ALAN Booth is looking forward to his second term as captain of Ashton-on-Mersey Golf Club.

Booth has been a member of the club for 12 years and plays off a 14 handicap, and he was previously captain in 2015.

He said: “The first time I was appointed I was honoured and this time I feel privileged beyond belief to be appointed to this esteemed position.

“I have played many courses over the past 15 years and it is the company I play with that makes them memorable ­– St Andrews and Hillside spring to mind.

“My chosen fourball to play with would be Seve Ballesteros – this certainly springs to mind as I would like to see how he would play some of the shots I find myself doing on a Saturday morning – Ernie Els for his slow, perfect swing and striking of the ball and finally Lee Trevino to bring a bit of humour to the group while we played.

“I expect to be playing four or five times a week in the season and my other hobbies are a lifelong support of Manchester United and playing pool.

"My career highlight is a hole-in-one on the 18th at Rhos on Sea, where I also won the competition in 2018.

“I have decided the charity I will be supporting is to try and raise some funds for the golf club to complete some much-needed improvements as charity begins at home.”
