June 2009

Squad Updates

Senior men's Squad:- Captain Steve Fairhead, Vice Dave Bush
Following a slow start to 2009 with several players having left the club during 2008 this squad has gone through a transition stage with several new members being welcomed into the club this squad is showing signs of being competitive again for the later part of the year with some respectable results including 4th in the recent Lady Richmond Brown Tournament and a close defeat against a very strong City of Southampton side in their last game of the Hampshire league season .

Senior Ladies Squad:- Captain Pauline Lipscombe, Vice Hannah Chilton
This year the squad have combined with Worthing to enter the London league and with one weekend left are favourites to win their division on a local level the Basingstoke team have had notable results against the Dorset County side and West London Penguin ( a side containing some national league players)

For more detailed reports see our match reports section.

Juniors ( born 1991 or later):-
have combined with the rest of Hampshire squad to enter the London League with the majority of the squad aged 15 this is seen as a long term development for them so far they have competed well against some strong side with current GB squad members they still have 2 tournaments to go but with a bit of luck are looking good for a 3rd place finish.

Youth squad ( born 1995 or later) :-
from their first weekend or London League Tournament they only lost 1 game and are joint top of the league and are certainly hoping to push on and now win the title with 2 weekends to go 12th July and 13th September

Academy squad ( Friday junior session):-
this is the entry squad into the Waterpolo section we are always looking for new starters anyone as always welcome to just come along and give it a try. For more details/ squad times see http://www.bluefinspolo.co.uk/about-us/overview
