Murray’s late equaliser delays Waterhouse fate

Tag: 上海花千坊

first_imgAnother nail was just seconds away to being driven in Waterhouse’s Red Stripe Premier League coffin when substitute Rodave Murray, showing great predatory skills, buried an opportunity to draw his team level and possibly delay their inevitable relegation. Murray’s 90th-minute strike was his first in the country’s top-flight football, and it came in only his second game, following a strike by Kenroy Howell in the 23rd, as he gave his team hopes of pulling off a rare victory. Two second-half goals from substitute Chevonne Marsh in the 57th and Dawyne Smith in the 87th set up Cavalier perfectly for the win, until Murray’s late intervention. For Murray, the occasion was bittersweet. “This is my first goal, but it is my second match in the Premier League. My first match was against UWI FC. I am feeling great, but at the same time, I am feeling disappointed. The coach said to us that the aim is to get three points, but we should not leave pointless, and we left with a point, so that is good,” the 18-year-old Dinthill daCosta Cup star said. He added: “I am disappointed because we came out here today looking a victory, and we did not get it.” Though their chances of survival are being written off with each passing match, Murray is still hopeful. KEEP ON FIGHTING “There is still time and opportunity for us, we just have to keep fighting and working hard, and the rest of the competition will tell,” said the youngster, who scored 27 goals for Dinthill last season. Besides trying to help his team survive the drop, Murray, who hails from Orange Field in Linstead, St Catherine, wants to retain his place in the country’s Under-20 squad and earn himself a professional contract. “My dream is to take it to the pro level, so I am just working hard towards that, and good performances in this league will help. “I have been invited to Jamaica’s Under-20 squad, and my aim is to join the team, work hard, and ensure that we qualify for the World Cup,” the youngster explained. At 18, Murray still has another year of eligibility at the schoolboy level, but he could pass on it if the opportunity presents itself. “I have another year at the schoolboy level, but I am not sure if I will return as yet. If I get a professional contract, I will take it. I have had offers from Europe; that is where my agent is based, so we will continue to look until something suitable comes,” Murray said. Murray added that he came close to joining Montego Bay United in the January transfer window. “I was supposed to be with Montego Bay United, but it just wasn’t working out. They wanted me to go to Cornwall College and play for Montego Bay United, but I did not want to leave Dinthill as yet, and Montego Bay is so far away from home,” he said.last_img read more

The banks announced their joint funding initiative, which will be pumped directly into the national government’s budget, on 3 May 2011.This investment comes as the new government faces the task of introducing reforms that favour a democratic dispensation. Economic reforms in Tunisia are also in the spotlight as authorities have to create massive job opportunities and improve basic services.Tunisia’s transitional government was born from a citizen’s revolution that deposed long-serving President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, who gave up power in January 2011. He’d been President for 23 years.The Tunisian people’s revolution was closely followed by similar demonstrations in neighbouring Egypt and Libya, as well other Arab countries in the region. While pro-reform Egyptians managed to collapse former President Hosni Mubarak’s government, the conflict rages on in Libya between leader Muammar Gaddafi’s forces and pro-democracy fighters.Fouad Mebazza, the speaker of Tunisia’s parliament, is the country’s interim president. He’s set 24 July 2011 as the day the country will hold elections that will determine a constituent council. The national body will draft a new constitution and assume executive powers until presidential and parliamentary elections are held at a date yet to be determined.“The transitional government wants to increase equity, transparency, voice and accountability, and the World Bank can support the Tunisian people in their efforts to achieve these reforms,” World Bank President Robert Zoellick said in a statement.Cooperation between the banksAFDB’s President Donald Kaberuka met his World Bank counterpart Zoellick in Tunis, the nation’s capital, on 3 May, where the leading African funder’s temporary headquarters are located.The joint funding marks stronger cooperation between the two banks, AFDB said. “We are working very closely together to support Tunisia in this period of transition,” Kaberuka said in a statement.Zoellick added: “We are deepening ties with the African Development Bank.”Zoellick’s North Africa visitZoellick is currently on a special visit to Tunisia and neighbouring Morocco, and is expected to meet top officials of the Tunisian transitional government. He will end his visit on 6 May.The World Bank said Zoellick would also visit a rural municipality in Tunisia as well as one of the poorest areas in the country to meet farmer associations and women groups.His visit to an area that needs development is based on the identified need to empower such areas as well as cities, said the World Bank.“We are especially interested to see where we can help the most disadvantaged regions of Tunisia,” said Zoellick. “Modernisation and opportunity should not just be on offer in Tunisia’s Mediterranean cities, but also extend to the interior of the country.”Zoellick’s visit to Morocco will take him to the Deuxiemes Assises de l’Industrie, the country’s major industry conference. There he’ll take part in discussions on how economic and governance reforms contribute to development.The World Bank recognises Morocco as one of the North African countries that is succeeding in implementing important economic and governance systems.“Morocco has over the past decade pursued significant economic and governance reforms, and it is important that this momentum persists so that opportunity is provided to its disadvantaged and vulnerable citizens,” said Zoellick in his statement.last_img read more

Her pace in the first half suggested a finish time faster than the outright world record of 2:15:25, set by Paula Radcliffe in 2003.Keitany’s pace started to slip in the second half, but she still maintained enough form to stay on course to break Radcliffe’s women’s-only world record set in 2005.At 30km, she was 78 seconds ahead of her nearest challenger, three-time Olympic gold medallist Tirunesh Dibaba. The Ethiopian began to make inroads into Keitany’s lead in the final stages, but then suffered from stomach cramps just a few kilometres from the finish.Keitany held on to her lead and charged down The Mall to win in 2:17:01, the second-fastest time in history. Once recovered from her stomach cramps, Dibaba finished strongly to take second place in an Ethiopian record of 2:17:56, moving to third on the world all-time list.last_img read more
