Samuels headlines Hurricanes Super50 squad

first_imgBASSETERRE, St Kitts (CMC): Test star Marlon Samuels headlines a 14-man Leeward Islands Hurricanes squad announced yesterday for this month’s Regional Super50 in Antigua and Barbados. The veteran right-hander, who has not turned out in the tournament in three seasons, will be joined by the Trinidad and Tobago pair of Kevon Cooper and Akeal Hosein for the January 24 to February 18 campaign. Test fast bowler Alzarri Joseph has also been named in the unit, which will be led by out-of-favour Test left-hander Kieran Powell, with West Indies A all-rounder Rahkeem Cornwall as his deputy. The 35-year-old Samuels, meanwhile, will be a huge boost or the Hurricanes, who have been installed in a tough Zone A alongside defending champions Trinidad and Tobago Red Force, Windward Islands Volcanoes, West Indies Under-19s and English county side, Kent Spitfires. Jamaican Samuels, a veteran of 71 Tests and 187 One-Day Internationals, is a regular member of the current Windies side in all three formats. Cooper, a steady seamer and effective lower order batsman, is also expected to add depth to the Hurricanes while Hosein’s left-arm spin and left-handed batting will be an asset. Batsman Jermaine Otto is the only debutant included in the squad. Hurricanes will hold their first training session as a unit on Monday at the Vivian Richards Cricket Stadium. SQUAD: Kieran Powell (captain), Rahkeem Cornwall, Marlon Samuels, Montcin Hodge, Chesney Hughes, Nkrumah Bonner, Jahmar Hamilton, Jermaine Otto, Orlando Peters, Alzarri Joseph, Akeal Hosein, Kevon Cooper.last_img read more

BROLLY TO GET SOME TIPS FROM McLAUGHLIN AT TERMON DINNER DANCE!

first_imgControversial RTE TV GAA pundit Joe Brolly is the special guest for this Saturday night’s Termon GAA dinner dance.Joe Brolly to be guest of Termon GAA club this weekend.The function is at the Lagoon Lounge and those attending are advised that it will start at 6.30pm.An All-Ireland winner with his native Derry in 1993 Brolly was one of the country’s top GAA players for a decade and broke Donegal hearts with a late goal in the 1998 Ulster Final Clones that killed off Declan Bonner’s of managing his county to provincial glory. The Belfast based barrister is a regular visitor to the county where he has a house in the Glenswilly area.It’s been a historic year for the Termon with the club winning it’s first ever All-Ireland Club title at the end of November. Indeed the Burn Road outfit is the only club from Donegal to ever lift a national club title. So the defeat of Cork team Mourneabbey in the decider will definitely go down in history as will the performance of the brilliant Geraldine McLaughlin who scored 3-8 in the decider and was involved in the other four scores that made up Termon’s total of 3-12 in Tuam.Also in attendance on Saturday night will be the President of the Ladies Gaelic Football Association Pat Quill, Minister for the Gaeltacht DeputyJoe McHugh TD and of course the Dolores Tyrell All-Ireland Ladies Club Championship Cup.Due to the nature of this stellar line-up, the event has had to be brought forward and will now commence at 6:30 in The Lagoon on this Saturday 3rd January. Tickets are priced at €25 for adults and €20 for students. Tickets can be purchased from any committee member.
