Goldie looking pained: Disappointment for region's field athletes

Newmarket's Goldie Sayers failed to qualify for the Javelin final at the World Athletics Championships earlier.

The athlete had battled back from long term injury problems and was competing with a heavily strapped knee.

She managed a throw of 58.28m but it wasn't enough to see her through to contest for a medal.

In the morning session, there was similar disappointment for Olympic bronze medallist Robbie Grabarz.

The St Neot's athlete, who was also suffered long-term injuries since London 2012, failed to make the high jump final. The 27-year-old was the only British athlete in action, clearing 2.22 and 2.26m at the first time of asking.

However, Grabarz failed three times to make 2.29m, leaving him outside the top 12 and ending his hopes of a place in the final.

“It’s really positive that we have such depth and options to choose from. Selection wasn’t easy and it is tough to leave anyone out but it’s important to stress that the players not in this group are still part of our wider squad and could come in at any point."

Wolves have confirmed that they've turned down a third offer for their striker Benik Afobe from Norwich City.

The Canaries are keen to land the 22-year-old before the transfer closes next week - despite Wolves insisting that he's not for sale.

Afobe has scored 16 goals in just 26 appearances for The Championship side since moving to Molineux in January.

"Wolves can confirm that a third bid from Norwich City for Benik Afobe has been immediately rejected.

The Club's position remains unchanged."
