Reading, UK, June 22nd, 2007: NetOp Tech Ltd - a wholly owned subsidiary of Danish IT company Danware A/S - will be supporting Croft Technology Plc’s 15th annual Golf Day by acting as the main sponsor for the event, with all proceeds donated to the NSPCC.

The event, held on June 28th, marks the highlight of Croft Technology’s corporate calendar. Customers including Jewson, Audi North East and Sheffield International Venues will be attending. Mike Kibblewhite, Managing Director of NetOp and Chris Stockley, Channel Manager, will be joining the mixture of customers and professionals to make 36 players in all.

Croft and NetOp are hoping to top the £5000 raised during last year’s event. A large percentage of this will be raised by an auction at the end of the day, where players will bid for items such as corporate entertainment at Newcastle United, Turnberry golf course and Gleneagles.

“The NSPCC is a charity that is close to our hearts at NetOp, so after seeing the success of Croft’s Golf Day last year – we wanted to get involved this time around. As an organisation, we believe in working ethically, and sponsoring this event is another way that we can give something back” said Mike Kibblewhite, Managing Director of NetOp.

The event will be held at Arcot Hall (, a 200 year old, grade II listed clubhouse, located just north of Newcastle. The golf course itself was designed by world famous golfer, James Braid, who is remembered as one of golf's original and greatest champions, as well as a renowned course designer.

“We are delighted to have NetOp Tech as our main sponsor this year. I have no doubt the day will be a great success, and further strengthen our partnership with them.” Phil Renton, MD Croft Technology Plc
