NSRI Moves to Branch Out with New Board Members

first_imgThe National Subsea Research Initiative (NSRI) has elected two new board members as it looks to expand its capabilities in the growing renewables, mining, defence and aquaculture sectors.Following a strategic review, NSRI identified the need to restructure in order to reflect the global energy transition.Although still heavily focused on the oil and gas market, the organisation will be looking to enhance its offerings to better support other offshore sectors.Simon Cheeseman, of the ORE Catapult and Claus Hjoerringgaard of Wood Clean Energy have joined the board of NSRI to support the organisation’s plans to support UK companies break into multiple energy markets.Under the leadership of NSRI chairman, Peter Blake, the newly elected board members should ensure the organisation continues to foster strong links with the UK supply chain and academia to address the technology needs of the current and future energy mix.Blake, commented: “With our new board in place, our main focus for 2018 is to ensure that we continue to help companies and developers overcome the barriers of diversification to make their mark in the wider offshore sector. While oil and gas is likely to hold strong and dominate the global energy supply for years to come, subsea companies also need to look at how they can adapt and expand their presence across multiple markets.”last_img read more

Saints return holds no fear for Redknapp

first_img “They are not bad people there. I wouldn’t say Southampton supporters are nasty, aggressive people. They’re not. They’re good supporters and they’ll give me a bit of grief but that’s life. I accept that. I will just get on with. I won’t lose any sleep over that. I will only lose sleep if the result is bad.” Anything but victory for QPR could prove disastrous for a side already seven points adrift of safety at the bottom of the Premier League. That is where Southampton ended the 2004-05 season under Redknapp but he insists he has a clear conscience. “Listen, no one was more upset than I was that the club got relegated that year,” he added. “When I went there were four teams cut adrift by miles and we just couldn’t get out of it. “I gave everything I had and that’s all you can do. You can look yourself in the mirror. No one tried harder than I did. You can only give your best at the end of the day. You are relying on players. I have said when I have been successful and done well at Tottenham, it is about good players. That is what the game is about. “If you’ve got good players, it is an easy game. You send them on the pitch and off they go. They perform week in, week out. It’s easy and the better players you’ve got the easier the job is.” QPR manager Harry Redknapp will not be losing any sleep over the hostile reception awaiting him at Southampton on Saturday, insisting he has no regrets ahead of his first return to St Mary’s. Saints suffered relegation from the Barclays Premier League eight years ago under the supervision of Redknapp, who then quit to re-join bitter rivals Portsmouth a matter of months later. That period still rankles with many Southampton fans, who will no doubt make their feelings known when he brings bottom side QPR to the south coast tomorrow. “Listen, I will get a bit of grief, won’t I? But what can you do? That’s no problem,” he said. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

McClair handed SFA role

first_imgFormer Scotland striker Brian McClair is leaving Manchester United to become the Scottish Football Association’s performance director. McClair will take on responsibility for implementing the SFA’s performance strategy, which is designed to improve the development of elite players. The governing body wants most of the Scotland team to have emerged from its performance programme by 2020. However Wotte, who quit in October 2014 just over three years into the long-term project, recently warned that Scottish football risked going backwards unless more youth coaches focused on developing individuals rather than winning. The Dutchman encountered some opposition to his methods and approach but McClair arrives with a strong reputation in Scotland. The former Motherwell and Celtic striker, who won 30 international caps, has worked for United for the last 13 years after rejoining the club in a coaching role. McClair, who will assume control of seven regional performance schools, said: “I am extremely proud to have been given the responsibility to help Scottish football move forward as performance director of the Scottish FA. “I am sure my experiences can be of benefit to Scottish football and having spent the majority of the last 30 years in England with Manchester United I am looking forward to coming home, working with the coaching team at the Scottish FA and the clubs, and sharing the knowledge I have built up in that time to take on this new, exciting challenge.” Regan added: “The process of identifying a new performance director was thorough and hugely uplifting when we considered the quality of candidates. “Brian very quickly became a stand-out with his blend of experiences not just from his trophy-laden career as a player at Manchester United, and his international contribution, but the depth of his coaching experiences with one of the biggest and most successful teams in the world. Press Association “He has been at the cutting edge of coaching evolution, analysis and performance management at Manchester United and the recruitment panel were convinced he was the ideal person to lead the performance strategy into an exciting new era, enhancing the current provision while demonstrating the benefits of the investment so far to the future of Scottish football. “I would like to thank Gordon, Walter and Andy for their invaluable input.” Manchester United’s executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, paid tribute to a player who was an instant hit at Old Trafford after becoming the first United player in 20 years to hit 20 league goals in a season. He said: “Brian’s association with Manchester United started in 1987 and, regardless of where he is located, he will always be part of the family. “As a proud Scotsman, this is a wonderful opportunity for him and he goes with our blessing and our good wishes for the future. “In his time as academy manager, he has maintained and enhanced its reputation around the world and made a valuable contribution to the club’s success.” The 51-year-old will succeed Mark Wotte from June 1 after ending a 25-year spell at Old Trafford that culminated in his current role as director of the youth academy. An SFA statement read: “He was identified unanimously as preferred candidate during a recruitment process which involved the current Scotland national coach, Gordon Strachan, previous national coaches Walter Smith and Andy Roxburgh, as well as the Scottish FA’s chief executive, Stewart Regan.” last_img read more

