DESPITE all-hands on deck to
maintain the busy operational
tempo, Navy scraped together
teams to win the men's open, men's
over-35s and overall carnival win-
ners titles in the ADF Football
Federation National Carnival.
The sailors won the open title by
shooting down Air Force 1-0 in the
decider and also the over-35s title by
winning three of their four matches.
The triumphs speak volumes
of the character of the RAN play-
ers and the dedication of the Navy
Football Federation Australia (Navy
FFA), which conducted a highly
beneficial training camp including a
coaching session with Sydney FC in
the lead up to the carnival.
The two Navy men's teams and a
women's team battled more than 250
ADF, APS and New Zealand players
in the tournament that was played
at Melita Stadium in Sydney from
The victory for the Navy men's
open team was particularly memora-
ble as their goal in the dying minutes
silenced the jeering by the Army
team in the grandstand that would
have won the title if the match was
Navy's man of the match was
AB Robert Miller, who scored the
match-winner by slotting in a neat
cross from AB Robbie Panetta.
The goal was well deserved for
Navy, which dominated the match
after Air Force's star player, CPL
Craig Murphy, was stretchered off
the field with a serious ankle injury
on the 10-minute mark.
The triumph was especially
sweet for Navy, which lost its open-
ing game against Army 1-2, before
recovering to beat the APS 3-0.
Fortunately, Air Force beat Army 3-
1 to set up a winner-take-all encoun-
ter between Navy and Air Force on
the last day.
The Navy men's over-35s were
valiant in their 0-2 defeat to Army
on the last day's play, but won the
title courtesy of their 4-0 thrashing
of APS and their 1-0 wins over New
Zealand and Air Force.
The Navy women drew 1-1 with
Air Force but suffered a 0-5 loss to
Army and a 1-3 defeat to the Kiwis.
Navy FFA Head Coach LEUT
Jim Ford said it had been a great
"It felt sensational after all the
hard work everybody had put in to
walk away with three of the four
trophies," he said.
All the Navy players benefitted
from a training session with Sydney
FC at Macquarie University, where
they had the opportunity to get
World Cup secrets from striker John
The Navy players also kicked
a goal for the RAN community
engagement program by visiting
Parramatta East Public School to
conduct a coaching clinic with Year

HEALTH personnel attached to
HMAS Cairns (CMDR Bob Heffey)
know how to lead by example.
When October 14 was designated
Ride to Work Day across the nation,
Cairns' health personnel knew they
had to participate.
Navy nurses, LCDR Ange Googe
and LEUT Narelle Holmes, enrolled
nurse Trish Lee and LSMED
Latisha Baker pedaled their way
from their homes to the base.
Ride to Work is a national behav-
iour change program that encourag-
es workers to feel good and have fun
commuting to work by bicycle.
It also brings home the health,
financial and environmental benefits
of travelling by pedal power.

THIRTEEN RAN members from
HMAS Cairns (CMDR Bob Heffey)
traveled south to Townsville to partici-
pate in this year's Far North Queensland
ADF Golf Championships.
The championships were conducted
from October 26 to 28 at the Townsville
Golf Club and attracted 58 ADF golfers.
The overall RAN champion was
LSMT Leighton Fulwood, while CPOPT
June Cunningham was runner-up in the
ladies division scoring two "nearest the
pins" over the three-day competition.
The remaining Navy players took
many of the minor placings.
A special mention goes to PONPC
Donna McGrory for her persistence in
sticking it out for the three days. She
improved her score by seven strokes over
Despite that fact that many of the
RAN players were in their very first year
of golf, the results ensured a solid foun-
dation for the future.
Because of the strong turnout of Navy
golfers this year and now that the Cairns
Navy Golf Club has 77 members, there
is a strong push to hold next year's ADF
Golf Championships in Cairns.
