Celebrity Highlights 2014
It was success at last for the Cricketers in 2014 with a huge win by 42 points. Darren Gough led his troops with his usual verve and determined way and the result looked well set for the Cricketers after a 22 point lead was achieved after the first day’s rounds. That lead was extended after day 2 by another 12 points by the Cricketers and the Footballers were unable to make any headway into the Cricketers lead on day 3. The overall result read cricketers 740 points against the Footballers 698 points. The series score is now stands at 5-3 to the Footballers.
This year’s celebrity winner was Cricketer Steve Harmison with some magnificent golf and a total points score of 84. Last year’s Celebrity winner was John Beresford but even his score of 80 points could not Big Steve Harmison stealing his crown.
I’d like to thank our sponsors from last year CWMFX for their support and to the Dona Filipa Hotel with San Lorenzo and The Vale do lobo Golf Club for hosting the event.
