“Some players were given the opportunity to leave or take a salary cut. We have a squad of 40 players with about seventy-five percent of the squad on contract,” he also disclosed. “We are trying to have a meeting with the players before the end of the week to explain the new situation moving forward. Now, we are looking at a budget of between $1.3 to $1.4 million in salaries. The PLCA gives each club $300,000 monthly, but we have to find creative ways to meet our budget,” Roberts explained. He also said the entire board was still in place, but there had been changes to the security arrangement. “We have a change in the security as we need stricter gate control. We had also planned to play the game against Tivoli under lights, but because it was a planned television game, the 3 p.m. start time could not be changed,” he further said. On the field, veteran Tivoli goalkeeper Edsel ‘Robbie’ Scott was forced into a number of spectacular saves as his nine-man team held the hosts in a hotly contested match. Scott’s heroics were the highlight of the game and he was duly awarded the Man of the Match. Tivoli lost their captain and central defender Romaine Breakenridge, who received a red card in the 31st minute for violent conduct after hitting Arnett’s striker Damari ‘Hustler’ Deacon in an off-the-ball incident. Mitchily Waul was then given his marching orders after yellow cards in the 42nd and 52nd minutes. However, Arnett failed to capitalise on their two-man advantage. Among Scott’s saves was a penalty kick taken by Arnett’s substitute Kemal ‘Tull’ Malcolm in the 81st minute. He also denied Deacon early in the game. Humble Lion 3 Maverley-Hughenden 0 Portmore United1 Waterhouse 0 Montego Bay United 1 UWI FC 0 FC Reno 4 Boys’ Town 0 Arnett Gardens 0 Tivoli Gardens 0 Harbour View 3 Jamalco 0 Upset by a salary dispute brought on by a restructuring exercise at their club, Arnett Gardens’ players stayed away from training for three days last week ahead of yesterday’s Red Stripe Premier League clash against rivals Tivoli Gardens at the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex. All things considered, the 0-0 scoreline – despite coming against nine men – can hardly be considered a negative with reports that the players were at one point considering to not show up for the fixture. This after the club’s hierarchy decided early last week to cut the squad size and chop the salaries of players as well as members of the technical staff. President of Arnett Gardens FC Patrick Roberts said that because sponsors withdrew their support, the club was faced with a situation that required these decisions. “Following a meeting of the club’s executive body last month, a decision was taken to cut salaries. Our budget was between $1.7 million to $2 million previously on a monthly basis,” Roberts told The Gleaner after yesterday’s match. “We looked at our situation, which is not unique because of the economical crisis. What happened is that the chairman met with the other executive members last month to look at downsizing. We still tried to come up with the additional funds, but that did not happen. NEW SITUATION Yesterday’s results
COMPETITIONS The meet will see competitions in the 100, 110, 400 and 1500, 100, and 400 metres, the long jump, high jump, discus, and shot put in the Boys and Girls’ Championships class categories. Four competitors per school is the maximum allowed entry size for track events, with three being the maximum for field events. In addition, schools are being asked to bring their own throwing implements, which will be weighed to ensure they meet the requirement specifications. Also on the agenda for the meet are Olympic Development 400- and 800-metre races for both men and women. The meet is scheduled to start at 8.30 a.m. and end at 5 p.m. – H.L. After a successful first staging of the McKenley-Wint Classic last year, organisers are planning for growth when the meet is contested for the second time at Calabar High School on January 21. Accordingly, plans are in place to accommodate more patrons this time around. Central to these plans is the erection of a temporary stand beside the track. This was revealed by organising committee member Lincoln Eatmon at the launch of the meet at the offices of the Jamaica Baptist Union yesterday. Speaking just after the launch, Eatmon indicated that the temporary stand would be on the back straight side of the track and would add seating to that provided last year on the finish straight side. “We’re going to have stands on both sides of the track so that spectators will be able to sit,” he said. Last year, reported Eatmon, the meet saw more than 2,000 patrons. “This year, we expect much larger than that,” he projected.

