6:33 pm
tonight's programme. on another disastrous day for england's batsmen, swept aside for a meagre 67 all out on day two of the third ashes test their lowest score in the ashes since 1948. well, our correspondent andy swiss is there for us. this was a crucial day for england and quite simply they blew it, didn't they? they did holly, yes. bearin didn't they? they did holly, yes. bear in mind that england fans arrived here this morning and pretty bullish mood after the way they dismissed australia for a relatively low score yesterday. the sun was shining, on the face but it seemed decent conditions for batting but australia's boers make sure that it certainly wasn't as england succumbed to one of those batting colla pses succumbed to one of those batting collapses that we have come to know only too well. jason roy the first man to go. he was out forjust signed by david warner when a4 catches for enforcing the go the
6:34 pm
england captain joe root catches for enforcing the go the england captainjoe root who was out for a duck. at that stage people —— things were looking perilous for england but it went from bad to worse as the wickets continued to tumble. ben stokes out to a horrible shot there for just eight. that was probably the lowest of the many low points in england's innings. from there it went from bad to worse. joe didn't meet top score with 12 before he was dismissed. and by the time that jack leach became the last man out, england had been dismissed for 67, there lowest score against australia since 1948 dismissed in a space of barely two and a quarter hours and fairto space of barely two and a quarter hours and fair to say it has left them with a mountain to climb holly. andy i think i can see some of the england fans leaving behind you. australia giving them nothing to hang around for, are they? no, not a great deal. england's bowlers knew
6:35 pm
they needed something special indeed if they were going to call their way back into this match and for a short while there was a bit of promise because england got off to a good start. stu would broad taken the first wicket, that of david warner. warner lbw four not. at that stage england fans might have been hoping that something special would happen. then they got a second wicket after that, jack leach is spinning out marcus harris for 19. england off to a reasonable start but they needed to keep taking wickets, they could not do that and in the last hour or so, matthew wade and his partner have taken the match beyond england's grasses. australia's weighed more than 250 heading into —— having seen a few ashes miracles a few years, remember will remember the ashes of 1981. england will need another miracle otherwise the ashes are surely gone. andy swiss at headingley, thank you. it's a dark day for
6:36 pm
bury and its fans. in just over five hours, the club will cease to exist unless a buyer can be found by midnight tonight. the english football league says it's "working tirelessly to achieve a solution" — while its owner steve dale has made a desperate plea to the public to pledge funds. i spoke to dale earlier today and he told me there is still "prospective buyer" and he shouldn't be blamed for the crisis. we are extensively along the road 110w we are extensively along the road now with the potential buyer. he has done always various checks with the cba and all of the things from that. he has spoke to the efl, nick craig in there. he is in all his checks with them. and we are hopeful that they can come to the table at this late stage. i'm not in control, it is like watching a car crash but you are not holding the steering wheel.
6:37 pm
we need to try and come up with a plan to help. but what i am getting sick of his being blamed for someone else's debt. i do not run up this debt with the club. the club was blessed beyond belief when i took over. it's now sustainable and it seems criminal that they would allow other clubs in administration to play football, get their money awards from the week, but bury had barely had a penny after that. i heard that she had helped us. we have received not one... the only action stopping very football club 110w action stopping very football club now are those of the afl. there is now are those of the afl. there is no monetary requirement now for that code to trade. none whatsoever. —— those of the efl. you are a businessman, you were hoping to make money off of it stop it will know. i swear to god. i don't want to blame —— when thomas now, but if you ask when thomas, ask him what i said to
6:38 pm
him. igot when thomas, ask him what i said to him. i got a second chance with my help. and he said "you're supposed be dying". well unfortunately with leukaemia, you get windows, you get six months pass where you well, you going another six wins and then they say "it's back and you have three months". this sort of happens all the time. you never know. do i need this? no, i want to get off. because iam sick this? no, i want to get off. because i am sick of people having a go at me for something i didn't do. this time tomorrow where do you see this ending? i'm hoping i'm having a pint and bury is safe! i really do because it has been seven months of hell. it has been four days ofjust total total devastation for me and my family total total devastation for me and myfamily and total total devastation for me and my family and my friends. i would like to get it over today and not have the threat for the club and put it on have the threat for the club and put itona have the threat for the club and put it on a more level keel. and then invite people and say look, just buy
6:39 pm
it. just buy it. it's level, it is working, it's everything at should be. that is steve deals d-link -- speaking with me today. supporters and residents of bury have been making their way to gigg lane this afternoon, leaving messages and rallying together in support. our correspondentjudith moretz is there this evening. we have seen so many of these protests away. those coffins we saw the top of the programme. what's the mood there this evening? despite the sunshine and people sitting on deck chairs, this is not the start of the bank holiday weekend that the supporters wanted, they are not here enjoying themselves. it is an angry atmosphere and there is a lot of resignation as well because half of the fans i have spoken to are convinced they will never see their tea m convinced they will never see their team play again. the other half are still hoping that some miracle will happen. they have said it would literally be the 11th hour. but there is also a lot of confusion because they are hearing mixed
6:40 pm
m essa 9 es because they are hearing mixed messages there steering see sam one hand he has a buy that also hearing him say early on today that he would like to see supporters pledge their allegiance by pledging money. —— they are hearing steve deal say. that's created confusion where things are of two and anger about the lack of information and transparency and the way this club is had such a chorus past and a wonderful 134 year history winning the fa cup twice, these are fans faithful. i've spoken to generations ofafamily faithful. i've spoken to generations of a family who have come along here and say we live and breathe this. this is our club. greater manchester may be home to much bigger clubs but something like bury where you have a gate of an average of 4000 people up ona gate of an average of 4000 people up on a good day, they are saying that matters to the 4000 people, the wider town, and the rest of the we watching so closely. this is a big deal. they are all watching out to see if time ticks along up until midnight what will happen. def l today have said they are working
6:41 pm
tirelessly to find a resolution but the most recent information we have had from the league is that the deal itself has not been making great progress. “— itself has not been making great progress. —— the efl. judith moretz at bury football club. thank you. very incredible to see that support there. if there is any update, we will let you know about the programme. there are six games tomorrow in the premier league. the standout fixture is the late kick off at anfield when liverpool host arsenal. they slipped to a 21 loss to bournemouth last week. one of four sites of lost their opening two matches. alastair is at villa park forest. it is a chorus evening at villa park for real old—school english fixture in the league. aston villa against everton. everton with the chance to talk does early premier league table tonight if they can win the game. for commentary on bbc radio five live alongside former
6:42 pm
england international karen carney. aston villa have played very well in their first two games but they have not got any points yet. how does that feel as a player in the dressing room? a bit frustrating. you probably have that would've bit of anxiety and you want to have points on the board. they have created a lot of chances but silly m ista kes created a lot of chances but silly mistakes have cost them in the games they've played so far. it will be a bit stressful especially at home but a good start will be key. what is impressed you most about everton this season? they had been superb defensively. they have not been flying in front of gold but they have kept to clean sheets and that's what you need to do to win games and get results. i am impressed with how defensive they have been. karen and i bring you the tarrant bbc rio five live aston villa against everton, kicking off at five p:m.. thank you both. there are six games tomorrow in the premier league. the standout fixture is the late kick off at anfield when liverpool host arsenal. both teams having won their two opening games. frank lampard has meanwhile not had
6:43 pm
the best of starts since joining chelsea from derby — a 4—0 thrashing at manchester united, followed by a 1—1 draw at home to leicester. they face norwich on saturday in the lunchtime kick—off. norwich away is not an ideal fixture. it's a tough match. i note that the last team to beat them there were derby in december or january that we went there and it was a tough match and it was hard for us and they proved it last year and it proves a step up is not a problem for them. i have huge respect for them and the fans were buzzing, the club is going in the right direction, them in anne's field, those are tough games to play. let's take a look at some of the day's other stories. rangers have been ordered to close part of ibrox for next week's still to come on sportsday... from a champions league win with liverpool to managing real sociadad. we speak to xabi alonso about his newjob in football. we'll be in new york previewing the aurora games where team usa take on the rest of the world.
6:44 pm
i expect the best. nadia, she expects the best. friendly competition, they do want to win. this weekend sees rugby league showpiece, the challenge cup final when st helens take on warrington wolves at wembley. it's been a while since either of them won it — warrington in 2012 and for saints, it was all the way back in 2008. well ahead of tomorrow's showdown i spoke to st helens winger tommy makinson and warrington centre luther burrell. and i started by asking tommy about his club's long wait to reclaim the title. a cup like saint helen's 11 years is a long time. a lot of expectation the way this season has been going. flying in the league and doing well. we expect to do well in this one. public we can make that happen. luther for you you have public we can make that happen. lutherfor you you have been public we can make that happen. luther for you you have been unable journey. how's thatjourney been for you? up untilthis

