Youthful Muluya chases maiden Sharks’ title

first_img0Shares0000Kariobangi Sharks head coach William Muluya issues instructions during the side’s training session at the Utalii Grounds on October 17, 2018. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaNAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 19 – William Muluya will be leading his Kariobangi Sharks side to their second consecutive Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Shield final when they take on three-time champions Sofapaka at the Moi Sports Centre on Mashujaa Day.They played in their first ever final last year but lost 2-0 to an experienced AFC Leopards side, coming just a year after they finished third. Muluya, chasing a piece of history on his collar as the man to lead Sharks to their first ever major title wants nothing short but the Shield on Saturday.“The first time we were number three, last year we were number two and this year, the only place to go is number one. We have one choice and I think that is only winning the trophy,” the tactician said as he looks forward to the 3pm kick off at the lush green Kasarani Stadium.Sharks have had a relatively similar season to last year, but the hunger to cap it off with a trophy has been hugely evident and their 4-1 thrashing of Ulinzi Stars in the semis sent a huge statement that they are not just about to come in and enjoy being in the final.Kariobangi Sharks players warm down after the side’s training session at the Utalii Grounds on October 17, 2018. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaMuluya who began learning his coaching ropes at Mathare United and was the side’s team manager before moving to Sharks while they were still in the National Super League is keen to ensure he becomes the first coach to aid the side to a title.Looking at the team’s training sessions this week, the tactician is more than convinced they have gathered enough momentum to win and is confident his team will deliver.“Morale is very high and the boys are eager to play and win the final. The energy is very positive and sometimes when you can transform that energy to the match, it becomes easy,” Muluya noted.He says the team has matured better compared to last year and they are now a more improved team and they will definitely play better football against the three-time champions.History will favor Sharks as they have never lost against Sofapaka in their last six meetings including last year’s Shield Quarter Final which they won 3-1 at the Nyayo National Stadium.Kariobangi Sharks winger Harrison Mwendwa controls the ball under pressure from Vincent ‘Crucial’ Wasambo during the side’s training session at the Utalii Grounds on October 17, 2018. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaMuluya hopes history will favor them and continue their dominance against Batoto ba Mungu. They have won three of those six meetings and drawn the other three scoring four goals and conceding only once.“Sometimes history and the culture tells it all. Hstory favors us but we need to respect them (Sofapaka) because they are a good side with experienced players and a very good coach. I think whoever makes less mistakes will win the match and I know we will not have any room for mistakes,” the 32-year old tactician further stated.Muluya will have no fresh injury worries with the only absentees being goalkeeper John Oyemba and midfielder Sven Yidah who have both been long term absentees. Both though have started on-field rehabilitation.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Eight-goal Mazembe set CAF Champions League record

