‘Let’s hope Kane takes the corners!’ – Scotland great says a win is unlikely

first_img1 Harry Kane is in good form going into the World Cup qualifier at Hampden Graeme Souness knows Scotland’s chances of beating England when they welcome their rivals to Hampden Park on Saturday are slim.Souness, one of Scotland’s greatest players, played 54 times for his country, appeared in three World Cups and also played against the Three Lions on a number of occasions.However, the former midfielder thinks a win for Gordon Strachan’s team in the World Cup qualifier is unlikely unless England are having a particularly bad day, or Gareth Southgate puts Harry Kane on corner taking duty.“The English lads won’t have the feeling they’re going into the lions’ den,” he told the Sunday Times.“They’re entitled to believe they can go up there and turn Scotland over. For us to get a result we must have an exceptionally good day and they must have an exceptionally bad one.“Let’s hope Harry Kane is taking a lot of corners,” he joked in reference to the Tottenham striker’s role at Euro 2016, something manager Roy Hodgson was widely criticised for.Souness is wary of the attacking threat Kane poses, though, after the striker scored 29 Premier League goals to win a second successive Golden Boot award. It was also the third season on the bounce where Kane has surpassed the 20-goal mark and Souness was quick to point out that scoring with such consistency in the league is not easy.England beat Scotland 3-0 in a World Cup qualifier at Wembley in November 2016 and even though Souness thinks that scoreline flattered Southgate’s men, they still deserved to win. However, it was a different story the last time England were north of the border.“They won’t have any fears about going to Glasgow if they remember what happened in the friendly at Celtic Park in 2014,” Souness said.“When England beat Scotland 3-1 then, it looked like a team from the top half of the Premier League putting away a mid-table Championship side.”last_img read more

