Football bosses insist the FA Cup will be completed this season - even if the Final has to be in September. The news comes after the FA took the unprecedented step of expunging all football seasons in England below the three divisions that make up the National League, meaning there will be no promotion or relegation. But the FA are desperate to hang onto their flagship competition - despite the fact no-one knows when the remaining rounds will be able to take place.

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Texas Tech kicker Jonathan Garibay is bypassing his final season of eligibility, opting to declare for the NFL draft after making the longest game-winning kick in FBS history and being the most accurate field goal kicker in school history. Garibay kicked a 62-yard field goal on the final play of Tech's 41-38 win over Iowa State on Nov. 13. That was the longest kick for the winning points ever in an Football Bowl Subdivision game with less than a minute remaining. That was the longest field goal in Texas Tech history, and longest for a Big 12 kicker since 1999. That winner was among his school record 13 consecutive made field goals to start this past season. He finished 15-of-16, a 93.8% success rate that led the Big 12. His only miss was when he pushed a 53-yard attempt wide left on the final play of a 27-24 loss at Baylor two weeks after his 62-yarder. Garibay, who redshirted in 2019 season after transferring from Riverside City College in his home state … [Read more...] about Record-setting Texas Tech K Garibay into NFL draft
Concerned, confused, even a little cranky. That best sums up the mood of Team GB hockey skipper Hollie Pearne-Webb when asked to ponder the potential post-coronavirus damage to women’s sport in Britain.

Smaller budgets are inevitable. Barely a day passes without a governing body warning huge cuts in future investment will be an unavoidable consequence of COVID-19. However, one thing Pearne-Webb, 29, is hacked off hearing during these trouble times is that female sport in the UK will be hit even harder than male sport. Any such suggestion leaves the stick-wielding superstar perplexed and agitated. Whether cricket, football or her very own hockey, she argues girls must still receive the same support from grass-roots level upwards as the boys. That means slashed budgets have to be … [Read more...] about Women’s sport will survive in Britain despite damaging effects of coronavirus pandemic
