first_img England Golf has appointed Jeremy Bennett as the new lead coach for the national boys’ squad. He will take up his position in September. Bennett is currently the Wales ladies’ coach and has worked with Major winners Sir Nick Faldo, Seve Ballesteros and Bernhard Langer, as well with Rory McIlroy and Oliver Fisher while they were part of Team Faldo and the Faldo Series. He is an Advanced Fellow of the PGA and is based at Windlesham Golf Club in Surrey. In two other appointments Martyn Thompson of Dorset will become the coach for the girls’ South West regional U16 squad and Sam Johnston of Worcestershire will take up the same position with the West Midlands U16 girls’ squad. Nigel Edwards, England Golf’s Performance Director, commented: “England Golf is committed to providing excellent coaching to help our players develop the skills they need to perform at the highest level. We are delighted to welcome these coaches to our team and look forward to working with them to achieve even greater successes for our players.” Jeremy Bennett has been the Wales ladies’ coach since 2008 and has steered them to three Home Internationals wins – after the team had won the title only one other time in 100 years.   He commented: “I have enjoyed every minute with Wales, bringing tears of joy and creating history which is my main goal. Now I am looking forward to the new challenge with the England U18s and I relish the chance to create more history with them.” Bennett was an England international in his amateur days and went on to play on the European Tour for 11 years and was Rookie of the Year in 1981. Since specialising in coaching he has worked with the Surrey county men’s team, steering them to two national championship wins, and spent four years with the elite players in Team Faldo. Three players he worked with – Oliver Fisher, Rory McIlroy and James Heath – all reached the top of the world amateur rankings. Golf Union of Wales Director of Performance Ben Waterhouse commented: “We would like to thank Jeremy for his services to Welsh golf and wish him well with England Golf. He has achieved great success here and helped to bring out the talent in a lot of young players.” Martyn Thompson, who becomes the coach to the South West regional U16 girls’ squad, is the head PGA professional at Parkstone Golf Club in Dorset.

Red Bank Y Shows Off Newly Renovated Facility at Open…

first_imgThe recent makeover at the Y included the addition of child-size workout equipment to keep the younger set in shape.By John BurtonRED BANK — The public was invited to see the results of the Community YMCA’s long planned, multi-million dollar makeover during an open house at their newly renovated facility at 166 Maple Ave.“We knocked down a lot of walls and created open, welcoming space,” the Y’s Vice President of Communications and Collaborations Andrea Plaza said last Saturday.The approximately 65,000 square-foot and 41-year-old facility has been redone to make it more inviting for its diverse population of members in a construction project that took about 9 months. Plaza said space has been created or expanded expressly for children’s physical activity, such as the new youth and teen center, which contains equipment designed for the younger members. Also for the younger crowd is the redone child watch room, which is more than double its previous size, now at 1,200 square feet, and offers free babysitting, Plaza explained.The facility’s second floor now has the Health Seekers Room, which provides a quieter space, “for an individual who is committed to making a change to healthier lifestyle,” Plaza said, “and who needs help with making those changes.”On the first floor, additional room has been added to accommodate parents waiting for their kids, and for those who have completed their workouts and just want a moment’s relaxation and a place to interact. To help with the latter, the Y has opened a refreshment bar near the main entrance.As part of the new plan, the Y has modified its memberships levels from two to one, with all members now eligible to use all of the facility’s programs and equipment, Plaza said.The annual family membership fee is $92 per month.Longtime member Tom Wilkens seemed pleased by the changes. Wilkens, Middletown, is a former Olympic swim team member. “I started to swim here,” he recalled on Saturday.“For me, growing up, this was like a second home.” Now, he brings his kids to the Y, and still gets a little time in the pool. “It’s always my default exercise,” he said.The Y’s Red Bank facility has about 8,000 members. The total number of members for all Monmouth County facilities is 20,000, Plaza said.[nggallery id=24]last_img read more

Groves to face former champion Johnson

first_imgGeorge Groves will fight former world champion Glen Johnson at the ExCeL London on 15 December.The veteran Jamaican, 43, has been named as the surprise opponent for Groves’ defence of his Commonwealth super-middleweight title on the Frank Warren-promoted bill, which will be headlined by Scotland’s world lightweight champion Ricky Burns.Johnson won the IBF light-heavyweight title in 2004 and later that year pulled off a sensational victory by knocking out Roy Jones Jnr.His long list of opponents also includes Nottingham’s world champion Carl Froch, who won a close points decision when the pair met last year.Groves, unbeaten in his 15-fight professional career, expects the wily Johnson to provide his trickiest test so far.“It will be my toughest challenge – no-one has an easy fight against Glen Johnson,” said the 24-year-old.“I’m buzzing for the fight and am preparing for 12 hard rounds because he will give anyone a hard night’s work. I’ll be ready.”Groves, from Hammersmith, recently relinquished the British title after a planned September defence against mandatory challenger Kenny Anderson failed to materialise.An expected rematch with Anderson – who floored him before he battled back to win when they met in 2010 – was scrapped because of a cut Groves sustained in a bruising encounter with Francisco Sierra in California in July.Earlier this year Groves was forced to withdraw from a world title shot against German-based Russian Robert Stieglitz – then the WBO champion – because of injury.“It’s been a difficult year but I had a good win in America and now I’m going to have another good win in December,” he said.“It’ll be a tough challenge but I’m ready for it. I’ve felt ready for quite a while. I’m heading in the right direction for a world title.”See also:Bloodied Groves prevails in San Jose scrapGroves eyes fight at Stamford BridgeGroves’ Wembley fight is off because of cutGroves lines up December title defenceWatch the press conference to announce Groves’ clash with JohnsonGroves believes he can stop JohnsonFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

CAC Secures $30.9 Million for Aggrieved Consumers

first_imgThe Consumer Affairs Commission (CAC) is reporting that it secured $30.9 million on behalf of aggrieved consumers in 2018.Director of Communications, CAC, Latoya Halstead, told JIS News that the amount represented a 43.8 per cent increase, compared to the $21 million recovered in 2017 by the agency.Ms. Halstead said the increase reflected the efforts of the agency to reach amicable resolutions between vendors and consumers.“Our complaints officers are very well trained as it relates to negotiation, so we try to arrive at a satisfactory position. However, it’s not necessarily on the side of the vendor or consumers, but we try to arrive at an agreed position.Consumers must also note that redress does not only comprise monetary compensation but it is also repairs and replacement,” she added.According to Ms. Halstead, the agency will continue to have outreach activities to raise awareness about consumer rights.“We believe that an empowered consumer is a strong consumer, so our educational activities speak to redress and your rights and responsibilities as a consumer,” she noted.The CAC handled approximately 1,711 cases on behalf of consumers in 2018, which is a nine per cent increase compared to the 1,600 cases that were addressed in 2017.last_img read more
