During the training the screams of mind did not stop from the stands, with some chants for the players. But it was after the session when the avalanche of autographs and photographs arrived with the Txuri-Urdin footballers, who stayed for a long time with their followers, from whom they received many words of encouragement. Real’s fans are very excited about the possibility of playing their first Cup final in the last three decades, to the point that there will be more than 1,000 followers in the stands of Anduva encouraging the realists, who are going through a very sweet moment of play and results, as evidenced by the sixth position they occupy in the table, just three points from the positions of Champions League.Only three unmarked matches in the whole seasonThere is a positive fact that fans of the Real so that your team finishes finishing off in Miranda the semifinals tie of Copa del Rey. And it is that the San Sebastian team usually scores in all the games they have played this season. In fact, There have only been three matches in which I failed to score in the 31 official clashes he has played so far, between league and Cup, a more than hopeful fact, because with the small advantage that it takes from the first leg in Anoeta, scoring in Anduva have serious options to qualify to play the great end of Seville Cup. To this we must add that outside the home the benefits of the equipment Sheriff they are a safe value, and that in the Cup Count all your matches for victory. The players of the Real society have received a good dose of gasoline this Sunday for the return of the Copa del Rey semifinal in Anduva against Mirandés. In the last open session at Zubieta before the final 90 minutes are resolved to know whether or not he will be in the big April 18 Cup final, more than a hundred realistic followers gathered to cheer up the txuri-urdin players from the stands. Taking advantage of the good day that came out in Saint Sebastian, many realistic fans paid attention to the call made on social networks so that the players of Imanol Sheriff receive a last boost and encouragement in the last training open to the public before Wednesday. Because from now on, and until the meeting of Miranda, all sessions will be behind closed doors, as the Oriotarra technician usually does before each meeting. The truth is that it is not that the followers who approached Zubieta, because it was the first session after the victory against Valladolid, so it was a recovery training for the starters in that game, players who also aim to play on Wednesday in the semifinal of the Cup and those that the coaching staff has among cottons not to charge them with more work.
Wray and Nephew’s popular, made for television Contender boxing series, will premier next Wednesday March 9, with a contest between Jamaica’s Richard Holmes and Xzaviar Ford from North Carolina, at the Chinese Benevolent Association auditorium, Hope Road. The fight will be broadcast live on Television Jamaica (TVJ).The series, which is in its sixth year, will see a team of eight welterweight boxers from the Caribbean going up against a team from the USA, most of whom are from North Carolina. At an official launch on Thursday, the boxers named from the Caribbean are Jamaicans Tsetsi Davis, Richard Holmes, Ramel Lewis, Michael Gardener and Camion Goldson, along with Iwan Azore from Trinidad and Tobago, Miguel Antoine from Barbados and Revlon Lake from Guyana.The boxers from the USA in addition to Ford are, William Barber, Courtney McCleave, Kevin Reynolds, Jose Guzman, Anthony Woods, Rashid Stevens and Devonte Seay. The matchmaker from North Caronia Chris Joy was present at the launch.MIXTUREOFSKILLBoth teams have a mixture of experienced boxers and newcomers to the professional ranks. The new pros could face some major challenges in the later stages of the competition however. Jamaicans Gardener and Goldson for example are making their professional debuts, and if they are able to make it past the preliminary round, they will face more experienced boxers in the quarter finals.Several of the boxers from the USA do not have many professional fights on their records, but Joy told the Gleaner that he was confident that they would be able to hold their own against the Caribbean boxers, because of their previous amateur experience and the type of fights they have had so far as professionals.Ford, for example, who is 19, and goes up against Holmes in the opener, has a one win and three losses record. Joy is of the opinion however, that his boxer is young and talented, and had a good run as an amateur. These factors, he said, in addition to his speed, will be the attributes that Ford will bring to the contest, and will enable him to get the better of the more experience Holmes.There has been a change in the number of rounds in the early stages of competition. Instead of six rounds, the prelims and quarter finals will be over five rounds and the semi-finals over seven. This is designed to avoid as far as possible, a drawn fight. The final will however remain at 10 rounds.The winner of the series will take home $2-million, the runner up $500,000, third place $250,000 and fourth place $200,000. read more

Beautiful Erin Gallagher from Glenswilly who penned her own story to inspire other children. Picture by Brian McDaid.An eight year old schoolgirl has written about her story with cancer to give other children hope of beating the deadly disease.Little Erin Gallagher, from Glenswilly, wrote her story after one of her teachers suggested it would help others.Mum Collette said Erin left her in tears when she recalled so many small details of how she was first diagnosed with the disease when she was just a toddler. “She said she wanted to write her story as they had been chatting about it with one of her teachers, Ms Geraldine Galligan, in school.“Geraldine said there were so many miracle children and that they had one amongst them in their classroom and it was Erin.“I didn’t think much of it to be honest but when I read her story it just left me in tears. She’s a very special little girl. She has been through so much but she is still such a modest little thing,” said mum Collette.Collette and husband Charlie said they wanted to make Erin’s story public to allow other children who may be unfortunate enough to be diagnosed with cancer to see that they can still have a normal life. Colette added “Erin is a perfectly normal girl who loves Nathan Carter and footballer Michael Murphy. She is not in remission just yet because it is not beyond the five years since her treatment.