Molynes United oust champs in JN Open League

first_imgA new champion will be crowned this Saturday when the final of the JN Open League netball competition is contested at the Leila Robinson Courts, as defending champions Mico ‘B’ were beaten 20-17 by in-form Molynes United ‘A’ in their quarter-final encounter on Tuesday.The winners booked a spot in today’s semi-finals, where they will face Mico ‘A’ at 7:15 p.m. Other winners UWI Pelicans ‘A’ and Waulgrovians ‘A’ will also play for a spot in the final, beginning at 6:45 p.m.Molynes United ‘A’, rated second in attack and defence, started off on fire and raced to a 7-0 lead as goalshooter Shantal Slater was bang on target, with goalkeeper Kadian Dehaney making it hard for the Mico ‘B’ shooters at the other end.MISSED CHANCEMolynes ‘A’ finished with a 9-1 first-quarter lead, but Mico fought back gallantly to tie the score at 9-9. They got opportunities to take the lead, but two missed attempts by Daniel Masters and Shauna Jones let the chance slip.Their opponents capitalised to lead 14-10 at half-time and the Roy Price-coached team kept their title ambitions on track, as they will face another Mico team, which had an easy 28-17 win over Cablepro.Despite the absence of ace goalshooter Jhaniele Fowler-Reid, who jetted off to New Zealand for the ANZ Championships, the Annette Daley-coached Mico ‘A’ remained unbeaten in this season with a fine all-round display. They led 8-4, 17-15 and 23-13, respectively, at the end of the first three quarters.Goalshooter Taniele Roberts, who took Fowler-Reid’s position, scored 27 goals from 38 attempts, while Petal Smith top-scored for Cablepro with nine goals from 15 tries.There was no luck for Cablepro’s sister team, Jamalco.After a big setback, which saw ace goalshooter Marsha Murphy having to leave the game early in the first quarter after twisting her knee, the Winston Nevers-coached Jamalco lost by two goals, as UWI scored a 25-23 win to book their semi-final place.SMOOTH SAILINGAnother former many-time champion, Walgrovians ‘A’, also booked their semi-final spot, but in a one-sided affair, as they turned back Police ‘A’ 32-16.Having racked up a big 10-1 first-quarter lead, it was smooth sailing for the rest of the way as Waulgrovians ‘A’ led 16-6 after the second quarter and 24-10 at the end of the third stanza, before cruising the rest of the way to set up a clash with UWI ‘A’ in today’s semi-final.The matches will be preceded by the Open League ‘B’ Group semis, with Speg ‘A’ vs Molynes United ‘B’ at 5:45 p.m., followed by Tivoli Gardens vs UTech Knights at 6:15 p.m.- R.

How Man United could line-up after spending £100m budget in January transfer window

first_imgWith Godin available for around £20million, United would still have a further £80million to continue strengthening their defence – meaning a big-money bid could be submitted for Napoli ace Koulibaly.He has been a long-term target of Chelsea’s having performed so superbly under Maurizio Sarri, but the Red Devils now want to bring the Senegal international to Old Trafford. Barcelona are believed to have already had a £62million offer for Koulibaly, 27, rejected by Napoli, but United could tempt the San Paolo club into selling their prize asset by improving on Barca’s bid by a further £18million.Deals for Koulibaly and Godin would instantly propel United’s central defence into the elite category, and they will be joined in the back line by Shaw, who is certain to keep his starting place after his excellent beginning to the season.This would result in Mourinho’s final task being to improve the right-back position, with Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia needing to be replaced and teenager Diogo Dalot lacking the quality and experience to fulfil that task as of yet. REPLY Mourinho has been struggling to get his Man United team firing on all cylinders this season 5 How Man United could line-up after the January transfer window Shaw has been widely lauded as Man United’s best player this season REVEALED shining Latest Football News Godin remains one of the most highly-rated defenders in world football ADVICE And United could bring in a superb upgrade for free, with the Manchester Evening News suggesting Dani Alves could be a target of Mourinho’s following the player’s admission that he wishes to turn out in the Premier League before his career comes to an end.At 35 Alves, the Brazil international, would be nothing more than a short-term fix, but he remains of the highest quality and would bring something to United’s dressing room they have lacked since Zlatan Ibrahimovic departed – experience of winning… a lot.He’s claimed trophies in Spain, Italy and France, and when he won the Coupe de la Ligue with Paris Saint-Germain earlier this year Alves became the most successful footballer in the history of the game.Mourinho has previously wanted to sign Alves, and a move to Old Trafford in January certainly suits both parties.A back line of Alves, Koulibaly, Godin and Shaw would be rock solid defensively and exhilarating going forward, and would certainly put United in a strong position to fight back for a top four finish in the second half of the season. no dice REVEALED Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won Every time Ally McCoist lost it on air in 2019, including funny XI reactions Forbes list reveals how much Mayweather, Ronaldo and Messi earned this decade Son ban confirmed as Tottenham fail with appeal to overturn red card Dalot has shown his potential, but he’s clearly not good enough for United’s first-team right now BEST OF Mourinho made it clear he wanted to sign new central defenders in the summer, and his anger at United’s board over their refusal to support him financially has been backed by the club’s supporters.However, it appears Ed Woodward and co are ready to go along with Mourinho in the January transfer window, with the Portuguese allegedly handed £100million to spend on new players.But how could United line-up after the January transfer window if they splash the cash on a new defence? Ronaldo warned Lukaku how hard scoring goals in Serie A would be before Inter move huge blow Berahino hits back at b******t Johnson criticism – ‘I was in a dark place at Stoke’ It’s expected to be a busy January transfer window for Manchester United.Jose Mourinho is believed to have around £100million to spend as he attempts to guide the Red Devils back into the upper reaches of the Premier League table after a woeful start to the season, which sees the Old Trafford club already seven points behind the top four and trailing league leaders and local rivals Manchester City by a remarkable 12 points. Mourinho plans to return to two of his summer targets in January, though Toby Alderweireld is unlikely to be one of his options. Despite the Belgium international yet to pen a new contract at Tottenham, with his current deal expiring at the end of the season, Daniel Levy, the club’s chairman, is not expected to sanction the sale of a key player in the middle of the campaign – especially with the north Londoners fighting to finish in the top four and secure Champions League qualification.Raphael Varane, the Real Madrid centre-half, and Bayern Munich’s Jerome Boateng were also summer targets of United’s, but interest in the pair appears to have diminished in the months since.In place of this trio, Man United are looking at Napoli’s Kalidou Kouliably and Diego Godin, the Atletico Madrid captain.Mourinho is said to be ‘confident’ of signing 32-year-old Godin in January, and talks are believed to have already been held between United and the player’s representatives ahead of the club triggering the £20million release clause written in his Atleti contract. Only a few of Man United’s players have lived up to their potential this term, with Anthony Martial coming good over the past couple of months and Luke Shaw performing to an elite level since the campaign got under way in August.Questions have been raised over Romelu Lukaku’s quality at the highest level, while Alexis Sanchez’s rise to the top of the list titled ‘worst ever January signings’ is remarkably rapid.However, the biggest issues in Man United’s squad has been their defence, with the aforementioned Shaw outperforming the rest of the club’s back line combined.
