Troop numbers shrink despite
record 100k trying to join up
Ad . . but recruitment is failing
By DAVID WILLETTS
THE Army is being crippled by a
manpower shortage — despite a
record
number
of
would-be
recruits attempting to join.
More than 100,000 tried to
sign up last year but only 7,500
became soldiers — with thousands dropping out in frustration
after getting bogged down in
months of red-tape delays.
Sources say the blockage comes
from a “disastrous” decision to
outsource recruiting to private firm
Capita, and leaves the Army
more than 4,000 short of
the 82,000 troops it is
meant to have.
One said: “The numbers are staggering.”

A GROUP of respected
academics have set up a
new website to debunk
the myth that Brexit
voters are all “idiots”.
The brainboxes — who
include university professors at Oxford, Cambridge and London — say
they are fed up with
anti-Brexit propaganda.
They include academics
from both the Left and
Right and are led by
economist
Dr
Graham
Gudgin
and
historian
Prof Robert Tombs, both
of Cambridge University.
Prof Tombs, who says
he is from a workingclass background, added:
“You can’t just write off a
large part of the population as being unworthy of
consideration.”
The group — which also
includes Oxford theology
professor Nigel Biggar,
ex-MI6 chief Sir Richard
Dearlove and Cambridge
history professor David
Abulafia — said attempts
to reverse the Brexit vote
would “outrage democratic
sovereignty, cause dangerous dissension and make
the UK a laughing stock”.
Their website is briefingsforbrexit.com
The move by Britain’s
top academics follows the
formation of Artists 4
Brexit in Camden, North
London, last week.

lArmy chiefs slammed
over recruitment debacle
System failed . . . Dannatt
By DAVID WILLETTS
Defence Editor
SAS veteran Andy McNab
yesterday said the Army’s
failure to sign up enough
new
soldiers
despite
record numbers of wannabe recruits was “absolute madness”.
Official figures show that a
record high of around 100,000
people tried to join last year
— but fewer than 7,500 eventually became soldiers.
Thousands
of
those
who
dropped out did so in frustration
at red tape and delays — with it
taking an average of 300 days
from first contacting the Army to
finally becoming a soldier.
Sun Security Adviser Andy said
the overly bureaucratic system
introduced after recruitment was
outsourced to private firm Capita
is to blame. He added: “How you
can go from over 100,000 trying to
join to less than 8,000 signing up
defies belief.
“It’s because the Army and Capita have turned recruitment into a
faceless, bureaucratic nightmare.”
It has left the Army, already
pared to the bone by defence cuts,
with a manpower crisis.
It needs to recruit 10,000 a year
to balance those leaving. But
insiders say it currently has fewer
than 78,000 troops — more than
4,000 short of its 82,000 target.
Andy said: “The Army is in a
crisis — and it’s not because no
one wants in.”
Business experts Capita were
hired in 2012 to run recruitment
for the Ministry of Defence in a
£1.3billion deal.
It set about “modernising” the
system — with online recruitment
and call centres replacing the tradition of having serving officers in
high street recruitment offices.
The latest recruitment advertising campaign, designed to attract
more women and ethnic minority
candidates, was also criticised for
being “too politically correct”.
But the Army’s ads have been
an undoubted success. In the 12
months to the end of March 2016,
58,000 tried to join up. Up to
March 2017 it was at 100,560.
But while the adverts have

lThousands drop out as

worked, the recruitment system
changes have backfired.
Insiders say the average 300-day
wait between first approaching
the Army and finally becoming a
soldier is far too long.
Some of that is down to medical
and security checks. But, they say,
there is also excessive red tape —
and the long delays end up putting off would-be recruits.
Former Army chief General
Lord Richard Dannatt said the
recruitment changes had been an
abject failure.
He said: “I’ve heard of a number of people who have been try-
ing to join the Armed Forces and
got fed up at the length of time it
takes. The system is too complicated, the Army knows the previous system was better and would
like to go back to it.
“The reason why it’s not being
done is because it’s too expensive.
“The Army at 82,000 has never
been
smaller
since
modern
records have been kept.
“At 78,000 we’ve hugely undershot the current level — which
itself is too small. Ten years ago it
was 102,000.”
Army insiders said an overhaul
of recruitment is now looming.
r
Long delays . . Army recruiting poste
The call centre and online applications system will remain but a
new initiative to put soldiers back
in recruiting offices is pending.
A source said: “The ad campaigns have been more successful
than anyone could have hoped.
“But we’re not getting the end
product, we’re not getting soldiers
in the ranks. You can blame Capita but this is still a partnership
with the Army.
“The key thing is people are
aware and are doing something to
remedy this. It will get fixed.”
Every year about a third of
Army applicants are turned away
for being too old, too unfit or failing educational standards.
But just 8,600 were signed up in
the 12 months to March 2016. In
that period 10,626 left — leaving a
shortfall of around 2,000.
In the 12 months to last September 101,854 tried to join but
only 7,441 were successful. In the
same period 9,718 left — another
year-on-year shortfall.

said the Army must set a three-month

He added: “The MoD and Capita

time to really acknowledge that and
stop pretending it would be OK. Faceto-face dialogue with young soldiers
and potential young recruits is crucial.
“To have a target of around three or
four months seems pretty sensible.
“Certainly it needs to be a lot less
than the 300 days it currently is. You
can’t afford to let these people slip
through your fingers.”
MP Johhny Mercer, an ex-Army
officer, said: “The offer the military
gives is as appealing now as it has
ever been and that is borne out by the
figures. But something is going wrong
between the offer the Army gives and
people doing their first day’s service.
“The Army shouldn’t be undermanned when you see the numbers
trying to join. It also seems to be a
colossal waste of money.”

The
glitzy
awards
were
dominated by the decision for
women to wear black in
support of the Time’s Up
movement
against
sexual
harassment in the industry.
But the Duchess of Cambridge
and a handful of stars opted out,
with Kate going for a green Jenny
Packham dress.
British veteran Oldman, 59, beat
off competition from Daniel DayLewis and newcomer Daniel Kaluuya to bag his award.
It was the third he has received
for the role, following prizes at the
Golden Globes and the Screen
Actors Guild Awards — and makes
the Londoner a favourite for an
Oscar, ahead of Call Me By Your
Name star Timothée Chalamet.
As Mexican actress Salma Hayek
introduced his win, she joked he
had been beaten by Three Billboards star Frances McDormand
before adding: “Nah, just kidding.”
When Gary collected his award
he thanked his family — and Winston
Churchill himself. He
said: “In his darkest
and most uncertain
days in 1940 he held
the line for honour,
for
integrity
and
freedom
for
his
nation and the world.
So thank you, Sir
Winston. Thank you,
the Churchill family.
“This is made all
the
more
special
because I can share it
with my family. Without your help, without
your faith in me, I
would not be here.”
But he also hinted
that retirement is “on
the horizon”, although
he added: “I’m going
to keep going for a
few years, God willing.” Frances McDormand, 60, was
named Best Actress — and was one
of the few female stars who
shunned black.
As she accepted her award, she
said: “I’ve always had a problem
with conforming, but I stand in
solidarity with my fellow actresses.
“I also want to say I appreciate a
well organised act of civil disobedience and am thrilled activists all
over the world have taken to the
streets and be a part of public discontent that’s happening.”
Earlier protesters had disrupted
proceedings. The women, wearing
DARKEST
T-shirts aimed at the PM saying
Time’s Up Theresa, lay across the
red carpet and locked arms. Stars
including Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Lawrence stopped to find out
what they were protesting over.
Three Billboards, about a mother
calling attention to her daughter’s
unsolved murder, won five prizes
in total including Best Film —
beating Darkest Hour, Call Me By
Your Name and Dunkirk.
The Shape of Water, a fantasy
film about a lonely janitor’s relationship with an amphibious creature, scooped three trophies.
Daniel Kaluuya took home the
EE Rising Star award for his role
in Get Out — previously won by
Star Wars’ John Boyega and The
Revenant’s Will Poulter.
Alison Janney, 58, won Best Supporting Actress for her role as ice

LaVona in I, Tonya.

Insiders believe Kate, who had a

But one guest at the showbiz bash

In his foreword to the official programme Prince William appeared to

THE questions about Jeremy Corbyn’s
dealings with foreign spies and diplomats
must be properly answered.
We’re used to the Labour Party
dodging basic questions on the
economy or defence but this is a
different kettle of fish.
Corbyn’s supporters claim it happened
a long time ago or rubbish our story as
“fake news” — conveniently ignoring the
documents we published.
The BBC haven’t been much better.
They have either ignored the story or
laughed it off as the latest harmless
episode in the colourful adventures of
Jolly Jezza, rather than another
example of his terrible judgment.
The Labour Party moderates, whose
backbones deserted them some time
ago, have been equally silent.
We doubt that would be the case if
Theresa May had met up with British
nationalists
or
the
anti-Mandela
factions in South Africa.
If Corbyn has nothing to hide about
his dealings with Eastern Europe’s
vicious secret police forces, he has a
simple way of proving it. His Stasi file is
buried in a German archive and only he
can give the OK to release it.
As his Soviet pals used to say:
Papers, please.
Force for good
THE Army are making their own
recruitment crisis worse.
Troop numbers are at a dangerous low
and yet thousands of keen recruits are
put off joining by call centres, formfilling and bureaucracy.
That’s not good enough. Military
bosses have a duty to get those who
want to sign up into training as quickly
as possible.
This needs fixing – and fast.
Brexit backers
FIRST the artists, now the boffins.
A throng of university academics have
broken cover to back Brexit, after actors
did the same last week.
We’re not surprised. After the
pompous claptrap spouted by EU
Parliament bigwig Guy Verhofstadt
yesterday, any thinking person would be
counting down the days until we leave.
All Brussels cares about is the
European project — not democracy and
not the people of Europe.
Better off out.
Cheers for all
SO, Granny was right – “everything in
moderation”.
New studies claim a couple of pints a
day aren’t going to kill you.
That’s worth remembering when the selfappointed high priests of the nanny state
threaten us with plague and pestilence for
even looking at a wine glass.
Jezza march to No10
has been Czeched
JAN SARKOCY, exposed by
The Sun last week as a
Czech spymaster, describes
Jeremy Corbyn with laserlike accuracy as “honest
but stupid”.
In the face of all the facts,
Corbyn has a long and blinkered history as an apologist for
Britain’s bloodiest enemies.
“Agent COB” has nothing in
common with Harry Enfield’s
Tim Nice-But-Dim but, for
Sarkocy, he was a good spot.
His protege rose by accident
to become Leader of HM
Opposition and last year came
within shooting distance of
No 10.
True, this spy caper was “a
long
time
ago”.
Millennial
voters who almost swept him
to power last June are blank
sheets of paper and will surely
be bored by the youthful indiscretions of OAPs like Jezza
and “Red Ken” Livingstone.
But this is not ancient
history.
Neither
man
has
budged an inch from his
hard-line hatred of capitalism,
Western values and Britain’s
history as a world power.
Mr Sarkocy’s job as a
Czech agent was to scout for
“sleepers” who could be
activated
once
they
achieved high office. He
was a shrewd operator.
Back then, few would have
put money on an obscure
backbench rebel like Jezza.
Soviet
Czechoslovakia
no
longer exists today. But Corbyn
is now Labour leader and
fellow Marxist John McDonnell
is Shadow Chancellor. Living-
stone may have fallen off the
radar but he was twice Mayor
of London, one of the world’s
greatest cities.
Despite their protests of
outraged innocence, none of
them could have been unaware
of Sarkocy’s true role.
In the 1980s, every so-called
“diplomat” working for Russia,
China or their satellites was an
active spy.
As
The
Sun’s
industrial
correspondent
in
1980,
I
encountered the agent, who
acted openly as liaison officer
for the Soviet bloc.
Ardent communist
Sympathetic

