Gibraltar will be represented at the Commonwealth Youth Parliament (CYP) in New Zealand by Johan Perez and Oliver Whitmore. The two delegates were selected after an essay competition on the importance of the Commonwealth to Gibraltar. The essays were judged by retired headteachers Albert Danino and Ivan Navas.

St Joseph faced a nightmare start to their UEFA Conference League campaign. The side owned by Mike Garrick, formerly the owner of Burnley and recently having acquired Antequera CF, faced an immediate uphill struggle as they conceded in the very first minute of the match against Irish league leaders Shelbourne. An assist from Jarvis allowed Mark Coyle to score the goal, setting the tone for the two-legged tie. St Joseph, who had seen their bid for the league title fall away after leading the table, had been without competitive football since the end of May. Their opponents, in contrast, had won their last three league matches and drawn one, gaining a three-point lead in their domestic league table ahead of rivals Derry. The latter had just lost against Bruno Magpies moments earlier in Gibraltar. Once again, St Joseph lined up for a European match with a minimum of homegrown players....

Golden rays shone through moody fog. Swimming costumes dripped their last drops, flip-flops and sunscreen dragged with them, all hid behind boxes, as she packed away once again. Waves attacked the shore, currents like a washing machine; bubbles rose as creatures were dragged along. Struggled and fought free of rough surf. She felt their pain, as she herself had fought her own new battles the season brought. Hibernation for bears, bats, hedgehogs, had restful nights’ sleep, aquatic life, hardly such. Her favourite hobby; sun bathing, became replaced by huddling around fires, sunglasses by gloves, and sweat by chills. September rolled into October while once healthy leaves fell miserably to the ground, collected by dustbins and brushes. Puddles splashed, toddlers’ tear-stricken faces reflected by the waters’ debris. Lips, chameleon, completely blue. Her hands, coated by pink fluffy gloves. The red and green holly spirit came and went, wrapping paper bought, just...

Hamrun Spartan 0 – 1 Lincoln Red ImpsFirst leg, First Round Champions League Lincoln Red Imps started their Champions League campaign with some fortune as they took an early lead, which they protected until the final minute. Playing at the Centenary Stadium in Ta’ Qali, Malta, against Hamrun Spartans, Lincoln Red Imps found themselves with a player advantage in the first half before Britto scored. A 37th-minute goal from Ethan Britto rubbed salt into the wounds of Hamrun Spartans, as Lincoln Red Imps took the lead against a Maltese side reduced to ten men after just ten minutes of play. A straight red card for Elionay forced the hosts to play against Gibraltar’s league champions with one less player for the next eighty minutes. The goal before halftime came after Lincoln had placed Hamrun under significant pressure. Lincoln’s fortunes did not continue for long. Kike, who had been booked earlier,...

Kosovo U16 138-22 Gibraltar U16Men’s Eurobasket U16 Division C Gibraltar U16 men’s team suffered a blow to their confidence as Kosovo sought to build up their lead to humiliating levels with no concept of sportsmanship. The hefty 138-22 defeat for Gibraltar at the hands of Kosovo left an unsavory taste. Placed in Group B against San Marino, Armenia, and Kosovo, the Gibraltar U16 squad faced a tough start to their campaign in the Eurobasket Division C, opening with a match against Kosovo. Kosovo quickly demonstrated their high-octane style, taking their first two points within seconds by stealing on defense. Although Kosovo did not capitalize on their next two attempts, this allowed Gibraltar to score their first points through free shots. Gibraltar then attempted to find their footing on the court. Kosovo increased their lead to three points with their next basket, but Gibraltar, having played together longer this season, showed...

By David Hughes and Helen Corbett, PA Political Staff Rachel Reeves ordered Treasury officials to produce an assessment of the financial “mess” left by the Conservatives as she promised a new focus on generating economic growth. The Chancellor said the Government is ripping up planning rules to build more homes and critical infrastructure, saying she is prepared for “short-term political pain to fix Britain’s foundations”. Ms Reeves will deliver her first Budget in the autumn but as an immediate step she has asked civil servants to draw up an assessment of the current state of the economy and public finances. In a speech at the Treasury, she said: “We face the legacy of 14 years of chaos and economic irresponsibility. “That is why, over the weekend, I instructed Treasury officials to provide an assessment of our spending inheritance so that I can understand the full scale of the challenge, and I will present this...
