Sheffield Eagles are leaving Owlerton Stadium after just one season due to new RFL ground regulations. The Championship side moved there for the 2014 season after it was announced that their former home, Don Valley Stadium, was going to be demolished.
Improvements were made to the ground to bring it up to standard but the lack of floodlighting means it is unable to accommodate evening fixtures for Sky TV.
The club is hoping to make an announcement on where it will be playing next season as soon as negotiations are concluded and approved by the RFL.
Doncaster-born Andy Butler has signed a loan deal with Doncaster Rovers. The defender is joining the club from Sheffield United. Butler will go straight into the Doncaster squad for this weekend’s clash with MK Dons, as Paul Dickov’s side look to record a first win in three matches.
Leeds president Massimo Cellino's court trial in Sardinia for tax evasion has been delayed.
The trial was due to take place on Thursday, but the judge has had to step down due to a conflict of interest.
Judge Dr Sandra Lepore convicted Cellino for failing to pay tax on his yacht Nelie in March and cannot hear the second case involving another yacht, Lucky 23.
Cellino was fined around £400,000 for the earlier conviction.
The appeal judge who overturned that decision ruled that if Judge Lepore confirmed in her written report that the tax evasion in the Nelie case had been a deliberate act of dishonesty then Cellino would fail the League's 'owners and directors' test.
Judge Lepore has since stated there was "elusive intent" and "Machiavellian simulation" by Cellino and the League is under mounting pressure to force him to sell the club.
The League has yet to receive a copy of Dr Lepore's report and, it is understood, has no right to request a copy.
Lincolnshire is preparing to host the British Cycling Championships.
The routes for the four day event in June were announced today and organisers hope to attract star names like of Bradley Wiggins, Chris Froome and Laura Trott, as well as a hundred thousand visitors.
A Leeds United player is at the centre of an alleged racism row tonight after squaring up to a Norwich striker during their Championship match last night.
The Football Association has confirmed it is investigating allegations surrounding the clash between United defender Giuseppe Bellusci and Cameron Jerome. The match referee has sent a full report to the FA as David Hirst reports.
Former Sheffield United footballer Ched Evans has released a video statement less than a week after he was released from prison after serving a sentence for rape.
Leeds owner Massimo Cellino has defended Giuseppe Bellusci as the Football Association investigates allegations of racial abuse against the defender.
Norwich striker Cameron Jerome complained to referee Mark Clattenburg that he was verbally abused by the 25-year-old Italian midway through the first half of their 1-1 draw with Leeds on Tuesday following a confrontation between the two players.
The FA confirmed it is looking into the incident, but the summer signing from Catania has received the full backing of his countryman Cellino.
Bellusci is no racist, I spoke with him and he said 'you must be joking, I said nothing like this to him (Jerome).'
He is surprised by this. He is shocked.
I don't allow racists at this club and I won't allow racists at this club ever. If one of my players is a racist, I'll kick his a**e and kick him out before the FA has a chance.
Bellusci says he spoke (to Jerome) in Italian. I don't know if he (Jerome) speaks Italian too but Bellusci swears to me he said nothing racist.
He was p****d off, sure, because he got hit in the neck and the face but he denies anything racist. I believe him and and I'll support him. I'll write to them to clarify my position on Bellusci and racism. If any Leeds player was shown to be a racist, he'd be out. That's my philosophy and my promise.
Jerome said on Twitter he would not publicly reveal what was said to him but that the FA would deal with it.
The FA Cup Trophy is in Grimsby today ahead of the Mariners' qualifying match.
They play Guiseley at Blundell Park on Friday in the competition's Fourth Qualifying Round.
A group campaigning against racism in football say they have offered Cameron Jerome "support and any assistance he may require" after it was claimed the Norwich striker was racially abused by Leeds defender Giuseppe Bellusci.
Kick It Out says it is waiting on the outcome of an FA investigation into the claims:
Kick It Out is aware of an allegation of a racist remark made towards Norwich City striker Cameron Jerome by Leeds United defender Giuseppe Bellusci during yesterday evening's Championship fixture at Carrow Road. The FA has confirmed that it is investigating the incident, and we have been in touch with Norwich and Cameron to offer him our support and any assistance he may require. We now await the outcome of The FA’s investigation.
The Leeds United Supporters Trust says it hopes that allegations against defender Giuseppe Bellusci are resolved "quickly, accurately and fairly."
The Italian has been accused of racially abusing Norwich City striker Cameron Jerome in the teams' Championship tie this week.
The Leeds United Supporters' Trust condemns all racism in football without hesitation.
Leeds United fans have been at the forefront of fighting discrimination in the game - proven by LUST's long-standing support of the Kick It Out campaign - and they will rightly be concerned by the serious allegations made by Cameron Jerome.
However, Giuseppe Bellusci is entitled to the full FA / Football League process, which we hope will be resolved quickly, accurately and fairly. Until the outcome of that process, it is not right for the Supporters Trust to comment further.