KGB spies were everywhere.
The
mightiest
trade

Jack
Jones,
was
a

Kremlin
informer.
Labour
leader Michael Foot accepted
Russian roubles.
“COB”
would
have
been
really stupid to believe Sarkocy
was a mere civil servant.
Nor were he and Diane
Abbott innocent young lovers
when they rode a motorbike
around East Germany in the
1970s — out of bounds to
all
but
the
most
ardent
Communist fellow travellers.
We
eagerly
await
Stasi
records of their trysts.
Memories were still fresh of
the 1968 Prague Spring when
Russian tanks crushed Czech
protestors under their tracks.
The world knew tens of
millions of civilians had been
tortured, jailed and slaughtered
in the name of communism. It
didn’t put Jezza off.
The leftie firebrand might
have been what the Kremlin
described as a “useful idiot”,
but he was no teenager.
In the years since, he has
learned nothing and forgotten
nothing.
Capitalism is a sin. Property
is theft. America is the mother
of all evils. Britain is the
Devil’s spawn. Any enemy of
REMOANERS smear Brexit voters as old, thick and racist.
Now a group of Oxbridge academics and economists,
enraged by George Osborne’s Project Fear lies, has launched a
fightback.
They cannot match the EU cash pouring into
Remoan coffers or the £400,000 from billionaire
George Soros. But nothing is more powerful than
an idea whose time has come.
So sign up and add your support at briefingsfor
brexit.com.
On a similar theme, Irish ex-ambassador Ray Bassett
has broken cover and condemned his country’s support for the
EU against Britain as “a very big mistake”.
The worm is turning.
Britain was by definition the
Loony Left’s friend.
Corbyn was in lock-step with
Gerry Adams, mouthpiece of
IRA killers who slaughtered
innocent British civilians — and
still is.
Today, he also embraces
terrorist organisations such as
Hezbollah and Hamas, speaks
up for the murderous mullahs
of
Iran
and
frequently
appeared on Russia’s “fake
news” channel, RT.
Under his leadership, Labour
is now the Marxist Momentum
Party.
Voters are not stupid
Do we really think young
voters care nothing about this
and are blithely ready to sweep
Corbyn into power?
Voters, young or old, are not
stupid. We can’t take opinion
polls
too
seriously
but,
astonishingly after last year’s
election surge, Labour is now
trailing
the
divided
and
squabbling Tories.
We have almost certainly
seen Peak Corbyn. Political
parties rise and fall — notably
the Lib Dems, the SDP, Ukip
and now, gradually, the SNP.
But in a country as openminded as Britain, revelations
about Soviet spies, Momentum
thuggery,
sexist
bullying
and shocking anti-Semitism
eventually take their toll.

EXCLUSIVE by NICK PISA
A SKI Brit was plucked
to safety from a glacier
with his schoolgirl daughter after rescuers spotted
her bright pink jacket.
Gary Raine, 55, had got
lost with 13-year-old Natalie at 9,000ft in Italy.
The pair were taken by
helicopter to safety after
they survived a night in
-15C temperatures.
Last night they were
back home in Bristol,
where
computer
programmer Gary told how
they kept moving to stay
warm.
He said: “My daughter
was the real heroine.
“She kept walking for
16 hours because I knew
if we stopped we would
be in trouble.”
Their hotel near the
Presena Glacier, close to
Italy’s border with Austria, reported them missing when they failed to
return for dinner.
Gary said: “When I saw
the helicopter I just burst
into tears.
“I was stupid. We went
the wrong way at the top
of the glacier.
“I can’t believe how

Study reveals secret to longer life
From SHAUN WOOLLER in Austin, Texas
TWO beers a day and a few
excess pounds are the secret
to living longer, scientists say.
The glasses of beer, or wine, cut
the risk of dying young by a fifth.
Weight gain in later life makes an
early death three per cent less likely.
Two cups of coffee daily and 15 minutes of exercise — even a brisk walk —
cut premature deaths by 10 and 11 per
cent respectively.
Two hours of non-sport hobbies such
as gardening, reading or crafts slashed
risk 21 per cent.
A US team analysed data on 14,000
volunteers aged 55 to 100, tracking
them for up to 37 years.
University of California Prof Claudia
Kawas said: “People should try to incorporate these daily habits to give
themselves the best chance
of living to a ripe age.
“At 60 or 70, it’s a good
thing to gain weight — 5 to
10lbs a decade. Underweight
people had a 50 per cent
increase in mortality.”
But she warned: “It does not
guarantee the extra years will
be healthy ones.”

Bridge 3
By DAVID WILLETTS
SPOOKS were watching
the London Bridge terrorists as they set off to
carry out their attack.
MI5 officers monitoring
ringleader Khuram Butt
saw him load a van at
his East London flat two
hours before, sources say.
But they did not order
cops to stop them as Butt
was no longer a priority.
Butt, Rachid Redouane
and
Youssef
Zaghba
killed eight by mowing
down
pedestrians
and
knifing others last June.
Butt had been a “subject of interest” to MI5
since mid-2015 and was
watched round the clock.
He was later downgraded but was still the
subject of a “live investigation”, says a report by
the Government’s ex-independent
reviewer
of
terror legislation David
Anderson QC.
This means key locations such as his flat
were monitored. Inquests
into the attack start next
year at the Old Bailey.

And more than one in three of
his 1,636 pictures were blurred.
Steph, 29, fumed: “There were

the

than
anything else.
“He took pics
of one’s breasts
and
bum.
I

is no accident.

But she said: “He didn’t turn

“And he just sent pictures via
disk after I complained. A lot
were angled and wouldn’t look
right in a frame.
“He caused so much heartache.
I’ll do anything to stop him
doing this to anyone else.”
She and Paul, 30, won a £601

The snapper, of Middleton, Gtr

said he had now quit weddings.

chemo anyway but that treatment
did not work so Belinda went in
for surgery in 2014 at London’s
Royal Marsden Hospital.
She added: “It was a 15-hour
operation. They opened up my
face and drilled through my teeth
and jaw to get to the cancer.
“I was left with a scar running
down my chin and neck and
back up to my ear. Doctors told
me I wouldn’t be able to talk or
able to eat, but I beat the odds
on all of them. I eat, I drink.”
Belinda was settling back into
normal life when a year later,
in December 2015, the cancer
returned. This time the prognosis
was even worse.
She said: “This time it was on
my lungs. They just had to
monitor its growth — there was
no treatment available.
“Four months ago I had my
latest scan, they found cancer in
two places in my spine, in my
sternum and back in my face.
The doctors say there’s nothing
they can do for me any more.
“It’s a horrible feeling — like
everyone has given up on you.”
But husband Carl, 48, did not
give up, and found out about the
Hyperthermie Bochum clinic near
Dortmund, which has had success
in curing her rare form of cancer.
‘My 12-year-old son
has been so good’
Bodyguard Carl explained: “We
have to send them a blood
sample, then they will hopefully
offer Belinda a bespoke treatment. We’re optimistic.”
The couple hope to send the
blood off this month. But if the
tests reveal treatment will not
work, Belinda will seek holistic
treatment in Mexico to extend
her
life.
Belinda’s
daughters
Nadia, 19, and Georgia, 26, have
known her prognosis for a while,
but it is only in the past couple
of weeks that she’s told her
youngest Ollie, 12, the full truth.
She says: “He’s a really sensitive
boy and it’s hit him hard. But
he’s been so good. He keeps offering to do everything for me. Even
at his age he’s so thoughtful.”
The treatment and aftercare
will cost £250,000, which Belinda
cannot afford — and this is where
her Page 3 pals stepped in.
As well as this shoot the group
is doing fun runs and bake sales
and have so far raised £14,000.
Belinda said: “I have such fond
memories of my Page 3 days and
we were like a family — a lot of
us stayed in touch.
“Tracey Elvik and Tracy Kirby
were the driving forces behind
setting up my GoFundMe page, I
can’t thank them enough.”
Loyal Tracey, 49, had tears in
her eyes when Belinda entered
the studio on Saturday in a red
satin gown, and whispered: “She
looks so beautiful.”
She revealed: “After the cancer
spread we looked into alternative
treatments and Belinda got quite
upset because of the costs.
“I suggested setting up a fundraising site but she said she
couldn’t ask people for money. I
told her, ‘Yes you bloody can.’ ”
Meanwhile Belinda found the
shoot a trip down memory lane.
She said: “Those days were a
total whirlwind. We had so much
fun — the travelling, the camaraderie. The whole thing was a
blast — a really wonderful time.
“It’s so lovely to relive it today

With an APR of 49.9 per cent
they will have to pay back £23,715

Party lad
knife kill
A LAD of 19 was stabbed
to death when two gangs
clashed
after
separate
house parties.
The teenager was with
four friends chased by a
mob of eight, with one
heard to shout: “Let’s
chase him down.”
He was set upon and
attacked, collapsing yards
from the late Freddie
Mercury’s old home in
Kensington, West London.
He died at the scene
around 3.30am yesterday.
A suspect, also 19, was
arrested and was still in
custody last night.
The victim is the fifth
teen killed in a stabbing
in London this year.

“I thought, ‘No, no, no, no’ .”
The Sun revealed last February that Kylie had ended the
romance after nearly two years.
The Aussie star, who has had
other failed relationships, says
it has put her off love and
ended any hope of having kids.
She explained: “It wasn’t the
right union.
“I’ve never been that girl who
dreams of walking down the
aisle. You dust yourself off and
go through that period of,
‘Never again, not going to do it.’
“How do you get over it?
You just do. But at my age you
do go, ‘What now?’ ”
Asked if she still wants
children, she said: “No, not for
me. Been down that road,
numerous times, as in, ‘Can I
make this happen?’ But no.
“Your destiny is your destiny.
If by some miracle I got pregnant . . . at this point in my life
— I wonder, could I even manage that? That’s not my life.
“It would be a lie to say
there’s not a bit of sadness

PLEA THAT GOT C
By
VICTIM WITH PA
A
MIKE RIDLEY
IT was the hardest letter
that Pauline Murrell would
ever write.
She was asking France’s Myra
Hindley for the truth about how
her daughter was murdered.
Twenty years earlier, a fisherman
had found the battered and naked
body of Pauline’s daughter, British
student Jo Parrish, in a river 100 miles
south of Paris.
Local investigators were convinced
that language student Jo, 20, had been
lured and then murdered by a
depraved husband and wife, dubbed
the French Hindley and Brady, who
were jailed for life a decade ago.
Just like Myra Hindley and Ian
Brady in the Sixties in Manchester,
SHE hunted down young victims for
HIM to rape and kill.
But French detectives had lost key
DNA evidence against Monique Olivier
and Michel Fourniret, and without a
confession the evil pair could not be
brought to justice for Jo’s killing.
So, in a three-page letter, Pauline
pleaded to evil Olivier — a mother
with three children of her own — to
reveal what happened to Jo in 1990.
Despite her anguish and anger,
Pauline politely wrote: “As one mother
to another, you are the only person
who can help us.
“Madame, I beg you to re-examine
your conscience and tell me the truth.
“I hope that you will be able to give
us a bit of the peace of mind that we
have been seeking for so long.”
Pauline received no reply. But last
week, eight years after she wrote the
letter, Olivier’s husband repeatedly
confessed to an investigating magistrate that he had killed Jo plus
another girl, Marie-Angele Domece, 18,
who vanished in 1988. And last night
sources close to the investigation told
The Sun that Olivier, now 69, had a
major part in persuading Fourniret —
dubbed The Ogre Of The Ardennes —
to confess to Jo’s murder.

