Playing for Fun and Exercise

first_imgFootball plays a large part in the lives of both young and old Liberians, and especially with Liberia producing the only person to emerge as a World Player the important role of the game cannot be overlooked.The establishment of an old-timer football league in the country, which allowed former professionals and amateur players at the age 40 to participate for physical recreation, offers many benefits, ranging from simple enjoyment to improved health and social interaction.In the just ended ECOWAS Integrity and Solidarity Old-timer Football Tournament, Foreign Minister Augustine Kpehe Ngafuan was the skipper for the Barnersville Old-timer team.The winger cum striker’s side whipped Paynesville old-timer 8-7 in a penalty shoot-out after the 70 minutes ended 2-2.The likes of former Lone Star players Sam Chebli and Janjay Jacobs were teammates to the Minister with Chebli on the extreme right while Janjay was in front of the goal.Paynesville showcased the likes of former Lone Star players Kelvin Sebwe, Jonathan Boye Charles Sogbie and Papie Sumo.Inarguably a fling from Ngafuan to Chebli gave Janjay early head up in the 8th minute. Papie Sumo struck the equalizer in the 14th minute, but before the break Sam Chebli increased the tally from a sublime pass from the Foreign Minister.Twelve minutes to stoppage time, the Minister was substituted and six minutes later, Kelvin Sebwe squeezed the rotation.Debatably, the Minister’s absence in the semi-finals against Lakpazee on Sunday might have caused the 2-1 defeat. Prince Harrison and Stephen Nimely in the 5th and 60th minutes threw Barnersville out in spite of the consolation goal by Wearl Venn in the 13th minute.Earlier, the tournament’s favorite Alpha Old-timer was spanked 2-0, courtesy of Ben Saydee and Rufus Neufville in the 2nd and 28th minutes.   Youth and Sports Minister Lenn Eugene Nagbe wouldn’t push enough to get either an equalizer or a win and there was no one to convert his three encouraging crosses.Many Alpha players said that the absence of Sen. Amb. George M. Weah, Finance Minister Amara Konneh, NOCAL boss Dr. Nathaniel McClain and others caused their defeat.Labour Minister Neto Lighe’s Sinkor Old-timer was also thrown out in a lottery kick after the field-of-play ended goalless.Howbeit, Bame clinched the ECOWAS Cup, having whipped Lakpazee Old-timer 4-2 in a lottery shot after 70 minutes of entertaining football ended 1-1.According to the former Secretary of Alpha, Bryant McGill aged people are actively engaged in the game in order to reduce the likelihood of a person developing many chronic diseases.Bryant named some of health benefits of playing soccer as increased aerobic capacity and cardiovascular health; lowering body fat and improving muscle tone; building strength, flexibility and endurance; increasing muscle and bone strength and improving health due to shifts between walking, running and sprinting.He said another benefits to old-timer footballers is teamwork. It also enables the old timer to share; help them to ‘think on the run’ and increases concentration, persistence and self-discipline.“Through old timer football we make new friends and subsequently get employment,” Mr. Bryant said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Cameroon Remains Resilient Amid Crisis

