JC drub Clan Carthy

first_imgBilled as champions versus football minnows, title holders Jamaica College (JC) showed no mercy with Clan Carthy High, as they controlled, and bossed the game from start to finish, and strode to an easy 4-0 win in their ISSA/FLOW Manning Cup match, at the Jamaica College football field on Old Hope Road, yesterday.Leading forward Ronaldo Brown stepped up with a brace in the 24th and 86th minutes.Brown’s double puts him at three, so far, and he looks set to go past 20 for the season.Prior to that, Khori Edmond sent JC ahead in the 22nd minute. Captain Allando Brown proved his reliability and versatility as a centre back to head home their third goal in the 27th minute.”It is an amazing feeling to score two goals today,” Brown said, while noting that he idolises Junior Flemmings, who led JC’s scoring charge last season.”I idolise Flemmings, and coach has called on me to step up and get goals like he did for our school. We are a championship team, and I am trying to build my legacy without being under pressure of living up to his name,” (Flemmings’) Brown assured.The start of the game was delayed for close to an hour due to rain, but the home still went at their rivals from the first whistle.Coach Miguel Coley said: “We were happy that we could win the game with a clean sheet. The killer instinct is not there yet, but that’s something that we have to instil. When you get teams like this, you want as many goals as possible; 10 if possible,” he told The Gleaner.”Going forward, we are looking better and better, and that will be good for us,” he continued, adding “we have a good team, just that the killer instinct needs to be there.”Meanwhile, Clan Carthy coach Mallawe Blake said his players didn’t follow instructions.”We had chalkboard work at school and we knew that we couldn’t give JC too much space to play but the game just went away from us.”We just have to regroup and face St Catherine at home on Friday,” he assessed.YESTERDAY’S RESULTSGroup AJamaica College 4, Clan Carthy 0Calabar 4, Tivoli 0Group DHoly Trinity 1, Charlie Smith 2St Mary’s College 3, Penwood 1Group EWolmer’s 2, Bridgeport 0St Jago 8, Kingston High 1Group GKingston College 6 Campion 0Camperdown 2, JosÈ MartÌ 0TODAY’S GAMESPapine vs DunoonHydel vs CumberlandGreater Portmore vs Haile SelassieKingston Technical vs ElthamInnswood vs St George’s CollegeArdenne vs Denham TownAscot vs Spanish TownJonathan Grant vs ExcelsiorNorman Manley vs Vauxhalllast_img read more

MCBREARTY ACCUSES O’DOMHNAILL OF TRYING TO INSTILL FEAR IN COMMUNITY OVER TEACHING POSTS

first_imgCllr Frank McBrearty has accused Fianna Fáil Senator Brian O’Domhnaill of attempt to instill fear in Donegal communities by claiming dozens of teaching posts are to be slashed across Donegal.The Raphoe county councillor said the claims by Senator O’Domhnaill are complete untrue and outrageous.“The claim by Senator O’Domhnaill that all 101 Donegal schools face staff losses and larger classes is completely untrue. The Labour Party were not able to shield the school sector entirely from budget cutbacks, but the standard pupil-teacher ratio in schools was protected, ensuring that most Donegal schools will have neither staff losses nor larger classes. “Senator O’Domhnaill also claims that nine primary schools in Donegal will lose a teacher this September, amounting to at least 30 teachers.“Again, he knows that this is a complete exaggeration, with the vast majority of those schools set to lose one teacher each – while this will obviously be difficult for the schools involved, their challenge is not made any easier by this type of scare-mongering.“Cllr McBrearty said the Fianna Fail Senator had a ‘nerve’ to highlight the difficulties faced by St Eunan’s in Raphoe.“He should be able to remember that it was his Fianna Fáil that removed two teachers from this school in the December 2010 budget, and it is that cut which is ultimately leading to their loss of an administrative principal. “It is true that they have lost one concessionary post as a result of the last budget, but I will be continuing to lobby Minister Quinn to try and have this post retained,” he said.And Cllr McBrearty added “Let’s not forget what he said about the IMF during the BY ELECTION and what happened 24 hours later when we lost our SOVEREIGNTY.“Senator O’Domhnaill should remember that the challenges faced by Donegal schools can all be traced back to the tragic mismanagement of our country by Fianna Fáil” MCBREARTY ACCUSES O’DOMHNAILL OF TRYING TO INSTILL FEAR IN COMMUNITY OVER TEACHING POSTS was last modified: March 8th, 2012 by StephenShare 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:Cllr Frank McBreartySenator Brian O’Domhnailllast_img read more
