Deonarine signs with Red Force

first_imgPORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC):Out-of-favour Test batsman Narsingh Deonarine has signed on to play for Trinidad and Tobago Red Force in this year’s Professional Cricket League, in a swap deal that will see Nkrumah Bonner heading to Leeward Islands Hurricanes.The left-handed Deonarine, who scored over 500 runs last season representing Guyana Jaguars, declined a retainer contract with the Georgetown-based outfit and opted to enter the draft where he was selected by Hurricanes.Deonarine’s switch to Red Force was accommodated due to the fact that his wife is Trinidadian and playing for the Port of Spain franchise would allow him to spend more time with his family.The 32-year-old Deonarine will be a major asset to a Red Force side that struggled in last year’s competition and finished one from bottom in the six-team campaign.He was one of the catalysts behind Jaguars’ victory bid, stroking 514 runs at an average of 42 with two centuries. Deonarine can also bowl off spin and took 14 wickets last season.The PCL is set to bowl off in November.last_img read more

This ‘comedy’ is no longer a laughing matter!

first_imgDear Editor,The Coalition Government should be nominated for the Best Comedian Award at the next Oscar Awards Ceremony, and I am sure they will outclass all the others by miles!Firstly, they refused to accept a matter of simple mathematics; not calculus or trigonometry, but simple arithmetic. It was a matter of simply finding the majority of 65. Even a Grade 5 student would have told them that the answer is 33, and not 34.The erudite and learned Senior Council Mr Nigel Hughes bewildered the Attorney General, another ‘learned’ Senior Council, (and that was effortless) into believing that the majority is 34, and not 33, as is succinctly outlined in our Constitution. Even though the learned High Court Judge ruled that it is 33, they had to take it to our Appeal Court to make the 34 stand, albeit temporarily. It did appease them for a while after a much controversial decision granted in their favour; it was 2 to 1 in favour.Maybe some judges need to be nominated into that category as well!Our final Court of Appeal, the Caribbean Court of Justice, ultimately made minced meat of our ‘learned Attorney General and his legal team. The decision was a historic landmark which will forever be etched in the legal annals, since it once and for all shattered the nonsensical argument that 34 is the majority of 65.The Coalition’s team also took a sound trashing in constitutional law and jurisprudence. It not only taught Basil Williams and Nigel Hughes basic arithmetic, but gave them a lesson in a simple and literal meaning of Article 106 (6) of our Constitution.But this scenario is not the only reason for the Oscar nomination.Secondly, one would have thought that after the legal trashing by the CCJ, the Coalition would have sharpened up their basic English skills. But that did not materialise. It seemed as though the mindset of the Attorney General is rooted in absolute ignorance of the literal interpretation of Constitutional laws. But alas! Not only him, but ‘learned’ lawyers in the Coalition, such as Nagamootoo and Ramjattan!These should be nominated for comedians in a supporting role! They do not seem to understand that our Constitution already provided a 3-month time period wherein General and Regional Elections must be called after the date of successful passing of the no-confidence motion (NCM). There is no compromise, unless a two-thirds majority agrees to extend this timeline, which is an absolute impossibility! The Opposition is simply not interested.But the comical theatrics did not stop there. Ramjattan had to make himself a mockery when he told Berbicians that the President should submit a list of nominees for the GECOM Chair, and that since the Leader of the Opposition rejected Granger’s list, then Jagdeo is not acting in ‘good faith’! He kept chattering about ‘consensuality’ and ‘hammering’ out a positive outcome, but Ramjattan failed to realise that there is an Article in our Constitution which provides for the process which must be adhered to, and the CCJ made this clear: that ‘consensuality’ should be in accordance with that Article.Nothing outside of that was recommended, as Ramjattan wants Berbicians to believe. This man should stop thinking that he is the only ‘bright boy’ Berbice produced! Article 161(2) should be ‘hammered’ into his senses. It provided the steps in this process, wherein it is the Leader of the Opposition who must provide the names of the nominees and, if rejected, it is the President who must, according to the CCJ, provide reasons for his rejection. It must be recalled that Chief Justice (ag) Roxane George-Wiltshire had likewise so adjudicated.Moreover, the President is bound to do so, having now regard for the 3-month time limit. Any attempt to stall and frustrate the speedy appointment of the Chairman is unconstitutional and against the ruling of the CCJ.Lastly, what makes this comedy more laughable is that these comedians failed to realise that house-to-house registration, apart from being unwarranted, will not be in accordance with the 3-month time limit; therefore, any continuance with this process is in complete defiance of the CCJ’s ruling: that General and Regional Elections must be held within 3 months, as per our Constitution.This is an election for which GECOM had since 21 December, 2018 to prepare. It is time for Granger to select the GECOM Chairman from the list provided by Jagdeo; someone who is ‘not unacceptable’ to him, and announce the date for elections. This ‘comedy’ is no longer a laughing matter! Ramjattan should quit his asinine statements to Berbicians!Yours sincerely,Haseef Yusuflast_img read more

