first_imgExcelsior High lifted the urban area ISSA/GraceKennedy Shield cricket title for the first time in 53 years, after defeating Eltham High by 220 runs in the final at Melbourne Oval.Guided by national Under-17 batsman, Raewin Senior, bowling his part-time left-arm spin, Excelsior bowled out Eltham for 90 in their second innings on yesterday’s third and final day.This was after Eltham were set a difficult victory target of 331 at the end of day two.Eltham were bowled out for 96 in their first innings, while Excelsior made 228 and 178 in their respective innings.”We are very elated to finally get this off our backs,” stated an elated Kirkland Bailey, coach of Excelsior.”It’s been since 1963 that Excelsior last laid hands on this title and it feels good to finally take it home back to the family.”Needing to score a further 253 runs to pull off an upset win, Eltham, resuming on 58 for three, started badly by losing two wickets for the addition of two runs.This left their captain and main batsman – national Under-19 representative Ramone Francis, who batted at number six – with the Herculean task of doing damage control. He was the seventh man out when he was stumped off the bowling of left-arm spinner Rushawn Riley for 27.Riley supported Senior ended with three for 13.”We planned how to get the victory last (Tuesday) night and it worked,” Bailed explained.”Once we kept it tight, they would not have the technical competence to handle our bowling.”They have one extremely good player (Francis) and he would have to do everything for them.”Shawn Headlam, coach of Eltham, who were seeking their second title in three years and seventh overall, said he was expecting a tougher fight from his charges.”It’s a bit of a surprise how we folded,” he said. “We were a bit confident coming into the final day, given that most of our key batsmen were yet to come.”But no one wanted to stay around with the captain and in the end it cost us. It was poor cricket by us, over the three days.”He added: “We will just have to now turn our attention to recapturing the urban area Digicel Twenty20, as well as try and go on to win the all-island Twenty20.”Before Excelsior’s triumph, the closest they had reached to the title since 1963 was in 1981 and 1996 when under the leadership of Courtney Walsh and Chris Gayle, respectively, they reached the final.last_img read more

first_imgA trip to Beijing is not complete without a hop over to the world-famous Silk Market – a place of sorts where not too many things are what they say they are; and if you can’t haggle and bargain, Stay Away! I decided to follow some colleagues to the place yesterday to see how much of if it had changed at all since 2008. I had no intentions to buy anything there since I spent what I considered good money seven years ago on a bag that started changing colour the day I left China, as if it were geo-coded or something. It is said that there are high-quality, original stuff at Silk Market, and given its high-profile list of shoppers that include musical and sport stars, as well as heads of state and the likes, I want to believe it’s true. Problem is, I liked that bag and, furthermore, ‘believe’ cannot be a strong word in a place where you can get an iPhone look-a-like that would have Apple boss Tim Cook himself forking out his money. Even the ice cream tasted like a knock-off … Pfffftt; ‘Rum and Raisin’, yea right! You could count the raisins, and not even the slightest smell of rum. Still, it’s very much an experience that will leave an impression, and you just can’t help but marvel at the characters, the animated soliciting and, of course, the ingenuity and skill displayed at every shop in this massive mall. You can pretty much get anything you want at the Silk Market. From tailored suits to traditional Chinese garb; from the latest electronics (conditions apply), food, jewellery, anything. I ran into a couple other Jamaicans who were sharing a story about their first visit a couple days prior, where 2000 Chinese yuan renminbi – about US$30 or over $3,000 – which was the price a seller was quoting for a pair of pants, eventually dropped to 40 Chinese Yuan Renminbi – about US$6 or $700 – after some aggressive bargaining. That should give an idea how high ‘Mr/Mrs Chin’ setting the prices in here. Still, most Jamaicans are used to haggling and ‘bawling dung di price’ anyway, so it’s not too much of a navigational nightmare. In fact, most Jamaicans I know who have been there seem to revel in the challenge of taking ‘Mr Chin’s’ price as far down as possible – to the ground – which is what I did when negotiating the price for a sword – yes! a sword – that I had no intention of buying. ‘Ms Chin’ was tough at first, holding fast to her price. “I give you good price; that is best price.” “No, hold this (handing back sword). you tek me fi idiot. You think a war me ago fight wid the sword? Dem cheaper roun’ desso.” With a little pointing and dramatic facial expressions, everyone understands the language of haggling. You have to be clear when negotiating, no delaying … ‘yes’ or no’ right away. Serious, no smiling “This best quality.” “‘Ms Chin’, tek u sword. (Shakes head and hand) Don’t want it again. Goodbye.” A little later, 5,000RMB became 100RMB. Would have been a good session if I wanted a sword.last_img read more

