first_img MOVING FORWARD Jamaica College (JC) captain Allando Brown warned his counterpart Shevon Stewart and the entire St George’s College (STGC) team to expect a different outcome the next time they meet, after STGC’s 4-0 hammering of his JC unit in Saturday’s ISSA/Flow Super Cup final. Both schools have dominated local schoolboy football for the better part of the last decade, but you wouldn’t have been able to tell after STGC ambushed the former champions inside a packed National Stadium. While STGC looks forward to the Walker Cup final against Wolmer’s Boys, JC, which ended last season with three titles under their belts, will now put all their efforts into successfully defending the Manning Cup, and according to Brown, if they meet STGC along the way, the outcome will be different. FANTASTIC WIN “It’s always about guts. I came out here and did my best. Maybe it’s not as good enough, it’s still my best, I gave my hundred, maybe a 110 per cent. Expect more from Jamaica College going into the Manning Cup finals; we just have to use this loss as a stepping stone,” Brown said. “We lost one of our main trophies, but we still have the biggest one of all, the Manning Cup, so we are going out there and trying to defend our title,” Brown added. In the fast approaching Manning Cup semis JC is expected to meet first-time semi-finalist Denham Town, while St George’s College should play Jonathan Grant. Stewart, however, underlined that his STGC team is determined to grab all four titles this season – the Manning Cup, Walker Cup and Olivier Shield to add to their shiny new Super Cup crown. “It’s a very fantastic feeling to win like this knowing I missed two games and I came back in this one to play a very important role. It’s a very magnificent feeling right now. I have been waiting for this for a very long time. We see ourselves in all the finals this year, we are here now and we delivered,” said Stewart. He assisted Alex Marshall’s first goal and was their midfield engine before being substituted in the second half. “I want to win everything in my final year. We have always been a confident team, and coming out here and beating JC 4-0 is a great feeling, and we just have to go back in training knowing that we have three other Cups we can win,” he added.last_img

first_imgOpposition walkout… Opposition Leader says explanation “nonsensical”Responding to the claims made by the Opposition People’s Progressive Party (PPP) about their allegedOpposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo expressing his displeasure on Wednesday night at D’Urban Parkmistreatment at the recently held independence flag raising ceremony, Minister within the Education Ministry, Nicolette Henry, on Friday said the Party members left the D’Urban Park event while her officials were trying to have them seated together as requested.On Wednesday evening, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo expressed disappointment that his Party was left embarrassed when members turned up at the D’Urban Park arena to be a part of the activities, but could not because most of the Members of Parliament (MPs) were left standing without any seats.He said effort was made to correct the situation, but after some 30 minutes standing, nothing was done. They all dubbed the situation disrespectful, and the group, led by Jagdeo, walked out of the event.But on Friday, Minister Nicolette Henry, who had responsibility for the staging of the event, said the parliamentary Opposition was invited to all state events and confirmed its attendance to the flag raising ceremony.She said after accepting the invitation, the Opposition was briefed by her on Tuesday, May 24, on the time of arrival, entrance to be used and seating arrangements. Based on the arrangement, the Opposition Leader was expected to be seated in the Presidential Section with all other past Presidents and Prime Ministers. All other PPP members were to be seated in the other VIP section.According to Henry, the Opposition Leader did arrive, but not at the time he was expected to. He also used an entrance that he was not supposed to use.Explaining the details of what transpired on Wednesday evening, Minister Henry said Jagdeo arrived at 21:55h and used the South Western entrance (Hadfield Street).She said had it not been for the Police insistence on using the North-western entrance, this would have resulted in the Opposition and President Granger arriving on the tarmac at the same time.According to her, the other members remained standing in the passage and had indicated that they would only sit when they could be assigned seats together. However, according to her, this was not told to the usher.“Upon my arriving in the Presidential Section, the Opposition Leader indicated there were concerns with the seating. I assured him I will address this immediately, so I proceeded by personally asking other invited persons to give up their seats to ensure the Opposition members were all seated together.”She said as soon as the persons began to give up their seats, the Opposition walked out.“In the circumstances, I wish to state that as the organiser of this event, I apologise for any inconvenience, embarrassment or distress this incident may have caused”, Henry said in a statement on Friday.But Jagdeo, immediately told Guyana Times that the Minister’s response was “nonsensical.” In fact, most of the things she stated were untrue, the former Head of State said.Meanwhile, the PPP/C in a statement issued on Friday afternoon said that Minister Henry’s statement on the incident is “a poor effort to extricate the Government from the disrespectful treatment of the parliamentary Opposition.”According to the Party, the Minister seemed to have difficulty comprehending the issue at hand. “The Minister gave all assurances on May 24 to the Leader of the Opposition and a large group of PPP/C MPs and again on May 25, with the Chief Whip [Gail Teixeira] that seats for all PPP/C MPs and their spouses were reserved for the flag raising in the VIP section and that “we should not worry, everything was taken care of,” the statement said.According to the Party, the Minister was advised that the PPP/C MPs were attending the event in one bus to reduce any logistical problems.last_img
