WITH a keen interest in the
history of the Fish Creek
Football Netball Club since it
joined the Alberton League 63
years ago, Fish Creek resident
Jack Charlton has compiled
what he has called the Fish
Creek Football Netball Club
1953 – 2015 Wall of Fame.
The club has a total of 41 football
premierships against its name.
Seventeen Senior teams have won
premierships, eight Seconds, nine Thirds
and eight Fourths.
Leading the list of the club’s premier-
ship coaches with six flags to his credit is
Not far behind Dunstan is J. Ryan
with five followed by I. Salmon and
B. Graham (two) and A. Waters and B.
With 234 consecutive games and 11
premierships appearances, A. Kerr is rec-
ognised for stand out service as a foot-
baller at the club.
N. Buckland as a footballer, goal um-
pire, committee member and for ground
facilities, and A. Kerr as a footballer,
time keeper, committee member and
for ground facilities have both given 60
years to the club.
Fish Creek has produced 10 Alber-
ton League best and fairest players: R.
Standfield, J. Standfield, W. Whitworth,
N. Park, J. Fellows, N. Shaw, M. Living-
stone, B. Standfield, W. Wiederman and
Six of the club’s players have topped
the leagues goal kicking including A.
Young who in the year he attained the
award kicked over 100 goals.
The other players to have reached the
milestone are S. Bath (on four occasions),
R. Standfield (five) and R. McGannon, C.
Hams and L. Foster (one).
Several players have gone on from
Fish Creek to make names for themselves
on the AFL: G. Dunstan, I. Dunstan, I.
Salmon, G. Walpole, B. Standfield and
R. Smith played in a Collingwood
Thirds premiership side.
R. King and J. Ryan played for both
Victoria and West Australia.
Life membership of the Alberton
Football Netball League has been award-
ed to L. Synan and J. Charlton.
both in their 125th
year of football.
Fish Creek started the
match strongly and had most of
the play in the first 20 minutes.
Unfortunately for the
Kangas they couldn’t handle
the tricky little breeze and
could only manage two goals,
All of a sudden, Toora
kicked into gear and managed
to pile on five goals in a mat-
ter of minutes before the quar-
ter time siren.
The Magpies were trou-
bling the Fish Creek defend-
ers with their height in the
forward line with Manders
looking very classy with a
couple of early goals.
When Toora managed the
first goal of the second stanza
they had skipped to a 20 point
To Fish Creek’s credit its
midfield got back on top with
Cal Park being the main insti-
gator, while Ashley Snooks
was creative as well.
Jake Buckland was the
main focal point up front for
the Roos and when he slotted
through his fifth for the half,
Fish Creek had turned a 20
point deficit into a 22 point
half time lead.
The third quarter was
more of an arm wrestle with
Toora pushing numbers back
into the Fish Creek attack and
the Kangas had to be very pa-
tient with their ball use.
Griffin was winning
plenty of possessions for the
Magpies but the Fish Creek
defence was holding firm as
Toora could only manage one
for the term.
A 34 point lead and kick-
ing to the scoring end left the
Creekers feeling fairly com-
fortable coming into the final
Ethan Park and Jayden At-
tard had had a very entertain-
ing battle all day with class
oozing from both players.
Park had taken the points
on the day but he could only
watch as Attard danced his
way through some hapless
defenders and kick a fantastic
long goal on his left foot mid-
way through the final term.
The term belonged to Fish
Creek however with seven
goals to Toora’s two in a

it a whole new ball game.
The first training session on Sunday, May 1
coincided with a rare event, rain.
That may explain why only 13 of the 50
honoured by being named for the squad turned
up for that training session.
An unwanted frustration, though, for the
coach who suspected that some players invited
to be on the squad weren’t informed by their
club that a training was on.
Mr Lafferty said, “Last year’s interleague
footballers couldn’t speak highly enough of the

Fish Creek too strong
• Toora v Fish Creek
• ALLIES v Phillip island
ful May day greeted
the players as Toora
tackled Fish Creek
Justin Smith was a tough
match up for Toora and he
finished with five goals, while
Brent Cooper was able to get
on the end of some good de-
liveries and slot through four
of his own.
