Bears Academy announces groundbreaking partnership with Xledger

first_imgNot only will Xledger be sponsoring the Ashton Gate Stadium South Stand for a second year, Xledger has added a new agreement with the Bristol Bears Academy as part of its sponsorship.At a time when many businesses are withdrawing their commercial agreements with sporting organisations around the country, Xledger UK remains invested in supporting the role of Bristol Sport in the community. As part of the relationship, Xledger will be sponsoring youngsters from 13 years upwards through the Bristol Bears Academy programme.Mark Pullen, Xledger UK CEO, commented, “In addition to the great brand recognition we’ve received as a result of our sponsorship of the Ashton Gate South Stand, we really admire Bristol Sport’s approach to uniting the city through sporting achievement.’“We share Bristol Sport’s view in recognising the positive impact and powerful influence that sport has in the breaking down of social boundaries, between age groups and inequalities. Xledger UK is a Bristol business employing people who live and work in the region and we understand the value that the Bristol Bears Academy brings to young people as individuals, which extends far beyond the game of rugby.”Harry Rowson – a member of the Bears scholarship programme – is now undertaking an internship with Xledger as the club continues to develop its young players on and off the field.Emily Joyce, Bristol Sport Commercial Sales Executive, added, “Xledger share our vision for success and understand the importance of the local community and the role sport can play. 2020 has been extremely challenging for sport of all kinds all over the world. It is with great pleasure that we announce not only the renewal of the sponsorship of the Ashton Gate Stadium South Stand, but expand Xledger’s agreement to the benefit of the Bristol Bears Academy. Watch this space for further developments in the coming months.”Gethin Watts, Senior Academy Manager at the Bristol Bears, said: “The support from Xledger has been brilliant. It’s not just a commercial agreement, it’s a genuine partnership where the company are helping to develop our young players through their internship programme and are truly bought into the values of the Academy.Gary Townsend, Junior Academy Manager at the Bristol Bears, said: “For a company of Xledger’s reputation and success to be aligned with the Bears Academy is a major boost for everybody from Bears Aspire, Bears Excel and across the Junior Academy. We’re proud to work closely with Xledger going forward as we inspire the next generation of Bristol Bears stars.”Bristol based Xledger provide cloud-based finance software for mid-market organisations.

Player turns down Manchester United, signs new contract at club

first_imgHere’s a rumour which appeared and vanished very fast. It was first reported by the Brazilian media that Manchester United had made a bid of €50m for David Neres from Ajax. Then other claims said the bid was actually €60m. And shortly after that, the player renewed his contract with the Dutch side.It all seemed like an obvious move from agents who are seeking a contract renewal and feed the press with an interest from the Red Devils, like we’ve seen so many times.But now there’s some insistence that the Manchester United offer was real, and it was actually turned down by David Neres.Embed from Getty ImagesJorge Nicola, the same journalist who first reported the bid, now claims the player has ‘rejected’ Manchester United to become Ajax’s best paid athlete in the Dutch squad.It’s claimed Ajax believe he can be worth much more than the €50m offered by the Old Trafford side, and that’s why the bid wasn’t accepted. To sell him now, they wanted at least €70m. Now they have a big project for his future.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameWill You Build The Most Beautiful City?Forge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoDating.comTung Chung is actually full of single men.

Ibby conquers the mountain

first_imgPSC Golf from the Growling SwanMonday, May 18, Mt. Shadow – StablefordWarm weather and an empty car park greeted us today at the course.  Playing from the white markers suited the players as the scoring was sizzling on a course in top condition and with greens slower than usual. Ebrahim’s game ran the hottest and his forty two points attested to that.  Second place went to Alex Field, relegating Kissy Buchanan to third after both players handed in thirty nine points each.Peter Grey (left) with Monday winner Ebrahim Al-Ansari. Graham Rice, also on thirty nine points, missed the podium and was left ruing a brace of 2½-footers for birdies on the front nine par threes.  The gathered throng did not share in his disappointment.1st Ebrahim (15) 42pts2nd Alex Field (19) 39pts3rd Kissy Buchanan (17) 39ptsLong Putts: Mike Gosden, Jim Groves.Near Pins: Graham Rice (2), Kissy Buchanan, Alex Field.Peter Grey accepted The Coveted Compass Cap with alacrity and Deefa the dog was on hand to collect further donations to the needy of Pattaya.Wednesday, May 20, Wangjuntr – 3P ScrambleNine hardy souls made the midweek trek for our first look at the Jungle course with badinage in abundance.  The course was very picturesque and in superb condition.The Growling Swan crowd at Wangjuntr.Nearing the eleventh green the heavens opened up and thirty plus people sought shelter in the large drink hut nearby.  A Thai gentleman caddy opened his back pack, pulled out a bowl of chicken and rice and proceeded to hook into it big time.  One farang asked “aroy?”  The caddy responded in English, “Delicious thank you and I appreciate your enquiry.”One hour later play resumed and as per usual the greens were totally devoid of water.  Wes Rado produced a brand of long hitting not seen in many moons.  On the five hundred and forty one yard par-5 fourth, he pulled the big dog out of the holster and let her rip.  Then hit another driver off the floor to finish pin high for two and lipped out with the twenty-five yard chip for an eagle, phew!Playing from a handicap of 10.50 Wes, Tony Campbell and Mike Gosden shot seventy one off the rod for a net 60.50, which proved good enough to win.Glowing comments from a contented bunch confirmed we’ll do a return trip in the future.Note: The GS is a friendly golf outlet and caters for and encourages all golfers male and female to have a hit at any of our weekly outings.  We generally play Mondays and Thursdays at one of the many fine golf courses in and around Pattaya.  Please contact Peter Grey if you are interested on 0861 503086.The Growling Swan also caters to the bowls enthusiasts.  Bus transport departs the GS on Wednesdays at 10 AM to play at Cocos on undercover synthetic greens and on Sundays at the same time for open grass bowling at The Retreat.  Please contact Paul Rennison on 0843 454005 if you wish to partake.  The cost including return bus transport, bowling fees and a hot lunch is less than 400 baht so great value for a day out.last_img read more

