More than 160 keen golfers chipped in with £15,000 for charity when the 2010 Second City Golf Classic returned to Little Aston Golf Course.

With a total entry of 42 teams raising funds on behalf of the Arthritis Research Campaign and the Norman Laud Association, the annual event – in its 44th year – was hailed as one of the best yet.

This year the charity event welcomed back as sponsors Spire Little Aston Hospital. They celebrated their return in style as the winners of the Rod Davies Memorial Bowl were The Three Spires, one of Spire Little Aston’s teams, supported by their pro Craig Swinburn.

The golf professional prize went to Matt Morris, from Walmley, who shot a gross 65 for the day on a beautifully prepared course.
