The Copenhagen Cup

Record number of school teams competed

Bad weather may have disrupted The Copenhagen Cup during the weekend of 20 and 21 May at Guards Polo Club, but nothing could dampen the spirits of the eight teams taking part in this Schools’ tournament, the first time so many squads have taken part. The Guards Polo Office quickly reorganised the competition into a round-robin affair which saw Wellington, Millfield, Cheltenham and Radley playing for The Copenhagen Cup. First up were Cheltenham taking on Radley, with the winner securing a spot in The Copenhagen Cup Final. Cheltenham took the honours, defeating Radley 2-0. This lined them up with a Finals’ match against Wellington, who had defeated Millfield 2-1. Wellington, featuring The Polo Magazine’s Most Valuable Player Ned Hine, were 1-0 up at the end of the first chukka. Cheltenham put their name on the scoreboard in the second chukka, but Wellington were on a roll, firing through three more goals in flying form to secure a 4-1 win and The Copenhagen Cup. Ned Hine’s mare Toyota scooped up the Polo Times Best Playing Pony prize.
 
Harrow, Eton, Stowe and Marlborough took part for the Copenhagen Shield and in the first match it was Harrow to play against Stowe. The Harrow boys had clearly not lost their winning form, taking this match 3-0 and securing a place in the Shield Final. Their opponents in this next game were Marlborough, who had defeated Harrow’s old adversary Eton, 3-2. In the Shield Final itself, it was neck and neck throughout the match and 2-2 in the final chukka. It looked like it was going to go to a penalty shoot-out, when in the last seconds of the game, Charlie Cadogan calmly slotted a perfect penalty to secure a 3-2 for a jubilant Harrow.
