Tivoli Gardens FC’s resurgence continued under the technical leadership of Glendon ‘Admiral’ Bailey when they edged Harbour View FC 2-1 in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) football match at Edward Seaga Sports Complex yesterday. Jamaica College schoolboy star Donovan Dawkins opened the scoring for Tivoli in the second minute, and defender Barrington Pryce got the winning goal in the 81st minute. Jorginho James netted for the losers in the 27th minute. Tivoli started with more purpose as they ran at the visitors. The home side went ahead early when the 18-year-old Dawkins scored his first goal for the club. However, Harbour View picked up the pace and equalised courtesy of James in the first half. On the resumption, Tivoli continued their spirited play, but were let down by wasteful shooting from former Reggae Boy Jermaine ‘Teddy’ Johnson, who missed three sitters. Not to be denied, however, they went ahead for good when Pryce climbed high and headed a right-side free kick taken by Junior Flemmings past goalkeeper Mark Bryan. Tivoli’s assistant coach, Damion Gordon, was pleased with the overall performance of his team. “I’m very excited about the win today. It is our second since ‘Admiral’ returned. We dominated the game and should have won by a bigger margin,” Gordon told The Gleaner. Gordon, a former Tivoli defender and captain, spoke highly about Bailey’s influence on the team since he (Bailey) returned last month and took over as technical director. “He (Bailey) knows the club, as he spent many years here and won two Premier League titles, so it was a good move,” the assistant coach said. Flemmings, who is Tivoli’s leading scorer on eight goals and who failed to get on the scoresheet despite working hard, also praised Bailey for his leadership. “Well, first and foremost, it was a crucial win for us. The coach (Bailey) made the difference. He has been working on some things in training, and we followed his instruction and won the game,” Flemmings said. On the other hand, Harbour View’s coach, Ludlow Bernard, was disappointed that his team came out losers. “It was a disappointing loss as we wanted to move into the top four. The windy conditions made it difficult for us. However, it was a spirited performance from Tivoli. We will have to move on from this defeat,” Bernard reasoned. Tivoli moved to 26 points, but remained in 10th position, just above the drop zone, while Harbour View stayed in fifth position on 33 points.

The Fort St. John Senior Flyers and the Spirit River Rangers have never been shy to show their dislike for one another and that rang true once again tonight. Game four at the North Peace Arena between the two clubs was a chippy affair, one that the Flyers were victorious in 5-3 as they once again evened up the best of seven set at two games a piece.The Flyers came out strong with a solid opening 20 minutes as they took a 2-0 lead but seemed to lose their edge in the second as sloppy play plagued them throughout. Head coach Gerard Dicaire said while it wasn’t a pretty middle frame, a late goal helped redeem the team as they restored their two goal leading heading into the third.“The second period wasn’t great for us,” he admitted. “We got away from chipping the pucks in and getting it in deep and forechecking and cycling them. We snuck that one to go up 3-1 with a minute left so I think we handled it fairly well.”- Advertisement -Making a big impact on the game was Adam Horst as he was back in the lineup after returning from a Crashed Ice event in Northern Ireland. Dicaire said it was great having him back with the club, especially as he contributed with two goals on the night.“You always welcome with open arms when Horsty comes back in,” he said. “He’s in shape, he goes and does his Crashed Ice so you know he’s not hurting, you know he’s not going to be slow out there. Him and Robbie [Sidhu] and Shippy [Jeff Shipton] were playing together before he left so there was a little bit of chemistry and he would also bounce in between [Shawn] Holliday and [Dylan] Wellard so it gives us that much more depth which you need in playoffs.”The game was full of hits, as well as extra curricular activity after the whistle especially in the third period. While the Rangers tried to physically intimidate the Flyers, big defenceman Tyler Loney was there to step in and restore order when needed.Advertisement “I think they’re just a bunch of sore losers to be honest with you,” Dicaire said bluntly. “They don’t like losing; nobody does but they get extra pouty when they lose and they aren’t use to it. They’re not use to playing through adversity. They’re use to just dominating people and people being scared of them. When Lones [Tyler Loney] is in the lineup our team grows six inches and he helps everything out.”Scoring in order for the Flyers were Adam Horst, Kyle Leahy, Adam Horst, Jeff Fast, and Joey Massingham.Game five of the series goes Thursday night in Spirit River, and the teams will do up game six the following night in Fort St. John at the North Peace Arena at 8:30. read more