One source said: “Monique Olivier
may not have replied to Joanna
Parrish’s mother but we believe that
letter certainly played on her mind.
“She was the one who pushed
Michel Fourniret to finally confess.”
Now prosecutors expect former electrician Fourniret, 75, and Olivier, who
are already in jail for seven murders,
to stand trial next year for killing Jo.
Yesterday at his home in Newnham
on Severn, Gloucs, Jo’s father, retired
civil servant Roger Parrish, recalled
his ex-wife Pauline writing the letter
to Olivier.
He said: “I don’t think the letter was
appreciated by Monique Olivier’s lawyers at the time and we never received
a reply.” Olivier’s legal team even
accused Pauline of provocation.
Pauline has said: “I thought that, as
a mother of three sons herself, she
would understand — that maybe she
would have the same parental feelings
as a normal person.
“That’s why I sent the letter. All
we ever wanted was the truth
so that we could move on with
our lives.”
Jo was last seen alive in the
early evening of May 16, 1990, in
Auxerre, where she taught English
at a local school as part of her
four-year modern languages course
at Leeds University.
She was going to meet a man who
had answered an ad she placed in a
local paper offering English lessons. Jo
never arrived for the 7pm meeting outside the Banque Populaire.
Police now believe she was abducted
in rush-hour traffic by Olivier, who
was cruising the streets in a van
looking for virgins for Fourniret to
defile and murder.
Described as “devils with two faces”,
the pair first came into contact when
Fourniret was in jail for sex offences
and Olivier answered a magazine
advert he placed looking for pen pals.
As they wrote, she fell under his
spell, calling him “my beast” and
Shere Khan after the man-killing tiger
in Kipling’s Jungle Book. Fourniret
offered to help former nurse Olivier by
murdering her two ex- hu sb a nd s
when he got out of jail. In exchange,
FAMILY . .

and Paulin

she agreed to help him find virgins.
When he was freed in 1987, Olivier was
waiting in her green Peugeot estate.
Fourniret never kept his part of the
bargain but less than two months after
his release, Olivier made the first sick
offering to her beast.
She
selected
timid
17-year-old
Isabelle Laville because she looked like
a younger version of herself. The white
Citroën van drew up alongside Isabelle.
Olivier asked for directions and
persuaded the girl to get in.

motorist who had broken down and

needed a lift. Olivier stopped the car
and let him in. Nearly 20 years later,
Isabelle’s body was found in a well.
The killings continued. The following
year Olivier, now heavily pregnant,
lured 20-year-old Fabienne Leroy into
the car by claiming she needed
someone to go with her to hospital.
Olivier examined the terrified girl to
make sure she was a virgin before
handing her over to Fourniret, who
raped her then shot her dead.
Once, they used their young son
Selim as bait, telling their victim they
needed a doctor for their child.
At other times they left him with a
babysitter and went on “virgin-hunting”
weekends.
Fourniret
claimed
he
needed to hunt virgins at least twice a
year. It is believed he tried and failed
to inject air into some of his victims’
bloodstreams to try to induce heart
attacks before strangling or battering
them to death.
Olivier admitted watching Fourniret’s
worst attacks from behind a two-way
mirror in their home, the Chateau of
Sautou,
in
Donchery,
north
east
France, and ignored the screams. She
later “re-enacted rapes” with her
husband, according to prosecutors.
‘Jo found herself in a dark
world so alien to her own’
Bodies of several victims were found
in the grounds of the property that
Fourniret had bought after swindling a
bank robber out of his ill-gotten gains.
But in May, 1990, the beast and his
accomplice were living in the village
of Saint-Cyr-Les-Colons, near Auxerre,
where Jo was working. Police believe
that after abducting Jo, they drove her
into the countryside where Fourniret
beat and strangled her before dumping
her into the nearby River Yonne.
The next day her naked body was
found three miles downstream.
The post mortem revealed small
slashes in the shape of a cross on her
forearm, identical to ones found on
some of Fourniret’s other victims,
including Fabienne.
Roger said: “Jo found herself in a
dark world so alien to her own.
“For a moment, good and evil
collided and there was only ever going
to be one outcome because that evil
was so powerful.”
A
13-year-old
girl
the
couple
abducted in 2003 escaped and gave
police the registration of their van. The
killing spree was at an end. Olivier
later admitted they had taken Jo but
then withdrew her confession. Without
solid forensic evidence, Jo’s parents,
who split up around the time of her
death, feared they would never learn
the truth. Now, with a confession, they
may finally get justice.
Roger said yesterday: “Seeing them
both in court for Joanna’s murder
would be the final hurdle.
“I’m slightly reluctant to use the
word closure because it will always
be there with us.
“Like all parents, we thought our
daughter would be with us throughout
our lives but her absence is unbearable.
“Our son, Barney, was just 17 years
old when he was confronted with this
horrible reality.
“We are now the grandparents of
three grandchildren and one day it
will be necessary for us to explain to
them what has become of their Aunt Jo.”

TOLL OF
TERROR
MICHEL FOURNIRET has so far
been found guilty of killing seven
women in north-east France.
The first victim, Isabelle
Laville, 17, left, was taken as she
walked home from
school in December
1987. She was
raped and
strangled. Her
body was only
found in 2006, in a
disused well.
Fabienne Leroy,
20, below, was lured
into Fourniret and pregnant
Olivier’s car in August 1988
when they pretended they
needed a doctor.
Next was Jeanne-Marie
Desramault, 21, second from
bottom, who lived in a
convent and met the
couple on a train.
She disappeared
in March 1989.
Body was found in
July 2004. She
had been
strangled.
The youngest
to die, Elisabeth
Brichet, 12, was taken in
December 1989 and
strangled. Her body was not
found until 2004.
Natacha Danais, 13, was lured
into the couple’s vehicle in
November 1990. She had
been on a family
outing but was sent
home to get her
mum’s purse. She
was stabbed twice
in the chest and
strangled.
Next, in May
2000, Fourniret
spotted student Celine
Saison, 18, below, and asked
her for directions. She got in his
car and was strangled. Her body
was found two months later.
Another schoolgirl, Mananya
Thumpong, 13, was then
spotted and befriended
by the killer, who had
decided: “I’m going
to take her.” She
was strangled in
May 2001 and her
body was found in
a forest the
following year.
As well as these
seven convictions,
Fourniret has now confessed to
killing Jo Parrish, 20, and
Marie-Angele Domece, 18, who
vanished in July 1988. Olivier
says he also murdered Farida
Hamiche, 30, in 1988.
Another girl, 13, was snatched
in Belgium in 2003 but escaped
by jumping from the moving car.

WHAT? Marcella, ITV, 9pm.
WHY? ANNA FRIEL returns
as the troubled detective. In
the opening episode of the
second series, Marcella is
called into action after the
discovery of a body found
hidden in a wall, dressed in
a school blazer.

JUNE GIVE
UP? DON’T
BE CIGGY!
THERE is no chance of
EastEnders’ Dot Cotton
giving up her notorious
smoking habit, even if it did
mean the clothes in the
launderette would stop
stinking of cigarettes.
Veteran actress JUNE
BROWN, who has played the
character since 1985, has
vowed never to quit her
20-a-day habit, insisting it is
one of only two pleasures in
her life.
The soap star is on ITV’s
four-part series 100 Years
Younger in 21 Days – which
starts next Tuesday at 9pm –
but she refuses to cut down
on smoking for the sake of
her health.
June, above, said: “I’m a
great reader so I have two
pleasures in life, reading my
Kindle to relax and smoking.
So I didn’t want to get rid of
one of only two pleasures
I’ve got.
“I’ve given up smoking
before, when I was 38, for
vanity reasons because I
read that it makes your skin
turn yellow.
“So I threw a packet of
cigarettes in the fire and I
didn’t smoke for a year.
“But you’ve got to have the
mental attitude to do that
and I don’t want to now.”
The show will see June
undergo odd treatments
including snail and wee
facials to reverse the ageing
process. The line-up also
includes HAPPY MONDAYS
frontman SHAUN RYDER
and Benidorm actress
SHERRIE HEWSON.
A face mask would
probably be less drastic.
IT’S a good thing Channel
4 newsreader JON SNOW
wears colourful socks, as
he is going to need something to brighten up his
new workplace.
The veteran TV host has
been left fuming after he had
to move into a “dingy basement” when the roof of his
usual office fell in.
I’m told the collapse was
due to renovation work at the
London building where the
programme is made.
A huge concrete
pillar fell on to
MY TEAM: Andy Halls, Hannah Hope, Rod McPhee and Benjy Potter
C4 JON IS FORCED OUT
BY ROOF’S COLLAPSE
the
floor
during
heavy
drilling, forcing a grumbling
Jon, inset, and his news pals
to
be
moved
into
the
unpopular new spot until
things are sorted.
A TV source said:
“Jon wasn’t best pleased
after he had to move.
“He and his colleagues are used to
being
in
their
usual spot, but
when the roof came in,
bosses had to relocate them.
“Everyone at ITN, where
Channel 4 News is made,
says the basement is dingy,
but Jon and co will have
to make do until their
usual office is fixed.
“It was lucky the roof
fell in over a weekend.
Had the office been
full of people, as it
is on weekdays,
LEONA’S
X ‘SPLIT’
SIMON COWELL was
furious when OLLY
MURS jumped ship from
The X Factor to
The Voice – and now
LEONA LEWIS is doing
the same.
The singer, left, who
won The X Factor in
2006, will join the rival
ITV show to mentor
JENNIFER HUDSON’s
team during the
knockout stage of the
contest next month.
A TV source said:
“Jennifer and Leona have
been friends for years
and they collaborated on
the song Love Is Your
Color in 2010.
“She knows Leona
will have good advice for
the contestants as she
has a talent show
background, too.
“Leona has sold more
than 20 million records,
so she knows what
makes a great star.”
Last year’s winner MO
ADENIRAN will also help
them out, while KYLIE
MINOGUE, CRAIG
DAVID and THE BLACK
EYED PEAS will advise
the others.
The guests wouldn’t
make a bad set of
coaches themselves.

IT is the moment of reckoning
for Aidan and Carla in
CORONATION STREET as they
are wheeled down to the
operating theatre.
And the other residents on
the cobbles aren’t in the best
of health either, with Eileen
warning Summer to stay away
from the flat because Billy has
the flu.
But when she does drop in,
she is shocked by the state she
finds him in, yet he still leaves
to meet up with his brother Lee
in the cemetery.
On EMMERDALE, Phil shows
his dark side when he admits
he knows that Tracy used to be
a sex worker and tries to
blackmail her.
He demands £1,000 to not
show the dodgy video to David.
That won’t end well.

SIMPLE FOODS:
TURKEY STIR FRY
YOU NEED:
3 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp Hi-PRO crunchy
peanut butter
1tbsp sweet chilli sauce
1tbsp raw peanuts, roughly
chopped
150g egg noodles
2 tbsp light olive oil, coconut
oil or vegetable oil
400g turkey breast steak,
sliced into strips
1 medium courgette, grated
75g baby corn (about 5
corn), sliced lengthways
75g sugar snap peas
½ red pepper, sliced
1 small red onion, sliced
2tsp sesame seeds
METHOD: To make the satay, mix the
soy sauce with the Hi-PRO peanut
butter and sweet chilli sauce – it will
need a thorough mix. Set aside.
Toast the peanuts in a dry pan for a
few minutes until golden, shaking
frequently to make sure they don’t
burn. Set aside. Cook the egg
noodles in a large pan of boiling water
according to packet instructions.
Drain and set aside.
Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a wok or large
deep frying pan and stir-fry the turkey
for 5 minutes until it is cooked
through. When done, remove to a
bowl and keep warm. Heat the
remaining oil in the wok or pan and
stir-fry the vegetables for 3-4 minutes.
Sprinkle in the sesame seeds,
return the turkey and the noodles to
the wok then stir in the satay sauce.
Heat through and serve with the
peanuts sprinkled over the top.

AS MANY STRUGGLE TO
WE all know that shopping for
jeans can be a bit of a minefield,
even from our favourite stores.
With no universal sizing guide
on the High Street, the fit
changes from one retailer to the
next. What is perfect with one
brand might be too big or too
small in another, despite having
the same dress-size on the label.

(Teal green T-shirt, £2, Primark;
jeans with frayed hems, £40, Debenhams;
green heels, £29.99, asos.com)
Melissa says: “These jeans are definitely a lot more
forgiving when it comes to size. They have a much
roomier fit than some of the others.
“They feel and look expensive but I’m not sure they
sculpt my shape perfectly. They don’t hug my bum like
some of the other jeans that I tried.
“However, on the plus side, the looser fit makes me feel
thinner. So that is good!
“And as they are comfortable and good-quality, I would
consider buying them. We all need a pair of jeans in our
wardrobe that isn’t skin-tight.”
Melissa says: “The only way I could do up the top
button on this pair is if I seriously suck in my
tummy. There’s no way I could walk around in these
all day. They feel far too uncomfortable.
“Though I liked the look and style, they just didn’t
fit me around the waist, so I’d have to up-size if I
was to buy a pair.
“I’ve not bought jeans from Debenhams before
but struggling with size is not new to me and can
be upsetting. It’s the variety of styles and fabric that
make them fit differently.”

the overall fit is perfect. They are snug
on my waist, sculpt my bum and don’t
suffocate my legs. I can move freely in
them without restriction.
“I like the high-rise style too. These
are perfect for summer. I’ve bought
several pairs of jeans from River Island
in the past and they have always been
a snug fit that have lasted.”
Melissa says: “I’m not sure about this pair.
They are super-fitted on my legs and thighs
but I have to suck my tummy in to do them
up. There is no way I could eat a big meal
wearing them – I’d have to undo the button!
“They are a bargain price but I doubt
they’d last very long. Worth adding to your
basket to wear now and then, but they
would lose their figure-hugging fit if worn
daily. You can tell the fabric will stretch.”
Melissa says: “I couldn’t wear these –
they’re far too big. I can stretch the
waistband out so far, you could fit
another person in here with me!
“I like the slightly frayed hem and
shade, though. If I bought these, I’d just
have to drop down to a size ten.
“I didn’t think I’d find a size-12 pair that
were too big. Usually, it’s the other way
round. I’m surprised.”

