Safer trek to school

By Helen Tatchell

A new footpath leading to a local primary school will see

students and families walk and cycle safely to and from
Gordon PS when the 2019 school year begins.
Moorabool Shire Council will construct the long-awaited, and
much needed path after a funding announcement by Member
for Buninyong, Geoff Howard of a $50,000 investment to build
a footpath between the school and the main road at Gordon.
“Works are expected to get underway over the summer school
holiday period and will deliver a much needed safety boost for
the students at this great local school,” Mr Howard said.
The new 300-metre footpath upgrade is part of the aim at
improving high-risk roads near local schools.
Gordon PS students and families are currently forced to walk
on the road or in long grass on their journey to and from the
Mr Howard said he was pleased to have been able to deliver
this outcome when school principal “Russel Cowan came to
me seeking support for improved traffic management and
safer access for students at the school.”
Mr Cowan said safety was his primary concern.
“Having the students walking from the main road to school
on a footpath will be a major upgrade to their safety, which is
paramount,” he said.
“It’s all about student safety.”
Student Chloe said she can walk safely with her younger
“I can then look after them better and I can go to school
having dry feet,” she said.
Gordon PS has grown from 50 students to 130 in 2018, a rise
that also creates more traffic on the roads at peak school drop
off and pick up times.
“It is great to know students don’t have to walk on roads to
school,” Mr Howard said.
The State government is in caretaker mode (Tuesday 30
October, 6pm) until the election on November 24. Mr Howard

Youthful Lions Tough Mudder 2018

Show Postive Signs St Anne’s Winery Myrniong Photos: Tim Saultry

Darley Cricket Club

By Todd Whelan

The Darley Lions First Grade XI rounded out a tough

initiation into season 2018/19 with a nine-wicket loss to
ladder leaders Brown Hill at the Western Oval last Saturday.
The Lions suffered their fourth consecutive loss against top
four opposition and find themselves winless at the bottom
of the table.
However, there were signs of improvement despite the
Lions inability to bat out their allotted 50 overs yet again
after being sent in.
The top order all reached double figures. Ryan Ali (14),
Lachie Herring (21), Mike Alexander (10) and Brad Barnes
(17) all started well but were all back in the pavillion with
the score on 71.
The middle and lower order led by young guns Joel Cadman
(49) and Mitch Ward (23) led the resistance, guiding the Lions
to their highest score of the season - all out for a competitive
177. The last six wickets for the Lions had been falling like
dominoes in recent times (6/48, 6/41, 6/26). Cadman, Ward
and Hoey (18) ended an ordinary month for the club ‘closing
out’ with the bat. The Lions added 106 for their last six
wickets on Saturday; clearly their best return.
Playing coach Mike Alexander conceded the problems with
the bat start at the top.
“We look comfortable (with the bat) for most parts, then we
just give-up our wicket with ‘get out’ shots,” he said.
“It does get frustrating, it’s not like they’re beating the
bat at all, most of our chances are in front of the wicket.
It’s obviously an execution issue on the back of some poor
Alexander is confident the club will be better for the
hardened experience of the opening month.
“Our youth have been outstanding, they’re contributing
with bat and ball and their energy in the field especially has
had a positive effect on the group.”
“Sixteen-year old Jordan Monaghan (6) debuted for us after
some form with the bat in the twos, while Joel (Cadman),
Mitch (Ward) and Corey (Beaton) are all pulling their weight.”
According to Alexander, the 177 posted by the Lions was
under par.
“I thought we needed 200 when we took to the crease, but
we fell short. Everyone got starts, it was disappointing we
couldn’t go on with it,” he said.
“We didn’t give ourselves much chance with the ball. Our
guys bowled too many ‘four balls.”
“Ben Longhurst bowled terrific and Corey Beaton created a
couple of chances but that was about it.”
Brown Hill (1/179) in reply did it comfortably reaching the
target of 177 for the loss of just one wicket with 9.3 overs
remaining. The ladder leaders smashed 27 boundaries in
their run chase and remain undefeated.
Darley (10th) are at home this week for a round five meeting
with North Ballarat (6th) at Darley Park.
Play starts at noon.
Darley 177 all out, Overs 49.4. J. Cadman 49, M. Ward 23.
Brown Hill 1/179, Overs 40.3. B. Longhurst 1/13.
Brown Hill won by 9 wickets.
