  • Flyers drop season opening game to Grande Prairie

    first_imgHead Coach Gerard Dicare says the team was down a few players for the game and started off slow, however managed to play well in the final two periods even though they fell short.“We ended up going down there with a little bit of a short bench we were missing a couple of key guys,” he says. “We started out pretty slow, then the last 40 minutes we picked it up a little bit and just fell short at the end with the empty net goal.Despite the loss, one of the things Dicare was pleased with was how the team did on the penalty kill. He acknowledges the team has to avoid penalties, but was satisfied the team was able to do what was needed when they were a man down.- Advertisement -“Our penalty kill, not so much us taking penalties I think we took eight minor penalties, but our penalty kill did really well,” he explains. “We played really aggressive on it. I believe we didn’t allow a powerplay goal so that was a positive.”Scoring for the Flyers were Robbie Sidhu, and Trevor Fitzgerald, and the assists went to Bryan Lewis, Robbie Sidhu, Trevor Fitzgerald, and Wes Reusse. Next the Flyers welcome the Dawson Creek Canucks to Fort St. John for their home opener at North Peace Arena. The game starts at 8:30 p.m.last_img read more

  • Jagdeo calls out Govt GECOM Commissioner for spreading misinformation

    first_img…says CJ never said GECOM must use data generated from H2H for verificationSpeaking at his press conference on Thursday, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo responded to a number of inaccurate statements made by Government-nominated Commissioner of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), Vincent Alexander.Opposition Leader Bharrat JagdeoIn an invited comment to the State-owned Guyana Chronicle, published on Thursday under the headline “No decision on way forward”, Alexander is reported to have said that Chief Justice (ag) Roxane George, in her ruling on the challenge to House-to-House Registration, stated that the House-to-House Registration should be used for verification, rather than for a deletion of names from the list.This was disputed by Jagdeo, who pointed out that the Chief Justice never said that GECOM must use data generated from the House-to-House Registration exercise for verification, and he quoted paragraph 178 of her ruling to support this.Paragraph 178 of the Chief Justice’s ruling says: “Thus, whatever verification or revision exercise is undertaken to ensure a fair and credible election, whether house-to-house or otherwise, for the preparation of the list of electors for national and regional elections consequent on the NCM, must be conducted in the context of the order of the CCJ of July 12, 2019, that the provisions of Art 106 immediately became engaged on the passage of the NCM on December 21, 2018. This means that the election should have been held on March 21, 2019, that is within 3 months of the passage of the NCM or such extended date as approved by two-thirds of all the members of the National Assembly”.GECOM Govt Commissioner Vincent AlexanderFurther, he explained that paragraph 128 of the ruling deals with how the House-to-House exercise can be used to verify a first-time registrant – not to de-register persons that are already on the National Register of Registrant.Jagdeo was also critical of the Guyana Chronicle, which he accused of peddling falsehoods, when in a section of the same article it was stated that, “House-to-House Registration is a new registration exercise, and all eligible persons must register, even if they were previously registered, the elections management body stated. Upon conclusion of this exercise, a new National Register of Registrants Database (NRRDB), which is reflective of the current Guyanese population, will be created”.The Opposition Leader quoted three paragraphs of the Chief Justice’s ruling that point to the unconstitutional nature of a House-to-House Registration exercise to remove the names of persons from the NRR if they are already registered.These are paragraphs 141, 161 & 174:Paragraph 141 states that: “A reading of all the relevant provisions leads to the inevitable and ineluctable conclusion that GECOM does not have the discretion without more to remove the name of a person from the list of registrants or electors because such a person who was previously registered has not re-registered during a house to house registration exercise”.Paragraph 161 states that: “GECOM would have no legal authority to remove or de-register such persons who are otherwise qualified unless such registration can be cancelled…these persons may have to return to their districts to vote, but their names cannot ipso facto be removed from the register of registrants, which removal would then disqualify them from and deprive them of their right to vote. To do so would be unconstitutional and therefore illegal”.Paragraph 174 states that: “This is to say, where persons are already registered, it would be unconstitutional if they are removed for the sole reason that they now reside in another jurisdiction or as I have pointed out, another part of the country vis-à-vis where they reside as regards their place or district of registration in Guyana where they would be able to vote.The same would apply if it is that they are simply not present for whatever reason when the registration officer or enumerator visited or visits. Once they fulfil the criteria in art 159(2) and are already registered, they are entitled to remain so unless it is proven that they are deceased or have become disqualified or that art 159 (3) or (4) applies”.Further, Jagdeo concluded that since the House-to-House Registration, with the intention of creating a new database will be unconstitutional, the exercise must be immediately halted and that GECOM has to go to the time-tested and non-controversial method that served to refresh the List of Voters for the last four elections – that is, a Claims and Objections period.The Opposition Leader also cautioned against using data from the 270,000 persons GECOM claims to have registered, since no one knows how many are first-time registrants and it will take months to find that out. Jagdeo added that the data obtained will be suspect since the process was not scrutinised by the Opposition and may very well have been illegally obtained since the statutory forms were not used.He stressed that with Claims and Objections, new registrants will have an opportunity to register as first-time voters, among the other transactions that such an exercise allows.On the subject of timelines, the Opposition Leader said that he has seen a proposal from the three Opposition-nominated Commissioners which indicate that elections can be held by late October.He also said that before the appointment of current Chairperson, Justice (retired) Claudette Singh, proposals for the holding of elections had always coincided with those publicly stated by Congress Place. As such, he urged that any new timeline put forward by the Secretariat must be thoroughly scrutinised by the new Chairperson as it may be bloated.last_img read more

