The Bryan Morrison Trophy. Arena Polo Test Match - England v USA at Westcroft Park Polo Club & Academy in Chobham, Surrey

International Arena Polo Test Match - England V USA This year Hickstead was all set to run its 10th International Arena Polo Match, England V USA, until the weather decided otherwise. Hence the switch, at the last moment, to the Westcroft Park Polo Club & Academy in Chobham, Surrey. England's team members were Chris Hyde (Team Captain) - Arena Handicap 9, Sen Dawnay – Arena Handicap 7 and Eden Ormerod – Arena Handicap 6. Team Total 22. USA's team members were Pelon Escapite (Team Captain) – Arena Handicap 8, Shane Rice – Arena Handicap 7 and Tommy Collingwood - Arena Handicap 6. Team Total 21. The crowd was treated to an excellent game, consisting on 4 Chukkas, with end-to-end action. The scores were very close at the end of each chukka and it wasn't until the last that England crept 4 ahead, with a final score of 14 - 10 in England's favour. Commentary was enthusiast and informative, as always, by Seb Baker.
