Tony Adams takes the bragging rights as Keith Allen goes to Ikea


Legendary footballer Tony Adams took in the picturesque golfing fairways at Minchinhampton New Course as playing partner and revered actor Keith Allen opted for a spot of shopping instead.

In sweltering conditions, the former England and Arsenal captain took part in a three-ball with Stroud friends Piers Riseley-Prichard and Steve Ryder. And it was Adams who proved to be a dab hand as he came out on top with Robin Hood actor Keith Allen choosing Ikea as his preferred destination.

“Keith is a mad keen golfer and was supposed to play in a four-ball, but he opted for the shops instead,” revealed Piers.

Adams was in red-hot form, comfortably beating Riseley-Prichard and Ryder, leaving Riseley-Prichard magnanimous in defeat: “Steve and I were owned by the big man.”
