Players support annual Golf Day

By Ian Appleyard | 9th October 2017

A SELECTION of City players took part in the club's annual 'Golf Day' this afternoon at Forest Park Golf Club in Stockton on the Forest.

Captain Sean Newton, defender Daniel Parslow, striker Jon Parkin, defender Sam Muggleton, and goalkeeper Jon Worsnop were all involved in the event which was held after training and raised nearly £6,000 for the club.

New manager Martin Gray also made a brief appearance but opted not to play.

Organised by the club's Vice Presidents, the annual Golf Day is now in its fifth year and attracted 21 teams, each consisting of four players.

Speaking at the event, Parslow said: "It's the official club day and a few of us are playing. I am a bit rusty but it should be good fun."

Reflecting on Saturday's victory over Brackley Town, Parslow said: "It's always positive to get off to a good start under a new management team. It's something to build on and, hopefully, we can continue that down at Leamington (this weekend).

"We were organised and disciplined. They had a spell where they put us under pressure and we conceded the goal but we responded really well and Parky scored an absolute screamer. Overall, we deserved it."

Parslow has been impressed with the club's new management team and said: "The new Gaffer and (sporting director) Dave Penney are very thorough and they know what they want. They are quite straight-talking so, as a player, you get the message and everyone knows their jobs.

"It's in first thing, work hard, and work well. They will set us up nicely for the game. He's come in and set the tone. Everyone's on board and buying into his ideas."
