Cool Beans & Welsh Guards

The sixth annual Square Peg Polo Challenge was yet again fantastic success. Hundreds of people turned up to support the 1st Battalion Welsh Guards.  Spectators dealt with the unpredictable ‘summer’ weather in a very ‘British-fashion’ as some brave souls carried on picnicking throughout the mid-way downpour.

 

Eight teams travelled from across the South East to compete for much coveted Square Peg Trophy and Claymores. Winners of the Trophy and contemporary outdoor beanbags were Hincha Pelotas in the 2-Goal.  Captain Chas Taylor’s team were evenly matched against home team Sussex Polo at 4 goals all at the start of the final chukka.  Then Hincha Pelotas turned up the gas and sped to a victory of 7-4Best Playing Pony was awarded to “Squeaky”, Niall Donnelly’s beautiful five year old grey.  Zul Junus, playing for KSJ -2 team was awarded Best Playing Amateur across the whole tournament.  In the -2, KSJ had an even match against Empires but won 7-5 overtaking in the final chukka. 

 

For the second year running, Toby Addison, aged 12, and former winner of the Rupert Thorneloe Memorial Trophy at Pony Club has committed himself to fundraising for the Welsh Guards Afghanistan Appeal. On Sunday at Sussex Polo Club another £2,000 was donated bringing his fund-raising total to date to £5,500.