6:46 pm
helen's have the edge after that victory a couple weeks ago? we had played them three times this year and we have three victories but eve ryo ne and we have three victories but everyone will say that. but i think a cup competition is totally different. 80 minutes away for both teams and just a different feel and cup teams and just a different feel and cup games. teams and just a different feel and cup games. you hope to have a performance on the day, and that is the beauty of this competition. the victories over warrington this year, i think tom is lying, i think he is quite weak confident. tommy may consent and with the burrell there. and there's full coverage of the challenge cup final tomorrow on bbc one from 2pm. with less than a month until the rugby world cup, there's been a significant departure from the england set up. their youth pathway chief jim mallinder is moving north of the border to become scottish rugby‘s new performance director. andy burke has more.

wa nted came with northampton where he wanted premiership title and european challenge cup before returning to the england set up in 2018 as performance pathway coach. now he is heading north to link up with scotland. tremendous appointment out of the blue. taking him from england to scottish rugby, it will make a difference in the timing is perfectjust before the world cup. coming off a bad defeat against france. he could come in and make a big difference. they could go to the world cup, and when it, i don't see why not. jim mallinder an interested spectator as they take in france and merryfield tomorrow looking to avenge the loss that they suffered in france last weekend. you can look back or you like and you and not get much from it. but i will forward to the first ten minutes of the game. that will be where we set our style tomorrow. if scotland or to generate any momentum ahead of japan, a win tomorrow is a must.

6:53 pm
what are the aurora games? basically it is six sports across six different places. it is team america against team world and it is all in order to showcase the very best of women's sports. not bad, is it? and it is the brainchild of sports agent jerry solomon. women sports gets 4% of jerry solomon. women sports gets 496 of the global coverage in the press. what that has got to grow. when i was a young kid i went to the very first super bowl and if people had said then that they were going to be 52 of them, i don't think anybody in that sitting would have thought that there was a chance that was going to happen. the events taking place in albany, the capital of new york state and it is fitting really when you can consider this was one of the first state in the usa to give women the right to vote. the event has drawn ina the right to vote. the event has drawn in a wide range of talents
