Football in full flourish on Good Friday

Gisborne Football Netball Club began its 2015 Bendigo Football Netball League campaign on Good Friday after taking on cross-town rival, Kyneton, in the Calder Clash. It was a spectacular autumn day as Gisborne and Kyneton battled it out on a near peak condition Gardiner Reserve in front of a massive Good Friday crowd. The winner would earn a perfect start to the season and major bragging rights for the two Macedon Ranges teams in the Bendigo Football Netball League.

The day began with Under 18s. The Bulldogs came out on top with an emphatic 147-point win over the Tigers, 26.18 (173) to 4.3 (27). A tremendous five-goal performance from debutant, Tom Cassidy, allowed the Bulldogs to be outright winners in what was a fantastic performance. The Bulldogs look set to push for a third grand final appearance in as many years. Other notable performers from the Bulldogs included Trent Crosbie, Jake Conolan and Tyson Lever, in what was his first outing in the red white and blue.

The Dogs captured their second win for the day in the Reserves, running out 32-point winners over the Tigers 10.7 (67) to 5.5 (35). Kane Grbac starred for the Dogs in a best-on-ground performance, while Callan Haynes returned from injury with three goals in a good display.

A young Gisborne Senior outfit looked to make it three from three and take full bragging rights in the Calder Clash against a revamped Kyneton side. Gisborne went into the contest full of confidence. Kyneton had not won at the Gardiner Reserve since 2001.

A seven-goal game from 2014 best and fairest, Ben Weightman, and five-goal performance from off-season recruit and former Essendon rookie-listed player, Rhys Magin, allowed Kyneton to break a 14-year drought and run out 60-point winners, 19.11 (125) to 10.5 (65). This was one of Kyneton’s best performances in recent memory. Notable performances from Ben Sonagen, Shannon Greetham and captain Casey Summerfield was not enough to stop the oncoming Tiger onslaught in what was an otherwise dismal and un-Gisborne like performance.

Gisborne takes on Maryborough at home this Saturday in front of another big crowd.

Paint up for Youth Week

THE Leeton Youth Committee will host a blacklightrave as part of its National Youth Week celebrations.

To be held next weekend, the dance party will bring together young people to shine bright with bodypaint under blacklights.

Leeton Shire Council communityservicesofficer and youth committee facilitatorJackson Gomansaid theconcept was based on an event held by the Yanco-Wamoon Women’s Auxiliary

“Acouple of Leeton Youth Committee members attended and others had heard about it,” Jackson said.

“They thought it was a good event and a really easy event to kick-start the year.”

The blacklight rave concept is a simple one.

“You justcome along dressed in white clothes,” Jackson said. “We’ll have a paint tent, you get covered in paint and then head out onto the dance floor.

“We have ordered proper face and body paint.”

The clothing and paint will show up even brighter under blacklight.

Although the paint is supposed to wash out, it is recommended young people wear older white clothes as there can be no guarantee it will come out.

Music will be provided by DJ Cheese (Anthony Lucchese), which was again the choice of committee members, whileMadonna Placeis central for young people to get to and from.

Leeton Youth Committee was originallyformed to help develop a skate park for the town.It is a sub-committee of council and open for any young people to join.

“The last few meetings we’ve averaged about 12 people,” Jackson said.”There’s a lot of new faces and fresh ideas.

“Looking further ahead at events for the year, we aim to do one per school term.

“This one had to occur during school holidays because that’s when Youth Week is, but we also want to engage the StFrancis and Yanco Ag boarders.”

The NSW governmentprovided agrant for the LeetonYouth Week event, matched by council.

Theblacklight rave will be held at Madonna Place next Friday, April 17, from 6pm to 10pm.

Free and open to young people aged 12 to 25, it is a drug and alcohol-free event.

Fresh-faced students shape up

NEW FACES: Josh Gemmell is one of just a handful of returning regular first grade players for CSU in this new Central West Rugby season as they take on Cowra Eagles at home tomorrow. Photo: CHRIS SEABROOK 081614csu3RUGBY UNION

CENTRAL West Rugby is back at Charles Sturt University with the students looking to turn the tables against the odds on a visiting Cowra Eagles team tomorrow at University Oval.

The students are notoriously the most difficult side to get a read on in the pre-season due to the high player turnover, but even by CSU’s standards it’s going to be tough to overcome.

This season marks some of the biggest losses of recent years with Central West representative Hugh Medway’s departure, plus Sam Roberson, Jack Garrad and Tom Keft all gone.

Returning coach James McLaren says it’s yet another period of uncertainty among the CSU club when it comes to its first grade line up.

“Numbers wise we’re looking great. It’s a bit like a box of chocolates at the start of the year, like it always has been. We won’t be getting a good idea of a finalised first grade until somewhere like five weeks in,” he said.

“Obviously there’s some big losses to fill. A lot of our guys have stepped up. The maturity levels have really improved over the past few years and everyone is really keen to go. It’s going to be hard to fill in the likes of Hugh and Sam Roberson but there’s players ready to give it a go.”

CSU were wiped off the park in last season’s opener against Cowra when they went down 61-5.

The next time the two teams met it was the home side CSU who threw the game away when poor discipline let Cowra back into the match to allow them a 30-22 win.

