Showdown for RSPL crown – Portmore ready for final, unclear whether MBU will show up

first_imgOn the face of it, when the whistle blows at the Montego Bay Sports Complex this afternoon at 4 p.m., or whenever, signalling the start of the 2016 Red Stripe Premier League final, promoted team and multiple champions Portmore United should start as favourites. The team, which originated in the parish of Clarendon under the name Hazard before changing base to Portmore in St. Catherine but now straddles both parishes, has been the most consistent this season. That consistency saw them crowned ‘League’ champions as they ended the regular season with the most points and were duly rewarded with the $1m bonus. Additionally, Portmore United have owned Montego Bay United (MBU) on the three occasions that they have met this season. In their match, which marked their return to top-tier football, they defeated Montego Bay United 2-0, with Montego Bay resident Ricardo Morris responsible for one of them. That was followed up with a 1-0 win at the Juici field, courtesy of a Cleon Price strike. Morris was again on the score sheet along with Tramaine Stewart and Mark Alves as Portmore United left Montego Bay with a 3-1 win in the last meeting. QUALITY TEAM Even with the evidence, which is helped by the depth of their available squad, Portmore United coach Jeffrey Hewitt will not accept the favourites’ tag. “To me, MoBay will be starting favourites. This is their third consecutive final and that shows that they are very consistent. They are quality team and their record speaks to that, so no one can take anything away from them,” said Hewitt who was a part of Portmore United’s coaching staff when they won in 2008 and 2012. “Despite that, we are confident in our abilities and what we can do. Yes, we have beaten them in the three matches that we have played so far, but the past does not matter now. What matters is what we do on the day,” added Hewitt. According to the man who distinguished himself at Garvey Maceo, the Portmore United unit is so focused right now that nothing will distract them. Not even the protest action by MBU, which has seen them boycott a number of promotional events leading up to today’s big day and them threatening not to show up for the 4 p.m. start. “We are so focused that we are not entertaining any thoughts of them turning up or not. We are preparing for a 4 p.m. game and we will be showing up for that. “Tomorrow’s game, we are anticipating, will be a very competitive one. It is a final and our players know what is at stake and we have to go out there and compete,” he added. VERY OPEN While the Portmore United camp has been very open, the Montego Bay United camp has not so much as entertained a call or interview request from the media in relation to today’s game. The Sunday Gleaner, however, managed to speak with someone close to the camp. “My players are ready for the game. They have not been distracted by what is going on, and they will be showing,” the source said. “This is the third final that the team has been in, the past three years, and this is important to us. The first year, we won; last year, we came second; and this year, we are going out to win again. “Even if it is nine players, we are going to play them. No team can beat Montego Bay United four times in a season,” the source added. In addition to the record going against them, Montego Bay United have the offfield distractions which could spill over on the field going against them. Add to that the absence of two of their most potent players – Owayne Gordon, the season’s leading scorer to a loan deal, and Dino Williams to an injury. Allan Ottey is the only one available of that pacy and skilful trio. A lot will depend on the former schoolboy star who shone alongside Portmore’s Morris for St James High. Injury kept him out for chunks of the season, but he will have to lead the forward line with support from Cory Hylton. Goalkeeper Jacomena Barrett is a player with a lot to prove as he is a former Portmore United player and conceded three goals in the last match. Losing again will not sit well with him. If he reports in inspired form as he has been on occasion, he could lift his teammates. With almost everything stacked against them, this could be the motivation the Montego Bay United players need to pull off the improbable victory.last_img read more

