Jim Clark cancellation blow for Kelso businesses

The Chairman of the Scottish Rally Championship has said that the cancellation of the Jim Clark Rally will have a significant impact on businesses in Kelso.

The rally, which was due to run on Sunday 4th June, provides a major boost to local businesses in the hospitality sector.

However, organisers made the decision to cancel the event due to insufficient entries.

Championship chairman Dave Robson said every effort was made to assist organisers with making sure the event would run, but that offers of financial help were declined.

Carlisle United's manager says he's aiming for a big improvement on last season's 10th place finish in League Two.

Keith Curle added two players to his squad yesterday.

He's targeting more signings, and says the players he's looking at need the same ambition as him.

I need to be successful, and there's a difference between needing to be successful and wanting to be successful.

This season is about us continuing our progression, which means we need to finish well above where we finished this season.

– Keith Curle, Carlisle United Manager

England cricket star's childhood club recovers from the floods

Cockermouth Cricket Club has played it's first game at home, since being flooded in December.

England cricket star, Ben Stokes, learned to play at the club - which was inundated with water when the River Derwent burst its banks.

We're back on our home ground, fourth week in. We didn't expect that. In 2010 after the 2009 floods, we didn't play at home the whole year.

Back then Keswick very kindly allowed us to play at their ground for half a season. So it's a massive bonus being able to get back on here so early."

– Alex Grainger, Player at Cockermouth Cricket Club
