GFA members elect former FIFA referee Otis James as new president

first_img‘Ready to take GFA forward’Former FIFA Referee Otis James has been elected President of the Georgetown Football Association (GFA) following the hosting of an Extraordinary General Meeting held yesterday morning at the Pegasus Hotel.Sunday’s successful meeting was necessary as a result of the continued lack of activity and non-functional Executive Committee in the GFA over the past three years.This lack of activity prompted the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) to intervene as the parent body for the sport in Guyana to ensure that the administrative arm of the game in the city became functional again.A GFF appointed IMC came into being in July of 2018 in accordance with the guidelines and provisions of Article 2 [d] and [e], Article 13 [a] of the GFF Constitution and Article 82, in addition to Article 8 (2) of the FIFA Statutes.Following the work of the Trevor Williams-led IMC, which was even granted an extension, the GFA Clubs, in a letter dated 8th October, 2019, in accordance with Article 31 (2) of the Constitution of the (GFA), requested an Extraordinary General Meeting of the GFA and this was set for Saturday, November 2, 2019.Members present at yesterday’s Extraordinary General Meeting were Georgetown Football Club, Beacon Football Club, Northern Rangers Football Club, Camptown Football Club, Black Pearl Club, Eastveldt United Football Club, Pele Football Club, GT Panthers Football Club, Riddim Squad Football Club, Wolves United Football Club and Order and Discipline Football Club.GT Panthers FC (new club) and Order and Discipline FC (list of delegates submitted after the legal deadline had expired) were not able to vote.Conducting yesterday’s election was the Guyana Football Federation Electoral Committee’s Chairman, Charles Corbin and Rev. Raphael Jackman. Prior to the Electoral Committee taking over proceedings, the Extraordinary General Meeting was chaired by GFF Third Vice president, Thandi McAllister.James, in his first speech as president, expressed thanks to the GFF and everyone who had worked hard towards ensuring that the Extraordinary Meeting came off which now sets the pathway for the association to get back to a state of normalcy after being dormant for about three years.“This is the time, it is now or never.Within the next three months we will see the work that the new GFA has to offer, so let us all put our heads together and work together for one cause, football.Many times we have football and a lot of people look around and say that that should be done and this should be done; gentlemen and ladies, it is time for us stop trying to be whatever we want to be and do the right things we are supposed to do.It is time for us to put all our differences aside and work together as a team and let football be the winner.”The full executive: Otis James – President, Akram Sabree – Vice President, Clifton Adams – Vice President, Dirk Exeter – Vice President, Fizal Khan – Secretary, Lomel Johnson – Treasurer and Penny John – Assistant/Secretary Treasurer.last_img read more


Largest crowd since 2000 packs into Carrier Dome for Clemson game

first_img Published on October 6, 2013 at 2:33 pm Contact Stephen: sebail01@syr.edu | @Stephen_Bailey1 Jerome Smith had just scampered 66 yards for SU’s first touchdown when the defense held Clemson to a third-and-1 from its own 33.With Tigers quarterback Tajh Boyd calling an audible from the pistol formation, Syracuse defensive end Micah Robinson and outside linebacker Cameron Lynch began waving their arms up in the air.The crowd got loud, as it appeared that Boyd’s receivers on the right side were unable to hear the play call. And when Boyd took it on a designed run, Robinson broke into the backfield and brought Boyd down for no gain.Clemson would punt, giving the Orange a chance to cut into its 21-7 deficit early in the second quarter.“We asked for the crowd to be the 12th man today, and they were,” SU head coach Scott Shafer said. “They were great. We had a huge showing today. I was so proud to run through that tunnel and see our fans, our community, our students out there representing us and wanting us to be what we want to be.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textA crowd of 48,961 packed into the Carrier Dome on Saturday to watch SU’s (2-3, 0-1 Atlantic Coast) Atlantic Coast Conference debut, the largest crowd since 2000. While they gradually trickled out after halftime of the Orange’s 49-14 loss to No. 3 Clemson (5-0, 3-0), there were times when the Dome was as loud as it gets during conference basketball season.The fans exploded early following Lynch’s third-down two-handed swat on a Boyd pass, and arguably even louder after Riley Dixon booted an SU record 75-yard punt.Said Shafer: “I just want to make sure everybody understands I’m so happy and proud of this community.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more


