Phil Thompson’s 2017 Golf Classic!
LFC Legends Steven Gerrard and Phil Thompson come together at the 2017 Golf Classic!
This year’s Phil Thompson Golf Classic took place on 18 May at Houghwood Golf Club. Beautiful weather made it an excellent day’s golf for the 90 guests who played in 23 teams and included two other former Liverpool players, Terry McDermot and David Johnson.
We were joined by a Deaf team this year, which included Simeon Hart from S4H, who are BSL training company and also regular golfers and four of the team from the Horticultural Training Centre who helped with the nearest the pin competition.
The evening dinner was followed by entertainment from comedian Willie Miller and a surprise guest, Liverpool Legend Steven Gerrard. Willy hosted a Q&A with Steven who spoke candidly about his career, his support for local charities and working with the Academy players at LFC and gave some time for the teams to have pictures taken with him.
The evening auction and raffle raised in excess of £8,000 which was matched by Barclays, to over £16,000, This will support two of our children’s and young people’s services; Clumber Care Home and Marydale Secure Centre.
