It will guarantee the club a minimum of $550,000.“The mood in the camp is positive but most importantly, the players have the self-belief that they have what it takes to knock out Sundowns. I’m confident that we can get the result we want because our style of play guarantees us to create chances and we shall create them,” Mutebi said.Mutebi believes game approach will be important if at all his team stands any chance against the reigning African champions.“We are set, the team has no concerns at all, the preparations have been smooth and we are ready for the game,” he said in a pre- match press briefing on Friday morning. Like I have always said, the players must understand the game and the way we approach game situation will be important.” Mutebi reassured ,  insisting that he will keep the same playing style like he has employed in the previous games.“We respect them (Sundowns) because they are defending champions but we shall play our way, keep possession, and create chances because we need to score.”KCCA FC captain Dennis Okot believes they are motivated as players and ready for the challenge.“We could have had a factor of timidness in the opening stages of the first leg and we regrouped and managed to put up a good show. Therefore this motivates us and gives us self-belief that we can march them.”Midfielder Tom Masiko returns to the team after shaking off an injury that saw him miss the flight to South Africa and he is available for selection.Sundowns won the first leg 2-1 at the Lucas Moripe stadium last week and winner on aggregate will advance to the group stages.SOURCE: on: WhatsApplast_img read more

A Master at work – Willett webchat goes down a storm

first_img15 May 2020 A Master at work – Willett webchat goes down a storm Danny Willett’s green jacket will always take pride of place in his locker, but an England blazer remains dear to his heart.In fact, the 2016 Masters champion rates playing as an amateur in the Home Internationals for England as his favourite team golf experience.That was just one of the nuggets to come out of a wide-ranging, open and honest online Q&A session which Willett conducted with England Golf coaches and players this week.Willett was the toast of world golf four years ago when he came from three shots back to card a brilliant final round 67 to win the Masters by three shots from Jordan Spieth and Lee Westwood.To date, that remains the greatest achievement of the Yorkshireman’s career and was a hot topic for discussion during another lively webchat hosted by Performance Director Nigel Edwards.Both Willett and Edwards share more than an England Golf connection.In 2007, they were part of the GB&I Walker Cup squad – also featuring Rory McIlroy – which narrowly lost out to a star-studded American side including Rickie Fowler, Dustin Johnson and Webb Simpson at Royal County Down.Willett – currently based in Isleworth in Florida as he waits for the tours to start on both sides of the pond – talked through his amazing work ethic, his attention to detail and the processes he has followed all his career.And he recalled with fondness an amateur career during which he won the Australian Stroke Play, the Spanish Amateur and the English Amateur en route to becoming the world number one.Willett said: “I loved everything about team golf with England when you had a group of guys taking on Wales, Scotland and Ireland.“You maybe had 40-50 of the best players from the UK there and you were trying to impress for Walker Cup places and Jacques Leglise teams.“You wanted to beat everyone, you certainly didn’t want to lose to a rival country, but there was still a great camaraderie.“Yorkshire normally had quite a good bunch and we were well represented.“But you caught up with people you hadn’t seen since the last event and I was good pals with Oliver Fisher and Tim Sherrard among others and it was great to get everyone together.”Willett has won seven times on Tour and, at 32 years of age, has arguably yet to reach his prime.As a youth, Willett was always earmarked for a great career – and his English amateur win at Royal St George’s in 2007 remains a landmark moment.“It was a great week,” recalled Willett who beat Matt Cryer by a 3&2 margin to lift the silverware.“I played a lot of good players that week and then beat Matt in the final.“It was the end of a pretty exceptional summer and the culmination of lot of good golf that I played at that time.“To win any event is brilliant – to win on home soil in front of England officials and organisers it was a really special one to get it under your belt.“It was a great golf course to win on too – and I’ll now need to wait until next year to go back with this year’s Open postponed.“Oddly enough I haven’t played there since I won the English Amateur“I was looking forward to going back, but it’s more just looking forward to The Open as an event.“For an Englishman, The Open in England is truly special just as it is for a Scotsman in Scotland or the Irish boys last year at Portrush.“You take Opens wherever they are – they are always phenomenal, but it’s great to get a home crowd.“I have fond memories of that place and it’s been a helluva long time since I played it. To go back as professional with a different golf game would have been a lot of fun.”As a Yorkshireman, Willett remain fiercely proud of his home county and still keeps one eye on the amateur game.The rise of Rotherham’s Ben Schmidt, pictured above, in the last year has caught his attention.Willett added:”I still chat to Graham Walker about the lads coming up through Yorkshire and different bits and bobs.“There are a couple of players in Yorkshire – Ben being one – and I keep track even though life is busy.“I’ve tried to help him out for a few things here and there. He’s young, but he has to keep working hard and see where he gets.“It’s good and well winning, but the scores he was posting were the thing to look out for. That’s the impressive part.“He’s also won in Australia and if you have a game that travels, then that’s a good thing.”Next in line for the England squads – already treated to sessions with Matt Wallace, Matt Fitzpatrick, Tommy Fleetwood, Meghan MacLaren and Bronte Law –  is a Q&A with Ryder Cup player and European Tour winner Chris Wood.

