first_imgPeru to send ex-football boss to US LIMA, Peru (AP): Peru’s president is signing off on the extradition of the country’s former football boss for his alleged involvement in a multibillion-dollar FIFA bribery scandal involving marketing and broadcasting rights. Manuel Burga has been in jail since December as part of the investigation. Peru’s Supreme Court in June had cleared the way for his extradition to the United States (US). President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski’s decree authorising the move came yesterday. It is not clear when Burga will be sent to the US. Burga oversaw Peru’s football federation for more than a decade until 2014. He has denied any wrongdoing. FIFA youth transfer rules challenged ZURICH, Switzerland (AP): FIFA rules that restrict youth players from being transferred worldwide are being challenged in a Swiss court. Zurich law firm Nater Dallafior Rechtsanwaelte says it filed the case for a 17-year-old player from Africa. It declined to identify him or any European club supporting the case. The case was filed Wednesday in Zurich’s cantonal (state) commercial court. FIFA says it had not been notified. The case argues FIFA rules discriminate against youths from outside the 28-member European Union. FIFA rules limit under-18s being transferred internationally to specific circumstances, such as a player’s family moving for non-football reasons. There are some exemptions for 16- and 17-year-olds to comply with European labour laws. Since 2014, FIFA imposed transfer bans on Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid over youth signings. Bale to have ankle surgery MADRID, Spain (AP): Gareth Bale will need surgery on his right ankle and is expected to be sidelined for at least two months. Real Madrid says Bale will undergo the procedure on Tuesday in London. Bale limped off the field after getting hurt in the second half of Madrid’s 2-1 win over Sporting Lisbon in the Champions League next Tuesday. Madrid did not give a timetable for Bale’s recovery, but players who undergo similar procedures are usually out between two and three months. Bale is certain to miss the match against Barcelona on December 3 at the Camp Nou, as well as FIFA’s Club World Cup later in the month.last_img read more

Hydro releases new poll on Site C ahead of planned construction start

first_imgData from the poll also suggests that 92 per cent of people surveyed agreed demand for electricity in the province will increase in the coming years.According to the poll, 75 per cent supported adding a new hydro dam and generating station to meet those needs.However, another 75 per cent supported buying more power from independent power producers operating smaller wind and run-of-river hydro projects.Another 64 per cent supported building more natural gas power plants.Advertisement BC Hydro is touting results of a new poll this morning saying support of its Site C project has increased across the province, however, British Columbians don’t appear to side one way or the other on how to meet future power needs.The telephone survey of 1,038 people by Abacus Data released Tuesday found that 59 per cent of British Columbians support the construction of the $8.8-billion dam, with only 17 per cent of those surveyed opposed.An additional 22 per cent said they would “accept” construction under certain circumstances, according to the results, though those circumstances were not defined.- Advertisement -On a regional level, the survey included 303 people from the north and northeastern portion of the province.According to Abacus, regional support for the dam’s construction is much of the same — just 51 per cent support building the dam, with 26 per cent opposed. Another 22 per cent said they would accept the dam’s construction under certain circumstances.The telephone survey was conducted between June 10 and 19, and has a margin of the error of 3.9 per cent.Advertisement This story will be updated.last_img read more

Egypt football star Salah signals progress in image dispute

first_img0Shares0000Liverpool’s Egyptian midfielder Mohamed Salah attends a training session at the team’s Melwood training complex in Liverpool, north west England, on April 23, 2018 on the eve of their first-leg UEFA Champions League semi-final football match against Roma. © AFP / Paul ELLISCAIRO, Egypt, Apr 30 – An image rights storm that has seen star Mohamed Salah lash out at Egyptian football authorities is on the way to being settled, the Liverpool playmaker has signalled.“We were promised a solution and God willing the issue is on its way to being resolved,” the midfield maestro tweeted late Sunday, while thanking his fans for their “unreal” support. The dispute has centred on an advertising campaign by the national team’s main sponsor, Telecom Egypt’s mobile arm WE, which has relied heavily on photos of Salah, who has his own contract with global telecom giant Vodafone.An initial hint of major discord came on April 20, when Salah’s representative Ramy Abbas Issa tweeted “we are having a very serious issue with the Egyptian Football Association”.Salah had signalled his growing frustration earlier on Sunday by tweeting “unfortunately the way it is being dealt with is very insulting. I was hoping the interaction would be classier than this.”Issa on Saturday complained that he and Salah had not even been contacted by the EFA. “Complete silence! What’s the plan?! We just see more and more billboards and ads coming out which we have never authorised!” he tweeted.But on Sunday Egypt’s Minister of Youth and Sports Khaled Abd Elaziz announced that “an agreement has been reached” with the football association “to carry out all the requests” by Salah.“I affirm that we will all stand beside him to implement all the contracts he signed in England, so that he does not face any problems,” the minister said on his Twitter account.The Twitter storm has marked a departure from Salah’s usual genteel online presence, which has generally been limited to photos of him in action and on the training field, or compliments for peers on the Liverpool and Egyptian national teams.The player has scored 43 goals so far this season, including a stunning brace in Liverpool’s 5-2 Champions League semi-final first leg demolition of Roma earlier this month.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

