Aston Villa linked with wantaway West Ham star

first_img1 Ravel Morrison in action for West Ham Aston Villa are the latest club to be linked with a move for West Ham misfit Ravel Morrison.The England Under-21 international seemed set to join Italian side Lazio after West Ham made him available on a free transfer.But that deal now seems to be collapsing, paving the way clear for an English club to step in.Villa boss Paul Lambert could well do with an injection of attacking inspiration to get his side climbing back up the table and a gamble on Morrison is not out of the question.The ex-Manchester United player was mentioned as an outside candidate for England’s World cup squad last summer and has also been linked with a switch to QPR after an unsuccessful loan spell at Cardiff earlier this season.last_img

Can you help us reunite this Manorcunningham family?

first_imgAmanda Albones has launched an appeal with Donegal Daily in an attempt to find her husband’s family, who are originally from Manorcunningham. Shaun Marsh’s mother was called Anna Marsh, née Crawford (pictured above). She was born on the 9th of August 1945. Shaun hasn’t seen his Donegal family since his mother’s funeral in April 2001.Anna emigrated to Wigan aged twenty four, where Shaun was raised before he moved to Liverpool. Shaun, raised in Wigan, recalls fond memories of holidays spent in Donegal, and would now like to reconnect with them.It is believed that Anna’s brothers and sisters are called Joe, Billy, Maureen Deveney, and Isobel Rodgers. Shaun estimates them to be in their sixties now, with their children possibly being in their 30s or 40s.Shaun has cousins named Jack, Edwin, Gabriel, Bridget. His aunt Isobel and uncle-in-law Eamonn have children called Maureen, Michael and Sadie.Shaun believes that his uncle Joe worked with an electricity supplier, and some of the family worked on Platt’s Farm and owned Ray cottages. Amanda says; “Shaun can’t recall a lot of details [about his cousins] as he hasn’t seen a lot of them since he was a child, but had seen a few of them at his mum’s funeral fifteen years ago”.She continues; “My husband is alone – his only family is me and mine, his parents are deceased, and he always talk about his time in Letterkenny as a child. We have 4 children and they don’t know they have a large family in Ireland, would be lovely to try to reunite.”Can you help?

Freshman Forest Moses cleared 6-6 to finish third.The men’s team’s sprinters also opened the season with strong performances as Pierce Vincent (Fayetteville, Ga.) was third in the 60 meters (6.90) and second in the 200 meters (22.20).

MARK MCHUGH BACK AS RORY GALLAGHER GIVES CLUB PLAYERS A CHANCE TO IMPRESS

first_imgMark McHugh attended a weekend trial held by new Donegal manager Rory Gallagher. Gallagher has called up over thirty club players for a four-week trial period as he looks to finalize his panel for next season.Rory Gallagher is giving over thirty club players the chance to impress him and his new backroom team by hosting trials over the next month.Gallagher hopes to name a thirty-five man county panel for the forthcoming 2015 season.One familiar face amongst the players at the trial was Mark McHugh. McHugh opted to leave the panel last April, and headed stateside for the summer.However, McHugh played a pivotal role under McGuinness’s tenure and his return will be a welcome boost to Donegal supporters.Former panellists Adrian Hanlon and Gary McFadden were the other players who had played under former manager Jim McGuinness that are hoping to return to the Donegal set-up.Gallagher has called up players who have impressed him during the recent Donegal SFC and Intermediate Championship. It’s expected that they’ll be involved in a number of trial matches, as Gallagher looks to name his squad for the forthcoming season in the New Year.The decision by Gallagher to bring in club players who have consistently impressed in the last twelve months for a significant trial period over the next four week has been praised.Gallagher will hope he can unearth some hidden gems, and hopefully those impressing at club level can continue that form at a higher level and earn a place in the squad. MARK MCHUGH BACK AS RORY GALLAGHER GIVES CLUB PLAYERS A CHANCE TO IMPRESS was last modified: November 24th, 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:Club PlayersdonegalGAAHome-page SportMark McHughnewsRory GallagherTraining Camplast_img read more

