Another successful Golf Day

31 July 2019

Accrington Stanley's annual Golf Day proved to be another success as 15 teams competed at Accrington Golf Club yesterday afternoon.

Yesterday saw the club's second Stanley Golf Day at Accrington Golf Club take place with fans, players and sponsors competing and having fun in what was a great day out, despite the challenging weather conditions.

Teams of three were accompanied by a member of the club's playing or management staff as they took part in the 18-hole competition.

The overall winners of the team event were the Carlsberg team which consisted of John Webb, Mick Hardman, Kevin Fish and Stanley midfielder Jordan Clark, as they scored 95 points.

In second place came the TG Plastics team who scored 93 points, and consisted of Sam Walsh, Ged Walsh, Andy Miller and Stanley manager John Coleman.

Winner of the longest drive on the 6th hole went to Sean McConville, who accompanied the Recycle IT team.

TG Plastics' Sam Walsh collected the prize for nearest to the pin on the 18th hole, which was just his second shot!

New signing Colby Bishop also claimed the accolade for the nearest to the pin on the 12th hole, as he accompanied the Official Accrington Stanley Supporters Club (OASSC) team.

The club would like to thank Hindle & Jepson Financial Services Limited for sponsoring the prizes on the day.

Peter Leatham, Chairman of the OASSC said: “It is always a pleasure to organise events which bring the club and the local communities closer together and we are indebted to the 15 local companies that supported the Golf Day.

"Accrington Golf Club is an ideal venue and we are always well looked after."

Daniel Bowerbank, Stanley's Commercial Manager added: “The Golf Day was a huge success once again, this year with 15 teams who enjoyed the afternoon out on the greens of Accrington Golf Club.

"Despite the on and off weather throughout the afternoon every team enjoyed the day and we look forward to planning next year's event to make it even better."
