Welcome to Staffs & Shrops Contract Bridge Association
Pat Poxon
Pat Poxon

It is with sadness the Staffs & Shrops Contract Bridge Association has heard of the death of Pat Poxon on Thursday May 18th.

 Over the years Pat contributed most considerably to the County, not only on the “admin” side with a long stint as County Secretary, working alongside as many as five chairmen, but also as a regular player in County events.

Pat was a very good player who enjoyed various successes in County Events. Geoff Davies recalls winning the County Mixed Pairs with Pat in 2009. Pat also won the mixed pairs in 2002 with Des Biott. She was a prolific winner of the Ladies pairs winning the event in 2000, 2002, 2010 and 2012, on all occasions with Gillian Allsop. A “flair” player who often achieved good results with her bidding.

It was always enjoyable playing with or against Pat. She could switch off from bridge related themes, had a great sense of humour and always good for a pleasant chat.

Our thoughts are with Pat’s family at this sad time.

Pat's funeral will be held at Bushbury Crematorium West Chapel at 1.30 pm on 15th June 2023.

County Mixed Pairs are to be held on Thursday 8th June 2023 at 7 for 7.15 p.m. at Stafford Bridge Club, ST18 0BD (at the back of the Grandstand, at the County Showground, Weston Road)

Midland Counties Challenge Bowl

Welcome to Staffordshire and Shropshire Contract Bridge Association (S&SCBA). The area covered by the Association ranges from the Welsh border in the West to Burton on Trent in the East, Newcastle under Lyme in the North to Ludlow in the South. Our objectives are to promote duplicate bridge in the counties, to encourage inter-club, etc., competitions and to employ the funds in the best interests of the game.

The County has teams of eight entered in the Midland League (Dawes, Porter and Markham) and annually enters a team in the EBU Tollemache competition. The Midlands league covers Derbyshire, Gloucestershire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire in addition to ourselves. The County also participates in the Edgar Foster Cups and Midland Teams Challenge Bowl, events for the six counties of Derbyshire, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire and ourselves.

During the winter months teams of four league matches for County members are held on the second Wednesday of the month, and there is also a team of four knock-out competition.  Inter Club Sim Pairs are run regularly, and, various pairs competition events are held annually.

County clubs affiliated to the EBU are Border, Eccleshall, Nantwich, Newcastle, Newport, Oswestry, StaffordTettenhallWolverhampton and Wrekin.  Wolverhampton Bridge Club became the playing headquarters of S&SCBA in December 2013.

The final round of the SSCBA league was completed spot on time on Thursday 11th May 2023 with Paul's team of Paul, David, Geoff and Anne the winners, second Jo's team, Jo, Peter, Tony and Lis who were only just ahead of James' team, James, Keith, Martin  and Mike.  Would you believe it no substitutes played in these three teams all season! Not quite true, in one match, Mike McGarry subbed for Mike McCartney  in one match, The results were close, only 20 VP between 1st and 3rd. Well done all.  Any chance of photo ops for any or all of these teams?  For full results click here.
