English soccer field invasions see players punched, pushed

first_imgJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for Ginebra MOST READ Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title “I just tried to get on with my job,” Grealish said. “To score the winner was unbelievable, after what happened in the first half I think it was set up for it.”The competition organizer said it “condemns the mindless actions” of the man who attacked Grealish.“It’s a situation no player should ever be faced with,” the English Football League said in a statement. “In all circumstances the playing surface is for players, not supporters. Those playing in the game must be able to do so safe in the knowledge they will not be subjected to this type of behavior.“We will work with all the relevant parties to address the issue of player and match officials safety on the pitch and ensure the appropriate action is taken.”Birmingham said it would assist the authorities in their investigations and review stadium safety procedures. Precautionary measures were already taken in an attempt to reduce the risk of violence.“We kick off on Sunday at (noon) for a reason, to keep the people out of the pubs,” Villa manager Dean Smith said. “Security’s got to be ready for people coming on to the pitch but then some lunatic goes on trying to make a name for himself.”The attack followed a number of recent high-profile incidents of crowd trouble north of the border in Scottish football.In a Scottish Premiership game on Friday night, Rangers captain James Tavernier found himself face to face with a Hibernian fan who had jumped out of the home support stand. The previous weekend a glass bottle was thrown from the same section of the stadium as Celtic winger Scott Sinclair prepared to take a corner kick during a game at Hibernian. Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Hours later in the rain of north London, after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored Arsenal’s second goal from the penalty spot in a 2-0 Premier League victory over Manchester United, a supporter darted onto the field. As he raced toward the celebrating Arsenal players, he pushed United defender Chris Smalling.“It’s obviously a concern with the one earlier today,” United’s Ashley Young told beIN Sports.The Metropolitan Police said a man was in custody on Sunday night after being arrested on “suspicion of common assault and pitch invasion.” Arsenal said the man would be banned from its games — home and away.“We utterly condemn the behavior of the individual who ran onto the pitch and approached Chris Smalling,” Arsenal said in a statement. “We would like to apologize to Chris and Manchester United, and are pleased that the individual was apprehended and arrested. We will be working closely with the Metropolitan Police in their investigation.”In Birmingham, Grealish responded to the violence by scoring a second-half goal that secured a 1-0 victory for Villa. But he was booked for jumping into the stands to celebrate with visiting Villa fans.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES US Olympic cyclist Kelly Catlin found dead in her home at age 23 Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines?

Nuñez criticizes proposals

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinals“Spillover monies for public transit is a no-go,” Nuñez said. “We just can’t go there.” Spillover funds are gas sales tax receipts that exceed expected tax revenues, according to the state Department of Finance. Because of high gas prices, the state expects to receive $4 billion in such funds over the next 10 years. Normally, spillover funds are dedicated to public transit. Instead, Schwarzenegger has proposed dedicating the money to paying down transportation bond debt, including past bonds and those that will be submitted to voters in November. Nuñez and other Democrats have complained about that proposal, saying the money should go toward its original purpose of public transportation. But a Department of Finance spokesman noted that by paying transportation bond debt, the spillover funds are indirectly helping fund public transportation. Finance spokesman H.D. Palmer said there could be $4 billion or more spent on public transit in the November bond. “We don’t see this as an either/or type of situation,” Palmer said. “We believe we can provide resources for public transit as put forward in the bond that the governor supports. At the same time we can create a fund that provides a clear link between the prices we’re paying at the pump and the projects to relieve congestion.” Both Hill and Nuñez also object to the governor’s plan to pay back early $1 billion in debt created by his 2004 economic recovery bond. In Hill’s analysis of the governor’s budget, she recommends that the Legislature not adopt that proposal, and instead pay down the reserve, or prepay other debt that is coming due in 2007-08 or 2008-09. Voters authorized the economic recovery bond in 2004 for $15 billion, though only $11.3 billion in debt has been issued. The bond was originally scheduled to be paid back by 2023, but that was later revised to 2010. Now Schwarzenegger wants to pay it back in 2009 by prepaying $1 billion one year early. Villaraigosa, meeting Monday with a dozen legislators in Sacramento, said he also has concerns about the governor’s May budget revision. He declined to elaborate because the document is still being reviewed by city staffers, but he mentioned transportation funding as one area of concern. Villaraigosa came to Sacramento to thank legislators for their recent action placing four infrastructure bonds on the November ballot and to round up support for his proposal to reorganize the Los Angeles Unified School District, as well as to launch an audit of the district. Today, he will be in Washington, D.C., with dozens of Los Angeles-area business leaders to discuss trade, transportation and education. harrison.sheppard@dailynews.com (916) 446-6723160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! SACRAMENTO – Assembly Speaker Fabian Nuñez criticized some elements of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s revised budget proposal Monday, saying a plan to cut public-transit funding is a “no-go” and more money should be stashed in reserves for financial emergencies. The statements came as the state’s nonpartisan legislative analyst also recommended more fiscal prudence in the budget, including a greater reserve and cautioned on education spending. Also, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa visited Sacramento on Monday to meet with a dozen legislators about the budget and other issues. While Schwarzenegger’s revised 2006-07 budget, released Friday, has generally received more positive reviews than his previous budgets – mainly because the state’s revenue picture has greatly improved – both Nuñez, D-Los Angeles, and Legislative Analyst Elizabeth Hill had concerns with how he proposed to use some of the surplus funds, including potentially cutting $4 billion in “spillover” gas tax funds for public transportation. last_img read more

