this money and can tell police the amount in the envelope, and what was written on the front, we will return it to you,” police property officer Tony Paterson said. He can be contacted on 5986 0444.

Rules of the road explained A YOUNG driver showed the steps required to get pulled over by the police on the Mornington Peninsula last week: Exceed the speed limit, have the car lowered so it has less than 100mm ground clearance, and have a bumper sticker saying “Cops don’t like this” on the back. The 24-year-old driver, of Mildura, was intercepted by Somerville Highway Patrol travelling at 115kph in a 100kph zone on the Mornington Peninsula Freeway at Dromana, Sun-

day 1 September. The driver said he was on his way to a car show. A bright yellow vehicle defect notice was stuck on the windscreen of his 1986 Toyota requiring him to get a full roadworthy certificate, as well as pay a $343 speeding fine along with the loss of three demerit points. Senior Constable Gregg Wolfe, of Somerville Highway Patrol, said motorists intending to modify their cars should make sure they do not take it outside the Standards for Registration. “Driving within the speed limit is also a good idea,” he said.

Building site raided BURGLARS stole plumbing equipment from a house under construction in Lister Avenue, Sorrento, overnight Wednesday 4 September. The value of their haul is put at $2400.

Litterbugs sought MEMBERS of the public are being

asked to help identify the man above in relation to public order and littering offences at the rear of an Eramosa Road shopping centre. Anyone with information should call Hastings Police 5970 7800.

Gallery hosts prints ‘influencer’

With Stephen Taylor

They were later seen dragging the registers to a dark coloured SUV – possibly a Porsche Cayenne – in the car park. One of the men was wearing black tracksuit pants and a grey hoodie.

Shed entered DETECTIVES are trying to work out what was stolen after offenders forced their way into a shed at a property in Graydens Road, Hastings, overnight Tuesday 3 September. Boats and cars are normally stored inside. A neighbour noticed roller doors to the shed were open and called police. The owners are overseas.

A COLLECTION of David Hockney prints drawn from the National Gallery of Australia’s collection will go on display at Mornington Peninsula Gallery, October-1 December. Hockney is considered one of the most influential British artists of the 20th Century and an essential contributor to the pop art movement of the 1960s. So popular is the artist’s work that his 1972 Portrait of an Artist (Pool with Two Figures) sold at Christie’s auction house in New York City in November 2018 for $90 million, becoming the most expensive work by a living artist sold at auction*. The exhibition showcases his talents as one of the greatest printmakers of our time and offers a thrilling insight into the mind of an iconic artist still searching for new ways of seeing. The exhibition, titled David Hockney: Prints, features about 80 works from 1961 to the present, including prints developed using lithography and etching, photocopiers and fax machines, and more recently, iPhones and iPads. “Art is often about influence, and it is an absolute privilege to exhibit at the MPRG the prints of one of the greatest influencers of the 20th Century,” Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery director Jane Alexander said. Hockney is considered an international artist who moved to Los Angeles in 1964 and, during his lifetime, exhibited widely in the US, UK and Europe. His works demonstrate a

Brock, of Somerville CIU, said the 19-year-old was tackled by a “Good Samaritan” as he left one of the shops early Saturday morning. During what was termed an “altercation” his keys were thrown into a bush and he was intercepted by police before he could find them and escape. The man has been charged with four counts of burglary and remanded in custody. As he was on bail for other matters in Bendigo it is unclear whether he will face court at Frankston or there.

Car stolen A TOYOTA Land Cruiser was stolen from the car park at the end of Dundas Street, St Andrews, while its owner was walking along the beach, Thursday 5 September. The owner is offering a reward for the return of the $20,000 car with registration AGC422. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

‘Friendly’ game

A TEAM from Mornington Secondary College will play an AFL Rules game against Clontarf Foundation at Alexandra Park, Mornington, 11.15am, Wednesday 18 September. The college’s Ben Hall said Clontarf was a group of 14-15-year-old indigenous boys from across Victoria.

Fitness helps charity

ANYTIME Fitness Mornington members raised $21,026 in the annual 24-hour treadmill challenge Tread As One, in May. This was the most raised by any of the fitness chain’s 250 clubs across Australia. In total the chain raised about $1.1 million for suicide prevention charity RUOK.

Night work

SOUTH East Water says its crews are working at night whenever possible to minimise disruptions to motorists in Main Street, Mornington. They are renewing the mains as part of the upgrading of underground infrastructure. Works are taking place 7pm-6am, Sunday to Thursday, until next month.

