FROM today your News Shopper sports coverage has been extended with an extra page now available to bring you the news and views on local sports.

Behind the scenes, efforts to reshape the inside layout of the paper to enable an extra sports page to be included have been successful.

So, at last, we will be able to include regular news of Crystal Palace Football Club and London Towers bastketballers, as well as broadening some of our existing coverage. But we are always very keen on the human interest, grass roots sporting stories.

So, if you have a story you think is worth including, call me on 01689 885722 or my senior reporter Roger Wright on 01689 885720.

Alternatively, you can email me at: or Roger on the same address but prefixed by rwright
