NATIONAL 6 GOAL V.L. CHAMPIONSHIP (JUNIOR COUNTY CUP)
Glorious weather greeted spectators and players alike for the final of the National 6 Goal Championship taking place on Sunday 16th July between Chester Polo v. A.W. Jenkinson for the sought after Junior County Cup. A substitution had to be made in the first chukka as one of Chester’s players did not arrive in time and A.W. Jenkinson quickly took advantage and opened the scoring and quickly went into the lead by 3 goals. In the second chukka Chester struck back and at half-time Chester had almost caught up. Both teams fought valiantly with Chester just taking the lead in the last chukka but as the bell was about to strike a penalty was awarded to A.W. Jenkinson and Charlie Walton scored the winning goal to win by 7½ goals to 7 goals.
The Junior County Cup and prizes were presented to the winning team by Vannessa Jones on behalf of the sponsors Cheeky Chilli Events Limited and to Henry Smith the Most Valuable Player and to Best Playing Pony “Charlie” owned and ridden by Jamie Thomas.
