THAT'S the last wooden spoon for Frankston.
This time next year the Dolphins will be preparing for a finals campaign, coach Simon Goosey said.
He said season 2012, though yielding only two wins and a draw, would prove the forerunner to a sharp climb up the ladder.
"I wouldn't be happy with anything less," Goosey said.
"The inroads we've made, definitely we'll be aiming to play in the finals.
"Look, I reckon we were only three or four experienced players short of the finals this year."
The Dolphins finished the season with a 43-point loss to the Northern Blues at Princes Park on Saturday.
