Welcome to the Mid-Shropshire Senior Citizens Crown Green Bowling League.
Sponsored by Peter Morris Cars Ltd

The league was established in the Telford area by Mr John Jones in 1976. Today, it consists of some 26 clubs which compete in teams of six in four divisions on Wednesday afternoons.

When launched in 2011, this web site provided a full results service based on the old PC based 'allbut' system managed by Fixture Secretary Frank Booth but this was replaced after three years by Mike Beckett's revolutionary online results system to which we now link.

The results service linked to from this site is provided by:

Urgent Request from Squirrel

Squirrel Bowling Club are urgently looking for a greenkeeper. See message below from their Chairman Bill Smith...

Our present contractor who has only been in post for 5 months, will not be able to do any more work for us, so we will need someone to carry on from the beginning of August. We will then need a green keeper to cut twice a week and apply fertilisers/chemicals as when req'd. Our own equipment, petrol, liquids, etc, will be available for use by an interested person.

We would be much obliged if you could ask the question for us of the league teams, or if anyone has a contact that may be able to help.

Thanking you in anticipation.

Bill Smith, Squirrel Bowling Club Chairman.
Alveley. 01746 780841. 07884148433.
