MSS invites all Boro fans to the annual MSS Grant Harrison Pool Tournament hosted at the Hurricane Rooms near Kings Cross Station at 7.30pm on Friday the 23rd October 2015.
Our friend and MSS member Grant Harrison tragically died at the age of 36 on January 6th 2012 and will always be remembered for his personality. His best man Paul De Graves will be in attendance to uphold our tradition of presenting the trophy to the newly crowned champion.
The Grant Harrison Pool Tournament is an annual event for all Boro fans in the Capital. The tournament follows the Football World Cup format with members placed into groups with the top two moving into the quarters and semis before the third / fourth playoff and grand final.
The winner takes home a hand crafted pool cue, a special Grant Harrison engraved plate as well as the coveted Grant Harrison Trophy.
The Grant Harrison Trophy has to be seen to be believed. Past champions have likened it to the first time they saw the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls or the Transporter bridge, that moment when words cannot do justice to what your eyes are seeing and you are locked into a world of total consciousness when the whole universe is connected, connected with beauty and love.
The top two in the tournament win an automatic place onto the MSS pool team (if they so wish) with Lee Gutcher’s captain's pick for the remaining squad members. The APFSCIL pool league is made up of rivals such as current champions Newcastle, Sunderland and bitter rivals Hull and begins in November 2015 with 10 games throughout the season.
Previous winners and holders of the trophy include cool-hand-luke Joe Thompson, key member of the MSS pool team and former midfield sensation, Grant Harrison's closest friend Paul ‘Digger’ De Graves and current champion Ash ‘quiff’ Leek who dominated last years tournament whilst sporting a 1986 Gary Lineker arm bandage. Many feel the bandage was a gimmick to distract his competition rather than a tool to support biological healing. Combined with his beautifully conditioned quiff players complained of significant distractions. Such subtle cheating will not be accepted this year.
Over recent years the MSS has gone from strength to strength with successful football teams, a strong pool team and regular poker matches as well as a vibrant and welcoming social scene. The tournament provides an incredibly unique opportunity to meet other Middlesbrough fans living in the Southern region.
If you want to join in the pool tournament to play a few games and meet like minds then buy your entry ticket below. Tickets cost £10; which covers cost of tables and a small donation to a charity of Paul De Graves choosing.
We look forward to seeing you there!
