"Tell the chef, the beer is on me."
Sue Lister, coordinator of the festival for the over-50s, has appealed to event organisers to consider what they can do to foster the wellbeing of the city's older residents. "How can they bring people together to share activities that they may enjoy and may take up for the rest of the year?" she asked. "How can we involve people who are feeling lonely and isolated and depressed? How can we make York a better place to grow older?" She said Age UK had claimed that one million older people in the UK hadnt spoken to anyone for a month. That is unacceptable in our city," she said. "What are we going to do about it? Sue said she had started the first festival in 2005 with the idea of celebrating the experience, skills, knowledge and memories that older people had to share with younger people. "There was already a world-wide annual celebration on October 1 of International Older Peoples Day, with many cities round the UK already mounting their own festivals," she said. "As a city of festivals", York was ready and willing to add one more and the 50+ Festival has grown over the years until last year it offered 130 events for people of all ages to enjoy young people working with older people, and older people offering events for younger people. "It proved a way to bridge the generation gap and was enjoyed by around 5,000 people of all ages." She said this year's festival would begin as usual with an information fair to be staged from 10 am to 3pm on Thursday September 10, with 30 stands at the Guildhall, six at the Spurriergate Centre and another six at St Sampsons Centre.

Blackpool, who were in the Premier League in 2010-11, were the first professional English team to be relegated this season, back in early April. They have declined badly since their one season in the top flight, when they were much admired for their attacking football under Ian Holloway. The Tangerines turned over more than 100m since their promotion. Three seasons later and they had just six first-team players when Jose Riga arrived as manager in early pre-season. Only eight professionals were under contract two weeks before their first Championship game at Nottingham Forest. Despite signing 12 players in 12 days, they only had nine men eligible on the morning of the game and eventually named a four-man bench. Owner Owen Oyston and chairman Karl Oyston sued three fans for comments made on the internet, with football fans from around the UK raising the 20,000 needed by one of them for his damages bill. The chairman is being investigated by the FA for allegedly breaching five FA rules by sending abusive and insulting words to a Blackpool supporter. A statue of legendary ex-player Stan Mortensen - where fans reportedly planned to protest this weekend - has disappeared. A spokesman for the Tangerine Knights and Blackpool Supporters' Trust, which organised the pre-match protest, said: "Karl Oyston said 'judge me at the end of the season'.

The visitors, who resumed on 115-3, saw Matt Machan dismissed for 80 before losing their last four wickets for 10 runs and were 265 all out. Chris Rushworth (5-81) took his second five-wicket haul of the season. Needing 262 to win a second successive Championship game of the season, Durham closed on 115-2 with Matt Stoneman making 41 and Keaton Jennings 38. Rushworth amongst the wickets Durham's Chris Rushworth has taken 19 first-class wickets this season, the second-highest behind Ajmal Shahzad (Sussex) who has taken 22 so far. Ajmal Shahzad (2-40) took both wickets, trapping Stoneman leg before and having Jennings caught behind by Ben Brown. Earlier, Machan was fifth wicket to fall when he was out lbw to Usman Arshad (2-43) and Sussex's innings quickly fell away. Looking well set on 217-4, they were quickly dismissed for 265, with first-innings hero Ollie Robinson ending on four not out. John Hastings (2-57) took the wickets of Steve Magoffin and Matthew Hobden in successive balls to wrap the innings up. Durham seam bowler Chris Rushworth: "We knew we needed quick wickets after lunch and to wrap them up like that was a big plus. "There's a bit of variable bounce but it's a good pitch and the scores are about par.

Discussions are taking place over a 14-team Premiership, with a temporary freeze put on promotion and relegation. Baxter says he supports expansion as long as second-tier clubs are able to aspire to top-flight status. "The only opinion I have is to ensure we are morally correct in everything we do," Baxter told BBC Radio 5 live. "I would be very uncomfortable if we established a set of rules whereby a team that was successful on and off the pitch could never have the ambition of being in the Premiership." Premiership Rugby say as part of the new proposal clubs would be eligible for promotion if they prove their worth on and off the field over a period of time. However, with a handful of the elite clubs losing money year on year, Baxter has urged against hypocrisy. "As long as we don't enforce rules on teams trying to get into the Premiership that we're not prepared to enforce on teams who are already in the Premiership - and there are quite a few cases of that - then we have quite a strong moral argument that it is good for the game," he said. And Baxter is adamant that well-run Championship clubs should still be able to achieve promotion in the same way the Chiefs did in 2010. "As long as we sort those things out first and we create a structure that does allow for the development of teams outside the Premiership and success outside the Premiership - and there is a way for them to get into this 14-team Premiership - then I am pretty comfortable with that," Baxter continued.

"Basically the price of a night on the town!"
"I'd love to help kickstart continued development! And 0 EUR/month really does make fiscal sense too... maybe I'll even get a shirt?" (there will be limited edition shirts for two and other goodies for each supporter as soon as we sold the 200)
