Real Club de Polo set to represent Spain at the ABN AMRO Junior EHL

Real Club de Polo’s Under-14 boys will be the Spanish representative at the ABN AMRO Junior EHL 2018, qualifying for the second consecutive year.

The Barcelona club won their triangular tournament, played over the last three weekends, ahead of Atlètic Terrassa and Club Egara.

At the Eduardo Dualde, Polo started slowly, losing 2-0 to Atleti in the opening game but a later 2-1 win for Egara against their Terrassa rivals and a 3-1 success for Polo against Egara meant each side had three points on the board after the first weekend.

At the Can Salas, Atlètic moved top with a 2-1 win over Polo and a draw with Egara, moving up to seven points; Polo beat Egara 2-1 to move them onto six points with Egara on four.

Finally, at Pla del Bon Aire, after a 1-1 draw between Atlètic and Egara, it opened the door for Polo to snatch the top spot which they did with a 1-0 win over Atlètic.

Polo join HC Bloemendaal in the ABN AMRO Junior EHL competition with the Dutch club winning their qualifier against SV Kampong and HC Rotterdam.

They will battle it out with representatives from Belgium, Ireland, Germany and England at HC Rotterdam next Easter in the tournament that runs in parallel to the EHL KO16 from March 30 to April 2.
