Club's First Shot At History

Shropshire bowls history beckons for St Georges.

Bowlers from the Mid Shropshire club have the chance to become the first to win both the County Cup and Shropshire Cup in the same season, having reached both finals.

They will aim to complete part one of the double on Saturday (3rd August) when they take on Telepost in the final of the Shropshire Cup at Whixall (6.30pm start).

But Telepost, beaten finalists in 2017, will fancy their chances of going one better as they have sights set on a double of their own to go with cup success – the Tanners Shropshire League championship and promotion via the play-offs to the Premier League.

The Shrewsbury versus Mid Shropshire final is sure to be a noisy affair at the north Shropshire village club . . . and St Georges also have the County Cup final against Meole Brace to look forward to on August 10.

Shropshire Cup final pairings – St Georges v Telepost:

Jonathan Davies v Sam Onions, Jim Kellett v Lee Barker, Sonya Lucas v Richard Addison, Darren Lord v Hayden Lewis.

Ryan Mills v Gary Neal, Graham Turner v Dan Williams, Alison Cotton v Mick Pritchard, Phil Jones v James Mammone.

Paul Beer v Shaun Bould, Barry Gilder v John Addison, Steve Pessall v Danny Wornell, Jim Gaut v Sam Cartwright.