Isaboke stuns Kisumu Day in school games

They used the best opportunity they had late in the game to register their first win.Ebwali will take on Mbooni in their second match on Wednesday morning while Kisumu Day will look for redemption taking on Dagoretti High School.Meanwhile, St. Anthony’s Kitale started their campaign on a high with a nervy 1-0 win over Shimba Hills.In the Girls’ category, Nyanza’s Nyakach Girls whipped Central Region’s Karugwa 8-1 while Itigo hit Dagoretti Mixed 1-0.0Shares0000(Visited 8 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

In a tightly contested first half chances were at a premium with Marty McBride and Shaun Mc Elwaine having efforts for Cranford and Kevin Mulhern and Ryan Mc Fadden for Glenea. The second half saw Cranford mostly on the front foot and they were unlucky to have two penalty shouts turned down when Kyle Black and then Philip Buchanan went to ground in the area. Glenea scored the goal which turned out to be the winner in the 83rd minute when a Denis Boyle deflected shot hit the net off the crossbar. Cranford still had time to see a Seamus Friel shot brilliantly tipped over by Joe Coll. Best for Glenea were Joe Coll and Sean Maguire with Seamus Mc Laughlin and Ryan Mc Gonagle best for Cranford. Referee: Joe Mc Hugh.Lifford Celtic 3 Rathmullan Celtic 1Played in heavy conditions, Lifford settled quickest and went one ahead on 5 minutes thanks to a Stuart Carlin volley from 30 yards. Rathmullan cleared from a corner only for the full back to rifle the ball to the bottom corner. Lifford doubled their advantage soon after when Johnny Robb headed to the bottom corner following a cross from Alan Gethins on 15 minutes. As the half wore on Rathmullan got their reward when Oisin Mc Menamin headed home following a goalmouth scramble from a corner kick on the stroke of half time. The second half was a more even affair with both defence’s coming out on top resulting in very few clear cut chances for either team. Dara Patton almost equalised for Rathmullan from point blank range but Lee White was equal to the task. From the resulting kick-out Lifford wrapped up the three points when Mark Neeson was on hand to lob Ian Strain from 20 yards in the 85th minute. Team performances from both sides in what was a spirited game played in poor conditions.Curragh Athletic 3 Gweedore Celtic 1Curragh gained their first points of the season thanks to a very good performance and three well taken goals from Dan O Brien (2) and Shane Barclay. Playing against Gaeltacht club Gweedore Celtic, the home team deserved their victory and although they had to defend in numbers in the last ten minutes, they fully deserved the victory. The first half saw both keepers keep out certain goals, with Mickey Mc Kelvey tipping over a thunderbolt from Marcus Oliver before Roy Duffy produced the save of the match palming a point blank header against the bar. On thirty one minutes Shane Barclay shot wide as Curragh began to dominate and they deservedly went in front when forward Dan O’ Brien was put through on goal by Marcus Oliver and his delightful chip beat keeper Mickey Mc Kelvey to put Curragh one up at the break. The second half continued well for Curragh who then doubled their lead on forty nine minutes when Shane Barclay produced a brilliant individual goal beating three players before also chipping the ball over the advancing Mc Kelvey. Both teams then played some good football with Gweedore always looking to push forward and Curragh looking dangerous on the break. The Gaeltacht team did pull a goal back following a corner with Kieran Ferry netting on sixty five minutes but Dan O’ Brien wrapped up all three points on eighty one minutes when he rounded the keeper and scored from a very tight angle. Best for Curragh were Roy Duffy, Mickey O Brien, Neil Lloyd, Alan Boal and Dan O’ Brien along with youngsters Justin Mc Bride and Dillon Irwin.

