Flannels England Lose Out to India
12th Manipur Polo International
Over the past week, teams have been competing for The 12th Manipur Polo International, in the home of polo, Manipur, India, as part of The Manipur Sangai Festival. Following an exciting few days play, Flannels England secured their spot in the Final having drawn their Semi Final game against the USA.
In the Final on Thursday 29 November, Flannels England just lost out to India B. Brit, George Shelton, was named the Most Valuable Player, having played exceedingly well throughout for the Flannels England side. Following the presentation, Shelton made the decision to donate the 50,000 rupees (the equivalent of around £550) he’d been gifted, to a local charity in support of Manipuri ponies. A full report will follow in the next issue of Polo Times, so make sure your subscription is up to date here.
