Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has told his Manchester United team that their primary goal this season has to be to get closer to Liverpool FC and Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table. The Red Devils finished third last term in Solskjaer’s first full campaign in charge as they secured a return to the Champions League for this season. However, Manchester United were way off the pace in terms of the title last season, with the Red Devils ending up 33 points behind champions Liverpool FC. The Red Devils have not been particularly busy in the summer transfer window so far, with Manchester United having only brought in midfielder Donny van de Beek from Ajax. Manchester United were boosted by the signing of Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon in the January transfer window as the Portuguese playmaker helped to inspire the Red Devils towards a third-placed finish in the Premier League. Solskjaer underlined his view that the Red Devils are capable of closing the gap to the top two teams in the league this term. “The next step is to move closer to the top two teams, let’s see how much of that gap we can close,” Solskjaer said.Advertisement “Realistically, the two teams in front of us have been way ahead of the rest, it’s a chasing pack and we want be the best of that chasing pack and who knows? Crazier things have happened in football. read also:Zaha double helps Palace beat Man Utd at Old Trafford “We’ll just have to start the league well and have to be consistent. I don’t want to take anything away from this group because we’ve added some top personalities. “We’ve got Dean (Henderson) in, you’ve got Donny, Paul (Pogba) is fit now, Bruno (Fernandes) came in and his first game was February 1 or something like that so he’s not been here long. “Eric Bailly as well has come back, he looks fit and really good so we hope we can move forward and who’s to say that we can’t?” Manchester United will take on Luton Town in the third round of the EFL Cup on Tuesday night.

People often wonder why some coaches are successful at a certain school while others are not. It usually has nothing to do with his or her knowledge of the sport that they are coaching. Most of the time it is the situation that presents itself.Some coaches simply don’t fit into the community. Through no fault of their own, their background differs so much from the community they are in that they simply can’t find their niche. To be successful, you have to sell your program to the young men and women you are coaching. In some cases, you may be too gruff for your athletes. In other cases, you may not be tough enough.There are many little things that come into play. You may be trying to replace a legend or you may enter a program that is so down that a John Wooden couldn’t succeed. As I stated earlier, the biggest thing about coaching is fitting into the program. If I knew the answer, I would write a book on it.
15 Mar 2017 Yorkshire golfer is England Golf’s Volunteer of the Year Yorkshire golfer Jenny Davies, who devotes countless hours to junior golf, has been honoured with England Golf’s Volunteer of the Year Award. Jenny, the junior organiser at Bondhay Golf Club, was presented with the award at last night’s England Golf Awards at Lord’s. The runner-up was Simon Bacon of Radcliffe-on-Trent Golf Club, Nottinghamshire. The Awards shone the spotlight on great moments and achievement at all levels of English golf and Jenny was honoured alongside Olympic champion Justin Rose, Masters champion Danny Willett and Solheim Cup player Charley Hull, as well as other players and heroes from the grass roots game. “I’m part of a phenomenal team and I’m accepting this for all volunteers,” said Jenny, who is featured in a specially filmed video. “It’s the strength of volunteers which makes golf such a great sport.” Jenny was a founder member when Bondhay opened 25 years ago and, although she likes to keep a low profile, she volunteers widely in the club and is also the vice-chairman. Her passion is for the junior section, which she revived four years ago, using her skills from a 40-year career as a PE teacher – and her enthusiasm for family golf. When Jenny first joined the club she involved her daughters, Jo and Becky; now Becky and her husband, Justin, are the club professionals and closely involved with the juniors. Jenny’s enthusiasm, coupled with support from other members, has created a section which has about 30 members playing on the main course and a flourishing group of beginners on the par three course. “There’s so much satisfaction is seeing the development of skills and also the growing confidence and ability to mix with people. It’s fantastic to be able to witness that,” said Jenny. The youngsters get excellent opportunities, both at home and away. Masters champion Danny Willett was a member of the club as a junior and has worked with Bondhay and two other local clubs to run Wee Willetts, offering a par three golf tour to youngsters without handicaps. Willett attends an annual presentation, most recently turning up in his green jacket and accompanied by Sky, BBC and ITV – to the delight of the youngsters. Bondhay is also one of six Dukeries clubs which play off in a competition for juniors with handicaps. At home, one of the highlights of the year is Junior Week, featuring five days of competition, with each main course event mirrored on the par three course. But Jenny doesn’t just focus on the juniors – she introduces their parents to golf as well and provides time for the adults to play at the end of junior competitions. Bonday Ladies’ Captain Pat Crabtree sums up: “She’s wonderful, it’s not just the juniors, it’s the whole club.” Click here to read more about the England Golf Awards Jenny Davies receives her award from England Golf Chairman Graham Yates (Image © Leaderboard Photography).
