three things to keep in mind.
1. A person does not need British ancestry to match to a person who has British ancestry. eg, I match with many people who have Native American ancestry but I have zero Native American ancestry. You may wish to read this, especially the early history section http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polish_migration_to_the_United_...

2. There was significant German migration to certain parts of Poland. There was also German migration to the UK http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/familyhistory/next_steps/adv_04...

3. Some of the matches ancestry comes up with could be due to a common ancestor in the 1600's. It is not unheard of to match 10th and 11th cousins at ancestry.

I am not saying any of these are the case here, just that these things may be possibilities to consider.
