Welcome to the official site of the Mid-Shropshire Senior Citizens Crown Green Bowling League.

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:
