Ex-England footballer among celebrities for golf tournament

Former Manchester United and England footballer Steve Coppell will lead a host of celebrities in defence of their Hackers Cup title in Bermuda next month.

The director of football at Portsmouth Football Club, will be joined by well-known actor Dennis Waterman, television presenter Nick Knowles, and entertainers David Redfearn and Michael Winsor.

Mr Winsor is the man behind Basil Brush, the puppet, while Mr Redfearn is a world-famous magician.

The celebrities have won the past two tournaments, beating the journalists in 2011 and 2013. This year the journalists will be captained by Philippa Kennedy, with Hugh Whittow, the editor of the Daily Express, and Sudh Nagalakshmi Haggar, the BBC news journalist, among their ranks.

Next month's event will follow the same pattern as previous years, with the Hackers Cup being played over two days, April 2-3, at Tucker's Point and Port Royal golf courses.

Prior to that, the celebrities and journalists will play in an AMAM event at Turtle Hill Golf Club on Tuesday, April 1, when professional golfers Ronan Rafferty, and Barry Lane will also be in attendance.

Places for the AMAM tournament are still available, and if you would like to be involved then contact Liz Ward at Executive Choice Bermuda, via e-mail on emwecbda@gmail.com, or call 704-0631.
