A crown green bowl­ing as­so­ci­a­tion has im­ple­mented tougher rules af­ter a rise in al­co­hol-re­lated trou­ble at matches.

Clubs across Shrop­shire face stricter sanc­tions to curb a sharp in­crease in in­ci­dents of anti-so­cial be­hav­iour.

Shrop­shire Crown Green Bowls As­so­ci­a­tion has sent ev­ery club a new code of con­duct.

The out­go­ing county pres­i­dent Mike Cad­dick told the Press As­so­ci­a­tion that play­ers can now be fined, sus­pended or banned if the new rules re­gard­ing drunken be­hav­iour are not fol­lowed.

The tougher guide­lines re­ceived over­whelm­ing ap­proval at the as­so­ci­a­tion’s AGM at Ba­gley BC.

Mr Cad­dick said: “It started to creep in a bit last year, mostly among spec­ta­tors. They were be­ing ov­er­en­thu­si­as­tic mainly as a re­sult of al­co­hol.

“When it starts to get a bit too noisy and a bit too per­sonal with the bad lan­guage then it spoils ev­ery­body’s en­joy­ment.

“The gen­eral opin­ion is that it is not wanted in bowls, it is not what bowls is about.”

Mr Cad­dick said one player had al­ready been banned from play­ing and watch­ing matches due to an­ti­so­cial be­hav­iour.

He added: “He turned up sev­eral times and dis­rupted pro­ceed­ings. It wasn’t as en­joy­able as it should have been.” - Triples Pre­lim (if re­quired) - Triples Fi­nal - Ball­craft En­gravers Hud­der­s­field League (not Sub­scrip­tion, Dray­ton, Binns, Tay­lor) - York­shire/Hutchin­son Cups Qual­i­fy­ing Round - Spring Hand­i­cap Pre­lim - Ball­craft En­gravers Hud­der­s­field League (not Binns, - Vet­er­ans In­ter District v Wake­field - Ball­craft En­gravers Hud­der­s­field League - York­shire v Der­byshire - Ball­craft En­gravers Hud­der­s­field League (York­shire / Henry Tay­lor/Hutchin­son/Radley Cups Round 1) - Paul Sigsworth Cel­e­bra­tion Tro­phy, York­shire Ju­nior - Vet­er­ans In­ter District v Skip­ton - Ball­craft En­gravers Hud­der­s­field League - Jack Bur­gin Tro­phy Pre­lim - Ball­craft En­gravers Hud­der­s­field League (not Sub­scrip­tion, Dray­ton) - Jack Bur­gin Tro­phy Fi­nal, York­shire Boys Merit - York­shire Merit Fi­nal - Vet­er­ans In­ter District v Brad­ford - York­shire /Henry Tay­lor/Hutchin­son/Radley Cups Round 2 - York­shire v South York­shire - Ball­craft En­gravers Hud­der­s­field League
