FC Fassell and Watanga FC have been drawn against each other in the President’s Cup quarter-finals today’s opener in the second phase at 2:00pm at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium.Fassell narrowly defeated Joy Conquerors 1-0 and Watanga won Gardnersville 5-4 in a lottery shots after a 1-1 draw.Businessman George Kailando’s Jubilee FC meets businesswoman Mamie Kpoto’s Keitrace FC to climax today’s quarterfinals at 4:00pm.On Wednesday, BYC II, the only surviving 2nd division outfit in the tourney hosts Nimba United with LISCR FC versus BYC I, while defending President’s Cup champions IE take a bye.In today’s derby, the Fassell showdown emerged as the standout fixture for Tuesday’s game, and the rivalry between FC BYC and LISCR FC is generally considered to be the biggest in Liberian football as it was between traditional rivals, IE and Barrolle.Fassell’s coach Matthew Julutweh, 34, was dismissed after a very poor performance in the Coca-Cola Tournament, so this mean, he is inarguably under pressure to steer the team “to a good standing.”Newly promoted division club, FC Fassell is expected to face a stiff resistance from Watanga, who has been in the topnotch for over 12 years.Jubilee’s game against Keitrace would be the second under the administration of George Kailando since he took over.But Keitrace’s Mamie Kpoto remains the resilient female president and would not take chances against Jubilee.Tomorrow, at 2:00pm, Nimba United is expected to engage BYC II. The sudden resignation of head coach Sam Chebli, who guided the team back to top flight and second in the Coca-Cola tournament might have some psychological upshot on the players.Nevertheless, supremacy and experience might have to be used by the Mountainous to unleash the magic wand.In the second battle, LISCR is arguably the tie they did not want.Robert Larteh’s team has had the upper hand in recent meetings. Since 2014 BYC is unbeaten against LISCR. In the debut pre-season tournament, BYC eliminated LISCR 1-0. The victory came after a friendly encounter where the both sides settled 0-0.But LISCR latest performance against Mighty Blue Angels, which ended 3-0, sent a warning that tomorrow game could be thrice-a-preseason clásicos.According to reports, LISCR’s win is owing to an overhaul, but if Abraham Barshall’s red card isn’t level, his absence would cause difficulty in the midfield.However, BYC is still hopeful of five of their dependable players; namely Van Dave Harmon, Gideon Williams, Junior Barshall, Mark Paye and Alvin McCornell.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

For Senegal, Africa’s top ranked side, the ride to the final has encountered its share of bumps in the road but there is little doubt the showpiece at the 75,000-capacity Cairo International Stadium will feature the tournament’s two standout teams.A Youcef Belaili goal gave Algeria a 1-0 win when the countries met in the group stage, but this time there is no second chance with Cup of Nations immortality awaiting the victor.“If you get to the final, the aim is obviously to win it. The game in the group stage wasn’t decisive but now it is and that’s the difference,” said Algeria boss Djamel Belmadi.Senegal coach Aliou Cisse is on a mission for personal redemption as the skipper of the side beaten on penalties in the 2002 final, when his missed kick handed the title to Cameroon.“Having lost that final, I still have it on my mind,” said Cisse. “What motivated me to become a coach was to be able to take Senegal to the final. My players told me they would do better than my generation.”“Algeria are a great team and we respect them,” he added. “We’re in the final now and determined to win.”Liverpool star Mane is hoping to fulfil his “wildest dream” as one of just a handful of Africans to win both the UEFA Champions League and Cup of Nations.“I’m ready to even swap a Champions League for a Cup of Nations. Going to Dakar with the trophy would be extraordinary. It would be my wildest dream,” Mane told France Football ahead of the competition.Standing in the way, however, is an Algerian outfit that has undergone a remarkable transformation since the arrival of the straight-talking Belmadi as coach a year ago.– Senegal missing banned Koulibaly –Harambee Stars striker Michael Olunga goes up for an aerial challenge with Senegal’s Kalidou koulibaly during their Africa Cup of Nations Group C match in Cairo on July 1, 2019. PHOTO/CAFThe Desert Foxes crashed out of the 2017 edition in the first round and flopped badly in World Cup qualifying, but former Qatar boss Belmadi has healed divisions in the squad to lead his nation to the brink of a first continental crown on foreign land.“To the Algerian people, I want to say I’m not a politician, not a miracle worker or a wizard, but that we will fight like we have fought to this point,” Belmadi said after the 2-1 semi-final win over Nigeria.Algeria owed that victory to a stunning last-gasp free-kick from Mahrez, who is craving further honours here after a domestic treble with Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.“We are very happy to be in the final of the Africa Cup of Nations because it is something very special,” said Mahrez.“It was our goal to do it for the people and for our families. We know they are behind us all the way. It’s my dream to win the Cup of Nations.”It will be the first final to feature two local coaches since 1998, when Mahmoud El Gohary’s Egypt defeated Jomo Sono and South Africa 2-0 in Ouagadougou.Senegal had already lost first-choice goalkeeper Edouard Mendy to a broken finger and must now do without defensive rock Kalidou Koulibaly, who is suspended after two yellow cards in the knockout phase.The occasion will also mark the climax not only of Algeria’s campaign on the field, but of their fans’ recent political campaign in the stands.In April, long-standing president Abdelaziz Bouteflika resigned after weekly Friday protests against his expected candidacy for elections, and football fans have been heavily involved in demonstrations.Algeria will have the backing of an additional 4,800 supporters for the final. Some of them will arrive in Cairo on military planes organised by Prime Minister Noureddine Bedoui, who has also been a target of the demonstrations.0Shares0000(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Senegal’s Idrissa Gana Gueye celebrates his goal against Benin during their Africa Cup of Nations quarter final tie at the June 30 Stadium in Cairo on July 10, 2019.

