LEICESTERSHIRE
TAKE
OVER
AT
TOP
AFTER
INNINGS
VICTORY
.
LONDON
1996-08-30
West
Indian
all-rounder
Phil
Simmons
took
four
for
38
on
Friday
as
Leicestershire
beat
Somerset
by
an
innings
and
39
runs
in
two
days
to
take
over
at
the
head
of
the
county
championship
.
Their
stay
on
top
,
though
,
may
be
short-lived
as
title
rivals
Essex
,
Derbyshire
and
Surrey
all
closed
in
on
victory
while
Kent
made
up
for
lost
time
in
their
rain-affected
match
against
Nottinghamshire
.
After
bowling
Somerset
out
for
83
on
the
opening
morning
at
Grace
Road
,
Leicestershire
extended
their
first
innings
by
94
runs
before
being
bowled
out
for
296
with
England
discard
Andy
Caddick
taking
three
for
83
.
Trailing
by
213
,
Somerset
got
a
solid
start
to
their
second
innings
before
Simmons
stepped
in
to
bundle
them
out
for
174
.
Essex
,
however
,
look
certain
to
regain
their
top
spot
after
Nasser
Hussain
and
Peter
Such
gave
them
a
firm
grip
on
their
match
against
Yorkshire
at
Headingley
.
Hussain
,
considered
surplus
to
England
's
one-day
requirements
,
struck
158
,
his
first
championship
century
of
the
season
,
as
Essex
reached
372
and
took
a
first
innings
lead
of
82
.
By
the
close
Yorkshire
had
turned
that
into
a
37-run
advantage
but
off-spinner
Such
had
scuttled
their
hopes
,
taking
four
for
24
in
48
balls
and
leaving
them
hanging
on
119
for
five
and
praying
for
rain
.
At
the
Oval
,
Surrey
captain
Chris
Lewis
,
another
man
dumped
by
England
,
continued
to
silence
his
critics
as
he
followed
his
four
for
45
on
Thursday
with
80
not
out
on
Friday
in
the
match
against
Warwickshire
.
He
was
well
backed
by
England
hopeful
Mark
Butcher
who
made
70
as
Surrey
closed
on
429
for
seven
,
a
lead
of
234
.
Derbyshire
kept
up
the
hunt
for
their
first
championship
title
since
1936
by
reducing
Worcestershire
to
133
for
five
in
their
second
innings
,
still
100
runs
away
from
avoiding
an
innings
defeat
.
After
the
frustration
of
seeing
the
opening
day
of
their
match
badly
affected
by
the
weather
,
Kent
stepped
up
a
gear
to
dismiss
Nottinghamshire
for
214
.
They
were
held
up
by
a
gritty
84
from
Paul
Johnson
but
ex-England
fast
bowler
Martin
McCague
took
four
for
55
.
By
stumps
Kent
had
reached
108
for
three
.

SHEARER
NAMED
AS
ENGLAND
CAPTAIN
.
LONDON
1996-08-30
The
world
's
costliest
footballer
Alan
Shearer
was
named
as
the
new
England
captain
on
Friday
.
The
26-year-old
,
who
joined
Newcastle
for
15
million
pounds
sterling
(
$
23.4
million
)
,
takes
over
from
Tony
Adams
,
who
led
the
side
during
the
European
championship
in
June
,
and
former
captain
David
Platt
.
Adams
and
Platt
are
both
injured
and
will
miss
England
's
opening
World
Cup
qualifier
against
Moldova
on
Sunday
.
Shearer
takes
the
captaincy
on
a
trial
basis
,
but
new
coach
Glenn
Hoddle
said
he
saw
no
reason
why
the
former
Blackburn
and
Southampton
skipper
should
not
make
the
post
his
own
.
"
I
'm
sure
there
wo
n't
be
a
problem
,
I
'm
sure
Alan
is
the
man
for
the
job
,
"
Hoddle
said
.
"
There
were
three
or
four
people
who
could
have
done
it
but
when
I
spoke
to
Alan
he
was
up
for
it
and
really
wanted
it
.
"
In
four
days
it
's
very
difficult
to
come
to
a
100
percent
conclusion
about
something
like
this
...
but
he
knows
how
to
conduct
himself
,
his
team
mates
respect
him
and
he
knows
about
the
team
situation
even
though
he
plays
up
front
.
"
Shearer
's
Euro
96
striking
partner
Teddy
Sheringham
withdrew
from
the
squad
with
an
injury
on
Friday
.
He
will
probably
be
replaced
by
Shearer
's
Newcastle
team
mate
Les
Ferdinand

