York City Past Players Charity Golf Day

With some Covid-19 restrictions now being lifted, we are very confident that this year’s York City Past Players Charity Golf Day will go ahead at Pike Hills Golf Course on Thursday July 22, 2021.

Last year we supported Daniel Parslow’s Benefit Year and Headway as Daniel’s nominated charity, and we have decided to donate all proceeds from this years’ event to “Headway, the brain injury association”  with many footballers now being affected by neurological disorders.

A team of four people, in addition to their game of golf, will each receive a bacon sandwich and coffee prior to their round finishing with a bar meal for a cost of £120 per team. Further details and application forms from gram.badbury@virgin.net

As we embark upon the club’s centenary season we are mindful to celebrate and remember some of the players that represented our favourite football team in its one hundred year history. We are therefore asking if there are any fans or businesses who would like to sponsor a tee-sign named after a player?

Already the Fenton family have requested that tee number 11 is named after City legend Billy Fenton, tee number 10 has been chosen by Dick Hewitt’s son, Richard, and Mark Granger has grabbed the number 1 tee for his father, Mick. These are particularly special as these family members have regularly played in previous golf days. Mick Granger, himself played in the early competitions along with team mates, Dave Dunmore, Alan Woods and Gerry Baker.

We are not necessarily trying to match players with a tee/shirt number but more appropriately get a squad of eighteen selected players to be represented around the course.

The cost of each tee sign, with a picture of the player and name of the sponsor (designed by fellow Arthurite, Andrew Leathley), will cost £40 (all payment details from gram.bradbury@virgin.net).

Our aim is to showcase an array of former City stars from all eras to support our fundraising efforts.

You don’t have to play golf to sponsor a tee sign – so please support us if you can. Thank you.
