Light Up Wedge Road!

After many years, it has finally happened. The submission for full ground lighting on Steve Thompson oval at Carrum Downs Recreational Reserve has been approved by state government with the funds available to start the project as soon as possible. The reserve will also be the home of a new CFA facility on the corner of Wedge and Frankston-Dandenong roads.

The Napthine government have pledged to invest $1.1 million into the reserve for new facilties should it be re-elected in November. 

Premier Dennis Napthine and Member for Carrum, Donna Bauer, paid a visit to the reserve on Friday afternoon to make the announcement along with members of our club, Carrum Downs Cricket Club and the Carrum Downs CFA.

This is welcomed news for our club and others who share the facilities. The reserve has been neglected for some time and it is great to see it finally get the awareness and love that it needs. It will be fantastic for our players to be able to train under full ground lights.

Donna Bauer has done a mountain of work in getting the state government funding for the lights, re-election investment as well as many other projects that will benefit Skye/Carrum Downs residents. We thank her for being a strong supporter of Skye FNC throughout the year. You can view her work at

This is a huge step forward for our football/netball club. It is a win that we have been aiming at for a very long time. Well done to everyone who put in the hard yards over the years to make this ground lighting dream a reality.

We have so many people working hard behind the scenes. It is now up to everyone to support the club and help us to make it a big success.

For full details of the announcement, download the media release here.

Awards Season

We apologise for the delay in news posts. It has been a very busy time for the club with the conclusion of finals and the beginning of presentation evenings.

Unfortunately, all three sides went down in the grand finals that were played at Jack Barker oval on September 20th. The thirds began the day in terrific fashion opening up a six-goal lead at half time. However, it certainly was a game of two halves as Dingley soon showed their class to eventually win by one point in a classic grand final. Commiserations to Ben Earnshaw and the thirds guys, but they must also be congratulated on a fantastic year.

The reserves didn't have their best day and sadly went down to Mordialloc by 49-points. The reserves had an amazing season, going undefeated in the home & away rounds. It is disappointing to stumble at the final hurdle, but we look forward to seeing what they can produce next year.

The seniors won all but one quarter when they took on Mordialloc. The unfortunate fact was that the one quarter they did lose was Mordialloc's best by far and gave them enough of a lead to win the game by 34-points.

Congratulations to Dingley and Mordialloc. We look forward to meeting again in the future.

On Friday October 3rd, the SFL held their annual awards dinner at Sandown Greyhound Park. Several Skye FNC members attended what was a fantastic night put on by the league.

Our club had a lot of success, capping off what was a terrific year. The flags would have been nice, but the awards we did win served as a nice consellation:
