Ex-players, staff and supporters beat the weather at inaugural golf event
Huddersfield Town Club Ambassador Andy Booth braved the inclement weather to host his inaugural invitational golf event at Woodsome Hall Golf Course on Thursday!
A number of his former team mates, Club staff and corporate supporters took to the 18 hole golf course to take part in a four ball Stableford competition.
The golfers, which included teams from club partners Direct Voice and Data and Armitage Sykes, also enjoyed a hog roast evening meal ahead of the prize presentation.
Town’s corporate supporters also got the chance to socialise with some of the Club’s former players. Kieran O’Regan, Steve Kindon, Chris Hutchings, Keith Hanvey, Tom Cowan, Darren Bullock, Jon Dyson, Ronnie Jepson, Steve Jenkins, Efe Sodje, Chris Billy, Mick Jones, Andy Holdsworth and Mark Lillis all took to the course.
