2011 National Inter-County Champions London A


This image is being served from an external server in order to reduce bandwidth cost. If you can




London play Inter-County pool in Region 7 of the EPA, which includes Berkshire, Kent, Hampshire, Surrey, and Sussex.


There are 5 teams: Men's A, B and C, Ladies, and Juniors (U18), each of which plays the other counties home and away, once a month on Sundays, for the title of Regional Champions. The Regional winners (and from 2011 also the runners-up) go to Great Yarmouth in the spring of the following year to compete for the National Title.


London are current National Champions in the A section, and in 2010 we not only did the A and B team double but also our Juniors were National runners-up!


We conduct trials for new players in January of each year.

The winners and runners-up of each of these competitions go to Great Yarmouth to compete for the National titles (in the Autumn for the KO Cup and in the following spring for the Interleague trophy), and also compete in a Regional Inter-League challenge cup against Inter-League winners from the other counties in Region 7.

The starting points for most pool players looking to develop their game, or just have fun playing it in a competitive environment, are the many local leagues being played in pubs and clubs across London.


If you are looking for such a league in your area, check out the "Affiliated Leagues" link below. If there isn't a league local to you in that list please feel free to get in touch with GLCPA, or post a question in our forums.


Leagues themselves are encouraged to affilate to Greater London County Pool Association. This brings many benefits including:


  • Entry into the National Champion of Champions competitions

    for the league winners and singles winners
  • Entry into the London Interleague competition

    for a team (or teams) representing the league. They play teams representing other leagues in London, for the chance to go forward to the National Interleague competition.
  • Support and advice

    regarding for example Rules and matters of a Disciplinary or Organisational nature.
  • Individual benefits

    players in the league become eligible to register, through GLCPA, with the national governing body the EPA. They can then trial for one of the County sides (Men/Ladies/Juniors) which in turn opens the possibility of earning a trial for the England squad.


    They can also enter individual events such as the Region 7 Tour, other national competitions which are restricted to EPA members (including the National Individual Amateur competition), and they become eligible for other events closed to GLCPA members such as our Singles Leagues and World Masters qualifier.


There is a great deal more information on all the above in the "Benefits of Affiliating" document linked to below.


If your league does not currently affiliate to GLCPA, but you'd like them to take advantage of the opportunities listed above, please put it to your league's committee and ask them to have a look at this page and/or get in touch.

London Seniors report home to Berkshire

Inter County17.5.15 Berkshire (home)

London Seniors 6 Berkshire Seniors 14

A disappointing result for London against a team London beat twice last season.

We won the first set 3-2 and looked set to for a tight match. But disaster struck in the second and third sets with Berkshire white washing us in both to leave London trailing 12-3. A brief rally saw London edge out the final set 3-2 to make the result 6-14.

Only Paul Dawson came out with any credit with a 2/4 performance, and captain Allan Formosa cursing the teams luck as the score line didn’t reflect the nature of the defeat. We now need to bounce back to form quickly in our next match.

LONDON JUNIORS V BERKSHIRE JUNIORS

Inter CountyThe juniors played Berkshire juniors today at spots and stripes. Our managers car broke down and unfortunately couldn't make it. So the older lads in the team took the reigns. We set a target for ourselves of 33 frames and boy did the boys respond.

***SET ONE***

The boys raced out of the block winning 9 out of the 11 frames possible with some great displays of safety, potting and battling hard for frames. All of the time on the practice table seemed to be paying off.

SET SCORE - 9-2


***SET TWO***

We picked up from where we left off in the first set. Winning 10 out of the 11 frames. Kieran was unlucky in the frame we lost, with there player fluking a few snookers at vital moments. But another great set

SET SCORE - 10-1


***SET THREE***

The boys looked rejuvenated after the food break (munching on chilli & rice and jacket potato lol) and fired in another 10-1 set win and in doing so securing the match. I said to the other team members don't let the foot off the gas because frames could be crucial later on in the season. And they sure as hell didn't.

SET SCORE - 10-1


***SET FOUR***

We kept on the offensive in the last set. Hoping for a record scoreline but it wasn't to be only by 3 frames. Some more good solid match pool displayed especially by the younger members of the team!

SET SCORE - 9-2

HAMPSHIRE A 23 V 21 LONDON A

Inter CountyA disappointing away defeat against a Hampshire side who had only managed a draw in their opening 2 fixtures. London started brightly enough, taking the first set 7 v 4, with wins for Dave Rawlinson, Robbie Robb, Alex Lawrence, Nigel Smith, Glen Tingley, Jordan O'Connor and Rupert Ward.

Hampshire responded really well, playing some good stuff and making home advantage count, winning the second set 8 v 3 and the third set 6 v 5 to open up an 18 v 15 lead, but London did miss chances in these sets and also seemed a bit subdued.

Dave and Robbie won the first 2 frames of the final set to bring us within a frame of our opponents, only for Hampshire to win the next 3 frames to lead 21 v 17. London fought back really well, through Joe Prince, Nigel, Declan Kelly and Jordan, to put us level at 21 v 21 - and turn up the support level a few decibels - only to see us lose the last 2 frames to give Hampshire the win: Glen losing a tricky tactical frame after just failing to reach a cushion, and Jerry Tickell squandering a clear cut chance to secure a draw. Ouch!

