first_img0Shares0000NAIROBI, Kenya, October 5-Andrew Amonde is the new national sevens team captain as head coach, Mike Friday, named his first HSBC World Series squad for the circuit opener in Gold Coast, Australia.Amonde, the KCB RFC forward, takes over from Sidney Ashioya who will not feature in the largely youthful outfit unveiled on Friday in Nairobi with Collins Injera, Biko Adema, Horace Otieno, Oscar Ouma and William Ambaka the regulars from last season who made the cut. Safaricom Safari 7s sensation, Dennis Ombachi, Cyprian Kuto, Michael Wanjala,Eden Agero, Dennis Ambuya and Davis Chenge complete the travelling squad with Patrice Agunda, Philip Wamae, Dennis Muhanji and Fabian Olando placed as reserves.“There are three or four players we have left behind that could have made this team especially in the forward role where we have stiff competition. This is the kind of headache I need where there is intense difficulty to come up with the final 12,” the former England coach Friday expressed.Incidentally, he will come up against the side he coached until 2006 in the October 13 Pool C opener in Australia after ending his career as a long-time captain having been drawn to Kenya from the television pundit box by the excitement of coaching a side he admired.“My aim will be to do everything to win a game of rugby against England who have far more superior structures, the tradition and budget. My record there speaks for itself and who came after has his own,” Friday told of his clash against his former employers.“We have made changes in this team and many do not know what to expect from Kenya and that is the exciting thing against this team. My aim is to qualify for the Main Cup quarters in our first outing then build on from there.“Ultimately, retaining our core status by finishing way above 12th in the series and playing for silverware is the goal for this side but we should not expect much since we are only ten weeks into the new project,” he explained.Friday also announced former skipper and leading try scorer, Humphrey Kayange would be available for the second and third legs of the series in Dubai and George, South Africa but he would not walk in straight into the side.“He needs to work on his conditioning and fitness at Bristol University to get at the same level with the rest of the squad. We tested him at Safari 7s and he realises he has work to do and he is willing to do it,” the head coach underpinned.He has a benchmark on building on from the 40 points Kenya tallied at the 2011/2012 World Series that was the lowest tally in six seasons as the country flirted to lose her status as a core side.“Every year from now will see teams relegated and we must work to ensure that we cement our status as an elite side through development structures we have put in place. For now, we cannot say we have moved far since we must start with the coaching before ensuring a consistent stream of quality players.”The team is expected back from Australia on October 17 before preparing for the back-to-back legs in Dubai (November 30 and December 1) and George (December 8 and 9).

first_img 5 5 Carlo Ancelotti set tongues wagging after revealing his desire to return to the Premier League.Harry Redknapp told talkSPORT that Ancelotti turned down an approach from Liverpool and that the Italian wouldn’t just sign up for any old club.“It’s got to be a big club for him,” said Redknapp. “He’s a manager of Champions League clubs so he’s not going to take any job.”That probably means one of four clubs: Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea.The Italian coach was at the Stamford Bridge for just two seasons, despite winning the Premier League and the FA Cup in his first campaign, and left under a dark cloud.But with Jose Mourinho under pressure at Chelsea, no one should rule out the possibility that Ancelotti could make a sensational return to the Bridge. Check out five reasons why the Italian could one day manage Chelsea once more, in the slideshow above.Do you think Ancelotti could make a Chelsea return? Share your thoughts by leaving a comment below. 