In addition, there are some technical issues that needed clarification. As a consequence, the OECS has sought legal advice to address such matters, and once the issues are resolved, member states will accede to the appellate jurisdiction of the CCJ,” said Douglas.He said, “I say clearly that St Kitts and Nevis, as well as states of the OECS, is in full support of the Caribbean Court of Justice and has full confidence in its continuing positive role, as the region moves forward with its developmental agenda.”Caribbean News Now Share Sharecenter_img NewsRegional OECS to accede to CCJ as one unit, says St Kitts-Nevis PM by: – September 9, 2011 Sharing is caring!

EPL: West Ham stun Chelsea

first_imgRelatedPosts QPR slap N8.1b on Eberechi Eze Fulham join Eberechi Eze race Joe Hart pens two-year deal with Tottenham Chelsea had the first half-chance of the match in the third minute when Emerson Palmieri found space down the left before delivering a low cross into Pedro, but the Spaniard saw his attempt blocked en route to goal.Michail Antonio had been selected through the middle for West Ham as Sebastien Haller dropped out, and the Englishman caused plenty of problems with his pace and power in the early exchanges.The attacker had a big chance to send the Hammers ahead in the seventh minute when he met a cross from Cresswell, but the ball sailed over the crossbar from close range.Chelsea were carrying a threat down the other end, though, and David Martin – making his Premier League debut as Roberto dropped to the bench – had to keep out a strike from Mason Mount in the eighth minute.Frank Lampard’s side were the team on the front foot as the half continued to gather pace, and Martin was again called into action in the 17th minute to keep out a deflected effort from Pedro.Reece James then found the outside of the post with a deflected cross before Kurt Zouma wide of the target moments later with West Ham riding their luck in the capital.The Hammers did have another chance through Antonio in the 25th minute, though, with the attacker’s header from a Robert Snodgrass cross bringing a fine save from Kepa Arrizabalaga between the home side’s sticks.Without Tammy Abraham through injury, Olivier Giroud was given the nod for Chelsea through the middle, and the France international was finding it difficult to win the physical battle against Angelo Ogbonna.The final chance of the first period fell to Chelsea when Giroud reacted first to a loose save from Martin, but the Hammers goalkeeper did really well to deny the Frenchman having also kept out the initial effort from Mateo Kovacic, meaning that the two teams were level at the break.West Ham took the lead in the 48th minute when Cresswell collected a pass from Fornals before working some space inside the Chelsea box and picking out the bottom corner with a wonderful finish.Chelsea had a half-chance just before the hour when Zouma climbed highest inside the penalty box to meet another corner, but the Frenchman’s effort was always dropping wide of the post.West Ham then had two opportunities of their own from corners, first Ogbonna saw his powerful header saved by Kepa before Antonio somehow failed to bundle home from close range from the next set piece.Chelsea responded by making two changes with Willian and N’Golo Kante both introduced in place of Jorginho and Pedro, with the latter fading after making a bright start to the contest.Antonio thought that he had sent West Ham 2-0 ahead in the 68th minute after smart work from Snodgrass, but VAR ultimately disallowed the attacker’s effort for handball, handing Chelsea a huge lifeline.The Blues were struggling to make things happen as the match continued to develop, though, and West Ham’s lead still stood entering the final 10 minutes of action at Stamford Bridge.James tried his luck from distance in the 82nd minute, but the right-back’s effort was always rising over the crossbar with the Hammers still ahead in the capital.Pulisic had the home side’s best chance late on after breaking into the penalty box, but the United States international fired just wide as West Ham held on for a huge win.Next up for Chelsea is a home game against Aston Villa on Wednesday, while West Ham will visit Wolverhampton Wanderers on the same night.

Thought you wanted to beat the best, Mayweather asks UFC fighter McGregor

first_imgLAS VEGAS: Professional boxer Floyd Mayweather has taken a dig at UFC fighter Conor McGregor who announced his shock retirement from the sport on Sunday.Mayweather slammed McGregor’s decision to end his career but warned him that if he ever decides to return, he will be waiting to ‘punish him’ again. The American had defeated McGregor in the 10th round of a boxing match in 2017. McGregor uploaded a photo of a cake on his Instagram account and it had a message engraved which read: “Happy retirement daddy”. On this photo, Mayweather replied: “If I’m not mistaken, didn’t you tell Mike Tyson you could beat me if we fought a second time? Now you’re quitting! I thought you wanted to beat the best? Well, if you decide to come back, I will be waiting to punish you again.” This is not the first time McGregor has decided to quit fighting as he had earlier tweeted twice about retirement, both times when he was involved in arguments with the UFC. His last fight came in January against Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone which he won and he has since expressed interest to face a number of opponents. He was tied this summer to face current top lightweight contender Justin Gaethje. A trilogy fight with Nate Diaz was also something he expressed interest in repeatedly and had also tweeted on May 28 that he had accepted a proposal for a fight against MMA legend Anderson Silva.

Bermuda’s Cup Match cancelled  for first time in 118 years

first_imgHAMILTON, Bermuda, (CMC) – Cup Match, Bermuda’s premier domestic cricket fixture between Somerset and St George’s, has been cancelled this year for the first time in its 118-year history, because of the global COVID-19 pandemic.The two clubs, based at each end of the island, made the announcement in a joint release on Wednesday, ending weeks of speculation over the annual game as the island continues to deal with the virus which has killed nine people on the island.“Somerset Cricket Club and St George’s Cricket Club wish to advise the public that the 2020 Cup Match has been cancelled. This decision has been taken in light of the global pandemic and following consideration of all relevant information and advice from key stakeholders,” they said in their statement.The clubs said while they understood the historic and cultural significance of the match, “after much deliberation, it has been concluded that the health and safety of spectators, club officials and players is of greatest significance during these uncertain and unprecedented times”.The mid-summer classic which began as a friendly match between two lodges had been played each year since 1902 without interruption. Somerset, the titleholders, had been due to host the two-day game – which has been accompanied by a two-day national holiday since 1947 – on July 30 and 31.“The classic is one of the most festive times of the year and we encourage all fans of Cup Match to celebrate the two days with friends and family while reflecting on its origins and adhering to any mandated health guidelines,” the clubs added.On Tuesday, organisers of the Eastern Counties Cup, a four-team event, also announced this year’s tournament had been abandoned. Western Counties and Central Counties, which are less popular than their Eastern counterpart, have yet to make a decision about their tournaments.Whether any cricket is played in Bermuda this season remains to be seen. The Bermuda Cricket Board, which does not have control over Cup Match or the County matches, is still weighing its options. While any regular 50-over cricket is unlikely, sources say some Twenty20 games may be played.The independent Evening Cricket League, which features seven teams in each of two divisions, says it is awaiting government approval to start its season, which normally gets underway in early May.last_img read more

first_imgSyracuse forward Jerami Grant will declare for the 2014 NBA Draft.Pete Thamel of Sports Illustrated reported the decision early Monday afternoon before SU Athletics released an announcement two hours later.“After extensive discussions with my family and coaches, I have decided to pursue my dream of playing professional basketball and enter the 2014 NBA Draft,” Grant said in the release. “I am so thankful to Coach Boeheim and the rest of the Orange coaching staff for guiding me throughout my college career, and am grateful to my teammates for two incredible seasons.”Grant is being projected as a mid-to-late first-round pick in most mock drafts after averaging 12.1 points and 6.8 rebounds as a sophomore this season.
