THIS WEEK'S EDITION:

Issue 759

This week in The Press, read how the existence of North Kirklees' top football club could be under threat due to a planning dispute.

Liversedge FC president Bob Gawthorpe has said he believes the club's days are numbered due to poor access at their Clayborn ground.

Hopes were raised that a planning development could be the solution, but this no longer looks to be the case.

Also we chat to 93-year-old Walter Walker, who this week received France's top military honour for his role in the D-Day landings.

The Batley war veteran spoke of his pride at receiving the Legion d'honneur when The Press visited him.

Plus, you can read the second part of our exclusive interview with Dewsbury MP Paula Sherriff.

In sport this week, Dewsbury Rams boss Glenn Morrison admits he is disappointed that several key players have left the Tetley's Stadium to join rival Championship clubs.

Meanwhile, Batley Bulldogs chairman Paul Harrison speaks of his excitement over the potential of new young coach Matt Diskin.

In other news amateur rugby league side Shaw Cross Sharks somehow avoided relegation in National Conference League Division One by the skin of their teeth, Dewsbury-born Sam Burgess has been named as England captain for the Four Nations by coach Wayne Bennett, Cleckheaton RU lose again in League Three North and a mounting injury crisis has put an end to Liversedge FC's early season form.
