Gazza returns to management
FOOTBALL: Troubled former England star Paul Gascoigne has been appointed manager of non-league Garforth Town.

Gascoigne, who has battled drink and drug problems, lasted just 39 days in his last managerial role at Kettering five years ago.

But the 43-year-old said: “I feel strong right now. For me personally it’s a big challenge. It’s whether the players want to join me in that challenge.”

Robertson beats Ronnie in final
SNOOKER: World champion Neil Robertson ruthlessly swept Ronnie O’Sullivan aside 5-1 to claim the World Open in Glasgow.

The Australian punished O’Sullivan’s errors to win a sixth ranking title and underline his status as world No1.

O’Sullivan said: “He’s world champion and world No1, and he dispatched me like world champions and No1s do.”
