Warwick B(ronze!)

Essential for any tournament

Saturday morning and the 4-man polo B-team tour Oxford in search of boats, scattered by flooding! After collection from Cowley, and a brief hunt for the ever-elusive Ross, we were off and away!

The first match saw a team learning how to play with each other, understanding each members’ strengths and weaknesses, and Ross remembering he’s a Keeper! Having drawn 1-1, we brought in the positives, learned the lessons and gained Mike, a wonderful ringer in pink shorts, to take us up to 5.


The next 2 games were a great success, with goals galore against Bangor & ULU! Our final match of the pools was against Southampton. Unlucky in our shots and Southampton lucky in theirs, this saw us 1-0 up at half time, before Southampton got away 2 to win the game.

This put us in the 3rd-4th play-offs against… SOUTHAMPTON! This time the Oxford Bs took no chances. A very convincing team performance and a cool head from Mark as he was binned gave us a 5-2 victory and Bronze medal.

A great tournament all-round and a demonstration of how team play really does win the day, thanks to Mark, Ross, Matt (and of course Mike!).
