Coley disappointed with Reggae Boyz axe

first_imgFormer national senior men’s team football coach Miguel Coley says he was disappointed after being removed from the Reggae Boyz coaching set-up. Coley spent three years as the deputy to former head coach Winfried Schaefer, but was replaced by the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) following the failed World Cup 2018 qualifying campaign. “I felt disappointed. I believe I have proven myself. It is a job and those in charge decided that I am no longer needed,” said the 34-year-old Coley during an interview with The Gleaner yesterday. Coley, a multiple title-winning coach with Jamaica College, also underlined that young, local talent needs proper nurturing in order to create better players, which, he notes, will help move the Reggae Boyz programme forward. Nurture young talent Speaking in relation to Jamaica’s recent 1-0 loss to the United States in a friendly international last Friday, Coley lauded the handing of debuts to 20 year-old Shamar Nicholson and Cornwall College schoolboy Jourdain Fletcher. “We have to create a system of play. We have to nurture our better young talent, then get the synergy between local talent and overseas-based professionals,” said Coley. “The local coaches need to be qualified in order to understand how to create better players. We have to take a business approach to football from the club level locally,” he added. With regards to the local youngsters in the senior programme, Coley underlined that they need time to develop, and implored those in charge to believe in the talent. “We can’t have a programme that is World Cup based. We need a structure for better players. It has to be player driven,” Coley concluded.last_img read more

File to be sent for legal advice – Crime Chief

first_img…doctor, 6 others remain in custodySeven persons — including the doctor who had reportedly administered medical attention to the suspected injured gunman who had shot and killed businessman Deon Stoll in front of the El Dorado Trading Inc on Da Silva Street in Newtown, Kitty — remain in Police custody.Dead businessman: Deon StollThis is according to acting Crime Chief Michael Kingston, who on Thursday told Guyana Times that, in addition to these seven individuals, Police are hunting for one other person.The Police had issued wanted bulletins for Delon “Demon” Morgan and 23-year-old Lennox Estwic in relation to this shooting incident. Morgan was arrested at a Police roadblock at Cove and John, East Coast Demerara (ECD) at about 05:45h on Tuesday. He had a gunshot wound to his right side chest.Estwic, his alleged accomplice, of Lot 640 South Amelia’s Ward, Linden, Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice), is still on the run.Doctor’s roleMeanwhile, the acting Crime Chief has explained that, in relation to the doctor’s alleged role in this matter, the law is currently being researched in an effort to determine what charges, if any, can be laid against him.Apprehended: Delon “Demon” Morgan“This is the first time that we would have been confronted with a situation of this nature, so the law is being researched at the moment and the file is being prepared at the moment to be sent for legal advice. And so all of that would be expound upon, and at some stage the report will be sent to the Medical Council of Guyana on the doctor’s conduct,” Kingston told this publication.The Crime Chief (ag) noted that, at some stage of the investigative process, law enforcement officials will engage the Medical Council of Guyana to make that body aware of what the Police have uncovered during their probe into this incident.“…but at the moment, we are looking at a criminal investigation. The file is being prepared for legal advice. That is why they have legal advisors, so they can advise us on the way forward,” he explained.Two masked gunmen pounced on Stoll and his driver as Stoll was about to enter the El Dorado Trading to conduct business on October 14. Stoll was shot, but managed to return fire at the gunmen. He shot one of the gunmen twice. His driver and a security guard at El Dorado Trading were also shot.Stoll, also called “Mow”, hailed from Charity, Essequibo Coast, Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam), but resided in Bel Air Park, Georgetown.Still on the run: Lennox EstwicReports are that the businessman had arrived at the establishment at about 10:20h on that fateful October 14, and as he was about to exit the car, two gunmen who arrived in a white car opened fire on him and his driver, Clayton Powley.A review of closed circuit television (CCTV) footage showed that Stoll was sitting in the front passenger seat of motorcar PPP 6727, being driven by Powley. A white Toyota motorcar with tinted windows, which had appeared to be trailing Stoll’s vehicle, also stopped across the road from the business place seconds later. Stoll had earlier visited a business place on Sheriff Street, from whence he had collected an undisclosed sum of cash.Two gunmen, donning handkerchiefs to conceal their faces, jumped out of the car that had stopped behind PPP 6727 and rushed towards Stoll’s car. One gunman opened the door at the driver’s side and a scuffle began between him and Powley, who soon exited the vehicle to better defend himself. Powley received a gunshot wound to his arm in the process, while his assailant rushed back to the waiting white Toyota motorcar.The other gunman rushed to the front seat passenger door and opened it before attempting to snatch something from Stoll. The businessman, who also appeared to have been putting up a fight from inside of the vehicle, was shot to his stomach. His shooter was unable to grab anything from the car. As he attempted to run away, the injured Stoll returned fire with his handgun. The CCTV footage showed that the gunman was shot twice by Stoll. He stumbled both times before escaping in the awaiting motorcar, which sped away.The CCTV footage showed Stoll clutching his stomach as he fell to the ground. Security personnel attached to El Dorado Trading, along with residents of the neighbourhood, rushed to Stoll and Powley’s aid. They managed to transport the injured men to the Georgetown Public Hospital for emergency treatment. However, Stoll succumbed at the hospital.Initially, it was believed that one of the gunmen was Guyana Defence Force member 18-year-old Olijah Chesney, who was found dead in the Tucville Squatting Area of Georgetown with two gunshot wounds. However, the Police have since said that Chesney was not involved in the robbery.Stoll was laid to rest earlier this week at his home village, Charity, Essequibo Coast.Laws governing doctorsChairman of the Medical Council of Guyana, Dr Navindranauth Rambaran, has recently said it would be premature to pronounce on the fate of the doctor at this time, as Police investigations are still underway; but another senior medical practitioner employed by the Public Health Ministry told this publication that the Guyana Medical Practitioner’s Act does not have a direct rule stating that a doctor must report such incidents to the Police.He, however, noted that the Police may be looking at the law governing the criminal act of accessory to the offence.last_img read more

