Carrum Downs Recreation Reserve

Carrum Downs Recreation Reserve in 2020
Carrum Downs Recreation Reserve aka Wedge Road Reserve is a new redevelopment that now has pavilion situated between two ovals, one synthetic, with limited parking bays. Much talk was that former WNPL club Southern United was to move there but the club decided a far better offer was available to them at Casey Fields. In 2021 Frankston Pines will play home games at this venue while Monterey Boulevard gets a new pavilion constructed.

Civic Reserve is Mornington is a new set up that will be home to Mount Martha Soccer Club that is almost across the road from the long-established Dallas Brooks Reserve. When these images where done the pavilion had yet to be constructed and in the soccer section of the area two pitches head to head with car parking had been completed. Mount Martha was due to compete in the 2020 State League 5 South division prior to COVID cancelling the season.

Dallas Brook Park, Mornington in 2020
Dallas Brooks Park in Mornington is home to State League 1 South East club Mornington Soccer Club. With three full-size pitches, it has allowed the home club to be able to expand over the years. One of the updates to the pavilion since my last lot of images is that the pavilion now has a limited undercover area.

2003 PLC Rd 2 - Carrum United v North Caulfield

2003 VSF Provisional League Cup: Round 2 (March 10th) Carrum United (Provisional 2 SE ) vs North Caulfield (Provisional 1 SE) Venue: Italo Australia Club (525-531 Frankston-Dandenong Rd, Dandenong South, VIC, 3175)

Sorry about how poor my camera skills were back then. Found this footage at the back end of one of my mini tapes. What I decided to do is keep what I found and uploaded it in its entirety. So its the first goal and then the last 15 mins or so of footage of the game 

The venue was called the Italo Australia Club that was a privately owned venue shared by Carrum United Soccer Club, the restaurant and the lawn bowls club. This place was sold off and Carrum United was forced to find a new home. They then became the current day Skye United and host games at Skye Reserve.

Baxter Park's main pitch facing north.
Here are much better drone images that what was presented a few years back of Baxter Park, the home of Baxter Soccer Club. In these images, three pitches are set up for soccer but in the past, the oval to the south of the main pitch has also hosted matches. The main pitch has a very well built pavilion that has a social room and also provides a good view of the matches.
