England beat USA to win the Townsend Cup

The Townsend Cup changes hands for the first time since 1923 as England win on USA turf

ENGLAND LIFTED THE Townsend Cup for the first time in its history this weekend, after defeating the USA.

The England line-up of Seb Dawnay, Max Charlton and Oli Hipwood beat the USA 11-10 in overtime, at Empire Polo Club, in California. 

England took an early lead, but the USA team – Billy Sheldon, Rob Yackey and Tommy Biddle – levelled the scores in the second half. By the end of the fourth chukka the score was 10-10, sending the match into overtime. England scored first to secure the win and the Townsend Cup.

England have now won two consecutive arena Test Matches against the USA, having lifted the Bryan Morrison Trophy in March 2012 at the All England Polo Club, Hickstead.