How Jamie Trimboli’s transformed shot led to 1st team All-American season

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ The way Army goalie Wyatt Schupler reacted to Jamie Trimboli’s shot was logical. Most goalies did the same: they figured he’d shoot high. Film showed Trimboli’s tendency. Analysis by announcers confirmed it.Four minutes into the third quarter of Syracuse’s Feb. 23 game against the Black Knights, Trimboli circled behind the Army defense before cutting down the middle lane — catching a pass and beating Schupler one-on-one. When Trimboli’s stick rose, Schupler jumped. But instead, Trimboli deposited the ball into the bottom corner.Once he arrived at Syracuse, Trimboli couldn’t get away with the same offensive approach he used at nationally-ranked Victor (New York) High School, one that consisted of a sidearm shot rifled to the top corner. It became too predictable.“Everyone likes to see the upper corner shot where the net poofs out,” Joe, Trimboli’s father, said. Over the next three seasons, Trimboli worked to fix that. Goalies continued to anticipate the high shots, but he made it more challenging to distinguish between overhand and sidearm shots until the last minute. He established a scoring rate in 2020 that was on pace to surpass his Syracuse-highs in goals, points and shot percentage. It meshed with offensive coordinator Pat March’s new offense to help create what coaches called the country’s best midfield line with Brendan Curry and Tucker Dordevic, a trio that will remain intact next year after Trimboli announced he’ll use the NCAA’s eligibility relief.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Putting the ball low, putting it away, putting it on the hips, putting it in the corners, just changing it up,” Trimboli said. “Not being so predictable … and I feel like now I can kinda spray it all over the cage.” Katelyn Marcy | Digital Design DirectorAfter Trimboli was thrust into a starting role midway through his freshman year at Syracuse, opposing goalies started cheating high. They had always done that, but what worried him and Joe was the number of shots saved. Despite ranking sixth on the Orange with 13 goals and becoming the first Syracuse University offensive freshman to start more than 10 games in a decade, Trimboli still stumbled to a 28.9 shooting percentage. Until that point, it hadn’t mattered where Trimboli placed his shot. Top corners worked, so that became a habit. When Joe bought Trimboli his first stick from Dick’s Sporting Goods before starting Anthony Bianchi’s Aquinas Youth Lacrosse program, it was a “little whippy stick” Trimboli used to imitate college lacrosse shooting videos. Where Trimboli was raised, there was no lacrosse program, youth or high school, Joe said. Bianchi had coached Trimboli with Greece Chargers Pop Warner football but started the Aquinas Youth Program to pave a lacrosse avenue for a city that didn’t have one.  With a naturally powerful shot, Trimboli started on Bianchi’s team despite still learning the sport’s basics with Joe before games — how to scoop ground balls and catch passes. He learned how to dodge past defenders and capitalize on a goalie’s delayed reaction and ended up with 169 goals in three years at Victor — the town Trimboli’s family moved to when he was a sophomore in high school.“It gave kids like Jamie a chance to get into lacrosse and start growing,” Bianchi said.When Trimboli arrived at Syracuse, he stopped scoring at the same rate. Joe and his family would watch all the Orange’s games live, and then again at home, trying to observe for a second time why Trimboli wasn’t scoring. Ryan Powell, one of the analysts on those reruns, always pointed to the same flaw. “He’s a great player but he’s got to go high-low,” Joe recalled Powell saying. “He’s shooting upper corner all the time.”The changed approach required tweaks in practice, beyond the actual shot. Cover defender Brett Kennedy whacked Trimboli’s stick when he left it out in the open during dodges. Goalie Drake Porter pointed out how deceptive Trimboli’s shot was when he went overhand and hid the ball. “You can’t just throw gumballs at the net and hope they go in,” Porter said.“Time under tension” reps with Peter Dearth and David Lipka in the weight room complemented summers of Victor Crossfit with his older brother, Joey, and allowed Trimboli’s shooting percentage to increase nearly three points after his sophomore season. Under offensive coordinator March’s different tactics during the 2020 season, everything started to come together: the now-sporadically used sidearm shot, paired with the reemergence of the overhand one.Katelyn Marcy | Digital Design DirectorThrough five games of the shortened season, Trimboli was second on the Orange with 17 goals and converted 47.2% of his shots. His first goal of the season included a dodge past a defender and a shot that painted the lower-left corner, coming 20 minutes into the season-opener against Colgate. Two weeks later, he almost single-handedly led the Orange’s comeback against Army. Ever since Trimboli made the adjustments to his shot, the majority of Powell’s comments have turned positive: “Trimboli’s been re-calculating his shots.” They’d become less predictable.Against Army, less than a minute after Trimboli had cut the deficit to one, a Stephen Rehfuss pass in transition reached Trimboli, the trailer, who skipped twice to gather momentum behind his shot. An Army defender’s check threw him off balance, though. From the Carrier Dome stands, Joe screamed for a flag as Trimboli regained his footing and cut past his defender into a shooting lane.Schupler still kept his stick high. But for the second time, Trimboli bounced the ball past him into the bottom corner. Comments Published on April 29, 2020 at 11:18 pm Contact Andrew: | @CraneAndrewlast_img read more
