DEDICATED members of a junior football club in Warrington worked to ensure the presence of potentially life-saving devices at games.

Matthiola JFC, which offers free-age aged five a chance to play football in the Penketh and Great Sankey areas, has bought a further 11 defibrillators.

The club felt they needed to act after watching Danish professional Christian Eriksen collapse on the pitch during the European Championships last summer.

The fundraiser allowed all players to have access to a defibrillator in case of emergency.

Posting on social media, the club said: “We are extremely proud to say that we have now secured another 11 defibrillators for the club.

“This means that each of our 20 teams will each have their own defibrillator with them during home and away games and in training.

“Our teams play in quite remote locations in the North West which may be inaccessible to medical services, or where critical time would be lost in the event of a cardiac emergency.

“We all saw the impact on Christian Eriksen during the Euros, and that was followed by lives saved in Premier League games through the use of defibrillators.

“They really make a huge difference when called upon, and as a committee we knew this was a risk for our club and we had to do something about it and quickly.”

Since the summer, the club have worked hard to raise more than £7,000 in funds needed to spend on defibrillators.

He says he is in a much better place now if anything happens to players, opposing players, coaches and parents.

The club added: “A huge thank you to the Cheshire Community Foundation, Co-op, London Hearts and the parents who donated to our Just Giving page.

“It’s a phenomenal achievement for any football club, and it will be incredibly rare at grassroots level.

“Every penny we earn as a club from our players’ subscriptions is reinvested to improve ourselves, whether in training, pitch improvements or equipment.

“Our club continues to go from strength to strength, both on and off the pitch.”

Chelsea v Newcastle United – Football Match Report – 13th March 2022 https://fc-zhemchuzhina.com/chelsea-v-newcastle-united-football-match-report-13th-march-2022/ Sun, 13 Mar 2022 16:13:18 +0000 https://fc-zhemchuzhina.com/chelsea-v-newcastle-united-football-match-report-13th-march-2022/ Chelsea edged Newcastle 1-0 on Sunday amid continued uncertainty over the ownership of the club.

Chelsea edged Newcastle 1-0 on Sunday amid continued uncertainty over the ownership of the club.

Kai Havertz, who escaped a first-half sending-off, surged after 89 minutes and finished superbly to give Chelsea all three points and end Newcastle’s nine-game unbeaten run.

Although the result has ramifications in Chelsea’s quest for third place to finish in the top four, the match was played against an uncertain backdrop given Roman Abramovich’s alleged links to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Havertz told Sky Sports: “It’s difficult, we players have the privilege of training and continuing to do what we love. We’re sorry for everyone. The supporters, the workers, not just us. professionals. It’s a difficult time for everyone. We try to give everything for them in the moment. We have to stick together, we try to do that and give them a good feeling.”

The Premier League disqualified owner Roman Abramovich on Saturday after the UK government sanctioned him following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. This left the club faced with a series of strict regulations to adhere to, including the closure of the club shop, the inability to sell goods or offer players new contracts.

Abramovich can still sell the club if the government grants him a license to do so, provided he does not personally profit from any sale. Sources have told ESPN there are still many parties interested in buying Chelsea, including New York Jets owner Robert ‘Woody’ Johnson, as well as Los Angeles Dodgers and LA Lakers co-owner Todd Boehly alongside the Swiss billionaire. Hansjorg Wyss.

Although there was great uncertainty off the pitch, both teams had work to do, with Chelsea looking to cement their place in the top four and Newcastle keen to get further away from relegation worries. Eddie Howe’s side impressed with spells in the first half, Dan Burn closing in from a header before being brought down by a stray elbow from Havertz. David Coote showed Havertz a yellow card and a VAR check upheld his decision amid controversy.

Newcastle’s visit highlighted further ownership issues, following their Saudi takeover completed with the purchase of the club by the Public Investment Fund (PIF) in October. The deal faced strong public opposition in many quarters, given Saudi Arabia’s human rights record and the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in 2018. Khashoggi had criticized the Saudi government and was killed in an act determined by the US government to have been directly ordered by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, leader of Saudi Arabia and chairman of the PIF.

