Three Days To Go - Annual Dinner Countdown

is the focus of attention today with just THREE days to go the League's annual presentation dinner at the Telford Whitehouse Hotel on Saturday 11th January 2020 - AT THE EARLIER START TIME OF 6.30PM!!! 

Division THREE in 2019 was the platform for an incredible feat by Keith Banks. The Much Wenlock bowler topped the divisional averages by winning his game in all 24 fixtures the club played as they finished third in the table. Sadly, he won’t be attending the prize-giving, but his achievement can’t go un-noticed. 

Guest THREE of the Famous Five who have accepted invitations to attend Shropshire's biggest prize-giving function is Sean Round (pictured left with Under-18 Merit winner Ed Proudlove). 

He had the mighty difficult job of succeeding the late and great Dennis Lewis as League chairman in 2014, but has shown calm authority ever since to play a lead role in promoting Mid Shropshire bowls. 

So much so that his announcement that he will be standing down from the chairman’s role at the 2020 AGM was met with dismay – and League officers are still hoping he has a late change of heart. 
Sean is also the beating heart of Bowring BC as chairman and one of the groundsmen and, having guided the club through the difficult period of losing its Premier League team, he gained another feather to his cap by running a very successful Bowring Open in Octdober.
