Development Trust To Launch ‘Support Stranraer’ Campaign

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInStranraer Development Trust is set to launch a campaign to encourage people to Support Stranraer after being awarded funding from the ‘Towns and Business Improvement Districts Resilience and Recovery Fund’ which was financed by the Scottish Government and administered by Scotland’s Towns Partnership.Stranraer Development Trust’s application was supported by Dumfries & Galloway Council which resulted in them being awarded £12,500 to develop local activity to tie in with the national “Scotland Loves Local” campaign. The Trust plan to launch the Support Stranraer campaign in the next few weeks. The aim of the campaign is to build back confidence in the community by encouraging local people to support each other and to feel confident enjoying local facilities and buying from local businesses. The campaign will also invite people and local businesses to love local and invest in each other’s success by encouraging spend within the local community The campaign will include a range of marketing materials which will be made available to local businesses, and a series of promotional videos which are being produced by local film creator Mark Simpson of Scarlett Visuals.Allan Jenkins of Stranraer Development Trust said:“We wanted our local campaign to be about more than shopping locally, because being part of a community is about more than just where you shop. The people of Stranraer and the surrounding areas were absolute stars during lockdown, and the way our folk rallied round to look after each other and keep each other safe during lockdown is something we should all be rightly proud of.“The Support Stranraer campaign is about remembering that community spirit as we move into the autumn and winter months. It’s about reminding ourselves how lucky we are to live here, showcasing everything our town has to offer and encouraging each other to support the local shops, cafes, activity providers, restaurants, sports facilities and essential services that keep our town going and support so many local jobs. We are delighted to have been awarded funding from this covid recovery fund, and we are looking forward to launching this new campaign very soon.” Chairman of Stranraer Development Trust Romano Petrucci said:“We have come a long way over the past few years in changing the story of Stranraer, particularly through our Oyster Festival which is sorely missed this year. Our festival shows that when the people and businesses of Stranraer pull together we can achieve amazing things. That’s the thinking behind this campaign. We will work together to create a positive story of economic recovery from covid, and then we’ll share that story with the world.” The Support Stranraer campaign will launch in late-September. Local businesses who want to take part are encouraged to contact Stranraer Development Trust on info@stranraerdevelopmenttrust.co.uk for more information.last_img read more

Why Seth Rollins Needs To Turn Heel To Save Monday Night Raw

first_imgMonday Night Raw is at a serious lack of top heels right now. Sure, they have Bray Wyatt and The Miz.  But The Miz cannot do it by himself and Bray Wyatt is increasingly getting more cheered then booed.Add to that fact that their top two “Heels” Braun Strowman is hurt, and Brock Lesnar is a part timer, and they are starting to develop a real issue at the top.One could say that Samoa Joe could fill that void, but quite honestly he hasn’t been on the main roster long enough to have that feel deserved or even legitimate.One answer is clear, it needs to be a former Shield Member, and not the one everyone wants it to be either.While Roman Reigns remains hated by fans, he has become a polarizing figure in the aspect that the WWE continues to push him as a face, (good guy). If they truly want to pull the ultimate swerve and make the exact right decision.The answer is clear, Seth Rollins!It worked once before, and it would work again. Fans are slowly starting to build up hope and hype about a possible Shield re-union.  Rollins is popular and seems to be over the injury bug and ready to lead once again.  It is extremely reminiscent of HHH when he came back from quad injury in 2002.  Let them come back from injury as a face, have a brief title run, get everyone’s hopes up, and then strike!If you recall, this worked perfectly for HHH as he went from the Summer of 2002 – Summer of 2006 as the top “Bad Guy” on the roster. It was a simple formula that worked brilliantly!  You take a wrestler who was hated, tease the fans for a few months who badly, secretly, wanted to cheer for him, then pull the rug out.  This creates instant heat!  We saw it with the Rock in 1998.  Heck, we even saw it as far back as Mr. Wonderful in 86 and Macho Man in 89.  It works!To make things even juicer, they need to do it EXACTLY like they did last time. Fans would never expect and EXACT repeat of last time.  And I mean exact!Have the Shield re-unite for one night, maybe even a pay per view such as Summerslam. Then after the match, same formula, Rollins takes a chair to the back of Ambrose and Reigns.It is a sure fire recipe for instant heat!The WWE creative team takes a lot of heat for not being creative enough, and relying on the same formulas to get guys over. This is the one time in which they don’t even need to be creative or think outside of the box.Ironically enough by doing the same thing as last time, it will generate more heat than any other outside of the box idea.This move would also create instant feuds that would be red hot. A heel Rollins versus Finn Balor would be a main event anywhere in the country.  Fans have been craving that one on one rematch of their epic main event from SummerSlam last year.  Not to mention, the natural feud that would be waiting once again with former allies Reigns and Ambrose.Agree or Disagree with this notion? Feel free to let me know in the comment section below, or on twitter @VinceTheAuthor Vince McKee Related TopicsDean AmbroseSamoa JoeSeth RollinsThe SheildWWEWWE RAWlast_img read more

