Corny O'Donnell Memorial Texas Scramble 

Sunderland Legend' Jim Montgomery is saddened of the recent passing of Corny O’Donnell, a Founder Member of the Former Players Association.


Jim explained that Corny was the Club’s Commercial Manager at the time of their FA Cup win over Leeds and worked extremely hard towards the interests of the players.  Later, Corny, although not a footballer himself, helped establish the Former Players Association and spent a number of years serving on the Committee.


Until he became ill he actively supported the Former Players charitable fund raising activities, and especially enjoyed their Golf Days!  To commemorate his involvement, his daughter Christine and Monty have decided to establish an annual golf competition at The Heworth Golf Club where he had for many years been a member.

Jim has confirmed that all the arrangements for this event have now been finalised. He and Christine have decided the format of the event should be a Texas Scramble with both team and individual entries available. They would also like monies raised to be shared equally amongst suitable charities and/or good causes nominated by Corny’s family and The Heworth Golf Club who are making their facilities available for the competition.’