first_img0Shares0000Mohamed Nahiri scores the goal that gave Moroccan club Wydad Casablanca a CAF Champions League group victory over Lobi Stars © AFP / STRINGERJohannesburg, South Africa, Feb 2 – Democratic Republic of Congo outfit TP Mazembe crushed Tunisian visitors Club Africain 8-0 Saturday to achieve a record winning margin for a CAF Champions League group match. The five-time African champions overtook the benchmark set 18 years ago by ASEC Mimosas of the Ivory Coast when they overwhelmed CR Belouizdad of Algeria 7-0 in Abidjan. A few hours after Mazembe completed their destruction of Club Africain, the record was poised to be broken again as Al Ahly of Egypt charged to a 5-0 half-time lead over Simba SC of Tanzania.But the eight-time African champions failed to score during a goalless second half in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria. Mazembe ran riot in Lubumbashi just 14 days after suffering a three-goal hiding away to surprise Group C pacesetters CS Constantine of Algeria.The home side netted four times in each half in the mining town with Kevin Mondeka, Jackson Muleka and veteran Tresor Mputu scoring two each and Mika Miche and Elia Meschak one.Constantine top the table with six points, Mazembe have three and Club Africain none in a section reduced to three clubs after Ismaily of Egypt were disqualified for crowd violence.If Mazembe avoid defeat away to Club Africain in Tunis on February 12 they and Constantine will secure quarter-final places. Mazembe are among the favourites to win the Champions League along with trophy-holders Esperance of Tunisia, Wydad Casablanca of Morocco and Ahly. – Wydad win away –Amr Elsolia, Tunisian Ali Maaloul and Nigerian Junior Ajayi scored as Ahly swept into a three-goal lead and a Karim Walid brace stretched the advantage to five goals by the break.It was the second successive match in which Simba conceded five goals, raising doubts about their ability to go any further in the competition.Ahly, runners-up in the last two editions, top Group D with seven points, V Club of DR Congo have four, Simba three and JS Saoura of Algeria two.Saoura came from two goals behind to draw 2-2 with V Club in Kinshasa where Sid Ali Yahia-Cherif equalised one minute from time. Wydad became the first side to win away in Group A with a first-half penalty converted by Mohamed Nahiri earning a 1-0 victory over lacklustre Lobi Stars of Nigeria in Enugu.The Moroccans had a genuine penalty appeal rejected before Mohamed Ounajem was fouled and Nahiri sent Olufemi Kayode the wrong way from a 19th-minute spot-kick.Ahmed Tagnaouti of Wydad was the busier goalkeeper and did well to push away a Yaya Kone header before half-time on a scorching afternoon in southeastern Nigeria.Wydad squandered a chance to increase their lead midway through the second half as Kayode saved another penalty, taken by Ounajem.Mamelodi Sundowns and Wydad have six points with the South Africans occupying first place on head-to-head records having won 2-1 when the clubs met in Pretoria last month. ASEC Mimosas of the Ivory Coast and Lobi have three points each and need matchday 4 wins against the teams they were beaten by this weekend to get back in contention.Guinean outfit Horoya AC were rewarded for spending a week in Zimbabwe preparing to play FC Platinum when they won 1-0 thanks to a 51st-minute penalty from Marius Assoko in Bulawayo.Orlando Pirates of South Africa and Esperance, who played a drab 0-0 draw in Soweto, have five points each in Group B, Horoya four and Platinum one. 0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