Minister McHugh’s personal assistant to stand in local elections

first_imgWith just six weeks remaining to the close of nominations for the local elections, Fine Gael has set out their stall this week to have at least one female councillor in Lifford after the May local elections.The possibility of a candidate based in Fanad has now emerged with confirmation that Eimer Friel, the personal assistant to Minister Joe McHugh has entered the race for a nomination in Milford.The Tirconail Tribune reports today that a groundswell of grassroots support has been ongoing in the past ten day to have her name added to the FG ticket. Since 2014, FG has been represented by six male Councillors in Lifford despite their original plans back then to give top priority to gender balance in their representation.However their nominations for Letterkenny are of most interest: among names identified by party sources as potential candidates joining Jimmy Kavanagh include Bernie Moran along with another mystery guest on the night!A party spokesman said they will hold a meeting in the Raddison Hotel on Monday night at eight o’clock to confirm final details of their candidates.Meanwhile FF has completed its list for Letterkenny with Donegal Rally Champion Manus Kelly from Glenswilly added to the panel by the National Executive at the weekend. Fianna Fail is to undertake a ‘Training Day’ for their female local election candidates with Mary O’Rourke as special guest on Sunday next in the Sheraton Hotel, Athlone at 1.00pm.And if Donegal supporters thought the Longford Arms was a journey too far last Friday, God only knows how they well react to this news.Ireland’s most legendary Cllr. Ian McGarvey has confirmed his intention to run and as he approaches his 90th birthday he will enter the annals of Irish history as the longest serving figure since the days of Finn MacCumhaill: the hunter-warrior of Irish mythology who built the Giant’s Causeway… £50 billion pounds under budget and a hundred years ahead of schedule.Ian’s just returned from Rudelstadt in Germany where he led a Council delegation for the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations accompanied by Cllr. Jimmy Kavanagh of FG.Cllr. Michael McBride has decided to run in Letterkenny and says it was the most difficult decision of his life with the Boundary Commission splitting his vote 50/50 between Letterkenny and his home area of Milford. However the McBride decision to run in Letterkenny has added to the vacuum in the Milford area.It is estimated that there are now at least 2,100 votes up for grabs and this puts pressure on all parties to win over these votes and Fianna Fail will be tempted to have a bash at securing a second seat in Milford.The new three seater looks like having at least eight runners: Cllrs Liam Blaney FF: John O’Donnell and Ian McGarvey (Independents): Noel McBride, Eimer Friel (FG): Maria Doherty (SF); Declan Meehan and Charlie McGinley (Independents).In recent days it has emerged from Fine Gael sources that a number of females have been sounded out about running for the party across all electoral areas (bar North Inishowen), with mixed reactions reported. Fine Gael sources say the most positive news for them is the emergence of Eimer Friel in Fanad as a candidate.At the same time another candidate, Charlie McGinley from Gortnabrade has confirmed he will run on an Independent ticket.For many it will not be any big surprise that FG’s Eimer Friel has emerged as a front runner for a nomination. However a final decision remains to be made by the national executive over the weekend.It is known that Ms. Friel has drawn a groundswell of support and has been strongly backed by grassroots members right across the Milford Area where their convention has already selected Noel McBride.It’s reported in FG circles that the party has been in consultation with at least four possible candidates in Letterkenny. However the only comment from a source was that they are aiming high to get two Cllrs in this electoral area… that could see two more candidates added to the list of nominations.Cllr. Michael McBride has finally come down on the side of contesting Letterkenny after much soul searching. He said that so much of his work in the community is based in Kilmacrennan and around An Craoibhin in Termon where he’s invested so much of his energy in recent years. He will continue that work in the years ahead.Cllr. McBride described this as the most difficult decision he has had to make in his political life.He said: “Following the Boundary Comission’s report the Letterkenny Municipal Area has now divided into two new areas Letterkenny (7 seats ) and Milford (3 seats).”Mc Bride’s vote has almost split in half and has forced him to consider many issues and facts in arriving at his decision. Speaking to the Tribune this week Michael McBride said: “This decision has not been taken lightly and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my constituents in the Milford area for their support over the past 15 years in political life, my door will always be open to anyone who feels I can help them at any time.”Cllr McBride is now facing a massive challenge to secure a seat in Letterkenny. However he has a base of 500 votes there and is well-known and the fact that it’s a 7 seater may well be a factor in his decision. He added: “This will not be an easy assignment but I feel I am well equipped for the challenge following my 8 years experience serving the people of Donegal on the county Council.I am privileged to have served as the first Mayor of the Letterkenny Municipal Area in 2014/2015.“I have assembled an experienced political team to spearhead my campaign who I believe can help me deliver a seat come 26th of May.”Cllr Mc Bride believes his knowledge of the rural and urban areas and his vision for the developement of Letterkenny in a balanced way as the economic driver to facilitate the economic development of our county so as Donegal people can chose to live here.“I have worked for the people of the Letterkenny area as I promised I would in 2014 and I currently serve on almost 20 committees both at local and county council level.“I am asking the public to support my campaign as I feel I have shown that given a mandate by the people that I have the vision and the comittment to deliver on a raft of issues that challenge us on a daily basis in our day to day lives.”He will again run a poster free campaign.Charlie McGinley is a native of Gortnabrade and is contesting his first election. He’s been involved in retail and wholesale retail business for more than 35 years and spent four years in the manufacturing business. He’s run a licensed premises, owned a bakery (An Greim Gásta) and a café and is a Commissioner of Oaths.He’s a well-known figure locally in the Mevagh, Ramelton and Fanad areas, from where he hopes to draw a large slice of his vote. He will also anticipate that as an Independent candidate he may get a fair share of the Donal Cullen vote.He’s planning to launch his campaign in the coming weeks.Triple Donegal International Rally winner, Manus Kelly, is set to contest the upcoming local elections in the Letterkenny Electoral Area.The Glenswilly native has been added as a third candidate on the Fianna Fail ticket. He joins sitting councillor, Ciaran Brogan, and retired principal teacher, Donal Coyle.The Letterkenny-based businessman received the backing of outgoing FF councillor, James Pat McDaid, who is stepping down due to work commitments.Kelly told the Tribune: “I have always had a huge interest in politics and Fianna Fail has been my party of choice… It was just a question of timing.“For some time I have imagined one day entering the political arena with the hope of representing the people, businesses and communities of Letterkenny and surrounding areas.“I didn’t think that day would arrive as quickly as it has, and with a family, business and sporting commitments I needed to make sure that the timing was right for me.“Having taken time to consult with those closest to me and having put measures in place I am both humbled and excited by the opportunity to stand in the upcoming local elections, with a view to representing the people of the area as well as I can.“I feel the time is right for me now to make the step into the political arena. I’m really looking forward to the campaign and to working with my party colleagues who have been a great source of support to me,” he added.Minister McHugh’s personal assistant to stand in local elections was last modified: March 21st, 2019 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:Eimer FrielelectionFanadFine Gaellast_img read more

Giants go quietly in ninth straight loss

first_imgSAN FRANCISCO — The Giants wasted a gem of a pitching performance Monday night. And so the defeats go on.Derek Rodriguez, the 26-year-old rookie who should certainly garner some Rookie of the Year votes, allowed two runs (one earned) over 6⅓ splendid innings, but Giant hitters managed only three hits of their own and lost to the Atlanta Braves before an announced crowd of 35,996 at AT&T Park.The loss was the ninth in a row for the Giants, who remain winless in September.The game was tied 1-1 …last_img

