first_imgThe Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) will begin its 2018 season with the senior female Inter-County tournament on February 2 while it will not be hosting the Under-19 version of the competition. According to Territorial Development Officer (TDO) attached to the GCB, Colin Stuart, the youth version has been canceled.Stuart, however, told this publication that the body will introduce a “Select Under 19 team” to feature in the competition among the seniors.Stabroek News understands that those who will be at the forefront of selection for the under-19 team which will consist of roughly 20 players will come from players who have represented the country previously and are still eligible as well as those who would have shown talent when they appeared in the GCB under-17 female franchise held in November last year and some of those who have shown potential in various communities. As of yesterday the competitions committee had not finalized venues nor fixtures but gave the assurance that this information will be available as soon as possible.Berbice Cricket Board (BCB) has voiced their disgust over the GCB’s cancellation of the youth competition which had been scheduled to begin yesterday.On the BCB’s social media account, the BCB stated “It is a huge shame how the GCB is running cricket in Guyana. They forwarded two emails to the BCB to prepare the team for the tournament that was scheduled to start on Friday 25th January. The BCB has been busy doing so for over three weeks and now they have cancelled the event.” Stuart said that there was some consideration to have the U19 tournament played but at the cricket board level it was decided that it will better served  to have the national U19s in the senior tournament to help facilitate a higher level of competition for the youth team.last_img read more

first_imgTravellers Rest Golf GroupBack to the rainy season this past week, just when you think the worst is past, back it comes with a vengeance.  All week it had been extremely hot and by mid afternoon the thunderstorms rolled in and the deluges began.  In fact as I write it is hammering down outside.  These conditions do not make it any easier for the golfers but looking at the scores this week the hardy souls of the TRGG managed to play through it and have posted good returns. On Monday 5th November (Guy Fawkes night back in England) the guys (excuse the pun) headed off to play Eastern Star.  Mike Rushant (H/cap 12) managed not to blow up his round and posted a winning total of 35pts to take first place.  Jim McNeill (15) marched into second place with 34pts and Jim Cleaver (12) came third on 33pts.Ken Brehm – winner at Green Valley.On Tuesday 6th November I arrived at our home base at the Ned Kelly Bar bright and early only to find it full of Aussies eagerly awaiting the start of the Melbourne Cup (prestigious horse race down-under) on the big screen TVs.  We were due to head off to Green Valley for a day’s golf but none of our betting contingent took the hint to back the eventual winner Green Moon.  However Ken Brehm (22), a rank outsider, played a magnificent round to gallop into first place with 41pts.  Yours truly, Andy Rich (21) stayed on to finish runner up on 37pts and Terry Smith (10) cantered into third with 36.Thursday 8th November was Phoenix as usual (Ocean and Mountain courses).  Steady Teddy Senior (14) rose from the ashes (sorry I have gone pun mad now) to fire into first position with 39pts.  Bob Watson, playing off plus one, again showed what a good golfer he is by shooting 38pts and taking second on count back from Fergus Brennan (10).On Saturday 10th November Crystal Bay (B and C courses) was the venue.  Paul Stanton (14) returned to these shores to take first place on 37pts and Magnus Alvarsson (16) strode into runners up spot with 36pts.last_img read more

