Frasers England Triumph

The Ladies International Test Match

In a nail-biting four chukka International match on Saturday 22 June, Frasers England triumphed over Argentina to win The Ladies International Test Match, 7-6. 

Following the Final of The Warwickshire Cup, eight of the world’s best female players took to the Ivy Lodge Ground at Cirencester Park Polo Club for a fantastic display of International female polo prowess. From the off, the match was a battle of wills, as both teams tested their mettle against their opposition. Argentina were the first to find the uprights, with back Lía Salvo securing the first important goal, but as the Frasers England side pulled together, ably led by Captain and 10 goal player Nina Clarkin, the home side began to move ahead of their rivals. 
Following stern team talks during the half-time break, Argentina returned with vigour, evening the scoreboard to 6-6 going into the final moments, but with just two minutes left on the clock, Frasers England number two, Milly Hine, secured the winning goal for the home side and The Polo Magazine Most Valuable Player award along with it. The Dodson & Horrell Best Playing Pony rug was awarded to Sigilo, played by Lía Salvo, whilst the RoR Best Playing Pony rug went to Christmas, played by Hazel Jackson-Gaona.
