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
