The final match of the 2016 BAL Division I season took place in the Rio of Southern England, Basingstoke (wait... that doesn't sound right). Yet again, a small but battle hardened squad of GCAC athletes delivered a heartening team performance to finish 5th place on the day. This in turn meant that we finished 4th overall in the table - level on match points with the 3rd placed club - to secure another year in the 2nd tier of the national league. Our congratulations to league winners, Thames Valley Harriers, and 2nd placed Southampton, both of whom are deservedly promoted to the Premiership.
