Moran made seven changes to his starting XI with Walsh one of those included from the start today. Sam Todd, Jack Blake, Laurence Toland, Ryan Varma, Chris Flanagan and Adrian Delap were the others elevated to the starting line-up.Walsh had been unavailable last night as he was in Dublin, where he was presented with a Gold Medal for Marine Gallantry, honouring his heroism in the Buncrana Pier Tragedy when he saved the life of four-month-old baby Rionaghac-Ann.The USL took the lead just after the half-hour mark as Walsh opened the scoring.After a fine move down the left, Laurence Toland whipped a dangerous cross towards the front post and Walsh expertly turned home.Midway through the second half, they doubled the lead. Having surged forward from full-back, Bonagee United’s Gareth Breslin was taken down in the penalty area and the referee awarded a penalty.Walsh stepped up and neatly tucked home to the goalkeeper’s right-hand side.Ulster Senior League: Harry Doherty (Cockhill Celtic), Gareth Breslin (Bonagee United), Conor Tourish (Letterkenny Rovers), Peter Doherty (Cockhill Celtic), Sam Todd (Derry City Reserves), Jack Blake (Derry City Reserves), Laurence Toland (Swilly Rovers), Ryan Varma (Cockhill Celtic), Chris Flanagan (Letterkenny Rovers), Adrian Delap (Derry City Reserves), Davitt Walsh (Fanad United).Subs used: Stephen Duffy (Derry City Reserves), Derek Doherty (Cockhill Celtic), Mark Moran (Cockhill Celtic).Results – FAI Intermediate Interprovincial TournamentFriday Ulster Senior League 3 Leinster Senior League 1Munster Senior League 1 Connacht 0SaturdayUlster Senior League 2-0 ConnachtFixturesSaturday, October 15 3.30pmMunster Senior League v Leinster Senior LeagueO’Shea Park, BlarneySunday, October 16, 10.45amLeinster Senior League v Connacht Ringmahon ParkMunster Senior League v Ulster Senior League    Turner’s CrossSoccer: USL panel in driving seat with another win in FAI Inter-Pros was last modified: October 15th, 2016 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)last_img read more

Varios jugadores de los Browns de Cleveland se arrodillan al escuchar el himno nacional de Estados Unidos en un partido de la NFL ante los Colts de Indianápolis, el domngo 24 de septiembre de 2017 (AP Foto/Michael Conroy, archivo)NEW YORK — The NFL says the message players and teams are trying to express is being lost in a political firestorm.The issues have been “overtaken by political forces,” NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said Thursday, referring to President Trump’s criticism of the league, team owners and players for kneeling during the national anthem.ADVERTISEMENT BSP sees higher prices in November, but expects stronger peso, low rice costs to put up fight More than 200 players either knelt or used other means as expressions of unity last weekend. Lockhart said such actions are not a protest against the anthem or the flag.“One of the impacts is to distort the views of the NFL and particularly our players,” Lockhart said.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutTrump said NFL owners fear their players, and he renewed calls for action against those who kneel duringthe anthem.“I think they are afraid of their players, if you want to know the truth, and I think it’s disgraceful,” he said in an interview that aired Thursday on “Fox and Friends.” He says “most people agree” with him. Silver expects NBA players to stand during national anthem Nonong Araneta re-elected as PFF president Frontrow holds fun run to raise funds for young cancer patients  On Thursday, Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker said he and his family have received death threats since he told fans not to come to games if they felt disrespected by NFL players’ protests. The Pro Bowl tight end shared the “heartbreaking” threats in a social media post.“The racist and violent words directed at me and my son only serve as another reminder that our country remains divided and full of hateful rhetoric,” Walker wrote. “These words of hate will only fuel me in my efforts to continue my work reaching out to different community groups, listening to opposing voices, and honoring the men and women in the Armed Forces who risk their lives every day so that we may have this dialogue.”Detroit Lions defensive tackle Akeem Spence said on Twitter earlier Thursday that his father, a contractor, was denied a job on a house because of his protest.

Full teams, along with some team owners, linked arms either before or during the anthem. Three teams — Pittsburgh, Seattle and Tennessee — did not take the field until after the anthem.“They are under attack now and the (original) lesson has been forgotten,” Lockhart said. “It is important for everyone to understand what they are talking about, to not see everything in terms of who is up or down politically.“The NFL players are men of character, many of whom are leaders in their community. They are patriotic, support the military. … They understand their platform can be used to make the country a better place.”Lockhart insisted there will be no “leaguewide directive” for future demonstrations.“This is an issue that should involve the owners of the 32 clubs, the coaches and players to work out together,” he said. “There is very regular dialogue going on between the players, coaches and owners. This is an issue that has sort of gripped the headlines. We all care very deeply about this.“All of our owners don’t always agree with even each other, and the players often have a position at odds with the league, and we work hard to resolve those,” he added. “We have been united on this issue. They are all pulling in the same direction, but we understand each locker room is different.”ADVERTISEMENT View commentslast_img read more

I started with four at the back, but we conceded too many chances,” he said.”I tried with the five at Newcastle and thought maybe this is good for us. But of course this shape is not dogmatic.”We can change and it’s good when you can change and the players understand we can change and why.

Scorpio Axes NineMonth Loss

first_imgzoomIllustration. Image Courtesy: Pixabay under CC0 Creative Commons license Monaco-based bulker owner and operator Scorpio Bulkers managed to shrink its loss in the third quarter of this year to USD 0.4 million, substantially down from USD 10 million reported in the same period last year.For the nine-month period Scorpio cut its loss from last year’s USD 58.7 million to USD 5.3 million as it reaped fruits from vessel demand spurred by the ongoing trade war between China and the United States.Namely, revenue of the company’s Ultramax vessels increased by USD 16.6 million year-on year to USD 39.7 million in Q3 due to strong South Atlantic grain activity, as U.S. tariffs caused Chinese buyers to continue buying large quantities of soybeans from the East Coast South America market extending the usual second quarter grain activity. In addition, strong coal demand from China benefited rates.Scorpio’s Kamsarmax vessels saw a revenue increase of USD 7.2 million from last year’s USD 15.5 million as a result of a sustained grain import program from China. With trade war narratives escalating this summer, Chinese mills were making sure they purchased as much grain as they could from other origins notably the East Coast South America market. This coincided with the increase in Indian demand for coal from all origins, especially South Africa, Scorpio explained.Total vessel revenues for the first nine months of 2018 were USD 177.3 million, an increase of USD 66.2 million year-on-year.“Despite the negative macroeconomic noise, such as trade wars and sanctions, Ultramax Operations and Kamsarmax Operations have remained resilient in the steadily rising markets and both were able to take advantage of premiums in the Atlantic driven by the strength of the fronthaul market from East Coast South America and the Black Sea to China and South East Asia, respectively, as well as the tightening of supply,” the company said.The results are being reported on the back of a major refinancing campaign of the company and a substantial investment in scrubber technology ahead of the IMO’s sulphur cap set to enter into force in 2020.last_img read more
