Rusea’s in must-win battle

first_imgWESTERN BUREAU:A cursory look through all eight groups of the of the 2015 ISSA/FLOW daCosta Cup will reveal one glaring difference, in that all except in Zone Two are clearly defined, as to what teams will move on to the FLOW Super Cup and the Ben Francis KO.The eight winners of the respective zones will automatically advance to the quarter-finals of the daCosta Cup.Here is where things become really interesting. Of the four schools in Zone Two, three in Petersfield High (four points), Cornwall College (four) and Rusea’s High (two) will rely on today’s results to know who will move on and who may fall by the wayside.Petersfield will tackle Cornwall College at Frome Sports Complex, while Rusea’s will be playing with added pressure, knowing that only a victory over Herbert Morrison can save their campaign.They will be hoping for a nil-all draw in the game between Petersfield and their top rivals, Cornwall, while they themselves must win by at least three clear goals to advance ahead of those two. Herbert Morrison are already eliminated after two defeats in the round.”It’s still all to play for,” Aaron Lawrence, coach of Rusea’s, told The Gleaner.”Our aim remains to qualify to the next round, and that means whether or not we win the zone. But we are very confident and optimistic about our chances,” he said.The ‘Russians’ were left ruing after squandering a plethora of chances against Cornwall College in their big derby match on Saturday.Meanwhile, Frome Technical (four) will have a chance to advance to the Flow Super Cup if they manage to win against leaders St James High (six) in one of three scheduled matches at Jarrett Park.

Everlasting stain on President

first_imgDear Editor,In speaking, the Caribbean Court of Justice has made a mockery of Government and left an everlasting stain on the legacy of President David Granger.Under the guise of a right to judicial redress, Government instead engaged in an abuse of the judicial process at the expense of taxpayers, thereby pushing Guyana towards an area of darkness.All that has been achieved, if anything, is an intentional delay of the people’s right to vote in a timely manner, and an opportunity to further undermine the electoral process. This is a whole lot.Sincerely,Rakesh Rampertablast_img

Unemployment, drugs among hot button issues

first_imgLGE– as AFC candidates face media scrutinyYouth unemployment, drugs and the lack of property maintenance are among the issues the Alliance For Change (AFC) will be campaigning on, with the party introducing two candidates even as Local Government Elections (LGE) fast approach.On Friday, just a few days before Local Government Elections, the AFC brought out two of its candidates to face the media. The candidates were Valencia Wren, who is contesting in Mocha/Arcadia and Allison Mohamed of the Diamond/Grove Neighbourhood Democratic Council (NDC).Wren explained what some of the hot button issues were for her party and the problems in her constituency. One thing she referenced was youth unemployment and the need for a skills training centre to be constructed.“Since we would have won General Elections in 2015, a lot of work still hasn’t been done and it is our aim that we can do much more. So far we’ve been cleaning the drains. There are a lot of issues. Youth (unemployment) is a pressing issue.”“And I believe that if a skill centre is placed in the village, it can decrease the amount of unemployment and the high selling of drugs on the corner. I emphasise on drugs because there’s nothing else for the youths to do… these are some of the issues the residents would have expressed during our workarounds.”Mohamed was critical of the current state of the Diamond/Grove NDC, using the condition of the roads as an example. As such, she was asked about the recentDiamond/Grove NDC Chairman, Bharat Narinepraise that very Council’s Chairman received.The Chairman, Bharat Narine, was recently hailed as the best performing NDC Chairman in Region Four by several of his colleagues. Narine is a member of the People’s Progressive Party.“I personally believe it has a lot to do with administrative staff. I don’t know much about the Chairman. I’ve met him on several occasions. He’s very pleasant. He’s very helpful. He assists when he can in the NDC. I believe it has to do with the administration,” Mohamed said. Mohamed emphasised the need for persons to come out and vote, as they can always hold such persons accountable and vote them out. It is a message reiterated by the party’s Chairman, Khemraj Ramjattan, who however expressed concerns about the level of voter education impacting turnouts on November 12.A few months ago, the AFC had announced that they will be contesting the LGE on November 12, separate from the A Partnership for National Unity (APNU). This decision was reached following the inconclusive negotiations with APNU, the party had stated.At the same time, it had maintained that this decision only applies for the 2018 LGE and does not affect the APNU/AFC coalition Government, nor does it, change the AFC’s position on coalition politics at the national level. At a press conference following this announcement, Trotman had struck a matter of fact tone. In fact, Trotman claimed the decision was made since last year. “Since last year we decided that we were going to contest the elections independently and we spoke to APNU about the matter. There were little points on which we were able to come to an agreement on.At the national level, it was easy to say 60/40, but LGE is different and it wasn’t easy coming with that same share to the table. Both sides sought to find common ground, but it didn’t materialise because of the particulars… but we still remain cordial on the matter,” he said.“Going independently will refresh and strengthen the coalition for 2020, so that the people will get the best of both parties. Being in Government sometimes makes you complacent and you lose touch with the people and the coalition needs to be refreshed. This will augur well for us. We expect to be in competition with each other, but in battle with the PPP,” he had added.last_img read more

Go make history of your own, Kerr tells Gor

first_img“It is good, the club prides itself with the 1987 squad that won the Mandela Cup. That is good. But, what I tell these players every day, make history for yourselves. Let everyone now talk about the 2018 squad and not the 1987 one,” Kerr said speaking to Capital FM’s Saturday Music and Sports show.He added; “We have a chance, we have a good squad to do it and I believe we can make history for this club.

