Western Bureau:Arnett Gardens FC swept into third place in the Red Stripe Premier League, on the back of a Marcelino Blackburn double at the Frome Sports Complex yesterday.The defending champions came from behind to clip Reno 2-1 after Tyshan Hill had fired Reno into the lead in the 21st minute. Blackburn levelled the score with a header in the 47th minute then struck again in added time with a dipping left-footed free kick.The victory takes them to third in the table, joining Humble Lion on 26 points, and left the home team in mid-table with 22 points.”I am very pleased with the win, because we have been having trouble scoring lately. These are two wonderful goals from Blackburn, and the team definitely deserves the win,” stated Arnett Gardens coach Jerome Waite.The result has left Reno coach Michael Graham struggling for words, as he was clearly upset.”This was a game we should have won, but for the lack of concentration in the second half,” Graham said.”After scoring first, we were looking to get all three points but we faltered and they scored an unfortunate goal,” he said.
In a recent visit to the YMCA in South Ealing, London, earlier this week for an event on mental health issues that young people face in society today, Prince Harry had some fighting words for gamers. Harry had some harsh words for gamers and specifically Fortnite where he said: “That game shouldn’t be allowed. Where is the benefit of having it in your household? It’s created to addict, an addiction to keep you in front of a computer for as long as possible. It’s so irresponsible”. He added: “It’s like waiting for the damage to be done and kids turning up on your doorsteps and families being broken down”. I don’t know if it’s just me or not, but I find Prince Harry’s comments a bit out of place. He grew up in a not-so-standard household being a prince, living with the Queen of England. I mean, come on. He wouldn’t have gotten home from school and been allowed to play a few hours of games each night, or after his chores. Somehow he thinks he has an idea, like plenty of other influential people (celebrities, politicians, etc) want to come in and blame games for everything. Of course there are some that get addicted to games as they’re made to be like that, but there’s plenty of worse things to be addicted to. If there’s one piece of advice I’ve given to friends in similar situations (this story hits very close to home for me) is this advice I’ve said to concerned parents in my life: wouldn’t you rather your child be in your home, in your walls, safe at night playing some video games rather than walking the street?