Donegal County Council has dismissed a claim that a high number of votes in the recent local elections in south Donegal were invalid.The claim was made by election candidate Diarmaid Doherty.Mr Doherty, who failed to win a seat, claimed that up to 80 papers in a bundle had been deemed invalid. He called on Donegal County Council to publicly clarify the matter.He said “I noticed that a significant number of papers set aside as inadmissible because they had not been properly stamped at the polling station. The bundle, in my estimation, may have contained 50-80 papers. These were ballots completed in good faith by voters, but because of failures by the polling centre staff, could not be counted.“Polling station staff should stamp each ballot paper before handing it to voters for completion, but in the case of these inadmissible votes, this did not happen for reasons unknown.“Was it as a result of inexperienced staff, poor training, human error or distraction, or was there a more sinister reason? “In an attempt to get answers to these concerns on behalf of the voting public who have cast their votes in good faith and not had their voices heard, I call on Donegal County Council to make clear statements to the public on the following points:1 Can you advise as to the total number of papers deemed inadmissible in the Donegal Electoral area due to being improperly stamped?2 Can you advise if these have been investigated to identify if there was a pattern – perhaps all from one voting box, perhaps from a number of boxes all manned by inexperienced officials?3 Can you advise what steps have been taken to ensure that this error will not reoccur?”He added that he has personally contacted the Returning Officer’s department on multiple occasions over the past 3 weeks, and has yet to receive any response or even acknowledgement of my communications. However, in a public response to Mr Doherty’s query, Donegal County Council outlined the situation including the number of invalid votes.A spoke,sperson explained “Donegal County Council can confirm that the total number of ballot papers recorded as placed in Polling Station Ballot Boxes in the Donegal Local Electoral Area was 14,318 and the number of papers deemed invalid for want of official mark was 18.”Council dismisses candidates’ claim over number of ‘invalid’ votes was last modified: July 30th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:councilDiarmaid Dohertydonegalinvalidvotes
No sooner had news spread about a treasure trove of animals in the jungles of Papua (see 02/07/2006 story) than scientists announced another in Neptune’s realm. The BBC News and MSNBC reported that “An underwater mountain with some of the richest diversity of marine life in the Caribbean has been found by scientists.” The seamount lies in the Netherlands Antilles in the Saba Atoll, third-largest coral atoll in the world. A group of international scientists including some from the Smithsonian participated in a two-week dive exploration of the area. Two new species of Goby fish and a dozen new species of seaweed added the excitement of discovery to the 200 species of fish counted, many more than the 35 previously known for the area. One new Sargasso seaweed has fronds bearing a resemblance to holly leaves. The mile-high seamount reaches up to about 24 feet below sea level in places and is crowned with coral and a rich diversity of colorful organisms.Here we are exploring the surfaces of other planets, and much of our own remains undiscovered. Neither of the news stories mentioned evolution, which would have been superfluous. Discovery and description do not depend on a tale of origins. Everyone can marvel at the color and diversity of these complex organisms in the present. The ocean remains one of the last frontiers, and the most vast on Earth. Little was known in ancient times, but enough for the anonymous author of Psalm 104 to speak awe-inspired of “This great and wide sea, In which are innumerable teeming things, Living things both small and great.” Perhaps this writer had visited the Mediterranean coast or Ezion-Geber on the Red Sea, and had heard mariners’ tales. Little did he know what was out there by experience – but his description still holds true today.(Visited 8 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
