Swansea announce Shelvey signing

first_imgSwansea have completed the signing of Liverpool midfielder Jonjo Shelvey in a £5million four-year deal. Shelvey spent three years at Anfield after joining from Charlton in May 2010 for a fee of £1.7million. He made 69 appearances for the Reds, scoring seven goals. Swansea will pay the £5million up front with other add-ons accounting for a further £1million and the midfielder will now join the rest of Swansea’s squad for their pre-season tour of Holland. Chairman Huw Jenkins had spoken of the need to increase their quota of homegrown players and Shelvey, an established England Under-21 international who made his senior debut against San Marino last year, fits the bill. “We have got to make sure that the make-up of our squad is right,” Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins told the South Wales Echo. “And obviously part of that is making sure that we have so many British players in there. We have got to do that – there is no choice because they are the rules.” On Tuesday, the club signed midfielder Alejandro Pozuelo from Real Betis, who became the third Spaniard to sign in the past week after former Betis team-mate Jose Canas and Espanyol’s Jordi Amat joined. The club also brought in Gregor Zabret from Slovenian side NK Domzale and Cypriot Alex Gogic from Olympiakos on a free transfer, with both teenagers expected to go into the reserves initially. The 21-year-old had fallen down the pecking order at Anfield and when the two clubs agreed a fee on Tuesday a deal was concluded quickly. Shelvey travelled to south Wales on Wednesday morning and agreed personal terms and completed a medical. “Liverpool Football Club have confirmed Jonjo Shelvey has completed a transfer to Swansea City,” said a Reds statement. “Everybody at Liverpool FC would like to wish Jonjo all the best for the future.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

FIFA Confed Cup: Bravo Chile!

first_imgChile goalkeeper Claudio Bravo saved three successive penalties to give them a 3-0 shootout win over Portugal after their FIFA Confederations Cup semifinal had ended goalless last night in Russia.Just as it happened in 2015 and 2016 Copa America when the matches deadlocked after goalless regulation times against Argentina, Chile snapped victory from Portugal to become kings of shoot out last night. Bravo stopped Portugal’s first three spot kicks from Ricardo Quaresma, Joao Moutinho and Nani while Chile converted their first three kicks to win the clash of South American and European champions. Arturo Vidal, Charles Aranguiz and Alexis Sanchez scored all Chile’s three goals.The result was justice for Chile after they hit the woodwork with two successive shots in the dying seconds of extra time.There was also controversy shortly before that when Chile winger Alexis Sanchez went down in the box under a Jose Fonte tackle but the referee did not consult the Video Assistant Referees (VARs), even though contact seemed to be made.Chile is to play the winner of the second semi final tonight between Germany and Mexico on Sunday.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Tom Grimm plays integral role as short-stick defensive midfielder after being recruited as offensive weapon

