Donovan ‘DV’ Hayles has resigned as head coach of Hydel High School’s Manning Cup football team, following the re-hiring of Geoffrey Maxwell in late June. “Yeah, man. I resigned from early July because, with no disrespect, but Mr Maxwell was brought in as technical director,” Hayles told The Gleaner yesterday morning. “I have my own philosophy, just like Mr Maxwell. He (Maxwell) is a coach who loves to be in control, and I am also a strong coach,” Hayles reasoned. Hayles also disclosed that after the hiring of Maxwell, there was a meeting, and he told the Hydel authorities that it could not work. “They believe that with both of us being coaching for many years, we could work together. But that is not reality. We are two head coaches. Both of us will want to ensure our own style. Authorities want us to work together, but I don’t foresee that happening. Hence, I sent in a resignation letter to the school board,” Hayles revealed. Looking ahead, Hayles says he is open to work with a school or club. “I am up for any reasonable offer as I plan to continue coaching football,” he concluded. Meanwhile, Corey Bennett, Hydel Group of Schools vice-president and sports director, confirmed Hayles’ resignation, also yesterday. “That’s true,” Bennett told The Gleaner. “He (Hayles) resigned at the beginning of the summer. Now, Mr Maxwell will assume roles as technical director and head coach.” Maxwell was re-employed at the Ferry-based institution in late June. At the time, he was employed as technical director. Hayles served as coach of the Manning Cup team in 2014, following the resignation of Maxwell in 2013. Maxwell had previously spent two years and guided Hydel to the Manning Cup final, where they lost to St George’s College in 2012 at the National Stadium. That was Maxwell’s first year in charge.

In the wake of the outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus in the country, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has urged the Ministry of Health & Social Welfare’s task force to be vigilant in the fight of the virus.Speaking at the a special program on Wednesday, April 9, Madam Sirleaf explained that the Health Ministry and its partners have kept her fully abreast with their intervention since it was officially announced that it has crossed over from neighboring Guinea.The President said her understanding is that the disease is not spreading since its outbreak late March of this year and there were effective actions in place by the MOH and other partners including the World Health Organization (WHO) in ending the plague in Liberia.The President also expressed her sympathy to those families, who have lost loved ones after contracting the virus.“I am told that about 10 persons have died. l want to use this time to say sorry to those who have been affected of the Ebola virus since the outbreak, I have been briefed by Dr. Walter Gwenigale of what is happening.”Speaking earlier, the United States Ambassador to Liberia, Deborah Malac, re-emphasized that a delegation of the US Defense Dept., which has medical testing facilities over the border in Kenema, Sierra Leone, will arrive in the country to help support the fight of the virus in Liberia.She further explained that the two testing centers/labs to be setup by the US Defense Department, would reduce the cost and time of sending blood samples to neighboring Guinea for confirmation as well as be on time of the information from the testing medical centers.Madam Malac also used the occasion to express thanks to the Health Ministry for the fight against deadly Ebola virus, which has so far claimed at least 12, lives in Lofa and other parts of the country.The World Health Organization Country Representative, Dr. Nestor Ndayimirije, said they were working with several technical people to ensure that the virus does not spread and end in a short period of time.He further explained at the program that “no country has closed their borders in the wake of the outbreak of the Ebola virus” and expressed that all of its partners were committed to the fight of the virus in the country.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

