Despite a near-perfect season with 21 goals in all competitions, St George’s College (STGC) talisman Alex Marshall says he is putting the team ahead of himself when STGC face reigning ISSA/Flow Super Cup champions Jamaica College (JC) in today’s final at the National Stadium.The former national Under-17 midfielder now plays centre forward for STGC to deadly effect, a fact evident also in the Super League where he has helped himself to six goals.Today, he will no doubt be locked in a duel against the equally gifted defensive grip of JC captain Allando Brown, who himself has impressed all season in the middle of JC’s defence.”I expect it to be a very intense match, so I am looking forward to doing well for the team. I hope, with God’s help, I can deliver goals and win the trophy,” he said.Marshall admitted that he was not at his imperious best against cross-street rivals Kingston College in their midweek Manning Cup game, but was happy to score and get the job done.”I wouldn’t say they rely on me, but they expect me to go out there every time I get the opportunity and make use of them.I aim to score 30 goals, so, hopefully, with God’s help I can win each final we play in and I can add more goals,” he pointed out.”We can win three trophies, we have the team that can do it, “stressed Marshall who was in for a rare substitution late in the game against KC.But no fears over his leading player’s fitness, says coach Neville Bell.”If you watch Alex, he enjoys his game more than anyone else I know. The reason I took him out, we had the game won and he was being beaten up all game,” Bell underlined.
A three-year-old child escaped being hit by nails fired from a nail gun by just inches when a gang attacked a Co Donegal home.The child was sleeping at his home in Letterkenny when his house was attacked by a gang of men. The men had been ordered by another man to visit the home of Donal Coyle at Glencar Park on November 6th, 2006.The men smashed up the home of Mr Coyle and his partner, breaking six windows before shooting nails around the house using a Hilti nail gun.The man who ordered the attack, Marcus Spratt, appeared at Letterkenny Circuit Court today charged with the possession of an offensive weapon, criminal damage and making threats to kill.Spratt, who was aged 24 at the time, was later arrested and appeared at Letterkenny Circuit Court in July 2012 where he pleaded guilty to the charges.However, when he was due for sentencing on July 19th, 2012, he failed to appear.Following a long-term investigation, Gardai last week travelled to London and arrested Spratt at Heathrow Airport and brought him back to Ireland on a European Arrest Warrant.Barrister for Spratt, Mr Ivan Toner told the court that his client believed that Mr Donal Coyle has attacked his van.He foolishly responded by calling people in Derry who visited Mr Coyle in his home and attacked the house.Spratt, of Gortnacorrib, Letterkenny, denied that he had been present at the house when it was attacked but was in another village, Convoy.He added that he was horrified when he later learned that there was a young child in the house when it was attacked by the gang under his orders.A victim impact statement on behalf of Mr Coyle was handed into the court by state prosecutor Ms Patricia McLaughlin.Barrister Mr Ivan Toner said that Mr Coyle and his client had since made up and that Spratt had since been living a successful life in London.His ex-partner, Ms Lyndsey McClelland had facilitated him in bringing the couple’s two sons to London and on holiday in Disneyworld, Legoland and Lanzarote.The court was told that Spratt said there were “certain issues” as to why he could not hang around and be sentenced.The court was also told that Spratt had produced €2,000 as an offer of compensation to Mr Coyle and his family.Judge John Aylmer adjourned the matter until Friday for sentencing.Child cheats serious injury after home attacked by gang with nailgun was last modified: January 24th, 2018 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:attackdonegalletterkennyMarcus Sprattnailgun
