GC International Performance Development Squad for 2017 Announced

[<<] [>>] by Martin French [^] -> bottom
3rd February 2017 (GC)

The IPDS squad chosen for 2017 is (in alphabetical order):

  • Nick Archer
  • Richard Bilton
  • David Crawford
  • Peter Dowd
  • Roger Goldring
  • Paul Gunn
  • Jonathan Powe
  • Chris Roberts
  • Jayne Stevens
  • David Widdison.

Candidates were asked to confirm they could commit to the first squad weekend and to play at least 40 ranked GC games in the year. As a result, Alain Giraud and Howard Cheyne have asked to have their offer of a place deferred until 2018.

The Selectors were most influenced by:

  • evidence of a good number of ranked GC games in the past year
  • a ranking grade that is on the rise - particularly for those rapid improvers with a quickly rising grade
  • evidence of competing in events with strong opposition (so Ascot Qualifiers or A-Level Series, for example).

We wish the new IPDS programme every success under the direction of Rachel Rowe.

Martin French

chairman,

GC Selectors
