Salisbury FC Golf Day
The first ever Golf Day for the re-formed Salisbury Football Club was a great success, and took place recently at the High Post Golf Club. The event was organized by Alan Green, a prolific goalscorer for Salisbury in his heyday and now the Club’s Commercial Manager.
Taking part, alongside guests from many different businesses, were Barry Cranmer, another past fans’ favourite, and the competition was fierce, especially between the old and new guard as the younger breed Brandon Mundy, Lewis Benson and Charlie Searle rose to the stiff challenge.
Local businesses kindly sponsored a hole each and thanks are due to the Steve Claridge Football Foundation, Value Cars, SGS, LED Synergy, Fletcher & Partners, Sonic Scaffolding, Cara Glass, Mikina Engineering and Downton Brewery.
A contribution from proceeds is being sent to the Pembroke Unit at Salisbury Hospital.
10 handicap golfer Matt Knellar scooped the main individual prize, and was part of the winning team (pictured). The prizes for “Nearest the pin” went to Alan Pollard, and Steve Searle, keeper Charlie’s father, won the longest drive accolade.

From what I saw, it appeared that organizer Green found it more difficult to aim the little white ball than the larger leather one with which he made his name - Tiger Woods won’t be biting his nails!
