Away day joy at last for Rangers

first_img The in-form Defoe might have collected his third goal for the club he joined last month seconds later, but guided his close-range shot from Jordi Gomez’s shot wide of the far post, while strike-partner Wickham was denied by a combination of keeper Green and the woodwork 10 minutes before the break. Wickham met Adam Johnson’s inswinging cross with a powerful header, which Green managed to turn on to the bar before beating away the rebound, with goal-line technology confirming his heroics. But the Black Cats’ hopes of dragging themselves back into the game suffered a further blow in stoppage time when Phillips picked out Zamora inside the area and he lashed an unstoppable right-foot shot past the helpless Pantilimon and into the top corner. Poyet replaced Gomez with Ricky Alvarez at the break and whatever message the Uruguayan had left ringing in the ears of his players appeared to have got through as they resumed in much more determined fashion. Rangers were dealt a blow just seven minutes into the half when Phillips departed to be replaced by Shaun Wright-Phillips, but they were not unduly affected by the change. However, as time ran down, Sunderland began to establish a momentum and Green had to make a second reaction save, this time to keep out Defoe’s 66th-minute flick from Johnson’s cross, and Alvarez forced him into a diving stop four minutes later with the pressure mounting. The home side battered away at the visitors right up to the final whistle, with the locals repeatedly imploring referee Martin Atkinson to award a penalty as Rangers put their bodies on the line, but ultimately to no avail. Press Association Caretaker boss Chris Ramsey presided over QPR’s first Barclays Premier League away win of the season as chairman Tony Fernandes closed in on his new manager. However, it took two fine saves by goalkeeper Rob Green to deny first Connor Wickham and then Jermain Defoe either side of half-time to preserve the clean sheet and deny Sunderland a way back into the game. Gus Poyet’s men, who were unbeaten in four matches in all competitions before kick-off, were dreadful for much of the game and even the in-form Defoe could not get them out of jail as they succumbed to the same opposition for the second time this season. Fernandes set tongues wagging among the visiting fraternity on Wearside when he suggested via his Twitter account that the search for Harry Redknapp’s replacement was close to an end. He tweeted: “Think I have got my dream manager. Not what anyone thinks. Take a while. Still a bit to go but I’m very happy. Press all wrong.” In the meantime, it was Ramsey’s task to end the club’s appalling away record and he made six changes to the side which succumbed 1-0 to Southampton at the weekend, several of them enforced by injury. The visitors could hardly have made a better fist of it before the break as they took advantage of a monumentally inept display by the Black Cats to give themselves every hope of addressing their chronic bout of travel sickness. Sunderland were spectacularly lethargic from the off and were punished in brutal fashion with 17 minutes gone when Matt Phillips, who terrorised full-back Patrick van Aanholt throughout, crossed for Fer to head firmly past Costel Pantilimon. The Dutchman was unfortunate not to double his tally on the half hour when, after Phillips had skipped past Van Aanholt and squared for him, his side-footed effort came back off a post and ran agonisingly along the goal line before an offside flag spared Sunderland’s blushes. Hours before kick-off Fernandes revealed his hope that he had got his man, sending Michael Laudrup’s odds tumbling, and spirits within the camp soared, with first-half goals from Leroy Fer and Bobby Zamora setting the club on their way to three points on the road after 11 successive defeats. The 2-0 success was QPR’s first win away from Loftus Road since their play-off final victory over Derby at Wembley on May 24 last year and was witnessed by only 395 travelling fans among a crowd of 39,077 at the Stadium of Light. last_img read more

Bolt rules out 2018 Commonwealth Games swansong

first_img(REUTERS) – Jamaican sprint great Usain Bolt has no plans to extend his career beyond this year’s world championships in London and has ruled out a return to Australia for the 2018 Commonwealth Games.Bolt, who completed a ‘treble treble’ of 100m, 200m and 4x100m Olympic titles at the 2016 Rio Games, had his 2008 relay gold stripped last month after teammate Nesta Carter’s re-tested sample showed traces of a banned substance.The 30-year-old Bolt also anchored the Jamaican relay team to his only Commonwealth Games gold in Glasgow in 2014 and organisers had hoped that he might extend his career to the next edition on the Gold Coast in April 2018.“To come out here next season, to really train as hard as I need to get to the level I need to win, it’s not going to happen,” Bolt told reporters in Melbourne yesterday.Bolt will lead an international team of ‘All Stars’ in the Nitro Athletics series in the Australian city against four other teams representing England, China, New Zealand and Japan.The first meeting is on tomorrow, with a further two on February 9 and 11.“It is going to be great, going to be something different. Like cricket and Twenty20, it’s going to be different,” Bolt added. “I feel it will catch on — it’s going to bring a lot of excitement to the sport.It is going to be something different, not going to be normal — a lot more exciting. I feel personally it is a great idea. This is why I am a part of it.”last_img read more

