Cisse eyes return to striker role

first_img Press Association Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse is ready to terrorise Barclays Premier League defences once again – as long as he gets to play in his favoured position. He added: “It was difficult last year because we were fighting not to go down. The year before, all of the players enjoyed the games and couldn’t wait for the next one. “We tried our best, but we hopefully will have all of our players back, not too many injuries. “We have a good squad. I enjoy playing for this team. Next season, we will challenge. “We have Hatem Ben Arfa, [Moussa] Sissoko and Yohan Cabaye, and the team can challenge at the higher end of the table.” However, if Newcastle are to mount the kind of challenge they did two seasons ago, they will need to find the man – or men – they need to support Cisse. Pardew’s mission to recruit at least one foil for the former Freiburg man was identified as the main focus this summer long before a disappointing campaign drew to a close. But to date the Magpies, with new director of football Joe Kinnear now heading the hunting party, have been directed up a series of blind alleys. They have been given permission to talk to Wigan’s Arouna Kone, although the Ivorian’s intention to be reunited with former manager Roberto Martinez at Everton appears to have ended their interest. center_img The Senegal international spent the first half of last season playing in an unaccustomed wide right-side role as Demba Ba got the nod through the middle, and memories of his blistering start in English football soon faded. Cisse told the Chronicle: “I hope to play in my best position as much as I can. My best position is striker. I had never played right wing in my life. It was my first time at Newcastle. It was okay because I was doing it for the team.” last_img read more

England pair target Scottish team title

first_img Annabell Fuller and Gemma Clews will represent England in the Nations Cup event at next week’s Helen Holm Scottish women’s open stroke play championship. The team trophy is awarded to the pair with the best aggregate score over all three rounds, which take place from 21-23 April. The first 36 holes are played at Troon Portland and the final round over the Old Course, Royal Troon. Both players are in great form. Fourteen-year-old Fuller (Roehampton, Surrey) was third individually in the women’s European Nations Cup last month and runner-up in the Harder Hall women’s invitational in Florida in January. She’s currently representing England in the French U21 women’s championship. Last year, the girl international won the Sir Henry Cooper Junior Masters and had six second places. Clews, 22, (Delamere Forest, Cheshire) has won two top scratch events this season, with a combined score of 20-under par. She claimed the Delamere Comboy Scratch on her home course for the fourth time, before following up with last weekend’s victory in the Hampshire Rose at North Hants. Last season she helped England win the women’s Home Internationals and was third on the England Golf Women’s Order of Merit. The team reserve is Lancashire’s Sophie Lamb, 19, (Clitheroe, Lancashire) who is the current British stroke play champion. She was runner up in the Hampshire Rose and 8th in the Harder Hall.
