Lebert Halliman will be the Manning Cup football head coach at Kingston Technical High School (KTHS) next season. “Yes, this is definitely so,” Halliman confirmed to The Gleaner. “I will be taking over the reins as football coach at Kingston Technical High School as next year is their big anniversary celebration and I am hoping I can give them a gift for that,” he added. Halliman was asked why he never coached his alma mater this season. “At Excelsior (High), if you are working and you resign your job, your boss would want to know why, but this was not the case. I tendered my resignation because of certain things and they have not asked any questions. “I was going through some internal difficulties there and I think they really wanted me to go, so not hearing from them, I had to make my own decision,” explained Halliman, who is ‘ready’ to start working at KTHS. “It is a challenge,” he said. “They (KTHS) have a rich tradition in sports, but in the last 20 years they have not been doing so well, and I think it will be a challenge for me as there is a lot of inner-city youth, male and female, who need help and I think I can contribute in that area and also ensure that Kingston Technical can assist me in that area,” he continued. Halliman was asked about his immediate goals. “I have seen the team play and there is talent there, but at the same time, there is a lot of indiscipline among the players and I think they need to get organised and have that sense of wanting to represent the school. I do not think they know about the history of the school, and this is why they behave like that,” said Halliman. The coach said he had been in discussions about the job for some time. “It has been a long journey, as we have been in discussions for the past few months, and the alumni and the Kingston Technical family really wanted me to return. So I think you should take the opportunity where people want you to come and support them,” he reasoned. “If you plan to work hard and you are getting the support, your job will become easy. It was the same thing at Excelsior, they were nowhere around, as they were at the foot of the table. And in the 12 years I have served them they have done well, as we won our zone, won Manning and Walker Cup along with Colts Under-16 more than once, and it is just to take on a new challenge and work,” he said. Asked if he had any regrets leaving Excelsior, Halliman said: “Every past student wants to contribute to their old school and I think I have done enough there, but the way I left it was not the fitting way. But that is now water under the bridge.”
Add Russell ‘Midnight’ Thompson and his vivid story-telling – fiction with a sprinkling of fact – the five- or six-strong Wynter clan, all representing the black and green, and the call was like that following a Sir Garfield Sobers extra-cover drive – “not a man moved”. They all craved their ‘I was there’ status and had to be seen in the place – talk about distraction as the distant sound of a gunshot, piercing the air at intervals, indicating the start of yet another, seemingly irrelevant race. There was a cost for all this. Those highly anticipated races went by without the visual input of some of the most ardent followers of the sport. Thank you, ‘Stewie’ Spencer for passing by and bringing the group to attention as to what had been missed. It was a good day, and the hospitality of the homesters was first-class. It only needs a little fine-tuning to get the event in more spectator-friendly mode. Calabar has a tradition of excellence in the sport to uphold. Wint and McKenley started the trend, and those now in the limelight are carrying the baton, protected by a host of well-wishers. There can be no better way to concretise the tradition of the ‘Utmost for the Highest’. They were summoned to perform last Saturday, and the response was tumultuous. “Here, Sir.” Good job, Calabar! NOT A MAN MOVED Saturday, January 23, 2016, was a significant day in the already richly endowed history of Jamaica’s track and field. It signalled the dawn of a new day in which Calabar High School hosted a track meet on a home-based, synthetic surface. The event was in honour of two of its athletic products who have etched their names in the annals of the sport around which the country has received its most global acclaim. That such prominence, privilege, and prestige should have gone to Red Hills Road was indeed fitting, given that school’s meaningful contribution to the process. The celebrants, Herb McKenley and Dr Arthur Wint, stand as the first two Jamaicans to record medals at the highest echelon of the sport. These came at the 1948 London Olympics when the country, not then an independent nation, huddled under the Union Jack, singing God Save the King, took gold (400m) and silver (800m) from Wint’s efforts, and silver (400m) from the McKenley performance. As if by a divine mandate, with the demands of history not to be denied, Saturday last was to feature a spectacle that could not have been accorded a more appropriate stage. On display, opening the year of the XXXI Olympiad, were two home-grown athletes of a more recent generation, both given to top world ranking at their age levels in the 400m, similar to Wint and McKenley. Javon Francis and Christopher Taylor have made their announcement that they would be factors to be considered when up against their global competitors. Francis took the spotlight at the 2013 Moscow World Championships after a spine-tingling anchor run in the 4x400m relay that plucked a silver medal out of nothing. His 44.00 split called to mind the gold medal, world record-breaking leg of 44.6 at the 1952 Helsinki Olympics by the undisputed great, Herb McKenley. Taylor ran to Jamaica’s only gold at the World Youth Championships in Cali, Colombia, last year, registering 45.27, not only a national youth (Under-18) record, but the second-best ever for a 15-year-old. If ever the healthy tradition was on the doorstep of repeat greatness, the time must be now – the prospect of it being cemented, mouth-watering. That the raison d’Ítre for being present was sidelined is testimony to the atmosphere and ambiance that was the Red Hills facility on the day. The presence of old stagers in local scholastic sport, representing the administrative, supporter or on-the-field cohort, detracted somewhat from the competition, however enticing. This columnist, in several aborted attempts to take up trackside viewing advantage, was thwarted by absorbing conversation with such sporting stalwarts as Bernie Panton of a former local governing body fame and a Calabar old-timer; ‘Bowla’ Morant of mid-60’s Fortis football glory; and Devon ‘Stone Age’ Smith, who they all acknowledged to have been a fierce middle-order batsman at the host school.
