Get to the line Wardy.

Former City 'wing ace' Mark Ward has made the majority of the papers today as the trial began yesterday over his involvement in a plot to distribute cocaine.
Ward has actually pleaded guilty to a charge of intent to supply four kilos of cocaine.
Ward has admitted that the drugs were at his home but denied that they were his, although it is not clear if he was just minding them for a mate 'n that.
Ward will now face 'a trial within a trial' to determine the extent of his role in the operation, but he has been told it is 'inevitable' that he will face a prison sentance.
Ward played 69 times for City, scoring 16 goals between 1989-1991 during the Kendall and Reid eras.
