However, because of passion, the establishment of football clubs in the country continues to grow with several rising to top level football.Top tier clubs, including LISCR FC, Barrack Young Controllers, and Monrovia Club Breweries, had their own beginnings. Like those clubs, Divine FC have a beginning. Founded in 2008, the idea of establishing a youth football club was crafted by three young passionate footballers: Jallah Cordor, Edward Toetoe, and Joshua Colkahn.Their reasons for establishing the club is similar to many clubs, which is to get young males off the streets. They, therefore, decided to name it Divine FC in honor of their church, Divine Ministries, back then a newly-established church located in Fish Market.The club was financially supported by the founders and later broke down in 2010 due to finical constraints. Thankfully, things later returned to normal after one of the founders, Jallah Cordor, traveled to the United States. He had his team on his mind and decided to reawaken the club when he got the financial strength. Divine FC was later revamped in 2015 after the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) outbreak.Since then, Divine FC have become one of the popular football clubs in the Sinkor block, with several young people with great ambitions enjoying their stay at the club. Eric Mulbah, captain of the club, believes that his club is just a few steps away from rising to the top despite being a non-division team.“We have great players that are committed to the team. Although we are still a non-division club, we all feel happy playing for the club and sacrificing our own because we believe that we will one day enter the top division of Liberian football and make a difference,” Mulbah said.With talented players, the boys at Divine FC have become major contenders in organized tournaments in the Sinkor block. Since 2015, Divine FC, under the guidance of coach Joshua Colkahn, have lost two finals. They may not be well known for now, but Divine FC is a rising football club in Liberian football.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgGARDA killer Martin McDermott today failed in his appeal against a four-month prison sentence for attacking PSNI officers when he was re-arrested after his prison escape.Martin McDermott escaped from the low-security Loughan House open prison in County Cavan on March 15.He was eight months into a seven-year sentence for killing a garda when he rammed his car in County Donegal. The 26-year-old, whose address was given as c/o Maghaberry Prison, received a seven-year jail sentence in Letterkenny in July 2011 following his conviction for the manslaughter of Garda Gary McLoughlin.Garda McLoughlin died after the squad car he was driving was struck at speed by a car driven by McDermott at Burt in December 2009.A prosecution barrister told Judge Piers Grant that after his arrest in the Galliagh area of Derry following a cross-border search on the morning of March 22, McDermott pleaded guilty to assaulting three PSNI officers, resisting arrest and disorderly behaviour.The barrister said McDermott, who has 91 previous convictions, ran into on-coming traffic at Fern Road, climbed over a wall and ran off when he saw members of a police foot patrol.After a brief search, McDermott was caught and arrested. He was verbally abusive to the police officers, assaulted three of them and also damaged a set of police handcuffs.The barrister said following his arrest, McDermott was taken to Strand Road PSNI Station where he admitted the offences and apologised to police for his actions.He told them he had panicked and run off when he saw the police officer because of a bad childhood experience and because he suffers from post-traumatic stress.Appealing against the four-month sentence imposed by Derry Magistrates’ Court in March, barrister Sean Doherty, said the injuries sustained by the three police officers were minor and non-permanent. He also said the offences were not pre-mediated.Mr Doherty said McDermott had served the equivalent of a three-month sentence for the Derry offences.He also said that, as McDermott’s non-contested extradition hearing was due to take place in the High Court in Belfast on Friday, if McDermott was still a sentenced prisoner on that day, the hearing would not be able to go ahead.Refusing the appeal and affirming the four-month jail sentence, Judge Grant said that, although McDermott had a small record in Northern Ireland, his 91 previous convictions in the Republic of Ireland included manslaughter, other offences of violence, as well as threatening individuals.He said the decision of the district judge who jailed McDermott for four months was “quite right”.GARDA KILLER FAILS IN SENTENCE APPEAL HEARING – HANDOVER SET FOR FRIDAY was last modified: May 8th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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)last_img read more
