first_imgCornish pasty maker Warrens Bakery is to rebrand and expand retail shops, after receiving £1.6m in funding.The bakery, which recently won the claim of being the world’s oldest pasty-maker, was given the funding through Santander’s Breakthrough Programme. It will be using the money to expand retail activities in the West Country and further throughout the UK.Mark Sullivan, chairman of Warrens Bakery, said: “We’ve always had big ambitions for Warrens since acquiring the business in 2013 and recognising the enormous potential of the brand. The investment and strong personal support and involvement from Santander will help us to complete the next phase of growth, as we develop the brand and product range through our own stores, as well as with wholesale and retail customers.”The bakery currently operates 40 retail outlets, and has two major production units in St Just, Cornwall and Plymouth, Devon.Darren Hart, head of growth capital at Santander UK, said: “As the world’s oldest producer of Cornish pasties, Warrens Bakery has an enviable legacy and reputation for quality products. The business has experienced significant growth in recent years and we are confident that Warrens will be able to use the additional funding to expand its retail operations in Cornwall and beyond.”This comes amidst fears that the Cornish pasty could lose its EU protected status due to a proposed free trade deal between the European Union and the USA earlier this month.Warrens Bakery also supplies major retailers and wholesalers, both in the UK and overseas, through its expanding trade division, ‘Simply Cornish’.last_img read more

first_imgSyracuse’s offense, predicated on Terrel Hunt’s arm and hoping to run the ball much more effectively in 2015, badly needs a good season from its new-look offensive line. And SU offensive line coach Joe Adam, who has been playing musical chairs with his unit since the middle of last season, will look to accomplish that without his most reliable player from last season. Even with all the injuries that thinned the offensive line last season, it was expected that Sean Hickey would protect the the quarterback’s blindside at left tackle. But Hickey is entering training camp with the New Orleans Saints and the Orange is entering camp without a player of his caliber up front. Senior Ivan Foy is expected to succeed Hickey at left tackle after starting 19 games at right tackle over the last two seasons, and will be a crucial element in a zone-read scheme that will always be able to utilize more space. Around Foy are other players adjusting to new spots for the upcoming season. Senior Nick Robinson is flipping to left guard after starting 21 games at right guard the last two seasons. Senior Rob Trudo, who has started three years at guard, is transitioning to center to replace the graduated John Miller. Aaron Roberts is currently slated to play right guard after redshirting as a freshman last season. And junior Omari Palmer started nine games last year, including six at right tackle in place of an injured Foy, is expected to start in that spot.  AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut the most eyes will be on Foy, who is looking to adequately replace a player who went toe-to-toe with Clemson defensive end Vic Beasley on a bum left ankle and was the clear anchor of a unit that is now in need of one.

first_imgSion President Christian Constantin has been slapped with a 14-month ban for slapping former Switzerland coach Rolf Fringer.Costantin slapped Fringer during Sion’s 2-1 win over Lugano in the Swiss Super League on September 21.Apart from the ban, the 60-year old was also fined 100,000 Swiss francs (£77,804) as punishment for his offence after he was filmed slapping Fringer.According to Fringer, who is now a television pundit, the Sion President had hit him several times before the blow caught on tape.Costantin is therefore banned from entering all football-related venues though he has the right to appeal against the decision.The Swiss Football League via a statement said: “The violent behaviour of Christian Constantin against Rolf Fringer, which (Constantin) doesn’t deny, is clearly a violation of the rules of conduct.”RelatedFIFA Disgraces African Football Legend Kalusha BwalyaAugust 10, 2018In “Africa”Palestinian FA Boss Banned For Hateful Comments On MessiAugust 25, 2018In “Europe”Alex Song Completes Free Transfer Move To SionAugust 15, 2018In “Europe”last_img read more

first_imgRay Rice, right, and his wife at a press conference in suburban Baltimore to explain what happened without going into detail. The public now has access to the very graphic video showing the details Rice desperately tried to skirt around.A few NFL players spoke up loudly and publicly soon after the video showing Ray Rice actually throwing a devastating close-fist punch that knocked his then-fiance Jonay Palmer unconscious in a New Jersey casino elevator.That man should be thrown out of the NFL and thrown in jail” exclaimed Broncos defensive tackle Terrance Knighton tweeted a few moments ago. “Shame on those deciding his punishment. Smh.”Knighton continued, calling his fellow players to action.Longtime linebacker Scott Fujita, a former vice president of the NFLPA’s executive committee, shared Knighton’s sentiments about what he’d do to Rice.“I’m glad no one this morning seems to care about yesterday’s games,” he wrote. “This piece of s*** needs to be out of the league. Period.”The Ravens are also wiping the egg off their faces because they played a big part in protecting Rice’s honor, to the extent of live-tweeting his wife’s apology for getting knocked unconscious. But it’s good to know that members of Rice’s own fraternity of players are willing to say what the rest of the world is thinking.Here are Knighton’s thoughts in full:last_img read more

