first_imgCourtney Walsh clinicsSupreme Ventures Limited (SVL) has renewed its sponsorship for the staging of this year’s Courtney Walsh Cricket Clinic.The success of the clinic in identifying and developing kids under 15 years with cricket talent islandwide has driven SVL to recommit $2.5m to the programme.The programme will run from August 11-17, with the main objective being to enhance the talent of each player who shows the potential to join Jamaica’s Under-15 team and by extension the West Indies junior teams, whilst teaching young players cricketing fundamentals on and off the field.The coordination and execution of this programme will be led by Walsh, the legendary West Indies fast bowler, and Robert Samuels, former West Indies opening batsman and Jamaica captain.”This year’s partnership gives us an opportunity to emphasise and showcase our loyalty to youth development through sports. The talent pool of young cricketers produced from the programme over the last seven years is commendable and due mainly to the vision and work of Walsh and his team as well as SVL’s strong association,” said Diahann Guy-Shepherd, sponsorships, promotions and branding manager for SVL.Clinic schedule:August 11 – Kingston and St AndrewAugust 12 – St Catherine and ClarendonAugust 15 – Manchester and St ElizabethAugust 17 – St James and Trelawnylast_img read more

first_img Adams, who led West Indies in 15 Tests and 26 ODIs, said he believed his vision was one shared by the West Indies Cricket Board and fans across the region. “I think I share a common vision with, not just the people I am employed to, but the people of the Caribbean,” the 49-year-old Jamaican noted. “[They] would like to see West Indies cricket strong again. I know we’ve been through some lean years and to share the vision – which is good competitive cricket coming out of West Indies – is something we all want to see and hopefully I can play some role in helping the region achieve that.” Adams will bring to the post the experience of a successful playing career which saw him average 41 from 54 Tests, and also feature in 127 ODIs. He also spent four seasons as head coach at English County Kent, and said the tenure there also equipped him for his current role. BRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC): Newly appointed Director of Cricket Jimmy Adams says one of the major items on his agenda is creating a structure that can lead to the establishing of a new winning culture in West Indies cricket. The former Windies Test captain, who took up the post this month, said while the success of the international teams was important, a proper developmental structure would ensure the sustainability of that success. “I think, ultimately, we all want success, we want, first-team success,” Adams told Line and Length Network. “I would back that up and say we want a structure that guarantees a certain standard of cricket, even if you’re not winning every day, but you know that with what we have from grassroots through youth cricket through the first class structure, you know that the standard will be within a certain range. “I think in terms of sustainability, that becomes critical. We want to see the first team – men’s and women – winning. I think that goes without saying, but I would also like to underpin that with a structure that would guarantee a certain standard of cricket going forward.” While West Indies have excelled in the game’s shortest version, they have slumped badly in the Test and one-day formats with performances, which have left them in the nether regions of the international rankings. The current state is a far cry from the halcyon era of the late 1970s and 1980s when the regional unit dominated world cricket in both formats. SHARED VISIONlast_img read more

