Some Historic Information from Ian Eustis
1964 was the first six nation Glorney (almost certainly the home nations plus France & Netherlands). 1968 was the first eight nation Glorney. I think that Scotland, in 1974, was the first Celtic country to host six nations and it remained at six for all the following years. An eight year cycle was initiated in 1991. It ran as agreed until 1998. There appears to have been six nations in 1990. Belgium were present, but France were not.

A second cycle ran for seven years from 1999 to 2008 in which Netherlands did not host. In 2006 a new financial regime was instituted, but only three Nations, England, Ireland and Wales participated. Thereafter, it has remained as a competition between the four home nations.

In 2007 the Robinson and Stoke cup competitions were added to the Glorney and Gilbert-Faber. The first Faber competition was held in 1968. Initially they were held at the British Championships. The Faber was staged alongside the Glornay for the first time in 1976 and by 1979 it appears to have been the regular practice.

The first Glorney competition that I was involved in was 1975 in Carmarthen. I was elected as secretary, in sucession to Ken Bloodworth, in 1991 and I have been to every Glorney tournament since, although my memory of most of them, especially the players, somewhat hazy.