A Saudi flag was unfurled outside at Stamford Bridge and some sections of the visiting assist pushed Chelsea above the uncertainty of their ownership, with technical supervisor and former player Petr Cech saying before the game that Chelsea were working “day by day”. basis at present.

Newcastle wanted a penalty just before the hour mark when Trevoh Chalobah brought down Jacob Murphy in the box, but the referee dismissed their appeals before Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel introduced Romelu Lukaku in search of the breakthrough.

Allan Saint-Maximin also came on from the bench 20 minutes from time and Tuchel brought in Christian Pulisic but it was Havertz who had the last laugh, dropping the ball majestically before finishing clinically to give Chelsea the win.

Howe told Sky Sports when asked about the Havertz incident: “It could have been a red but it’s not going to be screaming from the rooftops but the penalty with the use of VAR, I can’t understand it not was not given or that the referee was not asked to go to the monitor and review his decision. This mocks VAR.

“We are still in a relegation battle. Without any illusions, we have to react and we look forward to great games ahead.”

Football is no exception. Footballing rivalries tend to spice up matches and give fans something to talk about, from legendary on-field rivals like Johan Cruyff and Franz Beckenbauer to some heated events off the pitch.

Rivalry between players is usually contained on the pitch, although it can sometimes boil over.

On that note, let’s take a look at five of football’s most legendary player rivalries with Betway.


#5. MAXI LOPEZ – MAURO ICARDI

Mauro Icardi and Maxi Lopez were colleagues at Sampdoria in Italy’s Serie A, and the two forwards were great friends after Lopez helped Icardi with his move to Italy.

However, it quickly emerged that Lopez’s wife, Wanda Nara, was having an affair with Icardi, leading to their divorce, before Nara and Icardi got married. At that time, Icardi had gone to Inter Milan and Lopez refused to shake Icardi’s hand during a Serie A match between Sampdoria and Inter Milan. The game was dubbed “Wanda’s derby” by the media. Lopez still plays in Italy, while Icardi has since moved to France.

You can download the Betway app and bet on all the action from the top Italian and French leagues wherever you are.


#4. JOHN TERRY – WAYNE BRIDGE

In 2010, it was revealed that then-England captain John Terry had a four-month affair with Bridge’s ex-girlfriend Vanessa Perroncel. High Court judge issued super injunction barring media from publicizing claims; the injunction was withdrawn a week later.

Manchester City and Chelsea met in February 2010, when the Manchester City bridge refused to shake hands with Chelsea’s Terry. Terry’s captaincy in England was also temporarily revoked.


#3. PATRICK VIEIRA – ROY KEANE

Manchester United’s Roy Keane and Arsenal’s Patrick Vieira were well known for their strong personalities in one of the Premier League’s biggest midfield rivalries.

The most notable altercation between the two occurred in the Highbury tunnel before the 2005 game, when the players were lined up. The episode was well filmed, with Keane and Vieira yelling at each other and referee Graham Poll trying to keep Keane under control as the Arsenal players pulled Vieira away.

Keane and Vieira are ranked among the best midfielders in the Premier League, and their rivalry on the pitch has resulted in many memorable games between the two clubs. The Manchester United – Arsenal rivalry remains to this day, and you can bet on every encounter between the two with Betway.


#2. LUIS SUAREZ – PATRICE EVRA

Luis Suarez’s career has been controversial as the then-Liverpool striker was accused of racially abusing Manchester United left-back Patrice Evra in 2011.

Suarez was accused of shouting racist comments at Evra during a 1-1 draw with Manchester United in 2011, which the Uruguayan has denied. He was, however, given an eight-game suspension and a £40,000 fine.


#1. CRISTIANO RONALDO – LIONEL MESSI

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo might be the best footballers to ever play the game, and their rivalry is perhaps the biggest in football, at least according to their fans.

