THE season has finished for the Frankston Dolphins, but coach Simon Goosey says the hard work is only just beginning.

Over the next month or so Goosey will chase recruits as he sets about bolstering a young list crying out for an injection of class and experience.

"My job is only just starting," Goosey said.

FRANKSTON coach Simon Goosey said a 10-minute lapse at the start of the third quarter thwarted the Dolphins' quest for a boilover win against reigning premier North Ballarat on Saturday.

The Roosters, inspired by North Melbourne star Leigh Harding, pounced to kick four goals in the third term and forge clear for a 29-point win, 11.9 (75) to 6.10 (46).

FRANKSTON plunged to the bottom of the ladder after being blown away by the winless Werribee Tigers at Chirnside Park on Sunday.

Coach Simon Goosey said the 59-point loss was particularly disappointing because, for three quarters, Frankston looked a winning hope.

Sniffing victory, Werribee slammed on 9.7 to 2.1 in the final 30 minutes to bolt clear.

TOO many mistakesÂ…

That's what irritated Frankston coach Simon Goosey most in his side's 83-point loss to reigning premiers North Ballarat at Kars St on Sunday.

After a competitive first half, the Dolphins were steamrolled in front of a small Mother's Day crowd.

THE good news for Frankston is that it returns to home comforts this week.
The bad is that it hosts North Ballarat, the reigning premier and going along nicely at 3-1 as it constructs its title defence.

An upset victory over the Coburg Tigers in Round 2 gave the Dolphins heart and hope, but it fell to Geelong by 91 points the week after and, on Saturday, took a 105-point thrashing from the Northern Bullants at Visy Park.

"We only played one decent quarter of footy, the third," coach Simon Goosey said on Sunday.

UP TO a dozen first-gamers could be in Frankston's team to tackle Sandringham in Sunday's VFL season opener at Kars St.

The Dolphins' list has never been so young and inexperienced.

Only two players on the list captain Paul Kennedy and Clinton Proctor have played more than 50 VFL games.

Just four have played 20 games or more.

Frankston's average age is 19.

SIMON Goosey says being appointed coach of the VFL Frankston Dolphins is the most exciting challenge of his storied football career.

The legendary Mornington goal kicker was told by Frankston he had the job last Thursday - three days after Shannon Grant parted company with the club.

“I’m really rapt at the opportunity,” Goosey said. “I know how much work has to be put into it.”

Goosey, 42, says he is keen to build a relationship with the MPNFL and provide a pathway for young, local players to make it to the AFL.

FOR the Frankston Dolphins football team, unemployment is not just something that happens to other people.

Four players on the VFL side's 55-strong list have lost their jobs since the economy started to hurt; one of them the team's 28-year-old star on-baller, Justin Berry.
