City of London Boys’ School are U18 Water Polo Champions

The City of London Boys’ School U18 water polo team were crowned National Champions in March 2013 having won the English Schools’ Swimming Association Water Polo Championships held in Walsall.

City of London Boys’ School were unbeaten in their earlier rounds against Torquay Grammar (5-1) and Manchester Grammar (9-3). They comfortably overpowered Haberdasher Aske’s (7-1) to qualify for the final.

The final was a rematch between City of London and Torquay Grammar. It was a tense and close affair with both teams struggling to gain any ascendancy but by half-time City had broken the deadlock with a well rehearsed extra man attack and led 2-1. In the second half of the match City began to draw ahead and, despite a well worked goal by Torquay in the final minute of the match, went on to win 4-2.

City of London Boys’ School team thoroughly deserve their title of U18 National Water Polo Champions following five years of hard work. Congratulations should also go to their coach Brendan Silcock
