Donnington Wood will be officially crowned as Mid Shropshire champions for the second year running at the League's annual presentation dinner on Saturday 14 January.

But the club that will take pride of place at the function at the Telford Whitehouse Hotel (7pm for 7.30 meal) will be Wellington's own Sir John Bayley after winning a terrific thee divisional titles in 2016.

St Georges retained the Dennis Lewis Thursday Division crown, Newport kept a firm grip on the Harris Cup and Albrighton enjoyed another divisional triumph and Ashton knockout success.

Sinclair enjoyed a first ever Saturday Division championship and their other claim to fame is that they are the club with the biggest number booked to attend the presentation - a total of 20.

League secretary Malcolm Fletcher said: "This is our fifth annual dinner at the Whitehouse Hotel and we have 175 booked to attend.

"This is down on recent years, but it is still the biggest bowls presentation function in Shropshire - and we are delighted to have special guests and numerous county honours winners coming on the night to join us to celebrate another great year."

Don't be late!
