JN pumps $4m into 2016-17 KSAFA Jackie Bell KO

first_imgJamaica National Building Society, through its Visa credit card brand has pumped $4 million into the staging of the 28th Kingston and St Andrew Football Association (KSAFA) Jackie Bell Knockout competition. Plans for the 2016-17 KSAFA/JN Visa Jackie Bell KO were unveiled during a press launch at Jamaica National head office, located in Half-Way Tree, yesterday. Associate sponsor Avis Car Rental has provided a further $400,000 in the budget to run the competition that is tentatively set to kick off on Saturday, December 17. Soccer Express will provide 25 match balls to be used from the quarter-final stage, and Peak Bottling Company is the new hydration sponsor. Thirty-five clubs from the Corporate Area will participate in the competition, which began in 1987 in memory of the late football coach and administrator Winthorpe ‘Jackie’ Bell. In the first round, the 12 KSAFA-Magnum Super League teams and 16 Major League clubs will compete. The seven KSAFA clubs that are currently participating in the Red Stripe Premier League will step in during the third round. First-round draw: New Kingston vs Allman/Woodford; Rae Town vs Barbican; Rockfort vs Whitfield Town, Constant Spring vs Browns’ Town; Molynes United vs Bull Bay; Central Kingston vs Cooreville Gardens; Olympic Gardens vs Santos; Stony Hill vs Cavalier SC; Meadforest vs Swallowfield; Seaview Gardens vs Mountain View; Police National FC vs Pembroke Hall; Maxfield Park vs JDF FC and Greenwich Town vs Duhaney Park; Real Mona vs Shortwood United. President of KASAF A. B. Stewart Stephenson commended Jamaica national for its sponsorship of this season’s competition. “We welcome Jamaica National’s $4 million sponsorship of the Jackie Bell. They have been supporting KSAFA since 1996, and this year, JN will be using our competition to promote their Visa card brand,” Stephenson said. Carlene Edwards, JNBS promotion and sponsorship manager, said her company continues to enjoy a very rewarding partnership with KSAFA. “Our support of the 2016-17 knockout competition comes at a time when Jamaica National, as one of the leading financial organisations in our country, is undergoing tremendous changes as we embark on a transformation of the structure to the JN Group. However, within our new context, there are some fundamental elements of our JN ethos and culture, which will not be changed and that includes our commitment to sports and community development,” Edwards shared.

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

first_imgWarriors hunt Trail Blazers sweep PORTLAND, Oregon (AP): Stephen Curry scored 34 points – including a 3-pointer with just about a minute left that all but sealed the victory – and the Golden State Warriors overcame a slow start to beat the Portland Trail Blazers 119-113 and take a 3-0 lead in their first-round play-off series. Playing without both Kevin Durant and coach Steve Kerr, the Warriors came back Saturday night from a first-half 17-point deficit. Golden State can clinch the series with a win tonight in Game 4 at the Moda Center. Napoli held at Sassuolo MILAN (AP): Arkadiusz Milik scored his first goal since his lengthy injury layoff, but it wasn’t enough to prevent Napoli from drawing 2-2 at Sassuolo yesterday and missing the chance to move second in Serie A. Milik scored three minutes after coming off the bench to rescue a point for Napoli and move them to within one-point of second-placed Roma, which visit bottom club Pescara today. Second spot in Serie A secures automatic entry into the Champions League group stage, while the team that finishes third has to go through a play-off.last_img read more
