Barbados to open Regional U-15 defence against T&T
first_imgST JOHN’S, Antigua (CMC) – Four-time champions Barbados will open the defence of their Regional Under-15 Championship title against arch-rivals Trinidad and Tobago, when the tournament bowls off in Jamaica later this month.Ironically, the Barbadians lifted the title last year after beating T&T in the final round, when the championship was staged in Bridgetown.The tournament, which runs from March 28 to April 4, will see Leeward Islands, Guyana, Windward Islands and Jamaica joining Barbados and T&T to do battle over five rounds of one-day cricket.Cricket West Indies’ director of cricket, Jimmy Adams, said the tournament represented a chance for selectors to identify the future international stars`This is one of the key development tournaments on the Cricket West Indies annual calendar,” said the former West Indies captain.“This tournament serves the purpose of encouraging junior players from across the Caribbean to excel and to be given the opportunity for early recognition, while promoting competition among their peers at the regional level.“In our bid to make Windies a consistently successful side in the near and long-term future, it is important that we pay close attention to our development pipeline and make sure it is working effectively.”Leewards, who finished in second place last year, take on hosts Jamaica at Up Park Camp while Windwards, who were third last year, clash with Guyana at Kensington Cricket Club.This year represents the third time in the last six years that Jamaica will host the age-group tournament, and Adams believes this will be an excellent opportunity for players to also engage personal development off the field.“Jamaica is a great place to play the game, so it’s also an opportunity for the players to become acquainted with another culture and gain a greater appreciation for the region in which they live – that is also part of the learning experience of playing in a tournament like this,” he explained“We also hope that experiencing the passion that people from outside of their own territory have for the game will also help to inspire them to continue along the development pipeline and one day wear the Windies burgundy; so we look forward to seeing loads of talented players being unearthed at this year’s tournament.”SCHEDULE of matchesAll matches start at 09:30hrs local time, (East Caribbean add 1 hour)ROUND 1 – Wednesday, March 28Barbados vs Trinidad & Tobago – Melbourne OvalGuyana vs Windward Islands – Up Park CampLeeward Islands vs Jamaica – Kensington Cricket GroundROUND 2 – Thursday, March 29Windward Islands vs Barbados – Chedwin ParkTrinidad & Tobago vs Jamaica – Kensington Cricket GroundLeeward Islands vs Guyana – Melbourne OvalROUND 3 – Saturday, March 31Barbados vs Jamaica – Chedwin ParkWindward Islands vs Leeward Islands – Jamalco Cricket GroundTrinidad & Tobago vs Guyana – Windalco Cricket GroundROUND 4 – Monday, April 2Leeward Islands vs Barbados – Windalco Cricket GroundGuyana vs Jamaica – Jamalco Cricket GroundTrinidad & Tobago vs Windward Islands – Chedwin ParkROUND 5 – Wednesday, April 4Guyana vs Barbados – Up Park CampTrinidad & Tobago vs Leeward Islands – Kensington Cricket GroundJamaica vs Windward Islands – Melbourne OvalTOURNAMENT WINNERS (Hosts in brackets)1996 – Trinidad & Tobago (Trinidad & Tobago)1997 – Barbados (St. Lucia)1998 – Guyana (Jamaica)1999 – Guyana (Guyana)2000 – Trinidad & Tobago (Trinidad & Tobago)2001 – Trinidad & Tobago (Trinidad & Tobago)2002 – Trinidad & Tobago (Trinidad & Tobago)2003 – No winner (Jamaica)2004 – Barbados (St. Vincent & the Grenadines)2005 – Trinidad & Tobago (Trinidad & Tobago)2006 – Jamaica (Antigua & Barbuda)2007 – Windward Islands (Trinidad & Tobago)2008 – Jamaica (Dominica)2009 – Jamaica (Trinidad & Tobago)2010 – Trinidad & Tobago (Trinidad & Tobago)2011 – Jamaica (Trinidad & Tobago)2012 – Barbados (St. Kitts & Nevis)2013 – Trinidad & Tobago (Jamaica)2014 – Guyana (Jamaica)2015 – Guyana (Guyana)2016 – Trinidad & Tobago (Grenada)2017 – Barbados (Barbados)last_img

“Now it’s up to him” – Player admits talking to Liverpool…

first_imgA number of outlets in Italy were running the story, claiming the Serie A side were considering making a move for the Liverpool midfielder to replace the most likely departing Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.The idea of a loan with a view to buy was thrown around after the Serbia international impressed on loan at Cardiff last season, earning himself a spot in his national team at the World Cup in Russia.With their run in the competition now over, transfers involving the pair can now take place, after some much needed rest.Embed from Getty ImagesThis is what Milinkovic-Savic told Corriere dello Sport on Friday, where he was also asked about Grujic’s future, and whether or not he’d spoken to the Liverpool starlet about a possible reunion in Rome.He said: “Obviously, I told him all the great things about Lazio, and that if he came here he will surely do well. Now it’s up to him to decide.”The story involving the 22-year-old has gone a bit cold lately, perhaps due to his involvement in Russia, but if Lazio are still interested, we can guarantee you the rumour of him leaving Anfield will make a resurgence in the coming days.Jürgen Klopp doesn’t seem intent on including him in his first-team squad after the capture of Fabinho and the arrival of Naby Keita, so he might as well go play football elsewhere.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

