Tuesday 27th June

 

FOOTBALL
Aberdeen have confirmed the season long loan signing of Greg Stewart from Birmingham City. The 27 year old striker who had spells at Cowdenbeath and Dundee before heading south, has become the Dons third summer signing after Greg Tansey joined from Inverness Caley and Ryan Christie returning on loan from Celtic.

The 1st round of the IRN-BRU Cup was drawn today at Summerlee Museum, Coatbridge. Highland league champs Buckie Thistle have a home tie against Briechin city while runners up cover rangers will travel to face Stenhousemuir with 3rd place Formartine welcoming hearts colts to north lodge. Peterhead will travel to face East Fife in their opening tie of the competition while it will be a battle between Aberdeen’s youngsters as the colts of the dons go up against St, Johnstone.

In junior football, Alan Hale and his management team will return to the dugout as they take the reigns once again at Maud. Hale who had last season been manager at Highland League club Keith but chose to part company with the side in the close season and will now return to the club where he started his managerial career.

TENNIS

Andy Murray pulled out of an exhibition match earlier this afternoon because of a sore hip - just under a week before he begins his Wimbledon title defence. The world number one was due to play at the Hurlingham Club in London. Murray's withdrawal is said to be a precaution - and he could still play another scheduled exhibition on Friday.

DOPING SCANDAL

The World Anti-Doping Agency's given Russia some of its drug testing duties back, ending two years of complete suspension. Its staff were accused of helping cover up state sponsored cheating in 2015 - since then, UK Anti-Doping's been filling in. It'll continue to supervise as Russia's agency starts to "plan and co-ordinate" drug testing in the country.
