  • Team Captains - Update
    Unfortunately, Ken Jenkins has indicated that he won't be bowling for the club in the forthcoming season and consequently won't be captaining Islanders B. John Palmer will run the team instead.
    Pete Driver has agreed to run the Islanders C team in the Highley League division 2.

  • Bowling Meeting
    An early pre-season bowling meeting was held at the club on Monday 27th January, attended by over 50 members. The main discussion points were:
    • That there was insufficient support for bowling in the Wolverhampton & South Staffs League on a Saturday so we've had to withdraw our team.
    • Whether we can run four teams (two in Div 1 & two in Div 2 subject to league approval) or only three teams in the Highley League. This is yet to be resolved.
    • In order to resolve player registration issues in the Results Service, the Highley League teams will all be called Islanders (A, B, C and possibly D). Approved.
    The majority of team captains were elected as follows:

    League  Captain  
     Shropshire Premier  Scott Harries  
     Mid-Shropshire Division 1  Ian Hopson 
     Mid-Shropshire Division 2  TBA  
     Mid-Shropshire Division 5  Mick Corfield  
     Telford Ladies  Fiona Hammond  
     Highley Division 1 Islanders A  Simon Rhodes  
     Highley Division 1 Islanders B  John Palmer
     Highley Division 2 Islanders C ?
     Pete Driver
     Highley Division 2 Islanders D  Fiona Hammond  
     Mid-Shropshire Seniors Division 1 Bylet A  Pete Driver  
     Mid-Shropshire Seniors Division 1 Bylet B  Geoff Carnell

  • Club Closed Until Further Notice
    Following yesterday's advice from the government asking everyone to avoid clubs and social gatherings, the officers have taken the difficult decision to close the club until further notice. This action is taken with great regret but the safety of our members is our main concern.
    The weekly bonus ball will be frozen after this Saturday's draw. It will recommence when the club reopens.
    To those of you yet to pay your subscription, we will not be collecting any more until the club reopens and will decide at that point how much it will be.
    All dominoes, darts and the weekly bingo are cancelled.
    We are going to take this opportunity to complete the reseeding of the poor areas on the No.1 green so it will not open but will still be cut regularly. Once it has dried out, the No.2 green will be open for anyone who wants to get in a bit of practice.
    Please keep an eye on the web site for further announcements.
