UWI eye top-four spot

first_imgRed Stripe Premier League new boys the University of the West Indies (UWI) FC are having a wonderful first season and have a top-four spot in sight. UWI won the Kingston and St Andrew Football Association (KSAFA) Super League last season before gaining a spot to the nation’s top league by advancing from the Jamaica Football Federation’s play-offs. After 25 games, UWI have surprised many by moving away from the relegation zone and are currently in fifth position in the 12-team league with 34 points, behind Montego Bay United (51), Arnett Gardens (49), Portmore United (46), and Humble Lion (36). At the completion of the preliminary stage, the top four will battle for the title. “We are still mathematically just a point from safety, we will take it from there and continue to accumulate points and see where it takes us,” Marcel Gayle, coach of UWI told The Gleaner. “We have conceded 34 goals, but the team has been scoring goals,” Gayle pointed out. “We are going to pursue a spot in the semi-final,” he said. Looking ahead to the next fixture against Boys’ Town at UWI Bowl next Sunday, Gayle said honours were even in the first two games. “Well, the teams have shared a win apiece, so it will be crucial to come away with maximum points against Boys’ Town,” he shared. “These guys are putting in the hard work and playing for each other, and that is key,” Gayle reasoned. “We are not totally satisfied but grateful for what has happened,” he said.last_img read more

first_imgA Group photo of Mental Health workers, Lawmakers and support partners during the release of the Mental health Research Report in Monrovia A local mental health advocacy group, Mental Health Leadership and Advocacy Program (MHLAP), on May 1, 2019 released its month-long research report for policy makers and health stakeholders to consider. The research was conducted on the JFK/ES Grant Mental Health Hospital, Liberia’s only mental health facility, located in Du Port Road, Paynesville. MHLAP Country Facilitator, Madam Sametta Thomas, informed the gathering that the medical research was funded by World Health Organization (WHO) QualityRights Research Dissemination Program in Liberia.The WHO QualityRights (QR) is a set standard for Mental Health Facilities and requires that the rights of people living with psychosocial disabilities be respected at all times. This document has five themes, comprising standards and criteria, upon which the JFK/ES Grant Mental Health Hospital in Du Port Road, Paynesville, was evaluated. According to the five themes, mental health patients are entitled to the following:The right to an adequate standard of living (Article 28 of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). This criteria, the Mental Health Hospital was graded as having “Achieved Partically”. The right to enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health (Article 25 of the CRPD). This criteria, the Mental Health Hospital “Achieved Partially”. The right to exercise legal capacity and the right to personal liberty and the security of person (Articles 12 and 14 of the CPD).

Kennedy Hospital, called on mental health institutions to discuss with the JFK leadership for emergency support for all categories of mental health personnel. She said that in the short term, in order to find solutions to the challenges of the mental health patients; all those connected to the mental health sector should work together and support drug assistance.“We are ready to help our mental health personnel in our country but, such team work must begin to identify the most critical areas that require our urgent attention,” Dr. Kamanor asserted.In separate remarks, stakeholders and participants called on the relevant ministries and agencies to intensify the advocacy for budgetary support to the mental health programs.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Mathare out to recapture lead from Bandari