STEPGIRL
STOLE TO
BUY PAIR
OF SHOES
Dear Deidre
MY 17-year-old stepdaughter
has been using my debit card
to shop online. She came to
live with her dad and after
falling out with her mum.
I am 39, my husband is 43.
She asked him for designer
shoes for Christmas and he
said they were too expensive.
The next thing, the shoes
arrived for her. When we
questioned it, she said she
had got a bonus at work.
Then my bank statement
arrived and that exact
amount had gone out to an
online retailer. I got the
money back but now what?
0 DEIDRE SAYS: Even with
proof, accusing her would
only create more issues.
This is not the behaviour of
a happy girl.
You and her dad need to
sit down with her and stay
calm and understanding.
Say you were upset to
discover the cash missing,
that you understand how
important the right kit can
feel at her age but you
wouldn’t want her to get
herself into trouble.
Maybe offer her jobs she
can take on round the home
to earn some extra cash.
Try to be open to her
sharing any worries with
you. Find support through

we ended up having

I have been with my partner for
two years and we love each other.

We have recently talked about

For
his

a country pub. There was lots to
drink and things were going well.
Then my boyfriend said he
wondered if we would still be
together in 25 years.
I was upset he could have any
doubts and asked him why he

he was only joking and told me
not to be so childish.

RUINING
MY LIFE
Dear Deidre
I WANT to find a girlfriend but
I had a motorbike accident
two years ago, at 19, that left
me with scars down one side
of my face.
Since then I have lost all
confidence with girls and
though I used to love going
out with mates, having dates
and playing football, I now
hardly go out at all.
I met a girl online and we
went on a date. She asked
about my scars and wanted a
closer look. I hate looking at
them myself so I refused.
She said it was nothing to
be ashamed of but I got
rather angry. She walked out.
Now I can’t bring myself to
go out with anyone.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: Physical
changes can make us think
others will see us
differently, but you are still
the same person you were
before your accident.
That girl didn’t walk out
because of your scars – you
got angry, which probably
felt scary.

I HAVE met a great woman but
I am worried I’ll lose her due to
my erection problems.
I am fine when I masturbate
but I sometimes struggle to
even get aroused when I am

always been like this.
My penis isn’t exactly large –
five inches when erect – which
I think is part of the problem.

fabulous woman. She’s 36
and has a high sex drive. To
satisfy her, I have been using

followed me. He is 34 and was
really kind and gentle.
He told me not to worry, that
most couples have rows and we
could sort it out.
It was cold outside and I started
shivering. He put his arms round
me to warm me up and suddenly
we were kissing.
We found a quiet spot in the
pub garden out of sight of the
others and had sex but I felt
terrible afterwards and so did he.
I now feel so guilty and think I

the fact you have a good sex

would

He said that he would kill

What should I do?
0 DEIDRE SAYS: You need to decide
what is right for you and your
relationship, regardless of his cousin’s
emotional blackmail.
We can all make mistakes when we
are drunk and confessing is not always
best. It would ease your conscience
but it would wreck your boyfriend’s
trust. If he could not forgive you, you
might lose him.
His cousin might be right that it
would ruin relationships in your
boyfriend’s family. You could end up
feeling a whole lot worse.
It was a stupid mistake but best learn
your lesson from this so you never do
it again. Maybe watch the alcohol but
also think how you could have avoided
such a stupid row.
Are you over-sensitive? Is your
boyfriend needlessly touchy?

Impatient Mars, maverick Pluto and you: this could be your
new formula for success, especially when performing for a
tough audience. Romance is tantalising but a friend’s new
love interest would be perfect for you. Luck for the whole
family begins by a door from a movie set.
As the sun races to the top of your chart, you surprise yourself
by being more ambitious than ever. Instead of just adding a
touch of genius to a team, you become the natural choice to
be captain. Love-wise, Pluto matches you with a former
neighbour who now has a claim to fame.
Innovative Uranus helps you make your working life less of a
chore. This upturn starts as a newcomer with strong opinions
joins your group. Speaking of love, a relationship begins in a
low-key way but is soon full of emotion. Accept that a family
won’t always understand, but will always care.
You are ready to direct the action, both at work and socially.
Refuse to be held back by people who can’t, or won’t, make up
their minds. When it comes to love, your truth sensors are
extra strong so you know whose feelings are genuine and
who finds promises too easy to forget.
You are very adaptable with daring ideas. These come into
play as you take significant strides towards success. When it
comes to love, you and a partner learn more about each other
and marriage plans could be made, perhaps for a third time.
Elegant gates lead to a lucky place.
Your sense of style and easygoing charm hides how
ambitious you are. But your talent is set to be unleashed,
whether you want to be the boss of a company or the star of a
talent show. You can have more romance AND more respect,
but will it make you happy? “J” names are lucky.
Talent grows stronger as the sun visits the luckiest part of
your chart. Clever Mercury ensures you use your skills. What
starts as a fun flirtation in two languages can grow into so
much more. Already settled? Follow through on smart ideas
for a spare-time business.
Home and family life are at the centre of the action and when
you focus on the future, it can all happen for you. As a love
partnership reaches the settling-down stage, you could be
swapping two single homes for one shared one. Looking for
love? You meet at a furniture exhibition.

Mind planet Mercury dives deep, helping you think and talk
about yourself positively. You recognise your strengths and
what you need to work on, and this opens up new ways to earn
a living. As for love, Venus unlocks your partner’s secrets

Finding time to work on your own projects is a winner and
when you feel happier, so do those around you. As the sun
makes you the zodiac’s best communicator, words you write
could launch a career. If you have to choose between two
relationships, stay calm and take all the time you need.
It’s all about the money and getting more of it can be worth
the upheaval. Working away from home revives passion by
making reunions so intense. But if more money means doing
a job you hate, figure out how long you need to do it for so you
are in control of your future.
For the next 28 days, you will be the most loved-up and
luckiest sign, as the sun makes you its top priority. Dream
jobs, new lifestyles and relationship changes are all possible
– but Venus advises you to be kind to the ones you turn down.
You find a family talent on the race track.

TEMPLEGATE’S TOP TIPS
GO the right Way in Kempton’s 8.20. WESTERN
WAY (nap) is a stayer who’s in great nick. Don
Cantillon’s nine-year-old has won his last two starts in
grand style and looks some way ahead of the handicapper. Adam Kirby is unbeaten on him and they can continue their 100% record.
LUNA ECLIPSE (7.20 Kempton, nb) has untapped
potential. Andrew Balding’s three-year-old
shaped with plenty of promise here last month and
starts life in handicap company off a workable mark.
He should take all the beating.
GRANVILLE ISLAND (3.00 Carlisle, treble) won
with a bit up his sleeve in a better race at
Uttoxeter last time. Jennie Candlish’s 11-year-old will
handle today’s conditions and comes here with plenty
in his favour.

Risky for
Christie
From DAVE KIDD
ELISE CHRISTIE will make
a decision on her fitness
tomorrow morning as she
attempts to salvage her
Olympic dream.
Britain’s world champion
short-track speed skater,
yet to medal at a Winter
Olympics, was taken to
hospital after injuring an
ankle while crashing out
of her second event here,
Saturday’s 1500 metres.
That leaves only the
1,000m, with the qualifying to be held tomorrow
for the finals on Thursday.
Christie, 27, tweeted a
picture on an exercise bike
with a message “trying
hard to turn this around”.
Team GB’s Mike Hay
said: “Nothing is broken,
she has soft tissue damage to her right ankle. It’s
how the injury responds.”

Lizzy gets busy knitting after gold
From DAVE KIDD
THERE was plenty of
needle surrounding the
skeleton
competition she is never happier than
when she has a nice cup
here in PyeongChang.
of tea and a ball of wool.
Needle over British skinsuits which brought accusations of cheating.
Needle over funding of a
supposedly ‘elitist’ sport.
And needle over Russian
needles used in statesponsored doping.
But now she is Britain’s
greatest ever Winter Olympian, it’s all about knitting
needles for Lizzy Yarnold.
After becoming our first
two-time winter gold medallist on a Super Saturday
which brought Team GB a
hat-trick of medals, Yarnold relaxed by waking up
at 7am and knitting.
She is a genuine Jekyll
and Hyde character —
bombing head-first down
icy slopes at 80mph and
also loving sky-diving. Yet
Yarnold, 29, said: “After
winning the gold, I had
three hours’ sleep and then
I was up knitting at 7am.
That was quite calming.
“I’m only knitting strips
because I can’t do a pattern, it’s too complicated.
“I’m not sleeping very
well at the moment so it
was Netflix and chilling.
“My nan taught me to
knit. She has passed away
and so it’s a way to feel
connected with her.
“I’ve found it relaxing
for a few years — but I’m
still not very good.”
Yarnold is expected to
retire but will not reveal
her decision until she has
had a break — including a
holiday “drinking cocktails”
with her close friend and
bronze
medallist
Laura
Deas.
She hopes to inspire a
generation of kids — despite
controversy over the skeleton’s funding compared to
more ‘accessible’ sports.
The Sochi 2014 champ
added: “I’m not the one
who makes the decision on
who gets money and who
doesn’t.
“I’m hugely grateful for
UK Sport supporting us.
But I do think we inspire
people.
“After Sochi, my most
important thing was visiting 300 or 400 schools.
“That’s certainly top of
my list now — I wouldn’t
pursue celebrity status.
“My gold medal is like
Frodo’s ring, when you see
the children’s faces light
up. If I can be a role
model to them, that’s the
most important thing.”
Fourth is
EVE’S HOG HELL ‘minging’
EVE MUIRHEAD was ‘gutted’ as
her voided final stone cost Great
Britain’s curlers yesterday.
Muirhead saw the effort ruled
out — seemingly for not being
released before the red ‘hogline’
— to gift Sweden a 8-6 win
after an extra end.
Yet pictures showed she DID
let go early enough.
Skip Muirhead (right) said:
“It’s gutting it finished that way
but the red light came on so
that’s counted as a hogged rock.
“At a time like that, it’s
horrible. But it makes it worse
when it doesn’t look like it is.”
JAMES WOODS admitted
it was “minging” to miss
out on a slice of British
Winter Olympics history.
The slopestyle skier, 27,
sat in bronze position as
Team GB needed one
medal to make it their
most successful Olympics.
But
American
Nick
Goepper seized silver on
his final run, knocking
the Brit down to fourth.
He said: “Fourth isn’t
great, it definitely sucks.
Fourth place is minging,
it’s so devastating — you’re
so close to the action.”

