Wolmer’s ready to shoot down CC … Coach Reynolds warns alma mater ahead of top clash

first_imgWolmer’s coach Vassell Reynolds will be going up against his alma mater and coaches who were once his schoolmates when Clarendon College face Wolmer’s in their ISSA/Flow Super Cup quarter-final today at Sabina Park.Despite the sentiments, Reynolds warned Clarendon College not to expect a warm welcome when the referee sounds the kick-off whistle at 6 p.m.St George’s College will play Glenmuir High at4 p.m in the opening game of the double-header.”I know their philosophy and style of play. I lived walking distance from the school and I used to be in primary school watching the present coach and assistant of Clarendon College now. I know how they play, and what is expected of the team,” Reynolds pointed out.Reynolds, who also represented Clarendon College in the daCosta Cup, admitted that he was an admirer of their current coach, Paul ‘Tegat’ Davis, but underlined that today is all about getting the result.”They will come here to Sabina Park against us pumped up for the Super Cup, and it’s gonna be a tough game. I don’t think they will have a third bad game. I expect a much better Clarendon team tomorrow (today),” he stressed.Reynolds believes Clarendon was not at their best against Hydel in last week’s Super Cup opening round, despite a come-from-behind 2-1 extra-time win.”From preseason, I thought they were one of the daCosta Cup favourites. I expect a good Super Cup match, good crowd, and they will be gunning to get pumped up and ready for their next game against Glenmuir,” added Reynolds.PLAYING TO STRENGTHSClarendon College will face Rusea’s and then Glenmuir in the ISSA/Flow daCosta Cup Clarendon derby soon, having lost their first quarter-final match 2-1 to Dinthill Technical.”Despite people saying we are defensive, we approach every game different. We change according to our opponents, and we try to play to our strengths,” explained Reynolds.Alphanso Gooden is Wolmer’s main attacking threat with seven goals, while Jahwahni Hinds has scored seven this season, including one in last week’s 3-1 win over Port Antonio.”We will be going all-out for the win. We are gonna go one step further than we have done so far this season. We are aiming for three finals, and we will not let Clarendon spoil that,” Reynolds told The Gleaner.last_img read more

LATE MAILEY STRIKE EARNS 10-MAN HARPS A POINT IN WEXFORD

first_imgKevin McHugh on target tonightFINN HARPS came from two goals down to earn a late late point away to Wexford Youths tonight.Home team midfielder Eric Molloy netted in the 12th minute to give his side the lead in what looked like a suspiciously off-side goal, Molloy rounding Harps keeper Patton to finish.Harps huffed and puffed in the first half but had little to show for their efforts in front of 400 fans at Ferrycarrig. And 12 minutes into the second half Wexford went two up thanks to an own goal by Harps’ Ciaran Coll.But this time Harps responded well as Kevin McHugh pulled one back within 90 seconds of the re-start.He hassled Stephen Last off the ball, won it and then struck the ball home from 12 yards.Any thoughts of a comeback appeared to be dashed however as Tommy Bonner was giving his marching orders for a high challenge – and his second yellow card. Wexford saw their chance and piled pressure on Harps but Shaun Patton was equal to several good efforts, one in the dying minutes of the 90 which was first class.A head injury to Damien McNulty forced the game to be held up for five minutes, so Harps had more injury time to play with.They went direct again, launching throw after throw into the Youths box.Home keeper Graham Doyle decided to come for one of them, misjudged it and Harps defender Packie Mailey rose highest to head the ball in for Harps.It was an unlikely point in the circumstances; but one which was well deserved. The unfortunate McNulty was taken to hospital where he is being kept in overnight as a precaution.LATE MAILEY STRIKE EARNS 10-MAN HARPS A POINT IN WEXFORD was last modified: May 31st, 2014 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)Tags:2-2drawfinn harpswexford youthslast_img read more

South African economic Ministers advance the position of the global South in BRICS trade discussions

