0Shares0000Taqwa FC Player Mohamed Ali (Front) shields the ball away from Mwingi JuniorsPatrick Mwangangi during last year’s Safaricom Chapa Dimba Eastern-Region finalsat the Embu Stadium.NAIROBI, Kenya, March 5 – After the opening two rounds, the Chapa Dimba Na Safaricom heads to Eastern region with Kitui Showground hosting the football tournament this weekend (March 9-10).Eight youth teams will battle it out for the region’s supremacy and a chance to play in the national finals set for June in Meru County. The region’s competition begun in January with a total of 176 teams taking part in the preliminaries.The boys’ semis will see Isiolo Young Stars play Triumph boys from Embu while Mwingi’s Super Solico will take on Samba boys from Moyale.The corresponding girls’ category will have Karugwa Queens from Meru Central face Chuka Starlets from Meru South as Marsabit’s Sakuu Queens meet St. Mary’s Ndovea from Makueni.The region’s defending champions Mwingi Junior Academy and Ngakaa Talent Center, failed to qualify for regional finals to pave way for new champions to be crowned.Mwingi Juniors celebrate after beating Taqwa FC 5-4 on post-match penalties to winEastern tittle of Chapa Dimba Na Safaricom champions last at the Embu Stadium.“The matches have been very competitive all the way from the grassroots level. We have seen new and aggressive players and teams putting their talents into action and we hope some of them will form the all-star team that will train in Spain. The teams are ready and we expect entertaining football this weekend,” said Iddy Badi, Chapa Dimba Na Safaricom Eastern Region Coordinator.The regional winners will receive a cash reward of Sh200,000 each and a chance to represent the region in the tournament’s national finals. The runners- up will also pocket Sh 100,000 each.Already, Western region’s Bishop Njenga Girls and Lugari Blue Saints as well as Manyatta Boys and Ndhiwa Queens from Nyanza have qualified for the national finals after winning their respective regional titles.After Eastern the tournament moves to Rift Valley, Coast, Central, North Eastern and Nairobi regions as the race to La Liga heats up.The competition aims at scouting for youth talent, developing grassroots football, and ultimately propel gifted players to the national team.This year an all-star team will be selected to attend a training camp in Spain during which they will play against local youth sides.0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today)
If they avoid defeat against Uruguay at Rio de Janeiro’s Maracana stadium on Monday, they will win the group and play Peru in the last eight.But a defeat would send them to a quarter-final against Colombia, who won a Group B containing Argentina with a 100 percent record.“This is the theme to consider, as well as how he reacts today after training,” said Colombian Rueda.“From what I’ve sensed, everyone wants to play tomorrow and everyone is very committed.”Sanchez has started to rediscover his best form in Brazil following a dreadful club season with Manchester United.He’s scored two goals in two Group C games — more than he managed in 20 Premier League matches for United this season.“We can only decide (if he plays) after evening training, whether he can run, whether he can handle the workload,” added Rueda, who said that Sanchez would either start or not be involved at all.Chile’s other main star — Barcelona midfielder Arturo Vidal — is also a doubt.“Artur’s case also depends on how his muscle reacts to the recovery period,” said Rueda.Monday’s clash promises to be a fiery affair as Chile and Uruguay have recent history.In 2015, when Chile won the Copa America for the first time, they knocked out Uruguay in a controversial quarter-final.Uruguay’s Edinson Cavani was sent off after picking up a second booing for flicking his hand into the face of Gonzalo Jara, in retaliation for the Chile defender trying to shove a finger up his backside.Jara, who is unlikely to start the game, was also punched by Luis Suarez during a match in 2013 after touching the firebrand Uruguay forward’s testicles.Rueda is more concerned about the threat posed by Uruguay’s talented strike pair than any potential trouble.“Their great virtue is that they’re great finishers, they penetrate really well, they’ve scored an amazing number of international goals,” said Rueda.Suarez with 58 and Cavani with 47 are the top two scorers in Uruguay’s history.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Chile coach Reinaldo Rueda (right) must decide whether or not to play Alexis Sanchez in Monday’s clash with Uruguay © AFP / NELSON ALMEIDARIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil, Jun 24 – Chile coach Reinaldo Rueda faces a Copa America dilemma on Monday: either rest star forward Alexis Sanchez, or go all-out for top spot in Group C.Sanchez aggravated an old ankle injury in Friday’s 2-1 win over Ecuador that secured the reigning champions’ place in the quarter-finals.

