Phelan takes Hull post

first_img Phelan said: “I’m extremely pleased to be at this football club. “I want to work hard and channel all of my energy into helping the staff, the players and everybody associated with the club. “I’m looking forward to working with Steve and hopefully I can bring with me some of the things I have learnt over the years to help us improve.” Phelan spent five years as assistant to Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United before leaving the club when Ferguson retired in 2013. He moved on for a brief spell as assistant manager at Norwich but left shortly after the departure of boss Neil Adams last month. Last Saturday’s abject 3-0 home defeat to Newcastle was Hull’s third in a row and left them third from bottom of the table. And Bruce was left frustrated in the January transfer window as only one of his stated targets – Dame N’Doye – arrived to bolster his side’s survival battle. Bruce said: “I’m delighted to welcome Mike to the club. Mike brings a wealth of experience to the position having worked with Sir Alex at Manchester United for many years. “I’ve known Mike for a long time and he is a good person who will undoubtedly add something different at the training ground.” The 52-year-old will link back up with his former Manchester United team-mate Steve Bruce for the weekend trip to Manchester City. Phelan’s arrival comes with the club deep in a Premier League relegation battle and speculation over Bruce’s own future starting to grow. Hull have confirmed the appointment of Mike Phelan as the club’s new assistant manager.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

“Grim Reaper” Lawyer Stalks Jacksonville Beachgoers

first_imgJACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla. — Beachgoers this Fourth of July weekend were haunted by the morbid specter of a rather morbid sight on Jacksonville Beach.They were greeted by an attorney dressed as none other than the Grim Reaper.Daniel Uhlfelder, an attorney based in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, donned on the garb of the symbol of death as a way to spread awareness that Florida is still battling the deadly coronavirus, despite the state’s phased reopening.“I talked to some millennials in their 20s who wanted to talk about why I was doing this, why they may disagree with certain parts of it,” he told First Coast News.Friday’s stop was part of his “Florida Grim Reaper Tour,” which he launched back in May around Phase 1 of reopening. He started in the Florida Panhandle to beaches all over South Florida.According to his Twitter page, Uhlfelder’s scythe-wielding persona is his way speaking out against Gov. Ron DeSantis’ handling of the global pandemic, as well as his attempt at fighting “misinformation and warn people about the dangers of COVID-19 as Florida becomes [an] epicenter.”“I tried a social media campaign, I tried suing the governor to close the beaches and do a stay at home order,” he said.“We have to take this into our own hands, unfortunately, because our leaders aren’t doing the right thing,” Uhlfelder told USA Today back in May.At Jacksonville Beach some were not happy to see Uhlfelder dressed in black robes mingling among the bathing suit clad beach goers. In fact the police had to intervene in a dispute between him and another man per his request.“I had a very good open discussion with a lot of people, but then there are some detractors that are just trolls,” he said. “But they don’t bother me, so.”Story continues below.Florida has seen a growing trend of positive COVID-19 cases with numbers surpassing the state’s initial peak back in April. Over the past two weeks alone, July 2 marked the 10th straight day where the number of newly reported coronavirus cases was more than 5,000.last_img read more

USA dominates 4x400s relays

first_imgIN the final women’s event of the IAAF Championships, the United States won 4x400m gold in 3:18.92, thereby adding another world gold to the record total collected by Allyson Felix.Although Felix – who moved one clear of the record of 11 she held jointly with Usain Bolt as a member of the quartet that set a mixed 4x400m relay world record on day three – did not run on Sunday night she was eligible for another gold having run in the heats. So 13 golds she now has…Rai Benjamin brings it home for the US men’s 4x400m relay squad at the IAAF World Athletics Championships Doha 2019 (Getty Images) tThe 2017 individual champion Phyllis Francis ran strongly to set up 20-year-old 400m hurdles phenomenon Sydney McLaughlin, who handed over to the woman who had to run another world record to beat her in the individual final, Dalilah Muhammad, before the baton was brought home with 10 metres to spare by Wadeline Jonathas.There were soon shrieks of disbelief from the silver medallist Polish runners as they saw the national record time of 3:21.89 on the scoreboard after European champion Justyna Swiety-Ersetic had regained her lead over Jamaica’s individual bronze medallist Shericka Jackson 50m from home.Jamaica took bronze in 3:22.37 ahead of Britain, who clocked 3:24.99.In the concluding event, the men’s 4x400m title went to the United States as anchor leg runner Rai Benjamin brought the baton home in 2:56.69, the fastest time run this season, with Jamaica taking silver in 2:57.90.Kevin Borlee held off the challenge of individual silver medallist Anthony Zambrano to secure bronze for Belgium in 2:58.78, with Colombia finishing fourth in a national record of 2:59.50.

