Arnett plan to keep Waterhouse down

first_imgReigning Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) champions, Arnett Gardens FC, are planning to keep Waterhouse on the canvas when both teams meet in the secondpreliminary stage at Waterhouse Stadium tomorrow.Arnett are currently in third position on 32 points, while Waterhouse are at the bottom on 15 points after 18 games in the 12-team league.With a gap of 17 points, Arnett Gardens have no intention of giving Waterhouse a chance to crawl up from last position.As far as the man in charge of the ‘Junglists’ is concerned, it is simply a case of, ‘when a man is down, keep him down’.”We will try to keep them down as they are a dangerous team,” coach of Arnett Gardens, Jerome ‘Jerry’ Waite told The Gleaner at the RSPL weekly press conference at Red Stripe last Thursday.”In previous games, Waterhouse dominated Arnett. We beat them in the first round and we are looking forward to continue this on Sunday,” added Waite, who guided Arnett to three national titles.Arnett will be without hard-tackling midfielder Renae Lloyd, as well as Damari Deacon due to red cards issued in their encounter against Tivoli Gardens two weeks ago, but Waite remains confident that the team will leave Drewsland with a positive result.”Lloyd will be a loss, but if you notice this season started without Renae Lloyd, the other player (Jason Moore), who will fill the slot had been doing well before Lloyd returned to the team,” the veteran coach noted before sharing his anticipation of the game.”Yes, you always have to look forward to a clash of this magnitude, despite where the teams are in the standings. And, it is always a fierce rivalry. We will not underestimate Waterhouse, although they are having a bad season, so far,” Waite maintained.”In their last game, they scored four goals but gave up the same, so there are loopholes in their defensive system, which we aim to exploit. We (Arnett) have won three games in a row and are aiming at four straight,” he concluded.last_img read more

Fieri told Times LIVE before the Pretoria opening that guests would enjoy only the best “real deal, scratch-made food, killer cocktails and a rocking good time”.The menu includes, of course, his legendary signature dish, the Bacon Mac-N-Cheese Burger.While not for the faint-hearted nor health-conscious, Fieri’s award-winning reputation for, as he calls it, “not fast food, but good food served quickly”, guarantees healthy portions served with side orders of classiness and value-for-money.“South Africans work hard for their money,” he told Times LIVE. “They deserve to be able to take their family out for good food and a good time. We’re bringing the heat and excitement of Flavourtown but at local market prices so it’s accessible to everyone.”And Fieri hasn’t forgotten to include some local flavour in his offerings.“If you’re going to do South Africa, you got to have some scratch-made rubbed and sauced peri-peri chicken wings, right? You’re not going to find grilled springbok loin from Mokopane in New York City but after trying it in South Africa, I may have to change that.”Celebrity foodie Guy Fieri, known for his unusual take on guilty pleasure eating, opened a new restaurant in the Menlyn Maine shopping centre in Pretoria on 1 April 2017.
