Duncan doesn’t “lose sleep over claims” he’s won no serious trophies

first_imgAsante Kotoko coach David Duncan has often been mocked for failing to win a major silverware – especially the Ghana Premier league title.He came close to doing that five years ago with AshantiGold but was denied on the last day of competition as they lost out to Aduana Stars.Duncan could reverse that should Kotoko win the final of this year’s MTN FA Cup final in the coming weeks. But the tough-talking coach reminded all about his trophy laden coaching career.“Interestingly, I also consider the other trophies that I have won on some repute because they have international dimension. If you win a cup against Mamelodi Sundowns coached by [former Bafana boss] Gordon Igesund of all coaches in an invitational tournament and I hear people say I haven’t won anything, I don’t lose sleep over that at all,” he told Joy Sports in an exclusive interview.“And then again with Free State Stars if you could win against the likes of Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates managed by top coaches in an invitational tournament, I consider those trophies to be huge achievements.“I don’t want to go into some of these controversies where our league is concerned. I don’t lose sleep over those things that I haven’t won. I like the kind of trophies I have won. I won the Swag Cup against Kotoko in 2006, and those are the competitions when you win you realized you’ve won something.” “You know how our league goes. When somebody plays against another person it is a different thing all together and I don’t lose sleep over what people describe as not winning a major tournament. The kind of trophies I have won, I hold them very dear to my heart.”Duncan took over the Reds job from Didi Dramani, who won two league titles and an FA Cup.–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.

Parents want kids to stay put

first_imgInstead, Strickland is suggesting open enrollment for those students, allowing families the option to enroll children at West Ranch, Valencia or Hart high schools. “We just need to figure out how to accommodate all the students without overcrowding a particular site,” Strickland said. Strickland added that enrollment will drop drastically at Valencia and Hart after this school year. “West Ranch is not the one and only school,” Strickland said. The bottom line for some Stevenson Ranch-area parents is that they want Castaic kids transferred some place else until the high school opens in their community. This, as the two communities consider joining to form a city. John Kunak, a member of the Castaic Town Council, said the high school issue should actually bring the communities closer. “We are all fighting for the same thing – we want our kids to stay together at West Ranch until Castaic High School is built,” he said. The Hart board could take action on the issue as early as Wednesday. [email protected] (661) 257-5254 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

And while Hart district officials have tried to assure Stevenson Ranch parents their kids will stay at West Ranch, parents are keeping their eyes on every move. They are planning to attend Wednesday’s Hart board meeting in full force. For McLister it’s about the educational experience of all children, and she is worried overcrowding will have a negative impact. “I could go on about taxes but that’s not the argument, this is about our children, we don’t want to see the quality of education fall because of overcrowding.” School board member Paul Strickland backtracked on a suggestion made last week to transfer students from neighborhoods near Calgrove Boulevard and Wiley Canyon Road to Hart High or another campus. STEVENSON RANCH – A mother of two, Suzy McLister is among a growing number of parents in the Stevenson Ranch area who are feverishly writing e-mails, passing out fliers and rallying others to ensure their children stay at West Ranch High School to ease overcrowding. The two-year-old school is crowded and expected to be jammed over the next three years because of delays in building a new high school in Castaic. The William S. Hart Union High School District is weighing whether to transfer Castaic students or others to less crowded campuses. Stevenson Ranch parents don’t want their kids to move. “To shuffle kids around after elementary school and to different junior highs and high schools is a real concern,” McLister said. “It was a concern with the Castaic community, and now it’s a concern for us.” last_img read more