Their football rivalry has existed since the early 1990s, but it reached its peak when Ronaldo joined Real Madrid in 2009. This meant they would meet at least twice a season in El Classico, one of the most-watched sporting events in the world.

‘A consequence none of us would want’: Football club in race to create new stands to avoid relegation threat https://fc-zhemchuzhina.com/a-consequence-none-of-us-would-want-football-club-in-race-to-create-new-stands-to-avoid-relegation-threat/ Wed, 09 Mar 2022 16:35:22 +0000 https://fc-zhemchuzhina.com/a-consequence-none-of-us-would-want-football-club-in-race-to-create-new-stands-to-avoid-relegation-threat/ A football club that has enjoyed a meteoric rise is racing to complete a series of improvements on the ground to avoid relegation.

A football club that has enjoyed a meteoric rise is racing to complete a series of improvements on the ground to avoid relegation.

Stockton Town FC are enjoying their first season in the Eastern Division of the Northern Premier League – fourth in their bid for promotion.

But the Anchors risk being relegated from the eighth tier of English football if they don’t improve their ground with new seats.

Goes here for the latest regional affairs and policy news from Teesside

Next week will see Stockton Councilors decide on plans for two new stands to be erected at the Bishopton Road West stadium.

The existing prefabricated stand is expected to be moved further along the west side of the ground to make way for a six-tier, 200-seater facility.

A 120-seat covered stand is also planned behind the goal at the southern end of the pitch.

Attendance at the MAP Group UK stadium is the highest in the league – with an average crowd of 608 so far this season.

But council officials say the newly planned stands are not in response to this increase in attendance, but to meet minimum ground quality standards set by the FA.

The report added: “Failure to meet the required standards would result in the club’s relegation from the current division.”

Stockton Town have enjoyed great success on the pitch over the past decade.



Stockton Town players celebrate Kevin Hayes’ goal in the FA Vase draw against Ashington

After leaving the Teesside League, their senior team won four consecutive Wearside League titles between 2012 and 2016.

The club’s run in the FA Vase in 2017/18 saw a trip to Wembley and a narrow 1-0 defeat in the final to Thatcham Town.

And the good times continued – with the Anchors promoted from the top tier of the Northern League last season despite the covid disruptions.

A letter submitted by the club’s committee explained how the team now played in the north of England – with the club growing to almost 40 teams covering boys, girls, women and men.

“Never in our wildest dreams did we imagine the success the club has achieved not only on the pitch but also in our wider community with the commitment of the people of the city,” he added. .

Club officials said their facilities were a source of great pride – the new plans being a consequence of some of the successes seen.

The letter added: “This proposal is not to develop a stadium beyond the capacity of the surrounding infrastructure, but simply to provide the minimum standard of spectator accommodation.

“Failure of the club to provide these minimum facilities would result in forced relegation – a consequence none of us would want.

“If these proposals are accepted, it will not increase the crowds who attend our games, but will simply provide them with additional shelter from the winter weather – and allow our older generation of spectators to continue to attend as there will be seats available for them.”

Authorization for the artificial playing surface and renovated stadium was granted in a knife vote in 2015.

Six objections were filed to the latter plans with concerns over crowd noise and drainage.

A Chivers Court resident suggested the club were overstaying their facilities.

He added: “Isn’t it time for them to look for somewhere bigger and more suitable for the club they hope to become?”

A 3.5m high acoustic fence has been lined up on Chivers Court and Meridian Way – with planning officers recommending the new stalls be approved.

A decision will be made at the Stockton planning committee next Wednesday.

Ahead of the meeting, club chairman Martin Hillerby stressed that the plans were not to increase crowds, but to provide more facilities for spectators who show up.

“That’s what we have to provide for football at this level – it won’t add 500 people to the crowd,” he said.

“Crowds are going to be determined by success on the pitch.”

Fellow Teessiders Marske United are currently top of the league – three points clear of Liversedge who have a game in progress.

