Mens Gloucestershire Bowls / GBO system County Friendly Matches

With the introduction of the GBO system, applications to be considered for County Friendly Matches  must be made On Line.  The method of doing so is as follows:

Log into the and select GBO system.

It will ask you to Log In, if you have not previously Logged In, go to Create Log In (left hand side), click and follow the instructions, you will need a password.  Click Submit and you will receive a confirmation email, inviting you to Log in.

Having Logged In, click Matches in top left hand side: Next screen select ‘My Matches’.

This then displays all County Matches for which you are eligible, Click ‘Apply’to select your preferred matches.  Clicking the ‘+’ sign gives further match details.

Having selected your preferred matches click ‘Submit’ and ‘Confirm Applications’ on the next screen.

Nearer the time of each match you will receive an email as to whether you have been selected, or not.

If you are a member of a County Competitive Squad (Middleton Cup etc) you still need to Log on to the system to find details of your events.

If the system will not show you any matches it is probably because you have not played before for the County.  In that case, contact one of your Section County Match selectors, who can arrange to put you on the Squad list of available County Men Friendly players.  This will then allow you to Create a Log In.

The GBO system administrator is Bob Berry ( who is available to answer problems. 

Hope this helps