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

first_imgLe Repentir Cemetery…councillors call for improved drainage over protection for deadEmotions ran abound as the Mayor and Councillors of the City of Georgetown (M&CC) debated the necessity of repairing the fence enclosing the Le Repentir Cemetery in order to prevent the upsurge of criminal activities, dumping of garbage, and vandalism of tombs.Mayor Patricia Chase-Green, at Monday’s Statutory Meeting, informed Councillors of the expected works at the cemetery. However, it was a pill too bitter to swallow for some of the councillors.An overhead view of the Le Repentir CemeteryThe Mayor brought to the attention of the Councillors that checks at the cemetery revealed a number of illegal activities being carried out there. She explained that there were pigs being reared, horses grazing, and a number of old, unused vehicles parked on the premises.“I passed there at ten to twelve last night and saw a car parked in there; I don’t know what they were doing in there.” Chase-Green used this to allude to the need for the M&CC to have proper fencing and gates at the country’s largest cemetery.The City’s administration had proposed to have the fence repaired and the gates fixed so that the cemetery could be closed at 18:00hrs and reopened at 06:00hrs every day, thus eliminating the possibility of harbouring criminals and facilitating vandalism of the tombs.After objections from a number of Councillors, Town Clerk Royston King sought to clarify the nature of the project, reiterating that the works are being done to prevent illegal activities from being carried out at the cemetery. He said it was the administrative responsibility of the M&CC to have the works done.“You can tell a lot about a nation based on the way they treat their dead and infants,” King noted.A passionate Carlyle Goring stood to oppose the matter, as he explained that a fence to the western side of the cemetery was erected some three years ago, and although it was funded by another entity, the Council still had to contribute financially for work to be done on the fence.Not only did the Councillor question the reason for the fence being re-done, but he posed what in his opinion is a more important project. “Drainage in this city is a priority!” he exclaimed.He went on to explain that the rainy season will soon be here and the drainage in the City leaves much to be desired.Councillor Goring’s sentiment was echoed by fellow Councillor Andrea Marks, who explained that the canal in her constituency (Cummings Lodge) is in dire need of a clean -up. Councillor Marks has for months been highlighting the plight of her constituency in relation to the drainage situation.In efforts to placate the demands of the other Councillors, Chase-Green noted that the drainage issue would be looked into, and that works would be done as soon as the Council has the necessary approval.Late last year, the M&CC commenced a $150 million rehabilitation exercise on the Le Repentir Cemetery to improve the overall outlook of the cemetery.The restoration work included the removal of overgrown bushes using an “environmentally friendly chemical” to help with the overgrowth and hanging trees. A contractor is also responsible for clearing and weeding all canals and waterways in the cemetery.It is the first time that the Council has hired a contractor to assist with the upkeep of the cemetery. King, earlier this month, noted that persons hired by the Council would simply weed, leaving the Council with the added responsibility of finding more money to have the cemetery cleaned again.According to King, the new arrangement with the contractor will not only help to secure the integrity of the cemetery, but will also help the Council to save money. The contractor will work along with the Council’s technical team to ensure a robust maintenance programme would be ongoing over a three-month period.The Town Clerk disclosed that the Council last year spent in excess of $80 million, while $60 million was expended the previous year on the cemetery.last_img read more