DONEGAL HURLERS HONOURED BY DONEGAL COUNTY COUNCILAt a civic reception today in the County House, Lifford, the Donegal Hurling Team that won the Lory Meagher Cup in 2011 were honoured.Speaking at this Civic Reception the County Manager, Mr. Seamus Neely said that he was delighted that Donegal County Council had an opportunity to recognise this special and historic won for the Donegal Hurlers.This team reached the finals of the Lory Meagher Cup in 2009 and in 2010 but it was not until 2011 that the team achieved this victory with a 70th minute goal from Ciaran Mathewson securing this breathtaking win for Donegal. The Lory Meagher Cup is an annual hurling competition organised by the GAA since 2009 and is an extension of the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship, the premier knock-out hurling competition. The winners of the Lory Meagher Cup are promoted to the Nicky Rackard Cup competition the following year.This win was the first senior All-Ireland title for the Donegal hurlers and the Mayor of Donegal Cllr. Frank McBrearty remarked on the resilience of the team in their endeavour to win this cup which he described as ‘a lesson to all of us’. He stated that “their dedication to their sport, their training regime and their team work is a great example of what can be achieved by hard work, dedication and working together, these are all qualities that every one of us strive to achieve in our daily lives”.He added that the last week has been a great week for sport in Donegal, with the visit from the FAI delegation to the various clubs and communities in the county, to Donegal winning the GAA Ulster Championship yesterday (Sunday) to this Civic Reception for the Donegal Hurlers who win the 2011 Lory Meagher Cup. This week highlights the importance of sport in our communities and sport is one of two key themes that I have for my year as Mayor. Sport can bring great benefits for everyone in our communities in terms of breaking down barriers, in providing people with opportunities to meet, for children to play and for communities to work together for the collective good of their own area.Team Manager, Andrew Wallace formally accepted this presentation on behalf of his team which included Paul O’Brien, Shane O’Connor, Colm Breathnach (captain), Ardal McDermott, Jamsie Donnelly, Ciaran Dowds, Joe Boyle, Sean McVeigh, Paul Sheridan, Eugene Organ, Stephen Boyle, Ciaran Mathewson, Mickey McCann, Enda McDermott, Niall Campbell and substitutes Paddy Hannigan, Lee Henderson and Michael McGhee.

Receivers have been slammed for trying to seek an order committing a seriously ill Donegal builder to jail.Well-known and respected builder Brendan Gildea has been ill for a number of months.However receivers acting on behalf of National Irish Bank have today sought an order at the High Court to have him jailed amidst claims that €1.6 million was lodged into a bank account in the Isle of Man. Mr Gildea, of Magharennan, went into receivership a number of weeks ago.His assets were frozen after he failed to pay back debts of almost €6.4 million.Today’s order to have Mr Gildea jailed was refused.However solicitor Darren Gibson has slammed the tactics of the receivers in trying to put Mr Gildea behind bars. “Mr Gildea has tried to co-operate with the receiver to the best of his abilities. “These efforts aren’t essentially being accepted and these tactics are being engaged in by the receivers,” he said.He added that attempts to jail Mr Gildea were unprecedented.“These type of tactics in commercial life, in my view, are unprecedented. This gentleman is under sustained attack at his own family home.“The man is clearly very unwell. Both the courts, the National Irish Bank and the receivers have been put on notice of this situation,” he said.Mr Gildea is one of the best-known and respected building contractors throughout Donegal. He was responsible for building some of the most highly-regarded housing estates in Letterkenny and across Donegal in recent years.Despite suffering from ill-health for a number of years, he was regularly seen at construction sites where he was highly-regarded by his staff.EndsRECEIVER’S ATTEMPT TO HAVE ILL LETTERKENNY BUILDER JAILED SLAMMED was last modified: July 30th, 2011 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:BRENDAN GILDEAHIGH COURTRECEIVER
NAIROBI, Kenya – President Mwai Kibaki appealed to voters Sunday to turn out for today’s referendum on a draft constitution proposing how East Africa’s largest economy should be run and how much power Kenya’s president should have. The current constitution was written in the lead-up to Kenya’s 1963 independence from Britain and has been revised repeatedly, creating a unified state and giving the president sweeping powers. Previous changes only altered parts of the charter, and no referendums were needed. “When we go to cast ballots tomorrow, we shall be making a major decision that will change the lives of this and future generations,” Kibaki said in a national address. “I ask that all should turn out to vote so that the results reflect our collective decision.” Because a third of adults cannot read, voters will choose symbols – a banana for “yes” or an orange for “no.” Initial results are not expected until late today.
