Gone too soon – Lawrence remembers late Duncan as disciplined player

first_imgNational Under-15 coach Aaron Lawrence has described the untimely passing of national youth player Rushawn Duncan as a very sad day for the country’s football. The 14-year-old Duncan, who is from Cricket River in St Mary, was reportedly stabbed to death while playing a prank on his friends on Thursday. Duncan represented the national Under-15 team in three practice games in the Cayman Islands, in preparation for the CONCACAF Under-15 Boys’ Championship. Lawrence said that Duncan’s death came as a big surprise to many because he was always a disciplined player. “He was a quality player, one that could have helped Jamaica’s football for the future,” said Lawrence. “He played centre back, he played right defence, and I think he was somebody that could have made a difference in the Under-17s, in the Under-20s, and even the senior level,” he said. Lawrence added: “He was a man who had size, he had good work ethics, his attitude towards training was excellent and he never gave up. If we put him at right defence, he would go there and play, and if we put him at centre back, he would go there and play, and played to his best. He was more of a utility player.” Lawrence, who is also the coach of newly promoted Red Stripe Premier League side, Sandals Whitehouse, added that Duncan’s death came as a major surprise to everyone. “It is shocking, and it shocked us quite much because we were looking at him as a youngster to make the transition going forward,” Lawrence said. Meanwhile, the Jamaica Football Federation said in a media release that it regrets Duncan’s passing and expresses it’s deepest and sincerest sympathy to his family and peers. Young footballers who have passed away in the last two years: Jordan Foote – Holy Trinity High (March 2016) Dominic James – St George’s College and Waterhouse FC (September 2016) Okeem Forth – Olympic Gardens FC (April 2017) Jerome Christie – Pembroke Hall FC (April 2017) Rushawn Duncan – Jamaica U-15 and St Mary Raiders (August 2017)last_img read more

He, however, stated that the players went into the game over-confident and as a result only managed a 3-1 victory. Harris, Javian Thompson and Aaron Burrell were the scorers for the winners.”I think our players have a tendency to be complacent. However, Denbigh are a well-coached team,” Walters said.Glenmuir’s Harris has hit the back of the net seven times in just three games in the competition so far. Coach Walters believes the forward has the all the attributes of a good striker but says he lacks experience as this is his first year in the daCosta Cup competition.Yesterday’s resultslast_img read more

Windies in charge … Gabriel torments Bangladesh to lead WI assault

first_img MIRACLE NEEDED Armed with a huge lead of 363, West Indies quickly demolished the tourists’ top order, leaving the innings in shambles at 62 for six and in need of a miracle to avoid falling 1-0 behind in the two-Test series. Bangladesh trail by 301 runs heading into today’s third day with only four wickets intact. Gabriel, fresh off a 20-wicket haul against Sri Lanka, was again at the heart of the Windies juggernaut, snatching four for 36, while Holder chipped in with two for 15. Requiring a massive effort following their record-low 43 all out in the first innings, Bangladesh again found themselves hurt by the Windies quicks, as wickets tumbled spectacularly. West Indies had earlier batted themselves into an impregnable position after resuming the day on 201 for two. Starting the day on 88, Brathwaite raised triple figures inside the first hour when he cut pacer Kamrul Islam to third man for four, and was unbeaten on 121 at lunch with the Windies on 271 for three. However, Brathwaite failed to add to his lunch time score , dismissed off the fourth ball following the resumption when he was taken low at cover off left-arm spinner Shakib (2-71), with West Indies adding a single run to their interval total. All told, Brathwaite faced 291 deliveries in 61/2 hours at the crease and counted 11 fours. The Windies then lost two further wickets cheaply to slide to 288 for six as overall, three wickets perished for 16 runs in quick time.

