Monaco-based tanker owner Scorpio Tankers recorded a net loss of USD 27.1 million in the third quarter of 2016, compared to a net income of USD 85.3 million in the same period last year.The loss is primarily attributed to low Time Charter Equivalent (TCE) revenue that halved in the third quarter of 2016, dropping to USD 114 million from USD 227.2 million in the same period last year.According to the company, TCE revenue per day decreased across all of its operating segments as low refining margins, high inventory levels and a lack of arbitrage opportunities have resulted in reduced global product tanker demand.In addition, other expenses, including vessel operating costs, depreciation expense as well as financial expenses contributed to the overall quarterly result.During the third quarter of 2016, the company refinanced the aggregate outstanding indebtedness of USD 396.8 million under its 2013 credit facility and newbuilding credit facility.As part of these transactions, Scorpio Tankers drew down an aggregate of USD 418.8 million under its NIBC Credit Facility, 2016 Credit Facility and DVB Credit Facility.For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, Scorpio Tankers saw a net income of USD 4.7 million, against USD 183.5 million in the same period last year.
The club used the opportunity to showcase its status as a beacon club as the most talented youngsters from the south-west came together to compete in a match prior to the main event.The Beacon programme, which is supported by Bristol Sport, is open to all young players in the region and is designed to help talented young athletes progress from club water polo to the national team. The Beacon athletes train at least three times a week with many already making the national junior programmes. Two mixed teams of youngsters ranging from 14 to 16 years-old, competed on Saturday in front of more than two hundred people.A friendly high-scoring game ensued as these two teams put into practice the skills learnt in Beacon training.Central’s British Championships game against Manchester City was in contrast a low-scoring affair as both teams battled for pole position in their qualifying group.Despite two goals from Bristol in the last minute of the game the home team couldn’t overturn a strong start from their northern visitors going down 4-3. Jonny Kirk and Tom Hadley came out firing to give Manchester a two-nil lead in the opening quarter and Central found themselves immediately on the back foot.Central tried to break down Manchester’s defence in the second quarter, but to no avail, as they slipped a further two goals behind courtesy of Joe O’Regan and Tom Hadley once again, to go in trailing by four at the halfway mark.Central rallied in the second half and were unlucky not to convert a couple of excellent opportunities, denied by the woodwork and Manchester’s goalkeeper.Excellent work by Andrew Crawford in goal prevented Manchester extending their lead and finally Central’s Enrico Zanon gave the 250-strong crowd something to cheer about from an extra-man play.Going into the fourth quarter, trailing by three, Central had plenty of opportunities to pull back the deficit. However, it wasn’t to be despite three extra-man advantages Central couldn’t find the back of the net.It was only in the final minute of the game that Central scored two goals in quick succession. One from GB Olympic captain Craig Figes who fired in an outside shot with 34 seconds remaining. Moments later the Manchester keeper gave away a penalty, which Bristol’s Ashley Castle clinically converted in the final second of the game.Final score Bristol Central 3 – 4 Manchester City.Bristol Central remain second in their group and now have to win their last two games to make the finals.Central’s next game is against Portobello at Hengrove Park on Saturday, March 28th at 5:30pm.
By Iain RogersREAL Madrid’s King’s Cup exit to Atletico on Thursday was more evidence Diego Simeone’s side have the measure of the European champions this season and left Real coach Carlo Ancelotti scratching his head for a solution.A resurgent Fernando Torres struck twice in a 2-2 draw with the holders at the Bernabeu that sent Atletico through 4-2 on aggregate and set up a clash against record winners Barcelona in this month’s quarter-finals.The Torres goals, his first against Real at their giant arena in the Spanish capital, came in the first minute of each half following the kind of defensive errors Real rarely commit.First, Pepe let Antoine Griezmann skip past him with a badly-timed lunge and then a wayward Sergio Ramos pass gifted possession to the France forward in central midfield.Real have played five matches against Atletico this season, losing 2-1 on aggregate in the Spanish Super Cup and 2-1 at the Bernabeu in La Liga.Ancelotti said he was still searching for a way to get the better of Simeone this term, in contrast to last season when Real knocked Atletico out of the Cup and beat them in the Champions League final.“The key to the match was the two mistakes and that is something we have to correct,” Ancelotti told a news conference.“We found the right formula (against Atletico) last season but not yet this one,” added the Italian.“We know that they are a very strong team and we will try to plan the next game against them in the best way possible.”Real’s next outing is a La Liga game at Getafe on Sunday, when they will be seeking to protect their one-point lead over second-placed Barca with a game in hand.Atletico, who host Real in La Liga at the Calderon next month, are three points behind Barca in third after Sunday’s 3-1 defeat at the Nou Camp.Real are also through to the last 16 of the Champions League, the competition they won for a record-extending 10th time last season, and will play Schalke 04.They could meet Atletico, who were drawn against Schalke’s Bundesliga rivals Bayer Leverkusen, in April’s quarter-finals.“We made mistakes that we don’t usually make and we had problems bringing the ball out of our own half,” Ancelotti said.“It’s the first time this has happened and I don’t think it will happen again.”