But Coach Imama Ampakabo and his young squad seem to have the right kind of vim to return the sheen.Sunshine Stars started the match in Enugu perhaps with an intent to curtail their hosts and they did just that for most of the first half until the last quarter when lanky Bobby Clement made his physical attributes count. Rangers thus climbed to 57 points, one point ahead of former leaders, Rivers United.The ball bubbled inside the Akure Gunners box on the 37th minute and Clement pounced to score, picking his spot to put the Flying Antelopes ahead. Sunshine Stars looked like they switched plans from their defensive intent to offensive when they mounted pressure for the equalizer and on the 41st minute, Orji Kalu handled the ball inside the box for a penalty. Dele Olorundare stepped forward but his effort was saved by goalkeeper Nana Bonsu.Eight minutes after, Clement’s physique came in handy when he rose highest to head home a Chuka Egbuchulam cross. The rains poured down but Rangers held on for a win that may indeed be the turning point in their quest to break a 32-year title drought.In Bauchi, Coach Stanley Eguma saw his match plan to take a point out of Bauchi succeed until the last 10 minutes. Festus Umana lifted the ball high across the Rivers United goal area and it was knocked down by Abubakar Lawal for Waziri to finish and gift all three points to the Bauchi Tourists that now moved two places up to the third position on 54 points.FC IfeanyiUbah saw their unbeaten run stopped by a brace from Yaya Soumaila in Makurdi where Lobi Stars snatched all three points after Ismaila Gata pulled the Anambra Warriors level on 52nd minute from the penalty spot. Soumaila had put Lobi ahead, finishing off a Kingsley Eduwo assist on the 32nd minute and with the fans growing restive after Gata’s equalizer, the attacker popped up to restore the lead 18 minutes from regulation time. Lobi overtook Sunshine Stars to the fifth place with 52 points behind FC IfeanyiUbah that stepped down from 3rd place on 53 points.In another nervy encounter, Abia Warriors rekindled their survival from relegation with a first win in six games following a 2-1 defeat of Nasarawa United at the Umuahia Township Stadium. It was defender, Ogbonnaya Okemiri who gave Abia Warriors the lead on 18 minutes but Douglas Achive restored parity for the Solid Miners on 59 minutes. The goal must have sent the winless hoodoo scare to the Abia Warriors bench inside the stadium where fans were barred from watching following unruly crowd behavior in their last game against FC IfeanyiUbah. But with three minutes left on the clock, an own goal from Abdulbasit Shittu ended the Umuahia side’s victory drought.It however has done little to help Abia Warriors relegation throes as they only stayed on 17th place with 41 points, though four more than Heartland on 18th place. Abia Warriors still have a game on hand against State rivals, Enyimba.In Warri, a Sikiru Alimi strike on 18th minute helped the Seasiders pick all three points against Shooting Stars but the result still left both sides within the relegation fight. Wolves stayed put on 16th place with 42 points while Shooting also stagnated on 14th place with 44 points. There is still all to play for in the race to beat the drop.Former Champions, MFM puffed and huffed to a nil all draw against strugglers, MFM in Port Harcourt. Enyimba remained a shadow of the stuff that made them champions last season and hardly troubled a more youthful and fast footed MFM side that were unlucky not to have scored on two occasions. MFM remained on 15th position with 42 points and still must win one match from the remaining two to stay safe.In Jos, Plateau United piped Ikorodu United 1-0 to officially confirm the club’s relegation back to the Nigeria National League (NNL) just after one season in the elite division. The 11th minute goal headed in by Kelechi John off a cross by Bright Silas made it mathematically impossible for the Lagos side to get off the relegation bracket with two matches left to end the season.On Wednesday, Kano Pillars will host El-Kanemi Warriors in Kano while Heartland receives Niger Tornadoes in another battle of a relegation candidate against a safe side. Heartland will need to win the remaining three fixtures to stand a mathematical chance of beating the drop after amassing 37 points so far. Pillars and El-Kanemi still fancy an outside chance of getting into the top four but one must cancel each other out on Wednesday.last_img read more

Head coaches Scott Shafer, John Desko discuss Daryl Gross stepping down as director of athletics, provide glimpse into future

