Soccer Madang-based National Soccer League football club Tusbab Stallions have started training last week, and are slowly picking up their preparations for the probable resumption of competition next month. “A month is good enough to prepare for competition. However, I need the players to pick up training quick, especially when we did not have any training since the shutdown,” coach Rachel Wadunah said. She added that it’s quite hard to get the players back into their rhythm but she’s hoping that by this week the team should be into full tempo. The club has an additional five new players in the side. They are Godfred Karambi and William Kasuray who will play in the backs position, Joshua Wadunah (wing), Oswald Bade (winger) and Fernando Kuliau (striker) who is a grade 11 student at Megiar High School, north coast of Madang province. Although there have not been any active football activities in Madang for almost a month, the team is more likely to pick itself up and get into full training this week. “When there is no football, it is really boring. It is exciting and I am looking forward to resuming to competition,” Wadunah said. She encourages Tusbab Stallion players to set goals and work towards achieving them. “Be the best at everything on and off the field,” she said.

- Alberta finance minister defends debt growth
Alberta hopes higher oil prices will power recovery Alberta’s economy ‘stuck in low gear’ Dan Healing Keywords Alberta Related news Alberta’s economic outlook on the rise: ATB Financial Alberta’s provincial debt is growing but remains “manageable,” despite criticism from credit rating agencies following last week’s budget, Alberta Finance Minister Joe Ceci says. Agencies including Moody’s Investor Service and DBRS Ltd. say they are reviewing the province’s ratings, which are used to determine its cost of borrowing money, because of its growing debt levels. In a speech to the Calgary Chamber of Commerce on Monday morning, Ceci says he expects Alberta revenues will grow with its economy over time to reduce the deficits. “I certainly understand, appreciate the credit rating concerns people have, but I think if we keep care of the fundamentals in this province, which is continuing to move forward, continue to have good governance, continue to be an attractor with low taxes, and promote this province to others, we’ll take care of those other things,” he said. “What we’ll see going forward is an expansion of the economy.” Chamber president Adam Legge said the budget was based more on hope than being realistic and said the government must work to shrink the gap between revenue and spending. The province expects a $10.3-billion deficit for the coming fiscal year which starts April 1 and forecasts that its debt will rise to $71.1 billion by 2020. “Alberta’s rapidly rising debt burden, protracted deficits and above-inflation expense growth continue to put significant pressure on its rating,” stated Adam Hardi, Moody’s assistant vice-president in a news release on Friday. “The province’s plan to issue an additional C$38 billion in debt over the next three years to finance its operating deficits and capital plans will contribute to a rising debt burden that may approach 150% of revenues by 2019-20 (on a Moody’s adjusted basis).” Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Facebook LinkedIn Twitter