first_imgNEWCASTLE, England (AP):Martin Skrtel scored his seventh Premier League own goal as relegation-threatened Newcastle upset Liverpool 2-0 yesterday.The sliding defender deflected a shot from Georginio Wijnaldum into his own net in the 69th minute at St James’ Park to give Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp his first away defeat in the league.Liverpool, who thrashed Southampton 6-1 midweek in the League Cup quarter-finals, thought they had equalised against the Magpies with 10 minutes left, but Alberto Moreno’s impressive strike was ruled offside.Wijnaldum added a second for the hosts on a counter-attack in stoppage time to reduce the pressure on head coach Steve McClaren and slightly ease relegation fears.Liverpool’s Christian Benteke and substitute Daniel Sturridge were earlier both guilty of bad misses, but the Newcastle defence proved resilient, and a midfield which had created little started to fire.The visitors’ first real chance came on 21 minutes when Dejan Lovren headed down Alberto Moreno’s corner and Benteke stabbed the ball over from close range.Newcastle took the lead when Wijnaldum’s persistence allowed him to send in a right-footed shot from a tight angle and, in his efforts to block it, Skrtel could only help the ball over goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.Sturridge fired wastefully wide after being played in down the right with 15 minutes remaining, and Lovren headed weakly at Rob Elliot as time ran down. But victory was assured four minutes into stoppage time when Wijnaldum deftly chipped Moussa Sissoko’s pass over the advancing Mignolet.After 15 rounds, Liverpool have 23 points, 10 more than 18th-place Newcastle, who are behind Bournemouth and Norwich on goal difference.last_img read more

I am hearing that they (Bridgeport) are a strong running team,” Laing told The Gleaner yesterday.He also pointed out that “our defence is tight and yet to concede this season, but we have some young players up front, so we have to be patient”.Laing’s main players include captain Akeem Chambers, Jelani Thomas and Shaquille Wright.Assistant coach of Bridgeport, Jason Grant, says his team’s approach is to win each game.LEAD THE CHARGE”It is a very important game as both teams are in the lead on points. We have to go out there and continue to work for each other,” Grant reasoned.Bridgeport will look to players such as captain Kyle Ming, Shakeem Powell and Donte Green to lead the charge for full points.In other games in the group, Calabar High will look to for their second win in four days when they face Cumberland and Hydel are highly fancied to beat lowly Campion College.Meanwhile, Kingston College (KC), with maximum nine points from three games, will look to move further ahead when they face third-placed Ascot High in Group C at the National Stadium, starting at 3 p.m.Ascot on the other hand will look to spoil KC’s record and stay in contention in the group.The Ludlow Bernard-coached KC have been the most impressive team in the competition.

first_img Zouks, however, have been one of the worse-performing sides in the tournament, but Pandya said he hoped his investment would turn around the franchise’s fortunes. “Our aim is to help drive the Zouks forward to become the dominant team in the CPL by producing consistent results that will enable us to be title contenders in every edition of CPL going forward,” the Philadelphia businessman said. He added: “We are extremely happy that the management team, with Stuart Williams as our head coach and Darren Sammy as our captain, have committed to remain with the franchise and will continue to lead it. Darren is a passionate St Lucian who leads the side with great skill and charisma and is hugely respected internationally, especially after guiding the West Indies to their second ICC World T20 title in India earlier this year. “Our executive directors are working closely with both Stuart and Darren in terms of player recruitment, the goal being to become champions of the CPL after missing out last year in the play-offs.” Zouks enjoyed their best-ever season in this year’s campaign when they finished third following the preliminaries before being knocked out in the play-offs. LONDON (CMC): United States-based real estate businessman Jignesh ‘Jay’ Pandya has bought the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) franchise St Lucia Zouks, tournament principals announced recently. Pandya is the founder of the Rohan Group of companies and also serves as chairman of Global Sports Ventures, LLC, and Royal Sports Club, LLC. Damien O’Donohoe, chief executive of the CPL, said the partnership was the result of extended discussions with Pandya’s representatives. “Discussions have been ongoing with Mr Pandya, and his represent-atives for many months and they have a clear vision for the Zouks to elevate them even higher for the seasons to come in terms of recruitment and in building all aspects of the franchise, from root to branch,” O’Donohoe said. “Their passion for the Hero CPL is obvious, with their values being closely aligned to our own to strive to be an innovative market leader, and I have no doubt that these are exciting times to be a Zouks fan.” Zouks is one of six franchises that comprise the four-year-old CPL, branded by organisers as the ‘biggest party in sport’. Reigning champions Jamaica Tallawahs, Barbados Tridents, Trinidad and Tobago Red Steel, Guyana Amazon Warriors, and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots are the other five franchises involved in the Twenty20 venture.

