Former Fox’s MD to replace Stuart Spencer-Calnan at Roberts Bakery

first_imgSource: Frank Roberts & SonsGraham Hunter will oversee Roberts Bakery and The Little Treats Bakery brandsStuart Spencer-Calnan is to leave Roberts Bakery after five years as part of a management shake-up.He will be replaced as managing director by Graham Hunter, previously a non-executive director of the bakery’s owner Frank Robert & Sons. Hunter has previously held roles as MD of sweet treats at Premier Foods, CEO of Tangerine Confectionery and MD of Fox’s Biscuits.In his new role, Hunter will oversee both Roberts Bakery and The Little Treats Bakery brands.Spencer-Calnan, meanwhile, is leaving ‘for pastures new’ at the end of October. During his tenure, he oversaw a radical relaunch of Roberts Bakery which saw it roll out fresh branding and NPD including gin & tonic fun buns and wrapped bloomer loaves.The firm said he played a key role in driving its challenger brand positioning, sales and profit growth.The move comes ahead of the departure of chairman and group managing director Robert Higginson, who will step down in January 2021 after seven years in the business. He intends to pursue a non-executive portfolio career.It marks a successful 20 years in the bakery sector for Higginson, who was previously on the board of Warburtons as finance director and managing director.“Both Robert and Stuart have led us extremely well in recent years and played an important part in developing the business. Graham will build on that progress as we look to the future,” said Mike Roberts, deputy chairman.Frank Roberts & Sons has a turnover of £93.4m with bakeries in Northwich and Ilkeston in Derbyshire. It employs 900 people and serves a mix of national branded retail, own label and foodservice customers.last_img read more

Trade minister reported to police by business partner for alleged fraud

first_imgThe lawyer added that the settlement money was related to a profit-sharing dispute between Yulius, Agus and other partners involved in a nickel ore mining and transportation project owned by diversified mining company PT Aneka Tambang (Antam) in North Maluku. Yulius claimed his company PT Yudistira Bumi Bhakti was supposed to receive US$84.2 million in profit from Agus’ business consolidation.Husdi said the dispute had been reported to the police in 2014 and that the police had named one of Agus’ colleagues a suspect. The lawyer added that Yulius accepted a peace offering of Rp 500 billion at the time and dropped the case. However, the payment was never made.Husdi said Agus did not respond to a legal notice sent by him and his client, prompting him to report the minister to the police.Read also: Politicians on economic team raise eyebrows Trade Minister Agus Suparmanto has been reported to the police by a former business partner over allegations of fraud and embezzlement of Rp 500 billion (US$36.3 million). Lawyer Husdi Herman said his client Yulius Isyudianto reported Agus to the police on Jan. 8 because Yulius had not received settlement money he claimed had been promised by Agus in 2014.“We reported him as an individual. The lawsuit is not related to his position as a minister,” he told journalists on Monday as quoted by wartakota.tribunnews.com. Responding to the matter, Agus’ lawyer, Petrus Bala Pattyona, said he had sent two legal notices to Yulius because the report was “fabricated and fictitious.” “The report is baseless and not supported by any evidence,” Petrus said, adding that Husdi and Agus had yet to respond to his legal notices.Petrus refused to provide a detailed explanation regarding the issue as police investigators were still investigating the report. He said his client was ready to provide a statement to the police.National Police spokesman Brig. Gen. Argo Yuwono said the police would follow up on Yulius’ report by “clarifying the report to the plaintiff as well as questioning witnesses and looking at evidence.” Should investigators find enough evidence, the police will continue the investigation, the spokesperson went on to say.”If investigators do not find any proof of a criminal violation, the investigation will be stopped,” Argo said.