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 24, 2015 at 8:12 pm Contact Matt: mcschnei@syr.edu | @matt_schneidman Six days after former Director of Athletics Daryl Gross stepped down from his position, football head coach Scott Shafer and men’s lacrosse head coach John Desko spoke about the move and briefly looked into the future involving a new athletic director.Shafer, who’s entering his third season as Syracuse head coach, didn’t discuss Gross directly, but said he trusts Chancellor Kent Syverud’s plans moving forward.He added that Syverud’s recent track record makes him comfortable, specifically citing how Syverud made the implementation of the indoor practice facility happen.“I think, for me, we always preach to the kids, and now we have to practice it as coaches, is controlling the controllables,” Shafer said. “Then when you have change, a change agent, you always have to look at the top.”Desko, who has been at SU for all 10 years Gross was director of athletics, said Gross has been great for Syracuse lacrosse.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe men’s lacrosse team was the only SU sports team to win national championships — which it did twice in 2008 and 2009 — in Gross’ tenure as director of athletics.“I’ve gotten along with him very well so, you know, happy to have that time with him,” Desko said, “… and happy that he’s going to be staying with the university in a different position.”When asked what he’s looking for in the next athletic director, Desko laughed and simply said one who supports the lacrosse program.But both head coaches didn’t look too far into the future regarding a new athletic director, both citing their team’s next obligation as their main area of focus.“I haven’t really thought about it, we’re thinking about Notre Dame right now,” Desko said.“I know he’ll find a great AD,” Shafer said of Syverud. “I look forward to it but to be honest with you, I’m really just worried about getting that practice 11. “ Commentslast_img read more

Madison Rayne on almost quitting wrestling, her awesome year and aiming for gold at ROH Final Battle

