first_imgJamaica and West Indies batsman Nkrumah Bonner will be aiming to make an impact in the four-day West Indies Professional League this season with his new team, the Leeward Islands Hurricanes. Bonner, who was not re-signed as one of Jamaica’s 15 contracted players, was drafted by the Leewards during this season’s annual player draft. “I want to make an impact with the Leewards, and hopefully take my career to another level,” said Bonner, one of two mandatory overseas players picked by the Leewards. “For the past two years, I have not been performing well in four-dayers, and this I want to change. “I am now in good shape both physically and mentally, and plan to go there and do my best, which I hope will be enough to see the team challenge for the title.” The 26-year-old, who represented West Indies in two Twenty20 Internationals four years ago, but has failed to kick on, has had a checkered regional career. In 40 first-class matches, he averages 21.19, and has made one century and seven fifties. He, however, boasts a slightly better one-day record, averaging 34.17 in 34 appearances, and has scored three hundreds and five half-centuries. “I have been performing fairly well in one-day cricket. It is just for me to transfer that energy and aggression to the four-dayers,” he said. “Once I do that and demonstrate more concentration and discipline, I know I will do well.” Meanwhile, Bonner, who was initially drafted by Trinidad and Tobago Red Force and was later swapped with the Leewards’ final pick, Narsingh Deonarine, said he holds no ill feelings to the Jamaica selectors. “I was not surprised at being dropped by Jamaica,” he said. “It was a job, and like any 9-5, if you do not perform your services can be terminated. “I am, however, lucky enough to be contracted by another team. I can focus on my game, and don’t have to fight as a pay-for-play player .” Bonner will be based in St Kitts and Nevis.last_img read more

first_imgA Letterkenny Town councillor has slammed the findings of a report into cleanliness at Letterkenny General Hospital.Gerry McMonagleSinn Fein Councillor Gerry McMonagle said he is dismayed by the findings of the HIQA report and said management must act immediately on it.Dirty baths threatening the health of newborns were among a catalogue of neglect posing a significant risk to patients at the hospital. Other comments related to the management at Letterkenny General Hospital where health chiefs described the management as being lax in relation to allowing rooms where chemicals, painkillers and other strong medications remain unlocked.Cllr Mc Monagle said: This is a very damming report on the cleanliness of the hospital and one that the management at the hospital must address immediately.“What we don’t want is for the hard working staff at the hospital to be held responsible for this damming report.“For a long time now I and my colleagues have been flagging up to the hospital management and indeed the Minister of Health James Reilly what the effects of their cutbacks to the health service would produce, and now we have the evidence which in the wording of the report would suggest that the physical environment was not effectively managed and maintained to protect patients and reduce the spread of healthcare associated infections” He said hospital management must study the report in detail and said they cannot continue to try and run a large hospital like Letterkenny on a shoe string budget.“Patients who are already ill should not be open to further infections due to cutbacks in staffing levels” the management must stand up and fight for extra resources from the government instead of trying to implement their failing health policies.“I am now calling on Dr James Reilly to make extra resources available to the hospital management and not to allow the blame for this report to rest with the hardworking staff of the hospital as governments often do.” COUNCILLOR SAID HE IS ‘DISMAYED’ BY DAMNING HOSPITAL REPORT was last modified: April 26th, 2013 by StephenShare 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:CLLR GERRY MCMONAGLELetterkenny General Hospitalreportlast_img read more
