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:

AGM Update

Proposals for Rule Changes

Proposed by the League Officers

Proposed by Newport BC, new league rules:

Reason: At present, there is no rule to stop a player practising on an opponent's green before the match starts. Nor is there any penalty for doing so. The no practice rule is common in other leagues.

Charity Shield new rules:

Reason: If the teams are handicapped, why is one team allowed to practice and not the other? Surely this defeats the point of a handicap.

Proposed by Bridgnorth BC

Proposed by Bylet BC
