Two New Teams Already

Mid Shropshire officials and delegates were delighted to hear of applications from two new teams to join the league for next season at the December Managment Meeting.

Shifnal want to launch a D team in division six on Mondays while Chelmarsh have applied to join the popular eight-a-side Saturday Division.

It was agreed that treasurer Celia Miles will give a report on the prizemoney structure, honoraria levels and general finances of the league at the January Managment Meeting on Tuesday the 8th.

The various rule changes, proposed by both the league and Wrockwardine Wood, were fine tuned and will go before the AGM on Tuesday, January 22 for clubs to vote on.

A superb total of 165 are booked to attend the league’s annual dinner on Saturday, January 12, at the Telford Whitehouse Hotel – up by nearly a third on the normal attendance figure. There will be a total of 10 guests, but organisers are still hoping that with a raffle, Irish Bingo and Whisky roll-up there will be a profit on the night.

Good progress is being made on the introduction of the new computerised results system in 2013 thanks to the efforts of Mike Beckett and Steve Wall. A sub-committee will be formed after the AGM to try and ensure the smoothest possible introduction of the system. This might mean a pre-season EGM if it is felt new rules are need to cover its introduction.

Competitions secretary Phil King has now received a draft of next year’s county calendar of events from John Coxill but will wait until it is confirmed at the next County Executive meeting on January 7 before working on the league's schedule.

Abbey secretary Bill Meredith informed the league that he had resigned from the position over a matter of principle regarding an internal club matter.

AND FINALLY, clubs have received reminders from county secretary Mo Corley on two matters:

1 - They need to notify her immediately of any changes to officers to ensure the county AGM agenda etc, which is being sent out by email, gets to the right person;

2 - Welfare officers of clubs need to keep county chief Barry Jennings informed when any issue occurs or is resolved.
