They don’t just win, they win and they entertain, and that is what St George’s did. They played the best football in the competition; they entertained the crowd,” Miller told the audience.St George’s emphatically defeated former champions Jamaica College 4-0 at a packed National Stadium last Saturday.The school won another major award as its striker, Alex Marshall, won the Golden Boot for his six goals, and will also receive a scholarship grant of $100,000 from FLOW.Marshall, clearly not the biggest talker, except with the ball at his feet, said: “On behalf of the Manning Cup team, we would like to thank you all for your support. We really appreciate it. Thank you. Love you very much.”He was accompanied by his proud mother.St George’s Old Boys’ Association representative Michael Chai said: “I firmly believe that we will be coming here another morning with a different trophy on the podium. I want to thank all those who helped to make this a reality.”The coaching staff, the sponsors who chipped in, whether with cash or kind, on behalf of the old boys, thanks again for making this a reality,” he underlined.Principal Margaret Campbell expressed gratitude.”We just want to say we are proud of you, and thank you so much for all that you continue to do for us,” she said.Inspirational captain Shevon Stewart stressed: “We will continue to work hard to make St George’s the best team in 2015 and beyond. Greater things are still left to come under the guidance of our coach, Neville Bell.”last_img read more

first_imgFEW doubted the stamina of local man Johnny Patterson’s Rise to the Challenge project to cycle 26 counties for cancer.But not even the fanatically-fit Johnny could have completed that challenge on an empty stomach!So it’s just as well that Kavanagh’s SuperValu of Ballybofey and Donegal Town generously donated €300 worth of food for the event. Dedicated to “Real Food Real People”, SuperValu stepped up to nutritionally support the team and keep them fed and watered throughout their long trip home.Charlie Ferry, Manager of Kavanagh’s SuperValu Ballybofey said they were delighted to help Johhny out.“It was a pleasure to help out our local Donegal man Johnny Patterson to complete his mammoth task in aid of cancer. We were more than happy to donate food to fuel Johnny and his team along their journey”Putting their physical, mental and emotional determination to the test Johnny, accompanied by Darren McNamee mounted their bikes and took the road for their seven day  26-County Cycle for four cancer charities: Irish Cancer Society, Marie Keating Foundation, Donegal Hospice and the Oncology Unit at Letterkenny General Hospital. From an early morning start in Castlepollard on Friday 11th of March the boys rallied against the rain through Westmeath, Cavan, Monaghan, Louth, and Meath before navigating through Dublin, Kildare, Laois, Carlow and Wicklow.They journeyed to Wexford, Kilkenny, Waterford, Tipperary and Cork on Sunday. Monday brought them to Limerick, Kerry and Clare as they began the steep cycle back to the Northwest. They were off to Galway, Offaly and Roscommon on Tuesday and Wednesday saw them arrive in Mayo.With the Hills of Donegal in sight last Thursday they cycled through Sligo and Leitrim and finally home to Ramelton on Friday.Family, friends and neighbors took to the streets of Ramelton at 7p.m. Friday evening to warmly welcome the boys and the Rise to the Challenge team home.They were greeted by the Town Band playing their All Ireland Fleadh selection as they cycled the last of their grueling 1000 miles. After a fantastic overview of the boys accomplishment by Danny Cullen, and presentations to both Darren and Johnny the community joined in the O’Donnell Arms to share their journey through video footage.Johnny set out as one man with one goal and he extended many thanks to all those who helped him achieve his goal.“The level of support our initiative has received has been outstanding and has inspired me to complete the huge task we set out to do so many months ago.“ I would like to thank all involved especially to my family and friends, to Darren for travelling the long road home with me, to Michael Black for getting me on the bike, to all the Rise to the Challenge team for the help and support throughout the whole way and to Kavanagh’s SuperValu for the much needed and greatly appreciated meals at every stop” He also extended thanks to Aileen Boyce, Helen Crerand and the Donegal GAA team, and to Kevin and Marie McFadden for all their help in fundraising and organizing the 26-County Cycle for cancer.EndsSUPERVALU GETS JOHNNY ON HIS BIKE! was last modified: March 28th, 2011 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:charityKavanaghSuperValulast_img read more
