East Warrnambool mentor Danny Chatfield is home with his family after spending time in Royal Melbourne Hospital.

The Deakin University Female Football League under 18 season is in full swing.
The Standard photographer Anthony Brady captured action from the Warrnambool versus Stawell match, including Blue Sarah Moloney pictured above, on Sunday.
The Hampden league's attention turns to interleague this weekend.
Some players are in under injury clouds including Koroit spearhead Sam Dobson, who is keen to play under AFL triple premiership player Jonathan Brown.

Let's hope the proud South Warrnambool export can make it three on the trot when they play Ballarat at Mars Stadium next weekend.
Go Bottle Greens!
