Molynes hoping for Christmas miracle

first_imgThe story of Icarus, who flew too close to the sun before plummeting to the Earth, comes to mind when you think about the topsy-turvy campaign Molynes United have been having in their maiden season of the Red Stripe Premier League.The league debutants were riding high on confidence when they made their first few appearance in top flight football as they won their first six matches with impressive victories over defending champions Portmore United, UWI FC, Arnett Gardens, and Mount Pleasant. Fortunes quickly changed however for the league’s newcomers who went on to endure a 12 game winless streak and have fallen from their high perch of second in the league to just above the brink of relegation.Calvert Fitzgerald, the man given charge over the team after the departure of Lijyasu Simms, admits that while the club does have a few players marked as possible transfer targets, the main focus right now is to motivate the current crop of players.“The team started well, unbeaten in six games so obviously [Lijyasu Simms] was doing something well, so whatever went wrong, that will be what I’ll be trying to fix,” Fitzgerald said. “A few new players have shown interest and we’re taking a look at them, but so far, we’ve not finalised any transfers.”Coming into the job, Fitzgerald acknowledged that it would not be an easy fix as the string of poor results had impacted the players’ motivation heavily and hampered their play. He says that a major problem that he has identified so far is lack of fitness.“As you know, the Premier League is a very physical and hard-running league, so if you fall off the pace, you’re not going to be able to compete. It’s a long process to get fit but it’s easy to lose that fitness and I think that’s what happened,” he said.The team still has high expectations for their season as Fitzgerald says that while they maybe be just above the relegation zone, a single win may see them getting back into the thick of things. -Gregory Brycelast_img read more

Disability Journalism Programme visits Royal Photographic Society

first_imgStudents and staff from Claremont and New Fosseway schools met with Director General Dr Michael Pritchard FRPS, to share their recent video and portrait photography experiences, as well as enjoying a private showing of the stunning ‘Altered Ocean’ exhibition by Mandy Barker.Organised by Ian Rice Photography, the morning at the RPS allowed the students the opportunity to discuss and share techniques developed, subjects explored and memories made-including the historic win over Saracens at Ashton Gate Stadium in April.A wheelchair user himself, as well as a self-identified “product” of the Foundation’s Disability Journalism Programme, Ian Rice’s own journey as a photographer began with photographing the Bristol Bears Wheelchair Rugby team eighteen months ago, as well as becoming an accredited photographer for Bristol Bears European fixtures-on hand to capture Andy Uren score a memorable try in the victory over Zebre earlier in the season. “Since catching Andy slide over the whitewash it really has been a whirlwind,” said the founder of Ian Rice Photography.“I have been elected a member of the International Sports Press Association, photographed the British Olympic and Paralympic teams and even had the opportunity to cover the Royal Opera.”For me, the visit to the RPS today was the culmination of extensive research into the value of photography in helping with mental health issues and learning.”Programme Manager Kris Tavender said: “The meeting with the RPS was a great opportunity for our students to discuss their work but also for staff to explain benefits gained from the recent pilot focussing on a more dynamic participation in events – where the students have got out and about and really been let loose to be creative with their photography.”We are indebted to Ian for his passion for photography, passion for the Foundation’s work and above all his passion for our young people.”To explore Ian’s work further go to https://www.ifrphoto.com/For more information on the Disability Journalism Programme contact ktavender@bristolbearsrugby.comlast_img read more

