Angel flies home to land Chartwell

first_img Press Association Irish raider Lily’s Angel wrestled the Chartwell Fillies’ Stakes from French hope Kendam in a cosmopolitan gathering for the Group Three at Lingfield. Lyons’ brother and assistant Shane said: “Her pure class has got her through. She absolutely hated the ground and she was wheelspinning, but in fairness to Gary, he got her balanced and took his time. “She’s in the Ballycorus at Leopardstown but she wants better ground and the Windsor Forest (now Duke of Cambridge Stakes) is in our minds.” Another Irish challenger enjoying a fruitful passage across the Irish Sea was the Tommy Stack-trained Scream Blue Murder, who got up close home under Wayne Lordan to land the Listed EBF Weatherbys Hamilton Insurance Kilvington Fillies’ Stakes at Nottingham. center_img Lily’s Angel (4-1) is a credit to the Ger Lyons’ stable, stepping up from a Kempton Listed win to scramble past Kendam by a short head. “She was really struggling in the ground and it took her a long time to get going but she finished well,” said jockey Gary Carroll. last_img read more

FA sheds light on Riether incident

first_img Press Association An FA regulatory commission dismissed Fulham’s argument however and imposed the ban. New rules will come into force on November 22 allowing retrospective action in all cases, even where incidents have been partially seen. The findings of the Riether case reveal that Fulham hired former FA compliance officer Graham Bean to argue their case. The report by commission chairman Stuart Ripley states however: “The commission felt that a distinction could and should be made between these two incidents in that the stamp made by Mr Riether on Mr Januzaj was one of a series of ‘comings together’ involving a number of players in a melee as opposed to the isolated ‘coming together’ of Mr Torres with Mr Vertonghen which involved just the two players. “The referee clearly states in his written match report that the act of stamping was ‘unseen by any of the match officials at the time’ and having viewed the DVD footage of the incident the commission had no reason to disbelieve the referee given his position, distance from the melee and the fact that his view was likely to have been obscured.” Meanwhile, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes the FA’s new rules should prevent players thinking they can get away with being a “killer” out of sight of referees. He said: “I am 100 per cent (supportive), because you wouldn’t like to think that somebody could escape dangerous play just because it hasn’t been seen well by the referee and misjudged by the referee. “This sacrosanct rule that once it has been judged by the referee nobody can come back (and be punished) means you could be a killer just because the referee doesn’t have the perfect angle to see what you did. “I completely support that and the players knowing that this can happen will only improve the situation.” The German defender was suspended after accepting a Football Association charge of violent conduct for stamping on the Manchester United player during last Saturday’s Barclays Premier League match at Craven Cottage, which the visitors won 3-1. The Cottagers had challenged the FA’s right to deal with the case retrospectively, arguing it was similar to that involving Chelsea’s Fernando Torres when he escaped action for scratching Jan Vertonghen because an official had seen part of the incident. center_img Fulham’s Sascha Riether was banned for three matches for stamping on Adnan Januzaj because none of the match officials saw the actual stamp, the full findings of the case have revealed.last_img read more

Other Sports India to face Malaysia, women meet Japan hockey team in Olympic Test openers

Both the Indian teams have secured their places in the FIH Olympic Qualifiers, to be held later this year, by winning their respective FIH Series Finals. Being world no. 5 and the top-ranked side in the tournament among men, India start as favourites against world no. 12 Malaysia. The Indians have rested seniors like skipper Manpreet Singh and goalkeeper P R Sreejesh, opting to test some young players.  In Manpreet’s absence, dragflicker Harmanpreet Singh will lead the side while striker Mandeep Singh will be his deputy. Malaysia have time and again showed their capability by upsetting big teams like India at the continental level. It all started back in 2010 when Malaysia stunned India 4-3 with a last-minute goal at the 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games semifinals.  The Malaysians inflicted another agony on the Indians in the semifinals of the 2018 Asian Games, and then too, they conceded a last-minute goal in the semifinals to enable their rivals to draw level and win the encounter 7-6 in a dramatic penalty shoot-out.  But, in their last outing at the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup earlier this year, India defeated Malaysia 4-2. Overall, India boast a formidable record against Malaysia. In the last 10 meetings between the two Asian rivals, India have won six, while Malaysia only managed three victories.  “We are looking forward to our first match against Malaysia tomorrow. We have had some good tough training sessions in both brand new stadiums. Historically, we have had some grand battles against Malaysia and I don’t see tomorrow being any different,” India’s chief coach Graham Reid said.  After Malaysia, the Indian men will play world no. 8 New Zealand on Sunday and world no. 16 Japan in their last round-robin match. Meanwhile, the 10th-ranked Indian women’s team will have a relatively easy opener against Japan. Then, Indian women will face their toughest test in world no. 2 Australia, before facing world no. 11 China.  The Indian women will take heart from the fact that they beat Japan 3-1 in the final match of the FIH Series Finals in Hiroshima this year. But Japan hold a slight edge over Indian women in the last 10 meetings between the two teams. While Japan have managed four victories, India have won three with three matches ending in draws.  “We are looking forward to a good start at the Olympic Test Event. This is a great opportunity for us to play against strong teams, and it will give us the chance to see where we need to improve ahead of the crucial FIH Olympic Qualifiers later this year,” Indian women’s team’s chief coach Sjoerd Marijne said.last_img read more

