Pay dispute is now behind us – Waite

first_imgCoach of Arnett Gardens Jerome Waite says that a recent dispute surrounding a cut to his players’ salary by the club’s management is now behind them.This follows his team’s exciting 5-3 victory over the University of the West Indies (UWI) FC in the Red Stripe Premier League yesterday in a match played at the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex in Trench Town.Arnett’s players and technical staff had a salary cut last October that many believe had a direct impact on the team’s struggles at that point. Things seemed to have indeed taken a turn for the better with the Junglists starting the year on the best possible note.The hosts raced to a 5-0 lead courtesy of goals from veteran striker Leon Strickland in the 7th minute, Lennox Russell (28th), Newton Sterling (30th), captain Oneil ‘Bigga’ Thompson (41st) and Marvin Morgan Jnr. (57th).TOO LATEUWI finally arrived to the party in the last half and hour of the game, scoring three times in the final 30 minutes with substitutes Patrick Brown (60th), and Kemar Daley (62nd) as well as Davion Garrison (89th) bulging the Arnett net. However, it was too little too late for the University team.Addressing the salary situation, Waite shared that things remained as they were as far as the cuts are concerned, but credited his players for their approach and focus.”It is as it was. We just have to focus on the team and forget about what happened,” Waite said.”The training went well during the week leading up to the game. We scored four goals in the first half, but in the last 20 minutes gave up three goals, so the fitness level needs to work on,” Waite assessed.Arnett did enjoy the better in the first half, but as their coach observed, they began to wane as the game progressed with UWI looking much improved in the second half.Despite the loss, UWI’s coach Marcel ‘Fuzzy’ Gayle commended his team for their fighting spirit.”I must commend the guys for the second half performance. We did not put away enough chances and Arnett did. We are looking forward to the next game,” Gayle said.last_img read more

Jamaica grooming junior triathletes

first_img PROMISING JUNIORS Sprint powerhouse Jamaica is quietly grooming juniors to be international triathlon athletes, following the lead set by Iona Wynter, who finished 34th at the 2000 Syndey Olympics. International Triathlon Union (ITU) coach Ina Daley recently travelled to Mexico City with junior triathlete Johnathan Lyn to participate in the Americas Triathlon Confederation (CAMTRI) Youth Olympic Games Development camp. The camp was staged at the National Centre of Development of Sports Talents and High Performance. It targeted junior athletes (born 2001-2002) and coaches ahead of the upcoming Youth Olympic Games 2018, Buenos Aires, Argentina. Daley, who has represented Jamaica at the Central American and Caribbean Games and the ITU Age-Group World Championship, said the camp was a success and she was excited with its goals. “I am excited about this programme with its long-term goals of raising the competitive level of athletes in the Caribbean and Central American region,” said Daley, who gained her ITU coaching certification last September in Mexico. “As a coach, it was a good learning experience and exposure to planning for the long-term development in the triathlon for both Junior and elite triathletes,” she added. Jamaica has no athlete in the World Triathlon Series ranking, which pits the world’s fastest triathletes, head-to-head, in Standard and Sprint-distance races, staged in iconic cities, for a chance to be crowned world champion. However, the island has two promising juniors, Lyn and Llori Sharpe, who have had about a year of exposure to the sport, Daley said. Sharpe, a 16-year-old St Andrew High School fifth-form student, finished 18th of 56 competitors at last September’s World Junior Championships in Mexico. She was the only competitor from the Caribbean and the first time Jamaica was sending a representative to the event. Sharpe was recently awarded the VMBS Youth Award at the RJR Sports Foundation National Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year awards. Pleased with the juniors’ progress, Daley recently founded a multi-sport club, Athlete’s Edge, “to bring structure and support to the development of the triathlon sport at all ages and levels”, she pointed out. “Working with the national federation is a priority to assist in structuring a youth-development programme. I want to attract the youth to this amazing sport and for them to see the opportunities to be gained. I also see it as a great family sport and one that can encourage health and wellness in the Jamaican community,” she said.last_img read more

