first_imgNEWCASTLE, England (AP): Georginio Wijnaldum scored four goals as Newcastle recorded their first win of the Premier League season in style yesterday crushing Norwich 6-2 at St James’ Park. The Dutch international scored twice, and Ayoze Perez added a third, as Newcastle led 3-2 at the end of an action-packed first half, with Dieumerci Mbokani and Nathan Redmond replying for the visitors. Wijnaldum followed up by scoring two more after the break, along with a 64th minute strike by Aleksandar Mitrovic. Steve McClaren’s Newcastle remains in the relegation zone, but moves from last place to 18th in the standings – two points behind promoted Bournemouth. The win also sets them up perfectly for next weekend’s derby trip to fellow strugglers Sunderland. Newcastle took a 14th-minute lead when, after a one-two between Moussa Sissoko and Mitrovic had not come off, the France international calmly shifted the ball before sliding it into the path of Wijnaldum, who finished efficiently. The lead lasted just six minutes when Sissoko’s absence allowed Robbie Brady, who had earlier rattled a post from distance, to find Martin Olsson down the left and his inviting cross was touched home by Mbokani. However, Wijnaldum struck once again to head Sissoko’s 26th-minute cross past goalkeeper John Ruddy, and when Perez beat Ruddy from close range after Olsson had blocked his initial effort, the Magpies looked to be well on their way with 12 minutes of the first half remaining. But Norwich grabbed a second lifeline within seconds. Olsson was allowed time and space on the left to cross, and Redmond was similarly unchallenged as he volleyed home from beyond the far post. As the former England coach talked to his players at the break, McClaren’s emotions will have been decidedly mixed after 45 minutes which had seen them play some wonderful, incisive football and also twice gift Norwich a way back into the game. Norwich laid siege to the Newcastle goal during the opening stages of the second half, but the task became more difficult with 64 minutes gone. Sissoko floated the ball into Mitrovic’s run and the Serbia international controlled with his chest before smashing a left-foot volley past the helpless Ruddy, whose afternoon took a further turn for the worse two minutes later. Sissoko and Wijnaldum combined to allow Daryl Janmaat to cross and Wijnaldum timed his run to perfection to complete his hat-trick with a close-range header. Although Redmond later struck the upright at the other end, the Dutch international’s 85th-minute shot was deflected into the top corner to round off a vital win for his team.last_img read more

first_imgBudget 2013 cuts for Co. Donegal Further Education sector are unjust and unfair, the Chairperson Co. Donegal Teachers’ Union of Ireland has said.Joanne Irwin said says cuts here are an attack on “some of the most marginalised and vulnerable learners in the county.”She told Donegal Daily today: “It is a backward step in terms of equality, tackling disadvantage and attempting to provide a level playing field in education. “The further education sector provides a high quality alternative to mainstream higher education for students whose aptitudes and interests lie in areas as diverse as animation, music, horticultural and jewellery design.”She said the increase in the pupil/teacher ratio announced in the Budget will result in the loss of 200 full time teaching posts nationally.“In reality 500 teachers will lose their job as many teachers are now part time. This is a huge reduction in frontline staffing levels,” said Ms Irwin.The union leader said cuts would hit Further Education students worst including: • Second chance / adult learners– Those who left education during the Celtic Tiger with no formal skills or qualifications– Those who are qualified in areas where there are no longer employment opportunities who need to up-skill and retrain– Stay at home parents whose families have grown up and who wish to train / up-skill in order to re-enter the labour market• Unemployed citizens who wish retrain/upskill to re-enter the labour market or start their own business. • Students who were not ideally suited to mainstream education, because, in many cases, it did not address their particular interests and aptitudes.• Some students/school leavers choose PLC schools to undertake particular high quality, specialist courses – performing arts, green energy, art and design, cloud computing etc.“Some of these students come with particular educational challenges and therefore need particular and focused support,” said Ms Irwin.“This is why smaller class sizes are vital in the sector. In addition, many of the courses have a focus on practical work and small classes are essential for these courses.” She added: “Now is not the time to cut a sector specially equipped to retrain and upskill our unemployed citizens. The budget measure is counter-productive. It will lead to further educational inequality and societal division.”CUTS IN DONEGAL EDUCATION ATTACK ON SOCIETY’S WEAKEST, SAYS LOCAL TEACHERS’ UNION CHAIR was last modified: January 2nd, 2013 by BrendaShare 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:CUTS IN DONEGAL EDUCATION ATTACK ON SOCIETY’S WEAKESTdonegaleducation cutsSAYS LOCAL TEACHERS’ UNION CHAIRlast_img read more