first_imgNew Delhi, Friday 14 October 2016 – Ministers of Trade and Industry Dr Rob Davies and Small Business Development, Ms Lindiwe Zulu today wrap up their pre-BRICS Summit engagements in New Delhi, India.Download the media statementThe Ministers were attending the 6th meeting of the BRICS Trade Ministers that was held on 13 October, 2016 in New Delhi, India. The Trade Ministers meeting was preceded by the 13th meeting of the BRICS Contact Group on Economic and Trade Issues (CGETI) which was held from 11-12 October, 2016. The outcomes of the Trade Ministers meeting will be submitted to the 8th BRICS Summit to be held on 15-16 October, 2016 in Goa, India.Minister Rob Davies, speaking about the significance of these engagements, noted that the BRICS Trade Ministers meeting is taking place at a time when the global economy is faced with challenges that include key economic developments such as continued slowdown in global growth and depressed global demand, low commodity and oil prices and volatility in the equity and currency markets. Of concern is that global trade is recovering at a slower pace.Intra-BRICS exports have been growing on average at 2.8% per year since 2010. South Africa’s export basket continues to be dominated to a large extent by primary products and low-value added products.The BRICS countries present opportunities for cooperation in establishing intra-BRICS value chains and linkages among the economies. This will contribute to the industrial objectives of the BRICS countries.A welcome development has been an increase in intra-BRICS investment in key sectors of the South African economy. For example, South Africa has seen a large investment in the auto-sector by Beijing Automobile International Corporation (BAIC) which amounts to R11 billion. Minister Davies emphasised the need to increase mutually-beneficial projects among BRICS countries.Minister Davies emphasised that BRICS is an important grouping of developing economies that accounts for 22% of global GDP and 42% of the world population. It is therefore critical that BRICS countries bring an emerging market view in global discussions on trade so as to promote development-centred and inclusive growth.Furthermore, Minister Davies stressed the need for BRICS cooperation towards identification of complementarities, sharing of experiences and capacity building in a number of trade and investment related issues. He also welcomed the joint studies to inform cooperation in a number of policy areas which will assist to develop coordinated position in the multilateral fora.Minister Zulu emphasised the importance of BRICS countries cooperation on the development of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs). In this regard cooperation should be targeted towards promoting supplier development and participation of MSMEs in the BRICS countries value-chains, exchange of best practices on MSME development. She further stressed the importance of MSME in job creation.On the sidelines of the BRICS Trade Ministers meetings, the Ministers held bilateral meetings with his counterparts to discuss trade and investment issues of mutual interests.Follow the conversation on #SAatBRICS2016Brand South Africa will be pleased to facilitate any requests for interviews.last_img read more

I’m not sure. I do know he’s skillful and hopefully he gets it together because he’s a good player.”After acknowledging his lack of interest, Tomic was asked about whether he would give back his prize money because of his performance — a question he quickly shot down. He also disagreed with a suggestion that he didn’t give his best effort against Zverev.“While I do feel a bit of guilt and I’m like, maybe I could have played four or five sets,” Tomic said, “in my opinion, he played well and I was just playing terrible and I just couldn’t find any rhythm, and he deserved to win.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Pagasa: Kammuri now a typhoon, may enter PAR by weekend Lacson: SEA Games fund put in foundation like ‘Napoles case’ “I felt a little bit bored out there,” Tomic said, “to be completely honest with you.”Tomic was playing at Wimbledon for the eighth time.

Kangana has come out stronger amid controversy: Mother

first_imgNew Delhi, May 3 (PTI) Bollywood star Kangana Ranauts mother today came out in support of her actress daughter, saying the controversy surrounding her alleged relationship with actor Hrithik Roshan is “nonsense”.Asha Ranaut today turned up at the 63rd National Awards to cheer for her daughter, who was honoured with the best actress recognition for her dual role in “Tanu Weds Manu Returns”.Asha said amid Kanganas personal turmoil, her rise in Bollywood is remarkable.”I am proud of her and her achievements. I am very happy that she is at the peak of her career and has got till here only with her hardwork.”The whole controversy is nonsense. We wouldnt want to comment on it. Our lawyers will only talk about it. She is coming out stronger in these testing times,” Asha told PTI.Also present at the awards were Kanganas father, sister and brother.The 29-year-old stars father Amardeep Ranaut said it was a proud moment to see his daughter receive her third National Award from President Pranab Mukherjee here.”… I am very happy. I am a proud father and it is a matter of great pride,” he said.The actress stood out in an off-shoulder shimmery dust blue gown.She teamed her gown with a classic bob, which is similar to the look that she will be seen sporting in her upcoming film “Rangoon”.Unlike the traditional attire opted by Indian celebrities for such events, Kangana usually goes for international cotour. She had opted for a dust pink gown by India-born designer Bibhu Mohapatra in the 2014 National Awards where she was honoured for her role in “Queen”.advertisementHer first National award was in the best supporting actress category for “Fashion”.As she arrived, Kangana greeted Amitabh Bachchan, who was seated next to her and later met his family.Bachchan won the best actor honour, his fourth National Award, for his role in “Piku”.The ceremony was a welcome respite for the actress, who is engaged in a bitter fight with her “Kites” co-star Hrithik Roshan. Both the stars have slapped legal notices on each other besides engaging in a public row.Hrithik says he never had a relationship with Kangana after she referred to him as a “silly ex” in an interview. The actor claims that the actress was corresponding with his imposter.Kangana, however, maintains they had a relationship while accusing the actor of engaging in slut-shaming by releasing her private emails to him.