The game sprang to life in the last half hour when Benny Byrne put the home side in front, finishing from close range. Kilmacrennan responded well and got an equaliser when Steven Mc Elwaine slotted the ball home. The home side then pressed in search of a winning goal and an excellent strike from Clint Walsh looked like it had sealed the three points for the home side. Kilmacrennan had different ideas and ensured they left with a point when Michael McLaughlin slipped through the defence to slot the ball under the town ‘keeper Dermot Mc Cafferty. Both sides pushed for a winner late on but the game ended all square. Good team performances from both sides. Milford United 1 St. Catherines 4Milford were beat by a harder working St. Catherines’ team who scored at vital times .

Both teams had chances, for Coyle and Short for the home team and Michael Connelly and Ciaran Mc Fadden for the visitors. Both defences cancelled each other out and a draw on the day was a fair result. Referee: Kevin Logue.Kerrykeel ’71 F.C. 5 Keadue Rovers 0The ‘71 got back to winning ways with a good win over a young Keadue side, the score-line not reflecting a good performance from the Dungloe men. Kerrykeel started well with Paddy Mc Grenaghan and Cathal Martin doing well in midfield and their first chance fell to Niall Doherty but his effort was well saved by Donal Boyle. Keadue had a goal ruled out for off-side on ten minutes and again went close on eighteen minutes with Ryan Green’s effort going wide. The ‘71 went in front on thirty five minutes when a great Aidan Mc Ateer cross was met by Johnny Nanny and he fired home from eighteen yards.Kerrykeel had a great start to the second half when Seimie Coshia Friel found room in the box and cooly shot home. The points were made safe on fifty eight minutes when Paddy Mc Grenaghan played in Niall Doherty and he brilliantly rounded the keeper and hit the bottom corner. Keadue, to their credit, never stopped but found Marty Mc Ateer, Patrick Mc Conigley and Aidan Mc Ateer a hindrance in defence. Paddy Mc Grenaghan made it four on seventy five minutes, this time Mark Friel set him up and he drove home from ten yards. Mark Friel rounded off the scoring on eighty eight minutes when he broke clear down the right and beat two defenders before striking from ten yards to beat Boyle.

They started strongly but passed up some great chances early on. Austin Mallon went closest but young Anthony O’Hagan pushed it round the post. They paid for this when Castlefin took the lead on twenty five minutes. PJ Mc Menamin scored with a freekick from thirty yards. They doubled their lead when they were awarded a penalty on thirty eight minutes. Ronan Tourish converting the kick. Lagan got a lifeline when Ruairi Crawford’s cross was turned in by a Castlefin defender.

Castlefin grabbed a third on eighty five minutes when Ronan Tourish pounced to score from close range. Lagan grabbed a second when they were awarded a penalty and Eunan Diver converted. Despite a late flurry Castlefin held on for three hard won points. Best for Lagan were Ronan Lennon, Ruairi Crawford, Oisin Kelly and Eunan Diver. For Castlefin Aaron and Anthony O’Hagan, Ronan Tourish and Simon Mc Glinchey did well. Referee: Ed Moore.Dunkineely Celtic 2 Drumoghill F.C. 4Played in perfect conditions at Darney Park this was a very competitive and entertaining contest. Dunkineely had the first strike on goal in the opening minute when Cian Kennedy shot narrowly wide following a long throw. Liam O’ Donnell had Drumoghill’s fist effort on 10 minutes which was just over the bar. Drumoghill took the lead on 28 minutes when Kevin Kelly scored with a direct free kick from the edge of the box. Dunkineely’s reply was instant. From the kick off they forced a corner and in the resulting scramble the referee awarded a penalty for a foul on Martin Cunningham. Adrian Nesbitt scored the penalty. Drumoghill continued to press and had a shot cleared off the line by Declan Murrin. On 40 minutes they drew level when they were awarded a penalty.