Conquerors, GDF, Buxton strike victory

first_imgGFF Elite League III…With the 13th round of matches almost completed in the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) Elite League III, Fruta Conquerors are narrowly hanging on to the top position with 29 points.Delroy FraserThe defending champions, Guyana Defence Force (GDF) are third with 27 points from 13 matches while Western Tigers, who also have 27 points, sit in second after playing just 11 matches.Den Amstel follow the top three closely with 26 points while Victoria Kings (22) are the only other team to crack the twenties. Like GDF, Den Amstel and Kings have both completed 13 matches.The action continued on Sunday at the Leonora Stadium with three matches that saw GDF brush aside Ann’s Grove 4-0, Fruta Conquerors squeeze past Den Amstel 2-1 and Buxton United sink Victoria Kings 1- 0.GDF and Ann’s Grove contested a laid-back first half as the eventual victor drew first blood in the sixth minute, compliments of Shawn Arthur. However, the second half was completely different form the first 45 minutes with the Ann’s Grove side showing fatigue, which led to the opposition succeeding on three more occasions.Delroy Fraser scored in the 64th and 76th minutes to complete a brace while Sherwyn Caesar ground the clock right down to the end as he accounted for the final goal in the third minute of injury and stoppage time.In a match that had three goals being divided among two good teams, Conquerors showed why they have climbed to the top of the league.The ever-improving Den Amstel squad battled to a goalless first half with Fruta Conquerors, but six minutes into the second half, Den Amstel were able to find the back of the net from a Delon Lanferman strike.Conquerors’ Eon Alleyne was able to secure the equaliser in the 79th minute, but when all looked bleak, Domini Garnett with a stunner in the 90th minute ensured a hard-fought come-from-behind win was put to rest. Of course, that was all that was needed to gain the three points and climb to the top of the table.Meanwhile, Buxton, who occupy the sixth position on the points table, needled Victoria Kings to move on to 15 points. Buxton are six points ahead of Milerock (9) while Ann’s Grove and Cougars FC both have six points and NA United are last with only four points.Dillon Wright was the star of the evening for the Buxtonians with his 36th minute goal which the opposition had no answer for.last_img read more

Gor Mahia’s coronation set for November 18

first_img0Shares0000Gor Mahia players celebrating with the Kenyan Premier League trophy in 2015, the last time they won it. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaNAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 30 – Gor Mahia will officially be handed their 2017 Kenyan Premier League title on the last day of the season, November 18, when they play Sony Sugar at the Moi Stadium in Kisumu.The club and the Kenyan Premier League have confirmed that all logistical arrangements will be done to ensure the process is smooth, even as it emerged that plans to have the ceremony done at the bigger Kasarani Stadium in Nairobi did not bear fruit. “We will have made all the necessary arrangements and since we only had two options, we settled for Kisumu,” Gor Mahia Chairman Ambrose Rachier told Capital Sport.K’Ogalo confirmed their status as league champions for the 16th time with their 1-0 win over Ulinzi Stars on October 21, ensuring they wrapped up the title with four matches left.“It has been a tough season and definitely we are excited that we could wrap up the title after missing it last season. Everyone has worked hard to get this achievement,” Rachier further commented.Even with the league title wrapped up, head coach Dylan Kerr has urged his players to ensure they keep the flame burning to the final day, demanding a 12-point haul in the remaining four fixtures of the season.The coach has also hinted that he might hand playing opportunities to players who have found it tough getting action in the previous matches.“I am an ambitious coach and though we have the league in our hands now, we need to chase other records. I need 12 points from these remaining four games. I want us to win the league by the highest points tally ever and also the biggest difference to the second team,” Kerr told Capital Sport.Gor Mahia fans with a banner commemorating their KPL title in 2013“These players need to make history for themselves and their families and that is what drives us in the remaining four matches,” the coach added.Already, the club has started putting into thought next year’s CAF Champions League, with their target being a group stage appearance – the first for the 1987 Mandela Cup champions – since 1993 when they reached the quarter finals of the CAF Cup.Rachier has admitted the club needs to inject some good finance into their preparation, also pointing out they need to get into pre-season training early to ensure they are physically ready when the tournament starts in February with the preliminary round.“It requires heavy investment and we really need to gather our finances and ensure we are well able to sustain the team. We are not favoured by our calendar because most teams play CAF Competitions with their leagues ongoing but for us, we are just starting the season,”“We need to come up with a very good way which will ensure that our players have enough rest but at the same time, ensure we start pre-season training early,” Rachier said.At the same time, Rachier has confirmed they are working round the clock to ensure six out of contract players extend their stay at the club.The six are defenders Godfrey Walusimbi, Harun Shakava and Musa Mohammed, midfielder Ernest Wendo as well as forwards Jack Tuyisenge and Timothy Otieno.Gor Mahia forward Jacques Tuyisenge celebrating after scoring in a past KPL match. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaAlready, Tuyisenge has expressed interest to stay at the club.“We are taking to them though we are yet to make agreements. The biggest thing is money and we need to agree on that important aspect. But I am confident that we will be able to agree on terms,” the club chair said.Also, he has disclosed to Capital Sport the club is working to rope in six new players; two youngsters from high school, two from clubs within the country and a further two ‘very experienced’ players.“I am talking to them now though nothing concrete, but primarily we need to bring in six new players and retain most of the ones we have,” the club boss further said.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Manchester City boost: Key duo to return for Newcastle game