We can take some positives out of this match however. Robbie did well returning to the team at short notice, Declan did very well winning 3 out of 4 on his seasonal debut for the A's, and most notably, man of the match Dave Rawlinson consolidating his spot as an opener with a really gritty 4 out of 4.

Hampshire C 13 -31 London C (12th April 2015)

Inter CountyHampshire C 13 -31 London C (12th April 2015)

Great match played in a wonderful atmosphere and club, produced a great result for London by a team that supported each other throughout. The support meant that we had plenty of energy left in set 3 to get the win and set 4 to increase that lead.

What made me feel proud was the support given to people when they lost, which meant that the event was a most enjoyable one; even better since we won :-).

Special mention to Peter Pan who despite playing well and winning 2/2, gave up 2 games so that Shane could play. Ross, Ryan and Kully all got 4/4 but Ryan also did a Break dish making him the man of the match.

London Seniors report, Away to Hampshire

Inter County12.4.15 Hampshire (away)
Hampshire Seniors 9 London Seniors 11
London made an impressive start against Hampshire white-washing the opponents to lead 5-0 after the first set including Jerry Tickell with a break and clear. London were motoring albeit with a couple of squad players light, and confidence was high. One or two frames slipped away but a 7-3 lead at the halfway mark was very healthy. It became 9-3 with Martin Storey who potted nicely all day winning his third frame, and man of match Glen Tingley fudging away to turn tight frames around. London thought it was virtually all over bar the shouting. Hampshire came roaring back, interspersed by an important win for Adam Hewson and the lead was cut to 10-8. When the opponent dry broke and the balls fell open Paul Gafa’ kept his nerve to dish and secure the 3 point win bonus, with frame 19 still in play. A sigh of relief all round. But a good team performance from all the players, to put London joint top of the division.

I/L Friendly London Leopards v SLKPA II

Inter LeagueFriday 11th April saw the London Leopards play their inaugural match at Rileys Woolwich against SLKPA II. While the purpose of this report is mainly to thank Scott and his team for the opportunity for us to play a friendly match ahead of the new season I ought to say a little bit about the evening itself.

We lost 20-7 (largely irrelevant in a friendly match) but both Ange (as Captain) and myself (as nobody really!) were really pleased to see the support and encouragement that everyone gave each other within the team. I was also impressed by the standard of some of the players I hadn't seen so much of in the past and with a little more confidence (which will come) they will be a force to be reckoned with. We were also missing two or three regulars so it all bodes well for the new season.

Frames won:
Nat & Sarah 2/3
Petrina, Linda and Millie 1/3

So thanks again to SLKPA II for what was a very enjoyable evening. If anyone else is interested in playing us in a pre season friendly then please let me know.

LONDON B 29-15 KENT

Inter CountyLONDON B 29- 15 KENT

So following on from our mixed performance against Surrey in our opening fixture we came up against a Kent side who had beaten us quite convincingly on both occasions last season.

SET 1 7-4

Going into this match as i hope we do every match we felt confident of turning the tide on our Kent counterparts after the 2 losses against them last season, and this was shown as we flew out of the blocks racing into 5-0 lead with wins from Chris Hobbis, George Hammond, Declan Kelly (joining from the A's), Andre Cox (joining from the A's) and Bruno Silva. Rob cork lost the next frame to give Kent hope of putting a run together only for Will Gayler to break dish the next frame, this was followed by 2 losses from Micky C and Pete Thomas but Tony Mcdowell then won another followed by kent winning the last frame of the first set.

SET 2 7-4

Ok so the second set kicked of in a similar fashion to the first set with Mr Hobbis winning the first followed by Kent nicking the next against an unlucky George Hammond followed by Declan, Andre and bruno all racking up wins to push us even further in front.
Kent pulled two frames back beating Rob Cork and Will Gayler before captain Micky C won his frame Pistol Pete Thomas lost but Tony Mcdowell and Dan Heinink then won to put us into a mid interval lead of 14-8.

SET 3 7-4

So the third set began with a six frame lead and us having blown a lead the previous match determined not to let this happen again.
The second set began and the ever reliable Chris Hobbis and George Hammond started with wins declan then lost followed by a win from Andre Cox.
Kent then managed to win the next two beating Bruno and Rob before the Vice captain Will Gayler and Captain Micky C stepped up to win.
Glen Hargreaves stepped into the fold having replaced Pete Thomas at the interval and was unlucky to lose his first ever frame for the B team having deserved his call up after an impressive performance for the C team last match. Tony Mcdowell and Dan Heinink then pushed us even further in front with two great wins.

SET 4 8-3

So going into the final set we only needed 2 frames to secure the win which led to a quick team talk pointing to the fact that we must first get across the line before we worry about frame difference.
Well what can i say we blew them away in the first 4 frames putting us into a 25-12 lead with wins from Chris Hobbis, George Hammond, Declan Kelly and Andre Cox.
Kent managed to win he next 3 frames beating Bruno, Rob and Will before we really hammered home the victory with wins from Micky C, Glen Hargreaves first win for the B's , Tony Mcdowell and Super Dan Heinink which gave us a fantastic 29-15 victory.

