On the 1st/2nd July Harvey Mitchell captained the South West team in Liverpool
On the Saturday were the group games where the team lost by 1 goal to the eventual winners 4-3 and then also drew with the eventual runners up 6-6. Then came the dominant 17 – 5 victory over Wales and a 2-3 win over the East. This meant after day 1 the South West ended 3rd in their group of 5.
On the Sunday the team played their first play off against London and narrowly lost 7-9 meaning their final game was the 7th/8th playoff. The South Wests campaign came to an end with another tight game but ultimately missing out 13-12 to end up 8th overall.
Although ending up 8th this does not reflect the standard of WaterPolo played by the team because all the games were so close any team could have ended up winning. Congratulations to the North East winning the competition and the runners up South East
Harvey was nominated MVP for his efforts in the team over the weekend for scoring numerous goals, his defensive and play making skills. Also a mention to Kristijan Dobnjak from Cheltenham for his fantastic efforts in goal across the tournament.