The show airs live on pay-per-view this Friday, Dec. 14 at 8 p.m. ET on the Fite TV app and will be available for members of the subscription-based Honor Club streaming network via ROHWrestling.com.MORE: Former ROH champion Dalton Castle on his injury, facing Matt Taven at Final Battle“While I’ve been in the ring for 13 years, I’m not the veteran in this match and that doesn’t happen to me often,” explained Rayne. “Sumie has wrestled close to 20 years. Kelly Klein and I actually started out together around the same time in the same area so, she and I, we go way back. Collectively, there are decades worth of experience in that ring. Even Karen Q, whose only been wrestling four or five years, she is so incredibly talented.”It’s a big opportunity for Rayne who has been on a quest to win the Women of Honor Women’s Championship. Plus, it’s another big showcase match for the women and something that she and the others don’t take lightly..@Women_of_Honor Four Corner Survival THIS FRIDAY at #ROHFinalBattle!8e/5p – LIVE on PPV, FREE for #HonorClub VIP, 50% off for HonorClub Standard, @FiteTV – Order Now: https://t.co/gfglt9W0Mg@SumieSakai @MadisonRayne @karenmeee @RealKellyKlein#WOHWednesday pic.twitter.com/xLfEaIAx9V— ROH Wrestling (@ringofhonor) December 12, 2018“It has, over the last couple of weeks, pushed me out of my comfort zone,” said Rayne about training for the match. “It’s put me back in the gym. It’s put me back in the wrestling gym, rolling around in the ring and trying to change things up a little bit and come up with new ideas.”Rayne announced a few months ago that she signed a one-year deal with Ring of Honor. The 32-year-old had plenty of options, but felt that ROH was the best for her at this point in her life.“They believe in me and I believe in them,” Rayne said. “There’s life outside of wrestling and that’s always been a motivating factor for me. I’ve been able to live this dream, travel the world, but never be gone so much that I can’t fulfill all of my other dreams of being a mom and a wife and a personal trainer and going back to school. For me, it’s the better fit that allows me that freedom with my schedule. My hope in signing this contract with Ring of Honor is to write another successful chapter for myself, but also I hope in some small way, that I can help grow Women of Honor and make it what it could be and what it’s on track to being.”This is not Rayne’s first foray with Ring of Honor, as she had a pair of matches with the company a decade ago. Back then, there wasn’t a women’s championship and she was still finding herself as a performer. But that doesn’t mean that she doesn’t still get butterflies before a big match.“While I’m a little more secure in my in-ring skills and I’m a little more self aware that way, it’s different nerves now and it’s different expectations that I’m putting on myself because I have been very transparent in saying that I want to be Women of Honor Champion,” Rayne said. “I want to leave a legacy now in this company as one of the best performers to ever be part of Women of Honor.”Rayne is best identified from her nine years with Impact Wrestling where she was a standout in the Knockouts Division. She left the promotion this past July, admitting that it was different to wrestle elsewhere.“It was uncomfortable in a good way,” Rayne said. “I had the tryout at the WWE Performance Center and that felt way different than anything I had ever done at Impact. I got back out on the indie scene a bit more. I was with Ring of Honor. I went back to Shimmer and all of those places felt good, but it was just different. It’s like the difference in being a freshman in high school to a senior.”This past year has seen Rayne have the unique opportunity to work for Ring of Honor, Impact Wrestling, and WWE. As she explains, it’s been an awesome year for her and for professional wrestling.“Personally, I was able to finally, after 13 years of being in this crazy business, wrestle inside a WWE ring at the Mae Young Classic,” Rayne said with delight. “There was a point, a long point in time, where I felt that my career was going to be purely at Impact. And I would have been OK with that. I’ve always been taken care of there. I always had a great locker room full of girls.”Rayne was also a part of the huge “All In” independent event this past September, competing in an outstanding four-way women’s match with Tessa Blanchard, Britt Baker, and Chelsea Green.“I still don’t have the words to describe how special ‘All In’ was for me because it was such an unknown,” Rayne said. “Cody and the Young Bucks, they put everything they had into this one show and it had never been done before. To be part of something so big and so special and then to have the entire card, but specifically that match that I was a part of be so amazing, I couldn’t have asked for more. That was the biggest crowd that I have ever wrestled in front of.”Just before that, Rayne was a part of the second-ever WWE Mae Young Classic tournament. Many wrestlers look at being a part of the WWE as the pinnacle of the business, but she is quite sure that she will never have her own “WrestleMania moment.”“If I don’t ever see a WWE ring again from now until the time the chapter [closes] on my career, I’m OK with that,” said Rayne. “I’m settled.”Rayne also admits that there was a point last year when she came “really close” to hanging up her wrestling boots for good.“I would have been OK with it because, for me, I feel like I had a really successful career at Impact,” she explained. “I feel like I was able to contribute to a division that has been strong for many years and continues to be. I’ve seen places in this world that I didn’t know existed prior to going there.  I came close enough that there was a serious sit-down conversation between my husband (Impact Wrestling broadcast Josh Mathews) and I in our house. I never got to a point in my brain where I said to myself, ‘I’m done.’ I had strong enough thoughts that it was at least a conversation. For me, that’s close enough.”In the end, she wasn’t done with the business yet and there were plenty of fresh opportunities awaiting her in today’s wrestling landscape.“I’m humbled this many years in that I’ve able to not only still do this, still do it on a large scale, and to have been able to do everything that I’ve done,” said Rayne. “It’s humbling. It makes me feel good and it confirms for me that decision I made with my husband about a year and a half ago to not quit and to continue writing chapters in this journey.” Beginning of my road to Final Battle and the @rohwomenofhonor World Championship.A post shared by Madison/Ashley Rayne (@madisonrayne) on Nov 13, 2018 at 8:04pm PSTNow that she is continuing her wrestling journey and has committed to Ring of Honor, Rayne has laid out some big goals for herself.“My short-term, personal goal after winning the Women of Honor Championship is to be part of that history-making show at Madison Square Garden (in April),” said Rayne. “I joke and say that it’s only natural that Madison Rayne would be at Madison Square Garden, but on more serious note, Ring of Honor is making history in doing this show. I still don’t know that I’ve completely wrapped my brain around how big that’s going to be for wrestling, for Ring of Honor, and for Women of Honor.” One of Ring of Honor’s yearly signature events — Final Battle — is rapidly approaching. Madison Rayne has a lot on her mind between her championship match and trying to get situated into her new Ohio home, but that hasn’t stopped her from already being in the holiday spirit.“I’m one of those people that on the night of Thanksgiving, I want to get my tree up, but we didn’t have the chance to do that,” Rayne explained. “We’re slowly getting things decorated, but as far as the shopping goes, that’s done. I waited until Christmas Eve last year and I vowed never to do that again. I fell victim to Cyber Monday. Santa is making a big stop at our place this year.” MORE: Former ROH champion Dalton Castle on his injury, facing Matt Taven at Final BattleAnd, of course, there’s also the holiday season on her mind.“It’s a happy balance here between holiday baking shows and Hallmark Christmas movies,” Rayne cheerfully explained. “My husband can’t get out the door quick enough in the morning because he knows if it’s not my daughter watching holiday baking, it’s me sifting through trying to find one of the Christmas movies I haven’t already watched.”last_img read more