first_imgCameroonian Ambassador Beng’Yela Augustine Gang delivering remarks at his country’s 47th independence anniversary, observed in MonroviaCelebrates 47th Independence AnniversaryIn 2015 and 2016 the Republic of Cameroon could not just jubilate on their Independence Day, which occurs on May 20, but had something to show. During celebration images of major development in infrastructure and socioeconomic development were displayed for the view of invitees.However, since 2018, the desire for development has come to face challenges arising from violent clashes between separatist fighters and the national army in the North-West and South-West of the country, thereby killing people, burning towns and villages, and displacing tens of thousands of citizens.In his deliberation in Monrovia on the celebration of National Day on May 21, 2019, one day later after the main day, May 20, Ambassador Beng’Yela Augustine Gang said, “In recent months, my country has been traversing stormy weather with some vibrations being felt under the stout national edifice.”Amb. Gang, however, mustered the courage that for the very large majority of Cameroonians, the long-established reputation as a haven for peace in the sub-region will not easily pass into oblivion.He said amid the national challenges, both their leadership and citizenry have always deployed immense passion and conviction in the task of consolidating mutual tolerance.According to the ambassador, the Cameroonian populations, despite the tough moments in the country’s history, have continued to move with confidence into each other’s ethnic and linguistic zones to find temporary fraternal relief.While confronted by national crisis that has the propensity to halt development, Amb. Gang said the government’s intention for development of the people of Cameroon remains on the agenda.He said in the last two years the government has been actively engaged in peace and reconciliation initiatives characterized by the creation of an exclusive, special Common Law section at the National School of Administration and Magistracy that trains career judges and civil administrators and state financial managers.He added that under a decree of December 13, 2018, there was suspension of prosecution followed by the release of almost 300 detainees arrested in connection with the Anglophone unrest; the creation of a National Commission for the Promotion of Bilingualism and multiculturalism by Decree of January 23, 2017, the opening of an English-speaking Higher National Polytechnique in Bamenda as an undergraduate-level institution attached to the University of Bamenda that was itself opened in 2011 as the second purely English Language State University of Cameroon.Other were the launch of the over 20 million dollar National Emergency Humanitarian Assistance Program for the North West and South West regions, and the creation by presidential decree of November 30, 2018 of a National Committee for Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration.The NCDDR holding centers, according to Amb. Gang, has started receiving “Repented” fighters, who are assured that the laying down of their arms would be tantamount to total pardon and rehabilitation.“With the slight resurgence of Boko Haram incursions, especially in North East Nigeria, Cameroon has been under renewed pressure to host over 30,000 hew refugees with UNHCR support; and lastly, but without being exhaustive, recent repeated calls by President Paul Biya that we have now reached the time for urgent forgiveness, pardon and reconciliation,” Amb. Gang said.He said recent visit to Bamenda, Buea, Kumba and Limbe by Prime Minister Dion NGUTE in this May at the request of President Biya confirms that the mood in favor of dialogue and reconciliation is stronger.He assured that Cameroon will in all circumstances move steadily toward a developing nation with the hope of attaining socioeconomic emergence as a respectable middle income country by the year 2035 (Cameroon Vision 2035).In line with its vision, Cameroon is said to have completed various hydro-electric power plants; the kribi deep sea port, a modern, indigenously-owned cocoa transformation plant in the West Region, and a new, modern state hospital.The defense forces of Cameroon, the Ambassador noted, has continued to play key development roles—building modern roads in areas abandoned by foreign contractors scared away by Boko Haram threats.In sports, Amb. Gang recounted that Cameroonian under 17 National Football team won the African Nations Cup in Tanzania in April 2018, while the senior Indomitable Lions qualified for the next African Nations Cup, and aim to give excellent account of themselves in Egypt this June.A number of activities including sport encounters in Basketball with Liberia preceded the celebration on May 21, and with the cooperation of Liberians, Amb. Gang extolled the people and the police of Liberia for making the celebration a success.For Liberia’s situation, Gang said Cameroonians truly feel what Liberians feel, and in its current moment of tension have lessons to learn from Liberia’s past.However, he added “We also nurture fraternal hopes that Liberia does not slip back by undue presumptions into a past that we all neither want to remember, nor to see repeated.”He lauded his diplomatic colleagues in Liberia for remaining tireless, neutral, respectful and discreet in helping Liberia to avoid retrogression.Minister of State without Portfolio, Trokon T. Kpui, on behalf of President George Weah and the people of Liberia, extended warm felicitations to the government and people of Cameroon and recalled how President Weah has his football history tied to Cameroon.He expressed the hope that the bilateral relation between the two countries will continue to be nurtured.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Fire razes Cummings Lodge homes

