Shropshire Highways have just announced that Soulton Road Wem (B5065) will be closed from 3 September 2018 for 6 weeks in order to facilitate the repairs to the bridge by Soulton Hall. There will be quite a lengthy diversion in place if you get as far as Prees Green so depending on whether people are travelling from the extreme North of the county / Cheshire / Market Drayton  to Wem it is advisable to plan an alternative route.

At this afternoons AGM Wem Usc were accepted as a new club for 2018. Being as Wem Albion have withdrawn and most of their players will be playing for Wem USC it was decided to replace Wem Albion in Division 1 with Wem USC.
Unfortunately Cheswardine have withdrawn their team from Division 2. Consequently Division 1 and 2 will have 14 teams starting on Tue Apr 3rd and Division 3 with 12 teams starting 2 weeks later on Tue Apr 17th with their last 2 weeks fixtures of the first half reversed the first 2 weeks of the second half to avoid a 2 week break. Fixtures may be viewed via the 2018 Fixtures Results link.
We still do not have a Chairman or Vice Chairman and ask all clubs to consider these positions and nominate someone at the Executive meeting on March 20th.

Following a recent Management the following has been sent out all Club Secretaries:

Hello everyone.
I have to inform you that Reg Cartlidge has resigned as Chairman and Isobel Jones as Vice Chairman.

It is very important that we have nominations for Chairman and Vice Chairman before the AGM.  Please think seriously 
about this as the league cannot continue without volunteers.  There are only 3 meetings a year and not a lot of work is
