Newcastle hold Man U

first_imgLONDON (AP):As Wayne Rooney went a 10th game without scoring for Manchester United, an English striker did manage to score a hat-trick yesterday – Callum Wilson of Bournemouth.It was a landmark treble for the player and his team, both newcomers to the Premier League.In edging a wild encounter at West Ham, 4-3, Bournemouth, for the first time in their 125-year history, scored goals in the top flight of English football and won their first game.It was just the kind of attacking enterprise that Rooney’s United was missing in their 0-0 draw with Newcastle.Bournemouth, who came close to going out of business and dropping out of the fourth professional division in the last decade, had lost their first two Premier League games without scoring.DUG DEEPWilson sent Bournemouth into a 2-0 lead at half-time, but the visitors had to dig deep after Mark Noble and Cheikhou Kouyate brought West Ham level after the break. Marc Pugh restored Bournemouth’s lead and Wilson completed his treble from the penalty spot after West Ham defender Carl Jenkinson was sent off for clipping Max Gradel in the box.Tottenham and Sunderland are still searching for their first wins after draws yesterday.In a lively final 10 minutes at Leicester, Dele Alli headed Tottenham in front, but it was quickly cancelled out by Riyad Mahrez, who preserved the hosts’ unbeaten start to the season.Former Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe was on target, securing Sunderland’s first point of the season by cancelling out Bafetimbi Gomis’ goal in a 1-1 draw with Swansea.Crystal Palace have six points from a possible nine after Bakary Sako scored his first goal for the team to clinch a 2-1 win over Aston Villa.In Norwich, Xherdan Shaqiri marked his Stoke debut by setting up Mame Biram Diouf’s opener, but Russell Martin equalised in one of several games that required drinks breaks because of the heat.last_img read more


first_imgAndrew and Darren in Enniskillen. Pic William WallaceA FATHER and son from Glasgow who made headlines around the world because of their peaceful protest against the G8 in Fermanagh say the are proud of their Donegal roots.Andrew and Darren Carnegie – and their pet dog Grace – spent five days at a peace camp in Enniskillen before marching to the security fence surrounding world leaders at the Lough Erne Resort.Picture of the duo, from Black Hill in Glasgow, have been seen around the globe. The protest was the most peaceful in the history of G8 meetings, with not a single arrest.“My grandad was a McDevitt from Donegal and we’re very proud of our links to the county,” said Andrew, an artist.“There is a huge connection between Black Hill and Donegal; there are so many families with links.“Now that we’ve made it as far as Fermanagh, the next time we’ll be back and going to Donegal.” Son Darren said the huge links between Glasgow and Donegal were misunderstood by many people.“When Aiden McGeady chose to play for Ireland we understood it because we do see ourselves as Irish, but a lot of people didn’t get it,” he said.“We’ll definitely be back and next time it will be to Donegal to maybe trace some relatives.”Andrew says he’d love to bring some of his soccer teams over for some games in Donegal.“But I don’t think we could manage the gaelic football,” he said. The father and son, who protested against the G8 at Gleneagles in Scotland seven years ago, are heading back home to Glasgow this morning.They have won praise from the local police.Added Andrew: “I came to Ireland because I thought it was important to tell the world’s leaders that they are doing nothing to help the poor people on this planet.“Last week I found two people going through the rubbish of my bins looking for food. That’s in Glasgow in 2013. And one person dies from starvation in this world every ten seconds. Nothing has been done here to stop that. That’s the disgrace of it all – not our being here.” ‘WE’RE PROUD OF OUR DONEGAL ROOTS’ SAY ANTI-G8 CAMPAIGNERS was last modified: June 19th, 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:’WE’RE PROUD OF OUR DONEGAL ROOTS’ SAY ANTI-G8 CAMPAIGNERSlast_img read more
