After getting several requests for the registration of new players after the July deadline (Rule 5), myself and league chairman Dennis Lewis have decided that from now (July 26) there will be NO registering of any players for this season - UNLESS that player is completely new and their registration number has been applied for.
We have had to come to this decision because there is no league meeting in August, and as such no players being registered for other leagues can be verified until the September meeting. By going down this route it will stop clubs saying we are favouring one club over another.
So I repeat, the only exception will be brand new bowlers, who have never bowled before, so that they can get some experience. And all the league’s officers will be informed of this before they can bowl. Thank you.

AND FINALLY, belated congratulations to Ashley Gregory, who started the season playing for Hadley USC A in division one, on winning the Shropshire Junior Merit at Old Shrewsbury.
