Brad Jones kept a clean sheet in Feyenoord’s 1-0 Europa League win

Brad Jones kept a clean sheet in Feyenoord's 1-0 Europa League win.

Former Caltex Socceroos keeper Brad Jones has kept a clean sheet in Feyenoord’s 1-0 win over Ukrainian opposition in the Europa League overnight.

The one-time Liverpool keeper helped his side go equal top of the group after defeating Zorya at the Stadion Feijenoord in Rotterdam.

Feyenoord are now level on points with Manchester United in Group A.

Feyenoord, coached by Giovanni Van Bronckhorst, took the lead just after the break courtesy of Nicolai Jørgensen.

Jones, 34, joined the Dutch outfit in the European summer on a one-year deal.

The big Aussie keeper has caught the eye since joining the club, including keeping a clean sheet in a man of the match display in their 1-0 win over Manchester United earlier in the group stage.

Young Matildas squad announced for AFC U-19 Qualifiers

Young Matildas Head Coach Gary van Egmond has named a 23-player squad for the AFC U-19 Women’s Championship 2017 Qualifiers tournament

Friday, 21 October 2016

Staff writer
Young Matildas Head Coach Gary van Egmond has named a 23-player squad for the upcoming AFC U-19 Women’s Championship 2017 Qualifiers tournament to be held in Nanjing, China from 2-6 November 2016.

The squad comprises a host of Australia’s best young female football talent headlined by 17 year old Ellie Carpenter, who was a member of the Australian squad that competed at the Rio Games and has five Westfield Matildas appearances to her name.

All bar four of the squad are contracted to Westfield W-League clubs for the upcoming season and van Egmond says he is impressed with the quality in the group that has been selected.

“The standard of the training camp we held at Valentine Sports Park this week has been at a really good level and we have high expectations heading over to China,” said van Egmond.

“We need to make sure we’re focussed and approach both matches with the right attitude to ensure we give ourselves every chance of making it to the next stage of qualifying.”

“The players know the privilege of what it means to represent your country and they are determined to put their best foot forward. I’m confident that with the talent we have in this group we can perform well and be successful.”

The squad will congregate for a final camp at the AIS in Canberra on Tuesday before departing for Nanjing on 29 October.

The round robin tournament, which is the first stage of qualifying for the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup, will see the Young Matildas take on the Northern Mariana Islands and Jordan.

The top team after the round robin matches advances to the Asian Cup tournament scheduled for October 2017, which doubles as the qualifiers for the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup 2018.

Frontier Airlines takes delivery of its first A320neo

Airline is first in the U.S. to get A320neo with CFM engines

Frontier Airlines, headquarters in Denver, Colorado (U.S.), took delivery today of its first A320neo. Frontier is the first U.S. airline to receive an A320neo with CFM engines, and the aircraft is the first of 80 A320neo Family aircraft the low-cost carrier has ordered. All of Frontier’s A320neo Family aircraft will be powered by CFM International LEAP-1A engines.

“We’re excited to receive our first A320neo,” said Barry Biffle, President and CEO – Frontier Airlines. “The efficiency of the A320neo will help us lower costs even more and pass those savings along to our customers.”

“We are proud to deliver the first CFM-powered A320neo aircraft in the U.S. to our valued customer Frontier Airlines,” said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer – Customers. “Now delivered to operators on three continents, the A320neo Family is the aircraft of choice among the world’s airlines.”

Each of the Frontier’s A320neo Family aircraft will feature lightweight composite Sharklets, 2.4-meter/94-inch tall wing-tip devices and new CFM’s LEAP-1A engines providing operators with double-digit improvements in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions – with a 15 percent reduction upon entry into service.

In addition to the A320neo delivered today, Frontier currently operates a fleet of 64 Airbus aircraft, including 30 A319s, 24 A320s and 10 A321s. Their current backlog of Airbus aircraft is comprised of 18 A319neo, 2 A320ceo, 61 A320neo and 6 A321ceo.

Frontier took delivery of its first Airbus aircraft in 2001 and has since transformed into an all-Airbus, all-A320 Family fleet, allowing the airline to optimize efficiency and economy by streamlining crew training and maintenance operations. The A320 Family also offers the most comfortable single-aisle cabin in the sky at a full seven inches wider than competing aircraft allowing for 18”-wide seats in comfort economy as standard.

The A320neo Family incorporates the very latest technologies including new generation engines and Sharklets, which together deliver more than 15 percent fuel savings from day one and 20 percent by 2020. With more than 4,800 orders received from 87 customers since its launch in 2010, the A320neo Family has captured some 60 percent share of the market.