Poultry donation highlights effort of Ohio youth exhibitors

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Just prior to Thanksgiving, the Ohio Poultry Breeders Association donated a turkey, four chickens and a gift card to complete the holiday meal to one local Columbus family in need for their Thanksgiving feast.These chickens and turkey represent the Thanksgiving dinner that was purchased during the Ohio State Fair’s Sale of Champions in August, which was in lieu of no poultry shows during this year’s fair due to the threat of avian influenza.The sponsor of the Thanksgiving dinner was the Ohio Poultry Breeders Association and several buyers participated, including Gerber Poultry, Cooper Farms, Weaver Brothers, Case Farms, Hertzfeld Farms, Trillium Farms, Prairie Star Farms, Hemmelgarn and Sons, Cal Maine Foods, Sauder Amish Eggs, Hillandale Farms, Stoller Farms, Kalmbach Feeds, Wendel Poultry Service, Nature Pure, New Day Farms, Mercer Landmark and Kroger Co.The Ohio Poultry Association also donated $1,000 to the Ohio Agricultural Clearance Program, a program of the Ohio Association of Foodbanks, which directly benefits Ohio’s farmers and provides fresh, Ohio-grown fruits and vegetables and shelf-stable, protein-packed foods (including eggs) to more than 2 million Ohioans who struggle to afford food on their own.The Ohio Poultry Association donated $1,000 to the Ohio Agricultural Clearance Program, a program for the Ohio Association of Foodbanks, which allows the Association to purchase surplus commodity products and unmarketable fruits and vegetables, preventing unnecessary waste and reducing losses in the agricultural industry.

What they want is peace in Tinsukia

first_imgFamily members of five men, killed by suspected extremists near Tinsukia on Thursday, have urged political parties and NGOs representing different communities not to give a communal colour to their loss.The Assam police meanwhile said the “cold-blooded murder” had the signs of having been committed by the outlawed faction of the United Liberation Front of Asom, ULFA-Independent, which opposes talks with the government.“I have lost a brother. I don’t want Assam to shut down over our loss and create bad blood that could take the life of somebody else’s brother or son or husband,” Subal Namasudra, the elder brother of Dhananjay Namasudra, one of the victims, said.The 22-year-old Dhananjay was one of the five men of Bisonimukh-Kherbari, about 45 km from Tinsukia, gunned down by six masked men in military fatigues.Last words“Study well [for an exam the next day] — these were my father’s last words before he went out, never to return alive,” said a tearful Sumati Das, daughter of another victim, 50-year-old Subal Das, who had nurtured hopes of her becoming a government officer some day.Ajit Debnath, president of a local Bengali students’ organisation, said the villagers were aware that “vested interests” could politicise their tragedy.“We never had any problem with our Assamese neighbours, never will,” he said.Bisonimukh-Kherbari is an all-Bengali village under the Assamese-dominated Araimuria panchayat across the road that leads to the iconic Dhola-Sadiya Bridge. But most of the panchayat leaders are from the Gorkha-dominated Tol Laopani village nearby.“The killings are an aberration, and we will not allow it to cast a shadow on the bonding among diverse communities whose children go to Assamese medium schools and are in some ways more Assamese than the Assamese themselves,” Jagadish Bhuyan, a former Sadiya MLA and a local resident, said.He advised a team of Trinamool Congress MPs including Derek O’Brien scheduled to visit the village on Sunday to console the families of the victims but not to play with their emotions.’ULFA-I involved’Assam’s Director General of Police Kuladhar Saikia said the Tinsukia district police arrested a suspected linkman of the ULFA-I, Diklai Gogoi, from Sadiya on Friday night. “The man, arrested earlier in connection for alleged link with the outfit, is being interrogated,” he said.The affected village on the banks of the Lohit River is in Sadiya police district. Mugdha Jyoti Mahanta, the chief of the adjoining Tinsukia district assisting in the investigation, said t the police have no doubts about the involvement of the ULFA-I, which denied carrying out the killing.”The modus operandi clearly points to them. The extremists have been selecting villages bordering Arunachal Pradesh for hit and run operations. We have information that they went in the direction of Changlang (in Arunachal Pradesh, controlled by Naga rebels),” Mr Mahanta told The Hindu.Meanwhile, a team of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) visited Bisonimukh-Kherbari and met the lone survivor of Thursday incident — Sahadeb Namasudra, who has been provided security and asked not to leave the village without informing the local police station.Sahadeb could be targeted by the extremists again, police said.ShutdownStray incidents of violence and damage of vehicles marked the second day of a shutdown called by Bengali organisations to protest Thursday night’s killings. The organisations, however, reduced their bandh from 24 hours to 12 hours on Saturday.last_img read more
