Caught with their brief down

Ah, the routine perils of sports journalism: especially the "That's it, there's only a couple of minutes to go, I'll put the wrap on this and nip down to the pub" syndrome. So it was that Scotland on Sunday's report, as of 1AM, read: "The spoils were shared at the Strathclyde Homes Stadium in a dire 1-1 draw between Dumbarton and Stenhousemuir." If only, Sons fans would say! I imagine it'll be corrected in a later edition. But here's a gentle tip for subs... check the Beeb website before going to press. It was all there, er, eight hours ago.
