Playing at the Melbourne Cricket Ground might not mean much to most touring players at the International Champions Cup. Andrew Ference Jersey .But to Tottenham youth goalkeeper Thomas Glover, it would fulfil a life-long ambition.The Sydney-born gloveman is the only Australian in the three touring sides for this years series of friendlies.At just 18, hes yet to hit the radar of most local football fans.That could change if Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino throws him the gloves on Friday night against Spanish giants Atletico Madrid.It would be a dream come true if I did, he said.Ive got to be ready to play and whatever happens, happens.Glover has come on in leaps and bounds since trialing for the club three years ago.Hes now one of four goalkeepers at the club in first-team training, with France No.1 Hugo Lloris, Netherlands veteran Michel Vorm and 21-year-old talent Luke McGee.If McGee is sent on loan this season, Glover could find himself on the cusp of the Spurs first-team.Its a tantalising prospect but not one Glover is focussed on.He says hes happy training under goalkeeping coach Toni Jimenez, working every day with two international custodians.I started off playing for Sutherland Sharks in Under 11s all the way to Under 15s, he said.I got the opportunity to trial at Spurs and grabbed it with both hands.Now theres four of us working with the first-team - Hugo, Michel, Luke and myself.Working with the best is going to make me a better goalkeeper. Mark Fayne Jersey . -- The Magic have their first victory of the new year. Benoit Pouliot Jersey . Pence singled in the winning run with no outs in the ninth inning to give the Giants a 7-6 victory over the San Diego Padres on Sunday.http:///...das-ty-rattie-jersey . It was the kind of score that might make everyone else wonder which course he was playing. Except that Graeme McDowell saw the whole thing. Crouched behind the 10th green at Sheshan International, McDowell looked over at the powerful American and said, "Ive probably seen 18 of the best drives Ive seen all year in the last two days. The Melbourne Cup is the race that stops a nation and for an event that has run for over 150 years there are plenty of statistics that you should know before we kick off 2016s Melbourne Cup Day.* First run in 1861 under the banner of the Victorian Turf Club and won by the Etienne de Mestre-trained Archer who beat the favourite Mormon by six lengths. The prize was 1420 pounds and the trophy a gold watch.* Archer came back the following year to beat Mormon, this time by eight lengths, a record margin that still stands (it was equalled in 1968 by Rain Lover).* De Mestre would go on to train three other winners of the Melbourne Cup - Tim Whiffler (1867), Chester (1877) and Calamia (1878).* Trainer Bart Cummings claimed the first of his 12 Melbourne Cups in 1965 with Light Fingers. The following year stablemate Galilee was the only horse to prevent Light Fingers making it back-to-back Cups and in 1967 Red Handed gave Cummings his third straight victory.* Cummings other winners were Think Big (1974, 1975), Gold And Black (1977), Hyperno (1979), Kingston Rule (1990), Lets Elope (1991), Saintly (1996), Rogan Josh (1999) and Viewed (2008).* Other trainers to have multiple Cup wins include: 5 - Lee Freedman: Tawrrific (1989), Subzero (1992), Doriemus (1995), Makybe Diva (2004, 2005); 4 - John Tait: The Barb (1866), Glencoe (1868), The Pearl (1871), The Quack (1872); Richard Bradfield: Patron (1894), The Victory (1902), Night Watch (1918), Backwood (1924); James Scobie: Clean Sweep (1900), King Ingoda (1922), Bitalli (1923), Trivalve (1927); W S Hinkenbothem: Mentor (1888), Carbine (1890), Newhaven (1896), Blue Spec (1905).* In 1972 the race was altered to the metric distance of 3200m, 18.7 metres or 61.5 feet short of two miles.* Kingston Rule holds the metric race record of 3:16.30.* 1985 marked the dawn of a new era for the Cup with prizemoney raised to $1 million. The owners of What A Nuisance received $650,000 and a $23,000 Cup.* This year the race is worth $3.6 million to the winning owners along with a trophy valued at $200,000.* Four-year-olds (43) and five-year-olds (44) have the best record of any age group. Other age groups are three-year-old (23), six-year-old (32), seven-year-old (10) and eight-year-old (2).* The oldest horses to win the race were the eight-year-olds Toryboy (1865) and Catalogue (1938).* The last three-year-old to win was Skipton (1941), who gave champion jockey Billy Cook his first Cup win.* There have been no dead-heats for first in the racce but Topical and Gaine Carrington dead-heated for third in Hall Marks 1933 Cup and Lahar and Zazabelle also dead-heated for third in the 1999 Cup won by Rogan Josh. Oscar Klefbom Jersey. * Bobby Lewis and Harry White are the most successful jockeys. In 33 rides in the Cup Lewis saluted the judge four times with The Victory (1902), Patrobas (1915), Artilleryman (1919) and Trivalve in 1927. He was also runner-up four times and finished third on Phar Lap in 1929.* Harry White steered the Bart Cummings-trained Think Big to successive victories in 1974 and 1975. He was back in the winners circle again with Arwon in 1978 and another Cummings runner Hyperno in 1979.* Think Big failed to win a race between his two Melbourne Cup wins.* Makybe Diva is the only horse to win the Cup three times in 2003, 2004 and 2005.* Perhaps the unluckiest of all Melbourne Cup runners was Shadow King who ran in six Cups between 1929 and 1935 finishing third to Phar Lap in 1930, second to White Nose in 1931, third to Peter Pan in 1932 and second again behind Hall Mark in 1933.* The longest-priced horses to win: Four horses have win at 100-1: The Pearl (1871), Wotan (1936), Old Rowley (1940) and Prince Of Penzance (2015).* The shortest priced are Archer 2-1 (1862), Tim Whiffler 5-2 (1867), Revenue 7-4 (1901), Phar Lap 8-11 (1930), Even Stevens 3-1 (1962), Lets Elope 3-1 (1991) and Makybe Diva at 5-2 in 2004.* Melbourne Cup winners to produce other Melbourne Cup winners:- Grand Flaneur (1880) sired Bravo (1889) and Patron (1894); Malua (1884) sired Malvolio (1891); Comedy King (1910) sired Artilleryman (1919) and King Ingoda (1922); Spearfelt (1926) sired Dark Felt (1943); Marabou (1935) sired Skipton (1941); Silver Knight (1971) sired Black Knight (1984).* Heaviest weights carried in the Cup:- Winners - Carbine 10.5 (65.5kg), Archer 10.2 (64.5kg), Poitrel 10.0 (63.5kg), Redcraze 10.3 (65kg). Others: Rising Fast 10.0 (65.5kg) 2nd, Eurythmic 10.5 (65.5kg) broke down, Phar Lap 10.10 (68kg) in 1931 8th, Peter Pan 10.6 (66kg) in 1935 15th.* Damien Oliver can join Harry White and Bobby Lewis as a four-time winner on Exospheric. Olivers winners so far are Fiorente (2013) Media Puzzle (2002) and Doriemus (1995).* In 2015, Michelle Payne became the first woman to ride the winner of the Melbourne Cup when she steered the Darren Weir-trained Prince Of Penzance to a famous victory.Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
