Yorkshire and Hertfordshire take first day honours

first_img Yorkshire and Hertfordshire took the first day honours in the English Boys’ County Championship on a day of blazing sunshine at Cumberwell Park in Wiltshire. Yorkshire came through a terrific tussle to beat defending champions Wiltshire by 5-4. Meanwhile Hertfordshire were also well tested before beating Northamptonshire – last year’s runners-up – by the same score. Much of the golf was as hot as the weather with birdies frequently needed to close out games. But Yorkshire coach Steve Robinson took his team straight to the putting green after play to fine-tune for their game tomorrow! “I feel proud of the lads and the way they have all battled,” he said. “It was a very tough afternoon and we never thought for one minute that Wiltshire was going to be a pushover. They battled for every point, as we expected – and so did we.” Yorkshire had the edge after winning the morning foursomes 2-1, but Wiltshire came out fast in the singles and won the first two games by healthy margins, courtesy of Cumberwell Park player James Cooper, who birdied the 16th to win 4/2, and Jake Bolton who won 5/4. But Yorkshire’s Barclay Brown levelled the scores again with his own birdie finish on 15 for a 5/4 win. Charlie Thornton carried on the Yorkshire momentum with a par, birdie, birdie finish to win on the 17th. Then it was Jamie Cooper’s turn to fightback for Wiltshire, closing out his match with a birdie on the 17th. But Yorkshire’s Tom North (pictured top), playing in the last game, took his team over the line on the 18th, having withstood a fightback from Tom Stagg and securing his point with yet another birdie. Barclay Brown who won both his matches today – as did his foursomes partner Charlie Thornton – declared afterwards: “It’s better winning for a team than for yourself!”  He made short work of both his games, and was five-under both morning and afternoon. For Wiltshire’s James Cooper there was also the consolation of a 100% record. “I want to try and win every game as it’s my home club, but as long as the team wins, that’s what matters.” However, that wasn’t to be today. Hertfordshire are making their first appearance at Boys’ County Finals since 2010 – when they won the title. Charlie Wilkinson (pictured below), who clinched the day’s win with his 2up victory, is hoping for a repeat performance and comments: “We have a solid team, the strongest team we can put out.” The team also got ahead of in the morning with two foursomes wins against Northamptonshire and when play started in the afternoon their opening singles was quite spectacular. Danny Daniels, who reached the last eight in the British boys’ championship, took on boy international Callum Farr, who recently helped England to win the Boys’ Home Internationals. Daniels had nine birdies, while Farr had six and the match eventually finished 2/1 in Hertfordshire’s favour. Hertfordshire’s other point was provided by James Clark, who was down for several holes on the outward nine but got ahead as he turned for home and steadily worked his way to a 4/2 win. Hertfordshire team manager Chris James commented: “I’m delighted with them all. They had a great approach and managed their game well and were level-headed all the way round.” Northamptonshire’s singles points were scored by Ben Jones, who won 5/4, and by Luke Barney and Robin Williams, who both won on the last.

SA, India sign oil, gas exploration deal

first_img17 August 2012 State oil company PetroSA and Indian oil and gas exploration company Cairn India Group signed a farm-in agreement for crude oil and natural gas exploration in the Orange Basin on the west coast of South Africa in Cape Town on Thursday. The agreement is for the offshore area on the north western border between South Africa and Namibia, which covers an area of 19 922 square kilometres. It is currently in the initial stages of exploration after PetroSA acquired a 1500 square kilometre three-dimensional seismic survey in 2009. The Orange Basin is an emerging hydrocarbon province, with the potential of oil and gas discoveries, and Block 1 will serve as an anchor exploration asset in South Africa, according to PetroSA. Cairn India will hold a 60% interest in the block, through its wholly-owned South African subsidiary, and will be the operator, with PetroSA holding the remaining interest. This falls in line with PetroSA’s ambitions to grow into a leading integrated African energy company. “The company seeks to nurture strategic alliances with experienced international companies across the oil and gas value chain. The partnership with Cairn India starts an exciting new chapter and represents another positive development in that direction,” the company said in a statement. “We are delighted to join hands with one of Asia’s most successful exploration companies. Cairn India brings with it extensive geo-technical and operating capabilities that will combine very well with our experience and understanding of the region,” said PetroSA vice president for new ventures, Everton September. “We have a shared mindset, and together are extremely well placed to realise the full potential of Block 1.” Cairn India Director for Strategy, P Elango, said his company was pleased to partner with PetroSA. “This is an important first step for the company’s growth beyond the Indian subcontinent.” “We see an attractive opportunity to leverage our capabilities in a rapidly emerging area and aspire to build a wider business in the region,” he said.

