Captain’s February Blog

Captain’s Blog (G Murphy)

Although this is a quiet time in terms of competitions and league matches, a lot of work is being done around the course by David Stokoe and his staff. At the time of writing, and despite some inclement weather, very few golfing days have been lost and we look forward to the longer days and better weather.

I’d like to thank the team kit sponsors, Advanced Financial Planning (Philip Bousfield) and AVM Business Associates (Malcolm Williams). It is very much appreciated. I’d also like to thank Insight Safety Limited (David Scott) for sponsoring the Race Night which is being held on Friday March 23rd at the Golf Club. There is no cover charge so please come along and support my charity, Prostate Cancer UK, while also having some fun. There’s also some Men United lapel badges on the bar for £1 to support this great charity.

I’d like to thank Bill Leathley for a great Captain’s Farewell Night which was great fun, especially the Elvis act, who was great entertainment. Hopefully he made quite a lot of money for his Captain’s charity.

There are 2 Captain’s charity competitions in April, the 14th and 21st, to get the new season underway and soon after, on May 1st, the new league season for the Gents team. We look forward to continuing the great form shown last season following promotion to league 1.