FANS
LOCKED

VIOLENCE
.
MOSCOW
1996-08-30
Rotor
Volgograd
must
play
their
next
home
game
behind
closed
doors
after
fans
hurled
bottles
and
stones
at
Dynamo
Moscow
players
during
a
1-0
home
defeat
on
Saturday
that
ended
Rotor
's
brief
spell
as
league
leaders
.
The
head
of
the
Russian
league
's
disciplinary
committee
,
Anatoly
Gorokhovsky
,
said
on
Friday
that
Rotor
would
play
Lada
Togliatti
to
empty
stands
on
September
3
.
The
club
,
who
put
Manchester
United
out
of
last
year
's
UEFA
Cup
,
were
fined
$
1,000
.
Despite
the
defeat
,
Rotor
are
well
placed
with
11
games
to
play
in
the
championship
.
Lying
three
points
behind
Alania
and
two
behind
Dynamo
Moscow
,
the
Volgograd
side
have
a
game
in
hand
over
the
leaders
and
two
over

PANAMA
'S
ROBERTO
DURAN
FIGHTS
THE
SANDS
OF
TIME
.
PANAMA
CITY
1996-08-30
Panamanian
boxing
legend
Roberto
"
Hands
of
Stone
"
Duran
climbs
into
the
ring
on
Saturday
in
another
age-defying
attempt
to
sustain
his
long
career
.
Duran
,
45
,
takes
on
little-known
Mexican
Ariel
Cruz
,
30
,
in
a
super
middleweight
non-title
bout
in
Panama
City
.
The
fight
,
Duran
's
first
on
home
soil
for
10
years
,
is
being
billed
here
as
the
"
Return
of
the
Legend
"
and
Duran
still
talks
as
if
he
was
in
his
prime
.
"
I
want
a
fifth
title
.
This
match
is
to
prepare
me
.
I
feel
good
.
I
'm
not
retiring
,
"
Duran
told
Reuters
.
But
those
close
to
the
boxer
acknowledge
that
the
man
who
has
won
championships
in
four
different
weight
classes
--
lightweight
,
welterweight
,
junior
middleweight
and
middleweight
--
is
drawing
close
to
the
end
of
his
career
.
"
Each
time
he
fights
,
he
's
on
the
last
frontier
of
his
career
.
If
he
loses
Saturday
,
it
could
devalue
his
position
as
one
of
the
world
's
great
boxers
,
"
Panamanian
Boxing
Association
President
Ramon
Manzanares
said
.
Duran
,
whose
97-12
record
spans
three
decades
,
hopes
a
win
in
the
10-round
bout
will
earn
him
a
rematch
against
Puerto
Rico
's
Hector
"
Macho
"
Camacho
.
Camacho
took
a
controversial
points
decision
against
the
Panamanian
in
Atlantic
City
in
June
in
a
title
fight

