That distant derby of Malaga against San Pedro of the factory Jesús Gil

first_imgOn this day, April 26, 1998, Málaga played its last ‘Costa del Sol derby’. It was a hard time in Segunda B for this team re-founded on June 29, 1994 after the disappearance of Club Deportivo Málaga. The rival was the San Pedro, a peculiar team from San Pedro Alcántara, located 10 kilometers past Marbella (it belongs to this municipality) and two from Puerto Banús. It was a peculiar team, from the factory of Jesús Gil, then president of Atlético de Madrid mayor of Marbella and that he had named his deputy mayor and councilor for sports, Carlos Fernández. Famous years later for his escape after exploding, among others, the famous ‘Malaya case’.It was troubled times for Malaga. But also for San Pedro. For Malaga because, after three years of spending money on footballers, he still did not leave Second B and another sports failure could exhaust the patience of the Zeta Group of Antonio Asensio, the then powerful editor who supported the president, Fernando Puche.But the San Pedro thing was tremendous. It was one of the cards of the Gil conglomerate that was beginning to crack. He had dismissed Carlos Fernández, who was accused of appropriating, allegedly, 80,000 euros in wages for eight footballers. Fernández went from dolphin to Gil’s staunch enemy. From that San Pedro, old men known as Cacho Heredia, coach dismissed on day 23 or the international Tomás Reñones, left badly unemployed. We were at the dawn of all the corruption scandals that ravaged Marbella and shocked Spain. Fernández even accused his former mentor of diverting money from San Pedro to Atlético. A whole soap opera.The oven was not for buns in Malaga. The team was the leader and had 17 days without losing but their coach, Ismael Díaz, was still in the corridor of deathe as he coined himself. A goal from Basti to Manchego in Ciudad Real saved him from dismissal (José Mari Bakero was going to be the replacement). Then the team took a run. But it was not enough. Such was the level of demand. With this tense panorama it was arrived at that party against a San Pedro that the descent played. These were the alignments: José Luis Del Río, Sampedreño coach, lined up the following team: Bernal; Ríos, Javi, Arias, Ortiz; Serrano, Bersabé, Pedro, Melenas; Servia and Raúl. Arjona, Almagro and Bandera also played. For Málaga Rafa; Bravo, Axier, Roteta, Luis Merino; Manolo Herrero, Sandro, Movilla, Pineda; Manolo and Quino. Kiko Ramírez, Javi Artero and Guede also played.The game was very tense because of how much each team played. San Pedro needed all three points to avoid relegation and left with great desire. Málaga, with little brilliance and too much tension, opened the scoring thanks to a goal scored by Miguel Pineda (nephew of ex-Real Madrid, Zaragoza and Málaga Paco Pineda) at 62. With San Pedro overturned in search of a tie Pablo Guede scored 0-2. Málaga assured its presence in the promotion league and went up to Second with infinite suffering while San Pedro ended up descending to Third.Since this distant date, Málaga has not played any Costa Rican derby again. To all this, Carlos Fernández, as we said, fled Spain in 2006 after the outbreak of all the mentioned cases of corruption in Marbella. It has been known that he made a new life in Argentina.(The photo attached to this work is from a preseason game from the following season, 1998-99 precisely in San Pedro. Málaga was already in the Second Division and its coach was Joaquiín Peiró. From left to right Rafa, Basti, Pineda, Mikel Roteta, Sergio and Mayorga.

GLAAD names annual top media picks

first_imgHOLLYWOOD – If anyone wanted more proof that the days of closeted stars are beginning to fade, they needed only look to Saturday night’s 18th annual GLAAD Media Awards. Among the presenters were actors Neil Patrick Harris, T.R. Knight and singer Lance Bass – all of whom publicly acknowledged last year that they are gay and received rousing ovations Saturday night from a supportive crowd at the Kodak Theatre. “For gosh sakes,” an emotional Knight said after receiving a prolonged standing ovation. “I’m very honored to be here. … I’m angry at the inequality we face every day. I hope I can turn that anger toward our fight to be respected as equals.” Knight was followed on stage shortly afterward by Harris, who jokingly goaded the audience, “Oh sure, you stand for T.R.” Aniston, who recently portrayed a lesbian on an episode of the FX series “Dirt,” received GLAAD’s Vanguard Award for increasing the visibility and understanding of LGBT people. Aniston was clearly moved to be joining such past Vanguard Award recipients as Elizabeth Taylor, Liza Minnelli, Whoopi Goldberg, Vanessa Redgrave, Shirley MacLaine and Charlize Theron. Tennis legend Navratilova, who won the U.S. Open mixed doubles title last September, one month shy of her 50th birthday, received the Stephen F. Kolzak Award presented to her by Bass. Recently retired from tennis, Navratilova told the crowd, “Being a champion for gay and lesbian rights is something I will never retire from until we do have full equality – and that day will come.” The awards will be broadcast April 21 on Logo, MTV Network’s cable channel for LGBT viewers and others.