Walkers reap the rewards Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au THE benefits of walking in a group are well documented, but the “hidden” benefits – such as creating friendships, having someone to talk to, sharing a coffee, finding out about other activities and getting involved in volunteering opportunities – are equally valuable to participants. That’s what makes the Mornington Central Mall Walking Group so special to its members after a decade of exercise. The group began with a handful of members as Centro Mornington Walks in February 2009. They had the backing of Mornington Peninsula Shire and Peninsula Health. Word spread and by 2012, about 25 walkers were on the books with 10-15 weekly walkers participating. Now – with the increased popularity of regular exercise – the group has about 80 members with 40 to 50 donning their active wear and joggers each week. “This group has become a mall walking community with members supportive and caring for each other through difficult times,” secretary and longstanding member Joan Law said. “The program is run with the sponsorship of the shopping centre and the shire’s port and leisure section, and supported by a trained walk leader and team of volunteers.” Ms Law said the shopping centre sponsors the trained instructor and provided a desk, t-shirts, rack for jackets, printed information sheets

Off they go: Mall walkers pace themselves on their weekly workouts. Picture: Yanni

and name tags. Walks are held 7.45am-8.45am on Thursdays, before most shops open. They go from early February after schools resume until the end of November when some shops open early for Christmas trade. The supervised and supportive walking program is designed for older people but is suitable for all ages, Ms Law said.

“There are warm-up and cool-down stretches at the start and end of each walk, as well as some strength and balance exercises after every five or so laps.” Walk leader Sandy Dillon has guided walkers through each week’s session since 2013. He works with the shire and has been trained under Council of the Ageing guidelines. Volunteers Brian Baker, Beris

Connell, Lesley Fawcett, Kimberley Turner and Chris Withers assist the walk leader and attend to the weekly administration at the centre at 78 Barkly Street, Mornington. Anyone wanting to join the group should call Mornington Central’s centre management on 5976 1299 or Mornington Peninsula Shire 5075 0133.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Peace Bonds aeroplane belatedly arrives Compiled by Cameron McCullough THE aeroplane used to advertise the Peace Loan arrived in Frankston on Monday afternoon shortly after 3 o’clock. It was advertised to make its appearance in the forenoon, and a good deal of disappointment and inconvenience was occasioned the public, who had assembled at the Old Racecourse paddock at 11 a.m. in anticipation of its arrival at that hour. Nothing was known of the altered arrangements till Crs Oates and Mason motored to the rendezvous and announced that a message had just come through to the effect that the programme had been altered. Probably a reasonable explanation could be given as to why the aeroplane could not arrive at 11am as originally intended, but it is difficult to explain why the local committee was not informed of the revised arrangement in time to warn the public. As a matter of fact our aerial visitor was cutting capers over the neighboring town of Dandenong at the hour Frankston residents were vainly scanning the skyline for its appearance. However, the aeroplane ultimately arrived, and the occasion is likely to be long remembered by the juveniles at least. All the school children were present, and there was great hurrahing as the machine hove in sight. As it prepared to alight, the youngsters and even some of their elders did not appear too anxious to get too near to the monster of the air. An aeroplane at close quarters is a fearsome thing to the unsophisticated,

and many of the children took to their heels and would not venture near till the machine was quietly resting on the ground. The appearance of the smiling face of Captain Cobby had a reassuring effect, and after the aviator gave up his seat in the plane to Councillor Oates, the crowd considered it safe enough to draw closer. Cr Oates briefly explained the object of the airship’s mission, after which Sgt Cooper said that other loans were used to kill human beings, but this loan was for the purpose of putting the soldiers back into their former positions. At the beginning of the war their Prime Minister, Mr Andrew Fisher, promised the last man and the last shilling, but there was no need for any man to go away and brave the hardships again, still there was the need for money to be supplied to our authorities so that they might carry on. Speaking of his experience in America, he said that country was doing a lot for its soldiers, but its troops had not been in the war as long as Australians, and, although they had done a lot in the line, they did not do better than the Aussies, and, were not our men, therefore, entitled to more than the Americans? They do not ask for something they were not entitled to, but only a fair and square deal, and it was now the people’s time to do something for them. He then appealed to the gathering to take out Peace bonds. During the afternoon bonds to the

value of £1000 were applied for. *** ALL State schools will be closed from 22nd to 26th September, inclusive, in connection with the Royal Show.

THE Digger’s Job and Ours – The Commonwealth Government is floating the Peace Loan of £25,000,000, stresses the fact that the whole of the Loan will be used for war and repatriation purposes – principally the latter. When one takes into consideration what the A.I.F. did for Australia and the Empire generally, one cannot but admit that the effort of the man who stayed at home, be it ever so great, is small by comparison. Now is the time for Australia to finish the job. The Digger’s task to re-establish himself. *** Police Court. At the Frankston Police Court on Monday before Messrs C. V. G. Williams (chairman), C. W.

