The club held its annual golf tournament on Sunday at the Cleadon Hills course of the South Shields Golf Club.

The event was a great success, with 18 teams competing in the Texas Scramble fourball format.

The club would like to sincerely thank the golf club for all most kind assistance, in particular to Chris Smith (brother of Len) and the staff for food and a fine bar.

We would also like to thank members of the golf club for their participation and support, as football club officials, sponsors and supporters who also attended it had been a great day of golf and good company.

Special thanks also go to Mariners first-team manager Jon King for all of his fine organisational work in promoting the event, and to all who most kindly donated the raffle prizes, and with hearty congratulations to all the winners.

First team prize winners (main image), with 59.7 points and a cash award of £120, were Lee Auty, Gary Atkinson, Terry Green and Mark Busby.

Second (pictured below), with 61.6 points and a cash award of £80, were Steve Galloway, Tony Galloway, Shaun Nicholls and Paul Gilmour.

Businesses and individuals can still get involved in the event, though, by sponsoring a hole for £25.

Their business details will be placed in the programme, while they will get the chance to place an advertisement at their selected tee.
