months of preparations have gone into delivering what will be the League's eighth annual presentation dinner at the Telford Whitehouse Hotel on Saturday 11th January 2020 - AT THE EARL.IER START TIME OF 6.30PM!!!

FIVE of the invited guests have accepted their invitations to be part of a 180-plus attendance, which is down on recent years but still by some way the biggest bowls prize-giving function in the county.

And the first of the FAMOUS FIVE guests to be featured is Pauline Wilson (pictured left with Gwen Wilkes).

As County Development Officer, Pauline has injected fresh impetus to the Shropshire coaching scene as well playing a lead role in developing coaching at BCGBA level.

She has made every penny of the £7,100 grant from Sport England count to spearhead the League's effort to encourage clubs to attract new and younger people into the sport.

Pauline recovered from a pre-season hip operation to spearhead Bridgnorth's successful bid to regain their to flight status at the first attempt, topping the club's averages as they finished second in division two to achieve promotion.

For the record, two people who were invited to attend as guests - Chris Summers of sponsors Molson Coors and Midland Masters winner Jamie King - were unable to accept their invitations.
