    THE search has begun to find a new leader for the Koroit Cricket Club after Jamie McKenzie announced he will stand down as coach.

    At the club’s presentation night last Friday night, at the Commercial Hotel, McKenzie said football coaching commitments and the arrival of his new baby in June meant he would not have the time to coach but would continue on as a player.

    “I really enjoyed coaching and met a lot of good people at the club,” McKenzie said.

    “Even though the division two team didn’t have the success we would have liked we were competitive all season and there was improvement from a lot of players within the club.”

    McKenzie said the club now had some good depth with a strong group of players in division three as well as some promising juniors.

    He said the division two team had a good bowling attack with two top-order batsmen on the top of the recruiting wishlist.

    The presentation night saw Matthew Lynch a popular winner of the Peter Williams Club Champion award for his efforts with both bat and ball for the season.

    Opening batsman Mathew Sharman won the division three cricketer of the year award, while dynamic all-rounder Christian Francis was named the under 17 cricketer of the year.

    The James ‘Jim Bob’ Keane best clubman award was shared by Jimmy Langdon and Lissa Lathwell.

    Both the late Peter Williams and James Keane were respected past players of the club. Club president John Gleeson awarded his president’s trophy to Bob Shanahan.

  • NBN delay could affect Wimmera

    NATIONALBroadband Network Communications has revised its rollout targets after construction contractors progressed more slowly than forecast.
    Nanjing Night Net

    The optic fibre network in Horsham was due to start construction in November this year, but could be delayed by up to three months.

    NBN chief executive Mike Quigley said some of NBN’s construction contractors had progressed work more slowly than forecast.

    “We are accountable for the delay and are disappointed it has occurred,” he said.

    “The problem is, we are just not seeing the ramp up of construction workers on the ground that would be needed to deliver project targets.

    “This lack of mobilisation has led us to make the judgment call to re-forecast our end-of-year projections.”

    Wimmera Development Association executive director Jo Bourke said she was unsure whether the delay would affect the Wimmera.

    “We have NBN representatives in the region at the moment giving information sessions, so we will definitely be asking them what the impact will be,” she said.

    “The delay announced might only affect current construction and construction has not yet commenced in the region.

    “We are actively involved in the planning with NBN about the optic fibre rollout in Horsham and the fixed wireless services in other communities.

    “We are keen to get an understanding about the time frame.”

    Mrs Bourke said faster broadband would allow residents in the Wimmera to be part of a global network.

    “We need to see it as an opportunity and not a threat,” she said.

    Horsham Rural City Council chief executive Peter Brown said he would like to see the NBN set up in the Wimmera as soon as possible.

    He said it would be disappointing if the delays affected the region.

    “The fact that we have a place in the queue is still very good for the community,” he said.

    “The world has become a digital economy and society and the Wimmera needs to be able to move forward with everyone else.”

    Shadow Minister for Regional Communications Luke Hartsuyker said the delay was creating a digital divide for regional areas.

    “Regional Australia stands to benefit more than most from the rollout of high speed broadband,” he said.

    “Yet the NBN rollout is so far behind schedule, and so poorly targeted, that the digital divide separating regional communities from economic and social opportunity is growing wider and wider.”

    Mr Hartsuyker said while there was no specific information about Horsham, the experience around the country had been that construction took longer than forecast.

    “It is impossible to tell whether construction is likely to start as scheduled,” he said.

  • Court hears man bit police officer

    AN Orange man who allegedly bit a police officer on the arm several times after a violent altercation while trying to escape faced Orange Local Court on a string of charges on Monday, and was ordered to be taken to Bloomfield for a psychiatric assessment.
    Nanjing Night Net

    When Timothy Ah-See was escorted handcuffed into the dock he acknowledge three young women sitting in the back of the courtroom, blowing them a kiss and gesturing to them he needed money for cigarettes.

    Aboriginal Legal Aid solicitor Arjun Chhabra told relieving magistrate Michael Allen after speaking with his client in the cells at the court room he felt confident to make a section 33 application under the Mental Health Act to have his client mentally assessed.

    “At this stage I am not in a position to enter any pleas for my client,” Mr Chhabra said.

    Mr Allen ordered that if Ah-See was assessed at Bloomfield and did not fall under a section 33 of the Mental Health Act, he should be immediately returned to Orange court for the case against him to proceed.

