Mid Shropshire WILL NOT be trying to win the Shropshire veterans inter-league championship this coming weekend in Whitchurch.
Following a meeting of the county executive on Monday night, SCGBA secretary Mo Corley said: "The Veterans Inter League has been postponed until Sunday 2nd September because of the forecast for Saturday (July 7th).

"The SCGBA felt it was dangerous to ask players over 60 to play in this heat all day for at least three maybe five games.

"The 8 teams who entered will be the 8 that play on the new date. The two group winners will contest the final with no semi-final at all. The draw and venues below should remain the same."

The Mid Shropshire bowlers who had made themselves available to play - listed below - will be contacted again to check they are still okay in August.

From St Georges – Graham Turner; From Newport – Bill Titley, Dave Westwood, Mick Jones; From Wrockwardine Wood – John Clarke, Ian Delves; From Sir John Bayley – Tony Roche; From Sinclair – Peter Spragg, Elsie Pugh; From Trench - Peter Roden (captain)
