As the current captain of the UK Online Team, I am very pleased to announce our participation in the WBIF World Team Championships commencing on 1 September.
The team contains the usual suspects in the form of myself (Chris Rogers), Gaz Owen, Leo Waters, Sebastian Wilkinson and Tim Cross, but I am pleased to announce the participation of our new secret weapons in the form of Oliver Squire and Chris Bray.
This will be both Oliver’s and Chris Bray’s debuts in the team competition and I am hopeful of strong performances from both. They both have excellent PRs and high grid gammon ratings, so I am sure my hopes will not be unfounded.
The UK came third in 2015 and won the competition in 2017. “Odd” years seem to be good for us, so I am hopeful for more success in 2019! With the competition being opened up to more and more nations worldwide, the challenge will be tougher than ever, but I have full confidence in our team – the old stalwarts and the newbies alike!
If you have a Gridgammon account and see any of us involved in a 13 point match, then please come and support us, as the more support we get, the better.
