Over-60s - Men and Women - Get New Chance

posted May 12, 2016, 12:18 AM by Malcolm Fletcher
Two of the biggest names in Mid Shropshire - and Shropshire bowls for that matter - will be honoured on Saturday 14 May with the running of a new competition.

The League are launching an Over-60s Merit at Trench with a 2pm start (enter on day, dress code applies).

It’s open to all men and women bowling in the League who were 60 on or before January 1 this year – and the eventual winner will receive the Ray & Jeff Hutchinson Trophy.

Jeff ended more than four decades of service to the League when he stood down as President at January's AGM and, like his late father Ray, he has represented Mid Shropshire as County President among many other roles.

The new competition is also a reward for Mid Shropshire's senior bowlers who, led by Tony Roche, have won the Shropshire veterans inter-league championship three times in the last four years.
