Martinez has plans for Neville

first_imgNew Everton manager Roberto Martinez intends to speak to former Toffees captain Phil Neville over a possible coaching role. Former England international Neville spent eight years with Everton after leaving United in 2005. He said he would consider numerous offers to move into coaching full-time or step into the media after his involvement with England Under-21s ended. Martinez is building his backroom staff following his appointment last week. One man who will need replacing is former Scotland defender David Weir who, after being interviewed for the Toffees’ top job, has left to become manager at Sheffield United. Martinez said: “I spoke with David Weir and he is a phenomenal gentleman and it is a real shame – the timing of the opportunity of management is something he had to take. “It is a real shame he hasn’t been able to be part of the project because he is someone that would have fitted in really well.” Neville, 36, has retired as a player and made moves into coaching by taking up a role with England Under-21s at this summer’s European Championships. There has been speculation linking him with a post at his first club Manchester United, under his old Everton boss David Moyes, but Martinez believes he could have a role at Goodison Park. Martinez told evertontv: “I think Phil Neville is an Everton icon and I think he can bring a lot into his time as a coach. I really want to speak with him and see how he feels about his future.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Routledge wins red card appeal

first_imgSwansea winger Wayne Routledge has successfully appealed against the red card he was shown against QPR on New Year’s Day and will face no further punishment. “I’m losing a bit of faith. It’s hard for us to keep faith when we continually have decisions like this, big moments within games. “That sounds like me moaning, I’m not at all. I’m just telling you the facts. “I hope the red card gets rescinded because that will 100 per cent be the right thing to happen. “We’ll be appealing for sure. My player goes from nearly having his leg broken to getting sent off, I don’t see how that can happen.” Despite the red card, Swansea mustered a stoppage-time leveller through Wilfried Bony, cancelling out Leroy Fer’s strike for the hosts. Routledge was sent off for his reaction to a strong tackle from Karl Henry in the 86th minute of the 1-1 draw, with Henry booked for the challenge. The dismissal had left Routledge facing a three-match ban but that has been lifted after his appeal was upheld. A Football Association statement said: “Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing on Friday 2 January 2015, Swansea City’s Wayne Routledge has had his claim for wrongful dismissal upheld. “Routledge was dismissed during his side’s 1-1 draw against Queens Park Rangers on New Year’s Day for violent conduct. “The three-match suspension has therefore been withdrawn with immediate effect.” Routledge’s red card was one of a number of decisions from referee Anthony Taylor which upset Swansea – as QPR goalkeeper Rob Green should have been sent off for handling outside his area early in the match. Swans boss Garry Monk described Henry’s challenge on Routledge as a “leg-breaker” and said the officials were mistaken in believing Routledge had kicked out in response. “It’s a leg breaker,” Monk said. “I think everyone knew in the stadium apart from the official and then the double whammy of our player getting sent off for apparently kicking out. “He doesn’t kick out at all. I just hope justice is done not just for us but for football in itself. Press Associationlast_img read more