I’ve hated that for as long as I’ve cared about such things…I already posted in the other thread and it was almost exactly the same as this. I love how the script on the orange helmets both matches the script used by the basketball team now and is similar in the overall idea to the 80s helmets. The blue matte helmet is a nice look at all, but I wouldn’t want to see it too much. I don’t think we’ve ever used anything other than an orange helmet, so I don’t want to stray too far from that. But wearing the blue matte for a game each year would be nice. I really hope they decide to use these, it would be a nice update. And I’d have to imagine that a uniform change would go along with that. I don’t necessarily think the current uniforms are bad, but there’s a lot of room for improvement.

Tottenham return home with vital win over Palace

first_imgLONDON,  (Reuters) – Tottenham Hotspur marked their long-awaited homecoming with a vital 2-0 win over Crystal Palace in the first Premier League game at their new stadium yesterday to revive their faltering top-four hopes. It was hardly a classic to mark the official opening of the spectacular 62,062-seat stadium, but second-half goals by Son Heung-min and Christian Eriksen ensured the London club began a new era with a win to move back above Arsenal into third place.“It’s just amazing. What an unbelievable stadium. The noise was just so loud,” South Korean Son, whose 12th league goal of the season came in front of the stadium’s steepling 17,500-seat single tier South Stand, told Sky Sports.“To score the first goal at this stadium. White Hart Lane is our history but the new stadium… I can’t believe it.” Having moved out of their historic old stadium in May 2017, Tottenham have lodged at Wembley for nearly two seasons after building issues caused a six-month delay to their new arena.After a couple of test events the official opening was marked by a pre-match ceremony involving a brass band, a school choir and fireworks illuminating the golden cockerel sitting proudly on top of the South Stand.Tottenham’s worst slump in Mauricio Pochettino’s five years in charge — one point from five games — had seen his side’s outside shot at the title replaced by the fear of being swallowed by the chasing pack in the race for a top-four spot. After failing to get an early breakthrough the anxiety began to show, with Eriksen and Danny Rose both failing to capitalise on chances while Harry Kane had a free kick deflected wide.It was left to Son, Tottenham’s often unsung hero, to break the deadlock and etch his name into the club’s history books.Eriksen did well to win back possession and play in Son on the right and the striker then cut in before firing goalwards — his shot diverting wickedly off Palace skipper Luka Milivojevic to wrong-foot keeper Vicente Guaita. With Tottenham’s fans finally creating the atmosphere the occasion merited, Kane blazed over before his stumbling run into the area ended with Eriksen sweeping home from close range.Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris made two superb late saves to spare the fans a nail-biting finale and send them inside to christen the stadium’s array of swanky new bars with a crucial win to celebrate.Victory lifted Spurs back into third spot having been overtaken by local rivals Arsenal at the weekend. They have 64 points from 32 games with neighbours Arsenal, having played a game less, on 63 along with Chelsea, who beat Brighton & Hove Albion 3-0, while Manchester United are on 61 in the race for Champions League spots.($1 = 0.7601 pounds)last_img read more