Red Hill take home premiership DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn RED Hill have been crowned as MPNFL Division Two premiers for 2019. The Hillmen ran onto Frankston Park on Saturday with fire in their bellies, looking to avenge their Grand Final loss against Dromana last season. They took on Karingal in this year’s big dance. From the outset, Red Hill defended well and were able to restrict the Bulls from scoring. The Hillmen have been notoriously difficult to score against this year, with most sides rarely managing more than a handful of goals against them. Red Hill struggled to find the scoreboard themselves, but eventually went into half time with a narrow two goal lead. Although the Bulls trailed, there was always a chance they could bounce back. Star forward Marc Holt had scored 20 goals in two weeks, and has proved to be a match winner all season. Restricting Holt’s influence turned out to be vital for the Hillmen. He could only manage one goal for the afternoon, making the task all the more difficult for the Bulls. A five goals to one final term sealed the result, as Red Hill claimed the win and the premiership with a 9.11 (65) to

4.3 (27) win. Chris Irving was one of the Hillmen’s best, booting three goals. Jake Mitchell was also brilliant, as was Lachlan Chandler and Jonah Siversen. Jamie Mollo coached his side to the win. Red Hill’s premiership win sees them seal their promotion into the first division for next year. Karingal has a rough afternoon all around, as their Reserves and under19s sides also fell short. Langwarrin and Karingal did battle in the seconds Grand Final, with the Kangaroos hopping away to an easy 16.12 (108) to 4.9 (33) win. Dale Donkin was the hero, booting eight goals.

That winning feeling: Red Hill’s Grand Final win sees them promoted to Division One in 2020. Picture: Andrew Hurst

By Brodie Cowburn DROMANA have booked their Grand Final spot with a win over Bonbeach. The Tigers scored the only goal of a scrappy first term, and ended up going into the half time break with an eight point lead. Dromana stretched their lead in the third term, and managed to keep the Sharks at an arm’s length. Bonbeach couldn’t close the gap, and Dromana ended up taking the win 8.7 (55) to 5.6 (36). Sam Fowler booted three goals for the winning Tigers, while Sam Guerts also had a big impact. The Tigers go into this weekend’s clash against Sorrento looking to go back to back. They won the second division premiership last year, and are now looking to back it up with a first division win. Their Sorrento opponents will be looking to make up for their devastating Grand Final defeat from last year. The Sharks were defeated last season by Pines after the Pythons scored a behind after the siren. The match will be played on Saturday at Skybus Stadium, Frankston starting from 2pm. Mt Eliza and Frankston YCW will play in the Reserves Grand Final from midday.

Wee Mikey sends United Skye high SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie WEE Mikey Turner claimed the goal that sent Skye United into State 2 with a nerve-jangling 1-0 win over Monash Uni at Skye Recreation Reserve on Saturday. Knowing that a win would secure promotion Skye made hard work of it against an opponent that had come to play and make life as difficult as possible for the home side. There have been many times this season that Skye gaffer Phil McGuinness has made effective substitutions and introducing Daniel Attard, Turner then Maxim Avram into the fray in the second half proved effective once more. Attard had an immediate impact setting up Jack Gallagher who squared the ball to midfielder Mark O’Connor but the Irishman couldn’t hit the target from close range. The moment that sent a huge crowd into a frenzy came in the 84th minute when Monash failed to clear following an O’Connor free-kick and Attard won the loose ball on the left of the area then crossed into the goalmouth. In the ensuing scrimmage Turner prodded the ball over the line with Monash keeper Sima Pasahat desperately trying to keep it out as he lay on the ground. The collective sigh of relief that descended on Skye Recreation Reserve was palpable and when the final whistle sounded supporters rushed onto the pitch to join players, coaching staff and committee in a group celebration. Few pundits predicted at the start of the season that Skye would win promotion and McGuinness and assistant Stephen Duffy have worked wonders with their squad. And during the euphoria many thoughts turned to the late Chris Attard who had been the soul of the club for decades and whose sons and wife retain a close association with the local outfit. In NPL2 news Langwarrin had to settle for a point in Saturday’s 1-1 home draw with Eastern Lions. The result ensured that the visitors clinched the championship after second-placed Bulleen was surprisingly beaten at home 5-2 by Goulburn Valley Suns who had to play with 10 men for the last 35 minutes. Langy took the lead against Lions in the 38th minute with a mistimed strike from defender Luke Burgess that deceived Lions’ keeper Keegan Coulter and trickled over the goal line. Two minutes into the second half