Drumoghill took the lead on 75 minutes. With the home team expecting a whistle for a foul Damien Crossan fired in a long range shot which flew into the top corner. They scored their fourth to seal the victory on 78 minutes when David O’ Connell headed home a free.Referee: Martin Mc AnnenyEany Celtic 0 Cappry Rovers 7Cappry Rovers secured all three points at Eany Park but it wasn’t till early in the second half that a fortunate goal from Dylan Ramsey got them on the scoresheet.

The Twin Towns outfit took the lead on fifteen minutes when David White scored. After that both sides had numerous chances but neither could add to the score-board.

A minutes silence was impeccably observed before the match in memory of Kara Mc Cole. Referee: Seamus Mc GroaryRaphoe Town 2 Dunlewy Celtic 1It took Raphoe a while to get into this game as the first 25 minutes went by without any goal mouth action. Raphoe sprung to life when a fine move involving David Craig and Jamie Gallagher who set up Gavin Mc Brearty to slot home with a fine finish. Raphoe stayed on top after this and went two up just after half time when Jamie Gallagher was on hand to slam home a rebound after a fine effort from Seamus Bogle was saved by the Dunlewey keeper. Raphoe should have made it three but Gallagher and Craig where both denied by some last ditch defending but credit to the away side they kept going and got a goal back after a great run by Mc Geady, beating four men and finishing well. Raphoe had to withstand some late pressure but held out and claimed a vital win. Stephen Craig, Seamus Bogle and Finbar Allen were best for Raphoe and a good team effort from a determined Dunlewy.Whitestrand United 2 Convoy Arsenal 1On a cold fresh day Whitestrand United took on Convoy Arsenal at Whitestrand Park. The match started with both teams being evenly matched and not many chances coming for either team. As the match progressed Convoy began to take control of the game and Whitestrand were second best for large parts of the early stages. The Whitestrand keeper kept his team in it with two superb saves as Convoy pressed for the opening goal. Then against the run of play Anthony Fisher seized upon a hopeful ball forward and he squared it to Paul Lynch who struck for goal. The Convoy keeper saved but was unable to keep out Michael Sweeney’s rebound conversion. That goal came against the run of play but it spurred “The Strand” on to score a second when James Gallagher hit a cross come shot which crossed the line in the 36th minute. The game was stop start as the referee gave a lot of free’s. This led to Convoy getting a goal back when Luke Harkin’s free found the bottom corner on 38 minutes. The referee then blew for half time with the game poised at 2-1.The second half was quite bad tempered with a few yellow cards and again a lot of free kicks. The game was much more evenly balanced with Michael Sweeney in particular having a few chances, which were saved by the Convoy keeper. Sean Gallagher hit a good strike from range, which went narrowly over the bar. As the match wore on Whitestrand seemed content to hold on for the victory, which was exactly what happened as late Convoy pressure led to nothing and the game ended 2-1. Best for the Whitestrand were Eamon Martin and Sean McFadden and it was a good overall team performance from Convoy.Glenree United 4 Drumbar F.C. 2On a bitterly cold but day on the banks of Sheephaven Bay it was JJ Mc Gettigan’s Red Shirts of Glenree who finished off a hard battle in style. The visitors got off to a good start when Brogan, their number ten, shot on goal and a Glenree defender deflected the ball to wrong foot his keeper on 10 minutes. Glenree responded positively with great work from Paul Coyle to assist Andrew Kelly who scored on 12 minutes. The visitors seemed to have the rub of the green on the day and Brogan again notched, this time a good effort top corner.And so the half finished with Drumbar having the advantage.A more positive approach to the game from United in the second half saw them equalise on 46 minutes through Paul Coyle. Then a masterclass of a dead ball free kick from Danny Langan saw the ball hit top corner. The final minutes were played out cagey enough and it was Danny Langan again who scored from an acute angle to tie up the affair.A good battling performance from Drumbar with John Cunningham and Danny Langan having a good game for the Carrigart men. Referee: Gerry RoddenDONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUEREPORTSSATURDAYDowntown CupDonegal Town Reserves 3 Curragh Athletic Reserves 1Donegal finished off their Downtown Cup campaign with a 3-1victory over a Curragh Athletic.

