Golf in full swing at the Abbey

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

HE was ar­rested for his ‘crime’ but Richard Grey was happy to be in cuffs for char­ity af­ter play­ing golf on Cam­bridge United’s pitch!

Grey took part in char­ity cam­paign Jail & Bail for Ad­den­brooke’s Char­i­ta­ble Trust (ACT), where a full in­ves­ti­ga­tion takes place af­ter be­ing cuffed for a play­ful stunt.

In or­der to be re­leased from the long arm of the law, ‘crim­i­nals’ are re­quired to raise £500 to­wards the char­ity as part of their bail sum.

And af­ter Cam­bridge chair­man Dave Doggett took part 18 months ago, the League Two club were keen to get in­volved again.

Grey said: “The club were re­ally help­ful and so were the po­lice, who did it all in their own time. The char­ity works along­side the force.

“I’m not a golfer and I had the Cam­bridge grounds­man keep­ing a very close eye on what I was do­ing. I never ac­tu­ally struck any golf balls.”

The money raised goes to the chil­dren’s can­cer ward at Ad­den­brooke’s Hos­pi­tal.
