Who Wins 2015 Special Intra-Gov’t Tourney?

first_imgAmongst the eight football teams in the 2015 Special Intra-Governmental Tournament, which begins today, there are two favorites– the current champions, the Ministry of Youth and Sports and the Legislature.The MYS, in the 2014 edition clinched the tournament from amongst over 16 contenders, with former Liberia midfield maestro Kelvin Sebwe providing the inspiration.The employment of Joe Nagbe and George Gebro at the Ministry now will improve the team’s chances.Howbeit, the Legislature –also formidable force – with Africa’s Legend Sen. George Weah, playing as offensive midfielder has Fofi Kamara, Sebastian Mouh amongst others.Today at 9:00am, over 500 public servants from three branches of Government – Legislature, Judiciary and the Executive – are expected to parade from Broad Street’s Sports Commission to the Antoinette Tubman Stadium to kick-off the three-day football and kickball tournaments.A brief program will precede events where Youth and Sports Minister Eugene Nagbe and Madam Yusador Gaye – the Auditor General of the General Auditing Commission, will be amongst other speakers.The GAC’s AG will take the official kick-off at 10:00am.The tournament should have been “celebrating the Kick-out of Ebola in the country,” but the resurgence of the Ebola has caused the tournament to go on without a theme – an unprecedented incident.The cost of the tournament is about US$12,800 – with a budget allocation of about US$10,400 and US$2,400 for totaled registration of the 16 teams.In the opener, the kickball team of NASSCORP meets Ministry of State. The male team of NASSCORP faces the GAC in the first football derby and LIBTELCO will locks horns with the Ministry of Defence.The Judiciary faces the Legislature to climax the day’s games. On Thursday, defending kickball champions of the Ministry of Youth and Sports will play the Legislature, while the Judiciary meets the Forestry Development Authority, and then first winner between NASSCORP and Ministry of State will face the Ministry of Finance and the LBS and the defending football champions Ministry of Youth and Sports will climax the day.At the end of the tournament on Friday, trophies would be given to the first and 2nd winners in each category as well as medals, but individual prizes are yet to be finalized.The reduction of participating teams from 32 to eight teams as well as deletion of the volleyball version are because of budget cut and lack of playing facilities in the country.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

CLARIFICATION AND APOLOGY: TERMON GAA CLUB

first_imgApology and Clarification: Termon GAA ClubIn an article published on Donegal Daily late on Sunday last, October 19, and which was on the site for 11 hours before being removed, we reported on an U13 game involving Termon and St Eunan’s GAA clubsWe wish to state that no-one from Termon GAA club recorded any part of the game on a video device and Donegal Daily accepts this entirely, and further there was nothing for Bord na nOg to therefore investigate, which we also accept. No investigation took place. It was reported by us that there had been a discussion at half-time about the score with a dispute over what it should have been and it was also reported by us that the scores had been recorded on a device.Donegal Daily now accepts entirely that the score was not video-recorded on a device, and that the notes app on a mobile device was merely used to note scores and scorers for a subsequent match report at the request of a local newspaper. This was used to help clarify what the half-time score should have read.We are happy to clarify all these positions and apologise to Termon GAA club.* Donegal Daily endeavours to issue clarifications and corrections as soon as possible. We accept reports submitted to us in good faith but where there is an error it is our policy to correct it.  CLARIFICATION AND APOLOGY: TERMON GAA CLUB was last modified: October 25th, 2014 by John2Share 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)last_img read more
