Sean Sandilands side got off to the worst possible start when they conceded inside the first two minutes. Benny Bonner delivered a free kick to the back post where Luke O’Farrell was on hand to power a header past Darren Smyth. Bonagee settled after this early setback, and could have equalised in the 17th minute when Jason Ashmore tested Paul McCauley from distance. Drumkeen got their second of the game from a Eunan Kelly penalty in the 29th minute, after Glen Rainey upended Richie Moore inside the area. Bonagee began the second well and they could have reduced the deficit in the 53rd minute, this time Aidan McLaughlin’s shot went inches wide of the post. They did eventually score in the 80th minute when McLaughlin scored from the spot after Ashmore was tumbled inside the penalty area. This set up a nervy final ten minutes for Mickey Rodgers men, but they managed to hold out to maintain their 100% start to the season. Team performances from both sides.Group BDerry City Res. 0Cockhill Celtic 1 Cockhill now have full points from two games when Gerry Gill scored on 72mins in a very close encounter. The away side had the first chance on three minuteS when Houghton pulled off a good save from the speedy Jude McLaughlin. Not many other chances of note in the first half with both defences outstanding. With just over 50mins played Gazza McLaughlin had a chance from a Gill corner but headed over. On the hour mark, Kyle Curran went close from a McNamee through ball. The major talking point was on 64mins when young centre back Conor Barr got sent off after bringing down his opponent when through. The Referee had no other option but issue the card. It was back to the wall stuff now from the home side and Houghton pulled off another great save from a Keddy header. With 18mins remaining Gerry Gill shot through a crowded goalmouth to score what ended up being the winner. This young Derry side tried hard to get back into the game with winger Josh Tracey floating over a few crosses, but to no avail. Good performances from both sides with Eoin Barrett outstanding in the Derry defence.FixturesNo 4 Lanterns USL Games next weekend due to Knockalla Cup q-finals.Knockalla CupKildrum Tigers V Derry CityGlengad v AileachDrumkeen Utd V Swilly RoversFanad Utd.

Delphi to consolidate plants

first_imgDETROIT – Auto supplier Delphi Corp. said on Tuesday that it hopes to emerge from bankruptcy protection early in 2007 and that the process will include the consolidation or divestiture of a significant portion of its U.S. plants. “We are here to deal with our legacy liabilities in the U.S. … trying to address high legacy” cost issues, an attorney for the company told Judge Robert Drain in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court of the Southern District of New York. He added that much of the supplier’s profit is generated abroad and that “we don’t make money on what we produce here in the U.S.” The judge signaled early in the hearing that he would extend an order allowing Delphi to continue paying salaries and benefits to employees. A temporary order to do so was granted Saturday, when the auto supplier filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection from creditors. That order was due to expire at the end of Tuesday’s hearing. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “It makes sense to extend” the order, the judge said. Attorneys for the company also defended the recent extension of a severance package for executives, saying the company had sought “non-compete” agreements from them to protect its business interests. Delphi beefed up the severance agreements for 21 of its top executives on Friday, the day before it filed for bankruptcy. Under the new agreement, executives will be eligible for 18 months of pay and at least a portion of their bonus if Delphi lays them off or they leave voluntarily. Previously severance packages were capped at 12 months. In exchange, the executives signed agreements promising not to work for competitors for the 18-month period. Separately on Tuesday, the federal agency that insures pension plans said the bankrupt auto supplier’s pension plan is underfunded by $10.8 billion. The amount takes into account any assets the company already has in the plan, Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. spokesman Jeffrey Speicher said. Delphi could shift some of its pension obligations to the PBGC as part of its restructuring. But Speicher said the PBGC would insure no more than $4.1 billion, or less than half the total necessary to meet Delphi’s obligations to retirees. General Motors Corp., which spun off Delphi in 1999, also could be liable for some of Delphi’s retirement benefits. GM said this week it may have to assume up to $11 billion in retirement benefits for union-covered employees who transferred from GM to Delphi. Delphi is the largest U.S. auto supplier. It has 50,600 U.S. employees, including 34,750 hourly workers and 15,850 salaried workers. The New York Stock Exchange suspended trading of Delphi shares Tuesday. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
