Walsall's highly-rated teenage left-back Rico Henry has been nominated as a contender for the Football League's Young Player of the Year award.Copyright: Daniel Briggs - Walsall FC
Henry, who's 18, has been nominated along with Leeds United midfielder Lewis Cook, 19, and Fulham's 19-year-old French striker Moussa Dembele.

His early season form, scoring the winner in the League Cup victory over Brighton, earned him September's Young Player of the Month award. The boyhood Birmingham City fan is now just five games short of 50 career appearances and understood to be on the radar of a lot of top clubs.
The RSPCA says it's horrified by the attack on the seven-month-old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier who was found stabbed to death.

That would promote them into the National League next season. And, if as expected, they swap places with Kidderminster Harriers, it would make Marcus Bignot's side the highest-ranked non-league side in the Midlands.

We had a big response to the story of Telford’s Chris Master, who suffered a heart attack while on holiday in Thailand, and today we’ve got a major update for you. He’s on his way home at last.
After a long campaign by his family, who were told there were no NHS beds available to bring him back to Telford, he is in the air as I write being med-evac’d back to the UK. We’ll hear more about their ordeal and the wider implications of this story on tonight’s programme.
