Norfolk Polo Club Team wins the May Cup at Higham Polo Club 2014
Charlie Tighe, Peter Burton, Tom Townsend and Paul Bussey showed true grit last weekend, winning two tough matches to bring home the May Cup from Higham Polo Club.
In both cases against teams playing an Argentinian professional, they managed to contain them and ultimately come through and win despite being the underdogs in both cases.
Great performances all round, with Tom Townsend once again excelling as playmaker – an old head on young shoulders with the talent to back it up, a battling performance with some great runs in attack by Charlie Tighe and a feisty showing from Peter Burton, scoring the winning goal (which he would be too modest to mention). It was great to be part of the team.
Only marred by a slight off by Mr Burton, although the lake that has since formed in the crater has been named in his honour.