10 10 10 2. David Luiz (£50m) – Click the yellow arrow above, right, to see the most overpriced footballer ever – No wonder Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho wandered around looking so smug last summer. The Portuguese manager probably couldn’t believe his luck when Paris Saint-Germain put such an enormous fee on the table for a player whose style of play was once likened to a child using his Playstation by Gary Neville. Although Luiz has shown us flashes of brilliance in front of goal, he’s a central defender and simply doesn’t have the necessary concentration levels or tactical awareness to justify such a sum of money. That said, he did wipe the smile of Chelsea faces when he scored as PSG knocked the Blues out of Europe last season, but that £50m didn’t exactly look like money well spent when Barca waltzed past the Parisians in the next round. 9. Christopher Samba (£12.5m) – Click the yellow arrow above, right, to see more of the most overpriced footballers ever – What should you definitely not do when your side is entrenched in a relegation battle and leaking goals left, right and centre? Sign Christopher Samba on a four-and-a-half-year contract. Nobody told harry Redknapp as the QPR boss snapped up the central defender from Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala and promptly put the Congo international on £100,000-a-week. Nobody sets out to pay over the odds for a player, but plenty of clubs end up doing just that.Negotiating a fair price in the transfer market is pretty tricky, after all.Unfortunately bargains are difficult to come by in the modern game and it’s more likely to see your beloved club spend far more than they ought to on players that simply aren’t worth their salt.Click the yellow arrow above, right, to see talkSPORT’s full list of the most overpriced footballers ever. 4. Fernandinho (£30m) – Click the yellow arrow above, right, to see the top three most overpriced footballers ever – Money bags Manchester City aren’t shy about dipping into their seemingly bottomless pockets. Sheikh Mansour and co’s money has transformed the club and the Etihad outfit have established themselves amongst Europe’s elite but they don’t always spend their cash wisely. Several big money arrivals have been and gone, but the Brazilian midfielder seems to stick out given that he’s often referred to as little more than a ball carrier, rather than a world beater. The club paid a whopping £30m for a player who, despite being 28 at the time of signing, had never played in one of Europe’s top five leagues. 6. Marouane Fellaini (£27.5m) – Click the yellow arrow above, right, to see the top five most overpriced footballers ever – The bushy-haired Belgian was a key member of Everton’s side, with the midfielder used as the Toffees’ battering ram as they often ruffled the feathers of the big boys. However, few ever expected Fellaini to be given an opportunity by a top four club. That changed when David Moyes took charge at Old Trafford and, after failing to secure most of his preferred targets, sanctioned a transfer for Fellaini at the 11th hour on transfer deadline day. 3. Luke Shaw (£30m) – Click the yellow arrow above, right, to see more of the most overpriced footballers ever – Sorry Manchester United fans, but let’s be realistic. Yes, he’s got plenty of potential. Yes, he’s an England international. Yes, he’s an exciting talent. But Shaw became the world’s most expensive teenager when he completed his move to Old Trafford from Southampton last summer which is, quite frankly, bonkers. Time is on the youngster’s side, but he needs to do a lot more to impress Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal. 10 7. Joleon Lescott (£22m) – Click the yellow arrow above, right, to see more of the most overpriced footballers ever – This move was more than a bit bitter. Everton were keen to retain the services of the central defender and David Moyes dug his heels in. However, Manchester City were desperate to send out a statement of intent and get their man. What was the result? Well, Lescott eventually headed to the Etihad Stadium, but with an unnecessarily large transfer fee hanging over his head. Rio Ferdinand was the only English defender who’d cost more at the time and, while Lescott was part of a title-winning team, there is no doubt his price tag was heavily inflated. 10 10 10 10 10 5. Hulk (£32m) – Click the yellow arrow above, right, to see more of the most overpriced footballers ever – The Brazilian forward was linked with every club under the sun during his successful spell with Porto, but it was the Russian outfit that finally decided to stump up the cash for Hulk. And boy did the oil rich Russians have to reach deep into their pockets to lure the player to north eastern Europe. He hasn’t proven himself to be worth the punt thus far, however. Meanwhile, Zenit are owned by energy giants Gazprom and have made a host of questionable transfers over the years. That’s what happens when money isn’t an object. 