Ferdinand: Welbeck hungry for goals
Rio Ferdinand can sense Danny Welbeck is desperate to avoid a second season of goalscoring underachievement. Press Association Welbeck has passed that figure already with his brace at Swansea last weekend, with Ferdinand confirming his team-mate had returned for pre-season training with renewed determination. “Every other department of Danny’s game is fine,” said Ferdinand. “It is just the goalscoring. “Many people forget he was playing on the wings a lot of the time last season but you still expected him to score more goals. “You can tell from the way he has approached the season, the way he is training and the way he looks at the moment he has got it in his head he wants to get on the goalscoring sheet. “You can see that in the positions he is taking up. He is a lot more threatening now.” Ferdinand has spotted the same traits in Robin van Persie, but for different reasons. Having secured the Golden Boot in addition to his first Premier League title last season, Van Persie’s controversial move from Arsenal worked out perfectly. But, as with Welbeck, he too wants more. “Robin doesn’t want to be remembered as a one-season wonder,” said Ferdinand. “He doesn’t want people to think about him as just coming here, doing well in that one season but not being able to continue. “He wants to do it over a number of years. He is on course to be remembered in that way.” Like so many of his United team-mates, now Van Persie has got the taste for medals, he has no wish to lose it. “Robin is not a short-term kind of guy,” said Ferdinand. “It is all long term for him. There is a thought process behind everything he does. “It is all geared towards him being as good as he can be on a weekend. In that sense, he is just doing what you expect. He is a top player.” Despite forcing his way into Roy Hodgson’s first-choice England line-up, Welbeck’s scoring record for Manchester United last term left much to be desired. The 22-year-old found the net on only two occasions for the Red Devils last term, with his single Premier League strike coming against Stoke in October.

Chahal sparks England collapse as India win T20 series
BENGALURU (Reuters) – Yuzvendra Chahal spun a web around England’s batsmen to pick up six wickets and fire the hosts to a series-clinching 75-run victory in the third and final Twenty20 international on yesterday.Chasing 203 for victory, the touring side collapsed spectacularly to lose their last eight wickets in 19 deliveries for the addition of eight runs as they were dismissed for 127 in the 17th over.Leg-spinner Chahal’s figures of 6-25 were the third best in the shortest format of the game.Earlier, Suresh Raina and former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni scored brisk fifties to power India to 202-6 after England skipper Eoin Morgan won the toss.India lost batting mainstay Virat Kohli to a run-out early but Raina, who made 63 off 45 balls, and KL Rahul (22) gave the team a good platform with a 61-run stand for the second wicket.Rahul was bowled for 22 by Ben Stokes but replays later showed the umpire had missed the paceman overstepping the bowling crease.Dhoni then struck his first T20 international half-century on his way to a 36-ball 56 and, with another experienced batsman in Yuvraj Singh, flayed the English attack to take India past the 200-run mark.Left-handed Yuvraj, who hit England fast bowler Stuart Broad for six consecutive sixes in the World Twenty20 in 2007, smashed three sixes and a four in four balls off paceman Chris Jordan in his knock of 27 from 10 balls.England looked well set to push India close and were 114-2 in 12 overs after Morgan smashed part-timer Suresh Raina for three sixes in an over costing 22 runs.But they lost their way against leg-spinners Chahal and Amit Mishra and after Joe Root was dismissed for 42 and Morgan for 40 the remaining batsmen all fell cheaply.Umpire Chettithody Shamshuddin, who had upset England with a couple of contentious decisions in the last game in Nagpur, withdrew from his on-field duties before the toss after complaining of illness.India also beat England in the Test and One-Day series.

From then to now, the Upper Demerara / Kwakwani District 10 has emerged as the most dominant in the history of the National Championship and the pivotal roles, played by both MHS and Multi, cannot be denied and some of those athletes who were outstanding through those years were on hand to witness the battle of the titans and among them were former athletes, Michael Goodluck of Mackenzie High and Sandra Baird of the Christianburg-Wismar Secondary ‘Multi’ School.