The three out performers joined a star-studded roster of presenters and honorees that included Jake Gyllenhaal, Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Martina Navratilova, America Ferrera, Matthew Rhys, Katherine Heigl and Kate Walsh. In the competitive categories, “Little Miss Sunshine” may have lost out on an Academy Award, but the comedy took the outstanding (wide release) film prize. Among the film’s major characters is a depressed man (played by Steve Carell) who joins his dysfunctional family on a road trip. ABC shows “Brothers & Sisters” (Outstanding Drama Series), “Ugly Betty” (Outstanding Comedy), and an episode of “Grey’s Anatomy” were among mainstream media projects and individuals honored by GLAAD, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. All displayed what the organization called fair, accurate and inclusive representations of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and their issues. “What an honor,” said “Brothers & Sisters” creator Jon Robin Baitz. “I don’t know how you do a show about five children and not have one of them be gay.” last_img read more

DORRIAN CONFIDENT HIS SIDE CAN MAKE AN IMPACT IN OSCAR TRAYNOR COMPETITION

first_imgBrian ‘Dinky’ Dorrian is hoping his side can get off to a winning start on Sunday when they play Cavan/Monaghan select team at Ballyare.Brian ‘Dinky’ Dorrian is confident the squad he has assembled is good enough to get his Donegal League select side into the knockout stages of the Oscar Traynor competition. The former Sligo Rovers reserve and U20 manager, is the current boss at St Catherine’s, and has established himself as one of the top coaches in Donegal over the last decade.He unearthed the likes of Shaun Kelly (Derry City) and Seamus Coleman (Everton) during his time as manager of the underage sides at the Killybegs club. His focus now however, is to prepare the Donegal League side for their forthcoming Oscar Traynor campaign, which gets underway this Sunday.Dorrian’s side face a Cavan/Monaghan select side, who have returned to the competition after a number of years out of it and are something of an unknown entity.However, Dorrian has used his extensive contacts in the game to find out as much as he possibly can about the side he’s facing on Sunday.In the lead up to the match this Sunday, Dorrian spoke to Donegal Daily about his side’s prospects in the competition. Dorrian said, “We’ve assembled a good side, and we’ve a good mixture of experience and quality.“We’ve got both Matthew Crossan and Gary Crossan in the side, and those two have a wealth of experience at a very high level.“Shane O’Rourke who played in the League Of Ireland with Salthill is on-board, and Benny McLaughlin is also involved, so we’ve got a lot of quality and experience in the side.Dorrian admits his side need to give a good account of themselves in this year’s competition after a number of disappointing years in the competition in the last while.Dorrian has adopted an ultra professional approach to the competition, and his side have been preparing for the competition for over six weeks now, he’s hoping their approach pays dividends. “We’ve approached it as professionally as we can, and the players have responded to that really well.“They realise it’s an honour to represent your county at any level, and they’re looking forward to the competition.“We’ve played a number of matches, and we’ve performed well in them, we’ve met up collectively twice-a-week and the commitment the players have given so far has been top class.“We want to give a good account of ourselves, as players and as a management set-up, so we’re leaving no stone unturned in our preparation for the match. Dorrian admitted that neighbours and bitter rivals Inishowen are the benchmark his team are aiming to match.Inishowen reached the final of the competition two years ago, and made a semi-final appearance last year.“They’re a quality outfit, and they’ve shown that over the last number of years, they’ve raised the bar, and we need to get to that level.“But as I’ve said, I’m more than happy with the squad I have, and I believe we can have a good run in the competition.“Our aim is to get out of the group, and then see where that takes us, it’s going to be difficult, but we’re up for the challenge as a group, and are really looking forward to it.First up for Dorrian is that tricky assignment against Cavan/Monaghan on Sunday in Ballyare, kick-off is at 2.30pm.DORRIAN CONFIDENT HIS SIDE CAN MAKE AN IMPACT IN OSCAR TRAYNOR COMPETITION was last modified: October 17th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare 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:Brian ‘Dinky’ DorrianDonegal LeagueHome-page SportnewsOscar Traynor Teamlast_img read more

