2017 President 
Hilary Brady

I am extremely honoured and proud to be President of Market Drayton Golf Club for 2017 and look forward to representing the Club, to the best of my ability.

I have been a member of the Club, since 1994 and became Lady Captain in 2008. I have served as Handicap Secretary on the Ladies Section Committee for several years and was elected on to the General Management committee in 2013 where I have served on House & Bar sub-committee until the current time.

I look forward to welcoming members on my President's Day and Away Day and look to a year of excellent golf, friendship and good health.

2017 Club Captain
Rob Wagstaffe

I am honoured and delighted to take on the role of Club Captain for 2017.

I’m a Shropshire man and have lived in Market Drayton since 1978. I’ve been playing golf for over 30 years and joined the Club in 1989, my son was also a junior member.
I joined the Management Committee in 1994 taking the role of Chair of House & Bar, a role I undertook for some 12 years. I returned to the Management Committee again in 2014 and the Chair of House & Bar role once more. I hope the knowledge and experience I can bring to the Club, as part of the Management Committee, takes the Club forward for the benefit of all its members.

Market Drayton Golf Club is friendly and welcomes new members, visitors and guests with open arms, the course is challenging but a fair test of golf for any standard of golfer, one you’ll certainly enjoy.

2017 Lady Captain
Jane Sloan

It is an honour and a pleasure to be Lady Captain for 2017. 

I have lived in Market Drayton from the age of 3 and have enjoyed various sports over the years. My squash partner persuaded me to take up golf in 1997, which I did, and I have been a member of Market Drayton Golf Club since 2000.

I served on the Ladies Committee in 2010 and 2011, and I became Ladies Match and Handicap Secretary in 2015. 

I look forward to representing the Ladies section in 2017. 

2017 Vice Captain
Lloyd Readhead

I have formerly been an International Gymnast and British Champion before moving into coaching. During my Coaching career I was appointed as an honorary UK National Coach in 1980 and became UK Director of Coaching, delivering coaching to the IOC, and was installed into the British Coaching Hall of Fame.

After retiring, I took up golf as a late starter, and joined Market Drayton, along with my wife Dee, in 2008. In 2011 I became Junior Development Organiser and helped to set up our Junior Golf Academy. Since then, I have qualified as a PGA Coach, and continue to help with the Junior Coaching. In 2014, I enjoyed a successful year as Seniors Match Skipper.

I am delighted to take on the role of Vice Captain in 2017.
