Plan to expand

Posted on 22 July 2019 | Comments Off on Plan to expand

“Ifwe put the best players we have available and see what we can do, Iwonder what we could do.”
Nanjing Night Net

That’s the question Griffith District Football Association (GDFA) secretaryAngelo Cirillo has posed to Griffith’s senior footballersas the GDFA looks at the potential of expanding the Riverina Rhinos model.

The GDFA held a forum on Wednesday night where members of thefootballing community had the chance to voice their views and opinions and the Riverina Rhinos was a hot topic.

“The consensus from the broader community–without having it cemented bya vote–is that the Rhinos platform that we’re discussing is a very, very good element for our game,” Cirillo said.

This year, the Rhinos fielded teams from under 13s to 16sbut in the future, there is the potential to field more age groups to set up a pathway for juniors to play at a higher level all the way through to seniors.

The plan is to field 13s, 14s, 16s, 18s, 20s and an all age men’s side.

The association is confident it can field sides in the20s and belowbut the senior team is where problems could occur.

“We have the junior bases butwe need an all age men’s team,” Cirillo said.

“Players in that demographic who say ‘what’s in it for me, I’mpast my prime’, wellyou’ve got an opportunity to play a higher level of football.That’s part one, challenge yourself if you’re still keen to have a crack.

“Part two is that you’re actually providing that pathway that we need from the rest of our players.

“Not first grade football today but these kids coming through in the next two, three, five years.

“That’s the sustainable platform that we want to be able to provide.”

Cirillo said the forum had achieved what it had set out to.

“Inrelation to the idea of a plan for football, that’s something that can literally not be picked up and put in place straight away,” he said.

“It’sa progressive channel that future association members can work towards developing.The document we prepared was nothing more than a foundation to open up that discussion.Ibelieve it’s delivered that because people are talking about football now,which is good.”

Cirillo saidhowever Griffith football moved forward, a sustainable and solid domestic construct was at the forefront of conversations.

Fortuna ready for Tyers titans in season closer

Posted on 20 June 2019 | Comments Off on Fortuna ready for Tyers titans in season closer

Fortuna 60 have pulled off the upset win of the season after defeating Traralgon City 2-1 on Sunday to book a grand final date against Tyers Lightning in the Latrobe Valley Soccer League’s women’s division.
Nanjing Night Net

The Roosters were aiming to do the treble after winning the league and Browne Huiser Cup but were unable to overcome their less fancied opponents.

The game was abandoned after a City player received a serious leg injury in the second half when Fortuna was ahead 2-1.

On Tuesday the league issued a statement confirming the incident had been investigated and “the match deemed to have been completed with a 2 goal to 1 victory recorded in favour of Fortuna”.

Fortuna coach Greg Shankland said while was not “the best way” for the game to finish he was proud of his team’s achievement.

“They’ve worked hard and the team we played last weekend hadn’t been beaten before; they were the league title holders the Browne Huiser Cup winners,” Shankland said.

“It’s a big ask, but they made it – they’ve developed quickly and the club itself is really, really with the way they came along.

“It’s just down to working for each other, commitment and morale.”

Fortuna managed to finish fourth this year and progressed to the final of the Browne Huiser Cup, where they lost 5-0 to the Roosters.

Tyers finished second this year after long being the team to beat in the women’s competition.

Shankland said his team faced an uphill battle to overcome the Lightning and said he hoped his team learned from the experience.

“They’re a very astute side, very well organised but they’ve been playing together for years,” he said.

“But we’re learning and whatever happens on the day the club and myself will be very proud of the girls.”

Tyers defeated Monash SC 2-0 to make the final and club president Jennifer Pridgeon said the team was peaking at the right time.

“I went and watched he game on Sunday and they put together a good 90 minutes on the weekend and they’ll use that as motivation to put that on the pitch again this week,” Pridgeon said.

“I suppose they had a bit of a lull during the season when their coach went overseas, but they’ve used the couple of losses and not finishing on top as motivation to get them through to this grand final.”

She said having experienced players such as Abbey Taylor, Renee Vidler and goalkeeper Stephanie Pridgeon spread across the field would help ease the team in the grand final.

Despite that, Pridgeon said the Lightning would not underestimate their foes.

“They realise that with Fortuna beating City that they shouldn’t take them lightly,” she said.

“That’s the message that (coach) Katie (Goodman) will get through to them this week at training.”

The game kicks off at Morwell’s Crinigan Reserve, Crinigan Road at 3pm.

Downsize to Mitre Street

Posted on 20 June 2019 | Comments Off on Downsize to Mitre Street

A CENTRALLY located, well-presented home is on offer for people looking to move on to the next phase of their lives.
Nanjing Night Net

Sitting high on Mitre Street, this four-bedroom home is set back from the road and completely shielded from view.

Appearances are deceptive here, as this home is much larger on the inside than the exterior of this property would suggest.

It offers a large open-plan living area, cleverly designed to appear as two separate living areas.

The spaces are separated by a cosy, modern kitchen.

The kitchen includes stone benchtops, a walk-in pantry, dishwasherand separate oven and stove top.

Three of the four bedrooms in this home feature built-in storage, including the master bedroom, which offers a generous walk-in-robe.

In addition to this, the master bedroom also offers a large ensuite with standing shower and a spa bath.

The design of the home isolates the master bedroom from most of the other bedrooms for a little added privacy.

This can be improved if the fourth, and smallest, bedroom is converted into a study, as the current owners have chosen to do.

The home also presents a main bathroom, with a three-way design,shower, bath, toilet,large vanity andtwo linen cupboards.

More storage is on offer in the laundry, which also provides another access to the rear yard.

