Bayston Hill 8 (180) Crescent 6 (161) A battling performance between these two teams with the Hillbillies having a key card of 21-2 from John Davies. Crescent’s best was the ever consistent Mark Harris 21-8.

Unison A 7 (188) Prince Hotel 5 (165) A good contest by the Shirehall with games shared and Unison taking the match points by 23 chalks, Les Jones a 21-8 winner for them. Conrad Clapham returning to an old hunting ground won 21-11 for the Prince but ultimately this result did neither side any favours as unison are relegated and the Prince look to settle for runners up.

 

St Julians 5 (166) Telepost A 7 (186) It’s been a tough season for bottom of the table St Julians and they closed their home programme with this defeat against Telepost as Mick Pritchard returned a fine 21-8 for the visitors. Mark Lanning was an early winner for the Saints with 21-12.

  

Division Two

 

Prince Social 4 (148) Castlefields B 8 (178) Castlefields B stay on course for a promotion place with this vital away win at the Prince with Mark Rogers 21-8 and Peter Thomas 21-9. For the now safe hosts Bob Pugh trundled in 21-10.

 

Castlefields C 4 (156) Oxon Village 8 (171) Whilst the B’s are looking up the Castlefields C side looks like going the opposite way as they lost at home to Oxon Village. 21-7 from Mark Walker and 21-8 from Ade Clarke were cancelled out by the visitors Brian Selley 21-4, Mal Isaac 21-7 and Roger Lem 21-6.

 

Reman Services 10 (201) Corbet Arms 2 (133)Reman Services needed this big win to stay in third place as both that spot and the third relegation place will be decided after the final game.

There was a share of the home sweep with Phil Davies and Graham Hughes both winning 21-5 and Bob Chatham 21-6.

Battlefield B 4 (162) Bricklayers A 8 (180) The Division’s champions won again as Tim Norman confirmed their 21st victory of the season with 21-9, although Dave Cadwallader bettered this with 21-7.

Meole Brace C 4 (157) Pontesbury D 8 (159) This result confirmed Meole’s relegation but the Pontesbury D team still have a mathematical chance of staying up after this away win. Margaret Tudor 21-4 and Cliff Evans 21-5 helped set up the win as Bob Plimmer 21-6 and Derek Jones 21-7 replied for Meole. 

 

Pontesbury C 8 (190) POWBC B 4 (157) A win for Pontesbury C but not enough to stave off relegation. David Charles won 21-6 and Ray Perry 21-8 for the village side and John Evans won 21-11 for the Humpers.

Bicton Village 10 (191) Unison B 2 (155) This result should keep Bicton Village up and there matching best cards in this game as well with Paul Idris Evans winning 21-6 for the hosts and Bill Moseley for Unison.

Ford Bowling Club (4th April 2015)

It is with great regret that Ford Bowling Club have had to withdraw from the Tanners Claret Shropshire Bowling League with immediate effect. Having being unable to fulfill the financial requirement of the proprietors and consequently losing a number of players, Ford are no longer in a position to use the green and so will be  winding up in the next few weeks. This is a very sad time for all concerned with Ford Bowling Club but it does give current players the chance to relocate if that is their wish. On a personal note I would like to thank all bowling friends for their support and we will see you all around the greens.Where Ford appears on any fixtures in all divisions, this will become a Bye.
Andy Price, Secretary, TCSBL (and member of FORD BOWLING CLUB)

Clubs playing in the Premier League will have to register 12 players who will not be eligible to play in the Shropshire League. The rule change was carried with 36 votes in favour and 7 against.

The proposal from Bayston Hill and seconded by Meole Brace that players can play for one club in the Shropshire Divisions and a different one in the Shrewsbury Divisions was lost as there was not the required two thirds majority (26 voted in favour and 19 against).

The admission of three new teams to the Shropshire Divisions (Monkmoor, Sporting Telepost and Lythwood) makes 45 teams in total. Two formats were put forward - 3 divisions of 15 or 4 divisions split 12:11:11:11. The latter format received a large majority of the votes.