Lukaku: Man Utd Move from Everton a ‘Perfect Opportunity’

first_imgRomelu Lukaku has revealed that he did not have to “think twice” about moving to Manchester United from Everton as it represents “the perfect opportunity”.The 24-year-old striker is set to sign for United for an initial £75m, despite former club Chelsea matching the bid.“It’s a club that is hungry to win the league again, to be dominant in the world again,” Lukaku told ESPN, who say they spoke to him after his medical.“It’s the sort of opportunity I’ve always wanted since a child.”Lukaku is in the United States and was arrested in Los Angeles last week following a noise complaint. He is due to appear in court on October 2. The transfer for him, initially reported by BBC Sport on Thursday, is believed to include £15m in add-ons.Chelsea tried to re-sign the Belgium international but were not willing to match the fees Lukaku’s agent, Mino Raiola, would earn if the forward moved to Old Trafford.United said on Saturday they were “delighted” to agree a deal.“When they came calling I didn’t have to think twice, so I’m really delighted to be part of history,” said Lukaku.“Who would say no to the biggest club in the world? The best stadium in England, the best fans. I mean, it’s the perfect opportunity.“I always said I wanted to play for a team that’s challenging for every trophy that there is there. I think Manchester United at the minute wants to be the dominant team, the dominant force.“Now it’s time to work hard, work harder than I ever did before and I’m willing to do it.”United manager Jose Mourinho was manager of Chelsea when they sold Lukaku to Everton for £28m in July 2014.The Belgian scored 25 Premier League goals last season, and United have been chasing him for most of the summer.A deal was concluded yesterday before United depart for a pre-season tour to the United States on Sunday.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

“It’s Unfair” To Drop Rashford For Martial – Gary Neville

first_imgFormer Manchester United defender, Gary Neville has expressed his opinion that dropping Marcus Rashford to the bench in place of Anthony Martial is “unfair”.Anthony Martial have been in fine form this season despite not starting any of United’s two Premier League games, scoring twice and providing an assist.Speaking to Sky Sports, Neville laid emphasis on Rashford’s work rate, saying: “Martial has been devastating when coming off the bench but there’s no doubt he’s coming on against teams that are tired.”19y 205d – Marcus Rashford is the youngest Englishman to start a major European final since Gary Mills for Nottingham Forest in 1980. Youth.— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) May 24, 2017“He’s a brilliant finisher, his composure is brilliant. It’d be unfair for him to come in at the expense of Rashford, if you look at his work, his dribbles, his sprints.”Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has named 19-year-old Rashford in both of United’s 4-0 wins against West Ham and Swansea with the Englishman failing to put his name on the score sheet.Manchester United are top of the Premier League table after two matchdays, scoring eight goals and conceding none.RelatedMarcus Rashford: The Man For The Big OccasionsMarch 11, 2018In “England”Pogba Scores Brace as United Get Third Straight WinDecember 30, 2018In “England”Mourinho Is Not The Right Coach For Rashford – De BoerMarch 12, 2018In “England”last_img read more

James Watson – Betradar – My ICE 2017

first_img Esports has had some year and it won’t be slowing down in 2017. Nor will Betradar, which fresh off the back of a deal with Dojo Madness, are prepped to have a manic year. James Watson is Head of Esports at Betradar so will be leading the charge. You can catch up with him at ICE Totally Gaming (S1-150) next month, and we took a moment to ask about his ICE experiences and routine.James Watson, BetradarSBC: How I prepare for ICEJames: Preparation for ICE this year has been pretty intense – mainly as we’ve been putting the finishing touches on our esports tournament showcase, the Betradar Esports Invitational. For those who haven’t had the pleasure of organising an esports event before, it’s not as easy as it sounds!Other than that, we haven’t really stopped preparing since ICE last year. As we sit at the intersection between betting, digital media, integrity and audiovisual content, a lot of our focus has been around positioning esports properly in each of these unique market sectors and engaging properly with our clients to pass the right messages onwards to the community.SBC: What I’m doing at ICE 2017James: After the announcement of our DOJO Madness partnership back in November, we’re looking to showcase how live betting should really be working for an esports event. We’ve invited two of the top UK Counter-Strike teams to play a series of matches throughout the show, which we will pair alongside our newly released Live Odds product. Naturally we’re inviting anyone with an interest in esports betting to come and pay us a visit at S1-150 to see what it’s all about.Our aim is to change the way the industry approaches live betting in what is still a new, and sometimes intimidating space. We share the thoughts of our clients that the current market live offer is not up to the same standards as other more mainstream sports; it’s time to put an end to that.SBC: What I’m looking forward to at ICE 2017James: ICE deserves its reputation as the most important date in the trade show calendar and I expect this year will be no different. It’s one of very few opportunities throughout the year to catch up with a lot of business friends in a short space of time, meet a whole host of new personalities and check out what’s new in the sports betting space.Naturally I’ll be casting a keen eye on anything esports related and am looking forward to the innovation that others are making in this space.SBC: Where you will usually find me at ICEJames: Typically I’ll be networking with clients and partners at the Betradar stand, S1-150, but you’ll also find me exploring the floor and checking out the new and innovative products on offer at the show.SBC: Favourite ICE memoryJames: Last year’s ICE was a pretty memorable one for me. At the start of 2016, esports was a fresh buzzword on everybody’s lips and there was a lot of excitement around the recently launched Betradar esports product suite when we took it to ICE. Not only did this open up some new friendships and business relationships, but it gave me the opportunity to showcase what esports is all about to Finnish television.SBC: Typical post-ICE activityJames: After the typical post-ICE networking drinks, most of the coming days will be spent following up on meetings and new contacts made during the show. Honestly speaking, there won’t be much time for resting as our esports products ramp up another gear moving into Q2 2017.