My Donegal… with Erin from Coolest Place on the Planet

first_imgErin McGinty is marking one year since setting up her Instagram account @coolestplaceontheplanet to celebrate the best of Donegal.The Dungloe schoolteacher, who lives near Lifford, is passionate about travelling the county and sharing tourism and fitness journeys with followers online.In her own words, she explains why she was motivated to showcase Donegal as the ‘Coolest Place’: “I moved home last year having left Donegal at 17 to go to college and not returning for 15 years. Having lived and travelled from the US to Europe, Australia to the Middle East, South America to Asia I decided I needed to rediscover my own home county.“I’ve always loved running hiking and eating so I pretty much started doing all that on my own doorstep. I started documenting my travels and at the beginning it was mainly tourists following but now it’s mostly people from Donegal looking to discover everything we have,” Erin said.Grianan Aileach @coolestplaceontheplanetMy Donegal… with Erin McGintyWhere is your favourite place in Donegal and why?Grianan of Aileach has always been my favourite place, the views down over the Swilly and Inch Island are spectacular and on a clear day you can see right up to Fanad Lighthouse. I’m lucky that it’s quite close to me so many a day is spent there with a book and a coffee. How do you like to spend Christmas in the county?I spend it at home with all my family and friends, most of my family and friends are living away so Christmas is that special time when you get to reconnect and catch up with everyone over a drink, a hike or food.Who is the one person in Donegal that you look up to and why?As corny as it sounds probably my mum, she’s a Sligo woman that moved to Donegal at a very young age and fell in love with daddy. She’s made Donegal her home for 40 years and I’d say she’s hiked and walked more of it than me, she’s always on the go, always positive and always smiling.What do you think is Donegal’s best tourist attraction? From speaking with a lot of tourists over the last year of doing coolest place on the planet the main draw seems to be Sliabh Liag and I can see why having hiked it for the first time in May. It’s breath taking.Sliabh Liag @coolestplaceontheplanetDo you prefer Donegal summers or Donegal winters?Big call after the summer we just had but I definitely prefer the Atlantic and the coastline in general during stormy months, it’s so ferocious. I love the coastline along Maghery, Dungloe, Kincasslagh, Mullaghderg, I could watch the waves crash in there all day.Kayaking to the islands off KincasslaghWhat would you do on your ideal day out in Donegal? Follow my page and you’ll see lol – is your favourite Donegal-made product?I have a few McNutt of Donegal scarfs that I just adore. Donegal wool every time 💚Who is Donegal’s greatest ambassador around the world and why?Around the world it’s got to be Daniel O’Donnell, being a past pupil of my school he’s done a lot for the area and is so generous with his time. Plus everyone loves Daniel 😉Who is Donegal’s most successful businessperson in your opinion?John Magee and now the Temple family who own and run Magee 1866 .They are absolute adventurers too. Rosy completed the Wild Atlantic Marathon during the summer and is such an inspiration to follow, she can often be found at Mountcharles Pier for a swim with all the family. They have built a hugely successful global business and are the loveliest people, constantly giving back to the local community. And how could you not LOVE their suits.Wild Atlantic MarathonWho is your favourite Donegal sportsperson of all time?I could be in trouble here if I don’t say our very own Shay Given 😉 but seriously Shay is such an amazing sportsperson and ambassador for both Lifford and Donegal. Knowing Shay since I was wee, he is the loveliest, friendliest person who definitely hasn’t forgotten where he’s from and who has reached the absolute heights within his footballing career.What is your favourite Donegal saying or expression?I don’t know if it’s Donegal or just me but apparently it’s funny the way I say ‘wer jus goin for a wee bite to eat’When I lived away there were some confused faces at this conversationPerson: did you do much at the weekend?Me: Auk not a wile pileWhat is the biggest challenge facing the people of Donegal today?Promoting what we have within our own local county, we are absolutely blessed to come from this heavenly part of the world. We need to tell everyone to come here, and we as Donegalians need to see it all for ourselves…eat here, hike here, holiday here!Surfing at Backstrand Beach, FalcarraghWhat is your favourite Donegal food?Brown wheaten bread and potato bread 😋If you had a million euro to improve something in Donegal what would it be?The sign posting 😆 especially for well known sites like Muckish Mountain, Errigal, even Sliabh Liag. I would also have interactive information points dotted around the county as it can be hard (even when you’re from Donegal) to get information on how to get somewhere.Wild Atlantic MarathonIs there anything about Donegal that you are very proud of?A lot but some main things are:Fintown railway: Fintown runs it close for my favourite place but the wee train that runs in the summer is just so special and it’s run with such pride and history by the locals.Oakfield Park, Raphoe: the grounds are immaculate and the events they run throughout the year are just amazing. I had the pleasure of being at Oakfest in the summer and more recently the Santa express. Each time I visit I’m blown away by the staff, the stunning grounds and how much there is to do and see.Follow Erin’s Adventures on Donegal… with Erin from Coolest Place on the Planet was last modified: January 6th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare 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)Tags:coolest place on the planeterin mcgintyInstagramMY DONEGALlast_img read more