10. Stewart Downing (£20m) – Liverpool dropped a clanger when they paid such a handsome sum to Aston Villa for the English midfielder in 2011. Click the yellow arrow above, right, to see the full list of the most overpriced footballers ever – The then 26-year-old had enjoyed a rich vein of form in the West Midlands but, even though Downing had 27 England caps to his name at the time, most fans thought the Merseysiders had shelled out a little too much for his services. Such worries proved to be accurate as the midfielder didn’t exactly make any waves during his spell at Anfield. 8. Dmytro Chygrynskiy (€25m) – Click the yellow arrow above, right, to see more of the most overpriced footballers ever – Barcelona are usually pretty savvy in the transfer market. After all, almost any player in the world would do everything in their power to secure a move to the Camp Nou, which tends to make things a tad easier. However, the Catalan club got it completely wrong when they signed Chygrynskiy from Shakhtar Donetsk in 2009. It’s one Pep Guardiola probably wants to forget. 10 1. Andy Carroll (£35m) – What possessed Liverpool to bid such a ludicrous sum of money for the striker in January 2011? We attempt to work it out… – The undisputed number one arrives in the form of the Geordie striker who, after playing well for Newcastle United for half a Premier League season, was signed by the Merseysiders for a fee that had the football world collectively scratching its head. Flushed with £50m from the sale of Fernando Torres, Liverpool brought in Carroll for a fee that easily eclipsed the record £22.7m they had just paid for Luis Suarez. Now, consider that Suarez had impressed at a World Cup, while Torres no matter how badly he subsequently flopped at Stamford Bridge had won both the Euros and World Cup while establishing himself as one of Europe’s best strikers, and the idea that Carroll could somehow be worth a fee of £35m is insanity. The powerful striker is good at what he does, but his style of play simply didn’t suit that of Liverpool. Injuries restricted the Englishman’s progress and he was soon shipped out on loan to West Ham United, before being sold at a £20m loss.

Colm McFadden in action at O’Donnell Park: Picture by BrianMcDaid/Cristeph GalleryIT may be Division Two football Donegal are playing this year, but it’s very good football – and manager Jim McGuinness is very happy after three wins on the bounce.Taking on Ulster Champions Monaghan, even at home at O’Donnell Park, was never going to be easy.But Donegal coped with everything the Farney men threw at them. And that was very pleasing for McGuinness.“From our own point of view it’s good to get up and running at home,” he said.“We had two good away matches where the performance levels were of similar quality to today. So that’s three good performances back-to-back for us now.“We played nice expansive football at times against Monaghan, with some really good support play. Overall the attitude was excellent and we now have six points on the board.” The Glenties man says expanding his squad and mixing youth with experience is helping the side reap rich rewards.“Every team in the country is on a mission in terms of goals and objectives for the season. We’re no different,” he said.“We’re a team that’s benefiting from having a lot of senior players who are still central to the team. We have them back in the fold and the added advantage of having new guys like Odhran MacNiallais and Darach O’Connor coming in is a boost.“Dermot Molloy’s form has been really good. Patrick (McBrearty) after his injuries is getting 20 minutes in matches and he’s making an impact every day he’s comes on.“Our overall objective is try and get the lads who had the major injuries last year up to the level required by the end of the League, while also giving youth an opportunity to play in the team. “Those two things have been going quite well in the three games and that’s good.”SO FAR, SO GOOD – McGUINNESS HAPPY WITH LEAGUE PROGRESS was last modified: March 2nd, 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)Tags:donegalGAAJim McGuinnessMonaghanNational League

