It’s been announced that a superstar field of golfers will take part in the Farmfoods’ British Par 3 Championship, with major winners Ian Woosnam and Michael Campbell amongst those who are set to compete in golf’s “ultimate challenge” alongside stars including former Senior PGA champion Fraser Mann, European tour winners Jean Van De Velde, Scott Drummond, Jarmo Sandelin and Mark Mouland.

Business ambassadors and corporate partners of Midlands Air Ambulance Charity attended its annual Corporate Golf Day at JCB Golf & Country Club. The sold-out event was sponsored by Phoenix Group and helped fund 27 lifesaving missions for the charity.

With all proceeds going towards the charity’s vital pre-hospital emergency service, the eighth annual Golf Day raised an astonishing £42,000, the most raised for this event so far. The fundraising total has helped fund 27 lifesaving missions carried out by the charity’s advanced clinical team, 13 by air ambulance and 14 by critical care car.

The Great Britain and Northern Ireland team got off to the perfect start at the World Para Athletics Championships in Paris as Gavin Drysdale and Rafi Solaiman won gold and silver respectively in the men’s T72 100m.

Drysdale won a second world title of his career, and he was pushed all the way to achieve it by European champion Rafi Solaiman who matched his silver medal winning display from 2019. The duo take home the honours in the new FrameRunning event to start GB & NI’s march at the Championships.

Ashes hero Matthew Hoggard has encouraged England players to be smarter when it comes to “Bazzball” to boost their chances of beating the Aussies. The former England fast bowler hinted that England could still win the Ashes as he spoke out on the controversial stumping of Jonny Bairstow. 

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Champions UK, Hoggard said: “Bazzball is running towards the danger instead of away from it. You take the positive option rather than the negative option. I like it but still think we've gone too far at times. 

England won the European Under-21 Championship for the first time in nearly 40 years after a dramatic last-minute penalty save by James Trafford ensured the Young Lions held on to beat Spain. Trafford, who is set to join Burnley from Manchester City in a deal that could be worth up to £19m, kept out Abel Ruiz's low spot-kick in the 99th minute after a lengthy VAR check.

The 20-year-old then produced another brilliant stop on the follow-up before being mobbed by his team-mates. The winning goal came with virtually the last kick of the first half when a Cole Palmer free-kick deflected off team-mate Curtis Jones and wrong-footed goalkeeper Arnau Tenas to find the bottom corner.

American trio Noah Lyles, Fred Kerley and Erriyon Knighton will join Zharnel Hughes (GBR) in a sensational men’s 200m line-up at the London Athletics Meet on Sunday 23 July. Two-time world 200m champion Noah Lyles, Olympic 100m silver medallist Fred Kerley and world 200m bronze medallist Erriyon Knighton add star power to what will be a fast and furious contest at the London Stadium.