ULSTER SENIOR LEAGUE REPORTS: WINS FOR DRUMKEEN, COCKHILL, BONAGEE AND LK ROVERS

first_imgUSL Results & Reports 14.07.13Results4 Lanterns USL Bonagee Utd. 2 1 Fanad Utd.Finn Harps Res. 1 2 Letterkenny RoversKildrum Tigers 1 2 Cockhill CelticDrumkeen Utd. 4 3 Swilly Rovers DPD Division 1Swilly Rovers Res. 5 2 Bonagee Utd. Res.Letterkenny Rovers Res. 2 0 Drumkeen Utd. Res.ReportsCockhill Claim Win in St. Johnston Kildrum Tigers 1Cockhill Celtic 2JAMES Bradley stepped off the bench to score a priceless winner in the seventh minute of stoppage time against Kildrum Tigers at St Johnston. Bradley had only just come onto the field and, when Christy McLaughlin prodded into the box after Gerry Gill’s corner had over-run, Bradley kept his cool to steer home what could be a defining goal in this USL title race.The League leaders had got the perfect start when Gerard McLaughlin headed home the opener in the second minute. Malachy McDermott and Derek Doherty both tried their luck, but to no avail, while a good passage down Kildrum’s left channel between Dean Bonner, Sean Ferry and Darren Cassidy ended with the latter’s low cross being cleared. Garbhan Friel was just put off his stride by teenage ‘keeper Michael Lynch, leaving his 27th minute lob falling just wide, before Mark Moran’s powerful drive nestled in the arms of the Tigers stopper. Kildrum had suffered a first League defeat of the season at home to Drumkeen on Wednesday night but they were determined to get back on track here. Their attack sometimes lacked a penetrative edge, Barry O’Donnell’s low effort not troubling Gavin Cullen and Cassidy firing well wide. Ronan Coyle flashed a header just wide, before Friel stabbed a header inches away after being caught by surprise by a rebound. Lynch did well to hold a power-packed effort from McDermott and a minute later, with the game just entering its final ten minutes, Kildrum drew level when Cassidy superbly drilled home. When Liam O’Donnell cracked a volley off the post, it looked like a share of the spoils – only for sub Bradley to tear up the script.Drumkeen Keep Pressure on LeadersDrumkeen Utd. 4Swilly Rovers 3The game kicked off at 4 o’clock in Drumkeen, the conditions were very hot and made running difficult for players. The home side started strongly when David Craig took it down the flank passed the ball to Gary Patton who squared it to Richie Moore, Moore then fired into the bottom of the net to open the scoring on three minutes. Conor Carlin pushed to get a second after twelve minutes but was dispossessed by Dylan Hegarty. Swilly Rovers responded to the goal nine minutes later when a cross that was partially cleared fell to Jordan Toland who struck low into the bottom right corner from twenty yards. Before Drumkeen could recover from the blow of the equalizer Swilly attacked and won a penalty after Declan Curtis was brought down by Paul Given in the Drumkeen goal. Declan’s younger brother Ronan stepped up to put the ball in the back of the net to put the visitors ahead fourteen minutes into the game. Both teams pushed for goals with Blaine Curtis getting the best of these chances when he fired a shot over the bar after a mistake by Seamie Coshia Friel at the heart of the Drumkeen defence. David Craig was forced off after twenty minutes to be replaced by David Shovlin. Drumkeen earned a free from around twenty-five yards which was cleverly put away quickly by Mark Marley. The closing stages of the first half was evenly fought with the teams going in level at half time.The second didn’t take long to spring to life with bookings going to both teams Keith Hegarty receiving one as well as Gary Patton and both Seamie Friels. Ronan Curtis and his brother Blaine teamed up to put Swilly ahead on fifty seven minutes. On Sixty-six minutes Keith Hegarty received a second yellow and was sent off by referee Stephen Toner. Drumkeen got the second penalty of the game after seventy minutes, this was taken by Seamie Friel but the first effort was saved however Conor Carlin was on hand to fire the rebound into the back of the net. Carlin was causing trouble again when his effort was saved by Gareth Wade Gavin Reilly put the rebound into the bottom corner after 75 minutes. The closing stages were exciting with both teams coming close, but the main talking point was Coshia’s second yellow and the resulting sending off.Rovers Up To ThirdFinn Harps Res. 1Letterkenny Rovers 2Darren McElwaine was the Letterkenny Rovers hero as the men from the cathedral town came away with all three points from a sun drenched Finn Park on Sunday. Rovershad the best opportunities early in the game , first Oisin McMenamin hitting the side netting after just three minutes and Kieran Gorman firing over after Lee Toland had cleared off the line for Harps. The home side responded well, Forker playing a neat slide rule pass to McVeigh who shot wide and McVeigh again came close when he headed a Ward cross just over on 20 minutes. The sweltering conditions were not ideal for a pressing game , Harps endeavouring to keep possession , while Rovers held a good shape springing counter attacks with the always effective McElwaine as the focal point. Indeed it was McElwaine who broke the deadlock shortly after the half hour mark . Former Harps legend Johnathan Minnock’s beautifully struck corner was headed powerfully home by the Rovers no. 9.Rovers went on to create two more good chances before the break, O’Donnell and McMacken both with good efforts. Harps approached the second half on the front foot and got their reward a couple of minutes after the restart. McCarron attacking from the right hand side, was expected to square the ball across ,but instead twisted and turned, before finishing with precision. The home side continued to pass the ball with aplomb but might have been guilty of trying to walk the ball into the net at times. McVeigh and McLaughlin both had opportunities, but the experienced Rovers centre backs Gorman and Kelly held the line admirably. Harps had elected to play with three at the back and Rovers continued to prove a threat going forward. McMenamin and McMacken had chances from inside the box while Harkin and McCarron both passed up gilt edged chances for the home side. Referee Tommy McAree deserves credit for allowing both sets of players to take on water as the temperature continued to rise during the 90 minutes. It was that man McElwaine who got the decisive winner. Harps dithered in defence, and the Rovers no 9 poked home to the delight of the visiting support. Indeed “Macca” could have secured a hat-trick but his header was brilliantly saved by Danny Rodgers, making his debut in the Harps Goals. But his Lee Toland , also making his debut for Harps had a great opportunity for a late equaliser, but his curling free going just over Jason Quinn’s crossbar.Harps Reserves .

