Gardner underlines teamwork at U-13 launch

first_img “We expect you (teams) to play fair football, have a good season, and may the best team win,” said Hopeton Gilchrist, the competition match coordinator. Christopher Denny, VMBS’s VP of sales and services, outlined that company is proud of the almost three decades commitment to both youth and football development in the west. “The competition has contributed to the future of football,” said Denny. “It has honed the skills of many, some of whom have moved on to play nationally and internationally. It has also fostered camaraderie within the school communities as parents, spectators and general supporters band together for each successful staging,” he added. Defending champions Granville All-Age and Barracks Road Primary kicked off the first match in the competition at the UDC playing field in the second city. May the best team win Best choice “Sometimes you are on the field and want to shoot to goal but the best choice is to pass the ball to your teammate because he is in a better position to score. At the end of the day, that’s what is more important for the team,” he added. Gardner further urged the young players to eat right, train hard and above all else, be disciplined and never give up on their dreams. “There were many times when I wanted to give up when I used to be in England, the weather got cold and the going gets tough, but there was a motto that I grew up on, and that was, ‘a quitter never wins and a winner never quits’,” he noted while wishing the teams all the best in the competition. The 2017 competition will feature six zones and the top two teams from each zone will advance to the quarter-finals. The keenly contested tournament is expected to run for two months, and in addition to cash prizes, the teams and their respective players will also be up for best defender and top goalscorer, among other sectional prizes. Former English Premier League football player and former Jamaica national football star, Ricardo ‘Bibi’ Gardner, brought the message of teamwork to the future generation of footballers at Wednesday’s kick-off of the 27th VMBS/St James Football Association Under-13 football competition in Montego Bay, St James. Gardner told the 31 primary school football teams that there is no room for selfishness on the field and everyone should instead be a team player who makes decisions that benefit their respective squads. “You should remember that the game of football is not only about you but is about the entire team,” said Gardner, who currently coaches the National Under-20 men’s team.last_img read more

Ronaldo, Bale, Benzema out

first_img SCORELESS FOR A WHILE But since then, he has been scoreless in six matches, including a 2-1 win at Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday when Cristiano Ronaldo netted both of Madrid’s goals. Bale has seven goals for Madrid in this campaign. Zidane said he wasn’t sure if Bale would be ready next week to play Bayern in the return leg of the quarter-final. “I’m worried about it because I don’t like to see players out injured and all the more so during the run-in,” Zidane said. “He was excited (to play) after having spent three months out, but he knows that it’s not a serious (injury), it’s just a setback. “We’ll be monitoring his progress every day.” Madrid have gone a Spanish-record 53 straight games scoring at least once. They are closing in on Bayern’s European record of 61 consecutive games with at least a goal, from March 2013 to April 2014. Even playing away and without its big guns, Sporting look like easy pickings for the Liga front runner. Sporting are in the relegation zone and five points from safety. BARCELONA, Spain (AP): Real Madrid will have to continue their march towards their first Spanish league title in five years today without scoring trio Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, and Gareth Bale. While Ronaldo and Benzema, along with goalkeeper Keylor Navas, will rest when Madrid visit Sporting Gijon, coach Zinedine Zidane said yesterday that an unidentified leg injury will keep Bale from playing. “We’ll have to see what his injury is,” Zidane said. “He has some swelling to his soleus. It’s a muscular issue on the area he was operated on.” Bale underwent surgery on his right ankle at the end of November, sidelining him until he made a return as a substitute against Espanyol on February 18. Bale scored late to seal that 2-0 win over Espanyol, and two games later he struck again to start a 3-2 fightback at Villarreal.last_img read more

McGregor’s biggest rival: ‘No way’ Conor beats Mayweather

first_imgTeen gunned down in Masbate “There is no way McGregor can defeat Mayweather,” Aldo said. “Mayweather has done this his entire life, and it’s a different sport.”The way Aldo sees it, McGregor has obvious motivations for the spectacle that will occur Aug. 26 in Las Vegas — and those motivations don’t include boxing glory.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony? SC rules in favor of Espinosa, orders promoter heirs to pay boxing legendSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’“After the Mayweather fight, he’ll get lots of millions of dollars,” Aldo said. “Probably he’ll never fight again.”Aldo was the most dominant champion in mixed martial arts until McGregor set his sights on the Brazilian star several years ago. McGregor embarrassed and infuriated the champ with his loquacious showmanship during the buildup to their December 2015 bout — and then McGregor stunned the UFC with a 13-second knockout of Aldo, flattening the feared 145-pound star with one punch.

McGregor worked relentlessly to get under Aldo’s skin during the months before their fight, and Aldo recognizes the similarities in the mental game McGregor is playing against Mayweather.McGregor calls himself “Mystic Mac” due to his ability to predict the results of his fights. While he has been wrong before — such as in his submission loss to Nate Diaz last year — he has shown a remarkable ability to back up his boasts with results.McGregor vowed to stop Mayweather within four rounds during their uproarious promotional tour last month, but Aldo is among those who don’t think even McGregor believes it. Aldo saw the posturing and insult-trading as something else entirely.“It’s a joke,” Aldo said. “He’s just looking for the money.”Aldo spoke while in Los Angeles to support Brazilian boxer Esquiva Falcao, who fought on the undercard of Vasyl Lomachenko’s victory over Miguel Marriaga.ADVERTISEMENT Albay to send off disaster response team to Batangas McGregor never defended the featherweight belt that he took from Aldo, who reclaimed that 145-pound title last year with a win over Frankie Edgar. Aldo lost the belt again in June to Max Holloway, who stopped him in the third round in Brazil.Aldo said he doesn’t plan to move up to lightweight, but hopes to reclaim the featherweight belt from Holloway, who received praise from Aldo. The loss to McGregor stings much more.“(McGregor) can say whatever he wants, but he was a lucky guy,” Aldo said. “One punch and he finished it.