You can reach him via email at mmandell@ellsworthamerican.com. Latest posts by Mike Mandell (see all) Latest Posts ORONO — Nearly a year to the day after the Ellsworth and Mount Desert Island boys’ swim teams fought to the wire for the conference title, the two delivered another classic showing.The Ellsworth boys edged MDI in another back-and-forth battle at the Penobscot Valley Conference championships Friday at the University of Maine. The meet came down to the end with the Eagles edging the Trojans 308-295 to win their second consecutive PVC crown.“Ellsworth has a very good boys’ team again this year, and they swam a fantastic meet,” MDI head coach Tony DeMuro said. “We had some good swims, but it wasn’t our best meet overall. Hats off to Ellsworth because they deserved it.”Ellsworth began the day with a team win in the 200-yard medley relay, and MDI was close behind with a third-place finish. The next event was the 200-yard freestyle, in which Ellsworth sophomore Sean Hill placed first with a time of 1 minute, 48.86 seconds as the Trojans’ Tyler Woodworth claimed second in 1:54.96.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textAfter Ellsworth’s Camden Holmes won the 50-yard freestyle with a time of 21.51 seconds, MDI got its first win of the day when Sam Mitchell won the 1-meter dive with a score of 229.4. The Trojans followed Mitchell’s win with a solid effort in the 100-yard butterfly, in which Liam Sullivan, Amos Price and Zeke Valleau placed a respective second, fourth and fifth.In the final five events, Ellsworth reached top gear wins from Sean Hill (500-yard freestyle) and Sam Pelletier (100-yard backstroke) as well as team wins in the 200- and 400-yard freestyle relays. Isaac Weaver finished third in the 100-yard breaststroke for MDI, which placed second in the aforementioned relays.“The final relay lifted us,” Ellsworth head coach Jim Goodman said. “The boys battled an aggressive MDI team, but they prevailed in the end. All of them had great times.”Ellsworth and MDI also had strong days on the girls’ side; the third-place Trojans earned 189 points to edge out the fourth-place Eagles’ 183. Bangor won the girls’ meet with 281 points, and John Bapst took second with 194.For MDI, sophomore Adria Horton won the 500-yard freestyle with a time of 5:34.31. Ruby Brown had fourth- and fifth-place finishes for the Trojans in the 200 and 100 freestyles, respectively, and Addy Smith placed fifth in the 200-yard individual medley. MDI placed second in the 400-yard freestyle relay and third in the 200-yard freestyle relay.“As far as the girls’ meet went, I don’t think I could’ve been much happier,” DeMuro said. “They had all-around fast times in every race and set themselves up to do really well coming up at states.”Ellsworth’s Kristy Barry won the 200 IM for Ellsworth and set a team record in the process with a time of 2:18.73. The Eagles also got a team record in the 200-yard freestyle relay with Barry, Ellie Clarke, Caitlin MacPherson and Miriam Nelson taking second place with a time of 1:43.99.Elsewhere, Clarke earned runner-up finishers in two events, finishing 0.16 seconds behind Bangor’s McKayla Kendall in the 50 freestyle and 0.11 seconds behind Rachel Hand, also of Bangor, in the 100 backstroke. On the diving board, Elena Springer placed second for Ellsworth with a score of 303.35.The teams will return to UMaine next week to compete in the state championships with the boys’ meet scheduled for next Saturday, Feb. 16, and the girls’ meet set to be held Monday, Feb. 18. Both meets will start with the diving competitions at 10 a.m.“We have many state qualifiers, and it will be an exciting meet to watch,” Goodman said. “It’s been a great season, and we are all very proud of both our teams for their dedication and perseverance in achieving both their personal goals and those of the team.” MPA approves golf, XC, field hockey, soccer; football, volleyball moved to spring – September 10, 2020center_img Bio Hospice volunteers help families navigate grief and find hope – September 12, 2020 Ellsworth runners compete in virtual Boston Marathon – September 16, 2020last_img read more

Syracuse faces toughest rebounding test of season in road contest with No. 15 North Carolina

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on January 26, 2015 at 12:30 am Contact Jacob: jmklinge@syr.edu | @Jacob_Klinger_ If a shot goes up in a gym where Syracuse is playing and it doesn’t go in, more often that not, the ball ends up in SU’s hands.It helps the Orange (14-6, 5-2 Atlantic Coast) stay in games when its shots aren’t falling. It’s helped the team recover from slow starts and poor free-throw shooting. Rebounding is an area of strength for Syracuse, but it’s an area of dominance for the Orange’s next opponent, No. 15 North Carolina (16-4, 6-1).Syracuse has hung with frontcourt-heavy teams this season, giving its sometimes stuttering offense extra possessions. But when the Orange tips off against the Tar Heels at 7 p.m. on Monday, it will meet its sternest test on the boards this year. UNC is first in the ACC and second in the country in total rebounds per game, hauling down an average of 43.5 per contest. “I don’t think it’ll be a problem,” SU point guard Kaleb Joseph said. “If we go in there and stick to the game plan and execute, I think we’ll be fine.”SU is tied for fifth in the conference and 35th in the country in rebounds per game entering Sunday. In Wake Forest and Georgia Tech, Syracuse has already beaten two of the top five rebounding teams in the conference despite getting outrebounded by both.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Orange limited the Demon Deacons to 11 offensive rebounds as SU snagged 24 defensive boards and 15 rebounds on offense. And when Syracuse does give up an offensive rebound, the team’s not giving up many points. When it does, it loses.Syracuse has allowed 10.7 second-chance points per game in ACC play off an average of 11.6 offensive rebounds per game. Clemson and Miami are the only two conference opponents to have more second-chance points than offensive rebounds against the Orange. They’re also SU’s only conference losses.“We’ve got to go rebound with a lot of teams, a lot of big people,” SU forward Rakeem Christmas said. The Tar Heels boast an average rebounding margin of plus-9.9. In the only two games where Syracuse has been outrebounded that badly, the Orange lost to Clemson and beat conference bottom-feeder Georgia Tech by a point.Against Miami on Saturday, sophomore forward Tyler Roberson had 14 rebounds. Eleven of them came on the defensive glass, keeping the Hurricanes from getting extra looks while SU tried to dig out of double-digit deficits.“We had to limit some of their second-chance points and they really made us work on the glass,” SU forward Michael Gbinije said. “They did a good job of rebounding and the rebounds that we got were tough ones.”The North Carolina team that Syracuse faces on Monday, though, is more than the best rebounding team the Orange will face this season. The Tar Heels are the top team SU has played since it lost to Villanova, 82-77, on Dec. 20.In the Dean Smith Center on Monday night, Syracuse will be put to its toughest test on the glass and those loose balls off of missed shots will be more valuable than ever.“Tyler, Mike, they’re doing a great job down there trying to get rebounds,” Christmas said. “The rebounds lead to offense for us.” Commentslast_img read more

