How Spurs could line-up vs Colchester with wonderkid Troy Parrott to start

first_imgTROY PARROTT is in line to make his first-team debut for Tottenham when the Premier League giants head to Colchester.The North London club will be out to make amends for their controversial defeat to Leicester when travelling to Essex on Saturday.2Despite the need for a morale boost, a number of first-team stars are set to be rested.Son Heung-min, Tanguy Ndombele, Harry Kane and Toby Alderweireld should sit out the Carabao Cup game with the latter two having hardly missed a minute of the campaign so far.That opens the way for an entirely different defence from the one that lost on Saturday.Serge Aurier, Jan Vertonghen and Danny Rose are set to be rotated out with Eric Dier dropped into central defence.They will protect Paulo Gazzaniga, deputising for Hugo Lloris again after the Frenchman was absent last time out while his wife gave birth.In midfield, academy product Oliver Skipp is in the mix for a start after two cameos off the bench against Aston Villa and Manchester City.One star man desperately in need of form is Christian Eriksen and the Dane is likely to get a chance from the off at JobServe Community Stadium.

Kearney can’t explain Warriors meltdown

first_imgThe 46-12 loss to the Raiders on Friday left Kearney feeling angrier than he could remember.His team trailing 30-0 at halftime, the coach was captured by television cameras delivering a dressing down to his players in the shed which involved furiously kicking a stray towel. It would have hit Peta Hiku in the head if the centre hadn’t taken evasive action.Kearney was angry that after a run of six gritty showings, in which no game was decided by more than four points, his side failed to front in their first game in Auckland for a month.”We had worked so hard over the last six weeks too and we endured a fair bit along the way,” Kearney said.”Four of those games were away from home and we created some really good habits.”That’s what I was pissed off about. I thought the first half, we got bullied off the park. That’s why I was pretty animated.”Let me put it this way, I can’t remember the last time I was that angry.”Kearney said he didn’t see the performance coming, believing the players had come to terms with last week’s contentious two-point loss to Parramatta which was dominated by the fallout from the game’s poor officiating.This time there were no excuses; the in-form Raiders performed all of the basics better than the 12th-placed Warriors on a wet evening.The hosts at least improved in the second spell, manufacturing a brace of tries to rookie replacement five-eighth Chanel Harris-Tavita, who Kearney said lacked support from more experienced teammates.Kearney couldn’t shed light on injuries that forced off five-eighth Kodi Nikorima (ankle) and hooker Karl Lawton (shoulder).”I wasn’t in the mood to check out how they were feeling,” he said.The Warriors will need to beat Manly next Friday if they are to avoid an outright club record of seven straight losses at Mt Smart Stadium.last_img read more

Gibson-McCook Relays Watch | Edwin Allen vs the clock

first_imgTHE Girls Class One 4x100m – a championships event is slated for 5:55 p.m. on Saturday at the Gibson – McCook Relays and when the teams line up for this event, Edwin Allen will be eyeing the record of 44.48 seconds, set two years ago. That team included the likes of Christania Williams, Monique Spencer, Saquine Cameron and Claudette Allen. This time around they have a Class One team, which is just as strong and the clock should be their only competition here. They have already shown their speed this season with little or no competition. At the Central Hurdles and Relay meet at GC Foster College of Physical Education and Sport, they clocked a record 45.08 seconds. The quartet of Patrice Moody, Shellece Clarke, Kamoy Farquharson and Kasheika Cameron showed their true might at the Milo Western Relays, storming to 44.87 seconds despite some hitches. BETTER EFFORT With a better effort in their exchanges they could erased their old mark and it will be interesting to see if the likes of Holmwood, St Jago and company will give them enough competition to push them into a super time. Still, whether or not that competition arrives from their rivals, this Edwin Allen team certainly packs the power to lower that record on their own. Top 3 Prediction 1. Edwin Allen 2. Holmwood 3.St Jagolast_img read more