OR Tambo statue unveiled at Joburg airport

first_imgThe statue of late ANC president Oliver Tambo unveiled at OR Tambo International Airport shows his return to South Africa after 30 years in exile.To honour the memory of late ANC president Oliver Tambo, a statue is unveiled at OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg on 19 October 2017, which was declared the Year of OR Tambo by the national government. (Image: Tambo Foundation, Twitter)Brand South Africa reporterA statue of Oliver Reginald Kaizana Tambo was unveiled at OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg on Thursday, 19 October 2017.Tambo, an anti-apartheid activist, was the African National Congress’s first president, serving in the position from 1967 to 1991. He died on 24 April 1993. Tambo would have celebrated his 100th birthday this year, on 27 October. The statue unveiling was part of the OR Tambo centenary celebrations that are being held across the country under the theme “Life and Legacy of OR Tambo”.The 2.5m statue stands in the International Arrivals section of the airport. It depicts Tambo’s arrival at the airport after 30 years in exile. It shows Tambo stepping down from the last two steps of an aeroplane, waving with his left hand; in his right he holds a briefcase.More changes at the airportIt was a day of celebration: before the unveiling of the main statue, the Air Traffic and Navigation Services (ATNS) auditorium and tower – the traffic control centre – was renamed OR Tambo and an OR Tambo bust was also unveiled.Watch: ATNS tower renamed to OR Tambo. #ORTambo100 pic.twitter.com/XDWCkc4mVg— SA Gov News (@SAgovnews) October 19, 2017WATCH: President unveils the bust and Transport Minister Joe Maswanganyi reads the bust #ORTambo100 pic.twitter.com/3JatAcsJ3E— SA Gov News (@SAgovnews) October 19, 2017Minister in the Presidency Jeff Radebe, one of the celebration programme co-ordinators, said the three events of the day were an opportunity to reflect on the role the stalwart played, especially in the formation of the country’s system of constitutional democracy.President Jacob Zuma said the installation was fitting as it was this airport at which Tambo returned to South Africa in 1990. When Tambo left South Africa on a mission to encourage other nations to institute sanctions against the country, he drove across the border, unnoticed. “When he came back he landed as a hero, a martyr,” said Zuma.Generations will remember OR TamboDali Tambo, son of OR Tambo, was happy with the celebrations. He had gone through four transport ministers and 11 years of campaigning to get a statue of his father installed at the airport, he said. He was pleased it was inside the airport building, because his mother had not liked the idea of it being outside. “Why must people go look for him?”His father would now be remembered by many generations to come – with the statue and information about the struggle hero showcased at the airport, said Dali Tambo. It was a stroke of brilliance to rename Johannesburg International Airport after his father – it was officially renamed OR Tambo International Airport on 27 October 2006.He thanked the people of South Africa who honoured his father in different ways across the country, such as in song, choral music and memorial lectures.In honour of OR TamboEarlier this month, the Reserve Bank and South African Mint released a series of four new commemorative coins honouring the late struggle stalwart. Three of the coins are collectible.In addition, Zuma opened the OR Tambo Heritage Site house in Chelston in Lusaka, Zambia, last week while on a State visit, reported the South African Government News Agency.Source: South African Government News AgencyWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Work goes ahead on Mandela children’s hospital

