Taylor banking on support from teammates

first_imgFirst-time West Indies Women’s captain, Stafanie Taylor, is banking on her popularity among teammates to guide her through her first stint as leader of the regional aggregation.The most decorated regional female cricketer of all time is set to assume the post next month when she leads the regional side against Pakistan in a one-day and Twenty20 International home series.The day and night series will be played in St Lucia and Grenada, respectively, between October 13 and 31.”Most of the players do have respect for me, and I definitely have a lot of respect for them,” said the 24-year-old Taylor, who has been a member of regional side since 1998.”I, therefore, definitely think that I will get the support of, if not most, maybe all.”The outstanding batting all-rounder, who in 2013 was voted ICC Women Cricketer of The Year, replaces long-standing captain, wicketkeeper Merissa Aguilleira, who guided West Indies to the final of the 2013 Women’s World Cup, and two Women’s World Twenty20 semi-finals.The one-day leg of the Pakistan tour will form part of both teams’ bid to finish in the top four of the round-robin ICC Women’s Championship.The quartet will automatically qualify for the 2017 Women World Cup to be staged in England.The bottom four, meanwhile, will have another chance of qualification through an ICC Women’s World Cup Qualifier series in 2017.The regional women will shortly assemble for a training camp in St Lucia.last_img read more

MBU test for high-flying Tivoli

first_img “The interchange between Johnson and Flemmings is great for them, in terms of sharing experiences. They are going in different directions, in terms of their careers, but they are good for each other. They get on even better off the field, and this is a big plus for the team,” shared the former Camperdown player and current coach. Flemmings’ value to the Tivoli team has also been noted by Montego Bay United coach Tim Hankinson, who singled him out for mention. “Tivoli are showing good qualities now. Flemmings is in good form. I saw his run against Arnett Gardens, which gave them the victory,” pointed out Hankinson, whose team lost 1-2 to CD Arbe Unido in the CONCACAF Champions League on Thursday. Hankinson, who appears to be a stickler for detail, said he knows what to expect from the opponents. “They are very determined and aggressive. They are there to take the match, but we have to be equal to engage that intensity and determination,” he said, adding, “it is all about finishing your opportunities to get the desired result.” To get that desired result, Montego Bay United will have to be at their best and better than they were against Harbour View and their Panamanian opposition. Their top two producers on offence, Dino Williams, the league’s leading scorer, and Owayne Gordon, who both missed Thursday’s match, will be back in action, according to Hankinson. “They are ready. We did not play them in the CONCACAF game because they had small injuries and needed more rest, but they trained well this morning,” Hankinson told The Sunday Gleaner yesterday. But while the news of Williams and Gordon is good, it is not the same for the defensive pair of Orlando McBayne and Ladale Ritchie. “McBayne still needs more time and Ritchie is still not ready. We have adequate cover. We played without these players on Thursday, and even though we did not not win, we played well. “We are a good team, a strong team, not about one or two players. We have depth,” Hankinson asserted. Today’s Games 6 p.m.: Arnett Gardens FC vs Waterhouse – Anthony Spaulding Complex 3 p.m.: Boys’ Town FC vs Cavalier – Barbican Stadium 3 p.m.: Humble Lion FC vs UWI – Effortville Community Centre 3 p.m.: Reno vs Portmore United – Frome Complex 3 p.m: Tivoli Gardens vs Montego Bay United FC – Edward Seaga Complex Tomorrow’s game 8:40 p.m.: Harbour View vs Rivoli United – Harbour View Stadium Points standing P W D L GF GA GD Pts MoBay United 7 4 2 1 15 6 9 14 Portmore 7 4 2 1 6 2 4 14 Tivoli 7 3 2 2 12 7 5 11 Reno 7 3 2 2 9 8 1 11 Arnett 7 3 1 3 11 5 6 10 Rivoli 7 3 1 3 7 8 -1 10 Humble Lion 7 2 3 2 4 5 -1 9 Cavalier 7 2 2 3 3 6 -3 8 H.View 7 1 4 2 6 9 -3 7 Waterhouse 7 2 1 4 5 9 -4 7 UWI FC 7 2 1 4 3 11 -8 7 Boys’ Town 7 1 3 3 7 13 -6 6 Great partnership Coach Christopher Bender could lead his charges closer to the top of the Red Stripe Premier League today if they get the better of leaders Montego Bay United, who they will go up against at the Edward Seaga Stadium at 3 p.m. Former champions Tivoli Gardens are currently sitting in third position on 11 points, three behind Montego United on 14 and Portmore United, also on 14, but with an inferior goal difference. In some circles, Tivoli’s march – three games successive wins, over Harbour View, Waterhouse and Arnett Gardens – is a surprise as some even whispered that Bender and his quiet easy-going manner would not survive in that tough environment. While it is still early in the season, Bender has managed to re-energise a group of players who have struggled over the last couple of seasons and have had more than their fair share of tragedy. “It is not magic. I would put it down to the work ethic and a change in the culture. These are difficult to achieve, but we are making progress,” Bender said of the turnaround he is witnessing with his players. He added: “We started off a bit shaky, but we are getting there and, hopefully, we can continue on that journey.” Today’s game against the leaders and a team that has been in the league final for the past two seasons, winning one and losing the other, Bender acknowledged, will be a tough one. “This will be a difficult one. We expect a stern test from MoBay United, but our hope is to continue improving and getting the job done at home. “We know they have some quality and are doing well in the league, and we have been doing well over the past three games, so fans should expect a keen test,” Bender said. One of the obvious bright sparks in the Tivoli Gardens set-up is 19-year-old attacker Junior Flemmings, who, along with the not fully fit Jermaine Johnson, terrorised Arnett Gardens with their pace and trickery on Monday last. Bender is bent on getting the best out of him “Everyone knows, including Flemmings himself, that he has talent, but talent without work, without the proper work ethic, discipline and application, nothing will come of it. One of my main objectives is to keep him focused. I try to keep him grounded, and that is the biggest challenge. He has to buy into a certain way of operating if he is to play at the higher level, which he is capable of doing, and he is buying into it.last_img read more