  • Congress is trying to sabotage country’s security: Prakash Javadekar

    first_imgThe Congress is trying to sabotage the security preparedness of the country by raking up the Rafale deal issue despite the Supreme Court saying there is no need for a probe, Union Minister for Human Resource Development Prakash Javadekar said here on Saturday. “Supreme Court has clearly exposed the falsehood of Congress and given a clean chit to the deal by saying no further inquiry is needed. Still if Congress persists, the only conclusion that can be drawn is that they want to anyhow stop the deal which will weaken the security preparedness of the country. We will never allow this to happen,” Mr. Javadekar told reporters on the sidelines of the 31st convocation of Goa University.“This is nothing but sabotage for our security preparedness. We have already said that Rahul Gandhi owes an apology to the nation, to the defence forces and Lok Sabha also,” he further said, adding, “the BJP was willing to discuss the Rafale fighter craft purchase in Parliament.” He however, blamed the Congress for demanding a joint parliamentary committee(JPC) probe without discussion. “Congress lies have been exposed on the issue of Rafale, but they are still lying and there is no reason. When the Supreme Court said there is no need for a probe, they are asking for JPC. The reality is, the Congress is trying to baulk at efforts being made to strengthen India’s security,” Mr. Javadekar said.last_img read more

  • Which FA Cup team will run out to I Fought the Law? Met Police, of course

    first_imgShare via Email They train twice a week and play home games at Imber Court in East Molesey, one of the areas which fell out of the Met’s jurisdiction at the turn of the millennium. Just over 100 supporters attended their last home match, against Farnborough, with more than 10 times that expected against Newport. This Cup run has made a club who make a loss each matchday feel like kings, having pocketed £55,000 and counting.Nevertheless, drawing fans to their ground, between Hampton Court and Sandown Park racecourse, has been a struggle. “I don’t know what the magic formula for that is,” MacPherson says. “It has traditionally been very difficult to attract people. It’s a lovely place to come and watch football but the name of the club and the fact it’s not a town maybe makes it more difficult for people to identify with us.”Fifteen years ago they reached a tipping point, faced with permitting non-police personnel to play or folding. “We couldn’t get a goalkeeper for love nor money and it was no good playing at that sort of level in the Isthmian League without a goalkeeper of substance,” the chairman, Des Flanders, says. “It became impossible really to field a team of policemen as we had done and wanted to continue to do. We realised the writing was on the wall.”The manager adds: “Sometimes when kick-off came people were still travelling or finishing up with things at work. It was not only that struggle of getting players there, but players having worked nights or having two or three hours’ sleep before getting up and travelling long distances to games.” They may no longer be a works team but they have not lost sight of their history. The legacy lives on in the boardroom, with the club run by a four-man managing committee of former senior officers, including Flanders, a former deputy assistant commissioner in south-west London, and Victor Olisa, a former chief superintendent and the former borough commander of Haringey, a post he took less than two years after the 2011 riots there.Since opening the club to all, they have built a structure akin to any other team. An emphasis on youth has been particularly rewarding, with the first-team players Ethan Chislett, John Gilbert, Louis Birch and Nesta Guinness-Walker all graduates from the youth side. “We went into a transition of what I describe as a community club,” Flanders says. “We have 26 junior clubs, from under-six to under-16s. We also have a substantial youth-team setup and we have had some joy in the FA Youth Cup over two or three seasons.” Share on Twitter features Twitter Metropolitan Police FC, a team shrouded in myth and misunderstood in some quarters, are dreaming. The seventh-tier side, mid-table in the Southern League Premier Division South, host Newport County on Saturday hoping to reach the FA Cup second round for the first time in 99 years, when they were formed as a works team, part of a recreational department for the force’s officers and staff.No ordinary team, there are plenty of quirks. The running of the club is funded by a £1-per-ticket weekly lottery for staff past and present and at home games they walk out to The Clash’s version of I Fought the Law. “It is a fantastic tune to run out to,” says the manager, Gavin MacPherson, whose assistant is the former Barnet winger Jon Nurse. “I don’t take a lot of notice at what other clubs do but most clubs certainly take notice of ours.” “A lot of people have said to me ‘enjoy your day’, which almost signifies to me it will come, it will go and we might not get it back for many years,” the manager adds. “We are not going into it like that, we are going in planned and prepared, and seeing if we can bridge the three-division gap on the day. The enormous size of the task is not lost on me.” Read more If you look at the some of the boys who turn up to up to play for the Met Police without any concern, it’s brilliant Pinterest Facebook Share on LinkedIncenter_img The Fiver: sign up and get our daily football email.

Photograph: Lee Ludlow/Metropolitan Police FC Share on Pinterest Reuse this content Olisa adds: “People say the police do not get on with young people, that there is a clash and they don’t understand young people, but if you look at the some of the boys who turn up to play for the Met Police without any concern or ambivalence, it’s brilliant. It’s a seamless collaboration of different people working together under the brand of the Met Police football club.”They have not had a serving policeman in the team since 2012, when PC Craig Brown had to miss their previous first-round tie, against Crawley Town, having used up his annual leave. Also gone are the days of tours to Hong Kong, Barbados and beyond. Four players are on small contracts while the rest claim travel expenses. The squad includes electricians, estate agents and a male model. In years gone by players have joined the police as a result of signing for the team. MacPherson’s father, Christopher, was the longstanding kit-man until last season and will play a lament to mark Remembrance Sunday as the teams walk out of the tunnel. Only after that, and a minute’s silence, will The Clash sound. Christopher MacPherson was appointed as piper to the Queen Mother in 1999 and played on her 100th birthday in the Clarence House gardens. Share on Messengerlast_img read more
