Romanian club forfeits game to attend player's wedding
Romanian side Poiana Mare Youth were all set for their Liga 4 Dolj clash against CS Carcea until they realised there was a rather important event happening at the same time.
Posting on their Facebook account, the club revealed that they were unable to fulfil the fixture as the team had to attend the wedding of their colleague.
Deliu Ionut and Diana "chose to sign the contract of life and get married" and as a result the team forfeited the game 3-0.
Still, a post of the happy team celebrating the special day simply said: "Lost a game, but won a family."
Robben swims for charity
Former Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben has a lot of spare time on his hands now he's retired and he seems happy to spend some of that in the water.

We can only imagine that he started on the right side of the river, before cutting back inside onto the left before he finished.

We have now sent @RICHARD_ALI_SON an email with the information required so we can help with with his visa for the trial— Cork City FC (@CorkCityFC) August 31, 2019
Cork kept up their end of the bargain at least, with the promise of a trial coming. The side are currently seventh in the 10-team Irish Premier Division, so perhaps they could use all the help they can get.
