300 Games Paul Wintle – Let’s celebrate
 This Saturday 1 August will mark the 300th appearance of Paul for the mighty St Bedes / Mentone Tigers and no better match to perform in than 2nd v 3rd at Brindisi Street. Paul commenced in 1998, playing two seasons in the Under 19’s, winning the Under 19 Best and Fairest in 1999. In 2000 Paul’s efforts saw him awarded Best First Year Player and followed up in 2001 winning the Most Courageous E. J. Turner Memorial Award, an award which he also won in the 2008 Premier A Grade Premiership win over Collegians and again in 2009. In 2003 Paul was Runner Up Best and Fairest and went one better in 2004 winning the William Groves Club Champion Memorial Trophy and to top that off, also scored the Most Consistent Award, named and dedicated to Michael Hecker. 2006 was another great year for Paul, part of our magnificent Premiership winning team against AJAX and being presented with the Best Team Player award, named in honour of our 1928 premiership player Doug Patterson. In 2010 Paul won our Leading Goal Kicker award and in 2012 was honoured to be named VAFA State Captain and awarded Life Membership of the club. And to top all that off, he’s a great guy. Well done Paul, what an absolute honour it has been for us to watch you play. Your dedication to the Tigers has been sensational. Let’s celebrate with Paul against Old Melburnians and lock in 2nd spot on the ladder.  Full story.  Posted: 31/07/2015

Vale John Eddelbuttel
 The club mourns the loss of Life and Hall of Fame Member John Eddelbuttel and wishes to express its deepest condolances to the family. John was 84 years of age. The funeral service will be conducted at Russell Brothers 89 Balcome Road Mentone on Thursday 23 July, commencing at 1.00pm followed by a wake at the Mentone Bowling Club to honour his valued life to both our club and the Mentone Bowling Club. Most people currently at the club would not know John as he first played with the club as a junior in 1946. Despite suffering a serious knee injury at nineteen years of age, he went onto play more than 200 games for the club. His best years in our senior team were under the coaching of Jim Baird (ex Carlton VFL 1945 & 1947 Premiership winner), during an era when Crofton Mudge (ex St Kilda VFL) was also prominent. John continued to provide great off field support to the club over a number of years being awarded Best Social Worker in 1952 with later roles on the committee, and as the resident barman and cleaner in the sixties and seventies. He was one of the key movers in establishing the ‘Tiger Tails’, which provided crucial financial support to the club in the seventies. His countless hours volunteering and mentoring the young players of that era was greatly appreciated back then and is acknowledged again today. John was made a Life Member of the club in 1960 and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2006 where he expressed his great affection for the club. He was so proud on our continued growth from 3 and 4 teams back in 1940's. RIP John and thank you.  Full story.  Posted: 22/07/2015
