Elite Real Estate Services residential sales specialist David Galloway-Penney said Edge Hill was generally regarded as an area of high capital growth, making it a popular suburb for renovators.“Also the age of the properties (appeals) – you’ve got a lot of ’70s and ’80s built homes in that suburb,” Mr Galloway-Penney said.“They’re also big homes.” Savvy Cairns home owners are renovating existing properties and selling them at a profit only a year or two later. Elite Real Estate agent David Galloway-Penney sold this 1970s home at Edge Hill for over $800,000, returning a tidy profit to the sellers.

The 1975-built home was originally a four-bedroom, two-bathroom home. It was sold with one additional bedroom and bathroom. “It was a multi-level home and upstairs had the main bathroom, so any guest visiting had to go upstairs to use the bathroom,” Mr Galloway-Penney said. “They rearranged the floor plan and they turned the downstairs laundry into a powder room. It was an architecturally designed home on a cascading block, so it had a lot of potential.”He said the previous owner had begun renovating within a week of purchasing, replacing garden beds with outdoor patios and ripping up flooring and terracotta tiles to polish the concrete underneath.last_img read more

Paderborn’s Luca Kilian, 20, was the first case of Covid-19 in the German top-flight which has been postponed until at least 2 April due to the pandemic. The Germany Under-21 international had missed seven matches since suffering a muscle injury in late-January but his club’s last match was the March 6 loss to Cologne. “It started on 10 March with a little bit of irritation in the throat. The day after I had a headache but I kept training” he told newspaper Westfalen-Blatt. “On 12 March I had the first of my hot flushes and a day later they were really strong. Fever and strong shivers. It was then I started being really scared for the first time. “It took four days for the fever to drop, and after that I felt better every day,” he added.Advertisementcenter_img Kilian, who joined the league’s bottom club, from home town side Borussia Dortmund at the start of the season, was able to return home to his family to be taken care of by his mother, a nurse. Luca Kilian in tough battle with opponent in one of the Bundesliga matches before league was suspended “If I had stayed alone in Paderborn I would have gone to hospital,” he continued. “I can now talk from experience. I’m a sportsman and in form, but I had to fight a lot against the virus.

Mourinho cautious with Costa

first_img The City trip is the first of four key domestic fixtures in Champions League weeks for the Blues, who will hope to swiftly find a solution to Costa’s niggle. The trip to Sporting Lisbon is followed by a home clash with Arsenal, Manchester United away follows the Maribor home tie and a date at Liverpool is immediately after the trip to Slovenia. Didier Drogba started up front for the Blues in Costa’s absence, but the hero of the 2012 European Cup win was culpable as Chelsea missed a host of chances to add to Cesc Fabregas’ early opener. Klaas Jan Huntelaar equalised on the counter-attack as Schalke punished Chelsea to earn a point. Captain John Terry admits Chelsea must address their defensive flaws ahead of Sunday’s showdown with City, who will provide a stiff test of the Blues’ title credentials after wins over Burnley, Leicester, Everton and Swansea. Chelsea twice beat City last season, only to finish four points behind them in third place in the final table. The Blues have conceded six times in the Premier League and Terry was concerned by another leaked goal against Schalke. “It’s disappointing to drop points in the first game at home,” the captain said on Chelsea travel to Premier League champions Manchester City on Sunday with Costa likely to return to the starting line-up after Mourinho opted to select the Spain striker only as a substitute in Wednesday night’s 1-1 draw with Schalke in Champions League Group G. Costa has scored seven times in four Premier League matches this term, but Mourinho says the £32million summer signing from Atletico Madrid is not ready to play more than one game a week after a hamstring problem recurred while on international duty earlier this month. “The first four league games we’ve been killing teams off. We didn’t do it (against Schalke) but it was disappointing to concede the way we did, from a counter-attack from our own corner. “It was our corner, we were attacking and we got caught on the break. It shouldn’t happen. “It’s the second time already this season it’s happened.” Chelsea were beaten by Swiss side Basle in their opening home game last term and responded with four wins to advance. Mourinho will be keen for early progress in Europe, given the domestic schedule, and Terry is targeting top spot in Group G. “We lost our first Champions League game last season and we came back to win the group and go through,” Terry added. “We’ve got some tough games coming up but that’s our aim again.” Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho faces tough decisions in his management of Diego Costa and the striker’s temperamental hamstrings as a result of the Blues’ challenging domestic fixture list.