Nepad launches e-Schools in SA

first_img18 April 2007Technology was vital to pulling Africa out of poverty, President Thabo Mbeki said at the South Africa launch of the the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (Nepad) e-Schools demonstration project in Bushbuckridge, Mpumalanga on Tuesday.Since Nepad approved the initiative in 2003, it has begun rolling out in Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Mauritius, Rwanda and Uganda. It will be rolled out in another 12 countries later this year.The ultimate aim is to extend the programme, currently in a pilot stage, to around 600 000 schools across the continent over the next 10 to 20 years.Schools taking part in the project are equipped with a computer laboratory containing at least 20 personal computers, a server and network infrastructure, as well as peripherals such as scanners, printers and whiteboards.“This project is helping our young ones to acquire knowledge and the capacity to use their brains to change our country and continent for the better,” Mbeki told teachers and pupils at the Maripe Secondary School on Tuesday.South African schools to benefit from the project include Maripe, Isiphosethu High in KwaZulu-Natal, Kendrick Makapan in North West, Lomahasha Secondary in Mpumalanga, Thozamisa High in the Eastern Cape and Ipetleng Secondary in Free State.The Nepad e-Africa Commission’s deputy chairperson, Henry Chaisa, said the project aimed to create a critical mass of African youngsters with the information and communication technology skills that were crucial to doing business in today’s world.South Africa’s deputy education minister, Enver Surty, said the project was about more than providing students with computers. “It’s not only about computers,” Surty said. “We need to re-skill our teachers so that the skills can filter down to the learners.”Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

‘Fighting for their fate’: Chinese kids adopted by MMA club

Wilmington Little Leagues Latest Game Summaries

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — Below are a couple of recent Wilmington Little League game summaries:AAA: Astros vs. Pirates on Saturday, May 4, 2019 at Boutwell FieldAnother hard-fought game was waged between the Pirates and the Astros. After leading for most of the game, the Pirates were unable to hold off the tenacious Astros, falling 10 to 8 in 5 innings. Mickey Moroney was stellar for the Pirates in his first game on the mound pitching two solid innings. With some timely hitting, the Pirates held leads of 4 to 1 and 5 to 3 into the middle innings. The Astros’ starter Dylan Costantiello struck out one and made a nice play in the field during his inning of work. Tony Cummings then pitched three innings, striking out seven and making two plays of his own. Finally, Cael Considine baffled the Pirates’ hitters in the last inning, striking out two. Solid fielding is emerging as one of the Astros’ strengths. Considine’s two putouts at first base, Aidan Raposa’s great play at third for an unassisted putout, and Owen Wills snaring a sharp grounder at third holding the Pirates’ batter to a single were three examples. Every Astro found his way on base during the game led by Kevin Pruslin, John Roofe, Patrick Moriarty, and Jake Gryglik who were each on base three times. Roofe continued his hot hitting with a single and a booming double. Moriarty ripped two singles as the other player with a two-hit afternoon. Raposa launched a screaming single up the middle in the third inning and Pruslin, Cummings, Considine, Andrew Santo, and Kyle Price added singles of their own. Costantiello, Connor Jamieson, Gryglik, and Wills were among those who displayed their keen batting eyes working walks and Gryglik again showed his blazing speed with a stolen base. The final rally included clutch hits and walks by Roofe, Santo, Raposa, Jamieson, and then the game-winning single by Moriarty scoring Santo. Overall, the Pirates and Astros left it all out on the field and had a great time doing so!Single A: Ray vs. Pirates on Monday, May 6, 2019 at Boutwell FieldThe Pirates and Rays played a close game. The Rays made several great plays and had strong pitching performances from Michael Crowley, Tommy Roofe, and Ryan Doherty. Defense was impressive tonight featuring great plays by Brendan Cyr and an impressive inning as catcher by Sean Witalisz. The bats were alive early on with some big hits by Benji Hebert, Alex Sullivan, Chris Gattineri, Jackson Childs, and Cameron White. The Pirates were led on the mound by Zach Maiella, Ryan Biggins, and Bart Zaino, while Joshua Lopez and Colby O’Brien were strong behind the plate. Jack Jamieson had a great defensive game at first base as well. The bats were on fire early, with Nico McCollem starting things with a leadoff hit. Bradley Stephen, Sam Beaudoin, and Sean Theodos joined in with their own timely hits, and Ben Sawyer showed off his speed running the bases.(NOTE: Summaries provided by the Wilmington Little League.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.
