Chairman of the London Pensions Fund Authority (LPFA) Edi Truell is to advise the mayor of London on collaboration between local government pension schemes (LGPS) and infrastructure investment.He will resign as chairman of the London public sector scheme and will set up an advisory board for the newly established partnership between LPFA and the Lancashire County Pension Fund.The joint venture, called the London Lancashire Pensions Partnership (LLPP), was approved last month and Truell was instrumental in pushing forward the collaboration.Truell, who also co-founded bulk annuity provider Pension Insurance Corporation (PIC), will now work as an unpaid adviser to mayor Boris Johnson on pensions and investments. The idea is to push forward Johnson’s ambition to create a London infrastructure investment fund using assets from the capital’s LGPS.Truell will also advise of LGPS consolidation, a long-term ambition of his and the LPFA as demonstrated by its involvement in LLPP.Johnson firmly backs the merging of LGPS schemes in order to save on costs and create a combined fund that could invest in large scale infrastructure projects.However, a previous attempt to push for this by proposing the idea in a national newspaper, Johnson came under fire for confusing funded and unfunded public sector schemes and inappropriately labelling large Dutch pension funds as sovereign wealth funds.Johnson said Truell’s work leading the LPFA and moving it towards its partnership with Lancashire was a service to public finance.“If we now use this new partnership as a blueprint for further pooling of pension funds, we could have a war chest worth hundreds of billions of pounds and access to the kind of investment opportunities which have until now been the preserve of foreign sovereign wealth funds,” he added.The LPFA/Lancashire, which has combined assets of £10.5bn (€14.3bn), is aiming to commence operation in April 2016.Both schemes will maintain separate governance structures, with oversight boards in both London and Preston, but merge investments, liability management and administration.
Pixel.bet has launched a new betting platform focused purely on esports. The website has been launched in beta and will offer an array of odds for esports fans to bet on across the biggest esports titles and events. The website is initially launched in European countries, but will operate under a Curacao license and as such will not be available to UK punters unless the company obtains a license from the UK Gambling Commission. Currently the sleek looking website lists odds for League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2, Call of Duty, Starcraft II, Overwatch, Heroes of the Storm, Street Fighter and Rocket League. It’s a comprehensive list of games, so there’s no shortage for bettors to choose from. Interestingly, in the bottom right corner the website lists six of the largest esports teams: Team Liquid, Fnatic, Evil Geniuses, Virtus.pro, FaZe Clan and SK Gaming although clicking on each of the teams doesn’t actually do anything. Richard Smith, pixel.bet CEO, commented: “At present, eSports fans are not being served in the way they deserve. Their favourite games are tucked away in a small corner of a huge sports betting platform where the focus is football or tennis.“We want to change all that by focusing purely on the games we and they love. We know what they want because we want it to.“Pixel.bet has been designed to offer eSports fans a platform that is simple, fast and seamless. We spent a lot of time optimising the UX, making a solution that would be simple to place a bet while watching your favourite team playing live on Twitch.”Esports Insider says: Another dedicated esports operator enters the fray. The space is getting busier and busier as time goes on, and it still remains to be seen if traditional bookmakers are winning the battle over dedicated. This year will likely provide us with a big indication.
Alexandre Lacazette scored first goalLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Liverpool extended their perfect start to the Premier League title race as Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino sealed a 2-1 win at Southampton, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang fired Arsenal to a 2-1 victory over Burnley on Saturday.Jurgen Klopp’s side matched a club record of 11 successive Premier League wins to build on last week’s 4-1 thrashing of Norwich in their season opener.The Reds’ confident start to the season puts pressure on champions Manchester City to respond with a second win of their own when they host Tottenham later on Saturday.Liverpool took the lead in first half stoppage-time when Senegal winger Mane, who scored twice against Chelsea in the European Super Cup victory in midweek, returned to haunt his former club with an agile turn and curling strike into the far corner.Firmino made it two with his 49th league goal for Liverpool, the Brazil forward taking Mane’s pass, dribbling and then firing home in the 71st minute.Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian started despite suffering an ankle injury when a fan slid into him during the celebrations against Chelsea in Istanbul.But Adrian, deputising for the injured Alisson Becker, was guilty of a mistake in the 83rd minute when he hit a panicked clearance against Danny Ings, the ball bouncing off Southampton’s former Liverpool striker into the empty net.“I really loved how much respect we showed today,” Klopp said. “I said before the game that this looks like the biggest banana skin in history; everybody is waiting for it and probably all the headlines were written already.“I told the boys the headline I would prefer is ‘the mentality giants were in town’. That’s how I feel it in the moment. The boys did an outstanding job for today.”At the Emirates Stadium, Gabon forward Aubameyang was Arsenal’s match-winner again.Aubameyang had netted the only goal in last weekend’s victory at Newcastle and he emulated that crucial contribution with another decisive strike.Alexandre Lacazette’s first goal of the season had given Arsenal the lead before Ashley Barnes equalised for Burnley just before half-time.Failing to finish in the top four and losing the Europa League final against Chelsea robbed Arsenal of a Champions League place and led to a summer of recriminations as fans vented their frustrations. – ‘Thinking like a team’ –With two successive wins to start the season for the first time in 10 years, the early signs are promising for Unai Emery’s team ahead of sterner tests against Liverpool and Tottenham in their next two games.“We worked together with an individual quality and capacity, but above all thinking like a team,” said Emery.“Also, creating something special for each match with our supporters here at the Emirates. I think today we did that.”Teemu Pukki hit a hat-trick as Norwich clinched their first win of the season with a 3-1 victory against Newcastle at Carrow Road.Pukki gave Norwich the lead with a superb volley in the 32nd minute and the Finland striker grabbed his third goal in two games with a clinical finish in the 63rd minute.In the 75th minute, Pukki became the first Norwich player to score a Premier League treble since Efan Ekoku in 1993.Jonjo Shelvey’s stoppage-time goal was no consolation for Newcastle, who are pointless after their first two games under new boss Steve Bruce.Everton boss Marco Silva enjoyed a 1-0 win against his former club Watford at Goodison Park, the decisive goal coming when Bernard smashed home in the 10th minute.Bournemouth condemned Aston Villa to a second consecutive defeat with a 2-1 victory at Villa Park.Josh King scored an early penalty and Harry Wilson doubled the lead before Douglas Luiz got one back for Villa.Brighton drew 1-1 with West Ham at the Amex Stadium, with Javier Hernandez’s 61st minute opener for the visitors cancelled out by Belgian winger Leandro Trossard four minutes later.Share on: WhatsApp

Among the other competitors are Lauren Taylor (Woburn) who is the British champion and BBC Young Sports personality of the Year, Holly Clyburn (Woodhall Spa) also a member of the 2012 Curtis Cup team, and Georgia Hall (Remedy Oak), one of the team reserves.

Younger players are represented by English U13 champion Sammy Fuller of Surrey and U15 titleholder Gabriella Cowley of Essex, while Christine Watson of Buckinghamshire is a past English senior champion. Lancashire is providing a total of 19 players, among them girl internationals Emily Taylor and Brogan Townend (both Royal Lytham & St Annes) and Nikki Foster (Pleasington), who has also represented England.
