Edwards (45) will also captain the GB&I team as they take on the Continent of Europe in the St Andrews Trophy match at Barseback in Sweden on 29 and 30 August this year. Edwards (image copyright Tom Ward Photography), originally from Caerphilly, Wales, will serve as Walker Cup Captain for the third time in succession as the GB&I team tries to win back the trophy in England next year. He is the first person in the modern era to be invited to captain the GB&I team three times. He will also serve as Captain of the St Andrews Trophy team for the third time in the biennial match as GB&I look to reclaim the trophy after the Continent of Europe’s narrow 12½ – 11½ victory at Portmarnock in 2012. A long-time member of Whitchurch Golf Club in Cardiff, Edwards played in four successive Walker Cup matches between 2001 and 2007. He was instrumental in GB&I’s 2003 victory at Ganton Golf Club, holing the winning putt, finishing undefeated and as the match’s leading points-scorer. After twice playing on the winning side, Edwards completed a hat trick of wins by captaining GB&I to victory in the 2011 match at Royal Aberdeen. Defeated by the US side in the 2013 match at the National Golf Links of America in Southampton, New York, the GB&I team will look to reclaim the Walker Cup on home soil in 2015. “I’m very proud to have the opportunity to captain the Great Britain and Ireland Walker Cup team for a third time in 2015,” said Edwards. “It will also be a privilege to lead the St Andrews Trophy team for a third time this year. Both events have long histories and we will be aiming to win back the trophies. I am looking forward to continuing my involvement and using my past experience as both a player and Captain to make sure the players are prepared to play to the best of their ability.” In addition to his Walker Cup successes, Edwards has been part of three victorious GB&I teams in the St Andrews Trophy, featuring in the winning 2002, 2004 and 2006 teams at Lausanne in Switzerland, Nairn in Scotland and Marianske Lazne in the Czech Republic respectively. He captained the teams which lost to the Continent of Europe at Castelconturbia in Italy in 2010 and Portmarnock in 2012. Edwards was also part of two winning European teams in the Bonallack Trophy match against the Asia-Pacific. “Nigel has demonstrated great passion and pride for the Walker Cup and the St Andrews Trophy and we are very pleased that he has accepted the invitation to lead the GB&I teams both this year and next,” said Jonathan Plaxton, Chairman of The R&A Selection Committee. “He has proven to be very popular with the players and his experience in the amateur game will continue to be a tremendous asset as he prepares teams for the St Andrews Trophy and the Walker Cup.” Edwards is currently Performance Director for England Golf, and previously served as Director of Player Development and Coaching at The Golf Union of Wales. 16 Jan 2014 Nigel Edwards reappointed as the Captain of the GB&I Walker Cup team last_img read more

Govt, Opposition strike deal on smooth conduct of Parliament

first_imgThe monsoon session of Parliament will not be a washout like previous sessions. In a major compromise struck between the government and the opposition, both sides have agreed on a way out.  The government has agreed for a debate under rule 184 on price rise. There is a provision for voting under this rule. As a result, Parliament will function normally from Wednesday. The breakthrough was announced by JD(U)’s Sharad Yadav after a series of interactions.  The first two days of the monsoon session have gone the winter session way. The government has a huge number of bills that is awaiting parliamentary clearance, but the House hasn’t been able to conduct any business so far. For the second day in a row, there was turbulence in both Houses, which were adjourned after three disruptions. NDA convenor Sharad Yadav told reporters, “Samjhaauta ho gaya (We have reached a compromise).”   Earlier, a torrent of issues ranging from price rise to demand for dismissal of Mayawati government and immediate execution of Ajmal Kasab and Afzal Guru on Monday drowned the second day of the monsoon session of Parliament. The Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha were adjourned for the day at 1400 hrs after two earlier adjournments with BJP, BSP, SP and Shiv Sena members storming the Well on diverse issues. The Left and the Right raised the issue of price rise with the BJP led by M. Venkaiah Naidu making a strong pitch in the Rajya Sabha for suspension of Question Hour to discuss the matter. Inflation in June stood at 9.44 per cent. Left parties in the Lok Sabha had given a notice for an adjournment motion on the issue of price rise. In the melee, Sports Minister Ajay Maken made a statement on the irregularities in the hosting of Commonwealth Games last year in which he sought to drag in the erstwhile NDA regime. Maken said the then NDA government had bypassed the Delhi government and made the Centre responsible for all financial and infrastructural obligations which was against established norms. It was trouble from the beginning in both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha as BJP members in the Upper House and those from the BSP, SP and Shiv Sena in the Lower House raised several issues simultaneously by storming the well. Both the Houses were first adjourned for nearly an hour till noon and then till 2 PM because of the ruckus.  – With inputs from PTIadvertisementlast_img read more

Lethal Lacazette the finisher Arsenal have prayed for

first_imgArsenal Lethal Lacazette the finisher Alexis & Arsenal have been crying out for Chris Wheatley Arsenal Correspondent Last updated 2 years ago 05:42 26/9/2017 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(8) Alexandre Lacazette Arsenal Getty Images Arsenal Arsenal v West Bromwich Albion West Bromwich Albion Premier League A. Sánchez Opinion Videos The France international scored two goals against a plucky West Brom side in his first start alongside Alexis in the league Alexandre Lacazette arrived at Arsenal for a club record fee and he is beginning to show glimpse of the quality which persuaded Arsene Wenger to sign him.The French striker has now scored in his first three Premier League home games for the club, a record exemplifying his predatory instincts in the final third and showing why the Gunners have needed a striker of Lacazette’s calibre for several seasons.Alexis Sanchez ended last season with 24 goals and 11 assists, but even that impressive tally could have been higher if he had Lacazette playing alongside him. In the first game the duo have started together they showed mutual understanding and excellent individual moments that contributed to Arsenal’s victory.

Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Sanchez is forever capable of the spectacular and his free-kick which led to Lacazette’s header shows what the two can do when they’re both on the pitch. Alongside Mesut Ozil the potential triumvirate in store for Arsenal fans will whet the appetites – even if two of them have contracts expiring next summer.It could have been different if West Brom were awarded what looked like a clear first half penalty when Shkodran Mustafi clipped Jay Rodriguez in the box, but Lacazette’s superb finishing and subsequent calmness from the spot in the second half gives Wenger’s side increased confidence going into the coming games.Arsenal’s next four league games are against Brighton, Watford, Everton and Swansea, and Wenger will take great comfort in the fact that he is able to call upon the likes of Olivier Giroud from the substitutes bench to help support Lacazette – not that it looks like he needs it at present!last_img read more
