Back In The Swing Of It

10th February 2012 by Onside Youth Zones

Dear OnSiders,

I am delighted, over the moon, happy as Larry, even as happy as Harry Redknapp, though not because I have escaped the grasps of the HMRC, but because like a football manager I have made an audacious double signing for OnSide. For an undisclosed fee, I can’t tell you how much, but it’s somewhere between 1 & -1, I have played a blinder and recruited a Dream Team of Warren Hegg (Lancashire & England) and Marc Studholme (Bolton!) to head up our forthcoming Charity Golf Day which will be held at Mere Golf & Country Club on 15th May.

The event will be known as The ‘Warren Hegg Golf Classic’. Warren had a glittering career playing cricket for Lancashire and had the honour of representing England on two occasions. Warren now works for Lancashire CC as a Development Officer and when asked if he would lead our Charity Golf Day he said “I am thrilled to be involved with such a worthwhile charity like OnSide, which is making a difference in the lives of our future generations. I’m looking forward to a competitive, but fun game of Golf in May and hope you can join us”.

I did warn Warren that the last time I asked someone to head up a Golf Day (Francis Lee) it turned into a bit of a life sentence, Franny is still going strong 23 years later and to date has raised over £300,000 for Bolton Lads & Girls Club through his golf day.

So we have a Leader and now we needed someone to pull everything together, a Fergie, a Barberoli, a tournament organiser. I knew just the man, step forward Marc Studholme. Marc is already a friend and supporter both of OnSide and the Factory Youth Zone.

Marc is passionate about our mission to support and invest in young people by simply giving them a safe and decent place to go in their leisure time. He is just the man to put in the “hard yards” and make the inaugural Warren Hegg Golf Classic a success.

So on behalf of everyone at OnSide a huge thank you to Warren & Marc and here’s to a great day. Keep an eye on our Events page as we will be posting details of how to enter a team.