Did VAR get big calls right? Debate rages on after Champions League drama

first_imgFILE PHOTO: VAR at Champions LeagueParis, France | AFP | Neymar called the decision that led to Paris Saint-Germain being dumped out of the Champions League a “disgrace”, while elsewhere on Wednesday Roma were left raging — both clubs are out of Europe and both feel cheated by controversial VAR calls.“It’s a disgrace. They get four guys who don’t understand football to watch a slow-motion replay in front of the TV,” the injured Neymar wrote on Instagram after watching PSG’s shock elimination against Manchester United.PSG were wobbling and trailing 2-1 at the Parc des Princes when Slovenian referee Damir Skomina gave a penalty after reviewing the images when Presnel Kimpembe blocked an apparently wayward Diogo Dalot shot with his arm.Marcus Rashford duly scored the penalty that dumped PSG out on away goals. But should such a crucial decision have been given?“I am a big supporter of VAR and I stay a big supporter of VAR,” said PSG coach Thomas Tuchel, before admitting: “It was a big decision, a cruel decision.”– ‘The law is wrong’ –In England, amid euphoria about the manner in which a depleted United side had gone through, even former players of the Old Trafford club said the penalty should not have been given.“I don’t care what any referee tells me, that just isn’t handball,” ex-United defender Rio Ferdinand said on BT Sport.“I love it that it is handball but I don’t get it. The law is wrong.”On the same channel, Michael Owen, another ex-United player, said: “I know there’ll be people who will say it’s a penalty but for me it’s not one in a million years.”UEFA bowed to pressure by bringing forward the introduction of Video Assistant Referees into the Champions League from this season’s knockout rounds.Back in September, they had announced it would come in from next season, but it was widely a success at the World Cup and is now used in many domestic leagues, including the top flights in Spain, Italy, Germany and France.However, at the very least there remain teething problems when it comes to the interpretation of handball — only last weekend changes were announced to the law from next season, saying it will no longer have to be “deliberate”. – Roma denounce ‘robbery’ –In the meantime, there remained widespread disagreement over Wednesday’s crucial calls.“What we’re finding with VAR is every ex-footballer thinks something is not a penalty but every referee thinks it is. There’s a huge disconnect and that is the worrying thing,” added Owen.A year ago, Gianluigi Buffon was in goal for Juventus when they were knocked out by Real Madrid after a debatable, late penalty.The Italians demanded the introduction of VAR on the back of that, but Buffon, now at PSG, will wish it had not been in place as he was beaten by Rashford’s kick.Meanwhile, Roma were left with the same bitter taste as they went out in extra time to Porto, losing 3-1 on the night, and 4-3 on aggregate.The tie hinged on a decision by Turkish referee Cuneyt Cakir to point to the spot late in extra time upon reviewing an incident in which Alessandro Florenzi hauled back the Porto player Fernando.Alex Telles converted the spot-kick, and Roma were then denied a penalty at the other end following a review, after Patrik Schick tumbled to the ground.“Last year we asked for VAR in the Champions League because we got screwed in the semi-final and tonight, they’ve got VAR and we still get robbed,” raged Roma president James Pallotta.“Patrik Schick was clearly clipped in the box, VAR shows it, and nothing is given. I’m tired of this crap. I give up.”Back in Italy, newspaper headlines talked of “a disgrace”, and said Roma had been “robbed”. Contrast that with the view in Portugal, as Porto advanced to the quarter-finals.“Blessed be the VAR that detected a penalty that was barely visible on the field but was very real,” said sports daily A Bola.How can VAR possibly be a satisfactory solution when interpretations of the rule continue to vary so wildly?Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Dick makes debut as England seek to bridge ten year gap