GROVES BLAST AT JUNIOR
By WALLY DOWNES Jr
MUIR . . . world of pain
Muir eyes
a double
By VIKKI ORVICE
LAURA MUIR plans to
double up at next month’s
World Indoors — and bid
for her first global medal.
The European 3,000
metres and 1500m champ
will run both distances in
Birmingham
when
the
championships kick off on
Thursday week.
It will now mean a
gruelling schedule of four
races in as many days —
with the 3,000m opening
the event.
Muir, 24, said: “It’s a
big ask. But it’s not a
Europeans, it’s a Worlds.
It’s going to be tough.
“The 1500m is three
rounds, which will get
tougher and faster. But I
think I’m fit enough. If all
goes well, we’ll double up.”
Muir, seen as a future
poster girl for the sport,
did the same at the World
Championships in London
last summer despite initial
reservations from team
officials.
She finished fourth in
her favoured 1500m and
then sixth over 5,000m
— in only her second
outing over that distance.
Gutted RICHARD KILTY
will not defend his 60m
World Indoor title after
he withdrew from the
British Athletics Indoor
Championships with an
Achilles injury.
Super 10
club plot
SUPER LEAGUE could be
cut to ten clubs and a
second tier formed under
controversial new plans.
Top-flight outfits had
been expected to approve
a 14-club league for 2020
— up two from the
current 12.
But
SunSport
has
learned
of
another
proposal that would see
two ten-club tiers.
All
central
funding
would go to those 20
teams, meaning those outside would have to find
money themselves or die.
Two clubs would go up
and down between tiers.

came
home in tenth as his Ruta

The four-time Tour de
France winner, in his first
race since his failed drug
test became public, ended
11th in the final stage.
Belgium’s Tim Wellens
came eighth in the time
trial to claim overall victory in Andalucia, Spain.
Froome’s puncture on
Saturday saw him start
yesterday’s finale in 14th.
Team Sky pal David de
la Cruz won the Barbate
stage in a time of 17 min
11sec — 27 seconds
ahead of Froome.
GEORGE GROVES has
accused Chris Eubank Jr
of writing cheques his
gloves cannot cash.
Groves beat the 28-year-old
on points on Saturday night
at the Manchester Arena to
reach the World Boxing
Super Series final.
He then accused Eubank Jr
of being too busy looking at
posh houses rather than
concentrating on improving
as a boxer.
Groves also urged him to
ditch his father and coach
Chris Sr — and disappear to
the other side of the world
to learn his trade.
The WBA super-middleweight champ said: “He’s
going to have a tough phase
now, because he dreamt
about all these things he was
going to have.
“Dreaming about winning
a big fight before you’ve won
it, I’m also guilty of.
“But there was a documentary and he was looking
around
houses
he
can’t
afford. He had to win the
tournament to afford them.
“He spent the whole week
trying to develop his new
clothing range.
“People buy your T-shirt
because you’re winning, they
don’t care if it’s a Fruit of
the Loom T-shirt or if it has
come straight out of the
Burberry warehouse.
“They just want your logo
on their shirt.
“He’s had so many people
jump on his bandwagon of
late. But people will quickly
forget about you, let’s see if
he can cope with that.
“Even the most resilient
people struggle with it.
“Jr is better off going to
the other side of the world,
away from his dad to have a
fresh start.
“He doesn’t have a wife
and kids, so maybe it could
work for him.”
Groves has also warned
World Boxing Super Series
chiefs that fans will switch
off if they do not allow him
enough time to recover to
fight in the final.

given out mixed messages on
the final scheduling, that
there is no show without him
on the bill. The Chelsea fan
is recovering at the Lowry
hotel and hoping to spot
fellow resident and former
Blues boss Jose Mourinho.
Groves said: “I am going to
see a specialist today and
have more MRI scans, I will
have
a

idea
by
Tuesday. I will have to go
into camp very soon.
“I am the No 1 seed in
the tournament and I am
the only legitimate world
champion. Who wants to
watch the final without me
in it to be honest?
“If the dates need to be
changed slightly, then I am
sure they will now.
“We will get the medical
report first and then we will
see. If I was them, I would
not want to replace me. If
they do, then that’s fine.

there is definitely room in
the summer to readjust if
needs be.”

BAYLING
OUT!
Trev: Time to scrap T20s
SCOREBOARD
England beat New Zealand
by 2 runs
TREVOR BAYLISS called for
Twenty20 internationals to be
scrapped after England’s hopes
of reaching the tri-series final
ended with a whimper.
Bayliss’ side needed to beat New
Zealand by 20 runs to face Australia
in Wednesday’s final but they could
only manage a two-run victory in
Hamilton.
Skipper Eoin Morgan top scored
with 80 runs from 46 balls, after
England were put in to bat.
Morgan’s knock, his secondhighest in international T20s,
helped his side to an
imposing 194-7.
But, with New Zealand
only needing to reach 175 to
qualify for the final on net
run-rate, they reached that
target after 18.1 overs.
Head
coach
Bayliss
(right) reckons the triseries — only the second
of its kind — has shown

belong on the international stage.
He said: “I haven’t changed my
opinion on it. I wouldn’t play T20
internationals.
“If you want to play a World Cup
every four years, maybe six months
before let international teams play
T20. I’d just let the franchises play.”
Morgan’s men lost their first three
games — two to Australia and one to
New Zealand and feels the right teams
are contesting Wednesday’s final.
He said: “We had absolutely
no right to be in the final. We
played terribly so far in the
series.
“We played well today, did
enough to win but not
enough to go through and
that has been the story of
the trip.”
England’s defence of
their target of 195
got
off
to
the
worst possible start
when an incredible
assault from Colin Munro saw the
big-hitter smash 57 from just 21
balls.
He smashed seven sixes and,
along with Martin Guptill, put on
77 in the first six overs, taking
advantage of some wayward newball bowling.
However, Morgan reacted angrily
to suggestions the heavy runs
were down to a lack of confidence from England’s bowlers,
instead blaming conditions which
favoured the hosts.
He added: “It’s a dew thing. It
was very wet out there.
“Towards the end of our
innings it was starting to skid
on better than it had done
throughout the innings.
“I noticed that it got better
to bat on.

EXCLUSIVE: BOOK
DAMNED
UNITED
Gullit thought club were
cursed so he sprinkled salt
to ward off evil spirits
PAUL FERRIS worked with
ten managers across three
decades as a Newcastle
player and physio.
But there is one boss he
will never forget for all the
wrong reasons: Ruud Gullit.
Ferris, 52, would “dread going
to work” under the Dutchman,
who “made his life a misery”.
And he casts his mind back to
the Wembley dressing room
before Newcastle’s 1999 FA Cup
final defeat to Manchester United
to give an example of just how
bizarre things became.
Ferris explained: “I sat on the
bench to get changed and felt
grains of sand on the floor.
“I asked kitman Ray Thompson
what was going on and he said,
‘It’s not sand, it’s salt. The
manager’s had me sprinkle salt
everywhere to ward off evil
spirits because he thinks the
club’s cursed’.”
That is just one of the many
extraordinary tales from Ferris’
quite extraordinary life, which he
chronicles in his new book, The
Boy on the Shed.
Ferris, who was tipped for
stardom
after
becoming
the
club’s youngest-ever player in
1982 aged 16 before injury struck,
was physio from 1993-2006.
And he says Gullit made him
so “paranoid” he even thought
the treatment room at the training ground had been “bugged”.
Talking at a hotel on Newcastle’s Quayside, he said: “It was
the worst experience in my time
at the club.
“A football club that was
united went to one that was
completely fractured so quickly.”
Gullit’s ill-fated, year-long tenure came to an abrupt end when
he quit three days after a derby
defeat to Sunderland — a match
in which he infamously dropped
Alan Shearer. Ferris recalled: “The
By DAVID
COVERDALE
day before in the canteen, Ruud
was leaning back in his chair
and was loudly saying, ‘It’s a new
dawn for this club tomorrow’.
“He was gloating over his
decision to drop Shearer.”
Ferris was, and still is, close to
Shearer, a friendship which began
when he took the striker’s medical ahead of his world-record
£15million move from Blackburn
to Newcastle in July 1996.
Having been mysteriously summoned to a private hospital in
Manchester, Ferris said: “I opened
the door and there was the
world’s most expensive footballer,
just sitting in his boxer shorts.
“The first thing I had to do
was stick my finger in his groin!”
When Shearer was offered the
Southampton manager’s job in
2008 by a group buying the
Saints, he wanted Ferris to head
up his medical department.
The proposed takeover, however, fell through, leaving Ferris
jobless and Shearer still searching for his first managerial post.
That, of course, soon came
with Newcastle in April 2009,
when Mike Ashley called on
Shearer to try to keep them up.
Ferris
gives
a
fascinating
insight into the dressing room
during that eight-game period.
He tells of a huge bust-up
between Shearer and Joey Barton and his own disappointment
at how star striker Michael Owen
chose not to give more for
Newcastle’s relegation fight.
In his brilliant book, Ferris also
reveals for the first time what
really happened with Shearer
after Newcastle went down.
He details a training-ground
meeting when Ashley arrived
with financier Keith Harris to
inform them he was selling up,
but Shearer still insisted he
wanted to be boss and shook
hands with the owner.
Yet two days later, managing
director Derek Llambias told
them there had “been a problem with Barclays bank”.
And Ferris added: “That
was the last time Alan was
ever contacted directly by
Newcastle.”
Ferris, set off on “a
tailspin” by the U-turn,
eventually got a job as
the managing director
of a fitness company
in Newcastle, the city
he first moved to
from Northern Ireland in 1981 after a
successful
Toon
trial alongside a
certain
Paul
Gascoigne.
Ferris
(right)
was plagued by
hamstring
troubles
before
a
knee injury ultimately cut
short his career, aged 25.
And as injuries wrecked his
career, so health problems have
ravaged Ferris’ later life.
His book begins by detailing
the day he had a heart attack.
Now he has another fight
on his hands, having been
diagnosed
with
prostate
cancer in December 2016.
Ferris said: “The negative
is that I’ve had a heart
attack and I’ve now got
cancer.
“But the positive is
the
heart
attack
didn’t kill me and
the cancer, at the
moment, is not a
cancer that is going
to kill me and I can
fight that, too.”

interested — when it’s not
Real, it’s Paris, when it’s
not Paris, it’s Real. I’m
happy where I am.”
Hazard, 27, knows Barca
are a huge threat to
Conte’s Euro campaign.
Speaking to French TV
show Telefoot, he said:
“All the players will be
concentrating 200 per
cent against Barca.
“If you’re not, then
you’re going straight out.
“I’ve
never
played
against Barca before and I
can’t wait to test myself.”
CHELSEA and Barcelona renew
their Champions League rivalry
tomorrow when they meet for
the first leg of their last-16 tie.
Frenchman Emmanuel Petit knows
the two European giants better than
most having played for both during
his illustrious 16-year career.
Here, the 1998 World Cup winner
gives SunSport his exclusive lowdown
on the Stamford Bridge blockbuster.
HAZARD WARNING
It is time for Eden Hazard to raise
his level on the big stage.
He has been tremendous since he
signed for Chelsea — but in the
Champions League I have been a
little bit frustrated because I haven’t
seen the great Hazard yet.
Everyone knows what he can do
on the pitch but he has to start
doing it in the Champions League
and with Belgium.
If he wants to be seen alongside
Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo,
he must raise his game and this
match is ideal for him to do that.
BLUE GIROUD
The fighter Olivier Giroud will play
a new role for Chelsea that will help
Hazard a lot.
Hazard was missing a Giroud-type
person — this is the kind of player
he will love to play with.
Giroud is not going to ask for the
ball behind defenders. But Chelsea
have fast players anyway and he is
very physical, especially in the box
and he can bring in players as well.
He reminds me of Diego Costa
with his fighting spirit and mentality.
You know what you can expect
from him, he always gives 100 per
cent. It’s a very good buy for Chelsea
and a good opportunity for Olivier.
He can have a big impact against
Barca — especially on setpieces, which is an area
where I think they can
cause them problems.

has been bad and I think
that started with what happened
with Costa.
The dressing room has been
affected by that. Conte and Costa
and then Conte and David Luiz.
You couldn’t imagine after they
became champions that all these
things would happen so quickly.
But the players have to forget
everything because this is the kind
of game that everyone wants to play
in their career.
If I was in that Chelsea dressing
room I would put away what I think
and try and concentrate on winning
the game as a unit.
Forget things that aren’t going well
with the manager and concentrate
on what is in front of you — one of
the biggest teams in the world.
If you start thinking you have
problems before coming on the
pitch, you should stay in the dressing room.
DROGS OF WAR
If you want to stop Messi, you have
to play as a team.
I remember when Guus Hiddink’s
Chelsea with Didier Drogba, Frank
Lampard and John Terry played
Barcelona in the 2009 semi-final
and were unlucky not to win
because of refereeing decisions.
Some of the players were warriors.
Drogba was a leader. They were
physically ready for the fight.
What happened at the end would
have been hard to swallow but they
showed the ingredients you need.
That was one of the greatest Barca
teams with Xavi and Andres Iniesta
but Chelsea played with aggression,
energy, intensity and togetherness.
When you don’t have the ball, you
have to be very compact and not

space

the
lines
because Messi loves that.
But when you get the ball, you
need to play it as fast as possible in
the counter attack.
PAIN IN SPAIN
I played less than 30 games in my
season at Barcelona and most were
in defence. It was a season to forget.
We went out in the group stage of
the Champions League and went
into the Europa League — and at
Barcelona, you cannot be playing in
the Europa League.
It was not good timing for me to
go there. There were too many rivalries in the dressing room between
the captain Pep Guardiola and the
Dutch players. Too many politics.
We were a bunch of very talented
players but the spine of the team
was too old and there were too
many troubles on and off the pitch.
I was disappointed with what was
happening and I wanted to come
back to England. When I moved to
Chelsea, I had to prove my heart
was blue and not red because a lot
of fans still believed I was a Gunner.
The reception I had in the dressing room was good and my first
season went well. But then I had too
many physical problems and my
spell at Chelsea ended in a bad way.

