TERMON GIRLS WIN COUNTY U13 ‘A’ FINALHarry McGlynn, a name synonomous with ladies gaelic football in Termon and indeed in Donegal, and his daughter Lisa guided Termon’s talented u13 girls team to success last Friday evening. An evening ideal for a county final in O’Donnell park saw Termon overcome Naomh Conaill. With the U14 A title, U12 silverware in the bag and having already overcome the likes of St.Eunans and Glenfin en route to the final Termon entered the game as favourites and didn’t disappoint.From the throw-in Termon’s hunger was evident as Mya Alcorn won the ball and bolted straight up the pitch shooting just wide of the mark. Subsequently Ciara McGarvey won the kick-out to open the scoring with a point. The Glenties’ defence worked hard with Karla Doherty and Orla O’Donnell winning some good ball and working forward but Sarah Kho and Katie Mellett were impassable in the Termon defence and after Sinead McGettigan broke down a Glenties’ attack she passed to Lauren Mullen who fed full forward Aoife Kelly the ball to slot home the maroon and white sides first goal of the day, 1-1 to 0-0. Termon continued their blitz attack with Mya Alcorn adding a further 3points and Aoife Kelly another 1-1. The Glenties youngsters settled and dug deep as Natalie McDaid broke free to fire over Glenties’ first point of the day. Lauren Furey added another point and Grainne Agnew scored a fine goal. Referee Mickey Mulhern awarded a penalty to Emma Doherty and Glenties called on their captain and goalkeeper to strike from the spot. Despite taking the penalty well, hitting toward the bottom right corner of the goals Termon’s Orla Corry pulled off an amazing save, diving across the goalmouth and quickly clearing the ball. Eimeair Alcorn was fantastic in midfield for the burn road outfit as she carried the ball 50metres up the pitch, passed to cousin Mya Alcorn who split the posts once again. Amy McGettigan cut out the following Glenties kick-out and scored a magnificent goal to widen the gap before half-time, 4-6 to 1-2.Naomh Conaill began the 2nd half well but the Termon defence of Sarah Kho, Maeve Doherty and Sinead McGettigan proved too experienced and strong for the young Glenties girls and denied them any scores. However Termon notched up a further 5pts through Casey Gallagher, Sarah Kho, Aoife Kelly, Ciara McGarvey and Amy McGettigan. Naomh Conaill never gave up and Maria Bonnar continued to work hard for her team and got a goal her efforts. Unfortunate for Glenties though hopes of a comeback were dashed as Termon introduced super sub Orla McLaughlin who quickly bagged herself 3-1. Aileen Doherty and Grainne Agnew added another 2pts for Glenties but it was Termon’s Mya Alcorn who got the final say with a goal after some great play from team mate Ciara McElwaine. Final scoreline Termon 8-12 to N.Conaill 2-4.Termon’s experience had proved too much for the young promising Naomh Conaill side. Captain Mya Alcorn accepted the trophy from LGFA county secretary Siobhan Coyle.

