FORMER SAFC midfielders hit the fairways in glorious sunshine to help out a city hospice.

Ex-Sunderland players Micky Horswill and Gordon Armstrong were among those who teed off as part of Grace House Children’s Hospice’s annual golf day at Ramside Hall Hotel, in Carrville, near Durham City.

Cash raised from the day’s sporting fun will go towards the running of the Southwick hospice.

Workers from energy consultancy firm Utilitywise also turned out to take part.

Micky was part of the famous Black Cats side which won the FA Cup in 1973, while homegrown star Gordon was instrumental in the club’s cup run to the 1992 final of the same competition, in which the Wearsiders lost 2-0 to Liverpool.

Claire Waterson, group director of people and HR at Utilitywise, said: “The golf day was a great success and we all had a great day raising money for Grace House.

“It’s a really good cause and Utilitywise is proud to support Grace House in whatever way we can.”