Mavis Bank seek distance dominance

first_imgMinnows Mavis Bank High School have their sights set on dominating the distance races at this year’s Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA)/Boys and Girls’ Athletic Championships at the National Stadium.Located in the hills of rural St Andrew, Mavis Bank have dominated the road races this season. In fact, their athletes Garfield Gordon and Crystal Brown are among the leading road racers this season.Gordon is down to compete in the Class One 5000m and 2000m steeplechase at the championships. He finished a close-up fourth in the steeplechase in 2015 and is considered one of the favourites for this year’s event.Meanwhile, Brown, who will contest the Class Two 1500m and 2000m steeplechase events, is one of the hot favourites to win both at the championships.Head coach Devon Grant is confident that his athletes will do well.SURPRISES”We are going to make a name for ourselves at Champs this year and we are going to create some surprises,” said Grant. “We have dominated road races in Jamaica, the 5Ks and the 10Ks and so what we are trying to do now is to carry that over into Champs.”We can win the Class One 5,000m with Garfield because I believe that once he applies himself then he will come away with a medal for us,” Grant predicted. “I think he can also win the steeplechase open but he must apply, stay focused and execute his race properly.”Grant pointed out that his school also has a “great chance” of winning medals in the girls 1,500m Class Two and the girls Class Three 800m.”My athletes have no doubt about themselves and they feel good. I have used my experience and try and motivate them and they have been coming along and so I know that they will do well, extremely well at Champs,” he said.However, Grant added that their preparation heading into the championships hasn’t been a smooth one. He explained that the lack of proper training facility hampered their training progress this season.”We have had some hitches in our preparations because we don’t have a field to train on (and) we have to travel to Hope Gardens or the University of the West Indies to train and this costs a lot to transport the kids there and the school cannot afford it.”last_img read more

Campesino to notch overdue win

first_imgThe consistent CAM-PESINO seems on course for an overdue win at Caymanas Park today when he faces six opponents in the 3-y-o and up open allowance race over 1200 metres, the third on the nine-race programme.Trained by 14-time champion Philip Feanny, CAMPESINO, to be ridden by leading all-time jockey Winston ‘Fanna’ Griffiths, notched his last win over this trip in October at the expense of subsequent Superstakes winner FRANFIELD, covering the distance in the good time of 1:11.3 in open allowance company.Significantly, CAMPESINO has finished second in five of his seven subsequent races against the very best horses in the country. They include Horse of the Year SEEKING MY DREAM, champion sprinter POKER STAR, as well as LONG RUNNING TRAIN, and PHINEAS, when caught on the line by him in the Gladiator Trophy over 1400 metres on December 19.CAMPESINO had another near-miss against POKER STAR in the St Catherine Cup over 1100 metres on January 2 and all in all, his performances speak for themselves.The six-year-old bay gelding by Compadre out of Yaella reports well prepared to meet this engagement and with less to do in this small field, should make no mistake.WILLINGNESS TO FIGHTHaving shown good pace and a willingness to fight in his races, CAMPESINO, who runs from the convenient mark of 55.0kg, should win from the speedy 4-y-o colt, ROYAL ASSAULT, who, though failing in his bid for the hat-trick behind POTCHEEN over the straight on March 9, should ensure a good race with only 50.0kg and former champion Wesley Henry aboard.Other firm fancies on the card are down-in-class EL NUMERO UNO over UNCLE G and DI COBRE in the $250,000-$210,000 claiming race over 1200 metres for the Clifford Stewart Memorial Cup; MY WAY in the fourth for maiden three-year-olds; fleet-footed CLASSICAL TRAIN in the fifth; and down-in-class EXPRESS RUCK ahead of CAUSE FOR CONCERN in the closing $180,000 claiming race over 1400 metres.last_img read more

