first_imgThere is a growing interest for Reggae Boyz left-back Kemar Lawrence, who is said to be on the watch list of English Premier League (EPL) outfit Newcastle United, according to the website SBANATION.com.However, the club’s interest in the player could be derailed by the same work permit requirements that prevent Jamaica senior football team captain Rodolph Austin from taking up a lucrative contract with English Championship side Sheffield Wednesday recently.Although the MLS’ transfer window is already closed, rumour has it that Newcastle are eyeing New York Red Bull’s player and Jamaican international, Lawrence, though securing a deal could be problematic.English Premier League clubs have until September 1 to sign players from outside England. So even though the MLS transfer window shuts on August 6, teams in England can still sign a player from the MLS, as a league transfer window only applies to players coming in, not to those heading out.The main obstacle for the deal is the new work permit laws. The English Football Association recently announced plans to stem the influx of foreign internationals coming into their leagues and Austin became a casualty of the new work permit regulations.The Jamaican has more than 70 international caps, having made his national debut in 2004. He also has more than 100 appearances for Leeds.The new regulation states that only foreign players who have been regularly selected for international teams in FIFA’s top-50 rankings can be granted a work permit. Jamaica hasn’t been in the top 50 for some time, though they climbed 21 places to currently sit at 55.Exception to the lawThe website also states that if Sheffield Wednesday are serious in their effort to sign Lawrence, a case might be open to Newcastle, as there are exceptions (to the work permit law). But, unfortunately, there is no confidence in the appeal process to work any more.Lawrence has been on a hot run of form recently. His performances in the Copa America won praise from influential observers and his contribution to Jamaica’s run to the Gold Cup final earned him a place in several Best XI selections after the tournament (Fox sports and Goal.com, for example).Many suggest Lawrence is the best left back in CONCACAF on current form and if his work in MLS continues to be worthy, chances are he is going to be given the chance to test himself at a higher level than MLS sooner, rather than later.last_img read more

first_imgBEIJING (AP):At the first news conference following his election as IAAF president, Sebastian Coe recounted a tale from his long and arduous campaign trail that summed up his single-minded pursuit of the top job in track and field.The 58-year-old Coe, a two-time Olympic gold medallist and an instrumental figure in London’s successful bid for and staging of the 2012 Olympics, thanked his support team for a “Herculean” effort as he crisscrossed the globe securing votes from IAAF members in the nearest and most far-flung federations.”On the plane coming over here, three of them were asleep before the wheels left the tarmac,” he said, recalling the trip to Beijing ahead of yesterday’s IAAF congress and elections. A flight attendant remarked that the team seemed relaxed, but Coe quickly countered that they were absolutely exhausted and explained: “We’ve done 700,000 kilometres since Christmas.””She said ‘Actually, that’s quite dangerous.'”Whatever it takes to win.Coe received 115 votes in the poll, 23 more than rival candidate and Ukrainian pole vault great, Sergey Bubka, who later retained his position as an IAAF vice-president. The former Conservative Party lawmaker and head of the British Olympic Association will officially take over as IAAF president after the World Championships conclude at the end of August, replacing 82-year-old Lamine Diack of Senegal.”As your president, I will represent athletics in the Olympic movement. Not the Olympic movement in athletics,” Coe said in his final pitch to delegates in Beijing yesterday. His “declaration of war” statement against recent media reports of alleged mishandling of blood samples in the sport underscored his absolute commitment to the federation, he reminded them.”As you’ve seen in recent weeks, I’m standing in your corner. Your fight is my fight.”Coe forged a never-give-up reputation by winning the 1,500m Olympic titles at Moscow in 1980 and Los Angeles in 1984 during a renowned period for middle-distance running. He also set eight outdoor and three indoor world records, including three in a 41-day stretch during 1979. He applied his competitive instinct from the track into a post-competition career that led him into British politics, big business and international sports administration.Long journey”It has been a long journey – I joined an athletic club when I was 11,” he said. “I had the joys of being an Olympian … but this for me is the pinnacle.”It’s my sport, my passion. It’s the thing I’ve always wanted to do.”Coe vowed to devote himself full-time to the IAAF job, saying: “I have too great an affection for this federation not to be doing that.”But that involves merging those responsibilities with his existing roles which also include being a member of the IOC Coordination Commission for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, being executive chairman of CSM Sport and Entertainment and a global adviser to Nike.”How I combine that is something that I’ve always managed. My life has always been fairly complicated and very busy,” said Coe, a twice-married father of four who also undertook an exhaustive campaign to help London win the rights for the Olympics.”I have a team dedicated to make sure that works. Anything I have to do to accommodate around the presidency of the federation, I will do.”First on the agenda for Coe is dealing with the latest doping controversy swirling around track and field, following reports in the German and British media that cited leaked test results from a 2011 study in an IAAF database and asserted that blood doping was rife in the sport.Coe said he needed to discuss with his council the process for having a fully independent anti-doping tribunal established before releasing any details.”It’s very important,” Coe said of the biggest issue confronting him. “But … I don’t want the thought that trust and integrity is only something that’s rooted in our challenges around doping in sport or doping in track and field. There is a universal problem for that in sport. We’ve been in a lead role for as long as I’ve been in the sport.”That’s something I will very happily defend.”last_img read more