Demerara Mutual Fire & Life supports West Indies Over-50s World Cup quest

first_img…two trial matches are set for Florida on Novemer2 and 3`             THE second edition of The Over-50s Cricket World Cup is billed for March 2020 in Cape Town South Africa and at this stage national teams are at the peak of their preparation.The inaugural tournament was held in November 2018 in Sydney Australia among hosts Australia, England, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Pakistan, Wales and Canada. Australia defeated Pakistan by three runs to win the final and immediately the planning for Cape Town 2020 began.Already confirming their participation is West Indies as the total number of teams also increase from eight to 12.However, West Indies’ preparation will intensify on November 2 and 3 with the staging of two trial matches for the players that have shown early interest.The Over-50s CWC is not an International Cricket Council (ICC) event and as such teams are self-funded. The West Indies Over-50s CWC Local Organising Committee (LOC) is headed by Guyanese businessman Rajendra Singh of Raj Singh Insurance Brokers who has been busy searching for sponsors while putting all other logistics in place.Recently, Singh secured the blessings of insurance giants Demerara Mutual Fire and Life Group of Companies and a simple presentation ceremony was held in Georgetown. Addressing the gathering, the LOC Chairman said “the committee is in the process of organising two practice matches in Florida on November 2 and 3 and as you know everything costs money.We have interested players that are in need of sponsorship since it would cost approximately US$100,000 to facilitate the 20-man team, which is equivalent to US$5,000 per person. We are grateful to Dem Life foe their assistance as we hit the ground running knowing that we are in good hands.”The insurance executive further stated that after the practice matches in Florida, the wider LOC will sit and select the final 16 that will head to South Africa next March. In addition to their CWC matches in South Africa West Indies Over-50s will play two warm-up matches after arriving on March 6.Executive Marketing Manager of Dem Life, Clarence Perry upon handing over the much needed sponsorship gleefully said, “Demerara Fire and General would be the official sponsor for this tournament as a contributor.What we are basically doing is sponsoring one player. We have a history of being involved in cricket as far back as when the West Indies were in their glory days. As we have a history we felt that it’s something that we would want to be a part of as it would remind us of some of the great players West Indies had then that will now be in this world cup.That is why we are happy to contribute to be a part of this meaningful process and historical process.”Also present at the ceremony on behalf of West Indies Over-50s CWC LOC were Vice -Chairman Dave Narine and Media Officer John Ramsingh.last_img

Next man up: Jerami Grant’s role expands with Southerland ineligible

first_img Related Stories Coleman, Grant combine for 25 points in win over Eastern Michigan Freshman trio of Cooney, Coleman, Grant carries Orange to win against Villanova Published on January 17, 2013 at 12:56 am Contact Chris: cjiseman@syr.edu | @chris_iseman Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Jerami Grant’s transformation is ongoing, but at an accelerated pace.He’s stronger than he was in high school, and his aggressiveness shows he’s not afraid of the elite talent Syracuse faces on a game-by-game basis. Now he has a chance to perform more, to unveil his full range of talent in extended minutes.With James Southerland ineligible indefinitely, Grant is seeing more playing time off of the bench. Against Villanova Saturday, Grant showed he has the ability to contribute in Southerland’s absence, scoring 13 points and grabbing five rebounds in 29 minutes, the most he’s played all season. With No. 6 Syracuse (16-1, 4-0 Big East) playing No. 1 Louisville (16-1, 4-0) Saturday at the KFC Yum! Center, Grant’s role is even more critical against the Orange’s biggest test so far.Grant’s playing time has been sporadic all year. He’s played as little as one minute (Arkansas Nov. 30), and now as much as 29. Mike Jones coached Grant at DeMatha Catholic High School (Md.), and said regardless of how much Grant plays, he has to play hard for every minute.“If you know that you may only be out there for three or four minutes, you’re going to play as hard as you can for those three or four minutes,” Jones said. “And now that those minutes are going to increase, but if you’ve been playing hard every time you stepped on the floor, it becomes a natural thing that you can continue to do it.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textGrant’s always played against top-tier competition. He won two Washington Catholic Athletic Conference titles with DeMatha, and he was one of only 11 players to play in the 2012 Jordan Brand Classic. Grant also made the 24-man USA Basketball Under-18 team.Jones said when he watches Grant on television, he sees a stronger version of his former stud player. His lack of strength would’ve been the only thing to inhibit Grant’s ability to contribute immediately as a freshman, Jones said, but that’s been resolved.Grant has put in extra time in the gym to work on his shot, trying to get the ball higher while bringing the ball to his right a little more. It’s not only from the field, but also from the free-throw line, a part of the game where the Orange often struggles.“I used to shoot flat, so I’ve been working on it a lot every day after practice and before practice,” Grant said. “I felt like it’s helping me on my free throws.”Both Jones and Keith Stevens, Grant’s AAU coach for Team Takeover, said Grant is starting to understand how good he is. It’s showing in his aggressiveness on the floor, especially in the type of game he had against Villanova.Stevens said he’s always told Grant he had talent. It was a just a matter of Grant believing it, too.“But I think hearing from Coach Boeheim and the coaching staff the same things that I’ve spoken to him for so long,” Stevens said, “it’s starting to make him realize, like any other player, it’s making him realize he’s just as talented as anybody else.”Stevens said Grant should score 12 or 13 points and grab seven rebounds every time he plays because of his “athleticism” and “motor.”Grant said after Saturday’s game he wanted to raise his intensity and aggressiveness to be a factor at every possible opportunity.“I think it’s just hustle,” Grant said. “Just going after every loose ball, following the ball wherever it’s at.”With Southerland on the bench, Grant has a big role in head coach Jim Boeheim’s rotation in the foreseeable future. Boeheim said his preference is to have his more-experienced players on the court more often. With one of them out, Grant’s stepping up.Jones said Grant’s potential is limitless. He can play multiple positions and give opponents fits at both ends of the floor. Now Grant has the chance to prove it even more.He took advantage of nearly all of his 29 minutes last weekend. He proved he could hold his own on the court against Big East competition. Syracuse needs him to keep producing at that level.“I think it’s a great opportunity,” Stevens said. “He’s in a situation where he’s going to be counted on to help pick up the slack.” Commentslast_img read more
