FORMER York City captain Daniel Parslow's Benefit Year Golf Day will go ahead as planned on July 23.

The event looked as if it may have been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, but the government's relaxations on lockdown restrictions mean that it will take place, with safety measures in place.

York City Past Players explained how the details of the event on social media.

They said: "Summer has now arrived and the Government has relaxed its ruling on some outside sports.

"I am pleased that golf is now being played universally u and down the county but adhering to strict, safe distance rules.

"We are working closely with Pike Hills Golf club and listening to advice issued by England Golf.

"I am delighted that we are able to announce that the Daniel Parslow Benefit Charity Golf Day can go ahead on Thursday, July 23 2020 as originally planned.

"We will however have to alter the format to accommodate (the) Government ruling.

"At this time, we are unsure whether food and drink will be permissible on the day.

"Team will still play as a fourball (with social distancing) - there will be no raking in the bunkers, flags must remain in the hole at all times - all seats have been removed around the course.

"This will also mean we will not have a longest drive or nearest the line - but we are hoping to arrange a nearest the pin.

"It is highly unlikely we will be able to hold a raffle either. More details will follow regarding the competition format later.

"I would like you to confirm if you would still like to enter a team this year and if you could supply a team name and a preferred tee time - between 10am and 2pm.

"We will be reducing the entrance fees to £25 each or £100 for a team of four. Those who have paid already will receive a full refund if you are unable to play or will be given the balance of the new entry fee.

"There can be no handling of money on the day so it would be appreciated for payment in advance."
