first_imgNational senior men’s football team assistant coach Jerome Waite has backed the Reggae Boyz to bounce back from their defeat in the Scotiabank CFU Caribbean Cup final to CuraÁao, with a better performance in next month’s CONCACAF Gold Cup. Jamaica lost 2-1 after seeing defender Rosario Harriott’s equaliser cancelled out, within a minute of him scoring, by Elson Hooi, who got both of Curaco’s goals at the Stade Pierre-Aliker in Fort-De-France, Martinique. Waite instructed the team in the absence of head coach Theodore Whitmore, who was serving a touchline ban after his dismissal for arguing with officials in the previous game. Waite said that the result would have probably been different had the Reggae Boyz played with a different approach. “It was very disappointing to lose a final,” he said. ” Any final is hard to lose. I feel that we need to play the ball more on the ground and not always go direct.” Waite said that patience is needed as he believes a better showing will come from the team during the Gold Cup. “I am sure that for the Gold Cup we can improve, so we can expect greater things then from the team,” Waite said. Harriott agrees with Waite, but went further to say that the team has many new players, who are still adjusting to playing with each other. “Despite having a young team with a lot of new faces, I feel that we are starting to gel,” he said. “Hopefully, by the time the Gold Cup comes around, we will be able to get some positive results back on track.” A WONDERFUL MOMENT The Harbour View FC man, who came into the game as a substitute for the injured Shaun Francis, described scoring in the final as a “wonderful moment. “It’s always a joy coming on and playing for your country. When I saw the injury to Shaun Francis, I reacted quickly and was mentally prepared for this moment. I felt that (scoring) would give us back the momentum we needed to get back into the game and win the title, but it did not turn out that way at all. It is disappointing not to win, because we certainly have the quality in the team.” The Reggae Boyz will now start preparations for their opening Gold Cup game which, incidentally, sees them meeting Curcao a second time in as many weeks in San Diego on July 9. rachid.parchment@gleanerjm.comlast_img read more

first_img– at 175th anniversaryPresident David Granger has pledged Government’s support for ongoing educational programmes being implemented by the Diocese of Guyana, and has noted that religious organisations can play an integral role in the development of communities, and by extension the country.The President made these remarks at a special church service held to celebrate the 175th anniversary of the establishment of the Diocese of Guyana, on Sunday at the Christ Church Parish on Waterloo Street.President David Granger, First Lady, Sandra Granger at the church service on Sunday. Also in photo is Foreign Affairs Minister Carl GreenidgeHe has said the Diocese has been making strides in terms of education delivery since its establishment, and this coincides with his goal of improving access to education for all the children of Guyana.“The Diocese, through the foresight of our first Bishop, established Queen’s College as early as 1844, and later the correctly-named Bishops’ High School, both of which still reflect the high standards set by their Anglican founders…“The Diocese can be assured of my Government’s support for the Church’s educational efforts, as I have supported Hindu and Islamic schools through the National Endowment for Science and Technology (NEST),” the President said.President Granger also said the Diocese has always played a role in the promotion of peace, in assisting the poor and impoverished, and in bringing together people of different backgrounds.“The Diocese came into existence on August 24, 1842 with the consecration of Right Reverend William Austin as the first Bishop of Guiana… The Diocese deserves our gratitude for its service to women, youth, the poor and needy. We applaud the episcopacy, clergy and laity for the propagation of the Gospel in Guyana… The State looks forward to working with the Diocese towards making Guyana a better place, and to providing a good life for all in the years ahead,” the President has said.The Head of State noted that the Diocese occupies a prominent place, and plays a pivotal role in public and private life. He noted that Anglicans constitute almost seven per cent of Guyana’s population. Anglicanism, he said, has transcended race, class and creed, and has deep roots in almost all communities, with churches in every hinterland and coastal region. “Growing up in Essequibo, Berbice and Demerara, I never had to travel more than 30 minutes from my home to reach an Anglican Church, so ubiquitous were they then. The Diocese of Guyana is home to some of Guyana’s most historic churches, the most spectacular of which — the Cathedral of St George — adorns our $100 currency note,” President Granger said.last_img read more