“But she is perfectly normal and apart from a little skin graft on her arm, you could not tell that she has been through so much in her short little life.“When I read her story and how sh remembered so many small details it just touched a chord with me. I through that if other families and other young children read it, then they could get some hope form it as well.”Erin will take part in the Donegal Relay for Life charity event at the end of the month and hopes to meet up with singer Daniel O’Donnell once again.The singer made an emotional connection with Erin when he appeared on stage with her two years ago at the Relay for Life event and even has a treasured picture of Erin. Colette revealed “Daniel has that picture of himself and Erin in his house in Tenerife and I’m told he is very fond of it. I think that’s lovely.”ERIN’S STORY – IN HER OWN WORDSThe week after my third birthday I took a sore leg. My Mum and Dad noticed that I had a limp.My Mum thought it might go away and that I had just went over on my ankle in new sandals which she had bought me. On Friday my Mum took me to a man who is a physio and he had a look at my leg but could not see anything wrong with me. On Sundaymorning we went to mass. After mass we went home and I fell in the house and told my Mum that my leg was too sore to get up and walk.Mum and Dad brought me to A&E where the doctor done xrays on my leg. The doctor told my Mum to stay that night in the hospital with me until the other doctor saw me. I stayed in the hospital that night and slept all night.When I awoke in the morning I got my breakfast. My leg was still sore. A nurse came to the ward and asked my Mum to take me to another room. She asked my Mum to ring my Dad because he was away to work. When my Dad came in the doctor told my Mum and Dad that I was going to Dublin hospital. I did not know what was wrong with me but I knew it was something bad because my Mum was crying. My Mum went home to get clothes and pyjamas for me and I stayed with my Dad. We went to Dublin in the ambulance and the ambulance driver put on the blue lights and sirens for me.I arrived in Crumlin hospital and I saw lots of children with no hair. I said to my Mum that they were all babies here because no one had hair. My Mum explained to me that with the medicine I would have to get to make me better might make my hair fall out. I didn’t really mind. My Mum told me I had cancer. I didn’t really know how bad this sickness was because I was too wee but sometimes after the medicine I would feel really sick. The next day I was taken to theatre and had a Freddie line put into my neck and chest. It had two different colours on it. They were red and green. My Mum had to learn from the nurses how to clean the line and how to change the bandages on my line and to take my bloods. I stayed there for nine days and got all sorts of different medicines to help me.We came home after nine days. Two days after I got home my Mum noticed a black spot on my arm. She took me to Letterkenny Hospital and they tried to make it better but it just got bigger and I got really sick. They sent me in the ambulance again to Dublin just me and my Mum went this time because my Dad had to stay and work and help look after my brothers. I got to Dublin and saw lots of different doctors who were trying to see what kind of infection it was. They gave me different antibiotics and six days later they took me to theatre and took away the black part off my arm and took skin off my leg to cover my arm, this is called a skingraft. When I woke from theatre my arm and leg were really sore. During this time I had to keep getting horrible medicine called chemotherapy. My leg would not heal and the doctors explained to my Mum that it was because I was getting chemotherapy.I had to stay in hospital in Dublin with my Mum for 22 weeks until my leg and arm got a bit better. The nurses taught my Mum how to dress my arm and leg and I liked my Mum doing it better than the nurses. My Dad and my three brothers visited me some weekends. I had no hair at all and the nurses were calling me Sinead O Connor. I did not know who this was so my Mum showed me a picture of her on her phone.I got home again after that and often had to go to Letterkenny Hospital to stay for a week or so if I had an infection. Mum always stayed with me and I would stay with the nurses or Mum’s friend if Mum had to go home for clothes or a shower.I had to go to Dublin on Christmas eve to get medicine and I was really sick. I slept all the way home and was very sick during the night. Santa came but I didn’t feel like opening my presents. I had to go back to Crumlin hospital by ambulance on Boxing Day and I was there for a long time. My Mum told me I was there for 19 weeks.I had to go to theatre once a month to get a lumbar puncture done. This was when they put a big needle into my spine and put medicine in there as well. I used to go to the playroom if I felt like it. There was lots of lovely toys there. I used to play a lot with play dough. I got home then after that and had to go to Letterkenny Hospital sometimes if I had a temperature. I had started school and my teacher Mrs. Mc Cafferty was the best teacher to me she was so kind to me if I felt bad. I also had an SNA called Clare who was really good to me. I could not walk and had to learn to walk again. My Mum had to take me into school and carry me through the house. Then I got a wee walking aid to help me in the house. I managed through baby infants without missing too many days and only got chemotherapy at home on a Tuesday. I didn’t like the tablets and had to stand at the front door to take them so I could get fresh air and I wouldn’t be sick. Mum explained to me that I had to take it to make me better.I then moved on to senior infants. I finished my medicine and since then I have been really well. My legs got strong again and now I am just the same as everyone else. I only go to Dublin once a year to see the doctors and get a check up.I wish there was no such thing as cancer but just feel glad that I beat it.Erin Gallagher,Age 8.