Skye’s the limit: Liam Attard leads the celebrations after Skye United’s success on Saturday. Picture: Gemma Sliz

a long clearance from Langy keeper Fraser Maclaren sailed over the head of the Lions defence and set up Damir Stoilovic with Coulter stranded but the former Springvale White Eagles striker lobbed the ball wide with the goal at his mercy. Lions had to wait until the 87th minute to hit back and the equaliser came when a Ziggy Razuki cross from the left skimmed off the head of Langy substitute Alex Van Heerwarden and into the far corner even though Maclaren got a hand to the ball. In State 1 news Mornington scored twice in quick succession in a 2-0 home win over Eltham Redbacks last weekend. In the 62nd minute a defensive howler from former Mornington player Andy Maclean gifted Liam Baxter with the opener and a minute later substitute Noah Werner tapped the ball into an unguarded goal after the Eltham keeper had dropped a high Baxter cross under pressure from Josh Hine. In State 2 news Peninsula Strikers went down 3-2 at home to South Springvale in a thriller on Saturday. South Springvale led 1-0 at halftime and Daniel Clinton gave it a twogoal cushion a minute into the second half. But two John Prescott goals levelled

proceedings and it took a Marcelo Arapis free-kick in injury time to win the match and with promotion rival Berwick City losing it sent the Greekbacked South Springvale back into State 1 after a two-year hiatus. In State 3 news Frankston Pines enjoyed a 1-0 away win over Middle Park last weekend and there was no love lost between rival coaches Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor of Pines and Andy Webster of Middle Park. Taylor claims that Webster refused to shake hands before the kick-off and that harsh words were exchanged. “When I left he was standing out the front and glaring,” Taylor said. “I waved at him, thanked him for another three points and wished him well wherever he ends up next year because I’d be surprised if he’s still there.” CJ Hodgson got the winner thanks to a 55th-minute free-kick. Bailey Atkinson of Pines was forced off with a broken wrist early in the first half. In State 4 news Baxter finished the season in style with a 4-0 home win over Springvale City last weekend. The result means Baxter earned three points more than its total in 2018 when its tally included a 3-0 walkover due to the opposition playing a player under a false name. The win against Springvale City

came via second half goals from Stuart McKenzie (2), Lewis Gibson and Matt McDermott. Harry McCartney reports that there was a farcical finale to Seaford United’s season when three Seaford players were sent off in injury time as the local side defeated Chelsea 4-0 at Edithvale Recreation Reserve on Saturday. In the 32nd minute Matthias Schwellinger’s cross was headed home powerfully by Dylan Waugh at the back post to open the scoring. Chelsea striker Daniel Vella had three attempts to square the ledger before half time, but was denied by Seaford keeper Anthony Madafferi, the woodwork and a poorly placed shot from directly in front of goal. Seaford’s second came in the 53rd minute when Jeremy Schwellinger pounced on a defensive error for a simple lob over advancing Chelsea keeper Rhys Davies. Another defensive error a minute later gifted Waugh his second goal when he slotted home into the bottom corner leaving Chelsea players arguing among themselves. In the 70th minute Jeremy Schwellinger was brought down inside the box and Jack Carter made it 4-0 with an unconvincing but effective spot kick after Davies got a good hand

to the strike. In the 93rd minute Chelsea was awarded a free-kick just outside the area and chaos descended. Referee Dino Christodoulou attempted to move Seaford’s defensive wall back the required distance. First Kane Ireson was yellow carded for not moving back then Mathias Schwellinger was cautioned. When both parties pleaded for leniency they received follow-up yellow cards and were sent off. After the final whistle Tristan Stass pleaded with the referee for some sort of common sense but after initially receiving one caution he was quickly shown a second and also sent off. In State 5 news champion Somerville Eagles signed off on a league season to remember with a 5-1 drubbing of visitors Casey Panthers on Saturday. It was Somerville’s ninth straight win and it won the title by nine points over arch rival Old Mentonians. No prizes for guessing the scorers with Dave Greening notching a hattrick and Mark Pagliarulo a brace. Somerville now enters a play-off series to determine the best State 5 side in Victoria and it kicks off its campaign against State 5 East champion Waverley Wanderers this weekend. The winner goes into the grand final against the winner of the play-off between the State 5 North and State 5 West champions. Rosebud rounded off a season in which it established itself as a competitive outfit at this level by convincingly defeating Pakenham United 4-1 last weekend. Doubles to Chris Parry and Blake Hicks did the damage at Olympic Park. Rosebud has a catch-up match away to Tullamarine scheduled for next Saturday but looks set to forfeit. However it will play Wednesday’s night’s catch-up fixture against Aspendale Stingrays who drew 3-3 at home to Knox United on Saturday after twice leading by two goals. Aspendale scored through Nathan Barnett, Anthony Segavac and an own goal and its best were Kieran Hughes, Peter Dimopoulos and Patrick Diakogeorgiou. This week’s games: WEDNESDAY, 8pm: Aspendale Stingrays v Rosebud (Kingston Heath Soccer Complex). SATURDAY, 1pm: Somerville Eagles v Waverley Wanderers (Comets Stadium).

