Northumbria Leave Rivals Green With Envy

Northumbria University Sport teed up yet another title after lifting the 2017 Sport Newcastle Charity Golf Day trophy.

A four-strong squad - featuring Team Northumbria and England volleyball coach David Goodchild - claimed the top prize at Matfen Hall.

And the event raised £5,500 for Sport Newcastle - the Tyneside-based charity that provides financial support to emerging young athletes, coaches and clubs across the North East.

"I'd just like to thanks everyone from Northumbria University for supporting the golf day," said Sport Newcastle's Mike Booth.

"The Northumbria team obviously enjoyed themselves!

"Along with the generous sponsorship of Tier One Capital, the teams who joined us at Matfen Hall helped to raise a significant amount of money for the charity.

"It's a great boost to our funds and will help us support the wide range of projects that we are involved with this year."
