Welcome to the official website of the Mid Shropshire Crown Green Bowling League for the 2015 season - our 83nd since being established in 1932. 

This much-praised site was launched in 2011 to provide all the latest information on league news, dates, competitions and, most importantly, results and tables – all in one place.
Mike Beckett's revolutionary results system, which sees clubs input result details direct into their computers, ensures that is the case, and that superb system will have a change to cope with this year as clubs in the Saturday divisions adopt the unique points scoring system of the highly successful Dennis Lewis Thursday Night Division, which was launched in 2014 and is also eight-a-side. Newcomers to it this year are Shrewsbury-based Prince of Wales Hotel, who are warmly welcomed back. 
With their return, our Telford-based league now has 28 member clubs with 1,500 bowlers and provides competition in three main divisions on Friday nights and three more on Monday evenings.
The Jack Jones Junior Division Trophy was re-launched in 2013 and league officers are currently working on a Junior Development Policy to try and attract more youngsters to take up the game. 

Mid Shropshire's nomination Mike Potter (pictured) is now serving as County President for 2015, and he has picked Allscott to stage the County Merit finals on Sunday, June 28.

  • Harris Cup Final Cracker In Prospect This year's final - on Saturday 19 September at Sinclair (6.30pm)  - features two teams that have dominated the competition for the last five years.St Georges enjoyed a hat-trick of Harris Cup triumphs between 2010 and 2012 before Newport took charge.And, should the holders come out on top again, it will be a poignant moment for Newport captain Dale Rudrum after announcing this week that he was standing down from the role. Having set a new record of five straight Premier League championships, Rudrum obviously feels the time is right to stand down, so this could be the last trophy he receives for them as leader. It promises to be a cracker - so don't miss it ...
