MANCHESTER GREATER AGAIN.
Congratulations to the Mens “A” and “B” squads for an excellent season with both teams finishing as runners up in the Regional Inter-County tables.  Our GMC county Seniors who have been very successful in recent years achieved 3rd place in what is a very good inter-county regional division.  Ladies have shown a major move forward winning 4 games during 2019 with a final spot of 5th place although achieving the same points total as the 3rd/4th teams.
Both of the Mens teams will have a place at the National Finals (End February) which has not been achieved in recent years. 
All of our county sides had impressive wins in the last regional matches of the 2019 season which is very promising for further progress by our county teams in the 2020 season.  Trials for new players and those not retained from this season will be in February.
The GMC Pool executive committee would like to thank all involved with our inter-county teams during the past season for their support and the excellent results achieved by the players.

COUNTY MATCH REPORTS VERSUS MERSEYSIDE DECEMBER 2019
Qualified for the National Intercounty finals in Yarmouth for the first time in over 10 years with an impressive 26-18 victory.
Having lost the first session, the team fought back well under pressure to achieve a great team win and gain the 3 points needed to put them into 2nd place in the Regional 2 inter-county “A” rankings with a place in the Nationals Finals.
Team vice captain Steve Mak won 3 out of 4 games to finish the season as GMC’s Number 1 ranked player, also qualifying for a place in the Finals which decide places for the National Team.
Also excellent performances from Sam Reynolds, Steve Witkiewicz, Lee Bradley and Mark Beeson with 3 wins out of 4
Player of the Match was England Star Aaron Davies with 4 wins.

“B” TEAM REPORT.
Best performance of the 2019 season with an 36-8 win which put the squad into 2nd place in the Regional Inter-County rankings, earning the team a place in the National Finals at Great Yarmouth.
Maximum wins 4 out of 4 for Rob Hillyard, Gareth Owen, Steve Brewis & Ian McMullan.
Player of Match Andy Smithies with back to back 8 ball clearances.
Team always in charge with wins in each of the 4 sessions which gave the team 3 points required to send the “B” squad to the National finals. A great performance to end the season for the team.

SENIORS TEAM REPORT.
Another good performance with a 21-14 success in the final match.  Team ended up in 3rd spot in the regional tables which are one of the strongest sections in the country.  Disappointing final position after the teams performance the previous season ending on top without losing a match.
Player of Match was Alan Haydon winning all 5 games.
Alan along with Ian Sutton and Farat Buta have secured England Team trials and may be joined by other of our GMC squad depending on the final tables after this months matches.

LADIES TEAM REPORT.
Performance of the year with a 23-21 win against a very good Lancs. “B” ladies team.  Started off slowly in 1st session but picked up momentum to be only 2 frames behind by half way point.
Won 6 frames on the bounce to take the lead and continued a great comeback into the home stretch to achieve a great win, our 4th of the season.  Four of our players had 3 wins from 4 with Rachel Sherratt the GMA Player of the Match.
Well done to Chloe Smithies and Marie Cosgrove who ended as joint 1st for the season on equal points, Marie having played 2 less frames.
