Accountant and ex-rugby player Ally McLaughlin to advise and mentor new European golf pro Jamie Dunster

Firm advises golf pro and signs up sponsorship deal

A FORMER rugby professional and accountant will be helping manage on-and off-course matters for new European golf pro Jamie Dunster.

Ally McLaughlin, a former professional rugby player with Worcester Warriers, will manage the financial affairs of Worcestershire’s newest European Tour golf professional Dunster – as well as providing sports mentoring advice.

The deal also involves McLaughlin’s firm Bishop Fleming Rabjohns sponsoring Dunster for a three-year period.

“The last thing that Jamie needs, as he launches his professional golfing career, is having to worry about his accounts and dealing with the taxman, so we’ll deal with all that”, said McLaughlin.

“It is probably a unique example of an accountant providing sporting guidance, but I know from my own experience how a young sports professional can benefit from some guidance on handling the pressures. I was lucky, because rugby is a team game, so I had others in the team to help guide me: golf is a solitary game, so Jamie will be on his own.”
