posted 12 Apr 2017, 03:49 by stephen wall   [ updated 12 Apr 2017, 03:52 ]
The club commences its defence of the Mid-Shropshire Leagues Ashton Cup on Wed 19 Apr commencing at 7:00pm. Albrighton are drawn in the preliminary round against Bowring 'C'. Despite being the current holders of the trophy we pick up an handicap of +22 whilst Bowring have +13, this gives the B team a start of 7 chalks even before a wood is played. If victorious in this match the next opponents will be St Georges C who have an handicap of +9, given us an even greater start. The Full draw for the prelim and first round is below. Clarification as to how we can field the same team twice in an evening still has to be resolved with the league.

The rules of the competition are below the draw, however as the match is being played on a Wednesday evening; means that social bowling for that evening will be cancelled, however club members are asked to turn out and support the team in the defence of their title.
