MISSED OPPORTUNITY Rivaldo English scored twice as Wolmer’s Boys blanked Camperdown 3-0 in a Group F ISSA/FLOW Manning Cup Group F match at Alpha Institute. English scored in the 24th and 75th minutes after Andre Daley had given Wolmer’s the lead in the 22nd minute. The Wolmer’s team played some attractive football and moved the ball around well and were safe in defence. Camperdown had their moments but could not break down the Heroes Circle-based school. Both teams entered the game as joint group leaders, but Wolmer’s moved to the top on nine points while Camperdown remained on six points. Camperdown’s best chance fell to their captain Tumekie Blackwood, who missed from close range, with Wolmer’s custodian Shemar Jennison out of position. English had a wonderful game and pushed his tally to four in three games. “It is a wonderful feeling to help my team to win the game. The objective is to score as many goals as possible to help the team move towards our goal of winning the Manning Cup,” English told The Gleaner. “I am happy with how the team is playing. We have played three games and won all of them, so it is a good start. We just have to work harder in the remaining games,” he shared. “This is my third season in the Manning Cup, and the dream is to win the title and follow in the footsteps of my father (Irvino English), who won the title at Norman Manley,” he disclosed. Wolmer’s head coach, Vassell Reynolds, praised his team for an improved performance. “It is a much-improved performance from the last game against Dunoon. It is a pretty good Camperdown team. However, we need to play simple, but it is a work in progress,” Reynolds reasoned.

With these workshops in place, the issues will be addressed sooner.Plans are also materialising to bridge the gap between the Public and Private Sector by having more workshops where new ideas can be exchanged.Throughout the day, the stakeholders were engaged in activities which were spearheaded by the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority Director General, Captain Egbert Field; GO-Invest Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Owen Verney; Guyana Tourism Authority (GTA) Director Brian Mullis; University of Guyana (UG) Lecturer Althea Connelly and Tourism and Hospitality Association of Guyana (THAG) President Andrea de Caires.Topics discussed included measures that are needed to support innovation in the tourism sector, ways in which Guyana can strengthen its internal and external means of transportation, and strategies that can be implemented for the promotion of multi-destination travel which involves Guyana.
The failure of the 80 year-old dam in Oliver, B.C. has put into question the safety of dams like those in the Peace River area.A list of dams and their classifications is available on the Ministry of the Environment website.Both the W.A.C. Bennett Dam and the Peace Canyon Dam are listed as having a “very high” consequence classification.- Advertisement -According to the B.C. Ministry of Environment, the classification is given if there are numerous consequences associated with a dam if it fails. The risks could include over 100 deaths and economic losses of over $100 million. The failure could also result in significant environmental and cultural losses, including harm to endangered species or culturally significant areas.According to David Currie, public affairs officer for the Ministry, dams that have a ‘high’ or ‘very high’ classification are checked every five years by the Ministry. However, the companies who operate dams are required to conduct an annual inspection and a monthly surveillance of their dams.The Testalinden Creek dam, which failed on June 13, 2010, was not listed on the B.C. Dams and Public Safety list for having a “high” or “very high” consequence classification.Advertisement The W.A.C. Bennett Dam is under 50 years-old and the Peace Canyon Dam is approximately 30 years-old.For further information regarding dam safety in British Columbia, click here.

Former Liverpool star Danny Murphy has told Christian Benteke to forget about a move to Anfield and remain at Aston Villa for at least one more season.The Belgian striker enjoyed a prolific end to the last campaign, scoring 12 goals in 12 Premier League games, which has led to the Reds reigniting their interest in the player.Benteke has left his agent in charge of his future, while Villans boss Tim Sherwood revealed he has a release clause of £32.5million.But Murphy has insisted it may be best for all parties if the bruising centre forward remains with Aston Villa for the foreseeable future.He told talkSPORT: “He wouldn’t get into Manchester City, Chelsea or even Arsenal’s side at the moment, so it would be more like a Liverpool or a Tottenham [who would sign him].“The problem is they’re never going to pay £32.5million to get him because last season he didn’t play well enough for a long enough and that was partly down to injuries.“I would suggest to him stay another year [at Aston Villa], play 35 games, get 20 goals, and then you might get a move to one of the big boys.“He’s a risky signing for a club to spend £32.5million on now. Inevitably when you have a really difficult injury it’s very hard to come back and play at your best level.“I think because he’s got age on his side, staying at Villa and having a sensational season might benefit him better in the long-term.”

New Sunderland boss Simon Grayson has told talkSPORT he is relishing the challenge of attempting to lead the Black Cats back into the Premier League.The 47-year-old left Preston North End last week to succeed David Moyes in the Stadium of Light hotseat, signing a three-year deal.Grayson admits he has a tough job on his hands rebuilding the recently-relegated club, but he is fully up for the fight and is confident they will head in the right direction under his stewardship.Speaking to the Jim White show, he said: “Anybody that knows Sunderland knows the size of the club, the facilities, the supporters are fanatical and speaking to many people in the game, you realise it is a great opportunity.“It’s not one that I’ve gone into thinking it is going to be easy because it certainly isn’t. It is very difficult for teams that have been in the Premier League to get promoted quickly back.“We have got a few players that have left the club and will maybe leave the club. As it stands we have got 11 first team players out here [at a pre-season training camp in Austria]… but it is a great opportunity. We have come in here, we are trying to change the mind-set around, get the players working hard, enjoying themselves, and let’s try and get this club back where it belongs.“You only have to get a few good results and then suddenly the whole thing can snowball and be very effective and go in the right direction.”Grayson says he will have a ‘realistic budget’ this summer and is attempting to put together a squad with the right balance of youth and experience.“We are probably not going to have the biggest budget in the division, but we are certainly not going to have one of the lowest,” he said.“We are going to work with the players we have got, we are going to work with the Under-23s to improve them and give the opportunities, but we are certainly going to be bringing in players in, whether that is loans from other clubs, permanents from other clubs, or frees.“It’s all about getting the right types into this club. There have been too many players in the past that have been here for the trappings of it all and the money.“We are working hard behind the scenes to secure a few deals and hopefully we are getting very close to some.“It is relentless in the Championship. You have to have a real strong mentality, a real desire, a fantastic team ethic and spirit to get you through difficult stages and that is what I have tried to create at all clubs I have been at and this is going to be no different.“The recruitment is going to be so important – we have to bring in the right players with all those attributes that hopefully make the supporters realise what we want to do and be proud again.”