Panel considers future of Trump presidency

first_imgPanelists discussed the aftermath of the 2016 presidential election and speculated about the next four years under a Donald Trump presidency at the “Road to the White House: Final Thoughts” event at the Davidson Conference Center on Tuesday evening. Dan Schnur, director of the Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics, co-moderated the panel with Daily Trojan Editor-in-Chief Matt Lemas. The panel featured: Tim Clark, Southwest U.S. political coordinator at Donald J. Trump  for President; Brian Calle, vice president and opinion editor for The Orange County Register; Bill Burton, California managing director for SKDKnickerbocker; Wendy Greuel, a commissioner on the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority’s Board of Commissioners; Ben Austin, board member for Students Matter; Mary Perez, vice president of the USC College Republicans; and Anthony Boulahoud, finance director for USC College Democrats. “My interaction with Trump is fundamentally the interaction that you have with the CEO of an organization, and I believe that what you’re going to see from President Trump is a CEO,” Clark said. “My interaction has been with somebody who has a hunger for knowledge for this organization, someone who has a knowledge for what potential fixes are, is looking at data and making decisions.”Calle conveyed more skepticism than Clark for the potential change the Trump presidency can bring. “There is potential for Donald Trump to be a very good president; there is potential for Donald Trump to be a very bad president. There is potential for Donald Trump to be the last president,” Calle said jokingly. “But my sense of Donald Trump is this: I think [he] is going to moderate himself and measure himself a little bit. Donald Trump has a brand that people are familiar with, so I think Donald Trump is going to be Donald Trump.”Calle added that Trump has already started to take a less brash approach to politics, a change from his campaign trail persona. For Calle, that is a positive sign of more changes to come.Perez explained the need for Republicans and society as a whole to develop a more inclusive mindset.“Going forward, we want to craft a message that says, ‘hey, we are the party for all people, for all Americans, we want to represent all minorities, all races, all religious practices, all sexual orientations,’” Perez said. “But, at the same time, we don’t want to lose sight of working class, white-collar Americans who came out for Mr. Trump and their interest in the equation too. They’re an important part of our electorate.” Perez added that there needs to be an end to labelling those with conservative views as xenophobes, bigots and racists. “I know that there are [xenophobic, bigoted and racist conservatives] out there, but if we can unify and work together without labeling people, that’s going to be the most constructive and important thing that we can do continuing forward,” Perez said.Boulahoud emphasized the necessity of unity after the election and how the party should continue to strengthen.“We need to move forward and we need to progress together. And we believe that means starting at the local level and working our way up,” Boulahoud said. “We probably need to lean more towards the center, so that we can bring people together. That’s probably the best thing to do.”Greuel addressed the surge in hate crimes that have taken place in the aftermath of Trump’s victory.“I think that Donald Trump is starting to stop the different things that are happening,” Greuel said. “[This is] a very critical time for our future and the diversity of our country to say we are a nation of a lot of people. When you get elected president of the United States you represent those that voted for you and those that did not vote for you,” Greuel said.last_img read more


Trojans need past to become present

first_imgHistory is on USC’s side. Recent history, that is.If anyone has learned anything from the trend of losses to inferior, unranked opponents, it’s this: One loss does not end a season. Usually.Somehow, some way, a strange brew of events over the last three years seems to give one-loss USC a shot at getting back in the national title picture.Last year was an odd case. The voters and computers and everything else determined that USC’s one loss was worse than Florida’s one loss.That is, a loss on the road on a Thursday night against a good Oregon State team after a blowout win over another BCS contender was worse than a loss at home to a good Mississippi team.Scheduling Virginia, Ohio State and Notre Dame in non-conference games apparently carries less weight than Hawaii, Miami, the Citadel and Florida State.But I digress.So, two out of the last three years, one loss didn’t end the Trojans’ season.Three years ago, the 6-0 Trojans were teetering on the edge with each passing week. They beat three straight conference opponents by an average of 6.3 points before the wheels fell off in Corvallis with a 33-31 loss to Oregon State.But that didn’t end USC’s title hopes.No, the Trojans were back in the national title picture a few weeks later, and all they had to do was beat UCLA at their place.13-9, and that was done. But it was the second loss — not the first — that did USC in.What about the next year, 2007? A 4-0 USC team falls 24-23 at home to Stanford.But with the rallying cry that one loss doesn’t decide USC’s fate, the Trojans rebound with a 20-13 victory over Arizona and a 38-0 drubbing of Notre Dame in South Bend, Ind., led by backup quarterback Mark Sanchez.Only after the 24-17 loss in Eugene to Oregon were USC’s national title hopes officially laid to rest.So how was this made possible? Let’s just say that ESPN’s college football motto is, “Every week can change the season.”In 2006, being ranked in the top five was a curse. Texas, LSU, Notre Dame, Auburn (twice), Florida, USC (twice), West Virginia, Louisville, Michigan and Arkansas all lost in that position.In 2007, more of the same. Appalachian State delivered the keynote address with its stunning victory over Michigan in Ann Arbor.Florida, Oklahoma (twice), West Virginia (twice), USC, Wisconsin, LSU (twice), Cal, South Florida, Boston College, Arizona State, Ohio State, Oregon, Kansas and Missouri all lost while ranked in the top five.See where this is going? This year, the Trojans have already been joined by Oklahoma and Oklahoma State in the top-five-teams-that-get-upset category.Yes, the Sooners lost because quarterback Sam Bradford was injured. But the Trojans were without Matt Barkley and Taylor Mays (if you ask me, one of the more underreported reasons for losing the game) in Seattle.Injuries played a key role in 2007, when No. 2 Oregon went to Tucson in mid-November, only to see quarterback Dennis Dixon injure his knee and the Ducks’ national title hopes disappear.Injuries happen; they’re the great equalizer. They’re impossible to predict, and often devastating.That’s not to say that injuries will continue to play a significant role in this season’s title game chase, just that they might. They’ve happened before, and they can happen again.So recent history is on USC’s side. But the history being written right now? Not so much.The Trojans still have to run the gauntlet of ranked Pac-10 opponents on the road, which doesn’t even take into account the game in South Bend in a month.They have to do with inexperience at quarterback, youth on defense (although that has yet to be an issue) and problems on special teams (which is a topic for an entire story itself).So can it be done? Yes. The chips have been in place before. But will it be done? Let’s just say that a lot has to happen.Luckily for USC, a lot has happened in the past.“Thrilla on Manilla Paper” runs every other Thursday.

