The inaugural Martin Green Golf Tournament in aid of Cancer Research UK took place at Fardew Golf Club in East Morton on Saturday 13 June and was a resounding success.

The tournament was held in memory of Martin Green who died tragically of cancer last year at the age of 54. Martin, originally from Howarth, was Faculty Leader of Physical Education and Sport at St. Mary’s. The tournament was organised by Martin’s friend of 28 years, Mr Geldart.
Thirty six golfers enjoyed the day at Fardew, where Martin was a regular player, and over £800 was raised for Cancer Research UK.
Martin’s parents, Jean and Maurice Green donated a fabulous silver trophy for the competition. The inaugural winner of the ‘Stableford based’ competition was Sarah Davies from Ilkley who was clearly delighted with her success and the occasion.
“The day was wonderfully organised and supported. It was a great tribute to Martin and I am really honoured to be the first ever recipient of the Martin Green Memorial Trophy. Cancer Research UK is a charity that is very close to my heart. It really was a fantastic day that was thoroughly enjoyed by all.”
A wide range of prizes were also donated by the Green family and were eagerly contested:
Martin’s mother and father, Jean and Maurice, attended the event with Maurice presenting the prizes. Martin’s brother, Tim Green, also played in the competition.