first_img Spotlight ups matchday commentary reach and capacity for new EPL Season  August 21, 2020 Share Premier League looks to broadcast every behind-closed-door fixture August 28, 2020 Share Successful summer leaves Leadstar positive over industry’s recovery August 18, 2020 BetonBrazil has been confirmed as an Affiliate & Media Event Sponsor for Betting on Sports 2016!BetonBrazil.com is the latest gambling site to be launched by UK licensed operator, Argyll Entertainment, and features the name, face and voice of ex-Scottish International footballer turned award-winning broadcaster, Alan Brazil, as its brand ambassador.Stuart Tilly, CEO at Argyll Entertainment, shared his excitement over the conference agenda, and revealed the two panel sessions he is most looking forward to attending.SBC: What do you find most appealing about Betting on Sports?ST: Its targeted focus on the sports betting industry means the conference agenda can cover a much broader range of topics, and discuss points of interest in much more detail than general sports betting conference themes are able to.SBC: What are you looking forward to being debated in the conference area?ST: The panel on user engagement in real-time is of particular interest given our brand’s focus on player retention. In addition, given my involvement in fantasy sports, I’m also keen to hear how the DFS operators are looking to work with bookmakers in the UK market.SBC: How can the betting industry make itself more appealing to wider sports consumers and stakeholders?ST: More focus on engagement rather than pure acquisition. We believe that in the UK, from operator to operator, customers are generally presented with the same gambling products, the same acquisition bonuses and the same loyalty rewards. Operators don’t seem to place much emphasis on differentiation or engagement, culminating in an all too often flat, bland and transactional experience for the customer.At Bet on Brazil, we’re trying to address that imbalance by leveraging the lively, knowledgeable and charismatic personality of our ambassador Alan, in the way we offer our services to, and interact with, our customers. Our customers will be able to consume a whole range of exclusive video, audio and written content throughout the site and have the chance to compete for “money can’t buy” prizes and exclusive access to Alan and his friends, all whilst still being able to enjoy a first class gambling product.SBC: Apart from football, what do you think is the most interesting thing to bet on?ST: Esports is obviously high on the buzz word list at the moment. However, I think the growing consumption of music, TV and other forms of celebrity entertainment, especially on smart devices, should not be overlooked.SBC: What does the rest of 2016 have in-store for you?ST: We’ve launched our sports-only offering for the start of the Premier League season, and our very own in-play fantasy football game, Brazil’s Fantasy Fever. During the coming months on Bet on Brazil, we intend to roll out our full sports and horse racing offering, as well as a rich and varied portfolio of casino slots, table games and live dealer products.Alongside all of this, customers will be treated to an entertaining mix of opinion, commentary and frolics from Alan and his pals via podcasts, videos and articles, focusing on all the action, controversy and key talking points that come up from week to week.We’ve also got some other themed websites in the pipeline, expanding on our company’s strategy of offering targeted brand and/or themed gambling products to different consumer segments to maximise player loyalty and extend the average player life-cycle.___________________________________Click here to join BetonBrazil at Betting on Sports this September (15 & 16)!

Part 1: Life On The Road, 30 Days of #GiveASpit and baseball

first_imgSO, I NEVER DESIGNED THE 30-30 MLB #GiveASpit Tour to be written about. It just kind of happened that way because, at heart, I’m a writer. And suddenly, I feel like I have a lot I want to say and as much as I talk on the radio at WNST.net & AM 1570 around the clock about all sorts of things, this story of my baseball bucket list trip was meant to be told in writing.Ever since my wife Jennifer was diagnosed with leukemia in March 2014, I really haven’t written much publicly for lots of reasons. I wrote a massive blog about my ongoing pursuit of happiness back on August 24th, but over the past year I’ve been observing, measuring and planning this summer baseball adventure. There’ve been no blogs, no books but plenty of “statuses” in social media on my Facebook and Twitter. Mainly, it’s been a lack of time but certainly not a lack of inspiration. Some of my deepest thoughts through her miraculous journey have been written down but much of it has been best kept to myself for the time being.I made a lot of changes at WNST in August 2014 and I’ve been doing lots of radio over the past year.I think I’m doing the best work of my career but that’s for you to judge if you listen to WNST.net or AM 1570 at any point around the clock. I talk to the smartest people on the planet about sports. We have conversations. There’s no hysteria. There’s no ridiculous accusations or a focus on rumormongering, outrageous statements or drumming up phone calls. We don’t do outrage for outrage’s sake. Never have.And over the past year, I’ve been mapping the rest of my personal journey, my personal brand and trying to figure out what to do with the rest of my life.Let me start with this: I’m very lucky and very grateful for all of the awesomeness, opportunity and love I’ve received over the years from listeners, the community, athletes and coaches, and friends and sponsors who have kept WNST going since 1998.On the eve of my 25th year – 2016 will be our silver anniversary on the radio – this life spent in the bizarre circus of Baltimore sports media has come full circle. I’ve salvaged and improved my business and personal brand after years of neglect from within. I’m treasuring my life and that of my wife and family. I’m really enjoying doing radio every day and I have no plans to leave the airwaves, hire more hosts or sell or leave WNST.Although I haven’t written a lot over the past year – and that’s about to change – it’s been a great time and this blog will catch you up on that.And sometimes, it’s really much more convenient to write about life in 140 characters or less on Twitter. Or, perhaps, at least 140 characters at a time. But my story has evolved and I have a lot on my mind and the 30-30 #GiveASpit baseball tour this summer has made me want to share more about my journey.Many people asked me about my epic baseball tour and encouraged me to write about it.I’m glad you’re here and hope you enjoy my storytelling and observations.And even if no one reads this, it’s a bit cathartic to share my thoughts especially when I go around Baltimore and hear so much gossip, rumorama and thoughts attributed to me that really have nothing to do with me.Such is life as a public figure. Sad, but true…It was also quite the reality check for me when I saw such a diminished audience for “Purple Reign 2: Faith, Family & Football – A Baltimore Love Story” back in 2012. It was disheartening to hear people everywhere tell me that they really don’t read books Part 1: Prelude and Back Story“The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him, he’s always doing both.” – James A.
