Sporting- Notes. FOOTBALL. Mornington v. Frankston.-These clubs met for the last time this season at Mornington on Saturday last. Despite the very boisteroris state of the weather a large number of spectators were present to witness the game from start to finish. The teams were very slow in getting to work, and it was not until after four o'clock that the ball was kicked off by Bennett for Frankston, who, having lost the toss, had to kick against the wind, which a few minutes after starting blew with tremendous force, and accompanied by a cold heavy rain, lasted pretty well through the afternoon, and quite destroyed any chance of good individual play. Immediately on the ball being kicked off it was rushed down towards the Frankston end, where the Mornington men, assisted by the wind, experienced no great difficulty in keeping it. For some few minutes the play.was almost wholly confined to within a distance of 50 yards of the goal posts; and as nearly the full force of the two teams ...

News of the Day. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 5 October 1889
News of the Day. We regret being compelled to hold over a few items of intelligence. This being our first issue we have been somewhat rushed with copy, but have striven to give the most interesting matters that have transpired during the week. When we get into full swing, our readers may rely upon being fur. nished with news up to time of publi cation. Exception was taken, by the Morn ington correspondent, of one of the journals circulating within the County, to what he called the "assumption" by us of the name Mornington. We certainly claim a perfect right to use the name Mornington as part of the title of our journal. Although our printing and publishing office is, located at Frankston-a township within the County boundary-we in tend to equally and fully represent the other parts of the County. The Dock Laborers' strike, towards which Victoria subscribed, so hand, somely, has brought prominently under our notice the condition of the Poor of London. In another part of out paper we ...
