Johnny Grave Appointed WICB CEO

Posted On Jan 20 2020 by

first_img Grave is currently employed with the Professional Cricketers’ Association in the United Kingdom, where he spent the last nine years as commercial director, and has also held several senior leadership roles at English county side, Surrey. “Johnny has a proven track record of success in his career to date, and a huge amount of relevant experience, and will add exceptional value to the organisation,” WICB President Dave Cameron said. “Johnny was the unanimous choice of the interview panel and clearly shares our vision for the future of West Indies Cricket.” Indeed, Grave’s background appears to make him a perfect fit for the job, given the WICB’s tenuous finances, and never-ending disputes with players over pay, as well as terms and conditions of engagement, which has undermined performances on the field. The WICB said the top priorities for the new CEO would be the management and oversight of its US$40 million budget, the creation of new commercial opportunities, helping to drive revenue into the whole game, along with an increased focus on player relations and improved performances on and off the field. ST JOHN’S, Antigua (CMC): Hoping to expand its commercial footprint, improve its management, and develop a better relationship with players, the West Indies Cricket Board announced yesterday that Englishman Johnny Grave would take up the position of chief executive officer from February. Grave replaces Michael Muirhead in the post, following the Jamaican’s decision to step down last October, and was appointed following what the regional governing body described as “a rigorous recruitment process led by PricewaterhouseCoopers Barbados”. “I am delighted to have been given the honour of becoming the new CEO of the WICB,” Grave said. “I am genuinely excited by the opportunity of improving cricket at all levels within the region, and I am looking forward to working with the many stakeholders who are committed to the long-term development of West Indies cricket.” PROVEN TRACK RECORDlast_img read more

Crusaders, Lions go on seven-try Super Rugby romps

Posted On Jan 6 2020 by

first_imgThe entire Lions front row scored as they punished 13-man Northern Bulls to win a high-octane local derby 49-35 in Pretoria.Melbourne Rebels are another team that have begun the southern hemisphere competition impressively, beating Sunwolves 37-17 in Tokyo for a second successive win.Rebels top the Australia conference by four points, Crusaders have a similar lead in New Zealand and the Lions have opened a nine-point advantage in South Africa.Coastal Sharks and NSW Waratahs drew 24-24 in a Durban contest that was always tense but riddled with handling errors.The Argentine Jaguares are the only side without a point after suffering a third straight loss by going down 34-9 to Wellington Hurricanes in Buenos Aires.Crusaders’ victory may have come at some cost with fly-half Richie Mo’unga suffering a suspected broken jaw.He was taken to hospital after colliding with Stormers prop Steven Kitshoff and could be sidelined for several weeks.Winger George Bridge again tormented Stormers, scoring two tries after notching a hat-trick the last time the sides met in Christchurch.– Second-half test –Crusaders turned around 31-7 ahead at half-time and while Stormers won kudos for a brave second-half comeback, they never threatened to pull off a sensational victory.“We started off pretty well but full credit to them, they came back and tested us,” said Crusaders captain Sam Whitelock. After beginning with a win over the Hurricanes, Bulls paid dearly for ill discipline as they were savaged by the Lions.Conraad van Vuuren was yellow-carded on 54 minutes for offside and fellow forward Nic de Jager went to the sin bin a minute later for collapsing a maul.The Lions added 14 points when numerically advantaged to go 42-21 clear and got a further try before Bulls scored twice in a late rally.“I was really happy with our mauling,” said Lions skipper Warren Whiteley. “We had to fight for the victory and there is plenty of room for improvement.”Stand-in Bulls captain Handre Pollard said: “Losing two players to the sin bin in quick succession proved too much for us.” Hurricanes reacted to a tongue lashing from coach Chris Boyd after losing at the Bulls by scoring five tries in Argentina to climb from last to second in the New Zealand conference.– Rebels double up –All the threequarters bar All Black Julian Savea scored for the former champions, who led 12-6 at half-time and pulled away in the closing stages.Reigning World Rugby Player of the Year Beauden Barrett started for the first time this season and slotted three of his five shots at goal. Mitch Short came off the bench to score a late try and Bernard Foley converted from the touchline to salvage a draw for Waratahs in an error-strewn match.Wallaby fly-half Foley kicked nine points, taking his Super Rugby total to 758. Fellow Test back Kurtley Beale retired injured in the opening half. There was never more than seven points between the teams and Sharks squandered several scoring chances to win after losing their opener at the Lions.“Sharks have only themselves to blame for not winning,” said SuperSport TV analyst and former Springboks coach Nick Mallett.“Their handling was poor, so was some of the passing and decision making, and they gifted two tries to the Waratahs.”After a first half that ended 10-10, Rebels pulled away to start a Super Rugby season with two victories for the first time.Jack Maddocks scored a hat-trick for the Melbourne outfit, whose chief goal-kicker Jack Debreczeni had an off-day, missing three conversions. 0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000The Canterbury Crusaders maintained their imposing home record against South African teams © / John DavidsonBuenos Aires, Argentina, Mar 3 – Reigning Super Rugby champions Canterbury Crusaders and 2017 runners-up Golden Lions scored seven tries each on Saturday as they maintained great early season form with big bonus-point wins.Record eight-time title-holders Crusaders ran in four early tries en route to a 45-28 triumph over Western Stormers in Christchurch.last_img read more

first_imgThere has been widespread shock and anger this evening following the news that Finn Harps have withdrawn a side from the USL interim season.Harps have pulled out of the league after only two fixtures, and the announcement has prompted a negative reaction towards the clubs from leading soccer officials in the county and players in the league.The much maligned USL has seen the standard diminish over the last numbers of years, and that has forced USL executives to return to winter football. It was deemed that the summer model didn’t work and the majority of clubs decided to opt back to a winter format.However, before they return to winter football, a short six-team interim season was to be held and got underway a fortnight ago.However, tonight Finn  informed the USL board of its decision to pull out of the league.That announcement has been met by anger from current USL players who have slammed Harps for letting this situation happen. Many are perplexed that a senior club can’t gather enough players to regularly field a team for the short TEN game season.They’ve been slammed on Facebook and Twitter forums following the news, and after all the positivity coming out of Finn Park over the last few weeks regarding the academy and first team, it’s a devastating and embarrassing blow to the club.The USL will now soldier on with just five teams from the remainder of the season.SHOCK AS FINN HARPS PULL OUT OF ULSTER SENIOR LEAGUE was last modified: February 24th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:finn harpsnewssoccerSportUSLlast_img read more

Do not delay wheat harvest

Posted On Dec 17 2019 by

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Wheat harvest date impacts both grain yield and quality. Delaying wheat harvest puts the crop at risk for increased disease, lodging, sprouting, and harvest loss. Last year in Clark County, we evaluated wheat harvested on June 29 (at 12% moisture content) and July 8 (at 14% moisture content). Grain moisture increased between June 29 and July 8 due to 0.58” rain between the two dates.When wheat harvest was delayed until July 8, yield decreased by nine bushels per acre, test weight decreased by 2.9 pounds per bushel, and DON level increased by 0.86 parts per million. Using a grain price of $4.50 per bushel and discounts from a local elevator, the difference the delayed wheat harvest resulted in a loss of $87 per acre compared to the June 29 harvest.With funding from the Ohio Small Grains Marketing Program, we are continuing this research. However, we will be comparing grain yield and quality of wheat harvested at ~20% moisture to ~13% moisture.last_img read more
