2017 Inter-Regional Competition for U18

Our Water Polo section were away this week-end in Watford

at the Inter-Regional Competition for U18.  The South West team comprised of players

from all over the Region, with four of our Newton Abbot boys selected:-

Haydn Woolley, Oliver Wright, Thomas Manley and Toby Marks (who plays Bristol & West for us)

There were 9 teams all together, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, London, South East, North East,

North West & South West, with our SW team coming 3rd overall, in Bronze position!  SW

were strong in the semi-final to London, and looked liked they had the win until the final few minutes

when London placed 2 quick goals in succession with a final score of 2-3, so very close.  This meant that SW were then playing for 3rd & 4th place instead of 1st/2nd, but they played exceptionally well with a final score against North West of 7-2.

The winners were the North East, then London and then South West.

The boys did the region proud and they look forward to being part of the same team again next year, as they are all only 15 or 16 years old.
