The Mariott Forest of Arden played host to the 2013 chapter of the annual Birmingham City golf day.

A host of both current and former players, club staff and sponsors took to the popular course on Wednesday.

Amongst the famous faces on the fairways, main event sponsors EZE Group invited ambassador Cyril Regis and global darts star Simon Whitlock.

From the current Blues camp, Steven Caldwell, Paul Robinson, Darren Ambrose, Colin Doyle, Stephen Carr, Steve Watson and Derek Fazackerley all teamed up with sponsors to play a round before being joined by Lee Clark, Terry McDermott and their first-team colleagues for an evening’s entertainment.

Former Blues favourites Geoff Horsfield, Michael Johnson and Malcolm Page also got into the swing of things with Doyle’s Advanced Colour Coating’s team being crowned the eventual winners.

During the evening, an auction helped to raise funds for the EZE Group Foundation with entertainment providing by comedian and mind-reader Graham Jolly.

Blues' Head of Commercial, Ian Dutton, said: "The whole day was fantastic from start to finish.

"May I take this opportunity to thank all 20 teams that took part on the day and the key sponsors for the event.

"Again, yet another very successful event and we all look forward to seeing you at the Player Awards Dinner come 5 May."

Other sponsors of the event included International Foreign Exchange, Vin-X Fine Wine Investments, Quilter, Equitrade Capital and Heineken UK.
