TIGERS BACK BEVO FOR DOGGIES TO WIN THE AFL GF
 Congratulations to our 2006, 2007 and 2008 Premiership Coach Luke Beveridge for his Western Bulldogs team's Preliminary Final win against Greater Western Sydney. In what could be described as a 4 quarter nail biting game of chess cheered on by all Victorians, the doggies stepped up when it mattered and it is a testament to his leadership style. All at Tigerland are backing Bevo and his Bulldogs in the AFL Grand Final.  Full story.  Posted: 25/09/2016

 

BIG V FOR ANGIE
 St Bedes/Mentone Tigers Under 15 player Angie Andunga has become our first female selected to represent Victoria in the AFL Under 16 Girls All Nations Interstate Championships 26 - 29 September in Shepparton. Over the past two months, girls in this age bracket who were born overseas were invited to training at several sites around Melbourne then trials at Punt Road Oval and a two day hit out in Healesville. From these training sessions a team has been selected by coaching duo David Rodan and Aaron Davey who are heading up this program and the AFL Indigenous Interstate Championships which are also being played in Shepparton 26 - 29 September. Matches kick off on Monday with the Vics up against Western Australia and Queensland, Northern Territory and South Australia on Tuesday and a combined NSW/ ACT on Wednesday. Best two teams play off in the final on Thursday morning. Congratulations Angie. The club is keen to expand junior girls teams in the SMJFL and a Senior Women's team in the VAFA in 2017.  Full story.  Posted: 23/09/2016

 

VALE BETTY EDWARDS
 The club wishes to express its deepest condolences to sons Darren and Dean Edwards and their families on the passing of their mum Betty. Many people new to the club would not know Betty but she was a tireless volunteer from the early 1980's when sons Darren and Dean commenced their playing careers at the Mentone Junior Football Club. Betty's involvement started when junior football commenced from Under 9 level. Dean was our first player to play through the grades to reach senior level and was a member of our 1993 Premiership Team. Betty took on the Assistant Secretary role for years when communication was all done via the mail with typewriter at the ready and forms processed in triplicate. Betty also operated the canteen and afternoon teas for junior Sundays and then senior Saturdays plus a myriad of other jobs including Team Manager and jumper washing. Betty was inducted into the club's Hall of Fame in 2004 and below is our dedication from the booklet. Betty Edwards: During the 1980s and 1990s Betty was a key administrator in both the Mentone junior and senior clubs. She was instrumental in consolidating the Mentone junior club, as well as being assistant secretary, canteen manager and team manager of several teams. Betty was a winner of the Best Club Person award for both clubs and her devotion to the Tiger cause was recognised by her receiving Life Membership awards from both the junior and senior Mentone Football Clubs. She is the only person in both clubs to achieve this feat. Over the past several years Betty would venture up to the club once or twice each season from her home in Rosebud and was in absolute awe of the club's continued growth and the standard of footy. She was always full of praise for 'today's' volunteers due to the pressures on our hectic style of life compared to the 1980's when people just seemed to have more time to help our kids enjoy learning and playing the game we all love. Betty was one extremely proud mum when Dean kicked that final goal in the 1993 Premiership victory over Old Geelong but was even more happier when grandson Harrison commenced AusKick with the Tigers this season. Betty's celebration of her life will be at Tobin Brothers Chapel 39A Boneo Rd, Rosebud, commencing at 2.00pm Friday 9 September. Rest in Peace Betty and thank you.  Full story.  Posted: 6/09/2016

 

TIGERS BACK IN VAFA PREMIER DIVISION
 St Bedes/Mentone Tigers booked a date in the VAFA Premier B Grand Final and in so-doing earnt promotion to Premier Division in 2017 after an uncompromising 27 point victory over premiership favourites Beaumaris at Trevor Barker Oval, Sandringham on Saturday. The Tigers were off to a flying start with an early goal to Chris Richards but thereafter the first quarter was a slog as Beaumaris peppered the goals to little avail before the Mentone team kicked away to a handy twelve point lead at quarter time. The second quarter was ominous for St Bedes as the opposition controlled the football and launched numerous attacks as the Tigers, with Ben Dance and James Tyquin leading from the front, fought to minimise the damage but, notwithstanding, at half time found themselves an uncomfortable 10 points in arrears.  Full story.  Posted: 4/09/2016
