Patrick hoping to make ‘killer’ moves in transfer window

Posted on by

first_imgCoach of promoted Maverley-Hughenden Anthony Patrick is hoping to add some ‘killer’ players to the team for the new year. Patrick was hired to replace Lijyasu Simms three weeks ago. At that point, Maverley-Hughenden were flirting with relegation in tenth position on 13 points from 14 games. Three games later, they have improved to seventh position on 20 points from 17 games. Since Patrick, who saved Waterhouse from relegation last term, crossed the road to neighbouring Maverley, the team has won twice and drawn once. “We are looking to add some young players to the squad during the upcoming January transfer window,” Patrick told The Gleaner following his team’s 1-1 draw against Harbour View on Wednesday in the final round for this year. “We want to have some ‘killer’ players coming from the bench. The plan is to add young quality players in all areas. We have quality players, but it is important to have a strong bench,” he informed. Patrick said that on arrival at Maverley, he told the players that the plan was to end the second round with at least 17 more points. “I told the players that we want to aim for at least 17 points from eight games, and we have achieved seven in three games. So, with five more games remaining in the second round, we are on target,” Patrick, who is also coach of St Catherine High in the Manning Cup schoolboy competition, added. When quizzed as to the difference in the team, he responded: “It is about self-belief. The players believe in me and I believe in them. I will continue to instill confidence in the players. The work ethic of the team is stepping up. However, we don’t want to push ourselves too much at this point.” Maverley-Hughenden will next face second-place-Tivoli Gardens (32 points) on January 4. “We will have more time to prepare for the next game against Tivoli and be ready for them,” Patrick concluded.

FIANNA FAIL TO HOLD MEETINGS ON SEPTIC TANK LEGISLATION ACROSS DONEGAL

Posted on by

first_imgFianna Fáil is holding a series of information meetings across Donegal to provide up-to-date information on the new septic tank legislation, the registration process and the grant aid available.The local Fianna Fáil organisation says the aim is to assist householders who have been left in the dark due to a lack of information from the Government.The party says the Environment Minister Phil Hogan has imposed these new laws without addressing the concerns of septic tank owners in Donegal and across the country. Speaking ahead of the week’s meetings, Fianna Fáil Senator Brian Ó Domhnaill said he has spoken to many septic tank owners locally over the past number of months who are confused about what this legislation means for them.“It is clear that the Government has rammed through this legislation without informing the public of its implications or the new standards that must be met. The Government’s approach to this has been completely unfair from the beginning, particularly on rural dwellers.“We have organised these meetings to provide a forum to answer people’s questions and ensure that they get the maximum grant available to them. All of the meetings will take place before the 1st February deadline for septic tank registration. Minister Hogan has set this strict condition for eligibility for grant aid of up to €4,000.“While it is welcome that the Government caved into pressure from Fianna Fáil and interest groups on making grant aid available, it is disappointing that the Minister insisted on capping this at €4,000 considering that some septic tank upgrades may involve much higher costs. I have raised this matter with the Minister directly and have appealed to him to extend the registration deadline to end of April so that the new inspection standards can be published and scrutinised by all.” Senator Ó Domhnaill said anyone who wishes to attend the meetings is very welcome to do so.A detailed presentation will be provided at each meeting by Cllr Paul Canning, who is an experienced Architect and Qualified Site Assessor. FIANNA FAIL TO HOLD MEETINGS ON SEPTIC TANK LEGISLATION ACROSS DONEGAL was last modified: January 14th, 2013 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:donegallegislationseptic tankslast_img read more
