The Veterans Merit takes place at Broseley tomorrow at 1 p.m. and it could well be survival of the fittest given the temperatures that are supposed to be reached! Former winner Alan Boulton will be favourite to win it, but he takes on local player Tony Roche who will have plenty of experience on that green. Bill Tarrell is the recent winner of the Frank Turner Over 60s competition at Chadsmoor and will be hoping to win another big competition in this. He takes on Bill Titley from Newport, a player who again will have some experience of that green. Cedric Bancroft reached the Semi Finals of the County Handicap this season and will be hoping to go one better as he takes on Keith Owen of Meole Brace, with Derek Flattley and Clive Jordan being the first game on in a Shrewsbury Derby match up.
It should be a hot day's bowling on and off the green!
Draw for Veterans Merit to be held at Broseley at 1pm on Tuesday 19th July.
