Pennine A start their title defence

Pennine A & B polo teams started their Yorkshire League Season last night. Players were trying to remember when Pennine last didn’t win the league. The A team’s start suggested whenever it was it’s likely there is another on the way. 7-4, 1-0, and 4-1 victories over FOA B, FOA A and White Rose A made for a reasonable start even if the team never really got out of 2nd gear.

The B team on the other hand still believe they are as good as they used to think they were. Disappointingly throwing away (literally) half time lead over FOA B to lose 7-2 and 2-1 defeat to rivals White Rose A, again conspiring in their own downfall passing to the opposition under their own unguarded net. The evening finished well with a 6-1 victory over FOA A and 12-3 victory over White Rose B. It seemed that for the first two games the team just didn’t turn up!

A Team:- Chris Newbury, Michael Smith, David Edwards, Andy Davision, James Longley and Chris Quinn

B Team:- Daniel Bailey, Andrew Carden, Robert Edwards, Matthew Street, Tim Bland and Peter Beverley