One Agency Bestwick Real Estate’s Sheridan Bestwick said there are a number of benefits that come with this property.

These include its location, privacy, size andlow maintenance yard, making it suitable to variouskinds of owners.

“It would probably suit someone who is downsizing, maybe from a property outside of town,” Ms Bestwick said.

“It is such a rare find because it is so central and so big.”

In addition to all the features mentioned above, this property offers ducted heating, covered pergola,and double garage.

“There is really nothing that has to be done to it –just move in,” Ms Bestwick said.

This property is listedfor private sale, meaning interested partieswon’t need to compete against each otherfor it at an auction.

Anyone who would like to find out more about this property can contact One Agency Bestwick Real Estate on0423 380 182 or viewthe listing at梧桐夜网oneagencybathurst南京夜网419论坛.

There is also an open home scheduled for 11.30am on Saturday to give people an opportunity to walk through and get a feel for the property and its potential.

A life-saving act of kindess

Posted on 20 June 2019 | Comments Off on A life-saving act of kindess

UNEXPECTED GIFT: Ken Miller, 77, of Bidwill was surprised with a 10 litre water container after his street’s water supply was shut down on the eve of an important medical procedure. Picture: Simon BennettKEN Miller isunfortunate enough to have been diagnosed with bowelcancer –not once, but twice.
Nanjing Night Net

It seems fortune was on his side this time after an act of kindness that may have saved his life.

Last week the 77-year-old wason edge about his yearly colonoscopy.

However, Mr Miller was almost forced to miss his scheduled appointment at Mount Druitt Hospital after his street’s water supply was unexpectedly turned off on the eve of the check up.

Unable to take the critical 9pm preparation drink that flushes out his body, the Bidwill residentthought he would have to cancel his appointment.

He waited until midnight but with no water supply and all of the grocery stores closed, he was in a state of panic.

“Iwould have had to make all the arrangements again, new referrals –everything,” he said.

“It probably would have taken another two or three months [to schedule a new appointment].”

The life member of Mount Druitt Senior Citizens Club rushed down the street to ask Sydney Water employees when his water would be turned back on.

“They said there had been an emergency and it wouldn’t come back on until the next day. I told them, ‘I need water to take my preparation’.”

The workers gave Mr Miller three small bottles of water out of their truck, but he said it wasn’t enough.

“Later a chap from the water board came to my door with a 10 litre container of water. I was not expecting anything like that,” he said.

“He told me he had a friend who had been in a similar situation.It was such anice gesture and I couldn’t thank him enough.”

Dr Richard Hanney, a specialist at Mount Druitt Hospital, said the act of goodwill could have been a life-saver.

“We found a small tumour that had not yet become cancerous,” he said. “Had we rescheduled the appointment, it might have been too late by the next time we saw him.

“We can’t proceed with a colonoscopy without our patients following the proper preparation procedures.”

Mr Miller, whose mother passed from bowel cancer aged 51, was first diagnosed with the disease in1986 and relapsed in 2006.

“Iinherited a bad gene,” he said.

“I had my first one removed on October 161986. The doctors told me I was very lucky [to survive].Nearly 20 years to the day I was diagnosed again.”

Mr Miller said his four children have been scanned for the cancer gene and urged others to do the same.

“I never dreamtof gettingbowel cancer. Now I never miss a check up.”

Orions to face new-look Mountaineers

Posted on 20 June 2019 | Comments Off on Orions to face new-look Mountaineers

Sheffield will unveil three new recruits as it seeks to show the rest of the clubs that they have improved when the second round of the Greater Northern Cup is played on Saturday.
Nanjing Night Net

The Mountaineers travel to Devonport to take on their big city rivals in a game that always seems to contain some spice, no matter what the ladder positions are

Adding to the occasion will be debut of former Orions wicketkeeper Richard Cowlard for the visitors, while Mersey Valley recruits Curt Woolley and Denzil DeVries also get their first chance to impress.

Captain Gary Miles is also a welcome return for the Mountaineers after injury saw him spend plenty of time on the sidelines last year.

Comeback: Sheffield captain Gary Miles returns to the Mountaineers line-up for the game against Devonport after missing most of last season.

While Sheffield play its first game for the year, Devonport are coming off an impressive 109-run win over South Launceston last week.

They have made just the one change, with batsman Bruce Will set to miss a few weeks after a knee operation.

His spot has been taken by another run maker inBrent Mullett, who will alsotake up his customary spot behind the stumps.

After a disappointing outing at home in the opening round, Wynyard will be looking for redemption when it hosts Latrobe.

Kade Bellinger will make his debut for the Bluesand will also take over captaincy duties.

He is theonly change to side andreplaces veteran Brett Lee, who returns to the second grade side.

The Demons put together a strong performance last week to topple Riverside in round one, and predictably have named an unchanged team after getting solid contributions from every player.

The two grand finalists from last season, Ulverstone and Burnie clash at UCI Oval, and come into the game with differing form lines.

Led by a swashbuckling maiden century to Darren Banham, the Black Caps made a handy total against Launceston before keeping things tight with the ball to run out comfortable 59-run winners.

Selectors have been forced to make one change, with Steven Murfet replacing the unavailable Sam Murfitt.

The Hurricanes were barely in the hunt against Westbury as they attempted to chase down 231 last week, but have shown faith in the batting group for Saturday.

The only change is in the bowling stocks, withyoung paceman Emmitt Watkins returning from a knee reconstruction that saw him miss all of last season, and Shaun Redman going out.

After rain washed out the opening round of the second grade season last Sunday, players will hope to get away this Sunday when Devonport and Wynyard host Twenty20 gala days from 10.00am. The Orions are joined by Ulverstone and Latrobe, while the Blues entertain Sheffield and Burnie.
