Hildon Archie David Cup Final

Convincing win for Clarita

 Yesterday, Sunday 5 July, Clarita faced AFB in The Hildon Archie David Final at Guards Polo Club. Clive Reid was no doubt hoping to replicate his win with his AFB team a decade earlier.  The Final was livestreamed via Guards TV and if you didn’t manage to watch the Final live you can still watch the action by clicking here. 15 teams entered this year’s tournament, which forms part of the Hurlingham Polo Association’s 8 Goal Victor Ludorum series.  

Clarita secured themselves a convincing 9-4 win against AFB, dominating the Final of the UK’s leading 8 goal tournament. 14-year-old Louis Hine became the youngest player to win The Hildon Archie David Cup. Scoring five goals, Louis had an outstanding match and was awarded the Hildon Most Valuable Player award.  
Clarita dominated play from the outset and by half-time held a strong 5-1 lead. AFB managed to pull themselves back into the game in the second half, but it wasn’t enough and Clarita added their name to the coveted trophy. Clarita’s Jack Hyde, took home the Hildon Best Playing Pony rug for Molly. 
In The Subsidiary Final for The Caterham Cup was equally competitive, which saw Louise Jebson’s CANI narrowly defeat Cuatro Estrellas 7-6 on The Duke’s Ground. 
Additionally, the Guards teams which were knocked out of the tournament after the league stages had the opportunity to play for The Claude Pert Cup, named after former military player who was the Polo Manager at Guards Polo Club from 1957-1975. This year’s Claude Pert Cup winners were Christian Oberschneider and Ana Escobedo's Ojo Caliente/La Golondrina who beat Nick Beitner’s Pink Power, 8-4.