MANCHESTER UNITED (4-3-3)DE GEA, DARMIAN, SMALLING, BLIND, SHAW, SCHNEIDERLIN, CARRICK, DEPAY, MATA, ROONEY, YOUNGTOTTENHAM HOTSPUR (4-2-3-1)KANE, CHADLI, ERIKSEN, LAMELA, MASON, BENTALEB, ROSE, VERTONGHAN, WIMMER, DIER, LLORISThis is first game of the Barclays Premier League season; the Old Trafford game kicks off at 12:45BST to begin the exciting PL marathon.It is also a huge season for both clubs with Manchester United hoping to improve on fourth place last term – when they finished 17 points adrift of winners Chelsea – and Tottenham (who finished fifth and a massive 23 points behind the Blues) desperate to break back into the top four of the Barclays Premier League.Spurs will be hopeful of improving on a record of just one defeat (and three draws) in their last six home and away league games against the Red Devils.And United boss Louis van Gaal will not need prompting that he began his league career at Old Trafford on the opening day of last season with a shocking 2-1 reverse against Swansea City. Indeed, that was United’s first opening-day defeat since 1972.United have been busy in the summer, signing winger Memphis Depay (PSV Eindhoven), Torino right-back Matteo Darmian, midfielders Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin, from Bayern Munich and Southampton respectively, and Sampdoria goalkeeper Sergio Romero. Most should be involved against a Spurs side that were keen on Schneiderlin last season.United are without Marouane Fellaini, who is banned after receiving a red card against Hull last season. They also give tests to Marcos Rojo, Javier Hernandez and Anders Lindegaard, while Angel Di Maria left United on Wednesday for Paris St-Germain.Spurs signed Cologne’s Kevin Wimmer, Kieran Trippier of Burnley and Toby Alderweireld, who spent last season on loan at Southampton before moving to White Hart Lane permanently from Atletico Madrid.
With the IAAF World Athletics Championships about to get under way in Beijing, China, Supreme Ventures, through their JustBet sports betting brand, has released the top betting odds in the market, for the upcoming track-and-field showcase. JustBet is the best bet for winning odds on Usain Bolt and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce to win the 100-metre events.All eyes will be on the men’s 100 metres, which will see defending champion and world record holder Usain Bolt going up against Justin Gatlin, Tyson Gay, and Asafa Powell. Odds on the world record being broken in the men’s 100 metres are a whopping $10, which means that for a $1,000 bet, the payout would be $10,000.Fans can also place wagers on the “head-to-head” winner of the Usain Bolt and Justin Gatlin matchup, should they advance to the final of the event. Odds on Bolt beating Gatlin are $1.75, which means that a $1,000 bet would pay $1,750 to the bettor. Odds on Gatlin beating Bolt are $2, which means that a $1,000 bet would pay $2,000.JustBet has so many betting options available for variety that odds are also available for predicting the winning time in the men’s 100m final. For example, odds on the winning time ranging from 9.60 to 9.70 are $2.50, while odds on the winning time being 9.59 or under are an amazing $12, which means a $1,000 bet would pay $12,000.To sweeten the pot, odds are also being offered on the 1-2-3 finishers in the final. Odds on Bolt, Gatlin, and Powell finishing 1-2-3 in that order in the final are at $3, which means that a $1,000 bet would pay $3,000.Incidentally, odds on Asafa Powell winning the 100m gold are listed at $15, which means that $1,000 bet would pay $15,000.Odds for the favourite Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce to win the 100m “head-to-head” against the rest of the field are $1.40. This means a $1,000 bet will pay $1,400. For the risk takers, a bet for any other participant in the 100m field to beat Shelly-Ann, pays odds of $2.70, which means a $1,000 bet will pay $2,700.As Jamaica seeks to eclipse their medal tally of nine medals inclusive of six gold, from the 2013 World Championships, odds are being offered on Jamaica’s total medal count and gold medal count for this year’s Championships.
