The HPA Whitbread Trophy

Young Scotland take home the honours

This year, The Whitbread Trophy was played at Cheshire Polo Club on Wednesday 22 August, once again between a Young England team and Young Scotland team. Following early fouls by England close to their own goal, Scotland were 2-0 up within two minutes to the dismay of the home crowd, but with a 60 yard penalty awarded in England’s favour and successfully converted, the score rested at 2-1 at the end of the first chukka. Despite great play from both sides, the scoreboard remained as such until the final whistle. There was no shortage of opportunities for both teams to score field and penalty goals, in what was a closely fought match, but no success. Most notably, there were some strong individual runs by the two 1 goal players, Angus Rowan-Hamilton and Henry Smith, who was particularly well-mounted. In the last chukka and the players made considerable use of the ball, hitting rather than tapping it through play. The Cheshire Polo Club Chairman, Martin Kidd, presented the trophy to the winning Young Scotland team as well as the prizes, provided by La Pampa Polo, to the assembled teams.

The HPA Whitbread Trophy Teams:
Young Scotland (-3): Ben Humphries (-2), Will Younger (-1), Angus Rowan-Hamilton (1) & Mhari Campbell (-1)
Young England (-2): Alex Telfer (-1), Oliver Conway Johnson (-1), Conner Kay (-1) & Henry Smith (1)
