Walker returns to training

first_img Press Association The 24-year-old, capped 10 times by the Three Lions, has not featured for Spurs since the first leg of Europa League last-16 clash with Benfica on March 13. The abdominal issue resulted in Walker missing out on England’s World Cup squad and saw him undergo lower abdominal surgery in September – a move the north Londoners had initially hoped to avoid. England right-back Kyle Walker has returned to Tottenham training after eight months out with an abdominal injury. A first-team return is at last in sight for the full-back, though, after he started training with Tottenham again. “It’s great to be back out there with the lads,” Walker told the club’s official website, www.tottenhamhotspur.com. “I’m taking it one step at a time, doing things correctly as I’ve been told and I’ll see where I am in a couple of weeks. “Everything is good at the moment. I’ll be even happier when I’m back playing but that’s the final step.” Walker’s return to action will be boost for country and, in particular, club, who have struggled under head coach Mauricio Pochettino this term. Eric Dier and Kyle Naughton have filled in at right-back during his absence, while DeAndre Yedlin – signed in the summer but loaned back to Seattle Sounders – will soon provide further competition for the role. There is no timescale on when Walker will again take to the field, but he believes he will do so a better player. “I think I’ve matured as a player and a person and hopefully that will take me onto the next step in my career,” he said. “From my operation to my first day back in training was a 12-week programme and I didn’t miss a day’s work. “I thought to myself ‘I’m going to put my all into this’ and hopefully that will stand me in good stead in terms of training and then working my way back into the team. “I’m taking it slowly and hopefully it won’t be too long before I’m back out there at White Hart Lane.” last_img read more

AnnaMarie Gatti throws complete-game shutout to cap off Syracuse’s doubleheader sweep of Niagara

first_imgWith a constant drizzle, whipping wind and temperatures teetering around 35 degrees, Syracuse players were bundled in long-sleeve undershirts and coats in the dugouts.Despite the dismal weather conditions, sophomore pitcher AnnaMarie Gatti threw her best game of the season, giving up just one hit in seven shutout innings against Niagara. She didn’t walk a single batter and only allowed two to reach base in the second game of the doubleheader Wednesday afternoon.“I grew up in this weather,” Gatti said. “I’m used to this, and I’m comfortable pitching in this kind of weather.”After the pitching duo of Jocelyn Cater and Sydney O’Hara handled the Purple Eagles (2-12) for a 7-1 win in Game 1, Gatti carried the Orange (14-14, 1-5 Atlantic Coast) to a 5-0 victory in the second game of the afternoon.Gatti started the game with five three-up, three-down innings, and carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning. Syracuse head coach Mike Bosch said that Gatti’s drop ball was working exceptionally well, and her control was right where it should be.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“(Gatti’s been) putting the ball where she wants to and commanding the games in situations where there was stress,” Bosch said. “She’s really come a long way since she was a freshman.”The SU coaches teach pitchers to approach every batter differently and it came in handy on Wednesday, since Niagara shifted players in and out between games one and two and pinch hit several times in the latter innings of the second game.Even so, while Gatti’s approach to every hitter may have been different Wednesday, the outcome was almost always the same. The sophomore rarely took a batter deeper than five pitches and she let just one ball reach the outfield the entire game.“At the end of the day, she has a certain repertoire that she’s going to have to have,” Bosch said, “And as long as she can make it work, she’s pretty tough to hit.”After throwing against a Florida State team ranked No. 10 in the country, Gatti knew that Wednesday’s scouting report was much different. She knew that the Niagara hitters weren’t going to be overpowering at the plate, but she still had to be sharp on the mound.“(Non-conference games) are practices for us,” Gatti said, “So instead of reading what’s across their chest, just attack each batter like you would attack any other team.”Catcher Hannah Dossett was consistent for the Orange behind the plate, helping back up Gatti’s stellar outing. She doesn’t call the pitches, but it’s her job to make them look good.“I try to frame (pitches) for each batter,” Dossett said. “Some of them stand closer to the plate, some of them stand off the plate, so I try to work with that.”For Gatti, the 2016 season has been a sharp contrast to what she went through in 2015. Her 2.63 ERA this season is much better than her 8.67 mark from last season, and she has pitched in almost four times as many innings this season as she did last.Bosch said that Gatti’s performance Wednesday showed the improvements she has made from last year and how she’s moved up as one of the Orange’s top options in the circle.“Her drop ball is obviously going down more, velocity is back up, and she’s controlling more,” Bosch said. “That’s her type of game, and that’s what we want to get out of her; you saw the results.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 23, 2016 at 9:51 pm Contact Matt: [email protected]last_img read more
