Staffordshire bowls clubs are facing closure after being told they must pay the council £2,500 a year for the upkeep of their bowling greens.

The eleven clubs include Tunstall Park, which has been operating for more than 100 years.


Potteries and District County Bowling Association President Phil Owen has tipped Staffordshire University student Rob Roden for future success after his debut performance in the Florence Winter Bowls Series.

Roden, who bowls in the Shropshire Premier League for Bowring, surprised locals with stunning displays in the Stoke tournament to reach the final, before losing 13-6 to Owen.