first_img− owner estimates losses in excess of MTwo families were rendered homeless on Thursday after a midday fire destroyed two houses at Lot 328 Fifth Field, South-East Cummings Lodge, Greater Georgetown.The blaze commenced sometime around 12:00h and gutted two homes, which were located in the same yard. The front house was a two-storey concrete building, while the back building was a wooden structure, rented to two brothers.The burnt remains of the two houses destroyed during the midday fireGuyana Times understands that the fire emanated from the wooden house at the back and quickly spread onto to the front house, destroying both buildings. Only the concrete section on the ground floor of the front house was left standing after the blaze was put out.At the time of the fire, no one was home in either of the two buildings. However, a neighbour related to this newspaper that they saw smoke coming from the back house and within 10 minutes time, the blaze engulfed the wooden structure and moved over to the front house.“We just saw the back house on fire, we don’t know how it caught fire, but it spread to the upstairs onto the front house… Everybody tried to put out the fire, all the boys around throw water to out the fire but they couldn’t do it,” the woman explained.The traumatised owner of the destroyed housesShe continued that by the time the fire service arrived at the scene, the two houses were already engulfed, and so they immediately went into action to contain the fire. To prevent the blaze from spreading further, the fire fighters also drenched the neighbour’s house, during which many of their belongings were destroyed by the water.Meanwhile, Guyana Times also spoke with the owner of the two houses which were destroyed, Roopnarine Sukhram, who explained to reporters that he was at Wales, West Bank Demerara, repairing his car when he got a call from one of his daughters, who informed him that their house was on fire.“One of the neighbours called and tell her that the house is on fire and when I come, the house done burn down and the fire service was here but they done out the fire,” he stated.The traumatised man noted that he is not sure what might have caused the blaze but was told by neighbours that it originated from the tenants’ quarters. Sukhram and his two daughters occupied the two storey concrete house, which he said was fully furnished with all modern amenities. He estimated his loses to be somewhere around $30 million.Meanwhile, the two tenants, one of whom is a teacher attached to the St Stanislaus College, were at the scene and appeared visibly shaken as they realised that they too lost all of their belongings. The men have been renting the property for about three years now.This publication understands one of the brothers was at home earlier in the day and left to go pick up his daughter from school. However, at the time there was a female in the house, who disappeared after the fire.last_img read more

Dele Alli was so close to leaving Stadium MK for Liverpool instead

first_img Alli scored for England at the World Cup 3 Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade The deal was so good, the White Hart Lane faithful even have a song for it, which includes him being hailed as better than Mesut Ozil.But they almost didn’t have him, as Brendan Rodgers explained in 2016.Alli grew up supporting Liverpool and loved Steven Gerrard so the club managed to get him, Karl Robinson, his MK Dons manager as well as his parents up to the city to talk about a possible transfer.“We thought we had him at Liverpool,” Rodgers said.“The manager of MK Dons actually drove him down to us. They played a game on the Saturday and we were playing West Ham on the Sunday.“We’d had contact with Dele, it was all above board, I was speaking with Karl Robinson and I spoke to Dele and his adoptive parents.

Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won 3 3 silverware Alli joined Tottenham in 2015 and has scored 38 Premier League goals in 111 games Spurs got the deal for Alli done in January 2015, but loaned him back to MK Dons for the rest of the season.Discussing the transfer with Football Focus in 2016, Alli said he did travel to Merseyside and was told he’d meet Gerrard.“At the time when I was at MK there was contact with Liverpool before I signed for Tottenham, but that was before we’d even spoke to Tottenham,” he said. “I think it was six months before.“We went up there and I think they knew that Steven Gerrard was my hero, so they said he was going to come down to meet me, but when I got there he was asleep apparently.“I think he had a game the next day though so I understand.”Finishing the season in Milton Keynes in 2015, he helped the club win promotion to the Championship and was named the Football League Young Player of the Year.“I was sad when I left but I knew it had to be done. It was a decision I made and to come into the Premier League, to come to Tottenham… I haven’t looked back since,” he told his first season at Spurs his performances, where he scored 10 goals, won him the PFA Young Player of the Year award, which he picked up again the following year.