first_img Published on March 31, 2015 at 11:29 pm Contact Matt: mcschnei@syr.edu | @matt_schneidman Facebook Twitter Google+ Tom Grimm wanted to be next.He grew up idolizing Mike Powell, a fellow product of Carthage (New York) High School and a four-time first-team All-American and NCAA attack of the year at Syracuse.“I think it was every little kid’s dream from Carthage, growing up in that program,” Grimm said. “They want to be the next Mikey Powell.”Grimm was rated the No. 7 attack and No. 15 overall player in the high school Class of 2011 by Inside Lacrosse. He was recruited by SU to be an offensive weapon, but that never materialized since the Orange’s offense was crowded and Grimm just wanted to get on the field.Now, the junior short-stick defensive midfielder has embraced his less glamorous role. Grimm is given more freedom as a defensive midfielder since he comes from a primarily offensive background, and takes significant stock in the piece he fits to the puzzle for No. 2 Syracuse (7-1, 2-1 Atlantic Coast).AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“He’s definitely accepted it,” assistant coach Lelan Rogers said. “Once they buy into that role and they understand it, their opportunity to get some goals here and there and just play more comes maybe through the defensive side of the field.”When Grimm first came to Syracuse, he wasn’t physically ready. He arrived weighing only 155 pounds and redshirted his first year.He put on 20 pounds that year, crediting his dining hall meal swipes and open buffet 2–3 times each day to his weight gain. In high school Grimm didn’t lift weights at all, he said, so having a structured program at Syracuse helped as well.But a year passed, the Orange’s midfield and attack were still crowded and Grimm just wanted to step on the field.“So they said my best bet would probably be to switch to defensive middie,” Grimm said.At Carthage, Grimm played some long-pole midfield in addition to attack, Rogers said. That eased the transition to more of a defensive-minded player since he already had some of those philosophies ingrained.Grimm’s older brother, Jamie, played defense and his oldest brother, Rob, was on offense. The youngest of the three said he got the best of both worlds, which basically defines the role he has now.“What everyone wants is a two-way middie,” Rogers said. “And Tom can do both. We could leave him out there offensively if we wanted to.”Rogers added that the secret to finding the best defensive midfielders is finding ones who take it to heart when they get beat one-on-one. From years of being beat in basketball, football and video games by his older brothers, and even seeing video game controllers break in competition, Grimm has molded himself into exactly what Syracuse is looking for at the position. “I’m very competitive; if they beat me, you get upset, you get mad about it,” Grimm said of his brothers. “That’s the same thing with defense, if a guy beats you, you take it personally, it’s a one-on-one battle.”And now that Grimm has embraced the nitty-gritty position he’s found himself at, he’s no longer the offensive machine that had 245 goals and 245 assists in high school. His first goal just came a month ago against Virginia, and that was almost 32 games into his career.“It felt like high school all over again,” Grimm joked.He knows it’s not a position that produces goals and assists. He knows that his job is to sprint the length of the field. And he knows not much about his role is flashy.Grimm even smiled and said he trusts his attacks way more than himself to shoot the ball, so he doesn’t even tend to revert to a part of his game that once defined him.But for him, that’s all right.“If anything, I think he’s embraced the role,” head coach John Desko said. “I just think he’s playing his best lacrosse of his career right now.” Commentslast_img read more

Sierra Shafer gets unexpected chance to walk on as backup goalkeeper for SU

first_imgDeciding between sports and academics was the hardest decision Sierra Shafer had to make. The three-sport high school athlete had been accepted into Syracuse’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, but the Orange’s coaching staff never responded when she sent in her highlight tape. She would have been able to play at any of the other schools she was accepted into.Shafer eventually chose Syracuse, eliminating her chance to play at the collegiate level. She joined clubs and reported for Citrus TV. She even won the N. James Polney Award, which is given to Newhouse’s freshman of the year. Even without soccer in her life, Shafer was was involved at SU.But the summer in between her freshman and sophomore years, she received a chance to play soccer at SU.“I remember it like it was yesterday,” Shafer said of when she was invited for a tryout. “I woke up one morning and was checking my phone and saw I had an e-mail from (assistant coach) Neal Bhattacharjee … I literally didn’t believe it. I had to read it 10 times.”Shafer impressed in tryouts and made the team. Ever since, she has been the third-string goalie for SU. Though she is behind all-Atlantic Coast Conference goalie Courtney Brosnan, the junior has learned from goalie specialist and head coach Phil Wheddon.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe team was short on goalies and the coaching staff had remembered Shafer’s video from her application.Shafer woke her mom up with the news, who sprang out of bed in shock. She went to work for her job at SU Athletics later that morning and discussed it with her boss, Sue Edson, who recommended taking advantage of the offer.“Within a week, it was everything from signing papers (to) getting NCAA stuff in, going through compliance and within a week I was just on the team,” Shafer said. “It was the craziest experience of my life.”Once the frenzy of joining the team died down, Shafer began to acknowledge her place on the team. She didn’t expect to overtake Brosnan, one of her closest friends and Syracuse’s starting keeper.But Shafer was rapidly improving on the field with help from Wheddon, who has coached with both the men’s and women’s U.S. National Team programs. Wheddon took extra care of the goalies, Shafer said.“Obviously she was good from the start,” Brosnan said, “but working with (Wheddon) who is one of the best goalie coaches around, and she’s definitely raising the bar.”Despite improving, Shafer still only joins the team for home games. She doesn’t get time on the field, but recognizes how she can contribute.“My goal is to travel with the team and to influence people in a way that I don’t have to be on the field,” Shafer said. “but I can cheer them on and encourage them and work off the field.” Comments Published on October 7, 2015 at 10:32 pm Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