Steve Spurrier knew better than other coaches not to linger

I’m the head coach. It’s time for me to get out of the way.”Over and over, as Spurrier crept closer to a 70th birthday that would ultimately serve as the threshold for his effectiveness at South Carolina, he kept repeating this promise: The moment things started going bad, he would simply walk away. When any coach starts losing, Spurrier would say over, everybody knows you’ve got to let someone else give it a try.And damned if he didn’t live up to it.How Steve Spurrier left a permanent stamp on college footballCriticize Spurrier if you wish for abandoning the Gamecocks in the middle of a going-nowhere season, leaving his players and assistants to lose more games while he plays golf and bathes on Florida’s Crescent Beach.But say this for Spurrier: It’s better than the alternative that so many feared.Spurrier, unlike too many of his contemporaries, didn’t need to be told when it was time to go. He didn’t need to be cajoled into retirement or bargained with or placated with some phony exit strategy to keep the veneer of power. There was no need to assemble boosters behind him and wage internal warfare against an administration that recognized the need for change.Spurrier knew, and then he walked, saving his dignity and a world of drama for athletics director Ray Tanner to manage.Steve Spurrier’s 15 greatest trash-talking quotes“Yesterday, I was sort of a recruiting liability,” Spurrier said. “I was the best coach for this job 11 years ago, but I’m not today.”In the end, it really wasn’t that complicated and leave it to college football’s ultimate straight shooter to get right to the point. When South Carolina lost to Kentucky and then badly at Georgia, Spurrier saw all the signs that it was coming to an end. When the Gamecocks struggled to beat Central Florida on Sept. 26, he realized he would not make it through the season.And no, Spurrier didn’t want the losses and he didn’t want the questions that would come with hanging on for games against Tennessee, Florida and Clemson. If that’s shirking responsibility, so be it.The 14 greatest GIFs of Steve Spurrier’s careerBut Spurrier had already played his final card before the season when he talked about his longevity at SEC Media Days and his belief that South Carolina, coming off a 7-6 season, was close to contending in the division again. Then, when more questions came about how long he wanted to coach and speculation he almost called it quits in 2014, he came back and angrily delivered the message that he would be coaching at South Carolina for years to come.“Now that we’re 7-6, some of our enemies want to make you think Spurrier’s gettin’ old, can’t do it anymore,” he said at an impromptu news conference in late July. “Some people are gonna try to convince you that our 7-6 isn’t as good as some other schools’ 7-6.”As it turned out, Spurrier can’t do it anymore, and it was becoming more obvious every week. No matter how may doctors reports he could trot out about his good health, a 70-year old Spurrier wasn’t going to convince top-level players and their families that he would be there for four or five more years.Follow the road to the 2015 College Football Playoff at The Football Four, our home to rate and debate the nation’s best.

Error Code: VIDEO_CLOUD_ERR_VIDEO_NOT_FOUND Though that isn’t guaranteed for anyone in this notoriously unstable business, there comes a point where it is impossible to overcome. That moment came for Spurrier last season when South Carolina didn’t live up to expectations and recruits, fearful that he would retire, began to bail.There were no more Jadeveon Clowneys or Marcus Lattimores on which to bank the future, and a coach who had chastised others like Bobby Bowden for hanging around too long wasn’t going to let the same thing happen to him.“When something is inevitable, I believe you do it right then,” Spurrier said.ImgurOf course it was temping to hold onto those visions of going out on top, of leading South Carolina to that elusive SEC title and being carried out on the Georgia Dome on the shoulderpads of his players. But Spurrier’s entire life has been a storybook, from the Heisman Trophy to winning an ACC title at Duke to the dominant run at Florida to his seemingly perfect marriage to his improbable second act at South Carolina. It’s OK for the final chapter to end so abruptly and imperfectly.“Nothing goes on forever,” he said. “I’ve gone on a lot longer than most people.”And then he was done, finished with questions and reflections and ready to get in another workout or go hit golf balls or whatever the now Former Head Ball Coach, as he rebranded himself Tuesday, wanted to do.“Let’s get moving,” he said. “I’ve had enough here.”Enough, indeed.GALLERY: STEVE SPURRIER THROUGH THE YEARScenter_img Sep 3, 2015; Charlotte, NC, USA; South Carolina Gamecocks head coach Steve Spurrier reacts during the second half against the North Carolina Tar Heels at Bank of America Stadium.

Grand jury returns first indictments of the year

Brighton and West Ham linked to World Cup striker, €10m would…

first_imgBrighton and West Ham continue to be linked to the Benfica striker Haris Seferovic, in a race which doesn’t seem any close to an end. The interest from the Premier League clubs had first been reported in England, and was backed up by Portuguese newspaper O Jogo earlier this month.Now the outlet continues to follow the saga, this time covering claims from Turkey, where it’s been said that Galatasaray would be keen on the striker as well.The Turkish side would be preparing an offer for the next few days, something that is well expected at Benfica, since the club want Seferovic gone this summer due his lack of minutes at the Lisbon side.Embed from Getty ImagesO Jogo claims that Benfica are looking to make €10m with his sale, and once again mentions that Brighton and West Ham would both be interested in taking him.Seferovic is currently playing at the World Cup for Switzerland. He has started both games, against Brazil and Serbia, but is still to score a goal in the tournament.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoDating.comThe Most Handsome Men In Hong Kong On This Dating SiteDating.comUndoStanChart by CNBC CatalystDigitization in Banks Is No Longer About Efficiency, but Business Resilience.