first_img1 Vincent Kompany and Raheem Sterling are poised to return for Manchester City in Tuesday’s rearranged Premier League game at Newcastle.City captain Kompany has been included in the squad to travel to St James’ Park after a month on the sidelines with the latest in a long line of calf-related problems.England forward Sterling is also back in contention after missing five games since suffering a groin injury in the derby loss to Manchester United on March 20.Kompany’s influence on the City team is significant but manager Manuel Pellegrini has not had to rush him back with the previously erratic Eliaquim Mangala and Nicolas Otamendi finally finding some consistent form.Pellegrini said: “I am very happy with the way they are playing now, both of them, and Vincent will also be an important help for our defence.“I always say if we are fighting for important things it is because we have a very good squad.“Sterling is just coming from an important muscle injury and we will see tomorrow if he can play some minutes. It depends how he returns from the injury.”The news is timely for City ahead of their Champions League semi-final with Real Madrid, the first leg of which takes place at the Etihad Stadium next week.

DONEGAL PENSIONER’S 7-HOUR WAIT AT SLIGO HOSPITAL AS STAFF STRUGGLE TO COPE

first_imgA CO Donegal family says they had to wait SEVEN hours for their mother to be seen at Sligo Regional Hospital as staff struggled to cope with the knock-on from the Letterkenny Hospital crisis.And Donegal Daily can reveal that NO extra nurses or doctors were provided this week to Sligo’s A&E Department despite the extra casualties being brought in from Donegal.One week after Letterkenny hospital was flooded causing €8M worth of damage, the daughter of a 78-year-old has told of the ‘outrageous’ way Sligo nurses were left to cope. “We arrived with my mother at A&E in Sligo at 8pm after being sent there by our GP,” said the Co Donegal woman.“The department was very very busy and we asked how they were coping and we were told that they were expected to cope with the extra patients from Donegal with the same staff they normally have.“They didn’t get a single extra nurse. They looked exhausted; they didn’t complain but it is a scandal that those poor nurses are not being given any extra help.“We arrived at 8pm but it was seven hours before my mother was seen. People who have to go to Sligo should be warned – they are struggling to cope.” Sean Murphy, the Letterkenny Hospital manager, said new mobile scanners and generators have now arrived in Letterkenny as he works towards setting up a new interim A&E department and interim radiology department on the Donegal site.“We will have this ready in two weeks,” said Mr Murphy.There will be some extra building work in order to achieve this, he said. DONEGAL PENSIONER’S 7-HOUR WAIT AT SLIGO HOSPITAL AS STAFF STRUGGLE TO COPE was last modified: August 2nd, 2013 by John2Share 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

JUDGE SAYS COMPO FOR WOMAN INJURED IN BAR ROW IS NOT ENOUGH

first_imgA judge has said €855 compensation offered to a woman hit by a bottle during a pub row is not enough.The innocent woman, who was caught in the crossfire, was struck by a bottle thrown by Barry Gildea during a fight at the Cavern Bar in Letterkenny on St Patrick’s Day.Gildea, of Correnagh, Letterkenny appeared in court to pay more compensation to the woman for her injuries. However after reading the about the injuries suffered by the young woman, Judge Paul Kelly said the compensation offered was simply not enough.The court heard that when arrested, Gildea (20), was very abusive and spat on the shirt of a Gardai.Solicitor Kieran Dillon said he appreciated the seriousness of the case but that his client simply did not have a lot of funds.He suspected the compensation money came from family because he was only on €100 a week jobseeker’s allowance.Judge Kelly said that for a man who engaged in such behaviour, he received a positive report from the probation services.The court also said Gildea has sent Garda Regan €75 to have his shirt cleaned.Judge Kelly ordered Gildea to do 120 hrs community service in lieu of six months in jail and also 40 hours community service on Garda Regan in lieu of two months in jail.Judge Kelly told the accused “What you did that night had a sig impact on this young lady and has had a very severe affect on her. In other circumstances you might be going to prison.“Facts are you didn’t set out to throw the bottle at this young lady but it did have severe consequences. The probation services said you are otherwise of good character.“Your drinking habits has brought you to the brink of jail. I have also taken int account your extremely limited resources.“If you appear before me on similar matters I will not be dealing with it by means of community service. An apology is cold comfort to this lady and I hope she recovers from this,” he said.JUDGE SAYS COMPO FOR WOMAN INJURED IN BAR ROW IS NOT ENOUGH was last modified: October 17th, 2013 by StephenShare 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) Tags:Barry GildeabottlecourtrowThe Cavernlast_img read more
