Player of the match Sadie Wilson-Blakely reflected on her goalkeeping heroics for Chi City Ladies against Liverpool - and said the match had been an experience to cherish. The City stopper excelled herself to keep out a number of Reds efforts and said the whole team had enjoyed playing in front of a crowd of 1,300. Wilson-Blakely said: “Usually coming out of a game like that you would take 3-0 but I honestly think we could have pushed them a bit more. There were bits in the game, especially in the first ten minutes, where we pushed them. I’m a bit disappointed we didn’t capitalise on that.” See the full interview, above, and don't miss Thursday's Chichester Observer for special coverage of the big game.

The Chesterfield branch of the RSPCA is trying to find a loving home for a 'special' and 'genius' pooch. The German Shepherd called Blue is 11-months-old and loves cuddles and having her belly scratched. The RSPCA said: "For baby Blue we are looking for an owner who is accustomed to the breed’s idiosyncrasies, their oddities and their undeniable Shepherd-ness. But she is so very worth it. "Coming into our care, originally, as little more than a puppy, Blue has had an unfortunately eventful first year of life. At an early stage in her life where consistency and the foundations of training are so important, she has been through a lot of change. Shepherds, more than most, struggle to cope with upheaval and Blue is no exception. But, in spite of it all, her bright spirit shines strongly still. Her smile can light a room, her eyes can thaw the thickest of ice, her heart holds you to her like flame-drawn moths. "She loves cuddles and having her belly scratched, physical contact of any … [Read more...] about VIDEO: Can you give a home to this loveable pooch?
Kodi Slater, eight, only took up football a few months ago, after the devastating loss of the grandfather he helped care for. He was a champion kickboxer, competing since the age of four, before discovering a new passion and joining the Street Kings football organisation, based in Telford. Before long he came to the attention of the national Football Flick company, and last week they produced a video for their social media pages telling Kodi's story. Kodi explained that his shift from kickboxing to football came naturally to him. He said: "When I started kicking a ball my dad would challenge me at new tricks and shooting at targets. I would be patient and keep practicing until I accomplished each challenge/ trick. "When I found myself improving at football I started to realise how much I enjoyed it. My kickboxing skills have come in very useful at some of the tricks I’ve learnt and it makes me extremely happy the more I achieve and the more fun I have. "When my dad realised … [Read more...] about Watch: Telford kickboxer kid’s football skills make him a video star
The late Carrie Fisher even did interviews in French. Photo: AFP VIDEO: Here's a collection of celebrities who have mastered the language of love... But how fluent are they really? Carrie Fisher Yes, Fisher, who died at the age of 60 on Tuesday, spoke impressive French indeed with a fantastic accent. Here's a 1977 clip of her talking about Star Wars. We give her a 9/10, only losing a point for throwing in the occasional English word. Tom Hiddleston British actor and heartthrob Tom Hiddleston caused quite the stir when he slipped into French while talking about his character of Loki, from the movie Thor. He only had to ask for help with one word "deep down", which we admit is a tough one. And his accent was impressive. So, although a little refresher on his vocabulary mightn't go amiss, we give Hiddleston a 8/10. Johnny Depp Although Johnny Depp didn't ever get around to marrying his French ex Vanessa Paradis, it seems that he did manage to pick up some language lessons … [Read more...] about VIDEO: Did you know all these stars spoke great French?

You could almost set your watch by it. The Perseid meteor shower is an annual event, about as regular as Christmas. The precise dates can vary depending on the relative positions of the Earth and the sun or if it's a leap year, but it's reliable. So we're as certain as science that the Perseid meteor shower peaks this Friday, August 12, and for more than a week we can expect to see spectacular things like bright lights and shooting stars in the northern night sky. These shooting stars, as magical as they may appear to be, are caused when the Earth passes through a stream of dust and rocks - meteoroids - left behind by the comet Swift-Tuttle as it orbits the sun. When you see a shooting star, you're seeing a meteoroid clash with the Earth's atmosphere and then burning up. This causes a short-lived trail of light called a meteor. The lucky ones survive our atmosphere and land to become meteorites. It fascinates us year in, year out. "The Perseids have a large number of bright … [Read more...] about Shooting stars: What we know and still need to find out about the Perseid meteor shower