5 3. He’ll have a point to prove – It would take a brave man to return to Cobham having been sacked so unceremoniously first time around, and both Ancelotti and Abramovich will have one heck of a point to prove if he is given the key back in to the club. 1. Players love Carlo – check out four more reasons Ancelotti could return to Chelsea by clicking the arrow above – In an interview with talkSPORT at the end of last season, John Terry revealed that he was ‘very close with Carlo both on and off the pitch’. What’s more, soon after Real Madrid’s final game of the previous campaign, such Los Blancos players as Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos were quick to voice their support for Ancelotti on social media. Not many managers command that level of respect, so you can see the current crop of unhappy Blues players welcoming him with open arms. 5 2. He’ll deliver trophies quick – In his first season with Chelsea, Ancelotti won the Premier League and the FA Cup, while he was also responsible for delivering La Decima to Real Madrid in his first season at the Bernabeu. Ancelotti’s first full season at Paris Saint-Germain delivered the Ligue 1 title, and going back to his first full season with AC Milan, he won both the Champions League and Italian Cup. When it comes to winning trophies, Ancelotti doesn’t hang about; even if it means spending a significant amount of money quickly, speedy success is almost guaranteed. 5. Those eyebrows – There is no manager in world football with a better set of eyebrows than Ancelotti and their absence from Premier League press conferences has been sorely missed. 5 4. Ancelotti would offer a steady hand if Mourinho leaves – While Ancelotti was sacked at the end of just his second season with Chelsea, his time in west London did suggest that he could offer the stability that the club now desired. Back in 2011, it was all about winning the biggest trophies, but while the desire to be number one remains undiminished, Chelsea are not keen on returning to the managerial turbulence that has blighted the club too often. For now, that means backing Jose Mourinho, but it remains to be seen if the explosive Portuguese will be in it for the long haul, having never lasted longer than three years at any club. If Mourinho goes, Ancelotti could be relied upon to restore a sense of calm. last_img read more

first_imgSOCCER: Hartman shines and Kansas City leads its total-goals playoff series with Chivas USA. By Matt Zimmerman CORRESPONDENT KANSAS CITY – In a playoff trip to Preki’s old stomping grounds, Chivas USA couldn’t come close to replicating its first-year coach’s heroics. Davy Arnaud’s shot bounced right in front of and over diving Chivas goalie Brad Guzan. “In most cases, I would expect Guzan to make that save, because that was 20-plus yards out,” said Preki, who scored 79 goals and had 112 assists while spending nine of his 10 years as a player in Kansas City. “But those things happen. We’ve got to just regroup and we’re going to be focused next Saturday.” Just five minutes after the Wizards’ score, Chivas nearly tied it up. Alex Zotinca’s shot from outside the box knuckled away from Hartman, who nonetheless parried the chance and then smothered Laurent Merlin’s rebound attempt to preserve the shutout. “In terms of playing at Home Depot Center, I’m ready for that,” said Hartman, who played nine years for the Galaxy before being traded to the Wizards this season. “Obviously, we’ll know what their strengths are, what their weaknesses are, and hopefully we’ll be well-prepared and we can go and try to find success on a field where not very many people have had success this year.” Merlin started the game as Chivas’ only forward in a 4-5-1 formation, necessitated by injuries to usual starting forwards Ante Razov (knee) and Maykel Galindo (abdominal strain), who between them had 23 of the team’s 46 goals this year. Chivas USA finished 10-1-4 at home this season, including a 2-1 win against Kansas City on Sept. 22. Such a score six days from now will mean a mini-game and a chance for Chivas to take advantage of having the best regular-season record in the West. “We knew that it was going to be a little bit of an issue for our team to adjust without those two guys up top, but we did the things we wanted to do tonight, we just didn’t quite get the result,” Chivas USA midfielder Jesse Marsch said. “From now on in, it’s got to come through Home Depot. So even though we’re down a goal in this series, we’ve got a real good chance here to take care of next weekend and then look forward to the weekend after that.” In other MLS playoff openers … FC Dallas 1, Houston 0: Clarence Goodson scored an unassisted goal in the 23rd minute as Dallas won at home. Game 2 is Friday in Houston, where the Dynamo went 3-0-1 against Dallas this season. Goodson sent a shot into the left corner of the net from inside the goalie’s box. Dallas goalie Dario Sala made a two-handed save to stop a direct shot by Houston’s Brian Ching in the 87th minute. Red Bulls 0, Revolution 0: Jon Conway made three saves for host New York, while Matt Reis stopped five shots for New England. There was some controversy in the closing minutes, when Red Bulls midfielder Dane Richards got tangled with Revolution defender Avery John and John appeared to have touched the ball with his hand in the penalty area. However, referee Jair Marrufo called Richards for a foul that angered Red Bulls coach Bruce Arena, and neither team had a chance to score for the rest of the match.

