Football League: High hopes for Dons and Hatters

Geoff Doyle

BBC Three Counties Radio sport

MK Dons go into the new League One season with hopes of promotion (the bookies have them as fifth favourites).

Manager Robbie Neilson left his summer signings quite late, but looks to have done shrewd business with loan signings - notably Ethan Ebanks-Landell from Wolves andAaron Tshibola from Aston Villa.

The defence and midfielder look pretty strong, but with Chuks Aneke injured until September the attack looks a bit light.

In League Two, Luton Town must have a huge chance after losing out in the play-offs last season and making significant signings in the summer.

The recruitment of striker James Collins and midfielder Alan McCormack are the key ones. Considered joint favourites, The Hatters need to do their talking on the pitch – no excuses is the mindset, so there’s pressure on them to get off to a good start.

Stevenage have added a bit more youth to their team as Darren Sarll wants to see more energy from his side.

It's meant some of the senior players have left and some of the ones who have come in have a non-league background so it will be a bit of a gamble.

The Borough probably over-achieved last season in nearly making the play-offs and if they repeat that again not many fans would be complaining.

It’s been a fairly quiet summer for Wycombe Wanderers.

The loss of Aaron Pierre will be felt although Adam El-Abd is a useful replacement.

Wycombe will rely on a fairly ageing squad, particularly in attack, but they won’t want too many injuries as, once again, it's a thin squad. Play-off would be a good achievement for the Blues.

Tollgate Village development given go-ahead by government

Stuart Bailey

BBC News

A new multi-million pound retail and leisure development in Stanway will go ahead after a government minister overturned the decision of local councillors.

Colchester Borough Council says the £70m Tollgate Village development threatens the future of town centre traders and puts a strain on local roads.

The plans had been rejected twice, but an appeal by the developers has now been approved by Sajid Javid, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, following an appeal.

Artist's impression of Tollgate Village.
Tollgate Village

A Colchester Borough Council spokeswoman said: "By allowing this major retail proposal outside the town centre he is undermining the whole local plan process and threatening local democracy.

"Since the appeal we have seen a number of town centre stores close, citing the threat of Tollgate Village as a deciding factor.

"Our concern now is that this decision will precipitate economic stagnation in the town centre which could see shops and restaurants lose trade, begin to close or move out of the town centre altogether."

Tollgate Partnership Limited said in a statement: "This is a good day for our town and we want to thank the huge number of people who have supported us; it means the world.

"We hope the next phase of the planning process will proceed quickly and efficiently in order for us to deliver Tollgate Village."

Harry Bunn will not be joining Ipswich Town

Graeme Mac

Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy has given his first pre-match press conference of the new football season, and has told us that he is "hopeful" of making a new signing in the coming days.

However, Huddersfield winger Harry Bunn (pictured) will not be joining the ranks at Portman Road.

"I'm not going to make too much of it, but we're hoping to get somebody," McCarthy said.

"We've been spinning plates all summer and lots have been falling on my head. Hopefully this one doesn't.

"We've been linked with hundreds of players of every nationality and creed and colour. Harry Bunn was one of them.

"He's available, and I like Harry Bunn, but it's not him."

There will be full FM, AM and DAB commentary of Ipswich Town's opening match with Birmingham City on BBC Radio Suffolk tomorrow, with Matchday getting under way from 14:00.

Billericay FC cheerleaders 'not fired', says club

Helen Burchell

BBC News

If you're a fan of cheerleading, you might have been disappointed to read a number of stories about Billericay Town FC's new squad being fired before they'd even begun cheering.

Club boss Glenn Tamplin tweeted to say he'd had to let "The Ricays" go "as the lads were becoming unfocused", the Sun reported.

Tweet from Glen Tamplin

Apparently the footballers were a little distracted by the new all-female cheerleading squad which Tamplin had only employed the previous week.

Nicky Hayes/BTFC

However, non-league Billericay FC has been in touch to tell us the cheerleading squad's still going strong.

So, why the tweet?

"One of the girls in the team messaged a player saying, 'Let's hook up'," spokesman Nicky Hayes told us.

"The player mentioned it to Glenn and he thought it was more trouble than it was worth so decided to axe them.

"Then he met with the head cheerleader and told her she would need to fire the girl if The Ricays were to continue."

The woman was duly fired and the Ricays cheerleading squad remains at the football club, Mr Hayes confirmed.

They will make their debut appearance in a friendly at home to a West Ham United XI on Tuesday.

Ipswich Town: Hopefully we'll forget last season's drudgery

Brenner Woolley

BBC Radio Suffolk sport

While owner Marcus Evans has loosened the purse strings ever so slightly this summer, further wise investment is still required if Town are going to be markedly different to last year, when they finished in their worst league position for over half a century.

