But it was difficult to overlook his influence as the Busmen took the competition by storm. Ceres methodically broke down and outworked the visitors in the first half, before standing its ground to preserve the clean sheet in the final 45 minutes.

Schrock repaid his faith with a performance for the ages in the second leg of the finals.The Filipino international’s work rate and vision sparked the Busmen to life, while goals from OJ Porteria and Manny Ott ensured they got the result. Porteria endured a difficult start to his career at Ceres, before the club owner went out of his way to advise him not to do “too much.” That talk allowed Porteria to settle nicely into the club, and the Busmen are slowly reaping the benefits of his rejuvenated play.The tactical acumen of Serbian coach Risto Vidakovic was also evident in the zonal finals as he deployed Schrock in midfield in lieu of the hobbling Bienve Marañon. Schrock wreaked havoc and the Busmen could have won convincingly if not for a slew of missed chances in the first half.Captains Martin Steuble and Carlie de Murga have been critical to the club’s success the past few years. And so is Ott, whose delightful free kick left Home goalkeeper Hassan Sunny no chance.“The players gave everything,” says Vidakovic. “It wasn’t easy when you miss so many chances because when that happens, you usually lose. But whoever came on gave their all for the club.”ADVERTISEMENT Marcosian mode: Duterte threatens to arrest water execs ‘one night’ Ceres Negros players and officials savor the moment after besting Home United, 3-2, on aggregate and clinching the AFC Asean Zone club title at Panaad Stadium.The man wearing the black sport shirt with the club’s yellow crest patched on his chest sat at the edge of the media tribune looking stoic as the seconds of second-half injury time ticked away.As the crowd at the jampacked Panaad Stadium in Bacolod City prepared to celebrate Ceres Negros’ historic AFC Cup Asean zone finals victory over Singapore’s Home United, club owner Leorey Yanson hardly showed any emotion. He tried to let the moment sink in, wrapping his head around the idea that the club he built five years ago was on the cusp of becoming the best team in the Southeast Asian region in the AFC Cup.ADVERTISEMENT The Panaad crowd has served as a sanctuary for the Busmen in the continental competition. They remain unbeaten in the AFC Cup at home. “We knew that our strength is at home,” says Ott. “Everybody had a clear focus for the game. Everybody still believed and the team showed strong character.”Schrock says he can’t help but be overwhelmed by the support that the club gets at home. “When you see the crowd here, you just want to give everything because you know how much this means to them,” says the former Bundesliga player who rejoined the team last April.Schrock recalls teammates breaking down in tears at the final whistle. “After the match, players were crying on the pitch because we left it all out there, the heart and the sweat. We put in the performance of our life in this final,” he says. “We have very good support here and we’re very proud to represent this city.”It’s still a long road ahead for Ceres Negros in the AFC Cup with Istiklol standing in its way in the interzone semifinals and North Korean club 4.25 and Bengaluru of India also in the hunt. The West Asia winner, which gets an outright finals spot, is also yet to be known.With performances like this against Home United, it was difficult to bet against the Busmen in their chase for continental glory. Perhaps only then can Yanson truly celebrate the greatness of his own creation.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next 787 earthquakes recorded in 24 hours due to restive Taal Volcano View commentslast_img read more

ARRANMORE ISLANDERS’ OUTRAGE OVER EIRCOM ‘SNUB’ ON BROADBAND

first_imgCommunications provider Eircom has been criticised by Arranmore Island Community Council for what has been suggested is a deliberate snub to the island community.Arranmore Island.The comments come following the news that many telephone exchanges across Donegal are to be upgraded to eFiber broadband providing many areas with high speed internet access.The telephone exchange on Arranmore Island however is not to be included in these upgrades which are to take place from April through to June 2015. Arranmore Island Community Council was set up under the guidance of Muintir Na Tire and consists of fifteen elected councillors which were voted in by the islands community in June 2014, an election which seen an unprecedented 85% turnout.The council now represent the people of Arranmore and work to bring improved services, development and jobs to the community.Arranmore Island is currently served with wireless broadband set up under the rural broadband scheme which has now been wound up and islanders say their broadband service is at best extremely intermittent and very slow when it is working. This they say makes it all but impossible to use as a reliable service especially with regards to business users.Spokesman for the island council Mr Jerry Early has said Eircom and the government have questions to answer with regards to their commitment on job creation. “Despite Eircoms claims that they are committed to ensuring everyone has access to superfast broadband their plans certainly don’t seem to mirror those claims” Mr Early said. “Indeed the government continue to make claims that they are for growth and job creation and yet their lack of commitment, and that of Eircom, to the Arranmore community of improving internet connection equal to that promised to most other communities in Donegal is stifling job creation.“We already know of one successful businessman who is ready to relocate his business from London to Arranmore Island, as well as a number of others who have also expressed an interest in relocating their businesses to the island from other countries, and the only thing preventing them is a lack of high-speed broadband.“Eircom and the government might well try to suggest that there is some logistical difficulties in providing such a service but the simple fact of the matter is that such provision is completely doable, the only thing lacking is will on their part. So a question needs to be asked of just how committed the government and those they work with such as Eircom are to creating jobs. For every month our connection to high-speed broadband moves further away so too do sustainable locally based jobs.”Speaking of the governments National Digital Strategy the spokesman for the Arranmore Island Community Council said the government are certainly not living up to their promises and would like the government to reaffirm the commitments made during a visit by Minister Pat Rabbitte TD to the island in June 2014.“Mr Rabbitte was on the island last year as part of the rollout of the National Digital Strategy and Action for Jobs last year which commits to seeing 2000 businesses trading online by the end of 2015. We think it is quite ironic that the very place he came to to make such claims is being put to the very back of the queue when it comes to a rollout of high-speed broadband. “It would seem the government see island communities such as Arranmore and Tory and indeed many other islands around the Irish coast as second class when they will use them as a PR stunt and then renege on their promises for job creation. Yet we have firm commitment of job creation here on Arranmore Island simply waiting to be acted upon on delivery of a service most other communities will be receiving this year whether there will be jobs for them or not.“As it stands we have been told that it could be the end of the decade before Arranmore Island receives the upgrade it needs under the current plan which is totally unacceptable. So we call upon the government and indeed Eircom to live up to their claims of digital infrastructure improvement and job creation and revisit theirs plans for Arranmore immediately, or we will be losing jobs, not creating them.”ARRANMORE ISLANDERS’ OUTRAGE OVER EIRCOM ‘SNUB’ ON BROADBAND was last modified: January 5th, 2015 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:Arranmore IslanddonegaleFibreEircomlast_img read more