first_imgBattle In Jamaica Basketball Tournament organiser Ludloo Barker says that he hopes that all objectives set out at the start of the competition will be met when it wraps up on Saturday. The competition, which is in its first year, tipped-off at the University of Technology auditorium yesterday. The tournament, the result of a collaboration between CMS Sports and the University of Technology, will give young players good preparation for the CENTRO tournament next June and will continue the development of Jamaica’s basketball, especially young players. “We have no preparation for CENTRO, which is going to be tough, and, if we are going to send any of our Jamaican players, they need to be ready. JABA have the boys two Saturdays out of every month, and we have the best U-16 players together with different coaches from different conferences and getting them prepared, and this tournament will get them exposed to international competition and a high level of doing things,” he said. The inclusion of Canadian Under-17 team Brampton Elite is an added bonus for Barker, who says that this will help the players get a feel for international competitions. “We are looking at CENTRO and the development this tournament could help bring and the experience it will give our players. They will feel (what it is like to play against) an international team that is well coached, and that should give us problems and some things to figure out. But the experience will be good – win or lose,” he said. “But we hope this will continue to develop basketball because the more you play, the more experience and exposure they get, especially at a younger age,” he added. Jamaica College, Calabar, Cornwall College, and Brampton Elite will contest the under-16 championship. Calabar, Ardenne, and St George’s College will vie for the under-19 crown, while Division One teams Spartans, Panthers, Camperdown, UTECH, and EXED will compete for the men’s open championship. Teams will face each other in a round-robin format in their respective groups from Wednesday to Thursday, with the semi-finals and final set for Saturday. Barker noted that more teams were slated to participate, but the holidays caused some to pull out. “This is the holidays, so the teams could not get their players. St George’s wanted to have teams in both Under-16 and Under-19. St Catherine and Old Harbour were hoping to field their teams; Herbert Morrison couldn’t find transportation; and at Knox (boarding school), most boys have gone home for holidays. So we are wondering if we should have it in August and we will probably get more participation,” he said. The winning teams will receive trophies at the end of the competition.

first_img Mentally prepared To get the better of Portmore United, a team he described as tough, tactical opponents with a deep squad, Gayle will look to the likes of former national player Keammar “Dada” Daley who, on his day, is one of the better midfielders in the country, captain Rochane Smith, Girvon and Patrick Brown, as well as Davion Garrison. Portmore United, according to Coach Dixon, are difficult to pick. “Everyone is available. It is just to get the right team. It is difficult to get the right 11 when you have 25 to 30 players to choose from and everyone wants a chance” Dixon said. Whatever the 11, goalkeeper Shaven Sean Paul should feature as should Damono Solomon, Ricardo Morris, captain Ewan Grandison, in-form goalscorers Jovan East and Malique Foster. Today’s game: 3 p.m: Portmore United vs UWI FC – Wembley Centre of Excellence. The first semi-final of the 2017 Red Stripe Premier League is on today at the Wembley Centre of Excellence in Clarendon. Today’s opponents, Portmore United and UWI FC, each set themselves the goal of going one better than they did last year. That situation puts more pressure on Portmore United, who are home away from home, as, despite the fact that their name suggests that they are domiciled in St. Catherine, they are a Clarendon team. “The players are eager to go. They understand the importance of the first leg and are really focused on getting a positive result. “Our plan for the season is to go one better this year because we lost in the final last year,” Portmore United coach Linval Dixon told The Sunday Gleaner. While that means they have to get past today’s opponents, Dixon knows that the result is not automatic. “We are not looking past UWI because the game has to be played on the field. Nothing is owed to us. We have to play for the result we want,” Dixon added. Second-year team UWI FC have already done better than they did last season, but Coach Marcel Gayle and his players are not satisfied. “We missed the semi-finals last year by a point to Humble Lion and decided that this year, we have to take it a step further and this being our second year in the League, it is our first time in the semi-finals, so we are little bit new to it and have to be mentally prepared,” said Gayle, who was an assistant before leading the club to the promised land after being promoted to head coach. Things could have gone even better for Gayle and his players as they could have topped the league on points and collected the $1m bonus. They, however, lost some crucial points on the home stretch and were bettered by that team again – Humble Lion. “Yes, we lost some points at a crucial stage, yes, but we had two choices – going for the bonus or the big one. We would have wanted to get the million, but we don’t necessarily have the numbers like other people, and going after the million could have cost us as we had injuries. We decided to ensure that they heal and go for the big prize,” Gayle explained. Tactical opponentslast_img read more