Gibson-McCook Relays Watch | St Jago boys gets 4x800m edge

first_imgTwo years ago, a Kingston College quartet anchored by Twayne Crooks broke a long-standing record in the 4x800m relay after recording 7:34.78. Following an average performance last year, the North Street-based institution is unbeaten so far this season in the event with their biggest win coming at the Milo Western Relays, where in a close battle they got the better of St Elizabeth Technical. Following that defeat where the Kingston College anchor runner Teresa Rhoden showboated several metres before the finish line, ‘flashing off’ St Elizabeth Technical’s Ryon Butler, the defending Gibson Relays champions will be coming with blood in their eyes as they will want to return the favour by beating Kingston College in Kingston. It will, however, not be an exclusive battle between KC and STETHS as last year’s second place finisher St Jago High, Calabar and Jamaica College also have deep teams and are expected to do very well. 1. St Jago 2. KC 3. STETHS AVENGING DEFEAT In 2016, St Jago, after a big lead on the anchor, surprisingly lost when one of their top men, Lerone Clarke was gobbled up by STETHS’ Jevaughny James and the Spanish Town-based team will want to avenge that defeat. Their ambitions will be helped by the fact that they have three members from last year’s team back in the line up. Jamaica College and Calabar who both have several quality half-milers in their team, will definitely make this a very hot event and possibly the race of the meet. The record set two years ago by Kingston College could be in danger here, this one will excite and its good that for a change, the middle distance athletes will get some attention this time around.

Bournemouth Bath to get facelift

first_img ADDED ATTRACTIONS “We have done a lot of work, but there is still a lot of corrective work left. It is going to be a multiyear project, and we decided to phase the development. This year, we will focus on rehabilitating the pools for the summer so we can have some summer activities. We have finished the conference room, we are doing the amphitheatre, and the bathrooms are almost finished. All this should be finished by September, and by Christmas, we want to finish some other things,” he stated. Meanwhile, Green, who is funding the project singlehandedly, is seeking commitments to ensure the continuous usage of the facility, and he said that the residents have given their word to protect and maintain the complex. “We are seeking a strategic relationship with the Caribbean Maritime Institute, the University of the West Indies, and others for the utility of the pool, and as a feature of our arrangement and relationship with the community, they will have the place to host events,” he added. Green said that in the past, the pool was the only source of income for maintenance of the complex, but he believes that to keep it from returning to a similar state, more than swimming is needed. He added that the upgrade will include attractions such as restaurants, an amphitheatre, a board-walk, and a multipurpose court. “When you look at the investment in the pool and the possible returns, you see why it continued to fail. So we widened the scope to make sure we have sustainable involvement and activities, and we are looking at the three major components, arts, sports and entertainment,” he said. The pools at Bournemouth have been the centre of its history, and Green said that it would continue to play a major part in the facility’s activities. “We look at sports. We have a playing field and a netball court, which can be a multi-purpose court. The pool is very integral because it remains of major infrastructural value. The maintenance cost is very high, but in terms of engaging the youths and developing skills, it’s really a low-cost activity. They just need time, training, and maintenance of the pool,” he said. The former Jamaica Gasolene Retailers Association president said that like many citizens, he was concerned about the facility’s state, with windows shattered, electrical wiring looted, and bathroom facilities destroyed. The complex’s surroundings are also in need of bushing and are littered with faeces. However, after obtaining a lease from the Kingston and St Andrew Corporation earlier this year, Green has done extensive renovation and has set a two-year timeline to complete the project, but he is looking to complete it in phases. MORE CORRECTIVE WORK TO DO Leonard Green, the investor who has undertaken a multimillion-dollar renovation project at the Bournemouth Bath facilities in East Kingston, said a return to the old operational ways is what he describes as a “recipe for failure”. Green revealed plans to redevelop the facility into a multipurpose sports, arts, and entertainment complex, though the pool will remain an integral part of the transformation.last_img read more