Donegal then settled into the game and took the lead when Joe Lafferty powered home a Ciaran O’Reilly corner. Donegal doubled their lead on the stroke of half time when Alex Mc Nelis pounced on confusion in the Curragh defence to put the home side two up at the break.Donegal came out strong for the second half and dominated the early stages with David Bustard and Paul Gerard Duncan both going close. Curragh remained a threat but where thwarted by some last ditch Donegal defending. The victory was sealed with twenty minutes left on the clock when Ciaran McGinley got the goal his performance deserved, running through to round the ‘keeper and slot the ball home. Curragh kept playing away and got a consolation goal when Dan O’Brien finished well inside the area. An entertaining game overall with good team displays from both sides.Erne Wanderers 2 Glencar Celtic 3Erne Wanderers hosted Glencar Celtic in this “Winner Take All” encounter in the Downtown Cup on Saturday. It was the visitors who came out on top in a very entertaining game which saw a host of chances for both teams. Erne got off to the perfect start and scored after only two minutes when Diarmuid Spratt found the net after a centre from Alan Russell fell to his feet, via a miscued effort from Michael McNeely, and he blasted into the roof of the net. Celtic levelled on twenty minutes when Pajo Rafferty broke into the box and went down under a rash challenge from Cassidy. Rafferty finished the penalty straight down the middle. Wanderers took the lead again on thirty minutes when Spratt broke the offside trap and rounded the keeper and centred for David Dolan to find the bottom corner from ten yards. Erne were now on top and had another three good chances to extend their lead but to no avail. At the other end Pajo was keeping the Erne backline on their toes and created three or four good chances that went abegging. The second half started with Glencar fast out of the blocks and they hit the post inside a minute. With Spratt causing problems for the Celtic defence Erne were still a threat on the counter attack and had two or three half chances but no end product. Glencar thought they levelled on the hour mark but it was ruled out for a marginal offside. The leveller came on seventy minutes when Erne went to sleep from a throw in and the centre was tapped in at the back post by Pajo from two yards. Erne pushed hard for a winner in the last quarter but Glencar were a serious threat on the break and thats what happened on eighty four minutes when an Erne shot from the edge of the box was blocked and the ball fell to a grey shirt and a long ball over the top found Pajo who raced clear and found the top corner from twenty yards with a left foot drive. This floored Wanderers and although they threw everything at Celtic in the last few minutes Celtic held firm. A great game between two fully committed teams with both teams looking like scoring every time they attacked. Best for Erne were Spratt and O’ Brien in nets with Pajo Rafferty the pick of the visitors. Referee: Andrew Mullin.Tullyvinney Rovers 2 Ramelton Mariners 2This Group B match pitted two teams together who have struggled to find any form in this season’s Cup competition. With both sides having lost their opening three matches in the group it was a credit to the players who played out an entertaining encounter. At the end a draw was probably a fair result and it means that neither side have finished the group stage without registering a point on the table. No doubt both sides will have better fortunes in the League.Referee: Barry HunterOrchard F.C. 3 Glenree United Reserves 3Orchard F.C. took the lead fifteen minutes into this game when Martin Sweeney chased down a back pass to the Glenree keeper, nicking it off him and scored easily.

Best for Gweedore United Reserves: Sean Paul Mc Mahon.
