Wednesday 26th April

 

FOOTBALL
Former Peterhead forward Shane Sutherland has agreed a new two year deal with Elgin.  The 26 year old, who spent last season at Balmoor, has been in fine form for the League 2 play-off hopefuls scoring 24 goals.  However, Sutherland has missed the last couple of months through injury. 

Hibs are back in action tonight, after their Scottish Cup semi final defeat to Aberdeen.  The Championship winners are at home to Raith, who sit just a point above the relegation play-off place. 

Tottenham will try to cut Chelsea's lead at the top of the Premier League back down to four points later. The pacesetters beat Southampton 4-2 last night - Spurs go to Crystal Palace this evening.  Elsewhere, Arsenal can move above Everton into sixth place by beating champions Leicester. There's a battle between the division's bottom two sides with Middlesbrough at home to Sunderland.

GOLF

The 9th hole at Cruden Bay Golf Club is one of the best in the country, that’s according to tourism body VisitScotland.  It claimed the award for best view following a poll of more than 3000 golfers around the UK.  The course, which has stirring views across the Bay of Cruden and Slains Castle, triumphed against stiff competition.  The overall best hole was awarded to the 18th at the Old Course in St Andrews. 

TENNIS

Andy Murray aims for a place in round three of the Barcelona Open tennis later.  Australia's Bernard Tomic stands in the world number one's way.  Murray was given a wildcard for this event after making an early exit in his opening clay-court tournament in Monte Carlo. 

Maria Sharapova makes her controversial return to tennis after a 15-month drugs ban later.  She begins her Stuttgart Open campaign against Roberta Vinci

SNOOKER

Five-time champion Ronnie O'Sullivan will resume this afternoon facing a huge task to reach the World Snooker Championship semi-finals. He trails last year's beaten finalist Ding Junhui 10-6 in their best of 25 frames encounter. This morning, multiple winner John Higgins restarts 11-5 up on Kyren Wilson. Defending champion Mark Selby leads 6-2 against Marco Fu - that's back underway this morning as well.

BOXING

Ricky Burns says he's not going to give up on his boxing career - despite losing his world title unification fight in Glasgow last night. The Scot went down to a unanimous points decision to Namibian Julius Indongo - who now holds the WBA, IBF and IBO super-lightweight belts.

RUGBY

Stuart Hogg is one of just two Scotland players that have been named in the British and Irish Lions rugby union squad.  The full-back's joined by Glasgow team-mate Tommy Seymour.  It's Hogg's second tour after being part of victory in Australia four years ago. 

MOTORSPORT

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel is seven points clear of Britain's Lewis Hamilton in the F1 drivers' standings.  That's after he won the Bahrain Grand Prix, where Hamilton - who came second - was given a five-second penalty.  He was punished for driving slowly on his way into the pit, to slow down Daniel Ricciardo. Hamilton's Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas finished third - Renault's British driver Jolyon Palmer was 13th.
