Leeds United legend Eddie Gray was joined by the Lady Mayoress Edna Murray and the Lord Mayor of Leeds Coun Thomas Murray in the Lord Mayor’s Charity Golf Day.

In a memorable day at Wike Ridge Championship Golf Course, 22 teams battled it out to top the leaderboard in the first Lord Mayor’s Charity Golf Day.

After 18 holes of great action and an appearance by Leeds United legends Eddie Gray and Peter Lorimer who featured in one of the line-ups, Coun Murray was on hand to congratulate the winners and present them with a trophy.

Held in support of the Lord Mayor’s LOFFTY project, all proceeds from the event will be donated to the Silverdale Holiday Centre.

Coun Murray said: “I would personally like to thank everyone who worked so hard to make our charity golf day such a fantastic success.

“Despite the rain, the enthusiasm of each line-up on the day was simply brilliant, and I am delighted to say that the quality of golf was on occasions nearly as good!

“The main beneficiary from this LOFFTY event will be the Silverdale charity, who do such a tremendous job working with and supporting young people.”
