Thursday, 1st July Body Building Triumphant Myers returns home One of Nevis’ top body builders, Jalmyn Myers, returned home on Tuesday evening to a warm welcome By Family members, friends and fellow club members at Bull’s Gym. Myers landed at the Vance Amory Airport at approximately 6.15 pm and was met By Body building Oficial in the Federation of St.Kitts-Nevis, Joseph Liburd and Desmond Liburd, owner of Bull’s gym in Gingerland where Myers does his regular training routines. Asst. Commissioner of Police Joseph Liburd explained that there were some initial nervous moments for the Federation contingent when Myers was not called out for the Novice show down as was expected. Apparently there was a mix up and the other five athletes were called and Myers was not. Myers then found himself in the uncomfortable position of settling the issue with the organizers. However, when he was called as the sixth contestant in the category, the crowd literally went wild and from their response, ‘I knew it was a foregone conclusion’ stated Liburd. Myers won the novice category quite handsomely. He further explained that in the Lightweight category he knew that Myers had his hands full as the more experienced Lucian of St.Maarten not only looked good but gave the crowd a really good show. Myers for his own part indicated that he was not nervous. Once he had sorted out the discrepancies in the first category, he just went and gave the crowd something to remember. He also stated that when he saw Lucian back stage, he decided very early that at least he was going to make sure of the second place in the Lightweight category –and that he did. Desmond Liburd of Bull’s gym fame was totally elated. He stated that Myers had stopped training and stopped coming to the gym and he went after him because he knows the potential he has. “I had to give him some hard words too but he returned and now he is making me proud”, he said. Asked about his next move, Myers indicated that he will be continuing intense training in preparation for his next big event in Aruba, to be held in October of this year–the Caribbean and Central American body building competition. CRICKET Wharton destroys St.James’ Young Taj Wharton cupped the man of the match award for his team as the TDC Primary school crciket competition continued at Grove Park yesterday. Wharton representing the Ivor Walters Primary School versus St.James’ swung his bat lustily for 25 when he batted and then returned to collect 6 wickets to make it a memorable day for himself. Summarized scores: Ivor Walters–104 for 5 from 12 overs: Dennis Browne 34 not out; Taj Wharton 25 and Nahil Browne 13 For St.James’, Captain Melissa Clarke got 2 wickets; Oreon Browne 1 and Chumney 1.

Trott century takes England Lions to victory Cricinfo staff Jonathan Trott’s 118 guided England Lions to victory over West Indies A at Northampton. In a contest that continually threatened to become tense it was the class of Trott, Alastair Cook and Ian Bell that edged England Lions home after a sensational hundred By Keith Edwards carried the tourists to a competitive 279. Trott was unceremoniously dumped out of both England’s limited-overs teams as they looked for the right combination to deliver their new-found ‘fearlessness’, but today he displayed nous and power of his own to anchor the chase to perfection. Set 280 for victory, what had looked a challenging total became harder when Steven Davies, opening alongside Cook, fell for 11 to Gavin Tonge. Davies has been in fine form this season for Surrey, especially in limited-overs cricket, but his wicket brought Trott to the crease and together with Cook, the pair laid the foundations for the successful chase. England Lions 281 for 5 (Trott 118, Tonge 3-55) beat West Indies A 279 for 6 (Edwards 147, Shahzad 2-25) By five wickets Wednesday, 30th June CRICKET Daynason Browne Suspended Senior Nevis cricketer and recent Leeward Islands selectee Daynayson Browne has been suspended from the first two matches of the upcoming Leeward Islands 20/20 tournament to be held in Antigua. Browne was reported to the disciplinary committee of the Nevis Cricket Association By Manager of the Nevis senior team, Malcolm Ramsey, for serious breaches of the established code of conduct. Extracts from a letter signed By Chairman of the disciplinary committee, Ron Daniel reads: “The Disciplinary Committee of the Nevis Cricket Association met on Monday June 28 instant to discuss complaints brought By the Manager of the Nevis Cricket Team, Mr. Malcolm Ramsey against Mr. Daynason Browne on grounds of indiscipline and insubordination. Having heard the complaint as well as the response from Mr. Browne, the Disciplinary Committee has decided as follows 1) Mr. Browne will be expected to give a written apology to the Manager Mr. Malcolm Ramsey for failing to complete tasks as assigned and failure to follow the proper communication channels when doing so. The letter must also include his apologies for facilitating the drinking of alcohol in the dressing room and for the use of indecent language although outlawed. 