Watford drawn in Grp B opened their five match campaign against Beckenham and won 9-3, the team then won the next three matches beating City of Birmingham 7-3, City of Leeds 8-2 & Northampton 6-2.
With City of Manchester also winning their opening four matches the teams final match against them would decide the group winners. Manchester proved far too strong as they ran out 7-1 winners.
This disappointing lose shouldn’t take the gloss of a great days polo as the team are now into the last eight.
The format for the next round will see the eight teams split into two groups of four. Each team will play three group games with the top two sides in each group progressing to the finals weekend to be held in Liverpool in April..

Watford U19′s team was:
Will Chapman, Rushil Shah, Petar Djordjic, Yalin Gulen, Matyas Molnar, William Morris, Adam Page, Adam Lecombre, Jack Gibson, Zak Kovacs, Joshua Mills, Elliott McHugh
