Betis change face with Pier

first_imgThe Betis not the same since the arrival of the coach Pier Luigi Cherubino, who replaced in office Antonio Contreras. The former Verdiblanco player has managed to change the direction of the team, which was in decline, to get it out of the red zone and change the feelings completely. “This team is trained to be higher. You have to keep squeezing the girls because they have room for improvement, “Pier said in a recent interview with the Betis media. The numbers speak for themselves. Under Contreras’ mandate, the Andalusian team added eight points in thirteen games played in the League, with seven defeats, five draws and only one victory. Figures that have improved substantially under Pier’s orders. After eight league games since joining the coaching staff, the Andalusian team accumulates twelve points, with three wins, three draws and two defeats. It is worth noting the important points added against direct rivals such as Espanyol (2-1) or Valencia (2-2) and the team’s great participation in the Cup: they eliminated Atlético on penalties and brushed the semis, falling in the quarterfinals against Logroño (1-0). The Verdiblanco coach was very satisfied with his work on the team, which has returned to work after a few days off due to the team break. The Bacon and a derby await the Baetics against their great rival, Sevilla, in the next days of the First Iberdrola. “The work we are doing is being received well. It is improving. The important thing now comes in the final stretch, which is where you have to press the most and improve those numbers. I am convinced since I arrived. I’m not satisfied with saving ourselves and that’s it and more seeing the players out there. We have to aspire to win games, “said PierThe former Betis player stressed that upon arrival he saw that “there was a lack of joy” in the team and has tried to recover that essence, which was also characteristic of Betis de María Pry. “When I arrived, what I did was change my mind and I wanted them to come to train with joy. If you don’t get inside and you know what they feel, you can’t get all their football out, “ Pier stressed, who also confessed to having been forced to change the way he played to get the most out of his players. The Canarian coach seems to have found his ideal system at Betis at 4-1-4-1. “My way of playing is different. I like to play more vertically. I tried it in the first games … But I think that to be a coach you also have to be smart and you should not be closed in a style of play and a way of playing football. You have to focus on what you have and the characteristics of each player, “he said.last_img read more

DYC look beyond The Birds & The Bees to plan sexual health event

first_imgThe Donegal Youth Council have a big day planned for local students on Thursday the 22nd of March. They have organised ‘Beyond The Birds & The Bees’, an event about Sexual Health & Education, which is one of the key agenda items for the current youth council.  It was voted on as a key issue by 99 young people from all over the county at the DYC AGM in 2016.Donegal Youth Council have been researching the topic for a number of months through a range of consultations in order to best meet the needs of young people.  The Youth Councillors have targeted 16years+ for the event, and have invited 4 young people from each school to attend. The Youth Council recognise that health promotion with young people can be challenging, and that sexual health is a particularly sensitive subject.  Therefore they have invited professionals in this area to ensure the information is both accurate, and age appropriate.Donegal Youth Council Coordinator Carlyn Maguire shared her thoughts about the day: “We hope that the young people that attend will stop and think about their behaviours, and that they get something positive from the day that can be applied to their lives.”The aim of the day is to develop young people’s personal skills, provide accurate information to young people regarding their sexual health by incorporating a healthy relationships workshop, and to compliment learning that young people are receiving within their schools, Youth Reach centres or any youth services that they engage with.In accordance with the National Youth Council of Ireland ‘we have a shared responsibility to provide young people with accurate sexual health information and with the tools they need to safeguard their sexual health and wellbeing.” Due to the nature of the topic a support system will be in place for young people to discuss any issues if they arise for them. Donegal Youth Council are funded by Donegal County Council, HSE Health Promotion and the Department of Children & Youth Affairs and is co-ordinated at local level by the Donegal Youth Service.