Terry Connor and Mick McCarthy

Mick McCarthy with his right-hand man Terry Connor

The club's failure to adequately replace striker Daryl Murphy continues to hold them back almost 12 months on from his departure to Newcastle United, while the exit of defender Christophe Berra this summer will be felt more than many predict.

New midfield signings Emyr Huws and Tom Adeyemi look good bits of business, although neither has kicked a ball in pre-season and won't be at their best for some time.

A less cautious approach from boss Mick McCarthy would be very welcome, trusting in the undoubted talent of England youth international Andre Dozzell and allowing others the luxury of playing with a bit more freedom.

If that happens we'll hopefully start to forget the drudgery of 2016/17....

Two men who saw a man jumping from the Bascule Bridge in Lowestoft this morning jumped into the water themselves to try to save him.

Police were called at 08:40 when a driver saw a man jump into the water.

The coastguard said two men jumped in shortly afterwards to try to rescue him.

A lifeboat was sent to the scene and helped bring the men to safety.

All three were taken to hospital as a precaution and police say the response was a "team effort".

'Celebration day' held for amputees in Suffolk

Stuart Bailey

BBC News

A charity that supports amputees and their families is holding a "celebration day" at RAF Mildenhall.

Steel Bones was set up by Emma and Leigh Joy-Staines after Leigh lost his leg in 2008 in an operation that went wrong.

Emma said: "Since the amputation and having children we have found it very difficult to find support groups or other friends in such situations.

"It is quite a lonesome disability, there is a lack of understanding in the general public and government as to what amputation means for an individual and a family."

They hope to bring together amputees and offer advice on health, inclusive sports and career opportunities.

Bartosz Bialkowski: McCarthy still the man to lead Ipswich

Graeme Mac

BBC Radio Suffolk sport

Ahead of tomorrow's season opener against Birmingham City, goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski has been telling us that Mick McCarthy is still the right man to get Ipswich Town back on track.

Bartosz Bialkowski
BBC

The Blues finished a disappointing 16th last time around and lost 6-1 away at League One side Charlton in their final pre-season friendly of the summer last weekend.

The players will be keen to make amends, and a good start is undoubtedly crucial in terms of improving the atmosphere and morale around Portman Road.

McCarthy has indicated that had last week's match at the Valley been a league game, there would have been suggestions at full time that he had lost the dressing room.

Bialkowski says that any claims the squad have already turned their back on the Yorkshireman are wide of the mark.

"That is not the case at all. He is a top manager and probably the best I have worked with," the 30-year-old confirmed.

"He's proved it in the past. He has taken teams into the Premier League, and we are not going to get a better manager at this time.

"I guess in a way we are not playing for him, because we are playing for ourselves and our families, along with the club and the badge. But we are not playing against him at all."

Town kick-off at home to Birmingham City at 15:00 tomorrow.

Excessive drinking blamed for rise in flight disruption

Stuart Bailey

BBC News

Police at Stansted Airport removed 57 drunk or aggressive passengers from planes last year.

That's up from 42 in 2015 and 22 in 2014, according to figures obtained by the BBC.

Ch Insp Richard Phillibrown, from Essex Police, said: "Sadly a handful of people are spoiling the enjoyment of the vast majority by drinking excessively at the airport.

"We work closely with the airport operator, licensees and the businesses here to encourage responsible and appropriate behaviour."

Former pilot Terry Tozer said passengers who've been drinking can be a serious problem: "They can be extremely disruptive and potentially they're a hazard.

"The Air Navigation Order is very clear - it is illegal to be drunk on an aircraft."

Rarely-spotted butterfly... spotted in Norfolk!

Stuart Bailey

BBC News

One of the country's rarest butterflies has been spotted at Sheringham Park.

Your best chance of seeing a Purple Emperor in the UK is in larger woodland areas in southern England.

But the National Trust says there have been two sightings in tree tops at Sheringham in recent weeks.

The National Trust's butterfly specialist Matthew Oates said: "At Sheringham Park the National Trust is looking after the sallows the butterfly favours.

"Recently, people have worked out how to look for this elusive giant, which is why it's been discovered at Sheringham.

"I'm delighted that Norfolk has declared itself well and truly Purple."

The Butterfly Conservation charity's website says it is difficult to record the size of the Purple Emperor population, but they are usually only found in woodlands in south and south east England, and Norfolk is the furthest north they have been found.

A spokesman said there had been a long-term decline since the 1970s, but strong signs of recovery in the last 10 years.

A disappointing campaign last time around, coupled with an embarrassing friendly defeat at Charlton last Saturday, has left many supporters more disillusioned than in previous summers.

But the 30-year-old from Poland, who gets his fourth campaign under way as Birmingham City visit Portman Road this weekend, is urging them to stick with the team and manager Mick McCarthy.

