Bradley’s new golf competition to become annual event

BRIDLINGTON Golf Club staged a brand new event, when the inaugural Marshall Shoes Trophy was competed for.

The event was the idea of David Marshall who wanted to donate a trophy to Bridlington Golf Club to express his family’s gratitude for the way their son Bradley had been welcomed by everyone since being diagnosed with a tumour in his lower back.

Bradley’s treatment has been widely publicised in the Free Press with him travelling to the USA for pioneering treatment.

Throughout his treatment, he found that golf was a sport he could play without any ill effects and he has taken to the sport extremely well, with his handicap reducing dramatically this season.

The format of the Marshall Shoes Trophy was a pair’s event combining a junior with an adult. It was apt that David and Bradley would team up to take part in the trophy along with another 25 other pairs who took part and it was an extremely popular and well contested event.

The Marshall family kindly hosted the halfway house during the event, feeding everyone on the way round.

At the prize presentation, the club’s director of golf Anthony Howarth thanked David, Dawn and Adele Marshall for their generosity during the day. Rachel Thornton was also thanked for helping in the halfway house.

Bradley was invited to present all the prizes to the winners.

The competition was so popular it will now become an annual event.