NORTH SOUND, Antigua, (CMC): Opener Kraigg Brathwaite stroked his first hundred in nearly a year, while Shai Hope passed 50 for the first time in 13 innings, but it was speedster Shannon Gabriel’s devastating four-wicket burst which rocked Bangladesh and put West Indies on course for a comprehensive win in the opening Test. Playing on yesterday’s second day of the contest at the Vivian Richards Cricket Ground, West Indies piled up 406 all out in their first innings, with Brathwaite top-scoring with 121 – his seventh Test hundred but first since his 134 at Leeds last August. Hope, without a half-century since scoring one last October on the tour of Zimbabwe, chipped in with 67, while captain Jason Holder (33) and tail-ender Kemar Roach (33) produced breezy knocks down the order to add to Bangladesh’s pain.last_img read more

Windies in India for two-Test series

first_imgVADODARA, India, (CMC): The West Indies team has arrived safely in India for their two-Test series, which is scheduled to start on October 4. The Jason Holder-led contingent arrived here yesterday to a warm reception at the hotel after walking out of the bus amid drum rolls and witnessing traditional Indian music and dance. The two teams will also play five One-Day Internationals and three T20 matches. The Windies will commence the series with a two-day warm-up fixture against a Board President XI at the Gujarat State Fertiliser Corporation Ground in Vadodara on Saturday. Before their arrival in India, the West Indies had been forced to deal with several issues, including the resignation of former head coach Stuart Law and the departure of leading fast bowler Kemar Roach. Cricket West Indies announced on Monday that the 49-year-old Law would leave his post at the end of the year, following nearly two years at the helm, Law, who took up the post last year February, will now join English county Middlesex in the New Year as their new head coach on a four-year deal. Meanwhile, Roach was forced to return home following the death of his grandmother. A Cricket West Indies statement said Roach would not be replaced but would rejoin the squad in India following the funeral. He is the Windies’ most successful seamer, having played 48 Tests and taken 163 wickets. He is one of five pacers in the touring party along with Gabriel, captain Jason Holder, and the uncapped pair of Sherman Lewis and Keemo Paul.last_img read more

‘I am more than able’ – Young female jockey looking to make her mark

first_imgDespite her failure to record a victory from 11 mounts so far, female apprentice jockey Abigail Able is remaining confident that she will soon past the winning post in front. Able, along with fellow jockeys Tamicka Lawrence and Samantha Fletcher, are all waiting on their first victory in the saddle since they started riding on September 29. Able, whose best finish in the saddle so far was a third-place ride aboard BULLA two weeks ago, said she remains committed to and focused on her trade despite her limited success so far. “I will be passing that winning post in front very soon, so just look for me,” said Able. “It (win) is coming because I can feel it, and so I don’t feel any way.” She added that she have been improving a lot in the saddle and was determined to continue working on and improving her craft. “I am feeling like a normal jockey because I have seen a lot of improvements in myself so far in the saddle,” she said. Able also pointed out that she had a great deal of encouragement and advice from the trainers and male jockeys at Caymanas Park. “I always wanted to match up with the male riders, and so it is normal for me. I am just trying to do my best at all times whenever I go out on the track,” Able said. “They (male riders and trainers) have been giving me a lot of advice about how to do certain things, and I am very grateful for that because it has helped me a lot,” she said. Able has not secured any rides on tomorrow’s 10-race card at Caymanas Park. robert.bailey@gleanerjm.com MARKED IMPROVEMENTSlast_img read more

Peart: JC will rebound

first_imgAndrew Peart, the head coach of dethroned Manning Cup champions Jamaica College (JC), says said his team will shrug off the disappointment of losing their last match and rise to the occasion when they meet Cornwall College in tomorrow’s final of the ISSA/Champions Cup competition. JC, winners of the last five Manning Cup titles, were surprised 2-1 by St George’s College in Tuesday’s semi final at the National Stadium. Peart said they are now determined to put on a good show tomorrow in Montego Bay. “We have to use this game to get over the disappointment of losing in the semi finals of the Manning Cup and so the key thing to prepare the boys for Cornwall on Saturday,” said Peart. “I am confident in our team’s ability to rise to the challenge, as champions you may fall down but the defeat is not fatal and we have to use the situation on Tuesday to motivate us to do even better than we did there,” he added. The Dark Blues will be seeking their second hold on the title and Peart said his team is ready to regain the trophy. “There is no greater expectations than that which we have of ourselves. We want to do well and so we will be motivated and prepared to play,” he said. Cornwall College, who will face Clarendon College in this year’s daCosta Cup final, secured their place in the Champions Cup showdown with a 2-0 win over St George’s College.last_img read more
