Mid Shropshire made it two out of three Shropshire inter-league crowns this year when the team captained by Tony Roche won the Shropshire Veterans competition on home soil on Saturday, June23.
They defeated Market Drayton by 17 shots in the eight-a-side final on the new green at Wrockwardine Wood to bring the curtain down on 10 hours of action - and add to the league's success in the junior inter-league in Shrewsbury.
Roche & Co won both their group games on Donnington Wood No 2 and then Mid Shropshire Senior Citizens League in their semi-final on the small green at St Georges before getting their hands on the Derek Wright Shield for the first time.
Norman Harvey won 21-9 in the final and Roche 21-11 and the other members of the team, that was the same all day, were: Geoff Clarke, Pat MInton, Bob Barber, Gino Farruggo, John Lovett and Steve Parton. Well done to all!
AND FINALLY, congratulations too go to Newport's Sam Millward & Jack France who won the league's Under-18 Doubles title at Maddocks by beating Sir John Bayley duo Ben Hudson & Jamie Fletcher 21-11 in the final.