Sub: O’RourkeDPD Div. 1Swilly Rovers Res. 5Bonagee Utd. Res. 2An entertaining encounter at Swilly Park served up seven goals as the Ramelton men came out on top. Swilly were three one up at the break courtesy of a fine hat-track by Kyle Black with Seamus Browne responding for the visitors. The Swilly striker proved a real handful and surely staked a claim for a first team return. The second half was to take the same pattern as Laurence Toland scored the goal of the game with a fine strike from twenty five yards to extend the lead. Bonagee youngster Sam Murphy reduced the deficit with a fine solo effort but Daniel O’Donnell marked a fine performance at midfield with a deflected strike from thirty yards to round off a good victory for the home side.McGrath Double for RoversLetterkenny Rovers Res 2Drumkeen United Res 0Letterkenny Rovers got back to winning ways in the Ulster Senior League First Division with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Drumkeen United at a sun-kissed Leckview Park on Saturday afternoon. A goal in each from influential midfielder Kevin McGrath gave Rovers all three points as they reached the half way stage of their league season. The home side dominated proceedings early on with the lively Marty Vance and Ryan McCloskey both testing the goalkeeper Michael Gibson. The opening goal arrived on 22 minutes when right winger Kevin Doran slipped the ball in field to Kevin McGrath and from the edge of the box he unleashed a superb left foot drive which flew in past Gibson. At the other end Lee McMonagle had the best opportunity for the visitors following a good move but his shot on target was well charged down by Anthony Doherty – who along with Gareth Doherty were solid at the back. McGrath sealed the victory with his second goal of the game on 70 minutes. On this occasion McCloskey’s defence splitting pass found McGrath charging through inside the box and side stepped Gibson before tapping the ball home from an acute angle. Next up for Garret McDaid’s young team is a trip to table toppers Kildrum Tigers on Saturday.

GOLF NEWS: LETTERKENNY HOST CAIRNDHU GOLF CLUB IN ULSTER CUP COMPETITION

first_imgLetterkenny Golf News:Taking a well deserved “breather” following the Christmas and New Year festivities, golfers were once again out in force at Barnhill on Sunday last and, considering a few spells of overnight rain during the week, members were in abundance of agreement that the course was in the best condition ever for the time of year. Reading the greens as if they were his own back garden, Cat 4 handicapper Joe Diver [24], despite a “blank”, double bogey start, holed for birdie at 8th to take the turn with a pleasing 20pts and, making sure that he was in the mix with a inward nine of 21pts for an overall 41pts, still required a countback on the B.O.T. to take top spot from Michael O’ Mallaigh [13]. Michael’s start of birdie at first was quickly erased with three bogeys but, swinging away the holiday cobwebs, recorded pars from 7-13th, [an accumulation of 20pts] returning 22pts on outward nine but losing out on the countback, no doubt that double bogey at 14th to blame. Normal play was resumed in the gross section with 2015 Captain Gerard Duffy returning 31 gross points. CPR -DEFIBULATOR A refresher course will be held in Letterkenny clubhouse on Sunday 11th January, from 4pm – 7pm, for those qualified in CPR .**There will also be instruction for those who have not previously attended training for the use of the defibulator but who wish to do so.
