Media Release – Cavendish Road SHS

first_imgStudents at the school study touch football as a subject and the results are outstanding. The girls are especially successful and they are the current World All Schools Champions having first won the title in Singapore in 2006 and then successfully defending their title again in 2008. Last year the under 15 girls won the prestigious Qld All Schools title from almost three hundred competing schools.The school contributed no less than three girls to the successful Australian under18 team, which won the Trans Tasman series in Auckland last year.In July of this year the under15 girls team have accepted an invitation to travel to Bristol, UK to compete in the European Championships where they will play in the Open Women’s division against teams including England, Scotland, Wales and France. This in itself will provide a very real test for the young Cavendish Road students.The school team has a number of talented indigenous students including Qld representative and team captain Tracy Hill, who it is hoped, will one day emulate Bo Dela Cruz the Australian Women’s indigenous superstar.The girls are coached by former Australian Women’s team, triple World Cup winning coach, Peter Bell. Mr Bell, a PE teacher at the school and coordinator of the touch excellence program says, “The girls have been training and fundraising for some time. They are really focussed and looking forward to the experience. While we are reasonably confident of doing well, this is more about contributing to the development of the sport of touch in Europe and importantly in schools in the UK.” The team will tour around Britain and France in a lead up to the Euros and will conduct clinics as well as play games in British schools. The cost of the tour is around $60000 and the team would be extremely appreciative of anyone who wishes to help the team financially with their fundraising efforts or otherwise. The school phone number is 07 3394 0773.Related Filesmedia_release_cav_road_cobras__2_-doclast_img read more

22 days ago​Newcastle defender Dummett: Bruce not to blame for Leicester

first_imgAbout the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your say ​Newcastle defender Dummett: Bruce not to blame for Leicesterby Ansser Sadiq22 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveNewcastle United defender Paul Dummett is standing by manager Steve Bruce.Many fans and pundits are laying into Bruce after his side capitulated against Leicester City in the Premier League at the weekend.While Dummett understands the anger, he does not believe the result and manner of the team’s performance were down to the manager.He told the club’s official website: “In the second half we collapsed, and that’s one thing as a team with the players we have, we’ve never really done that in the past few seasons.”We’ve never collapsed and given away the goals we gave away. That’s one thing the manager wanted to address, and I think as a team we knew it wasn’t acceptable.”That’s one thing that can’t happen again. This team has been successful on working hard as a team and sticking together to get results.”Obviously the manager has changed, but we all still know what we have to do on the pitch. We train every day with the manager on different ideas but we all know exactly what our jobs are on the pitch.”The performance against Leicester wasn’t that we didn’t know our jobs. We didn’t put the performance in and collapsed – like the manager said we surrendered.” last_img read more

There’s no jealousy. They’ve all got their own ideas of what they want to do. I want to do a bit of that but I wouldn’t do it at the cost of a club, it’s just not right.”“The challenge is opening the club’s mind enough to go some way to keep up because the whole of the football business is saying ‘all the best with that, we’re going up here’. Stretch and not break. It’s not easy.”last_img read more

There was a feeling that whenever we won the league you came back into the first training sessions, everybody was a little bit lax, a little bit more smiles and happiness, but a little bit less committed,” he told Sky Sports, live on air.“I came in this time and it’s completely different.”Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“The amount of seasons that I’ve started at City where I wasn’t tipped to be one of the two main centre-halves, people forget about that.
