Warwickshire County Cricket Club and Birmingham City Council have formally launched a bid to the Government’s Levelling Up Fund for a new Masterplan to transform Edgbaston Stadium and support the surrounding community.

Following the disappointment of a group-stage exit at the CAF Africa Cup of Nations earlier this year, Milovan Rajevac was dismissed as Ghana coach, with Otto Addo named as his successor on an interim basis. The former midfielder, who won 15 caps for his country as a player, wasted no time in guiding the Black Stars to FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ qualification and, as a reward, will lead them at the tournament.

Newcastle Eagles managed to get their first win of the season, with a hard fought display against Nottingham Wildcats. Although the Geordies didn’t start the game on the front foot, they played tenacious defence and managed to battle their way to a well earned W.

The game started with Notts well on top, with Kayla Shaw absolutely lighting it up from behind the 3-point arc, shooting 3/3 in the first four minutes.

The UK government will invest around £60 million of underspend from the Birmingham 2022 budget in the West Midlands to enhance the legacy of the brilliant Commonwealth Games hosted earlier this year. The fund will aim to increase access to sport and culture, boost the West Midlands’s reputation as a world-class host for major events and drive inward investment and tourism.
