Mackinson backs KC to break title drought

first_img MORE THAN A MIDFIELDER Mackison said he is determined to be more than a midfielder who scores goals, however, but wants to assist his team in winning games. “I promised my coach that I want to score 20 or more goals this season and give as many assists as possible to help the team,” he said. “We will just continue to do the good work and don’t get complacent and keep on working hard.” Asked about his team’s title chances, he said: “Definitely, KC can win this year. I am positive I can continue scoring and help to lead the way,” he outlined. Averaging almost two goals per game so far, the player will be hoping to lead his team again with a win over Ascot High when KC play them at the National Stadium at 3 p.m. today. “I am doing good so far, we just need to keep training hard and continue the good work and always remain focus and calm and follow the coach’s instructions,” he stressed. Kingston College (KC) attacking midfielder, Rashawn Mackison, is backing himself to score around 20 goals and provide many assists this season’s ISSA/FLOW Manning Cup football campaign, as he hopes to lead the ‘Purples’ to a long-awaited Manning Cup title. The quiet, but skillful player dictates KC’s plays and orchestrates their attack from the centre of the park each game. Courtesy of Mackison, a man of the match on the three occasions that KC have won, he has netted seven times, despite missing two penalties against Denham Town. He scored four goals in that game, one in the St Mary’s College opener and two against Papine High, last Friday. “This season, I trained a lot harder in pre-season, I am a lot older now and I have more experience,” he noted of improvements that have brought more success.last_img read more

Zlatan, Ronaldo and Tevez in surprising moves! You won’t believe some of these endorsements

first_imgDuring his illustrious career, Ronaldinho has graced a fair number of global brands, from EA Sports’ FIFA series to Coca-Cola.  Since returning to Brazil, however, his endorsements have taken a less standard route, with the star appearing on the packaging of ‘Sex Free’ condoms during his stint with Atlético Mineiro.Kevin Keegan: Sugar PuffsFrom Jackie Milburn to Alan Shearer, Newcastle United have had their fair share of legendary No. 9s. For some reason, however, the Honey Monster – who scored an admittedly fictional winner for Kevin Keegan’s side at Wembley in 1996 – doesn’t get nearly as much credit as his peers.Carlos Tevez: Cartoon NetworkAs if you couldn’t tell from his goal celebrations, Carloz Tevez is quite the dancer. In fact, he’s so good Cartoon Network even poached him to advertise for the Latin American region of their children’s programming. Jose Mourinho: His Coat and Scarf 1 Sideline fashion isn’t entirely unheard of, but a manager actually being endorsed for what they wear on the bench is a new development. For Jose Mourinho, that means sticking to his trademark coat and scarf whatever the weather according to The Telegraph, even when his counterparts opt for the more sensible polo shirt.Pat Jennings: Oil FiltersWho do you turn to when you want to advertise oil filters? Ah, yes, world-class goalkeepers like Pat Jennings, that’s who. It’s hard to tell exactly what UniPart or Jennings saw in this partnership, but at least we have this timeless footage of the former Spurs and Arsenal stopper doing what he did best while dressed as an oil filter.Bobby Moore: The Pub IndustryThere are plenty of reasons to view Bobby Moore as a football hero, but his support of the pub industry shouldn’t go overlooked alongside his 1966 World Cup heroics. He part-owned a few pubs of his own after his playing career, and is seen here encouraging viewers to ”look in at the local”. Admittedly, though, it is a bit weird to see someone turning up to their local pub in a suit and tie. Different times.Pele: Erectile DysfunctionGot erection problems? Talk to your doctor. Pele would. The Brazil icon has been a long-time supporter of Pfizer’s Viagra products as part of his promotion of men’s health awareness. Having won league titles in four different countries, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is used to the sweet smell of success, but it was still something of a surprise to hear that the Swede is launching his own fragance range.Due to launch, fittingly, in August as the new season kicks off, only time will tell – or smell – whether the Paris Saint-Germain striker’s foray into the world of perfume is as successful as his forays into the penalty box.But Ibrahimovic is merely following in the footsteps of a long line of unlikely footballer endorsements, some of which make Eau de Zlatan seem positively sensible.Cristiano Ronaldo: Facial FitnessEver wondered how Cristiano Ronaldo maintains his good looks? It appears it’s all thanks to this obscure Japanese facial fitness device… not that we have any idea how it works. According to the Japan Times, the Real Madrid star was the “only person“ beauty company MTC thought could accurately represent their product.Ronaldinho: Condomscenter_img 1 1last_img read more