first_imgA man has been jailed for a total of four years for his part in the setting up of Donegal’s biggest-ever drugs factory.Yu Ye was jailed for four years. Pic by North West Newspix.Father-of-two Zi Yu Ye, 46, was caught at a massive cannabis factory outside Malin Town in Inishowen in October 2012. A total of €1.6M worth of drugs was found in the growhouse when it was raided by Gardai.Yu Ye appeared at Letterkenny Circuit Court yesterday charged with five counts of growing and sale and supply of the cannabis.The court heard how the father of two had been trafficked into the country to earn money to pay off debts back home.He thought he was going to work at a legitimate job but ended up converting a warehouse into a massive drugs grow-house for drugs bosses.Barrister for the accused, Mr Peter Nolan, said it was ironic that the President of Ireland was touring China talking about human rights when a Chinese man with no human rights was being jailed for growing drugs here.Mr Nolan said Yu Y was a victim of “modern slavery”.He added “It is ironic that we have President Higgins and Mrs Higgins in China today talking about human rights and walking the Great Wall of China, and fair play to them, and here we have a Chinese national in Ireland who doesn’t even know where he is on the map and he is the product of human trafficking and slavery, getting no profit for his efforts and being used and abused by others.“This man is an innocent likeable individual and not a criminal in the true sense of the word. He is more sinned against than sinning. He is a victim himself.”The warehouse outside Malin Town where drugs were discovered.Giving evidence, Garda Jason Conroy said the warehouse had been turned into a sophisticated cannabis-growing operation.Seven rooms had ben cordoned off to allow for the growing and also the drying of cannabis.When raided by Gardai, just over 18kgs of cannabis, worth about €360,000 was ready to be bagged and shipped out.Cracks in the walls of the warehouse had also been filled with expanding foam so nobody could hear what was going on inside.Yu Ye was not found on the premises until the day after the raid as he had been hiding.Passing sentence Judge John O’Hagan said Yu Ye knew exactly what h was doing.But he admitted that the major players behind the grow houses in Ireland are rarely caught.“I have yet to come across anyone in the courts who is a key person in relation to this activity,” he said.He jailed Yu Ye to four years for possession with intent to supply and another four years for cultivation, with both sentences to run concurrently and also backdated the sentence to when Ye was caught and detained two years ago.He added it was a matter for the authorities if Yu Ye would be deported when his sentence was completed.MAN JAILED FOR FOUR YEARS FOR HIS PART IN DONEGAL’S BIGGEST EVER DRUGS FACTORY was last modified: December 11th, 2014 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) Tags:courtdonegaldrugs factoryGardaijailedmain Townlast_img read more

People living in Gaeltacht areas have a right to speak in Irish. “The situation in Bunbeg obviously wasn’t acceptable but that has improved drastically and it is very welcome,” he said.He also revealed that Gardai have now agreed to allocate a percentage of recruitment places to applicants with fluent Irish.“All members of An Garda Siochana are expected to have a certain level of Irish.“However An Garda Siochana have now agreed that a certain allocation of places will be given to fluent Irish speakers.“These applicants will be then be posted to Gaeltacht areas across the country including Galway, Cork, Mayo and Donegal,” he said.

Industry solid, says former MPAA head

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake Valenti said he believes the trailing box-office receipts this year are only temporary setback. “We’ve heard it before, and this industry always comes back,” said Valenti, who retired this year as head of the Motion Picture Association of America. Valenti, a native of Texas, flew 51 missions over Europe in World War II. He worked for then-Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson and was in the motorcade in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963, when President Kennedy was assassinated. In 1966, he became head of the MPAA and developed the motion picture rating system, a voluntary code by moviemakers intended to head off governmental regulations. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who has made keeping film production in the city one of his top issues, said he decided to honor Valenti for his years of work. For 38 years, Jack Valenti was Hollywood’s voice in Washington, D.C., walking the corridors of power and fighting to protect the movie industry. On Friday, Valenti offered an upbeat perspective of the industry – despite a slow year – as he received a key to the city of Los Angeles for his efforts. “No matter what you see, Hollywood and the movie industry will always be there,” Valenti said. “No matter what technology emerges, it is still going to need a product that people want to see. “There might be problems this year, but it runs in cycles. This is still the greatest industry and is one where the balance of trade is in our favor.” “We don’t give out a key to the city often, and Jack Valenti was the first person who came to mind,” Villaraigosa said. “He has left an indelible imprint on American society.” Rick Orlov, (213) 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
