STGC team effort – Bell

first_imgSince the first round of the ISSA/FLOW Manning Cup ended, St George’s College (STGC) has been in unstoppable form, playing some scintillating football, dominating games with flair and panache and virtually scoring at will.Although the North Street-based school has shown a tendency to give up goals, their open style of football is not too much of a worry for coach Neville ‘Bertis’ Bell, who is confident that as long as they stay true to their passing game and continue working as a team, they will be hard to beat.STGC will face St Jago – a team they have already beaten twice this season, in today’s ISSA-FLOW Super Cup semi-final at Sabina Park at 6 p.m.”Not really (concern about defence). I know this team, and once they settle down, we will do well,” Bell said.In the last Super Cup game against Glenmuir, which ended 3-2, the Georgians conceded an early goal in each half, and although Bell admitted it’s something they have to look at, he has full confidence in his players’ abilities.”When we play our passing game, we play well. They (Glenmuir) caught us very early, but I can live with that. It was like two seconds in the game when they scored, same thing in the second-half. It never happen to us before but it is something we have to talk about and it could have hurt us more than it did,” he reflected.Alex Marshall and Shevon Stewart have been the outstanding players for Bell’s team this season, but the charismatic coach insists it will take a team effort if they are to get by St Jago today.last_img read more

Rodman dominates Criterium field

first_img Rodman, who was given an incentive of $10,000 if he could lap the entire field in 15 laps, did just that, but one competitor was able to regain his lap before the 15th was completed. However, he still received the $10,000 incentive, and he admitted that the money was a great motivation. “Money will motivate anybody but there are some very good riders locally and I wanted to show my talent and how strong I am against the other riders. I’ve got talent and I executed, which shows I am on top form right now. Not to say that the rest of guys are not good competition, but I’m just putting my best out there,” he reasoned. He added that. “When I lapped the field, that was a next ten grand covered and then I went for the other five grand, I didn’t get it but it (the race) was good.” Rodman, who also won the category one event, will now turn his attention to overseas, as he will travel to the USA next week to compete. “The Criterium gave me some more fitness because I am leaving in another week to go to New York to do some races over there and this just shows me where I am at to race against the guys in the US. So it was a good challenge and it showed me that I am ready. My goal is always to win, so that is what I am hoping to go there to do,” he said. Other winners on the day included, Daniel Palmer who won category two, Jerome Forest, won category three, Daniel White won category four and Raghni Stephenson category four. The Allcomers title went to Omar Dwyer, Brandon Reid took the junior title, Tatdre Watt the juvenile category, while the women’s event went to Denise Caine. Cleveland Sharpe captured the Master’s trophy and Donald Hall the Super Masters trophy. GREAT MOTIVATION Defending champion and Jamaica’s number one ranked cyclist, Marloe Rodman, decimated the field by at least a lap to capture the feature 25 lap race at the Kingston Criterium event in Downtown Kingston, yesterday. The former Caribbean champion has been winning local races with relative ease, especially over the last two years, but he does not think the local competition is lacking, just that he is training and competing harder. “I would never say it is getting easy to win locally. It is never easy, as the other guys train very hard as well, it’s just that I have to push a bit harder. But it’s not easy,” he insisted.last_img read more

