Follow The Trace | The Fletcher Blueprint

first_img ELITE YOUNG PLAYERS The likes of Alex Marshall of St George’s College, Jahwani Hinds of Wolmer’s, Craigton Charlton of Clarendon College, are also elite young players, who, as a matter of routine, should all be playing premier league football, such is the quality they possess. All these players should at least be giving their football talent the best possible chance to reach its full potential. A successful career in professional football is indeed a long shot, but it all starts with the intent and the conviction to go for it. This intent starts with self-belief, ambition and desire – qualities which are clearly in the DNA of Fletcher, who backed up his confident pregame utterances by delivering the goods at this now elevated level. The Cornwall College striker was obviously not the least bit intimidated or daunted by the much-vaunted disparity in the quality, intensity and pace between schoolboy football and the premier league. His brash fearlessness and near naivety are qualities that are ideal for young players and should be fully exploited in the general gamble and investment in youth. I wish Jourdaine Fletcher more and more success in his premier league endeavours and beyond. His success at this level will be vital not only to his personal future, but, symbolically, to a generation of players who are beginning to lose faith in their talents and abilities, and what they could achieve from the sport of football. This stagnated generation of players desperately needs to be reminded that there is still a path to success. They need a new blueprint, with a star player such as Jourdaine Fletcher to follow. The calls have been loud and clear, but until they get overseas professional contracts, the best of Jamaica’s young schoolboy football talent should be playing at the highest level available – the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL). Perhaps the very best of an outstanding crop of schoolboy players in 2016, ace Cornwall College striker Jourdaine Fletcher has begun to prove that point. He immediately made the step up to the RSPL by not just turning out for champions Montego Bay United at the weekend, but scoring a brilliant winner for the defending champions. The willingness and confidence expressed by Fletcher to play ‘big man’ football, as expressed in a pregame interview, and as executed on debut, make an important statement for the way forward for Jamaica’s football. Montego Bay United, with arguably the deepest squad in the league, in terms of quality, must also be commended for showing the vision to open their doors and welcome the youngsters. The fact of the matter is that players at 18 and 19 years old are not young in real football terms. Therefore, it ought not to be a big spectacle for a player at 19 years old to be playing in our substandard semi-professional premier league. Eighteen- and 19-year-olds are active star players in many top football leagues around the world, but such as been the recent stagnation in thought and foresight that this has become the exception here in Jamaica. Our praise for Fletcher and the other standout schoolboy players who have made the transition to other premier league clubs goes hand in hand with the disappointment at some of the other outstanding schoolboy talent who have either not chosen to make the upward step, or have not been given the opportunity by their club of choice.last_img read more

