We have been sent a statement from Bowring Club Captain Richard Lawson on behalf of the Bowring Committee, which is below:
It is with sad reluctance that The Bowring have decided to withdraw from the Shropshire Premier Bowls League. Due to a number of departures over the winter the club feels it does not have enough players to field all the teams that play on a Friday or the strength in depth to be able to field a team capable of competing in the SPBL. It is a very sad decision but one that is right for the club.
The Salop Leisure Shropshire Premier Bowling League would like to thank Bowring for their 11 seasons in the league and wish them all the best for the future and hope to see them try to win their place back in the league in the near future.
A further statement will be issued on what will happen with the place left vacant by Bowring’s sad resignation.
