17/02/16 - Smethwick & District Sunday Morning Bowling League (Est.1976) - Update

There was one notable change at the Smethwick S.M.B.L. AGM on Monday evening with Colin Grove stepping down as Secretary after 26 years (1990-2015). He was replaced by Broomfield member Mark Hadley who becomes only the 4th secretary of league since its inception in 1976.

The 2016 season will commence on Sunday 3rd April with the preliminary rounds of the cup competitions. Broomfield 'A' have a bye and will play Royal Oak 'A' on Langley in the first round on Sunday 29th May. Broomfield 'B' will play in the Consolation Cup preliminary round against Towers 'A' on Coombswood (3rd April). The league season starts on Sunday 10th April.

2016 will be the 41st season of the Smethwick League and Broomfield are one of only two founder clubs remaining, Old Chapel being the other. Broomfield life member Bill Adams will enter his 30th year as President of the league having been one of the leagues founders back in 1976. That came about after the Harborne & District Wednesday League was dissolved of which Bill was also Secretary. Bill went on to be Smethwick League Secretary (1976-1983), Treasurer (1976-1980) and was made a life member of the league in 1986. In 1987 he was made President, an honorary role he holds to this day.

Broomfield have a record 15 Division 1 titles (9 runners up) and have won the S.F.Jones Cup a record 7 times (3 runners up). The club enjoyed a golden period between 1989 and 2003 with 12 Division 1 titles in 15 seasons. We entered a 'B' team in 1980 who themselves have competed in Division 1 on four occasions. Ollie Newman will captain the 'A' side for the third time in 2016 and will be looking to repeat the 2012 season where he led the team to a first Division 1 title on Portland Road soil. Jim Watkin enters his 8th season as captain of the 'B' team who are looking to gain promotion back to Division 2.

16/02/16 - Warwick & Worcester fixtures are due for release on Saturday 20th February.

05/02/16 - Dudley & District League fixtures for the 2016 season are now available on the leagues website: www.dudleybowlsleague.co.uk Broomfield have one team in the Thursday league (Division 5) and start the season at home to Dudley Dell 'C' on Thursday 7th April. The side will be captained by Mick Haydon.
