Terminators FC Urged to Support Leadership

first_imgEx Mighty Barrolle goal-getter Jonathan Armah Baxter has been commended for his initiative and consistent recommendation for APM Terminals’ Terminators recent trip to Grand Bassa County.Speaking at the end of the two-day visit yesterday in Buchanan, Mr. Karl Gnonlonfin, head of Health Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE) at APM Terminals, who accompanied the team told the players of the former striker’s invaluable contributions towards the team’s successful trip.“I think if anyone deserves credit that person is Baxter,” Mr. Gnonlonfin said, as players cheered, minutes before they boarded their vehicles to return to Monrovia yesterday.He told the players that APM Terminals believes in quality of its name.“We want to develop a team so that whenever we meet our opponents in a match we can win without question,” Mr. Gnonlonfin said, as the players cheered him.He told the players that losing 2-1 to LAC Defenders last Sunday in a friendly match celebrating Liberia’s 168th Independence Anniversary, in the wake of their short preparation and long ride from Monrovia, is an indication that the team could do better in the future.“Work with Mr. Baxter,” he urged them, “so that all of you can develop a better team that can represent us in the future.” He said he observed a good number of players on the team who must work together cohesively.“You have players but not a team,” he said. “You must work together and develop a team.”He told them to provide support to the initiatives of Mr. Baxter and develop corps of officers to run the affairs of the sports association.“I will give you my push,” he told them, “if you organize yourself and support each other with a great deal of discipline.” He said soccer has passion that makes people spend huge sum of money to either watch it or to support it.Mr. Gnonlonfin, who played football in high school but only played during his first year in college, said soccer’s ability to bring people together to support a common cause is overwhelming.“I saw on the field how people were cheering for either of the teams and this was good,” he said, promising that December will see another outing for the team. It is the team’s second outing; the first was a trip to Bomi County.Jonathan Armah Baxter played in the 1980s for several clubs, including St. Joseph’s Warriors, NPA and Mighty Barrolle. He has a wealth of experience in coaching and team management. The team is coached by ex NPA star George Paintsil.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Exclusive – Steven Gerrard has quit England duty to lead Liverpool to the title, says Anfield great

first_imgBruce Grobbelaar believes Steven Gerrard’s decision to call time on his England career is down to his determination to win the Premier League with Liverpool.Gerrard has never won the title and, having come so close last year, Grobbelaar reckons the Reds skipper has quit international duty in order to focus all his energies on achieving his dream.“His last wish is to lift the Premier League trophy,” said the former Liverpool goalkeeper, speaking on Extra Time.“He wants to win the title. He has dedicated himself to the club and he is going to do his best to make sure, in his last four years, the club win the Premier League. Then he can say he has done it all.”Former England boss Sven-Goran Eriksson believes Gerrard should have continued his international career, but Grobbelaar insists the 34-year-old has made the right call, for himself and for his club.“He has played flat out for England for many, many years and he has done very well. Now he needs to be focused on the Liverpool set-up and I think that is an admirable thing to do,” added the Anfield great.“For the club, it is a brilliant decision, because when you go to all these places to play these friendlies with the national side, he could come back with an injury and that could affect Liverpool in the Champions League. It is very good that he has done it.”last_img read more
