Despite enjoying a 3-2 win over their English media colleagues, Scotland's football press are crying foul about their opponents' team selection for Wednesday's "friendly" match at Luton.

Mark Bright, the Sheffield Wednesday striker and a BBC Radio Five Live match summariser, scored the second goal for the English press team, after which the Scots claimed that the home side had broken a pre-match agreement not to field any current professional players.

The Scots' first goal was scored by a former professional: Gordon Smith, now of BBC Radio Scotland but once of Brighton and Hove Albion, Manchester City and Rangers.

Another triumph for the Scottish press saw them beat the English 3 and 2 in a matchplay golf tournament at Stratford upon Avon.
