Crow Nest Golf Club at Hove Edge have a Sportsman’s Evening coming up on Friday, February 24 with a very sporting theme to it.

President Glyn Owen, also a mad-keen FC Halifax Town fan, will be welcoming chief guest Stuart Fielden, the former Great Britain, England, Bradford Bulls, Wigan Warriors, Huddersfield Giants and Illingworth ARLFC back-row forward. Fielden made 25 appearances for Great Britain, 10 for England and turned out in 372 Super League matches. The comedian Zack Stevens from Sheffield is a very keen golfer, playing off 10, and is a member of the Comedians Golfing Society, so he fits the bill nicely.

The MC on the night is Neil `Billy’ Wheadon, the former Halifax RUFC tight-head prop who also played for the Calderdale/Kirklees representative side. He was also a former cricketer with Birkby in the Huddersfield Central League.

Glyn Owen says he is not surprised tickets are going fast as this is without doubt the best line up since he had Merseyside’s former Granada TV comedian Stan Boardman for his Captain’s dinner.

The Shears

Phil Ward, who hosts his first Curry Night tonight at The Shears in Hightown, at 6.30pm, is also engaging Commercial Street cheese and wine emporium Czerwyk’s on Thursday, February 2 as he did at the Junction and Red Rooster.