It was certainly another
from the Magpies and they
will win a number of games
as the year progresses.
Fish Creek tackle MDU
next week in what looks to be
another fantastic chapter for
an old rivalry.
Top roo: Ash Snooks, caught but not trapped, and
named one of the best on ground, is always a reli-
able strength of the Fish Creek side.
In play: captain Cal Park is another Fish Creek
player who is impossible to subdue.
Fish Creek not minnows
Bulldogs blunder against Allies
ALLIES hoped to
stop the 11 years of
losses and also stay
in touch with the top
six when it went up
against Phillip Island
The return of Justin and
Ryan Marriott, Max Homer
and Will Knox added to the
midfield and half backlines.
Inside thirty seconds Phillip
Island had a goal on the board
but from that point on the
home side took control.
Strong work in the middle
by Ben Mayers and Justin Mar-
riott enabled the Allies to an-
swer via Ben Doran. Moments
later Mayers and Jim Phillips
teamed up to fire the ball wide
and Dan Batson ensured their
second was on the board.
For the next fifteen min-
utes the home side peppered
the forward line. Players ran
hard and crashed the packs
to set up goals. Cambridge,
Anthony Sigeti and Phillips
crashed through the packs to
put the side up seven goals
nearing quarter time.
The Allies started the sec-
ond term as it ended the first.
Batson and Max Homer com-
bined to put the ball deep into
attack. A free on the boundary
to Brandan Nolan enabled the
team to keep the score board
Phillip Island bounced
back and for the next ten
minutes did all the attacking.
Goals to Runnalls and Seddon
started a minor fight back as
the visitors kept the ball in
The Allies backline re-
sponded in grand style with
Ryan Marriott, Jaden Nolan
and Trent Robertson safe and
sure across half back.
Just when the visitors
started to look dangerous the
Allies shifted up a gear. Jus-
tin Marriott was everywhere,
helping out on halfback then
setting up a scoring chance.
A big scuffle in the for-
ward pocket saw Brandan No-
lan emerge with the free kick
and he delighted the crowd by
steering it home. On the siren
Doran received a neat pass
from Batson to kick his fourth
for the day.
During the halftime break
Phillip Island rearranged the
team as they came out ready
to play in the second half to
outplay the Allies in goals
kicked by 8 goals to 6 howev-
er it was the Allies back line
that did the job.
The start of third term saw
the Allies score first as Darcy
Atkins roved the packs and
from outside 50 metres kicked a
valuable goal. Phillip Island re-
sponded and as players went in
hard the umpires worked hard
to restore order. A fifty metre
penalty allowed Runnalls an
easy goal but the visitors then
got a run on and goals by James
Taylor and again Runnalls re-
duced the lead.
At the last change the
home side lead comfortably
13-4 to 8-9.
The last term would see
the best football as both sides
strived for victory. Philip Is-
land kicked the first three via
Duiker and Taylor to bring
the margin back to less than
two goals lead. But again the
home side responded as Mar-
riott, Batson and Phillips al-
ways did something special
and with the forward line wide
open it allowed the running
player to have an open path to
goals. A kick from the centre
bounce cleared all and sun-
dry and the explosive speed
of Phillips allowed him to
outrun the Islander defenders
and score an important goal
to take the lead to nearly three
goals. Philip Island made one
last charge through Seddon
and Weir who tried hard to
bridge the gap.
On the last line Jaden No-
lan and Brendan Kruse were
solid and their safe mark-
ing kept the visitors away
from the scoring area. Around
the outer flank Atkins, May-
ers, Marriott and Batson com-
bined to keep possession of
the ball and press forward. A
neat pass into the centre found
Phillips. His low pass hit
Doran on the chest forty me-
tres out and Doran’s seventh
goal sealed the match. Final
scores Allies 100 defeated
Phillip Island on 88.
