Matt Hirst and Declan Dear won the 2019 Pirelli Motorsport UK Welsh Forest Rally Championship in style by taking outright victory on the final round of the series, the Winner Garage Wyedean Stages Rally. Russ Thompson and Andy Murphy led the Championship going into the Forest of Dean finale, only needing a solid finish to clinch the title. But when they retired with mechanical problems on the opening stage, that gave Hirst and Dear an opportunity to steal the title in their similar Mitsubishi Evo 9. It would be no easy task for Hirst, as the 2018 Welsh Junior Champion still needed an outright win to steal the crown.
Ffion Tynon has been selected for Wales at senior women’s golf for the time after making the team to compete at the South American Amateur Championships in Chile in January. The highly promising 16-year-old has been included in the Welsh line-up for the open team event after a string of impressive performances at recent tournaments. Tynon finished seventh at this summer’s English Girls Open Amateur Championship – an event for U18s – tasted victory at the Sir Henry Cooper Junior Masters and earned third place at the Welsh Ladies Amateur Championship.
Cardiff City are seeking a new manager, the 10th who will have managed the club in some form or other over the past 10 years. But the legacy and impact of Neil Warnock is one that stands alone in a turbulent decade, says Josh Thomas. The Sevenside Derby is almost up and Bristol City are attacking towards the Canton Stand. The ball is slipped through to Kasey Palmer but Leandro Bacuna comes across to clear the danger and send the ball upfield in search for a Cardiff City equaliser. Moments later the final whistle blows and The Robins secure their first away win over the Bluebirds in 17 years. Loud boos are heard from all parts of the stadium, some fans sit down, dejected, while others stand up hurling abuse towards the players and, in particular, manager Neil Warnock.
Hollie Arnold celebrated her fourth consecutive World Para Athletics title on Monday, but instantly turned her attention to re-claiming her world record at next year's Paralympics in Tokyo. The Loughborough-based athlete set a new personal best on her way to the F46 title in Dubai, but fell short of regaining the world record she broke to claim gold for Wales at the Commonwealth Games in Australia, last year. Having pouched her fourth world title, Arnold's focus is now on Paralympic gold and the world record she lost to New Zealand's Holly Robinson in April.
Jackson Page claimed the biggest win of his professional career to progress to the second round of the 19.com Northern Ireland Open. The Ebbw Vale teenager looked to be heading out of the second of four Home Nations events when he trailed veteran Barry Pinches 3-1 in their best-of-seven encounter on Monday night. But breaks of 81 and 71 either side of a scrappy sixth frame booked the 18-year-old’s place in the last 64 – where last weekend’s Champion of Champions winner Neil Robertson potentially lies in wait.