This was a great team performance from the lads having again showed some great ability on the table with the team spirit needed to build a team to be proud of.
So its now onto our next match away to Hampshire.
LETS GO AND SMASH THEM BOYS !!!!!

LONDON A 23 V 21 KENT A

Inter CountyLondon put in a much improved performance against a decent Kent team who'd won their opening fixture. A really good first set saw us take an 8 v 3 lead. We shared the next 2 sets, 5 v 6 and 6 v 5 to keep our 5 frame lead intact and when Joe Prince put us 20 v 14 up at the start of the last set a comfortable home win looked likely. However Kent came back at us really strongly, rattling off 6 frames in a row to level at 20 v 20. Jack Pople and Jordan O'Connor then stepped up to win 2 massive frames for London. Willie Anderson kept Kent in the match after Glen Tingley missed a tricky black down the rail and Ben Savage looked set to break and clear for the draw only to snooker himself on the black. An in-off then gave Jerry Tickell the opportunity to pot the yellows with 2 shots before sinking the black for the win. Phew!

Man of the match was Jordan O'Connor with a really impressive 4 out of 4, but this was a good all round team performance with everyone contributing. Team spirit and support was excellent and we'll now be looking to improve again, next month away to Hampshire.

LONDON LADIES HOME TO KENT 08.03.2015

Inter CountyThe team was still buzzing after our win against Surrey but now it was time to play the formidable Kent. At the team talk I introduced our new signing Michaela Lester and said it would be great if we bettered our last score against them. The team all agreed that this was not good enough and was going for the win. I now introduce the New and very positive London Ladies County team.

Just before we started Kent announced that they were a player short, a quick adjustment to our team playing order and we were ready for the big fight.

The first leg we went 4-1 down, with Kirsty taking a great frame even though she should be giving birth to her son today. Kent had a the better run of the table, but Emma, Sharon and Sarah E pulled it back to 4-4 and with the bye and an in off the black from Kent we squeezed ahead 6-5. The team support and atmosphere was amazing from both sides.

The second leg was a more closely fought set, each team going ahead by only one frame at a time. Sharon and Corinne won their games and the bye helped us go ahead 11-9 but Kent managed to pull it back and make it 11-11.

The third leg Charlotte, Kate and Avril were substituted in for Lucy, Angie and Sarah l. The team were playing really well but we were still not getting any luck our way.
Kerry, Emma and Sharon won their frames and with the bye the score stood at 15-18 to Kent. There was still a good chance that we could take the win but we had to really focus and dig deep.

The fourth leg saw us lose the first 4 frames taking the score to 15-22. The win was out of the question but the draw was not.
Michaela, Emma and Sharon won their frames taking the score to 18-22. Could we manage to take Kent to the draw, something we have not done in a very long time? Alas it was not to be but the final score was 20-24 to Kent and a fantastic achievement for us.

To say that I was proud of my team would be an understatement. Everybody played their part whether they won or lost their frames. The atmosphere, team moral and support was amazing and this was what helped us to our best result against Kent.

Sharon 4/4 Emma 3/4

Kerry, Sue, Michaela 1/4

Woman of the Match
It’s not an easy task to win one frame against Kent but to get four is awesome. Sharon Bains deserved this award hands down.

London C 17 v 27 Kent C

Inter CountyLondon C 17 -27 Kent C (8th March 2015)

After a very good start away to surrey we came up against another very strong side in Kent. Each game was very close, very competitive and could have gone either way, but Kent came away with a great result winning 27 to 17. They must be contenders yet again for the top spot, but we shall learn from this and come back stronger.

London C (Home) v Kent C Match synopsis

Set 1 London C 6 - 5 Kent C
Set 2 London C 4 - 7 Kent C

London started well but Kent fought back in the second set. Each game could of gone either way but Kent were 12- 10 up after 2 sets.

Set 3 London C 2 - 9 Kent C

As usual in county matches, the third set is the one that usually determines the winners. Last month we won the third set by the exact score that we lost this time, and we won 8 in a row last month whereas this month we lost 8 in a row. Not sure if Karma is trying to tell us something here or it was just one of those days ; this left the score at 21 12 to Kent, again the exact opposite of what we did to Surrey !

Set 4 London C 5 - 6 Kent C

London fought hard but it was mission impossible at this stage and Kent got over the line in game 4, but London held their heads high and took 3 more games to leave a more respectable score of 17 27 to Kent. Man of the match goes to Richard Chapman for fighting so hard and winning a deserved 4/4

A close match against the team that topped the region’s table in 2014, with the first two sets shared 3-2. London rode our luck a little but also had Adam Hewson in inspiring form. After the third set, London were just edging it 8-7, but from here in London upped our game and closed the match out winning 4 of the last 5 frames for an impressive 12-8 victory. Other than Hewson no one really stood out, but a good team performance by all involved.
