Football - The boy Dunne good - Ainsworth

Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth says there is a place in his starting line-up for Charles Dunne after the defender returned to Adams Park following a trial spell with Blackpool.

PA Sport Report

The 20-year-old left-back was in the Chairboys squad that played Eastleigh on Tuesday night having featured as a trialist for Paul Ince's men in a friendly at Penrith on Saturday.

And his manager is hoping Dunne gets the chance to develop with his League Two side after rumours of a bid from the Tangerines.

"Charles went up to Blackpool for a couple of days' training," Ainsworth told the Bucks Free Press. "He's back with us. As long as Charles Dunne's a Wycombe player he's got my left-back slot.

"It's between Blackpool and the club. I wouldn't like to get involved in any of that. While he's on the pitch it's good for the team.

"He's growing, still got a lot to learn, but he's one we hope will go on to be a great player, and we hope he can be for us this season."

Dunne was voted the club's most improved young player last season by supporters after impressing in his 42 appearances.

    Bell steers England to victory, hosts take 2-1 Ashes lead

    Ian Bell guided England to an eight-wicket victory over Australia in the third test at Edgbaston on Friday to put the hosts 2-1 up in the series with two matches to play. Bell (65 not out) and Joe Root, with an unbeaten 38, anchored the chase after England were set to 121 to win on the third day at Edgbaston where a dominant performance banished memories of a heavy defeat at Lord's. England lost Alastair Cook (7) and Adam Lyth (12) to set a few nerves on edge but Bell, dropped on 20 by Australia captain Michael Clarke, made his second 50 of the match to spark raucous celebrations after Root hit the winning runs.

    No snow no problem as China's financial might lands 2022 Games

    The snow will be fake, but the very real financial muscle China boasts proved decisive on Friday when Beijing won the right to host the 2022 Winter Olympics. Games officials meeting in Kuala Lumpur voted for the Chinese capital over the lure of a winter wonderland offering from Kazakhstan's Almaty, in a clear sign that the International Olympic Committee is craving solidity and security after a series of problems and headaches. While Rio scrambles to make up lost time in its building for the 2016 Olympics, and Tokyo is embroiled in a stadium drama the allure of a megacity with a cast-iron financial guarantee proved irresistible.
