first_imgTo motivate the champions further, no lesser person than Kenya’s Deputy President, William Ruto, footed the cost of return air tickets to and from Kisumu for the champions to jet to their spiritual home without added rigours of road travel.With the mouth watering contest expected to be a high paced encounter going by the attacking nature of both sides, Nuttall said his focus is not on sustaining the unbeaten run but guide K’Ogalo to their third title in a row.“We will approach the game just like any other regardless of where the season is. Our focus is to try and pick maximum points and just as Kimanzi said it’s just like any other game.“I’m not interested on records, unbeaten or milestones and as professionals we know we have to continue being consistence and that’s what we are looking at,” Nuttall told Capital Sport.Gor will be motivated in the match that will be televised live by SuperSport 9 East after Ruto heeded their call to arms with  Sh500, 000 worth of incentive to the self supporting community club that is bereft of the corporate largesse enjoyed by the brewers.Kimanzi who won his first match in three outings last weekend against Sony Sugar, is out to stop K’Ogalo’s party at a venue where they are yet to lose.“It’s just a normal league fixture. We will pick the positives from Sony match and try to work depending on our strength. We go to Kisumu knowing we can give ourselves a good show,” Kimanzi, who is having a disappointing season so far said.K’Ogalo are yet to beat Tusker in four and switching the game to Kisumu, is meant to intimidate the 2012-13 champions since Gor draw fanatical bedrock support in the lakeside city.Nuttall will likely not make changes from his established starting XI that will see former Tusker favourite Oluoch continue with his duty in between the sticks.The back-four of Rwandan Abuoba Sibomana, Burundian Karim Nzigiyimana, skipper Musa Mohammed and Harun Shakava will be tasked to keep Brewer’s top scorer Jesse Were as well as attacking understurdies Clifford Alwanga and Ismael Dunga silent.Okoth, Aucho, Abondo will be looking to steal a match on former team-mates Brian Osumba, Osborn Monday and Kelvin Kimani in midfield.At the rear Kimanzi defenders, Jockins Atudo, James Situma, Lloyd Wahome and Donald Mosoti will have a rough time stopping speedy Michael Olunga and Rwandan Meddie Kagere who will be out to fire past Faruk Shikhalo who took over from Oluoch in the Tusker goal.Other Saturday fixtures will see Western Stima welcome Ushuru in Kisumu’s early kick-off, Chemelil Sugar will be away to Muhoroni Youth whilst struggling Nakuru All Stars take on Mathare United at Nakuru’s Afraha Stadium.Sony Sugar will be up against Nairobi City Stars in Awendo while on Sunday, AFC Leopards will battle it out with Sofapaka at Nyayo National Stadium as Ulinzi Stars host KCB in Nakuru.Thika United will be away to face Bandari in Mombasa.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000NAIROBI, June 6 – Gor Mahia’s 14 match unbeaten run will be put to test this weekend when the back-to-back champions host 10-time winners Tusker FC at Kisumu’s Moi Stadium in the highlight of the final Kenyan Premier League first-leg fixtures.Inform K’Ogalo who enter the titanic clash at the back of three consecutive wins will see head coach Frank Nuttall have at his disposal keeper Boniface Oluoch, midfielders, Ali Abondo, Collins Okoth and Khalid Aucho who played under Tusker coach Francis Kimanzi last season.last_img read more

first_imgHowever, former United and England captain Beckham – who stars in a brand new advertisement to promote the Premier League on Sky Sports– believes Mourinho’s experience of winning titles all over Europe will help him return United to the summit of the game in England.“I fully expect it to work,” Beckham said in an exclusive interview with Sky Sports News HQ. “With Jose leaving Chelsea and now coming back into the Premier League with United, for me it is a great move.“I had huge respect for Van Gaal, but it did not work out the way people expected it to. But I think at the end of the day, now it is a new start for United.“We have had a couple over the last three or four years, which is not the Manchester United style, who are used to a manager like Sir Alex Ferguson being in there for so many years.”Mourinho has won trophies at every club he has coached at and it is that winning experience which Beckham thinks will enable the ‘Special One’ to bring the good times back to United.“We have had quite a lot of change over the last few years,” he said. “So now with Jose in there, he knows what he wants and how to get it, he knows how to win titles.“I think that is what Man United definitely need to get back to and they need to get back to being feared again. Because we were always a club and are still a club that when teams come to Old Trafford, they know they are going to be up against it and they know they are probably going to lose. So that is what we need to get back to.”In fact, Beckham feels Mourinho can win the Premier League in his debut campaign in charge at United.“I am going to have to say United,” Beckham said when asked who will win next season’s title. “I will always be on that side of the fence.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000David Beckham backs Manchester United maanger Jose Mourinho to bring success back to the club.

first_imgBy Rachel Jones STAFF WRITER Following a dedication ceremony that drew more than 1,200 people, students and administrators at Mary Star of the Sea High School are hoping to move in to their new campus sometime this month. Although the 27-acre grounds of the Catholic school are not quite ready for use, the new campus was dedicated Sunday, with Cardinal Roger Mahony celebrating Mass. “It was better than I could have ever dreamed,” principal Rita Dever said of the dedication ceremony. She was pleased to see so many members of the community at the event, including those who are not affiliated with the school or parish. “It really brought the community of San Pedro together,” she said. The Rev. Nicholas Tacito, the school’s rector, agreed. “Everything went really smooth,” he said. “The students were so excited. They said, `When can we move over?”‘ The high school was originally scheduled to move from its current Eighth Street home in August, but construction delays pushed the move back. Tacito and Dever estimate they will move into the new facilities sometime this month. “We’re keeping our fingers crossed, and right now things are going very well,” Dever said. Junior Phil Lantz, who toured the new classroom building with friends, said the students have been waiting a long time to move in. “We’re kind of bummed out that \ got postponed, but it seems well worth it, actually,” he said. Senior Glenna O’Connor agreed. “We like the space. It’s so much bigger than our campus now.” The new air-conditioned facility includes a large gym and 26 classrooms, including modern science labs. The next building phase will bring softball and baseball fields and possibly a football stadium, depending on funding. Booster Club president Mike Ringelman explained his vision for the future football field, which is planned for the north edge of the property on the dirt lot where he stood directing traffic Sunday. “We’re going to be in the press box in Stellamara Stadium, looking out over the fields, over the scoreboard and the Vincent Thomas Bridge all lit up,” he said. “It might be five to seven years from now when we get the phase two and three funding going.” Bob and Corina Congelliere, who have lived at the corner of Sandwood and Taper for 45 years, stood in their driveway watching a line of visitors pass through Mary Star’s gates Sunday. “There’s going to be a parade of cars going by at 8 a.m. and 3p.m.,” Bob Congelliere said. “But I don’t care.” Corina Congelliere agreed that the change would be a welcome one in the quiet neighborhood. “We love kids and we love the action,” she said. Not everyone was in a celebratory mood at the dedication. A handful of demonstrators from SNAP, Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, stood at the school’s entrance with signs and leaflets. Mary Grant, the Western regional director for SNAP, said they were demonstrating because seven known and accused child molesters worked at the school over a period of 40 years. “The main reason we’re here today is to reach out to the wounded, protect the vulnerable, and educate Catholics,” Grant said. Grant said she hoped that those attending the dedication would learn more about the history of abuse at the school and speak up if they were victims. “We’re here to help the police; Cardinal Mahony is here to help himself,” she said, noting that the organization sees Mahony as an enabler. Tacito said he did not think the dedication was an appropriate venue for the demonstrators. “It was a celebration of our young people,” he said. rachel.jones@dailybreeze.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
