Just ONE more day to wait now until the League's annual presentation dinner at the Telford Whitehouse Hotel on Saturday 11th January 2020 - AT THE EARLIER START TIME OF 6.30PM!!! 
And there can be no doubt as to the ONE club that will be in the spotlight this year. Division ONE big guns St Georges were back at the top of both the top flight and the Dennis Lewis Thursday Division in 2019. And Sonya Lucas, having made history as the first female winner of the division ONE averages in 2017, will receive the honour again after a super campaign of 24 wins from 26 games. Not finished there, the Dragons also won the County Cup and were runners-up in the Shropshire Cup!

Guest ONE of the Famous Five who have accepted invitations to attend Shropshire's biggest prize-giving function is Spencer Clarke.

Having waited so long to be crowned king of Shropshire by winning the County Merit in 2018, the Sir John Bayley Club legend went and did it again in 2019.

On a damp day at Tilstock, Spencer received the magnificent Charles Beddard Cup from County President Mike Beckett after reigning supreme by repeating his final victory of 12 months earlier against British No. 1 Callum Wraight.

And it was in wet conditions that Spencer delivered a brilliant effort in the Champion of Champions on the Waterloo in Blackpool in September, powering through to the semi-finals with a string of stunning wins before bowing out against the eventual winner.

Let’s hope Spencer enjoys tomorrow as much as he did last year’s presentation – when he was also among the guests!