first_img1 Jul 2014 Dick makes debut as England seek to bridge ten year gap Jamie Dick (Forest Hills, Gloucestershire) is the only new cap in the six-strong England team for the European Boys Team Championships at Oslo Golf Club in Norway on 8th – 12th July. But four of last year’s squad have again been selected as England seeks to win the title for the first time in ten years. Bradley Moore (Kedleson Park, Derbyshire), Marco Penge (Worthing, Sussex), Jack Singh Brar (Remedy Oak, Dorset) and Ashton Turner (Kenwick Park, Lincolnshire) played in last year’s championships in Scotland, while Haydn McCullen (Delamere Forest, Cheshire) completes this year’s line-up. Dick, 18, (Image © Leaderboard Photography) won the Darwin Salver but lost a sudden death playoff for the Welsh Open Stroke Play Championship and tied fourth in the Welsh Youth Championship, all this year. The 2013 South West Boys champion recently represented England Golf in the German Boys Championship. McCullen, 17, a former under 16 international, made his debut as a boy cap in last year’s Boys Home Internationals. He helped Lancashire win the County Championship last year after becoming Lancashire boy champion and this year he won the McEvoy Trophy, reached the last 32 of the Amateur Championship and is currently equal third on the Titleist/FootJoy England Golf Boys Order of Merit. Moore, 16, another former under 16 international, won the Irish Boys Open Championship recently after finishing runner-up to McCullen in the McEvoy Trophy having won it the previous year. In 2013, he won the European Young Masters in Germany, reached the semi-finals of the British Boys and was runner-up to Penge in the English Boys under 16 Championship. Penge, 16, became a boy international in last year’s European Boys Team Championships having been capped at under 16 level. The winner of the Fairhaven Trophy for the past two years, he defends the English Boys under 16 title later this month. Currently No.1 on the Boys Order of Merit, the Sussex lad has also finished runner-up in the Darwin Salver, third in the McEvoy Trophy and equal eighth in the Irish Open Amateur. Singh Brar, 17, was also capped at under 16 level before making his debut in the Boys Home Internationals in 2012. He enjoyed two victories last year, the Berkhamsted Trophy and the South of England Boys Championship while he finished runner-up in the Duke of York Young Champions tournament, the Daily Telegraph Junior Championship and the Hampshire Boys. Finished fourth in defence of the Berkhamsted Trophy this year. Turner, 18, became a boy cap in these championships in 2012 in Sweden and has been a regular pick since then. A former Lincolnshire boy champion, last year he won the Darwin Salver and the Daily Telegraph Junior Championship, finished second in the McEvoy Trophy and represented GB&I in the Jacques Leglise Trophy. England has not won the Boys European title since 2004 in Finland. A runners-up spot was achieved in 2007 in Denmark while England has finished fourth in the past two years.last_img read more

Clippers interim CEO confident team will be sold

first_imgDick Parsons, the former Citigroup chairman and former Time Warner chairman and CEO, who was named interim CEO of the Los Angeles Clippers by the NBA league, takes questions during a news conference at the Staples Center in Los Angeles Monday, May 12, 2014. (AP Photo)LOS ANGELES (AP) – The interim CEO hand-picked by the NBA to run the Los Angeles Clippers said Monday he’s confident the league will succeed in forcing a sale of the team owned by Donald Sterling since 1981.Dick Parsons arrived in Los Angeles and met with management and staff of the Clippers. Sterling has been banned for life by the NBA and fined $2.5 million after recordings of him making racist comments surfaced.“My personal belief is the league will prevail, which means there will be an ownership change,” Parsons said during a news conference at Staples Center. “A prolonged legal battle is in no one’s interest, certainly not the league’s. I would hope we could avoid that.”Parsons said he won’t be involved in the ownership fight. He said he’s being paid by the NBA but he doesn’t report to Commissioner Adam Silver or the league’s owners.Donald Sterling has apologized for the racist comments captured during a recorded conversation, saying in a televised interview Monday that they were a “terrible mistake.”“He’s a little late, to be sure,” said Parsons, who doesn’t know Sterling and won’t be talking to him because the 80-year-old owner is banned. “I’m here to turn one of the burners off under the pot, not to turn it up higher.”Clippers coach Doc Rivers said he was aware of Sterling’s apology, although he had not seen the interview.“I’m glad that he did it,” Rivers said by phone from Oklahoma City, where the team plays Tuesday. “That’s what you have to do and you should do it. Probably should have done it right away.”Sterling’s estranged wife, Shelly, has said she will fight to keep her 50 percent ownership of the team. Parsons said he anticipates talking with her at some point, although he said Donald Sterling is the only controlling owner of the team.Parsons described himself as a conservator of the team, someone who will try to keep it from losing value and ensure there is a viable franchise to work with once the ownership issue is resolved.“I want to leave this place in good shape and in good hands,” he said.With Sterling barred from anything to do with the team or league, and team President Andy Roeser on an indefinite leave of absence, Parsons will be a key contact for the team’s support staff.“A lot of these folks have felt beleaguered, beyond disappointed with the way the franchise has been characterized,” said Parsons, who wore a Clippers lapel pin on his suit. “Part of my job will be to tell the folks here to stay focused on the business. Ultimately, there will be a change of ownership and management.”He said he let them know they are appreciated and the interaction gave him ideas on how to move forward, although he has offered no specifics since taking the job Thursday.“I’m only beginning to get my arms around what I’m going to do,” he said.Rivers endorsed Parsons’ hiring, believing he can calm the situation and allow employees to focus on their jobs.“He’s just gotten in the door, but he’s going to make a big difference, especially for the folks downtown,” Rivers said. “They want to know if they’re safe and where do we go from here.”Parsons has spoken to Rivers, but not yet to the players. The team is tied 2-2 with Oklahoma City in the Western Conference semifinals.“I really think it’s going to become America’s team if we get this right,” he said. “Americans love a story where someone gets knocked down and they get back up into the ring. This team has talent.”Parsons, the 66-year-old former Citigroup chairman and former Time Warner chairman and CEO, was set to return to New York in the evening because his wife is having major surgery on Tuesday. He called himself semi-retired, although he is currently a senior adviser at Providence Equity Partners.The folksy Parsons described the team’s crisis as “a very exciting challenge and an interesting time for everybody.” He likened his job to that of a ship’s captain in charge of keeping it afloat, headed in the right direction and possibly picking up speed.“There’s huge danger and pitfalls in front of us,” he said, “but there’s tremendous opportunity for this franchise.”last_img read more