Vipers ease past hapless Onduparaka

first_img Tags: onduparaka fcStarTimes Uganda Premeir Leaguetopvipers sc Viper are still second in the standingsStarTimes Uganda Premier LeagueVipers SC 3-0 Onduparaka FC St. Mary’s Stadium, KitendeTuesday, 08-01-2019KITENDE – Vipers SC returned to winning ways with a 2-0 victory over Onduparaka at the St. Mary’s Stadium in Kitende.After two conservative goalless draws, the Venoms struck thrice in the second through Geoffrey Wasswa, Dan Sserunkuma and defender Livingstone Mulondo.The Venoms who were starting life with Edward Golola back started strongly with Tito Okello firing wide after a goal-mouth scramble in the Onduparaka area.At the other end, Vianne Ssekajugo made a good run down the left and sent in a low cross which was taped out by Ezra Bida with Vipers goalkeeper Fabian Mutombora struggling.Moments later, Vianne tried his luck from distance but Mutombora dived low to save and Tadeo Lwanga cleared the ball out for a corner.At the hour mark, Geoffrey Wasswa went agonizingly wide from a free-kick after Moses Waiswa was fouled by Rashid Toha.Three minutes later, debutant Innocent Wafula missed a glorious opportunity to give Vipers the lead, connecting poorly with a Yayo Lutimba cross from the left. Moments later, Ssebwato saved a Tito snap shot from just inside the area, sending it out for a corner.At the stroke of half time, Vipers failed to clear their lines after a Gadaffi Gadinho corner and they were lucky to see Toha’s bicycle kick rebound off Ibrahim Kiyemba’s head and out for a throw in.Onduparaka went all out at the start of the second half, dominating the early possession and saw Gadaffi shoot from outside the area but his weak effort was comfortably saved by Mutombora.At the other end, the ever industrious Wasswa made it 1-0 to the hosts. The defender-turn midfielder gathered Kiyemba’s throw in and ran towards goal before dinking the ball over Ssebwato and into the net off the right-hand post.With 51 minutes played, Vipers made their first substitution, sending on Brian Nkuubi for the ineffective Moses Waiswa.Two minutes after the switch, Nkuubi played in Sserunkuma who saw Ssebwato slightly off his line and sent a perfect shot into the back of the net to double Vipers’ lead.The Venoms should have added onto their tally on 56 minutes but Wafula could only look on in disgust as his low shot was deflected out for a corner by Toha.On 59 minutes, substitute Nkuubi tested Ssebwato from distance but the custodian was on hand to purry the ball over for a corner.Four minutes past the hour mark, Wafula was brought off and replaced with Abraham Ndugwa, much to applauses from the home fans.With 19 minutes to play, Nkuubi and Tito played a breathtaking one two but the later could only shoot straight at Ssebwato and Toha cleared the rebound out for a corner. From the resultant kick, Mulondo put the game to bed, heading in powerfully Yayo Lutimba’s pin point corner for 3-0.Vipers had three other opportunities to score a forth but it just couldn’t be. First, Wasswa made an overlap but could not beat Ssebwato from close range. Then Tom Matsiko sent in a ferocious shot from outside the area but was gathered routinely by the Onduparaka shot stopper.The last meaningful action saw Nkuubi shot from distance but his effort flew over for a goal kick.The three points earned consolidate Vipers’ second position on the StarTimes Uganda Premier League table with 29 points from 14 games while Onduparaka remain 3rd after collecting 24 points from 15 games.The other games played on Tuesday:-URA FC 0-1 KCCA FC-Police FC 2-2 SC VillaComments last_img read more

Cloughaneely Band to play at St Patrick’s Day Parade in Liverpool

first_imgBanna Ceoil Chloich Cheann Fhaola is making the journey across the water this weekend to take part in the St.Patrick’s Day parade in Liverpool. This invitation to march in the St. Patrick’s Day parade came from the Liverpool parade director and was accepted by the band committee following the bands success in retaining their All-Ireland Fleadh Junior Miscellaneous Title for three years in a row.Chairperson of the band, Grace McGarvey explains: ’We really have the best bunch of young people and they are a credit to our parish. The commitment each member have given to the band in recent years after winning the All-Ireland title for three years was incredible. We decided to accept the invitation to reward the children for all their effort and dedication. We, the committee, teachers and parents are so proud of them all and I know they will represent our parish with pride this weekend’. The band’s previous trips abroad to Munich in 2000 and Philadelphia in 2009 for St.Patrick’s day parades have given lifelong memories to previous band members.Christopher Barrett, a past member of the Cloughaneely Band, currently teaches the drums and percussion to its members.He said ‘Whenever I meet up with friends that were in the band that travelled to Philadephia, we still share funny stories and memories of that trip. It was an amazing experience to represent your parish, county and country and I know our current band members will do their best and they deserve so much credit for all the hard work they put in’.Since October, band members have been practising every week and have prepared a new music and marching routine for the St. Patricks Day trip. This includes a mixture of their Fleadh winning programme with newer popular show tunes and traditional favourites such as ‘Leaving of Liverpool’ and ‘The Irish Rover’.The band will be putting the finishing touches to this routine at their last practice in Gortahork Hall on Thursday evening. Later that night, they depart for Dublin and travel by boat to Liverpool in the early hours of the morning.The band have also been asked to play at a concert, to entertain an audience of the Irish Diaspora, in the Irish Centre on Friday evening before they take part in the main event, the St.Patrick’s Day parade on Saturday afternoon.In all, 40 band members will march in the parade and this marks a wonderful occasion for band members young and old. We wish them the very best of luck and as a community, we thank them for bringing great success and joy to the parish of Cloughaneely down through the years.Cloughaneely Band to play at St Patrick’s Day Parade in Liverpool was last modified: March 13th, 2018 by StephenShare 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:Cloughaneely BandLiverpoolparadeSt Patrick’s Daylast_img read more
