Sedgefield boys help the North East take bronze

Boys ’96 National Inter –regional championships –Basildon Sports Village Essex

25th -26th June

Joe Barker (13) and Nick Gowland (14) of Sedgefield represented the North East region playing alongside team mates from big city clubs such as Leeds. Sheffield, Castleford, Huddersfield and Halifax. Our lads contributed well and the team played some excellent polo winning 5 out of 6 of their group games and only losing to eventual tournament winners the North West. In the semi –finals North East were beaten by a strong South West side and in the 3rd and 4th place playoff game they beat the West Midlands in a close and thrilling match to take the bronze medal. The North West narrowly beat the South West in the final. Well done to our lads, good effort!
