The owner-builders have opted for a timeless design at 8 Petersen Ave, Southport.“They’re all very different, we don’t like the cookie-cutter approach,” Mrs Gillespie said. “All three pairs have a different design as I think that adds value to the area.” The duplexes are located within The Southport School precinct and offer easy access to nearby parks, cafes, childcare and Ferry Road Markets. Enjoy a view with your snags in the outdoor entertainer space.Occupying a corner position, 8 Petersen Ave is a modern home with four bedrooms, three bathrooms and views of the city skyline and Hinterland.Rather than jumping on current trends, the Gillespies draw on years of renovating and building experience to create designs that are modern yet timeless.“All of our products are designed with the idea that people can come in and add their own touch, either with paint or through their choice of furniture and decor,” Mrs Gillespie said. The kitchen features Smegg appliances and soft close cupboards.The couple has now shifted their attention to a new house build nearby in Southport, but would love to remain on Deauville Dr.“It’s so quiet here and suits us perfectly,” Mrs Gillespie said. “The next move is always an unknown when you marry a builder.”The duplex is being marketed by Glen Williams, Ray White Prestige – Surfers Paradise. The classic palette leaves room for the new owner to inject their own style.Oak herringbone flooring, white VJ walls and black accents create a classic look inside the Petersen Ave duplex.

Date set for Afghanistan’s maiden Test

first_imgBy Amlan ChakrabortyNEW DELHI, India (Reuters) – Afghanistan will play their inaugural Test match between June 14 and 18 in Bengaluru against neighbours India, the cricket boards announced yesterday.Afghanistan and Ireland joined the ranks of full-member nations of the International Cricket Council last June, taking the total number of Test-playing countries to 12.The Indian board (BCCI) has consistently backed Afghanistan, who played a home match against Ireland last year at a stadium in Greater Noida, on the outskirts of New Delhi.“Afghanistan and India have been traditional friends, even diplomatically, for ages and it’s only appropriate that Afghanistan opened its international innings in India,” BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary told reporters.Choudhary said Bengaluru was the obvious choice to stage the match bearing in mind the expected weather conditions in other parts of the country in June.“At that point of time in the year, there will be rains almost everywhere, and where there will not be rain, there will be such heat that cricket would be practically impossible during day time,” he said.Cricket has a long history in Afghanistan but the country only gained full one-day international (ODI) status in 2011.In 2015, still suffering from the impact of war and conflict, Afghanistan took part in their first 50-over World Cup and they have also played in the World Twenty20 competition.“The historic friendship and relations between India and Afghanistan go back to centuries. I‘m glad that cricket is now added as another layer,” Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) chairman Atif Mashal said.“The support BCCI has provided to ACB in the last several years has been tremendous – whether it’s backing Afghanistan in ICC while our application for full membership was under consideration or making the facilities available for us, technical assistance. We really recognise it and appreciate it.”ACB chief executive Shafiq Stanikzai said the June Test will be a dream-come-true for the Afghanistan players, and would trigger the sport’s growth.“Cricket has a bright future in Afghanistan. We have raw talents, the only thing is we need is to polish them and give them proper exposure,” he said.“Our target is to be a competitive side in Test cricket in the coming three years.”last_img read more

Track & field prepares for NCAA Championships

first_imgThe USC track and field team spent Memorial Day weekend up north, competing in the NCAA West Regionals at Sacramento State. In the penultimate meet of the season, USC saw 20 of its athletes punch their tickets to the NCAA Championships, which take place in Eugene, Ore. next week. Junior thrower Matthew Katnik prepares to throw a shot put ball. Daily Trojan file photo.A highlight for USC last weekend was a standout performance from freshman Twanisha “TeeTee” Terry. On Saturday, she helped her team of redshirt junior Dior Hall and seniors Kendall Ellis and Deanna Hill reach the NCAA Championships for 4x100m relay, with the group running a second-best time of 43.58. Terry was far from finished. In addition, she placed second at the regionals for 200 meters, clocking at 22.74 and marking a freshman record for the Trojans. Terry had previously qualified for the NCAA Championships for 100 meters on Friday, meaning she will compete in three events in Eugene. Unlike the women’s 4x100m relay team, the men’s group had a tough day in Sacramento. Sophomore T.J. Brock, junior Raj Benjamin, freshman Zach Shinnick and sophomore Michael Norman failed to qualify for the NCAAs. The team was unable to finish, dropping the baton early in its run. Despite the setback, USC looks to make a major impact at the NCAA Championships. Freshman Chanel Brissett, sophomore Anna Cockrell, sophomore Mecca McGlaston and Hall all qualified for 100m hurdles event, with Brissett finishing second at Regionals with a stellar time of 12.86. And while the 4x100m relay group fell short, members of the team still have the chance to shine next week. Brock will compete in 100m, after finishing seventh at regionals and recording a personal record of 10.19 seconds on Thursday. Meanwhile, Benjamin turned in a strong performance in the men’s 400m hurdles. He advanced to the NCAA Championships, after placing first with a school record time of 47.98. According to USC Athletics, his time is the second-best in the world. He looks to continue his impressive times with another standout performance in Eugene. Outside of track, redshirt senior shot putter Nick Ponzio finished eighth at regionals. He’s not a stranger to the big stage, as his throw earned him a fourth-consecutive ticket to the NCAA Championships. Ponzio looks to improve upon a sixth place finish last year.On Thursday, junior Lyndsey Lopes earned a spot at the NCAA Championships for high jump, narrowly making the field with an 11th place finish in Sacramento. For senior long jumper Madisen Richards, there was much less doubt she would punch her ticket to Eugene, as she finished second  in qualifying. The NCAA Championships begin June 6 and last until June 9. USC will field athletes in 28 different events.last_img read more