Light-rail project funds approved

first_imgThe commission also approved funding for a project to improve safety at railway grade crossings along the Metrolink system at Van Nuys Boulevard and Buena Vista/Vanowen streets. The overall project cost is about $14 million, most of which has already been funded from several state, local and federal sources; Wednesday’s commission action provided about $600,000 toward that overall funding. The CTC allocated nearly half of the $640 million for the first phase of the Exposition Line, 8.5 miles from the existing Metro Rail station at Seventh Street/Metro Center. The line will head south toward the University of Southern California, then along Exposition Boulevard and end at Washington/National in Culver City. Construction on the first phase started last year and is scheduled for completion in 2010. The second phase, still in the planning stages, will connect Culver City to the beach in Santa Monica. SACRAMENTO – Los Angeles commuters got some long-sought relief Wednesday as the California Transportation Commission greenlighted a costly light-rail project to aid Westside commuters but provided only slight aid to the San Fernando Valley. The funding comes after months of being stalled amid a legislative budget deadlock but now means that several projects can move forward, including $315 million for the Exposition light-rail line project. “(This) ensures continued progress without interruption in building the Expo light-rail line to Culver City and ultimately to Santa Monica,” said the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors chairman, Zev Yaroslavsky, in a written statement. “It hastens the day we can finish the project and bring mass rapid transit and a measure of genuine traffic relief to the people of West Los Angeles.” While there had been concern that cuts in transportation funds by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger would jeopardize some of the projects, the commission determined that funds were available and approved the money unanimously with no debate. “It’s a very important day for Los Angeles,” said Assemblyman Mike Feuer, D-West Hollywood, who chairs the budget subcommittee on transportation. “This is absolutely fundamental to the future of not only this line, but public transit in Los Angeles. The Exposition Line is a foundation for what can be, to alleviate congestion throughout our region.” Metro had already begun construction on the first phase, so failing to win approval for the last state funding piece would have sent agency officials scrambling for other sources. “I think Metro would have moved to delay other projects, because this project is under construction,” said David Yale, deputy executive officer with Metro. He said the Metro board has a list of projects it wants to pursue but has not allocated funding because it was waiting for state action on the Expo Line. Other Los Angeles projects approved by the commission included widening the off-ramp from the 105 Freeway onto Sepulveda Boulevard near Los Angeles International Airport. Officials say traffic on that off-ramp often backs up onto the freeway during busy times, causing crashes and additional freeway congestion. The project costs $7.6 million. harrison.sheppard @dailynews.com (916) 446-6723160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