Follow the trace | We must improve our playing surfaces

first_img It is difficult, if not impossible, to quantify the effect of the surface on the quality of football, but anecdotally, the difference in the degree of difficulty in the execution of the basic skills on an average Jamaican surface, compared to the average surface in England or Spain must be at least fifty percent. Meaning, all things being equal, players or teams would play and look twice as good when playing at Wembley stadium in England than they would look playing at The Compound in Harbour View. This is a major handicap with which every young and emerging Jamaican player has to cope in an already weak and inefficient structure, and has helped to set back the rate of comparative development of our young players for several years. It remains difficult to fathom that Jamaica, ‘The Land of Wood and Water’, is so inept at something as basic as building and maintaining some quality playing facilities for football. The cost of the significant amount of running water needed to maintain these surfaces, I have been told, is a major prohibitive factor. An excuse that is hard to accept if we are really serious about developing our football. In one of his most inspired pronouncements made by my co-host on the morning radio programme Sports Explosion on Hitz 92 FM, Earl ‘The Bald Eagle’ Bailey has repeatedly asked the question, how much better would local premier league clubs such as Montego Bay United, Arnett Gardens, Tivoli Gardens, or Humble Lion look if they played weekly games at Old Trafford, at Stamford Bridge, at The Emirates Stadium or at Anfield? Conversely, how would Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal or Liverpool, with all their millionaire star players, perform on the surfaces at the Tony Spalding Sports Complex, or at the Drewsland Mini Stadium, or at the Effortville Community Center? How much top-quality football would those big teams, with all their big players, play on our sub-par surfaces? I suggest all these teams and all these players would look very ordinary on our surfaces, highlighting how vital a dynamic the playing surface is to the overall football product, something we are obviously yet to grasp. In the continued quest for a prudent and sustainable strategy of development for Jamaica’s young football talent, one crucial component that keeps getting swept under the carpet is the atrocious condition of our playing surfaces. It is perhaps the most debilitating of the many factors which have stymied the development of our young players. The football surface is the basic facilitating component of the game itself, which renders Jamaica’s continued relevance in the world game nothing short of miraculous, based on the poor quality of our surfaces. The execution of basic football skills such as trapping, passing, and dribbling depend heavily on the quality of the surface. Therefore, bumpy and uneven pitches add exponentially to the difficulty in the grasping of these simple basics. There are a few relatively good football facilities scattered across Jamaica. The National Stadium, Stadium East, the Montego Bay Sports Complex, and the St Elizabeth Technical High School facility are all good surfaces in a Jamaican context, but woefully inadequate when compared to even the most basic of training grounds in the developed football nations such as Mexico and the United States; not to mention the lush green carpets across Europe. 50% DIFFERENCElast_img read more

Maguire, Chalobah called up for England World Cup qualifiers

first_imgSouthgate had asked Rooney to join the squad, but the Everton striker, who is England’s all-time leading scorer, on Wednesday announced he has decided to call time on his international career at the age of 31.Southgate is relishing the chance to see more of Maguire as injury prevented him being called up for England’s World Cup qualifying draw against Scotland and friendly defeat by France at the end of last season.Maguire is in his first season with Leicester after leaving Hull and Southgate said: “I thought his performances for Hull were very good. He’s a defender that’s very comfortable with the ball and that’s the profile of international football.“I think he’s already adjusted really well at Leicester to a new club. He plays with great composure and can defend the ball in the box.“So I think it’s a really good opportunity for us to have a look at him.”Chalobah was allowed to leave Chelsea in the close-season after struggling to break into Antonio Conte’s side, but Southgate has been impressed by his performances for Watford and England’s Under-21s.“Nathaniel has started the season extremely well with Watford. He’s tactically an intelligent player and we know what he can bring,” he said.Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck returns to the squad having not appeared since a win over Germany in March 2016, but Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana misses out due to injury.Southgate is optimistic about the future after England won the Under-20 World Cup and Under-19 European titles, while other age group teams reached the European Under-21 and Under-17 Championship semi-finals.“You can see by the squad we’ve named, some younger players coming in, who we’ve been looking at for a while and we want to see that. We have to have an eye on developing the future,” he added.“I did see the value of having some senior players around that. The likes of Jermain Defoe for example, who can help nurture some younger players as well as play a part – but equally we have to look forward.”Squad:Goalkeepers: Joe Hart (West Ham), Jack Butland (Stoke), Jordan Pickford (Everton), Tom Heaton (Burnley)Defenders: Ryan Bertrand (Southampton), Aaron Cresswell (West Ham), Gary Cahill (Chelsea), Phil Jones (Man Utd), Harry Maguire (Leicester), John Stones (Man City), Michael Keane (Everton), Chris Smalling (Man Utd), Kyle Walker (Man City), Kieran Trippier (Tottenham)Midfielders: Eric Dier (Tottenham), Nathaniel Chalobah (Watford), Jake Livermore (West Brom), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Raheem Sterling (Man City), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Arsenal), Dele Alli (Tottenham), Jesse Lingard (Man Utd)Forwards: Marcus Rashford (Man Utd), Danny Welbeck (Arsenal), Harry Kane (Tottenham), Jamie Vardy (Leicester), Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool), Jermaine Defoe (Bournemouth)0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Nathaniel Chalobah (right) in action during England’s Under21 match against Italy in 2015 © AFP / Joe KlamarLondon, United Kingdom, Aug 24 – England manager Gareth Southgate has handed first call-ups to uncapped duo Harry Maguire and Nathaniel Chalobah for next month’s World Cup qualifiers against Malta and Slovakia.In the first England squad since Wayne Rooney’s international retirement, Southgate named Leicester defender Maguire and Watford midfielder Chalobah in a 28-man group to face Malta and Slovakia in World Cup qualifiers on September 1 and 4 respectively.last_img read more

