FOOTBALL. PENINSULA ASSOCIATION SOMERVILLE v. MORNINGTON The above teams met at Somerville on Saturday for the third time this season. -As the clubs are each doing their utmost to try to get in the first f four, it was expected that both 1 would have their best eighteens in the 1 field, but it was not the case, as Morn legton had two of their cracks out in N. McArthur and F. Harrap, while Somerville were without West, McLaurin, W. and F. Thornell, and had to put in' four subs. -omerville won the tlos, and kicked with the wind. The game was very evenly contested, Mornington defending well, but the Somerville team worked hard, and Lynch, from a nice mark, kicked first points for the home team. On the kick-off a free to Monk resulted in I F. Murray kicking first goal fur the locals. Off again, Moruington rushed the ball forward, where Eickie, putting in good..work, got the ball, and transferred play. In the second quarter Mornington, having the wind, did not make the best use of it, on...

NOTES ON THE MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 22 July 1911
NOTES ON THE MATCH. Somerville-Mornington matbch, an exciting game, Somerville winning by one point only, the same margin ' that they beat Mornington by in the first game of the year. Mornington had a weak team, being without Harrap, Sanderson, N. MeAr thur, Campbell, S. Garlick and Gib eon. ,?Somervili also haid several of ;.their beae men out, and their all-round play just got them home winners by a point. 'Billy' Monk was largely responsible for Somerville's vietory on Saturday, and is one of the best rovers on the Peninsula. Murray (forward) was Somerville' next beat man, gebting four goals, and marking well all day. Vann was reliable in the ruok, where Eickie also played a solid game. Griffith was uneful, both forward and back, but the high wind "blowing in the first half made the passing very unreliable. P. Thornell, Potts and Harry Firtb all showed fair form. Clydesdale was Mornington's best man, and besides kieking and marking well all through, gotj Mornington's first two go...

Ragged Boys' Home. CONCERT AT FRANKSTON. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 29 July 1911
Ragged Boys' nome..:. CONCERT AT FRANKSTON. 'Thelarge attendance at the con cert held on Saturday night in the Frankston Mechanics' in aid of the Ragged Boys' Home at Frankston forcibly illustrated the sympathy the public had for the movement. The hall was crowded, with the re sult that the finances were greatly augmented, and there will remain a credit balance of over £13,. a most satisfactory state of affairs. This amount no doubt will be greatly appreciated by the little inmates of the Home, as .will also the efforts of the promoters (Messrs W. Pettit and J. B. Jolly) and the response made by the public. Al though several of the advertised performers were unavoidably pre vented from appearing, the : gramme put forward was an cxe-' lent one, being generally considered as one of the best yet put before a local audience. Leading Mel bourne professional talent took part, and the localt a.1 u'..-- TI credit to themselves, and, as Mr Jolly stated, whilst thanking the performers, 'fully...

A Popular Post Mistress. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 29 July 1911
A Popular Post Mistress. The Dromana post office has for some years been, under the capable management of Miss O'Connor, amid when the residents learnt lately that she proposed taking an exten ded holiday, they deemed it a fitt ing opportunity of expressing to her their thanks for her unfailing courtesy and kindness. That Miss O'Connor's popularity is not con fined to Dromana only was very evident by the large number of dis trict adults and young people who assembled at the Dromana Mecha nics' Institute on Tuesday night. The hall had been tastefully deco rated by some of the ladies, and looked very brilliant with its clus ters of ferns and winter flowers. Games were indulged in by the younger members, and opportunity was given between the various items of the programme for social intercourse. Miss V. Rudduck was indefatir, .bl- in her efforts to make the evening a pleasant one for all. The singing of Mrs Ricketts, Mrs Brindle, Mrs Wyatt, Miss Kefford and Messrs ?Tya t and Wilson add...
Mornington Tennis Club. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 29 July 1911
Mornington Tennis Club. On Saturday last members of the Mornington Tennis Club spent a very pleasant day at " Ellerelie," at the kind invitation of MIr and Mrs A. Itutter Clarko. The gentlemen ar rived in the forenoon and engaged in a match against the "UIllerslie" repre sentatives, who were all too strong for the alornington players. The visitors, however, enjoyed the match just as much as if they had been victorious. They were vanquished, but also en lightened by the magnificent play of the pairs representing " Ellerslie" Messrs C'arke and Outhwaite, and Messrs Kiddle and Hudson, the former pair being easy vietors against both hlornington's pairs-Messrs Grover and Ferber, and Messrs Barrett and Tait. The latter of the home team's pairs, however, succumbed to the herioc efforts of Messrs Grover and Ferber, but managed to completely annihilate Messrs Barrett and Tait. The scores are much better unpub lished, sufice it to ray that " Ellers lie " romped home in ' hollow' fashion. So m...
FOOTBALL. PENINSULA ASSOCIATION SOMERVILLE v. FRANKSTON. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 29 July 1911
.FOOTBALL. PENINSULA ASSOCIATION SOMERVILLE v. FRANKSTON. These teams met at Frankston on Saturday, when, after a rather uninteresting game, Frankston proved winners by 29 points. An unsatisfactory hitch occurred througn the umpire appointed not putting in an appearance. This has happened this season in two of the three games played between Franketon and Somerville, and is a matter that should receive the attention of the Association. Three umpires officiated at various times during the game, and though each did his best, it was neither satis to the players, spectators, nor the umpires themselves. Mr W. Pet tit umpired the first quarter, f r K. Webb the second, and Mr Floyd the latter half of the match. The ground was slippery and water lay abou in various ilaces after the rain during the week, and as . a result the ball was heavy and difficult to handle. Somerville started off very well, and soon scored a goal through the agency of Thornell.and Griffeth also scored a sixer. In this...
