Coach Thomas Kojo Appeals to Liberians to Follow Chappy’s Example

first_imgCoach Thomas Kojo and Mr. Chappy at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports ComplexNational soccer coach Thomas Kojo has a word for Liberians who want to see a better Lone Star.A better Lone Star means a team that can ably represent the country in continental matches.Last week Coach Kojo received 40 pairs of slippers from the Chappy family of Norway as their way of supporting the national team.“We want other Liberians to follow the example of the Chappy family,” Kojo said.The Chappy family lives in Norway, but their hearts are in Liberia, the senior Chappy said in an interview last Friday at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Complex.The Chappy family includes the father, who was an active footballer as a young man, and his two sons Edmund Alexander Chappy and Desmond Crisis Chappy.Both young Chappys are actively playing football in Norway and the father said he is grooming his sons to become assets for the rebuilding of the national soccer team, Lone Star.The senior Chappy, while on his way for a vacation at home in Liberia, thought about the national soccer team.“I could not come home empty-handed since the national team defeated Zimbabwe at the African Cup of Nations’ encounter,” he said. “So I bought 40 pairs of slippers for the team as my contribution for the team’s future success.”Lone Star’s immediate future challenge will be their last match against DR Congo. Liberia has 7 points behind Zimbabwe with 8 points, and a victory over DR Congo will put the Liberia on the top of Group G with 10 points.Liberia’s last match is in DR Congo on 22 March 2019. “We are providing the best training we can have for the players because the match on 22 March is a crucial game,” said Coach Thomas Kojo.“We want Liberians to support our players, and they must have confidence in our players,” Kojo said. “What Chappy has done for the players is what we want all of you to be doing. The LFA and the Ministry of Youth & Sports are doing their best under the present economic difficulties.”If that is done, the players will see that they are much appreciated by their own people.Coach Kojo said the national team players train from Monday to Saturday at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Complex, with Sunday being a rest day for them. He meanwhile expressed gratitude to Mr. Chappy for his support and prayed that God would replenish his kindness.Though Coach Kojo did not suggest it, it will be good for any Liberian, who wants to provide in cash or in kind, to present it to the Liberia Football Association.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Mavericks Barbers: The worst ways to sabotage your own haircut

first_imgThis week, the team at Mavericks in Letterkenny are sharing secrets from the barbershop floor in their guide to getting the haircut you actually want:We got a lot of guys asking us about last week’s column in the shop, in particular, a few guys asked what is the worst thing that a client could do sabotage their own hair cut. So, we decided to share these few tips with you this week.Over Doing It It is a given that some men will have a small bit of product in the hair. However, the Mavericks cannot come up for a reason to have half a tin of Dax in the hair the day that a man plans to get his hair cut. A small bit of product will dissolve with a bit of water, but too much product creates all sorts of problems. Hair doesn’t lift in the correct manner, scissors do not cut it properly, trimmers get blocked and push the hair instead of trim it. The bottom line is, your hair cut can not possibly be as good as what it should be. It is ok for Mavericks as we can wash our clients hair conveniently if required but a lot of barbershops are not kitted out professionally and do not have the facility of washing hair. Great haircuts at Mavericks Barbershop LetterkennyIn DisguiseWant to distort your hair before you get it cut? Then wear a cap before you go into the barbershop. If your hair has a dent in it right around your head then there is the chance that this track will still be around your head after the cut and it may be slightly longer or shorter than it should be! Again, an experienced barber will know how to deal with this, but do you want to take that chance?Mavericks Barbers LetterkennyPoor PostureA barber uses the floor several times through out a hair cut. They cut , create sections, draw fade lines, etc parallel to the floor and this is amongst other techniques. If your posture is poor, then your head will not be in the correct upright position. So gents shoulders back, and looking straight ahead, eyeballing yourself in the mirror.A Moving TargetA 3 year old not realising that if he wants a good hair cut he should stay still is one thing, but when a grown man is all over the shop and he has asked the barber for a skin fade which is 40 minutes of real detailed work, then he doesn’t have much of a chance of nailing it to a moving target. Getting a great haircut requires effort from both the client and the barber, these are a few pointers for the client, but none is more important that what was referred to in last week’s column, clear communication between the barber and client resulting both parties, 100% clear on the desired outcome.Mavericks Barbershop LetterkennyA few honourable mentions to other things that a client should not do while the barber is carrying out some detailed work on you:😉 Jump up to celebrate your team scoring a goal on a Saturday afternoon😉 Turn you head to look at him every time you talk 😉 Sneeze😉 Cough or ANY MOVEMENT when getting a cut throat shave😉 Nod your head to a good tune in the barber shopThe Mavericks are always on hand and will give you their advice on what is possible for you, so call in and treat yourself to the best haircut a man can get. Mavericks Traditional Barbershop, Lower Main Street, Letterkenny.
