The actions were not representative of what this team stands for as a whole.” Parkes tweeted an apology yesterday. “To the fans, my teams, the city of PGH, NY Red Bulls 2 and the USL, I recognised that my action was wrong and inappropriate and I sincerely apologise and regret my actions,” he said. “Despite the continuous altercation throughout the game, my further action after I was carded was unwarranted and I ask for my fans, the league and my teammates, as well as the New York Red Bulls to accept my sincere apology.” The 26-year-old Parkes scored five goals in six appearances for Pittsburgh Riverhounds since joining three months ago. He had spent the previous two years with A D Isidro Metap·n in El Salvador. In 2014, Parkes helped the team win the Apertura Championship and reach the 2015-16 CONCACAF Champion League. He also represented St George’s FC, Highgate United, Tivoli Gardens FC, and Boys’ Town FC locally. He was part of the Jamaica team at the Copa AmÈrica tournament in Chile last year and was named in a 40-man provisional squad for the historic Copa Centennial, which takes place in the United States from June 3-26. APOLOGIES TO ALL The Pittsburgh Riverhounds have terminated the contract of Romeo Parkes as he stomped an opponent after being shown the red card, in Saturday’s United Soccer League (USL) football match against the New York Red Bulls II. Parkes kicked Red Bulls defender Karl Ouimette in the back late in the second half as frustrations boiled over as the Hounds were poised for another loss at home, with the score 1-3. Parked had scored the lone goal for his team, while his Jamaican counterpart, Junior Flemmings, provided an assist for New York Red Bulls. The ugly reaction to a red card left Ouimette on a stretcher and Parkes facing a lengthy ban and possibly even more. Yesterday, the team decision was announced by owner Tuffy Shallenberger, who cited conduct detrimental to the team and the USL.last_img read more

first_imgDuring the India leg of the RBCC in Feb-June this year, During the India leg of the RBCC in Feb-June this year, Red Bull had tweaked the T20 format with each team batting twice. So four innings were being played in a match and captains who won the toss allowed their opponents to choose whether to bat or field first so that they can reserve the right to decide whether to bowl or bat after the first 20 overs, where both the teams have batted for 10 overs each. It was also not a traditional innings like it happens in Tests. Here, a teams 2nd 10-over innings picked up where the 1st innings left off, i.e. if a team made 60 runs for the loss of 3 wickets in 10 overs, they had to start their second innings 3 wickets down, with 60 runs on the board and the same two batsmen at the crease. Also it is not compulsory to play all five bowlers in both the 10 overs innings. If a team wishes, a bowlers entire quota of four overs can be bowled in one innings. “I think this format have a lot of potential. Though it might look complex, a lot of strategic decision making goes into it and it makes it more interesting and less tiring for the players as there are two innings of 10 overs,” Hitesh said.
