Thursday, 29th September was another special day in our 2022 schedule, when we paid tribute to our Former Captain, Ray Clemence MBE. This was our second celebration of his legacy, held again at the outstanding St Georges Hill.
We presented two Sunshine Coaches after the golf – the first to the Kisharon Special Needs School based in Hendon, which was kindly sponsored by Marc Waterman and Friends, and the second, in Ray’s red Liverpool colours, was once again sponsored by David Welsh of JOIE UK, and also Neil Bookatz and his Winter Ball Committee. David Welsh handed the keys over to Ray’s wife, Vee Clemence, who said some lovely words about Ray and the Noah’s Ark Hospice who were receiving the Coach.
After the presentations, Bob ‘the Cat’ Bevan and Ian Irving entertained us, along with a Q&A with two of Ray’s close friends, Ossie Ardiles and Glenn Hoddle. Vee and Sarah Clemence handed the trophy over to the winners, Ricky Villa, Neil Bookatz, Andy Wilding & John Conteh. The event was kindly sponsored by Alan Robinson & Geoff Irvine.