    Mr Allen told the court he had papers before him that indicated Ah-See was already on bail to face court on April 2 for alleged stalking and intimidation, malicious damage and failing to appear in court while on bail, and was also scheduled to appear in court on May 27 on other charges of allegedly assaulting police and resisting police.

    When the issue of the apprehended violence order was addressed one of the young women stood up and called out to the magistrate.

    “I don’t want him to …,” she said before police prosecutor Andy Bobin swung around and pointed to the young woman.

    “You sit down and be quiet please,” he said.

    Police allege Ah-See was arrested at a unit in Dalton Street on Friday following an alleged domestic violence-related assault.

    While at the police station he told officers he felt unwell and was taken to Orange hospital where he was kept under observation until 6.30am when he was discharged.

    Police further allege that while Ah-See was being walked to the police truck in handcuffs a violent struggle took place with Ah-See breaking free and running into nearby bushes, before he was caught and walked back to the police vehicle.

    According to police Ah-See struggled violently and allegedly bit a constable several times on the left bicep.

    Another officer struck out with his police baton.

    As the struggle between officers and Ah-See continued a Taser was deployed.

    As police continued to move with Ah-See towards the police vehicle he broke free again and allegedly began throwing rocks at the officers. One of the officers then sprayed Ah-See with capsicum spray.

    Ah-See ran and jumped into a parked car but was retrieved by police, a security officer and a nurse who assisted the accused back into the emergency department where he was treated to counter the effects of the spray.

    Magistrate Michael Allen has ordered that if Timothy Ah-See doesn’t fall under a section 33 of the Mental Health Act he should return to Orange court for the case against him to proceed.

  • Former church youth leader to stand trial over allegations of sexual assault

    A FATHER and former church youth leader will fight allegations he sexually abused a local girl a number of times since she was 13 years old.
    Nanjing Night Net

    The 39-year-old married man, pleaded not guilty to a string of sexual assault charges at the Port Macquarie Local Court on Thursday, March 22.

    He was charged with one count of sexual intercourse with a child aged between 10 and 14; two counts of sexual intercourse with a child between 14 and 16 years of age; and two counts of indecent assault of a child under 16 years.

    His case has now been listed for callover at the District Court, Sydney Downing Centre on April 17, where a date for his trial will be decided.

    Some of the evidence against the accused includes a police-recorded phone conversation between the victim and accused, transcripts of interviews, text messages and handwritten letters to the accused.

    But the accused has denied ever having any sort of physical involvement with the victim.

    On August 29, 2012 he went voluntarily to the Port Macquarie police station and denied the allegations before him.

    Police said he had admitted to sending text messages of a sexual nature, but said he had done so because he was enjoying the attention of a younger female.

    The victim was said first to have met the accused at a church, at which the adult man was heavily involved.

    Police alleged the man first assaulted her when she was 13 years old at a social gathering.

    A statement of police facts tendered to the court said the accused reportedly had sent the victim sexually explicit text messages for a number of months .

    In January 2011, the young girl ceased contact with the accused because she was scared someone would find out.

    Later, he would ask reportedly to meet the victim in secret at a particular park in Port Macquarie.

    There, allegedly, he assaulted the victim sexually, professing his love for the minor, and elling her he wanted to leave his wife:

    “I am getting divorced so I can be with you,” he said, allegedly.

    In March, 2012 the girl’s mother found three notebooks with unfinished letters to the accused detailing the alleged offences.

    The mother reported this at the Port Macquarie police station.

    In June, the victim gave a statement at the station, participating later in a video walk-through of the incident at the park.

    Under provisions of a surveillance device warrant, police officers recorded a telephone conversation between the victim and the accused in August 2012, in which the accused allegedly made certain admission to the offences.

    At the Port Macquarie police station in August 2012, the accused told officers the allegations against him were false.

    Reportedly, he admitted to going to the social gathering where the first alleged offence took place.

    However, he denied any assault took place there.

    He also denied ever meeting the victim at the park, saying he had never heard of the location, nor had he ever been there.

    A magistrate ordered the man’s bail be disposed of.