"There are always question marks before the season starts," Bialkowski told us. "But as a fan you just need to get behind the team and the lads and show them support.

"Obviously we played some football last season that was not entertaining, but we are trying to change that.

"Take the Charlton game away and all the other pre-season games have been good. We have played some good football and scored some good goals."

Farm installs vending machine to stop egg thefts

Stuart Bailey

BBC News

A family-run egg farm near Wymondham has had to install a vending machine because so many people were abusing its honesty box system.

Cavick House Farm had been relying on customers to pay the correct amount - but that was costing them about £150 a week in stolen eggs.

Egg vending machine
Annabel Barber

Julie Barber, who runs the farm, said: "We ran the honesty box for about seven years in our little egg shed.

"We have 16,000 free range hens producing eggs for supermarkets but, to try and boost our income a little, we decided to try and sell them from a shed.

"But in the last couple of years the figures haven’t been adding up.

"It is a shame, but we wanted to keep selling to our loyal customers and we thought we’d turn a negative into a positive and keep the egg sales going by installing a vending machine."

After losing their unbeaten home record last Thursday, the Witches then wrongly sacked two riders at the weekend.

"It was brilliant, I couldn't have asked for anything more, we had to overcome a really tough test," said team manager Ritchie Hawkins.

Danny King (pictured) top scored with 14+1 while Rory Schlein weighed in with 11 points.

Sadly the win came at a cost for Ipswich, with Kyle Newman suffering ligament damage to his left foot in heat one - ruling him out of Sunday's pairs event in Peterborough.

Norwich City's sporting director Stuart Webber has said that the club want to sign another midfielder.

That comes after his appearance on BBC Radio Norfolk's show - The Scrimmage.

The Canaries travel to Fulham tomorrow for the first game of the Championship season with a new-look team after the shake-up at the club over the summer.

Harrison Reed and Mario Vrančić have already been recruited by Webber for midfield cover, but that doesn't seem to be enough.

Webber said: "We'd certainly like to add another midfield player. Daniel [Farke - head coach] likes to play three in there and the squad is already stretched so we need numbers."

Bialkowski could see out career at Ipswich Town

Graeme Mac

Bartosz Bialkowski has been speaking to us ahead of Ipswich Town's first match of the new Championship season, and his words will be music to the ears of pretty much every Blues supporter.

Bartosz Bialkowski
BBC

The 30-year-old goalie, who has been Town's Player Of The Year for the past two seasons, has given his strongest indication yet that he will be going nowhere before the transfer window closes.

This despite the Pole attracting interest from other clubs, and having ambitions to play in the Premier League.

"There has always been some interest, but nothing formal and nothing on the table, and I am fully focused on playing for Ipswich," Bialkowski said.

"I'm not going into the manager's office and asking for a move because I love every single minute of my time at Ipswich and playing for the fans.

"My family don't want to leave Ipswich, they want to stay here forever and I'm the same."

The Polish national was then asked whether he could see himself ending his career in Suffolk:

"Of course! I live in a great area with fantasic people around me and I don't need to change that."

Birmingham City are the visitors to Portman Road on Saturday, with an 15:00 kick-off.

East of England Ambulance Service worker Barbara Shreeve was on a night shift in Loughton when she spotted a man driving a car "erratically".

She managed to stop the driver and called for back-up at the incident last October.

She has now been presented with a Certificate of Merit from Ch Supt Rachel Nolan, of Essex Police, for pulling over the man who was later charged with drink-driving.

Ms Shreeve said she was "surprised" to receive the award.

"I’m sure anyone would have done the same as he was swerving over the other side of the road," she said.

Ch Supt Nolan said: "I want to praise Barbara’s quick-thinking and courage to stop the vehicle. Her actions may well have prevented tragedy."

"Craft should not be left there and it is not fair on others who pay to use the sailing club facilities.

“Notices have been put on a number of dinghies and one sailing boat and they have been given two weeks to remove them.

“If the owners do not do so, then the council will move in and take them away.”

Bid to stop lead thieves targeting county's churches

As we've been reporting, a new scheme has been launched to help combat the continued number of lead thefts from the Norfolk's churches.

Here are some cases when thieves have struck:

  • In October last year, St Nicholas Church in North Lopham was preparing to put on its knitted bible display when thieves stripped half the lead from the roof during the night
  • St Bartholomew Church, Sloley, near North Walsham, had its lead stolen just days after Christmas 2016
  • Lead was stolen from the roof and a window at St Mary's Church in Baconsthorpe in April. St Mary's Church in Northrepps was targeted in the same month
  • Raiders stripped lead from Little Massingham Church, near King's Lynn, in January for the third time.
