World Cup winner Ossie Ardiles and former England cricketer Mark Butcher were amongst another healthy turnout for Loxwood Football Club’s third annual golf day.

Around 130 golfers attended the day at Wildwood - including former Leeds and Arsenal player Chris Whyte and ex Fulham and Spurs pro John Lacy - to raise money for the club and their sponsor’s AJW Aviation’s chosen charity Chestnut Tree House.

Loxwood chairman Barry Hunter said: “We had a wonderful day where we greeted a record number of players for the third year in a row.

“It was a very competitive day and lots of people were very generous so we made a great amount towards the club budget for this year. It was perfect, really.

“Loxwood FC will be presenting a cheque to AJ Walter for £1,000 to donate to their chosen charity.

“As a club now we are really looking forward to the new season on the back of an unbelievable first season in Division 1 in both the league and cup competitions.”
