Robert Sackey has been sacked as Ghana’s Female Under-20 coach following an appraisal of his tenure.The US-based trainer has been relieved off the post after the Black Princesses performed poorly at the 2012 FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Japan.Sackey led the Ghanaian female team to their worst World Cup campaign where they failed to win a game, failed to score and conceded six goals to make a first round exit.“I have received an official email confirming my dismissal as the coach of the team,” Sackey said on Asempa FM’s Sports Night show.“I have no grudge with anybody.I was given a job and the authorities feel my output was not good enough and so I’m in America focusing on my job here.“A lot of things happen but I will reveal the issues in due course. “The FA has informed me they are making frantic effort to settle my outsanding arrears. It runs into several months.“I will come home in June to take my money. I am very grateful for the opportunity to serve my nation.Sackey claims he has not been paid for 10-months.
by Malik Vincent For New Pittsburgh Courier The dress rehearsal for a Nov. 10 City League semifinal took place a week early as USO (University Prep, Sci-Tech, and Obama) racked up another shutout victory against defending champs Perry, 12-0.Jaylen Coleman rushed for 110 yards, pacing the offense, and is proving he can play the position with regularity. “He’s beginning to show patience with his blocking,” USO Coach Lou Berry said. “It’s no longer about the big play with him. He’s starting to gain the instincts that are required to play the tailback position.”Seniors Dontae Forte and Kevaun Frenzley scored on runs of one and seven, respectively, for the Panthers on the night of Nov. 4.With the semifinal matchups set, USO and Perry will prepare for another clash at Cupples Stadium on the South Side; as the two and three seeds in the city.With the league’s best overall record, USO’s only loss of the season was against the regular season champs, Brashear which is undefeated in League play, in week two.“We’ve been very successful for much of the year,” Berry said. “But in order to get past Perry and make it to that title game, we have to simplify the game as best as we can. We must play to the whistle and make sure we’re not seeing too much blue and white in our backfield.”The Nov. 10 playoff game between USO and Perry will kick off at 6 p.m.Brashear won by forfeit over Langley to give the Mustangs no wins in what could be their final year of City League play. Langley may close after this school year.“We’re excited about the opportunity to get out there and maybe get a shot to be in another title game,” Brashear coach Rick Murphy said. “We have a senior-laden team that has so much experience in these types of games. Some of these guys have been around this since their freshman year, so they pretty much know what to expect.”Their opponent for the other City semifinal game, set for Nov. 11, is Allderdice. The Dragons were able to finish with a winning record in league play with a 34-0 win over Carrick last week.The game will kick off at 7 p.m.—also in the home confines of Cupples Stadium.Other games:*Westinghouse dropped its final game of the season to Oliver, 34-6.(Follow our continuing coverage of the City League and add your comments to our website at www.newpittsburghcourieronline.com.

We can all learn to live greener simply by seeing what our neighbors are doing. And the public will have the opportunity to see what others are doing to make their own lives and communities more sustainable in the upcoming Monmouth Eco-Tours, scheduled for Sept. 26-27.On Saturday, Sept. 26, those interested can visit sites in the eastern portion of the county, with designated locations in Red Bank, Rumson, Middletown, Tinton Falls, Ocean, West Long Branch and Long Branch. The following day visitors will be welcomed at spots in the county’s western side in Marlboro, Freehold and Manalapan.More locations may be added by tour dates.At the various stops people can see how others undertake such projects as mushroom cultivation, rainwater collection, community gardens, beekeeping, urban farming practices and other environmentally friendly activities that will benefit the planet in the long run.“All these things we can teach people how to do, things they may have heard about them but didn’t necessarily know how to do,” said Diane Burke, whose Rumson backyard and garden is part of the planned tour.The two days of tours is part of a Transition Initiative that residents around the county have begun undertaking. The initiative movement was first proposed by Transition United States in this country, and globally by Transition Network, a United Kingdom organization, to engage communities in undertaking long-term pro-environmental programs.“It’s private people who have something to offer that they’re doing that’s green and sustainable or for a better earth,” said Burke of her involvement.Burke has been composting for the last few years, using water barrels and attachments for her garden among other efforts and plans on explaining their benefits to visitors on the tour.“It’ll teach people to be sustainable is all something that we have to realize we have to start doing,” Burke said.“We’re using up way too much of the earth and taking it for granted,” she explained. “And it feels really good to live in a more green way,” she continued. “Here you’re honoring the earth and seeing how precious everything is.”To see a tour map and for more information log onto sites.google.com/site/transitionmonmouth/home.