Embed from Getty ImagesChelsea boss Antonio Conte was asked about a number of issues at his news conference ahead of Saturday’s game against Bournemouth. Here’s some of what the Italian had to say. Conte on Victor MosesEmbed from Getty Images“Victor Moses trained with us yesterday and today. I will have to check his situation and then make the best decision for the team, but he is available.“Victor has shown he is an important player for us but in the matches against Crystal Palace and Manchester City we showed we can do the same (without him) and that is important.“We are a team and we are not 11 single players. If you are working as a team you must be ready to find a right solution when some players miss games.”On the decision to take Nathan Ake back from BournemouthEmbed from Getty Images“Yes, I think it was the right decision because for us it was important (for Ake) to stay in our squad and also because for us it is important to check our players and then see the improvement.“If we find a player to stay in our squad and to give him the possibility to show me and the club the capacity (to play), why not?“I am happy to have Nathan with us. It is not easy when you arrive and before you there are five centre-backs who are all very good.“I am pleased with his attitude and commitment. He is a good player and it was right to bring him here with us.”On facing BournemouthEmbed from Getty Images“For us this is a great challenge. It is another tough game. For me Bournemouth is a really good team with a good coach.“We must pay great attention, because if we think it is going to be easy we are making a great mistake.”On more reports he could leave this summer“I don’t know why. I can think it is normal to try to involve my name because they want me to come back to Italy.“I stay here and am very happy to stay here. This is the most important thing. I have two more years with Chelsea and this is the truth.”On reports of a tunnel fracas after the Man City gameEmbed from Getty Images“Honestly, no, I didn’t see nothing because I was in the changing room to stay with my players. I didn’t see it, but it’s not important what happened in the tunnel.“The most important thing is what happens on the pitch – and I think a lot of people enjoyed this game. This is the most important thing for us.”On speculation Andrea Pirlo could become his assistantEmbed from Getty Images“In this period I am listening to a lot (of speculation) and this is very strange for example.“Pirlo is playing and wants to continue to playing. I don’t know why someone wants to put out this type of situation, but in football it is normal.“It is important to be focused on the present, which is more important than the future. I prefer to be focused on the present and make this season a great season, not just a good season.”On Claudio Ranieri visiting the training groundEmbed from Getty Images“Claudio is a good friend and I was very pleased to see him in Cobham to chat and spend time together. It was good to see him and I hope to see him again this season.“We have spoken about his experience in England and my experience – the different way to train when you compare England to Italy. It was a good chat and I wish for him the best in the future.“He deserves another job and my hope for him is this. He is ready to take another job. He is a top manager and top coach. I’m sure he will find a new job.”On Spurs playing first on SaturdayEmbed from Getty Images“I don’t think it’s an advantage, because the pressure is the same whether they win, lose or draw. You will have good pressure.“But it is very important for us to look at ourselves, not look at the others. Tottenham’s result is important but our result is the most important.“I see two teams in this race – Chelsea and Tottenham – but anything can happen. There are 24 points (to play for) and other rivals can go into this race.”See also:Conte on Pedro, Morata, Wenger’s comments and Chelsea’s search for players Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Urologists: Men, Forget the Blue Pill!

The Breaking Down Borders Africa Youth Initiative in collaboration with Brand South Africa will be bringing another chapter of this year’s Africa Youth Summit.Brand South Africa’s Ntombi Ntanzi had a quick Q&A session with Founder of Breaking Down Borders Africa Initiative Paul Modjadji on its 2018 Summit.Ntombi Ntanzi(NN): What is the Breaking Down Borders Africa Initiative about?Paul Modjadji(PM): The Breaking Down Borders Africa Initiative is a Pan-African platform that seeks to unite young African change makers. By creating platforms for these young leaders to act in concert. It hopes to break down the barriers that prevent collaborations among young African social and commercial entrepreneurs across the continent.This was born out of the realization, made during the inaugural Breaking Down Borders Africa Tour, that there was a desire to trade on ideas, methods and initiatives among young Africans, but there was bureaucracy that prevented this. The result was the Breaking Down Borders Africa Youth Summit which is a think tank and networking platform like no other – targeted at young leaders and curated by young leaders, all from Africa.NN: What opportunities are there for young people participating in the initiative?PM: The summit is a networking and solutions gathering platform that targets young people from the continent, even if they don’t currently live on the continent. We link these young people with established thinkers in various industries (commerce, academia, politics, etc) who can assist in elevating them and their work efforts;The objective of the summit is to empower young entrepreneurs, be they social or commercial entrepreneurs, to take their work to the next level and start trading from ideas and materials across the continent. We also highlight to the wider community, the issues faced by young Africans and the possible solutions to these issues as envisaged by these young Africans;NN: How has the initiative been received?PM: The reception has been positive from the youth who have taken part in the inaugural Summit and those who have indicated interest in the second edition. There has been support from both government and the general public who fall outside the target market. Most of these people and institutions recognize the need for this platform and that’s why they support it.NN: What is the initiative all about in 2018?PM: In line with the theme for the Nelson Mandela centenary, the theme for 2018 Breaking Down Borders Africa Youth Summit is “African Youth: Building our legacy” – and this year is about creating a platform where we work towards a lasting legacy as young people.This year the Summit wishes to result in a document that can inform policy which may be adopted by the AU and various signatory governments. This we believe is our own legacy as a platform.NN: How do people sign up and participate?PM: To sign up, people must visit our website www.breakingdownbordersafrica.comWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
