first_imgTwo well-struck goals in both halves of Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA)/FLOW Walker Cup knock-out competition by forward Duhaney Williams led Jamaica College (JC) to a fighting 2-0 win over underdogs Haile Selassie High at the Constant Spring playing field yesterday. The ‘Dark Blues’ will play Kingston College (KC) in what is expected to be a blockbuster final, scheduled for November 26. Meanwhile, KC prevailed 1-0 over Bridgeport High courtesy of a Rashawn Mackison penalty in the 30th minute on Tuesday. The game was called off at half-time due to torrential rain and the second-half resumed yesterday at the same venue. The experience and depth of the reigning Manning Cup champions, JC, was too much for Haile Selassie, who were forced to defend stoutly and play the ball out of their half most of the game. Goalscorer Williams, a mix of skilful dribbling and clinical passing, netted a powerful 25-yard strike from direct play in the 14th minute. He finished his brace in the 60th, pouncing on a rebound and spanking home from close range, after the Haile Selassie’s goalkeeper failed to collect the ball cleanly. Williams has netted three Walker Cup goals in two games and seven this season. He is ready for KC. “It feels very good to score and better to help my team reach the Walker Cup final,” he said in a post game interview. “We are the real blue, Jamaica College, and yes we can beat KC. We wanted to face KC,” he stressed. “A good team has to play strong teams and win.” When asked who the favourites for the final are, Williams told The Gleaner: “We (JC) will win. We can give KC probably 2-0.” According to Williams, JC “didn’t want to play any weak team in the final”. Coach Miguel Coley said his team was able to grow throughout the game and get the result they wanted. “We were solid defensively and we looked like a championship team, Congrats to KC, it will be a good game, the tradition is very deep and this is the hallmark of schoolboy football,” said Coley. Haile Selassie’s coach, Geoffrey Maxwell, refused to give a post match interview after claiming interference by “coaches in the team all of a sudden”, noting that they wanted to take charge with the team in the semi-final.

first_imgBarbados’ batsmen – led by Mekhail Marshall and Antonio Morris – and Guyana’s bowlers – spurred by Kevin Sinclair and Joshua Jones – kept their sides in a neck-and-neck race for the WINDIES Under-19 One-day Championship on Friday.Marshall and Morris hit half-centuries to lead the Barbadians past Canada by eight wickets, and Sinclair and Jones shared six wickets to bowl the Guyanese to a 114-run victory against Leeward Islands.Joshua JonesAt the same time, Joshua James and Justyn Gangoo bowled Trinidad & Tobago to a 114-run win over Windward Islands.At Cumberland, Sinclair bagged 3-17 from 9.5 overs and Joshua Jones snared 3-30 from six overs, as Guyana withstood a half-century from Zawandi White to dismiss the Leewards for 101 in 30.5 overs.White collected five fours and three sixes in 53 from 60 balls, but Sinclair and Jones undermined the Leewards’ batting.Earlier, several batsmen again got starts without carrying on, as the Guyanese, chasing a fifth straight One-day title, posted 215 for eight – their biggest total of the tournament – from their allocation of 50 overs.At the Arnos Vale Sports Complex, Marshall hit five fours and five sixes in the top score of 58 from 62 balls and Morris struck two fours and four sixes in an unbeaten 54 from 57 balls to drive tournament leaders Barbados to victory with 92 balls remaining.Marshall shared 45 for the first wicket with prolific, fellow opener Shian Brathwaite and WINDIES Under-15 graduate Nico Reifer to give Barbados a solid foundation.But it was an 86-run, unbroken third-wicket stand between Morris and Reifer, not out on 35, that carried the Barbadians over the threshold.Earlier, WINDIES Under-19 left-arm spinner Joshua Bishop starred with the ball, grabbing 4-28 from his allotted 10 overs, but Canada put up their best batting performance of the tournament to reach 175 in 45.3 overs.Meanwhile, at Park Hill, James too 4-34 from eight overs and Gangoo 3-16 from six overs, as T&T inflicted the first defeat on the Windwards, when they bowled out the hosts for 105 in 27.3 overs.No batsman reached 20 for the Windwards.T&T owed their total of 219 all out in 50 overs to defiant batting from their lower order, led by Nathaniel McDavid with 44.He put on 46 with Avinash Mahabirsingh, whose stand of 43 with Gangoo extended T&T’s innings which was undermined by Shermill Lewis and Daneal Dupigny, as they shared seven wickets.last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000Patrice Evra has ended his playing career to follow his old Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson into management © AFP/File / Andrew YATESROME, Italy, Jul 29 – Former France and Manchester United defender Patrice Evra has called time on his playing career, according to the Italian daily Gazzetta dello Sport.“My career as a player is officially over,” the 38-year-old told the paper. Evra made his name with Nice and Monaco before Alex Ferguson signed him for Manchester United in 2006. He would go on to make almost 300 appearances for the club, winning five Premier League titles and the Champions Leage.He moved to Juventus in 2014, winning two Serie A titles, before spells at Marseille and West Ham.He also played 81 times for France and captained them at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa which became famous for the French team strike at Knysna as they were eliminated in the group stages.Evra said that he was now turning his attention fully to coaching.“I started the course for the UEFA B licence as a coach in 2013,” he said. “Now, I want to finish that so that I can take the A licence. In other words, in a year and a half I will be qualified to manage a team.”Evra was quick to praise the influence of his former Manchester United boss.“He predicted that two of his players would become top level coaches: Ryan Giggs and Pat Evra,” he said naming himself in the third person.“I think of Sir Alex as a father. He accepted me just as I am, sometimes a leader, sometimes arrogant.”0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_img1 Chelsea target Antoine Griezmann Chelsea target Antoine Griezmann is unsure about leaving Atletico Madrid in the season leading up to Euro 2016, according to reports in France.The 24-year-old has become one of the hottest talents in European football after hitting 22 goals in 37 La Liga outings this term.Chelsea, along with Paris Saint-Germain, are said to be ready to break the bank to land the striker, who has a £43m release clause.Both clubs have been knocked back in their initial inquiries to land the forward but both are expected to firm up their interest with big bids this summer.However, according to sources in France, Griezmann himself might decide against a departure as he feels more than happy at the Vicente Calderon.But, more importantly, the red-hot striker is worried that any move away might affect his free-scoring form ahead of an important summer next year.Euro 2016 is being held in his native France and the Burgundy-born striker is desperate to play a key role for his country back on home soil.However, his place could come under threat if he fails to settle in at a new club quickly and he may not be prepared to take that risk, it has been suggested.last_img read more

