GSCD reach last 16 of Champions League

The Glide, Slide, Chip and Dip Club, English Champions and top-ranked English team, represented the ESA at the recent FISTF Champions League/Europa League weekend in Rome.

After a tough draw, GSCD manage to upset the hosts and group leaders CCT Roma to book their slot in the elite competition, sending former  world #1s AS Hennuyer (Belgium) and Wiener Neustadt (Austria) into the consolation Europa League.

Their Champions League group provided stiff competition, and defeats from last season’s Europa League champions Valleta SC (Malta) – with Englishman Chris Short – and Black and Blue Pisa (Italy) ended the GSCD Club’s competition. A consolation victory against another top Italian Serie A side Perugia rounded off their weekend in style.

Well done to all players.

GSCD were represented by:

Justin Finch (Captain), Bob Varney, Chris Thomas, Darren Clark and Matt Lampitt