#ThisFallBelongsToAll

first_imgLast fall, the Wisconsin Athletic Department rolled out a five-course social media scheme surrounding the return of Heisman finalist Montee Ball. A Youtube video was released, centering the attention of an entire university on one man.Next came the city buses emblazoned from front to back with a picture of Ball, accented by the catchy hashtag “#ThisFallBelongsToBall.” It was almost as if the basketball team didn’t exist or the defending national champion cross country team had disappeared. Thankfully, that was 2012, and this is 2013.2013 has no social media center of attention, and many Wisconsin athletes are doing social media right. Simply following these accounts will bring you closer to Wisconsin athletics. In 2013, I say “#ThisFallBelongsToAll.”Beau Allen (@beau_allen), FootballNow a senior, Allen is known on the football field for stuffing running backs and playing in every game since he stepped foot on campus. He’s one of just nine Badgers to have never redshirted. He’s also known for something else.Allen unintentionally mooned a healthy portion of the Rose Bowl audience this past January when his pants were yanked below his rear during Wisconsin’s third-consecutive defeat in Pasadena. It was a near-perfect moment because not many people would be able to simply laugh it off. Allen could because he laughs a lot of things off. His Twitter account is about 90 percent hilarity.Most of his tweets are laden with sarcasm, but just about every one comes from his day-to-day life. This includes outdoor sports in the summer and just about anything that comes to his mind, including notes about his awful golf game.He may not have the 10,000-plus followers James White has, but his account is probably worth that many.Sam Dekker (@samdek1), Men’s BasketballDekker has only spent one year on campus, but in the short time, the campus got well acquainted with him. It’s kind of hard not to.The Sheboygan native invites his 19,000-plus followers into his daily tasks, which – in the fall – seem to include little more than practicing basketball and watching the Milwaukee Brewers. Dekker is extremely committed to displaying himself and his life on Twitter and Instagram, even throwing in the occasional Vine video of him tossing water on point guard Josh Gasser (@JPGasser21).No other Badger exposes the life of UW student athletes quite like Dekker. Plus, he’s also very good at basketball.Drew Conner (@drew_conner1), Men’s SoccerLike Dekker, Conner has spent just one year on campus at UW, but his short time has been met with no shortage of Vines.He may have less than 500 followers on Twitter but he is one of the most active Badgers on Vine. When he’s not scoring goals, he’s likely chronicling every abnormal step in his life through the looping video app.It’s goofiness pieced together with creativity and it’s pretty great.Luke Kazmierczak (@MartinLutherKaz), Men’s SoccerProbably owning the most creative handle of Wisconsin athletes, “Kaz” is surprisingly followed by just more than 100 people on Twitter. For any freshmen set to arrive in Madison from the Massachusetts or the Northeast, Kaz is definitely your guy.He’s a Boston native and an avid New England sports fan. He’s also not afraid to show it on Twitter, live-tweeting every big Bruins, Celtics or Patriots game with as much emotion as 140 characters allows.The men’s soccer reserve hasn’t seen much playing time on the field, but that doesn’t mean he shouldn’t have at least 200 followers. If something important is on TV, Kaz is likely tweeting about it, whether it’s game seven of the NBA Finals or the ever-compelling Miss America competition.John Gullberg (@j_gullberg, jrgullberg on Instagram), Men’s GolfAt times, Twitter can be brash. Thankfully, Kevin Systrom and Mike Kreiger created Instagram. And for the golf lovers out there, Gullberg is likely the best Badger to follow on both social media outlets.Gullberg definitely doesn’t tweet as much as the other athletes mentioned, but he posts photos to Instagram just about every day. You’ll find classic golfer shots of whichever course he’s currently playing, but the obvious fan favorite are photos of his three dogs. Rightfully so, they seem to find their way to his Instagram just as often as the fairways.This group offers a taste of life as a UW athlete. And if they can’t satisfy the social media needs prompted by Wisconsin fans and students, hopefully The Badger Herald can. Follow us @BHeraldSports for updates on all things UW athletics.
