“Measure your expectations of us”- Felix Annan to Kotoko fans

first_imgAsante Kotoko goalie and captain, Felix Annan, has called on the team’s fans to be tempered in their expectations of the players as they try to make their way through the CAF Champions League and other assignments in the coming months.Kotoko made it first round of the Champions League after they beat Kano Pillars 2-0 in Kumasi on Sunday to progress 4-3 on aggregate.They will face Champions League big timers, Etoile du Sahel of Tunisia, in the next round and they will hope to make it to the group stage but Annan wants the fans to keep their cool and not to place huge pressure on the team to get the needed results in the competition.“As players, we are very ready to give 200 hundred percent but we want to tell the fans that they should limit their expectations of us. This is a new team and players are trying to gel.Their efforts are not bad at the moment. There will be improvements as we go along. We will give our best but they need to take things easy for us and keep supporting us and we will do our best for them.”Annan shared his thoughts on the victory the team got over Kano Pillars and said that it was good to see that they executed well on the day and they gave the fans a very good result.“We got the result that we wanted. We used the experience of playing in last season’s CAF Confed Cup and it was something special. We are happy to have made it through to the next round.It would have been a big blow if we had failed because of the expectations of the fans. If we did not win, we would feel as though we had not done our job. We are happy and we will try to get through to the next stage.”last_img read more

Ballybofey man ‘incapable’ of complying with bail orders is remanded

first_imgA Ballybofey man has been remanded in custody at Castlerea Prison to appear by video link at Letterkenny District Court after being rendered ‘incapable’ of complying with bail conditions.Darius McAteer was arrested on Wednesday, April 4, 2018 for offences contrary to sections 6 and 8 of the public order act. The accused was conveyed to Letterkenny Garda Station and made no reply when cautioned and charged. McAteer is subject to a curfew between 8pm and 8am.Garda Keon said McAteer stood accused of a ‘large number of alleged offences’  and that McAteer had broken the curfew on Tuesday, April 3, and Wednesday, April 4.Inspector Barry Doyle said he was objecting to bail.“He has no regards for the conditions that were set out,” Inspector Doyle said.The court heard that on Wednesday, April 4, McAteer intervened and ‘was obstructive’ while the driver of a car in which he was traveling was being arrested for road traffic offences.Under conditions of bail, McAteer is to remain sober.“He had consumed drink but at that time he was not intoxicated,” the Garda said. “He was directed to leave on a number of occasions.”McAteer was arrested at 8.06pm.Defending solicitor Frank Dorrian said that McAteer was unable to arrive home before his curfew as his transport was ‘lo longer available to him’.Mr Dorrian said: “He openly makes the case that the inability to get home was not of his own doing. He could make it home in ten minutes, but that is impossible on foot. The car was at a service station ten minutes before the curfew began.”On Tuesday, April 3, Sergeant Lynch said he responded to a call about a vehicle parked at the rear of the Millbrae Surgery in Stranorlar.“It was indicated that a number of persons were in the car, that cans of alcohol were thrown from the vehicle and that people got out an urinated in the car park,” Sergeant Lynch said, adding that he found McAteer to be intoxicated.Later that night, at 9.15pm, Sergeant Lynch responded to reports of three people drinking in a stairwell at the Navenny Car Park in Ballybofey and found the same three persons.“Mr McAteer was intoxicated and was the worse for wear and there was an amount of drink present,” Sergeant Lynch said.Sergeant Lynch said McAteer had ‘quite a catalogue’, something he had ‘never seen for a man of his age’.“There is something unusual going on here,” Mr Dorrian added. “My client has been under the care of the mental health service since he was 9. Since he has turned 18, he has effectively been jettisoned. He was diagnosed with ADHD and ODD and alcohol is a new arrival on the scene. He is living in a very derelict fashion.”Judge Paul Kelly refused bail and remanded McAteer to Castlerea Prison to appear via video link on Monday. Judge Kelly directed medical assessment on the matter.Ballybofey man ‘incapable’ of complying with bail orders is remanded was last modified: April 9th, 2018 by Staff WriterShare 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:BallybofeyCastlereaDarius McAteerJudge Paul KellyletterkennyLetterkenny District CourtSergeant Lynchlast_img read more