Commuters React to NYC Grand Jury Chokehold Decision

first_imgBy John BurtonRED BANK – If the New York City grand jury deciding the Eric Garner chokehold death case were made up of a group of commuters at the Red Bank train station the outcome would have clearly been different.A random sampling of a diverse group of those arriving and departing on NJ Transit trains Wednesday evening, following the grand jury decision to not indict NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo in the July 17 death of Garner had many of them expressing disappointment, in some cases anger and resignation and even some offering support for the decision.“Racism is alive and well in America,” offered one Asbury Park woman, who declined to give her name, as she waited for the train home.“It was unfair,” that decision to not indict, said Felicia Johnson, Brick. “The video itself showed it was unnecessary. There was no reason to do that,” she continued, referring to the officer’s action to place Garner under arrest resulting in a struggle.“It’s wrong they keep getting away with that,” Johnson continued, meaning police and referencing the shooting of unarmed Ferguson, Missouri, youth Michael Brown by a local police officer and that grand jury’s decision to not indict.Daniel Farley, who works in New York and lives in Metuchen, said he initially wasn’t aware of the grand jury’s decision until he checked his smart phone on the train. “Ferguson was a different ball of wax,” believing there was some question there. “There should have been an indictment here,” he said.Walking to catch the train Farley said there didn’t appear to be any disruption in Manhattan—at least none he was aware of. “I didn’t see anything. I just kept my head down and kept going,” he said. “Like always.”And he didn’t think there would be, at least not to the level that occurred in Ferguson, he added.“I’m sure there won’t be violence,” thought Ethan Ledley.But as Ledley spoke, CNN was reporting that demonstrations were beginning to get underway around New York with participants holding signs with “I Can’t Breathe” written on them.Ledley lives in Brooklyn, New York, and was in Tinton Falls Wednesday on business. “I’d think it’s unfortunate,” but not an entirely unexpected decision, he said. Given this incident and outcome, “There definitely needs to be some changes made with the NYPD” in education and training, Ledley said.In light of the jury’s decision, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio Wednesday called for calm.“You can call for it, it don’t mean you’re going to get it,” responded Danny Corrick, who was waiting to get home to Newark.“There’s no difference between this and Ferguson,” Corrick said. “In both cases somebody died—unnecessarily.”Carlo Rivera, a Red Bank resident returning from Jersey City, saw it differently. “The police have to protect themselves,” he said, adding the grand jury “should give him a break,” referring to Pantaleo. Rivera, however, said “They”—meaning police—“need to learn how to deal with the disabled.”Garner was accused of selling illegal loose cigarettes on a Staten Island street this summer when he was approached by police who attempted to place him under arrest and a scuffle erupted. Police used a chokehold with Garner, who was unarmed and suffered from asthma and diabetes, complaining, “I can’t breath,” and resulting in his death. The incident was captured on video by an onlooker and has been widely broadcast.last_img read more
