Autumn chill is here but our sports stars are warming up

Editor's Viewpoint

Now that autumn is officially here and the nights have started to draw in, it can only mean one thing - the sports season is about to get into full swing.

And tonight fans of soccer, rugby and ice hockey will have the opportunity to cheer on their heroes as Northern Ireland's European championship qualifying bid reaches its crucial juncture, Ulster takes on the Ospreys and the Belfast Giants open their ice hockey campaign in a Fantastic Friday of sport.

Northern Ireland is a small province but in sport it can hold its head up high even among the giants of the various games and no doubt fans will have much to cheer about this winter.