2) Mr. Browne will also be expected to give a public apology to the manager in a team meeting setting, accept responsibility for his actions and explain to his teammates what they should do in similar situations. 3) Mr. Browne will not be able to perform any leadership role for the duration of the T-20 Tournament. He will not be allowed to be captain or vice captain of the team for this tournament under any circumstances. 4) Mr. Brown will be suspended for the first two (2) games of the Leeward Islands T-20 Tournament. Mr. Brown is expected to use this time to reflect on his actions while at the same time showing himself to be an excellent team-member although not in the playing eleven. 5) Mr. Brown will be then put under a probationary period for the rest of the 2010 season where his behaviour will be monitored in the hope that he can again regain the confidence of management and his teammates as a role model and leader. If this can be done, the Disciplinary Committee is not opposed to lifting the temporary ban on his leadership roles. However, if he is brought back before The Disciplinary Committee for any serious offence and proven guilty, Mr. Brown will not be able to take any further part in the 2010 Cricket Season as a member of the Nevis Cricket Team. We verily believe that the afore-mentioned is adequate punishment for the offences brought By management. Allow us to affirm that the intention of the Disciplinary Committee is not to punish but to prepare our players for the realities of international cricket and to propel them to the levels of discipline necessary for sustained performance at the international level”. In commenting on the ruling, President of the Nevis cricket Association Ronald Powell indicated that all of the cricketers were previously spoken to in terms of what was expected of them as ambassadors of Nevis and each of them was given a copy of the established code of conduct. “We have to send a clear message to the cricketers that no matter how talented they may be, in representing the island, they have to set high standards”, he said.

VOLLEYBALL St. Kitts & Nevis Women’s Volleyball National Team Bring Home Gold! “Pure Guts and Determination” The St. Kitts & Nevis Volleyball National Team left the island to represent their country at the 2010 ECVA Senior Women’s Championship. The tournament was held from 24th – 28th June, 2010 in St. Lucia. The national team played a total of 5 matches throughout the tournament, losing one match and bringing home the Gold. In the preliminary round St. Kitts played St. Vincent on Thursday morning, beating them 3 – 0. That afternoon following the St. Vincent match, they went up against neighboring island and arch rivals Antigua. St. Kitts lost that match 3 – o. Coach, Steadroy “Star” Collins stated, “This match in particular, served as a wakeup call for us, we regrouped and decided we were not taking any team for granted because every team was there to win.” St. Kitts played French St. Martin on Friday night to secure a place in the semi-finals. They won the first two (2) sets and were leading in the third set when a key player became physically impaired. Although the team was concerned about their teammate and lost the third set, they rallied beat French St. Martin 3 -1 and advanced to the semi-finals. St. Kitts played St. Lucia in the semi-final. The first set was a nail biting one with St. Kitts winning 25-23! Playing at home and the pre-tournament favorite, St. Lucia rebounded to take sets #2 and #3 beating St. Kitts 25 – 15 and 25 – 10. It came down to who wanted it more. Coach Collins told his team, “We cannot outhit St. Lucia so in order for us to win we have to play defense”. The team responded By winning sets 4 and 5 25-15 and 15-11 to advance to the finals.” St. Kitts and Dominica were in different zones, St. Kitts in Group B and Dominica in Group A, but took similar paths to the championship game. They were both runners-up in their respective groups in the preliminary round but played well when it mattered, in the cross-over semi-finals where the top team from Group A plays the runner-up from Group B and vice-versa. So when Dominica beat Antigua on Saturday night and then St. Kitts dispatched St. Lucia the finals would feature two teams that were getting better