Vale Mona Collins
 It is with great sadness that the club advises the passing of Mona Collins who was an outstanding volunteer over many decades and was awarded Life Membership back in 1997. Mona was an incredibly happy contributor and would jump into any role that was required to support the players, from Juniors through to the Seniors. Mona got great pleasure in seeing the Senior team and the club be successful and was the rock behind Dale, especially during his years as President and this continued until recently with Dale's recent role as Board Treasurer. There are a lot of great people who work tirelessly in not-for-profit community groups and clubs but there are a few extra special people that pull everything together week in / week out. Mona was one of those extra special people and the club will be eternally grateful for her kindness and devotion. Deepest sympathy to Dale, Shaun, Matt, Brett and family members. RIP Funeral Service is on Tuesday 26 May commencing at 10.30 am at Our Lady of Assumption Catholic Church, Centre Dandenong Road Cheltenham followed by a remembrance at The Mentone Reserve Soppert Pavilion Remo Street from around 12.00pm  Full story.  Posted: 19/05/2015

 

Vale Vern Boag
 Please see end of notice for funeral details. All at St Bedes/Mentone Tigers are deeply saddened by the passing of club icon, Vern Boag. In 1985 Vern came to support his son Andrew as he made his senior debut for the Old Collegians. He stayed to support our Club’s endeavours across four decades and became one of the Club’s most passionate members in its history. Vern always encouraged people to strive to do their best. He was a hard, yet fair marker when it comes to the game, and genuinely wanted players to reach their potential. A pat on the back from Vern was something that players looked for and appreciated. He was a student of the game whose opinion was sort and respected. Vern was appointed senior coach of St Bedes O.C. in 1989. He was an inspirational coach and his players played for him. His passion attracted players to come to the Club and success followed immediately with the senior side finishing as runners up in 89. In the two following years the side finished third and fifth establishing a player group and culture that would hold us in good stead. With the formation of the St Bedes/Mentone Tigers in 1993, Vern continued to be a mentor for players, coaches and presidents. Great players such as Tim Beasley, Peter Lannan and Matthew McCraw owe much of their development to the encouragement and guidance that Vern gave. This continued through the years with many of our latter day players receiving similar encouragement and support. In four decades Vern Boag has hardly missed a Tigers game. He has brought something special to our Club - that intangible ingredient to our environment that has allowed us to achieve the success in VAFA football that we have had. Our playing groups respect for Vern was clearly evident when they extend him the privilege of leading and participating in the final training sessions before the Grand Final appearances of 06, 07, 08 and 11. Vern was a worthy recipient of Life Membership and Hall of Fame recognition. Our deepest sympathies go out to Vern’s immediately family and all those touched by his presence. Funeral Service is on Friday 22 May commencing at 11.00am at Our Lady of Assumption Catholic Church, Centre Dandenong Road Cheltenham followed by a remembrance at The Mentone Reserve Soppert Pavilion Remo Street from around 12.30pm  Full story.  Posted: 17/05/2015

 

Corboy Club - new membership in 2015
 What is the Corboy Club ?? For more than 100 years the St Bedes / Mentone Tigers Football Club has been involved in sculpting our youth from the Mentone and surrounding areas into adults. We are a family orientated not for profit, volunteer based organisation, run purely with the philosophy “for the love of the game” Peter Corboy was a man that dedicated much of his adult life to ensuring that as many young people in our wonderful community had an opportunity to participate in regular organised sport while developing life skills and forging lifelong friendships in the close knit environment of a community sports club. St Bede’s / Mentone Tigers are now looking for a group of like-minded supporters that, unlike Peter, might not have a lot of time to contribute but would like to help mould the youth of our community into upstanding young adults. To honour Peter Corboy’s lifetime of volunteering, St Bede’s / Mentone Tigers are seeking regular monthly financial contributions which will be dedicated into keeping the cost of playing football to a minimum and ensure that every young footballer in our community has an opportunity to participate in a wonderful team sport in the most professional and safe club environment we can offer. Each member of this Club will be identified with a unique “Corboy Club” scarf, given a ticket to a dedicated function and rewarded with a drink card to use at any of our post game or tiger talk sessions throughout the year. For more information or to join this club, please contact Andrew Hayes - corboy@stbedesmentonetigers.com.au  Full story.  Posted: 5/05/2015

50 Games
U8's Kick Off Footy Careers
Amazingly all 25 kids turned up with boots on and ready to go at a blustery Princes Highway Reserve to face Oakleigh in their first ever game of footy. In inclement conditions, skills learned from Auskick and backyard footy were proudly on display to a massive parent supporter base on the sidelines. When the heavens opened on half-time St Bedes Mentone Tigers had done enough to put the game beyond doubt and the remaining half saw wet weather footy skills put to the test, and a few of the kids appear near frozen on the ground. The smiles beamed as the team song was sung for the first ever time and seeing the mud soaked kids revel in the aftermath of their first real game was priceless. All are now counting the sleeps to round 2 and to get back out on the oval again Full story.  Posted: 27/04/2015