USC drops its second home game in a row

first_imgLooking to avenge their 61-42 loss to No. 9 UCLA on the road earlier in the season, the USC women’s basketball team came out scoring at a much faster pace on its home court Sunday.But the end result was the same, as the Women of Troy dropped their fourth straight game to their crosstown rivals, 74-67.Not enough · Coming off the bench, senior guard Jacki Gemelos finished with a team-high 16 points Sunday, but the Women of Troy were once again outdone by their crosstown rivals. The loss drops USC to .500 on the year in conference play. – Tim Tran | Daily Trojan “It was a heck of a basketball game. UCLA proved why they’re the No. 10 team in the country,” said USC coach Michael Cooper. “I have to commend our team, these young ladies were playing their hearts out. If nothing else, we made [UCLA] shake a little bit.”The game marked the fourth loss for the Women of Troy (13-8, 5-5) in their last five games, and their second straight at home.The teams traded baskets throughout most of the first half, with three lead changes and four ties.With the score deadlocked 14-14 with 9:53 remaining in the first half, it looked as though it would be a defensive battle between the Pac-10 foes.But both teams started a flurry of scoring before halftime.The Bruins (19-2, 9-1) relied on offensive rebounding and second-chance points to stake out a 37-33 halftime lead.Senior guard Darxia Morris and junior forward Jasmine Dixon both scored well above their point per game averages, with Morris (12.5) scoring 24 points while Dixon (12.1) chipped in 23.Dixon briefly left the game with 2:23 remaining with a shoulder injury.But she returned before halftime, laying in a basket with less than a minute remaining to give the Bruins their largest lead of the game, 37-29.“[Dixon] is a solid post player. She works hard for every point she gets.” said USC junior guard Ashley Corral.But the Women of Troy managed to keep up with their rivals, forcing a couple of turnovers in the final minute of the first half to close the deficit to 37-33.UCLA came into the game with the better statistical defense, but USC forced the Bruins into 17 turnovers in the game while committing only 14 of their own, most of which came in the last few minutes of the game.“Once we got across half-court, we handled their trap [defense],” Corral said. “I didn’t think their pressure affected us a whole lot. I thought we did a lot better [than last time].”Senior guard Jacki Gemelos led the Trojans in scoring with 16 points, and kept USC within striking distance throughout the game.“I just found the open gaps and took my shot when it was open,” Gemelos said.Gemelos converted her third three-pointer of the game early in the second half to bring her team within one point, 45-44.She finished with a team-high 16 points off the bench.After that, the teams traded scoring runs. The Bruins went on a 12-4 run to gain their largest lead of the game.But the Women of Troy refused to collapse, responding with a 12-5 run to close the deficit to 62-60 with 3:56 remaining in the game.But the Women of Troy couldn’t quite regain the lead. With more than a minute remaining, UCLA collected a crucial offensive rebound while up 66-62.“When you play a top-10 team, it’s about the little things,” Cooper said. “Obviously, the way we were outrebounded [37-25] didn’t help.”USC junior guard Briana Gilbreath fouled Bruin guard Doreena Campbell, who calmly converted both free throws.The Trojans turned the ball over on their next two possessions, nailing their own coffin and sealing the game for the Bruins.The Women of Troy now sit at fifth place in the Pac-10, half a game behind Arizona State and California, which own 6-5 conference records.USC continues the second half of conference play with trips to Oregon and Oregon State next week.______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________last_img read more

When will Dodgers’ prospect Walker Buehler be ready to blossom?