Haile Selassie, Donald Quarrie win Multi-Care senior titles

first_imgHaile Selassie High and Donald Quarrie High emerged champions of the Multi-Care Foundation’s annual mixed-team basketball and girls’ football competitions, respectively, at Breezy Castle Complex in Kingston, yesterday. On the final day of the two-day event, Donald Quarrie edged Kingston Technical High 1-0 to win the football title in the senior section, and Haile Selassie defeated Kingston Technical High 14-2 in the mixed (girls and boys) basketball final in the senior section. Both champions walked off with medals presented by Alicia Glasgow-Gentles, executive director of the Multi-Care Foundations and Ann Astwood, Multi-Care Foundation’s programme manager. Coach of Haile Selassie’s basketball team Stelvin Thomas was elated that his team came out winners. “Well, our best team was not here, but the replacements pulled through. Most of the better schools were not present, so it was a bit easier for us,” Thomas told The Gleaner, yesterday. “The players enjoyed the competition, and now they are going back to school with gold medals, so that is rewarding,” he added. Coach of Donald Quarrie’s girls’ football team Garfield Clarke said it was good for his girls as part of their development in the sport. “We feel elated about winning. We came with a developmental team and we were able to come out on top, so that augurs well for our programme,” Clarke said. On Wednesday in the junior section, Duhaney Park Primary won the football competition ahead of DuPont Primary and Holy Family Primary. In the basketball competition, Holy Family captured the title over Harbour View Primary and DuPont Primary.last_img read more

The Wright View | Don’t abuse Rodgers

first_img ‘BIG MONEY’ TRANSFER APPROVAL So, another chapter in the sordid affairs governing children at play, when “big money” is involved. The letter of the day from a member of the Jamaican Bar Association that appeared in this newspaper on Friday, March 17, reminds me of the present state of affairs in the English Premier League. Arsene Wenger, the man in charge of Arsenal Football Club has been reappointed year after year to lead the team to success, anywhere – the EPL, the Champions League … anywhere. He has failed year after year, yet year after year, he promises “soon”. The author of the letter in question has been leading the charge of athletes who run afoul of the regulations of the Jamaican Anti-Doping Commission, year after year, and has failed year after year to find success. Therefore, who is to blame? The referee, the pitch, the schedule, the tribunal, the procedure, the opinion writers? The list seems endless because under no circumstance must the finger be pointed where the blame really lies. Fans of Arsenal are asking “when will we win one?” Could there be a similar call here in Jamaica? Young Rodgers had his application to transfer to Kingston College (KC) approved and left his native land Uganda in time to fulfil the requirements of a successful transfer. However, a series of blunders, between airline staffers and German Embassy officials, resulted in a planned arrival in Jamaica on or around August 24, being transformed to his physical arrival here on October 16 and arriving on the doorsteps of KC on October 18 last year. Since his arrival, young Rodgers has excelled academically, and more important, it seems, has proven to be an exceptionally gifted middle- to long-distance runner. This has resulted in the young man becoming a firm candidate to earn 18 points for his school in the upcoming ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Athletics Championships (Champs) according to those who have become, by virtue of historical success, experts in making such predictions. His academic success in class (98% in a recent mathematics exam, according to his headmaster) seems to be of little interest to educators of rival schools. What has irked some of these leaders is the fact that he now has the potential to be a major factor in the ‘fight’ between the top schools to win at Champs, thus qualifying for mind-boggling monetary rewards, previously unheard of in this annual athletics competition. Thus the win-at-all-cost mantra of once-upon-a-time friendly rivalry among schools has resulted in a bizarre breach of accepted protocol regarding decisions made by the executive of Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA), the body of principals who control Champs, and the threatened withdrawal of one of the major players in Champs from participating in some of the pre-Champs ceremonies. This has resulted in a flurry of unsupportive comments on social media, and a call from a sports journalist for KC to ban this child from representing his school at Champs. The effect of all of this … “He is unhappy. He feels down, especially when he goes on Facebook and sees everything that is being said about him”, to quote his headmaster at KC, Dave Myrie, “The result of the objection of a rival school which, as revealed by the head of ISSA, has benefited from a similar ruling of ISSA in the past, is the mental and psychological abuse of a child!” An objection that has absolutely no chance of success if we are to believe the facts behind the decision of the executive of ISSA as outlined by the president. The response in Jamaica to the consistent and persistent abuse of its children has resulted in the formation of different organisations whose main aim is to sensitise us, the citizens, of the scope of the problem; and to identify ways to combat this blot on our yearning to be civilised. Betty Ann Blaine’s group, Hear the Children’s Cry, has made impressive headway in fulfilling this mandate. However, abuse continues apace, and the now increasing aggressive posture of new groups is causing mainstream Jamaica to respond in ways that appear to view protest as worthy of ‘lock down’. The continued abuse of our children is not limited, however, to physical and sexual abuse. The consistent and persistent psychological abuse of our young population is nurtured and perpetrated by some of the very organisations tasked with protecting our children from mental and psychological abuse. The brouhaha surrounding the (successful) attempt of those tasked with the upbringing of Ugandan teenager Arymanya Rodgers to come to Jamaica to live and continue his education brings into sharp focus the ‘abuse’ of a child.last_img read more