The Shrewsbury Divisions will commence on Tuesday 7 April (Division 4 on 21 April) and the Shropshire Divisions on Friday 24 April (subsequently changed to 17 April).

The Junior Inter League competition was played on Saturday 12th April at Wem Sports and the Tanners League team were drawn in  a group with Mid Shropshire, Ludlow and Whitchurch.


The team beat Mid Shropshire and Ludlow in the group stages but lost to Whitchurch in final group game and finished runners up in the group.


The Tanners team played Whitchurch A in the Consolation Final, but their opponents proved too strong. The side consisted of threee experienced bowlers in Natalie Connor, James Mansell & Callum Parsons and there were also some good performances by the newcomers, Rhys Marshall, Ben Middleton & Kelly Price.


The Secretary would like to thank the six bowlers ( and supporters) who turned up early on a cold Saturday morning and were still going strong at 8.00pm in the evening. Also thanks go to Richard Jones and Gary Middleton for looking after the team all day.

Back Row - Gary Middleton, Callum Parsons, Natalie Connor, James Mansell and John Coxall (County President)

Front Tow - Kelly Price, Rhys Marshall and Ben Middleton.

2014 Season                                                                                       17/02/14

At the League's Annual General Meeting held on 31 January 2014 it was agreed that it would no longer be necessary to have a team playing in the Friday Divisions to play in the Tuesday Divisions. The Tuesday Divisions, which were formally called 'Reserve Divisions', will in future be called the Shrewsbury Divisions. One other change was that any new teams applying to play on a Tuesday in the Shrewsbury Divisions must be located within a 10 mile radius of Shrewsbury.

A proposal to remove the requirement for clubs to have a 'Registered Six' was defeated. This means that any club with a team in both the Friday and Tuesday Divisions must register six players who are not able to play on a Tuesday.

The League's Executive Committee, which includes representatives of all clubs, will be meeting on Thursday 20 February 2014 to decide the league structure for both sets of divisions.

On Line Results System                                                                     17/02/14

League Secretary, Andy Price, reported at the League's AGM that he made significant progress in the possibility of introducing an on line results system, whereby teams could send their results in electronically. It was hoped that this new system would be ready for use in the 2014 season.

At the League Executive Meeting held on 16 May 2013 suggestions from the Management Committee were put forward for clubs to consider with a view to the matter being fully debated at the next League Executive Meeting on 18 July 2013.

The Management Committee had previously met to consider a wide range of issues raised by clubs over recent seasons as they have increasingly struggled to raise full sides for a number of reasons, resulting in the withdrawal of several teams/clubs.

Below is a summary of the points highlighted for possible changes to the League's structures:

Tuesday Divisions

 

The divisions on a Tuesday would no longer be called Reserves, to reflect the reality of the situation that very few clubs operate those teams in such a way.

It would be renamed the Tanners Shrewsbury League and only entries from clubs within a ten mile radius of Shrewsbury would be admitted. This would not effect exisiting clubs outside the radius who would continue as members.

It would not be necessary to have a team in the Friday League to enter the Tuesday League and as now clubs can have more than one team (in such a case the current Reserve Team rules regarding registering specific players would remain).

Any Premier League player who has played more than three Premier games would not be able to play for the remainder of the season in this League, otherwise no other player restrictions would apply.

As per existing rules any club entering a team must have a minimum of 12 players registered.

Friday League

 

This would continue to be known as the Tanner Shropshire Bowling League and would be 12 a side with no requirement for a Registered 6.

Clubs can, as now, have more than one team but each side must have its own identity and squad of players.

Teams must have a minimum of 14 registered players.

Cups

 

No changes are proposed to the Tanner/Champagne and Fullwood/Scadding Rules.

With regard to the Team Doubles competition this would be open to any team within either league to enter and the Handicap system would apply as now

e.g. First Reserves = First Division of Tuesday Night League.

 

League Merit                                                                                                                             07/05/13

Graeme Wornell of the Prince Hotel was winner of the League Merit played at Severnside beating Dave Peach of Castlefields 21-5. The losing semi finalists were Adam Jones of Castlefields and Doug Edwards of POWBC. The trophies were presented by County President John Hughes.