first_imgThe beginning of a new year is an auspicious time. It is time to sit back and reflect on how much happened over the past year and set out goals for the pending one.In keeping with this spirit, political leaders have once again issued the call for national unity in keeping with Guyana’s motto “One People, One Nation, One Destiny.”The People’s Progressive Party (PPP), in its message, said that the advent of a new year is generally met with excitement by some who, among other reasons, may seek a new beginning or to continue to build upon the success achieved. For others, it is met with a sense of trepidation as uncertainty over what it may bring prevails. The Party noted that 2018 was a challenging year while urging that Guyanese take time out to introspect and assess their strengths and weaknesses in the pursuit of success.“This is a time that hope must not be lost and spirits not allowed to be broken as together we endeavour to work in the best interest of our country to unlock its potential for its advancement and that of all of its people. Let us in the new year work assiduously to strengthen bonds of togetherness and brotherhood to aid in the realisation of the fundamental value of our national motto and to engage in renewal of ideas for the attainment of success,” the PPP said.Meanwhile, the People’s National Congress (PNC) noted that 2018 was a year of challenges for it and its coalition partners in Government, but assured that they would continue to work in harmony for the development of Guyana and the Guyanese people.Former President Donald Ramotar in his message said 2019 should be the year for all Guyanese to work towards a strengthened united Guyana firmly based on the principles of democracy and the rule of law.RecommitmentIn his message to the nation, President David Granger said the recent developments in the National Assembly have created opportunities for enhanced political cooperation, noting that meetings between the Government and political Opposition would take precedence in the new year as they seek to determine a way forward.“The National Assembly and the Judiciary are the bedrock of our democracy. Your Government remains committed to upholding the Constitution, preserving the rule of law and guaranteeing a safe, stable, orderly and peaceful country. We respect the courts, which protect our institutions and system of democracy,” he said.The Head of State said that Government was prepared to work with all parties in order to achieve the 2019 objectives set out in the National Budget to promote more secure borders, communities that are safer, an economy that is more resilient, a society that is more cohesive and public services that are more easily accessible.Looking back on 2018, Granger reiterated Guyana’s commitment to defending its territorial integrity, commending the decision by the United Nations’ Secretary General to have the border controversy with Venezuela referred to the International Court of Justice. He said that both the Guyana Defence Force and the Guyana Police Force are expected to be strengthened to guarantee safety and public order.last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000AFC Leopards head coach Robert Matano follows proceedings during his club’s Kenyan premier League Super Cup clash against Gor Mahia on January 28, 2017 at Nakuru’s Afraha Stadium. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 29- A red faced Robert Matano was left fuming at his players’ pre-match conduct after their 1-0 loss to arch rivals Gor Mahia in the Kenyan Premier League Super Cup at Nakuru’s Afraha Stadium on Sunday.Two days to the match, a section of players boycotted training over unpaid allowances disrupting the club’s build up to the tie and a furious Matano has now warned them of dire consequences if they repeat the same mistake. “We were not concentrated for this match and it cost us because football is mental. If you are not prepared mentally you start low pace. We only trained for one day as a team and that is not enough. We have to be focused and not distracted by small obstacles,” a furious Matano said.He further added; “I know our players did a mistake and they have to realize that. I blame them; they should take responsibility of this game and I warn they should not repeat that mistake any day. They are professional players and should focus on playing not only looking at their money.”Ingwe has been grappling with the exit of sponsors SportPesa who however seem not to have pulled both feet out of the club.According to chair Dan Mule, the club is yet to receive a penny from the betting company this year.However during the derby on Sunday the club donned a new kit brand not used last season, but surprisingly still had the sponsor’s logo.AFC Leopards players line up before the Kenyan premier League Super Cup clash against Gor Mahia on January 28, 2017 at Nakuru’s Afraha Stadium. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluGor Mahia as well donned branded kits for the game. Word has it that the sponsors might just return to the two clubs.Meanwhile, Matano has challenged the players to focus their energies on their work on the pitch and leave administrative matters to the management as he looks to turn the side that barely fought to survive last season into a title winning outfit.“I am a winner and I want to win trophies,” Matano roared as he talked of his focus for the new season.Despite the loss to Gor Mahia, Matano looked at the positives especially with the new players blended in and he believes he has confidence that his new look outfit will deliver in the new season, prime of their targets being the CAF Confederations Cup group stages.“I am very happy with them so far and I think they have done a good job. Soon enough they will gel together and we will have a very strong team. We lost 1-0 to Gor but if you compare, they have had their team together for long while we had only four players from last year’s starting 11,” the coach argued.AFC Leopards midfielder COllins Okoth dribbles the ball past Gor Mahia’s Humphrey Mieno during the Kenyan premier League Super Cup clash against Gor Mahia on January 28, 2017 at Nakuru’s Afraha Stadium.

first_imgOn Thursday next, Holy Thursday, people from across Donegal will be given a unque chance to celebrate a time of ‘Reflection through Music’ with the Donegal Chamber Orchestra.In St. Eunan´s Cathedral in Letterkenny at 2pm, the Donegal Chamber Orchestra with soloists Barbara Edwards (Soprano) and Louise Moore (Mezzo-Soprano) will perform Pergolesi’s STABAT MATER for soprano, alto, strings and organ.Giovanni Battista Pergolesi (1710-1736) was one of the most remarkable composers of the Baroque period. Despite his extremely brief career (he died of tuberculosis at 26 years of age) he left an impressive body of work that includes some of the finest pieces of sacred music ever written.His Stabat Mater composed in 1736 is Pergolesi´s best know sacred work wich has been a legend as much as a piece of music; Pergolesi literally finished the work on his deathbed.Stabat Mater is a sequence of Latin verses composed by Jacobus de Benedictis in the 13th century, in commemoration of the sorrows of the Virgin Mary.The words of the Stabat Mater are in two sections – the first part describes the anguish of Mary, standing at the foot of the cross on which her son was dying, while the latter part constitutes a prayer to the Virgin Mary. The work is traditionally performed across Europe during the Lent period and Holy week, prior to Easter.Following this tradition the Donegal Chamber Orchestra brings sacred music back to its proper place. Admission is free and all are welcome.http://www.facebook.com/pages/Donegal-Chamber-Orchestra/162763458741UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO CELEBRATE EASTER THROUGH MUSIC was last modified: March 31st, 2012 by StephenShare 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:Holy ThursdayletterkennySt.Eunan’s Cathedrallast_img read more
