Party Plan!

The countdown to the League marking its 90th anniversary with a special event as part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebrations has begun.

The Mid Shropshire League, formed in 1932, is organising a day of its own celebrations on Saturday (JUNE 4) from 10.30am at St Georges Bowling Club.

“St Georges were one of the founding member clubs of the league so it is fitting that the 90th anniversary party is being staged there,” said League secretary Malcolm Fletcher.

“The day starts with a singles competition on the original bottom green with representatives from the last 32 clubs to have played in the league taking part and the winner to receive a trophy that is nearly as old as the league!

“Then at 1pm there will be a fun challenge match on the top green for anyone with a Mid Shropshire connection to be involved in.

“Everyone who wants to play will get a game against a bowler of a similar ability, with the two teams to be captained by Paul Beer and Alison Cotton of the host club, who the league thanks for acting as hosts.

“We just hope that we get a big turnout for what we plan to be a special day to give the League a memorable 90th birthday.”