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The failure of a circuit breaker at BC Hydro’s Fort St. John substation was what led to over 16,000 North Peace residents being put in the dark yesterday.The outage happened at around 1:30 yesterday afternoon, and caused a power outage in Fort St. John, Taylor, Charlie Lake, Montney, and as far away as Rose Prairie and Goodlow.BC Hydro spokesperson Bob Gammer says that the outage occurred when a circuit breaker at the substation was tripped. The tripped breaker caused protective equipment to engage, opening the circuit to a transformer and causing the lights to go out. Though there are other transformers at the substation, one that would have been able to divert the load was undergoing maintenance and not in service. After arriving, Hydro crews were able to activate another circuit breaker to re-energize the protected transformer and bring the grid back online after three hours and ten minutes.- Advertisement -As for what caused the circuit breaker to trip in the first place, Gammer says that crews haven’t discovered the cause, but did say that there was leaking oil discovered near the tripped breaker. He added that the circumstances of yesterday outage, while an unusual occurrence do happen, and that Hydro should be able to find out what caused the breaker to trip in the near future. read more
1 Tottenham defender Kyle Naughton is set to miss Wednesday’s League Cup semi-final clash with boyhood club Sheffield United as a £5million move to Swansea edges closer.The 26-year-old full-back came through the ranks at Bramall Lane, making 50 appearances for the Blades before moving to north London in 2009.Naughton arrived at White Hart Lane at the same time as Kyle Walker, although has struggled to make the same impact as the England right-back.He is now understood to be closing in on a move to Swansea, with a fee having been agreed with the south Wales club.Spurs head coach Mauricio Pochettino was coy about Naughton’s future on Tuesday – “I can’t tell you any news or any comment,” he said – but suggested that his exit would be the exception rather than the rule.Paulinho, Aaron Lennon and Roberto Soldado are amongst those heavily linked with moves away, with the latter said to be interesting Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen.Soldado has struggled for goals and form since arriving for £26million in the summer of 2013, although Pochettino insists he has no intention of selling the misfiring striker, nor anyone else.“I am happy with him,” he said. “I am the same as before. All players are in my plans and [there is not] any news.“I expect all players to be here because we have ahead a lot of games.“We are still in four competitions and I think that we need a strong squad to take on all games that we have in the future.”Pushed to confirm Soldado was not for sale, Pochettino retorted: “Any player is [not] for sale. Any player.“We want to keep all players because we need all players, a strong squad.“No more comment about that because I repeat always the same: I am happy with the squad.”The transfer talk distracted from what was supposed to be a press conference previewing Wednesday’s clash against Sheffield United.The third-tier Blades approach the match as underdogs, but should not be taken lightly given they have beaten five Premier League side since the start of 2014.“We know that Sheffield is a very good team,” Pochettino said.“In this type of competition, the Capital One Cup, it is not important the level, whether you play in Premier League or League One.“When it is decided over one or two games, it is important to be focused and we need to show respect for Sheffield United.“When we watched their game against Southampton and against QPR, they deserved to go through to the next round.“They played very well – they were the more aggressive and physical team. I think we need to be focused on our game and play with intensity, high level and high tempo.“No excuse, we need to go onto the pitch to try and win the game. It is a very important game, it is a semi-final. We understand that this is an important game.” Tottenham full-back Kyle Naughton read more

A total of 20 jobs have been saved after a rescue deal was done to keep open two service stations owned by the Blaney family.Lagg Service Station in Milford.The Lagg Service Station in Milford and Blaney’s Shop at Kerrykeel recently went into receivership.However, Sean Carr of Dublin-based Vision Accountancy, has confirmed that after protracted and prolonged discussions with KPMG, the businesses will remain open. The deal was signed on Tuesday in Dublin.The welcome news comes just weeks after an additional 30 jobs were saved in the Brewery Bar and the Central Bar in Letterkenny in June, buisnesses also owned by the Blaney family.It is understood that the deal hit a number of stumbling blocks over the last few weeks but these issues have now been finally resolved.Mr Carr told the Tirconail Tribune that Milford and Kerrykeel and its rural hinterland without these two vital two shops would be too horrendous to contemplate. He said the locality and the community would be very much the poorer and with the Fanad and Rosguill peninsulas heavily dependent on tourism, it was vital that these business remained opened.“No tourists coming to Donegal want to see shutters on doors and if a business closes it is virtually impossible to get the business up and going again.“Closing the doors is the easiest option for banks but the most costly one in the long term for the banks and destroys staff lives and families never mind the damage it does to the businesses.“It comes to a massive relief to the staff and their families and if a rescue deal was not agreed it only add further to the withdrawal of essential rural services and rural decline.”Mr Carr, the Fanad born debt restructurer expert, has been involved in debt restructuring cases throughout Ireland, Europe and USA. He said he is deeply concerned about the future of businesses in Donegal and has called on the government for urgent action for businesses to be given some form of grant aid to access to specialist restructures.The no nonsense and tough style negotiator, is hoping to hold a number of one to one free meetings with SMEs in Donegal over the coming weeks.“It be would be very easy for me to idly stand by and let the destruction to happen but I would be hopefully be able to look back in ten years and say I made some small difference in saving jobs and communities.“I took a conscious decision not to act for banks and who has saved over 100 in Donegal indirectly and directly in the last 18 months alone, some restructures count the number of cases they have as the barometer of their success but I also count the number of jobs that I have not been able to save,” he added.