Gareth Southgate has rejected the opportunity to succeed Roy Hodgson as England manager, according to reports.The 45-year-old has been touted as an ‘obvious’ successor to Hodgson following the veteran’s resignation from his post, but Southgate has no plans to leave his current role in charge of the Under-21s and taint his career with the senior job.He would have not been the most inspiring option, and few fans have lobbied for the former Middlesbrough boss to be hired given his struggles at club level, even though he has somewhat impressed at youth level with the Three Lions.Despite crashing out of the 2015 Under-21 European Championship as the last placed team in Group B, he led his team on a successful campaign at the Toulon Tournament, beating hosts France 2-1 in the final.Southgate won 57 caps for the Three Lions as a player, but he reportedly wants to remain with the Under-21s, before taking on a club job to further his career. 1 Gareth Southgate is set to remain as England Under-21 manager

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Instead of saying next time, NASCAR should have set an example after the race of sitting down drivers who deliberately act in this manner. There was no question in either case. NASCAR can have high television ratings without giving up its integrity. They must have changed the water in Glendora. For the second time in three weeks, the NHRA has made a good call. The drag racing sanctioning body postponed its Powerade Drag Racing Series event this weekend in Ennis, Texas, moving it to Oct. 6-8 because of the threat of Hurricane Rita. With Texans being urged to move inland as the storm approaches, the last thing anybody wanted was bunch of out-of-towners flying in for drag racing. Rumors that California Speedway officials want to throw drag racers out is simply untrue and unfounded. It’s a matter of doing business. The top priority for the speedway is its NASCAR events, which draw nearly 250,000 fans in six days. As such, the track has made a proposal to the International Speedway Corporation board of directors seeking enhancements of the grandstands. What NASCAR needs is the D word (discipline). Last Sunday’s race at New Hampshire featured two drivers using their wrecked cars as battering rams. One was successful, another missed but did connect with his helmet. NASCAR’s reaction was to issue fines for money and points. If this had been any of the stick and ball sports, Kasey Kahne and Robby Gordon would have been suspended if not hauled off to jail. NASCAR doesn’t have a drug problem, just anger management. Getting out some strong opinions on current situations: NASCAR doesn’t like the R word (redneck), and with good reason. It’s not flattering and conjures images of the early days of stock car racing. These days, it’s a billion dollar business with Fortune 500 companies willing to spend money for a company logo on the rear quarter panel, A post, hood or trunk. NASCAR has become part of the mainstream sports world. The plan is an internal ISC matter, but if track management is concerned that it might impact the drag strip, you can assume the project is substantial. Track manager Dave Danish and facilities director Andrew Lund did a tremendous job of turning the main parking lot into a quarter-mile strip capable of handling a 261 mph pass in two weeks’ time. Tearing down the track strip eased the parking situation during the Labor Day Sunday race, making for a smooth entry into the track. Track president Gillian Zucker has taken a cautious approach. Until she is informed of the board decision, she has opted not to schedule events for 2006. It’s much better to add than to subtract. Louis Brewster covers motor sports for.

Sinn Féin’s Finance Spokesperson Pearse Doherty TD has said the government must stop stalling on the Banking Inquiry and lay out its plans this week.The Deputy has written to An Taoiseach today urging him not to kick the Inquiry into the long grass.Deputy Doherty told Donegal Daily: “The Oireachtas has passed the legislation to allow for a banking inquiry. Earlier this summer the country was rocked by the details of the Anglo tapes which only emerged some five years after the banking crisis. “The time has come for the government to invite all parties to sit down and hammer out the terms of references for the inquiry.“It is clear that there is no excuse for delays and that the government must meet with the parties and lay out its plans. There is an overwhelming public interest in moving swiftly and setting up an inquiry which will get to the truth as quickly as possible. Sinn Fein wants to see that process underway immediately.“There are many current and former members of the Dáil who have more information than they have disclosed regarding the events around the banking guarantee. All such information needs to be put in the public domain.“For these reasons I have today written to An Taoiseach urging him to proceed without delay in calling the parties together so we can move forward on this inquiry which the public are not prepared to see kicked into the long grass.” DOHERTY TELLS TAOISEACH: ‘TIME TO STOP STALLING ON BANK INQUIRY’ was last modified: August 29th, 2013 by John2Share 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:banking crisisDOHERTY TELLS TAOISEACH: ‘TIME TO STOP STALLING ON BANK INQUIRY’donegal daily newsPearse Doherty
