OBAFC Golf Day, Friday 9 October 2015

On Friday 9 October 2015 60 intrepid golfers took to the fairways & greens of Clitheroe Golf Club to participate in the 3rd annual OBAFC Golf Day in this, the 90th Anniversary year of the Club.....and what a day it was! This was a lovely calm, bright, sunny and warm Autumn day of weather augmented by a golf course presented in superb condition. It was unfortunate that the later starters were blighted by the descent of darkness towards the end of their rounds.

15 teams of four engaged in an 18 hole stableford competition with a 'yellow ball' competition providing an auxiliary event. A complementary, single hole putting competition for individuals   took place after their round on a 'side of the Eiger' area of the club's practice green.

In the evening those participating enjoyed the excellent hospitality of the Clitheroe club with a presentation meal and social discourse at the bar.

OBAFC President, Roger Smith, took the opportunity to briefly address all present in the evening to bring them up to date with the current playing and financial position of the football club. He also spoke about the protracted proposal for the sale of Memorial Ground and outlined the special events held at the club to commemorate it's 90th Anniversary year. Roger extended the immense and sincere thanks of OBAFC to the golf team sponsors for their most generous support and acknowledged the participation of all taking part in what had again proved to be another successful and enjoyable golf day.

'Champions' on the day was the Clitheroe Cricket Club team which took 1st place in the stableford competition with a team score of 95 points. 2nd place team was IDM Designs with 87 points narrowly pipping (after a card 'play off') team Taylor Weaver in 3rd spot also with 87 points. Taylor Weaver additionally bagged the 'yellow ball' event with a 40 points score. Prizes were also awarded for longest drive on the 9th hole and nearest the pin strikes on the 5th and 17th holes.

All-in-all a fabulous day, heartily endorsed by everyone, which raised welcome funds for Old Blacks AFC.

Squad Marks - Horwich RMI Res (Away)

Squad and marks out of 10

Bradley Oliver 7- safe hands and the usual great distribution from hands and floor

Daniel Shut 8 – grew stronger as the game went on- well done 3rd son

Sam Dixon 7 – brings calm to the team and a good voice at the back.

Andrew Charnley 7 - he knows he gave a goal away but more than made up for it with a great header

Mark Feeney 7 - starting to form a good partnership with Charny and Strong as ever

Kieran Laskowski 6 – played him out of position 1st half but was better when he came back on in the2nd half

Will Ainsworth 7 – grew into the game and did well once we went to 4-4-2

Andre Veneziale 7 – probably nearer an 8 but his standards are very high, quality as usual.

Rick Mcguirty 6 – played out wide and up front but just wasn’t his day, plenty more to come from him

Jordan Fielding 6 – Like Rick, just didn’t happen but they can both score goals and be match winners

Elliot Guinan 7 – struggled in the 1st half but never gave up, better 2nd half and he scored a cracker!


Brad Langhorn 7 – been missed, not match fit but he’s a threat and back on the scoresheet

Matt Dewhurst 5 – only got the last 15 mins but definite signs he’s on the way back

Alex Boardman 5 – got last 10 mins but like Brad it’s great to have him back in the squad

Thanks to Paul Upton for winding the ref up even before we started the match by throwing the flag on the floor!!