There was another long

in

Juan Mata put the ball
in the net on half-time
and the VAR ruled it out
for a tight offside — but
not before a lengthy wait.
United midfielder Matic
said: “I like it. I think it
will be better for football.
“They just have to do it
a bit quicker as we waited
so long. Two minutes is a
long time on the pitch.
“It’s normal refs make
mistakes and they can
refer it to TV but it needs
to be quicker.
“They have to do it in

“Danny Rose did really well

fire in Dale’s injury-time leveller
and seal a replay at Wembley

sharp.
For 14 minutes — 29 if you
include half-time — they believed
they could hold on.
But Spurs responded, with Lucas
Moura levelling on his first start
since a £25million move from
Paris Saint-Germain.
He was one of 11 changes to the
Spurs side who drew in Turin, a
massive turnover in personnel
after such a polished performance.
Back in east Lancashire, in a
biting wind whipping up off
Saddleworth Moor, Dale made life
bloody uncomfortable for these
Premier League stars.
They rattled a few bones, with
Mark Kitching, Harrison McGahey
and Ryan Delaney leaving a foot

Victor Wanyama, in the centre of
Tottenham’s midfield, looked lost.

His team-mates found their feet in
the second half when the big guns
were summoned off the bench to
sort this tie out.
Dele Alli was on first then came
the intimidating figure of Kane.
They both left their mark.
Dele went over inside the box,
with his legs collapsing under the
challenge of McGahey.
And Kane, who scored Tottenham’s first in Turin last Tuesday,
was convinced he had grabbed the
winner from the spot.
So did Rochdale’s Tannoy man,
thanking the fans for showing up
and urging them to get down for
the game with MK Dons.
Nobody on the pitch was listening. They surged up the other end,
sensing one last chance to make a
little bit of history for their club.

The blood was pumping, the

It sent Spotland delirious,

Cook (right) will take the downto-earth approach as he looks to
inspire his League One promotion
hopefuls to a fifth-round upset.
The Latics are rank outsiders as Guardiola’s star-studded Premier League leaders
visit the DW Stadium.
But Wigan have knocked
out top-flight sides Bournemouth and West Ham on
their way to the last 16 —
and have won their past two
FA Cup meetings against
City, including the 2013 final.
Cook is not one for celebrating
with expensive tipples — he bought
a bottle of wine from the local
supermarket for Hammers boss
David Moyes in the last round.
And he insists Guardiola will be
treated the same as any League One
boss. Cook said: “Will I share a

‘Have a good season’. We want to

Guardiola has complained about
tough challenges of late but Cook’s
men will avoid the rough stuff.
He added: “Would we go out to
kick them? No, I wouldn’t be a

HAPPY MEMORY
OUR COLUMNISTS
Pep close
to being
Latics ace
PEP GUARDIOLA revealed he
came close to signing for Wigan
at the end of his playing days.
Back in 2005, Manchester
City’s boss, then 34, held talks
with ex-Latics chief Paul Jewell
about joining their midfield.
Former Barcelona ace Guardiola (below) claims he was not
good enough and instead
ended his playing career in the
Middle East and Mexico.
He said: “They tried to sign
me but I was really old as a
player and Wigan were so
clever because I wasn’t good
enough. That is the truth!”
Jewell remembers it slightly
differently. He recalled: “I
got a call from Guardiola’s
agent who gave me Pep’s
number so I rang him and
left a message.
“Just five minutes
later he rang me
back. He knew all
about Wigan, our
players — I was
so impressed.
“We had a terrific conversation
and he told me
he’d like to play
in the Premier
League.
“His wages were
not extortionate and
he was all set to
come when his agent
called me a few days
later to say Pep had
received a mind-blowing
offer from elsewhere.”
Guardiola confirmed
yesterday he will stick
with Claudio Bravo in
goal for tonight and
Sunday’s Carabao Cup
final against Arsenal.
The Chilean has lost
his place to Ederson but
Guardiola added: “Claudio is going to play.
We’re in the Carabao Cup
final thanks to him.”

tell us Manchester City

How have they got to this

immortality?
Well, obviously, no little
amount of money has been
spent on the squad.
Pep had to recruit the
right
men
to
play
the
‘Barcelona’ way.
And in Kevin De Bruyne,
Leroy Sane and Gabriel
Jesus they have the energy
of youth alongside David
Silva, Sergio Aguero (below)
and Fernandinho.
Even in goal they have the
ingredient they were missing. Ederson is as big a key
to what is happening with
this team as anyone.
It is not all just quality on
the ball but what they do
without it.
The energy levels of these
players must be off the scale
as it was at the Nou Camp
in Guardiola’s time there.
Lose the ball and three
players are hounding you
down to get it back.
Opponents are so
exhausted by the time
they win possession
that they don’t have a

what to do with it.
De
Bruyne
has
undoubtedly been the
stand-out player.
He must be a dream
for the likes of Aguero
with his delivery of all types
of through balls perfectly
weighted to be finished off.
Concentrate on stopping
him and you forget about
the quality elsewhere you
have to deal with.
Of all the work Guardiola

Raheem Sterling stands out
for me. He has 20 goals this
season, already almost double his previous best tally.
Someone who looked in
two minds in front of goal
is now an assured finisher.
He is arguably the most
skilful attacking player in an
England
shirt
alongside
Harry Kane.
Just think what confidence
he could have heading to
Russia this summer.
It’s all very exciting, it’s all
there to be won for City.
But they need one trophy
ahead of all others and,
until the Champions League
is won, debate over their
true greatness will continue
to rage.

Pardew has offered up honest

defeat added to an already miserable week. A Cup run in this

But Albion looked shellshocked from the events of the
previous 2 days.
And by the time they came

In the big scheme of things,

“We had 28,000 for our last

GOALS Championship
Sessegnon, 17, netted his 12th goal of
the season to help down Aston Villa,
with Floyd Ayite scoring the other.
Targett, on loan from Southampton,
was in the Under-9s at Saints when
Real Madrid attacker Bale was still at
the club.
Left-back Targett, 22, said of Sessegnon: “He’s right up there with the
likes of Luke Shaw and Gareth Bale.
“To score over ten goals already in
the Championship for any midfielder
that’s good, but he’s 17! He has got a
massive future.”
Villa debutant Axel Tuanzebe, 20, on
loan from Manchester United, dealt
with Sessegnon brilliantly in the first
half. Boss Steve Bruce said: “I was
delighted for Axel, he tired badly but
you can all see his talent.”

Klose 90
Chambers 89
By TOM BARCLAY
MICK McCARTHY insisted he
did not tell Ipswich fans to
“f*** off” as the East Anglia
derby exploded into life in the
final minutes.
Town boss McCarthy was caught
on camera yelling the obscenity
celebrating Luke Chambers’ 89thminute opener — and it appeared
to be aimed at his own support.
Ten minutes earlier those visiting fans
had taunted their manager for replacing
Dominic Iorfa with Jordan Spence.
Chambers’ goal looked to have ended
a run of almost nine years since the
Tractor Boys last beat their bitter rivals.
But that was put off for another
season when Timm Klose headed home
in the fifth minute of injury-time.
Yet the talking point after the game
was the antics of McCarthy.
The
former
Republic
of
Ireland
manager has a fractured relationship
with Ipswich fans and is not yet
certain to stay beyond the end of the
current season when his contract expires.
McCarthy said: “It was just
celebrating the goal. I was just

“I wanted the win. It was a

win the game and we didn’t.

JASON LOWE is sure goal-shy
Birmingham have the firepower to
beat the relegation blues.
This was their eighth blank at St
Andrew’s this season and they have
scored just 11 goals at home, the joint
second-lowest in all four divisions.
Against Millwall they took until
time added on to force a save out
of keeper Jordan Archer, when he
turned away Craig Gardner’s shot.
But Lowe, 26, stressed: “We’ve got
firepower. When it comes together,
we know we can score goals.”
Millwall’s matchwinner Fred Onyedinma hopes he has handed boss
Neil Harris a selection headache.
The winger, 21, bagged his first
goal in 371 days 11 minutes after
replacing on-loan Ben Marshall.
Onyedinma said: “I’ve not played
as much as I’d have liked. But I’ve
put my head down and luckily I
got the goal so I’m happy.”
NIGEL CLOUGH says rock-bottom
Burton’s ‘B’ team need to be fit and
firing if they are to pull off another
Great Escape.
Former England striker Darren
Bent and record buy Liam Boyce are
slowly easing their way back after
lengthy spells on the sidelines.
The Brewers visit fellow strugglers
Barnsley tomorrow and Clough said:
“Neither
have
that
necessary
sharpness at the moment.
“The only thing we can do is put
them out there. At least with Liam
and Darren up there, if they get a bit
sharper, we’ve got a chance.”
Forest survived for more than an
hour with ten men after Eric Lichaj’s
red-card lunge on Martin Samuelsen.
Defender Danny Fox said: “The
home crowd played a massive part in
getting him sent off.”
SEAN MORRISON believes Cardiff’s
physical presence will help them in
the promotion run-in.
The 6ft 4in Bluebirds skipper
bagged his third goal in four
games, finishing off Junior Hoilett’s
33rd-minute free-kick to lift Neil
Warnock’s men up to second spot.
Warnock, whose side visit Ipswich
on Wednesday, brought in 6ft 3in
striker Gary Madine and 6ft midfielders Armand Traore, Marko Grujic and Yanic Wildschut last month.
And Morrison said: “We are a big,
physical bunch of players. I don’t
think teams relish playing against
us. Seeing the size and physicality
of our team can be daunting.”
Boro’s play-off hopes are in the
balance after just two wins in six
games. They host Hull tomorrow
and boss Tony Pulis said: “We have
good players and just need to go on
a run of games from here.”
JOEL LYNCH and Matt Smith showed
what a bit of hard work can do as
they downed Bolton.
Lynch headed his first goal of the
season after 72 minutes and Smith
sealed victory in stoppage-time.
Lynch said: “A small group of us
have been going to the gym at 8am
every day to work on our conditioning — and it has paid off.
“I’ve lost quite a bit of weight,
nearly a stone. It has helped me get
up and down the pitch a lot more.
“It is showing in our performances. It is improving us.”
Bolton were again poor away but
they were not helped by Mark Little’s
straight red for an ill-timed tackle.
Yet with tomorrow’s date at the
Macron in mind, David Wheater said:
“Our home form can save us —
Sunderland is a massive game.”

Moments later, centre-back Klose had
fantastic opportunity when Harrison
Reed’s high ball fell to him just six
yards out.
But he got his first touch all wrong
and the chance was gone.
The 2,000 travelling fans — who had
paid £40 for adult entry — taunted their
manager for taking off Iorfa on 79
minutes.
They chanted, “Mick McCarthy your
football is s***” but ten minutes later
those jeers turned to jubilant cheers.
Ipswich skipper Chambers outjumped
Alex Tettey to head home Martyn
Waghorn’s corner, sparking McCarthy’s
controversial reaction.
Yet, right at the end, the Town boss
was denied what would have been a
famous win when defender Grant
Hanley kept the ball in play and fired
an inch-perfect cross that Klose headed
into the corner of the net. It was
practically the last touch of the game
and means these two remain tied on 45
points in the middle of the table as
their play-off hopes dwindle.
Norwich boss Daniel Farke said:
“After the late equaliser, you got the
feeling of an explosion at Carrow Road!
“We had many chances in the second
half. Normally you must be sad to have
just a draw after this second half.
“But to have this reaction after going
a goal down, it feels a bit like a win.
“We have the best scoring record in
the last 30 minutes of all the teams in
the Championship and I think it’s a
sign of our physical condition but also
our mentality and togetherness.”

