Game 1 result
England 99s have lost out to Ireland 12-11 (2-2, 2-4, 2-3, 6-2) in a very tight opening match at the North Sea Cup in Aberdeen.
England put in a fantastic performance and led against the senior Ireland team for most of the match but a strong final quarter for Ireland edged them in front with around a minute remaining.
Coach Ian MacCallum commented after the match: “It was a disappointing end to the game for us, after all the hard work to get into the lead, we ran out of energy and mistakes started to creep in. We have the next game against Wales later today to put things right.”
Plenty of positives to take from the game and live coverage of future matches on Periscope is available by following Joan Dundee @Joan_dundee on Twitter.

Welcome to the June edition of our Water Polo News. These continue to be challenging times with the country still gripped by the coronavirus pandemic, and largely locked down at home throughout May. Swimming pools have been shut for over 10-weeks and the national and international water polo fixture list has been cancelled until further notice. However, the water polo community is made of strong stuff and it hasn’t let the pandemic stop training or dampened the great spirit we have come to expect of our athletes and coaches.