‘very pleased’ BEIJING, China: Competing at her first World Championships, Commonwealth Games bronze-medal winner Janieve Russell has looked the part, showing composure and confidence as she booked her spot in tomorrow’s women’s 400 metres hurdles final. Russell came close to her personal-best 54.75, and seemed to have a lot in reserve, as she crossed the line in 54.78 to finish second to World Champion and gold-medal favourite Zuzana Hejnova, 54.24, with Meghan Beesley, 55.41, taking third. The University of Technology student came off the corner in good shape and held her form, staying close to Hejnova the whole time and showing impressive maturity in her execution of the race. “It feels pretty good, and I’m very excited,” she said. “The aim was to make all three rounds, and I’m glad I accomplished that goal. Hopefully, I can get a personal best in the final, if not a medal. If that doesn’t happen, I will still be happy since it’s my first World Championships. “The Commonwealth Games certainly broadened my experience because the field is as good as the championships, because you are going against all seniors who have been to the Olympics and World Championships. So this has helped me to learn the pace and be more confident,” added Russell. “I am very pleased. It’s very close to my personal best, which is why I say that in the final, I’m sure that I can do very well and come out with a personal best. So I’m really excited right now,” she added. The former Holmwood Technical standout also pointed out that having Hejnova in her semi-final did not affect her either way. “Having her (Hejnova) did not affect me at all. I went out there telling myself that we all trained hard throughout the season; it’s about who wanted it the most, and I just went out there with guts and heart,” Russell said. The women’s 400m hurdles final is set for tomorrow at 8:10 p.m. (7:10 p.m. local time), and will also see Kaliese Spencer’s involvement. – A.L.
BOURNEMOUTH (4-1-4-1)FEDERICI,SMITH, COOK, DISTIN, DANIELS,SURMAN,RITCHIE, GOSLING, ARTER, STANISLAS,KINGMANU(4-2-3-1)MARTIAL,FELLAINI,LINGARD, SCHWEINSTEIGER, SCHNEIDERLIN, MATA,DARMIAN, BLIND, SMALLING, McNAIR,DE GEAManchester United must bounce back from Tuesday’s 3-2 defeat in Germany against Wolfsburg, which saw them knocked out of the Champions League.After winning 1-0 at reigning champions Chelsea, Bournemouth should be confident of facing United at the Vitality Stadium. That victory, only their third of the season, took the Cherries out of the bottom three.Indeed, Bournemouth became the first newly-promoted side to beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in more than 14 years.United, now fourth in the Barclays Premier League, arrive hoping to shake off their habit of featuring in goalless draws; Louis van Gaal’s men have been involved in no fewer than eight 0-0 stalemates in 2015, their most in a calendar year since 2005 when they notched up 10.However, United also have nine clean sheets this season; in the last campaign they kept 11.This is the first time these teams have met in the league, though in eight cup ties, United have won five, drawn two and lost only one – in the FA Cup in 1984.

Brown pleased with winning start Former Jamaica College outstanding jumper Clayton Brown made a winning indoors start for his new school, the University of Florida last Saturday. Brown cleared 2.25 metres to win the men’s high jump at the Clemson Orange and Purple Invitational meet. Brown, who won the Class I high jump event at last year’s ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls Athletics Championships and who was fourth in the triple jump was pleased with his winning performance. “I feel very good about my performance and I did better than I expected,” said Brown. He is looking forward to greater success in the upcoming season. “The competition here is great and I am looking for more success in the season,” concluded Brown, who will compete in Virginia Technical meet in two weeks time. – Raymond Graham Klopp’s decision backfires Juergen Klopp’s decision to field Liverpool’s youngest ever team backfired yesterday as the Premier League title contenders were held 0-0 at home by fourth-tier Plymouth in the third round of the FA Cup. Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino also made sweeping changes, and was made to sweat as his side left it late to beat second-tier Aston Villa 2-0.