infrared41’s Best and Worst 2016 – NFL Week 15

Colts – Vikings: Another great looking game. Two more of the very best uniforms in the game. Time to trot out the “any other week and this one takes the top slot” bit. A possible contender for game of the year? Maybe. They all should look this good. This topic is now closed to further replies. infrared41 8,670 Posted December 22, 2016 I thought the Falcons looked darn near perfect. I prefer that look with silver pants myself, but even still I can’t help but applaud that set. A far more clean and timeless look than their current Arena League garbage, which looks so stuck in 2004 that I nearly hear Howard Dean screaming in the background every time I see it.  Share on other sites 7,146 2 Posted December 22, 2016 Of course, the uniforms are the only redeeming thing about watching this train wreck.

Lions – Giants: I didn’t feel like looking it up, but it seems like the Lions have made the best list at least 12 of the 15 weeks this season. That’s what a decent uniform and a good schedule can do for a team. 49 minutes ago, infrared41 said: Location:New York Potentially unpopular opinion: I actually prefer the Falcons’ black helmet with those throwbacks than the red helmet. The red helmet always stood out like a sore thumb to me, since it didn’t match any of the other uniform elements (jerseys, pants, or socks). Maybe Red/Black/White/Red would look good, but I think I’d still prefer B/B/W/B. Slap a white/red/white stripe on that helmet (preferably with the red larger than the two white stripes), and you’d have the perfect Falcons primary uniform, IMO. 1. Rams – Seahawks: I like Seattle’s neon green – in moderation. Head to toe neon green was…to be kind…a tad much. If highlighters played football, this is what it would look like. Then we have the Rams who couldn’t decide which era to represent so they decided to represent as many eras as they could. As much as I like the old blue and white helmet, I have to admit that it looked terrible combined with the Rams current uniform. All I ask is that people don’t judge the blue and white helmet based on that uniform. This game was pure garbage.

This year, the Packers returned the favor and wore that awful Acme Packer get up. This week, we finally got the proper uniform match up between these two teams and it was the easy choice for the #1 slot on the best list. Two of the very best uniforms in the game and a contender for best match up of the year. Every game should look this good. 3,760 3. 49ers – Falcons: Nice to see the Falcons back on the best list. This fauxback isn’t their best look, but it’s still a really good look and it’s a whole lot better than the primary set. Atlanta needs to go to the pre-one helmet rule throwbacks. The 49ers looked great as usual.  Favourite Logos:I have some.

However, President of the GJA, Raule Archer has refuted the claims.Yesterday, Elcock hosted a media conference where he described the challenges he has faced since returning to Guyana.The world rated fighter said he “has been having a hard time from the GJA.” Elcock states that he has been in constant communication with the association since April last year and is yet to get any definitive answer from the body as it pertains to his quest for making his debut under the Guyana flag.Elcock has represented Canada and pointed out that he does not necessarily have to represent Guyana but wants to since it’s the land of his birth.He also expressed confidence that he can medal at the Olympics. However, the young man pointed out that all it will take is an email to the international Judo Federation from the Guyana representation signaling his new domain which would then see the international body contacting the Canadian body to confirm both sides.But while this may be so, Elcock stated that he has never been contacted with positive news but only received negative feedbacks on frivolous excuses such as executive members being occupied with other work and they were sending it to the wrong email.This led to Elcock labeling the body as one which seems to be incompetent or incapable of dealing with the responsibility of the association. Elcock said he was baffled by the actions of the executives adding that he has  stated that he will be providing his own coach, management, sponsors and all other requirements but still has not been given the go ahead.When contacted by Stabroek Sport Archer, expressed shock at the actions of Elcock noting that his conclusion is unjust.Archer noted that according to his diary, Elcock only made contact two weeks ago and his application has since been filed through the right body and representations that need to be informed of such moves. Archer acknowledged that Elcock is a good fighter and Guyana could benefit a lot from him but seemed puzzled of the situation, hinting that there were no reasons why the association would hinder his ventures.The GJA President reminded this publication that the association is affiliated with the world body as well as the Caribbean and Pan American body while making it clear that there is no bad blood between the two and assured that his chances of  representing Guyana will be possible barring unforeseen circumstances.last_img read more
