SCG appearance for Cobras Ocean Grove Voice

By Justin Flynn

A large group of local junior footballers and family members were lucky enough to step foot onto the hallowed turf of the Sydney Cricket Ground.

A total of 140 players and parents from Ocean Grove Collendina Cobras and Glebe Greyhounds got to do a lap of the SCG and then form a guard of honour for the Geelong Cats AFL players as they entered the playing field to take on the Sydney Swans.

The excursion was for local charity, Rivers Gift, which is the largest source of funding for sudden infant death syndrome research in Australia.

Glebe Greyhouds are based in the inner Sydney suburb of Glebe and came down to Ocean Grove last year for a match against the Cobras.

The Cobras returned the favour this year with two games against the Greyhounds.

The Greyhounds formed a guard of honour for the Swans players, while the Cobras enjoyed getting high-gives from the Cats players as they entered the SCG.

Rivers Gift general manager Karl Waddell says it will be massive to have the Greyhounds and Cobras bring in the Swans home game.

To have presence on the AFL stage is really big for us, Waddell said.

Weve built a charity from scratch and six and a half years on were going to have presence on a national football stage, which is just massive for us. Its great coverage and to have the young kids fundraising on our behalf and honouring our little man and our charity is really special.

The fundraising is the bread and butter. Its what keeps us driving our initiatives. Weve raised more than a million dollars in six and a half years and thats not with any government funding. Its all community-based charity-giving.

Rivers Gift was founded in 2011 after the passing of the son of Waddell and his wife Alex.

River Jak Adam was born in July of 2011 and passed away in his cot in November later that year.

His parents established Rivers Gift off their own bat and have since held a number of marquee fundraising events, invested in SIDS research and raised a wealth of awareness.

Nine a row for league leaders Ocean Grove Voice

By Mark Heenan

Barwon Heads won its ninth consecutive match over arch rivals Ocean Grove in a brutal Battle of the Bridge clash at Ray Menzies Memorial Oval on Saturday.

Final scores Barwon Heads 11.12 (78) defeated Ocean Grove 7.10 (52).

BFL ladder leader Barwon Heads (13-1) sealed the minor BFL premiership to be three games and percentage ahead of nearest rivals Anglesea (10-4) and Geelong Amateur (10-4).

The 26-point loss relegated Ocean Grove to fifth spot with an 8-6 record.

Players from both teams were left bloodied, bruised, concussed and suffered a spate of injuries.

Grubber captain James Linton suffered severe bleeding from the nose after a collision, Kieran McNally required stitches following a head clash and Matt Caldow sustained a first half concussion.

Wounded Seagull trio Sam Harris (knee), Michael Philp (knee) and playing co-coach Bobby Wallace (ribs) all went down.

Harris the most serious injury play was brought to halt in the first term after he was stretched off.

Sam Harris strained his medial ligament it is a shame for him to miss a few weeks now, Barwon Heads co-coach Mitch Herbison said after the match.

Herbison said it was a physical and tough contest.

Both teams will be pretty sore after that one, he said.

It was physical for four quarters, neither team sort of let up with their intensity it was a great contest.

It was a hot first term only three goals were scored, but the Grubbers rose to the occasion and matched the Seagulls intensity and led by four points at the first break.

Barwon Heads was in front at half time and three-quarter time.

Ocean Grove coach Paul Lynch commended both teams on their attack on the footy.

I thought we competed really well and the tackle pressure and all that was excellent and they (Barwon Heads) were too, Lynch said.

Other than on the scoreboard I thought it was pretty even contest.

It was a good standard of footy early.

Lynch admitted the Seagulls were more polished than Ocean Grove with its disposal after half time.

Single-handedly the difference was their ball use was better than our ball use that was the game in itself, he said.

We butchered the footy and they didnt.

Despite the loss, there were several encouraging signs for the Grubber players.

Key Ocean Grove defender Justin Carey, a former St Albans GFL player, won his match up on the dangerous Herbison, who was held goalless for only the second time in 2018.

I think Justins CV is as good as what Herbie probably is only that he is a little bit older, Lynch said.

Herbison, a multiple South Barwon GFL premiership player, declared Carey...

Club legends nominated Ocean Grove Voice

Drysdale Soccer Club has nominated not one, but two, of its stalwarts for the prestigious Viva Energy Club Legend award.

Drysdale Soccer Club has put two names forward Nicole Carter and Andrew Shears.

Nicole Carter has been the clubs secretary for two years and before that was a general committee member.

Nicole has also performed other roles amongst the community including being on the GRFC womens task force and also piloted the Female Friendly Clubs program working with FFV.

Nicole has been the clubs Division 1 captain for the past two years and was a runaway best and fairest last season.

Nicole played a major role in helping the club get new facilities in Drysdale itself after years of being football nomads. Sponsorship numbers have increased tenfold since Nicole came on board.

Andrew Shears has been involved with Drysdale Soccer Club for four years.

Shearsy looks after more than 260 players each year as the clubs registrar and is team manager for the two womens teams.

Andrew is the friendly guy who is always about the club and will have a chat with anyone. He makes everyone feel welcome and included and is huge ambassador for womens soccer in the Geelong region, always looking for opportunities to promote the game at a local level through media articles he writes and connections he has made in the game.

A perfect example of Andrews thoughtfulness is when he brought oranges to a womens game. One player had a skin condition on her hands, and Andrew knew this beforehand and had cut up oranges on toothpicks for that one player so she didnt miss out.

Nicole and Andrew will vie for $5000 each for themselves and Drysdale Soccer Club in Viva Energys 2018 Club Legend Award, which has a total prize pool of $50,000 for local clubs and their volunteers.
