NewsSports Under 13 Team to leave for St Kitts on Wednesday by: – August 23, 2011 Manager of the Under 13 Team, Fernix ThomasA fourteen-man squad will leave for St Kitts on Wednesday to represent Dominica in the 2011 St Kitts Under 13 Invitational Cricket Festival, which will be held from August 24th to 30th.The unit is being captained by Brian Joseph and includes six surviving players from last year’s squad.Manager of the team, former Windward Islands fast bowler, Fernix Thomas is confident that the team will represent the island well, following weeks of intensive training, which included a few trial matches at the Windsor Park Stadium.“We are very confident that we can capture the championship this year. We’ve worked hard despite the little hiccups that we’ve had in the weather but I think with the program that we have with the Youth Division; it has helped us very well. We’ve been able to select a very balanced team including players from the National Youth Team and the Gary Sobers School Team, and so we are very confident that we can do well and should do well in St Kitts.Thomas is hopeful that with suitable training, these young players can grow into becoming professional international cricketers in the not-too-distant future.“Continuity is something that we expect but we know that we have some difficulty as they move from one category to the next. We are hoping that when we are finished with these players that the Cricket Association can continue with them and with the talent that we have, we should reap some great rewards from the group that we have at the moment”, said Thomas.The team is being coached by Thomas Kentish, who also expects a good performance from the players.The full squad includes Brian Joseph, Shervon Dorsette, Terrel Toussaint, Kassim Peltier, Lestus Lewis, Dion Burton, Leic Charles, Gamaliel Ophar, Josh Toussaint, Tahj Tavernier, Maldini Royer, Leslie Lewis, Ajaya Royer and Paulson JosephParticipating teams will come from the islands of Antigua, Anguilla, Barbados, Bermuda, St Kitts and Nevis and there is also a Nevis Development Team.Dominica is expected to play five games at the festival.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

Raiders’ Jon Gruden: Antonio Brown ‘ready to go’ after using certified helmet

first_img Andrew Luck injury update: Colts QB (lower leg) won’t practice this week Antonio Brown heads into the team’s performance center as practice starts and helmets come on. pic.twitter.com/6hUg4jTKom— Scott Bair (@BairNBCS) August 20, 2019Brown reportedly returned to the Raiders on Monday as the team broke training camp in Napa, Calif., but filed another grievance against the NFL over the issue.Per NFL.com:“(Brown is) arguing that he should be afforded the same rights provided to other NFL players to have a 1-year grace period to phase out his helmet in the 2019 season. He claims the NFL is arbitrarily applying rules.”It’s been a messy couple weeks for Brown. First, the helmet he had worn with the Steelers was removed from the NFL’s approved list and he lost an arbitration appeal to use the old model earlier this month. Then, Brown and the NFL reached a compromise which would have allowed him to use the helmet model he likes if he could find one made within the past 10 years. “He’s all in and ready to go,” Gruden told reporters. “That’s my understanding. Really happy to have him out here. He’s a great player.”After partaking in the walk-through before the workout, Brown was seen exiting the field and heading to the weight room as practice started and helmets came on, though he later returned for the end of the team’s stretch.

However, the league reversed that decision Sunday after the helmet he chose went through additional testing and failed.Should Brown’s latest helmet actually clear all the hurdles with the NFL, he could be ready to make his Oakland debut next month.Always turn a negative to a positive #Boomin— AB (@AB84) August 20, 2019The Raiders have two preseason games remaining before they host the Broncos in their regular-season opener Sept. 9.last_img read more
