England to play USA for the Townsend Cup tomorrow

An England arena team will play the USA in California tomorrow

THE ENGLAND LINE-UP of Sebastian Dawnay, Max Charlton and Oli Hipwood will play the USA for the Townsend Cup tomorrow.

They will face the USA line-up of Billy Sheldon, Rob Yackley and arena ten-goaler Tommy Biddle at Empire Polo Club, in California.

The Townsend Cup was last played for in 2011, when it was won by the USA in California. England last faced the USA in an arena Test Match in March 2012, playing for the Bryan Morrison Trophy  at the All-England Polo Club. England lifted the trophy after winning 12-9.

A British Schools and Universities Polo Association (SUPA) university team will play a USPA Intercollegiate side at Empire Polo Club tomorrow. This will be the first time SUPA have fielded an international arena team.

Three-goalers Charles Scott and George Shelton from University College London, Alexandra Jacob of Royal Agricultural College and one-goaler Sam Browne from the University of Cambridge will play for Britain.
