Big job for Young

first_img – 3 p.m: Portmore United vs Boys Town – Juici Park, Clarendon – 3 p.m: UWI FC vs Cavalier – UWI Bowl, Mona – 3 p.m: Rivoli vs Humble Lion – Spanish Town Prison Oval – 3 p.m: Waterhouse vs Tivoli Gardens – Drewsland Stadium – 6 p.m: Arnett Gardens vs Harbour View – Anthony Spaulding Complex Paul Young Sr is not the product of a virgin birth, but he is being viewed by many as the equivalent of the football messiah, especially for Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) club Waterhouse, which he is expected to save. Having recorded the fewest wins, the most losses joint with 11th-placed Rivoli, scored the second fewest goals, only bettering the goal-shy Cavalier, and conced the third highest number of goals, a position they share with today’s opponents Tivoli Gardens, Waterhouse are really in need of a saviour. Young is an accomplished man, having distinguished himself at the high school, university and national levels as a player, and having followed suit at the club level, especially locally. This job, though, may just be his biggest yet as he has not before worked miracles. The much-travelled Calvert Fitzgerald failed to raise Waterhouse’s game from the dead. The loyal Anthony Patrick has since stepped in, but things have not improved at all. In fact, they are a little worse as the club is now firmly rooted at the bottom of the table after 16 games in the season. Young appears unwilling to speak about the current situation and what the future holds, but is perhaps taking inspiration from Humble Lions, who, last year this time, had less than 10 points, but ended up challenging for the title. Games between both teams have always been competitive and, according to Tivoli Gardens assistant coach Damion Gordon, this one could go either way. “History will play a big part in this game. Over the years, games between these two teams have been intense, and it did not matter where on the table one or both of the teams were,” Gordon said.

Maynes top Campion Charity Golf

first_img Excellent condition Gregory said he was happy for the victory. “The tournament was well organised, well ran and the course was in excellent condition,” said Gregory. “My daughter qualified this year for the National Junior Caribbean Championships and today was just testimony to the hard work that she has been putting in,” he said. On the other hand, 12-year-old Emily, who is a student at Campion, was very elated with her performance. “A lot of work was put in and, as my dad said, we worked together most of the time and he helped me to line up most of my putts and so I am very happy that we won,” Emily said. Meanwhile, Alveta Knight, president of the Campion College Home School Association, said this year’s event was a success. “The tournament was a success as we had a good turnout. Those who couldn’t come sent in sponsorship funds and so it was a good event,” said Knight. She added that the aim of the tournament was to raise over a million dollars to help with the needs of the school’s development fund, as well as any other social needs that may arise during the year. “I love the tournament because this particular fundraiser pulls together past and present and future Campionites and it allows them to really gel together,” said Knight. Meanwhile, the top Campionites team was Gordon Munn and Jodi Munn with a score 61, while the top adult and junior combination were Michelle Gabay and Michael Lowe with a score of 70. The father and daughter combination of Gregory Mayne and Emily Mayne emerged overall champions of the Campion College Home School Association Charity Golf tournament at the Constant Golf Club yesterday. The duo shot a 61 net to win the tournament ahead of Edjan Wiggins and Clive Chambers combination, who also shot a 61 net. However, Gregory and Emily came out on top after they shot a 31 on the back nine, compared to Wiggans and Chambers’ score of 32 on the back nine.last_img read more
