England v The Americas Teams Announced for St. Regis Test Match – Saturday 16th May – Cowdray Park
England team announced for The St. Regis International Cup
at Cowdray Park Polo Club
England’s team has been announced for the first senior international match of the UK polo season presented by Cowdray Park Polo Club and The Hurlingham Polo Association on Saturday 16th May, when England will face The Americas in the eighth running of The St. Regis International Cup.
Leading England and playing in the number 3 shirt, will be 7 goal player James Beim, who has taken over the England captaincy in 2015. He is joined at number 1 by 6 goal player Richard Le Poer and at number 2 by Max Charlton, at 24 years of age considered to be one of England’s rising stars. The experienced James Harper, 6 goals, will play at Back, completing a strong 26 goal line-up.
Once again, St. Regis Connoisseur Nacho Figueras, 6 goals, will feature in the overseas side, which will be captained by 8 goal Chilean player Jaime Huidobro. The team also includes Mattias Torres Zavaleta, 7 goals and 5 goal player Manuel Elizalde.
In 2014, in a team which featured both Beim and Charlton, England beat a tough South American side 11½-8 and this year’s encounter looks to be just as exciting.
As well as the high octane polo, visitors can make the most of the trade stands, bars, food and entertainment. Front row picnic positions and entry tickets may be purchased in advance at www.cowdraypolo.co.uk. Entry on the day is £15, under 12s free, and there is free parking.
