Cricket great Clive Lloyd knighted in Queen’s New Year Honours List

first_imgWEST Indies cricket legend Clive Lloyd has been given a knighthood in the New Year Honours List.The 75-year-old heads a long list names from West Indies cricket to receive the award, with the likes of Sir Gary Sobers, Sir Everton Weekes and Sir Viv Richards all honoured.Although Lloyd received a CBE in 1993, the belated nature of Lloyd’s award might be explained by his hailing from Guyana, which became a republic in 1966, coincidentally the year in which Lloyd made his Test debut.While Richards plus the likes of Sir Curtly Ambrose and Sir Richie Richardson in 2014 were knighted directly by the government of Antigua, Lloyd has had to wait for his opportunity.In addition to his success with the West Indies, Lloyd played for almost two decades for Lancashire, with whom he retains a strong affiliation.The impact Lloyd had during his playing career at Old Trafford was emphasised by the county’s then captain Jack Bond, who said: “His value to Lancashire cannot be measured by ordinary standards.”Lloyd was named captain of the West Indies in 1974, three years after being awarded the prestigious title of Wisden Cricketer-of-the-Year.At the time the West Indies were far from a dominant force in world cricket, and after an embarrassing Test series defeat in Australia in 1976, Lloyd vowed: “I promise we will never get another flogging like this while I am captain.”Lloyd was true to his word as he went on to establish the West Indies as a global force, as well as returning statistics which make him one of the finest Test captains of all time.He led the West Indies in 70 Tests of which they won 36. He also led them to two World Cup wins in 1975 and 1979 and was the first West Indies player to achieve 100 international caps.After retirement, Lloyd became a respected international ICC referee and also served as both a director of the West Indies Cricket Board and briefly as its chairman of selectors.

WG golfers have mixed results in league showdowns

first_imgShare this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story However, no other Warriors round was lower than Kyle Kirkby’s 47, and WG had Jake Weaver put up a 41, with 42s from Ryan Joyce  and Dan Benetti as Peyton Mullane clinched the win with a 43.WG then made it back-to-back wins on Aug. 30 by edging Fayetteville-Manlius’ White team 207-212. Mullane and Weaver led this time around, their 38s just ahead of Kevin McDermott’s 40 as Benetti had a 43 and Ryan McLane finished with a 48. Ryan Till shot a 49.A rematch with Liverpool loomed on Thursday afternoon at Westvale, and while it was closer, the result was the same, WG doing just enough to beat the Warriors 194-197. When it won the Section III Class AA tournament in 2018, the West Genesee boys golf team had not gone through a spectacular reason, and instead peaked right at the end, when it counted most.Perhaps not wanting to wait as long in 2019, the Wildcats got a crucial win on Aug. 29 at Liverpool, where depth mattered in WG’s 206-212 victory over the Warriors.Kevin McDermott shot a 38 at Liverpool Country Club, the low individual round.  No other Wildcat broke 40 as three Liverpool golfers –  Spencer Baum, Dylan Husted and Connor Boland – each shot 39. On Liverpool’s side, Husted tore his way to a 32 and Baum shot 34, while Boland had a 37. Then it went all the way down to a 44 from Dante Cassella and a 50 from Kyle Kirkby.Far more consistent, had all of its players shoot between 37 and 40,  Weaver leading the Wildcats with a 37 as McDermott had a 38, Benetti shot a 39 and 40s were posted by Mullane and Joyce.This tough week concluded with WG welcoming Fayetteville-Manlius Green to Westvale in a first-place showdown, and while the Wildcats had some good rounds, it still lost 187-197 to the Hornets.Mullane’s 35 beat every individual except F-M Green’s Adam Butch, who had a 33. Three other Hornets broke 40, while only McDermott (38) joined Mullane in that category for WG as Benetti and Joyce both shot 41 and McLane added a 42.Skaneateles improved to 4-1 with its 217-251 victory over LaFayette on Aug. 30 at Orchard Valley, with Ty Jones again at the forefront for the Lakers thanks to his nine-hole score of 38.Tyson DiRubbo remained consistent, finishing with a 41, while Shawn Luce earned a 43. Drew Henderson, with his round of 47, was one shot clear of the 48 from Spencer Mack.Another win came on Wednesday, Skaneateles playing in its sixth consecutive road match but still finding enough to defeat Tully 222-238 at Vesper Hills.Jones continued to pace everyone, recording a 35 that was well clear of the 42 shot by Luce. DiRubbo and Henderson both finished with 47s and Charles Pinckney and Reese Dunn had matching rounds of 51.Westhill prevailed on Aug. 30 against Homer, a 217-230 decision at Cortland Country Club fueled by a 40 from Anthony Maglisco and a 41 from Aidan Ryan. Luke Gilmartin and Mike Britt each shot 43, with James Hunt contributing a 50.Back home at Camillus Hills last Tuesday, Westhill won again, 220-251, over Chittenango, with Maglisco’s second straight 40 just clear of a 41 by Ryan.Hunt improved to a 44, matching the Bears’ Tyrus Kelly, while Devin Young got a 47 and Britt added a 48, and Westhill followed up on Thursday with an impressive 203-227 victory over Tully at Camillus Hills.

The Alberola make double: they call today to Madrid and Castilla

first_imgRodolfo Molina & nbsp; (DAILY AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>FOOTBALL 19/20 Antonio Alberola Rojas, next to Quique Setién.Rodolfo Molina (DAILY AS) The Alberola Rojas brothers, Antonio and Javier, will be in charge of whistling Real Madrid today against Celta and its subsidiary, Castilla, against Rayo Majadahonda. There is the strange coincidence that two brothers dedicate themselves to arbitration and that they also ring the same day at the same club.Javier, the little one with 28 years, pita in First Division, siendor the youngest referee to debut in the highest category of Spanish football. This will be the third time I whistle the whites and the second time at the Bernabéu. The first time was in a Cup match against Melilla, which ended with a 6-1 in favor of the whites. The second was this season in the victory of Mallorca 1-0. Within the CTA he is very well considered and is considered an arbitrator with a great international projection. His brother, Antonio, 29, will whistle Castilla de Raúl before the Majadahonda on Cerro del Espino. The Castilian-Manchego referee usually referees in Segunda B, but also serves as the fourth referee in LaLiga Santander matches on occasion. On February 2 he did it at Barcelona-Levante. “Many times they confuse us, they tell me that I have been arbitrating in some field and it was really my brother,” Javier recently confessed in the Game.last_img read more