Peninsula boxer ready for Kombat By Stephen Taylor BLAIRGOWRIE boxer Jayde Mitchell is going into next weekend’s Kings of Kombat bout “without injury for the first time in years”. Since his previous fight in December he has fully recovered from elbow surgery and stem cell therapy to fix shoulder tears. The super middleweight nicknamed “The Matador” is confident of success against Ibrahim Tamba, of Tanzania, on the 10th anniversary

Kings of Kombat event. Their bout is second ranked among eight fights at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre, Albert Park, Saturday 14 September. Rated eighth in the world Mitchell regards this fight as a “tune up” after which he will undertake a five-fight deal with promoter Lynden Hosking and Fox Sports. All going well he will fight outdoors at Mornington Racecourse in November.

Rox The Castle flies under the radar HORSE RACING

By Ben Triandafillou THE small, yet brave, Balnarring-trained racehorse Rox The Castle has once again defeated a runner that many pegged as a “horse that couldn’t be beaten” at Sandown on Wednesday 4 September. The Kerry Edwards-trained galloper jumped as the second favourite behind the promising Phillip Stokes-trained Jumbo Ozaki who many expected to come out on top before heading towards bigger targets in the Spring. But, the little pocket rocket, Rox The Castle, didn’t lay down without a challenge and led from start to finish with the top weight of 59.5kg to score his first win for the preparation. Third-up and

nearing peak fitness, the fiveyear-old son of Castledale held a comfortable three-quarters of a length margin over the hyped horse, Jumbo Ozaki, who had every possible chance to run him down. The five-year-old son of Castledale was given a calm ride by Mornington-based jockey Jack Martin and notched up his sixth victory in Australia since moving from New Zealand. The victory added to Martin’s already successful run aboard Castledale progeny having claimed the Group Three Craven Plate at Randwick last year aboard the Peter Gelagotistrained Moss ‘N’ Dale. Despite being impatient in the mounting yard pre-race, trainer Kerry Edwards said her stable star should never be underesti-

mated. “Today was the worst he’s ever been at the races as far as his patience goes, so to see him go out and do that and carry that weight against the horse that everyone said ‘couldn’t be beaten’ was incredible,” Edwards said. “He’s done it before [by defeating the heavily-supported] Greyworm previously so he just defies logic sometimes. He’s a competitor, he’s just got that will to win.” While Rox The Castle doesn’t look all to different this preparation compared to his last preparation, Edwards said he’s really put on a bit of muscle where he has needed to. “He’s got strength about him this time in work,” she said. “Physically he just doesn’t look much different but he’s carrying

Cricketers seek funding MOOROODUC Cricket Club members are running a Go Fund Me page to raise funds for better training facilities. Much of their equipment, such as nets, have been in place since the late 1960s or early 70s and are in desperate need of repair. “We are not on council land which makes it difficult to get funding through the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council,” Moorooduc Cricket Club president Kenny Cremen said. “In saying this, however, the shire has been a great supporter of our club and does help out where they can. “We are on federal government land managed

through the Department of Environment Lands, Water and Planning, which makes it extremely hard to get the funding we require.” Moorooduc Cricket Club fields five senior teams and five junior teams in the Mornington Peninsula Cricket Association. “For a small, boutique-type club, we are very proud of the numbers we have,” Mr Cremen said. “This season it is looking highly likely that we will field a girls’ junior team for the first time in a very long time.” Those wishing to contribute should visit the club’s Facebook page to see the online link.

about 10 kgs more.” Since his run on Wednesday, Rox The Castle has had a quiet time of recovering with the run taking “a bit out of him” but Edwards said she couldn’t have been any happier with the way he felt at Balnarring beach on Monday morning. “This morning down at the beach, he just felt enormous,” she said. “After the race last week he had Thursday off and then Friday and Saturday he was very quiet but he’s back to where he needs to be now. “I reckon his last run will have him cherry ripe for his next assignment that we go to.” As long as he gains a start in the race, that next assignment will be the $140,000 Listed ‘The Sofitel’ handicap (1400m) at Flemington on Saturday 14 September.
