A great way to raise £20,000

Alan Shearer said his golf challenge to play 18 holes on 18 different golf courses in a single day was "a great way to raise £20,000" for charity.

Last week's impressive contest saw the former striker beat his challenger Feisal Nahaboo, Chief Executive Officer of NGM (Next Generation Money) and raise the fantastic sum for the Alan Shearer Foundation when two different sponsors joined the pair at each hole.

The match began at dawn at Alan's home course at Close House in Northumberland and ended as the light was fading at Crowthorne golf course in East Berkshire, where Feisal is a member.

The epic event was a warm up for Alan, who is hosting his own annual golf trophy tournament at Close House next week in aid of the Foundation.