  • Future stars warm up for winter

    ORANGE Hawks has narrowly missed out on claiming the CYMS under 18s knockout, going down to Bathurst Panthers 9-0 in the final last Sunday
    Nanjing Night Net

    The closely fought decider win was the men in black’s fourth straight under 18s knockout crown, with the Panthers outfit recovering from an early 16-12 defeat against Oberon to take out the 2013 crown over the two blues.

    “I wasn’t too worried about the final score,” Hawks coach Jared Brodrick said.

    “It was a long day for the boys and both teams were out on their feet. We were down to one reserve.”

    But the positive results earlier in the day gave Brodrick plenty to smile about.

    Hawks accounted for Blayney 18-6 in their first clash before defeating CYMS 24-6 in the second round to progress through to the semi-final.

    There, Hawks knocked over perennial under 18s powerhouse and last year’s Group 10 premiers Bathurst St Pat’s 24-16.

    The two blues mentor said all the signs were positive for 2013.

    “We were missing a few blokes as well. It’s largely the same side as last season but we’ve picked up a few good forwards from last year’s under 16s. They all go to school together and clicked really well on the weekend,” Brodrick said.

    CYMS used the home knockout as a means to trial a number of players and kick start its 2013 campaign.

    Lock Cody Lang shone while five-eighth and 2012 Western Rams representative Jarrod Robbins stood tall in an otherwise lacklustre showing from the green and golds’ juniors.

    CYMS went down 16-0 to St Pat’s in game one before losing to Hawks in the second round.

    Still, CYMS coach Kurt Beahan was optimistic about his side’s hope this winter, adding a top four berth was within reach.

    “Every team there looked beatable,” he said.

    “I wasn’t all that impressed with my team in the first game, but there was massive improvement in the second game from us. “We had five fairly good players out with injury and cricket and what not, but that’s all over now and our focus is on round one.”

  • Bolding in stellar form as women go off-road

    Motorcycles
    Nanjing Night Net

    A RECORD field of 255 took to the custom Traralgon motocross-bush hybrid circuit over the weekend for rounds one and two of the 2013 Yamaha Victorian Off-Road Championships, where Daniel Milner dominated the senior division.

    The 2012 Australian Four-Day Enduro champion continued his stellar run of form by taking out the pro class first round on Saturday ahead of Alex Stephenson and Daniel Sanders, a result he mirrored in round two on Sunday.

    With an influx in female participation in motorsport, the off-road championships featured a dedicated women’s division for the first time in Traralgon.

    Wonthaggi’s Charlotte Bolding claimed the overall victory in the women’s class in her comeback race.

    Traditionally a motocross competitor, Bolding won round one on Saturday over Rebecca Lipsett and Kellie Catanese.

    A second place on Sunday sealed a spectacular weekend for Bolding, while Tyla Jones took the second round win with Kellie Catanese again in third.

    After a year off due to injury, Bolding was keen to test the recently renovated bushland course at Traralgon.

    “I thought I’d give off-road a go,” she said.

    “I’ve had 12 months off the bike, so it was pretty tough to come back to; It was challenging but I enjoyed it.”

    With local Country Fire Authority brigades on hand to keep dust down and provide much needed moisture to the dirt track, race co-ordinator Steve Mason said the course and off-road format were hits among the entire field.

    “Everyone loved the new bit (bush track) obviously it chewed out a bit as it does with that many riders… everyone had a smile on their face,” he said.

    “One loop was hard and technical and the other one flowed a bit better because you had those two different types of track.

    “Everyone liked the concept of starting together on the motocross track… so it was really good.”

    Traralgon 12 year-old Nick Graham claimed a class second place in his first off-road event on Saturday in a standout local performance.

    Round three of the Victorian Off-Road Championships will be a junior sprint event in Dandenong next month.

  • John asks: R U OK?

    WHEN a close friend pleaded with John Ward (pictured) to “for God’s sake, do something”, the local farmer launched his own personal crusade against mental illness in rural areas.
    Nanjing Night Net

    This week, a sign on the side of the road at Coleambally will be officially unveiled to support Mr Ward’s campaign and to stop the high rate of suicide among farmers.

    He hopes the joint initiative between the NSW Farmers Federation and R U OK Foundation will get people talking.

    Situated on the Kidman Way and bearing the message “Coleambally 8 R U OKs, Jerilderie 76 R U OKs”, Mr Ward said the sign will be aimed at raising awareness of an issue that has claimed too many lives across the region.