Paratore leads Whitnell by 1 shot at British Masters

first_imgA victory on the Portugal Pro Golf Tour earned him five Challenge Tour invites in 2019 and he won the KPMG Trophy last September before claiming his European Tour card from the qualifying school.“I’ve been working hard on my game and this course suits me because it’s a little bit fiddly in places,” said Whitnell, who had not earned anything from five events in 2020 before the circuit shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic.“The peaks and troughs of the golf profession are very interesting. You’ve just got to try to deal with it the best you can,” Whitnell said. “I love the game, I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t and my amateur career speaks for itself.”South Africa’s Justin Harding fired a brilliant 63, the lowest round of the week so far, to sit alongside Whitnell on 10 under. Overnight leader David Law (69), Calum Hill (66), Ashley Chesters (66) and Rasmus Hojgaard (67) are a stroke further back. Associated Press Tournament host and club member Lee Westwood was in danger of making an early exit after a double bogey on the first, but the 47-year-old fought back to shoot 71 and make the cut on the mark of 1 under.The European Tour’s strict health protocols have been applauded, but did lead to the withdrawal of England’s Andrew Johnston after nine holes of his opening round.Johnston, who opened up last year about the mental health issues that followed his rapid rise to fame after winning the 2016 Spanish Open, said: “Being here and being confined to the hotel and course and not being able to bring my family is ultimately not what I want at this moment.“I’m struggling to get my head around it all. One minute I’m coming out of lockdown, going out for dinner, and then the next I’m back in lockdown in a hotel room.”Sweden’s Marcus Kinhult, the 98th-ranked defending champion and one of only three players inside the world’s top 100 featuring this week along with No. 82-ranked Eddie Pepperell, shot another 2-under 69. Pepperell (69) is on 6 under for a share of 13th place.

Players and caddies have been tested on arrival, will have to check for symptoms and take a temperature test daily.

Defending champions Barbados, who edged Windward Islands by a single run at Liberta Sports Club, ended third on 19.3 points.Jamaica, meanwhile, who crushed Leeward Islands by 151 runs at the Vivian Richards Cricket Stadium, finished fifth on 13.1 points, behind fourth-placed Windwards on 14.5.Leewards, without a win in their five outings, finished last on on 1.7 points.Opting to bat first in a crucial contest, T&T were held to 180 for two in an innings restricted to 43 overs, with Justin Jaggesar top-scoring with 73 off 113 balls.He put on 52 for the second wicket with Kavir Boodoosingh (29) before inspiring a 113-run, unbroken third wicket partnership with Andrew Rambaran (33 not out).In-form opener Rampertab Ramnauth then stroked a superb unbeaten 92 as Guyana marched to their target in the 31st over.He struck 13 fours in an exciting 83-ball knock, adding 90 for the second wicket with Mavindra Dindyal whose 52 came from 43 balls and included seven fours and a six.Zachary Jodah arrived to carve out a breezy unbeaten 32 off 35 deliveries, in an unbroken fourth wicket stand of 87 with Ramnauth.Rampertab RamnauthBarbados, meanwhile, won a thriller, after successfully defending a modest total.

Maikaba Targets Trophies with Akwa Utd

first_img“My personal target is to win the league with the club. At Wikki Tourists, we finished third last season and fourth in the previous season. I see Akwa United as a very ambitious side with a massive support base. I look at the team as a team the Government has supported very well and what they need in return is glory.“I came here first to see what they have on ground. I have done some homework and have already commenced training with the old players to enable me identify areas which we need to fortify. They have the best facilities in the country in terms of the stadium and training pitch and a very peaceful environment that will help me to work and achieve my target”, Maikaba stressed.With previous stints at the defunct Sharks FC, Kano Pillars and FC Abuja, Maikaba said he will consolidate on what he has met on ground and make a few additions, to keep the team in good shape ahead of the new season. He however refused to dismiss reports that he will bring along to his new team some players he worked with at Bauchi.“You cannot say you won’t bring in a player or two from your previous team to your new team, but you cannot take all players from the former team, it is not good for you as a coach and also the team. It will look as if the players are doing the work for you whereas it is the other way round. The essence of bringing in one or two of the players to the new group is to at least help pass your philosophy of playing to the other players. I have seen quality players at Akwa United FC that can produce a winning team. I am ready to work with them,” Maikaba added.Known for his youth friendly policy in clubs he previously handled, Maikaba said he will be focused on developing younger players for the team as well as the country, while also pushing for laurels.“I have succeeded in developing a couple of players. I started with Buffalo FC of Kano, where I produced the likes of Theophilus Afelokhai, Gambo Mohammed and Bello Kofarmata. They were the first set of players who won the league for Kano Pillars, though not with me. At FC Abuja, I produced players like Nosa Igiebor, Anthony Ujah and so many others. I left for Enyimba with only two players, Chinedu Udoji and Mustapha Musa, but developed many before I left.“I will give more opportunities to younger players, most especially now that the League Management Company (LMC) has made provision for registration of players below 18 years of age, at any point of the season.“We will keep encouraging younger players that are from the state, at the end of it, we hope to produce quality players not only for Akwa United FC alone, but as well as the national teams,” Maikaba told on a positive note.Maikaba who signed a two-year deal was presented to the media and fans of the club.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Newly appointed Technical Adviser of Akwa United FC, Abdul Maikaba has said that he decided to leave Wikki Tourists of Bauchi to sign for the Uyo-based side to accomplish his quests to win trophies.Maikaba who disclosed this during his official unveiling by the Uyo side yesterday, believes he can improve on the third position achieved for Wikki in the just concluded season, to win the Nigerian Professional Football league this coming season.The former Enyimba manager told, he is looking forward to a rewarding season with the Promise Keepers, despite having to make what he described as the toughest decision of his life, by sacrificing continental football opportunity to challenge for the domestic trophy.last_img read more