I am happy to have them and I am grateful to the management for letting me have the final word on the transfers,” the American tactician said.He added; “We are still missing some key players, maybe about five but I am hoping we can get them before the season begins.”Sofapaka FC head coach Melis Medo poses with eight of his new signings after a training session at the Eastleigh High School on November 16, 2018.

The tactician says he is impressed by the work ethic and hunger shown by the players in training and is already looking forward to the season start.“I am looking forward to working more and more with them. But so far I like what I have seen in the players and the work ethic they have shown. We are just trying to build the team and work on the chemistry and know which player should play where,” the tactician said.The coach has meanwhile said there’s pressure on his shoulders to deliver titles at the club that hasn’t lifted a trophy since their Football Kenya Federation Shield conquest in 2014.Sofapaka FC head coach Melis Medo watches as his players stretch after a training session at the Eastleigh High School on November 16, 2018.

I am okay with the pressure because I function better under pressure,”“But we need to be patient a little bit. My target is to start high then maintain the momentum. It will be a tricky season because it is very short and condensed and I hope with less injuries we can fight,” the tactician added.Medo will have an interesting start to the season as he will come up against his immediate former side Nakumatt, now renamed Mount Kenya United on December 8.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Is your school up for the ‘1for1@1 Challenge’ to help beat cancer?

first_imgAfter launching the 1for1@1 Schools Challenge earlier this week on Donegal Daily, Robert O’Connor and his committee at Relay for Life Donegal have already had a great response from schools from various parts of the county saying that they will take part in the challenge. We here at Donegal Daily have teamed up with ‘Relay for Life Donegal’ as cancer affects every family, either directly or indirectly, and it is for this reason we are asking every school in Donegal for your help.The challenge will run from Monday the 1st of May until Friday the 19th of May. Between those dates we are asking schools from Malin Head to Bundoran and from Lifford to Arranmore Island to choose a day and at one o’clock to carry out your challenge and when completed we ask you to hand in one euro per child to the school- hence the name 1@1for 1!If there is more than one child in the family one euro per family is all we are asking.During that time any school, national, secondary or third level are invited to take part in the challenge.The challenge can be anything that the individual school decides to do at one-o-clock on the day they choose between those dates and when completed each student brings €1  into the school, hence the name the 1at1for1 Challenge. It can be walking around the school yard for a kilometre, a mannequin challenge, a singing or dancing challenge or indeed your school could possibly do a challenge that could go viral!If at all possible we would like all schools to do a one-minute recording of your challenge and to send it to :- relayforlifedonegal@gmail.com, and they in turn will forward it to us at Donegal Daily.As you can appreciate it would be impossible to put every single video up on our site but if you also include a photograph we will ensure that all photos will be posted. ( please note that Relay for Life will show all videos on a large screen during this year’s event).Cancer does affect every family and every single euro raised goes towards the extensive research programme currently underway at Letterkenny University Hospital for cancer survivors.  Irrespective of the size of your school ‘Relay for Life Donegal’ are hoping that you will take part because ‘’every euro’’ raised is so important to them.The cost of the Research Programme is approximately €100,000 . Donegal Daily will continue to update you about the challenge in the lead up to the start date on May 1st.For further information contact Robert O’Connor on (087) 2716344 or Seamus Mc Bride on (087) 2289477 or email relayforlifedonegal@gmail.comIs your school up for the ‘1for1@1 Challenge’ to help beat cancer? was last modified: April 9th, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare 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:1for1@1charityDonegal DailyRelay for LifeSCHOOLlast_img read more