Annual General Meeting                                                         03/02/13

At the AGM it was reported that Bromfield had resigned from the league. It was agreed that Division One would comprise 13 teams and the remaining three divisions twelve teams. This means that Hadnall avoid relegation from Division Three. Fixtures are due to be released at the next Executive Meeting on 21 February 2013. The Reserve League will start on Tuesday 2 April and the First Teams on Friday 5 April 2013.

The proposal to reduce the Friday teams to ten a side was defeated by a sizeable majority, with only five delegates voting in favour. The second rule change relating to playing two games on the same fixture night was agreed.

Annual General Meeting                                                         28/01/13

The Annual General Meeting of the League will be held at the Bagley Bowling Club on Friday 1st February 2013 at 7 p.m.

Items for discussion include the pecking order for 2013 and two proposed rule changes:

Change to Rule 8A, proposed by Dorrington and seconded by Wem USC, to the effect that all teams in the Tanners Shropshire Leagues on Friday evenings shall consist of ten players (rather than 12 as at present).

Change to Rule 8R, proposed by the Fixture Secretary and seconded by the Executive Committee, that no player shall be permitted to  play two matches in the Tanners Shropshire League on the same fixture night.

All clubs are entitled to send a representative and a delegate to the meeting, however, voting is restricted to one vote per club. The voting in of any change or alteration to a rule must be at least twice the amount for as against.

League Executive Meeting                                                     27/02/11

The fixtures were released at the League Executive Meeting held on 24 February 2011 at the Bagley BC. Divisions One and Three start on 1 April 2011 as previously reported. However, the Fixtures Secretaries have done a great job in arranging Divisions Two and Four so there are no byes and there is a free week for all teams in those divisions on 1 July (apart from Wem USC who entertain Meole Brace on that date). As a consequence Divisions Two and Four start two weeks later on 15 April and finish a week earlier on 16 September 2011.

Late withdrawals from the Reserve Divisions are Bricklayers B and Greenfields D from the Fourth Reserve Division. A serious doubt remains about the Severnside team in the Third Division (Friday).

The one day four a side charity competition, sponsored by MyCom, has been moved from Saturday 18 June to Saturday 2 July 2011 to avoid a clash with the Victorian Olympics event in the Quarry.

Annual Meeting                                                                   28/01/11

At the Annual Meeting it was agreed that the format for the league season will be:

First Teams (start 1 April 2011)

1st Division - 13 teams

2nd Division - 12 teams

3rd Division - 13 teams

4th Division - 12 teams

The above format was agreed following the withdrawal of Royal Mail, Harlescott and Atcham Malthouse plus the readmittance of Preston Brockhurst. There remains serious doubt whether Severnside will be able to field a side, hence the reason for the 3rd Division to have 13 teams, which would mean that if they withdraw the 3rd Division would also consist of 12 teams.

Reserves (start 5 April 2011)

The reserve leagues will change to a four division format following the withdrawal of several teams and there remains the possibility or two more may follow.

1st Division -  14 teams

2nd Division - 14 teams

3rd Division - 14 teams

4th Division - 13 teams

 

New League  Chairman is Mike Caddick and new Competition Secretary is Anthony Price.

It was also agreed that the Floodlight competition would not be held and instead a one day four a side competition will be held on Saturday 18 June 2011. Mycom have offered to sponsor the competition, which will also be used as a charity event. Details of the format of the competition will be agreed at the next League Meeting in March.

 

League Executive Meeting                                                        16/01/11

A League Executive meeting was held on 13 January 2011 where the resignations of Harlescott and Royal Mail first and reserve teams were sadly announced. Atcham Malthouse have also withdrawn their reserve team and there was a strong possibility that Monkmoor B would resign.

As it currently stands there are 51 Friday teams and 55 reserve teams. There will be a proposal at the AGM on Friday 28 January 2011 to revert to four reserve divisions, given the recent withdrawals from the reserve divisions.