first_imgThe Government revealed plans are afoot to rename the Trelawny Multi-Purpose stadium the Usain Bolt Sport Academy, after the iconic Jamaican sprint legend.Speaking at a press briefing at Jamaica House yesterday, Minister with Responsibility for Sports Natalie Neita-Headley told the media that it is a matter of priority, as it is “near and dear to Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller”.”It (renaming the stadium) has been the prime minister’s dream, not just since Beijing 2015, but it will reflect her desire to have that stadium in his (Usain Bolt’s) home parish named appropriately – the Usain Bolt Sport Academy,” Neita-Headley outlined yesterday.”We would not do so, however, until the completed finance of putting in a track is realised,” she assured.Bolt is a six-time Olympic gold medallist and has won 11 IAAF World Championship gold medals.She noted that $26 million has been approved for the installation of an irrigation system at the facility.The stadium was built in 2007, through an agreement with the People’s Republic of China and the Jamaican Government, which put up at least US$30 million to have it completed. It hosted the opening ceremony and warm-up matches during the 2007 Cricket World Cup in the Caribbean.White ElephantThe stadium currently hosts the annual Jamaica Jazz and Blues concert. Some Jamaicans call it a ‘white elephant’, however, as it is scarcely utilised. However, Neita-Headley believes naming it after Bolt will attract international audiences.”I don’t think we can ever, ever refer to anything that is associated with the legendary Usain Bolt as a white elephant,” Neita Headley said.”I think it will be a great representation of that venue. I love it and I think many Jamaicans love it. It is a great location and I think may people across the world, including sportsmen and women, will want to associate with that venue, more so if it is the Usain Bolt Sport Academy,” she stressed. not giving a specific timeline when it would be ready, and added: “I can tell you that it is very near and dear to the prime minister and with that I can tell you that it comes with a great sense of urgency.”last_img read more

first_imgLONDON (AP): Dele Alli underlined his growing reputation by single-handedly ending Chelsea’s 13-match winning run yesterday, scoring two headed goals to give Tottenham a 2-0 victory over the Premier League leaders. The defence has been the bedrock of Chelsea’s three-month hot streak, but Alli was gifted space to score carbon-copy goals in each half at White Hart Lane after meeting crosses from Christian Eriksen. By taking his tally to seven goals in four games, the 20-year-old Alli inflicted Chelsea’s first loss since their last trip to north London at Arsenal in September and prevented the Blues from earning a league-record 14th successive win in a single season. “This league is very tough,” Chelsea manager Antonio Conte said. “Now it’s important to restart. After 13 wins in a row, it’s difficult to accept defeat.” Chelsea still lead Liverpool by five points, but Tottenham are now only seven points behind in third, after a fifth successive victory. “It’s a big statement for us, but we are happy to stay under the radar,” said Alli, whose team’s hopes of a first title since 1961 were ended by Chelsea last season. Conte established the winning run that sent Chelsea to the summit after switching to a three-man defence to stem the tide of goals in a 3-0 first-half collapse at Arsenal. But the defence is now leaking goals, conceding four in the last two matches after only letting in two in the previous 12 fixtures. Tottenham matched Chelsea’s formation and restricted Conte’s side to few chances, while proving more cohesive and solid at the back to frustrate the visitors’ forward line. “I didn’t get on the ball as much as I would have liked to,” Alli said. The midfielder didn’t need to. Alli was described on the eve of the game by manager Mauricio Pochettino as the “most important player to emerge in English football in recent years”. Signed from third-tier club MK Dons two years ago for £5 million, Alli lived up to his manager’s exalted praise with his mastery of the attacking spaces. While Chelsea were looking more likely to score on the counterattack in the first half, Tottenham used a break to devastating effect on the stroke of half-time with Alli making the breakthrough. Kyle Walker teed up Eriksen and as the cross was floated into the penalty area, Alli was left unmarked between Victor Moses and Cesar Azpilicueta to coolly nod past goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois. It was an assertive start to the second half by Chelsea, but Tottenham preserved their lead. Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris blocked a low shot from Diego Costa, Eden Hazard’s low header was off target and Moses’ penalty appeals were dismissed when he was clipped by Mousa Dembele. Spurs then punished Chelsea’s porous defending again in the 54th minute with a replica of the opener.last_img read more

first_imgCanadian boxer Dave Leblond defeated local fighter Nico Yeyo in his return to the Wray and Nephew Contender Junior Middleweight Series at the Chinese Benevolent Association Auditorium last night. Leblond, who had been recalled to the competition in place of countryman Ryan Wagner, after losing to Tsetsi Davis a few weeks ago, said it was a frustrating bout as he was constantly being held and hit in his back by Yeyo, who was making his professional debut. Judges Lindel Allen scored the bout 47-45 in favour of Leblond, as did Jeremy Hayes, who gave a score of 48-44, while Clifford Brown scored it a 46-46 draw. Team Jamaica and Team Canada are now locked at 3 wins apiece.