TWIN
UPSETS
UNDER
THE
LIGHTS
.
Larry
Fine
NEW
YORK
1996-08-30
Andre
Agassi
escaped
disaster
on
Thursday
but
Wimbledon
finalist
MaliVai
Washington
and
Marcelo
Rios
were
not
so
fortunate
on
a
night
of
upsets
at
the
U.S.
Open
.
The
11th-seeded
Washington
fell
short
of
reprising
his
Wimbledon
miracle
comeback
as
he
lost
to
red-hot
wildcard
Alex
O'Brien
6-3
6-4
5-7
3-6
6-3
in
a
two
hour
51
minute
struggle
on
the
Stadium
court
.
Next
door
on
the
grandstand
,
10th
seed
Rios
lost
to
another
player
with
a
Wimbledon
connection
--
bad
boy
Jeff
Tarango
.
The
temperamental
left-hander
defeated
the
Chilean
6-4
4-6
7-6
6-2
.
The
day
programme
went
smoothly
although
sixth-seeded
former
champion
Agassi
had
to
wriggle
out
of
a
dangerous
3-6
0-4
hole
,
winning
18
of
the
last
19
games
against
India
's
Leander
Paes
.
But
the
night
belonged
to
the
upstarts
.
Washington
,
who
climbed
back
from
a
1-5
deficit
,
two
sets
down
in
the
third
set
against
Todd
Martin
in
the
Wimbledon
semifinals
,
looked
poised
for
another
sensational
comeback
.
O'Brien
,
a
winner
two
weeks
ago
in
New
Haven
for
his
first
pro
title
,
served
for
the
match
at
5-4
in
the
third
set
before
Washington
came
charging
back
.
"
I
just
kept
saying
to
myself
,
'
keep
giving
yourself
the
best
chance
to
win
,
keep
battling
,
maybe
something
will
happen
,
'
"
said
the
26-year-old
O'Brien
,
ranked
65th
.
"
I
kept
my
composure
and
I
was
proud
of
myself
for
that
--
usually
I
would
have
folded
up
the
tent
and
gone
home
.
"
The
hard-serving
O'Brien
,
a
former
U.S.
collegiate
national
champion
,
fired
up
17
aces
to
ultimately
subdue
the
never-say-die
Washington
.
The
fifth
set
stayed
on
serve
until
the
sixth
game
,
when
Washington
,
after
saving
one
break
point
with
a
forehand
winner
down
the
line
,
netted
a
backhand
to
give
O'Brien
a
4-2
lead
.
The
Texan
blasted
in
two
aces
to
hold
serve
at
5-2
and
then
converted
his
eighth
match
point
for
victory
when
Washington
found
the
net
with
another
backhand
from
40-0
.
"
You
just
kind
of
keep
fighting
and
you
keep
trying
to
make
him
play
a
little
bit
.
I
think
he
got
a
little
tight
at
a
couple
of
moments
,
"
said
Washington
.
"
But
I
think
he
served
pretty
well
when
he
had
to
.
"
Tarango
,
whose
Wimbledon
tantrum
two
years
ago
brought
him
a
$
28,000
fine
and
suspension
from
this
year
's
tournament
at
the
All-England
Club
,
argued
calls
and
taunted
fans
in
his
lively
two
hour
,
24
minute
tango
with
Rios
on
the
grandstand
.
A
boisterous
cheering
section
backed
the
distracted
Chilean
and
booed
the
lanky
American
,
who
ate
up
all
the
attention
.
"
I
'm
an
emotional
player
,
"
said
the
104th-ranked
Tarango
.
"
I
think
I
played
very
well
tonight
,
very
focused
.
"
The
match
turned
on
the
third-set
tiebreaker
,
which
the
American
won
7-5
much
to
the
dismay
of
the
spectators
.
"
I
love
the
crowd
if
they
boo
me
every
day
.
It
fires
me
up
,
makes
me
play
my
best
tennis
,
"
Tarango
said
.
"
I
played
some
of
my
best
tennis
in
college
when
fraternities
were
throwing
beer
on
me
.
If
tennis
was
like
that
every
day
,
I
think
everybody
wold
be
having
a
lot
more
fun
.
"
Rios
did
not
appreciate
Tarango
's
antics
.
"
He
's
always
complaining
too
much
,
"
said
Rios
.
"
But
I
think
it
's
not
that
.
I
think
I
played
really
bad
.
It
was
tough
to
play
at
night
.
Balls
were
going
really
fast
.
I
lost
too
many
points
that
I
never
lose
.
I
did
n't
play
my
tennis
.
"
"
I
do
n't
see
the
ball
like
I
see
during
the
day
.
I
play
an
American
so
that
's
why
I
play
at
night
.
I
did
n't
feel
good
on
the
court
.
"
At
the
end
of
the
match
,
Tarango
blew
sarcastic
kisses
to
the
crowd
,
then
jiggled
his
body
to
a
Rios
rooting
section
in
a
jeering
salute
.
"
I
support
their
enthusiasm
,
"
Tarango
said
about
the
fans
.
"
At
the
same
time
,
they
're
cheering
blatantly
against
me
.
After
I
won
I
figured
I
could
give
them
a
little
razzle-dazzle
.

FOOTBALL-RANDALL
CUNNINGHAM
RETIRES
.
PHILADELPHIA
1996-08-29
Randall
Cunningham
,
the
National
Football
League
's
all-time
leading
rusher
as
a
quarterback
and
one
of
the
most
athletic
players
ever
to

up
over
centre
,
retired
Thursday
.
Cunningham
played
his
entire
11-year
career
with

like
to

the
Eagles
organisation
and
the
wonderful
fans
of
Philadelphia
for
supporting
me
throughout
my
career
,
"
Cunningham
said
.
"
Although
it
saddens
me
to
leave
,
I
am
looking
forward
to
spending
more
time
with
my
family
and
pursuing
other
interests
that
have
been
on
the
back
burner
for
sometime
.
"
"
Randall
was
one
of
the
most
exciting
quarterbacks
in
NFL
history
,
"
said
Eagles
owner
Jeffrey
Lurie
.
"
During
his
11
years
in
Philadelphia
,
Randall
was
the
cornerstone
of
the
Eagles
'
franchise
and
brought
many
great
moments
to
fans
in
Philadelphia
as
well
as
across
the
NFL
.
"
A
second-round
choice
in
1985
,
Cunningham
completed

to
grab
a
two-shot
lead
after
the
opening
round
of
the

Tuesday
after

third
successive

Championship
,
almost
eagled
the
18th
hole
.
He
settled
for
a
birdie
and
a
four-under
opening
round
that
left
him
five
shots
off
the
pace
.
"
Yesterday
was
the

day
I
've
had
for

long
time
,
"
Woods
said
.
"
Today
,
I

to
play

"
He
added
:
"
I
thought
I

I
'm
in

long
time

My
short
game
has
improved
since
I
've
had
to
use
it
so
often
.
That
's
always
been
the
worst
part

All
in

bad
