Related Items:Irina Poltorotskaya ShareTweetShareShareEmailCommentsThe Russian boss of WHC Vardar Skopje, Sergey Samsonenko, is in playing mood again. After surprising convincing defeat in French Metz over home team 42:28, which was second in a row after home loss against ZRK Buducnost, the chairman of Macedonian champions decided to change the coach again!Spaniard David Davis is going back to the men’s team for the second time, where he will continue to work as an assistant of Raul Gonzales. David was the third solution on the bench in this season as long-term coach Indira Kastratovic was replaced by Samsonenko in the middle of the season. After few matches on the bench, Russian boss put Davis in charge.The new coach is Irina Dibirova (ex Poltoratskaya), one of the biggest names of Russian handball in the last decade, fantastic playmaker, but without any coaching experience. The wife of Timur Dibirov will try to reach the basic goal – qualifing to Women’s EHF Champions League Final4 in Budapest, as quarter-final is already ensured.However, coach with lack of experience will hardly help the team who is desperately looking for the European elite competition title.PHOTO: Click to comment ShareTweetShareShareEmaillast_img read more

Green Cargo orders Traxx locos for steel contract

first_imgSWEDEN: Green Cargo has placed a €51m order with Bombardier for 16 Traxx F140AC electric locomotives. To be delivered between February and July 2010, they will be used on freight trains to be operated under a 10-year contract with steel sheet and plate producer SSAB. Green Cargo’s SKr2·5bn transport contract with SSAB was announced on October 30, and covers the movement of more than 4 million tonnes of slab and rolled steel a year in 2010-19. There will be three return trains a day between Luleå and Borlänge, and two between Borlänge and Oxelösund. Green Cargo will also undertake shunting at the SSAB plants in Oxelösund and Borlänge. ‘We want to have the best possible environmental performance of the SSAB transport system’, said Fredrik Sand, Purchasing Manager at SSAB Tunnplåt. ‘The Green Cargo investment in new electric locomotives reduces the energy consumption for our steel transport by more than 15%. Green Cargo is also replacing the engines of the diesel locomotives used for shunting at the SSAB plants to enable the carbon dioxide emissions to be lowered by around 20% and particulates emissions by around 60%.’last_img read more

Notts County sacked boss John Sheridan after foul-mouthed rant at referees

first_imgNOTE – Strong language below Sheridan was sacked by Notts County in early January and soon returned for a third spell at Oldham New Notts County owner Alan Hardy has revealed manager John Sheridan was sacked for gross misconduct following his expletive-laden rant at match officials. Sheridan departed the League Two club on January 3 after a run of nine successive league defeats, which left theMagpies just one place and one point above the relegation zone.But Hardy has revealed he wasn’t axed from the Meadow Lane hotseat because of the team’s miserable run of results.Last week, a Football Association document was made public for the first time detailing the foul and abusive comments made by Sheridan towards referee Eddie Ilderton and fourth official Matthew Donohue during a 2-0 defeat to Wycombe on December 10.The report revealed details of Sheridan saying to Donohue ”You’re a f****** c***. A c***.” before shouting at Ilderton ”You’re a f****** disgrace, you’re f****** useless, you’ve not f****** got anything right today, you should be f****** ashamed, you’re f****** s***, my kids aren’t going to get any f****** Christmas presents because of f****** you”.The tirade of abuse led to Sheridan, who has since returned for a third manager spell at Oldham, receiving a five-match ban.“I wish to make it clear that this sort of behaviour by any employee of this club will not be tolerated,” said Hardy in a statement on the club’s official website.“It was our decision to terminate the contract based on what I read in the referee’s report regarding the incident. This is a family-friendly club which aims to be a pillar of the local community.“Comments of the type made by Mr Sheridan were utterly appalling and wholly unacceptable, completely undermining the community spirit and focus we are striving to develop here.“In light of the recent disclosure of the referee’s report, I thought it appropriate to communicate the exact reasons behind the course of action we took.”Sheridan admitted the charge on December 15 and the FA’s Independent Regulatory Commission reported that the 52-year-old former Leeds and Sheffield Wednesday midfielder latter ‘submitted a letter apologising unreservedly for his actions.’Sheridan has since been replaced as manager at Notts County by former Leyton Orient boss Kevin Nolan. 1last_img read more

JetHawks’ pact with Arizona

first_imgLANCASTER -The JetHawks’ six-season affiliation with the parent Arizona Diamondbacks could soon end. Or not. With just more than a month remaining in the JetHawks’ player-development contract with Arizona – a contract that will expire when the regular season does on Sept. 4 – the future of the relationship, by all accounts harmonious, remains uncertain. The JetHawks are among seven California League teams whose PDCs will expire at the end of the season. The San Jose Giants (San Francisco Giants affiliate), Lake Elsinore Storm (San Diego Padres) and Rancho Cucamonga Quakes (Angels) are the only teams locked into contracts through 2008. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREFrumpy Middle-aged Mom: My realistic 2020 New Year’s resolutions. Some involve doughnuts.But amid a steady stream of rumors suggesting the JetHawks will soon be changing affiliates, JetHawks general manager Brad Seymour suggested that Arizona probably isn’t going anywhere, and Arizona farm director A.J. Hinch supported that assertion, although in less-strong language. Seymour left the door open to the possibility of a change, but indicated the JetHawks are not interested in “making a change just for the sake of change.” “We’re very happy with the Diamondbacks,” Seymour said. “If other opportunities came about, we would look into them …, but it would really have to be special for something like that to happen.” Hinch, who already has visited Lancaster several times this season, said the franchise appears to be well-run. He said he will establish the foundation for negotiations with the JetHawks when he visits Lancaster this weekend, noting that the discussions will be more about process than substance. Hinch said the Diamondbacks will factor in the length of the current relationship with Lancaster, along with the quality of treatment players and his staff have received. He said he will suggest unspecified minor changes that the Diamondbacks would want if they remained at Lancaster. “Overall, we’ve been very happy,” Hinch said. That said, both organizations are rumored to be pursuing other options. JetHawks are rumored to be interested in a deal with the Seattle Mariners, their affiliate the first five years of the franchise’s existence (1996 through 2000). The JetHawks had a turbulent relationship with Seattle under the former ownership group headed by Mike Ellis, which privately complained that the Mariners were reluctant to send Lancaster the top pitching prospects. In addition to the shared history, a future Lancaster-Seattle link makes sense because the new ownership group, headed by Peter Carfagna, has a relationship with the Mariners. Carfagna owns the Mariners’ short-season Everett, Wash., affiliate. The Diamondbacks are rumored to be interested in an affiliation deal with Modesto, which is Arizona general partner Jeff Moorad’s hometown. Seymour said no discussions, informal or otherwise, between the JetHawks and Seattle have taken place. He noted that such discussions would violate rules of the National Association (baseball’s governing body). Proven violations of such rules call for prohibitive fines – $500,000 for parent clubs and $250,000 for affiliates. Teams are permitted to negotiate PDCs with existing affiliates and typically sign extensions earlier in the season. Seymour and Hinch both have had reasons for putting off contract negations. Seymour said the JetHawks team has been busy developing a business plan under its new ownership group. Hinch said he didn’t want to extend or break an existing PDC based on conclusions others had drawn. Arizona hasn’t extended its PDC with any of its six minor league affiliates. “I guess the way I viewed the process is a little bit slower than it has historically been done, but I wanted to visit all the stadiums and draw my own conclusions,” Hinch said. “Now we’re going to start talking.” [email protected] (818) 713-3607160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
