Its a bit like death and taxes. Afterall some more successful VFA premiership clubs like Dandenong,Oakleigh.Prahran and Geelong West went belly up and none of them were able to return and sadly I think the current Frankston Club will go the same way.
October 28 is the next key date it is the Creditors meeting.
yesterday October 9 2016 could be the last time I do the scoreboard at Frankston Park depending on what happens the next few weeks.
Old saying is very true....
Hope for the best but prepare for the worst.
Have heard a rumour that if Frankston survive their creditors on Friday that they might be back in 2018 as an AFL run club, tied to the Dandenong Stingrays and most likely wont be called the Dolphins anymore. Another rumour going around is that the Stingrays may take over the tenancy of Frankston Park next year.
Only rumours at this stage but where there's smoke.......
bumped into brett lovett last week and he is positive about the future
Bearsman, I think you've been caught up in a game of Chinese whispers! The AFL-run club in Frankston will be what happens if the Dolphins don't get the licence back for 2018.
And whoever told you about the tenancy probably isn't familiar with how the lease of Frankston Park works. I wouldn't be surprised to see the Stingrays playing games and even doing some training at Frankston next year though.
Creditors meeting about to get underway I understand
Creditors have accepted deal.
Dolphins can now work towards getting their license back for 2018 season.
Great news. Shame some game playing in town delayed this by a month, but better late than never. There's a lot of good people involved now, I think there is a chance the club will bounce back stronger than it has been in a long time, touch wood.
Fantastic news for Frankston with the State Government yesterday waiving around 90% of the debt owed to it by Frankston FC equating to around $450,000. Frankston Council has also waived $50,000, leaving a debt of $18,000 which may still be waived or reduced further at the discretion of the incoming council.