Leafs gear up for tough seven-game grind; host Grand Forks Saturday

first_imgWelcome to ‘parity’ in the KIJHLMcLellan said the league is getting a lot tougher for all KIJHL teams as, on any given night, there’s not much difference between the so-called “elite” teams and those deeper in the standings.Of the four division leaders in the KIJHL, only Kamloops Storm enter the weekend on a winning streak.Eddie Mountain and defending KIJHL champion, Kimberley Dynamiters, Okanagan Division leader Osoyoos Coyotes and Murdoch’s Beaver Valley are all one losing streaks — the latter Nitehawks winless in the last two.“Creston will be a tough game for us and Grand Forks, you can never underestimate (Border Bruins),” McLellan said.“They’re proving to be a tough opponent in the Murdoch Division. . .. Just ask Beaver Valley, who got beat by Grand Forks (twice at home last Saturday and Tuesday night, in overtime).”Nelson has won both meetings this season against the Bruins. However, the two wins were one-goal affairs with the latest a 3-2 overtime win October 16.The Leafs and Bruins get back to the ice Tuesday for the return match in Grand Forks.Looking for a diamond in the roughThe Leafs added another player to the roster last weekend when McLellan scooped 6-foot, 185-pound forward Matthew Sokol from the Summerland Steam.Sokol, a native of Calgary, Alberta, had a goal and an assist in 14 games with the Steam.McLellan hopes Sokol can add some size and toughness to the third and fourth lines for the Leafs.Sokol saw his first action Sunday in Nelson’s 4-1 win in Spokane over the Braves. After spending more time on the practice ice than in Kootenay International Junior Hockey League games situations during the first part of November, the Nelson Leafs gear up for a hectic, seven games in 16 day stint to conclude the month.The Leafs, sitting in third spot in the Murdoch Division behind Beaver Valley Nitehawks and Castlegar Rebels, begin the seven-game grind Friday in Creston against the Thunder Cats.Nelson, 12-7, then plays Grand Forks Border Bruins Saturday, at 7 p.m. in the NDCC Arena, in the first of four games against Murdoch Division teams.Saturday’s contest is the first home game for the Leafs since October 24.“It’s kind of a wierd schedule, but it’s actually worked in our favour,” said Leaf coach Dave McLellan.“We’ve got five players who are injured so the time away has helped them get healthy.”McLellan said the players in sick-bay include rookie defenceman Ren Mason and Kyle Chernenkoff, netminder Patrick Ostermann and forwards Austin Lindsay and Brendan Smith.Of the five, only Ostermann could be ready when the Leafs begin weekend play Friday in Creston.If Ostermann can’t dress, even in a back up role in goal, McLellan may need to find a back up for the weekend’s games.Regardless of Ostermann’s situation, Joseph Barton is the go-to man between the pipes for the Green and White for Creston and Grand Forks.last_img read more
