‘He showed tremendous bravery and courage’ – Harry Arter hailed for heroic Man United display

first_imgJunior Stanislas has hailed Bournemouth teammate Harry Arter as ‘remarkable’ for his performance against Manchester United.Arter started for the Cherries on Saturday despite the death of his newborn daughter just days earlier and was outstanding as he helped his side secure a famous 2-1 win.“He showed tremendous bravery and courage to go out there and play,” said Stanislas, speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“As soon as we heard the news, we were all around him, giving him calls and messages and supporting him in training as well. But to deliver a performance like that under the circumstances was remarkable.”Stanislas scored the opener against United direct from a corner as Bournemouth, winners over Chelsea earlier this month, picked up another prized Premier League scalp.On his goal, the ex-West Ham man admitted: “I never meant to score it. I meant to put it in the box but the manager said to try and get as much whip and pace on the ball as you can and thankfully it has gone in.”The win over United stretched newly-promoted Bournemouth’s unbeaten run to four matches and moved Eddie Howe’s side up to 14th.“We are going into every game confident now,” added Stanislas. “Morale within the group and staff is very good. We are enjoying it and looking forward to the next one.“We have got pace on the counter and can cause problems and upset teams.”last_img read more



first_imgThere could be two Dohertys running for Sinn FeinSinn Féin Deputies Pádraig MacLochlainn and Pearse Doherty have welcomed colleague Cllr Gary Doherty’s announcement that he is to seek party approval to contest the forthcoming general election.Speaking following an official statement released on Monday from Cllr Gary Doherty in which the Councillor confirmed his intention to contest party convention for his name to be added to the Sinn Féin ticket, both Deputies MacLochlainn and Doherty said that they would welcome Gary Doherty’s inclusion as Sinn Féin’s third candidate and have stated that they fully support his decision to contest the election.Deputies Doherty and MacLochlainn said in a joint statement: “Following this week’s announcement from our party colleague Cllr Gary Doherty that he is to go before party convention requesting that his name be added to the party ticket for the general election, subject to Ard Chomhairle approval, we are delighted to confirm that it is our intention to support Gary and to pledge our full support for his inclusion to the ballot as Sinn Féin’s third candidate here in the Donegal constituency.” “We both have known and have worked closely alongside Gary for many years and, throughout this time, he has proven himself to be an outstanding and unquestionably capable public representative.“There is no doubt that employing a three candidate strategy in Donegal- something which has yet to be approved by Sinn Féin Ard Chomhairle – will be incredibly challenging to successfully accomplish. However, our members across Donegal are energised and up for the challenge of getting three Sinn Féin TDs elected here in the Donegal constituency.“Therefore, we are proud to pledge our full backing for Gary’s candidacy and – as we eagerly await the decision of our national executive – we want to make it perfectly clear that Gary can depend on our full and unwavering support.”  DONEGAL TDs BACK THIRD CANDIDATE STRATEGY FOR ELECTION was last modified: October 14th, 2015 by John2Share 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) Tags:donegalGary DohertySinn FeinTDslast_img read more