    “I realised I had the ability to come in and say ‘g’day, how are you going?’ to people and they’d feel comfortable with me,” Mr Ward said.

    “I wanted to use that talent to make something happen, to be useful to the community.”

    Mr Ward has since joined the R U OK? Foundation and become an ambassador to spread the message across the region and rural Australia.

    “We want to tell people where to go and how to get help if they need it,” he said.

    “I’ve tried to turn mental illness into something palatable that people can talk about.”

    The sign was inspired by a roadside placard Mr Ward saw in Tasmania which read “We fight suicide in Tasmania” – a sign the farmer said “hit me like a tonne of bricks”.

    In future, Mr Ward hopes to organise a fundraising dinner for the foundation.

    He also wants to establish a “farm camp” which would provide a supervised rural environment where those who need help could escape the pressure, sit around a campfire and talk in a way they felt comfortable.

    “This is about making people talk about it and feel OK about it,” Mr Ward said.

    “If you can get people to talk about it, it breaks down the polarisation and stigmatism.”

    The R U OK? Foundation encourages people to ask others the question in the hope that meaningful conversations could help any person experiencing a problem to feel better supported and less vulnerable to a crisis or suicide death.

  • TAC Cup: Jets’ costly errors help fuel Dragons’ win

    THE Western Jets were made to pay for untidy football at certain times in their 23-point loss to Sandringham Dragons in the TAC Cup season opener at Visy Park on Sunday.
    Nanjing Night Net

    The Jets’ endeavour could not be faulted and there were early periods when they even dominated the contest.

    However, careless errors at crucial times gave the Dragons the ascendancy and they needed no second invitation to run away with the game.

    “It was not the start we were looking for,” Jets region manager Shane Sexton said.

    “But there were positives in the game that we can take away.

    “We can go away and work on a few things and be better because of it.

    “We just made too many mistakes and you can put it down to that. Decisions with the ball and without the ball . . . some of them were pretty costly.”

    The Jets, coached by Torin Baker for the first time, made all the early running.

    A goal to Omar Abou-Zeid and two more to Harrison King had them right on top.

    King’s early dominance had alarm bells ringing in the Dragons’ coaches box.

    “His first half was excellent and he had a good game,” Sexton said. “He plays predominantly as a lead-up forward, really good overhead and his practice matches have all been good.

    “They put the clamps on him after half-time and that made it a bit more difficult for him.”

    The Jets had nothing to show for their fast start, trailing by five points at the first break.

    The second term was an anomaly in the match as the Dragons booted five of the six goals for the quarter to take a 34-point lead into half-time.

    Try as they might, the Jets could not erode the hefty deficit, with the 30-minute second quarter black-out ultimately costing the Jets.

    Daniel O’Leary was named best on ground for the Jets. The courageous back pocket did what his coaches asked of him.

    “Danny’s a terrific kid, a real competitor,” Sexton said.

    “You can trust him to give it 100 per cent and cover off his man. He was pretty solid today without a doubt.”

    The will-o’-the-wisp Mitch Norton made an impressive debut at the level.

    The lightly-built forward pocket snared two goals to show his smarts near the big sticks.

    “He’s a very clever player, exhibits a lot of class,” Sexton said.

    Ruckman Duom Dawam got his hands on the ball first with regularity at the bounce-downs, while onballer Jake Greiser did a lot of fishing beneath the packs to offer first use to the outside runners.

    The Jets are eager to avoid a repeat of last year’s slow start to the season and will be desperate to get into the winners’ circle against the Northern Knights in the early 10am game on Sunday at Visy Park.

    “It’s a big week next week,” Sexton said. “We don’t want to get left too far behind.”

    SCOREBOARD:

    Sandringham Dragons 16.9 (105) d Western Jets 12.10 (82).

    Western Jets — goals: H. King 3, P. Manivong, M. Norton 2, O. Abou-Zeid, D. Burton, M. Orr, B. Ferrari, J. Greiser. Best: D. O’Leary, M. Norton, H. King, J. Greiser, D. Iaccarino, B. Bewley.

  • WDCA: Falcons’ English import leads charge

    Summer stunner: English import Andrew Ford was a revelation for Wyndhamvale. Picture: Darren HoweA MONTH into the season, Wyndhamvale had a lousy nine points, sat third-last and had lost key all-rounder Trent Lawford to Premier Cricket.
    Nanjing Night Net

    Lawford was a big loss; the leader of the pack moved to North Melbourne and was an immediate sensation with 538 runs and 33 wickets in the first XI.