Chivas USA now will put MLS’ best home record to the test next Saturday at Home Depot Center. In the two-game, total-goals series, the top-seeded Goats need to win by two goals in regulation to automatically advance to the Western Conference final. Should the series be tied (e.g. 1-1 or 2-2) after 180 minutes, 30 minutes of extra time will be played, followed by penalty kicks as necessary. Kansas City needs only a tie to advance. “The pressure’s on them; they’re the team that needs to score two goals,” Wizards coach Curt Onalfo said. “Of course, you want to try to score more goals, but this is playoff soccer. If you look at the other results around the league, there’s not a lot of high-scoring games.” In a game played before 12,442 – a Wizards record for a home playoff game – Kansas City scored the game’s only goal in the 35th minute. A Paolo Nagamura foul on forward Eddie Johnson gave the Wizards a free kick 32 yards away from the goal. last_img read more

An hour earlier, The National Association of Realtors reported that the median price of a home fell 3.5 percent from a year earlier to $221,000 in October. It was the biggest year-over-year price decline on record for an asset that many Americans use as a gauge of their financial well-being. On the positive side, the group also reported that home sales rose, albeit slightly, for the first time in eight months. Meanwhile, the New York-based Conference Board said its widely watched consumer confidence index fell to 102.9 in November from a revised reading of 105.1 in October. November’s figure was the lowest since August’s 100.2 and well below economists’ expectations of a 106 reading. That news arrived on the heels of a government report on durable goods that showed orders for big-ticket manufactured goods plunged 8.3 percent in October – the largest drop in more than six years. NEW YORK – The U.S. economy has often been compared to a locomotive. If that’s the case, its engine may need an overhaul. Three of its pistons – consumer confidence, orders for manufactured goods and home prices – showed surprising wear and tear on Tuesday. To economists, this points to slower growth ahead – just as we head into the important holiday shopping season. The housing market, especially, has economy-watchers worried. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said central bankers are caught between fears about the growth-sapping real estate slump and concerns that inflation is rising. The reports deflated some hopes for a robust holiday shopping season. Consumers “are not feeling really good now,” said Gary Thayer, chief economist at A.G. Edwards & Sons Inc., though he added they’re feeling better compared to this past summer when gasoline prices surged. Prices at the pump have dropped 80 cents a gallon, on average, since the start of August. “We are still positive on the consumer sector. I think it will be a good holiday season,” Thayer said. Some of the weaker-than-expected economic news, namely the durable goods and consumer confidence reports, boosted Treasury prices and knocked down yields. The 10-year Treasury yield fell at one point during the session to below 4.50 percent for the first time since late January on expectations that a slowing economy may force the Federal Reserve, which has left interest rates intact since August, to begin lowering interest rates next year. Bernanke made it clear that policymakers want to see inflation continue to recede, however, which suggests the Fed probably won’t be cutting interest rates any time soon. Nevertheless, Bernanke said “substantial uncertainties” surround the Fed’s outlook. The stock market, rebounding from its worst session in four months, took its cue from the slight rise in home sales, rather than the declines in homes prices, consumer confidence or durable goods orders. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 14.74, or 0.12 percent, at 12,136.45, after falling 158 Monday. Merchants are counting on confident shoppers to keep spending through the holiday season, but worries about job security could make them scour for bargains at the malls and department stores. High-profile layoffs in the auto industry and steep cutbacks in home building have made consumers uneasy about the labor market, even though government reports have painted a healthy picture for jobs. The drop in durable orders also provided more evidence that the nation’s factories are beginning to feel the impact of the slowdown in the overall economy and could derail any gains made in the employment market. “A tighter labor market and a more guarded short-term outlook have combined to curb consumers’ confidence in November,” said Lynn Franco, director of The Conference Board Consumer Research Center, in a statement. But she added that despite the retreat, “the overall level of confidence remains favorable and continues to suggest that the economy will expand throughout the first half of next year.” The group’s Present Situation Index, which measures how shoppers feel now about economic conditions, declined to 123.6 from 125.1. Its Expectations Index, which measures consumers’ outlook over the next six months, declined to 89.2 from 91.9 in November. The consumer confidence report – derived from responses through Nov. 14 to a survey mailed to 5,000 households in a consumer research panel – showed that labor market conditions were less favorable than in October. Those saying jobs are “hard to get” rose to 22.4 percent from 21.8 percent. Those claiming jobs are “plentiful” increased slightly to 25.8 percent from 25.6 percent in October. Consumers’ short-term outlook was less optimistic in November than in October. Those expecting business conditions to improve in the next six months decreased to 15.1 percent from 18.5. Those anticipating business conditions to worsen, however, decreased to 8.5 percent from 10.0 percent. The outlook for the labor market remained mixed. Consumers expecting more jobs to become available in the coming months decreased to 13.1 percent from 15.1 percent, while those anticipating fewer jobs also decreased to 16.7 percent from 18.0 percent. