Thursday 22nd February

 

FOOTBALL

Turriff United have appointed Kris Hunter as their new manager. Hunter returns for a second spell in charge at the Haughs after leaving in the summer of 2011 for Fraserburgh and then Formartine United who he parted company with earlier this season. He takes over from Graeme Roy who quit the club just over a month after taking the reins from the sacked Ross Jack. Hunter will be in the dugout again for the first time on Saturday as United travel to Brora in the quarter finals of the Highland League Cup.

 

Celtic kick are in action this evening as they look to book their place in the next round of the Europa League. The Scottish Champions hold a 1 nil advantage from the first leg at Celtic Park but will need to produce one of their best ever away European performances if they are to overcome Zenit Saint Petersburg. Arsenal go into their fixture knowing they're almost guaranteed a place in the last 16 of the competition. That's because they take a 3-0 advantage from the away leg into the game against Swedish side Ostersunds.

 

WINTER OLYMPICS

Great Britain's men's curling team are out of the Winter Olympics. They lost their play-off with Switzerland 9-5 after failing to guarantee themselves a semi-final spot at the group stage. Elsewhere Team GB skier Dave Ryding briefly held a medal position in the men's slalom final in South Korea - before ultimately finishing 9th. It's his best result at a Games. He'd been an outside hope for the podium after strong World Cup performances in the last year.


GOLF

Northern Ireland's Rory McIlory will be hoping to boost his Ryder Cup chances in Florida later. He's playing in the latest US PGA Tour golf event with qualifying for the matches in Paris in the autumn well underway. McIlroy lives near the Palm Beach course.

Tiger Woods will be one of America's vice-captains for the Ryder Cup golf clash with Europe in Paris later this year. US skipper Jim Furyk's also asked Steve Stricker to join his backroom team with former captain Davis Love a third assistant. Woods says he's still hoping to qualify as a player - despite only just returning from injury.

The 150th Open Championship golf will take place at St Andrews. The 2021 tournament was widely expected to return to the famous Fife course and organisers the R and A have now confirmed it as the venue. The tournament was last at the Old Course in 2015 - when American Zach Johnson won the Claret Jug.

Following a special meeting members at Royal Aberdeen Golf Club have voted overwhelmingly in favour to allow women members, a move which could pave the way for the return of the Scottish Open which was last played over the Balgownie links in 2014.

 

RUGBY

Scotland will be unchanged from their win over France when they take on England in the rugby union Six Nations in Edinburgh this weekend. Head coach Gregor Townsend's stuck with the same 15 that engineered a 32-26 victory in their last game. There are three changes to the bench, including Edinburgh's WP Nel, who's recovered from a broken arm. Scotland are looking for their first win over their old rivals since 2008.