    The Falcons were on the tips of no one’s tongue when it came to finals talk.

    Fast forward five months and the Falcons are perched atop the Williamstown and District Cricket Association A1 turf premiership dais for the first time since 2008-09.

    “No one expected us to play finals after four or five rounds,” all-rounder Ryan Radford told the Weekly.

    “To go on and win it, it’s a team thing, you’re pretty happy with that sort of stuff. It’s a good feeling.”

    The Falcons completed the fairytale with a 219-run victory over minor premiers Williamstown Imperials in a six-day grand final at Bryan Martyn Oval.

    They controlled the match from the outset to give the Imps a second consecutive loss.

    “It wasn’t as easy as the scoreboard looks,” Radford said. “We had to bowl pretty well.”

    Victory was set up with a century to the Falcons’ overseas import Andrew Ford, who made 112 and found a partner-in-crime in Lee Veal (62) as the Falcons made 244 in the first dig.

    “He was inspirational on day one,” Radford said of man-of-the-match Ford. “Getting him into the team was probably the turning point in the season.”

    The Imperials found it hard to get out of first gear, reaching 159 and giving the Falcons an 85-run lead.

    In the second innings, the Falcons were 4-29 and in a spot of bother until a 150-run stand between Andrew Mundey (91) and Adam Moscatiello (59).

    “Their partnership took a lot of the pressure off us,” Radford said.

    The Imperials were set a massive 321 for victory but mustered just 112.

    Young quick Jake Styles left a trail of destruction with eight wickets in the innings and 11 for the match.

    Styles finished on 50 wickets for the season. “It’s a pretty big season for a 19-year-old,” Radford said. “He’s pretty sharp, but he’s carefree. He just runs in and bowls.”

  • CYMS beat pre-season Blues

    IT may have started with two “underwhelming” knockout performances, but Orange CYMS coach Mick Sullivan is more than happy with the way the green and golds bounced back to finish their 2013 pre-season campaign.
    Nanjing Night Net

    Folding under strong expectations with round one exits in both the West Wyalong and the Bathurst knockouts, Sullivan’s men went head-to-head with a strong Queanbeyan Blues line-up on Saturday and came out on top 38-26 at Waratahs Sportsground.

    And, more pleasingly for Sullivan, his red-hot backline clicked.

    Playing in the centres, gun recruits Ali Beale and Ben McAlpine shone while halves Warick Colley and Dom Maley steered the ship in CYMS’ most complete trial effort yet.

    Sullivan said he was stoked with the win and labelled his squad ready for the round one derby versus Orange Hawks in 10 days.

    “We looked sharp and for the first time our backline got a bit of depth about it. I’m confident if we maintain that depth sides are going to find us pretty tough to handle this season starting with round one,” Sullivan said.

    Sullivan said it was tough to gauge where his side stood following the knockout losses to the Bidgee Hurricanes in West Wyalong and rivals Hawks in Bathurst.

    However, Sullivan was only ever concerned about how his team shaped up in its first full match.

    “Obviously it has been a bit underwhelming, a few people probably expected us to go a bit better than we did in the shorter format but I was only worried about our first 80-minute hit-out,” the premiership-winning captain-coach said.

    “We went into the game with a squad of 18 and Sarge (Brett Sargent) picked up an AC dislocation and we lost Josh Nixon after about 10 minutes, but with 16 we were still able to get over the top of a pretty big Queanbeyan side.”

    Sargent will be sidelined with his shoulder injury for close to six weeks while Nixon’s departure in the trial was simply precautionary.

    Sullivan expected the Blayney junior to be ready for round one.

    The former NRL rake said however pleasing it was to see his backline fire, the ability of his forward pack to roll through the middle of the ruck was crucial in 2013.

    “We’ll have Ryan Prevett ready for round one, and Des Knight has been strong for us too,” Sullivan said, not likely to return from a hamstring injury until round three of the Group 10 premier league season.

    “I was impressed with Des last year. He was one of the few props we had to step up against Lithgow. Young Cameron Jones got through a heap of work too. We’ll probably go into round one with the same side.”
