    Want to know more about the team TNS are playing in their Champions League qualifier tonight?

    Their home ground is called Stadio Fonte Dell'Ovo (pictured above), which translates as "egg castle stadium" and they've made it to the Champions League qualifying rounds twice before.

    They've also played in the Europa League qualifiers twice before.

  9. Shrewsbury tennis club using Wimbledon fortnight to promote sport

    The Shrewsbury Club is aiming to get 1,000 children to visit its tennis centre during Wimbledon fortnight, to encourage them to take up the game.

    BBC Shropshire

    Shropshire Council is making a fresh attempt to settle the future of Church Stretton library.

    A previous attempt to move it to a new site was abandoned in April, after a legal challenge by local residents who wanted it to remain where it is.

    The authority says it wants to "ensure the long term sustainability of the library" and that a final decision isn't expected until the autumn.

  11. Wrekin MP wants good negotiator as next Conservative leader

    Andrew Hewkin

    Newsreader, BBC Shropshire

    The MP for the Wrekin, Mark Pritchard, says the next Conservative party leader must be someone who can negotiate a good deal from the EU.

    Referring to last week's referendum, the Conservative back-bencher said the priority shouldn't be "whether they were an Inner or an Outer", but whether they could unite the country and the party.

  12. Watch: Campaigner opposing HS2 says Brexit could endanger project

    There are concerns about delays to the HS2 rail line from London to the West Midlands. 

    A new report by the National Audit Office says the scheme is over budget and calls on the Government to look at ways of reducing the cost.

    Joe Rukin, from the Stop HS2 campaign, says last week's Brexit result could bring the project's demise.

  13. Champions League: Only one previous win for TNS opponents

    BBC Sport

    They might be the champions of their nation, but TNS's Champions League opponents, Tre Penne of San Marino, haven't got the greatest record in European competition.

    They have won only once in eight previous games. That was against the Armenian side Shirak in the second leg of last season's Champions League first qualifying round.

    The sides meet in the second leg in San Marino on Tuesday, 5 July, and the winners will face Apoel Nicosia of Cyprus in the second qualifying round.

  16. Champions League: TNS expecting a slow passing game from their opponents

    TNS head coach Scott Ruscoe has been doing his homework on their Champions League opponents, Tre Penne, ahead of tonight's qualifier.

    He says the San Marino champions have "technically good players" who favour a "more passing build-up with not a lot of pressing going on".

    Ruscoe says his team will try to play their own game and win both legs, but they can expect the pace of the game to be slower than they are used to.
