Portmore clip Arnett to maintain RSPL lead

By Sports Desk October 21, 2018

Defending champions Portmore United continued a steady recovery from their opening day stumble, after registering a 3-2 win over struggling Arnett Gardens to stay perched atop the Red Stripe Premier League table on Sunday.

The St Catherine team, however, did not have things all their own in the thrilling encounter at the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex.  Portmore found themselves behind courtesy of a 30-minute Lennox Russell penalty but were soon back on level terms when Surinamese striker Donnegy Fer found the back of the net six minutes later. 

Roshane Sharpe put the title holders in the lead with his goal in first-half extra time but the hosts were once again on level terms when Fabian Reid netted in the 59th.  A Rondee Smith penalty, however, secured full points for the cup holders in the 62nd minute.

Elsewhere, Cavalier coasted to a 5-1 thrashing of visiting Montego Bay United at Stadium East.  Leonardo Rankie opened the scoring for the home team in the 3rd minute, with Nicholas Hamilton doubling the score 11 minutes later.  Chevone Marsh scored in the 39th with Nicholas Amponsah getting Montego Bay on the scoresheet in the 65th minute.  Alex Marshall (84th) and Nicholas Nelson (90+1) then completed the rout for the home team.

In other games, promoted Dunbeholden registered their second win of the season with a high-scoring 4-3 win over Humble Lion at Effortville.  Tivoli Gardens registered a 1-0 win away to UWI and Reno defeated Waterhouse 1-0.

    Real Madrid have completed the signing of Brazilian teenager Reinier Jesus from Flamengo.

    The attacker has long been linked with a €30million switch to Madrid, with reports previously suggesting he would sign after turning 18 on January 19.

    Reinier's arrival was subsequently confirmed on Monday, agreeing a six-and-a-half-year deal at the Santiago Bernabeu.

    He scored six goals in 14 appearances for Flamengo in Brazil's Serie A last year.

    During his brief stint in Flamengo's senior side, Reinier collected medals for both the Brasileiro and Copa Libertadores titles – though he did only make a single appearance in the latter.

    He was also a part of the Flamengo squad that narrowly missed out on the Club World Cup title last month, as Liverpool beat them 1-0 in the final.

    A technical, creative and powerful attacking midfielder, Reinier initially attracted attention for his performances with Brazil in the 2019 South American Under-17 Championship.

    Captaining his country, Reinier netted three times – a figured bettered by only three players – as Brazil otherwise disappointed, failing to get beyond the first group phase after finishing fourth in Group B.

    Despite links with Madrid, Reinier signed a new contract with Flamengo in November – the deal reportedly including a €35million release clause.

    Madrid confirmed Reinier will link up with their second string Real Madrid Castilla after his participation in CONMEBOL's Pre-Olympic Tournament finishes in early February.

  • West Ham flop Roberto joins Alaves on loan West Ham flop Roberto joins Alaves on loan

    West Ham goalkeeper Roberto has signed for Deportivo Alaves on loan for the rest of the season after a disappointing first six months in the Premier League.

    The 33-year-old was brought to London Stadium on a free transfer at the end of May as a back-up to established number one Lukasz Fabianski, signing a two-year deal.

    But an early hip injury for Fabianski handed Roberto his opportunity in the first team.

    The Spaniard played eight times in the league but was at fault for a number of goals during a slump in form and was eventually replaced by David Martin.

    Fabianski suffered another injury earlier this month, yet West Ham have brought back Darren Randolph from Middlesbrough in a reported £4million transfer.

    Roberto has subsequently been allowed to return to LaLiga on a temporary deal.
