Chelsea’s youngsters will fancy their chances of reaching the FA Youth Cup final after Alex Kiwomya scored late goals to give them a 2-0 victory against Liverpool in the semi-final first leg at Anfield.Kiwomya struck with two minutes remaining and then again in injury time to put his team in a commanding position going into next week’s second leg at Stamford Bridge.He collected the loose ball after skipper Lewis Baker’s shot took a deflection and fired home from 10 yards.And Liverpool were undone again when Jeremie Boga burst across from the left and found Kiwomya, who drilled into the far corner of the net.The game came to life in the second half, with both teams hitting the woodwork before the deadlock was eventually broken.Chelsea full-back Ola Aina saw an effort shave the near post before the Blues went agonisingly close following great work from substitute John Swift.Islam Feruz latched on to Swift’s clever pass and fired against the post, with keeper Ryan Fulton keeping out Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s follow-up.Fulton also saved well to deny Kiwomya and at the other end, Kristoffer Peterson’s shot was pushed on to the post by keeper Mitchell Beeney.It proved to be an important save as the home side then faded and Kimomya showed his potential with a couple of fine finishes.The winners of the tie will face Norwich or Nottingham Forest in the final.See also:Chelsea’s Kiwomya extends loan deal at 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
This order, combined with the airlines recent lease agreement for six new A330s, will deliver a modern, comfortable, reliable and cost-efficient fleet for South African Airways’ domestic, regional and long-haul services. “It will be a key enabler in South African Airways drive for greater efficiency.” “Because they offer a seamless fit with the other Airbus aircraft types which we operate, the A320s will assist in our efficiency drive and reduce maintenance costs.” 28 May 2010 Operational commonality South African Airways already operates a fleet of 11 A319s, six A340-200s, six A340-300s and nine A340-600s. “The A320 is the most modern and efficient single aisle aircraft available and with continuous improvements we are strengthening the aircraft’s leadership position,” said Airbus chief operating officer John Leahy. South African Airways has ordered five additional Airbus A320 aircraft, increasing an earlier commitment from 15 to 20 of the planes. The aircraft, to be delivered from 2013, will be powered by IAE engines. Airbus aircraft share a unique cockpit and operational commonality, allowing airlines to use the same pool of pilots, cabin crews and maintenance engineers, bringing operational flexibility and resulting in significant cost savings. “We are delighted that this transaction has the approval of our key stakeholders, the SAA shareholder and board,” SAA chief executive Siza Mzimela said in a statement this week.

4 March 2014South Africa’s Stellenbosch Wine Routes will be making its debut at the 2014 International Tourism Bourse (ITB) Berlin on Wednesday as part of the global launch of its wine tourism marketing campaign, the “Stellenbosch Experience”.Stellenbosch Wine Routes will join forces with South African Tourism, Western Cape tourism and investment agency Wesgro, and Tripadvisor in showcasing wine tourism in Stellenbosch and the broader Western Cape.“The potential of wine tourism in South Africa is huge, and Stellenbosch and the Western Cape at large are perfectly placed to attract more wine tourists to our country, but then a far greater and more aligned effort is needed on a global scale,” Stellenbosch Wine Routes CEO Annareth Bolton said in a statement last week.The Stellenbosch Wine Experience campaign is a partnership between Stellenbosch Wine Routes and Stellenbosch 360, a cultural tourist route encompassing Stellenbosch, Dwarsrivier and Franschhoek. By launching at the ITB, the campaign aims to expand the region’s wine tourism footprint abroad.“We are thrilled about this collaboration and cannot wait to introduce Stellenbosch as the ultimate wine tourism destination in terms of quality, authenticity and value-for-money experiences to the world,” Bolton said.“With this campaign, we aim for maximum international recognition, making use of primarily digital marketing to showcase the wealth of our wine tourism offering and our passion and pride to the world. ITB offers the perfect platform for us to share just why Stellenbosch is South Africa’s wine tourism capital and benefit from the leading think-tank of the global tourism industry.“Recent research by Tourism New Zealand found that 13% of all international travellers visit wineries and embark on wine tourism related activities annually. These travellers spend more on average than other leisure travellers and stay longer,” Bolton said, adding: “It is no wonder that destinations like New Zealand are focusing a lot more on wine tourism promotions.”Other campaign elements include an enhanced digital presence across all social media networks and an innovative wine tourism blogger campaign with top international and national travel, lifestyle and food bloggers, between April and September.Stellenbosch Wine Routes, a co-ordinated network of wineries in the Stellenbosch area, was established in 1971, making it the oldest wine route in the country.SAinfo reporter

A six-year-old student was allegedly molested by a teacher at a government-aided girls’ school in south Kolkata. The incident led to a major protest by parents of students outside the school on Tuesday. The protesters threw stones at the police team which reached the spot for investigation, forcing the police to resort to baton charge to disperse them. The accused teacher was arrested and four persons were taken into custody for throwing stones at the police. The school authorities could not be reached for comments.Two separate casesJoint Commissioner of Kolkata Police (Headquarters) Supratim Sarkar said two separate cases were lodged regarding the alleged molestation and assault on police. “We have lodged a case against the accused teacher under Sections 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act,” he said.A brawl broke out in front of the school between the police and the guardians when the latter tried to break open the school gate. Both sides allegedly traded blows and a section of the protesters tried to pull off the helmets of the police personnel who retaliated with baton charge. Several guardians and police personnel were injured in the clash. “Eight police personnel, including two officers incharge, were injured,” said Mr. Sarkar. He denied allegations that there was not adequate deployment of women police personnel to deal with the situation.A section of guardians eventually broke open the main gate of the school and ransacked several rooms inside the premises. They also allegedly heckled other teachers when they tried to leave the premises. The situation was such that some of the teachers had to be taken out of the area in police vehicles.West Bengal Commission for Protection of Child Rights chairperson said that the commission will monitor the probe and seek the CCTV footages of the school from the police if required.
