MBU return to top of League table

first_imgWestern Bureau:Montego Bay United’s (MBU) speed merchant Alan Ottey returned to form, after scoring the opener in his team’s 2-1 win over western rivals FC Reno on Wednesday night, a victory that lifted the club back to the summit of the Red Stripe Premier League.Ottey, who has been out of action since late last year because of injuries, was back in his familiar marauding role up front for MBU, and looked at his dazzling best all night against a Reno defence line that had trouble keeping the speedy forward in check.MBU’s win, their 13th in 25 matches, also snapped Reno’s modest win streak at two, inside the Montego Bay Sports Complex.With 48 points, MBU overtook defending champions Arnett Gardens (46), for leadership of a rather tight Premier League contest so far this season, while Reno remain stuck in eighth place on 30 points, the same as seventh place team Boys’ Town.Ottey, meanwhile, wasted little time to score against an old foe on Wednesday, when he fired home in the eighth minute against a scrambling Reno defence.own goalMercurial midfielder Jermaine Woozencroft scored MBU’s second on the stroke of half-time to make the score 2-0 at the break, but an own goal from John Barrett in injury time gifted Reno a consolation.Reno had little going for them up front, and looked a shadow of the team that had put together a two-match win streak.Rushane Sharpe was clearly not at his best, neither was Afiba Chambers, and that played into MBU’s hands.It was a welcome return to form for Ottey, and the tricky forward’s fifth goal of the season should help improve his confidence.Ottey, who has seen his form for the club dip primarily because of niggling leg injuries recently, has only played a few games this season, but is always a dangerous player when fully fit, as his blistering pace on and off the ball is a constant problem for defenders.last_img read more

Inconnu swimmers get first taste of long course in Prince George

first_imgPRINCE GEORGE, B.C. – Twenty one members of the Inconnu Swim Club were in Prince George last weekend, competing in their first long course swim meet of the year, the PGB Moose Meet.The group of swimmers was largely comprised of the club’s more senior athletes, as the swim meet features a number of competitors from across Central and Northern B.C. Inconnu head coach Steve Carson said that the meet was seen as a good barometer of where the swimmers sit when it comes to competing in long course events. Unlike the North Peace Leisure Pool, long course meets feature a 50 metre pool, meaning that swimmers spend more time kicking, with fewer kick-offs. “We’re using as a meet that sets us up for later in the season,” said Carson. “It’s more about getting used to swimming it that it is about the time.”The club’s two senior girl swimmers Brittany Welsh and Alex Hedges both had excellent meets to start the long course season. The pair both put up several best times in the Individual Medley eliminator event. Hedges also notched her first 50 metre Freestyle time under 28 seconds, with a time of 27.97. Welsh also swam her fastest-ever 50 Butterfly, in a time of 30.30.- Advertisement -The Inconnu’s boys also had an excellent showing at the tournament. 10 year-old Dayton Carson knocked 20 seconds off his previous 200m Individual Medley, swimming in 3:25.34. Dominic Amler took the shears out as well, trimming 25 seconds from his 200m Freestyle, with a 2:35.26. Eric Louie, not known for his distance ability, swam the 400m Freestyle in an impressive 4:39.55.The Inconnu swim team is back on the road this weekend, with the rest of club’s athletes that did not head to P.G. heading to Grande Prairie for the Northern Lights Invitational.last_img read more

Premier League votes against using VAR next season

first_imgThe decision was made at a Premier League shareholders meeting in London on Friday, when all 20 top-flight clubs voted.“Premier League clubs have today agreed to continue advanced testing of Video Assistant Referees (VAR) throughout season 2018/19,” said a league statement.“The decision came after comprehensive discussions regarding the progress made in VAR trials in English football, and key learnings from the many competitions using it elsewhere.“The clubs recognised and are grateful for the substantial developments made by PGMOL (Professional Game Match Officials Limited) managing director Mike Riley and his team.”One of the major concerns regarding VAR as currently deployed is the length of time it takes to reach a decision. It is also not always obvious to spectators inside the stadium when the match referee is calling upon the system or indeed what exactly is the incident he wants reviewed.It was a point highlighted in the EPL’s statement, which said: “The clubs agreed that advanced testing will continue to the end of season 2018/19 to make further improvements to the system, especially around communication inside the stadium and for those following at home and around the world.“The Premier League will also be asking for VAR to be used more extensively in the FA Cup and Carabao (League) Cup in season 2018/19.”Another problem flagged up by trials worldwide is the vexed question of when VAR should be called upon to overturn a “clear and obvious” error.– ‘Not perfect’ –Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, who experienced VAR during an FA Cup game with West Bromwich Albion, agreed improvement was needed before VAR could be used in the Premier League.“The only experience I have with VAR is the West Brom game and I really think that was very interesting,” said Klopp. “We are all agreed it took a little long for all decisions… It’s not perfect in the moment.”There was controversy when England were denied a World Cup warm-up win when VAR helped Italy salvage a 1-1 draw at Wembley last month, after German referee Deniz Aytekin overturned his initial decision not to award a spot-kick when substitute Federico Chiesa tumbled under the challenge of James Tarkowski five minutes from time.Lorenzo Insigne scored from the spot and afterwards England manager Gareth Southgate said: “I’m glad it’s not the World Cup just yet. I think the ruling is ‘clear and obvious’ and it’s not. It’s one you can debate all day… I prefer the referee’s decision is final.”But FIFA president Gianni Infantino, explaining why VAR will be used at the World Cup, said in March: “What we want is to help and to give the referee the possibility to have extra help when he has to make important decisions, and in a World Cup we make very important decisions.“It cannot be possible that in 2018 everybody, in the stadium or at home, knows in a few seconds if the referee has made a mistake but not the referee himself — not because he doesn’t want to know about it but because we forbid him to know.”Germany’s Bundesliga will, however, continue to use VAR next season despite World Cup winner Sami Khedira, who plays for Serie A club Juventus, branding it a “disaster” during this season’s trials.UEFA, European football’s governing body, has still to be convinced, however.“Nobody knows exactly how VAR will work. There is already a lot of confusion,” said UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin, who insists that VAR will not be used in next season’s Champions League.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000German referee Deniz Aytekin studies the VAR (Video Assistant Referee) screen to see if Italy deserve a penalty against England © AFP / Ian KINGTONLondon, United Kingdom, Apr 13 – The Video Assistant Referee system (VAR) will not be used during the 2018/19 English Premier League season, officials announced Friday.Trials of VAR in English cup competitions this season have proved controversial and even though the technology is set to be used during this year’s World Cup in Russia, Premier League chiefs believe further tests are needed.last_img read more