as the tournament progressed. St. Kitts brutalized Dominica in the first set winning 25-13. Dominica responded well and won a hard-fought second set 29-27. St. Kitts took the third set 25-19 and let the fourth slip losing 18 – 25. The fifth set was a fitting climax for a championship match with both teams exhausted and playing on physical and emotional reserves. St. Kitts prevailed with the narrowest of margins 18 – 16 to bring home gold and team-mate Brenda Allen was also announced Tournament MVP. The victory was such emotional one, bringing the entire team to tears. It was a day where hard work, synergy, determination and guts all attributed to winning the championships. The St. Kitts and Nevis National Women’s Volleyball team will now advance to the Norceca Championships to be held in Mexico in 2011. The National Women’s Volleyball team would like to say a special thank you to Digicel, MacPennies, American Airlines/American Eagle, Rum Barrel, Gregory “Chef” Austin, Kachi Armony, St. Kitts Cooperative Credit Union, Kajola Kristada, Harowe Servo Controls and Mau Pau. Without the generous support of the corporate community and individuals the success we enjoyed in this tournament would not have been possible. FOOTBALL Blatter apologizes for disallowed goal Fifa president Sepp Blatter has apologized to the Football Association over Frank Lampard’s disallowed goal in England’s World Cup defeat By Germany. Blatter said the error had convinced him to reopen the debate on goal-line technology at a board meeting in July. Lampard was denied a goal in Sunday’s 4-1 second-round loss, even though his shot clearly crossed the line. Blatter also said sorry to Mexico after Carlos Tevez’s offside goal was allowed to stand in Argentina’s 3-1 victory. Uruguayan referee Jorge Larrionda, who missed Lampard’s goal, and Italian referee Roberto Rosetti, who allowed Tevez’s offside Argentina goal to stand, have not been retained for the remainder of the tournament. Lampard’s strike came during a spell of England dominance and would have levelled the score at 2-2. The high-profile error sparked a clamour for referees to be given more assistance, with international players’ union FifPro leading calls for goal-line technology to be introduced. Blatter said the issue will now form part of the agenda at next month’s meeting of the International FA Board (IFAB), the body that decides the laws of the game. “It is obvious that after the experiences so far at this World Cup it would be a nonsense not to reopen the file on goal-line technology,” stated Blatter. The Tevez goal – the first in Argentina’s win on Sunday – was replayed on the screens in the stadium, sparking angry clashes between officials and the Mexican players and coaches. “Personally I deplore it when you see evident referee mistakes but it’s not the end of a competition or the end of football, this can happen,” added Blatter. In related news: The International Cricket Council is expected to confirm on Thursday that the umpire decision review system (DRS) will
be used in next year’s World Cup. But DRS, used in some Tests, will not be trialled in one-day internationals before the ICC’s flagship tournament begins next February in south Asia. The ICC may pay for some broadcasting costs to ensure all 49 World Cup games get DRS technology as standard. The system allows for players to “appeal” against on-field decisions. The ICC will formally announce its plans at the end of its annual conference in Singapore. However, it has already signalled its intention to adopt DRS across all Tests and the World Cup following recommendations from two of its internal committees. The review system was introduced as a trial in June 2008. Teams are permitted two opportunities per innings to contest an on-field decision, losing a challenge for an unsuccessful review. One of the most contentious issues has been the reluctance of some home cricket boards to pay for the necessary infrastructure supplied By host broadcasters, while some series have not had access to certain technologies. In such instances, DRS has been shelved. But DRS has been further dogged By the apparent failure of the third umpire, who reviews the video evidence, to come up with the same verdict as those suggested By television pundits. Interviewed ahead of the Singapore conference, ICC general manager David Richardson acknowledged that the cost issue of DRS had to be addressed. “Where the advertising generated By the broadcaster is quite low, to limit his costs of production the broadcaster may ask the member country to provide full costs of ball-tracking [as supplied By Hawk-Eye] which is about $60,000 (£40,000),” Richardson told BBC Sport.