A win against Rayon on Sunday will book them a ticket to the quarters and if USM drop points in Tanzania, K’Ogalo will only need a point in their final group match to top.“The most important thing for us is Sunday and ensure qualification. Matters of topping the group can come later but once we have the three points and through, that is what matters to us,” the coach added.he also noted; “I am confident we are going to the Quarter finals and if we do go on and win, we will be at the final. I can assure you.”Kerr says he is hugely impressed with how his side has prepared for the game on Sunday, saying he likes their spirit and desire and hopes they can replicate that on match day.“I watched them in training and honestly I was hugely impressed. The desire, the passion, the work rate… I just stood out there and I was looking at them like.. wow! I just want to translate that on the pitch. We are playing on a good surface so we should be able to get things going,” the coach added.Eye on the ball: Gor Mahia’s Humphrey Ochieng controls the ball during their CAF Confederations Cup match against YangaHe will miss the services of goalkeeper Boniface Oluoch who has failed to recover in time after injuring his shoulder while striker Ephraim Guikan is also ruled out after picking an injury following a collision with the Chemelil Sugar goalkeeper during their league clash last Thursday.Jacques Tuyisenge is also not at 100 pc fitness and might be limited in his playing time, but Kerr says he knows he will have a strong squad.The tactician also has a challenge at left back with Godfrey Walusimbi out working on a move to Soith Africa’s Kaizer Chiefs.Philemon Otieno who has been the team’s patch up star might make an appearance at left back having played there against Bandari and Posta Rangers.

Fantasy Premier League tips 2016/17: Nine players you should consider captaining

first_img 1: Harry Kane (Tottenham) – £10.0m – Click the right arrow to see the next player – Last year’s golden boot winner, we know Harry Kane’s not shy when it comes to scoring goals. Spurs face a tough-looking opening fixture away at Everton, but if they do pick up three points as expected, we know who we’ll be expecting to score their goals! 9 4: Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal) – £11.0m – Click the right arrow to see the next player – With Giroud not back from the Euros in time to feature, most Arsenal fans fancy Alexis Sanchez to start up front for them against Liverpool on Sunday. For this reason alone, if you have Sanchez, you have to take him into consideration when selecting your captain. 3: Shane Long (Southampton) – £6.5m – Click the right arrow to see the next player – Similarly to Negredo, Long is one of the Fantasy Premier League’s cheaper strikers and he also has a convenient first fixture as Southampton play host to Watford on the opening day. If Long opens his account early on in the new campaign, he will be a worthwhile captain. 9 2: Alvaro Negredo (Middlesbrough) – £6.5m – Click the right arrow to see the next player – Alvaro Negredo’s ‘Boro host Stoke in what is a relatively nice opening fixture for them upon their return to the top flight. The ‘beast’ is back in England, but will he be straight back among the goals at his new club? If he is, the Spaniard could be a great outside shout to captain. 9 9 9 7: Jamie Vardy (Leicester) – £10.0m – Click the right arrow to see the next player – Or perhaps a safer choice than Mahrez, if you have both to choose between, would be Jamie Vardy. His goal against Manchester United in the Community Shield shows he certainly hasn’t lost his magic touch over the summer and so he could well end up giving Hull’s defence at torrid time. 8: Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Manchester United) – £11.5m – Click the right arrow to see the next player – Selecting Zlatan as your gameweek one captain is certainly a risk, however he has already opened his account for the Red Devils in the Community Shield. If Ibrahimovic can adapt to the Premier League as quickly as he has most leagues in Europe, you should consider picking him as your main man. 9 5: Eden Hazard (Chelsea) – £10.0m – Click the right arrow to see the next player – Eden Hazard has looked back to his best lately, scoring multiple times for Chelsea in pre-season. But will he be able to translate these performances into actual Premier League goals? If he can Chelsea’s Monday night opening fixture against West Ham might be one worth waiting for. 9 9 9 It’s only gameweek one and already the big decisions are rolling in thick and fast.Having gone through the ordeal of picking your team, changing your team, picking your team again and changing your team again, it’s now time to select your captain.The good news is, once again, we’re here to help and we’ve suggested nine possible players you might want to consider as captain for your Fantasy Premier League side this week.Check out which players you could captain by clicking the right arrow above… 6: Riyad Mahrez (Leicester) – £9.5m – Click the right arrow to see the next player – Nobody knows how Leicester are going to begin the new season as defending champions. They play the first fixture of the entire season when they face Hull, who many tip for relegation, in Saturday’s early kick off. As for Mahrez, if he starts this season the way he ended the last one, he could be a great choice for week one’s captain. 9: Sergio Aguero (Manchester City) – £13.0m – Click the right arrow to see the next player – Obviously, for those who can afford him, the first choice for gameweek one’s captain is Sergio Aguero. Man City’s front man is £13.0m for a reason and his team play Sunderland at home on the first weekend of the season. What’s not to like?last_img read more