BRAVE GLENSWILLY’S FAIRYTALE COMES TO AN END IN ULSTER CHAMPIONSHIP

first_imgLady luck abandoned Donegal champions Glenswilly as they were knocked out of the Ulster Club Championship – beaten by a single point by Monaghan champions Latton.The men from the Glen were hoping for a repeat of their earlier round game when they beat Cavan Gaels with a late penalty.But there was no such repeat as Latton came out on top 0-10 to 0-9 at MacCumhaill Park. Despite perfect conditions, a relatively small crowd turned up to see this Ulster Championship clash.On the day several of Glenswilly’s bigger names including Michael Murphy and Ciaran Bonner simply didn’t perform to their ability on the day.The sides went in level at four points a piece at half time.But the Monaghan men, inspired by their midfield master Lennon, who turned the screw from the restart. Latton seemed to score at ease but the same points cost Glenswilly a much greater deal of work and in the end that’s showed.Ironically Glenswilly could have stolen it late on but a close range rush on goal resulted in a point when a goal was in the offing.Overall however the Donegal champions could probably have very little to complain about and perhaps the better team on the day emerged victorious.BRAVE GLENSWILLY’S FAIRYTALE COMES TO AN END IN ULSTER CHAMPIONSHIP was last modified: November 13th, 2011 by StephenShare 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:glenswillyLATTONUlster Championshiplast_img read more

BOY SCARRED AFTER BEING HIT WITH TOY BRICK AWARDED €20,000 IN DAMAGES

first_imgA BOY hit with a toy brick at a Co Donegal community centre and left scarred as a result has been awarded €20,000 in compensation.The child was struck with the toy at Malin Head Community Centre in November 2012, Letterkenny Circuit Court was told.Barrister Peter Nolan told the court that the six-year-old boy was injured at a time when the centre was unsupervised by an adult. He had suffered “a very serious head injury” which had now left “a permanent 2cm scar” on the boy’s forehead.A report by a consultant plastic surgeon said that the boy would have a “mild disfigurement” for life as a result of the incident.The barrister told Judge Keenan Johnson that the community centre’s insurers had offered €15,000 in compensation, but having examined the boy’s facial scar, the judge said this was not enough.The insurance company later agreed to raise its offer to €20,000 – as suggested by the judge – and the settlement was agreed.The money will be kept in a courts account until the boy reaches the age of 18.BOY SCARRED AFTER BEING HIT WITH TOY BRICK AWARDED €20,000 IN DAMAGES was last modified: January 29th, 2014 by John2Share 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:000COMMUNITY CENTREcompensationMalin Head€20last_img read more