first_imgRepublic of Ireland manager Martin O’Neill has reflected on his side’s “torturous” journey to Euro 2016, and has told talkSPORT he is “absolutely delighted” to be joining the other home nations teams in next summer’s finals.After ending their qualifying campaign in third behind world champions Germany and Poland in Group D, Irish hopes rested in the playoffs and they deservedly secured their spot with a 3-1 aggregate victory over Bosnia on Monday.The Aviva Stadium was awash in green and white as the team and their jubilant fans were left to celebrate the end of a long road, which saw them fall just short of automatic progression despite a brilliant win and draw double against the Germans.But the dogged determination former Aston Villa boss O’Neill has installed in this Irish team eventually won the day, as a double from Stoke forward Jonathan Walters ensured the Republic will join their neighbours in France next year.“There can be no doubt about it, we’re delighted to be there,” O’Neill told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“We’re absolutely delighted to be joining Roy Hodgson and England, Michael O’Neill who has done splendidly with Northern Ireland and Chris Coleman who has done great with Wales.“It’s been called torturous route to the finals, and that might just sum it up. It was long journey, we played 12 games including the two play-off matches and there were times over the course of the competition when we thought it might have been a bit of a struggle to qualify.“So for us to be there with them, when it maybe didn’t look possible a couple of months ago, I’m delighted.”Listen to the full interview with Martin O’Neill on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast above!last_img read more

first_imgBuncrana Pier tragedy hero Davitt Walsh and his girlfriend Stephanie Knox have been honoured for their bravery once more at the Irish Water Safety’s National Annual Awards.Davitt and Stephanie were presented with Rescue Appreciation Awards for their heroic acts on the night of the tragic drowning off Buncrana Pier last March.Minister Simon Coveney presented the Seiko Just In Time Rescue Award to the couple in appreciation of their efforts to help the Daniels family and the McGrotty family, and for saving the life of baby Rioghnach-Ann McGrotty. Three body-boarders from Monaghan also received awards for saving four teens in Donegal in September.Davitt Walsh was unable to attend the ceremony yesterday in Dublin Castle, but his friend James King accepted the honour on his behalf.This is one of many awards given to the couple for their bravery on that tragic night.On the 20th of March 2016, Davitt, from Kerrykeel, and Stephanie, from Derry, were walking along Buncrana pier when Stephanie noticed a car in the water. The pair immediately ran down to the slipway where they met local man Francis Crawford, who pleaded with them to swim out to the Jeep. Davitt entered the freezing waters of Lough Swilly and swam 40 metres out to sea to reach the Jeep. Four-month old baby Rioghnach-Ann was passed from the arms of her father to Davitt, and he managed to swim back to land with her.His girlfriend Stephanie, from Derry, also played a crucial role, and stripped the wet clothes off Rioghnach-Ann, and kept the baby warm until emergency services arrived.The accident claimed the lives of the father Sean, sons Mark and Evan, mother-in-law Ruth Daniels and her teenage daughter Jodie-Lee.Three brave rescuers from Monaghan also received awards at the event for their heroic acts in Bundoran in September this year. On the 17th of September, John Flannery, his girlfriend Roisin Treanor and her brother Martin Treanor rescued four teenage girls after they had got caught in a rip current while swimming in Bundoran, Co. Donegal.Thirty-two lives were saved from drowning through the brave actions of forty-seven rescuers who received recognition at the event yesterday. Speaking at the event, IWS Chairman Martin O’Sullivan said, “Tragically an average of 133 people drown in Ireland every year and although that’s 133 too many, the figure would be even higher but for the dramatic efforts of these individuals who saved others from drowning and the ongoing work of volunteers teaching swimming and water rescue skills.”“Complacency around aquatic environments is simply not an option”, remarked Mr O’Sullivan, adding that “thirty children aged fourteen and under drowned in the last ten years, reflecting the importance of constant uninterrupted child supervision.” “I appeal to all adults to make themselves more aware of the dangers in, on and around water”, continued the IWS Chairman. “It only takes seconds for tragedy to strike and this can so easily be avoided if people take responsibility for their own safety by learning about the hazards.” Davitt Walsh and Stephanie Knox honoured with rescue appreciation awards was last modified: November 9th, 2016 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
