1 Chelsea are ready to sell Diego Costa back to Atletico Madrid – and replace him with Arsenal and Liverpool target Gonzalo Higuain.According to Spanish newspaper AS, Costa could be on his way back to the Spanish capital after just two seasons at Stamford Bridge, where he has scored 32 goals in 54 Premier League appearances.Chelsea have already splashed the cash on striking reinforcements this summer, landing the highly-rated Belgian Michy Batshuayi for £33million from Marseille.But they appear ready to part with Brazil-born Spaniard Costa, as long as they can seal a deal to replace him with Napoli’s Higuain.The 28-year-old is in high demand this summer after scoring a staggering 36 goals in just 35 Serie A outings last term, attracting the attention of both Arsenal and Liverpool.Higuain has a minimum fee release clause of £78m set in his contract and Napoli insist they will not sell for any less.But this report has claimed that Chelsea are confident of landing him for less than that and are currently drawing up a suitable bid. Gonzalo Higuain is wanted by Chelsea, according to reports in Spain
GLENSWILLY retained their Division One status today with a fine victory over Malin in the relegation play-off – and were then stunned when joint managers John McGinley and Gary McDaid said they were stepping down.The duo had led the small parish side to the county championship just a few weeks ago.And they finished their fine season with the superb seven point win over Malin in the play-off at MacCumhaill Park Ballybofey this afternoon. Glenswilly showed what the top flight status meant from the start with a point from McFadden after just 40 seconds before Neil Gallagher fisted a goal to the back of the Malin net.The Inishowen men saw Seamus Doherty point but Glenswilly hit back with more scores from McFadden and Murphy, playing at half-forward.The county champions quickly had a five point lead – which they were never to surrender.Murphy, Gallagher and McFadden were in fine form throughout the game and despite the best efforts of Declan Walsh and Matthew Byrne, Glenswilly were just too good on the day. The final score Glenswilly 1-13 Malin 0-09 – was a fair reflection on the game.But the Glen must be wondering how they can repalce John McGinley and Gary McDaid who stepped down from their roles tonight.GAA: SHOCK AS GLENSWILLY MANAGERS QUIT AFTER INCREDIBLE SEASON was last modified: November 20th, 2011 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:glenswillyMalin

When the second annual Crown City Classic begins on Nov. 28 at PHS, more high-profile teams have joined the lineup, and the tournament has increased from eight to 12 teams. The biggest attraction is Coliseum League-champion Fremont, which was 20-3 last year and advanced to the L.A. City section semifinals before losing to eventual champion Fairfax. Tucker hopes the tournament can reach 16 teams by next season, and already has a commitment next year from powerful Dominguez, which beat the Bulldogs in March’s Div. II-AA championship game. Tucker is hoping that some of the area’s other local teams from the San Gabriel Valley will show interest in the future. He would love to add La Canada, but they’re busy with their own tournament. Fortunately for area fans, La Canada will face PHS in the Nike Shootout at Azusa Pacific University this December. “To play in this tournament now and in the future you have to bring it,” Tucker said. “Every night is going to be a tough test and that’s the way it should be.

Notable teams from the Southern Section include Cajon (22-7), a Division II-A semifinalist that features sharpshooter Aaron Williams, and Arroyo Valley (22-8), a Div. I-A semifinalist. Of course Muir (17-12), a Div. III-A semifinalist welcoming back coach Rocky Moore, and PHS (27-4) a Div. II-AA finalist, are welcoming the challenges that lie ahead. “I think the best thing to do is make it the most competitive we can, because that’s what people want,” PHS coach Tim Tucker said. “I thought the community of Pasadena and the surrounding area really embraced the tournament last year. “To have Muir and PHS play four games and reach the final was a bonus. We both usually go out of town for tournament games, so I know locally, it was really appreciated and this is something we have to do every year to give our local fans big games in their own back yard.” There were nothing but packed crowds at Pasadena High School for last year’s inaugural Crown City Classic boys basketball tournament, in which Muir defeated PHS, 50-48, for the championship. It was a rare treat for San Gabriel Valley hoops fans, who not only got to witness locals PHS and Muir play a tournament close to home, but also were introduced to several teams from the Los Angeles City Section.
MONTEREY PARK – Mayor Frank Venti has teamed up with a toy maker to provide kids in hurricane-affected areas with gifts this Christmas.“There’s thousands and thousands of kids out there who are going to have a sad Christmas,” Venti said. “Because their homes are gone, their schools are gone and their parents are out of a job.”So Venti and Councilwoman Betty Tom Chu have teamed up with Megatoys owner Charles Woo in an effort to send about 7,000 toys to kids in the Gulf states.Golden Security Bank of Alhambra donated 10,000 rubber wrist bracelets with a red, white and blue marble pattern to the Monterey Park City With a Heart Committee, which is selling the bracelets for $5.So far, Venti and the committee have raised $55,000 for hurricane victims.The committee has 7,000 bracelets left, and for each bracelet sold Woo will donate a toy with the rough wholesale price of $10.Venti, Chu and Woo met up at Megatoys’ downtown location on Thursday to work out the details. “I’ll even pay for the shipping, so you don’t have to touch anything,” Woo told them.The toys will be dropped off at a Salvation Army warehouse near the affected area. Venti plans to fly out to the region to oversee distribution of the gifts.Local service clubs and high school students have been recruited to sell the bands, Chu said.“I think this is a wonderful idea,” Woo said. “We’re in the business of making kids happy.” email@example.com(626) 962-8811, Ext. 2717 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

DONEGAL singer Daniel O’Donnell impressed on the first show of BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing.But he admitted he might have to get a bit fitter over the next few weeks.And he says his fans would prefer ballroom dancing to the tango! Daniel said he hopes his Strictly dance partner Kristina Rihanoff can turn his “one pack into a six pack”.The Donegal man took to the floor for the group dance – and was right on time throughout.Meanwhile members of the official fan club have now said they plan to enlist the help of friends and family in the UK to vote on their behalf, buy tickets for live shows, and even cross the border to the north to make the all-important phone call – because viewers here can’t vote in the show.Gavin Boyle, 38, said he would travel from his home in Sligo to stay with friends in Enniskillen for Saturday nights, with others planning to send money to relatives in the UK to compensate for their phone bill. “The general consensus from everybody I have spoken to is that they should persuade anyone who belongs to them in the UK to vote,” said Mr Boyle, who went to his first O’Donnell concert aged eight.“It’s the support that he deserves.”Ann Cassidy, a post mistress, said she had persuaded her cousins in England to vote on her behalf, as well as applying for tickets to the live showsDANIEL IMPRESSES ON STRICTLY AND DECLARES: ‘I’LL SOON HAVE A SIX-PACK’ was last modified: September 5th, 2015 by John2Share 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:daniel o’donnelldonegalStrictly Come Dancing