Senator Jallah Supports Liberia’s Food Security Agenda

first_imgPresident Pro-Tempore of the Senate Armah Z. Jallah has pledged his commitment to Liberia’s food security initiatives which are undertaken to ensure that Liberians have enough food to eat.Senator Jallah made the commitment recently when he led a team of friends and family members to harvest rice on his farm in Gbarpolu County. The Senator and his colleagues in the legislature are on their annual agriculture break from October to the second Monday in January 2016. The break starts in August every year but this year President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf requested the lawmakers to defer their break in order to pass pending bills.Senator Jallah said he was delighted that many of his Senate colleagues are also farmers, including Senator Sando Johnson of Bong County, Senator Frederick D. Cherue of River Gee County, Senator Oscar Cooper of Margibi and many others.The rice produced on his farm is distributed to residents of nearby communities, the senator disclosed. More than one hundred and fifty people are currently working on his farm and they also help during the harvesting period, he said. Food production is paramount, said Senator Jallah and hoped that others, particularly law makers, would prioritize farming activities in their various counties.He also urged other Liberians to engage in regular farming to support the country in its drive to feed itself.“We need to cultivate what we eat and eat what we grow. This is the best way to engage in high production,” he said. Liberia remains a highly food insecure country, with its hunger rating stated as ‘serious’, according to the 2012 Global Hunger Index.While the country is blessed with a favorable agriculture climate, extensive biodiversity, and vast natural resources, decades of war and low economic and social investments have ravaged Liberia’s productive assets, according to the Index.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Tanvir ended.Meanwhile, the Warriors engaged some hard work in the nets this past Saturday and will continue their preparatory camp up until August 7 ahead of their first game at Providence versus the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots.last_img read more

Salvation Army receives a new Food Bank Food Truck

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Salvation Army picked up their new Food Bank ‘food truck’ which is being used as soon as it was delivered this morning.The food delivery truck was purchased and donated by Food Bank BC as a way to help with the Perishable Food Program the Salvation Army started last year.- Advertisement -The truck will be a real asset to the Food Bank shares Cameron Eggie, Executive Director of the Salvation Army, as he goes on to explain the Food Bank used to use a minivan to collect donations from local grocery stores. In total receiving approximately 800lbs of food each day meant several well planned out trips. When receiving perishables, especially in the summer because meat and dairy need to be transferred quickly.Eggies says now the Food Bank can do it all in one shot.Phase one for the Food Bank was receiving the truck and phase two is having the vehicle go to Edmonton to be fitted with a refrigeration unit which will help further preserve the food collected and give more time for food collection.Eggie explained that Amanda’s No Frills, Safeway, and Save-On-Foods have all partnered with the Salvation Army, and upon doing inventory each day the stores will put food inside the bins that is still fit for human consumption but is close to its ‘Best Before’ date and is unable to be sold. He said that during the morning, volunteers will be collecting the donations in order to give them out at the Salvation Army food bank on 100th Ave.Advertisement The Salvation Army has previously received donations of bread and other non-perishables but was able to expand the program to now collect perishables in the morning. last_img read more

Defiant Mourinho hails Man United

first_img0Shares0000Man United manager Jose Mourinho was delighted with the way his side ground out victory over Liverpool © AFP / Oli SCARFFLONDON, United Kingdom, Mar 10 – Jose Mourinho slammed criticism of Manchester United’s cautious approach in their 2-1 win over bitter rivals Liverpool on Saturday, while West Ham fans rebelled in ugly scenes during their 3-0 defeat against Burnley.Marcus Rashford scored twice in the first 25 minutes at Old Trafford as United held off a Liverpool fightback to move five points clear of their visitors in second place in the Premier League. 0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) United also closed to within 13 points of Manchester City, but barring a late-season collapse by the runaway league leaders, that gap looks unbridgeable.Liverpool were left to rue a slow start as Rashford twice finished impressively after Romelu Lukaku had outmuscled Dejan Lovren.Jurgen Klopp’s side dominated possession as United sat back for long periods and Eric Bailly’s 66th-minute own goal set up a tense finish.“If people don’t think we deserved it, I don’t care,” Mourinho said.“I am a bit tired, we have a match on Tuesday. I don’t care what people say. The boys are happy, I’m happy.”Just a second defeat in 21 Premier League games leaves Liverpool still third, but they could drop to fourth if Tottenham win at Bournemouth on Sunday.“Second half we had to continue chasing the game, then we scored the goal and should have been a penalty around Fellaini situation on Sadio,” Klopp lamented.last_img read more