German Bundesliga: Gladbach out to consolidate top spot as Bayern are away to Dusseldorf

first_imgGladbach hold a four points lead at the top of the Bundesliga. (PHOTO/Courtesy)Borrusia Monchengladbach is currently enjoying their best start to a Bundesliga season in eternity.Marco Rose’s side sits comfortably at the top of the standings with 25 points, four ahead of second-placed RB Leipzig.Their 3-1 win at home to Werder Bremen indicated that they do not intend to slow down any time soon.On Saturday afternoon, they take on Union Berlin in a fixture that they are expected to pick three other points from.The fact that they have been brilliant since the season started is down to the fact that they are performing at both ends of the pitch.Gladbach’s defece has conceded the least goals in the division (11) while they have also scored an impressive 24 goals at the other end.Marcus Thuram has won most of the plaudits for his exploits upfront and with five goals already registered to his name, the French forward will be yarning for more along with partner Alessan Plea who has managed four.However, Gladbach has been hit with injury issues going into the game as they could be without up to seven first-team players including the suspended Rami Bensabaini who was sent off in the win against Bremen.For Union Berlin, they have started life in the top flight fairly ok as they sit 11th on the 18-team log.They have also been in reasonably good form in the past couple of weeks as they have won all of their last three games in competitions including both of their last two in the League.A 1-0 win over Hertha in the Berlin Derby was followed up with a 3-2 victory at Mainz in the last game and they will be motivated to inflict a third season loss on Gladbach.This will be the first meeting between the two sides as Union only attained Bundesliga status this year.The Bundesliga match-day 12 will kick-off on Friday with Borussia Dortmund at home to Paderborn.Dortmund has had to endure a reasonably tough start to the 2019/20 campaign and start the weekend in 6th, six points off the pace.They went into the international break on the back of a heavy 4-0 loss against Bayern Munich, their second defeat of the season.Having won just five games since the season started, Lucien Favre will feel obligated to register another victory on Friday and anything less than three points will not be welcome by the Dortmund faithful.For Paderborn, they are hands-down the worst side in the division.After 11 games, they sit bottom of the pile with only four points. Their tally so far has been accumulated from a draw away to Wolfsburg and a 2-0 victory at home to Dusseldorf.Paderborn is steering in the eyes of relegation and a trip to the Signa Induna Park is not one they would welcome at this point of the season.Last season, Paderborn lost heavily to Dortmund in their two games. They lost 7-1 in the reverse fixture before going down 6-1 in the return leg.For defending champions Bayern, they will also be in action on Saturday when they take on Dusseldorf away from home.Yet to find a permanent replacement, the Bavarians will still be under the guidance of Hans Dieter-Flick who masterminded the 4-0 victory over Dortmund before the international break.Bayern will be favourites for the game despite missing defenders Nicklas Sula, Jerome Boateng and Lucas Hernandez.However, they need to be cautious of a Dusseldorf side that has lost only one of their last five competitive fixtures and held them to a 3-3 draw in one of their two meetings last season.The other fixtures to watch out for will be Leverkusen at home to Freiburg, Frankfurt hosting Wolfsburg and Koln’s visit to Leipzig.All the Bundesliga fxtures this weekendFriday, 22-11-2019-Dortmund vs Paderborn @10:30pmSaturday, 23-11-2019-Leverkusen vs Freiburg @5:30pm-Frankfurt vs Wolfsburg  @5:30pm-Bremen vs Schalke 04  @5:30pm-Dusseldorf vs Bayern  @5:30pm-Union Berlin vs Gladbach  @5:30pm-Leipzig vs Koln  @8:30pmSunday, 24-11-2019-Augsburg vs Hertha Berlin @5:30pm-Hoffenheim vs Mainz @8pmComments Tags: Bayern MunichBorussia DortmundBorussia MonchengladbachBundesligaFortuna DusseldorfPaderbornUnion Berlinlast_img read more
