Ji the hero in Chelsea Ladies win

first_imgJi So Yun came off the bench to grab an 89th minute winner as Chelsea Ladies opened their WSL Cup campaign with a thrilling 3-2 victory over Reading.The South Korean, introduced at 2-1 down, set up the equaliser and then took advantage of slack defending from the WSL 2 side to ensure the Blues began the midweek competition with three points.Chelsea had the better of the first half and looked to be going into half-time in front when Gilly Flaherty headed home Gemma Davison’s corner in the 44th minute.But before the referee could blow the whistle for the break, Reading levelled as former Blues player Becky Jane converted Emma Follis’ cross.Reading took the lead on 58 minutes thanks to Lauren Bruton and Chelsea responded to going behind by bringing on Ji.She played an influential role in the turnaround, floating in a free-kick from which Millie Bright headed home the equaliser, before her dramatic winner.Arsenal, London Bees, Millwall and Watford are the other sides in Chelsea’s group.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

The North Coast is expected to get pounded by a couple of wet storms, with the first arriving on Thursday followed by a bigger one on Saturday. Per usual, the Smith will be the first to drop into shape, and could be fishable by Sunday. The rest of the coastal streams won’t fare quite so well. With three to four inches …last_img read more

Membership and structures

first_imgThe Partnership is a voluntary association of communicators who have come together out of a sense of common responsibility to use the 2010 communication opportunity to create a better life for all.The partnership is not a legal entity – it is a partnership of communicators across sectors and creative and communication disciplinesAll communicators who wish to contribute to the furthering of the communication objectives of the Partnership can become part of this voluntary association.However, the Partnership does not provide access to the 2010 tournament terrain which belongs to FIFA, its sponsors, commercial affiliates and supporters, and the Organising Committee.The Partnership will form alliances with communicators across the African continent and in the diaspora so collectively we can use this opportunity to tell our stories of the African continent.The Partnership is championed by a Core Group of activist members broadly reflective of marketing, media, communication, advertising, public relations, market research, tourism, sports, government, public agencies and parastatals. Within the Core Group all sectors of society – labour, business, government, and civil society – are included.The Partnership will also drive engagements within the clusters which make up the Core Group – marketing and advertising, tourism, media and communication and arts and culture – for sustained coherence and coordination through exchange of information and sharing of strategy and plans.A Task Team drawn from the Core Group drives the work of the Partnership, and meets monthly.Government Communication and Information System and the International Marketing Council provide a joint secretariat to enable the work of the Partnership.The year long schedule of engagements culminates in an annual 2010 National Communication Partnership conference. Relationship to FIFA and the Organising CommitteeThe Organising Committee is a member of the 2010 National Communication Partnership.In 2005 the Organising Committee facilitated a meeting between representatives of the Partnership and FIFA. FIFA gave support to the approach of a partnership of communicators and its objectives of taking advantage of the World Cup opportunity to communicate about the country and continent.last_img read more
