Allardyce hails ‘massive victory’ over Newcastle

first_img Aaron Cresswell celebrates his first Hammers goal 1 West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has hailed Saturday’s 1-0 home win over Newcastle as a “massive result” which he believes could prove a vital win come the end of the season.Aaron Cresswell scored the game’s only goal as he latched onto Cheikhou Kouyate’s scuffed shot to finish with aplomb past Rob Elliot.The win lifts the Hammers to fifth ahead of the busy Christmas schedule and Allardyce was left delighted with three points.“It’s a massive victory for us,” said the boss.“Newcastle have had the best run in the Premier League in recent weeks, even better than Chelsea which is saying something.“I always thought it was going to be a tight match. I told the players it was about not conceding the first goal because if we did that it would have been difficult for us to get back into the game.“To go back into fifth with 21 points gives us a huge push ahead of a massive week with three games in seven or eight days,” he added.Allardyce heaped praise on his unlikely goal scorer Aaron Cresswell who popped up from left-back to slot home for the hosts.“There is huge praise for Aaron for the quality of his finish. It was fantastic,” Allardyce beamed.“He is a full-back and showed more attacking players how to put the ball in the back of the net today.”Talking ahead of what is usually a horror couple of months for the Irons, Allardyce confirmed the Hammers are ahead of their predicted point’s schedule.“At the moment we are achieving above expectations but it’s vital, going into December, that we sustain things. Historically December and January have been difficult months for us in recent years.”last_img read more

POLICE BELIEVE THEY HAVE SMASHED PROSTITUTION RING IN DONEGAL AND DERRY

first_imgPolice have uncovered a suspected Romanian crime gang operating a prostitution racket in Donegal and Derry.Thousands of pounds in cash was sent to three European countries as part of the alleged vice ring based, it was claimed.Detectives from the PSNI’s organised crime branch detained one suspect in a raid carried out 24 hours after a newspaper published its probe into the sex trade. Nocolae Razvan Gros (25), a Romanian man from Kular Court, William Street, Derry, is charged with controlling prostitution for gain and improperly obtaining a Romanian driving licence and identity card.The PSNI believe Gros was controlling prostitution in Donegal.With the accused linked to two alternative names, a judge was told police are still not sure of his real identity. He was arrested during searches of his flat on January 16 which led to the discovery of “paraphernalia associated with prostitution”.Officers found substantial quantities of condoms, baby oil and towelling lying on the bed, said Crown counsel Conor Maguire.A number of mobile phones and SIM cards with female names written on them were seized. Some were for use in the UK, others in the Irish Republic, the court heard.Gros was present with a Romanian woman who he said was his girlfriend.One of the phones contained images of her identical to those on an escort website advertising sexual services, it was claimed.Although Gros denied any knowledge of the SIM cards, Mr Maguire said forensic examinations found his DNA on them.A day before the search, the Sunday Life newspaper published details of an undercover reporter being offered sex by a woman at the apartment block, the court heard.Her description was said to match that of Gros’ alleged girlfriend.The accused claimed he had rented the flat with savings brought from his native country.Between them, Gros and the woman have sent £7,747 in cash to Romania, France and Germany, the court was told.The judge, Lord Justice Higgins, adjourned the bail application to allow further checks on the documents and a possible bail address.POLICE BELIEVE THEY HAVE SMASHED PROSTITUTION RING IN DONEGAL AND DERRY was last modified: May 29th, 2012 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:Derrydonegalprostitutionlast_img read more

MORE THAN 50 ATTEND ‘SHOW RACISM THE RED CARD’ CAMP

first_imgAlmost 50 young people from diverse backgrounds are participating in an intercultural summer camp in Donegal this week.Student show racism the red cardThe camp, organised annually by the anti-racism charity Show Racism the Red Card, aims to promote integration amongst 11 to 16-year-olds.Based at the West Donegal Adventure Centre in Glencolmcille, it began last Sunday (18th August) and will run until this coming Saturday, 24th August. There is a strong cross-border and inter-faith dimension to the camp this year, with 24 participants hailing from the Newtownabbey, Rathcoole, Ballyduff and Glengormley areas of Belfast.Other participants include young people of African and Eastern European origin, as well as from a range of different counties, including Carlow, Dublin, Galway, Kildare, Kilkenny, Mayo, Meath, Roscommon and Sligo.Fifteen volunteers from diverse cultural backgrounds – including Spanish, Russian, Somali, English and Irish volunteers – are assisting Show Racism the Red Card staff in running the camp.Those attending are exposed to various languages, with lessons in Slovenian, Russian, Spanish and Irish. There are daily presentations on the home countries and cultures of participants and volunteers, with traditional dances, songs and stories from India, Russia and Slovenia included in the programme for the week.There is a heavy emphasis on sports and outdoors activities, and participants are also invited to perform plays and concerts for the local community.Commenting today Garrett Mullan, Coordinator of Show Racism the Red Card, said: “Unfortunately, racism exists in Ireland and, quite often, it is perpetuated because young people hear their parents expressing racist views. The purpose of our summer camps – and, indeed, all our work – is to equip young people with the skills to think independently, to understand what causes racism and how to challenge it, and to promote integration and interculturalism.“At the camp, cultural barriers are broken down: young people from very diverse religious, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds are encouraged and facilitated to work, learn and play alongside each other.”Further information on the Show Racism the Red Card summer camp is available at: www.theredcard.ie/camp.php.