Actor records emotional tales

first_imgTOPANGA – Armed with his video camera, William Preston Bowling has stood on the sidelines of countless public meetings over the past year, recording the angry, sometimes boring, but always controversial debate over the Santa Susana Field Lab. Using emotional interviews of cancer survivors and footage of flames devouring the old Rocketdyne lab buildings during a wildfire last September, the Topanga resident, real estate agent and aspiring documentary filmmaker has tried to stir up debate over the massive cleanup at the former nuclear research and rocket engine testing facility. His first short film – “H2oh No!” – introduced viewers to the Santa Susana Field Lab in the hills between Chatsworth and Simi Valley, and recounted recent findings of radioactive tritium in the groundwater at the lab. Tonight, he’s screening his second 10-minute film, “Afterburner: The Fire at Rocketdyne,” based on neighbors’ concerns that the Topanga Fire released contamination into the air as buildings, soil and vegetation burned. Typing the words “nuclear” and “cancer” in an Internet search engine, he came across a site that mentioned Topanga. “I said, Wait a minute; I live in Topanga.” He read about the Santa Susana Field Lab and the partial nuclear meltdown that took place there in 1959. Attorneys investigating the site for a lawsuit estimated the meltdown released 260 times the amount of radiation that escaped during the incident at Three Mile Island near Middletown, Pa., in March 1979. And the cleanup continues today. “I couldn’t believe this existed. I thought, oh, my God, I’ve driven by this place. I’ve seen the sign at Woolsey Canyon,” Bowling recalled. Shocked that he and most of his neighbors in Topanga Canyon had never heard about the meltdown 11 miles away, Bowling decided to begin filming the public meetings. Soon he was a familiar face among the lab watchdogs, and women whose husbands worked at the lab and who died of cancer told their stories to his camera. A one-man operation, Bowling hopes to turn his short films into a full-length feature documentary. “I’m an out-of-work actor and, of course, every actor wants to direct. This is the only way I can do it on my own without a million-dollar budget.” Last summer, Bowling’s piece was screened at the Topanga Film Festival, one of 17 films chosen from 100 submissions. Film festival founder and director Urs Baur said reaction to Bowling’s film was mixed. Some criticized his naive approach to filmmaking – the short movies offer more questions than answers – but others were moved by the story of a radioactive, contaminated site in their backyard. “We thought the film had merit for several reasons,” Baur said. “Beyond the importance of making people aware of Rocketdyne, we are interested in people, like Bill Bowling, that are simply moved by something, pick up a camera and fearlessly and single-handedly pursue a story and make a film.” Kerry Cavanaugh, (818) 713-3746 kerry.cavanaugh@dailynews.com IF YOU GO: “Afterburner” will be screened at 7:30 tonight at Topanga Community House, 1440 N.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card The Boeing Co., which owns the lab, has said there was little risk from burning vegetation, and air quality tests during the fire showed no sign of contaminants. Spokeswoman Inger Hodgson said company officials haven’t seen the films, but are committed to answering people’s questions and concerns about the ongoing environmental investigation at the site. Bowling said his goal is to use film to get people interested in the field lab cleanup. “I stumbled across this and then started digging and digging in deeper. I don’t think 25 percent of the people living around the lab know about it. Once people know, they can make their own decisions, but a lot of people don’t know.” Bowling, 37, said he learned about the field lab while researching his grandfather, who was a downwinder exposed to radiation from nuclear testing at the Nevada Test Site in the 1950s and 1960s. last_img read more

PICTURE SPECIAL: 75TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS FOR FINN VALLEY COLLEGE

first_imgIn the long and illustrious 75 year history of Finn Valley College/Stranorlar Vocational School, there surely can not have been many nights to have topped this one.The Villa Rose Hotel was the fabulous venue for the crowning night of a year of celebrations at the weekend.Three hundred guests, ranging in age from some of the very first students to have entered the school in 1940 right up until those who have just left, gathered firstly for a champagne reception in the foyer to the sounds of past pupil Rodney Deery. Guests browsed an extensive photo collection before making their way into the superbly adorned function room decked out in the school colours.During and after the exceptional meal was punctuated with spot prizes galore, sponsored by the many businesses and friends of the school, as well as speeches from past principals Brian Mc Dermott and Frank Dooley as well as the current incumbent Alan Thompson.Entertainment on the night was provided by the very talented Finn Valley College students Chloe Friel and Chloe Irwin who danced so elegantly, extremely popular Cufflinks band, who didn’t disappoint judging by the amount of dancers on the floor all night. Those who wanted to take a break from dancing could make their way out to the photo booth for some more high jinks and captured memories of a great night out.The atmosphere of the night served to illustrate the fondness that all attending hold for the school. The organising committee led by Ms Ashlean Mc Geehan, ably assisted by Ms Kathleen Boland and the Diamond Committee in the school are all to be thanked for marking the occasion so well. They would all like to thank those who supported the night in any way. The school will, no doubt, continue to play a central role in the Finn Valley Community for many years to come, with the next stop being the centenary!

SPORTS NOTICE: LETTERKENNY GOLF CLUB LAUNCH ‘GOLF AWARENESS DAY’ THIS FRIDAY

first_imgLETTERKENNY GOLF CLUB—GOLF AWARENESS DAYAre you thinking of playing golf? Would you like to see and hear what it’s all about first? Then come along to the Letterkenny Golf Club “Golf Awareness Day” at Letterkenny Shopping Centre on this coming Friday, 17th April.Where you can chat to our club GUI Professional Seamus Clinton, Captain Gerard Duffy, Lady Captain Margo Birmingham, club officers and regular club members on the golfing and social aspects of the biggest growing sport over the past ten years. Also in attendance will be Rory Leonard, GUI Golf Development Officer, who is behind the 2015 Golf Initiative in Ireland.The Awareness Day is open to people of all ages, men, ladies and kids. There will be a practice net available to try a few shots, [clubs included], and a “putting green” to try your skills. There will also be “fun” competitions for driving and putting with prizes galore. Club Captain Gerard Duffy explains, “we had already taken the initiative four years ago to take golf to the kids. We visited schools, youth clubs etc., spoke to the different age groups, boys and girls, and our junior membership in Letterkenny Golf Club grew from twenty kids to one hundred and seventy five! There is nothing juvenile about commitment to youth at Letterkenny Golf Club” says Gerard. “Some golf clubs do not welcome junior members at all and others just tolerate them but Letterkenny Golf Club is different. We want the Juniors, they are the future of our club.That is why we are now taking golf to the “older” age group, 25-50year olds, those who are ready to try a sport less strenuous than most but yet maintain or broaden their social environment”So, if you’re that person who is looking for something new or different to keep you in good health or to occupy your spare time or weekends, call in and see us at Letterkenny Shopping Centre on Friday.
