Two Days To Go - Annual Dinner Countdown

There’s just TWO more days to go to 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 Division TWO is where Jonathan Davies has really made a name for himself over the last TWO seasons. He won the divisional averages prize in 2018 with 21 wins from 23 games for Shifnal A and remarkably repeated the feat last year. Bowling for the same team, he went even better with 23 wins from 24 matches – and will be a proud recipient of the trophy on Saturday night. 

Guest TWO of the Famous Five who have accepted invitations to attend Shropshire's biggest prize-giving function is Mike Beckett (pictured right with Spencer Clarke - who is Guest One!). 
It should have been a great year for Mike as County President representing the Barlows Whitchurch Over-60s League. But it will always be tinged with sadness following the shock loss of his beloved wife Mary early in the playing season. 

But Mike recovered his poise in admirable fashion and will the main speaker at the dinner as he attends with his daughter Joanne, determined to keep up the good work that Mary urged him to do. 
That body of work centres around the launch of the computerised Mike Beckett Results System, which has revolutionised the way bowlers can almost instantly get the information they are so eager for.

Leagues - including the MSBL - and organisations all over Britain owe Mike a huge debt of gratitude for the service he provides, so he is sure to get a very warm reception on Saturday.
