Really keen for the Port game on the 24th. Port are likely to be a much improved team this year so I think they'll be good opposition for our guys to go up against. Although I doubt Port are all that thrilled to be travelling to Frankston three times (we've got you guys at Kars St early in the season apparently) in such a short period.

Frankston defeat Port 10.5.65 to 3.6.24 today

Fairly happy with the result. Not getting too hyped yet since Port weren't great opposition today, but the ball movement was excellent. Milne, Owens, Grey, Peckett all showing promise.

Frankston looked very good over all four quarters and thoroughly beat an albeit undermanned Port side. 

It was a very healthy crowd too.. Possibly assisted by hosting Polling booths at the ground.

Great photos. 

I imagine scheduling of the practice match alongside the market across the street and while the early voting centre was open was a deliberate choice in the hope of enticing people to wander in casually. Although I'd have preferred if the polling place was located upstairs in the function room rather than causing congestion near the main gate.

I did start to hear some familiar voices on the hill near the end of the game. Wonder if they got there late or decided to keep quiet for half the game.

Just a note on today's game, Frankston were without a number of top liners too. Mynott, Voss, Connor Riley, Murphy, Nayna and Roberts were all missing. So I'm quietly pleased with the comprehensive win, given that it was done with largely a bunch of new kids. A few things to note for the Dolphs out of today.....

Lochie Reidy was superb in the middle and has definitely filled out over the off season - will be a player to watch.

Angus Grant was excellent in the ruck and crashing the marking packs today. Another who looks ready to step up.

Justin Davies and Trent Marotta - two big units filled the full forward line today and look very dangerous as a dual threat. This allowed Josh Butland to play across half forward and he looked very comfortable getting it forward. 

Jet Peckett looks as brave as his old man.....throwing himself backwards into packs and making impossible spoils.

Tyson Milne has definite talent, but is a showman like his old man. Will frustrate but could be a match winner too.

Noah Gown was out today as well and yet our forward line functioned quite well. Keen to see what it looks like once he's in there.
