Advertisement Howard Lake | 24 January 2003 | News The journal will be edited by Susan Forrester with former Society Guardian journalist Nicola Hill as Deputy Editor. Information from DSC researchers will be supplemented by contributions from leading funders and fundraisers. Each issue of Funding for Change will feature a special section on newly identified sources of support and the policy changes of top funders.Published in January, April, July and October, the journal will consist of 32 pages in A4 format. Issue one will be launched at Charityfair 2003 in April 2003. Annual subscriptions will cost £40 to voluntary and community organisations and £50 to statutory and commercial organisations. Existing subscribers to either publication will be eligible for four issues of Funding for Change for the price of three, but will need to contact the Directory of Social Change for details.Charities are now facing a growing number of funding information services, many of them covering similar news items. As well as new online services such as access-funds.co.uk, there have been recent paper publications such as ‘Funding Report’ from Caritasdata and ‘External Funding Bulletin.’ If they cover different information, then such a multitude of sources are welcome. Duplication of mterial though will simply take up fundraisers’ time unnecessarily. In DSC’s favour, they are rationalising their journals and reducing the total number in the marketplace by one.UK Fundraising looks forward to covering a story where two commercial funding information providers collaborate or merge to provide a better service for fundraisers and grantseekers.

Dattaku, Trappco Shine in Low Cup

first_img2020 GTBANK LAGOS POLO *Battles for Majekodunmi Cup to begin todayThe final week of the 2020 GTBank Lagos International Polo Tournament galloped off on a blistering note yesterday with Lagos Dattaku claiming a 7 ½ – 6 win over Lagos GDF in the Low Cup. Kaduna Trappco also out galloped Lagos Al-Dusar 6 – 5 ½ in another Low Cup game with Aliyu Tijani’s six-touch 200 yards solo goal at the last seconds of the first chukka drawing an all-round applause from the crowd.Dattaku, formed by Hadi Mutallab, Danjuma Kubarachi, Glory Mbano and Aminu Ahmed started on a half a goal advantage due to their handicap inferiority and they extended their lead to 2 ½ goals with Ahmed scoring twice in the first chukka.Lagos GDF Global which featured Kabiru Saidu, Ahmadu Umar, Funsho George and Abdulahi Jugunu laboured all through to keep in touch with hitman Umar reducing the deficit by converting a 60 yard penalty.Cascalito, as the former groomer from Ibadan Polo Club is fondly called, scored two more goals to put GDF on the lead heading to the penultimate third chukka.Jugunu kept GDF further in front scoring in the third chukka but the game was turned around by Mbano and Kubarachi – the latter scoring from a near-impossible angle despite challenge by Umar for. 4 ¼ – 4 lead.Dattaku patron Mutallab then converted a 40 yard penalty to widen the lead going to the last chukka. Kubarachi scored two quick-fire goals at the start of the closing chukka to put the game to bed rendering Umar and Saidu’s goals which were GDF’s fifth and sixth inconsequential.There are four matches on the schedule for today with the Majekodunmi Cup tie between Leighton Kings and Keffi Ponys/Western Bet the pick of the pack.The Kings powered by Bowale Jolaosho are a +21 handicap team, the highest in the history of polo in Nigeria are billed to commence the match on a four-year goal deficit due to their handicap rating.Other matches will see Seyi Tinubu-financed Lagos STL confront Kano H-Hago; Kaduna Trappco face Lagos Al-Dusar while Kano Nasariyya tussle with Lagos Rojo.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

GIVING IT AWAY: Syracuse’s futility at faceoff X costs Orange in 11-10 loss to Villanova

first_img Published on March 23, 2013 at 9:00 pm Contact David: [email protected] | @DBWilson2 VILLANOVA, Pa. — Every time Thomas Croonquist settled in at the faceoff X, the result seemed predetermined. No matter what Syracuse countered with — the experience of faceoff staple Chris Daddio, the talent of freshman Brendan Conroy, or the brute strength of All-American defender Brian Megill — the result was always the same.The Villanova faceoff man pushed the ball backward to himself. He knocked it sideways to his wings. Even when Syracuse’s myriad of backup plans pushed the ball back to their side of the field, Croonquist simply climbed over top to come away another faceoff win.“We just didn’t have an answer for him,” SU head coach John Desko said. “I thought we had a couple opportunities that Conroy had, but he was just a little quicker to get to the ball.”Croonquist won an astonishing 22-of-24 faceoff attempts—and all 13 in the second half—embarrassing the Orange at the X and igniting celebration after celebration from the 2,547 that witnessed Croonquist’s remarkable feat. It meant an incredible dearth of possession time for Syracuse (5-2, 2-1 Big East) as the Wildcats (2-5, 1-0) stunned the No. 4 Orange 11-10 at Villanova Stadium.A 3-0 run in the second quarter seemed poised to send SU into the half in control. But Croonquist rebounded from one of Daddio’s few faceoff wins – he won just 2-of-14 – with a victory of his own leading to a quick VU goal. Another win led to another Wildcat goal, this time with just 17 seconds remaining in the half to cut the lead to one.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“He got an early start and he’s a good faceoff kid, but his wings were amazing. We were having trouble with our wings getting help,” Daddio said. “The one’s that I did win in the first half I felt like I popped the ball up, and turned around and we were just getting beat to the ball. We’ve just got a lot of work.”Daddio and Croonquist stepped up to the faceoff X once again and for the third time on the day Syracuse’s faceoff man was whistled for a violation. This time a delay of game penalty came with it.“We’re kind of back to where we were last year with this game of faceoffs,” Daddio said, “and I know everyone’s getting frustrated with not having as many possessions as we usually have.”SU changed it up and Conroy took the first draw of the second half. He nearly exhibited immediate success after jamming Croonquist and popping the ball backward. But Croonquist was quicker to the ball and Villanova was back on the attack.Conroy finished the day 0-for-8.“You try not to get discouraged because we’re a team, and we’re going to back everyone up no matter what happens,” said Megill, who lost both faceoffs he attempted, “but just seeing him come out the front all the time, it kind of gets frustrating after a while.”The Wildcats methodically built their comeback riding the coattails of Croonquist’s success at the X.With VU down three once again in the third quarter, Croonquist won another faceoff. Villanova midfielder Jimmy Wyatt drew a crosscheck penalty and Villanova capitalized with a goal. Less than a minute later, SU’s lead was cut one after another Croonquist win and Tim Mulrenan goal.Despite the struggles at the X, Syracuse still maintained a lead late into the fourth quarter, but when Derek Maltz was denied on the doorstep with less than four minutes remaining, the Wildcats had life. Jack Rice scored on the other end with 2:51 remaining to knot the game at 10.Again standing at the X, Croonquist appeared unbeatable. VU had stormed back from a pair of three-goal deficits and was on the verge of pulling the upset. Though a faceoff was still to be taken, the result was predetermined.Croonquist won another draw and floated a pass downfield to Mulrenan standing alone along the crease. Mulrenan turned and fired from close range. There was nothing Dominic Lamolinara could do. Too often Syracuse was on its heels and too often Lamolinara was peppered with shots.Fittingly, Croonquist helped deliver the fatal blow.“He’s good at what he did,” Daddio said. “He got the best of me and the best of all of us. He had a good night.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
