They’ll travel to Dungloe confident they can secure a win that would see them advance to the last eight.Killybegs didn’t win a single league game in Division One last year but that didn’t stop them reaching the Donegal SFC final last season.With home advantage and the star quality of Adrian Hanlon and Adrian Sweeney at their disposal, Tony Boyle will be confident his side has enough firepower to get the win they badly need.Killybegs have proved they’ve got fantastic championship pedigree and with Hugh McFadden, Christopher Murrin and Brendan McGuire in their ranks they’ll be confident of getting the win.VERDICT – DUNGLOE DONEGAL SFC PREVIEW: DUNGLOE AND KILLYBEGS FACE-OFF IN WINNER TAKES ALL CLASH was last modified: October 10th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare 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:Donegal SFCDonegal SFC PreviewdungloeGAAKillybegsnewsSportlast_img read more

Koshy takes over from Batra as Hockey India president

first_imgNew Delhi, Nov 25 (PTI) Mariamma Koshy has taken charge of Hockey India (HI) as president with immediate effect, replacing Narinder Dhruv Batra who was recently elected as the first ever non European chief of the sports governing body FIH. HI announced that Koshy will head the national body in the 41st Hockey India Executive Board meeting held today. HI Secretary General, Mohd. Mushtaque Ahmad, has now taken over as the chairman of the Hockey India League Governing Board. These decisions have come in the light of Batra stepping down from his position due to his historic election in the (FIH). Batra could not hold both the posts at HI and FIH, thus he stepped down. Todays decisions will require ratification in the Hockey India Congress to be held soon. Batra served as HI secretary general from 2010 to 2014 and was president since 2014. He also resigned from his post as chairman of the Hockey India League. Speaking on the development, Batra said, “it gives me a great sense of achievement to see the independent development of Hockey India as a governing body for the sport. “The organisation has been and will continue to be run by professionals headed by CEO Elena Norman and having Mariamma Koshy as its new president, I am sure we will reach new heights of success in popularising the sport in India as I take on the mantle to do the same on a global level.” Earlier this month, Batra made history after becoming the the first Indian and fifteenth president of FIH.
