Team GB off to strong start

Team GB got off to a strong start last night as the Women's Ice Hockey World Championship kicked off at Dumfries Ice Bowl.

They beat New Zealand 8-1 in their opening match, a positive start to their campaign.

And the team's coaches, who are twin sisters, want the winning streak to continue, claiming that there's only one medal that they're targeting in this year's tournament.

Other results from the day included Poland winning 10-3 against Croatia, and Kazakhstan beating Korea 2-0.

Queen of the South has announced that manager James Fowler has signed a contract extension that will see him stay at the club until the end of next season.

The Board has said it's very happy with the job he has done since taking over from Jim McIntyre last September, and that the move will give the club stability over the summer and into next season.

The Manager himself claims he is grateful to be able to extend his stay.

"I'm really happy to sign again, it's been an enjoyable year although very difficult and hard work but it's one I've enjoyed and I'm thankful to the Chairman and the rest of the Board for the opportunity"

Carlisle United Trust in crunch meeting over £1.26m investment

Members of the Carlisle United Trust are meeting today about a potential £1.26 million investment in the club.

The Trust is voting on whether to reduce their shareholding from 25.4 per cent to 10 per cent to allow businessman Andrew Lapping's investment proposals to go ahead.

The move could pave the way for Mr Lapping to bring up to £1.26 million into the club.

If the Trust does not approve the new arrangement, Mr Lapping, who is being backed by several local businessmen, has said he would "walk away" from investing in the club.
