Nervous Dehaney gears up for new experience in Australia

first_imgMICO University College’s Kadie-Ann Dehaney is the latest Jamaican netballer to go the professional route, as the former St Hugh’s High player has been offered a one-year contract to play for Melbourne Vixens in the Australia National League.The 20-year-old Dehaney, who will leave the island in a few weeks’ time, will join two other Jamaicans in the Australian league, which is set to begin in February next year.Malysha Kelly, who recently captained the Sunshine Girls in the recent three-match series against New Zealand, in New Zealand, will take up a one-year contract with the Adelaide Thunderbirds, while shooter Romelda Aiken has been a member of the Queensland Firebirds since 2008.Five other Jamaicans will also ply their trade in England soon.Dehaney, who started her netball career at Melrose Junior High School and who has represented Molynes United since her early days at Melrose, is excited for the opportunity to go overseas, but has mixed feelings.”I am nervous and I am puzzled because it will be a new culture for me. But at the same time it will be a great experience because I’ve always wanted to play at the highest level,” said Dehaney.She continued: “I was looking forward to representing Mico at the Inter-collegiate level because this would have been a new challenge for me after doing so well at the high school level and after going through orientation and meeting a lot of new friends it is kind of sad not to be spending more time with them.”Dehaney, who will be the youngest Jamaican to go on a professional netball contract, is still keen on education.”Academics is very important to me and I want to know that when I go there I can still continue with my schooling as I do not want to know that my friends are moving forward here and I am falling back, so this is something I will be making sure to continue when I leave,” said Dehaney.She pointed out that she thought twice before taking this decision, noting that her grandmother played a key role.Despite her tender age, Dehaney has had international experience as part of the successful Jamaica Under-16 team which toured Birmingham, England for a three-match series in 2012; Jamaica senior team that participated in the World Cup last year in Australia; and Jamaica’s Under 21 team which played against England in a five-match series last summer.President of Netball Jamaica, Dr. Paula Daley-Morris, says the move augurs well for the country’s netball.”I am very elated that Kadie-Ann has gotten the opportunity to go overseas to play because this is what we need for our players, for them to play consistently at the highest level as this will only help them to get better,” said Daley-Morris.”Definitely the experience will do her a whole lot of good and it is also good for netball in the country when several of these players can get contracts to go overseas and play. This is telling us that people are looking on our netball and I am happy that I am at the helm and hopefully after getting all the experience these players will come back and represent the country of their birth,” noted Daley-Morris.last_img read more

Kane has British PM flying the flag for W Cup matches

first_img0Shares0000British Prime Minister Theresa May has caught World Cup fever © AFP / Valery HACHELONDON, United Kingdom, Jun 27 – England’s bright start to the World Cup has infected even the normally placid British Prime Minister Theresa May with football fever as she flies the flag for Harry Kane’s young team.After more than half a century of heartache, fans have started to dream that England can emulate the team that won the 1966 World Cup, led by Bobby Moore. May said England’s flag of St George would fly proudly over her official residence at 10 Downing Street on the days the team were playing in Russia and during next year’s women’s World Cup in France.May, along with government ministers and members of the royal family, will not attend matches at the World Cup because of Russia’s alleged poisoning of a former Kremlin double agent in Britain earlier this year.England play Belgium on Thursday to decide who will finish top of Group G.“No 10 will be flying the England flag on the day of each of England’s matches from now on,” May told Parliament in answer to a question from a lawmaker of her own Conservative party. “We will be encouraging other government departments to do the same.“I’m going to go further than my predecessors. Next year we will do the same for the women’s World Cup.”Opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn — renowned for being reluctant to display overt patriotism — has a flag of St George in his office but would not be drawn on whether one would fly from Labour party headquarters.“Jeremy is a strong football supporter and he is supporting the England team and I’m sure he will find his own way of expressing that,” a source was cited as saying by Britain’s Press Association.The flag of St George will perhaps more contentiously be flown from the Scotland office, revealed May’s Secretary of State for Scotland David Mundell, who is confident the gesture will be reciprocated come the 2022 World Cup, when he fully expects the Scots will qualify.“Happy to do so as I am confident No 10 and other UK departments will be flying the Saltire in 2022,” Mundell said on Twitter.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
