Newmarket trainer Charlie McBride has been fined by the British Horseracing Authority for entering the wrong horse in a race at Great Yarmouth.

McBride, who's based at Exeter House Stables, said it was a genuine mistake when three-year-old filly 'Millie's Kiss' was installed for the race for two-year-olds last month and won at odds at 50-1.

The horse was supposed to be stablemate Mandarin Princess, but the mix-up was only discovered after Millie's Kiss was scanned.

McBride was fined £1,500 and the horse was disqualified.

Getting more women on the water as more sailors needed

Sailing clubs across the East of England want more women sailors to come forward.

The names Ellen McArthur and Sarah Ayton are probably well known but many may struggle to identify other top female sailors.

Sailing clubs across the East of England are trying to rectify that by encouraging more girls and women into the sport - and more importantly - keeping them.

Around 80% of adult sailors are men. For some reason most of the women who take to the water in their early years don't return to the sport.

Luton Town have signed forward Harry Cornick from Premier League side AFC Bournemouth for an undisclosed fee.

The 22-year-old has agreed an initial two-year contract and becomes the Hatters' ninth signing of the summer so far.

Cornick has previously enjoyed loan spells at Yeovil Town, Leyton Orient and Gillingham.

I've been an admirer of Harry’s for many years now. We tried to get him last year but it wasn’t possible, so when we knew he was available this time, we went straight into him.

Fair play to the board, they’ve backed me once again on another signing which will provide extra competition in the attacking area.

He had a number of offers, but chose to come here so we are delighted and are looking forward to working with him.

Peterborough United have seen off interest from Championship sides to sign young Irish goalkeeper Conor O’Malley from St Patrick's Athletic for an undisclosed fee.

The 23-year-old reportedly attracted attention from the likes of Leeds United, but decided to join Posh instead.

O’Malley has agreed a two-year contract at the ABAX Stadium and will compete with Jonathan Bond for the number one shirt.

I am delighted to have him on board.

Without me sounding like a broken record and saying loads of clubs were after him, it is the truth.

There were Championship clubs in for him and I am really pleased he has decided to join us and look forward to working with him.

– Grant McCann, Peterborough United Manager
