Silent Tribute

A minute’s silence in memory of a past chairman will be observed at the League meeting tonight – Tuesday 7th June – at the Sir John Bayley Club.

Bridgnorth stalwart Gerald Penny was chair of the league between 1994 and 1996 and tributes will be paid at the management committee meeting.

Fixture secretary and fellow Bridgnorth resident John Palmer said: “League officers are saddened to hear of the death of Gerald Penny, who bowled in the Mid Shropshire and Highley leagues for many years and wish to send their condolences both to Gerald’s family and to Bridgnorth Bowling Club.”

Officers hope that the meeting will end with the draw for the round robin groups for the Shropshire veterans inter-league championship, to be hosted by Mid Shropshire on Saturday 11th June at Wrockwardine Wood from 10am.
