Oldham Advertiser - - SPORT - GOLF

THE Scroungers Golf So­ci­ety teamed up with Cromp­ton and Roy­ton Golf Club Lady Cap­tain Julie Bar­ton for a hugely suc­cess­ful char­ity day.

The so­ci­ety pro­vides dis­abled chil­dren with pow­ered wheel­chairs to boost their qual­ity of life.

This year’s event saw more than £2,000 raised to buy an elec­tric pow­ered scooter for 11-year-old Oliver Hick­ling.

The Bury young­ster had been run over on a ze­bra cross­ing by a 10 ton truck and horse box that had three horses on board.

His re­sult­ing in­juries were an am­pu­ta­tion of his left leg, a punc­tured lung and a brain stem in­jury which has left him weak down his left side.

As for the play it­self, the win­ning team was Linda Hall, Jor­dan Flint, John Os­balde­ston and Steve Mills (83 points).

The Pres­i­dent’s Trophy at Cromp­ton and Roy­ton was won by Martin Mor­ris­sey with rounds of 68 and 67 for a 135 to­tal.

A Tues­day medal had Gary Melling (64) top of di­vi­sion one, Jim Keogh (65) led in di­vi­sion two, while Jack Ken­wor­thy (64) won di­vi­sion three.

Old­ham GEMS’ three man Texas scram­ble was won by Kevin Haynes, Mike Dunker­ley and Ken Lunn (37.5).
