Another Successful Midlands Golf Day

Another hugely enjoyable SOS Midlands Golf Day was experienced by over 130 keen golfers last Thursday at the Ullesthorpe Court Hotel and Golf Club. The weather was fine  and the course and hotel in great condition as usual. Grateful thanks to SOS East Midlands Regional Director Gary Welsh (and wife Sarah) for the huge effort they put in to making the day so enjoyable and run so smoothly, and also to Andy Thompson of SOS. The much sought after “Referees Trophy” was won by Jon Davis (pictured second from the right) and his victorious Six Nations team and was presented with their award by England International Tim Stimpson and top referee Ashley Rowden. Grateful thanks too  to all our sponsors on the day and throughout the year.   

 It was also a great opportunity for SOS to thank all the wonderful referees present, for what they do for the game and how much they support SOS Kit Aid throughout the year. The customary Q&A was kindly run by Wayne Barnes and Premiership football referees and Premier Rugby referees and was much enjoyed by all. Thanks to everyone for coming and supporting us. PLEASE join us next year when it will be the 10th anniversary of our Midlands Golf Day!

Pease Note our inaugural SOS Northern Golf Day takes place on Friday 5th July at Staining Lodge Golf Course, nr Blackpool. Please contact  Andy Thompson on if you would like to come!