Javier Tebas: Messi and Ronaldo leaving La Liga… impossible, like Catalunya’s independence

first_img He was asked about his support for Real Madrid and replied: “Clearly. If I say the contrary, that I support neither, then that would be hypocritical and I would be tainted as a liar. And I certainly don’t like to be called a liar.  “Imagine if I said that I loved all teams, and then it came out that I supported Madrid since I was a lad, went to 27 ‘Clásicos’ in the past, that I celebrated Madrid wins with friends in a bar… I prefer to call it as it is.” 16/11/2015 In an interview with Diario AS, Tebas said: “That Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi leave is like the independence of Catalunya, impossible.” Sport ENcenter_img CET Upd. at 20:24 La Liga president Javier Tebas has confirmed once more that he is a Real Madrid fan and that he can’t see a future without Messi and Ronaldo in the Spanish top flight.last_img read more

Roscommon and District League Pay Tribute to Ray Kirrane and Johnny Riddell RIP

first_imgWith the passing of Ray Kirrane and Johnny Riddell the Roscommon and District League lost two of its best known and loved people in the course of a week. Both Johnnie and Ray played a big part in the success of the League particularly during its early years. Ray Kirrane started playing in goals for his native and forever loved Castlerea Celtic back in the sixties before the formation of the Roscommon and District League. He played a big part in the formation of the very successful Roscommon and District league in 1970 and was a Referee, Chairman, Committee Member and President in the intervening years. He had an absolute love affair with the game and was one of the great characters of the game and was known and loved by people from all over the Country. Very seldom does a group of footballing people meet in Roscommon East Galway area without Ray Kirrane’s name being mentioned.Johnny Riddell and Ray Kirrane were really close friends and many the hours they spent chatting together with a love of the game and the Roscommon and District League a common bond.As a young man Johnnie played for Ballinasloe Town but it was as a Referee he was known all over Connacht. He was a top class Referee in the Roscommon and District League for over thirty years. His common sense approach made him a first choice Referee all over the province. His warm personality endeared him to everyone and when you met Johnnie in his native Ballinasloe time seemed to fly as all the recent games and incidents were discussed.Rather unusually Johnny never drove a car but his patient wife Betty drove him to all the games and she was as well known and loved as Johnny.The Roscommon and District League would like to extend their sympathy to the Kirrane and Riddell family.To Ray’s wife Mary and their sons and extended family we extend our deepest sympathy. To Betty Riddell and their Sons, Daughters and extended family we also extend our deepest sympathy.Heaven will never be the same again.May they rest in peaceprint WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Emaillast_img read more

Tax relief for individuals, companies

first_img11 February 2009The proposed adjustments to personal income tax schedules will provide middle and lower income earners with R13.6-billion in tax relief, Finance Minister Trevor Manuel announced on Wednesday.Delivering his 2009/10 Budget speech to Parliament in Cape Town, Manuel said the adjustments to personal income tax would fully compensate South Africans for wage inflation.“The tax-free income threshold next year will be R54 200 for taxpayers below the age of 65 and R84  200 for those over 65,” he said.The tax-free threshold for the 2009/10 tax year will effectively increase from R46 000 for those below the age of 65, to R54 200.The revised estimate for tax collection for 2008/09 is R14.2-billion, which is less than the National Treasury planned in its 2008 Budget, he said.“For the year ahead, the main budget revenue estimate is R50-billion lower than we projected in February last year, against the background of slower growth, depressed trade and declining company profits.”Tax relief is also proposed for companies that invest in energy-efficient technology, with an additional allowance of 15 percent, on condition that there is proof of the resulting energy efficiencies as certified by the Energy Efficiency Agency.The minister, on the basis of a letter sent as part of the “Tips for Trevor” initiative, said he had also proposed a tax on companies using incandescent light bulbs, in an effort to get people to make use of energy saving compact fluorescent light bulbs.Taxes on petrol and diesel will increase by 40.5 and 41.5 cents per litre respectively, the minister announced, adding that road users would have to fork out an additional 23 cents and 24 cents per litre as well for fuel levies.“As road-users know, there is a substantial increase in spending on maintenance and construction under way, and we still face a heavy burden of road accidents and associated compensation claims.“These are costs that have to be covered, and so there will be increases of 17.5 cents in the road accident fund levy.”As per the 2009/10 Budget proposals, a packet of cigarettes will now cost 88 cents more, a 750ml bottle of natural wine will cost 10.5 cents more, a 340ml can of beer will cost 7 cents more, and a 750ml bottle of liquor such as whiskey will cost consumers R3.21 more, he announced.Manuel said that after discussions with both organised labour and the mining industry, and taking into account the impact of the economic slowdown on the mining industry, he proposed that the new mining royalties regime be deferred to 2010.“This provides a boost to the industry of about R1.8-billion [which would have been paid to government], which will assist in minimising job losses,” he said.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more