The Seasiders host Lincoln United on Saturday while Stockton travel to play-off rivals Cleethorpes.

Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jamie O’Hara has encouraged Manchester United to bring in club legend Roy Keane after their Manchester derby defeat.

Manchester United were outclassed by Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday. Jadon Sancho scored for United between two Kevin de Bruyne goals. Riyad Mahrez scored a brace in the second half to complete the 4-1 thrashing.

The Red Devils appeared to have admitted defeat after conceding the third goal and played with it for the rest of the game. Several players have been rightly criticized since the game, including Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Fred carrying the weight.

O’Hara claimed the club needed the leadership of someone like Keane.

😡 “This is what owners deserve.” 😠 “This is the worst group of #MUFC players I’ve seen in my life.”😡 “Maguire has been terrible for years. Look at body language. A shame. »Alex Crook doesn’t hold back in this Manchester United rant 🔥 https://t.co/jVrexOUUfg

Keane is obviously regarded as one of the best captains United have ever had and is known for his direct, sometimes brutal approach. Talk to talkSPORTO’Hara said:

“Why don’t they catch Roy Keane?” Not as a manager, but why isn’t Roy Keane involved at Manchester United? Tell me why he’s not involved.”

He explained how much United needed Keane’s mentality and leadership at the club. He said:

“He’s not just an ex-player, he was the captain of the most successful team in the Premier League. Surely, if I was Man United, and I heard him [Keane] every week on Sky, I wish someone like that at my football club. We have to get this guy in and get these players to have that mentality, have him around, surely?

He added:

“When you play football you have to have that leadership. You have to have those people who can dig into something and roll up your sleeves and fight for each other.

Manchester United players accused of not wanting to do well for the club

Jamie O’Hara has accused the team of not wanting to do well for the club. Stressing the importance of bringing in someone like Roy Keane, O’Hara said:

“I just look at this Manchester United team and they are full of talent, but I just don’t know if they have a heart, a desire. I don’t know if that’s out of the game, maybe they’re worried about a Roy Keane coming in and messing people up. I think you need that in football.”

Several players who are or were permanent players on the bench have gone to other clubs and have performed well recently. Jesse Lingard was a star at West Ham United last season for the second half of the season, contributing 14 goals in 16 appearances.

Donny van de Beek and Anthony Martial are also proving their worth for their new clubs. They joined Everton and Sevilla respectively in January.

🗣 “These guys it’s all about how I look, do I measure up? Are my boots nice? What does my hair look like? Just play the game.” 🤬Roy Keane fills up at the box office with an explosive rant on Manchester United https://t.co/lRUBs1nyTB

At Manchester United there is obviously a lot of talent, as O’Hara claimed. However, the lack of work rate has led to the team underperforming regardless of the tactical system or the opposition they are playing against.

The club have changed managers regularly in recent years, but have failed to bring in consistent players in crucial positions. Currently, the road back to the top seems to be tediously long for the club.

Football: club licensing system part of plans to develop local women’s football https://fc-zhemchuzhina.com/football-club-licensing-system-part-of-plans-to-develop-local-womens-football/ Sat, 05 Mar 2022 15:00:38 +0000 https://fc-zhemchuzhina.com/football-club-licensing-system-part-of-plans-to-develop-local-womens-football/ SINGAPORE — For years, women’s football club Still Aerion struggled with the problem of not having a regular training ground.

SINGAPORE — For years, women’s football club Still Aerion struggled with the problem of not having a regular training ground.

This meant that players traveled anywhere from Boon Lay to Tampines for training – depending on which pitches they could book through Sport Singapore’s (SportSG) dual-use scheme.

But this uncertainty about their place of training has also impacted the attendance of players, who are students and working professionals.

But the club have enjoyed more stability in recent months and have been training at the Bukit Gombak stadium, thanks to support from national agency SportSG, which runs the Unleash The Roar! project with the Football Association of Singapore (FAS).

