The League will host the Shropshire veterans inter-league championship tomorrow – Saturday 11th June – at Wrockwardine Wood from 10am.
Five teams will contest the Derek Wright Shield, using both greens, with the Mid Shropshire squad captained by Peter Spragg.
The format will be one round robin group with each team playing four games (two on each green) with the usual start on each card and the eventual table toppers declared the 2022 champions.
Alongside Mid Shropshire there will be Shropshire Ladies, last winners in 2019 Tanner Shropshire, Market Drayton and just one team from Whitchurch (after a late withdrawal of their B team) taking part.