With two forgettable performances against the Eagles, McLaren and his team will be hoping to write a happier script this time around.

If that’s going to be the case the students are going to have to do so with a very new team.

He estimates that there may be up to five players left who played consistent first grade rugby last season.

Being the opening round it’s difficult still for McLaren to size up his own team, let alone the competition, but says focusing on wins and losses remains the wrong attitude for the students.

“We’ve been working on our defensive structure. I’m looking for aggression and commitment at the breakdown … Our colts are looking really big, which bodes well for us down the track,” he said.

“We still lack that bit of height and size up front.

“We’ve got to be realistic about what our win-loss ratio could end up like, but hopefully we can always be among it and when we get the ball to make sure we make the most of it. We just need to try and play some honest rugby.

“Hopefully down the road we can have some guys join us with that bit of extra experience. You never know what could happen.”

The opening whistle will blow at University Oval at 3.20pm tomorrow.

CSU: 1 Michael Coates, 2 Anthony Nougher, 3 Jack McKenna, 4 Dom Waugh, 5 Charlie McIntosh, 6 Tom Greenway, 7 Michael Thompson, 8 Jordan Masman, 9 Josh Gemmel, 10 Cam Backhouse, 11 Will Sears, 12 Blake Ridges (c), 13 Maui Moody, 14 Fraser McCormack, 15 James Tooth.

Parents are driving hope after toddler tragedy

HAPPIER TIMES: Georgina Cockburn, right, with sisters (from left) Elizabeth, Charlotte and Anna, just months before she was killed.IT’S a moment permanently seared on the psyche of Emma and Peter Cockburn, the moment they lost their little girl to a freak driveway accident.

In April 2011, Mr Cockburn was returning from work to his Young homewhen he struck and killed his 15-month-old daughter Georgina, who was playing on the floor of the garage.

“We don’t know how the garage door came to be open that day or why she was in there…she was probably just going to see her dad,” Mrs Cockburn said.The incident plunged the coupleinto unthinkable grief and set them on a mission to ensure other parents were not put inthe same position.

Barely a year after Georgina’s death, the Georgina Josephine Foundation was born, aimed at raising awareness about the dangers of low-speed vehiclerun overs.The Cockburns speak at special events, hold fundraisers andact as an emotional pillar for parents thrust into the same position.“Whenever I hear of a driveway accident, I send an information package to parents to let them know our group is out there,” Mrs Cockburn said.

THE Moss Vale Dragons under-7s players had an up close NRL experience on Monday.

The juniors had an opportunity to run on ANZ Stadium ahead of the NRL match between Parramatta Eels and Wests Tigers.

Despite poor weather conditions, the Dragons played a match against the Hills District.

The young Highlanders were then invited to form a guard of honour and high-five the Eels and Tigers NRL players as they ran on to the field.

Moss Vale under-7s coach Andrew Crimmins said it was a great opportunity for his team.

“The kids loved it,” he said.

“We only had nine players, but it was a bit of fun for them and they were in the tunnel before the (NRL) game.”

The Dragons were invited to the game as part of the For the Farmers campaign.

The Parramatta club partnered with NSW Farmers Association and Country Rugby League (CRL) to celebrate the contribution farmers make to the community.

Monday’s NRL match was won by the Tigers, which overcame a 6-4 deficit at half time to win 22-6.

Moss Vale’s players will return to the field this weekend when the Group 6 CRL junior competition resumes after the Easter break.

Lead bullets find poignant use

KIND ACT: Trentham artist Ron Davis at work in his studio. Picture: CONTRIBUTED

A TRENTHAM artist is transformingrecycled lead bullets used by former soldiersintohandmade poppies to raise money for the RSL.

The idea came asRonDavis was walking through the forest in Kyneton and stumbledacross a rifle range that dated back to 1906.

As he got closer, he noticed tinybullets sticking up from the ground.

“The range was usedby the Light Horse Brigade andVolunteer Defence Corps so I wanted to make something meaningful out of their contribution,”he said.

“I’ve been collecting them for four years and it’s turned out to be one of the most powerful small pieces of artwork I’ve ever created.”

The project holds personal significance for him, with his grandad serving in World War II in the Battle of the River Plate.

“These guys gave us their lives and the lead bullet says a lot,” he said.

“Themilitary and police still carry them and they ultimatelyprotectour shores.

“I want toget that message across.”

Mr Davis has a background in lead roofing and has worked on many historic buildings in London.

He has been recycling scrap lead into works of art for many years.

“I constantly heard bad press about lead, but if itwasn’t for lead, the world would stop,” he said.

“Every moving vehicle is runby a lead battery and it’sperfectly safe.”

The poppies are on sale from Trentham Newsagent, or can be purchased by contacting Mr Davis on0424 800 060.

He will make 303 poppies, representing the .303 lead bullets used in the project; he hopes to raise $6000.

Read MrDavis’poem about the lead bullet project here:

Fired from a rifle, a gun they sound

fly through the air, some fall to the ground

covered in soil and grass they lay

100 years we remember, our heroes this day

Now rise the bullets recycled from the past

A beautiful poppy that will ever last
