Bonner credits bowlers for St Catherine derby success

first_imgOut-of-favour West Indies batsman Nkrumah Bonner has pinpointed pressured bowling as the reason behind St Catherine CA’s narrow nine-wicket win over St Catherine CC in their recent Jamaica Cricket Association 50-Overs Championship clash. The Zone B contest, which gives the winning team bragging rights, saw St Catherine CA coming out on top courtesy of a brilliant all-round performance from the 26-year-old Bonner, who also bowls part-time leg spin. Bonner, who recently signed to the Leeward Islands Hurricanes for the upcoming four-day WICB Professional League, slammed a top score of 66 in St Catherine CA’s competitive total of 224 off 47.3 overs. This was in addition to supplemental scores of 40 and 31 not out, respectively, from national trials invitee, wicketkeeper Kemar Marshall and veteran Erron Downer. The experienced Tamar Lam-bert, with five for 22, led the way for St Catherine CC’s bowlers. Bonner then returned in late afternoon to cop two for 31, as St Catherine CC, who were penalised 18 runs when they were in the field for slow over rate, were dismissed for 233 with two balls to spare. St Catherine CC, the defending champions, based on the penalty runs conceded, needed to score 242 for victory. Left-arm spinner Coi Thompson, another Jamaica four-day trials invitee, led the way for St Catherine CA’s bowling with three for 17. Off-spin all-rounder Pete Salmon, 62, and national batsman Shacaya Thomas, 52, contributed most runs for the losers. “It was a good game by us, and for the spectators,” said Bonner, captain of St Catherine CA. “We fell short, I believe, by about 40 runs, but our bowlers, really put the pressure on them,” he declared. Meanwhile, Garwaine Johnson, coach of St Catherine CC, while applauding Bonner, said mistakes led to the undoing of his team. “It’s a hard one to take, but credit to Bonner, he played well, and they were able to pull it off,” Johnson said. “We played hard, but made some mistakes, which cost us. But we are St Catherine CC, and have a good team, and will bounce back and qualify for the quarter-finals.” The victory pushed St Catherine CA to three wins from as many outings, while the loss was St Catherine CC’s first in three games. The winners and runners-up from each of the tournament’s four zones will progress to the quarter-finals. penalisedlast_img read more

Bromfield targets overseas success

first_imgHaving secured this year’s 14th straight Jakes Off-Road Triathlon title, Jassette Bromfield now has his sights set on excelling in his next overseas challenge, the Sea to Sea Half Marathon slated for Tobago on May 20. The St Elizabeth native is a farmer from Treasure Beach and has been making the most of his knowledge of course in his hometown event. Ahead of his departure for Tobago yesterday where he is also expected to feature in the Rainbow Cup triathlon in June, Bromfield, who finished fifth overall last year, with a less capable road bike, said he is hopeful for improvements this time around. “I have much more races under my belt this year and have been training much harder, and I have a better road bike than last year so I want to perform better and improve,” outlined Bromfield. “I believe I am much more than a local Jakes Triathlon performer, I had a top five finish in Tobago last year, which I am working hard to improve this year,” he continued. Locally, he holds the national triathlon title from December last year in Port Royal. At Jakes, Bromfield has three years success as a relay team member and 14 consecutive individual titles. “Within the next two years I hope to make a breakthrough on the international scene, mainly in the half iron man which is a longer distance,” he told The Gleaner. “I would love to have it (triathlon) as a career, but currently, it’s struggling, and hard to pursue. I try my best and keep on pushing, hoping with some positive results I could attract some sponsorship,” he added. The 33-year-old Bromfield, who won his first Jakes Triathlon as a teen in 1999, says he wants to push for an international break, but is financially challenged to do so. Meanwhile, the annual Jakes Off-Road Triathlon is one of the Caribbean’s first and largest annual events. It was recently held in Treasure Beach, St Elizabeth and sponsored by Wisynco, Tru-Juice and Malta. The event attracts participants from the Caribbean and other parts of the world.last_img read more

Sinkor Assembly of God Inducts First Female Pastor

first_imgReverend Mother Nancy Godu Chowolo becomes the first female pastor of the Sinkor Assembly of God Church. — Envisages a modernized and spiritually sound churchReverend Mother Nancy Godu Chowolo will be the first female pastor of the Sinkor Assembly of God Church since the church was established in March 1967.At the induction ceremony on June 30, 2019, held at the church edifice, Rev. Chowolo called on all Sinkor Assembly of God Church leaders and members to reconcile as they look forward to transforming the church to a more modern and spiritual edifice, because a house divided cannot stand.“Let us put away our differences and embrace unity and tolerance as the hallmark among ourselves,” she said.Rev. Chowolo, who succeeds Reverend Dr. Marue W. Sirleaf, served the church as an interim pastor from July 2018 to June 2019. Based on the church’s request to the National District for a sitting pastor, Rev. Chowolo was endorsed and inducted as the first female Head Pastor. Rev. Chowolo and the church extended their thanks to the Presbyter of Section Four, the Monrovia District and the leadership of the Assemblies of God in Liberia, Incorporated, for honoring their request for a pastor.The new pastor further extended thanks to the ministers, deacons, departmental leaders and all members, the sectional leadership, the Monrovia District leadership, and the National leadership for their preferment.She outlined the key pillars of her leadership as reconciliation, mission and evangelism, building spiritual maturity, and deeper engagement of members, and promised to address the challenges ahead, by the grace of God.Rev. Chowolo committed to construct a new church edifice but said this could only be attained if everyone was willing to sacrifice and give their all. She referenced Nehemiah 2:20, which says: “The God of Heaven will prosper us, therefore; His servants will arise and build.”To increase the spiritual life of believers within the Sinkor Assembly the new Head Pastor said every member would be encouraged to participate in departmental activities. “We will organize activities that will lead to Christian maturity,” she stated.“There will be training sessions for leaders and members; for this is the way Christ established the church. He trained workers and members of God’s kingdom. This is to build solid citizens for Heaven and the Church,” she told the congregation.Rev. Chowolo said all members would be trained and assigned to go out with the Good News of Jesus Christ, as a means of implementing the church’s mission and evangelism program.The General Superintendent, Reverend Edwin A. Gbelly, who exhorted on the theme, “Put in Order Stewards of Integrity,” cautioned the leadership and its members to set sound doctrine, good conduct and behavior.“The church has needs and it will therefore take self-controlled and self-disciplined stewards to fulfill such needs,” he said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Guyoil increases kero, diesel prices

first_imgAs the price for gasoline has been incrementally increasing over the past few days, the Guyana Oil Company Limited (Guyoil), which is Guyana’s leading petroleum company, has also increased the prices for both kerosene and diesel fuel.A vehicle being refuelled by a Guyoil pump attendantThese prices were adjusted based on the world stock market and will affect not only the other sectors but consumers nationwide.Kerosene, which was priced at $130, is now $137 per litre; while diesel, which was $188, has now raised to $204 per litre. Gasoline, which has been on the increase in the past months, is now priced at $204 per litre. However, at other privately owned service stations, the prices are said to be higher.In September 2017, world market prices for fuel were already increased due to the hurricane conditions in the southern hemisphere, which resulted in Guyoil adjusting the prices in gasoline, diesel and kerosene to a higher cost. Gasoline, a common commodity, was increased by $14 per litre.last_img read more
