The Alan Igglesden Charity Golf Day

Former England and Kent fast bowler Alan Igglesden is hosting his ninth charity golf day at Westerham Golf Club on Friday 4th October 2013.

We here at The Eagles Beak have pleasure in promoting this charoty event following previous very successful years. We are hoping you will lend your support to help Alan raise funds for this worth while cause into brain tumour research.

Alan was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 1999 and ever since has been striving to raise much needed funds to support this most worthwhile charity. Alan’s fund raising efforts have totalled £140,000 but he does not wish to stop there. Alan has been a patron of Brain Tumour UK for many years and holds an annual golf day and arranges celebrity cricket matches with all proceeds going to the charity. The golf day last year raised a magnificent sum of £9,400. 


If you enjoy playing golf and would love the opportunity to meet and play with some very familiar faces from the sporting world, contact the organisers using the details at the bottom of this page. All proceeds from the charity golf day are going to a very worth while cause. If you are unable to attend the event but would still like to contribute they would still love to hear from you.

Kevin Igglesden explains ...
"Growing up in the sleeping little town of Westerham, we were unaware at the time that we were going to watch two sportsman from the same town, appear for their country.

It was Alan that was making his way in cricket with Kent but at the same time dreaming of playing at Palace at Wembley. A few years later John Salako and I were playing football together and attended Kent schools cricket trials together. It was John that was spotted and he moved on to Anerley juniors and then on to Palace while dreaming of scoring a hundred at the home of cricket, Lords.

With Dad, Alan and myself all life long Palace supporters, John playing for our beloved team was absolutely perfect! Alan and John both suffered injury problems that reduced their chances of more England caps but this was a golden era for little town of Westerham in Kent.

Alan was at Selhurst Park when we beat Burnley in front of our record crowd and the FA Cup semi-final win at Villa Park against Liverpool and holds those as truly special memories. Since he retired Alan has strived to raise funds to help find a cure for such a horrible disease. Alan, a brain tumour sufferer himself, holds a annual golf day which is always supported by our good friend and one of our sporting heroes, John Salako." 
We urge you to lend your support in any way that you can for this event in aid of such a worthy cause.
