ITC Golf Day Event A Success

13 May 2016

Demetriou Involved In Charity Golf Day

"I really enjoyed it, the weather was really nice and me and Skitty had a good round.

"It's really important to support these events. To enjoy a game of golf while supporting the community, you couldn't ask for any more.

"The longest drive was probably my closest but the pressure probably got to me on the par three challenges."
Town defender Demetriou said:

"This has been an outstanding event for the local businesses and Town fans to get involved with, raising much-needed funds for the charity.

"It is fundraisers like this where we are able to raise awareness for Shrewsbury Town in the Community.

"we'd like to thank all the people who donated prizes for the day and also Shrewsbury Golf Club for such  a well organised day on a superb golf course.

"We will again look to make the event bigger and better again next year.

"We've grown from last year's golf day and it really has been a phenominal day enjoyed by all."
Shrewsbury Town in the Community's head of community, Jamie Edwards, said:

Shrewsbury Town in the Community held a similar event at Hawkstone Park Golf Club last year.

Martin Piccford and Mark Freeman won the pair challenge 1 (par 3) on the 2nd hole and were rewarded with Bangor on Dee Racecourse vouchers.

Phil Edwards won the over-50s longest drive challenge on the 4th hole and won a Monmore Green Dogs voucher.

Will Perkins won the nearest to pin challenge on the 8th hole and won a TV, being 84cm from the pin.

There were no winners on the hole-in-one challenge on the sixth hole, sponsored by Greenhous, which would have seen anyone who achieved the feat win a brand new Vauxhall Corsa.

There were numerous challenges for the golfers on the day and a raffle and food afterwards.

Teams of two played 18-hole matchplay style golf with Town defender Mickey Demetriou and physio Chris Skitt involved on one team.

Shrewsbury Town in the Community held a successful golf day at Shrewsbury Golf Club on Friday to raise money for the charity.