Last time, we were happy to be there and this time, we’re going to try to play to the end.”The Tigers beat Arizona in the Super Regionals this weekend to clinch their spot at Oklahoma City, where LSU will face Auburn in the first round of the tournament on Thursday at 1:30 p.m.Auburn beat UL Lafayette in two wild games in their Super Regional to make its first appearance in the WCWS with a record of 54-9.LSU lost two of three games against Auburn earlier this month, losing 2-1 on May 1 and 1-0 on May 2 in two tight games. The Tigers did bounce back with a 7-1 win on May 3.And if LSU wins or loses to Auburn, the Tigers will see another SEC team in either Tennessee or defending national champ and top-seeded Florida.LSU took two of three against the Gators in Gainesville in March and won two games in Knoxville over the Lady Vols in April. But Tennessee knocked the Tigers out of the SEC tournament on May 7, beating LSU 7-5.“I’m not feeling confident against anyone from the SEC, they’re all so talented,” Torina said. “But it’s so exciting to see how strong our league is and see the representation in the Women’s College World Series. It truly shows the gauntlet this team has been through.”LSU will leave for Oklahoma on Tuesday morning and practice on Wednesday morning.“This team’s goal is not just to get to the Women’s College World Series, their goal is to win it,” Torina said. “And we’re going to do everything this week to try to do that.” Catcher Kellsi Kloss and pitcher Carley Hoover show their excitement at qualifying for the Women’s College World Series.Catcher Kellsi Kloss and pitcher Carley Hoover show their excitement at qualifying for the Women’s College World Series.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration Time 0:00Loaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%0:00 Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVERemaining Time -0:00 Playback Rate1ChaptersChaptersdescriptions off, selectedDescriptionssubtitles off, selectedSubtitlescaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedCaptionsAudio TrackFullscreenThis is a modal window.

Five things you might not know about Chelsea prospect Hudson-Odoi

first_imgEmbed from Getty ImagesThe performances of teenager Callum Hudson-Odoi have been a major plus for Chelsea during pre-season.He has been involved in every one of the Blues’ friendlies and boss Maurizio Sarri has said he will part of Chelsea’s first-team squad for the coming season. AdChoices广告Here are five things you might not know about the 17-year-old forward.World at his feetWhile Hudson-Odoi’s strong pre-season performances may have come as a surprise to the casual observer, the forward showed what he was all about last year.He laid on two assists in the final of the Under-17s World Cup in India as England recovered from two goals down to hammer Spain 5-2.Having shown glimpses of his promise throughout the tournament, he has followed that up this summer and looks set to be in and around the Chelsea first team.Trophy-winning teenAlthough he is still over three months shy of turning 18, Hudson-Odoi is already no stranger to collecting silverware.He played a pivotal role as Chelsea’s academy dominated youth-level football last season and has already lifted two FA Youth Cups and the Under-18 Premier League title.Add to that his winners’ medal as part of England’s Under-17 World Cup squad and it appears Hudson-Odoi has a taste for success. Brotherly loveHudson-Odoi’s older brother Bradley is also plying his trade as a footballer and joined National League South outfit Wealdstone this summer.Unlike his younger sibling, 29-year-old Bradley was born in Ghana but has never represented his country of birth.Bradley was signed to the academy at Fulham but never made the step up to the first team at Craven Cottage and the striker has moved around non-League football since.Father’s footstepsAs well as his brother, Hudson-Odoi’s father was also a professional footballer.Bismark Odoi turned out for Hearts of Oak in his native Ghana and operated as a midfielder for the Accra-based side.Hudson-Odoi may be the latest in his family to emerge onto the scene but there is every possibility he will become the most recognised member of the clan.‘Little bro’Hudson-Odoi’s pre-season form may have drawn plenty of praise – but one former Chelsea player was already well aware of his talent.Michael Essien, a Ghana international who won two Premier League titles and the Champions League while at Stamford Bridge, is a big fan of the new Blues youngster.He took to Instagram following England’s Under-17 World Cup success to congratulate Hudson-Odoi, calling him “little bro”.

first_imgThe Portuguese international was a starter in both games his national team played. He first featured in the 1-1 draw against Croatia, and last night, for the Nations League, he played the 90 minutes in the 1-0 win over Italy.Neves spoke to the local press after the victory, and said he was satisfied with his latest appearances for Portugal:“All players are prepared to play. I was the choice in these two games and it is up to Mr. Fernando Santos to make the decision. I’m one more to help and when I’m called I’ll do my best, as I’ve done. I liked the games I played and now it’s up to me to improve,” said Neves.Embed from Getty ImagesThe player was much praised by local newspapers for the performance against Italy. Newspaper O Jogo says he has an ‘excellent positional sense’ and that’s why he’s the ‘team’s pendulum’.