ELL OF A GOAL . . .
Kemar Roofe celebrates
scoring Leeds’ equaliser
But Hecky came mighty close to racking up his first win over Johnson in
this duel of the dugouts between the
two former Tykes bosses.
A rousing second-half fightback by
Leeds earned Heckingbottom a point on
his home debut as Elland Road boss.
And it would have been all three had
Pierre-Michel Lasogga’s stoppage-time
header hit the back of the net instead
of rattling the bar.
Heckingbottom said: “At half-time I
would have settled for a point but, after
that second-half showing, I’m disappointed we didn’t end up winning it.
“Had we lost, we would probably have
been out of contention but we’re still in
there fighting and we’ll see where we
are when there are ten games to go.”
City arrived at Elland Road clinging
to sixth spot by their fingernails after a
run which had brought them just one
win from seven league outings. But they
16 minutes.
Leeds keeper Felix Wiedwald gifted
the Robins their first on 12 minutes by
missing an attempt to punch clear Hordur Magnusson’s throw and German
hitman Famara Diedhiou shot home.
Leeds were two-down four minutes
later when Bobby Reid fired into the
roof of the net after latching on to Marlon Pack’s ball across the six-yard line.
But the Whites gave themselves real
hope of getting something out of the
game by halving the deficit with a
72nd-minute strike by Lasogga.
And the first-half agony turned to
ecstasy for the home punters when sub
Kemar Roofe slotted home the leveller
seven minutes later.
Johnson admitted: “It was disappointing not to win after the way we started
the game and went two-up so early on.
“Credit Leeds for the way they came
back at us — they are a good side.”
WOLVES can almost touch
the promised land of the
Premier League.
But
Nuno
Espirito
Santo’s men learned the
hard way that their march
won’t be a stroll.
Helder Costa’s instant
equaliser after Preston
midfielder John Welsh was
sent off should have been
the start of more.
Instead, North End dug
in for the last half hour to
deny the runaway leaders.
Wolves defender Matt
Doherty said: “The sending-off helped but in a
way it didn’t.
“Preston dropped deep.
They defended well and
were incredibly disciplined.
“When you’re top, other
teams play differently.
“We won’t be able to
take our foot off the gas.”
Alan Browne, who gave
Preston the lead, said:
“We took the game to
them at the start of the
second half and gave them
something to think about.
“But then the boys had
to dig in.”

FIRST BLOOD . . . Kiwomya nets opener
GRANT!
BLACKPOOL have failed to win
their last ten home league
games (D5 L5) – the worst
current run in third-tier.
Special K Angry McCann reffin’ furious
just glad
to be back
By CHRIS HUGHES

By IAN GORDON
ALEX KIWOMYA feared his playing
days were over after being struck
down with a rare disease that
could have left him paralysed.
After moving to Donny, the
ex-Chelsea prospect was sidelined
for six months by Guillain-Barre
syndrome,
which
attacks
the
nervous system.
But he marked his first start
after three substitute displays with
a goal as Uwe Rosler’s reign as Cod
Army boss was brought to an end
following a seventh straight defeat.
Kiwomya, 21, said: “There were
loads of times when I didn’t know
if I was going to come back.
“There was one point when it
wasn’t getting any better but there
was one week when it took a turn
and I knew I’d definitely play again.
“To make my debut was something special.
“I took a picture of the shirt in
the dressing room as I didn’t ever
expect to see it hanging up there.”
Kiwomya netted after 13 minutes with on-loan Burnley centre-back Tom Anderson adding
a brace to give Donny a first
league win since December 29.
But a fifth straight league
defeat and seventh in all competitions proved too much for
Fleetwood chiefs who axed Rosler after the game.
The German, 49, led them to
the play-off semi-finals last year
but leaves after 20 months with
the Cod Army only above the
bottom three on goal difference.
Development coach Barry Nicholson
and goalkeeping coach David Lucas
will take charge for tomorrow’s visit
of Portsmouth.
POSH manager Grant
McCann blasted referee
Eddie Ilderton — and
claimed he missed a
‘blatant handball’ for
Nathan
Delfouneso’s
Blackpool equaliser.
Peterborough reckon that
striker Delfouneso bundled
the ball over the line with
his hand, allowing the
Seasiders to earn a point
after Jack Marriott put
Posh into the lead.
McCann says he was not
disappointed
with
the
result but was left seething
with the referee’s display.
He added: “We feel as if
the goal was a blatant
handball, I don’t know how
the referee has missed it.
“Nathan Delfouneso has
even told a few of our
players he can’t believe he
got away with it.
“Some of the decisions
were ridiculous — and that
was for both teams.
“Ultimately, that decision
gets them a goal right on

half-time but the boys
rallied again. We’ve said it
for the past three weeks
now, three draws is not
what we want — but these
will probably turn into
good points.
“We can’t be too down
about it, we have to dust
ourselves down and be
fresh for these next two
home games coming up.”
Marriott is League One’s
leading
scorer
and
he
made it 19 for the season
to put Posh ahead.
Marcus
Maddison
did
superbly down the right
and
his
cross
found
Marriott in the middle to
nod past Joe Lumley.
Blackpool are shockingly
still without a home win
since beating Bury back
in October.
But
they
were
level
against the run of play on
the stroke of half-time.
Birmingham loan winger
Viv Solomon-Otabor broke
well down the left flank
and cut the ball across for
Delfouneso to bundle in —
to furious appeals from
Peterborough players.
It was the Seasiders
who came closest to
taking all three points on
68 minutes.
But
striker
Armand
Gnanduillet
amazingly
headed wide of the far
post from six yards out.
The
point
extended
Blackpool’s crucial gap to
the relegation zone to three
points.
While Posh, now winless
in four, have pulled to
within five points of the
play-offs.
Blackpool
boss
Gary
Bowyer
bemoaned
his
side’s lack of composure in
attacking areas.
He said: “We just lacked
a little bit of care in the
final third.
“I thought first half we
looked a bit leggy and we
conceded a soft goal.
“But the response was
terrific from them — and
we scored the best goal in
the game.
“The way we then started
the
second
half
was
fantastic. The players really
deserve
an
enormous
amount of credit for the
way they went about it.
“Big Armand should have
won it for us.
“But this is a
Peterborough
side that has
spent cash,
so we have
competed
well.”

GEORGE FRANCOMB is hoping for a
stress-free finish to the season.
The Wimbledon midfielder wants
enough points in the bag to avoid a
nail-biting relegation finale.
Joe Pigott’s injury-time headed
goal ended a run of four defeats and
took Dons out of the drop zone.
Francomb, 26, said: “Psychologically, it’s good to move out of the
bottom four. We want points on the
board now so we don’t have a tense
finish to the season still needing
results to stay up.
“Nobody wants a relegation on
their CV. We believe we’re more than
capable of being a top-12 team.”
Bristol Rovers could have cut the
gap on the play-off places to just
three points with a win.
Pirates boss Darrell Clarke fumed:
“I think we’re a million miles from
being a top-six squad.”
JAKE HESSENTHALER believes
Gillingham are the in-form team
who others now fear to play.
Gills are dark horses for the
play-offs having been in a relegation fight earlier in the season.
When Steve Lovell took charge in
October, the Kent side were 22nd
in the table, but after a terrific run
of one loss in 12 they are now six
points off the top six.
Midfielder Hessenthaler said: “We
have seen a big change in attitude
of teams who play us now.
“A while back they all thought
we’d be easy to take three points
off. Now they play us and think
getting a point is a good result.
“Teams above us are looking over
their shoulders at what we can
achieve.”
After a match of few chances,
Walsall boss Jon Whitney said: “It
was tough, more like boxing, but a
point each was a fair result.”
HITMAN Josh Magennis was relieved
to see this victory put an end to
Charlton’s late, late woe.
The Addicks led in their three previous games only to concede late
goals that cost them seven points.
But an early Ahmed Kashi thunderbolt and Magennis’ third goal in four
games on the hour steered them
to victory, despite Kieran Agard’s
consolation header.
Magennis said: “It gets that
monkey off our back. We started the
season in absolute flames and then
hit our worst form, not just the team
but me too in terms of scoring.
“We managed to turn it around
and were taking leads but just
couldn’t see it out.”
MK have lost their last five league
games. Striker Agard said: “The goal
doesn’t mean much to me. I would
trade that in all day for a win.”
SONNY BRADLEY is confident of
his ability against anyone at the
back post after burying Oxford.
The
Plymouth
centre-back’s
fourth goal of the campaign right
on half-time kept the Pilgrims in
play-off mode as they notched their
fifth win on the spin.
And Bradley, after heading home
Graham Carey’s corner, said: “I like
to get to the back stick and, when
the ball’s in the air, I fancy myself
against anybody in football.
“It was a great time to get the
goal and, though it wasn’t pretty,
we showed we can play ugly and
get a result — and that’s massive.”
Oxford sub Ricardinho believes
managerless United can pull themselves out of trouble despite sacking Spaniard Pep Clotet last month.
The Brazilian striker said: “You
have to be prepared for all situations. We are sad with this result
but our confidence isn’t shattered.”

GRAHAM ALEXANDER is worried
by Scunthorpe’s stuttering form
after one win in eight games.
His
side
equalised
twice
through Funso Ojo and Murray
Wallace after earlier goals from
Chris Long and John-Joe O’Toole.
Boss Alexander said: “We had
the mentality to fight back twice,
but we have to find the courage
to play when the pressure is on
at 0-0.
“Sometimes it’s easier doing
the right things when you’re a
goal down and there’s nothing to
lose. We have to improve.”
Northampton boss Jimmy Floyd
Hasselbaink was pleased after
the shambolic midweek showing
at Gillingham.
He said: “The boys wanted to
put
something
right
after
Tuesday — and they did.”
JASON DEMETRIOU warned
Southend’s strikers he will race
them to the end of the season
to finish top goalscorer.
The right-back’s double strike
sank woeful Pompey and fired
him to the top of the charts at
Roots Hall with eight goals.
That puts him one ahead of
forward Simon Cox and three
in front of wideman Michael
Kightly.
Demetriou, 30, said: “Coxy
and the other forwards are
worried I’ll nick the top scorer’s
boot from them. Let’s hope
there are a few more this term.”
Matt Clarke’s own goal began
the
rout
while
team-mate
Nathan Thompson saw red in
the second half. Gareth Evans
was on target for Pompey.
Boss Kenny Jackett said: “It’s
too many games now without a
clean sheet.”
STRIKER Carlton Morris stressed his
Shrewsbury side must quickly recover
their winning ways.
The table-toppers have lost two of
their last three matches with this defeat
to promotion rivals Rotherham.
Morris said: “It is a hard one to take,
but that is football. A sloppy goal has
cost us, yet we had the better chances.
“If you don’t take opportunities against
good teams, you get punished. We need
to bounce back and go on another run.”
The in-form Millers enjoyed the best of
the early chances but Semi Ajayi missed
a glorious chance when he headed wide
from six yards.
Yet his blushes were spared when
Richard Wood tapped home after Shrews
failed to clear a 44th-minute corner.
Rotherham boss Paul Warne said: “The
lads have a real belief in themselves and
are a close group. I’m lucky as it’s very
difficult to pick the 18.”

DAN’S HAUNTED
BY DROP AGONY
Blackburn
v Bury
7.45pm, Sky Sports Football
By BRENDAN McLOUGHLIN
DANNY GRAHAM says Blackburn are out to
avenge their final-day relegation heartbreak
as they bid to go top tonight.
Third-placed Rovers face Bury knowing a
draw will send them to the summit after
Shrewsbury lost 1-0 to Rotherham on Saturday.
Tony Mowbray’s men are aiming to return to
the Championship at the first attempt following
their drop agony last season.
Striker Graham (left) said: “For those of us
who were here last year, we want to put that
right and hopefully we can.
“There are 14 games to go, plenty of twists
and turns. We need to concentrate on ourselves.
“Everyone is on a high. The boss has some big
decisions, there are going to be good players
sitting in the stands on match days now.
“That can only bode well. Everyone has to
train well and be bang at it — because if not
you’re going to be out of the squad.”

BARNET boss Graham Westley
believes his back-markers
could finish in mid-table.
Rock-bottom Bees are six
points from safety but gave
promotion-chasing Stanley a
torrid time.
And Westley’s men might
have won if ref Brett Huxtable
had awarded a penalty after
visiting keeper Aaron Chapman took out John Akinde.
Westley said: “That was a
clear penalty. The keeper
cleaned John out.
“The lads have it in them
to drive on to mid-table.
They have what it takes to
win games in this league.”
Alex Nicholls fired Barnet
ahead but Billy Kee levelled
with a penalty.
Carlisle....................2

SID NELSON is adamant
Chesterfield will not drop out
of the Football League.
The Spireites slipped to
defeat at Carlisle and are
five points from safety with
13 games remaining.
The
on-loan
Millwall
defender said: “We apologise
to the fans that came today.
“Time is ticking, but I
promise the fans that we will
get out of the mess.”
Kelvin Etuhu curled in the
Cumbrians’ first-half opener.
Sub John O’Sullivan hit the
second on 81 minutes.
United boss Keith Curle
was not satisfied, saying: “I
think we can still do better.”

