first_imgPORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC):Trinidad and Tobago Red Force were propelled by Jeremy Solozano’s maiden first-class hundred, but Jamaica Scorpions were making a strong reply on the second day of their Regional First Class Championship here yesterday.Solozano, in his first outing of the championship, hit 110 to help lift Red Force to 271 in their first innings, after the hosts resumed on 145 for five at Queen’s Park Oval. Wicketkeeper Steven Katwaroo struck 45, while tail-ender Marlon Richards chimed in with 26.Seamer David Bernard Jr picked up three for 25 to spearhead the Scorpions attack.Scorpions then lost John Campbell for two to the eighth ball of the innings with the score on three, but recovered to reach 119 for three at the close.Andre McCarthy was leading the fightback on 49 and was partnered by former skipper Tamar Lambert on 12.Captain Paul Palmer made 35, his first double figure score in five innings this season.Rookie seamer Daniel St Clair struck a crucial blow before tea when he had the left-handed Campbell caught at the wicket.Palmer and Barbadian Kirk Edwards, who scored 19, then repaired the innings in a 43-run, second-wicket stand, taking the visitors to the break at 36 for one.The right-handed Edwards perished in the sixth over after tea, lbw to off-spinner Narsingh Deonarine, but Palmer combined with McCarthy to add 27 for the third wicket.Palmer, whose previous innings yielded nine runs, faced 70 balls in nearly 1-3/4 hours at the crease and stroked five fours before going bowled by leg-spinner Imran Khan.Any thoughts Red Force had of making further inroads were quickly dashed as McCarthy and Lambert, in his 97th first-class match, came together to see Scorpions safely to the close in an unbroken fourth-wicket partnership worth 46.The right-handed McCarthy has struck seven fours in a breezy 66-ball knock, while Lambert has batted just over an hour and counted two boundaries.Volcanoes beat HurricanesAT WINDSOR PARK: Windward Islands Volcanoes defeated Leeward Islands Hurricanes by eight wickets on the second day of their third-round game here yesterday.Scores: HURRICANES 24 for seven declared.

first_imgHead coach of the Sunshine Girls, Englishwoman Jermaine Allison-McCracken, has declared that she will do whatever it takes to help move the number-four ranked team to the top of the world rankings. Allison-McCracken was introduced to the media by Netball Jamaica (NJ) at a press conference held at the Social Development Foundation yesterday, a month after she was appointed to the hot seat. One of her first tasks, she said, is to improve the players physically and mentally. “There is nothing better than sitting in this seat right now. I am so pleased to be on board with these girls. I saw them last night (Wednesday) and they are working hard and I know that they are going to work a lot harder. I know that I am going to see physical improvements. I am going to see mental improvements and mental toughness because that is my specialist area. “What I have done over the past 30-40 years is to coach netball for fun, but now I can take it seriously and bring all my expertise in terms of my professional training, as well as my passion for netball and put them all together in my dream job in a paradise island,” added Allison-McCracken. TOUGH JOB She admitted that it will be tough to get Jamaica up to the pinnacle of world netball. “It is a very tough job but any international coach will have a tough job,” she said. “There are some tough decisions to make ahead but I am not going to make any of these by myself because I have Sasher-Gaye (Henry), who is my assistant and I have a really big support team and I will be using and drawing on all their expertise.” According to her, she is very familiar with the Sunshine Girls’ style of play and so this is going to make it much easier for her to work with the Jamaican players. “I have watched these Sunshine Girls over the past 20 years because anytime they are on TV, I am always tuned in,” she said. “I analyse their games, I know how they play. I am an avid fan and now I am the coach.” Allison-McCracken, who is of Jamaican parentage, brings to the position substantial training in the areas of sports psychology and netball coaching. She also holds a United Kingdom Level 2 coaching certificate.last_img read more