first_imgSubmitted by Oly Town ArtesiansThe Oly Town Artesians jumped out to a quick 5-0 lead in the first quarter and despite a one man fourth quarter comeback attempt, held on to knock off the Arlington Aviators 9-7 in the regular season finale at Olympia Indoor Soccer. Issa Hassan, William Ramirez, Sebastian Lyons and JC Henson each scored two goals and the Artesians finished their inaugural regular season on a high note, with a playoff game against the #1 seed Tacoma Stars on the horizon.William Ramirez got the Oly faithful on their feet early with a goal at the 12:27 mark of the first quarter. Over the next minute and a half, Sebastian Lyons and JC Henson each added a goal to give the Artesians a 3-0 lead before five minutes had elapsed in the game. Five minutes later, Nate Boatright added a goal to go up 4-0 and Issa Hassan closed out the scoring in the first quarter with 2:45 left and the the first 15 minutes came to a close with the Artesians up 5-0.The Aviators tightened up and held the Artesians scoreless in the second quarter and Winfred Smith’s goal with 10 minutes left in the third quarter got the Aviators to within two goals at 6-4. But Henson answered a minute later to give the Artesians a 7-4 lead and Lyons scored his second goal of the game with 6:55 left in the third to build an 8-4 lead.Aaron Burns did everything he possibly could do in the fourth quarter to get the Aviators back in the game. He opened the scoring with a power play goal at the 12:58 mark to get them to a three goal deficit at 8-5. Ramirez added an insurance goal for the Artesians with nine minutes left before Burns scored goals with 1:17 and 53 seconds left but Burns and the Aviators ran out of time and fell to 0-8-0 this season with a 9-7 loss.Nate Salveson made his first start of the season in goal and made numerous outstanding saves to pick up the win. The Artesians’ Technical Director and head coach and former Milwaukee Wave goalkeeper had played the entire season in the field but returned to goal tonight and will likely be between the pipes when the Artesians travel to Tacoma to take on That Team From Up North in the Western Indoor Soccer League playoffs next Saturday night.The WISL playoffs kick off on Saturday, February 7th. The Artesians clinched the #4 seed last weekend and will take on the #1 seed Tacoma at 7:30 PM at the Tacoma Soccer Center. The winner will take on the winner of the #2 Bellingham/#3 Wenatchee game in the WISL Championship on February 14th or 15th.For ticket information for the WISL Playoffs and for more news and information, follow the Artesians on Twitter (@OlyTownFC), Facebook (Facebook.com/OlyTownFC) and Snapchat (username: OlyTownFC) or visit their website at http://www.olytownfc.com.

He has a lot of company.The distance is rarely run in the United States, especially on dirt, but trainer Dan Hendricks feels it will be right in the wheel house for the six-year-old gelded son of Lawyer Ron. “His works have been great. It seems a mile and a half will be better for him,” Hendricks said.FINISH LINES: Turf marathon specialist Big John B, seventh in the grassy San Luis Rey Stakes March 13 after a wide trip, worked six furlongs Sunday in 1:14.20. Trainer Phil D’Amato has the seven-year-old Hard Spun gelding nominated to next Sunday’s Tokyo City Cup at a mile and a half on dirt . . .

Taylor Made and Perry Martin own California Chrome.Meanwhile, Espinoza, the transnational tourist, is laughing all the way to the bank, although the self-proclaimed “happy Mexican” doesn’t need a vault of dinero to appease him.Espinoza’s cut of the $6 million winner’s share is $600,000.“Victor has a smile on his face 24-7,” Beach said.Any wonder?

The son of Curlin was beaten 2 ¾ lengths despite trouble in the race.“I don’t have any complaints about how the San Felipe set up,” Desormeaux said about Exaggerator’s third-place finish behind front-running Danzing Candy and closer Mor Spirit. “He ran a decent middle quarter to make up the distance that he was from off the pace, and he should be able to do that.“The horse is very talented, yet I still can’t explain why he didn’t finish better. Even if there’s more speed in the Santa Anita Derby, it doesn’t matter to me. The way my horse ran last time, I hope he does the same thing, except for the finish.“I can’t explain why he didn’t finish.”Probable for the Grade I Santa Anita Derby: Danzing Candy, Mike Smith; Mor Spirit, Gary Stevens; Exaggerator, Kent Desormeaux; Uncle Lino, Fernando Perez; Smokey Image, Victor Espinoza; Iron Rob, Stewart Elliott; and Denman’s Call, Rafael Bejarano.last_img read more

first_imgWestern Bureau:Double ISSA Western Conference High School basketball champions Herbert Morison Technical are in pole position after Game One of their best-of-three finals on Wednesday, outlasting a spirited Cornwall College in both the Under-16 and U-19 categories at the Montego Bay Cricket Club court.The Dave Black-coached Herbert Morrison stopped Cornwall College by a comfortable 65-50 margin to win the senior match-up.But they were made to work much harder in the junior section by a Cornwall College side that was bent on turning the tables on the Herbert Morrison juggernaut. Herbert Morrison ultimately prevailed by a narrow 53-50 margin for the advantage heading into Game Two of the series.The reliable shooting guard, Ralique Grant, was in awesome form for his team, ending with a game-high 34 points.Grant, who is in line for the season’s MVP award, also had three rebounds, six steals, and three assists.Fellow guard Tafari Vassell added 12 points and 12 rebounds in a double-double effort for Herbert Morrison as Herbert Morrison sped off to a whirlwind 13-point lead (18-5) after just one quarter.Cornwall College rallied through Antonio Spence, especially in the second quarter. Spence eventually ended as his team’s top scorer with 16 points and pulled down 14 rebounds.But it was the defending champions all the way as they dominated all quarters, except in the fourth, as Spence and Leonardo Friginette threatened to wrest Game One from them. Friginette also recorded a double-double, hitting 15 points and 13 rebounds.In the end, Herbert Morrison had enough to post the victory, after posting (18-5, 15-12, 16-11 and 16-22) quarterly returns.It was not so comfortable for them, however, in the Under-16 category as Ojay Marshall and Alwade Thompson of Cornwall partnered superbly in trying to secure the much-needed win.Marshall’s 17 points and three rebounds and that of Thompson (12 points), propelled Cornwall College to within touching distance of a victory, but Herbert Morrison’s star shooter, Shaqueal Benti’s 17 points output, led the way.Benti was supported in the win by Ryheem Barrett, 13 points, while Davaughn Campbell chipped in with a useful 10 points, four rebounds, and eight steals.last_img read more
