It may have been hard work with plenty of changes but the Senior Inter League is finally ready to go for 2018. 8 teams have been scrambled, although Mid Shropshire are still trying to find one player to complete their team, to get their hands on the trophy. With no Premier, Wem or Ludlow League though it's not as open or competitive as it normally is, along with a loss of some quality players, so the Whitchurch League will be hot favourites on home turf. The Tanners League have won it before in this format, so can't be discounted, but are in Group A with Whitchurch A. However the top two do qualify, and both will be expected to qualify over Mid Shropshire B and North Shropshire Ladies, although the latter will have plenty of green knowledge on their side. Group B has the Market Drayton League in it, who as original hosts, will be hoping to put behind their troubles and do their talking on the green. Mid Shropshire A will be strong, and Market Drayton Seniors and Whitchurch B will have green experience in their armoury, so it could be the most open group.
So after so much talking and changing off the green, hopefully the action on the green will make all it worth while!
There should be live updates with Mike Beckett updating the scores here.