MCCONALOGUE WELCOMES SECOND NEUROLOGIST FOR NORTH WEST

first_imgDonegal Deputy Charlie McConalogue has said the news that a second neurologist will finally be appointed for the North West has come as a welcome relief to the hundreds of people in the region who have been waiting over a year to see a neurologist.“The waiting list for a routine appointment with a neurologist in the North West is now up to 4 years. It is unacceptable that so many patients from across Sligo, Donegal, Leitrim and west Cavan who are suffering from MS, Epilepsy, Parkinson’s and other neurological conditions have been waiting years to see a neurologist,” explained Deputy McConalogue.“Last year the HSE said a second neurologist based in Sligo would help to ease the burden significantly. However it proved difficult to fill the post. The HSE has now informed me that the post has finally been filled and discussions are underway with the successful candidate on a start date. “There is no doubt that this will provide some welcome relief and help in reducing waiting times. However, our neurology services are still severely under-resourced and overburdened. Much more needs to be done to address this.“There are over 700,000 people affected by neurological illnesses in Ireland today. Nationally, more than 5,000 patients have been waiting for over a year to see a neurologist and approximately 1,000 people have been waiting for more than 4 years. This is unacceptable. I will continue to push the Government to advance the neurological services in the North West and across the country to bring us in line with our European counterparts,” Deputy McConalogue said.MCCONALOGUE WELCOMES SECOND NEUROLOGIST FOR NORTH WEST was last modified: March 14th, 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)last_img read more

ANTI-RACISM NETWORK TARGETS FIANNA FAIL AGAIN OVER McENIFF TRAVELLERS’ REMARKS

first_imgThe house at the centre of the Ballyshannon controversy was burned downANTI-racism campaigners have targed this weekend’s Fianna Fáil’s Ard Fheis over comments made by Cllr Sean McEniff about travellers – in the wake of the rural home row earlier this year.Cllr McEniff had hit out at the county council for allocating a €220,000 home to a Traveller family near Ballyshannon. The house was subsequently burned down in an arson attack.The Irish Network Against Racism (INAR) today called for the party to take action against Fianna Fáil representatives who “use racist language for political gain.” INAR – comprising over 50 voluntary, community and grassroots groups throughout Ireland – will have a presence outside the Ard Fheis at the RDS throughout tomorrow, urging Fianna Fáil to follow through on the promise it made by signing up to the Anti-Racist Protocol in 2011.Shane O’Curry, Director of INAR, said “Calls for segregation of Travellers and a nativist ‘Irish-first’ policy for social housing are utterly outrageous and tantamount to incitement to hatred. They have no place in Irish political life.“Micheál Martin’s insistence on making excuses for hate speech gives license to party representatives to peddle racist myths and deliberately set communities against each other. Fianna Fáil is touting its new “Fairer Way”, but there’s nothing fair about attacking vulnerable groups in order to score cheap political points,” Mr O’Curry continued.The European Network Against Racism, in Dublin as part of the EU Presidency, warned of the rise of organised racist violence in Europe and the dangers of Irish political parties allowing racist rhetoric to go unchecked. Mr O’Curry concluded, “As our European partners in ENAR remind us, it is standard practice across Europe, even for more conservative political parties, to expel members who express racist views. In the UK, Tory MP John Cherry was swiftly forced to resign last week after making racist remarks. Why doesn’t Fianna Fáil hold its representatives to the same basic standards of decency?”  ANTI-RACISM NETWORK TARGETS FIANNA FAIL AGAIN OVER McENIFF TRAVELLERS’ REMARKS was last modified: April 26th, 2013 by BrendaShare 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:ANTIR-RACISM NETWORK TARGETS FIANNA FAIL AGAIN OVER McENIFF TRAVELLER’S REMARKSlast_img read more