Kaddu (9) in action against Express defender Lavita (right) on Tuesday (Photo by Shaban Lubega)StarTimes Uganda Premier League Express FC 3-2 KCCA FCBetway Mutessa II Stadium, Wankulukuku Tuesday, 11-12-2018WANKULUKUKU – Express put an end to KCCA’s unbeaten start to the StarTimes Uganda Premier league thanks to a 3-2 victory at a wet surface in Wankulukuku.Goals from Michael Birungi, Eric Kambale and Disan Galiwango propelled the Red Eagles to victory despite Allan Okello and Allan Kyambadde striking for KCCAHow the drama unfolded:In the early exchanges, neither side was in control as the surface at the ground was slippery and hence hindering ball retention.The first chance of the game fell to Express star-player, Tony Odur who raced onto a long ball, clipped it over Charles Lukwago in KCCA’s goal but Filbert Obenchan cleared off the line to save Mike Mutebi’s side from falling behind early.At the other end, Patrick Kaddu collided with Express custodian Ronald Mutebi before the ball fell in the path of Jackson Nunda but the lanky midfielder could not capitalize as the home side cleared their lines.On 16 minutes, Birungi put Express in the lead. The energetic winger beat the Kasasiros’ backline to node in Badru Nsubuga’s cross from the left.KCCA could have leveled matter 8 minutes later but Galiwango produced a goal line clearance following Obenchan’s header off a Mustapha Kizza corner.Two minutes later, Mutebi who looked shaky in cross collection, mishandled a gift Ali cross but was on hand to save Muzamir Mutyaba’s rebound and in process, preserve Express’s lead.At the hour mark, Birungi produced an energetic run down the right, beating three KCCA players including custodian-Lukwago but his cut back was intercepted by Saddam Juma who cleared the ball away from danger.On 32 minutes, Saddam was stretchered off with an injury following a collusion with Nsubuga in the center-circle. Despite medical attention, the former Express Captain was replaced by Kyambadde (Photo by Shaban Lubega)Like KCCA earlier, Express were also forced into a an early substitution when goalkeeper-Mutebi was forced off with injury and replaced with Tony Kyamera.Patrick Kaddu’s booking in the build up to Mutebi’s injury was the last action of the first half and the two sides were sent into the break with Express lead in 1-0.At the start of the second half, Muetbi made his second substitution, sending on Allan Okello in place of Steven Sserwadda.Five minutes into the half, Tony Odur missed a glorious opportunity to but his side 2-0 up when he mis-cued a shot inside the area while one on one with Lukwago.A minute later, Odur was made to pay for his miss as Kyambadde nodded in Nunda’s cross from the left to level matters for KCCA.Odur who looked in poor shape was replaced by Mubarak Nsubuga at the hour mark.KCCA made their final substitution on 65 minutes with Muwadda Mawejje replacing Muzamir Mutyaba.With 21 minutes to play, Kambale restored Express’s lead with a well taken strike off Nsubuga’s pass after KCCA captain Timothy Awanyi had failed to deal with a routine long ball down the right.In the aftermath of the goal, Kambale was booked for taking off his shirt during the celebrations.Three minutes later, Birungi was also booked for time wasting as Express prepared to take a corner. However, Birungi’s decision to let Galiwango take it paid off big time as the left-back swung in the resultant kick straight into Lukwago’s hands and after the custodian gambled with the ball, assistant referee-William Oloya deemed it to have crosses the line, putting the home side 3-1 up with only 16 minutes to play.Galiwango (3) in action on Tuesday afternoon (Photo by Shaban Lubega)For minutes later, Kaddu nodded a Kizza cross off the cross-bar and out for a goal kick.However, the Kasasiro would not be denied a second time as Okello headed past Kyamera to ensure KCCA trail by only one going into the last 10 minutes.As KCCA pressed for an equalizer, Ibrahim Kayiwa missed the last chance of the game when he nodded wide a Birungi cross from the right, while unmarked in the area.Victory for Express puts an end to a three game winless run for the Red Eagles and sends them into 8th on the log with 16 points.For KCCA, they remain top of the standings with 24 points from 11 games.The other results on Tuesday:– Ndejje University 1-1 SC Villa– Mbarara City 1-0 Tooro United– Maroons FC 2-1 Nyamityobora– Paidah Black Angels 0-1 Kirinya JSS– Bul FC 1-0 Onduparaka FCComments Tags: Express FCKCCA FCStarTimes Uganda Premeir Leaguetop