Written By First Published: 4th December, 2019 18:25 IST WATCH US LIVE 9 months ago MLB trade rumours: New York Yankees in for Gerrit Cole, Didi Gregorius? The New York Mets are considering the possibility of trimming their payroll in the offseason. According to The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal, the Mets are considering trading infielder Jed Lowrie and Jeurys Familia in a package deal with the low-cost first baseman Dominic Smith. The New York Mets had acquired both players last season. Also Read: MLB Trade Rumours: New York Yankees In For Gerrit Cole, Didi Gregorius?MLB Trade rumours: New York Mets looking to trade Jed Lowrie and Jeurys Familia LIVE TV MLB Trade rumours: Jed Lowrie and Jeurys Familia last seasonJed Lowrie was limited to 9 games last season due to injury. Despite him being an All-Star player, his age and injury issues dropped the 35-year-old’s trading value. On the other hand, Jeurys Familia had a season to forget, finishing with an ERA of 5.70 and 4.88 FIP in 66 outings with a 6.3 BB/9 last season. The 30-year-old was brilliant before the previous season, closing 123 games for the Mets from 2013 to 2018.Also Read: MLB Trade Rumours: Texas Rangers Could Sign New York Yankees Player Miguel AndujarMLB Trade rumours: New York Mets looking at damage control?It seems like the New York Mets’ General Manager Brodie Van Wagenen is trying to clear some of the mess he created last season. Van Wagenen in his debut season last year acquired both Jed Lowrie ($20 million, two years) and Jeurys Familia ($30 million, three years). Familia is still due $22 million through the 2021 season while they owe Jed Lowrie $ 13 million through the 2020 season. According to Spotrac, The New York Mets are $11.5 million luxury tax, and it could be one reason they are aiming for a bit of financial flexibility. While Mets haven’t made the team’s payroll public knowledge, it seems like the New York side, who are known to be frugal,  are trying to cut down on their costs. Also Read: MLB Trade Rumours: Jacoby Ellsbury Released By New York Yankees, What’s Next For Him?MLB Trade rumours: Mets willing to add Dominic Smith in the Lowrie-Familia packageThe question here is whether the New York Mets should use Dominic Smith in what’s effectively a damage control procedure. Smith batted .282 and slugged .525 with 11 home runs and 25 RBI in 89 games in 2019. The 24-year-old is not due free agency till 2025. The only reason for the Mets to trade him would be because he fits better as a first baseman, which creates a problem for the Mets since National League Rookie of the Year Pete Alonso is their long-term answer at first.Also Read: Cincinnati Reds Pitcher Trevor Bauer’s McLaren Destroyed In Bizarre Accident 9 months ago Houston Astros accused of using electronic equipment to steal pitching signslast_img read more

Crystal Palace fans delighted with signing of Jordan Ayew

first_imgThank you Mr. Parish you’re the best owner in the league xxx— sam 🎪 (@Roilionpapis) July 25, 2019 Absolutely Stupendous— G (@worldclasswoy) July 25, 2019 Black Stars striker, Jordan Ayew might have been the target of some criticism for large parts of his senior career but it seems the player is in line for a fresh start next season at Crystal Palace.Having spent last season on loan at the London club, Jordan has now signed a permanent deal keeping him at Selhurst Park for three more years.Despite not being the most prolific goalscorer for the club, with only two goals and two assists in 25 appearances last year, Jordan endeared himself to Eagles fans with his work rate and effort.His game-deciding strikes for the club certainly didn’t hurt his reputation with the club’s supporters either.center_img Jordan Ayew’s often ignored goalscoring prowess came to the fore at the just-ended African Cup of Nations tournament where he led the Black Stars to the Round of 16, scoring two of Ghana’s five goals at the competition.This has heightened the excitement of Palace fans who hope that he can replicate this fine form in the Premier League.last_img read more
