Strachan to compete at La Manga
1:28pm Tuesday 26th February 2013 in Sport
Scotland manager Gordon Strachan will take a break from national team duties to compete in the 17th edition of the Addison Lee Footballers’ Golf Classic at Spain’s renowned La Manga Club resort this summer.
The former Saints boss, who was named as Craig Levein’s successor last month, and former Scotland teammate and Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish will head a star-studded line-up that has been assembled for the event at the award-winning venue from June 1-6.
Joining the duo on the fairways in Spain will be a wealth of footballing talent including ex-Saints Dave Beasant and David Speedie, plus new AFC Portchester head coach Graham Rix.
The event features four days of competitive golf: the one-day Alan Ball Trophy named in honour of the ex-Saints midfielder and manager, and the three-day main event, sponsored by London’s leading minicab company Addison Lee, with competitors playing alongside a different footballer each day.
Places in the event cost £1,399 per person and include five nights in the five-star Hotel La Manga Club Principe Felipe, breakfast, welcome and gala dinners and prize-giving with entertainment.