first_imgLess than three years after he was drafted in the first round and almost immediately underwent Tommy John surgery, Buehler is expected to break into the Dodgers’ rotation at some point this season and begin to fulfill the potential that comes with a high-90s fastball and electric pitch mix.“I think he’s in position to help us win games this year,” Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said. “When that is, I don’t think we know yet. But I think he’s in position to do that.”There are plenty of unknowns with Buehler – as there were with Urias. Foremost is how much of a workload the Dodgers can expect him to handle.Friedman is reluctant to set any target for starts or innings, saying there are too many factors potentially in play. But Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said in a best-case scenario, 140 to 150 innings “is potentially attainable” for Buehler this season.“If he’s healthy,” Roberts said. “If Walker is healthy, good things are going to happen for him and for us.” Dodgers’ Corey Seager deals with another spring of sickness and setbacks Yu Darvish makes Cubs debut lighter after ‘what happened in the World Series’ After All-Star season, Dodgers’ Alex Wood made changes looking for more consistency Some day Urias and Buehler might be in the same rotation. For now, Friedman said there is only so much that can be gleaned from the experience with Urias that can benefit the Dodgers as they try to prepare Buehler for the big leagues.“They’re unique. They’re different,” Friedman said. “From an industry perspective, every team is on a race to continue to learn more and be able to individualize pitcher progressions even more. We know more today than we did three years ago. We’ll know even more three years from now than we do today.“Last September was a great experience for him. And that was part of the thought process. A worst-case scenario and he doesn’t help us and make our playoff roster, the experience will serve him well and help him going into 2018. That’s exactly what we got out of it.” Cubs score six in first inning, beat Dodgers in Yu Darvish’s spring debut Unlike Urias, Buehler’s has not been a slow build. Signed as a 16-year-old, Urias had 222-1/3 innings over three minor-league seasons before he debuted in the majors in 2016. Two years older, Bueher has a college career behind him. But he has just one full season as a professional – and that ended with him pitching in the major leagues with a chance to make the Dodgers’ postseason roster as a reliever.Major-league hitters were not impressed with Buehler’s lofty prospect ranking. He allowed eight runs on 11 hits and eight walks in 9-1/3 innings last September.“This is a different level. It just is,” Buehler said of the lesson he learned. “Those guys are really good. You have to kind of understand more what guys are trying to do against you as opposed to what you can do. Because they’ve seen it all. It doesn’t matter how good you are. They can get you if you make a mistake – even if they’re just sitting on the right thing in the right spot.”Buehler remains fully loaded with confidence. But last September also chastened him enough to shape his answer when asked if he feels ready to step into a major-league rotation this year.“I don’t know. There’s parts of it that are different,” he said. “It’s hard to look back on a September where I had a 7.00 ERA and be, ‘Oh, I can go out and win 20 games.’ But I think getting back to starting and kind of getting back to being myself, all of that helps.“We’ll see. I feel good about it. I feel good about myself on the mound. But there will be ups and downs to it, I imagine, if and when I get to pitch up there.”Upper back tightness provided the Dodgers with good cover to ease Buehler into things this spring. He was almost two weeks behind most of the starting pitchers in camp in hitting the early-spring markers. But he did pitch an inning in a “B” game against the Chicago White Sox on Monday.GM Farhan Zaidi has already said Buehler is not a candidate to open the season with the Dodgers, raising the possibility of some of the “slow-play” hints from Urias’ spring a year ago – time in extended spring camp, a slow buildup in the minors.“We had some dialogue last year in terms of the schedule I was on as far as going five starts on, one start off,” said Buehler who pitched 88-2/3 innings at three minor-league levels last year. “That was something that had been discussed and figured out so they kind of got me ready for it. That’s the flip side of being slow-played. Last year, I was really slow-played compared to anything they could do to me this year.“That’s above my pay grade. That’s their job. My job is to get outs in whatever city they stick me on a mound. I’m good with that. … I’m 23. I’ve got some time to kind of feel it out and get as good as I can be to where when I get the chance to do it (in the major leagues) I can do it. That’s about all I’m worried about.”Related Articles PreviousDodgers relief pitcher Walker Buehler throws against the Colorado Rockies during the eighth inning of a baseball game, Thursday, Sept. 7, 2017, in Los Angeles.

(Photo by Kevin Sullivan/Orange County Register/SCNG)ExpandGLENDALE, Ariz. — They are the orchid bulbs of baseball development – delicate, high-maintenance. But, oh, when they blossom, they are a sight to see.The Dodgers have had two blue-chip pitching prospects in a row to nurture and try to develop into big-league starters. They handled left-hander Julio Urias with care, putting innings limits and pitch count restrictions on him, even using an elective eye surgery as a means to shut him down for a long stretch of the 2015 season.That seed has yet to take. The 21-year-old Urias is not expected to pitch until late this season (if at all in 2018) after undergoing serious shoulder surgery last summer.Now it’s Walker Buehler’s turn.
