Butland & Watson
Shields & Chamberlain
J Atthey & Robinson
Reserves: Wearmouth & Hill.
The match will be played as 2 teams of 4, involving 2 sets of 12 boards. The results will be aggregated.
A multiple teams event for 16 counties has been arranged for Sat. 23rd May, 13:00-17:00. The format is teams of 4 but a county team may consist of 2,3 or 4 pairs. Each county may field one team of good club players for whom this will generally be the first time they represent their county (NGS Q-J is another rough indicator). Surprisingly, Glos. had only one pair that fitted those criteria. I`m sure we won`t be alone. There is a great opportunity for more players of approx. Q-J who play online to contact me to represent Glos. in similar standard competitions. 7 of the 8 players selected have not represented the county at the table. The overall NGS is a high Jack, so entirely within the spirit of the competition.

Ian Sidgwick & Paul Spencer

An on-line match vs Lincs has been arranged for this w/e with matches played between 10.00 Sat. am & 10 pm Sunday evening, 2nd or 3rd May at a time agreed between the captains of each of the 7 teams of 4. As this is Gloucs first on-line match, we agreed to play a 16 boards but this may finish too quickly if all the players are adept at BBO so longer matches may be played in future.
This is a match of 7 teams of 4 in 5 categories, namely: (1) a Dawes team (2) 3 teams of Porter/Markham, (3) a team of NGS 9, (4) a team of NGS 8, and (5) a Ladies team

We run training days about once a quarter, and squad practice games on most months. These are geared at those who are currently representing the county or are touching on representing the county, but they are not restricted - anyone is welcome.
For the training days (Saturdays usually, 1000-1530, £10 cost is building up funds to get external professional trainers in) there is a Doodle Poll at https://doodle.com/poll/nb7eqiyd523em7s9
For the squad practice games, they are played in Cheltenham on the 3rd Wednesday and in Box, near Stroud, on the 3rd Thursday 1900- 2230 of applicable months. The applicable Doodle Poll is at https://doodle.com/poll/winvsyg9iazcpw3z
