first_imgThe PNGMMNA has decided that due to lack of nominations and the high costs facility hire, the second season will be postponed until 2017 where the season will be redeveloped to include a greater number of teams and the season and be played over a longer period.Since the nominations for season two competitions was opened in early July with the initiative of expanding the competition, the association could not register the required number of teams to participate until the closure of registrations on August 3.President of the PNGMMNA Adam Parker thanked the nominated teams for their interests and urge them to participate in the upcoming trials which will be held later this month for PNG first International Mixed and Men’s representative teams.“Apologies to those teams who were nominated for the season two challenge, however, due to the fact that we are unable to continue there will be trials for the selection of PNG Mixed Men’s Netabll representative team coming up,” Adam said.“We hope to make the 2017 season bigger, better and longer in competition wise.”If you are interested to take part in the trials, please contact PNGMMNA via email at pngmmna@gmail.com .Player registration will be conducted at the first trial date.last_img read more


first_imgLaLiga Santander* Data updated as of May 2, 2020 Betis tries to look cautiously at the future of its squad for next summer. He does not yet know the outcome of the season or even if the present championship can be resumed, but the foreseeable economic difficulties to which he must adhere drive a reality: there will be exit movements despite the initial intention being to prevent the main figures from leaving. One of the names that are on the table of unknowns is that of Aissa Mandi, who ends her contract in 2021 and whose renewal stalled with the break. Newcastle, which is targeting numerous tricks as targets for next summer (including the Betic Fekir) would also be in the footsteps of the Algerian. This is reflected in the portal footalgerien.com, which stresses that the player himself would like a change of scenery after four campaigns in LaLiga.Mandi insisted so far on his commitment to fulfill his current contract and his satisfaction is full with the Verdiblanco team and his life in the city of Seville. The edges regarding its renewal, however, can motivate a different reality when the present championship closes, especially if in Heliópolis they receive offers that can satisfy both the footballer and the entity in the economic framework. The certainty that there will be changes in the defense does seem unquestionable despite the few movements that there will be in the summer market. Rubi used Mandi as a regular piece in his schemes, although his absence in the clash against Real Madrid changed that trend. It was his first substitution since the second day of this League and after being also essential for Quique Setién for two seasons. With Bartra, Sidnei and Feddal also as tricks behind, Betis will not hesitate to listen to offers if they really reach Heliopolis.last_img read more

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREPettersson scores another winner, Canucks beat Kings After much debate Friday, the Los Angeles City Council came up with a novel plan for making the embarrassing incident of a planner’s inappropriate call go away. They coerced a developer into paying out an additional $20,000 to shut up the complainers. Surely it was no surprise to developer Gary Schaffel or anyone who wants to build things in Los Angeles. Developers are used to paying out to get what they want in this city. The payout came after a city planner accidentally left a voice message with a tenant and not with Schaffel that his condo project in Valley Village would get city approval “no matter what.” The renters displaced by the redevelopment have been fighting the project and were rightly incensed to hear that there seemed to be collusion between City Hall and the developer. The solution of the council won’t fix anything, but it simply throws money at the problem in the hope that it goes away. There’s one thing the public can be thankful for: At least they weren’t using our money this time.last_img read more