BY Micheál Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuig: A MEETING of local residents was held in Ionad Naomh Padraig Gaoth Dobhair last Wednesday resolved to organise a broad based campaign of opposition to the Household Tax and to initiate a boycott and mass non-payment of the tax.The new Household Tax announced this week by Environment Minister Phil Hogan will see the introduction of an annual tax of €100 on households from January 2012 regardless of income. The tax is being imposed as part of the surrender pact with the EU/IMF and it has already been agreed that this initial €100 tax will increase in 2013.Alongside this household tax the coalition government is determined to impose a domestic water tax within the next two years. As a result households could face annual local taxes in excess of €500. The meeting heard from residents who are increasingly angry at being targeted yet again for additional taxes to bail out the banks. A local spokesperson commented after the meeting:“This is just the beginning of a campaign of opposition to yet another unjust tax being imposed on already hard pressed households. People simply cannot afford to pay, nor should they be made pay for the greed of bankers and the failures of the political system to act in the interests of the people. This unjust tax will see low income households pay the same rate as those on very high incomes. It is akin to the hated Poll Tax introduced by Margaret Thatcher in Britain in the late 1980s, in which all households regardless of income paid the same rate of local tax. Opposition to the Poll Tax in Britain ultimately led to Thatcher’s welcome demise in 1990.”“This is a community based campaign that will take opposition on to the streets with pickets, demonstrations, public meetings, marches, mass leafleting and postering. A central element of the campaign will be the organisation of a mass non-payment campaign. A campaign of mass non-payment and boycott will make this tax unworkable and unenforceable. This government must hear the message loud and clear – we cannot and we will not pay for the greed of bankers. A series of local meetings will be organised over coming weeks and we encourage everyone in the community to attend.ANTI PROPERTY TAX CAMPAIGN LAUNCHED IN GAOTH DOBHAIR was last modified: July 29th, 2011 by gregShare 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:Gaoth Dobhairproperty tax
After a winter of questions, Donegal answered the critics today with a fine performance to suggest last year’s championship run was no flash in the pan.It may only be the preliminary round of the Ulster Championship but Jim McGuinness’ side put in a fine display at Breffni Park to brush aside the challenge of Cavan.It took Donegal a while to get into the game and Cavan led 0-4 to 0-3 as they played with an early confidence. However the evergreen Colm McFadden managed to pull a couple of scores back along with a free from Neil McGee to put Donegal back in control.Donegal took a real grip on the game towards the close of the first half and went in at the break leading 0-4 to 1-7.The goal came courtesy of a penalty from McFadden after Paddy McBrearty was taken down inside the area.Two quick points from Mark McHugh and Colm McFadden looked like it was going to be a hammering for Cavan as Donegal led 1-9 to just 0-4. Cavan replied with a couple of points but Donegal continued to score with ease through McFadden, Frank McGlynn and McHugh again to make it 0-6 to 1-10.Big Glenswilly man Neil Gallagher added another point and Donegal looked like they were cruising into the next round.However Cavan were given some hope when they were awarded a penalty which Niall McDermott slotted past Paul Durkin to make it 1-7 to 1-13.The home side will rue no fewer than nine wides – and two strikes of the woodwork.The sides traded a flurry of points towards the final whistle but with Donegal always in control, it finished Cavan 1-10 to Donegal’s 1-16 in what was a fine game of football before almost 13,000 fans. Man of the Match was Colm McFadden who slotted 1-06 of the Donegal scores.Manager Jim McGuinness praised his players afterwards, particularly for the “freshness” they showed.“But we weren’t ruthless enough in the second half,” he said.“I suppose its’s job done and this buys us another month for the game against Derry. “A lot of the boys are students and this gives us a chance to coach them as a group. There are a lot of them doing exams and thankfully those will be finished in the next few days.“There is an awful lot of work we have to do for the Derry game.”The BBC Championship Man of the Match was St Eunan’s midfield star Rory Kavanagh who was playing his 100th game and scored three points on the day.“It was great to get off to a winning start today and now we’ll work on getting ready for the next game,” he said.The Derry game will be on Saturday June 16th in Ballybofey.Donegal’s Minors also had a good day against Cavan, who were Ulster title holders.The Donegal Minors won 1-11 to 0-10.Cavan : N McDermott 1-1 (1-0 pen, 0-1f), E Keating 0-5, D Givney 0-2, G McKiernan, J Brady 0-1 each.Donegal: C McFadden 1-6 (1-0 pen, 0-5f), R Kavanagh 0-3, M McHugh, L McLoone 0-2 each, N McGee, F McGlynn, N Gallagher 0-1 each.CAVAN: J Reilly, K Clarke, P O’Reilly, K Meehan, J McLoughlin, D Reilly, R Maloney-Derham, D Givney, G McKiernan, F Flanagan, R Flanagan, M McKeever, J Brady, E Keating, B Fitzpatrick.Subs: T Corr for Maloney-Derham, N McDermott for Fitzpatrick, N Smith for F Flanagan, K Tierney for McKeever, R Galligan for BradyDONEGAL: P Durcan, P McGrath, N McGee, F McGlynn, L McLoone, K Lacey, A Thompson, R Kavanagh, N Gallagher, D Walsh, M McHugh, R Bradley, P McBrearty, C McFadden, D Walsh.Subs: M O’Reilly for Bradley, M McElhinney for Walsh, D Molloy for GallagherReferee: C Reilly (Meath).DONEGAL ANSWER CRITICS WITH FINE FIRST ROUND DISPLAY TO BRUSH ASIDE CAVAN was last modified: May 21st, 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:CavandonegalJim McGuinnessUlster Championship
Sliabh LiagDonegal County Council has defended its decision to carry out upgrade works to Sliabh Liag during the peak of the summer season saying the majority of visitors will not be affected.Yesterday the council revealed it is closing parts of the iconic tourist attraction for a week from August 18th to upgrade walkways.A helicopter will carry in more than 500 tonnes of stone to upgrade the walks at the site. Local TD Thomas Pringle slammed the move and said the council should wait until September at least to carry out the works.But the council has now assured the public that the necessary works will not have a major impact on tourists.A statement said “Donegal County Council wishes to stress that the works and the closure of these sections of path will have no impact on the majority of visitors to Sliabh Liag as the upper car park and viewing areas at Bunglas which are the destination for the majority of visitors to Sliabh Liag will remain open at all times during the helicopter lifting operations.“The helicopter lifting operations have been arranged in consultation with stakeholders including the National Parks and Wildlife Service, Mountaineering Ireland, local hill walking groups and others. “The exclusion areas have been designed to minimise both risks to the public whilst also minimising the impact on visitors to the area and affected businesses.”The council added that the works are scheduled in line with weather – a claim disputed by Deputy Pringle who claims there will be very little difference in carrying them out a month later.He has appealed to the council to reconsider and reschedule their plans in Autumn saying Donegal tourism realistically has a six week period.

Rafael van der Vaart and Barry Opdam scored first-half goals for the Netherlands, which improved to 31 points in Group 1. England survived after David Beckham was sent off in the 58th minute.