first_img22 July 2015Construction of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital, in Parktown, Johannesburg, is going smoothly and is expected to be completed in February 2016.Sibongile Mkhabela, the chief executive of the hospital’s trust, said that on completion, the hospital would be handed over for equipment and interior design features to be installed.“The official opening will then take place late 2016,” said Mkhabela.About 150 doctors and 451 paediatric nurses would be employed once the hospital opened. The first phase of recruitment for the hospital had already started.“There are two aspects to the planning of the recruitment for the hospital. Firstly, is the need to upskill nurses as well as fellowship training (post-graduate doctor training). Training for nurses started in 2014 and will be ongoing, and the fellowship training will begin in the second half of this year,” she said.“Secondly, the actual recruitment process which will be led by an appointed human resource committee. The process of recruiting staff is to start in the last quarter of 2015.”Last week, the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital Trust received a R861 074.27 donation from the Department of International Relations and Co-operation and the diplomatic community during Nelson Mandela International Day celebration in Winterveld, Pretoria.Mkhabela said the trust was honoured to have received the support from the department, its representatives abroad, and the diplomatic community at large. “The advocacy displayed by Ambassador Tebogo Seokolo in not only raising awareness but also ensuring a successful fundraising event is admirable.”Seokolo is South Africa’s ambassador to Austria, Slovakia and Slovenia. He is also the permanent representative to the international organisations.“We are also proud that South Africans heeded the call to action to support us as we make Madiba’s dream a reality. It is because we were able to raise the initial funding locally that we were able to stand proud as we invited international donors to join us as partners in this legacy project,” she said.The hospital will be the second children’s hospital in South Africa; the first is the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital, in Rondebosch, Cape Town.Source: SAnews.govlast_img read more


first_imgThere are plenty of aspects about Touch Footy that are unique and one of those is the way that our state and national competitions cater for the masters of our sport. One of the most encouraging sights at the Queensland State Cup and also the New South Wales State Cup is the number of senior players who have traveled to the event. It’s fantastic to see the experienced players, still fit, fast and strong, out on the fields, showing their skills and smarts. Many of these seniors are here because they’ve always been good players. They’ve kept involved with the sport not only because they love it, but because it’s a way to stay fit and healthy, they can catch up with old friends and they can take part with their families. Others are involved because they desire to keep representing their region, state and nation at competitions, including recent international competitions such as the All Nations Championships or the NTL. With so many of our elite Open representatives heading towards their early 30’s, the number of male and female players eligible for the over 30’s is rapidly rising and ensuring that our 30’s sides could just challenge the caliber of our Opens sides. The other great aspect of seeing these senior players still dominating the sport is the experience they pass on to their younger counterparts. Neil Ward, past Australian Mens Open captain, is here in Queensland playing for the Toowoomba Mens Open side. The invaluable experience, leadership and knowledge he brings to their side will no doubt help them through to the finals series. Scott Notley is also here with kids in hand and a leading role in the Ipswich Mens 35’s side. Angela Barr, one of Australia’s most capped representatives, has played at 4 World Cups and in countless other Australian sides and tours and still carves up the Womens Open competition here at Kawana. Playing alongside current Australian Womens Open Captain Sharyn Williams, Angela is no doubt passing along incredible knowledge to the many young players in the Sharks Womens Open side. In New South Wales the situation is no different, with Mark `Bus’ Boland continuing to increase his legend status as he is back for his 20th year competing in the Mens Open competition. For the Penrith Mens Open side, coach David Collins is well aware of how these senior players can positively influence their side’s success. David Cheung has represented Australian senior sides on several tours, including the recent All Nations tour and the 2003 World Cup and is playing alongside youngster Ben Moylan, just 16 years old and recently selected in the Australian 18’s development squad. In both NSW and Queensland there are countless past and present Australian Open and Senior representatives. All I have done here is list just a few. It’s fantastic for the development of our future starts to be playing with and against, or even just watching, these players who have been such important members of past Australian Open teams and recent senior teams and will continue to play such a crucial role in the development of our sport.