first_imgAn opportunistic second-half brace from Shane Duggan catapulted Cork City back into joint-second in the Airtricity League First Division table after they ended Finn Harps’ two-game winning streak in Ballybofey last night.The result comes as a big blow for Harps after their recent revival which would’ve really ignited with any sort of a result against the Turner’s Cross outfit. Instead, the margin on the teams above them is slightly extended once more, following the unravelling of Friday night’s results.Aaron McElwee and Paddy McLaughlin both returned to the Harps line-up, having missed out on last week’s game due to suspension, while Ciaran Coll got the nod ahead of Gareth Harkin to start at left-back. The home side would’ve felt content going in at the break all-square after seeing their opponents pass up a number of golden opportunities, none more so than a penalty awarded on eighteen minutes.Cork striker Vinny Sullivan powered his way into the box and after being put off balance from Paddy McLaughlin, tumbled into the onrushing Ciaran Gallagher, who picked up the yellow card, strangely, instead of his team-mate.Graham Cummins then stepped up and hammered the spot-kick off Gallagher’s left-hand post, as Harps were let off the hook.Moments beforehand and Cork nearly had another penalty after Keith Cowan upended Cummins right on the edge of the area, with the Harps defender walking away scot-free and Gallagher saving the subsequent free-kick from Davin O’Neill. The visitors, without a defeat from any of their eight away games to date, continued to test their hosts, with Mark Forker perfectly positioned to steer a Stephen Mulcahy header off the line, following a teasing corner from Gearóid Morrissey.Harps, despite playing some wonderfully composed football in the first half, scarcely tested Mark McNulty, as Kevin McHugh and Blaine Curtis worried the Cork back-four but never frightened them.The home side’s best chance of an opener came on thirteen minutes when McHugh bust a gut to get to the byline before pulling square for Curtis, who was denied by the backtracking McNulty just as the striker was about to pull the trigger.The Leesider’s looked like they might finally grab the breakthrough two minutes before the break when Sullivan robbed Aaron O’Hagan before rounding Ciaran Gallagher. And despite been forced wide, Sullivan picked out O’Neill, who somehow managed to blaze wide from six yards out, with the goal at his mercy.Curtis, industrious and sharp throughout, twice went close in the early stages of the second half, the first a wonderfully improvised flick from a Brolly cross and the second, a fifteen yard effort that McNulty collected, following a beautifully threaded-ball from Aaron McElwee. The away side, however, nudged ahead just after the hour mark when Shane Duggan tucked home after a nice cutback from Cummins, who managed to shrug off the attentions of the previously impenetrable Keith Cowan. Duggan then bagged his and his side’s second goal of the night after Paddy McLaughlin gifted the visitor’s possession in the middle of the park. The stylish midfielder galloped onto the loose ball and after Cowan failed with an attempted block, Duggan kept his composure to curl home from twenty yards past Gallagher.Cummins might have made it three for the away side in the dying stages but was hauled down by Cowan on the edge of the area, an incident the Harps defender somehow managed to escape with just a yellow card.Finn Harps: Ciaran Gallagher; Paddy McLaughlin, Keith Cowan, Aaron O’Hagan, Ciaran Coll; Mark Forker, Aaron McElwee, Tommy Bonnar, Marc Brolly; Blaine Curtis, Kevin McHugh.

first_imgDonegal GAA All Star Kevin Cassidy plans to kick start his new own Gaeltacht Irish summer college – with top-level coaching skills from Ireland’s finest athletes.The 30-year-old Gaoth Dobhair teacher told donegaldaily.com that it has been a very busy time but he is looking forward to the first year of Coláiste Chú Chulainn.Based in Derrybeg, the Irish Summer College is set to offer a special emphasis on GAA sports as well as cultural and language activities when it opens its doors in July. The former Donegal captain told us: “We finally secured premises and of course we had to have vetting in place and now with the brochures ready it has been a busy time for myself and Hugh McGinley.“We have top athletes signed up to come to the college but I don’t want to give any names away just yet. They’re from all over and we know that parents are paying a lot of money to send their kids to a course so we really want to give them as much as possible.”The father-of –two said he wanted to introduce a special sporting aspect to the course because so many kids are involved in clubs and in all kinds of sports.“Kids can get pulled in all directions when it comes to their clubs, training, playing and exams. We want to show them how they can manage their study time with their sport, provide nutritional information for them and show them that sport can be a release from study time and can have a positive impact on their time as well. “We have included aspects of sports psychology that will benefit kids doing their Junior or Senior certificate,” said Kevin.He acknowleged that the cost of summer colleges was hard for parents and said he hopes to be able to offer scholarships to students through their GAA clubs.Donegal County Council has opened its Gaeltacht Scholarship Scheme for 2012 and applications  must be returned by Friday March 23rd.For further information about Coláiste Chú Chulainn go to its websitewww.chuchulainn.com or email: info@chuchulainn.com.© 2012 donegaldaily.com, all Rights Reserved The copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailyGAA STAR CASSIDY LAUNCHES GAELTACHT SUMMER COLLEGE was last modified: February 27th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:REVEALED: GAA STAR CASSIDY LAUNCHES GAELTACHT SUMMER COLLEGElast_img read more