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgA judge has told a Buncrana man he was ‘extremely fortunate’ not to be going to jail.Ricky Fagan (25) was before Buncrana District Court where he was convicted on a series of road traffic and public order offences, all relating to separate incidents in 2016 and 2017. Solicitor, Mr Rory O’Brien said his client was pleading to all charges before the court, other than a number of matters that he had discussed with Superintendent Eugene McGovern.Amongst the charges before the court were six for driving without insurance, but Fagan argued that he was insured on the days of these incidents.Mr O’Brien told the court that the insurance had been cancelled retrospectively by the insurance company, but argued that this did not invalidate it.Judge Paul Kelly noted that he had heard details in the majority of the eleven dates in total before the court at previous sittings.The judge heard new details of an incident involving three counts of alleged dangerous driving in Carndonagh on October 16, 2016.Garda Conor Mulkerrins told the court that on the morning in question he was on patrol as an observer in a marked patrol vehicle outside the Tul na Rí Nightclub.Judge Kelly heard the garda’s attention was drawn to a black Audi A4 ‘shadowing’ a minibus, causing annoyance and preventing it from leaving the club’s car park.Garda Mulkerrings told the judge that his colleague Garda James Lyons pulled the patrol car behind the Audi and flashed the lights.“The driver side window was open and the driver looked back and I recognised him as Ricky Fagan. I also recognised the vehicle as belonging to the defendant.”When the Audi exited the club’s car park the driver spun the wheels as it drove onto the main road and pulled up at a nearby junction. Garda Mulkerrins said until this manoeuvre he had no reason to speak to the driver.The patrol car followed the Audi to the next junction where it was parked. When Garda Mulkerrins got out and approached the vehicle, the driver ‘put the foot down’ accelerated and sped away from the garda.Judge Kelly heard that the gardaí followed the Audi over a 3km distance, observing the vehicle driving at a speed of up to 150kmh in an 80kmh zone.The garda said due to the speed and manner of driving involved in the pursuit, they made the decision to disengage with the vehicle. “At that stage I was happy that I had recognised the driver and the vehicle.”Garda Mulkerrins said he made two attempts to speak to the defendant, but to no avail and summonses were subsequently issued.Taking to the witness stand, Fagan told the court that it was not him driving and that he was, in fact, sitting in the back seat, on the driver’s side of the Audi.Fagan told the judge that as he was drinking a friend of his girlfriend’s, Shannon Doherty, drove his Audi on the night in question. He said, when the gardaí approached the vehicle Ms Doherty ‘panicked and took off’.Supt McGovern that this was the first time that the defendant had brought it to their attention that he was not driving on the night.Sergeant Maurice Doyle also gave evidence in court relating to another incident. He told the court that on November 27, 2016 he was called to the scene of a road traffic collision at 11.49pm involving a garda car and another vehicle.The court heard that while operating a speed check at Carnamaddy, Burt a vehicle was detected driving at a speed of 175kmh in a 100 zone.The vehicle overtook a number of vehicles on a continuous white line on a bend, forcing a VW Jetta to take evasive action into the hard shoulder.Judge Kelly heard the Jetta hit something that forced it go onto the other side, subsequently hitting the garda vehicle.The vehicle registration led Sgt Doyle to Fagan who met the garda by appointment at Buncrana Garda Station on March 5, 2017 and said on his advice of his solicitor he was not going to answer questions in relation to the vehicle.Judge Kelly noted that Fagan had kept the Probation Service busy for the last couple of years and acknowledged that the defendant’s engagement with the service had been ‘reasonably good’ in recent times.“Mr Fagan, you’re extremely fortunate not to be leaving in custody. Taking into consideration what the Probation Service and your solicitor have said on your behalf, and your involvement in a fatality, I hope it shows you the danger to yourself and others driving in this manner can be.“If you’re before me again, there will be a lengthy custodial sentence involved.This is the one chance you’ll get from me,” Judge Kelly said.Supt McGovern said Fagan had previous convictions, the most recent being a conviction for obstruction for which he spent three months in prison.Mr O’Brien told Judge Kelly that his client was familiar to the court and had gone through a ‘difficult upbringing’.The solicitor said Fagan was left to fend for himself for a long time and ‘his lifestyle choices got in the way’.Judge Kelly heard the defendant was now working full-time as a ‘chippie’ in Dublin and recently also taken over a convenience shop in Letterkenny, now known as Fagan’s, employing three people and was very hopeful to ‘make it work’.The defendant was fined €500 and disqualified from driving for two years for having no insurance and his false declaration to obtain insurance on August 19, 2016.For driving without insurance at An Pairc Mór, Buncrana on August 21, 2016 Judge Kelly sentenced Fagan to 60 hours community service in lieu of two months imprisonment and a mandatory four-year driving disqualification.Fagan received a four-month sentence, suspended for two years, and a four-year driving disqualification, to run concurrently, for driving without insurance at Cockhill Road, Buncrana on September 11, 2016.For Fagan’s dangerous driving at Magherad, Churchlandquarters, Carndonagh on October 16, 2016 Judge Kelly made a separate order of 60 hours community service in lieu of a two-month prison sentence.He also imposed another four-year driving disqualification to run concurrently. The other two dangerous driving charges were taken into consideration.He also received a separate order of 40 hours community service in lieu of a one-month sentence, to run concurrently, for his threatening, abusive or insulting behaviour on a date in December, 2016.For failing to give information to a Sergeant Doyle on March 5, 2017 in relation to the incident at Burt in November, 2016, Fagan received a €250 fine.Other charges of failing to produce an NCT certificate and insurance, disorderly conduct, intoxication in a public place, threatening, abusive or insulting behaviour and criminal damage were either struck out or taken into consideration.Man with litany of traffic charges is lucky to escape jail was last modified: October 5th, 2018 by StephenShare 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:courtGardaiJUDGERicky Fagantrafficlast_img read more
