Long and short of it



Now only £5.00

As histories on local sporting organisations go, this is a very superior production, evidence of the time, professionalism and, not least, money that has gone into this book marking the centenary of the Shropshire Crown Green Bowling Association. The aim was to produce a quality book, and the association has certainly done that. It even has that glossy quality book smell, if you can have such a thing.

Once the decision was taken to go ahead with the project, the challenge was to raise the £7,000 or so for design and printing, Leagues and clubs affiliated to the association were asked if they could each make a contribution of at least £20.12 - a symbolically significant figure in this centenary year - and the appeal met with a generous response.

The project team comprised former Shropshire Star journalist Malcolm Fletcher, who is now secretary of the Mid Shropshire League, and past association presidents Jeff Hutchinson and Terry Sambrook.

Copies for sale are available either direct from Malcolm on 01952 771134 or Terry on 01743 358776, and will be available at all major county bowling events for the rest of the year. It would have been easy to do the book as a simple chronology, and the result would have been worthy, if rather unimaginative. Instead, the story has been told in lively fashion, picking out highlights, interesting facts, and spotlighting key personalities and events. On the persnalities front, the towering figure is that of Dick Meyrick (1915-1998), who became known as "Mister Bowls" and the book poses the question of whether he was the greatest crown green bowler ever.

Packed with both black and white and colour photos, the book will be a feast for anybody interested in Shropshire bowling, and is a fitting memento and souvenir of 100 unbroken years of the association.