first_img0Shares0000Mathare United players line up for a freekick before a previous Kenyan Premier League match. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 18 – Bandari temporarily took charge of the apex of the Kenyan Premier League log on Thursday evening with a 1-0 victory over Posta Rangers in Mombasa, but Mathare United will look to recapture that spot when they take on Kakamega Homeboyz at Kasarani on Saturday.The slum boys sit a point below the dockers at second and with an unblemished run to fight for, they will be out to give 100pc against the 11th placed Homeboyz. Mathare are already dreaming of their second league title and the thirst of quenching a trophy drought that dates back to their first league title in 2008 is clearly evident.Though he does not go straight into mentions, head coach Francis Kimanzi has urged his players to show what they have built as a single unit over the last three years is not in vain and build on their unbeaten start to the campaign.“It’s an evident document within a young team showing what they have been acquiring two three years together. It’s a year that they have to show they have to have the passion; passion to win matches and they are winning in style I think,” Kimanzi noted.The brewers have won five of their opening seven games of the campaign and picked up two draws, against champions Gor Mahia and Ulinzi Stars.Against Homeboyz, they will look to get their sixth win in eight games but they come up against a side that has blown hot and cold their way over their last eight meetings. Each of the two sides has won two and drawn four of the eight games.But, Homeboyz have not beaten Mathare since 2016. Mathare won 2-1 in the second leg last season having picked a 0-0 draw in the first leg in Kakamega.In terms of form, it is Mathare who definitely enjoy the bask of the sun. Homeboyz have not won in their last five games, losing thrice and drawing twice.At Kasarani where the expansive field and the regular pitch accord them a good surface to employ their possession based tact, Mathare have been unplayable and are stacked as favorites to win the mid-afternoon kick off.-Tusker face Ulinzi in NakuruTusker FC head coach Robert Matano shouts instructions to his players during their Kenyan Premier League match against Bandari FC at the Ruaraka Complex on August 12, 2018. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaMeanwhile, Tusker FC whose four-match winning streak was halted by the slum boys last weekend will be away to Ulinzi Stars in Nakuru on Sunday with Matano looking to get his side’s tempo back against his former employers.Tusker are sixth in the standings with 13 points and with an eye cast on ensuring the gap between them and the leading pack remains assailable, Matano is not just about to lower his guard against the men from the Kenyan Defense Forces.“The loss (against Mathare) is behind us and we focus on what lies ahead of us. We have been improving and I am happy with how the team is coming up. We only need to convert most of our chances and we will be okay,” the tactician stated.His pedigree is not in doubt. Last season, he picked up the brewers staggering into relegation mid-season but engineered a sobering up that saw them finish third.This season, his eyes are solely fixed on picking a third league title, and his second with the brewers.-Sofapaka look to rediscover formSofapaka interim coach John Baraza (left) with a member of his backroom staff during a training session at the Ruiru Complex on January 17, 2019. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluElsewhere at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos, Sofapaka will begin their life without Egyptian-American coach Melis Medo who resigned from the club at the beginning of the weak after a tough spell that saw them pick only one win in seven games.Batoto ba Mungu are 12th in the standings with a paltry seven points and John Baraza, the man who owner Elly Kalekwa turned to after the exit of Sam Ssimbwa last season will be trusted again to engineer a turnaround.“The first target is to get the team back to picking results because we are not in a good position on the table and time is moving. We need to get back to the top, get the players’ confidence back up because it has been sometime since we won,” Baraza said ahead of his side’s tie against Sony Sugar.Sofapaka have drawn four games and lost two, their only win coming on opening day against a struggling Mount Kenya United.Defensively they have had a nightmare conceding at least two goals every game with the exception of the Mount Kenya game and last weekend’s 1-1 draw against Vihiga United. Overall, they have soaked in 12 goals in seven games, the second highest in the league.Sony are eighth and come to the tie on the backdrop of back to back losses.-Bankers eye second winKCB FC head coach Frank Ouna passes instructions to his players during a training session at the Stima Club on November 20, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluIn the early kick off, KCB will hope to pick up a second consecutive league win when they take on Vihiga United.The bankers picked up their first top flight victory in four years last weekend when they shocked AFC Leopards 1-0 in Nakuru and coach Frank Ouna says it has built their confidence.“The motivation of the players is now increased and I think we approach this game with a clearer mind. The aim is to avoid defeat because we come up against a more experienced side and we need to be cautious. But I am optimistic that we can get something off it,” Ouna said.The tactician has also paid tribute to the arrival of Sammy Omollo in the club as his assistant saying the former Posta Rangers boss has increased the wealth of knowledge and tactical readiness for his charges.Kenyan Premier League weekend fixtures: Saturday: KCB v Vihiga United, Sofapaka v Sony Sugar (Kenyatta Stadium, Machakos), Mathare United v Kakamega Homeboyz (Kasarani Stadium)Sunday: Western Stima v Nzoia Sugar (Moi Stadium, Kisumu), Ulinzi Stars v Tusker FC (Afraha Stadium),0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgKevin McHugh’s U13 Donegal Schoolboys side have booked their All-Ireland semi-final spot following a comprehensive win over Inishowen yesterday afternoon.McHugh’s side were in rampant form and totally dominated the game from start to finish in a hugely impressive display.McHugh’s side are a top quality outfit and narrowly lost the All-Ireland title last season to Waterford. They put that disappointment behind them a few months later to win the Foyle Cup and seem intent on landing an All-Ireland title this year.Donegal took a 7th min lead when Finian O’Donnell latched unto a through ball and slipped it under the keeper.At half time it was 1-0 but Donegal made four changes at the start of the 2nd half and one of these, Calvin Murray scored from close range five minutes into the second half.Donegal squandered numerous chances after this until Murray got his second and Donegal’s third from close range again after 45mins. Dylan Dorrian scored the goal of the game on 50 mins after a brilliant individual solo goal.Murray got the ‘match ball’ on the last five minute with his third and Donegal’s fifth to round off a good team performance.Donegal top the group with three wins from three.They have now set up an All Ireland semi final clash with Mayo in early May.DONEGAL U13 SCHOOLBOYS IN SUPERB FORM AS THEY HIT INISHOWEN FOR FIVE was last modified: March 16th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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:donegalKevin McHughnewsSchoolboyssoccerSportlast_img read more

COLEMAN WEARS POPPY JERSEY, BUT McCLEAN REFUSAL CAUSES STORM

first_imgSinn Féin has condemned those involved in what they have called a witch-hunt on social media sites against footballer James McClean for his decision not to wear a poppy when playing for his club Sunderland today.The player – from Derry – made the decision for the game with Everton not to wear the jersey.Donegal man Seamus Coleman, who played for Everton and who plays alongside McClean for the national side, did wear a jersey with a poppy on it. Derry SF spokesman Raymond McCartney said: “No person, in any walk of life, should be forced to wear any symbol. That includes the red poppy, symbol of the Royal British Legion. Neither should any disrespect be read into a person’s decision to wear such a symbol.“It appears that James McClean is now the subject of a witch-hunt on social media for his choice not to wear a poppy on his shirt when playing for Sunderland today.“This ‘poppy bullying’ culture raises its head at this time every year. We have seen attempts to make workplaces compulsory poppy wearing zones.“The BBC has been guilty of corporate ‘poppy bullying’ by refusing to allow presenters who choose not to wear a poppy to at this time of year to appear on screen. This is shameful. “The right of people not to feel intimidated into wearing a poppy must be recognised. That includes professional footballers. James McClean’s personal choice in this regard should be respected.” COLEMAN WEARS POPPY JERSEY, BUT McCLEAN REFUSAL CAUSES STORM was last modified: November 11th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:DONEGAL SINN FEIN CONDEMN ‘POPPY BULLIES BEHIND WITCH-HUNT’ ON SOCCER STAR McCLEANlast_img read more