Law played football at Aliquippa High School. (Photo by Kenneth Ogilvie)by Bill Neal, For New Pittsburgh CourierThere was no denying it…step-by-step as I approached the famed Aliquippa Stadium (aka the Carl A. Aschman Memorial Stadium), you could feel it, see it and without question you could smell it. If you’ve been there—done that—you know of what I speak. The smell of football grass. Once it’s in your nose you never lost it.If somehow all that doesn’t send your football radar through the roof, when the Aliquippa Mascot comes charging at you in the historic form of a painted Indian (Native American, if you will) atop a stampeding horse, you know you’re truly on the hallowed ground known as “The Pit.”You wanna talk history? Here in Aliquippa, this may in fact be where history first got defined. The legendary names are world-renowned and are forever anchored in Western Pa. sports history. You know the names: Mike Ditka, Ty Law, Sean Gilbert, Darrelle “The Island” Revis. There are others, many others, of course…including the sharing of the great Tony Dorsett between Aliquippa and Hopewell. But, these four would stand tall and proud on this high school football Friday night in August as their names were enshrined to the new football Field House reconstructed in their honor.Many of you don’t know and for that matter, probably don’t care, that I was raised in Donora, another one of the many small towns in Western Pa. that slowly saw its economic base shipped overseas and elsewhere. But, through it all, Donora managed to maintain its all-American base and dignity.As Aliquippa showcased the legends on this summer Aug. 30 evening, I think of my old stomping grounds, where Donora had their legends: Ken Griffey Sr., Malcolm Lomax, Dane Tart, Reggie Walton, Bernie Galiffa and others. It was the same, just different names.It was incredible that the family and close friends of Law, Revis and Gilbert were here to take it all in. After all, they are the ones that have been with these prominent figures through thick and thin.For those who don’t know, Ditka (who was not in attendance for the Aug. 30 event) was an incredible player who won an NFL Championship in 1963 and a Super Bowl (VI). He was the NFL Rookie of the Year in 1961, and a five-time Pro-Bowler. And let’s not forget about his induction into the Hall of Fame in 1988—just a few years after coaching his beloved Chicago Bears to a Super Bowl victory. Yes, he was that good.Law made his mark with the New England Patriots, winning three Super Bowls as part of a tough defensive group. He had 57 career interceptions, a seven-time Pro-Bowler, and was inducted to the Hall of Fame this year.Gilbert was the big fella for teams, playing defensive tackle. He played in the NFL from 1992 to 2003, and recorded 10.5 sacks in 2003 with the Los Angeles Rams, earning him a Pro Bowl spot.As for Revis, he had his own “island.” His coaches would match Revis, a cornerback, on the opposing team’s best receiver, and Revis would oftentimes win the battle. He was a seven-time Pro Bowler and won Super Bowl XLIX with the New England Patriots.This evening was made possible by Aliquippa native Kevin Cameron, my co-host on the radio show “Soul Take—Champions Live.” Also, it was made possible via the partnership with the Aliquippa coaching staff and head coach Mike Warfield (who by the way, won a state title in his first year as the new head coach…in case you’ve been under an Aliquippa rock!), the school district and of course, our good friend Mayor Dwan B. Walker, the man who just flat out gets this done. And of course we can’t forget about retired Aliquippa Athletic Director Mike Zmijanac.And there were many unforgettable moments that night. The crowd that welcomed us and our crew with the greatest hospitality ever; the families of the legends who let us in their world; and not to forget the team that treated us like part of the operation.That being said, I’ll have to live a thousand more Friday nights before I am privileged to be in the company of and have the opportunity to interview the likes of Hall of Famer Ty Law, and, in most people’s assumptions, future Hall of Famer Darrelle Revis. The only thing greater than their talent and NFL accomplishments is their humility. You only needed to witness how they “welcomed in” and interacted with the Aliquippa kids to really appreciate what true champions are made of.“Mr. Law and Mr. Revis have been visibly active in the Aliquippa community throughout their outstanding careers. Whether monetarily or being available to speak with our kids, their time and visibility to our youth is the ultimate ‘give back’ and we can’t thank them enough for it,” said current Aliquippa Athletic Director Brandon LeDonne, in an Oct. 18 statement to the New Pittsburgh Courier.This season, Aliquippa’s football team is on a roll. I mean, what else would you expect? They’re 9-0, with one game left in the regular season (Oct. 25 vs. Central Valley). Aliquippa has won a record 17 WPIAL titles, played 28 championship games, including 11 straight, three state football championships, produced 11 NFL players and two Hall of Famers.We could do another book on how, why, who, what, when, yada, yada, yada…the fact is and has always been, that Aliquippa is a football factor, but with it comes character because you can’t have one without the other.When I asked, “how do you keep producing these great football players?” a prominent Aliquippa leader simply said, “Aliquippa has heart.”(Rob Taylor Jr. contributed to this story.)

first_img23 May 2011 “In order to maintain trust, credibility and legitimacy in the eyes of its stakeholders, there must be an open and transparent selection process which results in the most competent person being appointed as managing director, regardless of their nationality,” the statement read. Sapa “For too long, the IMF’s legitimacy has been undermined by a convention to appoint its senior management on the basis of their nationality.” The appointment of the new International Monetary Fund managing director should be done through an open, transparent and merit-based process, the South African and Australian governments said on Sunday. Following the resignation of Dominique Strauss-Kahn, IMF members were asked to act decisively and select a new managing director. In selecting a new managing director it was important to adhere to these criteria agreed upon by G20 leaders in Pittsburgh this year, South African Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan and Australian Deputy Prime Minister and Treasurer Wayne Swan said in a joint statement. Gordhan and Swan said the global financial crisis demonstrated that the world needed a strong IMF and a strong managing director. “The task is urgent given the current challenges facing the global economy, including in particular the needs of low income and developing countries who rely on the IMF for support.”last_img read more
