  1. An Ode to Jess

    We need one more line, just one more line to complete our Ode to Jessica Ennis-Hill. Tweet the final line to #Odetojess.

    Jess, much have you travell'd in the realms of gold'

    You've been an inspiration to those both young and old

    Sheffield's finest, a woman of steel,

    You've shown many an athlete a clean pair of heels.

    The pride of a nation, you've carried with dignity,

    And impressed the world with your peerless ability,

    We've followed your highs on the edge of our seats,

    We screamed at the telly- to help you compete.

    The battles, tears and victories,

    Your place in Britain’s history,

    Your strength and smiles as bright as the sun,

    Running with you, we always won.

    Much have you travell’d in the realms of gold…

    Talk about unlucky.

    Ipswich midfielder Teddy Bishop has broken his nose for the second time in a month following a training ground challenge.

    The 20-year-old suffered the recurrence of the injury, having initially broken his nose in September's match against Aston Villa.

    Bishop has played 11 times for Town this season after missing most of the last campaign through injury.

    He is now a major doubt for Saturday's Championship trip to Blackburn.

  5. Help the FA

    Football

    The Football Association has launched the 2016 Grassroots Football Survey and want your opinions on how to improve the game.

    The results provided valuable feedback and displayed a number of positives, but also highlighted some areas for improvement.
