Paul Young happy for first Red Stripe Premier League win at Waterhouse since return


first_imgCoach of Waterhouse FC Paul Young is very elated with his first win in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) since he took charge late last year.Waterhouse won their first game in the last 11 matches following a 2-0 triumph against Humble Lion away at Effortville Community Centre in May Pen on Sunday.The win pushed Waterhouse out of the relegation zone for the first in a long time as they eased to 20 points, just one ahead of Tivoli Gardens and Rivoli United.”I’m very elated for the win as the team deserved the points. But we have a lot of work to do in the final stage of the preliminary round,” Young told The Gleaner.”We’ve beaten a top-four team, and that is good. It is a platform for us to move forward. The aim is to get as much points as possible in the remaining 11 games,” the former Reggae Boyz striker added.Although Waterhouse are not yet clear of relegation, Young says there is the possibility that they can make the last four and challenge for the title.”Well, if after six matches in the next round and we can challenge for the top four, we will give it a shot,” the former Wolmer’s Boys’ Manning Cup star reasoned.Waterhouse added some experienced players, as well as schoolboys, to the squad, and Young is impressed with the group.”We added veteran Kevin Lamey, Theo Brown, Weston Forrest, plus Manning, and daCosta Cup players such as Paul Young Jr, Kimarley Campbell, Dominic James, Dale Reid, Nicholas Nelson, and Akeem Chambers; and they are working hard for the team.”We have a good balance of youth and experience, so it is a work in progress. We need to continue winning games,” Young noted.Waterhouse will next tackle Montego Bay United in the RSPL on Sunday at Drewsland.last_img read more

JUDGE ORDERS ARREST OF WOMAN FOR NOT PAYING CREDIT UNION LOAN – AFTER 13 WARNINGS


first_imgA Judge has issued a bench warrant for the arrest of a businesswoman after giving her 13 warnings to pay back a credit union loan.Judy Hannon was due to appear at Letterkenny District Court today to answer a summons for failing to comply with an installment order from 2010.Ms Hannon, 48, had been ordered to pay back €30 per week on a loan of €5,241 from Letterkenny Credit Union. However Ms Hannon, of Marcella House, Gortlee, Letterkenny, has paid back just €1,640 in those four years – the last payment being in February of this year.Solicitor for Letterkenny Credit Union, Mr Patsy Gallagher, said his client only brought members to court as a last resort.He said “It is not the policy of the credit union to seek committal orders but their hands are tied for over two years now.“There is a deliberate attempt not to engage and on the 11th hour to make a sporadic payment. The last payment was in February.“This simply cannot go on. Letterkenny Credit union has spent a lot of time and money intrying to get this woman back on track,” he said.Mr Gallagher also referred to the fact that Ms Hannon was a founding director of the Moolicious Food Company which had received significant grant aid.Defense solicitor Frank Dorrian said his client had genuinely mixed up her dates and was due to be in court.He said “The prospect of sending this lady to prison might not be a good fit considering her circumstances.”Judge Paul Kelly said he could not make a committal order against Ms Hannon unless she was present in court.Instead he issued a bench warrant for her arrest but warned that he will be disposed to a committal order in the case.Speaking after the case Mr Gordon Randles, General Manager of Letterkenny Credit Union, said that unfortunately this is an extreme case where all attempts to have on going communication with the member were exhausted.“The Credit Unions objective is at all times to work with members with respect to their financial position, but in this case the member has repeatedly failed to adhere to court orders and also to provide financial information requested by the court.“Letterkenny Credit Union only engage in the legal process for debt recovery as a last resort.”JUDGE ORDERS ARREST OF WOMAN FOR NOT PAYING CREDIT UNION LOAN – AFTER 13 WARNINGS was last modified: October 2nd, 2014 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:arrestcredit unionjudy hannonletterkennynon paymentlast_img read more