President Pamela Kong hopes things will change for the better as FAS announced at the Women’s Football Conference 2022 in Singapore on Saturday March 5 its plans to introduce a club licensing system for women’s amateur clubs.

She said: “It will be a long journey. Ideally we will work towards a professional league in Singapore and it’s a small step towards that big goal, but it’s a good first step to take.”

The club license was first introduced in the FAS in 2011 as a list of basic criteria for S-League clubs to participate in Asian Football Confederation (AFC) club competitions such as the AFC Champions League and AFC Cup.

The move to introduce a club licensing system for women’s teams is part of FAS’ plans to lift the local women’s league.

The pilot project will begin with a two-year education phase to help clubs meet the criteria required to obtain a licence, before the system is implemented from 2024.

The criteria that clubs must meet to be licensed fall into five main categories: sporting, infrastructure, legal, administrative and personnel, and financial.

The Straits Times understands that seven Women’s Premier League clubs will be involved in the pilot.

Kong added that she hopes the introduction of a club licensing system will also bring stability to the league which often sees clubs come and go.

Culture, Community and Youth Minister Edwin Tong, who was guest of honor at the event, also announced that women’s football would be included in the School Football Academy program ( SFA), which aims to become a pipeline to produce young players with good technique. capacity.

It was announced last year that 10 schools would participate in an SFA pilot program starting in 2022 and these institutions would eventually participate in a youth league that would run throughout the year.

Each SFA will have a staff of at least four to five full-time coaches, including specialist goalkeeping, strength and conditioning coaches, and performance analysts.

A 71st-minute header from Ben Mee gave Burnley a surprise 1-0 Premier League win over Tottenham Hotspur at Turf Moor on Wednesday.

Mee beat Cristian Romero through the air at the far post to give Josh Brownhill a free kick and give the Clarets their third win of the season.

Harry Kane had hit the bar with a header for Tottenham shortly after the break but Spurs, who beat league leaders Manchester City on Saturday, failed to find a way past Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope.

– ESPN+ Viewers Guide: LaLiga, Bundesliga, MLS, FA Cup, more

Burnley remain in the relegation zone but climb back to 18th place on 20 points, two points behind Newcastle United and Everton but one game less on the former.

Sean Dyche’s side had won 3-0 at Brighton on Saturday and the Lancashire club must regain the defensive solidity and determination that ensured their survival in previous campaigns.

The home side had the best of the first half but were unable to create any real openings against a Tottenham defense that looked far from comfortable.

Spurs boss Antonio Conte brought on Harry Winks at the break and the visitors got off to a better start in the second half with Kane sending a header from a free-kick against the bar.

Pope made a fine reflex save to deny a close-range effort from Ben Davies, but Burnley quickly caused problems for the visitors.

Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris made a fine save to deny a Jay Rodriguez header after a fine cross from influential Dwight McNeil caused problems down the left flank all evening.

Dejan Kulusevski had a chance for Spurs, drifting a shot wide of Pope’s right post after a 70th-minute counterattack.

But then Mee, who had been dominant at the back for Burnley, showed his worth at the other end with his well-taken header sending wet and windy Turf Moor into ecstatic celebrations.

Rodriguez should have secured the win, seven minutes from time, but somehow he went over four yards and he surely had his heart in his mouth when Pope saved substitute Steven Bergwijn in the last few minutes.

The result leaves Spurs in eighth place on 39 points, seven behind fourth-placed Manchester United but two games behind.

In a tight affair, Romelu Lukaku opened the scoring in the second half but the Brazilian side caught them thanks to a Raphael Veiga penalty.

However, Havertz – who also netted the winning goal in last season’s Champions League final – stepped up with a late penalty as Thomas Tuchel claimed his third trophy since taking charge of Chelsea in January 2021.

Chelsea have now won every major club trophy since Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich took over in 2003.

“It never stops. We want to keep winning trophies,” Tuchel said in a pitchside interview before his side received their medals from FIFA President Gianni Infantino.
