Shropshire League Survey

The FBC Manby Bowdler Shropshire league have asked all clubs to give their views on the following questions:

1. Does your Club think that single teams should be eligible for promotion to Div1?
2. Does your Club think that 3rd XIs should be eligible for promotion to Div1?
3. Does your Club think that, in general, 2nd, 3rd and 4th teams should be in a separate system as they were some years ago and as they are in the other three strands of the Birmingham League pyramid system?
To enable us to give a response which represents the views of the membership, please post your opinion as a comment against this article, stating your name, or make your view known to Mike Waldron.

2nd XI cricket to be regionalised

At the 2010 Birmingham League AGM clubs voted that the 2nd XI Divisions 2 & 3 will be regionalised. This will be effective starting in 2011.  Division 2 West will be made up of 2nd XI teams from Shropshire & Staffordshire clubs. It is therefore anticipated that this will result in slightly less travelling for our 2nd XI (unless we are promoted this year!) .  The exact arrangements regarding promotion and relegation are yet to be clarified.

Seniors Nets – 21st February – UPDATED

Senior Nets will commence on Sunday 21st February (not 14th February as previously advertised, so you valentines can enjoy valentines day) , 7-8pm at Idsall Sports Centre, Shifnal.  Two nets will be available at the session.  There will be a small charge to cover the hire charge.

A further 7 sessions have been booked at the same time as follows:

28th February
7th March
14th March
21st March
28th March
4th April – No session as this is Easter Sunday
11th April
18th April

Look forward to seeing you there.
