Congrats 'Team Success'

The Rudolph Speid-led 'Team Speid', which lost at the elections on Saturday to the Stewart Stephenson-led 'Team Success', has congratulated their opponents via a release. The new administration will lead the Kingston and St Andrew Football Association (KSAFA) executive for the next two years.

"Congratulations to 'Team Success' on its successful campaign for the leadership of the Kingston and St Andrew Football Association (KSAFA). I would like to express my sincere thank you to all for participating in the KSAFA biennial elections held on Saturday, August 2, 2014," the release stated.

"Though 'Team Speid' was not elected, this will not change the passions, abilities, intentions, or dreams we hold for the beautiful game of football. We remain committed and pledge our continued support to the incoming team as they strive to always make KSAFA number one.

"Let us all remain focused and further promote solidarity for KSAFA's optimum performance as an exemplary governing body.

"Yours in the beautiful game," it concluded.


Streaker discharged

Hamilton, Bermuda (CMC):A member of the Bermuda national rugby team who streaked naked across a popular beach while drunk after losing a bet has received a ticking-off from the island's top magistrate.

Tom Moroney, a 31-year-old Englishman who has been involved in coaching the island's Under-19 rugby team, was full of remorse when he appeared before Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner on Monday, pleading guilty to indecent exposure last Thursday on the first day of a two-day national holiday.

Warner told Moroney the maximum penalty for the offence is 12 months in jail, but gave him a conditional discharge.

Prosecutor Garrett Byrne told Magistrates' Court Moroney was seen streaking across crowded Somerset Long Bay beach into the water with a drink in one hand and his private parts in the other.

He then swam to a boat offshore and was later arrested in Dockyard.

The court heard that Moroney had been drinking heavily with friends and committed the offence after losing a bet.
