Another successful Former Players Golf Day took place on Monday 26 th June. Beautiful sunny day a
course in good condition and a couple of new teams entered, what more can you ask for.
Walsall Golf Club has become the golf home to the Former Players Association, everything seems to
run smoothly thanks to the administration of Jayne Nightingale. One thing did crop up on the day
before which threw a spanner in works, apparently 2 separate members crashed the buggies into
the wall crossing the stream on the 18 th ! Jayne came to our rescue by borrowing 2 from Great Barr
Golf club and we must thank Alan Hingley for coming to our rescue to do the transportation from
Great Barr to Walsall.
We welcomed 2 new teams and we extend our thanks to Chris Kelly CEO of west Midlands Safari
Park for entering a team and to Adam Hope, Bobby’s eldest, for entering his team from Newmans.
19 Teams participated this year with 14 former players, making his debut was Leon Barnett.