U’S CHIEF HAILS CARETAKER
THIS was billed as a clash
of two rudderless clubs in
the wrong half of the table.
Both sacked their manager
the previous weekend, Shaun
Derry
getting
his
P45
at
Cambridge and Russell Slade
being booted out by Grimsby.
But that is where the similarities
all but end.
By Saturday evening the distance
between the U’s and the Mariners
seemed far greater than the four
places separating them in the table.
Cambridge, the higher of the two
in 14th, have a new owner and
a cash injection thanks to local
businessman Paul Barry.
They are preparing to apply for
planning permission to build a new
ground on the Abbey Stadium site.
While in the stands the fans
were smiling again after a
second win in four days
under interim head coach
Joe Dunne.
The
Irishman
was
installed when Derry left
last Friday following a sixgame winless streak and has
overseen a 3-2 defeat of Chesterfield and now this 3-1
victory over Grimsby.
Dunne,
44,

Crawley..................3 Crewe......................1
Lincoln.....................1 Colchester.............0
HARRY KEWELL has been
hailed a top boss by his
Crawley record-breakers.
His side now have eight
wins in their last ten games
and full-back Lewis Young
puts it down to Kewell’s
“outstanding” teaching.
He said: “He’s the hardestworking coach I’ve known.
What else would it be due to?
We are the same squad.”
Crawley are now two points
off the play-offs after a fifth
consecutive home win — a
club league record.
Young’s shot off the bar
enabled skipper Jimmy Smith
to open the scoring.
Matt Green equalised but
Josh Payne’s penalty and Mark
Connolly’s third ended Imps’
nine-match unbeaten run.
Lincoln chief Danny Cowley
was sent to the stands by
Trevor Kettle and admitted
he would try to contact the
ref “to find out why”.
GRIMSBY have gone 13 games
without a league win (D4 L9) —
their worst run in the Football
League since Feb 2010 (25 games).
EDDIE
NOLAN
reckons
Crewe’s new-found resolve
can drag them away from
relegation trouble.
The Railwaymen conceded
12 goals in a recent fourgame losing spell — but
have now registered two
clean sheets in successive
home games.
Shaun Miller’s strike on
the hour earned his side
their first win in seven to
move them six points clear
of the drop zone.
Centre-half Nolan said:
“We need to build on that.
Teams will be worried about
us catching them. If we
carry on defending like that,
we will climb the table.
“But it’s still very tight at
the bottom and we need to
put a real run together.”
Colchester
offered
little
and keeper Sam Walker
admitted: “It was a very bad
day at the office.
“We played poorly and
didn’t create chances.”
SUNSPORT reporter TONY RUSHMER
heads off to the Abbey Stadium
to watch the very contrasting
fortunes of two sides that
sacked their managers.
job full-time. It is the second time
he has taken temporary charge of
Cambridge and sees him working
alongside coach Mark Bonner.
Faith in the duo’s ability means
there has been no rush to appoint
Derry’s long-term successor.
U’s director of football Graham
Daniels (below) said: “We have had
significant numbers of applicants.
“We’ve been respectful. We’ve said
to each applicant that we’ll get back
to them if and when appropriate.
“We are not engaging in any
conversations at this stage. There’s
no shortlist.
“Joe is taking the leadership
as head coach and works
closely with Mark. We want
them to run affairs in the
near future.
“Joe understands how a
club of our size is trying to
do things.
“His combination with Mark,
who has come through our
academy system as a
coach and then its
manager,
gives
us a balance.
“They’re
two
people who know how we’re trying
to develop our club and what
underpins our philosophy.
“Joe’s been here three years and
grown to be a respected and valued
member of staff at Cambridge.
“He’s willing to turn his hand to a
range of tasks for the sake of the
cause. We trust him to be wise in
this transition period.”
The initial signs are that Dunne is
proving worthy of the board’s trust.
He has ensured Derry’s departure
did not destabilise the dressing room.
Dunne said: “Players will worry
about what’s going to happen and
the uncertainty about what’s next.
“I just think you’ve got to bring a
bit of simplicity and pragmatism to
it really. Try and keep them focused
on what they’re actually there for —
and that’s just to play games, irrespective of who’s on the touchline.”
There was little for the loyal 800strong Grimsby following to feel
positive about on Saturday.
Town’s bleak winter stretched to
13 games without a win as some
fans called for the club’s largest
shareholder John Fenty to go.
It was easy to feel some sympathy
for caretaker boss and ex-Mariners
player Paul Wilkinson, 53.
He said: “I’ll fight tooth and nail
to make sure that we get out of this.
“It’s my club — I started my
career here. I want to help them get
out of this spot of bother they’re in.”

Yeovil........................1
GREGG WYLDE was a happy
man after marking his home
debut with a 90th-minute
strike to earn Morecambe a
vital point.
The
on-loan
Plymouth
winger drilled home a low
shot past Bradley Collins.
Wylde said: “I’d had a few
efforts before the goal that
went close. I just decided to
strike the ball first time and
it was great to see it go in.
“I was delighted to get the
goal because it was such an
important one for the club.
“This was a game we
couldn’t afford to lose and
was a six-pointer because
they are at the wrong end of
the table with us.”
Chris Clements, who gave
Forest Green a 13th-minute
lead with a long-range effort,
said:
“Unfortunately,
we
couldn’t add to that strike —
we needed a second goal
really to kill them off.”
JOE DAY was a relieved
man as Newport survived a
late penalty scare.
It looked a blatant spotkick when County’s Ben
Hall was pushed in the
back in the dying seconds.
Exiles keeper Day said: “I
saw a lot of bodies coming
together but I was watching
the ball and I’m not sure it
was a penalty.
“There’s a sense of relief
that we kept a clean sheet
and that we didn’t lose.
“They have been near the
top of the table for the
majority of the season so it’s
a very good point for us.
“We are in a strong position and we believe we can
push for the play-offs.”
Newport captain Joss Labadie had a goal disallowed
early in the second half
after visiting keeper Adam
Collin was fouled.
Day then knocked Lewis
Alessandra’s powerful shot
over the bar.
DANNY NEWTON is not giving
up hope of Boro snatching a
shock play-off spot.
Stevenage have won just
four of their last 20 league
outings — and need to make
up 11 points in their final
dozen games.
But hitman Newton bagged
No 3 in this rout and said:
“Not one of us is a quitter.
“If we can get a few more
wins like this under our belt
and build momentum, you
never know what can happen.
“The lads have shown here
that we should be a lot
higher up the table.”
Efforts from Luke Amos
and Jon Smith put Boro 2-0
up at the break and Ben
Kennedy made it four after
Newton notched.
Sub Ryan Seager tapped
home a late consolation.
After their first loss in six,
Yeovil boss Darren Way said:
“This was a reality check.”

Exeter.....................0 Mansfield.....................1
DANNY ROSE kept Mansfield on course for promotion
— and himself on course for an early success.
The former Barnsley frontman bagged his 17th goal of
the season to move the Stags up to fourth. They have now
lost just one of their last 12 league matches.
Rose, 24, said: “The gaffer set me a target of 20 goals at
the start of the season and I would be disappointed if I
didn’t make it now.
“Their keeper pulled off a great save in the first five
minutes and I didn’t think it was going to be my day.
“But luckily I managed to be in the right place at the
right time after Kane Hemmings hit the bar.
“This is a massive three points and the lads are buzzing.”
Exeter remain one point off the play-off places after their
seven-game unbeaten home league run came to an end.
Grecians skipper Jordan Moore-Taylor said: “Sometimes
you get a defeat you don’t want and it is not nice. But we
need to dust ourselves down and kick on again.
“We have still got 15 games to play and there will be
lots of ups and downs between now and the end of the
season. We know we can beat anybody on this pitch if the
ball bounces our way.”
Swindon.................3
Port Vale.................2
SWINDON sub Paul Mullin
put his case for more game
time with a stunning winner.
He came on with ten minutes left and expertly lobbed
Vale keeper Ryan Boot to keep
Town in the play-off hunt.
Mullin said: “Every goal is
great, none more so than
when you are not getting as
much game-time as you’d like.
“It’s even better to come
on and score a winner.”
Town were behind after 11
minutes when Michael Tonge
neatly volleyed in.
Marc Richards then scored
twice before Cristian Montano
levelled before the break.
But Mullin, 23, lit up a dull
second half with his superb
goal to bag all three points.
Vale forward Montano said:
“We deserved something. It is
heartbreaking when you get
to 2-2 and that goal goes in.
“Individual errors are costing us.”
WYCOMBE goalkeeper Scott Brown
admits he is extremely thankful he no
longer has to tame the Beast.
Former Robins stopper Brown kept his
first clean sheet of the year and is
enjoying
playing
with
16st
striker
Adebayo Akinfenwa — nicknamed the
Beast — rather than facing him.
Akinfenwa scored his 12th career goal
against Cheltenham, before setting up
Paris Cowan-Hall for the second.
And Brown has been a victim of
the big man’s finishing more than he
cares to remember.
He said: “I’m glad I don’t face Ade
any more, his record against me is a
joke. He’s fantastic to play with and he’s
great in the dressing room as well.
“He’s also got a book out and I’m
hoping he’ll give me some commission
on the sales if I keep mentioning it!”
Cheltenham manager Gary Johnson
moaned: “If you make mistakes against
the top sides they will punish you — and
that’s exactly what happened.”

IT’S LEYTONLINE ORIENT
LEYTON ORIENT are beaming their home FA Trophy
quarter-final with Gateshead to fans outside the UK.
The O’s American owner, Nigel Travis, is hoping
the live video stream — priced at £7.12 — of
Saturday’s 3pm kick-off may attract new supporters.
Chief executive officer Danny Macklin said: “We
are excited about this initiative and believe this will
start a new commercial venture for Leyton Orient.”

GOALS 9
THE last time two Midland clubs won
automatic promotion from the second
tier to the Prem was nine years ago —
Wolves and Birmingham (2008-09).
BRUCIE
BONUS!
Steve’s going up again
Tom Barclay
IN A LEAGUE OF HIS OWN
MATT TARGETT summed up
just how close the battle for
the second promotion spot
and play-off places in the
Championship will be.
The Fulham full-back said: “I
think it’s going to go right to
the last day.
“It’ll be so hard to call,
there are some great
teams, but we’re definitely going to be
right up there.”
Looking at
MY FINAL TABLE
the runners and
riders, it is
hard to disagree with the
Southampton
loanee.
According to my
ultra-scientific
calculations, Wolves are on course
to match Reading’s record-breaking
106 points haul from 2005-06.
Villa will pip Cardiff to second
spot by a point while Tony Pulis’
Middlesbrough are going to sneak
into sixth spot.
Cue the chorus of angry Bluebirds, Robins and others twittering
away on social media.
But let me explain the thinking.
Villa are in the boxseat despite
Saturday’s 2-0 disappointment at
Fulham as their remaining fixtures
against
rival
sides
vying
for
promotion/play-offs are all at home.
Steve Bruce (right) has the
experience of navigating his way to
promotion having done it four
times before.
Though he will know just how
important it is to get star man
Jack Grealish and top scorer
Albert Adomah back to fitness.
Over at Cardiff, Neil Warnock is
desperate
to
add
an
eighth
promotion to his CV.
And with top-notch targetman
Gary Madine acquired in January,
his side have a great shot at doing
it. If Cardiff are still in second in
April following trips to Sheffield
United and Villa either side of
hosting Wolves, then they will be
favourites to do it.
The fitness and form of wonder-

kid Ryan Sessegnon and Tom Cairney are crucial for Fulham. And if
Aleksandar Mitrovic can come good
during his loan spell from Newcastle, that could be a defining bonus.
Derby’s
biggest
problem
is
arresting their current slide of one
win in five, with fans no doubt
fearing another blow-up.
As for Boro, the Pulis effect
needs to happen now.
Four defeats in their last seven
suggests it is unlikely but I still
fancy their chances, even with
Sheffield United’s relatively comfortable run-in.
But let’s not kid ourselves, it is
so hard to call — as Targett said —
that only a fool would have a go at
doing it now!
Not just a Fleeting glimpse
FLEETWOOD caretaker
bosses have a genuine
chance of getting the
gig full-time.
Barry Nicholson and
David Lucas are in temporary charge following
Saturday’s dismissal of
Uwe Rosler. And SunSport understands the
Cod Army hierarchy are
open-minded about a
permanent appointment.
The search is unlikely
to be a quick one as
they want to take time
picking the right man to
take them forward.
A source said Rosler,
who came within half an
hour of reaching the
Championship last term,
took the decision “very
professionally”.
