Wales boss, Chris Coleman was the guest of honour at the Maiden City Soccer’s Celebrity Golf Day launch at Da Vinci’s Hotel on Friday last.
The popular annual event, now in its eighth year, will take place this Friday at the Foyle Golf Centre and Coleman was delighted to offer his support.
“The Celebrity Golf Day has been great for the city over the past seven years and is an event I look forward to each year,” said Coleman.
“More importantly it’s a fundraising event for the Academy programme at Maiden City.
“And to attract the calibre of celebrity and teams each year to return to this tournament to play is a great achievement for all the organisers.”
AFC Bournemouth player and M.C.A. graduate, Eunan O’Kane also offered his support for the launch event.
“I’m delighted to play in this year’s golf day and support the programme which supported me as a child, on and off the pitch,” he said.
Also in attendance were Mayor of Derry, Colr. Kevin Campbell and sponsors, Mr. Jim Mellon and Mr Barry Mellon.
